Review: Make Me Bad by R.S. Grey
R.S. has a particular style of books that she writes. The male lead is always an alpha male and usually the one who has everything seemingly in order. The female lead is always struggling and tends to go to the male lead for help. She always uses the same formula; you always know what you're getting into when you pick up one of her books. There's romance. There's comedy. It's steamy. It's always the same.
Even though I'm aware of her specific brand of books, R.S.'s books tend to be a hit or miss for them. I either really enjoy them or I enjoy dislike them very much. The last book of hers leaned towards the latter opinion which is why I was hesitant to pick this one up. But I couldn't stay away for long because the possibility of really enjoying this Make Me Bad was more greater than disliking it. So I gave it chance. And fortunately, I found myself enjoying it very much.
Make Me Bad is about Madison and Ben. Madison is this over protected young adult who is tired of being safe. She wants adventure and excitement. Ben is the bad boy who has been described as "entitled". After Ben practically saved her life, Madison asks him for a small favor-she wants him to make her bad.
I found Make Me Bad to be the romantic comedy that I have been looking for. It was funny and every bit addicting. It was so captivating to watch these two characters interact and develop a romantic relationship. Everything felt right about this book.
It was impossible to not love the two main characters. Madison was just this light, who unfortunately was trapped due to her overbearing family.
Typically, the male leads in Grey's worlds tend to be too "alpha male" for me but I found Ben to be the perfect amount of it. He wasn't too overbearing and he was extremely understanding.
Make Me Bad was a nice and refreshing romantic comedy that is worthy of praise.
