From Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestseller Vivian Wood

Cynic. F*ck up. Outsider.
That’s Jameson in a nutshell - not to mention drool-worthy, dreamy, and perfect fantasy object.

He’s also my older brother’s best friend and business partner.

I’ve had a thing for Jameson ever since I was old enough to have dirty dreams. My brother has made it crystal clear that if he

3.5 Must Be Bad to Get to the Good Stars

Vivian Woods likes to play with her readers, I am learning. She is new to me and I am seeing how she does her series. She has all the plot points mapped well and creates these interwoven families and friends.


The base of this new venture is the bar, Cure. This is a business co owned by Jamison, resident bad boy and Asher, his best friend and wealthy society fella. These two became best friends for life when Jamison save

It’s tiresome or disappointing or boring or unenthusiastic, I am not even sure what word to describe the annoyance it is to read the same blurb so many times for so many different authors.
Big brother’s best friend out of limits. How many more times?! 🙄🙄🙄🙄

Bad Behavior is Emma & Jameson's story. Emma is the forbidden baby sister of his best friend, Archer.

Not just best friend, more like family. Archer has been there for Jameson for about 20 years, he's saved him and his brothers, Gunner & Forrest, more times than he can count. Which is why Jameson has to abide by the rules set by Asher, the Emma is "off limits" rule.

Emma is tired of being looked at like she's a kid, and she's had her sight set on Jameson for years. She's thinking now is t

In the prequel we were introduced to 3 brothers Jameson, Forrest & Gunnar who have not had an easy life. We are also introduced to Asher, Jameson's best friend, and his sister Emma. They have led a privileged life.

Jameson & Asher have been best friends since they were in mid-school. Jameson & his brothers live with his grandmother, however, he is now responsible and taking care of his brothers. Trying to move around enough that the foster care system can never catch up with them to

So i enjoyed this book, but there was some parts I really didn't like :-(

So in the prequel to this one we meet the characters, Jameson, Asher and Emma and how they are connected. Asher and Emma are brother and sister, and they are rich. Didn't want for anything and had everything they could ever want. Jameson on the other hand was the not so rich one. His parents left when he was 14 and they went to stay with his grandmother and then she died when he was 16 and he quit school to look a

Vivian Freaking loved it, Check out The prequel, BAD BEGINNINGS gives you a snippet of were it all starts and its (FREE). This is Jameson and Emma's story. They have great banter back and forth plus there is some much twists and turns that have you turn over to see what happen next. OMG they have chemistry that off the charts even though Emma is off limiteds to Jameson or anybody by order of Asher who is Emma's brother. Want more well you just have to grab it on release day.

That was my reaction after the last sentence.
I told Vivian when she asked her readers about breaking it up into 2 parts that I would LOVE/hate it.
And that is exactly what has happened!
Im at a loss for words to describe how much i love this book. All of the characters are written perfectly. As Im reading, im trying to peice everything together while not trying to think too much because i know it will be a little bit before i find out what happens next.

A boy with a rough beginning falling in love with the one girl he can't have. Jameson is the outsider, from the wrong side of the tracks, high school dropout to keep his family together. Emma is a princess, with an over protective brother and with uptight parents. Jameson is best friends with Asher, Emma's big brother, Asher is the only ...more

Bad Behavior by Vivian Wood is an entertaining book that will have you hooked from the first words until the last. The plot is engaging, well written and the characters so well written that a connection is almost instantly formed. Once you start reading this book, it's practically impossible to put it down. In what can be considered a monotonous world of romance, Vivian Wood brings a fresh, gripping, up beat and at times heartwrenching perspective that is reinvigorating and exhilarating.

I'm not sure how I feel about this story – when I finished it I wasn’t a big fan. But still something about this story has me really excited to read the sequel. It’s strange how much I like forbidden love. It always get’s my blood rolling. I like that it was Emma who had to push a bit for Jameson to finally admit he has a thing for her. But it broke my heart the way he ended things – NOT COOL man. But I get where he’s coming from and why he did that. I'm hoping the author can redeem Jameson

OMG. Bad Behavior had me HOOKED! While left on a cliffhanger, it's angsty and sexy, and totally addictive.

