I love reading and as of now that is fiction only. Love all genres except horror and for the past few years, been gorging on romance. Thrillers are my first love and add some romance to it then all the more better.
When He Was Bad...: Xmas/New Year (Harlequin Temptation) - Jane Sullivan This was a pretty good book about opposites. The heroine has just written a best selling book about bad boys and their appeal to women and how to avoid them, she considers herself an expert because her whole life she saw her mother give in to them again and again abandoning her. She is also a psychologist and she is not happy when her friend and publicist gets her a spot on the most outrageous radio show with the hero.

The hero has the reputation for being a bad boy and he lives up to it in their interview but that is in a way his persona that makes him who he is and he gets employment from it. The heroine gets an idea to interview him for her next book and their meeting doesn't end that well, with the hero making a pass and her almost falling for it.

I liked the book a lot, Nick may have come across as shallow and a jerk at the start but as we get to know him, he is really not, he just has two personalities and I loved it how he apologized and helped Sara when she is yet again abandoned by her mother. These two know that getting together will be bad for their careers but somehow they can't resist and spend the holidays together, talking, getting to know each other and making love.

I especially enjoyed the end quite a bit when the hero confronts who he wants to be head on and makes a big gesture to salvage Sara's reputation.
