Bad (Bad. Dirty. Power. #1) by Stevie J. Cole & L.P. Lovell

Now available on


True power is never held by good men, only the most perfect of villains. And she and I are both villains…

Two very bad people who want very bad things are never safe together.

Some love stories have no heroes.


Bad was an interesting read for me. I haven't read a lot of the authors other works so I went into it not knowing much about it. I knew it would be a dark read, but that was about it. And oh, it was fun. Definitely dark and twisted in a way I am not used to seeing.

Ronan is a Russian crime lord and really great at setting up what he wants to have all the power. People fear him for good reason. He doesn't care who he has to take out or what he has to do to get what he wants. He is a master at pretending to be a good person when he needs to be.

Camilla is a Cartel boss, but she has been kidnapped by Ronan when she gets caught up in what he wants. These two. They both are used to getting what they want and both love fire and blood. While I never really got that these two really liked each other, never mind loved each other, they are drawn to each other. They are the perfect compliment and together they could destroy anyone and anything in their way even if they would never trust the other. And it would be glorious.

Now this book does end on a big cliffhanger! I can't wait to see what will happen next. I really think anything could. I love how diabolical Ronan is. How he plans out everything and makes everything work. I can't wait to see what he does next, and what will happen with Camilla. It should be fun.

About the Authors:

LP Lovell

Lauren Lovell is an indie author from England.

She suffers from a total lack of brain to mouth filter and is the friend you have to explain before you introduce her to anyone, and apologise for afterwards.

Lauren is a self-confessed shameless pervert, who may be suffering from slight peen envy.

LP loves to hear from readers so please get in touch.

Stevie J. Cole

Stevie J. Cole lives deep in the woods of Alabama with her husband and two precious daughters. She studied Epidemiology concentrating on cancer research but has always had a passion for writing. Some of her stories will strip you bare, some will give you nightmares, but the one thing she can promise is that she will always give you stories that make you feel.

Raw. Gritty. Love.

Because sometimes characters need to be flawed.

P.S. Stevie's greatest fear is the impending zombie apocalypse. Think about it: swarming armies of decaying, oozing corpses stumbling around with clicking teeth, trying to eat your face. Nothing about that is good. NOTHING!
