It was only supposed to be one time.
But that red-hot one night stand from the party?
The sexy man in the suit who gave me more Os in a few hours than I've had in a year?
Turns out my charming British stranger is keeping a little secret.
He's as much of a whiz in the kitchen as he is in the bedroom and soon we'll be going head-to-head in NYC's biggest bake off.
My one-time lover is now my enemy. I vow to loathe him for all eternity, though that would be easier if I wasn't dying to get naked with him again.
But the more I learn more about my rival, the more I suspect he just might be everything I've wanted...
If only I knew how to let him in...
5 Yummy Stars
Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente team up once again to bring us another five-star read and it's deliciously perfect! Hilariously funny, sexy as sin and adorably fun, Good to be Bad is a delightful read that will engage you from the first page. I was so engrossed that I read the entire story in one day. The sign of an amazing story is that you cannot put it down and this one fits the bill perfectly!
I adored the characters in this story. Gigi is a strong, independent, successful woman who knows what she wants and goes for it with gusto. She owns her sexuality and that is so empowering! West is the perfect man. He's successful, romantic, sexy and has a to-die-for British accent and boy am I a sucker for an accent! Trust me when I say that West is your next book boyfriend because this man is smokin'! These two have the perfect meet-cute and their connection is instantaneous. I loved their flirty banter, their competitiveness, their shared passions and the differences that make them the perfect match. Blakely and Valente turn up the heat and let me just say that Gigi and West are electric together! Holy Hannah, these two are hot, hot, HOT!!!
Good to be Bad is the perfect light-hearted, fun rom-com. It's sweet, sexy and a ton of fun to read. It's a complete standalone but is connected to 2 other books however there are little to no spoilers which makes it easy for readers to jump right in to the story. But I definitely recommend the other two stories in the series because they, too are fabulous. Grab this story and enjoy every second of it! 5 stars
A delicious treat
Good To Be Bad was a delightful read. West and Gigi were fantastic characters. I just loved their meet cute. It spoke to my nerdy self. They were such a good match. Their banter and interactions were swoony, fun, and hot. They brought out the best in each other and also a little competitive side which added to the fun. West was swoony and caring. Gigi was fierce, bold, and thoughtful. These two had me smiling and laughing throughout their story. I also enjoyed the backdrop of the cooking competition. I was wanting some of those creations-yum! It was nice seeing previous characters from the other two books in the series. Overall, this was an adorable story with sassy characters, great writing, and an entertaining storyline.
Delicious Fun that is no Slow Burn! West and Gigi Sizzle!
If you can’t stand the heat, then don’t read this book, because it is sizzling! Our hero and heroine are two Pastry Chefs and business owners who meet by chance, and as Barry White will tell you, they get it on. This is no slow burn. It’s insta-attraction, insta-lust, and an insta-good time! Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente teamed up once again to pen the third installment of their Good Love series, Good to Be Bad. These books are low on angst and high on steam, with plenty of witty banter and laughs in between.
From the very first chapter, I had a big giant smile on my face. I just adored how they met and were enamored with each other, especially when they discovered they’ve met their match as they both were smart as whips, loved various games, and were uber competitive.
Gigi James, owner of Sweetie Pies, isn’t sure at first if she can trust Weston “West” Byron, who along with his sister opens up a Tea Room and Sweet Shop right across the street. Her reaction to his business is amusing as our heroine can be a wound-up little spitfire, and it only escalates from there when she learns they will be pitted against each other in a professionally sponsored baking competition on live TV!
But our hero is ever so charming and easy on the eyes…how can she resist his sweet talk and dimples? And West can cook, loves his sister and brother, and is the best boyfriend ever. I swooned at his genuine affection and appreciation of her on many pages, and how he always put her first.
Gigi was eccentric and true to herself. She worked hard, was a wonderful friend, kind to others, and loved with her whole heart. She was thoughtful, loyal and generous, and I loved how she didn’t play head games. They both were honest about their feelings and their relationship was so passionate and continued to grow as they learned more and more about each other. Loved their flirty texts, too!
His friend Graham and his wife CJ have a cameo from the “V Card” which was a fun surprise, but please note that each book can be read as a total standalone. And if you love audio-books, West is British so his voice is super sexy!
