Book & Author Details:
Bad Boy Blues by Saffron Kent
Publication date: 11th April 2019
Genres: New Adult Romance
Cleopatra Paige hates one thing in this world – just one – and his name is Zachariah Prince.
In grade school, he pulled at her pigtails. In middle school, he spread false rumors about her. And in high school, he ruined her prom.
She hates that his smirks are unfairly sexy. And she definitely loathes that his dark eyes seem to follow her everywhere. Sometimes, even in her dreams.
It doesn’t matter that he’s rich and popular or that he lives in a freaking mansion full of butlers and maids. He’s rude and arrogant, and she wants to stay as far away from him as possible.
But unfortunately for Cleo, she lives in the same freaking mansion as Zach.
Only he’s the prince and she’s the lowly maid who serves him.
Shall I be blunt? This shouldn’t work. There are too many types of relationship that this becomes: enemies to lovers; bad boy and the innocent; rich guy and the maid. Added to that, there’s Chloe’s naivete and Zach’s attitude, both of which are worn like a badge by their respective characters.
Despite all of that, or maybe because of all of that, this story just unfurls beautifully. Zach’s tightly restrained passion as a juxtaposition against Chloe’s eagerness plays just like dark against light.
But it’s the final, vulnerable declaration that pulls it all together.
