The Bad Boy’s Girl
by Blair Holden
Genre: YA Romance
Release Date: February 21st 2017
Tessa O’Connell is a girl as ordinary as they come-or so she thinks. Her aim for senior year is to keep her head down yet somehow manage to convince her childhood love Jay Stone to love her back. What she isn’t prepared for is for Jay’s brother, Cole to return to town and change the life she’s always been seemingly content to live. Tall, gorgeous as all hell and a bad boy with ocean blue eyes and the perfect edge of adorability, he was her greatest tormentor, her number one enemy.But the guy that’s come back is like no one Tessa’s ever come across. He challenges her, he tests her limits, he forces her to bring out the girl she’s long ago buried under a veil of mediocrity and most of all he compels her to consider that perhaps the boy that infuriates her to the point of no return might just her guardian angel.

I wasn’t prepared for how much this story would affect me on a personal level. I read the blurb but didn’t know how moving, poignant and special this story would make me feel. The Bad Boys Girls is a beautifully written story that not only deals with loving a bad boy but also deals with bullying and alcohol abuse. The characters themselves made me fall in love but also made me ugly hate as well, I forget how cruel people can be.
I’m not going to tell you what happens in this story because going in blind worked best for me. Cole and Tessie have a strained relationship but these 2 together made this story a good one. The author slowly unravels this unique pair and we see both of them flourish together. Bullying is an ugly thing and the author doesn’t sugar coat it but brings it to the front lines. We get to see how damaging the Effects of bullying can be but also with the right support how to take control.
I won’t lie I cried and cringed while reading this book but I also laughed, smiled and believed as well. Cole is the definition of a bad boy but there was so much more to his character. Tessie was brave, strong, fragile and insecure but we see this girl grow so much throughout this book. Blair Holden uniquely and beautifully tells the story of learning to trust and how to stand up for yourself despite others cruelty. This was a great story and I lost myself while reading it and couldn’t put it down. Highly recommend!
