I did a lot of swooning while reading With Good Behavior.
Grant Madsen and Sophie Taylor meet in an unconventional way, but as soon as they do, sparks fly. They are drawn to one another instantly. Grant and Sophie both found themselves in legal trouble due to someone elses conniving ways.
Grant is ex-military and is struggling with the downfall of his career and his family history.
Sophie, a promising psychologist loses her career after being taken advantage of by a mobster. (Does that get your attention or what?!)
Grant goes out of his way to help Sophie out, wanting to see her get back on her feet even if he can't himself.
Both have been burned by family and love but as time goes on they can't push aside their feelings for each other. Unfortunately, there is a tie between them but neither realizes it until it's too late. The revelation almost tears them apart.
Grant does his best to protect Sophie, sometimes even risking his own parole and safety. As the story unravels and everything become clear those that put Sophie and Grant behind bars are finally caught up with.
Through out the unveiling of Sophie and Grant's story I found myself rooting for and loving them more and more. Jennifer Lane weaves a lovely story that leaves me hoping for even more.
WGB ended leaving me warm and fuzzy inside. I absolutely loved it.
