Sebastian Lindstrom lives his life in a black and white manner. Gray is not a place his brain comprehends. Some say he’s on the spectrum, others simply believe he’s a psychopath with little leeway for the common ground.
Camille Briarlane is a sweet, smart, science teacher. Her love of science is a passion she conveys to her students and keeps her hypothesizing about changing the world one plant at a time. Her compassionate side attributes to the kindheartedness she displays to students, friends, and her boyfriend. However, underneath ever cookie cutter perfect person lies the need to be a little selfish, maybe even a little naughty.
Celia Aaron, the queen of the dark romance certainly wows her fans with The Bad Guy. Aaron’s character development of Sebastian Lindstrom as the anti-hero, Camille Briarlane as the fair maiden, and Link as the hero is only the beginning of the twists and turns Aaron creates through her amazing stylistic skills. Aaron’s ability in creating anti-heroes the audience falls in love with and fallen heroes who readers loathe by the end is a true tribute to her talents. Her heroines also stand up to the prose audience through the dynamic character development and strength Aaron conjures up for these bright women she molds together. In true Aaron fashion, The Bad Guy travels down the road less taken and turns out to be sprinkled with a touch of nice and a smattering of naughty in all the right places. As always Celia Aaron delivers the reads her audience craves and The Bad Guy is one more to check off your TBR!
My name is Sebastian Lindstrom, and I’m the villain of this story.
I’ve decided to lay myself bare. To tell the truth for once in my hollow life, no matter how dark it gets. And I can assure you, it will get so dark that you’ll find yourself feeling around the blackened corners of my mind, seeking a door handle that isn’t there.
Don’t mistake this for a confession. I neither seek forgiveness nor would I accept it. My sins are my own. They keep me company. Instead, this is the true tale of how I found her, how I stole her, and how I lost her.
She was a damsel, one who already had her white knight. But every fairy tale has a villain, someone waiting in the wings to rip it all down. A scoundrel who will set the world on fire if that means he gets what he wants. That’s me.
I’m the bad guy.
