USA Today bestseller Christi Barth returns with another steamy Bad Boys Gone Good novel!

 Flynn Maguire isn’t really a bad guy. Sure, he worked for the mob, but he ran a legitimate business—on paper anyway—and it paid enough to keep his brother out of the lifestyle. Until they turned on him. Now he’s stuck in Witness Protection, tending bar in Nowheresville Oregon… and pissed the life he knew is gone. The only bright spot? Fantasizing about his quiet, secretive, beautiful coworker.

Sierra Williams is a woman on the run. All she wants now is to settle into small town life… and ignore the brooding, sexy bartender who can’t seem to take his eyes off her. Flynn’s bad-boy vibe pushes all her buttons, but Sierra fell for the wrong man once already. She can’t afford to let her guard down again. Except Flynn’s tough exterior is slowly melting away to reveal the sweet man beneath and their attraction is too strong to resist. Sierra and Flynn are falling fast, but they’re both keeping so many secrets. The truth could ruin everything… unless a girl who’s a little bad is perfect for a guy who’s never really been good.

I've really been enjoying this series. Yes, this is only book #2 but already I'm into the people of this small town. I truly want to know what's going on in their lives. 

When I first started this series I wasn't sure what I thought about a mob guy going good. To be honest the reason I read romance is to get away from all the crap going on in the world. But since it was a Avon release I gave it a try. 

I was very glad that I had. Loved the first book and this second one was just as good. Loved it! 

Flynn in the beginning of the series is a unhappy camper, you'll need to read it to truly understand why. It's better that way. It was almost hard at first to get to know the real him but thankfully in his book his own personality is coming out. 

He's a big ole sweetie. This is a man that makes special drinks for those he likes. Naming them after the people he created them for. He also likes to look out for the people around him, another check in the plus column. 

I also really enjoyed Sierra. She has a ton of crap in her past too. Which I think makes these two good for each other. They know how it is to work hard for themselves and know you don't always have a ton of people you can rely on, the ones you do, keep close. 

The story moves very quick and keeps up with what's going on in the main theme of this story. It does a good job of pushing it forward. 

As a whole I enjoyed the entire story but the prologue. I was kind of lost on it. I think it was because she was using they real names and I couldn't remember who was who. Other then that the story was funny, charming and romantic with a touch danger thrown in. I'd read this series in order to make and sense. Since this is only book #2 you should have a issue getting caught up. Just a heads up that book #3 is Got it Bad and it comes out September 18th! 

If you've read Never Been Good or anything else by Christie Barth I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
