The Good Girl's Guide to Being Bad
Her Career Aptitude Test results say she's ideally suited for a career in the clergy (aka a nun), and on top of that, she receives yet another rejection. An aspiring dancer/choreographer, Sadie dreams of being featured on Dancer's Edge—but they say she's too sweet, needs more life experience. Her BFF, Kyle, and her ol ...more
Don't fall for his brother? Colton Bishop?...more
That was one pro
I am leaving this unrated because I'm not just interested in the story. I was looking for an enemy to lover themed book and I saw the tag for this one. I got bamboozled. They are not enemies. They are high school kids who just threw that word around. Besides, I don't really like reading about high school romance so I'm tapping out .

The Good Girl’s Guide To Being Bad was my third book by Cookie O’ Gorman and once again she didn’t disappoint me. Despite the predictable plot, I really had fun reading this book. This book is what I needed after reading lots of fantasy and sci-fi books. It was light, fun and totally entertaining. Seriously, if you haven’t read her books then you really need to check them out ...more

Sadie lives life like she was born 80. She loves ballroom dance, doesn't swear, and is hopelessly in love with her best friend Kyle. The fact that he's gay just makes it unrequited but her heart is set.... she thinks. So when her Carpe Diem list lands in the wrong hands Sadie can't stop the blush forming on her face.
Colten Freaking Bishop, Kyle's twin and the bane of her existence, decides to help "Sister Sadie" complete her Carpe Diem list. While Sadie is mortified she decides he' ...more
I'm a huge Cookie O'Gorman fan -- which says a lot because YA contemporaries are usually not my thing. But she has a great talent for writing charming, genuine characters and some pretty swoon-worthy romances that I often devour her novels in a few sittings.
This was a slower start for me; it took me a few chapters to get into it. It's the scenes C ...more
I love love this book. Cookie O'Gorman can do no wrong. I love reading her books and was excited to buy and read this book asap! I love the main characters Sadie and Colton. The author is so good at describing everything and even making kissing scenes sound so incredibly sexy and romantic. When I read the book, I tried to savor every second of it because I know it has to come to an end eventually. I love how Sadie and Colton has so much character and personality. I LOVE the ending of ...more
Where do I even start?!? Like every Cookie O’Gorman book I’ve read, The Good Girl’s Guide To Being Bad, was so easy to fall in love with! The storyline, the love interest (😍), the leading lady and the “oh-my-gosh-hold-the-phone” moments were all so spectacularly written. I couldn’t put this book down and when I did it was to drink water or eat (which I did very little of lol). This is one of those YA romances that remind you of why
Sadie is the good girl; she never really strays from the good side. She doesn’t even cuss, she’s never defied her parents. But that’s where the list begins, it's essential to open herself up to take on the challenge. So she knows what it feels like, to explore and experience all those things she’s mi ...more
This is one of those books where you yell at the characters for not seeing what you see, but you get so swept up in the story you don't mind. I felt the things the characters felt and am so, so in love with Colton. Cookie O'Gorman writes fantastic books. I highly recommend everything she has written.
“Just because your eyes are open doesn’t mean you’re awake.”
I was so sick of being the good girl.
I just didn’t know what to do about it.
It was sad fact of life, but not everyone got their happily-ever-after. Some of us just had to settle for mostly-happy-but-missing-something. But still...a girl could dream.
Colton grinned. “That’s what happens when you break the rules. Congratulations Sadie, you are officially woke.”
I read this awhile back but heck, it was a double bonus to have it in audio-the narrator was pretty darn great, btw!!! Cookie O’Gorman had done it again! I couldn’t stop reading/listening; I was eager what will happen next. It was a light and fun read for me! I keep on smiling like crazy and so many adorable moments between Colton & Sadie. This book just lift off my feet and makes me want to dance happily in the real world. Lol. I dig this story a lot! You can’t fail f ...more
