“Jessica Clare executed yet another fun and sexy read.” ~ Under the Covers
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.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
