5 out of 5 Stars

Forty-one-year-old Carla is a successful, rich attorney who has just about everything in life she could possibly need—except a satisfying sexual relationship. Her best friend Janet continually harps on Carla’s lack of intimacy. When Carla’s new neighbor turns out to be a sexy, young escort who specializes in pleasing older women, Carla finally takes a chance and explores her newfound sexual appetite.

Jake has shied away from relationships his whole life, choosing instead to please women with no attachment. But he has rules for his clients: they’re not allowed to touch him at all, he never gets involved with a neighbor, and he never falls in love with a client. When Janet pays for a session with Jake for Carla, Carla has to convince him to break his rule about neighbors. And as time goes on, Carla finds she really wants Jake to break his other two rules as well.

Want it Bad was an extremely amusing, hot read. I didn’t think those two qualities could fit together so well, but DuChamp was able to make everything about this story work well. The banter between best friends Carla and Janet was laugh out loud funny. Janet is completely crude and can turn any statement into sexual innuendo, so if crude humor is not your thing, this book might not be your cup of tea.

I’ll admit some of the situations in the story weren’t realistic, like how often Carla peeps in Jake’s window, Jake having “an old friend” whose house he’s living in and who leaves her dog all her money, and Jake being a virgin, but the rest of the story was so well done that it was easy to overlook these issues.

Carla was a strong character who showed growth throughout the story. Even with her back-and-forth indecisiveness, she continually made progress in opening up to the sexual experiences and accepting that it was okay to enjoy the things she craved. And the heat was off-the-charts hot! I would call this BDSM-light, since their explorations dealt with safewords and pushing limits yet there was no focus on an actual Dom/sub relationship.

I did think the actual romance took a backseat to Carla’s exploration and realizations, but there was enough to the relationship to make it a good story with more plot than porn.

Want it Bad is a must read if you enjoy a hot plot with crude humor. I would definitely read more by this author.

Happy reading!
