Product Description

Cole has been Lizzy’s best friend from the moment he found her crying in the woods two weeks before her tenth birthday. Growing up without a father, Lizzy was raised by her alcoholic and drug-addicted mother. Being branded as the town whore's daughter, she had one bright spot in her dark world: Cole. He was the one constant in her life, the only person she trusted would never let her down.
He’s her savior, her protector…and the secret love of her life.
Now, sixteen years later, they both live successful lives in Boston. But while Lizzy still harbors hope that one day Cole will come around and see what’s right in front of his eyes, Cole enjoys his bachelor lifestyle with no intentions of slowing down.
It’s time for Lizzy to move on.

Cole has been in love with Lizzy since he can remember. Those gorgeous but sad green eyes of hers have held him captive since he was twelve years old.
But she is too pure, too perfect, too innocent for him and his lustful and promiscuous thoughts.
He has promised himself he won’t touch her.
That is, until he doesn’t have a choice but to claim her as his or lose her forever.

Is it possible for them to have what both their hearts desire or will the cruelty of life keep them apart?

HASH(0xa259d144) out of 5 stars White trash from the wrong side of the tracks meets high society's golden boy and a bond is formed that only strengthens with ti Jan. 18 2016
By TSRBR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

White trash from the wrong side of the tracks meets high society’s golden boy and a bond is formed that only strengthens with time! Julia Goda has a way of spinning a story that cannot be categorized as only a romance. Her first book in the Girl series, Wrong Side Girl is exceptionally well done. The characters are bigger than life while staying realistic and the storyline is action packed. The relationship Ms. Goda builds between her two main characters is a story you will want to read more than once. Lizzy and Cole’s journey from childhood into adulthood is heartbreaking, moving, sizzling and finally a happily ever after!

Lizzy childhood was spent with an abusive and neglectful mother. She was a mother that became known as the town whore, a woman that liked to party hard and drown her memories. On Lizzy’s tenth birthday, she met a boy that changed her world. He became her best friend, protector, her family and the only person that cared for her. As they grew into adults, their bond became stronger and to Lizzy the only thing that would make it better is if Cole could be hers. But dreams like that don’t come true for a girl like her from the wrong side of town.

From the moment he found Lizzy crying in her special place, twelve year old Cole she became his. His protective instincts and possessiveness grew as they matured. He tried to keep his hands off of her, because he did not feel worthy of the beautiful woman his Lizzy had turned into. It became impossible for him to deny his feelings for her and that left only one thing for him to do, claim her. But because of the years he spent running and hiding his true feelings for her, he had earned a reputation as a love and leave him guy.

Convincing Lizzy to give him a chance may not be easy.

There are forces coming against them that want to crush and destroy any relationship that they might build. Some ghost from the past are resurrected and the evil that pursues them is out for blood! This book has so many elements that as the story unfolds you will not believe the ending events. Great addition to any one’s library, I know it is to mine!

HASH(0xa267d6c0) out of 5 stars A book full of intrigues, alpha male goodness and an epic love story! Jan. 17 2016
By Sanne - Scandalous Book Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
***ARC received in exchange for an honest review - Sanne / Scandalous Book Blog***

A girl from the wrong side of the tracks meeting a boy who’ll change her live irrevocably.

Lizzy and Cole are one of those couple that are fated and destined to be with one another for the long term.

Of course life isn’t all sunshine and roses and the years pass by without them being actually together.

Lizzy has always been in love with Cole and vice verse, although he wasn’t one to be settled down all that quickly but couldn’t help to go all alpha male on her either.

So when the fates finally seem to be in favor of them it’ll go quick and it’ll be fierce.

You think that’s it? Wrong again.

Some major curve balls will be thrown at them and their relationship will be thoroughly tested before they’ll finally get their happily ever after.

A book full of intrigues, alpha male goodness and an epic love story!

NOTE:
* Written in dual p.o.v.
* Contains flashbacks

*** WHOA WHOA WHOA!!! This is the first book of Julia Goda I read and I love this author already. What a great love story! I LOVED IT! This is a friends to lovers book, one of my favorites. This book is written in dual POV and alternating past and present which I really like because you get to see what is in both of the characters’ minds.

Lizzy has a very difficult childhood but she is strong and determined to leave the past behind. She works as a social workers helping teens that are in the same situation that she was years ago. She is compassionate, caring and has a big heart but she is also tough with a no bulls*** attitude. There is not sugar coating around Lizzy – that’s goes the same for her best friend Cole.

Cole came from a wealthy family but his parents are so wrapped up in their own social life that they might as well don’t exist. Cole has been in love with Lizzy since they were kids but he thinks Lizzy deserves better than him. So, instead Cole is acting like a man-wh**e making his rounds with woman without ever looking at them twice. Around Lizzy he can’t help but being a protective best friend/jealous boyfriend (even though he is not her boyfriend). So, will Cole ever build up the courage to claim Lizzy once and for all or will he lets her slip through his fingers forever?

This book is about friendship, sacrifice, betrayal, healing and forgiveness. From the very first chapter I had tears in my eyes. Throughout the whole book, I feel like a rollercoaster emotionally, going from sad to happy to heartbroken and finally blissful ending. I was definitely in the mood for this kind of story – emotional, angsts, heart-pounding. There are twists and turns that surprised me and had me gasping for air. There isn’t always sunshine and rainbow, hearts will be tested, but at the same time there are very funny dialogues and some light hearted moments. Cole and Lizzy are cute and sweet together. Cole is really alpha and overly proactive of Lizzy but he takes good care of her. I love both Cole and Lizzy characters – good hearts, sweet, beautiful, and sexy. The story line is definitely compelling, one I have not read in the past. The author’s writing is flawless and captivating – funny banters and stimulating narratives. This is not one you want to miss. I highly recommended this book. I am looking forward to Julia Goda next story of the Girl Series book.

