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?

Except everything?

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.


Loved this book right from the first page. Laughing so much at work while reading that I had to explain myself. Then almost couldn’t even do that as explaining what was making me laugh made me laugh even more! Completely loved the authors’ style of writing and will definitely be checking out what else she has written.

OMG what else can go wrong for Phoebe within minutes of waking up!?! But hey if it gets you half naked into the arms of your hot high school crush – who only seems to have gotten hotter – then it can’t be all bad.

Phoebe is back in her hometown Lover’s Leap and can’t wait to start over fresh again after the death of her sister. Her plan is to set up a shop and try to live life to the full, with no regrets, like her sister would have wanted her to. She seriously has some bad luck though with falling off things, which is where the lovely Colton comes in to the rescue. He seems like just the right man to try out her new no regrets, live life to the full way of life on.

Colton is back in Lover’s Leap after being discharged from the Marines having been wounded in action. For over a year now he has been bidding his time and trying to get back in shape so that he can go back into the marines. While at the same time also being a fireman – he can rescue me any day! That has been his plan and nothing and no one is going to stop him. Well that is until Phoebe falls into his arms not once but twice in one day. She definitely knows how to make a lasting impression (humping unicorn pj’s will do that). When she says that she is just looking for some fun while he is still in town he doesn’t know whether to jump right in or hang back, as he gets the feeling things will never just be simple between them.

Neither is looking to start something serious but they can’t deny the chemistry between them. Phoebe definitely knows how to get under Colton’s skin and once she is there he starts to think that he wants her to stay forever. Once they start down this road nothing will be the same again – so sit back and hold on for a fun bumpy ride.

Completely fell in love with the town they live in – frozen turkey bowling, coffin races – I so want to live there, just brilliant! Fantastic characters, loved their personalities, I have to say they are some of the best I have read. Funny, fantastic, smouldering hot read that is going to warm you up on a cold winters day, so enjoy.


5 out of 5 stars

I received this ARC from Give Me Books for my honest review.
