Tass (Did I miss an explanation on her name) and Hunter Johnson have known each other since pre-school. They are neighbors, started kindergarten together, graduated together, and now they are freshman at the same college on different scholarships. Tass is the brainiac and Hunter is the athlete, and while the romantic set up, a nerd vs. jock love/hate romance, has been done many times before, the climax-conflict is fairly predictable, and there’s a little suspension of disbelief required; there are sufficient reveals in the story to keep you guessing, the writing is smooth, and the characters are engaging. (I was up reading way past my bedtime).
Told via Tass’s sole first person POV, Tass is a dedicated book worm, but she’s no shy wallflower. It’s always refreshing to get a cleaver, strong, and determined heroine. Tass dishes it out as much as she takes it. Hunter’s the outgoing, show-off jock on the outside, but it isn’t hard to see the vulnerable interior he also sports. I really found him a cute with more integrity than he let on and much to offer once he came into his own.
Hunter and Tass get a major A in chemistry! Their interactions even when tormenting each other elicit sexual tension, and under their humorous banter is a strong spark. But Tass and Hunter’s insults, pranks, and torments are coming to a head and how they really feel about each other and whether they know it or not is the game that must be played out.
All in all, I liked both characters and the supporting ones as well. As new adult characters they are realistically flawed, influenced by their peers and parents, and confined by their social structures. There’s a bit of a coming of age element as the duo wrestle with their feelings, identity, and self-awareness. And while there is some drama of their own making, the tone isn’t angsty and the narrative stays light-hearted making it an enjoyable read. The themes of stereotyping, appearances can be deceiving, and judging are strong, but they provide a relevant message.
Now about the fornicating…it was hot and there’s plenty of build up, making you root for them to finally let their sexual frustrations out. But…the story needed more of it, and just when I thought we were getting another go-round, it ends abruptly. So I’m breaking out my puppy dog eyes and begging the author—paweeze write at least a novella HEA for these two from Hunter’s POV.
Smart Tass is the first book in the OHellNo series. The next book features Hunter’s friend Henry and Tass’s roommate Elle.
I absolutely love Tass and Hunter, even though this is not the kind of book I would normally go for, because the MCs are so young, but Mimi Jean Pamfiloff is one of my go-to authors so I figured I couldn't go wrong. These two young adults made me laugh out loud, they broke my heart with their childish behavior and they mended it all back together when they decided to bare themselves to one another. There were some surprises to be sure, because after all it wouldn't be a Pamfiloff story without them, but I love the side characters and the long history between them...forgiveness is a wonderful thing.
Touchdown! for book #1...I'm looking forward to more!
Tass and Hunter have been next door neighbors since they were kids, he was her bully and she was the unattainable. Now they are both in the same college and maybe it’s time to grow up and either move on or get even.
Tass is no shrinking violet she is a strong personality she just happens to be a nerd. She views Hunter as her bully from school but there have been softer moments between them that have always confused her.
Hunter is doing his best to hang onto his scholarship and make something of himself. His feeling for Tass have always been complicated but he’s sure of one thing, she is HIS.
My Love Hate Relationship.-
I loved the ‘different’ sort of nerd Mimi brought to the table and the scenes with Hunter’s puppy dog eyes were adorable. It was sweet and funny and everything you could want from a Romantic Comedy. I do wish there had been more sexy time but I totally understand why there wasn’t.
Writing – 5 sparkly pink pens
Violence- 1 punch (a few harsh words do not equate to fists and knives.)
Sex- 2 panty melters (Sex happened when it needed to and made sense and was well worth waiting for)
Romance- 4 Hunter will have your heart fluttering by the end.
Characters- 5 highly entertaining characters.

Tass and Hunter have known each other since they were little it wasn't until they started school did they realize how different they were. Tass is genius level brilliant and Hunter is a jock. Tass thought she was finally rid of Hunter after high school and 13 years of Hunter picking on her but he ended up in the same college as she did. Still it's a big campus she could avoid him but one stupid fraternity prank brings Hunter into her life again only to confuse and upset her plans. Can they work together to get what they both want or will their real feelings get in the way of things.
Overall, great read. Tass and Hunter are quite the pair. And also mild cliffhanger having to do with the side characters Elle and Henry who star in the next book.

Vote read, started off very good, and it reached a nice peak, but somewhere towards the end it became annoying.Read more
