REVIEW: Be Bad, for Goodness Sake by Tara Lain


Kit is a metrosexual guy; he’s good at his marketing job as well as loving fashion, design, and planning parties. He adores his boss, Bett, so when she asks him to plan a big party at her house, he jumps at the opportunity. He reminds himself that she’s older, richer, and has a big CEO boyfriend, but it’s when he discovers she thinks he’s gay that really dashes his hopes. Finding some unflattering things out about her boyfriend, Kit knows he needs to do something, but what? With a little holiday magic, will Kit and Bett get their chance to be bad, for goodness sake?

Title:  Be Bad, for Goodness Sake
Series:  N/A
Book #: N/A
Author:  Tara Lain
Approximate Book Length:  18 Pages
Recommended Reader Age:  18+
Sexual Content:  Moderate


While it’s Tara Lain’s first story about a male and female couple, it’s still very much her style. It’s got some quirky flare and her laugh out loud humor with chemistry and a villain you’ll love to hate. The biggest difference about this book compared to her other works is that this is not an erotic romance; it’s more sensual. Is there sex, yes, but it’s not conveyed in such a way as to make you blush and go “so this is an alone time story”.

I will say that while I enjoyed this story, there were a few cliché moments that don’t really hurt it, but overall it just doesn’t quite have the same magic that Tara Lain’s other works do. I think the biggest factor in that is the fact that this is one of her shortest tales. I really think it would have benefitted more from being a little longer. The character development is good, and the tension between Bett and Kit is too, but I wanted more closure than the end provided. I guess ultimately I just wanted more.

In Conclusion:

A great read for a little Christmas cheer, Be Bad, for Goodness Sake is a sweet romantic tale that will have you tagging along for the ride as two people realize that what they always wanted, whether they knew it or not, is right before them for the taking.
