Badd Business by Jacinda Wilder

42422335Remington Badd…he’s just as big, just as BADD, just as foul-mouthed and filthy-minded as his brother Roman. But under that rough and wild exterior lies a secret.

Juneau Isaac, a Yup’ik Inuit, is the daughter of a hiking guide father and a mother who creates works of art and sells it to the tourists. The first to go to college—the first to leave her family’s ancestral home near Ketchikan—Juneau feels a deep sense of obligation to her family, to ignore the real passion that beats inside her.

A roughneck smokejumper with an artist’s soul hidden deep inside. An artist living a false life, harboring secrets and fostering forbidden passions.

Can these two find their way to living their truths while navigating the tumultuous waters of a whirlwind romance? In a battle between familial obligation and secret dreams, will there be room for love—not to mention the wild intensity of uncontrollable lust—in these closed-off hearts?

Remington Badd falls hard for Juneau Isaac in this story.

They meet at the hospital, where his dad is being treated. Rem makes a fool of himself at the hospital. When he sees Juneau again he is unprepared for what he sees. He likes it a little too much! His pursuit of Juneau is childish at best, with the taunts and how he acts around her. Juneau isn’t true to herself. She is living a lie. Her real passion isn’t law, its art. Only that’s now what her family wants her to do. Things between Juneau and Rem heat up. Will it be a one night stand like Juneau thinks and Rem hopes? Or will this be a lasting relationship?

I wasn’t a fan of Remington. He was too childish for me. I found nothing appealing about him, other than his longevity. But he was crude and rude, I saw no appeal to that. Kudos for Juneau who did. She was rather boring herself. In the end, I did like her, but it was sad that she couldn’t just be herself all the time. I felt terrible for her.

I highly doubt that I will be reading any more from this series.
