Review of Bad Boy Brit by Caitlin Daire

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. 

In this book we meet Liam Croft and Allison Granger. Allison has been enamored with anything British since she was little. Both her grandfather and father told her stories that made her want to go. So when her boss gives her the chance to go to England and interview football's most notorious bad boy Liam Croft. Allison thinks he is an amazing player but his reputation turns her off every time. Plus with Liam's preference for tall, skinny, leggy, blonds Allison thinks she will be able to get in and out easy enough. The problem she runs into is there is just something about that bad boy that makes her heart beat just a little quicker. 

Liam knows he is at the top of his game but when his brother Dean makes him take a deeper look at his life he feels a restlessness he has never felt before. So when his manager Brian tells him to pick the woman for the exclusive interview he finds himself leaning away from the typical woman he is with. The instant he meets Allison he knows there is something different about her, she doesn't take any of his crap but knows the game better than almost anyone. He finds that she seems to see the real him not the manufactured Liam Croft that is out there for all the media. However the more he gets to know her and spend time with her the more danger he is putting her in.

This is an amazing book about finding the real you and getting the love you never knew you could have in the process. This book will grab you from word one and not let go to the very end. I thought this book was an amazing idea of how man people in the public eye have to balance the ideal of personal and private life and how to keep them both where you want them. There is a part in the book where Liam takes Allison to the place he grew up. There is a pitch there and the kids know him under a different name because he wants to work with them instead of it being all about the celebrity. She asks him why he doesn't show this to the rest of the world his response is that he would just be one of any number of athletes trying to show they are good people it wouldn't make him special. Makes you wonder what we truly value out of our sports personalities and celebrities. This book will make you take a deeper look at that as well. This is a must read book. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.
