Book Review - Good Girls Don't by Victoria Dahl
I LOVE discovering wonderful authors that are new to me! I finished Victoria Dahl's Good Girls Don't earlier today and I am still smiling over how much I liked this book. In fact, I;'ve already gotten the second and third books in this family trilogy.
Good Girls Don't is the love story between Tessa Donovan and Luke Asher. Tessa and her two brothers, Jamie and Eric, run a family brewery together. When the brewery is broken into, Tessa meets, and is immediately attracted to Luke. He happens to be one of the detectives in charge of their break-in. He's also an old college party buddy of her brother Jamie's.
Both Tessa and Luke have serious abandonment issues but for radically different reasons. Due to said issues, both are quite afraid to leave and practically unable to trust. This doesn't stop the immediate attraction they both feel for one another, though. They begin what they both assume will be casual dating and quite a bit of lust. And almost immediately, these two stubborn and scared people begin to fall for one another.
Tessa and Luke's story is sweet, sexy and at times sad. I completely fell for these characters and Tessa's brothers, too. If you want wonderful story telling with heart and spice - pick up this book by Victoria Dahl. Oh, and I've already begun Jamie's story, Bad Boys Do.
