Good Guys Don't Date Bad Boys

   (8 reviews)
Genres: Comedy, Romance

Jonathan Hamilton transfers to Sunny Hill starting junior year to run away from his past and keep promises on which to build an uneventful, safe future. The biggest promise he makes to himself is to stay clear forever, by all means necessary, of straight bad boys and their unhealthy appeal.

But promises are only made to be broken, Jonathan discovers the truth of the old adage, as junior year barely starts, and he has a run-in with the ridiculously attractive Maddox Kingsley, the resident BMOC, and carrier of the frightful nickname of ‘Mad Dawg’. (Full description inside.)

Clue:   The butler didn't do it.

Jonathan:  Smart, good looking, rich, gay, and worried what other people think.

Maddox:   Smart, good looking, built, straight--in the past.

Rusty:  Smart, good looking, built, weird, sex crazy hetero, musically talented.

Ray:  Straight, loyal, and reliable.

The rest of the cast is also interesting.  Laura has written a college romance with a bit of suspense and edginess.  I recommend it!

You got me at 'the butler didn't do it'. But yes, I guess it was some kind of whodunnit, too. Thank you for the fun review!

To say the least, I love this story filled with bad boys, fake boys, good guys and one hilariously kinky cute guy.  Throw in a scandal rag, a laid back college, some evil villains, family problems and some very hot scenes all well written.  The story is a fun filled comedy of errors that will keep you laughing.  Don't skip reading the comments, because they add even more laughs.  It has a happy ending which Laura promised and delivered.  The sequel is already in the works for one of the most endearing and fun character in the story.  Don't wait to read this story that will brighten your life as you read it.  

Response from the author:

The characters were well written. The plot provided insight into the perspective of young college age students as they captained the challenges of life.

Excellent and realistic rollercoaster story.

Good Guys Don't Date Bad Boys, is a college-based romance that will have you rolling with laughter, biting your finger nails as you watch things fall apart, but ultimately give the satisfaction of seeing things come together as they ought to. 

As we are drawn into the lives and minds of the characters, we feel as though we are part of the unfolding drama and we live every part of it alongside Maddox, Jonathan and their crazy, loveable friends.  

The story flows beautifully, the author's skillfull writing ensuring that we are engaged in every 1 of the 47 chapters. 

A wonderful read. Enjoy it. 😉 

Response from the author:

Thank you so much! It was such a nice fun trip with all of you by my side!

This is a perfect story for the binge readers of youthful comedy dramas.

GGDDBB is a love story evolving between two campus boys that also gives you a pleasurable glimpse of campus life, lets you taste the flavors of epic friendships, some gossip drama, some family drama and mature humor 'causing you fits of laughter in almost every other stanzas. You name it and you'll get it all here.

Happy Reading. 

Response from the author:

Thank you, JJ :) I'm happy you found your way to GA! And I've read each of your comments with gusto, and laughed my a** off at every gif!

From beginning to end this is a really great book.  Hugely funny, sexy and sassy.  Not all is sweetness and light, dark themes enter and the dangers of internet gossip and worse appear.  

And then there are the characters, a great ensemble, really well-depicted by the author.  

If you haven’t read it yet: START NOW!

Thank you so much, Gary! For the review and all your comments on the chapters, of course!
