10. Confidence: What’s sexier than a man who’s strong, powerful, knows
what he wants in life and how to get it? Bad boys are bristling with testosterone and driven to
achieve their goals, whether that’s conquering the board room or the bedroom. Plus, bad boys
LOVE women who are a perfect match for them—meaning a gal who’s just as strong, feisty,
and sexy as he is (whether she knows it or not).
9. Generosity: He’s a giver, a guy who loves to please and is super good at
it too (wink). A Bad Boy understands his woman is unique and each time he’s with her it’s
special. The sensual journey is a mystery, but it’s guaranteed to be amazing when both people
mutually surrender to the magic between them. Bad boys understand and respect that gives
and take and it only adds to their wicked powerful attraction.
8. Communication: Despite his flaws, any good Bad Boy knows how to
communicate with women. He doesn’t hide what he’s thinking and feeling. And sure,
sometimes it might not be what the heroine wants to hear, but he’s honest.
7. Instincts: Bad Boys know when the time is right and they’re not afraid to
take action. This applies to all aspects of their life, especially love. A good Bad Boy knows
when the proper moment presents itself, and he hits his mark, every time.
6. Independence: You’ll never catch a Bad Boy whining about problems at
work or an ex, at least not out loud. He’s a grown man who takes care of business. He’s an
adult who knows the best relationships thrive when both people are equal partners.
5. Alpha without being an A-hole: Bad Boy heroes can be assertive alphas
without crossing the line. Yes, he can get under the heroine’s skin and be selfish it’s never
about him. It’s usually because being with his woman has triggered something painful from his
past, a wound that needs healing or a goal that needs achieving. The heroine, of course, will
help him get not only what he wants, but what he needs (even if he’s too stubborn or blind to
admit it at the time) because they are better together than apart.
4. Chemistry: Bad Boys feel that spark of connection, and not just
physically either. They’re sexy and they know it, but it’s more than that. The best Bad Boys
really get their heroine on an intellectual level too, especially when it comes to humor. They
can make their heroine laugh like no one else and still discuss deep issues with them like a
pro. Being with a smart and funny woman is like crack to them.
3. Wild side: Bad Boys live life to the fullest and take the road less traveled.
Whether that’s a dive bar or a favorite diner or a special weekend getaway to Chicago with the
woman they love. They have a sense of adventure in all they do. They are all about exploring
new paths and finding the answers to life’s big questions. Their heroines should hang on and
enjoy the ride.
2. He’s HOT: ‘Nuf said. (fans self)
1. Passion: The fire inside any good Bad Boy is passion. He’s fiery and
formidable, which is intoxicating for the heroine (and perhaps he’s more like her than she
knows). His passion can also bring some suffering along with it, but when it comes to the best
Bad Boys, pain never hurt so good!
Melody Bryant has heard it all before. Sure, she's the epitome of the stereotype for a librarian.
Loves order. Loves rules and deadlines. Loves books. But what she doesn't love is still being a
virgin at twenty-four. Unfortunately, the only guy she's ever been interested in turned her
down flat. And then left town. Eight. Years. Ago. Ugh.
Now her birthday is fast approaching and she just can't take it any longer. She's finding a guy
before her birthday in five weeks or she's adopting two more cats and fully embracing
becoming "the crazy cat lady."
But when her latest date ends in epic failure--everyone thinks of her as the "proper librarian,"
she realizes what she needs is to ruin her reputation. And she knows the perfect guy to help
her: the baddest bad boy in town. This Army vet won't know what hit him...
