Overview

A sizzling new voice in erotica offers a hot debut novel of sex and suspense.

Being bad can be so good. All it takes is the right man. By day, Sandy Davis is a dedicated social worker. By night, she's found an unlikely pastime: spying on her neighbors' erotic encounters. She tells herself that it's harmless, until one night she finds herself on the receiving end of such a fantasy-and an anonymous phone call from a peeping stranger who calls himself Justice, and whispers, "You've been a bad girl." The arousing predicament turns into a sensual dance between the adventurous pair. But when a third player enters their sexy game, the fun turns to something darker and more dangerous.

I ended up having a love/hate relationship with this book. Bad Girl is a short novel about a young woman who watches her neighbors through a telescope she hides on her balcony. One day, she is caught and the rest is history. What I liked about this story? The sex scenes were pretty well written and, in the beginning, inventive. After awhile, I actually became bored with them because that was the majority of the text. I understand that it's an erotica novel, but there was hardly any pauses or breaks between each sex scene. What I didn't like about this novel? It seemed pretty unrealistic. The main character, Sandy, excuses her "late-night hobby" by saying she is just looking out for her neighbors. While that may be a good excuse, everybody can see right through it, including Zeke. When Zeke calls her out on her hobby, she reacts pretty much the way I suspect any woman would: she obeys. This created some delicious scenes. However, Zeke finds out about her hobby because he accidently sees her moving her telescope back into her house. What I find comical is that he threatens her for spying on her neighbors when he pretty much stalks Sandy after initially seeing her. Not only does he do a background check, he literally stalks her when she leaves her house to go to work or hang out with her friends. He takes mental notes of certain attributes which come in handy later after the two actually meet. That brings us to Sandy and Zeke meeting. At first, Zeke was only planning on scaring her out of her hobby and she only obeyed so she wouldn't be exposed. That escalated into amazing phone sex. Apparently, this phone sex was so awesome that the two couldn't stay away and had to meet so they could have incredible real sex. This part of the story progressed so quickly, I felt that Reynold's rushed it just to get to the sex scenes. I also felt she rushed the emotional part of their relationship. Zeke, who is keeping an eye on one of Sandy's neighbors for his job, is immediately defensive and protective of Sandy when said neighbor, who happens to be a mobster, shows interest in her. I can understand wanting to protect someone from harm, but it felt as if Zeke was more emotional involved instead of just being a good Samaritan. All in all, what little plotline there was, made the pauses in between sex scenes interesting enough. The sex scenes were creative and tasty, but actually became tedious after awhile. Not necessarily a novel to take serious, but entertaining enough.

Shy overweight social worker Sandy Davis is a peeping Thomasina who each night watched through her apartment window the sexual games of others. She rationalizes what no one knows will not harm them. That is until the phone call comes telling her she has been a BAD GIRL.----------------- Justice as he calls himself to her says he has been watching her watch others and has pictures of her performance. He blackmails into all types of masturbation. However, Justice is an undercover cop named Zeke, who just wanted Sandy to stop her voyeurism. Now as he has a dangerous gangster to catch, he needs to perform a sexual duet with Sandy.------------------ BAD GIRL is an interesting but different police procedural erotic romance. Sandy is a voyeur while Justice turns out to be one too. The story line is fast-paced especially when Justice and Sandy communicate, but the gangster subplot takes a back seat to the lust thus when Sandy is endangered by the gangster, it seems forced. Still fans who appreciate something offbeat in their erotica will want to read the tale of two voyeurs who both want much more to satiate their sexual appetite.---------------- Harriet Klausner
