Sadie Gold is ready to take her career to the next level with the role of a lifetime. Finally, she can shake her reputation as a pretty face with more wealth and connections than talent. But Sadie is not prepared for the wild turn her own life is about to take. The man in charge of training Sadie for her most demanding role yet is none other than her first real boyfriend—the one who took her heart and ran away.

Bo Ibarra is as good-looking and irresistible as ever. Maybe even more so, now that everything once worked against them—Sadie’s pampered and privileged upbringing and Bo’s childhood in a family struggling to make ends meet—is in the past. But the future is still unwritten…and getting there, together, means coming clean about painful secrets and slashing through nasty tabloid rumors while trying to control the attraction that crackles between them. Maybe it’s finally time for them to walk off into the sunset and into a true and lasting love?


Sadie Gold has finally won her dream role. The movie she is about to star in will really make her a true star. However, being trained by stunt coordinator Bo Ibarra will not come easy. Bo is Sadie's ex, the man who stole her heart, then left. Working with Bo certainly will not be easy for Sadie, but needs must.

Bo is quite a good man. He didn't come from much at all, but has built up a wonderful stunt business. His work is highly recognized. When Bo's past is considered, it makes it clearer to Sadie why their relationship did not work before. Is there a chance now?

Second chance romances are kind of my hidden love. To see a couple clearly meant for each other but driven apart by problems, and to see whether or not they can work things out is always rewarding. In Once Upon a Bad Boy we got to see the man Bo has become. This is the third book in the Sometimes in Love series. I enjoyed all of  the stories so far and look forward to more by Melonie Johnson. I have loved each couple and think that this is a very strong series.

Many thanks to St. Martin's Press and to NetGalley for this ARC to be reviewed in exchange for my honest opinion.


While on a visit to DramaMama land you’re likely to find tales of writing woe, craft and party ideas (and crafty party ideas), an occasional recipe, links to other wonderful and wacky websites, home fix-it projects, tales of home ownership agony (aka Appliance Hell), and lots and lots of stuff about the drama of being a mama.

Overall, this site is  a random collection of random stuff about my life – eventually it may turn into something more cohesive…but in order for that to happen, my life needs to become more cohesive, so you may be in for a long wait. Enjoy the ride!
