Smart Tass is book one in the OHellNo series by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff. I’ve been a fan of Mimi Jean’s books forever. She never fails to amaze me with each new book or series. They are all so unique to one another, each one a complete new adventure. Such is the case with this new series. It is fun, yet has a serious side. It’s a little bit sexy and a lotta bit sassy.

What could be better and a hot jock and a sassy nerd falling in love? A jock and nerd who make me laugh, smile and in the end leave me with a huge smile and a story with a great moral at the end!

Got to be honest here this wasn't my favourite of this authors work.
Maybe because this was New Adult which really isn't usually my thing.
But I think my main issue here may have been that I wasn't really that keen on either main character.
I just found them not that likeable and because of this, I wasn't really that invested in their overall outcome together.
This is at its heart enemies to lovers type scenario.

Ahhh, revenge, a dish best served cold, right? To make it sweeter, Tass thinks she is finally going to get the upper hand in her lifelong dysfunctional relationship with hot jock Hunter Johnson. Too bad our little genius forgot that her heart would become part of the equation and just maybe there is more to “the Hunt” than rock hard abs, a pair of gorgeous eyes and a penchant for driving her crazy with his antics!

I tried, I really did, I generally like these types of books, and the other novel I read by this author was a five star read for me, but I know the title is a little word play but Smart Tass would have been much better titled Dumb (T)ass not quite as catchy, but sums up our heroine perfectly in my opinion, because for a supposedly highly intelligent College gal, she acts like an absolute idiot for the portion of the book I read.

4.5 Nerdy Stars!

I love me a good nerd book! Hunter and Tass have a love/hate relationship. Growing up as neighbors has put them in close proximity all through school. Hunter is the popular jock and Tass is the snarky nerd girl. It’s a classic case of boy picks on girl, girl snarls at boy.

If living next to each other isn’t enough, they both get scholarships to the same college and Tass finds that she can’t get away from Hunter. Things come to a head when Rush week for both Tass and Hunter finally
This book was such a surprise to me. I've read and enjoyed a couple of books by Mimi. It's been a little while and I'm so glad that I picked this up.
The book cover fooled me. A little cartoonish silhouette of the heroine had me thinking Chick Lit.
This is NOT Chick Lit. I would say NA. The time period is college- first year.
Tassie and Hunter grew up next door to each other. They are as different as night and day.
Tassie is really super smart and quirky. Hunter is a star quarterback of their col

A jock & a nerdy chick?!

One would think, for those who like this kind of trope, as I do, in fact...that there's nothing there that could go wrong in fulfilling this equation...

And yet again...I m here thinking...

Fuck, how the hell can you pull the heroine to look like a hateful little snob thinking she's actually the one being bullied by the jock...well, sure she is, but he s not the only one to blame for that, in this love/hate charade...and you still end up disliking the chick?! And actual

I really enjoyed Ms. Pamfiloff's Fugly series and the way she spun something different so I was interested in what she would bring to the table with this one.

This is a new adult series and the H/h are both in college. We find out that they grew up together and were best friends at first and then things went downhill and stayed there.

Tass' family are geniuses so she has high standards to live up to, one of which is getting into the smart girl's sorority. Unfortunately, that falls through

Tass (Did I miss an explanation on her name) and Hunter Johnson have known each other since pre-school. They are neighbors, started kindergarten together, graduated together, and now they are freshman at the same college on different scholarships. Tass is the brainiac and Hunter is the athlete, and while the romantic set up, a nerd vs. jock love/hate romance, has been done many times before, the climax-conflict is fairly predictable, and there’s a little suspension of disbelief require

I usually read this authors paranormal books but spotted this contemporary offering as a freebie and couldn't resist. Essentially it's a YA story about two students who have grown up as neighbours but have what you could almost describe as a love hate relationship. Tass is smart, privileged and trying oh so hard to be everything her parents want . Hunter is the quintessential 'jock' who has been the bane of her life but things are about to get even more complicated as frat house

A jock falling for the nerdy girl? That's my kind of book.
Unfortunately, 'Smart Tass' was a big fat disappointment.

The h, Tass, was such a judgmental idiot that I couldn't like her. She treats Hunter, who is really a good guy, so bad that there was no way for me to understand why he falls for her.

At one point Hunter calls her an 'emotional terrorist' and that's exactly what she is.

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

This first story in the OHellNo series is a change for Mimi, venturing into the YA realm. But while the genre for this tale may be a bit different, it also couldn’t be more identifiable as one of her books. It’s quirky and snarky and everything adorable that I’ve come to love in her writing.

Smart Tass takes the idea of the nerdy girl/jock romance and stands it on its head. Instead of the geek that takes off her glasses, gets a makeover and makes the star quarterback fall in love with her because

The Jock and the Geek were next door neighbours, once best friends now sworn enemies following years of verbal abuse on both sides, but are they really hiding their true feelings behind their antagonism!!!!

