Dylan by Melissa Foster Blog Tour

Everything's naughtier after dark...

Sinfully sexy bar owner Dylan Bad has a thing for needy women. He's a savior, a knight in shining armor, and his mighty talented sword has no trouble bringing damsels in distress to their knees. Enter Tiffany Winters, a gorgeous cutthroat sports agent who looks like sex on legs, f**ks like she's passion personified, and wouldn't let a man help her if she were dangling from a ledge and he was her only hope. One night and too much tequila might change their lives forever. The question is, will either one survive?

With her phone pressed to her ear, Tiffany Winters ducked out of the rain and into the Kiss, an eclectic Manhattan bar, to return calls and take care of a mountain of text messages that had piled up during her dinner meeting. She listened to her client’s wife explain why she didn’t want her husband traveling too often to endorse a hotel chain Tiffany was planning on pitching to him next week. Her client had already nixed any mention of his family in the advertisements, and reducing his travel would make it an even harder sell.

“I hear your concern, Allison,” she said as she sat on a barstool. “If you and Matt decide this isn’t the right thing for your family, we’ll turn our efforts in another direction.” As a sports agent, dealing with significant others was part of the job, a part Tiffany enjoyed and other agents rued. Sure, some wives assumed their husband’s success granted them the power to be overly demanding. Ass kissing was part of the game. Sometimes she wished she could give the meeker wives lessons in how to be tough. Teach them to have balls as big as their husbands’ and come right out and say what they meant instead of beating around the bush with bullshit hypotheticals. She reminded herself often that not every woman grew up in a testosterone-laden house with two competitive older brothers and a father who won the Heisman in college and went on to play pro sports—a house where mincing words didn’t cut the mustard.

“You missed the wedding.”

The deep male voice drew Tiffany’s attention from her phone call to the fine specimen of a man standing behind the bar. He looked like he’d just stepped off a Hot Guys in Suits Pinterest page. His tie hung loosely around the collar of his white dress shirt, which was open three buttons deep, revealing a smattering of dark chest hair, a rarity nowadays, when so many men manscaped every inch of their bodies. Tiffany preferred a man to look like a man, which included hair in all the right places. His sleeves were rolled up to his elbows, exposing heavily corded forearms, and his jacket hung casually from two fingers over his left shoulder. Her fingers itched to send the last few buttons—and that jacket—flying to the floor. The guy’s chiseled jaw and dark eyes were movie-star classic, and his dark hair was thick enough to hang on to. She’d had a long, hard day, and he looked like he could provide a long, hard, pleasure-filled night.


Holding his gaze, she spoke into the phone as he laid his jacket across the bar, giving her the impression he wasn’t the bartender, but rather a guest who’d happened to wander back there. “Allison, I’ll see what else I can come up with and get back to you. Right. Okay, hon. Thank you.” After ending the call, she responded to the stud behind the bar. “Wedding? Who gets married at a bar?”

“My brother, for one.” He nodded across the room to a group of men and women who were holding their glasses up in a toast.

She zeroed in on one she recognized as her tall, dark colleague. “Mick Bad is married?” The high-powered attorney was a workaholic like her, and he’d been unattached two months earlier, when they’d worked together on a deal for one of her clients. She’d never understand couples who claimed to fall in love practically overnight. Love was a crutch for weak people who needed someone else to lean on. Except Mick Bad had never needed anyone to lean on. She wondered if his new bride was pregnant.

“The one and only.” Hot guy’s eyes took a long, luxurious stroll down her body, lingered on her breasts, then roamed north, hovering around her mouth, before finally meeting her gaze. He flashed a wolfish grin full of sinful promises.

“Dylan Bad at your service.”

Pushing thoughts of her newly married colleague’s expedient nuptials aside, she focused on his very available brother. A definite player, which was fine with her. She had no time—or interest—in anything but a quick hookup, and the six-two or -three stud had already shot to the top of tonight’s fantasy list.

“What’s your pleasure?” he asked with more than a hint of innuendo.

You. Naked, with your head buried between my legs, to start.

“Surprise me.” She watched him turn to prepare her drink and checked out the way his dark slacks hugged his perfect ass. It had been a long time since she’d found a man this attractive. But Mick Bad’s brother? That spelled trouble.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

First, I have to say that this story did not pull me in and keep my attention as well as the first book with Mick did. It is a good story and I loved Dylan, but there seemed to be something missing for me. I love Melissa Foster and her stories usually have me hanging on every page, but this one didn't until closer to the end. I gave it four stars because to me, the ending was the best part and the sexual tension between Dylan and Tiffany was undeniable and hot, but for the most part, it was a 3.5 star story.

Dylan Bad owns Night Caps, a local club, and is one of the four Bad brothers. When he sees a woman he wants, he goes after her. He has a few demons in his past that will pull at your heart. When he sees Tiffany, he knows he wants her, but his brother Mick warns him that she is a ball buster and he needs to steer clear of her. But Dylan is up for the challenge.

Tiffany Winters is a sports agent and she is good at her job because she doesn't take time for anything else. She gets what her clients want and is available to them 24/7. When she slips into Night Caps to answer a phone call, she doesn't realize that she is instantly put on Dylan's radar.

She tries to talk him in to a one-night stand, but Dylan wants more. Because he knows she needs a little free time.

Can Dylan make Tiffany see that she can do her job and have a personal life at the same time? Will Tiffany push him away when he sees the determination she has for her job? Can they both help each other heal from the pain of the past?

As I said, I love Melissa Foster and I can't wait for Carson's story, brother #3.

This is the second in the series and is the perfect complement to Mick and Amanda's story. You could read this as a standalone – but as any Melissa Foster reader would know, all her books have references to other books and series, so if you want a full experience, just keep reading them all to get the fullest picture!

I really enjoyed this book, because it is firmly rooted in real life – okay, the real life of two not very ordinary people, but still... We get to see them just being; in Tiffany's case, something that she has been avoiding since childhood. Watching her unwind, and accept Dylan into her life is a very pleasing experience. Between them, they really get to realise more about themselves than anything else, and translate it into their honesty with each other. They are also incredibly attracted to each other physically, which can lead to some very sexy interludes. Do not, however, think this is all heat and smiles, oh no, I had to resort to a tissue a couple of times, but it was absolutely worth it. Some super funny scenes too – which gave it balance and had me reading long into the night.

This is one of those books which just provides a lovely, real story, and pulls out all the emotions of laughter, tears, and plenty of sighs, both dreamy and of frustration! Thank you Ms. Foster, for once again pulling it out of the bag.

This was a good read, not nearly as great as the previous book in the series, but it kept me sucked in and had an interesting storyline.

Dylan Bad isn’t your typical “Bad” boy. He’s looking for his one and only and when he meets Tiffany, he thinks he’s found the one. Tiffany is looking for nothing more than a one-night stand and thinks she’s found just the man when she runs into Dylan. Though the two have similar pasts they’re complete opposites, Dylan being super open and Tiffany closed off. Dylan sets out to tear down her walls and Tiffany tries her best to allow it; there is one scene where Tiffany truly steps outside her comfort-zone with a surprise for Dylan, and I had to stop reading to wipe my eyes I laughed so hard.

I really enjoyed that this book had a fast pace, a good amount of steam, and had me laughing. The storyline, though good, was a bit cliché and the storyline progresses, but sometimes I found myself skimming more than absorbing. I look forward to seeing where Melissa Foster takes the next book.
