after reading the synopsis of the novel I like the idea of a shy girl moving to a big city and making her own way and I am also very interested in the Criminology aspect of the book since it was Grace s degree.The book starts off with being introduced to Grace and her three girlfriends I loved their open and honest relationship discussing sex and their lack of sex with college boys All four girls have never experienced the big O and vowed to get their O within a year Grace gets accepted to a graduate college in NYC and makes the big leap from her small Midwestern town to the big city Grace wants to become a different woman in this new big town She changes her appearance and gainsconfidence in herself by losing weight and wants to takeleaps with men Grace accepts a job in a Private Investigator s office and meets a group of hilarious men I adored Jamie, a co worker in her new office and his boyfriend Luke I think every girl needs a gay guy around and they brought in some comic relief Anthony, the part owner who I think could carry a book on his own I would enjoy reading, and then there is Vinnie the other part owner of the P.I company who is 6 4 of hunkiness with a shady past of his own full of issues and crime.First let me say holy moly sexual build up people Grace and Vinnie have instant sexual heat sizzling through my kindle I just couldn t stop reading the book waiting for these two to finally get it on and let Grace have that O she so much deserves Every time I thought it was happening, it didn t The wait was killing me I think I wanted it for them as badly as they wanted it for themselves I just loved how over protective Vinnie became in Grace and how you could read the change in Vinnie as he started to fall for Grace.The entire book had my complete interest I did not find it to be slow in any parts The dialogue was not cheesy the plot was well played out I did find there were spelling errors and missing words in sentences but nothing then a good edit couldn t fix There were times I was hoping forin scenes or in small characters for example Mark Another graduate student in Grace s class who is a police officer I was hoping he would have a bigger part of the book Maybeof a suitor for Grace or possibly he knew Vinnie and his shady past, but his character came and went and I was a bit disappointed This is all small things that can be overlooked because Nice Girl is a really a great book New Girl is the first book in the Girls series by Ms Baum The next three books will follow Grace s friends and their hope to find their O and perfect mates As I mentioned earlier in my review I think given an opportunity, Anthony could make a wonderful book He is very interesting yes interesting is a perfect word for him I give Nice Girl 4 Stars A copy of this book was provided by the author in return for an honest review 3.5 STARS This was a sweet and fulfilling read I loved how the relationship between Grace and Vinnie took time, not exploding overnight Grace is trying to challenge herself and the people she surrounds herself with She finally leaves her small town for big bad NYC to persue graduate studies there But she needs an applicable job, something that would look good on her resume.That s when she lands an office manager position at A and V Investigative Services The V is Vinnie and altho 3.5 STARS This was a sweet and fulfilling read I loved how the relationship between Grace and Vinnie took time, not exploding overnight Grace is trying to challenge herself and the people she surrounds herself with She finally leaves her small town for big bad NYC to persue graduate studies there But she needs an applicable job, something that would look good on her resume.That s when she lands an office manager position at A and V Investigative Services The V is Vinnie and although he scares the hell out of her at first, their attraction and desire for one another grows like crazy.He s a reformed bad boy that used to work for the Italian mob He s also scarred from a very disturbing childhood but Grace stirs something in him he never thought he was capable of Vinnie is the epitome of badboy for Grace She s a good, nice girl but dreams of being ravished and made to feel wanted.These two are like Yin and Yang for each other There s major growth on both ends and challenges to being together Vinnie doesn t think he s good enough while Grace doesn t think she s bad or experienced enough, but they work it out.Add to that a slew of memorable secondary characters like Grace s best friends, her A and V co workers including Jaime, a gay IT wiz that almost stole the show a few times, and an exhibitionist co boss that loves getting it on in his office The back stories were very good and helped to break up the pacing The series continues with Grace s other friends and their quest for love.Although this ended on a HEA, there is an upcoming book about Grace and Vinnie and their challenges sticking together Most of the issues are from Vinnie s side since he s from the rough side of the tracks and bad habits die hard maybelike bad guys from the past die hard.Regardless, this was good and kept up my interest, so 3.5 stars for me I really enjoyed this book It was not your typical girl meet bad boy, girl falls in love, they live happily ever after This wasof a slow burn romance I almost feel like it wasabout the growth of the heroine, Grace, than her love story Of course there is a love story in there or else I would not have enjoyed it as much but it sits in the background quite a bit while Grace s character grows into a woman that is ready to handle a relationship with a bad boy I did love this about I really enjoyed this book It was not your typical girl meet bad boy, girl falls in

