In a world gripped by organized crime, family dysfunction, and dim hopes of redemption, can true love persevere? For Sophie Taylor, a beautiful psychologist who lost everything when she violated an ethical boundary, and Grant Madsen, a handsome naval officer who sacrificed everything to protect a loved one, finding that love may carry an unbearable cost.Starting their lives over in Chicago, both are fighting influences from their family and running as fast as they can to escape the past. When their paths cross outside the parole officer’s door, the attraction is instantaneous. But a hidden connection may not only shatter their fledgling love, but prove deadly to them both. – Goodreads

My Opinion: I liked this story. The plot moved pretty quickly with the way that we meet the characters and the way that the book has flashbacks, we see what actually got them in jail and who they were before their incarceration. The character are pretty interesting as well. Sophie is sweet and naive while Grant is a protector. They have great chemistry between them and the fact that they have a connection between Sophie’s reason for being in jail, makes the story even more interesting. I would definitely recommend reading this. It was interesting and the flashbacks tell interesting parts to the story and explain why the characters are the way they are.
Overall: 4 out of 5

Jennifer Lane:

After surviving the rigors of writing a psychology dissertation, the author known as Jennifer Lane has happily turned to writing fiction. She still maintains her psychology practice in Ohio, but please rest assured that she’s not psychoanalyzing you right now. The tales of healing and resilience from her career have inspired her to write her own stories: The Conduct Series. With Good Behavior began with two cons trying to make it on the outside: running from the Mafia, joking about sexy vegetables, and just maybe falling in love. Bad Behavior, the next in line, reveals that it’s not so easy to escape the past, but the plucky parolees once again strive to persevere. Jen is currently at work on the third and final installment of the series: On Best Behavior. She’s found that whether writing or reading, she loves stories that make her laugh and cry. In her spare time Jen enjoys competitive swimming, attending book club, and hanging out with her sisters and their families in Chicago.

  1. Hi Katie, thank you for being on the tour and for your review! Flashbacks are always tricky–some readers love them and some aren’t so fond of them. I’m glad you enjoyed the flashbacks as well as the pace of the story. Grant will keep trying to protect Sophie throughout the series although she doesn’t take too kindly to too much protection! Jen xx
