The Bad Decision Legacy by Morgan Kay ♥ Review, Book Tour & GIVEAWAY ♥ (Romantic Suspense)


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.


A wild ride!

I liked reading Tonya and Will because they were a little awkward with each other in an endearing way.

Tonya seemed to have a streak of clumsiness and bad luck, though not all of it was her fault; she had creepy Clint to thank for some of it.

Clint's tendency to cause catastrophic situations for Tonya kept the story interesting because, well, I never knew what to expect!

Will was a little shy, and maybe a little jaded about love given his line of work. But he knew who he liked, and it was definitely Tonya! His patience and care of her was absolutely adorable.

All in all, this was an intense read with a relentless villain, and one heck of an ending!

***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***



A quick scan revealed he was in his business attire, minus the suit jacket. His loosened tie and undone top button announced he was ready to leave work behind for the day. He held out his empty hand. “Hi, I’m Will, Will Robinson.”

Tonya gave his hand a vigorous shake remembering from her business training that a weak handshake always decreased the client’s confidence in your ability. “Hi, Will Robinson. Wasn’t your family trying to get to Alpha Centauri?” The quip may have been ill-advised, but his name brought up memories of an old science fiction show sometimes featured in black and white reruns. It also helped cover her surprise that a simple touch jumpstarted a chemical reaction, one she’d considered out of commission.

Will kept her hand a tad longer than needed, while he smiled with his eyes. “Ah, we weren’t that Robinson family. Mine was the one that hadn’t seen the show and didn’t understand why naming me Will was not a kindness.”

Tonya found herself grinning back at the witty male. “Did the other kids pick on you?”

“Not too much, but there was this one female who gave me a hard time, and I didn’t even know her name.” He nodded toward the front door where Lynne stood waiting.

She almost asked him what grade that was until she realized he was referring to her. “Oh, her. The name’s Tonya Smiley.”

Her last name embarrassed her. It was such a cute name. Why couldn’t she have an ordinary name like Tyler or Brooks? To push past the inevitable remarks about her being smiley or having a beautiful smile or even her name suiting her, she went defensive. “Why were you sneaking around eavesdropping on our girl talk?”

Her abrupt question triggered Lynne’s coughing. In between coughs, she managed to mutter, “Watch it.”

Will threw his hands up over his head, one still wrapped around the neck of the wine bottle. “You got me. I’m guilty. I snuck out the side door that Marc showed me to retrieve the wine I forgot. The two of you were deep into conversation. I didn’t think it was my place to interrupt, but when I felt your outfit was being criticized, I had to say something.”

  3. Requiring a purchase of these books to write a review is against the rules. You cannot require a purchase to enter a contest! Or even to get an extra entry for that contest.

    Asking entrants to purchase a product or spend money to increase your chances of winning is illegal. This is why if you read the terms and conditions of the giveaway you’re entering, you’ll see the phrase ‘NO PURCHASE NECESSARY’ so often (it’s the very first disclaimer you’ll read in our terms and conditions boilerplate)

    1. Hi Slehan! You bring up a great point, and I have read the article you cited.

      Please feel free to contact the author in this blog post (this giveaway is NOT being run by Romance Novel Giveaways[I certainly don't own that much in gift cards ;) ], but is being run by Morgan Kay) and voice your concern.

      However, I wonder if the "post a review" entries could be for the people who are fans of hers and had previously purchased the books anyway, or for people who requested a free copy, such as myself, or if the books ever happened to be on sale for free on Amazon or another retailer and people downloaded it then. There are many ways to leave a review without having to make a purchase, and many authors LOVE giving away their books in exchange for the possibility of leaving a review (which is NOT illegal https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/ftcs-endorsement-guides-what-people-are-asking) but again, I can absolutely see how that toes the line of the "no purchase necessary" caveat.
