Nothing Wrong With A Little Rebellion
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Military Romance
Book Length (Est.): 269 Pages
As a preacher’s daughter, Valerie Hunt only dates the very respectable, very boring men who meet her father’s strict standards. In private, however, she leads a double life as a romance writer of steamy stories about the least respectable sorts of men. Valerie has always kept her hottest fantasies separate from her real life, but when she nearly runs a hot-blooded biker off the road, the lines begin to blur.
Even though Valerie almost killed him, Griffin Black can’t be angry after he learns the reason for her distracted driving: an unruly puppy belonging to her ailing friend. As a member of the military police K-9 unit, Griffin insists on training the dog himself. But he soon wonders how he’s ever going to stay disciplined around the most alluring, down-to-earth, and totally unattainable woman he’s ever met. Valerie is the ultimate good girl. And Griffin is going to need all his old tricks to unleash her wild side.

Valerie is dutiful and always there to lend a helping hand, even if it’s her father who lent her. But she also has a secret side. One filled with romance, sex, and happy endings. She’s a romance writer and a preacher’s daughter. The two don’t exactly go hand in hand, which is why she writes under an alias, and keeps her true passion hidden from everyone she knows.
Griffin is an MP with the K-9 unit. It’s a job he thoroughly enjoys, or at least it is when his partner actually listens to commands. He’s sweet, caring, and between having to do additional training with his partner, his mother’s Alzheimer’s getting worse, and a woman he can’t seem to get off his mind he’s got a lot on his plate.
Welcoming the Bad Boy is fun, flirty, and sexy, but it’s also very emotional. Those small moments of clarity for someone who doesn’t remember pull at my heartstrings like no other. Throw in a dog with an uncertain future and queue the water works. Yes, there was a time or two I needed tissues! However, the relationship between Valerie and Griffin did not count for any of those moments. They were adorable together.
My Favorite Moment: The ending! Griffin may have needed a book to help him in the romance department, but once he figured it out he more than accelerated all on his own.
