Bad Friends

How the hell do you go from friends to…more?

Georgiana O’Malley, George, is my best friend. No, she’s everything to me. She’s the only one who knows the dark parts of me—my anger and desire for revenge—and has never judged me. So I need her friendship. Only, I keep thinking about her long legs, her beautiful red hair, and all her freckles that drive me crazy and make me want to kiss her. And I must have gone crazy because I asked her to go with me to my sister’s wedding. As my date.

Honiahaka Whitetail, Hon, is my friend. Only a friend. Well, only a best friend. The one person I trust and rely on. Being one of the few female cops in Laramie isn’t easy, but he makes it…fun. So I shouldn’t have these inappropriate, romantic feelings for him. I mean, I’m just a tomboy and I’m sure that’s all he sees me as—one of the guys. I don’t want to be a bad friend, but seeing him in his tux at his sister’s wedding is going to take all the willpower in the world to keep my hands to myself. Or should I keep my hands to myself?

Bad Friends is a stand-alone, sexy-as-hell, sweet-as-heaven book in the Wild Love series, set in rustic Wyoming where things are a little more…wild. Join Chanticleer Winner Red L. Jameson for this emotional and endearing contemporary romance.


“Loved it!! I think this is my favorite book by Ms. Jameson so far. I love friends to lovers stories and this one is exceptional. The tension is unbelievable as these two friends shift from best friends to so much more, even while their pasts hold them back, keeping them apart. The family dynamics on both sides are funny and sweet and so relate-able. George’s mom is hilarious. Hon’s sisters are so sweet. From page one, the story has you longing and sighing and yelling at each of them to take a risk and share how they feel with each other. I highly recommend it!!” -L, an Amazon reviewer

“I love the first quote that was used to describe the book (with a minor change so this review will be posted): “How the he[ck] do you go from friends to…more?” This book is a standalone however the author introduced the characters, briefly, in a previous book and I have been waiting for Hon (Honiahaka) Whitetail’s story. Hon and George (Georgiana) O’Malley are best friends and would literally die for one another. They spend almost all of their spare time together, often in each other’s family “world” and in each other’s space. Each have feelings for the other – deep, loving feelings, and let’s not forget lust ones, too! – but their deep bond of friendship is too precious for them to act on them. Right??? Well, you’ll have to read the story to see! Ms. Jameson weaved with some heavy issues into ‘Bad Friends’ as both George and Hon have events in their pasts that need to be worked through. When they finally realize that they can help each other, drawing on their deep and personal friendship, they get to express what is in their hearts. The story is smexy and hawt but it really has a strong storyline that will grab you and make you read it until you get to the end. Lots of heart in ‘Bad Friends’, hawt scenes that will make you smile, and two broken, lonely souls who finally see the light in the world! I highly recommend. -gds, an Amazon reviewer

“Generally, the key to a good story is for an author to write believe characters that readers will care about. Red L. Jamison has surely accomplished this feat in her latest addition to the Wild Love series. In Bad Friends, Hon and George struggle not to cross the line from friends to lovers — which is a challenge. The apprehension is overwhelming, as events from their past keep them from overcoming hurdles. Hon and George’s depth allows readers to care and root for their happy ending.
Supporting characters add to mix, especially George’s mother, making this story a must read. Bad Friends has everything – believable characters, humor, great scenes, and a satisfying love story. Readers, you will not be disappointed.” -Maggie, a Smashwords reviewer
