Listen… hear me out. Back when I was first discovering Wattpad and becoming the chronically online person that I am today, I was drawn to the ease of reading books on my phone that I didn’t have to pay for. Wattpad was a way for me to read stories that I often found myself completely falling into. I only read the completed stories because I was incredibly impatient, and I devoured books at an almost unhealthy rate. Now I’m calling A Bad Boy Stole My Bra iconic because every time I think of Wattpad; I remember this freaking book.
As evidenced by the fact that all I talk about is romance on this platform, it should surprise no one that I got my start on Wattpad. Did I write my own stories on Wattpad? I attempted, but my mother shut that down real quick because they were… less than appropriate, but I digress.
A Bad Boy Stole My Bra
Riley is getting a new neighbor, and let’s just say that bad boy Alec is definitely not what she expected or wanted. Maybe the bad boy next door is exactly what she needs though. Well, that is until he sneaks through her window and steals her bra on a dare. Now, Riley not only has to get her Mickey Mouse bra back, she has to plot her revenge.
Originally published by Cherry_Cola_X in 2014 on Wattpad, The Bad Boy Stole My Bra was a cultural reset for me. To put this in perspective for you, I was in eighth grade whenever I read this. I would be sitting in the back of my science class, giggling to myself at Alec and Riley’s antics. Is the writing amazing? Not particularly, but it was revolutionary to me at the time. Despite this, The Bad Boy Stole My Bra garnered over 104 million reads! It also gained a sequel, The Anti-Delinquent System, which was also published traditionally under Behind Frenemy Lines by Lauren Price.
I blame all of my relationship problems on authors because I want an epic love story that would eventually evolve into a well-used romance trope. Also, reading books about ‘bad boys’ during my formative years has directly impacted my taste in men as of now. And I know I’m not the only one either; my TikTok fyp is proof enough of that!
If you’re looking for some Wattpad nostalgia, definitely pick up a copy of A Bad Boy Stole My Bra by Lauren Price because you’re sure to get a whole heap full of feelings. Cliches run rampant through the pages, but hey, we love them! This dual POV book is what got me hooked on the Wattpad app, and I can’t say that much has changed in my taste in books since then.
We all know how much Wattpad does for their authors; this is just one of the earlier examples of their influence. Lauren Price’s publications of A Bad Boy Stole My Bra and Behind Frenemy Lines showcases that the newest era of readers will continue to impact the way we consume media.
