This is book two in the Modern Romance series and it features Kendall and Logan. He makes an irresponsible bet with a friend and needs her help before he loses controlling shares in his grandmother’s company. For me, this book didn’t get really interesting until after the halfway point. His and Kendall’s chemistry was explosive and extremely sexy. I love that he really got who Rory was. That was important! The first half of the story was full of unnecessary filler story. The second half of the story was fantastic! Logan’s character growth was impressive throughout the last half of the book, even though there were one or two disappointing moments. Mature Logan is much sexier! The friendship between Logan and Monty was touching. Nellie, I could’ve done without but I’m sure everyone’s got one of those friends.

Bad Love by Piper Lawson is the second standalone romance in her Modern Romance series. A story of romance least expected between Logan, the playboy heir and Kendall the single mother marketing guru that is assigned to help him win a bet that, if he loses, put's his family's legacy at risk. Well-written and well-paced this was a great story. The secondary characters were quirky and real. Rory was awesome - Bloody Hell - and I thoroughly enjoyed this. This is my first book by Piper Lawson but it won't be my last. Enjoy!

Single working mother + rich, swoony-worthy man + bets + 10,000 “toys” + cute kid = a fantastic read! Kendall is a single mom to an adorable boy, and Logan has to hope she can help him win this bet! This book had heat, humor, and romance. I really enjoyed the route the author took with this storyline and it flowed so smoothly! It is a dual POV read, the storyline is fun and a bit different, the characters are great, the romance and heartbreak are a wonderful combination…I just really, really enjoyed reading Bad Love by author Piper Lawson. 5 stars!

From the moment Kendall and Logan met, these two had a connection that was captivating. Logan seems like that self-assured guy with his charismatic personality and can-do attitude, but he often sells himself short. His family owns Hunters Cross and he works there but not doing the job he is supposed to. I was surprised by his lack of confidence in running the Marketing department but yet he has amazing ideas to push their product into the future. At his weekly poker game, he makes a reckless bet and now needs to sell 10000 vibrators in 3 months or lose his stake in the family business. Kendall is a very focused single mother that works hard to ensure her son has a great life. She also keeps a journal of activities she wants to do which pushes her out of her comfort zone. When her latest project ends up being helping Logan sell the vibrators, well, she is truly shocked. Logan truly pushes her out of her comfort which has her listening to “Bad Kendall” and embracing a part of herself that she has buried. Rory, Kendall’s son, is a beautiful light in this journey. His love of cooking is a wonderful thing and when Kendall realizes Logan truly sees her son for what he is passionate about, her walls to keep him out of her life truly begin to crumble. The real challenge is can Logan embrace responsibility and realize a relationship with Kendall is what he needs in his life. I enjoyed their journey and loved the layers that each character has with the issues they faced in their past that shaped who they were when they met. Even better is how they help each other reevaluate these areas to work towards something stronger.

Bad love was everything but bad. A great story between Logan guy who is on an important crossroads and hardworking single mother Kendall. They meet because a stupid bet and Kendall is doing everything that Logan wins. In the meantime, the feelings developed between them that is deeper than just a fling. Will Logan mature and will Kendall let her past mistake to ruin her chance for true love ? You will find that if you buy the book and read it yourself. Both characters great developed, likable. I loved Logan and how he develops. I loved the slow burn between them, the sexual tension. I also loved that book portraits that it is not late and impossible to find love again. I want to thank Author Piper Lowson who made it possible and provided ARC for me to read it.

At first I was thinking oh another single mom/billionaire playboy match up -- it's going to be so predictable. However, I am pleased to announce I was wrong. Yes, the book was those things but it was mostly a story of the sexual awakening of a women shrouded in guilt/shame from mistakes she made as a teen. After getting pregnant at 18, Kendall marries the baby's father because of pressure from her preacher father and the church. The marriage of course doesn't work. Shamed from her community for getting a divorce Kendall moves to NYC to get a fresh start for her and her young son. She builds an amazing life and career. Her son is flourishing with his own passion -- cooking. When given the opportunity to sell sex toys Kendall takes the practical approach. Too bad the playboy needing her to sell the toys is anything but. Modern and fresh this is a fun and engaging story -- with cast of well developed characters.

