Colt King has spent his whole life trying to prove he’s not the trash his hometown of Destiny, Nevada, thought he and his brothers were. As soon as he was old enough he left town, vowing to make a name for himself and never looking back at the place that looked down on him. But that plan goes out the window when his ailing elderly aunt asks him to come home.
He begrudgingly returns to help the woman who raised him. But he’s no longer the poor kid from the bad part of town. He’s the ruler of a custom car empire and a financial genius. He arrives expecting a boring stay, but when he walks into his childhood home to find a woman in nothing but her underwear pointing a shotgun at his face, he knows his trip home will be a memorable one. With his aunt sick and forcing him to help her restore her fledgling hair salon, he has more than enough on his plate. Colt has no idea that her sexy tenant, Zanna, is going to be the cause of his many sleepless nights.
Zanna Jacobs came to the ghost town of Destiny to stay out of trouble and stay the hell away from men. She’s got a serious thing for bad boys that’s she trying to kick, and when she lays her eyes on the brutishly handsome Colt, she knows he’s got bad news written all over him. He’s not the typical thug she goes for: He’s too clean cut, too good looking, and too cold–and when he comes to take over her salon, she’s not going to take it. Zanna decides to show him exactly who the boss is. Colt is used to people following his orders, and when Zanna challenges his every word he finds her infuriating and incredibly sexy. He can’t keep his hands off her…and knows that once he returns to Las Vegas, all bets are off…
First time reading anything by Jamison and although I enjoyed the characters and the plot of The Bad Boy CEO it quite a bit of issues for me. The Bad Boy CEO started off really well, it introduced the characters and you couldn’t help but get excited to keep reading. How can you not want to keep reading about hot brothers Colt, Duke, and Levi who own their own companies and race cars? Then add in love interest Zanna and matriarch Lolly and you have the makings of a great book. BUT it felt short and was too rushed at the end. In my opinion it was a short read and I could have read at least another few (or ten) chapters in order for the book to end without so many unanswered questions.
What happened to Colt’s business? Why introduce Grace and Ryder when you don’t even give them a semblance of an ending? What about sexy Levi and his flirtatious ways? I wanted some sort of answers or even a hint at what happened to everyone in their stories. Super bummed that the last quarter of the book went lighting fast in order to end the story. Things just did not tie up at the end and had it done so I would have rated it higher. The Bad Boy CEO had a great beginning and middle but did not like the ending.
