Meet Your New Boyfriend: Tristan Vega

A quick Synopsis from Goodreads:

Bad Things (Tristan & Danika, #1)

Bad Things (Tristan & Danika #1)

Danika hasn’t had an easy life. Being insanely attracted to bad boys has never helped make it easier.

One look at Tristan, and every brain cell she possessed went up in smoke. This man was trouble with a capital T. It was a given.
She knew better. Bad boys were bad. Especially for her. Considering her history, it was crazy to think otherwise. So why did crazy have to feel so damn fine?

For as long as she could remember, Danika had been focused on the future with single-minded purpose. Tristan came along and taught her everything there was to know about letting go, and living in the present. She fell, hard and deep. Of course, that only made her impact with the ground that much more devastating.

Bad Things is about Tristan and Danika, and their train wreck of a love story. This series can be read as a standalone, or with the Up in the Air series.

My Review from Goodreads:

I love Tristan. Danika is great, too, but that Tristan! Whew! I need the rest of this series. Period.
Tristan and Danika have the most passionate, volatile, heartbreaking, and heartfelt relationship. As a fan of the Up in the Air series I got a quick glimpse of part of their story and was intrigued. This book starts from the very beginning of T and D and can be read independently. I.Am.Hooked. Excellent read.


I have literally read 2 books since I finished Bad Things earlier this week, and I STILL can't get Tristan out of my head. He is smoldering. Tristan and Danika decide to be platonic friends, and that works for a while...until the attraction they have for each other combusts. The rest of the book chronicles the ups and downs of their volatile and passionate relationship.

Some faves from the UitA series that play significant roles here are James "Fucking" Cavendish (as he is constantly referred) and Frankie the lesbian tattoo artist. I'd actually be interested in reading more about her, but who knows if that will ever happen.

This is my Tristan:
 I have seen some other cuties, but Tristan is tatted up, so Adam Von Rothfelder wins(and so do we!)

What makes Tristan so memorable? Besides his intensity and loyalty, his passion and volatile but gentle nature, he also has a dirty, dirty mouth, as this borrowed graphic displays:

This quote is of course memorable, but Tristan has a million of these in the book. He is a big, strong man who can deliver if he promises a fantasy of a lifetime. I cannot wait to catch up with these two in the next book. Until then...
BONUS: Tristan is a great cook!
