Title: Good Girl vs. Bad Boy
Series: Brody Brothers #1
Author: Jessie Evans
Genre: Sexy Romantic Comedy
Release Date: November 12, 2015
Let the battle of the sexes begin…
He’s hot, wild, unpredictable, untamable, and her best friend’s older brother.
Colton Brody is everything a good girl like Phoebe Page should avoid. But since her sister Kelly’s death, Phoebe isn’t as worried about being good as she used to be. She wants to live big with no regrets, the way Kelly did, and she intends to start with having a top secret, super steamy, no-strings-attached holiday fling with the man she’s crushed on her entire life.
What could go wrong?
Wounded in action and discharged without a chance to prove himself, all Colton cares about is getting back into the Marine Corps where he belongs. He will not get sucked into small town drama, will not take that promotion at the firehouse, and certainly won’t fall in love with his little sister’s best friend. He’s down for friends-with-benefits, nothing more, and plans to leave town long before quirky, bossy, cute-as-a-button Phoebe can get under his skin.
He is in control.
At least until a certain sexy brunette turns his world upside down.
It isn’t long before Colton finds himself buying flowers, talking feelings, and wishing Phoebe wanted more than another night of hot, no-holds-barred sex. Because when he’s with Phoebe even hot and dirty feels like making love.
Now Colton will have to decide what’s worth fighting for—the dreams a plane crash stole from him or the dream he’s holding in his arms.
WARNING: Good Girl vs. Bad Boy contains a mix of heart-warming romance, quirky characters, laugh out loud moments, and blisteringly hot banging. If you don’t like hot sex, laughter, mentions of humping unicorns, turkey bowling, off-beat town rituals, or graphic descriptions of artisanal pancakes, steer clear.
RELEASES FEBRUARY 16, 2016
Good Girl vs. Bad Boy falls solidly in the best-friend's-brother category, one of my favorite romance tropes. Jessie Evans does a spectacular job of writing this, with wonderful characters, an interesting storyline, and some smoking hot intimate scenes.
I loved both Colton and Phoebe. They are both great characters that fit together perfectly. The fact that they have known each other for so long already gives us some background to the two of them so that them coming together isn't really insta-lovey at all. Everything about Colton will have you quickly adding him to your book boyfriend list. Even though he's billed as a "bad boy", he really doesn't come across like it in the story...by the time this story takes place, his player ways are pretty much behind him. Phoebe cracked me up with her constant clumsy, seriously unlucky ways.
I really like the small-town setting, it works well with this couple...and where else will you find such quirky hometown holiday events like a coffin race? The writing flows smoothly, and from the moment you start reading you won't want to put this down.
For me, this was a solid 4-star read, and I'm really looking forward to reading more in the series (especially Tucker, his story sounds like it's really going to grab my heart!). Good Girl vs. Bad Boy I'd recommend for 18+ due to some seriously steamy sexual content.
She's married to the man of her dreams, and together they're raising a few adorable, mischievous children in a cottage in the jungle. She grew up in rural Arkansas, spending summers running wild, being chewed by chiggers, and now appreciates her home in a chigger-free part of the world even more.
When she's not writing, Jessie enjoys playing her dulcimer (badly), sewing the worlds ugliest quilts to give to her friends, going for bike rides with her house full of boys, and drifting in and out on the waves, feeling thankful for sun, surf, and lovely people to share them with.
