I was infatuated with Asher Kelley the moment he came tumbling through my brother’s window five years ago.
Even bruised and bloodied, he was the most beautiful boy I'd ever seen.
We couldn't ever be together.
I was too young, and he was too untouchable.
He was too troubled, and I was too naive.
But the heart is rebellious, and mine decided it didn’t care about any of those things.
As I got older, harmless flirting turned to stolen moments in dark corners.
Until one day, he was gone without a trace.
Now, three years later, he’s back.
Callous and cruel.
He’s my brother’s best friend. My parents’ worst nightmare.
I should hate him.
But like a Bad Habit, I can’t quit him.
I was drawn to Briar Vale from the first time she looked up at me with stars in her big, blue eyes.
She was just a kid, nothing but elbows and knees, but she was the most beautiful creature I'd ever seen.
We could never be together.
I was too old and she was too off limits.
She was too good and I was too fucked up.
Eventually, the temptation became too much to resist.
I risked everything for a kiss and she betrayed me.
Three years have passed and I’m forced to see her again, but now she's all grown up.
She’s my best friend’s baby sister. My downfall.
I hate her for what she did.
But she's always been my drug of choice

like the title suggests, he returns like a bad habit, or a habit he just can't keep away from? A good read, not as dark as the cover portrays which is what first caught my attention.
Bad Habit is a brothers best friend and childhood to adult romance.
Asher is a few years older than Briar who is only on her early teens and when Briar's childhood crush turns into more and an evening of comfort nearly becomes more events follow that leaves Briar heartbroken.
Asher leaves and no one knows why and Bad Habit pretty much begins with Asher's return after a brief introduction on their childhood years and what happened the night before Asher's departure when he disappeared for a few years.
Asher lived in a home with only his dad who used to beat him up after a drink, were as Briar was from a privileged home and had the kind of parents that had very little interaction with their children, events and business came first. Asher spent all his time at Dash's home and Ash, Dash and Briar were like family they had all grown up together, until boundaries got blurred and neither Ash nor Briar looked at other with a sisterly/brotherly love anymore.
Asher returns for his dying father. There are questions to were he has been, why he left so suddenly and why does he now hate Briar so much? Only Asher knows the answer which becomes a revelation later in the book.
Bad Habit was a good read, I followed the plot with ease, the hot scenes and drama had a good balance, so not over the top with either.
It was an easy read, the suspense kept me going, I wanted to know why Asher left but the revelation wasn't as dramatic as I had hoped.
Briar although she was only 17 wasn't a whiny teen, she got upset for good reason at times but dusted herself off and carried on and Ash, he had a brooding alpha thing about him so I liked both the character's.
I would read more books in the series, I liked the extended characters too.
