Bad Intentions by Nacole Stayton blog tour with review and giveaway

Title: Bad Intentions
Author: Nacole Stayton
Genre: Mature NA Romance
Release Date: August 6, 2015
She’s careful, but wants to be reckless. 
She’s cute, but wants to be sexy. 
She’s innocent, but wants to be bad.
When ex-Olympic gymnast, Adaley Knight wakes on her eighteenth birthday she only has one wish, to leave the only town she’s ever known and start fresh.
Finding herself enrolled at a college across the globe, the once modest Adaley is almost unrecognizable. Her new persona dances on the wild side by sinking her teeth into the first bad boy she sees. The only problem is he’s not the least bit interested.
Ryle Benson, baseball extraordinaire and brooding campus bad-boy keeps everyone at an arms length. Things have never come easy for him and the last thing he needs is getting involved with any female.
The tables are reversed as she tries to be bad, tempting fate, and he tries to fight his. The push and pull is half the fun. But what happens when one pushes a little too hard?

My Review
Wow! I have been a huge fan of Nacole's writing since she released her first novel, The Upside of Letting Go. Her writing abilities continue to impress me and each story is better than the last. Bad Intentions is a gripping tale of just how wonderful yet how cruel life can be. An emotional roller coaster that will have you laughing out loud at the silly banter between Ryle and Adalay, swooning over Ryle, wanting to punch Adalay in the face for some of the decisions she made, and ultimately leave you blubbering, snotty mess with an ending that no you will not see coming.

I connected with the characters fairly quickly and felt so deeply for them. Adalay's past is discussed early on in the book, while Ryle divulged a little bit about himself at a time, keeping me fully submerged in the story, curious as to what he would reveal next and where their journey would take them. They were well developed and likable. the plot in this story progressed nicely and was well thought out.

That ending though. It killed me. But you know what? Kudos to Nacole for writing their story...the way that Ryle and Adalay intended for it to be told. Im sure it was outside of her comfort zone and she did it anyway. With finesse. And in my opinion, thats what makes a great writer. I finished this story days ago and i still can't get it out of my head.

You can bet that I will be harassing Nacole for Tank's story. Because that is coming next. And when you read Bad Intentions, you will see for yourself just how hilarious he is. Go ahead and one click.

“Dare.” Ryle’s voice is cool, calm and collected as he mumbles his answer, like there isn’t another option.

“I dare you to—” Bradley’s interrupted by several females shouting in unison. “Take off your shirt!” 

Ryle nods his head to the adorning crowd and grabs the rim of his shirt. Everyone with lady parts around the fire starts to drool. Me included. His movements are slow and sensual, and he doesn’t even bat an eye. Apparently removing an article of clothing in front of a crowd is a typical thing for him to do on a Saturday night. My needy eyes take notice to the “V” that waves hello to me as cloth is lifted from his body.

I melt.

Literally. My body fills like goo, and I wilt until nothing is left but a puddle of want and need.
“Ow ow.”

“Sexy beast.”

I feel like I need to wash my ears out. Rolling my eyes, I snatch Tank’s drink out of his hands and down it. Bottoms up.
