RELEASE DAY REVIEW: Bad Habits by Neve Wilder and Onley James

Bad Habits by Neve Wilder and Onley James

Series: Wages of Sin #1

Release Date: October 13, 2020

Page Count: 281 pages

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Jonah taught Cas a million ways to protect his body but not one to protect his heart.

Smart-mouthed hacker Caspian escaped an abusive home at 16. Now he’s one of the most sought-after black hat hackers in the world.

Jonah is a ruthless contract killer with only one weakness, the vibrant runaway he took in years ago: Caspian.

But Cas bailed when he turned 18 and Jonah has maintained a steady diet of eat, kill, sleep since then.

Jonah had always been the fatal flaw in Cas’s code, the bug that froze the part of his brain separating logic from emotion.

A threat to Cas’s life brings him back years later—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.

Bad Habits is a steamy, action-packed thrill ride of a romance with a HEA and no cliffhangers. It features morally ambiguous men, dirty, dirty lovin’, pancakes drizzled with snark, chosen family, drive-in movies, and the kind of love that drives a guy to murder in order to protect. In short: all the emo, heat, and sarcasm you’d probably expect from an Onley/Neve collab. This is book 1 in the Wages of Sin series. Each book will follow a new couple.


I love genius hackers and I love assassins and adding in both, this book was perfect for me!!

I know Neve writes super hot books. But together with Onley James it’s sexy as fuck! Onley is a new to me author but I’m definitely rectifying that.🔥🔥🔥

It’s action packed and with a bit of intrigue that keeps on the edge of your seat. I devoured this book. Jonah and Cas are so right for each other and I love how Jonah slowly returns Cas’s previously unrequited feelings.

We have some great secondary characters. I loved Sadie and I’m really excited for Madigan’s book. I hope we see more of Sadie ’cause I love a badass woman.

The plot and the romance all comes down to a fast paced thriller and if you like morally ambiguous characters with their hearts in the right places, a band of misfits, scorching hot chemistry and sexy times, I’d definitely recommend Bad Habits.
