Jaine Diamond – Dirty Like Us (Dirty Series #0.5)

REVIEW

Hands Down – A 5 STAR Book. It was a fantastically fun page turner. It was better than even being a guest at Zane and Maggie’s event. In this short novella, the author covers every emotional angle from each character’s perspective without repeating the characters’ thoughts but also not skimming over what could be complicated feelings. It was fun, filled with humor, and had an excellent dose of hot and sexy. I’m not usually a fan of novellas, but this author ROCKED IT! I can’t wait to continue with this series!

BLURB

What happens in Vegas… better stay in Vegas. Maggie Omura has never been a gambling woman. As assistant manager of Dirty, the hottest rock band on the planet, she brings order to the lives of four crazy-ass rock stars. But when the band lands in Vegas, a streak of bad luck lands Maggie in a bind—and in the penthouse suite, with the last man she’d ever want for a roommate. Zane Traynor, lead singer of Dirty. Rock god. Sex god. Total nightmare for women. And the only man who’d make Maggie a proposal so insane it just might work. A night of chance. An irresistible gamble… It’s time for Zane and Maggie to go all in.

Jaine Diamond – Dirty Like Brody (Dirty, Book 2)

REVIEW

I love love love this book! Without a doubt a 5 star book. As a reader, I was pulling for Brody and Jessa to get together from the first page. I was rooting for Jessa in spite of the fact that she was a supermodel. Typically, that I would automatically hate this kind of character. However, she was riddled with self esteem issues that made her real and likable. I respected Brody as his internal compass always pointed North, even if he walked along a diverted path.

There’s heat and angst in spades! I love how we learn about the progression of their relationship through the years that started during the age of adolescence. The way the characters acted were age appropriate throughout the book.

There are plenty of unexpected turns in this book. And don’t bother trying to guess the ending – great ending.

BLURB

He was all she ever wanted. Then she broke his heart…

As longtime manager of Dirty, the hottest rock band on the planet, gorgeous and brooding Brody Mason has had his share of beautiful women. Yet the only one he’s ever wanted is the one he never had—the one who tore his heart out.

Beautiful and elusive Jessa Mayes appears to have it all. Talent, money, and a glamorous life. But she also has a secret. Six years ago, she ran away—from her dream career as a songwriter with Dirty, and the only man she’s ever loved—without telling anyone why.

Now Jessa’s doing the one thing she swore she’d never do. She’s coming home—to be a bridesmaid in her brother’s rock star wedding… and face the mistakes of her past.

It won’t be easy.

Love this intense never is.

Dirty Like Brody is the second full-length novel in the Dirty series—a rockstar romance series about the members of the rock band Dirty and the women and men who love them.

Novels in the Dirty series are interconnected standalones, each with an HEA. (There are ongoing storylines that develop throughout the series, so reading them in order is not crucial but is recommended.)

Olivia Cunning – Outsider (Exodus World Tour – Volume 2)

REVIEW

This review is months overdue, which is no indication on how much I enjoyed this book. If you have read my other reviews of the Sinners on Tour series, you would know that I am a huge Trey fan. I was thrilled to finally get to see the threesome of Trey, Reagan, and Ethan find their happily ever after. Based on the characters state of distress and lack of comfort with their sexuality, the majority of this book focuses on Reagan and Ethan. Each of them had to trudge uphill to openly embrace their relationships. I enjoyed the story but would have liked it more if Trey was more of the focus. Also, I didn’t think the ending was befitting the characters. While I savored the story, I was a bit disappointed. Nonetheless, I still would categorize this as a MUST READ book for fans of the series.

BLURB

Reagan Elliot should be living her dream…

She’s touring with Exodus End as their new rhythm guitarist and gaining more notoriety and fame than she ever imagined possible.

She’s earned the devoted love of not only one, but two spectacular men. Her committed threesome with sexy guitarist Trey Mills and her hunky bodyguard Ethan Conner is stable, loving, deep, and satisfying for all involved.

But sometimes the world sees things differently and is determined to destroy what it doesn’t understand.

Can Reagan’s relationship with Trey and Ethan survive the cruel backlash of the media, her family, and a bigoted public? Or will the talented musician lose everything she holds dear in the face of her own burgeoning doubts?

Outsider is the second book in the Exodus End World Tour series. It’s also the sequel to Double Time, the fifth book in the Sinners on Tour series.

REVIEW

Jessie and Katie make a delicious couple. Katie has that cherry-vanilla scent that Jessie wants to eat up. Their public displays of affection are crazy hot.

The thing that makes this story great is the fact that that the crux of all relationships is whether or not feelings are mutual. There’s both fear and safety in not actually knowing the answer to that question. Both Jessie and Katie have reason to question the motives of one another. The angst in Katie’s heart and Jessie’s passion drive this story.

Their is also a strong element of music throughout the book that really makes the story come alive.

BLURB

A gorgeous rock star. An indecent proposal. How can a girl resist?

Struggling barista Katie Bloom doesn’t even know who Jesse Mayes is until she inadvertently wins the coveted role of sex kitten in his hot new music video. But by the time she’s in bed with him, she knows his reputation.

Love maker. Heartbreaker.

