Teaser 1: We both look at each other as her face falls. She doesn't want to hurt me, it's clear in her eyes, but she's going to.
Teaser 2: "He's moving out soon, but I can't just throw him out. He's Aarabelle's father. Jesus, he's been tortured and God knows what. It's our home, " I try to explain to him.
Teaser 3: "Robin can't fit two kids in the back." I call this to his attention and the shock ripples his face. "That's not even funny if you're telling me what I think you're telling me." I turn slightly so I can watch this. "You and Robin are going to need to come to some kind of understanding. You're going to need a new woman." "Robin is mine and I am hers." "I thought I was yours," I raise my brow.
I loved Joanna Wylde and her writing style. Her books are perfection. Silver Bastard was a great quick read for me. Once I picked it up, I could not put it down. I had to know what was going to happen with the characters. I had some problems with it but overall it was still a good book and I can't wait for the next book in the series. I love how this series is different than her other series the Reapers MC. It isn't about a MC but a town and the people that live there. I loved all the characters. Joanna Wylde did not disappoint with this book.
I don't remember the Silver Bastard in any of the Reapers MC books but past characters from those book make an appearance in this book and I was a little confused. It seemed like the two MC were close but I don't ever remember them being mentioned. I remember Puck but I didn't know he belonged to Silver Bastard. I feel like I should read the other books again just to see if they're in them.
Puck was hot and sexy. Becca constantly said she couldn't figure out what he was but I think he was hot. He saved her and was madly in love with and didn't even know it. He watched and protected her for 5 years. If that doesn't say love I don't know what does. Becca was a little annoying. She couldn't figure out what she wanted. It drove me crazy. One minute she wanted Puck, the next she didn't. I could only guess how Puck felt with her mood changes. Becca had a habit of over explaining things and that was a little annoying too. I know that's how the character was written but it was still annoying nonetheless.
Puck and Becca's chemistry was crazy hot off the charts. From the beginning that had some serious chemistry no matter how hard they fought it, it was there. Once that got together, they were explosive. They had some very steamy sex scenes. Becca was one lucky lady. Puck was loyal to Becca. He kept her save and he made it known to her how much he wanted her. He was also a little bit of an asshole. He would only think sometimes with one head and it wasn't the one on his shoulders. He didn't care if they were arguing or if Becca was mad, when he wanted it, he wanted it right then.
I didn't like Becca's mom or step-dad or their role in the book but I guess the book needed a plot and drama and that was them. I am glad her step-dad got what he deserved in the end but I wish her mom would have gotten something. She played Becca and let her step-dad treat her bad and did nothing. Becca's mom is suppose to protect and love her but all she loved was her drugs. I don't really like parents like that. And I don't like reading about them.
I can't wait for the next book in the series. I hope it comes out soon. There are some people I would love to read about. Maybe, Danielle or Shane. There were some serious great side characters in this book that would make great lead characters for the next book.
I love the Neighbor From Hell Series. I can't get enough of this series. It's one of the best series I have read. I love all the Bradford men and I can honestly say I would have a hard time picking my favorite man. I love their obsession with food and yes it's an obsession. They can't enough of food; it's a little crazy. I love food and eating just as much as the next person but they take their food eating serious.
Double Dare is just like most of the other books in the series. Crazy food obsessed Bradford man. It's funny, hot and has a hint of seriousness to it. Darrin is a hot sexy cop that isn't afraid of a little dare. Marybeth has been around the Bradford boys ever since she was a kid. Their craziness and food loving selves can't scare her away. All the Bradfords love her and consider her family. Some of the past characters make appearance in this book. Mostly, Jason and Trevor and a little Danny.
Darrin is in love with his best friend Marybeth. He has always wanted her even though she's just in it for the sex. I could tell Marybeth wanted Darrin just as much as he wanted her, she was just too in her head. It drove me crazy. I wanted to scream at her and strangle her at the same time. Marybeth is a strong woman. Everything she has gone through since she was a teenager has made her the person she is. Darrin has a fun side and I loved that about him. It seems all the Bradford are funny and love food.
While I loved this book, there was something missing that made it great. The first couple of books in the series were wonderful but with the last couple of books, something is missing and I can't figure it out. I know in this book I didn't like how the sentences just ended during mid sentence. It was annoying. I want to read complete sentences. The book jumped around a little and I didn't like that too much. Double Dare starts with Marybeth and Darrin already hooking up and I would have like to read how that came about. It said how they met and became friends but ended there. Also, Darrin gives Marybeth a choice, get married or they're done and then the next chapter they're married. It didn't say how that happen or anything. I would finish one chapter and the next chapter would be talking about something else and I felt like I missed something. It was a little confusing. The book was said to be read after The Game Plan but I don't think that's really necessary. They are two complete different books that just share some characters.
The next book in the series in Reese's story and I am looking forward to that one. I hope it turns out great like the first couple of books in the series. It does look promising.
