BOOK REVIEW - A Good Girl by Jenny Siegel

The morning after the night before, eighteen-year-old Charlie has a wicked hangover and no memory of the party. Or why there is not one, but two hot guys in bed with her. Deciding she's done her last walk of shame, college is exactly the fresh start Charlie needs. Reinventing herself as Charlotte – the good girl, she vows no more wild parties, no more one night stands, and absolutely no more bad boys.

Everything is going perfectly. That is, until she catches the eye of the lead guitarist of hottest band on campus, Dominic Hudson. With his bad boy good looks and magnetic charm he is everything Charlotte's trying hard to resist, but he's not about to take no for an answer. Instead, Dominic sets out to prove that some guys are worth the risk. But Charlie knows all about guys like Dominic, hell, she used to chew them up and spit them out, and giving into their undeniable attraction means revealing her past. A past that she's sure will send him running. 

With Dominic refusing to let her walk away, Charlie fights hard not to give into temptation, unwilling to risk losing not only her new reputation, but her heart. 

Being the good girl isn't always easy.

Review by Angie 

A Good Girl is the coming of age story of Charlie/Charlotte. She is trying to change her partying ways with a new beginning in college. Everything seems to be going as planned until she meets Dominic. They strike up a flirty friendship and it's clear that Dominic has a major attraction to her. And though she has one as well, she's not budging on the changes she wants to make.
I enjoyed the story and Charlotte intrigued me from the beginning. I wanted to understand more of what made her tick....or at least what did in the past and is making her want to change.
I also wanted to keep learning more about Dominic. Those were the two things that had me hooked.
A Good Girl is a feel good story with minimal drama and the drama that did exist wasn't over the top.
Overall its a good story even though it seemed a bit cookie cutter at times.
3.5 Stars
