Book One of the NYT & USA Today bestselling NICE GIRL TO LOVE *serial* trilogy (this is not a standalone; there IS a cliffhanger ending)
Abby Bartlett is the quintessential nice girl. Between teaching, volunteering, completing her PhD, and helping her best friend raise his daughter, Abby never gets the chance to be anything but nice. That is, until the all-wrong-for-her man she’s only ever known from afar starts daring her to simply take that chance for herself. His sage advice? Try something wild and fast.
An unbridled, hotshot attorney with a not-so-little black book, Connor Sullivan has earned himself quite the bad boy reputation. But in his defense, he’s a very conscientious one. He knows far too well that sometimes in life, love isn’t enough…or worse, not even a factor at all. To avoid that misery–and repel the drama–Connor always makes his one and only rule crystal clear right from the start. Absolutely nothing more than a month.
Turns out, a whole lot can happen in one month.
NOTE: This is the first of a **three-book SERIAL** trilogy that needs to be read in order. This is not a standalone book (there IS a cliffhanger ending). The story continues in:
— Book #2: Falling for the Good Guy
— Book #3: Choosing the Right Man

This is the first book in a trilogy and is not a stand alone. This book does end with a cliffhanger. With that being said I want you to know that the second book is out right now and I will be starting it as soon as I finish this review. I loved the characters. They have you laughing constantly with the way they banter. As soon as Abby and Connor first started talking to one another they had me hooked. Their sexual chemistry is explosive. They definitely heat thing up. This is Abby, the good girl, and Connor’s, the bad boy who shows no emotion, story. This is a well written story that had me rooting for Abby and Connor the minute they agreed to a one month relationship. Connor needs someone to love and who will love him back and Abby just brings something out in him that I can’t resist.
The second story will be Abby and Brian’s (the good boy, Abby’s best friend, and Connor’s younger brother) story. I’m a huge Connor and Abby fan from just this book and can’t wait to finish the trilogy to see who she ends up with. Violet Duke awesome job on pulling a reader in. You kept me glued to my kindle and left me wanting more. Can’t wait to see where we go next with these books. A must read for all book lovers out there.

From the New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author who brought you RESISTING THE BAD BOY comes the second book in the NICE GIRL TO LOVE series: Abby & Brian’s story…
Book Two of the NICE GIRL TO LOVE **serial** romance trilogy (this is NOT a standalone)
Abby Bartlett is well aware that everyone thinks she’s in love with her best friend Brian. He is, after all, the type of man a nice girl should be with–the polar opposite of the bad boy–the kind of guy who didn’t let his wife’s decade-long illness stop him from showering her with a lifetime of love every second until her dying day. Yes, Brian has been the yardstick against which Abby has measured all other men. But everyone’s wrong; she couldn’t possibly be in love with him.
Because she’s never once allowed herself that option.
It’s taken a while but Brian Sullivan has finally come to terms with being a widower at the age of thirty, surviving the woman he spent half his life loving, a third of it losing. Truth is though, he wouldn’t have ‘survived’ any of it really had it not been for Abby–sweet, incredible Abby–the woman he’s never once had to picture his life without, never realized he couldn’t truly live without. Until now. Now that he’s finally able to love her the way she deserves, the way he knows she wants to be loved…by his brother.
Who’s giving him exactly one chance to speak now or forever hold his peace.
NOTE: This is the second book of a three-book **serial** romance. This is not a standalone. The books in this trilogy should be read in order.

Wow! Violet once again you’ve done it. You drew me into the story and kept me glued to my kindle. I just couldn’t put it down. I absolutely love Abby. In this book we see a more motherly and family side of her. She wasn’t quite as spunky as she was in the first book and I missed that about her. Brian is a good guy and really sweet. He does love Abby and she loves him too. Is their love that of friends or could it be more. They have been through so much together it would be so easy for her to be with him. They do have good chemistry and are good together.
Well done Violet Duke. The second book in the trilogy was just as a big a hit for me as the first one. I love that it ends with a cliffhanger because I have my hopes and wishes for how the trilogy will end. Can’t wait to read the last book in this incredible series. If you haven’t checked out Violet Duke’s Nice Girl To Love Series you need to do it now. You don’t know what you are missing.

From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who brought you RESISTING THE BAD BOY and FALLING FOR THE GOOD GUY, comes the finale in the NICE GIRL TO LOVE serial trilogy…
Book Three of the Nice Girl to Love **serial** trilogy (this is NOT a standalone)
Connor’s back. Just when Abby’s life seems all but perfect, the infuriating man comes charging back in to wreak havoc on her emotions once again. And in typical Connor fashion, he has yet another proposal for her. But instead of a wild and fast fling, he’s proposing…forever.
Brian’s not giving her up without a fight. Normally the tame one of the pair, Brian is holding nothing back in the battle for Abby’s heart. He has a decade-long head start in knowing and loving everything about Abby–but is that enough to break the intense hold his brother has on her heart?
In this third and final book of the NYT & USA Today bestselling Nice Girl to Love trilogy, Abby must decide once and for all between the bad boy wanting to start a life with her and the good guy fighting for the life they’ve already built.
NOTE: This is the finale in a three-book **serial** romance. This is not a standalone. The books in this serial trilogy should be read in order.

This is the final book in Violet Duke’s Nice Girl To Love trilogy. The first book was Abby and Connor’s story which ended with a cliffhanger. Then came book two which was Abby and Brian’s story and also ended with a cliffhanger. Now we reach the end of our journey…who will Abby choose?
I loved this book. I couldn’t imagine a better ending for this trilogy. The characters have continued to grow and develop throughout the series. With them learning that there are different types of love and the importance of family. Brian and Connor’s mom is a great character and I like the way she was added to the story. It was nice to see the boys having one parent loving them and being a parent to them before the end of the book. Their mom may not have been the best mom growing up but she has sure learned how to play the guilt card. Love it.
Violet Duke this trilogy is amazing. You keep the reader guessing right up until she makes her decision and then you have us guessing a little bit more. I loved this book and couldn’t put it down. I look forward to reading more from you and the story you write for the one who wasn’t choosen. This series is a definite must read for all book enthusiasts out there.
