Blitz and Review ~~ The Good Girl by Emma Nichols

**Please note: this book is rated MA for Adult Situations and the occasional curse word

When Willow Stone discovers that she is in competition with the exotic and worldly Molina for the coveted position of sex advice columnist, she realizes it's time to up her game. Though she has impeccable writing skills, there's no denying that a lifetime of being the good girl has left her ill prepared for this position. Realizing it's her lack of experience that will keep her from achieving this dream, she decides to proposition the bad boy who once lived in her college dorm that always had a stream of women doing the walk of shame from his room on a nearly nightly basis. Surely someone that shallow, that experienced, and that wildly attractive could teach her a thing or twenty. 

Only Wyatt has his own plans, and they don't allow much time for teaching Willow what she would already know if she could just break free of the cool, calculating, proper demeanor that was part of being a Stone. His reputation has served him well through the years and being the black sheep of his family has never bothered him. What does bother him, however, is Willow. She is a mystery to unravel, a present to be cherished, a young woman who just might rock his world by bringing him back into his family's fold. She was everything they wanted for him and precisely what he had avoided since he started dating. 

What will happen when the good girl gets mixed up with the bad boy?


The premise of The Good Girl was inspired by a sexual bucket list Ms Nichols read....

and I am glad she did read it.

Willow and Wyatt could not be further apart on the sexual experience scale.   They lived in the same college dorm for a couple of years, and she was forever seeing random women do the walk of shame from his room.
Willow is no virgin (thank goodness for that, the virgin meets manwhore story is getting a bit over done!!) but she is seriously lacking in epxerience.

She has been groomed to succeed.  Nothing more. Nothing less.  And now she has her sights set on writing a column.... a sex advice column!

Wyatt is not the man she has always thought, and your heart will melt when you find out what he is really up to all along.

I loved the banter between Wyatt and Willow, especially as we learn more of how similar their upbringings are.  

It is hard with a novella to get that intense connection between characters, as everything is in fast forward mode.  However I did not feel this too much with The Good Girl (except for the ending felt a bit rushed).

It was not hard to see where the story was going to end up, but it was a fun ride getting there.  There were so laugh out loud moments, some sad moments, some moments that just put a big ol' smile on my dial.

Their exploits as Wyatt works his way through the sex lists with Willow is great.  The set up to some of them even better!  And as the book progresses, you can feel the the confusion of both our MC's as they realise that they have crossed that line from friends with benefits/experimentation only to maybe being more. 

So, does Willow get the dream job?  Will Wyatt leave as planned?  Or will his pair work things out and get their HEA?
Uh uh!  For that you are going to have to read for yourself!

I have read a few of Ms Nichol's previous works, and as with them, I very much enjoyed The Good Girl, and I look forward to reading more of her work in future.

 Oh, and make sure you do check out the Bucket List posted above. I was surprised at how many I could cross off!!
