Review & Giveaway Tour: How to Seduce a Bad Boy by Traci Douglass
Melody Bryant has heard it all before. Sure, she's the epitome of the stereotype for a librarian. Loves order. Loves rules and deadlines. Loves books. But what she doesn't love is still being a virgin at twenty-four. Unfortunately, the only guy she's ever been interested in turned her down flat. And then left town. Eight. Years. Ago. Ugh. Now her birthday is fast approaching and she just can't take it any longer. She's finding a guy before her birthday in five weeks or she's adopting two more cats and fully embracing becoming "the crazy cat lady." But when her latest date ends in epic failure--everyone thinks of her as the "proper librarian," she realizes what she needs is to ruin her reputation. And she knows the perfect guy to help her: the baddest bad boy in town. This Army vet won't know what hit him...
This is a first time author for me. This is a case of the title calling to me so I had to read it. When I first saw this up for review I passed on it but unfortunately or should I say, fortunately the title kept calling to me.
So I gave it a try.
I'm glad I did. I enjoy the theme of falling for the older brothers best friends because isn't that kind of what happens in life. Maybe not always the "best" friend, but one of them. Sure, it might not last or even anything come of it, but the feels are there anyway.
Since this is a new author for me I didn't know what to expect for her. I went it with open eyes and found two characters that I really enjoyed. It was fun reading how Melody worked on trying to not be such a good girl. It gave me a few chuckles.
I also liked how you realized that Adam the "bad boy" isn't as bad as you think he is. Not saying he's perfect, just not really bad. More naughty!
I will say at times the story dragged a bit for me but it did pick up so that's a plus. One other thing got in my head and it had nothing to really do with the writing or story at all. My neighbor across the street is named Adam Foster and he's about the same age as the Adam Foster in the book. How weird is that. Ha!
I'm glad I gave this one a chance. See, when a title calls to you do something about it. Read the book!
