Review: Bad for You by Abbi Glines

Add to Goodreads:
Innocence was never meant for the addictive…
Addiction was something Krit Corbin accepted as part of his nature a long time ago. He decided to embrace it and flip his finger at the rules. Women had always been the number one thing on his list of addictions. He couldn’t get enough. Being the lead singer in a rock band had only made access to his favorite addiction that much easier.

Being alone was the only thing Blythe Denton understood. The small town minister’s family that raised her hadn’t accepted her as their own. The minister’s wife had always made sure Blythe understood just how unworthy she was of love. When Blythe is sent away to college and given a chance to finally be free of living as an unwanted burden, she looks forward to having peace in her life. Being alone isn’t something that bothers her. She escapes reality in the stories she writes.

However, the ridiculously sexy tattooed guy who keeps throwing parties in the apartment above hers is driving her crazy. For starters, he doesn’t treat her like she would expect a guy with a different woman always hanging on his arm to treat someone as uninteresting as her. She looks nothing like the gorgeous women she sees parading in and out of his apartment, but for some strange reason he keeps showing up at her door.

During a party at his apartment, Krit’s new neighbor comes to the door with her long brown hair pulled up in a messy knot and a pair of glasses perched on her cute little nose. She wants him to turn down the music, but he convinces her to stay.

Krit Corbin may have just found his biggest addiction yet. And Blythe Denton realizes too late that she’s finally been claimed.
I've said this before but anything Abbi Glines writes is an instant 1-click for me, I love her books and always read them in one day.
This is Krit and Blythe's story.  Krit is the lead singer of Jackdown, the local band that plays down a live bay.  They have a huge following and women will do anything to hook up with one of the guys in the bad but Krit is their favourite.  Krit is still getting over Jess, who fell in love with Jason Stone in Misbehaving and left town to begin her new happy life without him in it.  He does this by drinking and sleeping with as many women  he can bring home with him.
Blythe grew up in a small town and was raised by the local pastor and his wife after her mother died.  It was not a happy upbringing, her stepmother completely stripped her of any confidence and self worth and she made to feel like she was a nobody.  On the death of her stepmother her stepfather sends her to Sea Breeze so she can attend community college and work part time in the office for the local pastor.
The day Blythe moves into her apartment she meets her new neighbour Krit.  He is all muscled and tattooed and she can't take her eyes off him.  He in turn is taken by her innocence and naivety.  He befriends her out of a wish to get to know and protect her but being in her company soon becomes a need.
"I was addicted to Blythe Denton.  More addicted than I'd been to anything in my life" - Krit
You could not find two people more polar opposite than these two but it is so beautiful as their friendship evolves into more for both of them and Krit reveals the 'real' him.  Blythe has no life experience in anything and she soon becomes consumed by him too.
The road to love and happiness never heads in a straight direction in a Sea Breeze story and there are a lot of twists and turns for this couple, some may just be too much to overcome.
Once again another fantastic classic Abbi Glines novel and I can't wait to read Hold on Tight coming soon!