It is pretty obvious from the beginning that despite their words and actions, Hunter and Tassie are harbouring some very friendly feelings towards each other. However, there are a number of lingering issues between the pair that require a wrecking ball to knock them down before Hunter and Tass

Best Line: “Okay, right about now you’re probably asking yourself if I’m one of those nerdy girls who had a crush on the quarterback back in high school and got her heart decimated every time she saw him walking down the hall, because he didn’t actually see her. Oh hell no.”

Tessie and Hunter have a complicated past with lots of drama. Tess and Hunter are always teasing and pulling pranks on each other which results in them fighting with one another (until college where they start to stop this type of behavior). Their story had lots of pent up tension and feelings they both tried to cover up so they did not have to face it. Overall, Tess and Hunter started to fall in love and it was a slow romance.

This book’s been on my tbr for a while and I just found it on Amazon for 0.99 and grabbed it.
It was an interesting book. I enjoyed how strong and decided Tassie was, but she was kind of mean to Hunter without even realizing it. He had a bunch of reasons for what he did and what happened years ago.
I enjoyed reading it and I’m curious about the second book of the series, about Henry and Elle, Tassie’s roommate.
Anyway, good start for a series. It was my first by this author and I enjoyed it.

Mimi does it again!

I love Mimi's books! She has such a way with words!. Tass is a self proclaimed nerd, a virgin and she hates the boy next door. Or does she? Hunter and her have been "friends" all they lives and now they are at the same college. Throw in a bet from his frat and her need to get into the sorority she wants things are going to get interesting. Does she really hate him? Is she his "girl back home" and the reason he doesn't date? You'll have to read it to find out.

This was pretty average for a college romance- I thought the nerd thing was cute and there was a lot of good stuff about intellectual snobbery.
But I couldn’t get over the “ 50 points to fuck a virgin” hurdle requirement for joining a fraternity.
What is it with US college fraternities? If the future intellectuals and leaders come from these places, what hope is there for the world? And the #metoo movement can hang up its gloves- they won’t get any traction from these Neanderthal man-c

The story is not particularly original, but the book is funny and cute and I enjoyed it overall, even if the conflict after the night in Henry’s „cabin“ seems a little unnecessary (and therefore outrageous) and the events in the end were way over the top. Both heroes are very likable: Tass is a little nerdy, but not too unwordly, and quaterback Hunter isn’t the dumb and cocky jock he seems to be — in fact, he’s really, really gorgeous and caring.

I don't usually like books where the love interest picks on and abuses the main character. It just makes me a bit uncomfortable, but I thought I'd give this book a try because I love a good easy reading new adult book every now and then.

Review contains spoilers.

In the blurb I was lead to believe that Hunter is the mean jock who picks on the smart girl, and she’s about to stand her ground to pay him back for years of bullying.

From the start something wasn’t adding up. Hunter was defensive, and clearly holding something back.

I knew once they made that deal things were going to get messy, and they did. That’s also when the story picked up speed and flew towards the end. It felt so rushed I was actually reading faster than I norma

Oh, I love it when the jock falls hard for the nerd! Throw in some love/hate and I'm sold!

I adore the author's style, it's quirky, sassy, witty, cute and absolutely hilarious. The banter between Tass and Hunter was perfectly entertaining, the chemistry off the charts. I really liked that for once the nerdy female lead didn't just fall at the hot quarterback's feet, she gave back just as good as she got. Despite their differences in character, neither of them wanted the other to change, I guess t

Thank you Instagram friends for introducing me to this talented author. I cannot wait to read more of her books.

At first glance this seems like your typical nerd and jock hate to love romance, but we get so much more!!!!

Loved the banter between Hunter and Tass. They are freaking hilarious together! They grew up together and are neighbors. When they started kindergarten their "hate-games" began.

More like 2 stars. It had everything I usually like in an enemies-to-lovers trope. Next door neighbors. Teasing and pranking all through school. Opposite in every way - this time the nerd and the jock. That fine line between love and hate. So why 2 stars? The female MC, Tass. Told all from her POV, she was the most shallow, judgmental, stupid person ever. And that's saying a lot since she has a 140 IQ. For all her smarts she was vindictive, mean and horrible. Not that that excuses the male MC, ...more

I loved the concept behind this book and it started off great, but the last half had too many revelations and twists that could've been handled better, not just for maximum impact, but to bring huge chunks of the story together. Don't get me wrong, Tass and Hunter are a great couple and I really enjoyed their story. Maybe if there had been a chapter or two from Hunter's point of view it would've helped clear any remaining confusion and questions I had.
