I’m Harlow Grace, the newest, hottest face of Hollywood sex appeal, the woman every man wants and every woman wants to be... and I’m running away. I need an escape. I need to get away from the pressure, find somewhere I won’t be hounded at every step—an impossible thing to ask when I’m on billboards everywhere, from LA to Laos, Japan to Jakarta, Sydney to Siberia. So, I buy a yacht and hide out in the most obscure, remote, and unexpected place I can think of: Ketchikan, Alaska.
Instead of a peaceful vacation, however, what I find in Ketchikan is trouble. The kind of trouble that’s six-plus feet of nerdy hotness I can't resist. I mean, who could? He's a genius with no idea how attractive he is, an enigma of contradictions: awkward yet confident, fascinating and flirtatious, yet aloof and evasive of physical touch.
He's utterly and deliciously sexy in every way—and oh, so innocent.

I can recite all of The Iliad and The Odyssey in the original Greek. I can do advanced mathematics in my head and memorize entire books with ease. By the time I graduated high school I had been scouted by several international soccer teams and recruited by think tanks, the NSA, and the CIA.
All of which is totally useless when a woman like Harlow Grace is standing in front of me, trying to talk to me, flirting with me, touching me. She’s Helen of Troy—a woman with a face that could launch a thousand ships, a woman wars are fought over.
It turns out she’s not just beautiful—she’s famous. A Hollywood sex symbol. A superstar known all over the world…
And yet somehow she’s interested in me?
Badd Boy book summary coming soon..
The perspective of the main character and how Jasinda wrote his story is unlike anything else. I won’t spoil it for the reader but this is literally a mind blowing experience. It’s a hot sexy unexplainable love story and you will love it. You WILL fall in love with the characters and the author!!! 55
Badd Boy is the 8th and final book in the Badd Brothers series. In my opinion, it was also the best. The story of Xavier and Harlow was sweet and not as Insta-love as the other brother’s stories had been. Xavier is the youngest Badd brother and he is very intelligent and almost awkward compared to the smooth talking older brothers. He does not know what to do with himself when he meets Harlow, a Hollywood starlet in hiding. She grows to care for him very much and gives him confidence that he was always lacking. I am sorry to see this series end, but I’m sure Jasinda will move on to something equally wonderful. 55
You know when you read a book & it gives you such intense feelings that gives you chills because you can relate to the main character so well? This is that book! I'm a total BADD groupie for these brothers. Every book Author Jasinda & Jack Wilder have given us in this series has captured my heart. All can be read as standalone but believe me, once you start any one of the brothers books, you will want to get to know all of them! Xavier... He is totally the best for last in this series. He is the youngest of the brothers at the ripe age of 20 but his intellectual mind and his raw and honest heart will have you claiming him as your favorite. When Xavier meets Low, his world of knowledge is thrown into a loop of highly emotionally charged feelings and romantic words that will make any woman swoon 100x hard when meeting him. Loved the build up and anticipation of finding out if Xavier can concur his fears that he has held within himself since a young age. 55
This is only the 2nd Badd boy story I have read and I am hooked!! Xavier is so sweet and innocent and sexy! Harlow and Xavier have such amazing chemistry and she is so patient with his quirks. Their love story is just the sweetest I have read in a while. Harlow just wanted to get away from her crazy, stressful lifestyle and needed a break. She finds herself in Ketchikan to get some R&R. Little did she know that she would literally fall in love with a Badd brother. "the sound of her laughter could be recorded and sold as music." I have to read all of the Badd brothers stories now, I totally love this family!! 55
The final book in the Badd Brothers series was a little more emotional than I had anticipated. And I love when a book does that to me. This was definitely a great way to end the series. Full of feels definitely has become my favorite of the Badd Brothers. I also love that through out each of these books we always get to see the rest of the family and what they are up to. If you are a fan of the Badd Brothers then this is definitely one to dive into. 55
Best book of the series! I'm sad that this is the last book, but Ms. Wilder definitely saved the best for last. I loved Xavier's character and how he is portrayed; I've got a family member on the spectrum and his behavior is pretty much on par with Xavier. Ms. Wilder has managed to bring great character depth to each member of the Badd family and their respective loves, and the stories are all unique for each couple. The chemistry between Xavier and Harlow is great and they are the perfect balance for each other. 55
THIS! This is the story I’ve been waiting for and it did NOT disappoint! Xavier has been on my radar since the first time I met him and this one my favorite Badd brothers! My goodness he’s perfect! So unique and quirky with all that smoldering Badd DNA running through his veins. Mmmmm....mmmm...mmmm...he’s all kinds of smokin’ hot swoon and Low is his perfect match! He will steal a piece of your heart! 55
My absolute favorite of the series! 55
I absolutely adore this series - Easily one of the top 5 series I've ever read. The Badd Brothers are truly everything you could ever dream up in a book boyfriend and their stories are all amazing. But without a doubt the author has outdone herself with Xavier, the youngest of the brothers, story. It’s so touching and endearing that you can’t help but fall face first for Xavier and his “uniqueness”. Xavier Badd is a genius who has trouble handling most “normal” social behavior situations. He spend his time with his books, building/selling his robots and of course cooking at Badd’s Bar and Grill and totally avoids personal relationships of any kind outside of his brothers and their women. That is until he meets Low, the most beautiful woman he’s ever laid eyes on. But past experience and his “uniqueness” having him running scared when Low starts to show an interest in him. Low, better known as Grace Harlow the Hollywood actress, has escaped the camera and paparazzi and had docked her yacht in Ketchikan, Alaska. That is where she meets Xavier Badd. He fascinates and challenges her. But most of all he likes her for herself since he honestly has no clue who she really is. But can she break through his barriers she doesn’t understand? Xavier and Low’s story is tender and heartwarming yet heartbreaking at the same time. The socialite and socially inept are worlds apart yet fiercely drawn to each other. The story will have you smiling and wiping at tears as you follow their journey. But trust me it’s an amazingly written journey that you absolutely do not want to miss. I highly recommend reading the entire Badd series, as just like Badd Boy, you will not be disappointed and the storylines just keep getting better and better as the series rocks on. 2 Resounding Thumbs Up for the series and book #8 - very well done! 55
