The Bad Boy and the Tomboy by
Always comfortable being one of the guys, Macy Anderson is laser focused on only three things: studies, soccer, and a scholarship. Romance is the last thing on Macy’s mind, until Cedric Cahill ― the one boy she’s ever crushed on ― asks her out on a date.
Handsome and charismatic, Cedric’s everything Macy has ever wanted in a boyfriend. There’s just one problem: Cedric’s cousin Sam. Brazen and unapologetic with a bad-boy reputation to match, Sam has an annoying way of constantly showing up in Macy’s life. Something crackles beneath their “just friends” relationship, and soon Macy’s thinking about him in all the ways she shouldn’t ― pushing things too far when she’s around him.
As the tension between them escalates, Macy needs to decide if it’s worth risking both a friendship and a relationship to find out where her heart’s loyalties truly lie. Especially when the truth behind Sam’s bad-boy demeanor changes everything between them forever.
I really liked the fact that there was a girl on the guy’s soccer team and she was even the captain. And she wasn’t perfect every single day, she had her flaws even during games.
I liked the friendships the characters had with each other. I know I mention this a lot, but I’m just a sucker for loyalty.
I didn’t really like the romance between Macy and Cedric, I felt like that could have been resolved much sooner than it was. And the fact that this was a PDF book made the pacing be a bit slower at times, but that is a preference.
The Bad Boy and the Tomboy was a three star rating for me. It was good, though I probably wouldn’t reread it in the future. I might be willing to try another book by this author in the future though. Thank you to Netgalley and the publishers for giving me the chance to read and review this book! My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Thank you for reading!
