Bad Penny by Staci Hart
Nothing good comes after the third date.
See, date three is the crucial point when things get real, which is exactly why I bounce out the door, twiddling my fingers at whatever poor boy I’ve left behind. Because if I stick around, one of three things will happen: he’ll profess his undying love, he gets weird and stalky, or I’ll go crazy. Like, Sid and Nancy crazy. Like, chase-him-through-the-streets-begging-him-to-love-me crazy.
Seriously, it’s better for everyone this way.
So when I meet Bodie, I figure it’ll be the same as it ever was. It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t put a single string on me. Doesn’t matter that he’s funny and smart and jacked and can play my body like a grand piano. Because even though I’m built for love, love has only carved me up like a Christmas ham.
Resistance is something I can only hang on to for so long, and he has persistence in spades. But my heart isn’t as safe as I want to believe, and neither is his. And the second I ignore my cardinal rule is the second I stand to lose him forever.

Fair warning.. Do NOT be drinking something when you start this book. I spewed my coffee after that first sentence and from then on in, I was in a roller coaster ride of epicness. I laughed, I swooned, I wanted to smack both Bodie and Penny at points for being so freaking stubborn too!
I really enjoyed Penny’s character. She beats to her own drum and doesn’t care what others think. Bodie is that boy who snuck up on her blind side, especially when he is a blast from the past!
Between the banter and the naughty moments, this book had everything you need for a great tale. The character build was epic as you got to see multiple sides of both characters as well as the supporting roles. It is one of those books that will stick with you. The one liners that Hart gives us is beyond epic. I laughed so much through this whole book!
Overall, this book was perfect. I enjoyed it immensely and would highly recommend it to anyone who is a Staci Hart fan. Really to anyone who needs a read that will make you smile!
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
