When Marianne Webb decides to leave her life behind, she breaks off all ties and leaves town without telling anyone. The former Webb Country Cotton Queen is tired of being a miss goody-two-shoes. In her hometown, located in Webb, South Carolina it is expected that she marry the picture perfect man and help with the family business, Webb Enterprises. But she decided it is time to learn that good is not always best and Being a Bad Girl can be so much more fun. When she leaves town, she ends up at her cousins Warren’s bar in Portland Maine and it is there she starts her adventure of Being a Bad Girl but first she must find herself a bad boy.

Dr. Oscar “Oz” Strummer Ph.D says he does not mind helping out to raise money for the local youth center by auctioning himself off for a date. Assuming it would be mostly locals, he had no trouble with his friend and his wife helping him out. A Harley, chaps and the whole “bad biker” image, he figured “Why not”? It is for charity.

He had no idea that driving up on the Harley, with the engines running and the image he was portraying, would get the reaction that it did.

One day in Boston and Marianne thinks she has found the perfect man to help her get rid of her goody-two-shoe image. After winning a very high bid on Oz, off they go on the Harley. But will Marianne be able to follow through on Being a Bad Girl? Will she have second thoughts to a night of sex and question herself about trying to be a bad girl? Will her past catch up with her? If so how will Oz react? And if she finds out he is a Dr. of psychology how will she feel about that? Will she have to leave town to face her past in order to move forward?

I enjoyed this book until the last page. There were a few things I would have like to see more explanation on, but the story was good. Julie Cohen kept me in suspense until Marianne realized she is who she is, but fantasies are okay too. This is a keeper for me and would be very happy to recommend it to others.
