Review of Good Girls Don't by Victoria Dahl

Good Girls Don’t

Publish Date August 30, 2011
ISBN 13: 9780373775958
Good Girls Don’t is book one in the Just One Taste Donavan Brewery series.
Tessa Donavan is and will always be the “little sister” to her two brothers. With the tragic death of their parents Eric, Tessa and Jamie became life support to each other and joint owners of their father’s brewery. Now as adults that little sister stigma still exists and when Tessa wants to date an old college buddy of Jamie’s the microbrew will hit the fan. But there’s more going on in this family than Tessa’s dating habits, there’s an underlying lack of continuity that the siblings must find to seal some old wounds.
Luke Asher became a cop because of his ingrained sense of wanting to help, it took him first to LA but after a close call injury and a nasty divorce he comes back to Boulder for some kinder gentler police work and walks right into a robbery case involving the Donavan’s Brewery, he can smell a rat, he just doesn’t know where. Then there’s Tessa, beautiful, vivacious, sexy as heck Tessa and even warned off by her brother can’t keep him away. But will this feeling last, or will he be brokenhearted once again, can he take the chance or is it too risky.
The first thing I have to say about this novel is WOW, not only is it hilarious, it’s emotional, it’s filled with can’t forget characters and then there’s the love scenes, the only word for them is “SMOKIN”.
Ms. Dahl gives us a story that anyone with siblings can relate to and believe me the family dynamic is dynamite, she does this with her in your face hip dialogue that fans of all ages will get, now if you’re opposed to four letter words and explicit scenes of lovemaking, pass this one by, but if you’re like me and really enjoy a “real life” experience in your romance you will love this one. Now let’s talk about the characters, the Donavan family trio is so endearing and it’s heartbreaking too, to watch these siblings who would do anything for each other, not be able to figure out how. And then there’s Luke, who’s every girls dream come true with a bad reputation to boot, why the bad rep, sorry that you’ll have to read for yourself.
And watching the romance develop is like watching an almost trainwreck. Now my suggestion for reading the love scenes would be in a walk in cooler, but if that’s not possible just make sure you’re under an air conditioning vent. All in all it’s the last blast of summer must read, it’s got it all, action, romance, mystery and family drama, plus those afore mentioned love scenes.
Make this your next must read, you won’t be sorry. Be sure to look for “Bad Boys Do” Jamie’s story in October and “Real Men Will” Eric’s in November.
Thank you Ms. Dahl for one incredible tale.
