Not my favourite, unfortunately this book did not much for me at all. The characters were not the sort I could connect to and then all the fade to black sex scenes.... argh! I am sorry I like my stories with a bit more umph.
Anyway sadly I got to the point where I just couldn't continue, too many books and not enough time and all that.

The heroine, Indy, has a lot of TSTL moments that make me not care for her. Example? Indy is a real estate agent during the day and a server at a bar in the evening. She's waiting for that large commission to get her career going. She has an opportunity with Griffin, a millionaire, who hired her as a favor for his best friend. For their first meeting, she shows up late a ...more
Griffin is a straight forward, straight up guy, who wants Indy. Simple.
Indy is a big ole hot mess, who is involved with a soon-to-be divorced man, works part time as temporary jobs, and has never finished one of the degrees she started.
The love story is unconventional at best: a one night stand with two hot people doing it up against the wall, in the hall and don’t you dare fall!
Fall in love that is! Neither Griffin nor Indy is big on commitment. No surpr ...more
"Don't judge a book by it's cover." I've heard that adage so much, it's almost cliche, but the best cliches have a hint of truth to them.

Griffin and Indy think with their hearts and many a time that has not proved wise. When the time comes for them to chose between what they want and what others say, will each have the courage to make the right choice? Shannyn Sc ...more

***This review may contain some spoilers. I try to write spoiler free reviews, but I found it difficult to write an accurate review without revealing some info that might be considered "spoilery."
This is the second book I've read by this author, and I think that although this story is a bit more far-fetched than the last, the pace and writing have gotten better.
When Griffin hires Indy to be his real estate agent, the two are already acquainted. Griffin's best friend is marrying In ...more

Indy, a lady who seemed one who took no instructions was trapped with a guy who's manipulative. I was glad that her character evolved or should I say that it was a hidden strength to made her decide what's best for herself.

This was the second book about the O'Leary family and continues the story of Ryan and Quinn with the book centering on Quinn's sister Indy and Ryan's friend Griffin.
Griffin is a very wealthy man who has his own company that designs video games. His PR girl decides he needs to change his image, since parents are not happy with the new release his company has coming out. She wants him to find a home and leave the bachelor pad behind.
Overall the characters in the book were likable, I liked Griffin, millionaire video game creator a bit more, even though we didn't really know much about him until the last half of the book. He had a great heart who helped trouble teens find an outlet, rather than go down the wrong path.

I enjoyed A Good Time because although it was a contemporary romance and Shannyn Schroeder used some of the basic elements of the traditional plot she added plenty of her own quirks to keep the story interesting and exciting for her reader. I particularly liked Indy's character and the way in which she refused to be tamed by a man, needing her own independence, ...more
