Bad for Her (Bad Boys Gone Good #1) - Review

USA Today bestselling author Christi Barth launches a sexy new series about three bad-boy brothers in Witness Protection who are about to learn that going good is harder than they thought...

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.

Book Breakdown 

I won this book through a Goodreads Giveaway and I am so glad I did! 

I'd never heard of this author before this book and while it sounded good, I was nervous to buy it as money is hard right now and what if I didn't it? When I saw there was a giveaway, I was all over it. I was excited to win this and dived right in. It's so good! I loved that it actually had a plot, and wasn't just a romance novel. It's so much more. 

This novel follows Rafe and Mollie in duel POVs. Rafe and his brothers are in WITSEC. Why? Oh they were in the Irish mob and turned against it after the things he found out. So now they are being sent to a small town and try to blend in. They hate it, they want to go home to their big city but something or rather someone, starts to take Rafe's attention, Mollie. The town's Dr. She's smart, sweet, and she is his equal in every way. They slowly fall for each other but what about Rafe's past? Will it come back to bite him in the ass and tear him and Mollie apart?

So this was fast moving, sweet, funny, and sexy. It really had everything one could want but vampires... hey, what can I say? I'm a paranormal girl and that's what I usually lean towards. But don't even think about holding the lack of vampires against this book as it's wonderful. I hardly EVER rate a book five stars because while I enjoy books, I can usually find something that just keeps it from a 5 star rating. Not this one. Five wonderfully sexy stars. 

Grab this book and you will not regret it! I can't wait to get my hands on the next in this standalone series. I know I will love it just as much as this one.
