About the Book
From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes SMART TASS, a new Romantic Comedy.
He’s the hot quarterback all the girls want.
She’s the smart girl he loves to pick on.
And now that they’re all grown up, things are about to get geekin’ ugly…
My name is Tass. I’m smart, I’m driven, and I am determined not to let prankster Hunter Johnson continue raining on my parade. When we were little, he’d pull my hair and call me names. When we were teenagers, he’d throw food and tease me for being a flat-chested virgin.
But now that we’ve ended up at the same college, he’s out of his hot head if he thinks he can keep messing with my life. It’s like he’s fixated on me or something. Well, guess what, Mr. Amazefootball? I’m not that geeky little girl anymore and you do not screw with a smart woman.
So what’s my plan?
It’s definitely wild, and he’s about to find out…
I look at my pink low-top Converse, then at him, and back to the shoes. “Give me one good reason why I should help you?” Because I really, really need one. Especially since I feel like a complete moron for actually wanting to help him. It’s like I can’t resist rescuing the stray puppy who’s bitten me a thousand times.
“We’d be helping each other,” he explains. “I need a much cheaper place to live and you want to get into the Tri-Kapps.”
“Ah!” I say, holding up my index finger. “But do I want it badly enough to let everyone think you’ve taken my pristine chariot out for its maiden voyage?”
“What would you like me to call it? My vaginal membrane? My cherry? My flower of purity? The winner’s ribbon for my hump-day race?”
His handsome face contorts. “Chariot works.”
“Great. And you’re still not riding it.”
“I didn’t ask to. It’s just something we’ll let people think so I get the points. In exchange, for the next few weeks, I’ll dote when we’re around your uptight, intellectual elitist sorority sisters. And then you dump me. Simple.”
I give it some thought—what it would mean to allow the blemish on my reputation.
“Come on, Tass. You know this is the best option for us both. Paweeeze?”
I look at Hunter, who has giant blue, anime-saucer eyes and a lower lip that’s pouting for its life.
“No.” I shake my finger at him. “Not the puppy face, Hunter.”
He tugs on the hem of my T-shirt, his lower lip quivering. “Tassie…”
“Ugh. You are so juvenile. You know that, right?”
His face returns to its normal, annoyingly handsome perfection. “Yes. And thank you. You’re making the right choice.”
“Wait. I didn’t agree to—”
He leans down and plants a big wet, closed-mouth kiss on my lips.

Mimi Jean Pamfiloff is a New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of Paranormal and Contemporary Romance. Both traditionally and independently published, Mimi has sold over 800,000 books since publishing her 1st title in 2012, and she plans to spontaneously combust once she hits the one-million mark. Although she obtained her international MBA and worked for over 15 years in the corporate world, she believes that it’s never too late to come out of the romance-closet and follow your dreams.

She continues to hope that her books will inspire a leather pants comeback (for men) and that she might make you laugh when you need it most.
