This good girl is ready to be bad…
He may be at a romance readers’ convention, but a naked woman in the elevator is not what horror writer Ryan Wheeler expects. Now he can’t take his eyes off of her—and not just because he saw her naked, though her luscious curves certainly aren’t helping the matter. She’s beautiful, funny, snarky…and a complication he doesn’t need.
Running into her teen heartthrob while naked wasn’t exactly part of romance novelist Andi Palmer’s weekend plans. Worse, he doesn’t recognize her and gives her a fake name. Years ago, he shot her down in the worst possible way, and now this? It’s time for a little down-and-dirty revenge.
Ryan’s more than a little turned on by this good girl who wants to be bad. But things aren’t what they seem, and the secrets they’re keeping from one another might just end this sexy little rendezvous before it ever begins…

The only way to get a teenage bad boy crush out of your dreams and head is to return that humiliation – even if that’s many years later, after you’ve long grown up. Never mind that these have been intervening years where maturity is supposed to kick in, but apparently a rejection from a crush can and will roll it all back.

Yet it’s exactly what romance author Andi Palmer does when she sees Ryan Grayson at a romance author’s convention, whom she believes is Nolan Wheeler. Except that Ryan Grayson is actually Nolan’s brother, with the same screwed up, no-commitment way of thinking and behaving.

Confusing yet? It all sounds like a very roundabout way of meeting a a teenage crush, getting revenge by getting hot between the sheets. For that reason I just couldn’t quite get into the ridiculousness of the whole affair, especially since a hot night in bed is suddenly sufficient to convince a man whose ‘sex-only rules’ that marital bliss is actually in the cards for him.

This isn’t quite the book for me, unfortunately, seeing as I spent more time trying to believe the farcical storyline than rooting for Andi/Ryan’s HEA.
