Series: Men of Machismo #1
Genres: Romantic Suspense
The Men of Machismo series revolves around nine friends who worked together in a male revue. Each book follows the life of a different former dancer. The Bad Decision Legacy is Will and Tonya’s story.
As a divorce lawyer love and romance eludes Will. All he meets are women who are embittered by the entire male gender. No wonder his friend tries to fix him up with an intriguing woman who seduces with her honesty and eyes. It’s obvious Tonya is knee deep in trouble. Instead of running the other way, he wants to be her hero.
Tonya’s psychotic ex is stalking her and her best friend thinks it’s a good time to meet men. Enough news magazines detail what happens to men involved with women whose exes won’t go away. Her plan was to do the meet and greet, then head home. Of course, she never expected a man that sent every hormone in her body into high alert. The man looked like her next bad decision.
The Bad Decision Legacy
So, this was a book I grabbed on a whim really. Its romantic suspense and I love that! Its the best! So, I figured The Bad Decision Legacy would be a solid choice.
I thought that Tonya and Will were realistic characters and that made the story a bit more enjoyable! He is a lawyer and she is having some issues with her ex (who is bat crap crazy!). The suspense of her ex keeps the story moving and there is a good amount of romance and heat to keep you reading as well. Even with all that, there were some funny parts that I enjoyed. Overall, this is a solid read that will keep you engaged in the story and hoping for Tonya and Will to get their HEA!

From The Bad Decision Legacy:
An image of her looking beautiful and festive, wrapped in holiday greenery and Christmas lights filled the screen. It was from more than two Christmases ago, back when she wanted to do something special to celebrate the holidays. An ad for boudoir photography sounded like a perfect gift. Who knew it would come back to haunt her?
Listening to her co-worker’s grating laugh, she studied the photo. Technically, everything was covered, but she still looked nude. This wasn’t good. Her boss would fire her for sure. One of the accountants had to remove a calendar with an attractive model attired in a hockey jersey due to the fact another employee claimed it was sexual harassment.
The lack of laughter had her closing the email, deleting it, and emptying the trash can. A creeping sense of horror had her erasing her history. It would remain on the company server for about forty-eight hours before it disappeared with the rest of the trashed messages.
Richard, the IT manager, informed her he could recover anything for up to forty-eight hours after she deleted it. After that, no luck, he’d explained, since they didn’t back up all data, only the essential. Emails didn’t figure into that, thank goodness. The email was gone. Would Richard search the files?
Tonya twisted in her chair, crossing and uncrossing her legs. Be rational; think logically, she reminded herself as she tried to slow her rapid breathing. Pushing up out of her chair, she walked to the file cabinet and began to rifle through the files as if she were looking for something. Michelle breezed into the room.
Her co-worker’s purse landed on her already crowded desk, as Michelle searched for an empty place to set her oversized soda. Her rain slicker fell onto a brightly colored plastic chair. Michelle pivoted on her stiletto boot heels to greet Tonya.
“Hey, girl. Sorry, I’m late, but my youngest had…” Her voice drifted off.
Her co-worker’s excuses were endless as to why she was late. Her children figured prominently in them. It was hard to say if she was making them up, because kids do get sick, and are difficult, or might even lose the car keys as her eldest did yesterday. It was odd for her to stop in the middle of a sentence.
“Hello, trouble with the kids?” Tonya pushed out the words, hoping her voice sounded ordinary, not showing the strain.
“Yeah, something like that,” Michelle responded, not elaborating like she normally would. A furrowed brow and a tilted down chin indicated something else might be troubling her.
“Tonya, you’re as a white as a sheet. I mean, I know you’re white and all, but…”