I thought that this book was laugh out loud funny, need an ice cold beverage hot and melt your heart sweet. Kendall and Logan may have been about as different as possible but I felt that they were pure perfection together. When a bet draws these two together, you just know things are going to get very interesting. I loved Kendall and Logan and I felt that their chemistry was amazing. Their banter was sharp and clever and added lots of zip to the storyline. Kendall's son, Rory was a true scene stealer. He stole my heart and cracked me up!! Add in the many "awww" moments he shared with Logan and trust me when I say, that this kid really brought something special into this book. Just an extremely delightful read.

Piper writes good stuff... and Bad Love is just her latest. Logan bets his share of the family company on pleasing 10,000 women - by selling 10,000 of his friend's company's vibrators. And he's counting on Kendall to help market them. That in itself promises a juicy story, right? Piper takes it further. There's not just chemistry, a bet and some vibrators - her writing brings these characters to life (Bad Kendall) and makes an insane situation realistic. She develops her characters so well, that you feel like you're a part of their friend group and experiencing the story first hand. I love her subtle glimpses back at characters from the first Modern Romance book. (You don't feel left out if you haven't read it... but do yourself a favor and go read it!!) The secondary characters bring this story even more depth and meaning. Rory melts my heart as the kid that doesn't fit inside the box. *ARC provided for honest review

I actually didn’t like Logan’s immaturity and responsibility-phobic mindset in the beginning of this story. A spoiled, super handsome, rich, ex model, who never took anything seriously. Gambling with his friend Nellie who was equally frivolous and entitled, their last bet was bizarre and childish. Going as far as putting his grandmother’s business and legacy at risk as he made the bet to sell ten thousand vibrators from Nellie’s company within a short period of time or give up his shares in her company. Kendall’s strong efficient skills are used to help him with this frivolous bet. As their work relationship grew, so did their personal one. I was impressed with the way the author developed both of their characters with each interaction. Before long, I was totally rooting for this unique couple and their HEA. By the time Logan met and interacted with Rory, the storyline was already a five star for sweet entertainment value. Logan and Kendall had their relational stalls with fear of failure and personal insecurities, but it was never over dramatized or tiresome to read. Intense graphic scenes that had me believing that Logan finally grew up with Kendall’s influence, as Kendall gained trust in herself and others with Logan’s love. A great read!

This is the first book in the series that I have read and I loved it. Each book can be read as a standalone. Kendall and Logan were such a great couple. They were so cute together. The chemistry between them was so hot. You could feel it coming off the pages. I love books that make you feel what the characters are feeling. This is why I read romance - stories like this. I was hooked from page one and I didn’t come up for air until it was done. I received an ARC of this book and I am voluntarily leaving a review.

If I could give a book more than 5 stars, this would be it. I was addicted from the get-go, I think it may be my favourite Piper Lawson book to date (in fact I know it is). I truly adored Kendall and Logan. Their story is sweet, sexy, and funny. Logan is a true man’s man, he parties, he goes to weekly poker night with his buddies and he loves and protects his family and friends fiercely. He also makes mistakes, but, I’ve got to say, he’s pretty great at owning them. One of his biggest mistakes comes in the guise of betting his shares in his family’s company on selling 10,000 vibrators. Enter Kendall to try and get him out of this mess, a marketing executive promised a huge cash bonus if she can manage to reach his goal. Kendall is a single mom, who works hard throughout the day day and dotes on her adorable nearly 9 year old son, Rory, by night. As a side note, Rory is pretty awesome and stole the show for me more than once. I don’t want to rattle on and on and bore you all, the synopsis says it all, I cannot recommend this book enough. Great writing, wonderful words and characters and a super fun storyline. This book can be read as a stand-alone, but why not read book 1, Easy Love, just to get the feel for this fantastic group of friends. I received an advanced copy of this book from the author. This is my honest review.

Piper Lawson proves that less than perfect can be the right fit. Bad Love tends to go in the most obvious of directions. Sure opposites attract, but what happens next? Logan and Kendall are a business deal destined for drama. He's a fly by the seat of your pants type of guy. Her feet were never meant to leave solid ground. He gets on her nerves, she bothers his heart. Can two people who've got everything to lose, take a chance on falling in love? Lawson never ceases to surprise me. She speaks to the heart with a hint of familiar and a twist of unpredictable and ends up delivering unforgettable.
