Resisting The Bad Boy

Resisting the Bad Boy
by Violet Duke
Rating: 5/5 Stars
"A sexy, often emotional treat that will resonate with the 'nice girl' in all of us." -- Lexi Ryan, New York Times Bestselling Author

Book One of the NICE GIRL TO LOVE ( serial romance ) series

Abby Bartlett is the quintessential nice girl. Between teaching, volunteering, completing her PhD, and helping her best friend raise his daughter, Abby never gets the chance to be anything but nice. That is, until the all-wrong-for-her man she's only ever known from afar starts daring her to simply take that chance for herself. His sage advice? Try something wild and fast.

Preferably him.

An unbridled, hotshot attorney with a not-so-little black book, Connor Sullivan has earned himself quite the bad boy reputation. But in his defense, he's a very conscientious one. He knows far too well that sometimes in life, love isn't enough...or worse, not even a factor at all. To avoid that misery--and repel the drama--Connor always makes his one and only rule crystal clear right from the start. Absolutely nothing more than a month.

Turns out, a whole lot can happen in one month.

Print Length: 163 pages (Based on paperback edition, available July 2013)

Note: This is a three-book serial romance . Books Two and Three will be released this summer.
Oh, Violet!  HOW CAN YOU DO THIS TO ME!  This book. Oooh this book!  It has given me one of the worst (or best) book hangovers I’ve had in a LONG time.  This book is absolutely amazing!  I waited an extra day to write my review to ensure I wouldn’t gush, but I’m not sure that not gushing is going to be possible.  I absolutely LOVED this book and want nothing more than to read book two NOW!
Abby is so easy to relate to in her good girl sense.  She’s a selfless giver, and I couldn’t help but wish that I could be a little more like her.  The more romance I read, the more I think:  It’s impossible for any good girl to resist the bad boy.  I absolutely loved reading Abby’s attempts to resist Connor, the quintessential bad boy.
Underneath his “bad boy” behavior, it seems that Connor may be a good guy, just like Abby may be a bit of a bad girl at heart.  There were so many facets to their characters that they were truly able to sparkle in their own unique way.
The ending!  UGH!  Even with a warning directly from the author about a cliffhanger, I wasn’t expecting that.  I can’t wait to see where this story goes, but I have a feeling no matter what the next story entails, I’ll be Team Connor all the way!
I definitely recommend this book to any romance readers.  This is a story that all should read!  I promise, you’ll be hooked.  <3 p="">
