Good To Be Bad by Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente Review



* * * * * * * * * *


It was only supposed to be one time…

But that red-hot one night stand from the party?

The sexy man in the suit who gave me more Os in a few hours than I’ve had in a year?

Turns out my charming British stranger is keeping a little secret.

He’s as much of a whiz in the kitchen as he is in the bedroom and soon we’ll be going head-to-head in NYC’s biggest bake off.

My one-time lover is now my enemy. I vow to loathe him for all eternity, though that would be easier if I wasn’t dying to get naked with him again.

But the more I learn more about my rival, the more I suspect he just might be everything I’ve wanted…

If only I knew how to let him in…

GOOD TO BE BAD is a sexy standalone romance in the Good Love series!

I absolutely love Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente’s co-written novels, so I was really excited upon learning they were pairing up again on the Good Love series. Individually both of these authors have written some of my favorite romantic comedies, so I already knew that these stories would be romcom magic. Having finished the three books that have been released in this series, I can confidently say that I was not wrong. Lauren and Lili’s writing styles mesh perfectly with seamless transitioning between the two of them, resulting in a fantastically well written story. I listened to the audiobook, and Shane East and Lili Valente delivered a wonderfully charismatic, entertaining performance.

Gigi has just taken the reigns of her family’s pie shop, and she wants to preserve her family’s reputation while also to making her own mark. West is new to the area and opening a tea shop across the street from Gigi’s pie shop. I absolutely loved how they met. It was cute and fun and the chemistry was crackling from the start. West was so darn swoon-worthy, and Shane East portrayed this character perfectly. Gigi was ambitious and strong, and I loved Lili’s performance.

Good To Be Bad was another stellar collaboration from the Blakely/Valente pairing. It was romantic, lighthearted and fun, this is exactly the type of entertainment I crave from this dynamic duo of authors. The story was engaging and full of charm with endearing characters and a blisteringly sexy romance – I was there for every single word of it Five smooches from me for Good To Be Bad by Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente!
