Today is my spot on the blog tour for A Bad Boy Stole my Bra by Lauren Price.
About the Book
Imagine waking up in the dead of night to find your hot new neighbour dangling out of your window. What’s more, he’s clutching your tattiest bra in his hand.
What. The. Actual. Fudge.
When bad boy Alec Wilde moves in next door to Riley, sparks fly. After their ‘unconventional’ introduction, Riley is determined to get her own back. A nemesis is just the distraction she needs: inside, she’s barely holding it together. It’s game on.
But behind the banter, there’s a side to Alec that Riley actually likes. How can she get through to the real him when she can’t even take herself seriously?
First up, how awesome is that cover? I am all here for a bright cover featuring a bra centre-stage. It certainly attracts the attention.
Alec moves in next door to Riley, and introduces himself by stealing her bra, which seems like a rather dramatic way to meet your new neighbour. Riley sneaks into his room to try to get it back, and starts an hilarious prank war between the two. They just love to hate each other. Not going to lie, I was rooting for these two to end up together: I am a sucker for the enemies to lovers trope.
Things are a bit more complicated than that though. Both are hiding secrets, and Riley is approaching the first anniversary of her cousin’s death. The two were close and Riley is feeling guilty, but it takes most of the story for her to reveal why. It’s a secret she has closely guarded since the night her cousin died. I enjoyed seeing Alec and Riley grow and start to reveal their secrets to each other.
I also loved Riley’s friendship with Violet, and particularly the way they try to outdo each other by answering the phone in ridiculous ways.
Riley seems to have a really good relationship with her mum, and her mum offered some really sound mental health advice to Riley as the anniversary approached. Although I sometimes felt the conversations were a bit stilted, it was good to see a parent encouraging her children to take good care of their mental health and appreciating what each of them needed.
A Bad Boy Stole My Bra is a fun, relatively light read that I finished in two sittings.
