Release Day Blitz and Review: Bad Wolf by Jo Raven

Another amazing new book by JO RAVEN!

Who is afraid of the big ...


This is no fairytale…
Once I fell in love with a gorgeous boy next door.
Years later, he’s back—a total hunk, hot as hell, and bad. So bad.
Rude. Arrogant. Hard.
And I’m dying for a taste.

Jarett was our neighbors’ adopted son.
Handsome, strong, quiet, he was my protector, and my friend.
Now he’s back, and he’s still gorgeous.
Tall, dark and s*xy. All man.
But he’s a bad guy, moving with a dangerous crowd.
So why do I keep winding up in his arms?
On his lap. In his bed.
I know better than this—I’m better than this. I should stop.
Only my heart tells me there’s good inside Jarett.
That I could save him.
Then again, what happens to gullible girls who climb into bed with the big bad wolf?

Jo Raven is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, best known for her series Inked Brotherhood and Damage Control. She writes edgy, contemporary New Adult romance with sexy bad boys and strong-willed heroines. She writes about MME fighters and tattoo artists, dark pasts that bleed into the present, loyalty and raw emotion. Add to that breathtaking suspense, super-hot sex scenes and a happy ending, and you have a Jo Raven® story.

I've read quite a number of books by Jo Raven up to now and loved each and every one of them. They are intense, the characters are flawed and far from perfect, authentic and real. 

The Bad Wolf is another one of those amazing books, that draw you in and don't let you go till the end. Jarrett, our hero, definitely has been dealt a bad hand by fate. Not only has everyone died who meant anything to him but he also has to deal with his foster brother who he is trying to protect. How do you protect someone who is his own worst enemy? Things get dark but somehow Gigi, our heroine who has been carrying a torch for him ever since they were kids, still sees some good in him. Deep down.

Over and over Jarrett proves that he may be a bad boy but that he has a good heart but will that be enough when the real bad part of his life comes calling? Torn between his love for Gigi and his promise to protect his brother, Jarrett will soon have to find out where his alliances lie - and how he can free himself from a life that he doesn't want. 

Even though I understood why Jarrett acts the ways he does it drove me crazy every time he made the wrong decision, every time he chose the wrong people.... up until it is too late. Maybe.

I loved those characters a lot. Jarrett is an amazing character, you can feel his dilemma, you can feel how much he cares for those around him and how much he wishes for his life to change and despite that, you still understand why he acts the way he does. 
Gigi on the other hand is tough, but also sweet and caring, she loves the bad boy and trusts him but she isn't naive about it. She doesn't believe that love will conquer all and unicorns will rule the world but she doesn't give up hope. 

And her family, wow, they are a wonderful! This is what family is about, you care for your family and you help them, you are there for them but it is mutual and implies respect and love for the others. This close knit family is a sharp contrast to the family Jarrett has. 
This is about loving someone and believing in him, about trust and respect and being there for each other and it is also about those who don't have it and those who sacrifice their own life for someone else.  Love, family and friendship and the ability to believe in someone will change Jarrett's life...will they?

I loved this book! Just, well, if you mind strong language this book is not meant for you but if you don't have a problem with it, well, go ahead, read it, it's amazing!
