Overview

Lucas Badd...the Baddest of them all, he's patriarch of the clan, a man with the size and temperament of a grizzly bear whose past holds the keys to not only his own future, but also the way everyone connected to him will move forward as a family.

Who can tame a man this wild?

Olivia Goode. A widow, a mother, and a woman who is Lucas's opposite in every way imaginable. If anyone can, it would be her, but the real question is whether she can move past her own tragedy to see the man beneath the grizzly bear exterior, and whether Lucas has the courage to face his demons and become the man he's spent the last forty years pretending not to be.

It was nice to wrap up the Badd series learning more about how it all began with the father/uncle of the boys. Lucas is a little rough around the edges and makes a surprising love match with Liv, who seems to be out of his league at first. Lucas finally decides to work toward making himself a healthier and better person. He knows he is long overdue in making a better life for himself and in making things right with his sons, who he has not been a great father to. The positive changes he is working toward make him able to become romantically involved with a woman he meets at the hardware store he works at. Liv helps him realize that there are lots of things he needs to work on. She is a widow who is lonely and is immediately taken with Lucas's personality. Their romance does not come immediately, They both have things to work on before they are ready for a relationship with each other. As it happens, Liv is also the mother of 5 daughters who are introduced in this book and who will be the subject of a new series. I can't wait to see what kind of stories they will have.

"I shouldn't enjoy the way he looked at me—I didn't have the heart space for a man larger than life like Lucas Badd." Um...I'm rethinking silver fox. Now I'm moving toward #GrizzlyFox or #GrumpyFox with some silver thrown in. Lucas is the father of mountainous grown men that he calls his 'boys'. Doesn't it just make you want to start singing ♫♫ #BaddBoys?♫♫ He was raised in Ketchikan, Alaska so it's home... a place he's been running from for 40 yrs. I've been so intrigued to finally learn the story behind the estranged relationship between the fathers of the Badd boys. Lucas Badd is grouchy and surly and so damn funny. He has no filter whatsoever. If he thinks it, he says it, and it's gonna be explicit. He can't talk without cussing and that's not something Olivia Goode is used to. She's a prim and proper lady. But that doesn't mean that it doesn't amuse her when she hears him talking to himself in a colorful way, about colors. How entertaining it was when they introduced themselves to each other and she quipped, "A Goode and a Badd." While I did enjoy the banter, there was much more to the story. Both characters had grown children and years of experience, both good(e) and bad(d). They were full of pain and disappointment and broken dreams. Finding each other sparked something that they weren't even aware was missing in their lives and made them take a look in the mirror and ask some hard questions. Would they be strong enough to overcome their painful pasts and consider starting over... together? Being over 40 yrs old myself, I really really enjoyed this story about an older couple told in dual POV. I could relate to so many of their experiences and feelings. I might of even shed a tear or twenty. As she always does, the author introduced me to even more amazing characters and teased me with the possibility of more to come. I'm excited to see where it goes next. The line forms here...

Lucas Badd was everything. He was nothing I thought he was from his previous mentions in the Badd series. I loved his story. I felt for Lucas. His character Was executed with such depth of understanding why he is the way he is. Author Jasinda Wilder developed Lucas as one of those characters we could relate to when it comes to changing for the better and having that someone that motivates you to, and that someone is Yourself! Olivia Goode is the perfect push he needs to snap him out of his funk and make him see more than what he regularly sees in himself. I emotionally loved these 2 characters together. Their interactions were funny, sexy and so enduring. Another Badd Man to fall in love with.

Just when you think you have met them all and have gotten to know all of the Badd boys, in walks the Badd-est of them all...Lucas Badd, father to the triplet cousins of the original Badd brothers in the first books of this series. Yep, Roman, Remington and Ramsey's father Lucas is living in the same little Alaskan town as all of the other Badds and he is something else. Gruff, grumpy, vulgar language, and in bad shape. He's on the wagon, out of shape, still limping from a bad leg break in an automobile accident that should of killed him. Recovered from a heart attack that should have killed him and still not taking care of himself like he should. His thinking; why should he? He's still harbouring feelings for his brother, his sister-in-law (both passed) and these feelings along with others are twisting inside of him more so now that he is living in the same town as their eight sons, his nephews and he knows that there are questions and resentment coming from boths sides by all of the Badd boys. His turning point? Meeting the beautiful Olivia Goode. She's a ray of sunshine in his gloomy sorrowful life, with a way about her and the way she questions him and talks to him that begins to make him think that maybe, just maybe he should do something about his life; his lifestyle. With the help of his son and his nephew, he begins to get himself into physical shape, begins eating right and taking better care of himself. Olivia is a widow with 5 grown daughters of her own, living and working in their town as an interior designer when she meets the overweight bear of a man in the hardware store that he is working at. He's trying to pick out a paint color when they meet and the attraction is immediate. It's not the way he looks, but there is something inside of him that draws Olivia to him. She can see inside of him the man that he could be if he would just make the effort. This story is wonderfully written and in his own gruff way, Lucas Badd will slowly capture your heart with his sweetness and almost hidden, gentle way. He is a work in progress and you watch as he transforms into what Olivia knew was there. Their story is beautiful, funny, sweet and finally, hot. I loved this story and found that I did, in fact, like Lucas Badd once he told the complete story of his life, his rift with his brother and the secret of the feelings for his sister-in-law. Feelings that he has carried his entire life since meeting her. I adored this story and know that you will come to love this old coot as much as I did. Great story, great book and great series!! I highly recommend this book!

OH Just WOW. The Badd family just keeps growing and so does the joy in my heart. This family just melts me in every way. They are strong, stubborn, commanding and have no trouble speaking their minds. They are family oriented and loyal to a fault. These men know what they want and do whatever it takes to get it, especially when it comes to the women in their lives. When it comes to their women we see their inner soft side as well as some very heated moments. Kudos Ms. Wilder for writing amazing storylines with characters that I can swoon over as well as feel like I’ve known them for years. This is Lucas Badd story. If you have kept up with this Amazing series, Lucas is the triplet’s dad and the uncle to the Badd brothers. It was awesome to finally hear the story about the bothers Mom and Dad and why Lucas turned into a alcoholic and was never there for the his sons as they were growing up. It’s a marvelously written story that touched my heart and made me root for a happy ending as I flipped the pages. I Highly Recommend the entire Badd Family series; they are one of my all time favorite series, and Badd Daddy is a wonderful, heartfelt addition. 2 Thumbs Up and 5 Stars.

Badd Daddy is the 12th story in the Badd Brothers Series and it follows the story of Lucas and Olivia. Now, I'll be 100% honest with you, I didn't really know what I was getting myself into with this book. I think I've only read one book in this series and have so many that I really need to get caught up on. Even with being behind in this series, the synopsis of this one was too hard to pass up and let me tell you, this book does not disappoint. Lucas and Olivia had my attention from their very first encounter. Lucas is loud, wild, a beast of a man. Olivia is his total opposite in every way. But, you know the saying, opposites attract. And well the attraction between these two was one not to be missed. A good woman can bring a man to their knees, and Olivia might just be what the doctor ordered.... Overall, Badd Daddy was a quick and enjoyable read. Even though this is the 12th book in this series, you can read and enjoy this book as a stand-alone novel. The characters were fun and engaging. Their stories realistic and one that tugs at your heart. This story had just the right amount of sexy good times, romance, and drama. I enjoyed everything about this story from beginning to end and can not wait to explore more of the books in this series.
