Once Upon a Bad Boy

Once Upon a Bad Boy - Melonie Johnson

I love a second chance romance and this one gives us childhood sweethearts from opposite social classes. The story starts off strong as we get to know Sadie and Bo, and they meet and start to circle each other. Unfortunately, that was the best of it for me because it lost its momentum. The story slowed down to the point that I began to wonder if we were ever going to get there. We finally do, but it was a bit lackluster after the meandering stroll we're taken on to get to this couple's happy ever after. I don't mind a lengthy story if it's needed and it holds my interest. This one was a little too easy to set aside once the pace stalled, and there were some things that were brought up but not concluded or properly fleshed out even after all that time. I think this one could do with a bit of tightening up, but as it stands, it was just an okay read for me.
