The Bad Boy Bargain – Kendra C. Highley


Baseball player Kyle Sawyer has many labels: bad boy, delinquent, ladies’ man, fearless outfielder… Only one of them is actually true. But then sweet ballet dancer Faith Gladwell asks him to help wreck her reputation, and everything goes sideways.

Faith knows a thing or two about love, and what she had with her cheating jerk of an ex wasn’t it. When he starts spreading rumors about her being an Ice Queen, Faith decides it’s time to let a little bad into her life.

Lucky for her, Kyle Sawyer—dark, dangerous, totally swoonworthy Kyle Sawyer—is landscaping her backyard over Spring Break. Shirtless. And if she can convince him to play along, “dating” Kyle will silence the rumors.

But Faith’s plan threatens to expose Sawyer’s biggest secret of all…and that’s a risk he’s not willing to take.

My Thoughts

I would like to thank Entangled Teen for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

When I read the blurb of this book I was instantly interested because it had sounded so interesting but now that I’ve finished the book I’m disappointed with how the plot developed.

Those of you who follow my blog will now that I hate writing reviews about books I can’t decide if I 100% love  but I found this book very cliché. In my own opinion it was your typical American high school story and it didn’t really move on from that.

I really enjoyed the fact that the author put the guy in the stereotypically women role, in the way of being nervous and talking to the girl whereas the girl was much more confident. I always love it when authors break stereotypes!

In The Bad boy Bargain the author had a chance to really develop the story and allow me to connect with the characters and this was through the Kyle’s dyslexia however this did not happen. I felt like it was not explained enough and when it was not in enough detail, it was just portrayed as a struggle. I understand that wasn’t the main focus of the story but if it was going to be used I feel like it could have been included better.

It had a lot of potential especially with the awful ex-boyfriend but I just didn’t connect with this book in the way I thought I would. I think it was aimed more at younger readers.

Rating: 3/5
