Nikki Latimore can’t stand Ashton Wentworth Allen III.  To her, he’s an arrogant, upper-crust preppy and they have nothing in common.  For some reason, he seems to think her love life is his business by telling her that the men she dates are unworthy and that her taste is horrible.  True, her track record with men sucks but what makes him think she would be interested in a rich pretty boy?   Everyone knows that guys like Ashton are safe, pampered and stuck-up.  While her mind is saying, “Hell no!” her body gets hot and bothered whenever he is in her vicinity. 

What she doesn’t know is that Ashton is tired of waiting for her to get her act together and is moving in for the kill.  Look out, Nikki!  You’re about to be turned out!

Nadia Aidan’s books are a thrill.  Her characters are multicultural, strong-willed and wildly attracted to one another.  Bad Boy in Brooks Brothers is no exception.  From the time you first meet Nikki and Ashton there is nothing but electricity in the air.  Nikki’s issues of self-worth are reflected in the fact that she chooses men who don’t value her.  It is very hard for her to see herself with a good man and Ashton is certainly that.  His privilege doesn’t lessen that factor.   Nikki’s issues are, sadly, not uncommon.  The fact that Ashton can see the woman inside and have such respect and regard for Nikki shows the depth of his character.  He also whips out a bag of tricks on her that leaves her begging for more, proving that you can never judge a book by its cover.  Nikki is thrilled to find out how wrong she was about Ashton. Oh, yes!

I’m glad that I often follow my own advice, but in this case, the book cover is eye catching and a good match for the contents.  So if you’re in the mood for an interracial contemporary love story with some BDSM sizzle, then Bad Boy in Brooks Brothers is the read for you.
