    Beautiful love story

    I have been anxious to read Darren’s book for a while. I was not at all disappointed. I think I love him even more now. He’s still reeling from losing his fiancé, Belle, six years ago. He is an amazing dad to their daughter, Cadence. But he is missing companionship that only a significant other can give. While out playing pool at Just an Illusion, he meets Haddie. He is instantly attracted to her, but it takes a little finesse to get her to go out with him. I adored Haddie. She has also lost a fiancé and is ready to get back out there. She is a plus sized woman with insecurities and is hesitant to get involved with a celebrity. However, she can’t deny they’re perfect together. I loved watching these to imperfect people find perfection together. I also enjoyed catching up with the rest of the crew.

    Incredibly heartfelt story!

    The sign of a good book is where it brings out your emotions, making you feel like the characters, this story has blown others out of the water! This incredibly heartfelt story is at the top of my list this year due to the intense emotions I felt whilst reading. Darrens story is a rather Broken one, any wonder with all he has been through! Then he meets Haddie, her heart of gold, caring nature, it definitely feels like these two were fated to meet??!! Despite what they have dealt with in the past this book takes you on an incredible journey of family, feelings, love, and the most beautiful relationship to come out of it all! I shed so many tears! I laughed, I wanted to hug everyone! The author has done Darren so incredibly proud, its like she has thrown her heart and soul into the story to make me want to stay in their lives forever! Long Live the band members of BAD! It’s been an epic journey!

    ✯✯5 Healing Stars!!!✯✯

    Whoah!!!! Where in the world do I begin with this review?!?!?! I’ve been waiting for Darren’s story since the beginning of Just An Illusion . All through Mel and Sawyer’s POV I’d been biting my nails to get to Darren. I fully admit the wait was worth it. Being the drummer for the band Bastards and Dangerous Darren never had to work hard for a girl. When Mel and Belle walked into him and his brothers lives Darren’s life was never going to be the same. His connection with Belle was instant and the next minute they conceived Cadence. Darren’s life was complete with his two girls. Than four months after his daughter arrived he lost Belle and Darren didn’t know how to move on. For years Darren lived in the dark. His only brightness was Cadence and he was OK with that. One night he’s playing pool and in walks in a beautiful girl. She didn’t even see him at first and then realized she didn’t even know who he was and that was a breathe of relief. After a Darren comment he learns she’s lost her fiancé and trying to finally move on. For the first time since he lost Belle he realizes its time for him to move on. They agree to be grieving friends. Darren knows in his gut everything in his life is about to change. He just has to figure out if he’s truly ready for it. Haddie was ready for her HEA. One night changed her life forever. An accident took her fiancé from her and left her with matching scars on both the outside and inside. Haddie let herself feel sorry herself for awhile now and it’s time for her to move on. Haddie goes to the place that reminds her of her love the most. The last thing Haddie was expecting was to be in the same place with Darren from Bastards and Dangerous, not that she knew who he was at first. They hit it off quick. They understood exactly what the other one was feeling. What started as a friendship quickly turns into something more. Something either of them was expecting but were shockingly open for. Darren understood she has her issues to work through. But, was always there to let her know how beautiful she was. Haddie knew and completely understood that Cadence was Darren’s first and main priority and she completely let him take the lead. Darren was completely open and honest with Haddie. Telling her things he’d not told his brothers and families yet. Talk about the perfect story!! My heart had been breaking for Darren since the beginning and he deserved his HEA. Haddie totally was his perfect match. I found myself laughing, smh and crying the whole book. I also wished these guys and gals were real bc I want in their lives. D. Kelly knocked this out of the park. Can’t wait for her next book.
