My rating: 3.5 stars out of 5 stars
Brooke Mills has only ever wanted to be loved. The product of a teenage pregnancy and raised by her grandmother, Brooke went looking for love in all the wrong places. She has been the other woman or someone’s dirty little secret more times than she cares to admit. When Brooke’s questionable judgment lands her in the bed of her new neighbor, it’s the wakeup call she needs to change her ways. With the help of her friends, Brooke is determined to find a nice guy.
Adam Branigan is the new principal of the elementary school. Despite the way he and Brooke met, Adam knows there’s more to the beautiful redhead than meets the eye. He wants to be the guy to show Brooke that she deserves more than late night booty calls. But will outside pressures and past relationships conspire to tear them apart?

**This book is intended for a mature audience, age 18 and older, due to language and explicit content.**

The title of this book had me intrigued from the beginning, it's one of the main reasons I decided to read the book. After checking out the synopsis I decided it sounded interesting enough to request. I enjoyed reading this story, but I have mixed feelings about it. There were several things I enjoyed but, some that had me thinking you can't be serious.

The story itself is well written; the writing flowed seamlessly between Brooke's and Adam's points of view. There was only one place where there was a minor editing mistake where an incorrect name is used. The plot is good although when it got down to the actual climax of the story I was left thinking really this is it. But then again it was the same reaction that some of the characters were having to the situation, so maybe this was done on purpose. The characters are great and one of the main reasons I continued to read this story.

I love Adam! Although at times he felt too good to be true. Adam is the nerdy sexy young new elementary school principal in town. He's overall a good guy, who is super sweet and attentive and pretty much everything a girl could dream of as far a good boyfriend is concerned. The way Adam acted and the things he said had me swooning left and right. The way he treats Brooke is totally dreamy, and makes me want a boyfriend like him.

Brooke the other main character is "the town floozy". Notice the quotation marks, she has some abandonment and self esteem issues that have led her to make crappy choices in men. Although, I wouldn't go as far as calling her the town whore. Brooke is really sweet and in general misunderstood by most of the town. I love that Brooke has a quirky personality and is very fashionable. I wish that she could have figured out a way to deal with her issues herself instead of needing and using Adam to do so.

Bad Girlfriend is a sweet story, full of great characters. There were times when I questioned if some of the character were realistic because, they seemed too good too be true (especially the guys). Other than that and the other little issues I mentioned earlier, I feel like this was an easy read. I really liked that the story had an epilogue and was happy with how Brooke's and Adam's story ended.
