*USA Today and Toronto Star bestseller*

Full of romance, hijinks, and longing, Good Girl Complex is Elle Kennedy at her very best.

She does everything right. So what could go wrong?

Mackenzie “Mac” Cabot is a people pleaser. Her demanding parents. Her prep school friends. Her long-time boyfriend. It’s exhausting, really, always following the rules. All she wants to do is focus on growing her internet business, but first she must get a college degree at her parents’ insistence. That means moving to the beachside town of Avalon Bay, a community made up of locals and the wealthy students of Garnet College.

Twenty-year-old Mac has had plenty of practice suppressing her wilder impulses, but when she meets local bad boy Cooper Hartley, that ability is suddenly tested. Cooper is rough around the edges. Raw. Candid. A threat to her ordered existence. Their friendship soon becomes the realest thing in her life.

Despite his disdain for the trust-fund kids he sees coming and going from his town, Cooper soon realizes Mac isn’t just another rich clone and falls for her. Hard. But as Mac finally starts feeling accepted by Cooper and his friends, the secret he’s been keeping from her threatens the only place she’s ever felt at home.


  • A very boring book

    By TomOften
    I’m usually able to hang in with any book until the end. Not this one. Eleven chapters in and I don’t care about a single character or the outcome.
  • Great book

    Loved this one!
  • So cute

    By pinkyy225
    I loved this story! I would’ve given 5 stars if the ending would’ve given us a bit more. I plan to read the next book in the series in hopes we see more about the hotel and where Mac and Cooper’s relationship heads mixed in. I wish their was an epilogue to just round it out. The love story is very cute and I enjoyed reading it thoroughly.
  • Great summer read

    Great read for vacation, or summer read!
  • I want my money back

    By Mark Reznor
    It’s embarrassing how easily this author justifies the stupidity of the female protagonist and the wretched behavior of everyone else with some anti-climactic “I did it cuz I love you” - which of course, makes everything ok. I want my time, my money, and my faith in female authors back.
