Two sets of gorgeous twins, a weekend alone together in a remote, picturesque, rural cabin with plenty of alcohol…what could possibly go wrong?
Figuring out the blurred lines and tangled mess of relationships grown out of a deep, lifelong friendship that is now somehow exploding with sexual chemistry…along with a very real subtext of something MORE? A four-way, multi-directional attraction between you and your twin and the other two twins who’ve been your best friends your whole life and are now suddenly sexy as hell and VERY into you, and your twin?
Can it be double the pleasure and double the fun, or is it just double the pain and double the heartache?
Badd Luck is the 5th installment of the Badd series from Jasinda Wilder and, in her usual fashion, she consumed me from the start. I’ve loved the Badd’s ever since I read the first book. They’re hot as everything, but it’s so much more to them than that. They have this cohesiveness that you only get from being in a big family who respects each other. I love their unity and the relationship between all of them is really something to admire.
Badd Luck is the twins, Corin and Cannan’s, story. This installment is mostly focused on Corin with Cannan’s being the next one, Badd Mojo. The twins, coincidentally, have some pretty intense feelings for another set of twins, Tate and Arie Kingsley. The four of them were friends when they were kids, but each set of twins kind of went their own way once they all graduated high school. They all kept in touch here and there, but nothing too close… until the girls decide to move back to Alaska.
“You saw the twins,” I said, gesturing at my torso with a fierce grimace, flexing my muscles dramatically. “They’re jacked, stacked, and sexy as fuck. I almost had a spontaneous orgasm just looking at them.”
Right from the start, things are crazy intense. The twins find themselves at a secluded cabin in the woods and decide to get tore up drunk, which leads to things they wouldn’t have done otherwise. Both sets are conufsed about who should be with who because they quickly realized things aren’t how they were back when they were kids. For me, the book quickly took an awkward turn. I understand completely how they could mistake one for the other, especially while intoxicated, but it just didn’t sit well with me in general. The overall story was intereting because I love these brothers so much, but this particular storyline isn’t my favorite. I stuck with it because I know Jasinda is an amazing storyteller and I respect and look forward to her work.
Characteristically speaking Jasinda continues to outdo herself. You get more than just the twins; you get a little glimpse into the other brothers’ lives. This is one of things I will always love about Jasinda; she makes a book feel like home to her readers. When speaking of Corin and Cannan specifically, I love them just as much as the others. Their lives are so unique from the rest of the family and it’s clear that even though they may be twins, they are still individuals with different needs and wants from life.
I wanted to love this story as much as I loved the other guys’ HEAs but sadly, I couldn’t. I felt very conflicted with the pace of it all and then the ending completely left me with more questions than answers. I’m assuming this is the reason Corin and Cannan’s book were released so close together…because we, readers, were left with a few “huh” moments there at the very end.
Overall, I loved the twins, but I wasn’t too fond of how Corin’s story played out. I’m really hoping that Cannan’s gives me what I need.
