Book Review – The Expert (Bad Babygirls, #3) by Zoe Blake


Hello bookish friends!! Today, I have my review for the final book in the Bad Babygirl series by Zoe Blake and what a ride it has been… Definitely felt uncomfortable and out of my comfort zone, but I still enjoyed the overall storyline.

The synopsis comes with a warning from the author and I suggest you take that literally. Even though there’s humor and a few lighthearted moments, this book/series is twisted. There are no sweet hugs, swoony kisses, or gentle touches. It’s a daddy dom erotica series, so if that’s not your thing, then you migth want to skip this.

Despite her dangerous profession she has an air of naïve innocence.
It makes her weak, vulnerable… easy prey for a man like me.
Until now, I’ve been content to stay in the shadows, but someone has made a deadly mistake, they have threatened what’s mine.
My little one is about to understand that Daddy is done watching.
It’s time I claim my babygirl.




A Twisted, Dark, and Exhilirating Conclusion


Book Rating 4.5 Hearts / Series Rating 4 Hearts

The Expert perfectly wraps this series with more danger, angst, steam, humor, and believe it or not, there’s even a few heartwarming moments. I will never understand or get this Daddy Dom kink, but if it works for some people, then that’s great and I think they’ll really enjoy this book/series.

I like danger, sinful, and dark romances with a some tender and sweet swoony moments so reading this series really took me out of my comfort zone. It wasn’t an easy story to get through, but I honestly don’t regret picking up this book/series and I really did have some twisted fun with the babygirls.

As I mentioned in my review for The Thief, I really rooted for Lyla and Roman together and enjoyed their chemistry and bantering. However, I think The Expert is my favorite book out of the series because of Quinn. I enjoyed her character development the most, and like Piper and Lyla, I felt really protective of her. I found her sweet, shy and quiet nature quite endearing. There’s also something charming, magnetic, and lovable about Quinn. She’s incredibly talented, resourceful, smart, and caring. I won’t spoil anything for you, but Quinn is totally a badass babygirl and I really like how much she matures in the end.

The romance between Quinn and Ryder is steamy and exciting. I liked their chemistry and some of their scenes are quite fun. However, I found Ryder just overwhelmingly possessive and controlling of Quinn that it turned me off quite a bit. I do like that he’s protective of Quinn… actually I think in some twisted way, I loved how insanely protective the men are with their babygirls. I also seemed to like Ethan and Piper a bit more in this book. But, my number 1 ship in the series is still Lyla and Roman.

This has been a wicked ride! After reading this series, there’s no doubt in my mind that  Zoe Blake is an astonishing dark romance writer. While I’m still and very much not into the type of dark romance stories she writes, I think she’s incredibly gutsy, wildly creative, and talented. I honestly felt so uneasy and distraught throughout this book/series, but I still could not stop myself from reading and turning the pages. There’s just something delciously addictive with the overall storyline.

All in all, The Expert is a fabulous ending to this twisted dark romance series. I honestly can’t say if I’ll ever seek out and read these type of stories any time soon, but if you love and enjoy reading taboo kinky romances, then I think this book series is perfect for you.

If I have to hurt her to get what I want… I will.
No is not an option.
My little con artist is about to learn I run my criminal enterprise with an iron fist.
She is no exception.
She will do as Daddy tells her or there will be pain.
Little does she know how much I will enjoy inflicting it.






I will stop at nothing to get the information I need.
No matter how much she fights me… I will win in the end.
My little thief cannot steal away, I don’t care how hard she tries.
Daddy’s in charge now.
She either follows my rules, or there will be consequences… painful ones.







Daddy’s going to own me.
I knew computer hacking would get me into trouble one day, but not like this.
Kidnapped and held captive in a military compound, I’m held down and branded with the number thirteen.
Just when I think my captors have pushed me to the end of my limits, I discover there’s worse to come.
A man forcing me to call him Daddy.
He’s going to make me submit to him.
The more I fight, the more he likes it.

There is something delicious in our desire for the corrupt, our ravenous appetite for the brutal, the profane, the unspeakable. The taboo. I write the type of books that give you a frisson of unease; that will have you questioning your own resolve as I take you on a dark ride of twists, kinks and perversions of both the flesh and mind. Enjoy the blush and tremble as you read each decadent word. XOXO Zoe
