Jon is Mr Perfect – handsome (in a nerdy sort of way), caring, lots of money – so why can't he get a girlfriend? Even his best friend Tracie always goes for bad boys; because women secretly love BAD. Jon's desperate, but Tracie can help – she can teach him the Bad Boy Rules.
A sharp haircut, cool new clothes and a complete attitude transplant later, and Jon's the man of the moment. He can have any woman he wants, and does!
But now Tracie's not so happy… while her girlfriends are all fighting over the new Jon, she seems to be losing her best friend. And she's starting to wonder – has she created a monster?

'A romantic, sophisticated and wickedly funny comedy by the author of 'The First Wives Club' and 'Young Wives''
Two friends meet regularly at a hip café in downtown Seattle to discuss their problems over a cup of mochaccino. Jon is Mr Very Nice Guy – so why can't he get a girlfriend? Tracie, meanwhile, is never short of a man, although they treat her so casually – like Phil, a wild and crazy rock musician. But women secretly love this behaviour, Tracie explains, and even Jon can become irresistible, once Tracie has taught him to be a Bad Boy too.
A trendy haircut, cool new clothes and endless lectures later, and Jon's nerdy friends and Tracie's man-hungry female colleagues are green with envy and hot with desire respectively. But has Tracie created a monster?
"Goldsmith hands out her characters' rewards and comeuppances like Jane Austen dealing blackjack"
