Review and Giveaway: BAD BOYS DO by Victoria Dahl

118789605From NetGalley:

Just how good can a bad boy be?

Olivia Bishop is no fun. That’s what her ex-husband said. And that’s what her smart bob and glasses imply. So with her trademark determination, Olivia sets out to remake her life. She’s going to spend time with her  girlfriends and not throw it all away for some man. But when an outing with her book club leads her to a brewery taproom, the dark-haired beauty realizes that trouble—in the form of sexy Jamie Donovan—may be too tempting to avoid.

Jamie Donovan doesn’t mean to be bad. Sure, the wild streak in his wicked green eyes has lured the ladies before. Now it’s time to grow up. He’s even ready for a serious romance. But how can that be when Olivia, the only right woman he has ever met, already has him pegged as wrong?

BAD BOYS DO is the second book in the Donovan brother’s trilogy and features my favorite of the three main characters, Jamie. In the first book he is made out to be irresponsible and an outrageous flirt. He is an outrageous flirt, but isn’t irresponsible like his older brother thinks he is. Eric doesn’t give him any responsibility and yells constantly when things don’t go perfectly. (I’m hoping I like him more in his book, REAL MEN WILL.) Jamie is unhappy with his place at Donovan Bros. and wants to expand his responsibilities. Olivia teaches a class on restaurant start-up and Jamie is happy to see her again after meeting her one night at the bar. I loved the chemistry between these two. They are opposites, but perfect for each other. I loved how Jamie changes and comes into his own through the book. He learns what he wants when it comes to family and work. Olivia also goes through some changes. She becomes who she always should have been. I enjoyed every moment of this book.

  1. I cannot wait for this to come out — I’ve got it pre-ordered for my Kindle. I figure Jamie can’t be as irresponsible as his siblings think he is…and the kilt, oh the kilt kills me!

  2. I am so happy I found this site (just recently) – love to see contemp books on the sites.

    I liked you and posted what I am reading on facebook.
