Nothing good comes after the third date.

See, date three is the crucial point when things get real, which is exactly why I bounce out the door, twiddling my fingers at whatever poor boy I’ve left behind. Because if I stick around, one of three things will happen: he’ll profess his undying love, he gets weird and stalky, or I’ll go crazy. Like, Sid and Nancy crazy. Like, chase-him-through-the-streets-begging-him-to-love-me crazy.

Seriously, it’s better for everyone this way.

So when I meet Bodie, I figure it’ll be the same as it ever was. It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t put a single string on me. Doesn’t matter that he’s funny and smart and jacked and can play my body like a grand piano. Because even though I’m built for love, love has only carved me up like a Christmas ham.

Resistance is something I can only hang on to for so long, and he has persistence in spades. But my heart isn’t as safe as I want to believe, and neither is his. And the second I ignore my cardinal rule is the second I stand to lose him forever.

 Staci Hart can make me cry ugly tears with A Thousand Letters and rip my heart out. Or she can put it all back together and make me cry happy tears with Bad Penny. Penny is bad a$# and I love her thoughts and how she has her way with life in general! Penny has rules when it comes dating a guy. She loves them and then leaves them. 3 dates is the quota and then she will be on her way to the next hottie. She has been burned once by an old flame and she is never letting her guard down. I love her friends and how they keep it real with her. They won’t blow smoke up her you know what. They are blunt and make a valid point when they need to bring back Penny into reality. She has it all under control until HIM….

Bodie was a sweetheart. Our school nerd with the geeky glasses is long gone! We have this amazing, brilliant, sexy, and all grown up man that breezes in Penny’s life. Bodie realizes something familiar about Penny and is instantly connected to her. They have their fun and WOW the chemistry crackles so loud you know they are going to tear it up if they let loose and let go. 

There is so much I love about this book. I love Penny and her sass. I love Bodie and that sexy brain of his. I loved the laughs but most of all I love Staci’s words and all the emotions she will make you feel. This books rocks and I would recommend everyone to own a copy. There is some drama added to the mix and you wonder if these two will ever be together.  


About the Author

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
