Dr. Miranda Carpenter isn’t sure if she should be flattered or insulted when she is nominated ‘The Most Virtuous Woman on Campus.’ As a professor of sex and reproduction classes, she’s learned all about the subject from textbooks – but not from real life! But more embarrassing is the fact that her sister, Teri, spoke to a school reporter about her non-existent love life, consequently headlining ‘Practically a Virgin’ on the campus version of the National Enquirer.

Dr. Noah Yeager couldn’t be more upset! He had nominated Miranda because he sincerely thought that she deserved the award from The Campus Institute of Safe Sex; she’s intelligent and honest about her teaching, especially on sex and abstinence. But the “news” article has taken a negative spin on her nomination, and knowing that Miranda will refuse to say anything in her defense, Noah decides to use his own brand psychology to force Miranda to “confront the conflict.”

Instead, what transpires is a bet between Dr. Noah, Miranda and a dedicated student determined to put things right! Since her nomination, her students have been questioning her claims about sex, a subject she knows nothing about from experience (practically!), except how easily one can abstain from “it”. Noah proposes a challenge – one that offers Miranda the very thing that is missing from her life: temptation in the form of the gorgeous, 'love-‘em-and-leave-‘em' Dr. Noah Yeager.

Noah and Miranda’s interaction is academically sexy!! With a lot of common sense philosophy, self-discovery and some hot intimate by-play, Miranda and Noah’s relationship takes a turn for a rewarding 'happily ever after'. Julie Elizabeth Leto writes some pretty hot scenes, but she’s also convincing in portraying the fact that these two are 'honest-to-goodness' academics involved in the subject that college students are only most eager to learn about – love and sex!

Good Girls Do! is an entertaining read that will leave you stimulated in more ways than one! And imagining that gorgeous guy in the front cover as Dr. Noah Yeager only helps with your reading pleasure…. [grin]
