Nothing good comes after the third date.
See, date three is the crucial point when things get real, which is exactly why I bounce out the door, twiddling my fingers at whatever poor boy I’ve left behind. Because if I stick around, one of three things will happen: he’ll profess his undying love, he gets weird and stalky, or I’ll go crazy. Like, Sid and Nancy crazy. Like, chase-him-through-the-streets-begging-him-to-love-me crazy.
Seriously, it’s better for everyone this way.
So when I meet Bodie, I figure it’ll be the same as it ever was. It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t put a single string on me. Doesn’t matter that he’s funny and smart and jacked and can play my body like a grand piano. Because even though I’m built for love, love has only carved me up like a Christmas ham.
Resistance is something I can only hang on to for so long, and he has persistence in spades. But my heart isn’t as safe as I want to believe, and neither is his. And the second I ignore my cardinal rule is the second I stand to lose him forever.

Staci has done it again. 


Just when I think she's written her finest work ever, she one ups herself. 

After being emotionally batter and bruised after reading A Thousand Letters (SERIOUSLY GO READ IT!!!), this was exactly the balm needed to soothe the wounds. 

Bad Penny. Man, where do I start? Let's just go with how utterly humorous this book is. Jokes, funny situations, word play. This book has all the hilarity. 

Penny has got to be one of my most favorite heroines ever. She is independent with co-dependent tendencies. She is strong and a warrior and everything you love about female leads. 

Bodie knows what he wants and he knows how to get it. By being patient with Penny, he's getting results. Especially after he gets Penny to break her ridiculous 3 date rule (which he doesn't know anything about). He just knows that he wants her. 

Amid deadlines, weddings, work, and big plans, these two fall together. Of course, they have their ups and downs, but the way that Staci has written it, it's moving. She pulls at your heart while throwing humor in with despair. 

It is zero secret that I am a HUGE Hart fan and this hasn't changed at all. In fact, I applaud Staci for being able to continuously write some of the best books I've ever read. 

Giving this book anything less than five stars feels like a crime.


About the Author

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
