A sexy, laugh out loud standalone romance from USA Today Bestseller Lili Valente!
When you’ve been screwed over by Mr. Wrong, let a Spectacular Rascal show you how good it feels to be bad.
You know the smooth, successful New York businessman type? Well, I'm the other guy—the one you don’t bring home to mama. The tattooed, rough-around-the-edges, 100% primal badass.
As the resident bad boy of Magnificent Bastard Consulting, I’ve got what it takes to make sure your dangerous dick of an ex thinks twice before he knocks on your door again.
Or I thought I did, until I meet my latest client…
Now my wild, sexy, one-that-got-away is looking up at me with her big green eyes, daring me to take on an ex as dick-ish and dangerous as hers. But all I want to do is take her—again and again.
Soon Cat and I are setting sex marathon records and medaling in the orgasm Olympics, all while staying one step ahead of her former Mr. Wrong. Everything is golden, except for the fact that I’m falling hard for this woman and all she wants is more of Curved for her Pleasure (trust me, the nickname fits).
Now I have to prove to Cat that I’m nothing like the dangerous man she’s left behind, and do it all before our time runs out. Considering her ex is with the mob, if we’re not careful, that could be sooner than either one of us thinks…
Warning: SPECTACULAR RASCAL is a sexy, standalone romantic comedy told from the hero’s point of view. No cliffhanger. Lots of dirty talk.

A Review of Spectacular Rascal by Lili Valente
Be still my heart - 5+++++ stars
I knew from the previous book in this series that I was going to like Aidan's story. I really appreciated that his story picked up where we last saw him — doing the streak through Prospect Park to get the cops off of Bash and Penny, so they could get away.
I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know more about the friendship that Bash and Aidan have, going back to elementary school. I also got a huge kick out of the nicknames Aidan and Cat had when they were part of the Dashers club in college. I do find it kinda funny that they never knew each others real names for over two years, but it's not completely unbelievable.
There were lots of twists and turns in the story, enough to keep me on the edge of my seat at times and a few times that brought me to tears, but this is one of those stories that you will want to read over and over again, just for the feelings it invokes.
I certainly hope this is not the last we hear from The Magnificent Bastard Consulting crew. I absolutely love the style of these books and how the author is telling these stories.

Lili Valente has done it again!
Once again, Lili Valente has written a magnificently entertaining story filled with humor, passion and a bit of suspense proving her grand ability to draw me into the lives of her characters and becoming one with their universe. Spectacular Rascal returns us to world created in Ms. Valente’s novel, Magnificent Bastard, but this time reintroducing us to Aiden whom we met before.
Though Aiden’s passion it running his tattoo business, his best friend and owner of Magnificent Bastard Consulting, has convinced him to work for him as well. But unlike Bash’s smooth, gorgeous businessman persona, Aiden is the complete opposite. His “bad boy” look comes complete with a beard and tattoo sleeves covering each arm. This façade is perfect for the hard-to-get-rid of ex’s, you know the ones that just don’t seem to get the hint that it’s over. But despite his gruff and tough-guy exterior, Aiden has the heart of a giant teddy bear.
When he meets his new client, Cat, the memories of 11 years ago come flooding back. Aiden is determined to turn her away because of the potential conflict of interest; that is until he meets her ex who just happens to be in the mob and is about as scary and creepy as they come and clearly is not going to take Cat’s no for an answer. In spite of his hesitation, Aiden begins to feel a protectiveness for Cat and recognizes how much she needs his help. As they begin to spend more time together, their relationship moves beyond and simple business arrangement. When the connection from the past again resurfaces, it makes it nearly impossible for him to walk away. And as Cat remembers their past as well, she also wants more from Aiden. Will Aiden be able to keep Cat safe from her ex, and will they find comfort and love in each other’s arms, the kind of love which is meant to last a lifetime?
Aiden is such a sweetheart making me absolutely swoon over and over again, and his “dirty talk” with Cat is oh-so-sexy. Cat is a bit on the crazy side which I must admit makes me love her as well and believe me when I say she can deliver the “dirty talk” as well as she can take it. The banter between these characters is hysterical making me chuckle and laugh out loud. Lili Valente at one point even breaks the fourth wall talking directly to the reader which is absolutely fantastic (not to mention the creatively amusing epilogue). I just couldn’t stop giggling it was so much fun.
Spectacular Rascal is definitely a must, must read. If you haven’t given Lili Valente a chance in the past, this is certainly a great place to start. She has an absolutely undeniable knack for combining comedy with hot, sexy passion with elements of suspense and danger that will keep you coming back for more, more, more!
The opening scene in this one with Aidan sets the tone for the crazy wild ride to come. The humor was by far my favorite aspect of the book. The banter and interaction especially the flashbacks sucked me in. Aidan is one yummy guy and he now has the second chance with the one that got away. The attraction between them is hot as ever. They have a ton of chemistry. He has his work cut out for him when he's hired to get her ex off her back. One problem the threat is really life or death. Can Aidan keep her safe?
