Bad Habit – Charleigh Rose


5 stars

“Some people say it’s better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all, but those people have never been in love with Asher Kelly.”

Bad Habit is one of the best mature New Adult novels I’ve ever read. It has a little bit of everything and checked every one of my boxes.

✔️ Sexy
✔️ Angsty
✔️ Emotional
✔️ Well Written

Check, check, check, and double check!!

It’s perfectly plotted and well-written. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen, while simultaneously hoping it’d never end. That’s the true test for me. If I’m addicted and want more and more, it’s a definite winner. That’s certainly what Charleigh Rose has given me. A WINNER!

The secondary characters all shine. I need the subsequent stories, like yesterday. I. Cannot. Wait

Here’s what I absolutely loved:

Briar is a very intriguing character. She’s mature beyond her years and unwavering in her commitment to those she loves. I loved that. The way she cared about Asher and wanted to always help those around. She loves him unconditionally. Regardless of their past, she knows he owns her heart.

“I’m so full of Asher, physically emotionally, mentally. This is pathetic. No matter how many times he burns me, I go back for more. I need him like a bad habit – one that I don’t want to kick.”

Asher is sexy AF.

He’s tall, dark, brooding, and aloof. Just the type of male lead I love. Give me a sexy dark alpha-hole any day of the week! Yep, that’s my jam. He flawed and broken, but cares deeply. Gah! He’s perfect asshole, broody, perfection! SEX-YYYY

These two together…




Enough said, right? LOL

What’s super exciting about the book…there’s more to come!

The secondary characters are ALL awesome. I can’t wait to read their stories. We get just enough of a glimpse into their lives to crave more. Perfect setup for future stories and I want them all RIGHT NOW!

So, I’ll end my ramble be saying, it was effing amazing. I laughed, I cried, and fell in love with a new book boyfriend. Highly recommended for fans of sexy New Adult reads that feature Brother’s Best Friend, and Forbidden love themes.

Bad Habit by Charleigh Rose was emotionally and sexually charged!! I felt like a powder keg in danger of combusting. SIZZLE!!!

First, if you like your stories to have a touch of the forbidden, you better pick up Bad Habit right now. The same about sexual tension – holy moly!!!! It felt like the air was charged whenever Asher and Briar were in the same room. And who doesn’t like a bad boy hero with a filthy mind, mouth, and balls to follow through.

I definitely do!!!

Asher’s snarky and broody attitude, and his take charge personality lead to a few incredibly naughty and HOT scenes which made me almost drop my kindle. All I can say is WOWZER!!!!! Asher and Briar truly were a match made in naughty heaven. ♥♥♥

Now let’s talk about the forbidden aspect – YUM!!!

I love it when a couple is so tempted by chemistry and sexual attraction that they throw caution to the wind and just go for it. It makes me literally all fluttery.  Suddenly age is just a number, and people’s judgment can’t compete with the allconsuming feelings that threaten to overtake.

Bad Habit was a wonderful combination of all of the above, plus an intriguing plot and I would call it a WINNER!!!

I think what I loved most about Bad Habit was Briars never-ending love for Asher. Briar believed in Asher, she understood him and always was in his corner. Whatever happened or life threw at her, her love for Asher never wavered. They literally belonged to each other – heart, body, and soul. It was clear as day. Their genuine attraction, chemistry and the ever present sexual tension was palpable on every page. The forbidden temptation alone was sizzling!!!

My goodness those two made me blush!!

Charleigh Rose wrote a wonderfully charged novel that combined all of my favorite tropes – taboo/forbidden, brother’s best friend, and star-crossed lovers in one book. So if you are like me, and have a soft spot for any of the aforementioned themes- you better pick up Bad Habit ASAP!!!!

You won’t be disappointed!!!




I was infatuated with Asher Kelley the moment he came tumbling through my brother’s window five years ago.
Even bruised and bloodied, he was the most beautiful boy I’d ever seen.
We couldn’t ever be together.
I was too young, and he was too untouchable.
He was too troubled, and I was too naïve.
But the heart is rebellious, and mine decided it didn’t care about any of those things. As I got older, harmless flirting turned to stolen moments in dark corners.
Until one day, he was gone without a trace.
Now, two years later, he’s back.
Callous and cruel.
He’s my brother’s best friend. My parents’ worst nightmare.
I should hate him.
But like a Bad Habit, I can’t quit him.



I was drawn to Briar Vale from the first time she looked up at me with stars in her big, blue eyes.
She was just a kid, nothing but elbows and knees, but she was the most beautiful creature I’d ever seen.
We could never be together.
I was too old and she was too off limits.
She was too good and I was too fucked up.
Eventually, the temptation became too much to resist.
I risked everything for a kiss and she betrayed me.
Two years have passed and I’m forced to see her again, but now she’s all grown up.
She’s my best friend’s baby sister. My downfall.
I hate her for what she did.
But she’s always been my drug of choice.
