Title: Never Been Good
Author: Christi Barth
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Never Been Good:
USA Today bestseller Christi Barth returns with another steamy Bad Boys Gone Good novel!
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.

Somehow I missed the first book in this series (no worries, I’m on the library’s waiting list now) but that didn’t stop me from enjoying book two…it just stopped me from knowing the details behind Rafe and Mollie’s getting together. All that we need to know about the “bad boys” going into WITSEC we are told (again, I’m guessing, for those who have read Bad for Her –but it’s brief, just the details we need to continue) here, so no worries.
I really enjoyed Flynn and Sierra’s story–they’re both characters it’s easy to sympathize with and root for. Both are keeping pretty major secrets, and neither of them are 100% at fault for the reasons behind those secrets, which makes them even more sympathetic. Both are also struggling to find their places in the new world they’ve immersed themselves into, and watching them figure out “what to do when they grow up” is almost as fun as watching them grow into a relationship. Flynn is all kinds of grumpy and growly at the book’s start and watching him go from that to the much lighter and happier person that Sierra helps him to be is wonderful (not to mention doubly appreciated by his brothers…)
The set-up for Kellan’s book ( Got It Bad ) is absolutely delicious, and I cannot wait to see where he’s been disappearing to all the time. Not to mention we’re sure to get plenty of glimpses of Flynn and Sierra and Rafe and Mollie, given how close all three brothers are. How soon is September? 😉
Rating: 4 stars / B+
