I was super excited to read my first book by R. S. Grey. Make Me Bad was a fun, cute read I thought was really entertaining! 

Book Review: Make Me Bad by R. S. Grey | About That Story
Make Me Bad by R. S. Grey

A full-length STANDALONE romantic comedy from USA TODAY bestselling author R.S. Grey.

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.

3.5 out of 5 stars

How adorable and fun was this story? I had a great time reading it. Major entertainment value for sure. It was a super entertaining, light and easy read that left me smiling!

Ben was swoon-worthy and Madison is sweet and quirky. I liked their story, their flirting, Madison's challenge she presented to Ben, and the great dialogue between the two. There were a lot of funny scenes that had me laughing. I liked their chemistry, the fight to just be friends and watching it grow into more. I liked Madison stepping outside of her shell and really growing. There was nice progression throughout and I enjoyed the slow burn to their relationship.

It did take me a while to get into the story. It wasn't until about 30% that Ben and Madison were really clicking for me. The writing was good but it's not very in depth and some things felt glossed over. I personally was missing that element that really draws me in and hooks me.

If you’re looking for a fun and entertaining read that’s not too taxing, this is it!
