Book Review Toxic Bad Boy I received this book from the author and Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock I am an independent reviewer This is the third and final novel in the Beware of Bad Boy series and ends in an HEA.Caleb is in juvie for 9 months He can t help Gianna heal Here is another example of these two characters actually acting their ages Gianna lies to Caleb instead of being truthful, causing Caleb to act out with rebound girls that he has to explain later There is a lot of teen angst in this very grown up story This series cannot quite figure out what age it is There is the very real problem of Gianna and Caleb being able to both heal enough to enjoy their relationship again.I thought it was funny when Caleb just refused to let go of Gianna She d break up with him and he d continue to be with her Having Caleb s art talent blossom was a nice preview into his future There was a huge unanswered question Who sent Gianna the pictures and notes Nothing was ever answered about that It was only proven that Josh could not have done it.The side story regarding Cece and Dante was heartbreaking, but probably the most realistic portrayal of a relationship in that situation I love the peek into the future I would have liked a bit of their college life, but the ending was perfect.This book is appropriate for an adult audience due to sexual situations. Well, Toxic Bad Boy basically had every cliche I don t like in books, and was full of angst, which I m also not a fan of But somehow it worked and I couldn t put it down Probably because I loved the charachters and wanted a big, fluffy happy end for them after everything they went and put each other through I m glad everyone got what they deserved, yes, Josh, I m talking about you I m just sorry he didn t suffer enough.I can understand why Gianna lied, and Caleb s reaction too Yes, they should have been honest with each other, talk about their feelings and fears, but then again, they were only seventeen, and finally managed to overcome everything.I m glad we got to know Ian better, and that he and Caleb made friends with each other I m hoping for a spinoff for Cece and Dante, though, it s impossible not to like the talkative little energy boost.Even though I probably did not like this plot in other books, I m not going to complain It wasn t easy, and was a major roller coaster, but I still liked and enjoyed it. Just no I continued because I was 2 3 in If you re reading the reviews without having started any of the books don t start.The author had a chance in switching Gianna s character around but no Total missed opportunity there I guess there was a part of me hoping Gianna would leave Caleb for good and become a stronger person but I was left disappointed All in all One of the worst series I ve ever read. I pretty much hated this book I understand that gianna went through lots of trauma but the way she treated Caleb was uncalled for she was a total bitch and treated him like shit 80% of the book meanwhile Caleb was doing everything in his power to make her happy and win her back if I wanted to paper cut her all over and rub her in lemon juice if I were you I wouldn t have wasted my time and money all I wanted to know is if there was a happy ending and yes there was. I NEED BOOK 3 ASAP, THIS WAIT IS EXCRUTIATING PURE TORTURE Caleb and Gianna have both been put in positions to make hard decisions Caleb is currently paying for one of his choices and Gianna is figuring out where she is meant to go from here This is my favorite book in the series because it really has Caleb confronting his life choices and deciding how the future needs to be different Their relationship has been viewed as toxic as there seems to be nothing but destruction around them Caleb shows such a different side of him in this book that made me like him evenDespite the taboo of the relationship, the story comes full circle and the dark cloud looming overhead is busted apart.Aside from the drama that is Gianna and Caleb, the supporting cast plays such a great part to this story and the growth of the characters Love this one Five Fangs from Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock.
