Blog Tour + Excerpt + Giveaway + Review: Bad Intentions by Nacole Stayton

Title: Bad Intentions
Author: Nacole Stayton
Genre: Mature NA Romance
Release Date: August 6, 2015

She’s careful, but wants to be reckless. 
She’s cute, but wants to be sexy. 
She’s innocent, but wants to be bad.

When ex-Olympic gymnast, Adaley Knight wakes on her eighteenth birthday she only has one wish, to leave the only town she’s ever known and start fresh.

Finding herself enrolled at a college across the globe, the once modest Adaley is almost unrecognizable. Her new persona dances on the wild side by sinking her teeth into the first bad boy she sees. The only problem is he’s not the least bit interested.

Ryle Benson, baseball extraordinaire and brooding campus bad-boy keeps everyone at an arms length. Things have never come easy for him and the last thing he needs is getting involved with any female.

The tables are reversed as she tries to be bad, tempting fate, and he tries to fight his. The push and pull is half the fun. But what happens when one pushes a little too hard?

This is definitely not your typical love story. It is not boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, cutesy romance. Adaley and Ryle REALLY work for it. Thing is ... Ryle works in the opposite direction. He pushes Adaley further and further away. Adaley has always been a good girl .. the preachers daughter. She dressed pure and acted wholesome. She was a gymnast, on her way to being an Olympic gymnast as a matter of fact. One time coming off of the bar did her in. It ended her dream and her career in one foul swoop.

So -- she headed to college in Louisiana. On her drive there, Adaley decided that she is a new found woman. No longer will she back away from an argument, or allow herself to be walked on. She wanted to have fun and find herself a bad boy. The moment she was walking down the hall in her new dorm, she ran into two boys and she couldn't help but notice how hot they were. She meets her roomate Zoe, and immediately has an altercation with her, that only ends in fits of laughter. Then they walk in ... the boys... THE boys! One is Zoe's brother Tank, and the other ... an extremely hot, low keyed bad boy. He didn't say much, but she would get it out of him in due time.

Her first night, they go to a party and Adaley starts becoming her new "self". She likes what she represents so far. Not taking no for an answer and standing up for what she believes in. Not to mention .. getting who she wants. As in the words of Tank "Ryle-mother-effing-Benson." However, he seems as though he doesn't want any part of her. Calling her names, slamming doors in her face, kicking her back pack across the room. He seems like a 6th grader tormenting the little girl he has a crush on. I just don't think Adaley will give up that easily. Her old self may have, but not now! 

Is Ryle really this rude and hateful guy, or is this way of protecting her and keeping her at arms length? Will this is all end in a love story? If Ryle comes around, will it be too late for Adaley? The banter between the two will definitely have you hating Ryle, He's rude, crude and treats women like a piece of meat. You have to stay with it and see what is inside of that head of his. Nacole kept my interest up. I read this book in one sitting and really, really enjoyed it, As I said before, it is not your typical love story and that is why I loved it as much as I did. She doesn't follow the norm, and I can't tell you how refreshing that is. 

Pick up your copy today and enjoy Adaley's story!

“Dare.” Ryle’s voice is cool, calm and collected as he mumbles his answer, like there isn’t another option.

“I dare you to—” Bradley’s interrupted by several females shouting in unison. “Take off your shirt!” 

Ryle nods his head to the adorning crowd and grabs the rim of his shirt. Everyone with lady parts around the fire starts to drool. Me included. His movements are slow and sensual, and he doesn’t even bat an eye. Apparently removing an article of clothing in front of a crowd is a typical thing for him to do on a Saturday night. My needy eyes take notice to the “V” that waves hello to me as cloth is lifted from his body.

I melt.

Literally. My body fills like goo, and I wilt until nothing is left but a puddle of want and need.
“Ow ow.”

“Sexy beast.”

I feel like I need to wash my ears out. Rolling my eyes, I snatch Tank’s drink out of his hands and down it. Bottoms up.
