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?
Stephanie’s 5 Star Review:
I received a copy of this book from the author.
This is my first 5* read for 2018. Xavier Badd has been a favorite Badd Brother of mine the whole series and to finally get his book and learn more about him was fantastic.
There’s so many questions answered about X in this book. I loved the brotherly advice Sebastian, the eldest Badd, gives Xavier in this novel.
Meeting Harlow aka Low is the miracle Xavier needed to be able to live a life of love. Not only for himself but for a woman. Full of distrust and suspicion Harlow broke through all those walls.
Whereas all of Xavier’s brothers had to make some grand gesture to win their women back – Xavier and Harlow just needed a push in the right direction by the right people.
As their secrets are revealed in this book the love for these characters, as a reader, grew. Everyone should have someone to love them no matter their quirks or disabilities.
I think anyone who reads this particular Badd Brother novel will gain a new appreciation for Xavier and what he, and people like him, live through on a daily basis.
