Bad Boys Down Under is one of the best Bad Boys books I've read in awhile. I'm a big fan of Brava's Bad Boys themed books, but as of late none of them have really caught my attention. Well, that all changed with Nancy Warren's latest book. Each story in this book had me hooked from the first page to the last and I thought each story was truly original and entertaining.
My personal favorite of the three stories, "Sizzling in Sydney" was the first of the book. It features marketing wizard Jennifer Talbot and surfboard millionaire Cameron Crane. Cam knows he needs Jen's help with his campaign to provide surf boards to the U.S., he just never knew how much he would come to want sexy Jen for herself. Unfortunately, there are a few problems standing in their way, not the least of which is Jen's engagement to another man. Will Cam and Jen find their happily-ever-after?
Like I said, this was my favorite of the book. Jen and Cam were great couples and Cam was an amazing hero. He was sweet, funny, and not afraid to prove to Jen that he was the man for her. There were lots of laughs in this story, along with Nancy Warren's trademark sensuality. A great story that will satisfy any reader.
"Surfer Boy" is the second story in this book, and it is another great read. Steel worker Steve Jackson has taken a part time modeling career with Crane surfboards, to promote the boards in California. He arrives in California and has quite the first encounter with ad executive Lise Atwater. From then on, the heat just keeps going up as these two great characters fall desperately in love. But how will they be able to stay together, when they live on opposite ends of the world.
This was a great story too.

What can I say? I LOVED this book! The characters were seemed so real the I felt like I got to know them. They each had insecurities and flaws that made them more human to me. The stories themselves (3 short novellas which are interconnected but distinctly different)were entertaining and interesting.
Two of the stories (the first and third) take place "Down Under" in Australia and were highly entertaining and romantic. I wasn't actually sure that I would like Cameron Crane upon first "meeting" him but grew to like him right along with Jennifer. The second and sweetest story was set in America and had a hunky bad boy named Steve as the lead man - yummy! The third story had a double connection to the first and was funny at times and poignant at others.
This is a must read for romance fans! If you've not given Ms. Warren's books a chance before, here's the perfect opportunity! I'd warn you though, you might become addicted - especially to those wonderful alpha males / bad boys! Definitely better than chocolate! (And sexy too!!)

Cam knows surfing, but he's not sure what to make of Jen...a woman's who's come to Australia to help him figure out how to take his surfing empire to the US. She's there for business, but Cam soon has other plans!

Steve is sent to the US to represent Cam's surfing company in the new ad campaign. Lise is supposed to turn the rugged iron worker into a model. But rather than turning him into anything, he's turning her on!

Cam's little sister, Bron, is known as a party girl. But when she meets Crane's new accountant nothing seems to balance. She's not sure what to make of their instant attraction. But lucky for her, Mark knows how things add up!

Three couples, three matches that seem less than perfect, turn out to be perfectly wonderful stories of surf, sun...and a healthy dose of love! Nancy Warren shines like never before. Bad Boys have never been so good!

Of the three stories, the least likable is unfortunately the first. The `hero' in that story is a self-made millionaire who invites the engaged `heroine' to his company to create a marketing plan. Without telling her, he ensconces her in his home instead of a hotel and meets her there, reclining naked in a hot tub. He then proceeds to flash her to get out of the hot tub. Lovely. Knowing she is engaged, he nonetheless then decides to seduce her to show her who is boss. Also lovely. Then they somehow `fall in love' (that is, fall in lust) and she succumbs - only after removing her engagement ring in the bathroom. She justifies her actions by saying she couldn't possibly feel so attracted to Mr. Flasher if she was truly in love with her fiance. So great -- good to go and let's hit the sheets now that we've justified it. She then proceeds to screw the guy like a bunny the entire remaining time of her trip, with a small lull in the festivities to break up with her fiancé over the phone. When the fiancé asks Miss Sensitive why she couldn't wait until she came home to do this in person, her response was that she wanted to have a nice final week with her screw mate and couldn't if she was feeling guilty over being still technically engaged. What a shame! Boo hoo to her. I certainly prefer characters to feel `real' as opposed to perfect gods and goddesses, but these two characters are the type I wouldn't want to have dinner with, let alone leave my spouse alone with.

The second story involving the model the first heroine found in Australia and sent back to the States for `grooming' is much better. The third, involving the jilted fiancé and the first hero's sister is totally implausible.
