Accepted Readers,

I am back with the third installment of the Almost Bad Boys series by A.O. Peart! I absolutely can't stop raving about this devilishly delicious book series! The Almost Bad Boy series opened a door into a whole new world for me. I never thought NA Contemporary Romance would be appealing to me but A.O. Peart has changed my mind on this entire genre. If you're a fan of books of this genre or if your looking for something new, you MUST give this series a chance!

A martini glass of sizzling romance, a jigger of suspense and crime, perfectly shaken with a twist of wacky humor.

Where would you draw the line between love and trust?

When Colin’s feisty great grandma Helga mysteriously disappears, Natalie and the gun-toting Svetlana rush to the rescue. With the help of Russian mafia goons and Natalie’s girlfriends, they get more than they bargained for. Natalie invites trouble into her life all over again. She could find herself questioned by the police, or worse, her relationship with Colin could become rickety once more.

And so the race begins: with grandma Helga on the loose, Colin turns to the police for help, and Natalie is a stiletto heel tip outside of the law. But being in the wrong has never felt so vindicated.

My Review
Writing Style:
What amazes me about A.O. Peart's writing style in this series is her ability to squeeze such a wildly crazy fun story in such a small number of pages and have everything just feels so right. These books never disappoint, you won't believe how much can happen in under 200 pages.

My Opinion:
Let me put it to you straight, if you pick up this book make sure you have nothing planned to do because once you pick it up you won't put it down! It's becoming pretty customary for me to read any books in the Almost Bad Boys series in one reading session, they are just that good! I frequently find myself cursing myself for not being able to read faster, my excitement to know what will happen keeps me on the edge. The craziness that is Natalie's life fascinates me. 

This one opened and finished with a bang! This book didn't have as many scorching sex scenes, but don't worry the two sessions it does have make up for it. The scenes were a bit longer with some pretty kinky material, so be prepared to run to the nearest shower to cool yourself down.

Almost Too Far includes another disastrous adventure presented by the ever so lovely Female Solidarity Club as I now like to call Natalie and her friends (I was so excited to see all of them make an appearance this time!)... These ladies sure do know how to get themselves into some mischief and I love it! This time around Colin's great grandmother and her group of feisty lady friends join in on the fun. What happens when you get a group of adventurous ladies together? Pure wild delight, lots of drinking, and loads of hilarious situations... can somebody say hell yes? If only I could be part of their inner circle, I know I would fit in quite nicely. I also have a knack for finding trouble and mischief, it's in my nature.

What I enjoyed most about Almost Too Far is the way Natalie compares her and Colin's relationship to the situations happening around her. It's like a light bulb goes off in her head and she figures out the reason behind the friction their relationship experiences.  I feel that this really connects the story together with Almost Matched the first book. As the readers we knew why they had issues and it was great to see that they finally realize the problem and now can begin to strengthen their relationship. They truly do make a perfect couple and when you finish reading this book you will see why. A beautiful ending the one I was rooting for! Yay!
