Book Review: 'Bad Boy's In Blue' by J.L. Beck
Wisconsin author J.L. Beck has penned over thirty different novels, and novellas - steamy romance with alpha males, strong heroines, and instalove that always comes served with a happily ever after. Here she partners with Kylie Carter, a mother of three little ones, and a proud wife to her supportive hubby. In Kylie's spare time when her little ones are sleeping, she's writing while binge watching reality TV shows.
Some authors create a storyline before slipping into the erotica. Such is not the case with this book BAD BOYS IN BLUE – aptly named, by the way, when we meet the main characters…. Instead, JL and Kylie start their novel with an intense, very steamy, erotic scene that they manage to replicate throughout this book. ‘There was one thing I wanted for my twentieth birthday. Actually, two things. I wanted to lose my virginity, and I wanted it to be with the McGuire twins. The two hot bad boy cops that patrolled the city, and my college campus. They were twin brothers that I had gone to college with, well, before they graduated. Now, I was living vicariously through their social media posts. I was what you would call a social media stalker. “We're going to get you happy for your birthday.” Haley mumbled through a full mouth of grilled chicken salad. “Yeah, right? You know that’s on my birthday wish list though, so I hope you’re right.” I said after swallowing a gulp of soda. “I know… and I'm going to make sure that happens because that’s what best friends are for, Elyse.”
Their synopsis pulls it together – ‘I’ve been a bad girl. A very, very bad girl, and I’ve got a wish or more like a demand. I want the McGuire twins to share me and rumor has it they’ve done it before, but now that they’re the two big, bad boy cops I’m not sure they will. They’re all about protecting and serving but the only thing I want them to protect and serve is me. And then I do something naughty enough to catch their attention and they give me an ultimatum they know I can’t refuse: I can either spend the night in jail or spend the night in bed with both of them. It’s a dream come true, handcuffs, batons, and two sexy bad boy cops, but will one night be enough for the three of us? With my body cuffed to their bed, and at their mercy, I’m not sure I’ll ever want to be a good girl again. After all being cuffed to the bad boys in blue has never felt so good.’
If pure erotica is the core of you search for a quick read, look no further. The writing may not be sophisticated but it ‘gets the job done’ – very well! Grady Harp, October 17
