I’ve always been a good girl. I work hard, I follow the rules, and I always achieve my goals.
But sometimes good girls want things that aren’t good for them. Or someone who isn’t good for them. Like their new boss.
And sometimes they do very bad things to get his attention. Like sell their virginity in an auction.
Who knew he’d be so very, very mad? Maybe this was not my best laid plan…
“This guy makes me feel like I could be actively promiscuous. Yup. When I see him I’m pretty sure I’ve got untapped slut potential.”
There’s something about Ms. Aston’s writing style that just does it for me.
When a Good Girl goes all naughty inside, you know you’re in for a treat. Lydia is fresh out of college and along with her best friend (whose story I expect to read real soon) has landed a great job in a new casino/hotel in Vegas. A rule follower by nature, she hasn’t had the time nor the inclination to foray into the whole sex thing. Set on changing all this now that she is ready to start her adult life, she shares a kiss with a hot stranger in a bar (prodded by her best friend).
When hot bar guy turns out to be the general manager of her place of employment aka her boss’s boss’s boss… well, there’s no law that says she can’t lust after him still, is there?
“I just want to be good for you. I like it when you tell me I’m a good girl. That really does it for me.”
I absolutely adored Lydia, most of the time. Her thought process was totally hilarious and she could go on completely absurd tangents, though sometimes it was too much even for me. Fortunately, this was not all the time, and the fun I had with her overshadowed any annoyance. She was sweet, caring and hard-working. Probably a bit on the naïve side, but I could actually relate to that. I just outright liked Lydia and her peculiar approach to getting Rhys attention.
I loved how Rhys couldn’t help himself but be charmed by Lydia. And even though he was a total bobblehead about his feelings and how he pursued her, he was totally adorkable, and they were more than cute together. Also, he really knew his stuff and that made him hotter.
I don’t particularly like my heroes doing the whole “I’m not worthy of her” or the “I’m too old for her” (Though have you noticed that all of Ms. Aston’s books are about olderish men? Which is not a complaint, I love it) so this meant it took a bit of the enjoyment of the story for me.
Having read Good Thing, although the stories loosely intersect, both can be read as standalones. That said, I wouldn’t deprive myself from reading either.
With awesome chemistry, interesting side characters I want to know more of, laugh-my-butt-off humor, and plenty of hot shenanigans, Good Girl was as entertaining as it was sexy. Can we push up the next one, please?
