Good Girls Don’t by Victoria Dahl – A Review
I got this book as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Victoria Dahl is really really good at many aspects of storytelling but she shines with her dialog and sex scenes. One minute she has me laughing with snappy repartee between her heroine and hero and then, before I can catch my breath, she has me panting with hot, steamy sex. Since I follow her on Twitter, more than once I felt her “Twitter” personality coming through in her heroine. Ms. Dahl seems to have so much fun with her always naughty heroines and this book continues with that theme.
The Donovan siblings lost their parents in a car accident (man, authors get rid of a lot of parents this way!) when Tessa was only 14. Her older brother, Eric, at 24 became the head of the household, responsible for raising Tessa and her other brother, Jamie. Tessa is grown woman of twenty-seven, something her older brothers can’t seem to grasp, including continuing to believe Tessa is a virgin. That fallacy sets up a nice scene between Tessa and Luke, who believes her brothers when he is told Tessa is a virgin. Truly laugh out loud funny.
This is a wonderful read, and obviously book one of a trilogy starring the Donovan siblings. Personally, I can’t wait for Bad Boys Do in September and Real Men Will in October.
