"Witty, sexy as all hell, and addictive like no other, Staci Hart BRINGS IT with Bad Penny."
-T.M. Frazier, USA Today Bestselling Author
Bad Penny, an all-new romantic comedy standalone from Staci Hart is now LIVE!
Nothing good comes after the third date.
See, date three is the crucial point when things get real, which is exactly why I bounce out the door, twiddling my fingers at whatever poor boy I’ve left behind. Because if I stick around, one of three things will happen: he’ll profess his undying love, he gets weird and stalky, or I’ll go crazy. Like, Sid and Nancy crazy. Like, chase-him-through-the-streets-begging-him-to-love-me crazy.
Seriously, it’s better for everyone this way.
So when I meet Bodie, I figure it’ll be the same as it ever was. It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t put a single string on me. Doesn’t matter that he’s funny and smart and jacked and can play my body like a grand piano. Because even though I’m built for love, love has only carved me up like a Christmas ham.
Resistance is something I can only hang on to for so long, and he has persistence in spades. But my heart isn’t as safe as I want to believe, and neither is his. And the second I ignore my cardinal rule is the second I stand to lose him forever.

I love starting a new Staci Hart book. Bad Penny was no exception. ESP since Penny worked at Tonic. We were introduced to Penny in Staci's previous book Tonic.
Penny is just like your typical dude. You know the guy who doesn't do strings. Relationships are a huge no-no. You only see them when they're in the mood and they leave right after. They've been hurt in the past and you end up suffering for it now. Yup. That's Penny.
Penny doesn't do relationships. She only dates. Which in my opinion isn't even dating. She'll only go on 3 dates with a guy and then she'll cut the ties. So, it boils down to she'll sleep with the guy 3 times and bounce quick. But, she spends one night with Bodie and her world is turned upside down. Penny knows she should put her head down and run and not look back. But, being with Bodie is unlike anything she's ever had before.
Bodie recognized her instantly. But, he knows she doesn't recognize him. The last time he saw Penny he was the chubby, nerdy kid with glasses. Back then she knew him as "Diddle" and not Bodie. Penny was shocked to say the least when he told her. Bodie knew why Penny didn't do relationships. He was with her in high school and knows what she went through and why she doesn't do relationships. Brodie has been in love with Penny for 10yrs and now that he's had a taste of Penny. Brodie will play it cool with Penny. Anything to not spook her. He'll do anything to change her mind. Even if it kills him in the process.
This was a great story. A second chance romance. The guy finally getting the girl he's loved forever. And, for the girl to see the perfect guy whose been in front of her this whole time.
Brodie's the perfect man.He makes geeky math really sexy. Thats saying a lot from me being I failed math so many times its unreal lol. And, Penny. My heart hurt for her. She was crushed so bad she called sleeping with a guy a date. Penny didn't think she was worth being loved.
I loved seeing the crew from Tonic again. I hope we get more from them and Brodie's twin brother.

About the AuthorStaci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
