## PHENOMENAL. That's how I would describe this book. Wow. This book was so good that I'm still on a book high. First of all, the overview doesn't do this book justice. The only reason I purchased it, was because it was written by Meghan March whose writing I adore (I'll come back to that). Note to authors: book overviews & covers matter. Ryker and Justine were both amazing characters. I love that even though Ryker was a player before, that we weren't hit over the head with it. It was mentioned a couple of times, then let go. Because once Ryker set his sights on Justine, he was all in. He only wanted HER and he made that clear. Also, thank you Meghan for not writing Justine as the typical doormat heroine. I detest needy heroines. I love that she was smart, capable AND beautiful. Together, they had sizzling chemistry. You could feel their connection with every encounter. And the sex? Hot hot hot. Boy, can this guy dirty talk! I don't know how Ms. March does it, but she knocks it out of the park every time. She's an absolute gem and impresses me with every book. If you haven't read her "Beneath" series, stop what you're doing and buy those books now. And I recently discovered her "Dirty Billionaire" trilogy and fell in love with that as well. How about a deal Ms. March? You write, I buy. WIN-WIN.

It was a steady rad with slight bumps here and there. I enjoyed and would recommend for anyone who is interested in contemporary romance. the chemistry between the two main characters was great l, but some of the other characters felt thrown in and forced. I didnt like how what the dean had to say to R wasnt explained, I know it was most likely about the situation with his family, but it would have been nice to know, as well as what happened with him telling on K and what all she did with knowledge her mom gave her. The book has a happy ending, no cliff hangers

This was a story about an arrogant womanizing guy chasing after a woman for years and her constantly saying no because she doesn’t want to be another notch on his bedpost.  When circumstances throw them together, she can no longer deny their chemistry.    The story was good, a bit on the predictable side but it was enjoyable.  I am rating Bad Judgment 3 Boundless Stars.  Not my favorite my Meghan March but I still enjoyed it.

I enjoyed reading this book. Justine is a stubborn woman who has a hard time with trusting others and Ryker pushes his way in. There's persistence, happiness, sadness, betrayal and love involved in this book. Story feels original and catches you from the beginning.

Rating: 4.5/5 Not having read any other books by the author before, I was completely impressed with the story and the characters. Right from the very beginning we get to meet Justine, an struggling college student who has been working her way trough law school after all the hardships that she'd suffered growing up. While not living in the best conditions, she is proud of what she has accomplished thus far. But when the school's funds get cut short, they have to find a way to finance everything else, and the committee makes the decisions to revoke the scholarships of those that are not paying for the school. This completely devastates Justine, because she has no other way to pay, and an unlikely source comes to her rescue only to want something in return. One of the professors that she has offers her a job as his son's tutor in return he would pay her tuition until he knows that his son, Ryker is back on track on his studies. Now it all would have been fine with Justine, but Ryker happens to be the biggest player at her college, and getting him to stay concentrated is going to be harder than she thought. Ryker has always liked Justine, but after asking her out for the last couple of years, her answer was always no. He slowly becomes persistent in hopes that she'll say yes to him one day, but when he makes a bet with her everything starts to change. Now he has to find a way to get her to accept what they have and make it last. Through ups and downs, both characters have to face their pasts in order to move on, and as they spend more time together, they slowly start figure out that they might just be perfect for one another. All in all, I really enjoyed reading Bad Judgment, the story had me reading until the very end. I could not stop reading it, and it's all because of the undeniable chemistry that the characters have that will leave wanting for more. Justine is brave, smart, and kind. She knows what she wants, and is not afraid to get it. After what she went through growing it's evident that her goal is to get a career and make a name for herself. On the other hand, Ryker is handsome, sweet and caring. He has also dealt with a lot of emotional struggles growing up, but his looks have kept him busy in school. Not only is he popular, but having his dad work as a professor in the school has its perks. Now that they both have to deal with their pasts, they have to make a decision of whether or not they can be together or not. Filled with twist and turns, Bad Judgment will leave you swooning for the characters and the lovely ending. ;) ***ARC provided bin exchange for an honest review.***

This story took me places I never expected to go and it was so much more than I thought it would be! Once I started, it didn't want to put it down. It was full of smart & witty humor, yet in true Meghan March style it also stole a little piece of my heart and had me reaching for the kleenex to dry my tears. There was a couple of twists I never saw coming, and in the end every little detail is wrapped in neatly together for ending that filled my heart with pride and joy! While the characters make plenty of bad judgments, Meghan March certainly made none writing this story. I wasn't exactly what I expected, yet it was absolutely perfect!

