Didn’t I Warn You?
Bad for You #1

Not everything dangerous is bad.
From the moment Angelina laid eyes on him, she fell into a fantasy. Mysterious, foreign, gorgeous, Haithem offered her what she needed most—a chance to feel again.
But Haithem is much more than he appears to be. He lives in a world of danger where everything comes at a price.
For Angelina, that price is her future.
He’s made sure the life she’s left behind is in tatters. Made her family believe she’s dead. Still, he talks about protecting her, about keeping her safe, but she can’t distinguish his truth from his lies. She can’t separate her pleasure from his betrayal.
Haithem warned her. He told her he’d make her heart race, her body come alive and her most primal needs rush to the surface. His for the taking.
He didn’t say she’d come to love the devil who’s destroying her, even as he keeps her prisoner.
I was intrigued from the start! 4 delicious stars…
Mmmm. Haithem is dangerously delicious in every way. He’s evil and dark, he’s remarkable, he’s genius. Angelina stuck me as naive, in a sort of Ana (Fifty Shades) way. I almost instantly fell for Haithem, but with Angelina, it took me a little bit longer. I did find both of the characters were well developed.
I must say I was a tad disappointed though, about the big secret reveal. I thought it was going to be much darker than it was. I mean, I liked his idea and it actually is genius. But to go to such lengths to keep it? I feel like the reveal, as well as certain elements of keeping it, fell short in the “dark” department. However, the romance was definitely darkly erotic. Does she want him? Is she his prisoner? Or his sex slave? Or does he really care about her?
It was twisted and it turned. Just when you think you have it figured out… Bam! You don’t!
Amber Bardan’s writing kept me hanging on until the last page. I could not believe I was almost done. When I last looked at 85%, it was hard to believe there was only 15% left. However… this book leaves on a cliffhanger. It’s not a steep one, like I have seen in some books, but it is not a complete HOA. I like how there will be a second book; I cannot wait to pick it up to see what happens next in their tale.
After spending years imagining fictional adventures, Amber Bardan finally found a way to turn daydreaming into a productive habit. She now spends her time in a coffee-fueled adrenaline haze, writing romance with a thriller edge.
She lives with her husband and children in semi-rural Australia, where if she peers outside at the right moment she might just see a kangaroo bounce by.
Amber is an award winning writer, Amazon Bestselling Author, and member of Romance Writers of Australia, Melbourne Romance Writers Guild, and Writers Victoria.
