JUST A LITTLE HARMLESS SASS by Codi Gary


- SYNOPSIS - 

Twilight, Idaho, is all Greer Kimble knows. Despite the rumors and fear-inducing campfire stories, she's never seen a wolf in her hometown woods. But then a tumble roughs her up and puts her face-to-face with the most beautiful creature she's even seen. One moment she's looking at a mesmerizing beast, and the next she's in the arms of a sexy stranger with eerily familiar electric-blue eyes. And now she's caught in a war between fear and lust.

Beautiful, curvy, and sassy as hell, Greer is everything Xander Thorson craves in a mate. But he can't allow a distraction like desire to compromise his mission to track a pair of rogue shifters who murdered his family. Hunting justice, thirsty for vengeance, he needs to stay focused. Getting involved with a woman who challenges him at every turn is as dangerous as it is reckless.

Xander's vow to stay away from Greer shatters when the shifters target her to get to him. He'll do anything to protect her...even if it means making her his.



- MY THOUGHTS - 

I'm a huge fan of Codi Gary's small town romances and her first paranormal romance, JUST A LITTLE HARMLESS SASS, still brings all those fun details to the table. It still felt like the focus was really on the characters, their fears and past struggles, their sass and determination and their road to falling in love despite the dangerous situation they find themselves in. Greer and Xander are drawn to each other from the very start and although they are a bit hesitant to start anything at first, they quickly learn that they can't resist each other. 

And boy is it hot as hell when these two do get together! I really appreciate the use of more explicit words in sex scenes (when they're built up to and used in the right context, of course) and loved that things weren't just glossed over like you sometimes find in romances. I don't know about you but if I'm investing my time is getting pulled into a romance and seeing the emotion and passion blossom, I want to really immerse myself in the experience and get the dirty details when things finally heat up. I thought the love scenes in this novel were hot as hell, without being over the top or forced. It was a tiny bit more overt than you might find in some of Codi Gary's other work, but I was eating it up and can't wait for more scenes like this in future novels. 


I really appreciated that Greer was a curvy woman, who was described as having a rounded belly and hips. I do love me a sassy, curvy heroine! Both her personality and Xander's were really endearing and I just wish I had gotten more time to get to know them further. As with any Codi Gary romance, the supporting characters have their own charm that pulls you in and makes you crave their own story. I'm craving Jill's story next and would love to learn more about the town and the people who live in it. The author threw in some really cute quirks that just make me want to jump back in and explore. 


JUST A LITTLE HARMLESS SASS was a seriously satisfying read that I couldn't put down. I devoured the whole thing in one sitting and it just left me wanting more of Twilight, Idaho. I know this is a bit of a departure from Codi Gary's typical work, but I think if you love her other romances, you'll definitely still find all the elements you love in her new paranormal romance. It's still got that wonderfully quirky small town flare, but with a paranormal kick that will make you crave a werewolf boyfriend of your very own.