Bad Judgment by Meghan March is a standalone contemporary romance about not-quite-friends who become lovers and secrets that can make or break a relationship. It is well-paced, well-written, and was an absolute joy to devour! Justine has never had it easy. With her con-artist parents ruining her before she even reached adulthood and her scholarship getting yanked out from under her the only bright spot in her life was her grandpa. He is gone and she is pushing forward into her third year of law school, bound and determined to make ends meet somehow. Ryker is privileged. His father is a supreme court justice and on the board of the law school he and Justine attend. Despite his father's wishes for his future, Ryker is having a crisis of conscience and doesn't want to be a lawyer or a politician anymore. While convinced to stay in law school he is less than willing t participate in any of his classes. So this is where Justine comes in - always pushing Ryker away in the past, determined to ignore his hotness in favor of studying and maintaining a perfect GPA, she has a chance to help him and herself and she is going to take it. But with everyone keeping secrets from each other and her past ready to yank away anything good she ever has, will this fragile relationship that is brewing between Ryker and Justine make it past the stage of physical or are they as doomed as they seem? Loved it. Meghan March is another MUST READ author for me and I haven't been disappointed yet! Enjoy!

Not seeing the page count, I opened the book and was a little taken by the number of chapters! Let me assure you that Meghan March does it again! The story sucks you so far in that I was finished in a day! Bad Judgment keeps you guessing and I loved the almost friends to lovers story! Rykers' chase of Justine had me laughing out loud!

You will not regret purchasing this book. I've been hitting the winning side of the fantastic book choices. With Ryker and Justine's story - you can miss when selecting their story. Meghan March offers everything you want in a great read: phenomenal dialogue, humor interlaced between characters, maybe a bit of a twist in the story. BONUS - completely relatable characters! Whether you've been in comfortable family life such as Ryker or struggled with what life hands you such as Justine, the reader is completely submerged in their character's journey to maybe admit they are ready to try this whole adult relationship out. Ryker is everything you want in a male character - strong, determined, protective yet vulnerable. Justine is my perfect female lead - strong, determined, self-reliant but willing to give in. It's not like these two don't have baggage. Oh they do. But Ms. March doesn't wallow in the angst to drag out the story. Its smooth, its even paced and its fun. If you are a fan of Meghan March's works, you are going to LOVE this story. If you are new to her, this is a wonderful introduction. As you can tell, I devoured it. 5 out of 5 stars.

3.5 stars! There isn't a Meghan March book I don't love and Bad Judgment was no different. Ryker Grant and Justine Porter are in law school together and Justine has done everything in her power to avoid a date with Ryker for the past two years. Until something happens that could affect her receiving her degree and she begins to tutor Ryker so that she can continue on her path to becoming a lawyer. I love a strong heroine and Justine is so focused and determined. Watching these two interact was so much fun! While Ryker has always known what he wants, I liked watching Justine let down her hair and think of something outside of school. Yes, she is a hard worker which I admire, but it was good to watch her act her age too. The chemistry between Ryker and Justine was off the charts HOT! Ryker is that guy that the more you get to know, the more you see that there is something so special about him beneath the surface. He is patient, kind and studious - he is really the perfect type of guy! Witty dialogue, smart characters, and a unique storyline - Meghan March gives us what she is famous for...a well written book. I have read many of Meghan's books and I absolutely love that she gives us something different time and time again. And I look forward to more from her as she is one of my favorite go to authors!

Meghan March has delivered another sexy, intoxicating read! Bad Judgment sucked me in and held me hostage with a storyline that was refreshing and real. Justine and Ryker are college students from opposite sides of the tracks. A secret crush, a tragedy and lies put them on a path that will either destroy them our bind them together for life. Ryker is just trying to make his father happy. Attending law school and protecting the family by hiding a secret that could destroy lives has made him jaded and indifferent. Justine just wants to get through law school so she can make a difference in the world. Sometimes life has other ideas. But when obstacles are thrown in their path they will both do whatever it takes to get what they want. Bad Judgment is a fun, addictive read that had me laughing and left me wondering what was coming next. The chemistry between Justine and Ryker is off the charts hot the dialogue is light and funny. With a cast of secondary characters that are lovable and genuine, this is a book that I didn't want to end.

