The woman is driving Perry crazy. He feels so responsible for her need to change that he follows her out to Vegas to make sure she doesn't get up to anything too dangerous. But when he sees what naughty things Jane has planned - what's a decent guy to do but offer to be her plaything for the weekend?!
This was a fun, sexy and enjoyable romance that was well written and easy to read. Jane was a relatable character and I'm sure that everybody would want a sexy bad boy like Perry. The pair had delicious chemistry that at times scorched the pages. The plot was believable and interesting even if I did think the story was wrapped up quite suddenly.
The story itself is the first in the 'Million Dollar Secrets' mini series and there is an underlying plot that runs through all the books. Despite that, if you don't want to read the other books in the series, Perry and Jane's romance is nicely wrapped up in this one, so you won't have to.
Overall if you're looking for a sexy, fun and light read then this could be perfect for you. 4 stars.

The thing that bothered me about the book the most was the sub plot of these three friends, who played the lottery together, and one storms out a year earlier and isn't in the book until the last chapter, wanting her share. It isn't part of the story, and it doesn't get resolved before the book very abruptly ends. It appears that Perry is going to save Jane, after she finds her own sense of independence.
It made no sense to me to include that, and then leave it hanging, it is as if the author remembered what she had set up in the first chapter, and went oh oh, I have to tie this up in the next four pages but didn't.
Not a very satisfactory read from an author who usually produces.
Lawyer Perry Bower didn't hit off well with his new neighbor. Not only did he irritate her by playing loud music, but he also created some obnoxious noises of his own with his date. And he downright insulted her behind her back. He new she heard it all and has been guilt ridden since seeing her obviously red I've-been-crying-all-night eyes the next morning. And he doesn't know why, but something about her sadness/loneliness bothers him inside and he wants to make it up to her. And now he's got to follow her to Vegas to do it.
Basically a make-over story where the plain heroine changes her hair and clothes and then all of a sudden is gorgeous. Only then does the hero notice her. Normally I like these kinds of books, but this one I didn't. I simply could not get past the hero's behavior in the first few pages of the book. He was such a complete jerk to the heroine. I couldn't possibly accept that he really was this great lawyer that helped out the 'little guys'; A person who saw beneath the exterior of Jane to the real lovely women she is. I tried, I really did, but the first impressions were just seared into my head throughout the entire read. If you can get past it, more power to you. Too bad because I absolutely loved Bond's (author) other Blaze book 'Just Dare Me'.
Some might think She Did A Bad, Bad Thing by letting out her inner wild child. But I think others, as I did, will cheer that Jane is finally letting loose and stepping way outside of her comfort zone. Though it does help quite a bit that she just won the lottery with coworkers but still her spur of the moment trip was definately the wild child within. I think Ms. Bond had a fun time poking fun at a number of stereotypes in this story as well as writing about the dangers of making a judgment without knowing most of the facts. As you expect with a Blaze romance this one lives up to its name and the main characters do manage to heat up the sheets a time or two. Overall I found She Did A Bad, Bad Thing to be fun, sexy read. You will enjoy this story.
