Unwrapping a Review of THINGS GOOD GIRLS DON'T DO by Codi Gary

Some romances will touch you differently than others. Some make you cry, some make you laugh, and some just make you sigh with the delightfulness of the story and a sweet ending. THINGS GOOD GIRLS DON’T DO by Codi Gary is one that does it all.

***purchased for my own reading enjoyment but I’m sharing my honest and unscripted thoughts with you because I can.


Good girls don't steal.
Good girls don't visit sex shops.
Good girls don't have one-night stands.

For Katie Conners, being a good girl just isn't worth it anymore. It used to mean getting the life she always wanted. But that was before she got dumped and her ex got engaged to his rebound. So, after a bad day and one too many mojitos, Katie starts making a list of things a girl like her would never do, not in a million years . . .

As a tattoo artist with a monster motorcycle, Chase Trepasso isn't the kind of guy you bring home to mom and dad.

And when he finds Katie's list in a bar, he's more than happy to help her check off a few items. Especially the ones on the naughtier side . . .

Katie's more than tempted by Chase's offer, as long as they keep things uncomplicated. But as they spend more time together, she may just wind up breaking the most important rule of all: Good girls don't fall in love with bad boys.

Katie Conners is a good girl. At least that’s the way everyone in town sees her. Because she’s such a sweet, good girl, it’s easy for everyone to take advantage of her, including her ex-boyfriend. But that’s all about to change. That is if Katie has anything to say about it – maybe.

Enter Chase Trepasso, monster motorcycle riding, sexy tattoo artist who seems to be the exact opposite of Katie. She’s noticed him but never imagines that he’s noticed her until the night, she drinks too much and makes a list of things that her mother never would have approved. Chase snatches up her list and mortified, she runs off. The next day with a bit more bravado, she decides to tell him off only to have him offer up to help her check off the items on her list.

With Chase’s willing help as well as that of another newcomer to town, Becca Easter, Katie starts checking off her list of THINGS GOOD GIRLS DON’T DO. Becca is the owner of Sweet Tart’s Boutique, which boasts adorable sexy clothes, intimate apparel, as well as a black-curtained area in the back of the store that has all of the women intrigued including the prudish and overbearing bane in Katie’s backside – Mrs. Andrews. Becca fast became one of my favorite characters.

THINGS GOOD GIRLS DON’T DO by Codi Gary is an absolute delight from beginning to end with an absolutely, cheer-worthy scene in the middle where Katie wields a baseball bat and a truck plays the victim. Codi creates a town filled with typical characters but they play out so life-like that you’ll definitely recognize each one from somewhere in your life. Chase is a sexy bad boy hero but we quickly uncover the softer, more sensitive, and certainly more intelligent side of him. By the end of this sensational contemporary romance about small town life and gossipy neighbors, you’ll fall completely in love with this sexy, monster motorcycle riding, tattoo artist who shows Katie he’s got a romantic side that would melt the shorts off the toughest reader.

I highly recommend THINGS GOOD GIRLS DON’T DO by Codi Gary to anyone, and I mean absolutely anyone, who loves a truly wonderful love story with a modicum of steam but a whole lot of fun, cheers, and romance.

Happy Reading Everyone!
