Book Description

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.

Editorial Reviews


“Readers will commiserate with the characters’ contempt for Valentine’s Day, but these three charming stories will change the hearts of even the most hardened cynics.” (Library Journal)

“A captivating romance that is the perfect read for a day at the beach, a cozy bed late at night, or flying through the sky.” (Library Journal)

“Made me laugh, cry, and literally fall in love!” (Candis Terry, author of ANYTHING BUT SWEET)

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful HEA. September 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ive read it twice! February 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. I stumbled upon it while I was between books. As soon as I finished reading it I searched for anything and everything else written by Codi Gary, that I could get my hands on. I am not the type of person to just hand out 5 start ratings. I read a lots of adult romance/erotic romance/paranormal romance books, about 3 per week. The characters felt real, the relationship felt organic. It was hot and romantic. My advice is just read it, you wont be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy & Fun story November 29, 2013
By P. Phan
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great find from Fresh Fiction! May 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I just recently discovered this author on Fresh Fiction. This is the first book I've read by her, and let me tell you, I am SO glad that I did! Reading it kept me up until 3:45 am to finish.

Katie is a good girl. She's well respected, always helps out a friend in need, and does the right thing. She's become tired of always biting her tongue and taking the high road. One evening she makes a list of all the things she wants to do if she could just step out of her good girl persona. Her mother raised her right, so she's afraid to break that mold.

Roaring into town on his chopper is the bad boy Chase. He's the bachelor tattoo artist and subject of the small town gossip mill. He knows how people regard him, but he doesn't let it bring him down. He's too busy chasing a more racy kind of woman, and knows he probably shouldn't waste his time on a good two shoes like Katie.

Everything changes when he sees Katie sitting alone at a bar completely lost in thought and jotting down a list on a napkin. Chase snatches it up and decides that he needs to help Katie check off a few items on her list of 'things that good girls shouldn't do.' Can Katie throw aside everything she was taught by her rigid mother and let loose just a little? Chase sure wants to help her try, because he see more clearly into who she really is. Chase isn't really the bad guy that people make him out to be, and Katie helps to show that people shouldn't judge a person based on appearances and preconceived notions.

I liked the character development in Katie. She grows so much as a person as she strengthens her back bone. I like the transformation in Chase as helps Katie come out of her shell. The plot line flows well, and the cast is very relatable. I really like some of the characters that have smaller roles and would enjoy seeing them have their story told, as well. I can't wait to read the next book in the series!
