Overview

I'm Harlow Grace, the newest, hottest face of Hollywood sex appeal, the woman every man wants and every woman wants to be... and I'm running away. I need an escape. I need to get away from the pressure, find somewhere I won't be hounded at every step-an impossible thing to ask when I'm on billboards everywhere, from LA to Laos, Japan to Jakarta, Sydney to Siberia. So, I buy a yacht and hide out in the most obscure, remote, and unexpected place I can think of: Ketchikan, Alaska.

Instead of a peaceful vacation, however, what I find in Ketchikan is trouble. The kind of trouble that's six-plus feet of nerdy hotness I can't resist. I mean, who could? He's a genius with no idea how attractive he is, an enigma of contradictions: awkward yet confident, fascinating and flirtatious, yet aloof and evasive of physical touch.

He's utterly and deliciously sexy in every way-and oh, so innocent.

* * *

I can recite all of The Iliad and The Odyssey in the original Greek. I can do advanced mathematics in my head and memorize entire books with ease. By the time I graduated high school I had been scouted by several international soccer teams and recruited by think tanks, the NSA, and the CIA.

All of which is totally useless when a woman like Harlow Grace is standing in front of me, trying to talk to me, flirting with me, touching me. She's Helen of Troy-a woman with a face that could launch a thousand ships, a woman wars are fought over.

It turns out she's not just beautiful-she's famous. A Hollywood sex symbol. A superstar known all over the world...

And yet somehow she's interested in me?

Glad I read all of the books in order. You can feel the story about Xavier and Low while reading it. You just want it to go on and on. I also want to visit Ketchikan.

## WOW. This book is so different from the others and I love that. There is way more story than sex which I also loved. No problem with hot sex, but some books are so inundated with it (Zane & Mara i.e.). Xavier is special in so many ways. Do I think he could handle Harlow's life in Hollywood? Oh hell no. But it's fiction, so I suspend my disbelief a tad. And was Harlow a little full of herself? Oh hell yes. But at least she was likeable (unlike Clair & Joss). All in all, it was an emotional story that kept me turning the pages well into the night. I can recommend this book and book 1. The ones in between, not so much.

A Cinderella Story,.. Hollywood starlet gets away on her fancy boat to Alaska where she meets one of the Badd brothers... After a fling he follows her back to Hollywood (she on the boat and he on his motorcycle).. Fun read but not a lot of substance...

While I enjoyed all the Badd boy’s stories over the past year, I thought no one could top the twins. However, I was terribly mistaken. This journey Jasinda has taken us on over the past 8 books has been such a fun and exhilarating one, to see each of the Badd brother’s lives unfold one after one and intertwine throughout all the books. You keep getting glimpses of the other characters and it’s truly made this a journey and not just reading another book. While I am sad to see this group of dominate, sexy and brooding brothers in Alaska come to and end, Jasinda couldn’t have ended this in a better way! In the last book, Badd Boy, we get Xavier’s story. The youngest of the bunch, at just 20 years old, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this story. Young immature males are what immediately comes to mind. However, that is not what we are given! We are given this smart and very intellectual man who surprised me at every turn. His instant connection with Low, or Harlow, was so fierce that I thought my phone was going to catch on fire. Her curiosity in him is a very interesting thing to behold. She is intrigued by him from the moment he rescues her, and their journey from there is sweet starting off, but soon picks up to a point of heart palpitations. I am truly sad to see this all end, but am so grateful I was able to go on this journey with all these characters throughout the series!

Badd Boy is the 8th and final book in the Badd Brothers series. In my opinion it was also the best. The story of Xavier and Harlow was sweet and not as insta-love as the other brother's stories had been. Xavier is the youngest Badd brother and he is very intelligent and almost awkward compared to the smooth talking older brothers. He does not know what to do with himself when he meets Hollywood starlet in hiding, Harlow. She grows to care for him very much and gives him confidence that he was always lacking. I am sorry to see this series end., but I'm sure Jasinda will move on to something else equally wonderful.

