Book Review: Bad For You By Abbi Glines

Bad For You
(Sea Breeze #7)
By Abbi Glines

Innocence was never meant for the addictive…
Addiction was something Krit Corbin accepted as part of his nature a long time ago. He decided to embrace it and flip his finger at the rules. Women had always been the number one thing on his list of addictions. He couldn’t get enough. Being the lead singer in a rock band had only made access to his favorite addiction that much easier.

Being alone was the only thing Blythe Denton understood. The small town minister’s family that raised her hadn’t accepted her as their own. The minister’s wife had always made sure Blythe understood just how unworthy she was of love. When Blythe is sent away to college and given a chance to finally be free of living as an unwanted burden, she looks forward to having peace in her life. Being alone isn’t something that bothers her. She escapes reality in the stories she writes.

However, the ridiculously sexy tattooed guy who keeps throwing parties in the apartment above hers is driving her crazy. For starters, he doesn’t treat her like she would expect a guy with a different woman always hanging on his arm to treat someone as uninteresting as her. She looks nothing like the gorgeous women she sees parading in and out of his apartment, but for some strange reason he keeps showing up at her door.

During a party at his apartment, Krit’s new neighbor comes to the door with her long brown hair pulled up in a messy knot and a pair of glasses perched on her cute little nose. She wants him to turn down the music, but he convinces her to stay.

Krit Corbin may have just found his biggest addiction yet. And Blythe Denton realizes too late that she’s finally been claimed.

My Review:

This was a cute short read. I wasn't really expecting much because I didn't particularly like the other books in this series that I picked up. So when I found myself liking this it was pretty surprising to say the least.

Blythe (oh how I strongly dislike that name) was a sheltered and abused girl. Though she tried to be strong, she was actually more awkward then anything else. She had never had friends (thanks to small towns and their gossip), or a boyfriend. Heck, she barely had a parent who didn't give a bleep about her. By the end, it seems like she overcame all that with Krit by her side.
"In my stories I could be beautiful. The prince would love me, and I would know how it felt to belong."
Krit is the extremely sexy rocker/next FLOOR neighbor. He's the male whore who gets it in his head that he needs to change because of Blythe. As much as I liked him and want to believe in faerie tales, I still have a hard time believing that a guy could change because of one shy girl. Call me a realist or a pessimist, I just have a VERY hard time believing you have to change to be with someone. In his case of course he had to change, but would that realistically happen? I'd like to say yes, but I can't.
"Blythe wasn't Jess. She was innocent and ... h*ll, she was precious."
I liked Tisha (Krit's sister). She was the take-no-sh*t kind of person and I found that awesome! I was glad that she helped Krit and Blythe at the end of the novel to resolve the last issue between them (though it wasn't necessarily an issue that couldn't be dealt with without her involvement).

Favorite Quotes:

"No need to worry about the one girl you wanted to actually talk to and wasn't a used groupie. You made sure to shut her out."

"Krit, meet jealously. It's a bitter b*tch."

"Good girls should stay away from the dark corners. Temptation will always lurk within the turn. Keeping you pure may be the only thing that redeems me. But I never asked not to burn."
