Codi Gary (Author)

Genre: Romance

Format: eBook and print


Gemma Carlson didn’t plan on waking up married.

She also didn’t count on running into her old flame—and her son’s father-turned-country rock star—Travis Bowers, followed by a night of drunken dares. Apparently one of those involved a ring on her finger and a vow … neither of which she intends to keep. Now with a hangover from hell, this good-girl-gone-bad knows there’s just one thing to do: run.

Travis has been all over the world, but Gemma has never been far from his thoughts. So when they had the chance to catch up over a few drinks, he didn’t hesitate. Of course, he didn’t expect it would lead to marriage, or a runaway bride! Travis finally has a second chance and doesn’t plan on losing Gemma again—or the son he didn’t know he had. He proposes, albeit belatedly, a date. Or rather, a few. If they can make this marriage work by starting over, he stays. If not …

Gemma’s not interested; she’s got a son to protect and a heart to heal. But having Travis around could make both a little easier. Still, good girls don’t date rock stars . . . right?

Buy this book from: Amazon | Barnes & Noble |


*sidenote* go get it girls and boys.

It’s full of Codi Gary trademark humor,

sweetness, sass and smexy times and I loved it!

Me: Tell me a bit about writing Gemma and Travis’ story in Good Girls Don’t Date Rock Stars and about book conventions! I loved that Gemma was at a book convention in Vegas. I’m totally going to RT (The Romantic Times Book Convention) in Vegas 2016 baby.
Codi: Whoo hooo, another place I won’t want to miss 😉 Well, Gemma and Travis are a bit like my very special baby. They were the main characters of my first finished romance novel and even though I rewrote their story into Good Girls Don’t Date Rock Stars, they have a special place in my heart. As far as Book Conventions go, Gemma owns a used book store and has always dreamed of writing historical romance. It’s her first conference, just like RWA in Atlanta last year was mine 😉 This year, I am lucky enough to hit RT in NOLA and RWA in San Antonio! I’m really bummed you aren’t going, btw *gives Kat pouty face*


Me: *sniffs* I am trying not to think about it. I would totally have pounced on you at RT and hugged the stuffing outa you! 😉 But I KNOW you will have so much fun!

Oh! Speaking of being a writing queen (tell me Dancing Queen is stuck in your head now too?) You have MORE book birthdays this year too! What can we look for next?


Bad Girls Don't Marry Marines (Rock Canyon Romance, #3)

Codi: Let’s see…Bad Girls Don’t Marry Marines is out May 20th, and features the very sexy Justin Silverton, and rich girl Valerie Willis. Val is definitely a different heroine from Gemma, Katie, and Ryan, BUT I’m hoping people will love her anyway.

In July (I think 8th) I Want Crazy, my second Loco, Texas book is releasing, and I am really excited because it’s Red’s story. When I wrote him, I was really surprised by the response readers had to him. They lurv him, as my friend Jackie Hatcher says. 😉

I Want Crazy

Then in November, Redeeming the Bad Boy releases, and this hero is going to be quite a bit darker than his predecessors. I am super excited for this story!

And in December, Loco, Texas #3 will be out 🙂

So yeah, busy year…..

codiMore Codi:

From the time I could put a cassette into my little stereo, books have held a fantastic distraction. When I was eleven, I decided I wanted to be one of those magical people that brought stories to life. Devouring a book a day sometimes, my first romance novel stuck with me. I’ve always been a sucker for a happy ending (and the great romantic gesture)and that’s what I try to put into my stories. I am so honored to be a part of Avon, and am so excited to have my own dreams coming true.
