Six years ago, a positive pregnancy test destroyed Ava. Her goals, her relationship, the entire way she viewed her future.
From the rubble, a rule was created: No bad boys.
In their wake is chaos and destruction, something she could no longer risk.
Ava has been happy with this rule, until now.
The bad boy across the hall makes her want to abandon it. Those hazel eyes piercing her, as though they can read her mind. That gentle smile as he interacts with her son. Dax awakens something in her that she’s never felt before.
Will she regret opening her heart to another bad boy?
Dax is determined to earn back the respect he lost for himself years ago and create a future he can be proud of. He’s spent his life breaking rules and now he has a rigid set of rules to live by.
Ava is a distraction he doesn’t need.
Nothing like the women from his past, everything about her from her adorable son to the paint constantly covering her hands reminds him of why he needs to focus. He knows the look in her eyes, he fights the urge to give in to that look. He doesn’t deserve it, at least not yet.
Will Dax ever feel like he’s earned it, or will a call from his past cause him to push her away for good?
Rules are meant to be broken. The No Bad Boy Rule is a standalone novel. It is Book 2 in the Rule series. NA Contemporary Romance.
This is the second book in the Rule series. They are stand alones, but I suggest you read them in order. This was an enjoyable read and series. It’s definitely a series I will continue to read.
Ava is Lucas’ little sister. She just started at the college, but she only lives there part-time because of Noah, her five-year-old son. She had him when she was sixteen.
Dax is Andie’s older brother. He is a reformed bad boy, to an extent. He wants to be better and he’s honestly trying. He’s attracted to Ava but he doesn’t think he is worthy of her because of his past.
“We all have things in the past we aren’t proud of. Things we feel shame over. Things no one knows. At some point, wouldn’t it be nice to know theres one person who knows everything and is still there for you? Whether it’s a friend or a lover, it doesn’t matter.”
Ava has a no bad boy rule. But for Dax, she would break that rule.
Their relationship moves very fast, but it works for them. I did like both Ava and Dax. Ava is a great mom.
