My Book Review and Release Blitz of MY WEEK with the BAD BOY by Brooke Cumberland & Lyra Parish

Title: My Week with the Bad Boy

Series: My Week, #1

Authors: Brooke Cumberland & Lyra Parish

Cover Photographer: FuriousFotog

Cover Model: Joey Berry

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: November 2, 2017

Never trust a man who answers the front door wearing nothing more than a pair of low-cut jeans and a panty-melting smirk.

That should’ve been my first sign.

I write about guys just like him for a living—sexy and charming, yet reluctant to get into a serious relationship. His body screams sex appeal, but his condescending personality makes him a classic fuckboy. 

And I want nothing to do with that.

Writing romance novels comes with its perks—traveling, meeting new people, creating characters from the voices in my head—but Ethan Rochester enters my life and rearranges all my preconceived notions about writing what inspires you. 

One week is all it took. One week to realize that not everything is as it seems.

One week with the bad boy, and I wanted more.

I am a major fan of this fabulous writing duet Brooke Cumberland & Lyra Parish and its so exciting to see them branching out with their debut novel, My Week with the Bad Boy, being published outside of their pen name Kennedy Fox! I am sure that you have heard of their highly popular CHECKMATE DUET SERIES under Kennedy Fox Books.

When I read the title of My Week with the Bad Boy, I was so intrigued how this mashup was going to go down! Would it be a hook up on the airplane, a friend of a friend in town starting with a bar hookup and then staying in bed all week… So the actual circumstances of how they meet is so good and NORMAL, ha! And their week is seriously H-O-T!



I have read other reviews that classify this as an insta-love or slow burn enemies to lovers romance. I disagree – haha – as I HATE insta-love more than anything and classify it more as a vacation hook up with hoping for more… This book starts out with some great one-liners and witty banter that leaves you giggling though the book. There are also some sad, tragic moments that leave the main characters protecting their hearts. All in all its a good, quick read with steamy, piercing moments and also some heart pulling moments!

Lyra Parish loves to write, glamp, and sing obnoxiously loud at the top of her lungs in the shower. Sweet love stories (along with the dirty ones) make her gush. She is a firm believer that a person can never have too many cups of coffee, cats, or happily ever afters. When she isn’t busy writing with Brooke as Kennedy Fox, she can be found sipping various beverages from her non-alcoholic drink buffet, pimp slapping excel spreadsheets, or riding her bike. Lyra lives in Texas with her glassblowing, guitar-playing hubby and black cat named Nibbler.
