Cynical CEO, Nik Masterton, believes he’s finally met a woman who isn’t interested in his money…until she vanishes with a hefty amount of it. He’s been searching for her ever since and has finally found her doing a stint in Holloway prison for stealing...from someone else. Clearly, he’s just one of many. Now she’s coming out, and it’s time for a little payback.

After two years in prison, Summer Delaney is determined she’s never going back. While she had good reasons for doing what she did, it’s time to move on to a new life and earn an honest living. Unfortunately, there’s a glitch in her plan, and he’s waiting at the gate as she comes out.

Nik isn’t above using blackmail to make Summer work for him until he decides just how he’ll get his revenge. But this time they’re both determined to keep their distance. Right until the inconvenient attraction explodes between them...

Set in England, billionaire Nik Masterton is out to get the woman that took not only his money but also a piece of his heart. Summer Delaney has learned her lesson and promises to lead a better. Unfortunately the man she stole from wants has re-entered her life and it appears the new life she envisi ...more

Nik is either protective or jealous, but I had fun being in Summer's head while she was trying to figure it out, “well, let me know if he comes near you again.” What was he going to do about it? Take out a contract on the poor man? Fire him? He was still perched on her desk." I really liked this boo ...more

I love the premise of the Cutting Loose series. It’s about three women who meet in prison, become cellmate/ best friends, and promise to always have each other’s backs. Plus, make sure that when they are all out that they stay on the up and up.

Nina Croft is a relatively new to me au ...more

Blackmail, revenge and lust collide in Nina Croft's, Blackmailing the Bad Girl. Nina Croft is well - versed at writing equal opportunity stories. She's so good at it, it's difficult to identify the protagonist from the antagonist at times. Summer is looking for redemption, Nik wants revenge, who wil ...more

Nik Masterton has been hurt before, but what Summer Delaney did to him was a blow that he never thought she'd deliver. She seemed so sweet and innocent during all the time they spent together, but still she stole money from him and disappeared. Discovering she's been in prison for the past two years ...more

Blackmailing the Bad Girl by Nina Croft was full of interesting characters and the plot line was unique. Summers character was interesting and Nik was super sexy. I'm interested in reading more in this series of what happens with the secondary characters. I appreciate the opportunity to read the boo ...more

Loved this book! Summer is a bad girl who did two years in prison for her crime and was released with good intentions and a plan. Instead of her friend greeting her at the gate, she sees Nik, the CEO that misrepresented himself and that she stole from. He coerces her into leaving with him, then pres ...more

I really enjoyed this one. I found the storyline fun, fresh, and unique and while it had it's fair share of steamy sexy times there was much more to the story.

Two years ago Nik Masterton thought he had found a girl that wanted more from him than his money. Was he ever wrong. That was evident when he ...more

My Review:
This book was so much fun and so unexpected.

Nik and Summer met three years before, but neither was completely honest about who they were. Summer thought Nik was a night janitor. Nik thought Summer was Sarah, an accountant at his company. Instead Nik was the CEO of the company Summer was i ...more

book 2 in the cutting loose series does not disappoint, blackmailing the bad girl's summer delaney thinks she's done her time. unfortunately, one of her earlier marks, nik masterton begs to differ. three years ago she intrigued him and then took him for a fool, stealing money he thought she wasn't i ...more

Are you ready for more bad girls going good? Well Nina Croft is back just in time with the next book in the Cutting Loose series and it’s so good it should be illegal.

Summer and Nik’s story was not what I expected and that’s what I loved most about it. I love that the heroine is the bad girl going g ...more

What's a girl to do when she's about to get out of prison? Well, if you're Summer, you try to start over and keep bad influences out of your life. Unfortunately, Summer's past is about to catch up with her when she steps foot out of prison and finds a man she embezzled from, waiting for her. The man ...more

Up next in this series of bad girls is Summer. She is being released from prison after doing her time for crimes she committed and with plans of going straight and narrow. Expecting her friend to pick her up on release day, to say she’s shocked to see the man from her past she ripped off is an under ...more

By Kali June 07, 2017

3.5* Nik hasn't forgiven Summer for making him feel things that he hadn't really ever felt and then stealing from him. So after finding her, he was waiting for her when she got out of prison. Gave her an ultimatum, well technically you could call it blackmailing her.

The attraction hadn't died down, ...more

By Denise June 12, 2017

In this one the tables are turned it would seem as something different where the girl is the one who is bad. I do not normally read many of this type of storyline anymore but with the difference I thought why not. Summer is the one that made the wrong choices but one of those choices also wants to w ...more

By Kim July 13, 2017

Refreshing read. First book I've read with a female inmate! Getting out and ready to live on the straight and narrow. Setting things up for her two friends she made on the inside. Nik caught feelings while she was working at his company and has been looking for her since she left with a large chunk ...more

By Nicole June 19, 2017

I found this to be an entertaining story, although I wish we'd gotten more about the circumstances that led to Summer's decision to do what she did that eventually led to her having to go to prison (not easy to review and not give out any spoilers lol). Despite Nik's resolve to not be suckered in by ...more

By Steph June 27, 2017

When I received the opportunity to review one of Nina Croft's books, I jumped at the chance. While familiar with her writing, I was new to the Cutting Loose series. One of my quirks is hating not starting a series from the beginning. So, I bought the first book, Falling for the Bad Girl, and read it ...more

In Blackmailing The Bad Girl by Nina Croft, a wealthy CEO blackmails the woman he craves.

Summer Delaney worked for Nik Masterton’s company until she did a kiss and run. If that wasn’t bad enough, she did it while stealing a million dollars from him. Summer isn’t your average bad guy, though. She’s ...more

By Paula June 12, 2017

Nina Croft’s Cutting Loose book two is even better than book one. Once I started Blackmailing the Bad Girl, I did not want to stop reading. The office setting of one who had been looking for Summer for almost three years, grabbed my attention, never letting go until the very end.
This series is some ...more

I voluntarily read an advanced reviewers copy of this book

I loved everything about this book. I loved how Nik was so strong but had this soft blue side to him that didn't take away from his manliness but somehow made him ultra sexy. I also really liked Summers character because she in a way was real ...more