Making out with a stranger in front of a camera crew isn’t how Katie imagined herself getting over a broken heart, but when Jesse touches her, sparks fly. The sex is fake but the chemistry is real, and soon the steamy video is blazing up the charts.

Then Jesse makes Katie an irresistible offer: act as his girlfriend for six weeks while he promotes his new album. The only catch? Their sizzling make-out sessions will be for the cameras only.
Which is fine with Katie, since she’s not about to trust her heart to rock’s most legendary lover. Her body? Maybe…

Kylie Scott – Dirty: A Dive Bar Novel

51nN11cJdOL.jpg

REVIEW

I was extremely excited when I picked up this novel because I loved Kylie Scott’s previous series, Stage Dive.  Unfortunately, this book didn’t inspire nearly the same enthusiasm that I had for Stage Dive.  This book isn’t bad by any means, but I would only give it 3 stars.  The plot line was slow. The steamy scenes were original but lacked intensity.  And, the insta-love didn’t quite work.  On the other hand, I really liked that the character Mal from the Stage Dive Series made an appearance.  Finally, the HEA rocked! (pun intended)

BLURB

Love—on the rocks….

The last thing Vaughan Hewson expects to find when he returns to his childhood home is a broken hearted bride in his shower, let alone the drama and chaos that come with her.

Lydia Green doesn’t know whether to scream or cry in a corner. Discovering the love of your life is having an affair on your wedding day is bad enough. Finding out it’s with his best man is another thing all together.

Just when this runaway bride has nowhere left to turn, a handsome stranger offers her a broad, muscular shoulder to cry on. Vaughan is the exact opposite of the picture perfect, respected businessmen she’s normally drawn to. This former musician-turned-bartender is rough around the edges and is facing his own crossroads. But Lydia’s already tried Mr. Right and discovered he’s all wrong–maybe it’s time to give Mr. Right Now a chance.

After all, what’s wrong with getting dirty?

Dirty is the first book in the Dive Bar series from bestselling author Kylie Scott.

Week 3 – Hot Rock Star Heroes

Sinners on Tour

OMG!  These are perhaps some of the best characters ever! I refuse to admit how many times I’ve read this series – it really is that sensational.  The author wickedly turned five, hot, slutty, rock stars into lovable characters.  The only negative thing I can say is that Sinners at the Alter, left me dying to hear more about Trey’s story (the author notes that more will follow in other books – I’m crossing my fingers)

One Night With Sole Regret

For those that enjoy a high sex to story ratio, the second 3-story bundle is for you.  I guarantee that it won’t disappoint.  There are two more in the series, but I’m waiting for the next 3-story bundle to read (I have little patience waiting for the next story to get published). I hope I survive the wait.

Lauren Dane 

Brown Family

I want to be adopted into the Brown Family.  Each story is crazy exceptional.  There’s nothing that gets old about these stories.  These are a must purchase, but do not lend to a friend unless they sign a contract that they will return the book to you.  Laid Bare starts off the series with a bang, making you feel raw and exposed.  [Todd] “You’re bad for my self-control, Erin.  You make me want things I should’t want.” … [Erin] “Or maybe I make you want things you’ve always wanted and only now have a safe place to express them,” she challenged.  “Why shouldn’t you want them?  Why shouldn’t you get off on what gets you off?”  In addition, to some wild hot scenes, Lauren Dane draws out the reader’s appreciation for true love and acceptance.

Delicious Series

Great name for the series because each story is sinfully delicious.  This is an awesome extension from the Brown family, but great as a stand alone series too.  The friendship between all the women in this series can seriously make a person jealous.

REVIEW

Holy HOT sex scenes.  The scenes make this book worthy of reading multiple times.  (If you’re into things that come in multiples.)

On a secondary note, I truly liked how the book addressed the mental illness issues.  The way in which the illness affected the relationships seemed very realistic.

Each character was distinct and interesting.  Despite Nate being a rock star, he seemed to have a sincere level of love, respect, and chemistry with Cam and Theo that seemed deeper than typical artificial rock star heroes.  Theo seemed to be genuine in his feelings and the way he acted.  Cam was an curious contradiction.  His career seem very contrary to his uses.  I would never have expected a masseuse to be plagued with such issues.

While I felt like the middle was a bit slow, the resolution was very well done.

LOVE the EPILOGUE!

BLURB

Three’s a disaster when things come unraveled.

Rock star Nate Keller is on top of the world, but his headlining tour has one drawback. It keeps him away from his boyfriends, Theo and Cameron, for weeks at a time. Yet after four-and-a-half years—and a lot of hard work—the trio is still going strong.

But then Cam comes to visit with devastating news. After seventeen years together, he and Theo have agreed to a trial separation. Nate tries desperately to fix his lovers’ broken relationship, but there’s only so much he can do from the road.

At home, Cam tries to carry on, but feels like his whole life is spiraling out of control. Theo struggles to cope with the split as his depression worsens. They’re both spinning their wheels, quickly losing hope they can keep it together—and keep the man they both still love.

Desperate, Nate drops everything in a last-ditch attempt to pull their trio back together before they hit rock bottom. Except their love could already be shattered beyond repair.

Warning: Contains two men who must face how broken they are before they can fix their failing marriage, and the man who loves them both—but doesn’t know how to save them.
