Review: So Twisted (Bad Behavior #1) by Melissa Marino

Sometimes it feels good to be a little bad.
Callie has found the perfect job. As nanny for a single dad and his adorable daughter, she can pay off her student loans and live in a nice house in the heart of Chicago. There's just one problem-her new boss. Definitely no dad bod here. Just six-plus feet of raw, sexual energy. Whoever heard of a dad being so hot?
From the sparkle in his daughter's eyes, Aaron can see that hiring Callie was a good decision. But Callie's breathtaking smile and long legs have him thinking about his own needs. Aaron knows it's a bad idea to get involved with the nanny, but it's been years since anyone has captivated him like Callie.
When living under the same roof proves too tempting to resist, Callie and Aaron discover a mind-blowing passion unlike anything either has experienced. But with a curious child and a nosy family in the mix, their secret, no-strings fling soon turns into a twisted, tangled knot . . .

Man, I wanted to love this story so much. Taboo reads have become more interesting and fun to read. A nanny who falls in love with her older boss. It is the so close but cannot touch factor that is so hot. At the beginning it was really amazing. Then it totally sizzled out and here’s why.

Calliope, our nanny, is almost done with school and is tired of working as a bartender waiting on horny frat boys. An opportunity to be a live-in nanny lands in her lap and she takes it without hesitation. If only she can keep her mind clean and her hands off her new boss- Aaron. Within a week or so they give into their passion and the rest is history.

They both are struggling with their own baggage, keeping their relationship a secret, balancing everything else and getting to know one another. The bulk of the book is basically sneaking kisses and sex from Delilah. Then going out either as a family or on dates with Calliope getting these extravagant gifts. It just got too sweet for me.

Neither one really talked about their past, baggage, or what they really want for the future. It was just the career for Callie and they want each other. And what Aaron got mad about, like seriously? He overreacted over….really nothing. And that it took months for him to apologize.

In the end, it had a great start then ran out of steam (not in the passion sense) but overall story that I could not really love. I was skimming pages just to get to the end. I might read the next one because everyone loves bad behavior!!

I was gifted a copy of this novel from the JeepDiva in exchange for an honest review.
