Layla is a college student who came to New York from Washington. She comes from money but her parents don't spoil her. Nico is a hard working man who takes care of his family first. He doesn't have money or the greatest background. But none of these things matter to Layla. She wants to be with him anyway. Nico never feels like he is good enough for her. Layla has a roommate that is really quite snobby, but I still couldn't hate her for it because you could always tell she really was just looking out for Layla. Even if it was not what Layla wanted to hear.
The end of the book was very emotional! I really did cry (hence the reason it got 5 ⭐). But then the epilogue happened..... and it pushed to story into a whole new direction with a GIGANTIC cliffhanger that had my stomach in knots!
😒 Now I am slightly annoyed that I have to wait to find out what happens to Layla and Nico, but I really look forward to seeing where this story line goes!
Bad Idea was my first book by Nicole French and it really took my by surprise. It's a story so full of deep and honest love, loss and letting go, it broke my heart several times.
"All that electricity that's been building for the last two weeks finally sparked, and now it's full-fledged fire."
The story progression is pretty slow, but this way we get to know Nico and Layla with the same intensity and pace they get to know each other. I fell hard for both of them for all the same reasons they fell for each other.
"One breath, and it's like I've never had oxygen. One look at your blue eyes, and water never existed. F***, Layla, I don't just want you. I need you."
Even though I think Nico is quite selfish in many situations and I hate him for that, he does so many things right. The way he takes care of her, the way he makes her feel and sways her of her feet and steady her the same time. Nicole did a great job transferring the mixed feelings of the want to follow your dreams and true love. I hate that Nico made decisions that broke Layla's heart more than once, but at the same time I understood why he did it. And I totally could see and feel, why he could never let her actually go.
"...when you love someone, really love them and need them, to live without them is to live without water or air."
Layla is a strong heroine. You might not see it right away and she might not see it herself, but falling in love with Nico changed her and made her even stronger than she already was. The way she believes in Nico is simply wonderful and stunning. The most selfless decision Layla made was letting him go even though it broke her almost beyond repair. She saw something in him and would never let him sacrifice his dreams and the possibility of finding himself not even for her true love she felt for him.
"She might be the best thing that ever happened to me, but I was always a bad idea."
Bad Idea is a very emotional read full of angst and great chemistry. It will tear you apart with its cliffhanger and leaves you wanting more. This story, about Nico and Layla who are from different sides of the tracks with completely different upbringings is pretty captivating and goes straight to your heart.
Layla is a college student working to pay her bills and keep up with her school work. When she meets Nico. It's a slow kinda instant attraction on both sides.when they both start to have feelings that go beyond what they thought will they be able to hold on to it will it fiddle to nothing. This book has everything you want in a book. It will make you laugh, cry ,fall in love and get mad. And sometimes make you go omg really so not right. I can't wait for the next one.five star + read