I would not have enjoyed it as much but it sits in the background quite a bit while Grace s character grows into a woman that is ready to handle a relationship with a bad boy I did love this about the story I loved watching Grace learn to accept herself and what she considers her flaws I do wish there had beenhot scenes between her and the hero, Vinnie Mmmmmm, Vinnie Vinnie is an ex enforcer for the mob I have no idea how he got out of that job, it s not mentioned who has had a very hard life and doesn t have a very high opinion of women or relationships When he meets Grace, it s not like he was all the sudden BAM I love her and want her to have my babies or anything close The author does a good job of spreading out their story over the course of several months so the reader doesn t get whiplash over Vinnie and Grace s relationship While the whole story is told in first person from Grace s perspective, we do get a lot of information on Vinnie from the supporting characters so we can see his growth as well Also it is noticeable in his scenes with Grace after a certain point in the story There are a few things I didn t love about this book which is why it only got 4 stars from me The first is a few editing mistakes that, while do not take away from the story as a whole, are there and may bug some people I also was unsure about the amount of sharing that goes on in this book Now I don t have a gay bff or anything close but do not think that on Grace s first day of work the IT guy who happens to be gay would take her out to coffee and spill almost every piece of information he had on his two bosses Including things that I felt like were said in confidence to him I mean, he tells that most people would keep private unless they were best friends and even then they would make them swear to never repeat it The amount of openness in the respect was a little are fetched for me I would have like to have seen Grace get some of her information on Vinnie from the source and not as water cooler gossip This is a little bit of a spoiler so if they bother you, don t read this part.The main thing that left me wanting in this book is that they characters don t really get together until the very end of the book They have a few kisses in the chapters leading up to the ending but there is just one sex scene with Vinnie and Grace It s a great scene but I would like to know what happens next I was left with so many questions I would have loved to have gottenout of these characters What will happen when they go back to work Will Vinnie stay overnight sometimes with her at her dorm Where does Vinnie live Does he love her This isof a happy for now ending for me than a happily ever after That is all good but I so wish I hadAlso, What about Anthony I keep thinking maybe Dee one of Grace s BFF s will visit her in New York and end up getting together with Anthony but I am not sure It would be awesome if so because I would getof Grace and Vinnie I hope.Okay, spoiler over I will say that I am very anxious to read the other three books in the series I didn t mention it before but Grace is one of four best friends that find their lives going in different directions after college but they still keep in touch It was one of the parts I really liked Almost every week they would do video chats over the internet as well as texts through the week to catch up I don t have any friends that I am that close to so I really enjoyed reading about women who made their friendship a priority Overall I really enjoyed this book There were some laugh out loud moments and a few embarrassing ones as well as one that almost made me cry I love a book that takes me through all the emotions and leaves me satisfied, even though I would have liked a little , I still thought it was great Reviewed for thejeepdiva.com For some reason, the heroine is depicted as a nice girl, even though she is highly critical of other women she slut shames, age shames, class

and clothes and coyly complains how awful it is to have 34D breasts and a tiny waist exoticizes other races and otherwise thinks of nothing but herself for the entire book In addition, she thinks of herself as a feminist and resents the fact that as a college student and administrative assistant, she occasionally is asked to bring coffee to a client at the tiny startup where she works, because it is presumably beneath her to pay her dues.I guess the criteria for being a nice girl in this book is that she is a white woman from the Midwest, who is slender, well to do, sexually inexperienced, and has a college education It certainly doesn t seem to have anything to do with being a nice person Blech I liked this one, especially Vinnie Lewis He wasn t a crazed Alpha male but he definitely had intensity which I very much appreciate Unfortunately, I m not a big fan of 1st pov and it really would ve been nice to get some of the other terrific characters point of view.

image to define her and with a little workout and a new look she sets herself on her new path What she doesnt realize though is that regardless of how much weight you lose or what you wear its what s inside that makes you who you are I really didnt like the fact that Grace seemed almost vain when it came to her looks Every morning we were given what she wore and how much she weighed A scene towards the end kinda bothered me Grace say big girl like its a horrible thing and to me it made her seem very superficial Weight loss shouldnt define who you are but she allows it to make her who she is Besides the weight things that was going on, Grace made really great friends These people she saw daily became like family to her I think the side characters made the story Jamie and Luke, those two were so cute together and Jamal, even though Ivy his fiance had him whipped he didnt care and made himof a man to admit this And Anthony, he crude and is way vulgar but he s super sweet to Grace and Vinnie, yeah he s the super sexy brooding type This series moves on with Grace s girlfriends, Eve, Dee and Janie Hopefully these other 3 arent too worried about their weight so much Side note I really believe that this author needs to find an editor I usually dont care about spelling, I tend to get the gist of it but there were words missing and or misspelled to say a different word See all
