RecomMondaytion: Bad Girl Love by Cynthia Dane and Hildred Billings

Contemporary Lesbian Romance review

Today’s RecomMondaytion is Bad Girl Love, a book I stumbled over while preparing a recent Friday-post. Between that title and the cover, I just had to get this audiobook!

Side- or Undercuts are my kryptonite. I don’t know what it is about this hairstyle. But I feel about 500% sexier when I have one myself (I recently got one again). And women with a bit of shaved hair always catch my eye!

Bad Girl Love**

written by Cynthia Dane and Hildred Billings, narrated by Eugenie Danglar

Story

The cover works absolutely perfectly for this butch/femme story. Audrey is the cutesy, well-mannered rich girl, the “princess”. She knows she’s a lesbian, but she can’t find a way to come out to her strict, conservative, influential parents. Dylan rejects everything Audrey and her family represent because of her own history. She picks Audrey up in a club for a hot one night stand that turns into a hot summer affair…

I found both women very likable. Audrey is self-reflected and not at all the ditz you might expect. She knows who she is and what she wants. It’s just very difficult for her to get that life for herself. Dylan is snarky but once we find out more about her background, it’s very understandable why she is the way she is.

Narration

Eugenie Danglar is very obviously a pseudonym for the narrator of this super hot Romance. The narration of Bad Girl Love is absolutely fantastic. Perfect intonations, perfect range of voices. I was absolutely captivated and it was always clear who was talking.

Recommendation

This is an extremely sexy audiobook with a great storyline of forbidden love. If you have triggers, make sure you check out the content warning at the end of the blurb though.

Bad Girl Love has a Whispersync deal and the ebook is in Kindle Unlimited.

Publisher’s Summary

Ladylike heiress Audrey Weathersby is careful to never rock her family’s boats. They don’t even know about her ex-girlfriends or her fake IDs.

But it’s that fake ID that leads her to the hottest club in the city. While her friends tear up the dancefloor, however, Audrey meets the foil to her suppressed desires and curiosity.

Dylan. The resident bad girl with an affinity for good girls like Audrey.

What begins as a torrid fling soon transforms into something that opens Audrey’s eyes to the life she’s always wanted. The longer she’s with Dylan, the more she realizes the sources of her suffocation. A toxic family. Airheaded friends. Caring for nothing but the trappings of wealth.

Dylan has dated her fair share of heiresses, but Audrey is the first one to make her believe in a chance at love.

Yet it’s not easy to give over to someone like Audrey. She represents everything Dylan has spent her whole life rejecting, for she knows all too well what it’s like to be forced into the good girl role.

And her past is constantly threatening to ruin everything she’s built for herself since her darkest days.

The fatalistic love that haunts both Dylan and Audrey will last the summer. After that? Someone will have to give up the only life they’ve ever known.

Easier said than done.

Please note that this book contains examples of transphobia and growing up in an abusive cult.

  1. “You’re in a cult, Call Your Dad!”
    I’m so sorry, but I couldn’t resist. It’s a famous quote from my favorite podcast and I can’t read the word cult without thinking that now.

    I loved my undercut in high school. I’ve been thinking about doing it again for years. Especially in the summer heat.

    Anyway, great review, as always πŸ™‚
