Book Review: Bad Judgment by Meghan March


He’s so arrogant.

     She’s so self-righteous.

I can’t stand him.

     I want her.

He’s a distraction I don’t need.

     She’ll say yes eventually because I’m not giving up.

Justine Porter is stuck between a rock and a stripper pole. She lost her law school scholarship, which means she has two choices to keep her life on track: strip for her tuition or tutor the most distractingly sexy guy in her class—the one she’s been turning down for two years straight. It should be an easy choice, but tutoring Ryker Grant could derail her plans to graduate with honors faster than two-for-one night at the Déjà Vu. Then again, topless has never really been her color.

She could take the easy road, just this once . . . but the deal has enough loopholes to trip anyone up.

Who knew they taught bad judgment in law school?

REVIEW: 3 Stars
"I want her addicted to me. It's only fair, because I'll never get enough of her."

This was my first read of Meghan March's and she came highly recommended to me, so I was anxious to jump in. Sometimes these recommendations result in finding your next favorite author or book, and sometimes not. Now, before I upset anyone....I will say this much; I most definitely want to read more by her. I don't think this was a bad book, it just didn't hit the definition for 'really good'. It felt very cliché in too many spots for me, so I was a little disappointed. I hate writing a review that isn't glowing.....but this book will definitely satisfy for some, but that is what I love about this book world. The discussions to follow. Who liked what, who didn't like what.

This book had some good banter that I caught myself giggling through in some spots, and it also had some sexy moments that I really enjoyed.  I couldn't put it down, though, because I had to know what was going on and how all the different storylines fit with each other. There was a lot going on, admittedly some a little over the top, but I honestly had to find out from one shock and awe moment to the next what was going to happen. Some over the top moments, some parts probably not really necessary to the overall storyline/plot, but an easy read nonetheless. I will admit that I was fairly easily able to call out most of the twists and I hate figuring things out!

I didn't like how down on herself Justine was after things started to unravel, and for no reason, either. She had her own mini pity party a few times, and that made no sense to me. It didn't match the super smart, super determined girl we originally started to read about, so that turn in character was a little off-putting for me. Overall, she was a strong character and she was quite apathetic towards Ryker, which made it all the more fun to laugh at how hard he was trying to win her over.

Ryker Grant was this ridiculously hot, very sexy classmate that apparently had no drive in school anymore, so he got a tutor in the super smart, super determined girl that he so desperately wanted to date. This guy was determined to get the girl and didn't let anything stand in his way.

Overall, I didn't feel the deep love between these two characters, and wasn't able to connect like I had hoped. I had a hard time rating this book because of the high recommendations, but I also know that I have some more of her books to read and I will most definitely read them. I usually love the enemies-to-lovers trope, but I think this one had too many variables for me.

"This isn't an itch, Justine. I've been there, done that. This is something completely fucking different."

Meghan March has been known to wear camo face paint and tromp around in woods wearing mud-covered boots, all while sporting a perfect manicure. She's also impulsive, easily entertained, and absolutely unapologetic about the fact that she loves to read and write smut. Her past lives include slinging auto parts, selling lingerie, making custom jewelry, and practicing corporate law. Writing books about dirty talking alpha males and the strong, sassy women who bring them to their knees is by far the most fabulous job she's ever had. She loves hearing from her readers at
