Since bursting onto the romance scene with her debut novel, Things Good Girls Don’t Do, Codi Gary has made a name for herself writing steamy, sexy, contemporary romances with a twist—anything from a good girl’s “bucket list”, to an unlikely second chance romance with a rock star. Now, Codi is tackling the trend that is ruling Romance-landia: bad boys. But why should they have all the fun? Codi is taking this fan-favorite trope and putting her personal mark on this trend, turning the tables on gender norms with her latest Rock Canyon novel, Bad Girls Don’t Marry Marines.
Tattoos? Check. Gambling? Check. Racy photos? Questionable romantic past? It’s all “been there, done that” for bad girl Valerie Willis. She’s the resident wild child of Rock Canyon, and her father is a local politician, which makes the familial climate for her…uncomfortable to say the least. Valerie tries to dodge vicious rumors about herself and appease her father by heading off to a single’s weekend at a matchmaking resort in a town called “True Love”—only to have her good-boy fantasy, Justin Silverton, follow her there. Bad girls like Valerie may not get to marry marines, but Justin is a man worth being good for. Readers can re-visit favorite characters from Codi’s previous novels, and get to know the new knock-out couple in town in Bad Girls Don’t Marry Marines, available wherever e-books are sold as of 5/27. If you’ve got any questions, please feel free to let me know—I look forward to hearing from you!
About the Book
The bad girl who stole his heart…
Valerie Willis has done it all: tattoos, one-night stands, even strip-poker. And now, she can add getting a messy public divorce to that list. Back in her hometown of Rock Canyon, Val just wants to bury her head and wait for the scandal to pass. But when she suddenly finds herself at a single’s weekend face-to-face with former flame Justin Silverton, hiding from her heart - and the sexy Marine - won’t be that simple.
Is just too good to let go…
It’s been ten years since Justin kissed Val, but he still remembers the way they just seemed to…fit. Since then he’s served his country and helped his father keep their ranch intact, but he never forgot Val or her wild ways. So when a twist of fate brings him the chance to chase her across state lines and spend a weekend winning her heart, Justin’s all in. Because when he sees something he wants, he fights for it. And he’s ready to fight for the right to call this bad girl his one and only.
