Heart of a Bad Boy by Sugar Jamison

The Bad Boys of Destiny are back and this sexy charmer will stop at nothing to win the heart of the one woman who never let him down.

Shelly Walker was born to be good. Raised by her deeply religious, prison guard father, Shelly was taught that good girls follow the rules—and definitely don’t sin. Just as her father announces he’s arranging her marriage, Shelly’s childhood friend-turned-TV host, Levi King, unexpectedly returns. With his sexy smile and bad boy charm he’s the type of guy who has sin written all over him.

Levi has been fond of Shelly since childhood, but when he returns to town, he sees that the delicate girl he knew has turned into a bombshell. Levi encourages Shelly to shake things up, but when Shelly tells him that she’s considering obeying her father and starting a family, Levi realizes that being with Shelly means more to him than just a good time. Will Shelly follow the rules or will she take a chance on the bad boy?

Read this book in a day. Couldn't put it down. My house looks like crap and my family is starving, but I enjoyed this book

I read her other series and loved it, but saw the book covers for this series and totally judged a book(s) by its cover. It had good sex scenes, humor, and just enough drama. Exactly what I want in a romance series.

Levi King is a charmer whose bad boy attitude has changed him and not for the better. He's not happy with his life. When he and his brothers return home to help the aunt who raised them, he's attracted to his BFF. Shelly has always been there supporting him. Now the reserved school teacher is impossible to ignore. Is he in love with his childhood friend? The King brothers are larger than life and I'm enjoying each of their stories. The face Levi shows the world hides his indecision and fears. I liked how much he cares for Shelly, but I wanted him to tell her. I didn't want him to hide his feelings. Shelly is a loving woman who has been sheltered by her protective father. She wants new experiences. With Levi help she's enjoying life and having fun. She deserves it. These two are perfect together. Shelly makes Levi is a better person. Love will do that. Destiny is a special place and is perfect for the King boys to find their HEA. Sugar Jamison has done a wonderful job intertwining these three stories. Her books are impossible to put down. The characters are unforgettable and the romance is enjoyable. I'm captivated by these bad boys. I received a copy in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

This is a really great friends to lovers romance. Levi and Shelly have been best friends since he was eight and she was seven. When Levi moves away at fifteen, these two unlikely people, different as night and day, manage to hold on to each other. Their friendship survives through a series of letters and phone calls, spanning thirteen years and thousands of miles. Even though they came from different backgrounds and personalities, there was something about them that just clicked into place. I loved this love story! This was a different twist on the friends to lovers trope, and I enjoyed it so much! There is very low angst (Yay!) and a lot of feel good moments. There was no pining away for each other, no one sided longing and no pushing away. This was a sweet romance about two friends that finally realize that their love is more than they’d been willing to admit. What I loved was the dynamics of this couple, they had such different personalities, I’m talking polar opposites but their differences strengthened them and pulled them closer together. You definitely feel the sparks in the air around Levi and Shelly but also the easy friendship. It has always been on a different level. They get each other - flaws and all. Its intense and more meaningful than any other relationship they have ever had with anyone else. The romance was always under the surface but this platonic side had you falling right into this story seamlessly. It was adorable to see them interacting as friends before they become more. I've read romance between friends where the love is one sided or unrequited by either the H or h, so I loved that this wasn't the case in Heart of a Bad Boy. Levi and Shelly never deny that they love each other. It's the realization that they are in love that throws them for a loop. Loved the hilarious dialogue between the MCs . Shelly cracked me up with her straight forwardness and honesty and Levi charmed the pants off me with his sincerity. I loved both Levi and Shelly. Levi was a great person, he was kind, he was affectionate and although at times he put his foot in his mouth, he was always the first to acknowledge it. I loved that he didn’t push to change Shelly, yes there was this crazy hot physical attraction between them but Levi saw Shelly as the fun-loving wacky and funny girl she let out around him. It was more than looks for him, Levi saw the real Shelly, not the muted version she displayed to everyone else. And Shelly, Shelly was easy to relate to, she was funny and sassy around Levi but turned shy and socially awkward around everyone else. The fears and insecurities that burden her makes her a vulnerable but relatable character. She's lead a content life, kind of in limbo where she isn't unhappy but never really happy either. Then Levi arrives and his brand of wild and crazy balances her out, giving her the excitement and joy in life that she’d been missing out on by living on the sidelines. Like everyone else in Destiny, it was pretty clear that these two were meant for each other. It was a fun and steamy journey, seeing them express their love for each other in so many ways to everyone around them and still not realizing that their love was more than just friendship. This was a case of obliviousness rather than denial. They both love each other but it takes some time to figure out that their in love with each other. I can’t say it enough, Levi and Shelly were perfect together! I loved the humor and the easy flow/pace of th

