This Bad Boys sequel carries the same sexy tone as the first and picks up where Down To You leaves off. The H/h relationship is fun, scorching, convincing and, with the continued Cash twist from Book 1, original. But the twist in this book is neither original nor convincing. It feels more like an after-thought than a fine-tuned plot element. As for the plot itself, the quest to free the father from prison and safeguard the accounting books mounts. But you might find it difficult to care about the success of this mission. Maybe the stakes aren't high enough. Maybe the father doesn't play a large enough role in the story to matter. Regardless of the reason, the conflict serves as more of a distraction than a page-turner. Still...the writing is just as skillful and compelling as the first book and the romance is fun to read.
