Bad Boy Daddy - Chance Carter

A copy was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.
Published Date: October 3, 2015
Genre: New Adult
Synopsis: He wanted a baby. I needed a man.


The first time I saw Jackson, I hated his guts. He was everything I could never have. Pure, panty-wetting, manhood. And I was trapped in a loveless relationship with his worst enemy. I never would have dreamed he craved my womb so badly he was willing to do anything for it.


My father's death taught me a lot of things. Most importantly, I needed a child. I had to have a son before my enemies caught up with me. So when Faith came begging for protection, I knew exactly what I wanted. I yearned for her body. Lust raged through me like a wildfire. I longed to make her pregnant with my child. I gave her an offer she couldn't refuse. A life for a life. My protection, in exchange for everything she had to offer. I'd die for her, but she would give me a son.
I took her womb. I never suspected she'd take my heart.


Let's just say that I was a bit skeptical about reading this book at first. I was more pulled in at the fact that it was a male author trying a New Adult book. 

Don't get me wrong, I love New Adult books and recently I have been into giving new authors a chance. When I spoke with Chance, it was only briefly but his book caught my attention since it was something along the lines of Rumpelstiltskin and mob life. 

My personal and honest thought was that Chance did not give his characters a chance to develop. Yes, we know Faith was considered as a one of the gang's leaders whores. She was miserable in the relationship, we understand that but we didn't even get to meet Wolf. Only heard horrid stories about him and how he was going to lock Faith away for his eyes only.

If I am going to be honest, I honestly would rate this a 2 out of 5 stars. The characters were hard to follow and honestly, twelve years is a long ass time to wait for someone and they way that got reunited was not the best way in the world because they made this muscular brute to be looking like a homeless guy. 

He takes advantage of the situation but again it was poorly developed. I wish Faith and Jackson's relationship didn't start out the way it did. Out of desperation. Faith felt merely like a whore because that's what she was to Wolf's gang. 

After 12 years, it turns out Faith and Jackson's son is undeniable brilliant and as soon as he meets Jackson, Sam is suddenly very tough.

I'm not going to lie, this book was slightly disgusting and even if I can handle New Adult romances and eroticas but this was blatantly gross but weirdly attractive as well. Only some of the parts. Like having the guy go off to protect you and his future kid. There was a part in there that made me throw my hands up in the air and say, 'HOW THE HELL DO YOU EVEN KNOW THAT?!'

What is so significant about the number 12? You'll just have to find out. In the future, please just develop your characters a bit more and if that means creating a prequel or series for the book, do it. Just do it.
