About this ebook

It was only supposed to be one time.

But that red-hot one night stand from the party?

The sexy man in the suit who gave me more Os in a few hours than I've had in a year?

Turns out my charming British stranger is keeping a little secret.

He's as much of a whiz in the kitchen as he is in the bedroom and soon we'll be going head-to-head in NYC's biggest bake off.

My one-time lover is now my enemy. I vow to loathe him for all eternity, though that would be easier if I wasn't dying to get naked with him again.

But the more I learn more about my rival, the more I suspect he just might be everything I've wanted...

If only I knew how to let him in...

GOOD TO BE BAD is a sexy standalone romance in the Good Love series!

You never know how it’s going to work when two very successful authors come together to collaborate a book well all I’m going to say is Lili Valente and Lauren Blakely are perfect together and like all great writing duo’s both added something very special to Good to Be Bad. This is Weston (West) Byron, owner of a Tea Room and Gigi James, owner of Sweetie Pies story and the attraction they have for each other is pretty much instant from the moment they meet at a nerdy game night. They both only expected one night but that was never going to be enough for these two. A talented baker falls for the dirty talking English businessman but what will happen when Gigi finds out she is having fun with the enemy, when she finds out West also has some talented baking skills. The fun and games really heat up when they both enter the same dessert contest, can this couple keep their hands off each other long enough to produce a winning dessert...... I loved everything about this book, I smiled, i swooned and I giggled as I joined West and Gigi baking up some seriously hot moments. I loved the relationship Gigi shared with her Gram and I loved the relationship West had with his sister, I also have to say West melted my heart with his love for Gigi. Right now I’m off to one click the audio version of this entertaining read because I can’t wait to hear Shane East bringing this dirty talking English man to life.

GOOD TO BE BAD is the third instalment in the contemporary, adult BAD LOVE erotic romance series co-authored by Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente. This is bakery owner Gigi James and British businessman Weston ‘West’ Byron’s story line. GOOD TO BE BAD can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. We were first introduced to Gigi in book two GOOD WITH HIS HANDS. Told from dual first person perspectives (Gigi and West) GOOD TO BE BAD follows in the wake of a one-night stand between bakery owner Gigi James and British businessman Weston ‘West’ Byron, a one night stand wherein the morning after will reveal that Weston Byron is the new owner of the soon to be open “Tea and Empathy” a café in direct competition with our story line heroine, both in business and a local bake-off for bragging rights in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Weston Byron had no idea the woman with whom he spent one glorious night is the woman who would own his heart but when it is revealed that our couple are in direct competition with one another, all bets are off until neither one is able to stop the feels and emotions that continue to grow. What ensues is the building romance and relationship between West and Gigi, and the potential fall-out as sabotage and secrets threaten to destroy Gigi’s chances at winning the prize. The relationship between Gigi and West begins as a one-night stand but neither one is aware of who and what the other one represents. Believing she has been deceived, Gigi pushes West out of her life but the heart wants something more when she realizes she may have been a little too hasty and angry with her outburst and frustration. West never expected to fall to the flamboyant little baker but when the time came to prove she was worthy of his love, Gigi knew she was the grand prize winner both in her heart and life. The $ex scenes are intimate, passionate and erotic without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. We are reintroduced to Gigi’ best friend and cousin Ruby Valentine (Good With His Hands 2), as well as Gigi’s brother Harrison, and their grandmother; and Weston Byron’s sister Abby; fellow bakers Willow Thompson, and Frederick Hawley. GOOD TO BE BAD is a wonderful and enjoyable story line of family, friendships and love. The premise is entertaining and enjoyable; the romance is seductive and captivating; the characters are fun and flirty.

I love it when these two authors collaborate together, it’s an easy flow as their writing styles are so similar, it’s like it’s one and the same. This third book in the series has a slightly different feel to the others but just as satisfying to read. It’s an insta romance, without any major drama or angst, but still a lively and light love story. There are some humorous moments but I feel it is a sweet contemporary novel. I knew Gigi was going to be special, that came across from the previous book, but she was even more effervescent and vivacious and that suited West to a T. Most of the time, she had confidence in abundance which is attractive but she also had a vulnerable side from being hurt in the past that was endearing. She wasn’t a dweller but a doer and she set about to make things right when need be and she also had a fair idea what she wanted. One of those things was the delectable and fetching Englishman she met at a game night. Weston was suave and quick with his hands, yes that too, but he could finish a Rubik’s cube in under a minute! Impressive! Other things he took his time to savor. 😉 West was smart and funny, he matched Gigi’s flirty personality and had a dirty mouth that had her swooning for more. The start of the book was a little slow going, but as a consequence, it set up the deep connection this couple had from the beginning. And every day they spent together bonded them further. I’m not sure if there’s another book in this series, or if these two will write together again, but I know I’ll be reading it.
