Gabriella was destined to spend her days working alongside her sisters at her family’s struggling pizza parlor and worrying about her father’s failing health. Until a sexy and provocative Noah Bentley walks in and makes Gabby a tantalizing offer that would change everything: Noah will buy the pizza shop for one million dollars, but first Gabby must spend six months in his plush Manhattan apartment, doing whatever he asks of her.
Apprehensive in the beginning, Gabby realizes the only way her father can retire is for her to keep her end of the bargain. As her innocence gives way to fulfilling Noah’s erotic fantasies, Gabby finds herself yearning for Noah to teach her more. The closer Gabby gets to the end of her six-month stay, the greater her desire grows for Noah. Should Gabby return to her old life, or give her heart to Noah and be his “good girl?”

Good Girl is my first book by Christina Frank. I liked this book, but it left me with a whole slew of questions that were never fully answered to give me closure.
Gabriella is the good girl of her family. She wants to protect her family and their business. As a result, she enters into an unorthodox relationship with Noah to do what ever he asks for 6 moths. Easy, right? Gabriella didn’t know what she was in store for when she agreed to this deal. Little did she know, she was not going to be able to top Noah from the bottom. He was in control at all times and Alpha through and through.
Despite being handsome, sexy, and, a billionaire, it was difficult to truly like Noah as a character. I could not get a true feeling for him. There was not sufficient back story to tell me why he was the way he was. Gabriella was easier to follow and her back story made her character stronger. Overall a good read. I think it just needed a little bit more tweaking to make it great.

This story is quite different even though it is about a familiar theme of dominance and submission. This is the first book of Christina Frank’s that I have read.
Gabriella is a waitress at her father’s failing pizza parlour. She desperately wants things to be better for her whole family as she realises that they need to sell the business.
Noah is a rich businessmen who is taken with Gabriella the first time he sees her. He offers her a deal that could be the answer to her family’s problems.
The relationship between the leading characters is rocky with a few different turns along the way. The spark that exists is not quite as bright at first and flickers occasionally, mainly due to Noah’s character. He is a very formal person, this was created by the author beautifully with Noah’s very formal and precise language and mannerisms. The contrast between Noah’s formality and Gabriella’s casual and more carefree approach to life is very clever.
There are some twists in the story that do keep it interesting however I felt there could have been a bit more and that is why I gave it this rating.
It is a very easy to read, fast paced story and very enjoyable too.