Well, Jasinda Wilder has yet again blown me away! This has to be one of my all-time favorite opposites attract novels to date. I was so excited to finally get Xavier’s book! I knew it would take a very special woman to win his heart, and I was right…Low is very special indeed. Anyone who has read any of the books in the series knows that Xavier is unique. He is the youngest and the most intelligent of them. Whereas his siblings have a good deal of experience with women, Xavier doesn’t. He is too busy building his robots and absorbing knowledge. Low changes all of that. She is a successful, famous star, and has come to Alaska for a much-needed rest. When Xavier helps her, she is pleasantly surprised that he has no clue who she is. Xavier is in awe of this beautiful woman and confused by the warm and fuzzy feelings she brings out in him. Low is intrigued by him and wants to know who this man really is behind all that intelligence. Xavier is somewhat of an enigma. Just looking at him, a woman would very much appreciate his physical beauty. He is drop dead gorgeous just like all his other brothers. When he opens his mouth, you see he is much more than good looks. He is intelligent and shy. He speaks very formally, not at all like someone who is a similar age. He thinks of himself as socially awkward, but I see it as humbleness. It’s all those things combined that made me fall for him just like Low did. Wilder’s creation of Xavier is what sets this book apart from other books in the romance genre. It’s refreshing and sexy to see a man that isn’t just looks but smart and honest. The things he said to Low melted my heart even further. “You are so beautiful that you actually, in the literal point of fact, make it hard to breathe.” “If you were somehow to become even the slightest amount more lovely than you are, I would pass out.” Low is a memorable character in her own right. She has worked so hard to become the success that she is. Like a lot of celebrities, she has tired of all the stress, lack of privacy, and most importantly tired of trying to determine which people genuinely care about her…not her status. Even though she was famous, there was something down-to-earth about her as well. Instead of shunning Xavier because he is so different than other guys, she genuinely appreciates and loves him. She gets him to own his uniqueness, and he loves her for who she is. He could care less about her being famous (when he does find out). Their scenes together were so heartwarming. For instance, I adored when he took her fishing for the first time. I could feel her exhilaration and excitement. It was nice seeing her so carefree. As always, the sex scenes are steamy, yet sweet and emotional. I could definitely feel their emotional connection. I haven’t written too much about the plot itself. As with all of Wilder’s books, the plot was amazing and kept me thoroughly engaged throughout the entire book. As with all of the books, I loved the seeing all the Badd brothers and their ladies again. They always make me laugh, and I feel like I’m catching up with old friends. WOW!!! Wilder certainly threw me for a loop with that epilogue. I thought I was going to have to say good-bye to my favorite brothers, but it looks like I will be seeing them again. Can’t wait for Badd Kitty!!! ***Read and Reviewed for Devilishly Delicious Book Reviews***

A love so sweet... and sizzling! They say the best is always left for last. I may argue a wee bit as each book in this series has been a whirlwind of all the things that make me love reading! Warm characters and heated romance surrounded by loving (and chaotic) family. What was not to love? Even though I went into this last book with a quiet sob of mourning I knew it was Xavier’s story and I have been waiting (im)patiently for it…. Xavier was quiet with not a lot to say but he still managed to somehow shine bright even among his larger than life brothers. Not that he was any less handsome or sexy. Far, far from it. He also cornered more than his share of the uber-smart market as well. He was sweet and earnest, quickly finding a spot in my heart early on. Diving into his story was pure pleasure… “…he challenges me mentally, keeps me guessing. He’s a mystery.” Xavier’s way of speaking, of communicating, was uniquely his own. Quietly funny and warm, he may not have much to say but when he spoke, volumes were shared in just a few words… When Low fell into Xavier’s life, in a happy accident that knocked both of them for a loop, he may have struggled for the right thing to say, but he had me hanging on every beautiful word. “You should never accept anything less than purest poetry.” Low and Xavier’s story was a mix of sizzle and heart, of heartache, that made me feel every emotion. Anger, sadness, bewilderment. So much to deal with by a soul that seemed too gentle to bear it. Yet at the end of the day strength won. Hard won strength that made me want to weep at the cruelty of life yet marvel at the human spirit’s way of letting love heal… Sniff… I can’t give away more than this snippet but this scene (like many) made my heart sink… And sing: “Like heaven. Like… home.” An emotional powerhouse that, as always, was balanced perfectly with humour and love. Always love… “…they assumed because of my looks that I was a dumb bimbo who probably spent half the morning staring at a carton of orange juice simply because it said ‘concentrate’ on it.” Just as I’m settling in to a series hangover, as I try to come to terms with no more BADD siblings left unattached… I see there will be more! More BADD stories to sink my kindle (and heart) into… *happy dance* **Reviewed for Nerdy, Dirty & Flirty

