Bad For Her 

Bad For Her (Bad Boys Gone Good #1) by Christi Barth 


Doctor Mollie Vickers loves the tight-knit community of her tiny Oregon town. But she’s not a fan of the limited dating options. Sleep with a guy who tried to copy off her in junior high? Pass. Mollie’s sex life is flatlining… until a deliciously handsome man she’s never seen before stops to help her fix a flat tire.

As an ex-mobster, Rafe Maguire’s no saint. But he’s trying to turn over a new leaf. Although he probably shouldn’t kiss the hot doctor on the side of the highway. Or suggest a no-strings fling with a woman he has no business pursuing. Rafe’s life is too complicated for love—his new WITSEC-provided identity doesn’t fit him at all and there’s a U.S. Marshal watching his every move. He can’t tell Mollie the truth… but their chemistry is scorching and being good doesn’t mean he can’t be a little bad.

Mollie can’t resist the guy who looks rough, talks tough, and is loyal to the bone. But it’s obvious Rafe is keeping secrets. When the truth comes out, Mollie must decide if she could ever love an ex-mobster… or if this bad boy has truly gone good.


4 out of 5 stars

This was so fun and flirty! It was such a sweet romance and so incredibly entertaining. I enjoyed it all.

Rafe and Mollie were wonderful. I loved their first meeting, they had some great flirting happening and instant chemistry. Lust at first site! I loved that they embraced the flirty, it was just outright fun. They're in an interesting situation because of Rafe history so it made them getting to know one another interesting. I loved really getting to see who Rafe was as a man and who he was becoming. Mollie was so sweet and caring. She accepted unconditionally and was so positive. I loved them getting to know one another and watching their heat build as the flirting turns to more. I really liked Rafe's fight to keep his secret and be himself in the midst of opening up to Mollie. It was such a unique and fresh twist in getting to know someone.

I loved the storyline and Rafe’s battle to be the man he truly was meant to be in spite of his past. We get enough details about his past life to get a feel of who he was and what he's done but it's really about who he is now and the type of man he can become. The writing was really good, it was laid out well, I liked the development and there was a good pace. Nice details and descriptions though I found certain facts to be very repetitive. I loved that the story was told from dual POVs as well.

There was a great cast of secondary characters and I thought they really helped to enhance the story. Rafe’s brothers were awesome and I loved their bonding and ribbing with one another. I loved Mick, he was a great addition and Mollie's grandmother was a blast.

The story is pretty light for the most part but there's a bit of conflict and drama that kept things exciting. Honestly it was just entertaining and sweet with a nice amount of flirty and sexy mixed in. I thought it was a great introduction to a new series and I'm definitely looking forward to more. All in all though, the story was awesome, the characters were likable, it was super entertaining to read and I enjoyed it all.

Complimentary copy received for honest review.
