Overview

Falling for the bad boy is even more dangerous the second time around.

The McLaughlins, Book 1

In high school Sarah fell for her best friend’s older brother—one of the sexy, Scottish McLaughlin boys. But a painful betrayal showed her she’d been a fool to give her heart to a bad boy. At least it made it easier to leave him and move halfway around the world when her Navy dad got stationed in Japan.

Eleven years later, the death of her grandmother has forced Sarah back to Whidbey Island for a month. It’s the length of time she must stay in her inherited house before she’s allowed to sell it, take the money and run. But when she sees Ian, bad as ever and still looking like sin on a stick, she can’t keep her mouth from watering.

One look at Sarah stirs up the regret lingering in Ian’s heart—and never-forgotten desire lingering in his body. He should walk away, especially since divorced single mothers aren’t his style. But when she starts showing up at his family’s pub, he can’t resist a little casual seduction for old time’s sake.

One thing quickly becomes clear, though. The heat between them is causing an avalanche of secrets and betrayal and nothing will ever be the same.

Warning: A bad-boy hero who’s good with his hands, a heroine who’s trying to be good. Contains liberal consumption of Scotch whisky, a Highland Games competition, men in kilts wielding large poles, and a potential Sarah McLaughlin of the non-musical kind.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In Stevens’s new series, Sarah Rawlings is resigned to returning to the Pacific Northwest to take care of her grandmother’s estate. Although the little island in Puget Sound holds good memories of her high school years with best friend Kenzie McLaughlin, it also holds the drama surrounding Sarah’s first love, Kenzie’s brother Ian. Ian has a checkered past but has tried to move on by starting his own business. Guilt and lust twine when he sees Sarah again. Despite the decade that has gone by, he wants her. But there’s a secret Sarah holds dear, and when it’s revealed, the pain might destroy the new love Sarah and Ian have found.

Verdict Stevens (Love Me Knot; Melting Point) has written a solid and thoroughly charming romance novel. Readers will enjoy meeting the McLaughlin clan and be eager for the next series installments. For all romance fans.—Christyna Hunter, Loudoun Cty. P.L., Lovettsville, VA

    I am a huge fan of Shelli Stevens! I was so excited to read this book. Who can resist a Scottish bad boy? I loved the McLaughlin family! This definitely is the start of a terrific series. The romance between Ian and Sarah was sweet & hot! Ms. Stevens definitely does not disappoint. She's a terrific author! : )

    I have to say that I was slightly skeptical about reading this one for one reason, The Highland Games. I must say that I am very much in love with the description of the games. Brings back lots of memories for me. I was very pleased with this story and can't wait to read more. Well done. I highly recommend this book to anyone. You will fall in love with the characters just as I have.

    Charming

    Though the book was highly predictable i did enjoy it. The chemistry between the characters was light anf heavy when needed and flawless. The story itself wasnt very original but it was well written and i could see it on a screen. The imagery in itself was good too. I must say that if you are in the mood for a chaming simple love tragedy turned romantic ending then this is the story for you...never mind the sexy scenes. Enjoy!

    Oh. My. Wow! I love a series about siblings and each finding their true love. And the McLaughlins are amazing. Not only is this a wonderful story, but I am already excited about the hints of relationships coming.

    The McLaughlins include three brothers and one sister. This story was about Ian, one of the twin brothers.

    Not only do I love a sibling driven series, I am also a sucker for lost love reunited. That is what this story is about Ian and his high school sweet heart, Sarah, finding love again, eleven years after an quick and ugly break-up.

    I am a huge Shelli Stevens fan and have loved and read everything she has written. Her voice is down to earth and realistic. Her stories are amazing and keep you on the edge of your seat. Good Girl Gone Plaid is no exception. I literally could not put the book down and did I mention the surprise? Usually I can see it coming, the plot twist, but Shelli got me here. I was as surprised as the McLaughlin with the "surprise". I also enjoyed the young character, Emily. It is obvious that Shelli has had some experience raising little girls. :)

    I highly recommend this book and I cannot wait to read the next in the series.

    Sexy mechanics in kilts...yes please! I've read a few books lately where a family member passed away and left some provisions in the will that they knew would bring two people together. I always imagine that loved one sitting on a cloud just watching the events unfold and it makes me laugh. Ian and Sarah just can't seem to stay away from each other. While there wasn't a lot of conflict in this book, there was a secret and the secret was big enough to cause some serious pain to several people. I hate to giveaway the secret before you even start the book, but you will figure it out pretty quickly. There was a surprise at the end and I'm hoping we were getting a hint at the next couple for the series. I definitely recommend this book and Shelli Steven's books in general. She hasn't disappointed me yet and I don't think she ever will.

    Surprisingly Great!

    I am not much for short stories, but this one was captivating. The story was real, passionate, and true too life. But with a whole lot of romance! I am definitely buying the whole series.

    Good and funny story!

    I thought the book was funny! This young girl is looking for a job, and when a friend she knows manages to get an old taxi running, everyone is hopping in and adding to the adventure. I thing the book could have definitely used a proof reader! I hate when there are grammatical errors. The ending was far-fetched, but so was the book. I would recommend this book for enjoyment!

    Good Girl Gone Plaid is a fun modern day romance.




    The story is quite predictable. Teenage sweet hearts have a bad break up only to reunite 10 years later. 




    You've got a ton of situations that were put into the melting pot of Good Girl Gone Plaid...divorce, spouse abuse, attempted rape, hidden progeny, and a criminal element.




    I grab this book for free and found it an ok read. The sexual encounters are hot and steamy. They little girl was cute and endearing. Our couple seemed a bit immature for late 20 something adults with their incessant bickering and banter but overall it was an descent romance.

    This is the first book of the McLaughlin’s series which include three brothers and one sister.

    Sarah Rawlings having to return to the Whidbey in the Pacific Northwest after 11 years to settle her grandmother’s estate and reconnects with her best friend Kenzie McLaughlin. The only person she is trying to avoid on her stay on the island is her first love, Ian, brother to Kenzie.

    Ian McLaughlin was a bad boy when he first met Sarah. He is one of the twin brothers who now own an auto restoration shop on the island. It appears faith keeps bringing these two together, when he finds out Sarah has returned.

    It appears neither one of these two has truly has gotten over the love they have for one another. Sarah is holding onto a deep secret that could change Ian’s feelings and bring heartbreak to Sarah.

    Once the secret is revealed and other revelations are known, will these two be able to move forward and reclaim the love they had and never let go again to start a new future together.

    I am looking forward to reading the other McLaughlin’s’ stories.

    Short but ok

    It's only the first in the series so be prepared to shell out more money if you get attached to these characters. I liked it but haven't found any motivation to buy the next books. Good not great.
