Country’s hottest bad boy.
That’s what they call me. My label ate it up until I became “too bad” for the good folks of country music. That’s when Hard Candy Records picked me up and took a chance on me. Probably not their smartest move, but I won’t tell them that. Especially when they’ve assigned me a babysitter to try and keep my ass out of trouble. One smart-mouthed, unimpressed, sexy as homegrown sin, Addy Mae Masterson.
She likes to pretend that she doesn’t like me and I like to let her.
I may have a past that haunts me and she may have a habit of getting attached, but damn if I don’t want to show her just how good this bad boy can be.
I love to read. I love many genres, just like music but like music there is one that I can't always get on board with and I know what a lot of people will say..."WHAT! But it's so good." Yes, this may be true but idk I have never really been a fan. Of what you ask? Country music, cowboys and country singers in books. Put the pitchfork down, I am just telling you my truth. Now look I have tried many times over but for whatever reason they just seem to be meh for me until Beau!
Beau McCrea is a bad boy, he is also a country boy who's family lives on a ranch so I guess he'd be a cowboy? IDK but anyways he's also a HUGE Country singer. Now usually I am like I'll pass but for whatever reason i just wanted to read this book. I have never read anything by Mandi Beck but I was like I'll read this and mind you I didn't read the synopsis...LOL I know you are all like WTF do you mean you didn't read the synopsis? I didn't! All I saw was the cover and I was like okay I want this and I want to try her books so here I am.
FUCKING HELL AM I EVER GLAD I DID!!
Now I have seen the cover for Stoned and I was like YOOOOO I need this. I get I am reading them out of order but you know what IDC! I loved this book. I loved Addy and Beau. And I have no clue if this book is part of one series or another but all I know is that the characters were legit. The story is legit. The authors words and storytelling LEGIT!
Addy is feisty and won't let anyone put her in a corner. Beau is all kinds of fucked up but put them together and BAM! Things happen. Now if you have been here long enough you know damn well I love the sexual tension and build up...This book DID NOT DISAPPOINT.
I will never be able to say I don't enjoy certain genres because authors like this come along and slap the stupid out of me. Beck made these characters loving and enjoyable. And yes, while I was reading I was doing it in a southern drawl...sue me.
Mandi Beck has been an avid reader all of her life. A deep love for books always had her jotting down little stories on napkins, notebooks, and her hand. As an adult she was further submerged into the book world through book clubs and the epicness of social media. It was then that she graduated to writing her stories on her phone and then finally on a proper computer.
A wife, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband and boys in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met.
