What did I think? I’m still not quite sure…

I didn’t love this one, nor did I hate it either. It had all the makings to a great book for me, the writing was good, the characters intriguing, steamy, with fantastic world building. Yet somewhere along the way, it just fell flat. Not enough for me to put it down, but enough that it did take me longer than usual to finish it. I tend to rate books based on how unputdownable it is for me. While I was curious enough to finish it, I had no problems putting it down for a while to go back to it later.

My first love is PNR, considering the series that first sucked me into the wonderful world of books was Black Dagger Brotherhood. So I have a bit of a soft spot when it comes to PNR and discovering new authors.… Read more

Friday Feature and Follow

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read.
Each week there is one blog featured by each host and a question to help us break the ice and open discussion. This is my first Feature Follow and I’m so excited to meet new bloggers and make new friends.
Today’s Featured question is:

If you could only have one- one book- for the rest of your life. Don’t cheat…what would it be?

Oh man, what a question! This to a girl that has a hard time picking a favorite anything. Honestly, I’m lucky to be able to get dressed each morning because I’m a horrible decision maker. Really! Just ask my husband! Actually, probably better that you don’t…he’d go off on a tangent LOL! 
But I digress. 
If I had to pick just one, I’d pick a book based on the amount of times I’ve reread it.… Read more

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars



“Death is the only thing that could ever tear us apart, and even that would fail. Somehow, some way, I would find you.

ALL ABOARD!The crazy Train!

Calling all passengers! Calling all passengers!
This is your final call to board the crazy train, destination…fuck if I know!

Please be advised that you may find parts of your journey disturbing, fucked up, and probably unlike any other ride you’ve ever taken.

I would like to take this time to introduce you to your fellow passengers.
First, let’s meet Taylor

No need to apologize just yet Taylor…or do…whatever. Passengers are advised to attempt and disregard her sporadic crying, apologizing for shit she didn’t really do, and for just generally being a naive girl that will act like a wounded puppy for the duration of our trip.

Let’s now move on to Sebastian, shall we?… Read more

A sexy and poignant new adult novel from New York Times bestseller Marata Eros, about two lost souls who find each other in the wake of tragedy, only to learn that love may not be enough to heal the wounds of a dark and tortured past…

Twenty year-old Brooke Starr has escaped the aftermath of a brutal tragedy by abandoning her music studies and moving north to take a summer position as a part-time deck hand on a deep-sea fishing boat.

Savage Rhythm by Chloe Cox

Savage Rhythm (Club Volare, #6)Savage Rhythm by Chloe Cox
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

You’ll burn baby. You’ll burn. For me.

So it’s really no secret that I love a good BDSM romance. Know why?

While the dynamic between Declan and Molly is that of a D/s, I’d call this book BDSM lite :). It was a sexy romance, but there wasn’t heavy BDSM elements like you’d find in say, Cherise Sinclair or Kallypso Masters. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy the hell out of it. Because I have definitely found me a new author to read. This was my first book in the series, and I’ll definitely be going back to read the rest of them now. I’m hooked!

Declan is the lead singer of Savage Heart. A few months ago, after an incident in Philadelphia that’s shrouded in mystery, caused Declan to throw out his best friend and lead guitarist, Sorren, out of the band.… Read more

Tuesday Man Candy

It’s Tuesday again. It’s not quite as bad as Monday, and it’s not quite Hump Day. It just is. It’s just Meh. 
So here at Dirty Girl Romance blog, I’d like to designate it to be the official Man Candy Day. So my darlings, grab a change of underwear and some napkins for your drool and feast your eyes on the deliciousness that is Roman Dawidoff. 
Who is he, you ask? Does it really matter? 🙂
But OK, I’ll appease your curiosity. He just happens to be a fitness model, as well as one of the very yummy “faces” of ES underwear.

What are you doing sitting there and staring? The man is all wet now! Get to licking him dry 😉

ARC review: Reckless by Skye Jordan

Reckless (Renegades, #1)Reckless by Skye Jordan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5+ Panty-melting Stars







If this was passion, it was more intense that anything she’d ever felt. Overwhelming. Obsessive. Dark

So if my inner dirty girl had an imaginary interview with the characters of this book, wonder what it would go like?
Well no need to wonder, because I’ll appease your curiosity.

All character quotes came directly from the book, I’m not that creative 😉

ME:
So Jex, you’ve just been screwed over yet again by a beautiful woman that used you for your connections as a famous stuntman in the movie industry. How does that make you feel?

JAX:
I’m so sick of this bullshit.

ME:
Uh huh…Uh huh…I can understand that. Do you think it has something to do with the fact that you tend to pick your women just based on the fact that they’re good looking? OK, no need to glare at me…moving on.… Read more

ARC review: Maverick by Anna Cruise

MaverickMaverick by Anna Cruise
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The ocean was an extension of myself, the only place where I could find solace and peace. And even though I’d lost my best friend to it, I couldn’t let it go, couldn’t turn my back to it. I couldn’t exist without it.

There was something in his voice, in his eyes, something that hinted there really was more to him than the public persona I’d read about. He was damaged.

If I’m being honest here, what initially drew me in to read this was the hot cover. What? Like you’ve never done that! Please!

I was so happy to find that this book was filled with more depth than I had when I was choosing it. 🙂

Kellan Handler is a professional surfer. It is all he’s ever dreamed of doing, and the ocean is the only thing that is able to give him peace.… Read more

Rock Chick Revolution by Kristen Ashley

Rock Chick Revolution (Rock Chick, #8)Rock Chick Revolution by Kristen Ashley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 Rock Chick Stars












“You’ve got your way, the way you are and the way you are with the ones you care about. And that tells me, a man gets in there, you give that to him, the children you give him, that man will be all kinds of lucky. And I’ve decided we’re gonna see if that man is me.”

Well, Ava & Luke and Sadie & Hector still hold first place for my favorite Rock Chick couple, but I have to admit that Ally and Ren definitely came in at a very close second.

I can’t say that this was my favorite book in the series, but I will tell you that it was a fantastic conclusion to the series.

So what was my favorite part of Rock Chick Revolution, you ask? I have a one word answer for that: REN.… Read more
