Lissa's Review: The Good Girl's Guide to Being Bad by Cookie O'Gorman

APC PUBLISHER: Cookie O'Gorman RELEASED: april 25, 2019 GENRE: YA, romance LENGTH: FORMAT: ebook


Seventeen-year-old Sadie is tired of being a good girl.

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 oldest friend, 79-year-old Betty, agree: Sadie is in desperate need of a life makeover.

But she’ll need a coach.

Sadie doesn’t lie, cheat or steal–heck she doesn’t even curse (part of the reason she hasn’t checked off anything on her “Carpe Diem List”). Sadie doesn’t know the first thing about being bad. But Kyle’s twin brother, Colton, does. And he’s willing to teac

h Sadie on one condition: she has to do everything he says for the next month.A dazzling first kiss, two smokin’ hot brothers and a bet that changes everything. In this enemies-to-more YA romance, Sadie learns:

Breaking the rules can be fun—especially when it leads to happily-ever-after. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS

I loved this story. There’s nothing like a genuine heartfelt story. It had all those feelings that I’ve grown to love — the first realizing that maybe you’ve been crushing on the wrong guy all along. 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 missed. That’s where Colton jumps in. But that’s all your going to get from me. All the books that I’ve read of O’Gorman’s I’ve loved. It has that innocence, those first-time experiences you only got to feel as a teenager. She hits it right on the head. I laughed. I smiled and teared up in quite a few parts. It wasn’t overly cheesy or overly angsty. It was just right. The writing style gets better and better. I’ll probably gobble up every book she ever writes. Overall, Five Boundless Stars
