I was issued a warning: stay away from Ben Rosenberg.

As Clifton Cove’s resident “king”, he thinks he’s entitled to anyone and anything.

The trouble is, I’ve spent my whole life following the rules and playing it safe. I know what it feels like to be the good girl. I’m the police chief’s daughter and a librarian—for adorable children, no less. My wardrobe consists of colorful sundresses and baggy jeans. I might as well have a Post-it stuck to my forehead that reads: Yup, she’s a virgin.

An all-nighter with a fictional hunk is about as exciting as my life gets, until one day, fate decides to take pity on me and shove me straight into the path of Mr. Off-Limits himself.


Just as I suspected, every inch of him promises to be my demise. Up close, he’s tall, menacing, dangerously handsome—the type of man who’s never spent a single moment worrying about the opinions of others. A well-behaved girl would do as she’s told and avoid him at all costs, but I’m overdue for a little rebellion.

No more Friday nights sprawled out on the couch in my comfiest pajamas. No more wishing I had the courage to misbehave.

Everyone thinks Ben is going to ruin me.
They think he’ll chew me up and spit me out.

Well, Ben…go ahead.
Tempt me. Taunt me.
Make me bad.

I’ve been out of high school for over a decade and here I stand, feeling like I’m eighteen again. This whole thing feels wrong. She’s the innocent little librarian and I’m apparently the last man on earth her father wants her to be talking to. I guess everyone has a little rebel inside them.



MAKE ME BAD is a sweet and sexy romantic comedy with characters you are sure to fall in love with. This is a forbidden romance filled with tons of laugh out loud moments and heart. I always get a little giddy when a new R.S. Grey book is about to be released. She has consistently delivered some terrific stories which is why she is another author I rank up high on my favorites list.

Madison is a sweet, beautiful and somewhat socially awkward librarian. Her father is the police chief and her older brother is also a police officer. The two are beyond overly protective of her. They treat her like a child rather than a twenty-five-year-old woman. She is almost brutally attacked on the night of her birthday but is rescued by Ben Rosenberg, Clifton Cove’s most eligible and sought after bachelor. Madison has even daydreamed about him a time or two.

As luck would have it, Ben shows up at the library a couple of days later. He got into a bit of trouble and has to do community service to make up for his misdemeanor. He chose to work at the library, not knowing that Madison worked there. They never thought they’d see each other again and secretly they’re each happy to have the chance to spend more time together. Neither of them realizes that they have a mutual attraction building between them. Ben is a legend in their town and comes from money. He could have any woman he wants, and Madison seems to think she’s a big nerd who could never be thought as attractive to a man like Ben. She has no idea how she affects him.

She asks Ben to help her be ”bad”. She’s tired of being the good girl and always taking the safe route in life. She wants some excitement in her life and would like to start shaking things up. Ben is intrigued by her request and since he’s also a bit smitten with her, he agrees to help Madison with walking on the wild side. After spending so much time together, Madison starts to suspect that Ben might be having feelings for her which has her flying high in the clouds. But her father and brother despise him. Will she be able to defy them and go after what her heart wants? Will she have to choose between love and family?

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 5
Plot: 4
Angst: 4
Steam: 4
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