Bad Judgement is yet another fab read from Meghan March. This was a contemporary enemies to lovers read. It flowed really well and was one of those books that you have no problems getting into to and keeping your attention throughout. It was a nice easy read and one I was able to finish in one sitting. Of course it was hot and had romance but it also had a nice spice of secrets and drama to give it that little edge. I really liked the characters in this book and boy they had some real chemistry. One of the particular highlights for me was that their chemistry built and built from the start and when they came together, it was a real hot boom moment. All in all a really fun and enjoyable read and one I would definitely recommend. I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I feel like Bad Judgement is a little bit different that anything that Meghan March has written and I enjoyed it. I will admit that it took a little time for me to actually get into the story. It didn't instantly hook me like most of her stories do but once I really got into the bulk of the story, I found myself not wanting to put it down. I was intrigued. I feel like this topic covered a lot of topic from a troubled home to drunk driving. It conveyed a good message and I loved that Meghan March was able to tie it all in there. The book also took some twists and turns that I couldn't have saw coming with a ten foot pole- keeping my eyes peels and on my toes. It was an overall well told story- an enjoyable one at the least.

AMAZEBALLS! This brand new book by Meghan March is OUTSTANDING, SEXY, AND DELICIOUS! No one creates an alpha male like Miss March does and in Bad Judgement readers will get their craving of yet another alpha only an author like Miss March can create. The chemistry between Justine and Ryker are off the charts EXPLOSIVE! I loved EVERY single interaction, every single word, every dirty play that transpired between these two. I am OFFICIALLY addicted to another book by Miss March and I have already started to RE-READ it! UNBELIEVABLE! I only have a handful of authors that write stories that I IMMEDIATELY want to re-read and Meghan March has been one of them since the first book I picked up by her, Flash Bang! She gets BETTER and HOTTER with each book she writes and I become more enamored with her writing style, her characters, and her plots again and again. To say Bad Judgement is my new favorite would be correct. I seriously HIGHLY recommend this book...heck ALL HER BOOKS! Bad Judgement gets a HOTTER THAN HELL FIVE SHOOTING STARS! I LOVED and I mean LOVED Bad Judgement and I can't wait to see what is next.

Meghan March is the QUEEN of hot reads with heart. In Bad Judgment, March pulls on her own past as a law student to tell the story of law students who find love and challenges in being with one another. The plot is engaging and original: a law student who wants to finish her education but needs money to do so. She can become a stripper, or she can tutor a guy who is sure to be a major distraction to her. Except, the stripper thing washes out and all that's left is Ryker. And Ryker's father, who makes Justine's situation just a little bit easier to bear. And much, much harder at the same time. So, we have Ryker. Hot. Smart. Sexy AF. And major player. MAJOR player. Not the kind of guy a girl like Justine needs in her life. Except for the whole tuition thing, she'd just continue to stay away from him and study. But then other things happen and Justine's origins find her, as Ryker's family problems pop up for him, too. Ryker becomes a calm in the storm, at least for a little while. And it's a big storm. I'll leave the plot description at that, because I hate to give away all the good stuff. Suffice it to say that this book is worth the reading because Ms. March gets better and better and better with every outing. When you take her prolific production into account, that's amazing! This book is her best to date and only a glimpse of what's to come in three or seven or fifteen books down the road. Because in addition to being good and getting better, March shows no sign of stopping, either. Five stars for Justine, who sets her mind to a goal and never waivers. Even in the face of some pretty scary adversity, Justine keeps her eye on the prize - even when a hot man and even hotter sex come into the picture. Even when her goal moves further out of her reach due to circumstances beyond her control. Even when all seems lost, she finds a way to persevere in a personal goal. Thank you and all the writing gods, Meghan March, for writing a heroine who actively fights for the thing she wants and doesn't let a guy rescue her. I mean, there is rescuing, but she does it for herself! How refreshing is that? Five stars for Ryker, who plays the field because he can but recognizes when it's time to stop. For a guy who faces a difficult choice and makes it wholeheartedly. For an alpha who isn't so overbearing and controlling that you start out hating him. For a man who realizes that a determined woman not only doesn't need him to rescue her, but finds her enticing in spite of - or maybe because of - that. And for a guy who totally delivers the screaming O's. Those are important, too. Five stars for hot, smutty sex, for life-changing love, for pro-bono work, for legal aid, for honest communication, and for my favorite thing about Meghan March's romancerotica: the fight is always external. Two people against the world, fighting to make it work. The characters have their own issues, but they work them out; the battle to be together is always against a common adversary, not each other. I so LOVE that Meghan's stories include loyal friends, honest bystanders, realistic introspection, and situations that allow our lovers to fight FOR one another. You will find this book compelling enough to read in one sitting, and totally worth the time. You'll also find it fun, exciting, intense, sexy, and romantic. And totally enjoyable. So, get yourself a big glass of wine, sit down in the comfy chair, and enjoy Bad Judgment.
