Innocence isn’t meant for the addictive…The next sultry affair in the New York Times bestselling Sea Breeze Collection by Abbi Glines is unstoppably steamy.

Addiction is part of Krit Corbin’s nature—and women have always been his favorite obsession. But that’s the life of a lead singer in a band. He can have any woman he wants—anywhere, anytime. Well, except for one.

Blythe Denton is used to being alone. The minister’s family who raised her never accepted her as their own, and the cruel minister’s wife made sure Blythe understood just how unworthy she was of love. So when she finally gets the chance to live by herself, Blythe takes it and moves into an apartment building with a loud upstairs neighbor who keeps throwing parties all night long.

It’s during one such party when Krit opens the door to find his new neighbor standing there. Blythe wants him to turn down the music, but he convinces her to stay. She’s nothing like the women who parade in and out of his apartment, but Krit can’t resist her—her brown hair, cute glasses, and sexy innocence is too much for him to ignore.

Determined to win Blythe over, Krit Corbin may have just found his biggest addiction yet.

My Thoughts:  
Abbi Glines's Bad for You is my new favourite novel in the highly addictive Sea Breeze series! There was no question that Krit and Blythe would be together in the end, but I couldn't wait to see what kind of obstacles Abbi Glines would throw in their path. Her fast-paced novels always offer a couple hours of drama-filled entertainment and irresistible romance... and Bad for You was no exception.

After leaving her horrible hometown, Blythe Denton settles in the coastal town of Sea Breeze hoping for a fresh start and to leave her abusive childhood in the past. With a new job and college classes soon beginning, Blythe's future has never looked brighter now that she's free from the toxic presence of people who criticized her very existence.

Lead singer of the local rock band Jackdown, Krit Corbin is a major player used to partying and having his pick of any woman he wants for a night of pleasure. When Krit meets his new neighbour Blythe, he knows he should stay away, but one glance at her gorgeous face has his protective instincts firing and he can't help feeling completely drawn to her innocence.

I honestly didn't expect to get all teary-eyed while reading Bad for You. Blythe is a girl with a lot of heart and compassion, but no one in her life has ever shown her kindness or love. It's no wonder she has a low self-esteem and is uncomfortable with any sort of attention, but my heart cracked for Blythe learning all that she had endured. Blythe is a beautiful girl inside and out, but she doesn't see it for herself. And Krit? He may have unintentionally messed up at times because his feelings for Blythe had knocked him off balance, but when Blythe needed friendship and support, he was always there for her.

Bad for You can be read as a standalone, but if you've read any previous novels in the series, you'll recognize some very familiar characters who have already found their happily ever afters. I always really like how Abbi Glines finds a way to connect and revisit old characters from the Sea Breeze series without detracting too much attention from the main couple!
