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. Five Boundless Stars
This is the first book I've read of Gary's and I absolutely love it.
Katie is the good girl. She always followed her mom's rules but in the end. Where did that get her? Yes, she was loved by many in her small town. She had a satisfying career. But the one man that she trusted solely, broke her heart.
Chase moved to the small town to move somewhere smaller. Start his new tattoo shop and be an artist. But Katie catches his eye in many ways. He sees the good in her but as well as that little firecracker beyond the surface.
They both have a connection. I'm a sucker for girl meets boy/boy meets girl. This is a wonderful romance. They go into their relationship as casual but in the end. The only thing they need more is each other.
"It's not about how good you are or how many rules you follow. You just have to meet someone you can stand to love with for a lifetime and go for it."
There's always bumps in the road but that doesn't keep them from each other. I'm glad I was able to come across this story. I loved Katie, the "good girl" who became a woman. Not afraid to fight for what she wants.
