Why is Elise a Brunette in this book, but a Blonde in the previous book?

Cute story. Predictable. Typical. Good sex scenes. Duel POV's and HEA. "Okay" book. S.A.K.

A good love story with true feelings and understanding. I was able to relate, especially to the feeling of self esteem, the feeling of being different from others,always feeling judged. So you find you are afraid to look for love..

~Reviewed by ANGELA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog The Virgin’s Guide to Misbehaving is not my fave installment of the series though I enjoyed it just the same. Jessica Clare executed yet another fun and sexy read. Rome is in his late 20’s, Rome is trying to straighten up his life. He’s had a rough life growing up and his experience has lead him to seek a quiet and hidden life. Let me tell you, his mysterious streak made him so desirable. Not to mention his rough tatted persona which will melt your undies away just by looking at him. This man is hot. Elise, on the other hand, is Rome’s polar opposite. She has been sheltered all her young life. Certainly sweet but also naive and innocent. Due to her physical attributes as a child, she has always been timid and shy until she meets Rome, who makes her want to break out of her shell. I can’t blame her, Rome is just a sight for sore eyes. Rome and Elise’s sexual tension was off the charts from the beginning to end. I really liked their chemistry. There’s a hint of New Adult in this small town romance. Not only that the protagonists are in their twenties, there was also a bit more angst to the story. Don’t get me wrong, this book is full of love and just like the previous books, it is very steamy. This is Jessica Clare’s novel after all…sexy is a must! My only complaint is how Elise acted in some of the scenes. She acted as a teenager and it was a bit annoying to see her act that way. Granted she wanted to break out of her shell, but the lack of experience left her in the playing field and a bit desperate. Literally. She played games to get what she wanted and once she even cried wolf to get Rome’s attention.  By the end of the book, Elise’s personality does make a turn and acted accordingly. It is why she never made to the TSTL list. I’m not sure if this is the last of the Blue Bonnet series, but I’m hoping for more.  Small town romance is definitely one of Ms. Clare’s forte. *ARC provided by publisher

I have a strange knack for picking books up, mid-series. I've heard a lot of good things about Jessica Clare's books, and when my notoriously picky librarian cousin mentions she enjoys the Bluebonnet series, I decided to give The Virgin's Guide to Misbehaving a try. It's kind of funny that this is the book I started the series with because a few days prior, I was droning to my friend about how sick I was of "virgin books". I know that makes me sound like an ass. I mean, I hold nothing against the idea of the heroine being a virgin at all, which is a good thing because it's fairly prevalent in NA. I'm just tired of reading about it. I'm kind of over books where losing it is a ruthless mission, or a challenge that's meant to thrill me. In Virgin's Guide, we do have a virgin heroine in Elise, a sweet, painfully shy young woman with awful self-esteem issues, who wants to finally give her virginity. But what made this book work for me was, once she a Rome began to know each other, and fall for each other, it was a journey, not a destination. Meanwhile, Elise begins to step out of the shadows and begin to truly live. And Rome, he finds a woman who loves him whole-heartedly, for the man she knows he truly is. Another asset to the story was Rome. Here we have a bad boy who's really anything but. Rome is a hard-working, kind man with a rough childhood and an ill-deserved past. He looks dangerous, but has a huge heart and a soft spot when it comes to sweet Elise. And get this...Rome is a pierced, tattooed, motorcycle-riding ex-con who can count all the women he's been with on one hand. Yes, you read that right! If nothing else, knowing that little tidbit would have me picking this book up. As far as the romance goes, Rome and Elise's relationship was endearing. As I mentioned, Elise has poor self-esteem. She was born with a port wine stain that covered a large portion of her face. She eventually had it removed, though it did leave a faint stain. By that time, she'd also had corrective surgery for scoliosis, leaving her in a cast and scarred. Those differences made her stand out in school, and that cruelty has stuck with her. No matter how beautiful Rome thinks she is, how much respect he shows her, no matter how many times he says it, she still feels like that girl she once was. And wow, Rome was so attentive and took time and care with Elise. I appreciated that the author didn't throw these two immediately into bed. Despite the reason they connected, it was a slow burn. Of course, Rome and Elise's story isn't smooth sailing. Rome's past continues to haunt him, with his family always showing up to ruin things, and Elise's well-meaning and overbearing brother pushing Rome to make impossible choices about their relationship. This drama was so good and had me turning the pages like mad. The resolution worked for me and I believed in these two as a lasting couple. The Virgin's Guide to Misbehaving was a fast-paced, endearing and sexy story. If I was going to dive into the deep end of the Bluebonnet series, I picked a good place to start. .
