Yesterday I posted about the release of Make Me Bad. Today I have my review for this book. Thanks to the author for sending me an ARC to read and review!
I was issued a warning: stay away from Ben Rosenberg.
As Clifton Cove’s resident “king”, he thinks he’s entitled to anyone and anything.
The trouble is, I’ve spent my whole life following the rules and playing it safe. I know what it feels like to be the good girl. I’m the police chief’s daughter and a librarian—for adorable children, no less. My wardrobe consists of colorful sundresses and baggy jeans. I might as well have a Post-it stuck to my forehead that reads: Yup, she’s a virgin.
An all-nighter with a fictional hunk is about as exciting as my life gets, until one day, fate decides to take pity on me and shove me straight into the path of Mr. Off-Limits himself.
Just as I suspected, every inch of him promises to be my demise. Up close, he’s tall, menacing, dangerously handsome—the type of man who’s never spent a single moment worrying about the opinions of others. A well-behaved girl would do as she’s told and avoid him at all costs, but I’m overdue for a little rebellion.
No more Friday nights sprawled out on the couch in my comfiest pajamas. No more wishing I had the courage to misbehave.
Everyone thinks Ben is going to ruin me.
They think he’ll chew me up and spit me out.
Well, Ben…go ahead.
Tempt me. Taunt me.
Make me bad.
R.S. Grey has done it again! Make Me Bad had me laughing, swooning, smiling and loving all the romantic/sexy moments. I’ve read quite a few of her books and I think this one has now become my favorite!
Madison is such an easy character to relate to. A book lover, librarian and she’s pretty innocent. She does what is expected of her and never steps out of line. Turning 25 has made her decide she wants more wild and exciting in her life. Madison always follows the rules and living at home with her Dad basically keeps her seen as a child! I loved watching Madison change in this book. She starts standing up for herself and figuring out what she wants. Madison finally finds her naughty side!
“It’s like I’ve evolved into my final form; a big, bad butterfly.”
Ben’s family is known in town and he knows Madison shouldn’t come near him. He has a great career and no shortage of attention from women! Ben seems all tough and arrogant, but that’s definitely not the case. Behind his tough attitude is a guy who really cares. Love is scary for him though, because of certain events in his past. Ben seems to have a hard time keeping Madison out though..
I think this is my favorite way of a couple getting together. Him volunteering at her library and Madison asking for him to make her bad was hilarious. Their chemistry is so much fun and I never knew a library could be a naughty place!
Make Me Bad has a slower romance, but there are definitely fireworks. Her geeky side and his macho side are a lot of fun to read about. If you’re looking for a new romantic comedy, I definitely recommend this one! Great characters, a lot of humor, swoon-worthy moments all add up to an amazing story! I’m already looking forward to this author’s next book!
I think it’s safe to say that R.S. Grey is my favorite author to go to when I need a romantic comedy! Have you ever read any of her books? What is your favorite one?
