Summary

17-year-old Sadie is tired of being a good girl.  

Her Career Aptitude Test results say she's ideally suited for a career in the clergy (a.k.a. a nun), and on top of that, she receives yet another rejection. An aspiring dancer/choreographer, Sadie dreams of being featured on Dancer's Edge - but they say she's too sweet, needs more life experience. Her BFF, Kyle, and her oldest friend, 79-year-old Betty, agree: Sadie is in desperate need of a life makeover.  

But she'll need a coach.  

Sadie doesn't lie, cheat, or steal - heck she doesn't even curse (part of the reason she hasn't checked off anything on her "Carpe Diem List"). Sadie doesn't know the first thing about being bad. But Kyle's twin brother, Colton, does. And he's willing to teach Sadie on one condition: She has to do everything he says for the next month.  

A dazzling first kiss, two smokin' hot brothers, and a bet that changes everything. In this enemies-to-more YA romance, Sadie learns that breaking the rules can be fun - especially when it leads to happily-ever-after.

Prepare to smile...A LOT!!

I read this awhile back but heck, it was a double bonus to have it in audio-the narrator was pretty darn great, btw!!! Cookie O’Gorman had done it again! I couldn’t stop reading/listening; I was eager what will happen next. It was a light and fun read for me! I keep on smiling like crazy and so many adorable moments between Colton & Sadie. This book just lift off my feet and makes me want to dance happily in the real world. Lol. I dig this story a lot! You can’t fail feeling giddy after reading any Cookie O’Gorman’s books! She is one of my favorite authors!!!

too naive

the main character is to naive. noone would write a thank you note after teepeeing someone's yard. and she clearly had done pranks before. they talk about when she dyed Colton's hair blue.
I felt like the narrator inflected the story and incorrect times and not at others. She has a very nice voice though

Such a fun read!

I loved this book! Cookie O'Gorman has a way to make your heart swoon even though her stories are so PG. I just love me some Colton. This is one of those books you just can't put down. I got it done in a day. Saidie though a bit too naive at times for me Colton makes up for all! This will be que again real soon!

Hot and sweet

This is one of the best books I've listened to, although it's sort of cliché and somewhat predictable I've never smiled so much because of a book before!

The only problem I had was that the narrators voice for each character was to similar, but that didn't runin the experience what so ever.

Sweet story

A very sweet YA novel. The narrator wasn't my favorite. All of the voices, especially the make ones, were too similar. Although I prefer listening to books with both a male and a female narrator.

LOVED IT :D

I freaking LOVED this book !! .. it's cute and everything I was looking for in a book :D
So the story is about Sadie, who is a very timid and "good" girl, she loves her best friend who is gay so she can't have her love, but one day she makes a list to make her have more life experience and she needs help to make it happen .. there comes the "coach" and the twin brother of her friend Colton, and the story picks up from there
this book made my heart full and I'm really satisfied with it and I really recommend it for those who want a cute read :)

the narrator was really good and I enjoyed her performance so much.. the book is worth your credit
