I killed a man. Stabbed him in the neck and licked the blood off my lips after I did it.
~PRAISE FOR THE NOVEL~
Author Lee Piper – “So yeah, Good Gone Bad is hot AF. But it’s also more than that. It’s layered, multifaceted, and above all, beautifully written.”
Musings of the Modern Belle – “Good Gone Bad is not just a super steamy romance, it is not just a suspenseful story about taking down a corrupt MC, it is a reflection of how humans aren’t just good or bad. It is a look at how we are both, how we can find our match in another, someone who just inherently gets you. It is about living wild and free while still having limits and being able to surrender and submit for those you love. It is an epic ride I implore you to take. Giana and Danner and Rosie won’t let you down.”
Author R. Scarlett – “I am so so in love with this book and Giana’s talent for creating addicting stories and beautiful complex characters.”
I didn’t like the set up with the other women stuff. I feel like this is me being super picky, but it was in my face a bit too much and bothered me. I wasn’t a fan that Larkin was Harleigh Rose’s friend and had been banging Danner while he was undercover, and that he had to continue pretending that she was his old lady, which meant having her sit on his lap and kissing her in front of others. Not to mention on top of that he was also banging a cop for two years. I am not even sure what the point was with this since it added NOTHING at all to the story and literally went NOWHERE. I am not sure why the author felt Danner needed to be romantically involved with TWO different OW. It was just a bit too much for me and lessened my enjoyment of both the story and Danner as a hero (especially with the douchey way he ended things with the cop). On top of that, I wasn’t a huge fan of the flashbacks. There wasn’t too many of them, but they weirded me out a bit because in most of them Harleigh Rose is super young. So we would get a flashback scene between her and Danner (who is ten years older than her), then move to the present where they would be having kinky ass sex. It was a bit…I don’t know…creepy? Weird? Jarring?
In any case, as I said, it wasn’t a bad book, I think my mood played a major role in my feelings about this one for sure. So do keep that in mind when deciding if you want to read this one or not.
