Toe Curling, Leg Crossing, and Lip Biting HOT!

Wow! I absolutely loved this book. Captured immediately to Evie's character as she deals with being left at the alter on her wedding day. I think there is a little Evie in all of us at times weather we realize it or not. As a reader I totally connected with the reality of her feelings and of her self conscious doubts towards the inner self. We all deep down worry about our looks, our weight and size, and acceptance from society. The author did an exc

Bad Girl Lessons is an erotic romantic suspense novella by Seraphina Donavan. It's not only a story about walking on the wild side but also one of self discovery.

Evie was sick of being a good girl. Where had it gotten her? Left at the alter that's where. So now it was time for a change. Maybe if she learned to be bad she'd finally have a chance to be happy.

Jackson Cope was floored when Evie asked him for "bad girl lessons". He'd been seriously smitten with her for years. Would

Jackson finally gets the break he needs, he's been secretly in love with Evie since

For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review..

Okay, I have posted my warning... and to reinforce my war

I really can't complain about a free book but I will say this was many extremes. Jackson extremely loved her since they were 14 but his cousin stole her from under his nose. Evie was extemely the good girl and wasted no time in letting Jackson teach her how to be bad, once her fiance left her at the alter. Her fiance was extremely selfish and it turned out kind of crazy too! The ending was extremely eventful: mafia, kidnapping, ransom, a rescue, someone gets shot and almost dies....I almost coul ...more

Where does a good girl go, when she wants lessons in taking a walk on the wild side? She goes looking for a bad boy to give her Bad Girl Lessons.

It's not just an idea, it's the title of a fun, sexy romp by Seraphina Donovan.

Evangeline Harper has already picked out the bad boy she wants to be her teacher. It's the bad boy she's always wanted, Jackson Cope.

Jackson is the local heartthrob. Local football hero, and grown-up bad boy. Jackson's always been her Ev

If you're going to break all the rules, I guess going with the local "sexpert" is your best bet! Hee! That's right! Evie decides to indulge her inner bad girl and let Jackson show her how to set the town gossips on their ear. From some light bondage to sex in a public (yet secluded) field, Jackson knows how to give Evie what she wants.

But it's not all sexy shenanigans! Evie's mother is overbearing and more worried about her social standing than about how Evie was just left at the alter. Evie's e
Jackson Cope was a bad boy, a bad boy that had loved Evie since he was 14 years old, yet she'd never known how he felt because his suave, snake in the grass cousin has swooped in and stolen her heart, so he'd come to terms with it and kept his distance.

Evie was taught to always do the right thing, say the right thing, and to marry the right man... she thought her future was pretty much mapped out, until she's left at the altar on her wedding day.

So what does an Oh, so good girl do on a swelterin

Okay Girls, by the time you finish this story you will want a Jackson to put on your shelf. All I can say is Evie is one lucky girl to be loved so good. These two were childhood friends that lost their way do to a meddling family & a community that labeled people without knowing the facts. So, when Evie gets dumped by Jackson's cousin (weird yes) she goes to the only person who never labeled her the "good fat girl." You got it Jackson. Watch this romantic, erotic, & funny but real (as fa ...more

Love the theme good girl trying to be bad, love the theme friends to lovers, love the theme lothario finally getting the girl of his dreams, so BAD GIRL LESSONS was just an absolute treat for me.

I wish we could have gotten a little more background into Jackson’s background, it seemed as though we really only got to delve into Evie during the story so I felt a bit cheated. I really felt like there was a lot more to Jackson

Slight Spoilers

Bad Girl Lessons by Seraphina Donovan is the first book in a two part series called Gresham County. The premise to this story was good; longtime friends who had secret feeling for one another finally get together - I'm a sucker for that type of story, so of course I had to read this book.

It was a decent read. It went the way I expected it to. Unfortunately, it didn't "wow" me. There were a ton of grammatical/spelling errors, and that's a big no-no for me. I can ignore one or two,

I enjoyed the walk on the wild side that Evangeline took with Jackson. I loved the way the story kicked off and her sitting on the dock and his plan that i haphazardliy put together as they went along. The characters were well developed and i like how the past was eased in places along the story to explain Evangeline's behavior or feelings towards Jackson. It would make us all want a little help to walk on the wild side. Great story.

short and sweet!
I liked the independently wealthy his own words. The h and H in this book were cute together. The build up for this story was not extensive but then it is a very predictable story. The whole gunfight-mafia thing at the end seemed tacked on....this is no romantic suspense book. But for a short read about two sweet people who realize their feelings for one another, a pleasant book.

This is a fun story with interesting, realistic characters. It starts off with a spark and just keeps getting sparkier! I'd categorize it as excellent erotic romance. I enjoyed it and would recommend it to others.

A nice short read. I recommend it to those who like short story romances with erotica and a bit of drama thrown in.
Kindle freebie. A really good freebie. Short, but with some good plot and even some decent suspense.
