Blog Tour ~ The Trouble with Sexy by Codi Gary ARC Review, Excerpt, Giveaway

The Trouble With Sexy
Codi Gary

Release Date: February 10, 2015

Fact: Ryan Ashton has never been the hottest girl in the room.

Prim and proper doesn't really lend itself to sexy, but Ryan's okay with that. She's come to terms with her perpetual single status. Or at least she would have, if it weren't for her deliciously gorgeous boss.

Fact: Gregg Phillips is sex on a stick.

And Ryan knows that if she wants him to sit up and take notice of her, she's gotta take a chance … and ditch the frumpy librarian look she's been rocking for way too long. It's gonna take a whole new wardrobe and the help of the local sex kitten to make it happen, but Ryan's up for it. After all, true love is worth the trouble—and that's a fact.

Previously appeared in the anthology Kiss Me.

This is my honest review
Rating: 4 Stars - LOVED

An adorable Valentine’s friends-to-lovers novella!

Ryan is 26 and ready to find that special someone. She’s fallen hard for her boss, Greg, since the day she met him. Ryan enlists help to change her plain Jane look on the outside thinking that’s what it takes to get Gregg to finally notice her.

I found The Trouble With Sexy to be an adorable Valentine-themed novella! I loved the small-town feel in the story with everyone knowing each other and the gossip among friends. Gregg is portrayed as more Ryan’s friend than her boss, and they have this super comfortable friendship. Codi Gary did a great job putting the two of them in mixed-signals type of situations.  I liked that Ryan and Gregg are both passionate in not only their photography jobs, but also in their friendship. I wouldn’t mind reading more about them. A short and fun read!

"Listen to you gossiping like one of the girls. Gracie has not dated every eligible guy."
"Okay, not every guy. Only the cute ones," she teased.
Gregg's face split into a teasing smile. "Are you calling me cute?"
She scoffed. "Of course. You know you're adorable."
"Well geez, that's sweet. Next time try not to sound so disgusted."
Ryan had been going for nonchalant, not disgusted. Gregg was far from disgusting and much more than adorable. His sun-streaked brown was a little long at the moment, resting just over the top of his ears. He had olive skin that tanned easily, and his eyes were a rich hazel with flecks of gold and green. They were adorned with thick eyelashes Ryan thought were a waste on any man and she often grumbled about it. His straight aquiline nose sat perfectly centered over full lips and a gorgeous, easy smile. He could have been a cocky ass, but he was actually one of the nicest guys she'd ever met. Gregg was one of the few people that she'd just clicked with instantaneously, and she valued him as a friend.

An obsessive bookworm, CODI GARY likes to write sexy small-town contemporary romances with humor, grand gestures, and blush-worthy moments. When she’s not writing, she can be found reading her favorite authors, squealing over her must-watch shows, and playing with her children. She lives in Idaho with her family.
