My first book by Nina Cordoba. I loved it. This book is funny, sexy, angst, funny, a little heartbreaking, funny, hot-hot-hot adonis.
Paige was born and raised in a sheltered, snob, country club life. Her husband was killed last year in a car accident. She gradually finds out that he was a sex addict and went to hookers several times a day. So to get even with her husband from the grave Paige decides to go out-of-character and have a one night stand.
She goes to a dive bar named, D.O.A., in the next town so she wont' be spotted by the country clubbers. This is where she meets Dillon the adonis. Paige is a 'fish out of water' in this bar and her conversation with Dillon is HILARIOUS!
Without giving anything away:
- Paige has her one HOT night stand with Dillon
- They meet by chance a few months later and start dating
- Paige struggles between the confinements of her life style and dating a guy who's not only rich but of the proper social standing
- Paige also finds out many more devious acts her late husband has committed
It's great to see Paige go from being a naive, controlled, door mat to becoming a strong, self aware, confident woman.
I gave the story 4 stars because there was more inner dialogue with Paige struggling between her life style and Dillon than I cared for. It got a little irritating for me but not so much that I won't listen to this book again and again.
Susannah Jones gave an all emotions performance; male and female voices, many characters...great job!
I took a chance on this book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Absolutely worth a credit.

NO MORE MR. NICE GIRL is a stand-alone romantic comedy.
Audiobooks are how I make the commute to and from work (an hour each way) more bearable each day. I found myself turning this one on even when I wasn’t in the car!
As always, in an audiobook I want to mention the narrator. Susannah Jones has a marvelous acting ability that brought all of the characters to life. Her tempo was appropriate for the mood of each scene – some quick, some slow – so that I was never bored or distracted.
I loved this story. Paige Tipton embodies every woman who has been done wrong by the ex (whether by divorce or widowhood). Luckily, when she goes flirting with danger, she finds Dillon instead.
I loved how right they were for each other right from the start. He was a little bit bad boy with a heart of gold. She was the dream fantasy of his youth. He was supportive though hesitant to trust. She was finally realizing the world she had grown up in wasn’t as perfect as she had been force-fed to believe.
While many will rally around Dillon’s words, “you’ve got this, Candy Cane,” I found the sentiment of, “Go where you are appreciated” to be much more empowering. In the end – and I hope this isn’t too much of a spoiler – that’s what Paige grabbed onto as well.
I’m looking forward to reading or listening to many more books from Nina Cordoba!
Note: while I was given this book as a gifted Audio book, my opinions are my own and are given freely.
What was one of the most memorable moments of No More Mr. Nice Girl?
When Paige attacked the Jeffrey’s headstone… and Tina took off her heels, sat down in her yellow Versace pants, and helped her finish the job. Tina is a true BFF
Which scene was your favorite?
Dillon’s final note – and his final words – because we always need to know that someone believes in us enough to remind us that “you got this, Candy Cane.”
