Synopsis:

The Bad Girls' Club: it's about sex, it's about dares but most of all, it's about friendship.


When Imogen, Juliette and Beth are seated together at a wedding, they have nothing in common but their resentment of the bride, Poppy. A risque prank draws them together and they decide to form the Bad Girls Club - a last ditch effort to free them from the shackles of keeping themselves nice. 

The club rules are simple. Each girl must complete a dare pushing them way out of their comfort zones. 

Imogen puts the club in danger with her first dare. It seems nothing she does works out quite right until she is approached by the one man she thinks she can never have, the one man she should never have - Poppy's husband, Daniel. 
When Juliette is transformed by a bad girl makeover, suddenly she's the girl everyone wants. Why would she be satisfied with one man when two are even better? But Juliette's evolution doesn't end there! 
Beth is happy to be a bad girl - so long as no one else finds out, so long as it doesn't interfere with the rest of her life and so long as she is in control. It's just a pity Juliette is developing a mind of her while Imogen's breasts are testing her ideas of appropriate desire. 

Are the girls ready to finally take the final leap that will have them branded as bad girls for real? To save the club, and each other, they each have to publicly acknowledge their darkest secrets.

Give us the title and genre of your book and a 30-word or less tagline:
The Bad Girls' Club- chick lit.
The Bad Girls’ Club – it’s about sex, it’s about dares but most of all, it’s about friendship.

How did you come up with the idea of writing about The Bad Girls' Club?
I really liked the idea of dares so I started thinking about what would happen if a group of "nice" girls got together and dared each other to do some crazy stuff. 

Do you also have a 'bad girl' side to you? If so, how?
I think so.  I'm easily tempted to do things just to prove I can and will do them.  What's the worst thing that can happen?  If it's just that you'll make a fool of yourself then I figure why not.  

Sometimes it's fun to be a bit cheeky and see if you can get away with it.

What is the meanest thing you’ve ever said to someone?
I really hope I've never said anything mean.  I can be brutally honest sometimes but that's because I care, not because I'm being malicious or nasty.  I read a post on twitter the other day that said a true friend is someone who'll listen to your drama over and over.  If that's the case, I'm not a "true" friend.  I tell my friends to stop whinging and change their life if they don't like.  What's the point of staying in a relationship or job you really hate and complaining about it all the time.  

What TV sitcom family would you be a member of?
Arrested Development for sure.  My family is a bit crazy like that.

  1. I read this book and I found it real interesting! :D And sexy even. :)

    I read a post on twitter the other day that said a true friend is someone who'll listen to your drama over and over. If that's the case, I'm not a "true" friend. I tell my friends to stop whinging and change their life if they don't like.

    I feel like this is one of those "little of Column A, little of Column B" cases. Yes, I will listen over and over to a friend and their drama. However, I know that's gotta be a point that you can call them out on it, make them look at their options and find ways to solve their problem instead of complaining all the time. :D

    1. Thanks :)

      I enjoy a good whine (and wine) session too but hearing the same dramas for months or years gets really draining.

  3. OMG… I love the sounds of this book! Love that cover, too ; ) I always wonder if the author has any life experience that they put into their books? I am also wondering if the author could choose ANY author to work with, who would they choose and why? This author can be alive or dead! Thanks for sharing with us and Thanks for the giveaway!

    1. Some of the stuff in The Bad Girls' Club is real life experience but I'm not saying what ;)

      Any author? That's hard. Maybe Oscar Wilde, he'd be a hoot to work with :)
