Thirty-year-old management consultant Melissa Franks has a career that's on fire. She has a passport filled with stamps to some of the world's most exotic locations, a wardrobe to die for, and a bachelorette pad in one of Washington, D.C.'s trendiest neighborhoods. But, something she desperately needs is missing, and she's at her wits end about how to get it - some routine, hot loving.
She dates, but the guys are either so into themselves they don't know how to give her the affection she needs; or they're so into her, they can't keep up with her in the sack, done in by their weak sexual stamina. She's in a seemingly endless rut that she's not sure she'll ever get out of until she receives an invitation that sends her hurtling toward an unlikely twist of fate.
She reluctantly decides to attend the wedding of an old high school pal, and one of her worst fears comes to life, again. Her friend wants to set her up with a co-worker, a tall, strapping Marine pilot who she believes there's no way Melissa will be able to resist. She's in for the ride of her life when she realizes that 32-year-old Colby Roberts is far less an officer and a gentleman than he is a virile man who's used to having things his way. Will she be able to tame the savage beast inside Colby Roberts, or will she find out she prefers the rough and direct approach that's sure to please in her new Officer Bad Boy?

I don't usually listen to the adult-rated audio books but I got this one, because a friend of mine, recommended it. A decent story, loveable characters and a perfect narration is how would I sum "Officer Bad Boy". Because I am not a native English speaker a good narration means much to me and Paige Turner did an amazing job with this audio book. Her voice was crystal clear, incredibly sensual and made the whole experience a lot more enjoyable. I am glad I gave it a try and can't wait to get my hands on the next audio book of the same author.
My friend introduced me to Shana James books and I absolutely love them. She has such a great style of writing where she can bring a little bit of laughter into a hot and steamy book. It's a great combination. I look forward to more of her books!
Fun and sex-positive, this piece of erotic fiction delivers some of the hottest sex scenes I’ve ever heard. Melissa, a professional is set up with Colby at a wedding. Colby is a playboy who is cool, cold and calculated. Both Melissa and Colby know what they want, but Colby doesn’t play by the conventional rules. This drives conflicted Melissa mad and further turns her on. Colby comes off as says and does the things, that some men wish they could. His aloof style adds to the tension and his allure. This book is well-written and expertly read. Highly recommended! A++

I loved Colby Roberts's direct style with Melissa, truly the author has created in Colby a master of the art of confidence.
Add to this, vivid instances where one sentence creates an entire vivid scene, the mastery of storytelling. Think 50 shades but with good writing. Shana James is clearly an artist and architect in forming a structure with strong plot points, subplots, theme, character, foreshadowing, pinch points and building tension until the climax (no pun intended). The more aroused she got, the more angry she got. I listened to it all in one sitting. Each word of Colby’s mounts her desire, increasing the pulsating of her desire. Colby Roberts was a brute but he knew how to touch a woman in all the right places….
This book delivers desire. Read it.
Review by Will Jelbert, Author of The Happiness Animal
Shana James and Paige Turner make one hell of a team!!! I bought this when I stumbled upon it while looking for a quick… ahem… but I also found myself laughing at the witty dialogue and asides as Paige Turner delivered Shana James's superb writing!! Where have these two been all of my erotica listening LIFE!? Sexy AND funny isn't something we always get in these books and it was very refreshing! A new fave!!!
I LOVE listening and reading erotica books because they relax me and make me feel younger :))). In this audiobook there is a perfect balance of plot, realistic dialogues and bedroom scenes that are just smoking hot! I liked the main characters which are "mature" and not twenty something's so I could more relate to them. Also the narration is very good, her voice was crystal clear and simply adorable. I enjoyed in this little adventure from start to finish, so If you are looking for a quick "read" to kill an hour or two then don't miss this audiobook.
The eroticism and the sexual appeal of Melissa Frank left me speechless. I enjoyed the whole storyline. It's so hot and steamy.
Definitely Melissa Frank for her sensational sexual moves and seducing romance.
The narration was exceptional and so seductive. The voice was truly amazing.
The way both sex and romance blended, I'm impressed. The steamy hot scenes are well organized and the characters are nicely developed. Overall, it's a great story!
I enjoyed the outward appearance of strength that Melissa possesses. Yet, it was nice to see a professional women express her need for sexual desire. I will definetly recommend this audiobook to all my friends. Keep them coming Shana!!
Yes I would, not my usual fair but had a listen and was impressed by the story line and the general humor of the story not always an easy thing to bring to a romantic story
Being setup for the wedding, its easy for it to go the wrong way or be done badly but the match is so wrong and right at the same time it stays in your memory
Melissa after all she is the main character and the one who is driving the story with her need, desire and humor
Made me laugh, something that adds that extra enjoyment to the romance and deisre
I borrowed this audiobook from my wife, and even though I am not a fan of this genre I found it amusing. I think this material is great for both women and men, because it is not some sappy romance, but a story about 2 highly sexual individuals who are not afraid of breaking the "rules". The author wrote a steamy and a breathtaking story that has an excitement you feel when a crush is about to become something much more. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to everyone.
