Book Review: Bride Of The Bad Boy

Author: Elizabeth Bevarly
Title: Bride Of The Bad Boy
Publisher: Silhouette Desire
Publish Date: January 1998
Rating: 4 Stars
Book Blurb: BLAME IT ON BOB: Endicott, Indiana is gearing up for a very big event - the "Welcome Back, Bob" Comet Festival - and you're invited to join in the festivities. Heroines Angie, Rosemary and Kirby were all born the year Comet Bobrzynyckolonycki passed by the earth, directly above their hometown. And legend holds that if a person born in a year of Bob's passing makes a wish the next time the comet comes around, then upon Bob's following visit to the planet, that wish will come true. This time it will happen for three adult friends who sent wishes skyward when they were fifteen years old.

Angie's wish was for something exciting.

Angie Ellison had just married a gorgeous mystery man in a hastily arranged wedding ceremony. Clearly, the folklore about the comet passing by her small town was true--it affected everyone's morals! Surely that was why she was looking forward to her wedding night with one heck of a bad boy ....

Sexy undercover agent Ethan Zorn wasn't interested in silly comet lore, shotgun weddings or sticking around this crazy town once his assignment was over. But he also knew it wasn't the comet making him act like such a hot-and-bothered newlywed in love. It was Angie....

BLAME IT ON BOB: The comet passes through once every fifteen years...but leaves behind a lifetime of love

Review: This was the first in the three book mini-series Elizabeth did for Silhouette Desire back in 1998. It is a cute story with Angie Ellison out trying to be a sleuth, and really not doing to well.

She really thinks Ethan is a mobster and she won't take no for an answer. It really makes you wonder about her intelligence, especially when you find out who her source is. She definitely wouldn't have made the crime beat on a real newspaper.

Ethan is doing his best to keep her out of the loop for fear she'd get hurt, because there's definitely chemistry between these two from the minute he finds her on his bed, after a rather sad break in attempt.

These two really hit it off despite their being at odds for obvious reasons. Yet, when Ethan gives her the truth about his job, Angie freaks.

Doesn't make much sense to me.

Thankfully the comet gives them their happily ever after.

I've read another book in this series and I have to say that it had a much better storyline, though this one was very cute. Now I just have to hunt down the one book I haven't read!