The final book in the Badd Brothers series was a little more emotional than I had anticipated. And I love when a book does that to me. This was definitely a great way to end the series. Full of feels definitely has become my favorite of the Badd Brothers. I also love that through out each of these books we always get to see the rest of the family and what they are up to. If you are a fan of the Badd Brothers then this is definitely one to dive into.

Best book of the series! I'm sad that this is the last book, but Ms. Wilder definitely saved the best for last. I loved Xavier's character and how he is portrayed; I've got a family member on the spectrum and his behavior is pretty much on par with Xavier. Ms. Wilder has managed to bring great character depth to each member of the Badd family and their respective loves, and the stories are all unique for each couple. The chemistry between Xavier and Harlow is great and they are the perfect balance for each other.

I knew reading Badd Boy would be bittersweet. Bitter because it´s the last book and conclusion in the Badd Brothers Series and sweet because I couldn´t wait for Xander to get his story. Badd Boy is Xander Badd and Harlow Grace´s story. Xander is the youngest of the 8 brothers. Sebastian, Zane,Brock, Baxter, Canaan, Corin and lucian all found their HEA,Only Xander is single, and he´s the odd one out. His IQ is very, very high, I teaches himself ancient languages for fun only and his brain never shuts down. And then he meets her, Harlow - Low - Grace. She´s Hollywood´s newest face, celebrity and star in the industry. She´s hiding out in Ketchikan and develops a great friendship with Xander. But when the paparazzi find her everything changes. Badd Boy is a great read. I loved meeting all the characters from previous books. I loved how Xander bloomed in Low´s light and vice versa. I connected very easily with the characters and I can´t say how much I love their story.

I absolutely adore this series - Easily one of the top 5 series I've ever read. The Badd Brothers are truly everything you could ever dream up in a book boyfriend and their stories are all amazing. But without a doubt the author has outdone herself with Xavier, the youngest of the brothers, story. It’s so touching and endearing that you can’t help but fall face first for Xavier and his “uniqueness”. Xavier Badd is a genius who has trouble handling most “normal” social behavior situations. He spend his time with his books, building/selling his robots and of course cooking at Badd’s Bar and Grill and totally avoids personal relationships of any kind outside of his brothers and their women. That is until he meets Low, the most beautiful woman he’s ever laid eyes on. But past experience and his “uniqueness” having him running scared when Low starts to show an interest in him. Low, better known as Grace Harlow the Hollywood actress, has escaped the camera and paparazzi and had docked her yacht in Ketchikan, Alaska. That is where she meets Xavier Badd. He fascinates and challenges her. But most of all he likes her for herself since he honestly has no clue who she really is. But can she break through his barriers she doesn’t understand? Xavier and Low’s story is tender and heartwarming yet heartbreaking at the same time. The socialite and socially inept are worlds apart yet fiercely drawn to each other. The story will have you smiling and wiping at tears as you follow their journey. But trust me it’s an amazingly written journey that you absolutely do not want to miss. I highly recommend reading the entire Badd series, as just like Badd Boy, you will not be disappointed and the storylines just keep getting better and better as the series rocks on. 2 Resounding Thumbs Up for the series and book #8 - very well done!

You know when you read a book & it gives you such intense feelings that gives you chills because you can relate to the main character so well? This is that book! I'm a total BADD groupie for these brothers. Every book Author Jasinda & Jack Wilder have given us in this series has captured my heart. All can be read as standalone but believe me, once you start any one of the brothers books, you will want to get to know all of them! Xavier... He is totally the best for last in this series. He is the youngest of the brothers at the ripe age of 20 but his intellectual mind and his raw and honest heart will have you claiming him as your favorite. When Xavier meets Low, his world of knowledge is thrown into a loop of highly emotionally charged feelings and romantic words that will make any woman swoon 100x hard when meeting him. Loved the build up and anticipation of finding out if Xavier can concur his fears that he has held within himself since a young age.
