Review: Once Upon a Bad Boy by Melonie Johnson

Sadie Gold is ready to take her career to the next level with the role of a lifetime. Finally, she can shake her reputation as a pretty face with more wealth and connections than talent. But Sadie is not prepared for the wild turn her own life is about to take. The man in charge of training Sadie for her most demanding role yet is none other than her first real boyfriend—the one who took her heart and ran away.

Bo Ibarra is as good-looking and irresistible as ever. Maybe even more so, now that everything once worked against them—Sadie’s pampered and privileged upbringing and Bo’s childhood in a family struggling to make ends meet—is in the past. But the future is still unwritten…and getting there, together, means coming clean about painful secrets and slashing through nasty tabloid rumors while trying to control the attraction that crackles between them. Maybe it’s finally time for them to walk off into the sunset and into a true and lasting love?

If you haven't been reading this series by Melonie Johnson I'm not sure why. Her characters are fun, loving and just plain make me laugh. I just love reading about them. Once Upon a Bad Boy is the third book in her Sometimes in Love series. So far, each book has rocked. I'm hoping the series continues this way. 

Up this time you have Sadie. You met her in the first book and got to know her a tiny bit more in the second book. You really learn about her in her own book. You see what is under the layers of bravo. She becomes a more real person and less actor for me in this book. I saw that there is more to Sadie than what meets the eye. 

I'm not a huge fan of second chance romances. It's very been there...done that, for me. If I'm going to read them then I like the ones when they are kids. Sure they were legal adults but we all know they are still kids. 

I liked Bo. He is a great character. You want to know more about him and his thoughts. He pulls you in. I really like him for Sadie. They work even if it took them a while to realize it. 

You right off the bat know why or how come it didn't work. They weren't ready for it to work. They both needed some growing up to do. I do feel slightly lost like I was missing something about their past but I'm not sure if it was me or the book. I have a nosy issue. Why do you think I read books? It's like being in the restaurant and hearing the whispered argument and not knowing what they are saying. In books, you know! 

As always you will love the humor and friendship in Johnson's books. It's one of the things that draws me to them. This has been a fun series and I can't wait for more. Have any of you read her yet? 


  1. I haven't read this author but this does sound like a book that I would like.
