Bad for You by Abbi Glines

Bad for You (Sea Breeze)


Innocence isn’t meant for the addictive…The next sultry affair in the New York Times bestselling Sea Breeze Collection by Abbi Glines is unstoppably steamy.

Addiction is part of Krit Corbin’s nature—and women have always been his favorite obsession. But that’s the life of a lead singer in a band. He can have any woman he wants—anywhere, anytime. Well, except for one.

Blythe Denton is used to being alone. The minister’s family who raised her never accepted her as their own, and the cruel minister’s wife made sure Blythe understood just how unworthy she was of love. So when she finally gets the chance to live by herself, Blythe takes it and moves into an apartment building with a loud upstairs neighbor who keeps throwing parties all night long.

It’s during one such party when Krit opens the door to find his new neighbor standing there. Blythe wants him to turn down the music, but he convinces her to stay. She’s nothing like the women who parade in and out of his apartment, but Krit can’t resist her—her brown hair, cute glasses, and sexy innocence is too much for him to ignore.

Determined to win Blythe over, Krit Corbin may have just found his biggest addiction yet.


There is something about a tattooed boy that gets me. I didn't have many thoughts about Kit after reading Misbehaving, but since I enjoy Abbi Glines I picked up this book.

Krit is the lead singer of a band and a hit with the ladies. He sleeps with a lot of them whenever he wants. Then he meets Blythe. Sweet, innocent Blythe. She has had a bad childhood and thinks there is something wrong with her. She doesn't think she is pretty or nice or worthy of someone like Krit. Krit doesn't think he is worthy of someone like Blythe. Krit shows Blythe his good side, something he doesn't let many people see. She sticks up for him with everyone because she knows he is a good person. It was really sweet and just made Krit fall for her more. He had a bad upbringing as well and never really had anyone take a stand for him like that.

When things started out they were both trying to be just friends. Blythe went on a few dates with Linc who creeped me out. Something was off with him, more so than what was revealed. Yes he had secretes, which were pretty obvious, but there was something else. I kept waiting for him to turn into this horrible scary guy, but he never did. I don't know what it was but he was not right.

The big surprise at the end I found really obvious as well. Krit and Blythe had a few things to deal with and work out. Blythe was a little lame when she found out what was happening in Krit's life, but of course everything gets worked out in the end. While it seemed pretty obvious what was happening, or going to happen, I still enjoyed the story.

What I didn't like? Krit seems to have some issues. He is obsessed with Blythe, and some of his obsession is not in a healthy way. They don't really address that very much. He might start taking his pills again, but it is not really...he just is a little too intense. I don't actually see it working out with them long term until he figures out his issues and can have a more normal, healthy relationship. That is the one thing that bugged me. It just seemed like he would smother Blythe and like he can't do anything without her. I don't know. It bugged me it wasn't really addressed and it just ended happily ever after. Still a good read.
