Book Blitz and Giveaway: The Good Girl's Guide to Being Bad by Cookie O'Gorman

Title: The Good Girl’s Guide to Being Bad
Author: Cookie O’Gorman
Publication Date: April 25th 2019
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult
Seventeen-year-old Sadie is tired of being a good girl.

Her Career Aptitude Test results say she’s ideally suited for a career in the clergy (aka a nun), and on top of that, she receives yet another rejection. An aspiring dancer/choreographer, Sadie dreams of being featured on Dancer’s Edge—but they say she’s too sweet, needs more life experience. Her BFF, Kyle, and her oldest friend, 79-year-old Betty, agree: Sadie is in desperate need of a life makeover.

But she’ll need a coach.

Sadie doesn’t lie, cheat or steal–heck she doesn’t even curse (part of the reason she hasn’t checked off anything on her “Carpe Diem List”). Sadie doesn’t know the first thing about being bad. But Kyle’s twin brother, Colton, does. And he’s willing to teach Sadie on one condition: she has to do everything he says for the next month.

A dazzling first kiss, two smokin’ hot brothers and a bet that changes everything. In this enemies-to-more YA romance, Sadie learns: Breaking the rules can be fun—especially when it leads to happily-ever-after.

Based on the test results, Sadie Elizabeth Day is ideally suited for a career in…

"Religious or Clerical work?" My best friend barked a laugh. "You've got to be kidding me."

I frowned. "I wish. What'd you get?"

"Arts and Entertainment," he said. "Duh. But Sadie…it says you're meant to be a nun!"

"Kyle," I hissed, glancing around the crowded hall. Everyone had likely already heard. I mean, this was the kinda thing that made headlines in high school, and Mrs. Jeffries had (to my horror) announced the results aloud. But still. "Holy smokes, could you say it any louder? I'm thinking they might not have heard you in the freshman building."

"Sorry, sorry." His eyebrows rose. "But I thought that rumor was a joke. A nun? Seriously? Sadie, there's no way."

And there was my best friend. "Aww, thanks I--"

"Black and white are so not your colors."

And there was his inner smart aleck.

"Plus, good luck fitting all that amazing hair under a habit."

Kyle reached up and pushed a long blond strand behind my ear.

"You're hilarious," I said, fighting down a blush, hoping he didn't notice.
