Book Info - Evangeline Harper has been everyone's good girl. But after being dumped at the altar by her fiancé, Evie decides it's time to stop playing by the rules and have some fun. There's only one problem... she doesn't know how. But one of her oldest friends, Jackson Cope, is just the man to teach her. Hotter than a Georgia tent revival in July, Jackson has had a starring role in every erotic fantasy Evie has ever had. Can she convince the local bad boy to help transform her from a slightly pudgy, former debutante into a wanton, sex kitten?

Jackson's been secretly in love with Evie since they were kids, but she was always off limits to the likes of him. Now she's offering him everything he's ever wanted, but only as friends with benefits. Planning to seduce her into his life on a permanent basis, he starts out with hot, steamy lessons on how to walk on the wild side. When Evie's former fiancé shows up, trying to woo her and her trust fund back to save his sorry hide from the Dixie Mafia, it's up to Jackson to protect her from danger. But who will protect him from a broken heart?

My Thoughts - Wow, this book was hot! The chemistry between the two main characters, Evie and Jackson, started to steam up the screen of my ereader right from the very first page and didn't stop until I had finished the book. But what I loved was the way that they had obviously known each other for a long time so, for me, this chemistry was totally believable. Their history also meant that there was a lot of tenderness between Evie and Jackson which was really sweet to read about.

When we first meet Evie she has just been left at the alter by her fiance - a man who always made Evie feel as though she's too fat/not pretty enough/not good enough for him. It was lovely to see Evie gain confidence in herself under Jackson's attentions. In contrast to her ex, Jackson believes Evie is perfect and he does all he can to prove this to her.

However, aside from the romance aspects of the book, there is also an element of action and danger introduced when Evie's ex arrives back on the scene on the run from some very dangerous men. This storyline adds a good dose of suspense which kept me hooked up until the end.

Summary - Bad Girl Lessons is very short, probably more of a novella, but it is a great way to spend a quiet evening. It is a quick fun read that has got everything a girl could need - a likeable heroine, a very sexy hero, hot romance and suspense. I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it to others.

Oh wow - now that sounds like just the ticket to get the heart racing. Her ex sounds like such an asshat and I am already a bit in love with Evie and Jackson, just from your review.

Great job Chrissie!
