Overview

Good Girl by Jana Aston

I've always been a good girl.
I work hard, I follow the rules, I always achieve my goals.

But sometimes good girls want things that aren't good for them.
Or someone who isn't good for them.
Like their new boss.

And sometimes they do very bad things to get his attention.
Like sell their virginity in an auction.

Who knew he'd be so very, very mad about it?
Maybe this was not my best laid plan...

Good Girl - So Good! I think I’m kinda in love with a Good Girl! Lydia is funny and quirky and amazing. Rhys never even has a chance against her awesomeness! And I SO want more of EVERY supporting character!! Give me more!!! I don’t know when I’ve just completely enjoyed a book so much! “I thought if he just gave me a chance he might like me in a several-months kind of way instead of a two-day-shipping kind of way. That was the plan after all. Sorta the plan. Falling in love with him was not the plan.” -More than 5 Stars!-

I actually had to stop reading because Lydia’s rants annoyed me so much.

I realize the previously review said Lydia was a little naive for a 22 year old, but I don't see her as naive. I know it is hard to believe in 2018 you would find this type of girl but they do exist but I would call them endangered species. She is refreshing to read obviously not letting life get her jaded about things that make her happy in life. Rhys was jaded enough for both. I think that is why he found Lydia so interesting and he wanted to understand how she ticked. This was a really great romantic comedy but with a lot of spice thrown in to make you feel what each character felt about each other. That is what a romantic comedy should be about "the romance". Jana I think you pulled that off in spades with this book. You don't have to believe the same way Lydia did, but you do need to remind yourself you were naive once too. Buy this if you want to relax and feel good feelings at the end, that is a what a good book does for you. Makes you feel something!

4+ “Let’s do the sex now” Stars There’s something about Ms. Aston’s writing style that just does it for me. When a Good Girl goes all naughty inside, you know you’re in for a treat. Lydia is fresh out of college and along with her best friend (whose story I expect to read real soon) has landed a great job in a new casino/hotel in Vegas. A rule follower by nature, she hasn’t had the time nor the inclination to foray into the whole sex thing. Set on changing all this now that she is ready to start her adult life, she shares a kiss with a hot stranger in a bar (prodded by her best friend). When hot bar guy turns out to be the general manager of her place of employment aka her boss’s boss’s boss… well, there’s no law that says she can’t lust after him still, is there? I absolutely adored Lydia, most of the time. Her thought process was totally hilarious and she could go on completely absurd tangents, though sometimes it was too much even for me. Fortunately, this was not all the time, and the fun I had with her overshadowed any annoyance. She was sweet, caring and hard-working. Probably a bit on the naïve side, but I could actually relate to that. I just outright liked Lydia and her peculiar approach to getting Rhys attention. I loved how Rhys couldn’t help himself but be charmed by Lydia. And even though he was a total bobblehead about his feelings and how he pursued her, he was totally adorkable, and they were more than cute together. Also, he really knew his stuff and that made him hotter. I don’t particularly like my heroes doing the whole “I’m not worthy of her” or the “I’m too old for her” (Though have you noticed that all of Ms. Aston’s books are about olderish men? Which is not a complaint, I love it) so this meant it took a bit of the enjoyment of the story for me. Having read Good Thing, although the stories loosely intersect, both can be read as standalones. That said, I wouldn’t deprive myself from reading either. With awesome chemistry, interesting side characters I want to know more of, laugh-my-butt-off humor, and plenty of hot shenanigans, Good Girl was as entertaining as it was sexy. Can we push up the next one, please?

Absolutely loved Rhys and Lydia!! I have read and reread Right, Wrong, Fling and Trust...this actually had me laughing out loud. It would have been amazing if Rhys actually did some girl scout badges, but overall a good read. Good Job Jana!

This one was okay. Her other books were really good, it may have just been me, but Lydia seemed to act way younger then 22 yrs. old. Yes, I get she is a virgin, but at times her thinking was just a bit too naive in this day in age. For me, it made her character hard to believe, an to enjoy in the story fully, compared to her other books. With that said, it did have its cute parts. Peyton, her friend, is a crack up. Rhys and Lydia were cute together, and his friends were rather funny too. It is 207 nook pages filled with steamy loving, a very, very naive girl, a little conflict, but over all an okay story.****

I'm so glad I found Jana? I have devoured every one of her books and I can't wait for the next one. Once I start reading one of them I can't put it down. I love the humor, the chemistry she creates between the main characters, and the sex. She is a gem who is providing a fresh approach to romance novels. Please keep them coming!

