Nikki Sloane’s The Good Girl ARC Review

Thank you to Nikki Sloane and the team at Valentine PR for the advance reader copy of The Good Girl, the fifth interconnected standalone in the Nashville Neighborhood series.

I didn’t know we were getting more books in this series! I jumped to review this when I saw the sign-up. Nashville Neighborhood is such a guilty pleasure series for me. I adore this smutty culdesack so damn much.

What are you supposed to do when your best friend’s little sister—a classic good girl—asks you to help her go bad?

You should say no.

You shouldn’t pretend to date her so she can piss off her parents.

You definitely shouldn’t agree to take her virginity and show her all the experiences she’s been missing out on.

And you really shouldn’t keep it a secret from her brother, the one who’s your best friend and business partner.

But I don’t always make the best choices. In fact, I can be kind of a dick sometimes.

And I know if I don’t do it, someone else will . . . and I can’t have that. If anything, it means I get to be the good guy for once.

I just wasn’t prepared for how gifted this good girl would be at going bad.

Check out my more detailed thoughts below…

  • Characters: I never though Nikki Sloane woudl give us Preston’s story. He is Cassidy’s ex from the first book, The Doctor, the ex who cheated on her and then had to deal with his ex-girlfriend and father falling for each other. Preston has done so much growing up though, and I loved Nikki’s depiction of this guy who is always trying to be the best version of himself. It was so sad when he didn’t think he was enough for Sydney. She is Colin’s sister, you should remember him from the prevous installment The Frat Boy. Sydney is the most innocent character in one of these stories yet. She has super controling partents and she started to fake date Preston to push her parents to the brink. I loved how she grew over the story, and took more control of her life, grasping for it back from her parents. Sidenote I loved seeing Cassidy and Dr. Lowe living a full life together in the background of this story.
  • Setting: Everyone’s favourite neighbourhood in Nashville is back! Most of the story bounces between Preston and Sydney’s houses as they have their summer fling. Preston lives with his father still, Dr. Lowe and I love how no matter what book in this series you read you are guaranteed a sexy pool scene.
  • Pacing: This book just like all the others in the series is such a fun quick read. I know we are at the end of the summer, but this is the series you should binge before Labor Day. I think it is worth escaping into the fantasies of all these stories.
  • Romance: I adore this falling for my best friend’s little sister because I am giving her sex lessons story. This story opens with the clear directive from Colin, stay away from my little sister. We have a bit of a time jump between Preston and Sydney’s first kiss and then so many years later they cannot keep their hands off each other. I loved the concept of their lessons and each one of those scenes was incredibly delicous. Nikki Sloane does a good job in these books of getting a reader emotionally invested in a relationship along what is truly some of the hottest sex scenes. Loved this instalment and would love to see more!

The Good Girl receives four out of five stars.
