OMG, this book is not just a read/listen that you pick up and forget easily….it's a journey… it's an experience. After being exposed to Tristan and Danika in "Grounded," from the Up In The Air series, I was intrigued. I knew their story had heart-break and devastation so I have waited until the release of all 3 books in their trilogy and a free weekend to explore and experience their love affair.
Let me say that this book is exquisitely done. R.K. Lilley is brilliant as she has created these characters who are vivid, they invoke raw emotion, and wonder, as well as being so likable. In fact, you want the best for them--for both Tristan and Danika as well as every person who touches their lives. I loved seeing James Cavendish (before he met Bianca, the love of his life), and Frankie…..Oh sweet Frankie!!! She is such a wonderful friend to both Tristan and Danika! She really made a difference so many times!
When you start this book, immediately, you know Lilley has give something to readers that goes beyond just another insatiable couple---She's give us a jewel with Tristan and Danika. This series is devastating and I felt that from the onset. This book will make you fall in love and believe in Tristan and Danika. Even though the title is "Bad Things" the reason you hold on, as a reader, is because of all of the good things that meld together as Tristan and Danika are so incredible as a pair. Danika is sassy, sweet, she's a survivor and she is so loving. She's also a student, a nanny, and a dancer. Tristan is kind of lost. He's a club promoter and singer for a band. Yet, even somewhat bereft, Danika awakens something beautiful in him. Her affections, combined with their electric chemistry, does something to Tristan. You can see it, you can feel it. However, Tristan is wrestling with so many demons that serve as heavy weights to his complete commitment to Danika. However, Tristan does grow a lot in this book. He grows in his ability to admit the strength of his feelings for Danika, which allows him to commit to her. There are so many fun moments between the pair, and their dialogue is awesome! In the sex department, they smolder, as they love each over in flames.
But, something's just not right…there is tragedy in this book, and from what I understand it's only the beginning. But even if there wasn't tragedy, there are other land minds that are imbedded deep inside Tristan, and we have only begun to see how his relationship with Danika will unravel and hit "rock bottom" before it plows forward in a much deserved HEA. I haven't even gone through the whole Tristan and Danika experience, but already I KNOW they deserve a beautiful HEA. I wish I could skip book 2 and just jump over to book 3, so I could watch this couple make it home together….oh well…the journey is 1/3 over!
Narrators: Sarah Naughton is freaken AMAZING!!! She did such a wonderful job in her performance. She really brought these characters to life! Chris Ruen narrated during the intermittent Tristan POV's that are inserted here and there, and his performance was delicious! This was one superb audiobook experience!

Danika is a stunning 21 and works as a nanny while studying. She has been having bad fulfilling relationships and after knowing her past I did feel sorry for her, though at times I felt like kicking her ass…. Tristan, a lead singer in rock group, he cooks, runs errands and please help me, but he is so good with his fingers and mouth that i was even jealous of Danika at times - and don’t get me started with this body muscles *drools*... Tristan comes to stay over at Danika’s place as his apartment was not ready for him to move into yet... and this Hot Happy and Sad roller-coaster ride of a story begins...
I loved his book and loved Tristan's foul sexy mind and mouth... "You feel so good. So fucking tight, I’ll let you rest after this time, but don’t be surprised when you wake up with my dick inside of you sometime in the night" Gosh who could resist? Not me !!

Didn't enjoy this title at all. There is no story here, and the narrator was the weakest, least enjoyable I have experienced to date. I ended up fast forwarding through sections of the book. Don't waste your time or money.
