Good by S. Walden





Cadence Miller is a good girl. She just happens to make one terrible mistake her junior year in high school which costs her ten months in juvenile detention. Now a senior, she’s lost everything: her best friend, the trust of her parents, driving privileges, Internet access. It’s a lonely existence.

But there is one bright spot: Mark Connelly, her very cute, very off-limits 28-year-old calculus teacher. She falls hard for him–a ridiculous schoolgirl crush headed nowhere. She can’t help it. He’s the only good thing at Crestview High. She doesn’t expect him to reciprocate her feelings. How inappropriate, right? But he does. And he shows her.

And that’s when her life goes from bad to good.

Book 1 in the Too Good series. This series will be a two-parter. The second and final book is called Better, and will be released Tuesday, November 19, 2013.


Georgia Law:
(a) A person commits the offense of statutory rape when he or she engages in sexual intercourse with any person under the age of 16 years and not his or her spouse, provided that no conviction shall be had for this offense on the unsupported testimony of the victim.

If you are bothered by the details of this law or find it offensive in any way, then please do not read the book.

“They know.”

Two simple words at the beginning of this book had me so very intrigued. Who knows? What do they know? Heck, I wanna know too!!!

The disclaimer in the status really needs to be adhered to: if you have an issue with the idea of statutory rape then this is definitely not the book for you. I am in no way condoning this type of behavior when a grown adult enters into a sexual relationship with a teenager. And, throughout this book I found myself so confused by what twenty-eight year old Mark saw in Cadence.

S. Walden proved in her previous book, Going Under, that she is an exceptional writer but this book just did not sit well with me. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the writing, but Mark just really worked my nerves. He is quite immature to be his age. There is no mistaking that Good is about a taboo, controversial subject but S. Walden brings it to life in what I assume is a realistic way for those that must sneak and hide their relationship. Despite my reservations, I will still read the next book in the series, Better, because I want to see how this whole thing plays out.

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of Good in exchange for an honest review.
