"A masterpiece! Tristan and Danika have a story told so realistically by R.K. Lilley, you'll ache for them in BAD THINGS, and have a hard time remembering this is a novel. A very well written novel at that. Off the charts sexy, soul-baring emotion, and explosive chemistry between the two mix together here into pure literary gold. BAD THINGS is a beautiful thing!"

~Raine Miller
NYT's Bestselling Author of The Blackstone Affair


Danika hasn’t had an easy life. Being insanely attracted to bad boys has never helped make it easier.  
One look at Tristan, and every brain cell she possessed went up in smoke. This man was trouble with a capital T. It was a given.
She knew better. Bad boys were bad. Especially for her. Considering her history, it was crazy to think otherwise. So why did crazy have to feel so damn fine?
For as long as she could remember, Danika had been focused on the future with single-minded purpose. Tristan came along and taught her everything there was to know about letting go, and living in the present. She fell, hard and deep. Of course, that only made her impact with the ground that much more devastating.

Bad Things is about Tristan and Danika, and their train wreck of a love story. This series can be read as a standalone, or with the Up in the Air series.

Bad Things is a full length novel, at roughly 105,000 words.

This book is intended for ages 18 and up.

ROCK BOTTOM 
BOOK TWO: TRISTAN & DANIKA 

Their love had the power of a runaway freight train, and the potential to be just as destructive. 
The tempestuous sequel to Bad Things picks up where the first book left off. Reeling from a profound loss, Tristan and Danika struggle to pick up the pieces and build a life together, but the hard habits of a lifetime are not so easy to escape.  
Rock Bottom takes us on a dual point of view journey through addiction and desire, through love and agony, and answers the question we’ve been asking since these characters were introduced in Grounded: “What happened between Tristan and Danika?” 

DANIKA 
Even love couldn’t cushion a fall like ours. My love for Tristan was so big that I felt consumed by it, and even so, it was not enough to overpower our combined demons. 
I struggled. I yelled and screamed. I scratched and kicked.  
I fought like hell, but even the most determined fighters have to stop before they break.  
No one could say I didn’t fight for him.  
“I love you,” I spoke softly into his ear.  
He gripped me harder. “I can’t ever lose you, Danika. I’m not sure I’d survive it.”  
“You’ve got me. And I’m not going anywhere. Not ever.”  
I meant the words when I said them, but life had other plans for us. 
I’d have given my life for that fight. In fact, I very nearly did.  

TRISTAN 
She was the one.  
If I’d ever had a doubt, I didn’t now. She was the one I’d be thinking about, longing for, until I took my last breath. If I lost her tomorrow, I’d pine for her like a lovesick fool.  
This was the kind of love that only hit you once in your life. 

This book is intended for readers 18 and up.
