Review: Never Been Good (Bad Boys Gone Good #2) by Christi Barth

Posted on

Flynn Maguire isn’t really a bad guy. Sure, he worked for the mob, but he ran a legitimate business—on paper anyway—and it paid enough to keep his brother out of the lifestyle. Until they turned on him. Now he’s stuck in Witness Protection, tending bar in Nowheresville Oregon… and pissed the life he knew is gone. The only bright spot? Fantasizing about his quiet, secretive, beautiful coworker.

Sierra Williams is a woman on the run. All she wants now is to settle into small town life… and ignore the brooding, sexy bartender who can’t seem to take his eyes off her. Flynn’s bad-boy vibe pushes all her buttons, but Sierra fell for the wrong man once already. She can’t afford to let her guard down again. Except Flynn’s tough exterior is slowly melting away to reveal the sweet man beneath and their attraction is too strong to resist.

Sierra and Flynn are falling fast, but they’re both keeping so many secrets. The truth could ruin everything… unless a girl who’s a little bad is perfect for a guy who’s never really been good.

My Review

“People are often more than just what they look like.”

Never Been Good is the second book in the Bad Boys Gone Good Series. Never Been Good follows the story of Flynn and Sierra and can totally be read as a stand-alone novel.

Flynn is still reeling from having his world turned upside down. He’s kinda sorta a bad guy, but mostly a good guy. Sure his past wasn’t on the up and up, what with his connections to the mob and all. But, he ran his own business and did what he could to keep his family out of it…..that is until it all went wrong. Flynn now finds himself stuck in a life he never wanted or planned for. The only highlight to his life now is Sierra. Sierra is mysterious in her own way. Quiet, secretive and keeps to herself. She too is on the run and wants nothing more than to forget her past. The last thing she needs is the sexy, brooding bartender, Flynn. Flynn pushes all her buttons and reminds Sierra of how good it is to live. Sierra can’t afford to let her guard down, but Flynn doesn’t make it easy for her. Soon, Sierra will see that behind this bad boy exterior is a man with a heart of gold. The chemistry between Flynn and Sierra is intense and impossible to ignore. Will these two give in to the passion that is between them? Or will their secrets and pasts catch up to them and ruin everything?? There’s only one way to find out….

Never Been Good is my first book by this author and it definitely won’t be my last. Never Been Good is the perfect book to curl up with and just spend the day getting lost in. It’s the perfect mix of sexy and sweet with a bit of suspense too. The characters are intriguing and have excellent chemistry. They pull you into the story immediately and make you want to learn more about them. I loved getting to know Flynn and Sierra. They were so similar and I think that is part of what made them work so well together. They had secrets and had told so many lies to protect their pasts. They were both hesitant to get involved with someone, but recognized that their connection was too strong to ignore. I really enjoyed seeing their story come together and found myself rooting for these two to find their happily ever after.

Overall, I thought this book was an enjoyable read. From secrets and lies to sexy and sweet with a little drama in between, this book has a little something for everyone. As I previously stated, this is my first book by this author and I’m looking forward to checking out more from her in the future.
