A good girl goes fabulously bad in the final book in New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s sexy New Adult romance series, in which three Ivy League suite-mates seek higher knowledge of just how far they can go.

Months after her boyfriend dumped her, Georgia can still hear the insults he hurled at her. Boring. Predictable. Tame. Tired of feeling bad, she’s ready to change her image, and go a little wild. What better way to prove her ex wrong than a hot night of sexual adventure at the secret campus kink club?

In the shadowy den of the kink club, she unexpectedly runs into Logan Mulvaney, her friend’s little brother. A player extraordinaire too hot for his own good, he may be younger, but the guy is light years ahead when it comes to sexual experience. Now he’s telling her to go home—“good girls” don’t belong here!

Georgia is tired of having others define her. She’s going to teach Logan a lesson he won’t forget—one white hot, mind-wrecking kiss . . . that leads to another . . . and another . . . and. . . . Realizing she’s way in over her head, Georgia runs.

Only Logan won’t let her go. Everywhere she goes he’s there, making her want every inch of him. Making her forget who she is. Who he is. And just how wrong they are for each other.

 
 
I have been waiting for this book ever since I met Sophie at a signing early this year and she told me who Georgia's love interest was! I was floored! In the very best way! I never would have paired these two up together, but I'm so glad she did! I can't decide who my favorite boy is: Logan or Reece! The Mulvaney brothers are smoking hot and incredibly sexy, so I am quite jealous of Pepper and Georgia.
 
At first I was afraid this book was going to go in a very different direction, especially with the knowledge we would be seeing more of the kink club this time around. I didn't want to read a NA BDSM, so I'm thankful Jordan just used the club as more of a setting for Logan and Georgia, than to actually go too in depth with that lifestyle. From the very first night Georgia stepped into the club, it's been all about Logan. She never thought she would feel the things she does for her friend's younger brother, and she is terrified of what those feelings actually mean.
 
I had a hard time with Georgia's character. She was really very infuriating with the way she kept Logan at arm's length. Every time she let him down, it killed me inside. He's such a good guy and he genuinely wants her for her, not who her mother thinks she should be. Instead of listening to her heart, Georgia constantly lets herself get dragged down by all the reasons she shouldn't be with Logan, thus ruining so many chances together. That was the hardest part for me. I wanted her to shut out the world and turn off her brain and just FEEL for once. We finally get that, but it's not until late in the story. All her life Georgia has lived under the control of her mother and wants to make her happy. However, it isn't right that her mom places so much pressure on her to make her proud. I was glad when Georgia finally stood up for herself and said enough is enough. She's 20 years old and has to make her own decisions and mistakes. She doesn't want to go back to the way she felt before with her previous boyfriend of 4 years, whom she felt no passion for. Logan is dangerous to her because he opens up the floodgates of all these emotions and wants and desires she's never had before.
 
I loved Logan. Seriously. OMG. For an 18 year old, he is incredibly mature and confident for his age. He has had to grow up at a young age, not having anyone to really take care of him, save his older brother, as he had to help take care of his disabled, alcoholic father. I love that Logan knows what he wants. He wants Georgia, but he's not going to push her.... at first. He wants her to realize on her own that there's something there between them that they should explore. Oh, they do some exploring alright... Holy cannoli, was this book hot! Between the intense sexual tension and the actual sex scenes, I thought I was going to combust. Logan is no inexperienced innocent that's for sure. He's got quite the dirty mouth and the way he takes control is really very hot.
 
We get to see the gang from the previous books too and I really liked that. Jordan does such an amazing job developing their friendships, but most of all, I love how in this book she captures that bittersweet moment when they realize their lives are moving forward in different directions. Change is inevitable and it doesn't always have to be a scary thing. This is a very real thing college students experience towards the end, so I'm glad she incorporated this into the novel.
 
I really loved this book though. As crazy as Georgia made me, I still wanted her and Logan to get their act together and let themselves just see where the wind takes them. That epilogue had me grinning from ear to ear and I'm really sad this series is over! We've come full circle since the first book in the series and gotten closure for all our characters, and I couldn't have asked for anything more than that.
