Blurb (from Goodreads):

I’m a good girl. Jax Jamieson is a legend.

The day I wrote my first computer program… he launched his third platinum album.
The night I drank my first beer… he spent in jail.
The day he tried to get me fired… I ended up on his tour.

I’m a college junior with my whole future ahead of me. And he’s the vice I’d give it all up for.

Haley and Jax’s story continues in Bad Girl and concludes in Wicked Girl! A new adult romance series from bestselling author Piper Lawson. If you like nerds, hot rock stars, friends-to-lovers, enemies-to-lovers, pet skunks, home reno shows, flip phones or existentialism? You’ll love WICKED. 


Soooo… the thing is, I usually end up head over heels with Piper’s characters. Not only are the sassy but they have a realistic and hardcore edge to them. But this book kinda fell down from that level of expectation. I felt that this book had nothing new. The surprising element was missing which was a big let down.

In Good Girl, we get to see a rockstar romance. Jax is one of the most popular rockstars, and Haley is one of his massive fangirls. She is out of the world happy when she bangs an internship at the record label company and is sent to tour with her favourite rockstar as tech support. Although I did not warm up to Jax the moment I met her, Haley was someone to root for. I have to say one thing, the female characters are the best parts of Piper’s novels. You just cannot help but root for them.

Haley’s initial facade of Jax dissolves quite early because of his behaviour but she slowly gets a glimpse of the man behind the facade. The chemistry between the characters is palpable as the plot proceeds, however, it was not as explosive or eh…. you know what I am trying to say! Anyway, the mystery part of this novel was what kept me intrigued. I enjoyed the plot and I am definitely up for knowing more!

Overall, Good Girl was an okhay read. The plot felt too common, however, the characters saved the day along with the mysterious twist. I enjoyed the writing and the plot was steady throughout the book although some parts did feel a bit choppy. But I am still interested to know what new turn this story takes.

Recommend it?

Yes.
