I was a Sixty-Eight Whiskey—a combat medic. So when I hear someone shout “MEDIC!” training just kicks in. It’s automatic, immediate. I don’t think I even saw the guy whose leg I tended to, not really. All I saw was him. Zane Badd. His tuxedo fit him like he’d been sewn into it, and his eyes reflected the fury and the hardness of a combat veteran, but when he looked at me, he just…softened. By the time I had his brother patched, Zane and I were both covered in blood, and I knew I had to have him.
The trouble with Zane isn’t getting him, it’s keeping him.
And the trouble with me is, even if I could hold onto a man like Zane, I wouldn’t know what to do with him. It’s not in my nature, and if life has taught me anything, it’s to not trust anyone, least of all men like Zane. He’s a warrior through and through, hard, muscular, gorgeous, tenacious, and yet oddly tender toward me.
Experience and instincts are telling me to run from Zane Badd as fast as possible, but my heart and my body are telling me to stay, to hold on and not let go. Yeah, it’s a conflict as old as humanity itself, but it’s brand new for me.

Life as Navy SEAL doesn’t exactly prepare you for normality. Yeah, I can tend bar and goof off with my seven crazy brothers, but what do I do when the woman of my dreams—dreams I didn’t know I’d had until I saw her—explodes into my life like a frag grenade? I’m trained to attack, to win, to survive at any costs, and figuring out what to do about a woman like Amarantha Quinn will take every scrap of tenacity and courage I possess. Combat is easy, it turns out, in comparison to facing your own fears and scars.
And then sometimes, just when you think you’ve got it finally figured out, fate throws you a screwball and sends everything FUBAR.
If you like your heroes a little naughty, a little bad ass, and a whole lot of sexy then look no further. Zane Badd is your man. Jasinda Wilder has given us a fun, dynamic family of brothers, each with their own story. This is the second in the series and follows Navy SEAL Zane and former army medic, Amarantha Quinn.
Quick hook-up? No problem. It’s what comes after the hook up and finding out if these two have what it takes to overcome their own obstacles. The banter between the brothers is sometimes obnoxious, as brothers will be. The emotional connection between Zane and Amarantha is where Jasinda Wilder hooked me. She brings the heat bubbling to the surface with these two fierce characters.
If you read Bad Motherf*cker (book 1) then you know that there is a lot of language throughout the books because that’s how these guys talk. Badd Ass is no different, although I think there is a ton more d*ck talk in this one. At the heart of the story is Amarantha and Zane’s love story and let’s just say that sometimes it’s not easy for a tiger to change its stripes. But, Jasinda has given us a fun, over-the-top love story that will leave you smiling.
Part erotic romance + part romantic comedy = another Badd Brother off the market and another fun read from Jasinda Wilder.
