ONCE UPON A BAD BOY

ONCE UPON A BAD BOY                    MELONIE JOHNSON

NEVER SAY NEVER
Sadie Gold is ready to take her career to the next level with the role of a lifetime. Finally, she can shake her reputation as a pretty face with more wealth and connections than talent. But Sadie is not prepared for the wild turn her own life is about to take. The man in charge of training Sadie for her most demanding role yet is none other than her first real boyfriend—the one who took her heart and ran away.

WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE
Bo Ibarra is as good-looking and irresistible as ever. Maybe even more so, now that everything once worked against them—Sadie’s pampered and privileged upbringing and Bo’s childhood in a family struggling to make ends meet—is in the past. But the future is still unwritten…and getting there, together, means coming clean about painful secrets and slashing through nasty tabloid rumors while trying to control the attraction that crackles between them. Maybe it’s finally time for them to walk off into the sunset and into a true and lasting love?


MY REVIEW:

     This is a second chance book of a couple that meets when they were seven.  So, you have a bond of friendship that is always hard to give up.  So, but when you give up your virginity to this person like Sadie did it’s so much more.
     The night of her prom, within, it was too much.  It felt like, most likely he breaks up with her, a final break.  Yet, he really breaks so much more.  The hardest part is he doesn’t tell her, why.  Then, when she gets back home, he was gone.  He broke her heart being a coward, he broke her trust, and he abandons her too.
     She adds him along with all the emotions that were too much to handle without completely falling apart.  She places them in a box as she says, and she never looks back.  Never returns to her grandmother’s estate where he and his family run the stables.
     Bo was but a memory.  She doesn’t even look him up on social media or ask him.  There is no more Bo only her career in acting.  She just scored her first lead in a major picture in Chicago, her second hometown.  After being in a soap opera in New York for years.  This is an action film.  The first day of the read-through she meets the cast.  When her lead goes to introduce her to the stunt coordinator he requested.
     When he said it is none other than, Bo.  To say there was a shock to her heart, it would be an understatement.  The tension is thick for a few days.  Then, she and her bestie Ana, co-start, Ryan, and Bo go apple picking afterward it’s on like Donkey Kong, between the to of them.  Really?!
     Okay, the guy takes your virginity then bails but most of all he had been your friend since seven breaks your trust and you let him jump your bones without talking out the past.  EFF!  Your boxes Really?!!!  Does that not seem a little unbelievable to anyone else or just me?  Yes, he was your first got it.  But her best friend burned her where was her anger?  The box.  Right?!
     Nope, anyway, this starts losing me and star.  Because when asked point blank if she’s his girlfriend he says, nothing.  She’s is afterthought or toy for the moment or so it seems.  Check for yourself.  Not the same vibe as Smitten for the Brit which I totally enjoyed.  I am having a problem with a spoiled alpha male (who’s not rich) who has commitment issues and is a snob of those of wealth. 
     In a passive way.  Sadie, I had been trying to root for since she is concurring her phobias but can’t fully since she is allowing her ex to use her as a toy.  She is afraid to confront him on his past shit and what he put her through. 
     I give this:  3 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com.
