    1. 4.5 stars Review posted September 8, 2015.The first page of Badger started off deceptively humorous, with the uterine wallflower, Adrian Birch, narrating My name is Adrian Birch, and I m nobody.Don t mind me Carry on doing your somebody things I ll just be over here, taking up as little space as possible No, really I like it this way This is how it s always been.The best way to explain my childhood would be to have you imagine a kid s painting Picture a rainbow red, orange, yellow, green, blue p [...]


    2. 5 Stars we all had split personalities We ve got the one we actually present to the world the majority of the time Then we have the other one, the one who unleashes terrible barrages of disgusting vitriol at the people who piss us off, only in our heads, and fucks whomever it feels like, exactly when and how it wants In our heads I bet we all had a Badger in us, an impulse to hurt and punish We just had some component that kept it caged in exchange for living in civilized society It s no big sec [...]

    7. I felt as if I was standing next to a celebrity, an angel, my grubby cut rate Christ Well then I honestly wasn t expecting this book to take the direction it took when I started reading it I mean, what should I have expected when all I new going in was that the hero was a vigilante and the heroine a recovering addict I ad visions of an obsessive relationship mainly from the herorry I can t help myself ensuing, some smutty scenes and wait for it an epic romance Shoot me, I m a romantic So obvious [...]


    8. 3.5 stars I bet we all had a Badger in us, an impulse to hurt and punish This is a book that I think will stay with me a while Why not a higher rating I liked this book, I really did But the subject matter is not really for me On top of that, I really would not consider this a romance in any way because not once did I root for these characters to end up together I did consider giving this a 4 due to the amazing and compelling writing style this author has, but ultimately this book left me unsati [...]

    11. So I read this book.And now I am broken.It was like a shot of tequila on an empty stomach Getting me drunk then making me sick.I think it might be the ugliest thing I have ever read.May I some day possess the smallest fraction of its courage and honesty.I will write a proper review But right now I just can t You should read this oh shit meant to say, I edit for BMP so bias or whatever Attempt at useful reviewing Okay, so I feel I need to say something actually useful about this book for anyone [...]


    12. 3.5 starsI totally get the high ratings, and I m tempted to give 4 stars just because the writing and subject matter was done so well, but I gotta go with my gut I liked this one, but I wasn t in like with it.It s very possible that my mindset was just not in the right place when I decided to tackle it I m always on board whenever anyone says the magic word dark But this book was a total downer for me I feel quite bad about it, because even after reading it, I still feel as if I should ve loved [...]

    14. 5 Literary GENIUS Stars Every now and than I ll read a book and have this inner monologue raging within my head Sometimes the monologue is good, sometimes it s not so good With Badger it went something like this Holy shit on a popsicle stick this is so refreshing, so poignant, so deep yet I know, in the end it s gonna gut me Prepare for book hangover, Allison, because it s forthcoming Luckily I read TWO reviews on this book prior to venturing in, both enough to interest me yet didn t spoil a thi [...]


    15. 6 yep, 6 because 5 is not enough STARS Is there a word beyond exceptional that I can use I need it I m reaching for it But I literally just finished reading the book and I m so much in awe of it I just can t I m completely at a loss for words I m blown away.Honestly, just It is brutally honest, unforgiving, unsettling, deeply thought provoking and poignant.The plot and storyline are astonishingly brilliant and profound.The voice is cynical and darkly compellingIS BOOK NEEDS TO BE READ Adrian and [...]


    16. 4.5 Stars My name is Adrian Birch, and I m nobody My name is Adrian Birch, and I used to be nobody An apologist, a coward Then I met a madman on a bicycle and I lost my mind, lost my way, got my heart broken and my head rewired, and woke from a nightmare of my own design, fear gone like an ex lover I d never spread my legs for again This story was nothing like I have read before Words to describe this Extremely disturbing, smart, surprisingly humorous, emotional, and distressing.To keep the plot [...]

TITLE BadgerAUTHOR C.M McKenna GENRE Contemporary RomanceRELEASE DATE August 31st 2015MY RATING 5 STARSSooooo this is totally left field to what I ve recently been reading but now and then you have to throw in some grit, some dark and some tearsOk here s the thing with this book I didn t find it at all dark or gritty, I didn t shed one tear until near the end then they leaked like a sieve, and I did find The Badger to be one sick Mother F cker, through no fault of his own, he s a product of the [...]


    19. FIVE FABULOUS FUCKING STARS Wow Just fucking WOW I m totally blown away I have read a few stories by McKenna, and even though I have loved what I have read from her, I had no idea she was capable of a story like this one I went into this story blind, as I think everybody should I started it at bedtime and I read until 1 30 a.m when I absolutely had to go to bed because I was getting up in a couple of hours later I didn t want to even pick this up again until I could actually finish reading throu [...]


    20. Badger broke my heart So unexpectedly.So surprisingly easy, The taste of heartbreak is still on my tongue,Evidence clear on the puffiness under my eyes My drug was nearly six feet tall now, clad in a striped jacket instead of an orange bottle.But it still didn t love me back Heartbreak started with a hoodlum with a dark hoodie but a colorful bicycle.The delinquent boy took revenge on people who did something wrong.Only for paying them back.Heartbreak are white paint balls.A woman who searched hi [...]


    21. Yet another BR with my favourite and you can read his thoughts over here Something I just said to AJH I haven t stopped crying since chapter 35 I feel wrecked and devastated and lost but so very glad that I read it.I was moved to feel that way because Badger is brutal, harsh, uncompromising, unforgiving, upsetting, distressing, compelling It is so beautifully ugly And brave Brave because Badger isn t a romance and it never tries to be one Brave because it takes a familiar trope the male MC suffe [...]




    22. 4.5 stars It s not for the faint of heart, it s packed with action.d a touch of romance.Wish there was romance, not just self hatred, and less emphasis on the whole vigilante thing.I didn t like that I had to doubt Badger s moral compass and his motivations This story was a subtle and complicated narrative, a mixture of vigilante action, dark romance, disturbed and twisted perception of love and making sex, and antihero qualitites The imagery was vivid, and the personalities were intriguing.The [...]


    23. I finished Badger last night.Today, I m still recovering from it and choking on my emotions.Not sure if I can start another book just yet.I wish I was good enough with the words to write all my feelings here doing justice at this fascinating story.Special thank you to Vix for putting up with my crap 3


    24. It s a wrap at 27% I can t get into this one and after searching for spoilers in reviews I m glad I decided to stop because I m sure I would of wanted to throw my kindle at the end and I love my kindle lolI m glad so many loved this one it s just not one that grabbed me


    25. 5 Perplexing, exciting, ill advised, ridiculous, orgasmic STARS Badger s justice was impersonal and thoughtless and selfish, exactly like the crimes he avenged He was karma on a bike He was perfect Este libro es uno de los mejores que le en todo el a o Me gusto tanto que decid no leer nada mas para que este fuera mi broche de oro del 2015 Me gusto mucho la portada.En uno oc ano lleno de portadas con modelos guapos, fue refrescante ver una portada como esta.La historia me trajo revuelta de emocio [...]



    26. 5 are not enough stars for this book People said he was dirty and feral, an urban transient People loved or hated him There are certain books that deserve to be read in one sitting to fully appreciate and maximise that intense and incredible emotional connection you ultimately feel when you are swept away in the story and characters To be so fully immersed in a journey so vivid ugly yet flawless so gritty and powerful that you travel with it as if your whole body and mind is swept up in its rapi [...]
