She actually allowed herself to be completely used by Johnny, on multiple occasions, and had a hard time stopping her obsession with him. Like, what's she supposed to be? That's all I retained about her. What a stupid, jerk.
Also, how could she cheat on Christian? I don't care if you're madly, insanely, obsessively in love with someone else which she is.. Cheating is an "auto-hate" for me. You, also, are an asshole. You are a lame, grumpy, prima donna of a character and I hated you from the very beginning. Christian was a shitty love interest too. He never made his move and he was also a complete doormat to Johnny.
All in all, I want to give this book a 2. Will not continue to read the series. Mar 19, Makii rated it really liked it. Primero que todo, odio la portada! En realidad, odio los libros con ese estilo de portada! No te dicen nada mas que mostrarte la vida de Meg como asistente de la super estrella del rock Johnny. De verdad, cansa siempre lo mismo: Se que es un desastre, hasta a veces mala persona e insensible.
Christian no me gusta. Ya corro a leer Baby Be Mine porque la angustia me esta matando! Espero que Meg use la cabeza y elija bien Feb 01, Tricia Villanueva rated it it was amazing. I'm such a sucker for stories like this. I just can't help it! Johnny Be Good is really no different from any celebrity centered books out there. The titular Johnny is your stereotypical Rock Star. He is the walking embodiment of the Rock and Roll lifestyle.
He is constantly drinking, doing drugs and sleeping around with random women. He is also incredibly, drop dead gor I'm such a sucker for stories like this. He is also incredibly, drop dead gorgeous. Needless to say, after spending most of her waking hours with the Rock Star, she ends up falling for him.
Johnny's behavior towards Meg is confusing and frustrating most of the time. He kisses her and then acts like nothing happened, he sleeps with her and then comes home with another woman. Despite all of this, Meg just couldn't get rid of her feelings for Johnny. To make things worse, she can't talk to anybody about it, not even her best friend back home in London because of the confidentiality agreement she signed when she started working for Johnny.
The only other person she could talk to was Christian, Johnny's close friend since childhood.
Johnny Be Good
Christian was in town to write Johnny's biography and he pretty much figures out what's going on between Meg and his friend without Meg needing to tell him anything. It was pretty much obvious at this point that Christian had feelings for Meg, but he doesn't say a word to her even when he leaves to go back to London. Some time after, Meg, finally fed up with Johnny's behavior, decides to quit her job and goes back to London as well. She was half hoping that Johnny would stop her, but in the end he doesn't and she's heartbroken. Back in London, Meg moves back in with her best friend but her best friend already found a new roommate so Meg had to make do with the couch until she found her own place.
She gets a job at an exclusive restaurant and one day while she was at work, Christian shows up. They catch up and Meg casually mentions that she's looking for a place. Christian offers to rent Meg the spare room at his place and so Meg ends up moving in with him. Eventually, Christian confesses to Meg that he has feelings for her and Meg realizes that while she still wasn't completely over Johnny, she also had feelings for Christian.
They become a couple and soon Christian finishes the biography he was writing and flies back to LA to have Johnny read and approve it. He also tells Johnny that he and Meg are together. Johnny doesn't take the news well. He punches Christian and flies to London to see Meg. Johnny shows up at Meg and Christian's place in the middle of the night and tries to convince Meg to leave Christian and be with him instead.
Johnny tells her that he loves her and that he's willing to go to rehab for her. He tries to kiss her but she pushes him away and out of the front door. Before leaving, Johnny tells her that he's coming back for her after he gets out of rehab. Meg tried not to think about what Johnny said. She figured he was just drunk and he probably didn't mean it. To her surprise, Johnny shows up a few weeks later, freshly out of rehab. Again, he tries to get Meg to leave Christian and go back to LA with him. At this point, Meg realizes that while she still had feelings for Johnny, it was Christian she truly loved.
She and Johnny make small talk and Johnny ends up kissing her. To her surprise, she found herself kissing him back and they end up having sex. She feels guilty afterwards and she kicks Johnny out. She couldn't bear the thought of leaving Christian and hurting him. Before he leaves, Johnny tells Meg that he will give her three months to decide. He will wait for her for three months and he will let her ago after that.

Meg says okay and the book ends. There is an epilogue but I can't talk about it without spoiling the story more than I already have. What can I say? I thoroughly loved this book! My feelings towards Meg is neutral.
I liked her well enough but I wanted to smack her at times for letting Johnny get away with treating her badly. And Johnny, as much as I wanted to hate him for being a drunken womanizer, I just couldn't. Okay, so maybe I should cut Meg some slack. What the hell is with girls and our attraction to bad boys? So yeah, I do think Johnny is pretty hot, but through the whole book, I found myself leaning towards Christian.
Sure he's not as rich or good looking, but he's a great guy.

