The Downfall of a Good Girl (Harlequin Kiss Series #2) by Kimberly Lang

"Why would you decide to seduce me? And why now after all these years?"

Southern debutante Vivienne LaBlanc can't believe bad-boy rock star Connor Mansfield is back in town for the New Orleans annual Saints and Sinners pageant. He has a reputation as wicked as his devilish smile, and Vivi has no intention of becoming one of his latest groupies!

He once crushed her high school heart, so playing the saint to Connor's sinner should be easy. But how can Vivi get those less than angelic thoughts out of her head—especially when Connor's so good at tempting her to be bad?

Next month, watch out for the second book in Kimberly Lang's duet: The Taming of a Wild Child

Harlequin KISS has 4 new fun, flirty, and sensual romance books available every month.

While not for everyone, I love these quick, fun romances that Harlequin is delivering via the KISS label. Really like the characters and New Orleans setting!

Sometimes what you really need is solid I-hate-you-but-I-love-you love story. The Downfall of a Good Girl falls solidly into that category and definitely doesn’t disappoint. Though it’s a fun, flirty story about two people who knew each other when, only to be reunited after both having very public personas—Vivienne, a Miss America runner up; Connor, a rock star with a bad reputation—there is a shocking level of depth to this story. As the characters compete in the New Orleans Saints and Sinners pageant, a charity event to raise money for Hurricane Katrina clean-up in which two New Orleans natives compete to raise the most money in the weeks leading up to Mardi Gras, they find themselves drawn toward each other in a way that shocks them both, but they are also facing what life brings in your late 20s. They’re both trying to come to terms with their age, and with what life means when you’re possibly considered a washed-up beauty queen and a bad boy musician whose life in the public eye might have changed the way his fans feel about his music. As Vivienne and Connor navigate not only their charity event, their past, their personal lives, and their careers, they also find that their feelings and relationships are the aspects of their lives that have been most neglected. Luckily for them both, they’re in the mood to fix that. Overall, this is a really fun, quick read set in New Orleans. The setting is so evocative it will have you trying to book a flight so you can have beignets at Cafe du Monde, the romance is hot, but not so porny that you’re praying no one is reading over your shoulder on the train, and story is surpremely satisfying. If you’re looking for a quick read set in the South with a rocker who wears leather, The Downfall of a Good Girl will do the trick.

The Downfall of a Good Girl  The Downfall of a Good Girl is part of Harlequin’s new KISS line, which are all about flirting and the “delirium of a potential new romance.”  And it definitely is a good fit.  Vivi and Connor love to bicker and the battle of wills is fun.  It becomes even more fun, and steamy, when they lay aside their swords and decide to be “civil.”  I really liked both Vivi and Connor and enjoyed watching them let go of some long held beliefs about the other in order to get along.  For a full review, please visit BookTrib or romanticreadsandsuch on wordpress
