    1. So Ellie sounds like a MC I could hang with. She likes similar things to me and has a healthy attitude towards sex. When we first meet her she's lamenting to her friends about the guy next door having weekly hookups every Tuesday and Thursday which keep her up all night. If I was Ellie I would have called the cops, but that's me since I get cranky when something interrupts my sleep.In 54 pages, Jenny Trout writng as Abigail Barnette brings life to Ellie, Antony (the hot guy next door) and Ellie' [...]

    2. Ellie's new apartment has a personality. Unfortunately that personality is her sexy neighbour Antony who basically does everything short of banging his bed through her wall with his twice weekly sexual exploits. Finally she's had enough and confronts him but quickly learns there is more to him than his sexual prowess. This story is 59 pages long, and at a guess 10 of those pages are sex. So, "slow and measured pace" will never be used to describe it. Character development, particularly Antony is [...]

    3. I really enjoyed this shorter length story. Ellie discovers to her absolute amazement that there is more to her sexy neighbour Antony than she originally thought. Appearances can be deceptive and Antony has a lot more to offer a girl than a set of sculptured abs.For a short story it was comprehensively written and the author was able to deliver a story that had some depth. I liked the characterisation of both Anthony and Ellie and I liked the chemistry between them. I haven't read anything by th [...]

    4. Rating: 2.5A very quick read that ties everything up in a very neat and equally convenient bow. I love the steamy sex scenes but that end was the definition of abrupt. While Antony was a hot and good humoured guy, Ellie was lacking something to me. Can't really put my finger on it. However, I enjoyed reading it.

    5. Steamy scenes and a short, fast-paced book. The ending was a little too cutesy for me.

    6. An enjoyable novella that shows how you shouldn't judge people just on how they look and that peoples lives are often not what you think they are.The characters were likeable and relatable and whilst this is not the genre I usually read I was fairly engrossed in the story. The writing was engaging but the ending just felt a little too abrupt, however it was a novella so I still thought the author did a great job with such a short read.

    7. Bad Boy Good Man is my first taste of Jenny Trout's fiction writing, and I liked it. A lot.This novella is written as Abigal Barnette, the erotic romance incarnation of Jenny Trout.I am still new to this genre and I am still not sure it is for me, however, I thought that Abigail's offering was very contemporary, realistically done, hot, witty and funny.The sexual encounters were appropriate and not at all over the top, whilst still very steamy and cheeky.The characters were likeable, relatable a [...]

    8. started out with such promise (even though it felt a little like Wallbangers to me) but IDK it was wrapped up too fast with a pretty little bow.

    9. Cards on the table: I wanted read something hot, but well written and which got to the point quickly. This met those requirements. Barnette writes snappy prose with well drawn, modern characters. I could have done with more development on why hero liked heroine. It is very short though and Barnette does do a fair amount with a small word count. Ultimately, entertaining, but I'll probably never read it again. 3.5 stars.

    10. Barnette succeeds in creating likeable romance heroines! I love how honest Ellie is with herself. Barnette's writing is similar to Sherman Alexie/Carl Hiaasen. Ellie has a strong voice and strong personality; therefore, she feels so real. #shermanalexie #carlhiaasen

    11. This was a fun and super quick read. Ellie and her friends seem very realistic and I liked how much they differed from on another. It made them seem like real people. The dynamic between Ellie and Antony was fun to read and I enjoyed their scenes together.I did find that for the sixty pages of material there was a lot of mentions about things being PC or ableist or classist. I really love that Abigail Barnette/ Jenny Trout has these concepts in her stories. They're incredibly important especiall [...]

    12. I can't say that this one was particularly good or bad. To be honest it seemed to me that it was too much like "Wallbanger", shorter version. Even though the style was great and the characters had humor, I feel that,all in all, the story was not very well balanced and the ending was way too abrupt for meI got under the impression that the author got tired of writing and rushed into it and there was no time for the character to actually develop feelings. (view spoiler)[I mean, they had the night [...]

    13. Even though this short was almost a duplicate premise to "Wallbanger", it was still a quick fun read. Even though the plot was a bit "holey" -(view spoiler)[Like really, how could Ellie not know there was a kid living next door periodically - if the walls are so thin, there is no way she couldn't have heard him - kids are fricking LOUD! But hey, this is a short story, these things just happen. ;) I would read an extended version of this short, I'd like to know how their relationship panned out o [...]

    14. this book officially my first book i've read after such a long m.i.a in d it feels weird, lol. i need to settle myself to the reading world again.unfortunately, this novella by one of my fave author Abigail Barnette, fell far away from my expectation that it would be amazing as The Boss series. well, its not even close.

    15. Cute. Hot. Pretty great characterization and development given that it's a novella, and there's not a lot of room for it. Ending felt rushed, but that may be because I liked the characters and wanted to spend more time with them.(Yes, the premise is pretty much the same as Alice Clayton's Wallbanger, but the stories are very different).

    16. I've completely fallen in love with Abigail Barnette and her books. Everything I've read from her is amazing and this was no exception. I only have one complaint about this book: it was TOO. DAMN. SHORT.

    17. Great little novella. Full of fun and well- drawn characters. It has elements of Wallbanger, but I like it much better. Barnett is a master at knowing how to be funny without going too far into ridiculous.

    18. "Bad Boy, Good Man" is a sweet, funny, quick morning tea time read. Its only 60 pages so it was enough to introduce Abigail Barnette as a author & whet my appetite for more of her work. If you like an occasional very short story, try this, it's good.

    19. Fast-paced. Sexy. Adorable. Great story. I wish there was more but it was just so easy? No useless drama. Just the right amount "I'm-pissed-at-you-but-hella-attracted." I'll surely read the Boss series next.

    20. Took 10 minutes to read seriously.

    21. Pretty upset that this was so short. I thought for a second my ebook was messed up, because the end was so abrupt. It felt unfinished. That said, the 50 odd pages were pretty cute.

    22. I LOVED this! It was a quick HOT read!!!

    23. Gosh I wish it was longer

    24. It was okay, but it really reminded me of Alice Clayton's Wallbanger. I also would have liked for it to be longer.

    27. I don't normally rate short stories, but this one was, imho, exceptionally well done. A very nice diversion when looking for a quick and satisfying read!

    28. This was witty, fun, and incredibly sexy. My only complaint is I wish it had been longer. I would've loved to have seen this couple in a novel versus novella. 4.5 rating.

    29. Another great story here. Ellie and Antony clicked on page and the chemistry was hot. It is a quick read and I won't lie, I wanted more of them at the last page.
