I asked her if it was a decent read, and she laughed and said, "You'd love it. Not just for the police stuff, but the sex, too."
Hey, that was enough to pique my interest, since I happen to be a cop. And yeah, like every guy I know, I love smokin' sex scenes. I have to admit that usually I don't read this kind of book, but this particular author must have some background in police procedure (undercover, anyway), and, yeah, I'll say it: the sex scenes are HOT, and not just in a girly way, but in a way that guys can dig, too. (In other words, Tabke could write for PLAYBOY ADVISOR, if it wasn't beneath her.)
Sure, does the author contrive some of the circumstance? Maybe. But what made it a good read--and realistic, I might add--is the way in which she understands the motivation of an undercover cop, particularly one who has already been burned by the system (as most of us have) or is working with someone who he still doesn't know he can trust. So yeah, trust me, that rings true.
I'd give this 4 stars, only because I figured out the bad guy about a chapter or two before it was revealed, but since it looks like some other reviewer here has a grudge against this author and has trashed her on purpose, I'll chip in another star.
Better yet, I'll read her next book, too.
If you like romance with a strong hero and equally strong heroine, this is the book for you.
If you like hot cops with a hero who makes you sigh and a heroine who has you cheering, this is the book for you.
If you like romantic suspense with tension that thickens with every page, this is the books for you.
GGGB is the first of Karin Tabke's series of hot cop books. I'm already eager to read the next one.
Phil is very inhibited due to a strict upbringing under the thumb of a preacher/police officer father, and an unpleasant sexual experience in her teens. While Phil wants to nab the kidnapper and find the missing women, she also wants to find out the facts behind her father's alleged suicide, facts that Ty alone can tell her. The problem is that Ty isn't a man of many words, preferring to let his actions do the talking, especially when he's attempting to help Phil lose some of those pesky inhibitions.
Phil and Ty literally smoke on the pages. The story behind their history is heavy and deep; there is no fluff to be found in this book. Ms. Tabke offers interesting glimpses of the sometimes desperate, often dark, world of erotic dancing, and an eye-opening look at the questionable goings-on behind the police force. I enjoyed this book not just for its eroticism, but for the powerful storytelling. It is obvious that details were well thought-out and researched. Kudos to Karin Tabke!

What makes Good Girl Gone Bad different from the usual romantic suspense fare is that it has a satisfying dose of scorching hot sex scenes - something the mainstream romantic suspense lack - yet it's so well-balanced and fits into the plot. Being a guzzler of erotic romances these days, I am, however, not a paranormal fan and most of the erotic romances that have suspense and action are paranormals. When I chanced on Good Girl Gone Bad, I took the leap and bought the tradeback (too expensive to be my regular purchase format) and I am just blown away by this book!
As soon as I finished reading the excerpt to Karin's next book, Skin, I had to place an order but, thankfully, checked my TBR pile and to my delight, there it was in the pile! Now I can't wait to start on Reece's story and if you read GGGB, you'll be buying Skin, too!
The romance between Tyler and Phil is believable and I found myself aching to see Tyler finally give in enough to let their romance develop instead of insisting it was only sex. While GGGB gave me my pre-requisite HEA, it's not your typical romance HEA. It's a HFN - Happy For Now. While I did miss my formulaic romance HEA, it is a happy end to a wonderful story and there is absolutely no doubt in the reader's mind that Tyler is deeply in love with Phil.
Still, I'm hoping that the second book, Skin, which features Tyler's yummy colleague, Reece, will have Tyler and Phil making appearances and I might even have Tyler finally saying those Three Little Words to Phil that he refuses to say to her in GGGB.