He's sweet, thoughtful and he's really good to Meg. Also, despite Johnny being a complete asshole to him at times, Christian remains a loyal friend to Johnny. That says a lot about him, in my opinion. I'm glad that at the end of the book, Meg realizes that Johnny isn't the guy for her. Sure he says he can change, but somehow I really find that hard to believe. I really enjoyed reading this book. It's one of those books that despite being frustrating at times, you just can't help but keep reading. The ending wasn't quite as satisfying as I would have liked.
It was pretty vague. But then again, the story isn't really over is it? We find out in the epilogue that the story is indeed far from over. There are bigger problems up ahead and I for one, can not wait to start reading the sequel. Feb 15, Vanessa Loockx added it. Een van mijn favo boeken van Paige Toon!!
And when my friend Renee highly recommended this book, I just had to read it. And boy am I happy I did!!!! This is a chick-lit romance; the characters and the story are so well constructed that I quickly and easily got lost inside the angst, and the rocky relationship between the characters. What a fantastic book, I loved it beyond words. Thanks ReeRee for this amazing rec!

He was funny and sometimes a bit of a douche bag but you can't hate him totally since he has this endearing quality to him. I loved Meg and I kind of loved Johnny even if he just hurts Meg. It was a great contemporary romance filled with hot British rock stars. Aug 30, Leah rated it it was amazing Shelves: She tells herself she will not fall for him but ultimately does.
It was a fabulous read and, if any of it is true, it shows a lot about what goes on in the world of a rockstar, the drinking and the drugs. Johnny was a good, but flawed, character and I kept hoping he would wake up and smell the coffee. I think the only disappointment, and it is minor, was the ending. In the end I did love the book and the epilogue was only a minor minor disappointment.
I whizzed throught the book and it was a real page-turner. Jun 29, Jenny - TotallybookedBlog rated it really liked it. I read these two books in one sitting and absolutely loved every minute. Megs is offered the dream of PA to Johnny Jefferson, the man of the moment……. Oh good luck with that Megs! Of course she does and what follows is a fun, and at times t I read these two books in one sitting and absolutely loved every minute. Of course she does and what follows is a fun, and at times touching story of the relationship between these two.
Johnny is set on self- destructive. She left her life and her friends behind and working for Johnny and having the feelings she does just makes her sadder and lonelier than ever. Christian is in town to write an autobiography on Johnny and Megs and Christan form a friendship which leaves her conflicted in her feelings between Johnny and Christian. To say Johnny gives you whiplash is an understatement. I really did like Megs. I loved the humor she had and the way she handled situations though I did want her to stand up to Johnny more. I wanted her to stop letting him treat her the way he did and tell him how she felt.
It does end on a cliffhanger but at least you have book two Baby Be Mine to dive straight into Weiter gehts mit Band May 24, Rotceh rated it did not like it Shelves: First, i'll say this: I didn't think that I could hate a character as much, but hey, Heeereeee's Johnny! I would have rated this book a hundred if the ending was different. I mean, Johhny is not a "bad boy", he's a narcissistic- misogynistic prick. He treats people like crap just because he can. What's up with authors condoning this kind of behavio First, i'll say this: I'm kind of sick of this!
Oh yeah, but love cures everything, right? And I'll tell you why. One cannot give what one doesn't have. You can't love someone unless you love yourself first and I'm speaking of all characters here. Is obvious that none of the characters is healthy here. I'll start with Meg. I feel sorry for her, I don't hate her character as much, I think she's a smart enough woman to realize she's being used, but she fell for his manipulative way.
She sabotages herself again and again and makes her happiness depends on whether or not Johnny is gonna love her. That's sad, but that happens a lot to. Statistically, one in three woman is gonna be abused somehow what happens in the book IS a type of emotional abuse. And when I said another ending would have made this book, is that instead of empowering this woman to overcome her abusive partner, she decides not to and view spoiler [ get her pregnant by -possibly- him!!
Yes, we are flawed, but that's not an excuse to stand abuse. There's this self-destructive behavior, so you'll say: He's sick and as soon as he gets help he's gonna get better and love her. But no, that would be true, and maybe this book would be too, if the next thing would happen at any given point: That's the difference, and that is what, in my opinion, makes him a sociopath. He never truly feels bad for anything bad he's done, and that's not due to the alcohol and drugs, that's to him being a sociopath.
