Reid Alexander's life is an open book. His Hollywood celebrity means that everything he does plays out in the public eye. Every relationship, every error in judgment is analyzed by strangers. His latest mistake totaled his car, destroyed a house and landed him in the hospital. Now his PR team is working overtime to salvage his image. One thing is clear—this is one predicament he won’t escape without paying for it.
Dori Cantrell is a genuine humanitarian—the outward opposite of everything Reid is about. When his DUI plea bargain lands him under her community service supervision, she proves unimpressed with his status and indifferent to his proximity, and he soon wants nothing more than to knock her off of her pedestal and prove she's human.
Counting the days until his month of service is over, Dori struggles to ignore his wicked magnetic pull while shocking him with her ability to see past his celebrity and challenging him to see his own wasted potential. But Dori has secrets of her own, safely locked away until one night turns her entire world upside down. Suddenly their only hope for connection and redemption hinges on one choice: whether or not to have faith in each other.
With the exception of a few minor moments in the first two books Reid is completely unlikeable. He sleeps with any girl that even looks his way. He has no regard for anyone but himself. It was hard to imagine that he could ever change. But after the accident he gets a rude awakening and instead of doing a Lindsey Lohan and getting into more trouble he begins to turn it around bit by bit.
Dori was refreshing. She’s not at all involved in the movie business and she’s a fresh face to the series. I was a little frustrated with Dori at first because all that “perfection” stuff gets a bit old, but she’s really not so perfect and has a secret of her own.
I didn’t think I would like Good For You more than Where You Are because I loved Graham and Emma so much, but I did. Good For You was a much more emotional read than the other two books, it was the one that made me tear up and cry a little, a couple different times. The thing that happened was just so… difficult. I get why authors do things like that, but it doesn’t mean I have to like it
