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.

My Review

Katie is a good girl. Her mother drilled those qualities into her. But after her boyfriend of 7 years dumps her and is going to marry the girl he cheated on her with Katie makes a list of all the “bad things” (according to her mother’s rules)she wants to do. When Chase the new owner of the town tattoo shop gets his hands on it he offers to help her out with the list. Katie takes him up on his offer. Will the Good Girl and the Bad Boy find they are each other’s perfect match?

I loved Katie. Her personality was of someone I could easily be friends with. She loves country music,chocolate,her cat,and Klaus from the Vampire Dairies. My kinda heroine. I do feel in some ways her mother smothered her personality and tried to make her into what her mother thought was the perfect women. I loved seeing Katie spread her wings and become her own person and not who her mother wanted her to be. Chase really helps bring out that side of Katie she has repressed for so long.

I love Chase. He acts like he is a tough guy who doesn’t care about what others think but he does. Lots of people in Chase’s life have told me he was good for nothing riff raff because he was poor,lived in trailer park,and became a tattoo artist. I lot of people have judged him and treated him badly. But Katie doesn’t see any of that just Chase. Chase and Katie were both very real characters that you feel you could meet in real life.

Chase and Katie’s sexual chemistry is so hot. Perfect amount of hot sex to story scenes. Some books have a struggle with that but this book didn’t. That Kissing Booth Scene made me swoon and fall head over heels for Chase. He is my new book boyfriend. I couldn’t put this book down and almost fell asleep on my kindle. Twice. I was very taken with the secondary characters and can’t wait to read their books. I loved the scene with everyone in Katie’s Salon. It had me laughing. OMG that ending was so romantic and perfect. This was my first book by this author and it will not be my last.