A sexy forbidden attraction is the main focus of Bad Behavior. Jameson is attracted to Emma, who happens to be his best friends younger sister, and clearly labeled DO NOT TOUCH by her brother. Jameson has been battered by life, the one good constant being his friendship with Asher. He's loyal to a fault. Emma is a stubborn one. She goes after what she wants, and Jameson holds strong. Their

Any author who can combine three clichéd tropes and make me forget about them completely through quality writing, engaging characters and a riveting storyline certainly earns a measure of respect from me. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that this book isn’t titled “My Best Friend's Much Younger, Virginal Sister.” However, I should be really ticked off with Ms. Wood for not only leaving us hanging (yes, on the edge a great big cliff!) but hitting us with a pretty shocking development at the end of “Ba ...more

I was hooked when I read the prequel, Bad Behavior. And this story did not disappoint. If you haven't read the prequel stop reading this review now and go read it. It's a short read and worth it. Then you will be ready to jump into this book.
This story starts off where the prequel left us, Jameson and his friend Asher aren't talking. Asher thinks he walked in on Jameson kissing his fiance Jenna but it was Jenna who kissed Jameson. So as if that isn't enough for Jameson to deal with, Asher's sist

Jameson and Asher come from two different sides of the track. Jameson was abandoned by drug addicts for parents and he dropped out of high school to take care of his little brothers. I don't care if he doesn't have an education I just swooned at the thought of him stepping up like a man. Asher grew up in the more richer part of town, he was bound for higher education along with a sizeable trust fund. I don't care if he is a trust fund baby he is a cutie pie and the fact that he has stuck by Jame ...more

If you haven’t read the prequel to this book I highly suggest it to get a bit of background on the characters. It isn’t necessary, but it is free so why not check it out 😊. As for Bad Behavior, this is the first story in a duet, but the conclusion should be following the release of this book shortly. This book tells the tale of Jameson, a boy from the wrong side of the tracks who had to shoulder more than his fair share of responsibility at a young age by raising his two younger brothers.

Jameson was working at a bar he co-owned with his best friend Asher and his two younger brothers.

To Jameson, Emma is definitely off limits! So grab the prequel – it introduces everyone.

Jameson and Emma. The attraction is hot and intense, and forbidden by her brother, his best friend.

Holy sheee-it! I loved what was going on it Jameson’s head! He’s doing his best to be loyal to his friend Asher, who has forbidden him to date Emma, but damn, at 24, she’s not making things easy for him. She’s tenacious, goal-driven, and she’s had a crush on him for almost 10 years, so when she set her sights on

This is an amazing and beautiful love story that was so well done; it held my attention and was entertaining, but also was heartwarming, full of emotional angst, scorching love scenes, and a compelling storyline.

Bad Behavior...Indeed!!

I'm giving this book 3.5 stars for our heroine, Emma:

"Then I guess it's a good thing that I don't live to please Asher."

I'm so over parents, siblings/best friends, etc., trying to dictate what others do, or who they do it with! You gotta love Emma's gumption though. She's had a crush on her older brother Asher's best friend, Jameson since her teens. Now that she's a 24-year old law student, she decides that she's going after him with all that's within her.

There’s a prequel to this book called Bad Beginnings and we get a little insight on the characters of this story. It’s free on amazon and totally worth the brief read.

Asher and Jameson are best friends and have been since they were 11. At Asher’s engagement party he has a bright idea to open a bar with Jameson called Cure and that’s why the story begin and takes you for a naughty ride.

Bad Behavior is loosely based on characters Jameson and Emma. Jameson, sexy bad boy. High school drop out, rai

Ok. I was on vacation when this book came out and although I did finish at that time I could not post on here until now. While reading this book, I was on a roller coaster of emotions. I mean I was laughing, I was grimacing and most of all, I was getting very pissed off at Jameson. Don't worry. Its one of those books where you want to smack some sense into him but at the same

This is the first book in the Bad Behaviour duet, although there is a prequel – Bad Beginnings that needs to be read first and I'm not sure why this wasn’t just included in the first book?

Asher and Jameson have been best friends since they were teenagers. Asher is from a rich family whereas Jameson has always had to struggle, especially since he had to bring up his brothers from a young age. However the two have always been close despite their differences. Being adults they now find pressures th