Thank you to St. Martin's Press via NetGalley for a copy of this amazing book! This was the first book I've read by Sugar Jamison and it won't be the last. This is book 3 in this series, but my first and I feel like it could be a stand alone. I wasn't lost at all! Shelly was raised in a strict religious family. Her dad is a prison guard. She believes in being the "good girl" that she was brought up to be. Her father tells her his has arranged for her to be married. Being the good girl that she is, she of course agrees. That is until her childhood love comes back into town. Levi and Shelly have always loved each other...just never told each other. He comes back to town thinking she's the same Shelly he left years ago, but NO....she's a knockout!! Can he make her so she's not that good girl anymore? He's so hot, how can she resist him!? LOVED everything about this book! Loved the electricity/passion between Levi and Shelly! Let's talk about Levi.........YUMMY!! I'm now a fan of Sugar Jamison!!

An amazing read! By far my favorite of the 3 Destiny books. While this one is easily read standalone, treat yourself to the other two as well. This is Levi's story. The youngest of the King Brothers and the one with the best memories of Destiny. That's mostly due to his best friend who happens to be the girl next door, Shelly. When he left Destiny the always stayed in touch and now that he's back she's the first person he wants to see. He's shocked to see she's not the young girl he left behind though. Although she hides behind too big and frankly ugly clothes, he can see the beautiful woman beneath. He's determined to get her to shake things up in her life and have a little fun. Will she find the man of her dreams when she does this or has she known him all along??? Definitely a book you want to read. I highly recommend it.

Ms. Jamison knows how to create a heartthrob. I received an ARC of Heart of the Bad Boy by Sugar Jamison in exchange for an honest review. The King brothers are worthy of some serious salivating. Tough on the outside but marshmallows on the inside. What woman wouldn't love that?Add the complicated history between these alpha men and their hometown of Destiny, you get stories of redemption and triumph. Heart of a Bad Boy is baby brother Levi's story. With the many upsets in his life Levi's sense of stability was almost non-existent. Family tragedy, physical abuse and prejudice were abundant fixtures within his childhood. There was a bright spot though. His best friend Shelly who looked beyond the renegade and saw the heart of a lost boy. Circumstances separated them but the ingenuity of a shrewd old woman and the pull of family bonds make for a love story that proves to be a combination sweet and salty good time. Have a soft spot for those bad boys and Sugar Jamison delivers.

This is a story of first times and Levi’s desire to give quite a few firsts to his best friend, Shelly. Levi, Duke and Cole were taken in by their Aunt Lolly when their father abandoned them. When they are called and told she is in ICU they head home to see her. Lolly has an agenda for each of them that is revealed in the Destiny trilogy. I have not read Duke’s story (book 1) or Cole’s (book 2) but Levi’s story is complete in and of itself without having to read them. Levi has been friends with Shelly, Lolly’s next door neighbor, since childhood. Her father works as a prison guard and is a very religious man…as is she. Her mother dying when she was young has left her feeling she must be perfect and reflect well on her parents. Levi left 13 years before this story begins and has kept in touch with Shelly through mail, e-mail, phone calls and gifts he sends on holidays and her birthday. When he gets home she is no longer 15 and is quite a bit different looking than his memories of her. With her father away they are freer to explore one another - in more ways than one. Shelly develops a bucket list for their summer month together – and what a list it is – thus the firsts that are sprinkled through the book. Levi and Shelly are interesting together. Both have known childish love and have cared for one another for many years. Their move from friends to lovers is appropriate and the story well told. More fantasy than reality in some ways with three down and out brothers becoming multi-millionaires BUT what is a good romance without some fantasy? Thank you to NetGalley for the copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. 3.5 Stars
