This was a great quickie romance that I read in about an hours time. This is a friends to lovers romance about Drake and Natalea. They are BFFs who both have fought the attraction between them. Drake wants more, but Nat needs him as her BFF and is afraid things would change. The Misbehaved takes us to the place in their friendship where they finally cross the line. Heated, sexy and sweet I enjoyed the chemistry between them. Jayne added some suspense to this story and I enjoyed that aspect. Desp ...more

Super read! I loved this short story and would highly recommend it! It is a best friends story first, but then the friends to lovers portion is off the charts! Natalea is a tough on the outside, sweet on the inside woman. She has been forced by life to be able to take care of herself from a very young age, which she has done and done very well. She opens a bar called the Misbehaved and honors all of the other strong women in history like Annie Oakley. One constant in her life has been her best f ...more

This was a really fun friends-to-lovers story, which makes the story seem much more realistic because Natelea and Drake have known each other foreverrrrrrrr. It's obvious they have chemistry, but we get to see them as friends first before everything between them changes. And the fact that his family already adores Natelea is just another bonus. Unfortunately, there's an issue that pops up concerning Natelea's mother that adds to the drama of the story, but that is resolved somewhat quickly, and ...more

Sweet. Caring. Honest. Strong. This most certainly described Natalea. If you are looking for a good quick read. To take you mind off the day, week, month you are having. Especially if its rainy and cold where you are. I recommend that you find a comfy spot and enjoy The Misbehaved. It more than a friends to lovers.

Natalea knows she has the best thing in the world in her friendship with sexy and sin firefighter Drake Harte. She values the friendship far more than she value the crush she has harb

As usual, Jessica Jayne does not disappoint with The Misbehaved!

In this story, we meet Drake and Natalea (such a great name!), childhood friends who have remained inseparable into adulthood, and were somehow able to keep their friendship platonic. Neither of them realizing that they both actually wanted more than just friendship with each other. Natalea owns the neighborhood bar, The Misbehaved, which she named in homage of all the notorious female outlaws. Drake is a local firefighter- who all

4.5 STARS

"The Misbehaved" by Jessica Jayne is a fun, sexy read that had me wishing for more. I really, really liked our main characters - Nat and Drake. Nat loves Drake but fear of being alone holds her back from acting on it. Nat is independent and works hard to give herself all the things she never had in her life. Drake and his family are a big part of her life and her fear of messing it up holds her back from the one thing she truly desires - to be loved. Drake, super sexy firefighter, loves

I'm not the type of reader that can marathon books. I tried it once a couple years ago when I finished an entire series in a week and two seconds after I finished the last book, I realized that it just wasn't my cup of tea. That went out the window last month when I picked up two "new to me" authors, the first of which was Jessica Jayne. Right after I finished Legal Desire, I was on the hunt for something else from the author. It ended up being perfect timing because I had just downloaded The Mi ...more

What a wonderful little book. This a quick read, that
won’t keep you up all night reading to get to the end.
Because this one book you cannot put down to the
end. And what a hot and steamy story it is too. I love
how Natalea and Drake have been friends for so
long, and each loves each other only they won’t tell
the other how they feel. As for Nat she is so afraid of
losing Drake she won’t go any further than friends.
But Drake is so determined he is going to when her

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is a quick, cute and sexy read, starring a bar owner and a clothe-shedding calendar pin up firefighter. They have been best friends forever, but both hide their romantic love for each other. Then things get shaken up, and before there is time to consider what it might mean, Natalea's mother brings trouble to the bar. For a short story, there is a lot of detail and the plot flows and the outcome is taken to just the

Despite Natalea and Drake having been friends since childhood, there is an underlying chemistry between them. As much as they want to cross that line, they hold their ground because of the fear of ruining their friendship. Fortunately for them, love conquers all and their true feelings come out (and are thoroughly expressed) to one another.
Natalea is sweet, grateful and genuine. Drake is super sexy, caring and a bit Alpha. And who wouldn't love a sexy fireman throwing them over his shoulder in t

Reviews from the Heart (Kimberly Anne)
The Misbehaved was my first read by Jessica Jayne. Misbehaved is about Drake and Natalea, two lifelong friends that had feelings for each other, that were far too strong to just be friendship. I really enjoyed both characters, they were both strong and determined. Natalea owned a bar called The Misbehaved, and Drake was a local firefighter.
While the story was entertaining overall, it felt very rushed though. The first half was heavy in steamy scenes and not so much the story. While I still enjo

The only person in her family Natalea Jones has been able to rely on is herself. Her mother is a hopeless case that only turns to her when she's desperate for money. Really, if it wasn't for her best friend Drake Harte and his family, there's no telling where she would have ended up. Having been an unruly girl growing up, getting into trouble that she was lucky to get out of. Not wanting to lose her friendship with Drake, she hasn't acted on the strong feelings she has for him. But that's all ab

Are you looking for a quick, down and dirty read? Well, look no further because Jessica Jayne’s The Misbehaved is right up your alley!

This book featured strong and independent Natalea, who is our heroine. She hasn’t had an easy life and The Misbehaved is her bar, her baby. With barely any family worth speaking of, other than her bar she does have the Harte Family that claims her. And our hero is the sexy fireman Drake Harte, who happens to be Natalea’s best friend. They are both attracted to one
