“The Bad Boy Bargain” is a fun read from page one. The two main characters are Kyle Sawyer and Faith Gladwell, both high-school seniors. They do not run in the same circles because Kyle is a baseball player, while Faith is dating a football player. At least that was at the beginning of the story. Kyle has a reputation of being a really bad boy, while Faith is all around a good girl. But when Faith is cheated on by her boyfriend and he starts spreading nasty rumors about her, she decides to ask Kyle for help. From the moment they start their fake dating Faith figures out that Kyle does not live up to his reputation of a bad boy.
This is highly predictable teen romance full of angst and drama, but I enjoyed every minute of it. The characters are likable and the story has a nice steady pace. Readers get their happy ending.
If you like light, fluffy, feel good YA romance novels, “The Bad Boy Bargain” is a perfect choice for you.
Baseball player Kyle Sawyer has many labels: bad boy, delinquent, ladies' man, fearless outfielder... Only one of them is actually true. But then sweet ballet dancer Faith Gladwell asks him to help wreck her reputation, and everything goes sideways.
Faith knows a thing or two about love, and what she had with her cheating jerk of an ex wasn't it. When he starts spreading rumors about her being an Ice Queen, Faith decides it's time to let a little bad into her life.
Lucky for her, Kyle Sawyer--dark, dangerous, totally swoonworthy Kyle Sawyer--is landscaping her backyard over Spring Break. Shirtless. And if she can convince him to play along, " dating" Kyle will silence the rumors.
But Faith's plan threatens to expose Sawyer's biggest secret of all...and that's a risk he's not willing to take.