*4.5 Stars* Y'all! Ms. Aston does endearingly awkward so well! Good Girl was hilarious but also sweet, heartwarming, and so utterly entertaining! I loved every minute! *** Lydia and Rhys' first meeting goes down as one of the best I've read - in the comedic category anyway. Lydia is a recent college grad and she's smart, quirky, and a little socially challenged. She and her BF/roommate, Payton, moved to Vegas to work at a new casino. One night, after Payton tricks Lydia into going to dinner only to take her to a bar, she sets eyes on Rhys. Things get very interesting from there. Rhys is a guy who thinks he's in touch with his feelings - thinking he has none - but is so clueless as to be ridiculous. It's the only area where he is though. He's handsome, wealthy, about to open a casino in hopes of making a name for himself within his family - oh, and he only does one-night stands...until he meets Lydia and she challenges everything. These two together are magic...and awkward moments...and passion...and humor. I don't know that I've ever laughed so hard at a book than I did at a particular scene in this one. I was grateful it was only my cats who witnessed i. But seriously, Lydia and Rhys are able to teach one another quite a bit about love and what it means to have a committed relationship. And while it took Rhys a little time to get it all together, he showed glimpses of the gem he was underneath. And Lydia - well, Rhys brought out a different kind of passion in her. They each uncovered the whole person in each other. It was honest, genuine, and on occasion, giggle-inducing. Ms. Aston's supporting cast rocked as well. t seems we'll be seeing Lydia's BF/roommate Payton next and that promises uproarious antics. But I also hope Canon, a friend of Rhys', gets a story, too. *hint*hint* It's been a hot second since I last read something from Ms. Aston. I've missed her but Good Girl was worth the wait.

My stomach still hurts from laughing so hard! Lydia is one Crazy Virgin Nerdy girl that will have you totally being team V! Rhys is such a manwhore who as soon as he meets Lydia, her type of crazy brings out a side of him he never thought could be possible. These two together are perfect. And the sexy times in this book were off the charts hot! This book is told in dual Point of views so you get an equal amount of Lydia & Rhys's thinking. Lydia's crazy best friend Payton had me rolling. I thought Lydia was funny but Payton is her twin when it comes to outrageous ideas. I am looking forward to Payton book. I know it will be soo good. Seriously after reading this book I want to go to a Goodwill store, eat some Del Taco & watch tons of HGTV & find me a Rhys!

Jana Aston is a comedic genius! She should write for television, but of course, it would have to be for cable since she has such a naughty mind. Ms. Aston’s latest novel, Good Girl, is a seriously funny romantic comedy. The story is well paced. The plot is straight forward and easy to follow. There is no real angst, and the humor is over-the-top. I was literally laughing out loud at Lydia’s antics and Payton’s creatively mixed up phraseology. Lydia is the perfect nerd. The former Girl Trooper is a total “good girl”. Her innocence and enthusiasm are adorable attributes. Her best friend Payton, is not quite so innocent, but she is 100% a loyal friend with the best of intentions when it comes to her gal pal, Lydia’s interest in Rhys, her swoon new boss. Ms. Aston has made it chic to be a virgin who holds out for someone worthy. her quirky sense of humor shines through her characters and their wacky predicaments. I fell for all the characters in Good Girl, but recent-college-graduate, Lydia is one of my all time favorites. Good Girl is a feel-good, laugh-out-loud read that left a smile on my face. I got my reading badge, and now I’m working on my bug-the-author-for-more-books-about-these-characters badge.

This book is AWESOME!! Lydia is a 22 year old virgin straight out of college and starting her first post graduate job at the Windsor hotel and casino. She and her best friend/roommate go to a bar to have a drink after moving to Vegas. At the bar, Lydia gets a unforgettable kiss from a stranger. We find out this stranger is her new boss’s, boss, Rhys. His family owns a lot of companies and The Windsor is his contribution to the family’s name. He is a 34 year old bachelor who doesn’t have time for relationships. But he can’t quit thinking about that good girl he kissed at the bar. This book was hilarious. I loved Lydia and how she was determined to get what she wanted. Her inner dialogue and the stuff that came out of her mouth had me laughing my butt off. Her friend Payton is just as funny. I can’t wait to get her story! All the Trooper girl stuff was brilliant. Rhys was initially a big jerk. He wanted her, but he didn’t want to want her. I did get a good kick out of how his friends goaded him about Lydia. I thoroughly loved this book. I highly recommend it. And I can’t wait to see what Ms. Aston comes up with next!

