Let the battle of the sexes begin...  

He's hot, wild, unpredictable, untamable, and her best friend's older brother.  

Colton Brody is everything a good girl like Phoebe Page should avoid. But since her sister Kelly's death, Phoebe isn't as worried about being good as she used to be. She wants to live big with no regrets, the way Kelly did, and she intends to start with having a top secret, super steamy, no-strings-attached holiday fling with the man she's crushed on her entire life. 

What could go wrong? 

Except everything? 

Wounded in action and discharged without a chance to prove himself, all Colton cares about is getting back into the Marine Corps where he belongs. He will not get sucked into small town drama, will not take that promotion at the firehouse, and certainly won't fall in love with his little sister's best friend. He's down for friends-with-benefits, nothing more, and plans to leave town long before quirky, bossy, cute-as-a-button Phoebe can get under his skin. 

He's in control. 

At least until a certain sexy brunette turns his world upside down. 

It isn't long before Colton finds himself buying flowers, talking feelings, and wishing Phoebe wanted more than another night of hot, no-holds-barred sex. Because when he's with Phoebe even hot and dirty feels like making love.

Now Colton will have to decide what's worth fighting for--the dreams a plane crash stole from him or the dream he's holding in his arms. 

WARNING: Good Girl vs. Bad Boy contains a mix of heart-warming romance, quirky characters, laugh out loud moments, and blisteringly hot banging. If you don't like hot sex, laughter, mentions of humping unicorns, turkey bowling, off-beat town rituals, or graphic descriptions of artisanal pancakes, steer clear.

Phoebe Page has moved home to Lover's leap Colorado and right back in close contact with her best friend's brother and her teen crush. She is literally a walking disaster and often seems to find herself in precarious situations. She's trying to live a little and start a new life in her home town.

Colton Brody is a wounded Marine vet turned firefighter who is working hard to rejoin the Corps. He's got plans and they do not involve staying home or having a relationship. But he finds a spark with her. And they are both craving a bit of sexy times, but don't want attachments..or don't think they do...

A fling...a set expiration date...no feelings...no change in their friendship or with his family....It can work, right? 

She's a good, sweet, goofy girl, but lets her wild side free with him. They share a witty rapport and humor. He's serious, focused, and likes control, but she distracts him and brings out emotions in him. He's always been a playboy and has never been the type to settle down. He lives for adrenaline and does not let anything stop him. He's got a bit of a bad boy edge, dirty talking mouth, but is finding out that he has a weakness too. 

Will they find a way to make it work or will they crash and burn?

This was a fast, sweet, funny romantic read. I laughed out loud at some of the antics and humorous situations. Phoebe and Colt were funny and likable. I could feel their connection and chemistry. I liked getting both of their points of view.

The side characters especially her friend and his sister Daisy and their brother Tucker added comic relief, ass kicking, and advice. There area  few more brother Blake and Dylan and a cousin Seth who could also be the subject of more books in this series. The brothers especially all seem to have women problems and Daisy seems to have her own issues as well.

Colton Brody is working to get back into the Marines after a major injury. Firefighting in his hometown keeps him active and in shape, but it is not his longterm dream. When he learns he could have the chance to go back to active duty, his goals focus once again. But he doesn’t plan on running into his little sister’s best friend in the short time he is back in Lover’s Leap, Colorado.

Phoebe Page had never planned to return to her hometown. But her sister’s death hit her hard, and now she plans to run the shop her sister loved and find her place at home again. She had planned to stay away from her best friend’s brother, the boy (now man) whom she had always had a crush on, but that quickly becomes difficult, especially since he always seems to be in the right place at the right time.

She knows he won’t be in town long, so what could a short term fling hurt in the long run?

A cantankerous old house, a matchmaking best friend, a nosy old lady, dirty book club, and coffin race preparation all collide to make this a humorous, entertaining read.

These two were a lot of fun to watch. Neither is quite sure what they want out of the relationship at first, and even as things start to heat up, they can’t agree on where things will end when it’s time for Colton to leave town.

I loved all the small town touches. Jessie Evans does a fantastic job of creating a small town atmosphere full of community, fun, and tradition, whether it’s in Texas and full of cowboys, or in Colorado full of tourists and snow games. The various events surrounding the town’s holiday festival made for a great backdrop for this funny tale. Everything about the festival screamed quirky small town, and made me miss the small town where I grew up (though none of those festivals were quite so colorful).

There were times when little details caught me up. Things that felt repetitive, or like I’ve seen them elsewhere. But as a whole this book had me laughing and grinning for much of the time. It was funny in an entertaining way. It never crossed the humor line into crass, keeping the humor based on situation comedy and physical bloopers. Phoebe was incredibly accident prone, but she was lucky that Colt was often there to catch her before things got ugly. A few moments had me rolling my eyes, but the laughter far outweighed the eye rolling. 

This was a nice intro to the other Brody brothers. Colton is the only one who had never had his heart broken, and from the sounds of it, the other brothers have their own stories to tell. This series promises to be filled with laughs and men with healing hearts. I can’t wait to see who catches the eye of the other Brody brothers.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Jessie Evans, gave up a career as an international woman of mystery to write the sexy, contemporary romances she loves to read.

She's married to the man of her dreams, and together they're raising a few adorable, mischievous children in a cottage in the jungle. She grew up in rural Arkansas, spending summers running wild, being chewed by chiggers, and now appreciates her home in a chigger-free part of the world even more.
When she's not writing, Jessie enjoys playing her dulcimer (badly), sewing the worlds ugliest quilts to give to her friends, going for bike rides with her house full of boys, and drifting in and out on the waves, feeling thankful for sun, surf, and lovely people to share them with.
