About the author

"Newly independent real-life adult Ellie McCormack loves everything about her first apartment…except her neighbor. His bi-weekly sex fests keep her up at night in more ways than one as she wonders about the man who’s making all the noise—and what he’s doing to make his women so damn loud.

But even her wildest fantasies couldn’t conjure up a man like Antony DeLuca. When she works up the nerve to confront him, she’s expecting a player, but there’s more to Antony than his carefree sexual escapades. One hot night with him helps Ellie see through the man who drives women wild, to the good guy beneath it all. A guy that she just might be able to fall for…"

Bad Boy Good Man is my first taste of Jenny Trout's fiction writing, and I liked it.  A lot.

This novella is written as Abigal Barnette, the erotic romance incarnation of Jenny Trout.
I am still new to this genre and I am still not sure it is for me, however, I thought that Abigail's offering was very contemporary, realistically done, hot, witty and funny.

The sexual encounters were appropriate and not at all over the top, whilst still very steamy and cheeky.
The characters were likeable, relatable and very well drawn - which leaves you wanting more (it would be good to see a sequel as the two main characters have been introduced so well).

Overall very well done indeed; I would definitely read more of her works.
I would recommend this particular piece to anyone looking for a quick fun, feel-good read, with some graphic but tasteful sexual content.

 I will also actively seek out other works by Jenny Trout, probably starting with her horror novel ;-)
