Review: The Downfall of a Good Girl by Kimberly Lang


Picture
Vivienne LaBlanc is already considereing something of a Saint in her hometown of New Orleans, LA, due in part, to her various charitable works. So while she's honored to be picked as the Saint in the annual Saints and Sinners pageant, she doesn't think the competetion will be hard to beat. That is until she meets her rival, Rock Star (and former New Orleans resident)  Connor Mansfield, the man who broke her heart in high school. 

Will Vivienne be able to keep her head around Conner now that they are all grown up? Or will she succumb to his wicked smile like so many other women?

My Rating: 3 out of 5 Stars

Watching the interactions between Conner and Vivi  is highly amusing, especially considering all the ways they "read too much into" everything the other says or does. Despite all the ways they annoy each other, and seem highly incompatible, it is impossible to deny that they have great chemistry together. 

The more they are forced to work together, the more they begin to realize things about each other. For example, Vivi begins to see what a caring person Conner really has become - despite what the tabloids have said about him. And Conner is able to see there is more to Vivi than the "washed up beauty queen". 

I was rooting for them nearly from the first meeting - and was not disappointed. I felt the book was true to life in that their relationship wasn't perfect. They built up to it regardless (or maybe because) of the past relationship with one another, and it wasn't (at first) your typical "happily ever after" love story. There was heartache, there were struggles, but in the end - love does conquer all.
