Smart-mouthed hacker Caspian escaped an abusive home at 16. Now he’s one of the most sought-after black hatters in the world.
Jonah is a ruthless contract killer with only one weakness, the vibrant runaway he took in years ago: Cas.
But Cas bailed when he turned 18 and Jonah has maintained a steady diet of eat, kill, sleep since then.

A threat to Cas’s life brings him back—not as the boy Jonah remembers, but as a hardened computer hacker with a price on his head and a list of names everybody wants.
The chemistry between them is as undeniable as it is dangerous.
In a world of secrets and murder, trust is a liability and feelings can get you killed. But Jonah let Cas go once, and he’s not willing to do it again. Even if it means confronting his past, solving a twisted puzzle, and taking out half of New York City's seedy underbelly to keep Cas safe.
Damn. I devoured Bad Habits by Onley James and Neve Wilder in a handful of hours. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop. The characters—Jonah, Caspian, Madi, Red, Sadie—held me inthralled from the first chapter. They were all so well rounded and seemed essential to the story instead of people tossed upon the page for effect.
Caspian was a smart mouth little shit with fast fingers and a big brain that he used to pad his bank account becase . . . why not? I mean, if you got the skills to pay the bills, what the hell, right? Jonah was a contract killer with a steady hand and with enough loose morals to get the job done with a shoe string.
When the pair collided again after things got messy for Caspian on his last job, their chemistry lit the pages on fire almost immediately. They had a . . . complicated relationship to say the least because of their shared past but it didn't stand in their way for long—or at all, I suppose once it became clear the sisutation was indeed dire.
Nothing to make you realize you love someone like the knowledge you might lose them.
In a city filled to the brim with bad guys out for Caspian's blood, the pair of them banded together quickly, dragging old friends into the mix because solving problems is always more fun when you've got someone to banter with.
It took a little hard work—and a lot of murder and mayhem—but these two got their happy ever after.
I really enjoyed Bad Habits and will defiantly end up reading it again at some point.
I'm also looking forward to the next book PLAY DIRTY in the series.
