At first when I started reading this I thought hmmm the Hilton Sisters meets Magic Mike, but that didn't stop me from getting completed sucked into this story and to realize that there was so much more to it.

This was a great suspense and the author did a fantastic job of building up to the reveal of what was what. I hated Ryan immediately and fell in love with Damian. While his career choice is not one everyone would make, he took it and made an empire out of it.

Once again, Amie has brought us another smoking hot suspense! River is quite the character. Being a successful business woman, you'd think that she would be this take charge, ain't putting up with shit kind of woman. She is in the office, but she is also shy and timid, especially when it comes to her family. River watches after her sister because she feels responsible for her. Charity went through a traumatic experience as a child and River holds herself responsible for it. So when her sister sh ...more

The synopsis gives you a great start to what is going on in this story. The GOOD GIRL meets the BAD BOY and the attraction , tension and connection is off the charts. You are eagerly waiting for them to go against all they should and go at it !! The suspense of their coming together is literally driving you crazy !! BUT on top of this there is some deep past issues for both Damien and River.

We meet River as she is running one of her father's successful companies and babysitting her little siste

This is my first introduction to Amie Nichols and it was a great way to meet. I love books where there's drama, a forbidden romance and such titillating sex my glasses are practically steaming up!

River Scott is the good girl because she feels she has to be because of an event that happened with her sister. She's smart, savvy and a great business woman and she's a go-getter when she's running her father's company. But outside of work, we get to see a side of River many don't and t

Damien Matthews had never had trouble finding women. Women have been his job for the past 15 years, so when his eyes land on River Scott, she will become one of his hardest jobs even as a retired escort.

River Scott is a successful business woman who has had an easy life or so it would seem. Her family has money but along with that comes huge responsibility. River has made herself the one in charge of keeping family secrets safe and always helping her younger sister Charity out of the f

Overall, really immature.

The novice writing was what really did in this story for me. Both in style and execution: i will never be a fan of present tense, first person writing. sorry, not sorry. I don't feel like reading what amounts to an immature, teenagers fantasy about office romance and "omg rich guys fighting over me lol". And that's what it felt like with the way it was written. The characters were silly and two-dimensional, their reactions and dialogue coming off silly more than anything

River Scott and Damian Matthews are the two main characters in this story. I am not one to go into the whole story and give all the details away because I hate spoilers, but I will give you all a little something. This is the first story that I have read by this author and I was not disappointed. She gives her characters depth and true emotions and really makes me feel as though they are people that I could easi

The Good One is good read. River is the good daughter. She is always cleaning up messing that her younger sister gets into. She is a hard worker. She wants to please everyone. Her family has secrets and she does what she has to keep them secret.

Damian is an ex male escort who now runs a male escort service. There is instant attraction between River and Damian. We don't know much about Damian at first besides that he is an ex escort so for him to be smitten with River just from the first time he

What happens when you mix a successful business woman and a retired male escort?

River is used to taking care of everyone else, but herself. Her younger sister, Charity, is a handful and keeps her on her toes. Charity requests a bachelorette party at 'MCL' and River has made it her job to do whatever her sister wants. River crosses paths with Damien, who owns MCL and is a retired escort. They both fall for each, but their relationship isn't easy. River has family obligations that may keep her fr

Get ready for one helluva ride, this book will not only have you blushing and biting your lip but holding your breath, that is how good this book is.

When Damian Matthews finds himself in front of River Scott his world will turned upside down. Never had experience this new feelings he is developing for River, being an ex-escort and male dancer he had never fallen in love but now things were different.

River Scott had the perfect family, yet the dark secrets her family

I am in love with Amie Nicholas’ The Good One. We have River Scott, she runs her rich father’s business. In addition to running the business, River looks out for and takes care of her young sister, who is a spoiled brat and always in trouble. River takes care of sister out of an obligation from something that happened long ago but that River feels was her fault. Damian Matthews is a former escort who now runs his own business of you guessed it-escorts. Once R

The Good One

This one started out great! Business executive River meets Ex Male Escort turned Business Mogul Damien. Damien was hot, sexy, and super intense. He immediately was drawn to River and was not about to lock down those feelings. The intensity to which he pursues her was scorching. However mid way thru a story I thought would be more about his past profession and the challenges River would face with her feelings for him vs a safe relationship with who her family would approve of went way

I'm in love with a stripper.... That songs been stuck in my head since Amie Nichols introduced me to Damien Matthews. Former escort turned successful businessman. He wants for nothing until he meets River Scott.
River is the good girl. Always watching over her baby sister and running her father's company. She's successful, beautiful, caring and hopelessly in love with the one man she should stay away from.
I was hooked from the first chapter and couldn't stop reading until the last page. Amie Nich

An Awesome Read!

I loved reading The Good One, all about Damien Matthews who owns the company MCL, a male escort business & River Scott the owner of Scott Industries. They met when she booked a bachelorette party for her sister Charity, at his club Strips. Ever since Damien laid eyes on River he can't get her out of his mind. Every time he runs into her he puts his foot in his mouth, and either he or she is apologizing for their bad behavior! The author wrote a very interesting story, and the cha

When you think male escorts I automatically think there is gonna be a total slut fest.... Well I am glad to say that The Good One proved me wrong.

I love a man who is mysterious and that is exactly what you get when you are introduce the the successful and well off Damian Matthews. And I love the instant spark that he felt toward River Scott.

I loved reading their journey through the book and the plot twist that are thrown into this book. Honest to goodness there were moments when my jaw dropped

This book was awesome. The first couple chapters really set the book up but the ending was not expected. The main characters seem perfect for each other then there is the rebel younger sister that comes behind you and messes up her life and tries to mess yours up as well. The book looks into secretes that are held by parents blackmail and love.

The book was well written there were no mistakes in the writing that I saw when reading it. Amie hit a home run. Once you get through the the first couple

5 Crazy Ass Stars!!!!

I really enjoyed reading this. I fell into the story right from the start and read it in one sitting. River and Damien's story was funny, emotional, intense at time, and all wrapped up in a steamy, sexy bow.

I'm looking forward to reading Brett and Josie's story when it comes out. I'll be involved in some stalking activity soon to find out when that will release.

I really enjoyed this book. I loved the story and the characters. River and Damien were good together and I liked their chemistry and relationship. It just goes to show you how money and power can corrupt some people and how it can damage those around you, it is not a guarantee of happiness. I will definitely read this author again and would recommend it.
