Review by Hibiscus

You know what “they” say… There are girls you don’t take home to mother. There are girls you don’t date on a serious basis. There are girls that are fun to be around, but that you never, ever consider for marriage. They’re not nice girls. They’re bad girls… and you should never fall in love with a bad girl.

Or so they say.

But if all that’s true, then what is it about bad girls that make good guys want them so very . . . badly?

Andrew is definitely a nice guy. He’s a hard-working, decent Christian fellow. Good with his hands, honest, honorable, and does the right thing by his family and his church.

Pathrusim is definitely a bad girl. About as unchristian as you can get, what with her being a demoness, straight from the pits of hell itself. She wants to wrap Andrew around her little finger, and enslave him for all eternity.

But what is it about Andrew that draws her to him? If she’s such a bad girl, why does she want so badly to have a… nice guy?”

Special Content Alert: Biblical scripture references, moral dilemma, good vs. evil

What do Bible verses, a guardian angel, a demon and Aunt Jemima have in common? I found out in this unique story about a succubus and a virgin.

Andrew is a single, upstanding citizen and a devoted churchgoer. He also tries to help where he is needed which leads to how he meets Patti. Andrew saves the demon in distress from two men who were attacking her. Unfortunately, the men were demon hunters and Andrew has saved a very bad girl. Andrew now makes it his mission, per his minister, to redeem Patti. There were things about him that made me laugh and made me like him more and more: I had tears running down my face as Andrew’s two heads kept a running conversation with each other throughout the story.

Pathrusium is a succubus who always tells the truth. I liked how she wanted to make Andrew happy, despite her demonic tendencies. Whether she is a Girl Scout, a French maid, the girl-next-door or even Aunt Jemima, Patti tries to make Andrew’s dreams come true.

The interactions between these two were often sweet, and made me fall more in love with them. When Andrew saved Patti’s other client and agreed to do anything to make her happy I adored him as much as she did. When Patti played video games with Andrew her sense of childlike joy was fun to watch. Through it all I could feel my own heart expanding with the love Patti felt for Andrew and vice versa.

The supporting cast of characters make this story even better. There were a few cute scenes with Dannah, a guardian angel; Aaron, the minister; and even Andrew’s parents. I also loved Malik and his endeavors to try to take Pathrusim away with him.

Don’t let the Bible quotes at the beginning of each chapter throw you. They are well researched and fitting to the storyline and chapter they precede. Goods Guys Deserve Bad Girls showed me that there really are good guys out there and I think you’ll agree that not all bad girls are really that bad.
