The Bad Boy Experiment by Reese Ryan | #BookReview @ReeseRyanWrites @HarlequinBooks #ContemporaryRomance #NetGalley

The last man standing has finally fallen in love!

The Bad Boy Experiment is the last book in The Bourbon Brothers series but can be read as a standalone. I had the pleasure of reading and reviewing other books in the series. To read my review of A Reunion of Rivals, CLICK HERE, and of Waking Up Married, CLICK HERE.

Reese Ryan’s books are fun, full of family cheer, and tastefully steamy.

Our thanks to the author and Harlequin for the advanced reader’s copy.

Book Description

A steamy fling with an old crush who doesn’t do commitment? What was she thinking! Find out in the conclusion to Reese Ryan’s Bourbon Brothers series.

What happens when you say yes to a bad boy?

Even if divorcée Renee Lockwood were willing to give love a second chance, she wouldn’t choose Cole Abbott. The sexy, successful real estate developer doesn’t do commitment. But he’s perfect for a no-strings fling—exactly what Ren needs now that she’s moved back home to raise her son. Mind-blowing pleasure with the man she once crushed on is harder to quit than Ren expected. Impossible, in fact. Is time running out before the bad boy bolts…or will the results of her experiment surprise her? 

From Harlequin Desire: A luxurious world of bold encounters and sizzling chemistry.

Cole was a favorite of mine from the previous books in the Bourbon Brothers series, and I always thought he was a sweet and caring man despite his bad-boy exterior.

He finds his match in his high-school nerdy friend Renee Lockwood, who now is a scientist and a recently divorced mom of a special-needs child.

The relationship between Cole and Renee’s son Mercer is so sweet, and he adorably cares for both mother and son.

As with all the other books in the series, the pages were on fire! (lol). The chemistry between Cole and Renee and the angst of their repressed feelings were over the charts.

I loved everything about their romance, friendship, and the opportunity to revisit all the Bourbon siblings and their spouses.

A lovely ending for an incredible series!

Disclosure: I received an ARC of this book via NetGalley for an honest review.
