From The Book Junkie Reads . . .The Bad Decision Legacy (Men of Machismo, #1) . . .
The suspense was in your face. The tension was filling the pages with each turn. The intensity of the fear pouring off the pages in regards to Tonya and her realization that her ex- will stop at nothing to get what he wants. The intense attraction. The magnetic pull of desire and lust. The curtain of hidden secrets, past deed, current dealing. All these things lend to the roar of a ride that culminates in a intensely climatic ending. 

There are some things you feel you just have to know. Then there are things that are better left alone never to be touched again, if ever. Tonya learns this and more. He ex wants her. Her best friend send her on a blind date. Her blind date desires her.

The tension, suspense, action, drama all unfolds with much to be rewarded if the end is accomplished alive and intact.  You may even laugh a time or two. maybe a little too loud before you get to the end.
**This ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review.**

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 seven years later. The Bad Decision Legacy is Will and Tonya’s story.

Tonya’s psychotic ex is stalking her. Not the best time to meet men, still her best friend begs her to show up for blind date dinner. Her plan includes the meet and greet, then heading home. Of course, she never expected a man who sent every hormone in her body into high alert. Will looked like her next bad decision.

Will’s work as a divorce lawyer included discouraging embittered women from ramming their soon to be exes with the car or setting fire to their husband’s latest girlfriend. No wonder he fell hard for Tonya. The first woman he met with no agenda, well almost none. It’s obvious Tonya is knee deep in trouble, but refuses to ask for help. Instead of running the other way, he contemplates dashing into the tornado she refers to as her life. With any luck, he might survive.

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…”

Art Imitates Life
People always want to know if any of my stories are real. Actually, about seventy-five
percent of all my straight romances are about real life events. They are rather like stories featured in confessional magazines that could have happened to someone.
With that in mind, I look for current topics that are important to women. In The Bad Decision Legacy, I chose to use the topic of what happens when a woman make an impulsive decision to hook up with the wrong guy. It can have a long-lasting legacy.
Right now, there are thousands, possibly millions of single women, dating, pursuing profiles of possible romantic prospects.  They have no way of knowing if the man is who he said he is, single, reasonably okay, and not a jerk.

What happens is they meet; go out, maybe even form connection only to find out something is not quite right. Usually when this happens, the couple breaks up. That would be great if that were the end of the story, but unfortunately, the unstable individual ends up trying to instigate another attempt at the relationship or destroys anyone who intervenes.

This is such a common occurrence where the psychotic person bullies the former romantic interest. The person makes the mistake of ignoring the man or worse, no one takes it seriously. This can escalate so quickly. In my lifetime, I’ve seen several women killed by a former lover. This is one of the reasons I’ve addressed this issue.
I want people to understand how this could happen and how to escape the cycle too.
