Add this book to your Goodreads account!
Bad Girls Don't Marry Marines is book #3 in author Codi Gary's Rock Canyon series. This is a stand alone contemporary read that was enjoyable and bright. I kind of wanted Valerie to be a little more... bad. I actually liked her a little more than I expected to initially from the title. I empathized with her and felt frustration in the way she was treated by those around her. Justin is the hero that never gives up. This guy has the patience of a saint and no matter how many times Val tries to pretend she's not interested he doesn't give up.  In the words of Benjamin Franklin- "Energy and persistence conquer all things."

Bad Girls Don't Marry Marines is well written and will definitely appeal to fans of a traditional contemporary romance. I think this series if could potentially go head to head with Susan Mallery's Fools Gold series. Rock Canyon has a unique plethora of residents that help give the story that sense of community that makes for a good series set in a small town.

I became a Codi Gary fan after reading the first book in this series, Things Good Girls Don't Do and even more a fan after reading Good Girls Don't Date Rock stars. She is a relatively new author for me, but the start to this series has earned it a spot on my bookcase.  I can't wait to see what else she has in store for Rock Canyon.
