It has been a year since author Cathie Linz has introduced us to supposed bad girl Skye Wright. If your memory is somewhat better than mine, you will remember that Skye is the sister of Julia who was the heroine of Good Girls Do. When I turned the last page of Good Girls Do, I was eager to read Skyeís story. Finally, Ms. Linz and the publishers have given me and hopefully thousands of other readers what we have been clamoring forÖBad Girls Donít the story of Skye Wright.

As the story opens, Sheriff Nathan Tucker has pulled over Skye for speeding. This is the first of many run-ins that Skye and Nathan will have through the course of the story. Each time their relationship becomes a bit more explosive, and the chemistry between them something harder to deny.

When Skye unexpectedly wins a million dollars, her life changes, and not just in positive ways. Someone is indirectly threatening her, and Nathan sees it as more than just his job to protect her and her property. He believes it to be his moral obligation. It is during this time that the heat rises and they give in to their attraction, but unfortunately, both still have baggage that must be dealt with in order for them to find their way to happy ever after.

Ms. Linz fully tells their story and allows the townspeople of Rock Creek to show their personalities. Skyeís mother Angel is back in all her ditzy glory and readers cannot help but feel attracted to a mother who often reminded me of my own. Even sister Julia makes an appearance at the end of the story.

Ms. Linz has a way of making the town and the townspeople real to her readers. Those who have a bit of a rebel streak are bound to be wishing that there were a town such as Rock Creek, and the people who inhabit it so that they could give in to their impulsive side, and be fully supported as Skye is throughout Bad Girls Donít.

I have only one complaint. I turned the page expecting the story to go on, and found out that I had read the last page, and what I was now looking at was a tease for the next book to take place in this idyllic town. My mother always told me donít wish my life away, but in this case Iím going to have to rebel and say I canít wait for the next installment.
