He's done playing the nice guy...

Newly single school counselor Josie Butler just made herself a Sexy To-Do list (featuring Bad Boys only). To her mortification, her best friend's gorgeous older brother Mack finds it…and laughs. But when Josie goes looking for some sexy fun, Mack's nice guy side turns all hot bad-assery, and suddenly she's pinned against an alley wall. Hottest. Sex. Ever.

Veterinarian Mack Kennedy can't believe Josie wants to ditch her sweet, girl-next-door lifestyle. Even worse, that she'd consider doing it with anyone but him. When she leaves for London they'll go back to being 'just friends' but until then, he's going to show her just how bad nice guys can be.

And it's the perfect plan, as long as no one finds out... and no one falls in love.

No More Mr. Nice Guy started off wonderfully.  I loved that Mack comes home to find a passed out Josie on his couch and a to-do list featuring all sorts of naughty things.  It’s comical that two people who have grown up beside each other are put in such an awkward and embarrassing situation.

I guess what I found a little hard to swallow was that during Josie and Sal (Mack’s sister) childhood, there was no attraction between Mack and Josie.  Nothing.  Then this sex list is written and found and all sorts of attraction come to the forefront. Mack and Josie have never had a lustful thought about each other until then and all of a sudden the dial is cranked to 100%.  That doesn’t mean that the time that Josie and Mack spend together wasn’t steamy.  They both have a great time with each other completing the list but I just questioned where it all came from.

I think after they got together the story just leveled off for me.  It seemed like there was no more emotions between the two because they kept reiterating to Sal that it was just a rebound and all of a sudden Josie moves to London and the world has spun out of control.  Both become depressed and realize what they have lost but as the reader, I didn’t see what relationship that was built to warrant these feelings.
