Clean Romance, Contemporary Romance
Melody Bryant has heard it all before. Sure, she's the epitome of the stereotype for a librarian. Loves order. Loves rules and deadlines. Loves books. But what she doesn't love is still being a virgin at twenty-four. Unfortunately, the only guy she's ever been interested in turned her down flat. And then left town. Eight. Years. Ago. Ugh.
Now her birthday is fast approaching and she just can't take it any longer. She's finding a guy before her birthday in five weeks or she's adopting two more cats and fully embracing becoming "the crazy cat lady."
But when her latest date ends in epic failure--everyone thinks of her as the "proper librarian," she realizes what she needs is to ruin her reputation. And she knows the perfect guy to help her: the baddest bad boy in town. This Army vet won't know what hit him...

HOW TO SEDUCE A BAD BOY by Traci Douglas is a contemporary romance with an entertaining heroine who wants major life changes by her 25th birthday and a bad boy hero home from the service.
Melody Bryant loves being a librarian in her hometown, but she wants to break out of the stereotype. Her 25th birthday is in a few weeks and she has decided it is time for a makeover, which also includes her personal life. She has only ever loved one bad boy who is her brother's best friend. Before he left for the Army eight years ago, she offered him her virginity and was turned down. Now she has plans to get rid of her virginity and seduce the bad boy.
Adam Foster has always had a bad reputation in his hometown. He was abandoned by his mother and his father was a drunk. Lucky for him he made a friend who saw past his family and befriended him as a brother. He was entranced by his friend's little sister and was always protective. After eight years, he is home and building up the car repair shop he and his friends always dreamed of owning. When Melody comes to him and asks for his help with men, what else can he do but agree to date her himself to protect his friend's little sister once again.
Melody has five weeks before her birthday to lose her virginity and get the bad boy she has always loved.
I really enjoyed Melody and her journey of change. I cheered for her to finally get her man. Adam was a not-so bad boy whose protectiveness of Melody made him endearing, but I would have preferred much less inner dialogue on how he was not good enough for Melody. The plot was is not new and had no new twists, but it was fun to watch this relationship develop. The chemistry between these two was well written without explicit sex scenes. An entertaining romance read that has secondary characters with the potential for future spin-off books.