"Anyway, we'll call your next badge the confidence badge," Payton says as she gets to work with her Sharpies. "Since calling it the 'fuck everyone' badge seems a little dicey for you. You haven't earned this one yet, but I'm going to make it and hang it on the fridge so you have a goal." "Do you think this is a bit dysfunctional?" "No. I think this is adulting done right." I do like having goals, so I decide she must be correct. Oh my gosh, this book made me laugh out LOUD! I know that Lydia is the main character in this story, but I totally love her friend Payton. She is unashamedly herself, a little crazy, but super loyal. She pushes Lydia out of her comfort zone and right into Rhys, I mean ... umm. Let's talk about Rhys for a minute. This guy was a commitment-PHOBE. It's been a while since I've seen a male character who is so afraid to connect with someone else. What is always funny about characters who don't want to attach themselves to anyone else is that they unwittingly get attached by trying to stay unattached.

5 star badge achieved! Rhys and Lydia’s story is perfect. From their first encounter at the bar you could just tell that what they had was special. Aston hits another one out of the park. She is really good at making her characters real. Her ability to put you in the moment with them is unparalleled. This book gave me butterflies and had me loving these characters. I’m not sure if she is intentionally trying to be funny but she is hilarious. Good Girl is a lighthearted, fun loving read that I couldn’t devour fast enough.

Can we talk about this cover? How does Jana find the hot guys in suits? More importantly WHERE does she find the hot guys in suits? Good Girl follows Sure Thing and is set in the Sutton empire. I'm gonna be honest and say I was a bit put off in the beginning with another story of a "broke" girl and "rice" boy. I think I've read a few too many of those back to back and am longing for a "broke" boy and "rice" girl book. And I was so afraid that would tarnish my outlook throughout the whole story. I'm happy to say it didn't. I got over it pretty fast b/c I fell absolutely in love with Lydia, even though she is young and "broke" (fresh out of college). I loved her no holds bar on what she is thinking. I love her zero filter and always questioning brain. I was a bit put off by Rhys' blinded by non-commitment. I get a bit where he was coming from b/c of the age difference, but nothing he did or said or past he has gave us, the readers, the thought that he was a "bad guy" like he thought he was. All his reasoning for his lifestyle were (imo) legit. Can't fault him for that, and I hated that he faulted himself for it. You know when you get to about 70% of the story and the angst/arc happens? Yeah I was looking for it. At 85% I was all 'am I missing a quarter of the story?'. Everything was still flowing pretty darn well. I honestly didn't want it to end and I didn't want angst and was happy that we were getting a book sans angst. But it did happen in a way (like at 93%) and I was worried it would feel like a rushed ending, but it WORKED. It really really worked. There are a few questions left unanswered. I don't want to type them here b/c I feel they are spoiler'ish. But I have questions. grrrr

This book was an absolute riot!!! Gah! Jana Aston is a genius! The more I read of her books the more I want to beg her to write faster. I've had a stressful few days and this was exactly what I needed to uplift my spirits. This was romcom brilliance! Lydia Clark. I adore quirky, nerdy characters and it really is tricky to get the right balance and still be loveable and adorable. Lydia is the right mix. She was awkward but not even in a cringeworthy way, she was just adorable. I totally laughed out loud so many times because of what she did or said. Add in a wacky best friend and I was rolling with laughter. Rhys Dalton. He's your typical busy millionaire who has no time or interest in dating. He's 12 years older than Lydia. He should not be letting her distract him but her good girl vibes is totally turning him on and he can't stop thinking about her. The way Rhys reacted to Lydia's quirkiness added more entertainment to an already funny story. Then you got Rhys best friends chiming in with their two cents. Really, you can't go wrong with this story. It was fun, quirky, flirty and sexy! I'll be re-reading this one for sure. ARC provided by author.