HASH(0xa2713c18) out of 5 stars Wrong Side Girl, 4.5 stars Jan. 18 2016
By Marieke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Always looking for new authors who write great stories, last year I came across the debut book of Julia Goda – Bent Not Broken. Although the writing style was very similar to the one of my favorite author, I did enjoy the book. Wrong Side Girl is Julia’s third book and in it the author has found her own author voice—the resemblance to that other author is gone. ‘From friends to lovers’ books are one of my favorites and I adore this sweet book.

“No cake. No candles. No present. Not even a card. She forgot. I couldn’t help but start crying. Silent tears of disappointment were running down my face. I swiped them away, but they kept coming. I couldn’t keep up. I felt alone. So terribly alone.”

Lizzy Watson didn’t have an easy childhood. She wasn’t physical abused, but growing up with a drug addicted, neglecting mother made her life hard. All she learned from her, and from the other people in town, was that she wasn’t anything special. Her friend Cole was the only who cared for her and tried his best to protect Lizzy from the bullies. Nowadays, Lizzy works as a social worker. Because of her own childhood she feels compassionated about teenage runaways, always doing her very best to help them. Cole is still a part of her life, but as her best friend. Growing up she did have a big crush on him, believing he was waiting for her to get older. But after she saw him with one of her classmates, she firmly believed he saw her as nothing but a friend. She still does.

“Even if he couldn’t fill the place in my life I had hoped he eventually would, he would always be a priority in my life. No matter what, I would always be there for him. I had promised him that when we were kids and I would keep that promise if it killed me. There was no way I could disappoint the only person that had ever loved me and cared for me. And protected me.”

Cole Brooks has grown up in a wealthy family, but the loveless marriage of his parents and his supercilious mother had left a mark on him. Especially his mother has high expectations for him, the friendship Cole has with Lizzy is something she is not fond of. Although Cole has been in love with Lizzy since the day he met her, he has never acted on those feelings, trying to protect her from his mother. Over the years, Cole sleeps with lots of girls and women, but he never started a real relationship. Seeing Lizzy laughing with a man makes Cole realize he could lose her and finally gives in to his feelings for Lizzy.

“I never let on how much in love with her I really was. Yes, she knew she held a special place in my heart, knew we had a bond that nobody would ever be able to break, that I considered her my best friend. But she had no clue that I was head over heels in love with her. And I would never tell her. I was too scared of losing her.”

Lizzy and Cole have been friends since they were 10 and 12-years-old. Although they are the best of friends and tell each other everything, they don’t tell one another about their true feelings. Cole knows Lizzy had a crush on him, but he was too busy with other women and didn’t want to draw his mother’s attention to her. When he man’s up at last, he and Lizzy fall easily into the early stages of dating. They already have real feelings for each other, but actual dating is a whole new game for both of them. Together they are sweet, at ease with one another and there’s great chemistry. The problems Cole and Lizzy encounter are not of inner struggles – they know they belong together – but caused by outsiders.

The story of Lizzy and Cole is told in the past and the present. Reading about Lizzy’s childhood is hard, especially as a mother myself. I can’t imagine neglecting my children in such a way. Against all odds, Lizzy has grown into a sweet and caring woman, always taking care of the less fortunate children she encounters at her workplace. Wrong Side Girl is told in a dual POV; getting a look into the inner thoughts and feelings of both Lizzy and Cole helps understand where they are coming from with their behavior. The adults in this story – meaning the parents of the young adults involved and especially the mothers – all have made great mistakes in their pasts, influencing the lives of their children in a big way. If their choices would have been different, the lives of Cole and Lizzy, and even their nemesis Courtney, would have been much easier.

“I was young and stupid. So f***ing stupid. Causing you all this pain. I promise you, baby, from now on there won’t be any more secrets between us. Ever. I won’t keep anything from you. I will always share my feelings and thoughts with you. You are my first priority. Always. Forever.”

I love Wrong Side Girl, it’s a great book with easy flow and a sweet heroine and an Alpha hero. I give this story 4.5 stars.

HASH(0xa280b948) out of 5 stars Lizzy has been in love with Cole all her life and never thought she ... Jan. 17 2016
By Madbookreader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Lizzy has been in love with Cole all her life and never thought she could have him. She settled for being the best friend, she dated and tried to move on but Cole didn't like that. A night of anger aimed at each other quickly opens a door they have kept shut for years and takes them on a path they never thought they would experience together. Now they are trying to manage their lives as a couple instead of as friends, and while it may have its perks it also comes with all sorts of problems. Are they strong enough to move forward together or will they let the past destroy them?

Cole is done letting Lizzy walk around and pretending he doesn't want to claim her, his possessiveness is getting the best of him and its time to make a move before he loses her forever. He knew once he claimed her things would fall into place, what he wasn't expecting was absolute perfection and he's not letting anyone take it from them. He is prepared for a battle, but is it a battle he will end up fighting alone?

Wow. This book was so full of surprises it blew my mind. I could never guess when something was going to happen and when I thought I knew what was going to happen next I was always wrong. Cole is just awesome, strong, and sure about the future; it is so beautiful to watch him fight for the future he wants with Lizzy. They are the it couple, the couple you read about and can't help sigh in contentment that they finally realized they belong together. I loved their history and how far back it went and I think that that's what made this story truly enjoyable. Their feelings didn't come out of nowhere, it has always been there. This book was so incredible, nothing could have made it better; it definitely deserves five stars.
