Penny Diamond needs a break from her “girl next door” reputation, and tall, lean, and impossibly intense Sebastian Strafford is rumored to have a sexual appetite with a decidedly wicked flavor. Unfortunately, he's also her brother's best friend. Giving into his carnal thirst for Penny might be a bad idea, but that doesn’t stop Sebastian from agreeing to indulge in every sensual sin imaginable. Now he just has to keep himself for falling for the good girl who's turned deliciously bad...

Good things come in naughty packages…

What does it take to turn a good girl bad? Sick of her interfering brother nosing into her love life?and by proxy, her sex life—Penny Diamond has decided she needs a break from her “girl next door” reputation. And she knows exactly who can help her… Tall, lean, and impossibly intense Sebastian Strafford is rumored to have a sexual appetite with a decidedly wicked flavor.

Unfortunately, he’s also her brother’s best friend.

Sebastian doesn’t do relationships. Getting involved with Penny?and giving into that carnal thirst he’s tried to ignore all these years?is just about the worst idea ever. But he’ll be damned if she turns to anyone else for her “education.” So Sebastian makes her a deal: just two weeks to indulge in every sensual sin imaginable. Now he just has to keep himself from falling for the good girl. Especially when she’s so deliciously bad…

She was the one woman who should be running from him, the one woman he shouldn't want as badly as he did.

When I read and reviewed Chasing Trouble (review) in September, I was so very excited to find a new author.  I said in that review that Ms. Ryan was an auto buy for me and I totally stand by that statement after this book.

Plot: not unique but the flow is neat and consistent
Characters: they are likable but not that memorable, they aren't annoying, but there aren't too much character development or too much depth with how the story unfolds, so the reader can't really connect with, esp., the MC's
Ending: HEA is adequate ...more

This was a lot of fun although the book did feel a bit like insta love since everything happened within 2 weeks. Still though, this was one sexy book and can just every romance hero be named Sebastian because that is one HOT name.
