Bad Habits by Staci Hart *~*~*~*~*~* Boxed Set Release & Review

Six best friends. Three love stories. One big city. Countless laughs.

The Bad Habits Boxed Set, a must read collection from Staci Hart is coming July 12th!


Don’t miss this STEAL of a deal that includes three bestselling, full-length novels and an all-new bonus epilogue, all for the special pre-order price of 99¢!

West Williams has been friends with Lily since the day she moved into their building and he saved her armoire from a swift, sudden death by staircase. Their friendship has always been easy, the boundaries clearly defined. With neither of them willing to risk their relationship, they’ve drifted happily through the years as companions, never considering more. Until they do. And that realization changes everything.

Everyone knows you should never say never. Cooper never saw Maggie coming--she was just his best friend’s little sister, the curly-haired, freckle-faced girl from Mississippi who was absolutely off limits. Maggie never expected to find her fiancĂ© banging her maid of honor an hour before she was set to walk down the aisle, but life’s funny that way. The only option to save her sanity is to get the hell out of Jackson and move to New York where her brother lives. The only downside: Cooper is there too. And she just doesn’t know if she can stay away from him — the filthy rich, dead sexy playboy who’s allergic to commitment.

Patrick Evans is no stranger to consequences. When your mother walks out, your dad drifts away. When you leave home, you’re on your own. And when you run away from the girl you love, you lose her. He finally has an opportunity to rebuild the bridge he burned with Rose, and it’s not one he’ll take for granted. But he’ll have to fight for her, even if it hurts. Even if it means he’ll walk away brokenhearted. Because deep down, he knows that she’s it for him. The trick will be to get her to admit she feels it too.

Who has babies? Who's getting married? Who has a horrible pun battle, and who tosses their cookies? Find out in this exclusive 30,000 word novella that follows the Habits crew through their very own happy endings.
*This box set includes three full length, bestselling novels, plus an exclusive epilogue novella.*

I Heart Books Review 

Bad Habits Box Set by Staci Hart
Review by Theresa Esterline 
Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I loved this series by Staci Hart! You can find my reviews for each of the three books below all three were five stars!!

With a Twist (Bad Habits #1) 
Spinning and spinning...

Is how the room will feel as you read this story of ballet, literature, and liquor!! What a great start to the series, you can see little bits and pieces here and there of the next books. Six friends in New York City, a brother and sister, two sisters, and two more make up the group. They are direct, mostly honest, and I can't wait to read more! And now a bit about the story...

Lily and West have been friends forever. Lily has been lusting after Blane for what seems like forever. But he just isn't cutting it. It has been such a disappointment. West has a friend with benefits arrangement with Christine. Of course they aren't close friends since non of the others have ever heard of her. When West overheard a conversation at a party that puts the end to that little arrangement. Now to spin onto the next party and see what twists the liquor has in store...

Favorite passages:
- At least he’s pretty.
- “When you look behind the curtain after dreaming about something for that long, there’s a lot of room for disappointment. You never find exactly what you were looking for.” 
- I’d rather have been curled up in a vat of sardines or a hamper full of dirty jock straps.
- “Okay, sometimes I have a plan. So, first — drink that because wasting alcohol is unacceptable.” She pointed to my whiskey.
- “Baby, I’ll eat Brussels sprouts for you.” She chuckled. “That’s true love, right there.”

(Bad Habits #2) 
She can run, but can she getaway....

Oooh I loved the second installment of the Bad Habits series... though I'm not sure our characters really do have them... This second story centers around Maggie and her mystery man, Cooper aka her brother's best friend. We do get insights to the other characters too, but we learn the most about Maggie and Copper. And now a bit about the story...

What could be so bad about a billionaire wanting to date you? For Maggie, Cooper is dangerous. He has a reputation as a manwhore, he never takes anything serious, and she just got out of an awful relationship. But all those things make him great for a no strings secret hookup. Only one problem, he doesn't want it to end and their secret is slowly escaping. 

Favorite passages:
- calling West overprotective was like calling a great white shark ‘cuddly.’
- The stylist will have all the clothes, so just show up in whatever. Naked, then. Got it. I’m sure the photographer will be pleased. Really, though. Try to keep your pants on. No promises.
- “Always thinking with your Mini Cooper, aren’t you?”
- Never mind speak of the devil — I couldn’t even think of him or he’d appear.
- “But it’s not so sad as someone dying.” “That doesn’t mean you’re not grieving. You’re mourning the relationship. It’s the future you constructed that died, and in the end, you still lost someone you love.”

(Bad Habits #3) 
One final chance...

Last Call picks up after over half of the habits gang is paired up. Leaving Patrick and Rose to smolder at each other. You'll find laughs as Rose tries to date, broken lamps when she stops dating, and sadness as life threatens to pull it all apart. And now a bit about the story...

Fear is a dangerous thing when it comes to love. Patrick had a loveless childhood, escaped but found the wrong crowd before he ended up at Tonic and with the Habits group. Anyhow, he loves Rose, but he doesn't want to lose her so he leaves her. Rose loves him, but he left and then paraded another woman into her bar. Now they are dancing around each other. What will happen when they are forced to live together???

Favorite passages:
- But perfect didn’t exist. It was a lesson I’d learned long, long before.
- “So,” she started, overly cheery, “how mad are you? On a scale of one to homicide?”

About the Author

Staci 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.
