    In Things Good Girls Don’t Do by Codi Gary, Katie Connors finally just got over her break up with her longtime boyfriend and wants to do something fun and out of character. She’s tired of being the good girl that always does the right thing and never speaks up for herself. After a particularly bad day, Katie drowns her sorrows in a cocktail or two and makes a list of the things she’s always wanted to do but had been warned against by her mother that they weren’t appropriate for good girls. Before she can hide the list, hottie and tattoo parlor owner Chase snags it and offers his services to help out with a few, or all, of the items on said list. Katie’s mortified but soon realizes she has a real chance to make some changes in herself, to take a few risks. Chase is just the guy she’d love to have some fun with, but will she also be risking falling head-over-heels for him?

    Chase Trepasso has had his eye on Katie since he rolled into town. He’d love to take her out but he knows her type: she’s probably a goody-goody who will possibly flirt with him behind closed doors, but will think he’s not good enough for her to date in public. Chase figures it’s worth a shot when he sees her with her list at the local bar. He’d be happy to help bring out Katie’s inner bad girl. They agree to have some fun and keep it casual, which is the norm for him. But the more time Chase spends with Katie, the more he likes her. He’s never contemplated having an actual relationship before after what he watched his mom go through during his childhood. Katie might just turn out to be the girl that makes him change his mind for good.

    Things Good Girls Don’t Do is a wonderfully sweet romance with lots of sigh-worthy moments. I love a well written small town romance and Katie and Chase’s story is just that. Codi Gary has taken two characters with very different personalities and shown us once again that opposites really do attract, and that when they get together…it’s explosive. And fun. (And really hot!)

    Codi writes in a manner that makes the story flow easily, no matter if it’s from Chase or Katie’s perspective, and it makes them both very relatable. There was a nice mix of emotions ranging from lust to jealousy to longing, with everything in between, and all blended with a sense of humor. I think her premise behind the story is a good one: Katie had a rough day and finds herself making a list of all the things she’s wanted to do but has been told over the years that they’re not the kinds of things that good girls should do. I think we’ve all got similar mental checklists or even bucket lists that we can compare to Katie’s. (*cough* tattoo)

    Katie was a fun character. Yes she was a good girl, but even she knew that she needed to change it up and let more of her personality come out to shine. Some time with a bad boy, albeit one with a good heart, was just what she needed to feel alive again. Chase was wonderful to get to know. He appeared to be the quintessential bad boy but he was also smart and very talented. If people would have got to know him and not gone by preconceived notions, they would have seen what Katie did too. Even the secondary characters in the story were well developed and made this book a joy to read. From cranky Mrs Andrews to best friend Steph and newcomer Becca, they all make their presence known and add something extra to the story.

    I recommend reading Things Good Girls Don’t Do if you’re looking for a small town romance with a few laughs, a few tears, and definitely a wonderful HEA.

    After reading author Codi Gary’s debut story The Trouble With Sexy, I could not wait for her to write stories for the secondary characters that popped up especially one for the sexy, tattoo artist Chase Trepasso. Needless to say, I was thrilled that Things Good Girls Don’t Do would be Chase and Katie’s love story. This was a fun, sexy story that I thoroughly enjoyed and there were a lot of scenes that had me smiling and chuckling. I loved how Katie and Chase’s relationship began over her “list” and that she was able to “lighten” up and not be so serious. She was finally able to have some fun after having her heart broken and by not always following her mom’s rules of “how a good girl should act.” Chase is considered the “bad” boy that all “good” girls should stay clear of and that was made quite evident when Katie began spending time with Chase and was met with disapproval by almost everyone. I loved how the author wrote Chase’s backstory; he was tough yet sensitive and readers got to see why Chase felt like he was undeserving of someone like Katie. I thoroughly enjoyed the playfulness between them and their sexy times. However, it was not all fun and games and there were some very emotional scenes that were just heartbreaking and had me crying. I love when an author’s words can touch me so deeply and has me so emotionally invested in the story. Codi Gary ROCKED this story and I simply cannot wait to read more in this series. She has become one of my favorite contemporary authors that I look forward to reading.

    Things good girls SHOULD do, October 6, 2013
    By 

    I received a copy of Things Good Girls Don’t Do courtesy of the publisher in exchange for a review.

    Things Good Girls Don’t Do was my first book by Codi Gary, and i enjoyed it. Katie is a salon owner, the town beauty queen, and also a goody goody. She never stands up for herself, and is constantly hearing her deceased mothers disapproving voice in her head, saying “good girls don’t…” One night, she heads to the bar for dinner and a drink, decides to make a list of things she would LOVE to do, but shouldn’t, and runs into Chase, the town bad boy. Chase sees her list and starts to challenge Katie to live her life for herself.

    I like a good romance, and this one fit the bill. Katie was a a little unrealistic at times, but maybe that’s small towns for you. Chase was the typical, but gentlemanly, bad boy, bringing Katie out of her door mat personality and finding out he was looking for love in all the wrong places before. I love a good HEA without cliffhangers, and Codi Gary gives us just that.
