Overview

Book One of the New York Times & USA Today bestselling NICE GIRL TO LOVE serial romance trilogy: Abby & Connor's Story...

Abby Bartlett is the quintessential nice girl. Between teaching, volunteering, completing her PhD, and helping her best friend raise his daughter, Abby never gets the chance to be anything but nice. That is, until the all-wrong-for-her man she's only ever known from afar starts daring her to simply take that chance for herself. His sage advice? Try something wild and fast.

Preferably him.

An unbridled, hotshot attorney with a not-so-little black book, Connor Sullivan has earned himself quite the bad boy reputation. But in his defense, he's a very conscientious one. He knows far too well that sometimes in life, love isn't enough...or worse, not even a factor at all. To avoid that misery--and repel the drama--Connor always makes his one and only rule crystal clear right from the start. Absolutely nothing more than a month.

Turns out, a whole lot can happen in one month.

    Wow! This was such a good book! Super fun and sexy. I loved hot, secretly sensitive Connor and strong, feisty Abby. Their chemistry made for some intense scenes. There were parts in this book that had me laughing so hard while others had me close to tears. This was a well written storyline with fresh, witty dialog and an ending I just swooned over. Can't wait for the sequel!

    10 Star read

    As an unpologetic book aholic, I'm always on the prowl for new authors. Violet Duke get's two huge thumbs (and all my fingers plus toes) up for Abby and Duke's story. Just knowing it is the first of what will be many, many, many (PLEASE!) more stories to head my way makes me as happy as savoring my favorite dark chocolate. The dialog will keep you in stitches with heart warming humor. The characters are well defined. Note I'm not telling you about the story line, because just like biting into a lovely dark chocolate, only to find the most amazing and unexpected filling, this is a book worth the discovery. A new fav author!

    Wow! Talk about nailing it first time out of the chute. Violet

    Wow! Talk about nailing it first time out of the chute. Violet Duke's Resisting the Bad Boy placed her solidly on my list of auto-buy authors. She engages you in the first paragraph and never lets your attention stray. Her characters are lively, fun, and snappy with their banter. I found myself smiling, chuckling, and laughing out loud throughout the book. The only thing I like more in my choice of reading material is a hot, sexy scene and she deftly fills the pages with plenty of those as well. She gives us an incredibly romantic story about Connor, an emotionally shut-off bad boy who is revealed to be a good, self-sacrificing man by Abby, the good girl who brings it all out when she shows him real affection without an ulterior motive. These two well-written characters are great together and have smokin’ hot chemistry. I could offer details of so many scenes to illustrate my views but I don’t want to spoil your chance to read and enjoy it for yourself just as I did. Twice. Now I’m just waiting for the second book in this wonderful series to come out!! But in the meantime, buy this fantastic read by new author Violet Duke. You won’t be sorry!

    Enjoyed but....

    I am pretty open minded when it comes to fiction, however I found myself constantly questioning - not judging- how the elephant in the room could be so easily ignored. THEY ARE BROTHERS???? I read the first two and will read the next because the storyline has captured my interest. The books are well written but for love this strong with no animosity from either brother and not even a little moral checking from all 3 of these "good" people, I had a hard time buying it. I am hoping Ms. Duke will clear this up for me in book 3. Either way, well worth my money and time. These books would actually be a great book club selection for the debate alone. CEB...

    Good,

    I read this book in one night, I seriously couldn't put it down! I laughed out loud multiple times. Not a lot of books have the power to bring uncontrollable laughter to me. Its sweet and a little sad at times too. The main characters are so likable and witty and the conversations between them feel like REAL interactions. My only complaint is that it ended :(

    Resisting the Bad Boy is the first book in the Nice Girl to Love

    Resisting the Bad Boy is the first book in the Nice Girl to Love Series. It introduces you to Abby "the nice girl", Connor "the bad boy" and Brian "the nice guy". Connor and Brian are brothers and Abby is Brian's best friend. Abby and Connor have a romance but it only lasts one month per Connor's rules. The author leaves you with a cliffhanger at the end of the book so I recommend buying all of them at the same time! I really enjoyed this book and Violet Duke is on my must read list now!

    Violet Duke does an amazing job with character development. I fell in love with Abby and Connor. I love to see alpha males develop feelings in a love story that they do not know how to handle. I think most men have a difficult time sorting out their feelings and expressing them. Connor thinks he can walk away after 28 days and not look back just like he always has but Abby is different then other girls. She is sweet and kind and could care less about his status or money. I loved this entire series and look forward to Violets spin off series coming soon.

    Pretty good

    So many ups and downs in this story. Her best friend is a great guy but his brother appears to be the bad boy. Slowly she learns how great he is too. KD

    Zzzzzzz

    Too wordy. Conversation is way too chatty. Could not finish reading first book, made me glad I didn't buy the entire series from the get go. After going back and reading more of the reviews, I am VERY surprised so many people liked it especialy whn one reviewer revealed that Abby does both brothers, YUCK

    Review by Danielle @ Coffee and Characters Resisting the Bad Boy

    Review by Danielle @ Coffee and Characters
    Resisting the Bad Boy by Violet Duke is seriously epic. I cannot tell you how enthralled I was by this book! I was sucked into this story from the very beginning and found my heart melting at every turn though don't let that comment fool you because Resisting The Bad Boy was heartbreaking at times as well. This one really put me through the ringer! I laughed and I cried and was put through an emotional roller coaster that I wish I could ride again and again. Watched Abby and Conner develop their relationship made me want to be them! I wanted that depth of feeling! And the ending..Oh My God is all I can say. I had to dive right into book two without even waiting a day because I was so shocked. Resisting the Bad Boy is officially on my "YOU ARE CRAZY IF YOU HAVENT READ THIS YET" book list because seriously...You ARE crazy if you don't read it!! This book made be an official Violet Duke fan...she can do no wrong in my eyes.

    i liked the book. ending not so much

    This book was nice. I liked the chemistry and the down the earth attitude in life. I fell in love with both the characters. I didn't liked the end because he let her go. then I read the second series is about her dating his brother because now his brother thinks he may like her too. so I wont be reading the rest of the series. I will believe they stay together and not have to date other ppl to figure out they are right for each other.
