More About the Author

Victoria Dahl lives with her family in a small town high in the Utah mountains. During the summer, she hikes and drinks margaritas (usually not at the same time.) During the winter she likes to curl up with a book and a cup of hot cocoa and think about all those poor, freezing skiers working so hard out in the snow. Victoria has published over eighteen books and novellas, including three USA Today bestsellers, and several of her books have been nominated for the prestigious RITA® Award for excellence in the romance genre.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
BAD BOYS DO is my favorite book of this trilogy; the other two were good reads, but this one really resonated for me. I have to say up front that some of that is personal -- Olivia really struck a nerve for me. She's a divorced academic, in an adjunct teaching position where she's underpaid and at the bottom of the college pecking order. Why? Because she was married to a full-time professor in the department, and she got rather stuck in a rut there playing second fiddle to him and his career. So yeah, been there, done that, got a whole drawer full of t-shirts; I feel Olivia, I really do. But I think most readers will feel where she's coming from, even if they haven't been there themselves, because Victoria Dahl writes her so well. It is tough starting over single when you've been part of a couple, and it's hard sticking to your resolution to get on with your life when your former spouse exploits his knowledge of you and the good aspects of your years together to try to get you back. Ahem.

Jamie Donovan, the book's hero, is a delight. He's a breath of fresh air for Olivia -- younger, full of plans and dreams, and (of course) damn sexy. Olivia is sexy too, but she doesn't realize it or celebrate it, because until now she's been a one-man woman. She gets much-needed confidence from how strongly Jamie is attracted to her, and taking the risks involved in being with him are huge growth steps for her. And she challenges Jamie, in different ways; they are good together and good for each other, and I never doubted for a minute that they belonged together.

Jamie is the misunderstood Donovan sibling. He has a party animal image and a love-'em-and-leave-'em reputation that really aren't deserved, but then he hasn't done much to counteract them, either.

4-1/2 Stars

Jamie Donovan really isn't a bad boy, but nobody wants to hear any different, especially his older brother, Eric. He's ready to grow up and be taken seriously, if only someone would listen. Jamie is sure he's found that someone in Olivia Bishop, and older divorcée who also happens to be his teacher at a summer course he is taking in order to research a business idea. Olivia's ex-husband told her she is no fun, which is unfortunately true since she put her life on hold to be a wife. Olivia is determined to regain her identity and have fun again, and who better than notorious bad boy Jamie Donovan?

There really is only one word to describe this book: fun. It was just so fun. I loved how Jamie and Olivia converse. It wasn't banter; it was conversation with humor and inside jokes. Even their romantic scenes had laughter and amusement. This book isn't filled with one liners and snark; it was filled with real life laughter.

I wasn't sure if I was going to like Olivia. We meet her as she goes to her first "Girls Night Out" after her divorce. She comes off as shy, reserved, and totally the opposite of Jamie. But, her teacher persona starts to shed as we get to know her and she starts to date Jamie. She's a bit paranoid after her divorce when she realizes that she gave up everything for her ex-husband and his likes, his wishes, and his dreams. Add to the fact that she's 5 years older than Jamie and "no fun" and she thinks dating Jamie could only be a short term thing. She's been out of the dating world, so she makes a lot of assumptions of how it all works now...which leads to some misunderstandings and funny situations.

Jamie had been portrayed as the bad boy with a revolving door on his bedroom.

Oh that Jamie Donovan. *sigh*

Here's 5 reasons why he makes me sigh:
1. He looks good in and out of a kilt.
2. He's a great instructor of fun.
3. He's good with his hands; in bed and putzing about the house.
4. For telling a joke or kissing him, first pint's half price.
5. He's charming, approachable and totally panty dropping worthy.

Previously in GOOD GIRLS DON'T, we meet Jamie Donovan who has completely screwed up. He slept with the daughter of the man that the brewery was planning on doing business with and on top of that, the woman he slept with steals the security code so her brother could break in to the brewery to steal sensitive information. Jamie has a rocky relationship with his brother Eric and still thinks of his sister, Tessa, as an innocent little girl.

All his life, he's felt like a no-good screw up and finally wants to be more than the bad boy who the ladies swoon over when he's wearing his kilt. He's ready to take on more responsibility at the brewery besides being bartender, server and 1/3 owner, and he's got a plan. A really good one. He secretly takes a class on food and beverage management to help him with his plan.

Olivia Bishop doesn't know what fun is. You wouldn't either if you were married to some stuck up tenure chasing professor. Of course, Olivia is no longer married to Victor who she walked in on going at it with a student. Yikes! She's ready to discover who the real Olivia is and well, learning to have fun with Jamie seems like a good way to start.

In exchange for Jamie teaching Olivia how to have fun, she would help him with his plan to expand the brewery into a brewpub. And cue in the bow chicka wow wow music. Insert hot for teacher joke here.
