Dirty Like Us takes a look at a couple who is keeping a secret. This is how it all started and I loved seeing it even it I saw it after I knew the secret. It’s interesting to see a bad boy who has a heart of gold, but the heroine doesn’t believe him at all. Vegas. Alcohol. Sleezy father. Joke or not?
Through the stories we have found that Maggie and Zane have secretly gotten married and aren’t telling anybody. Well few people …. just the ones we read about in the past books. It’s hard to believe these two are really married as much as you figure Maggie hates Zane. Jumping into the beginning of what happen to them gave me a sense of what happened.
Remember this story takes place before Dirty Like Me where Jessie meets Katie after having broken up with Elle. For those not following my reviews….Jessie is a guitarist in the band Dirty. Elle is the bassist. Zane is the lead singer and Maggie is the assistant to Brody. This book starts with an argument between Elle and Jessie forcing Maggie to give up her room to keep them apart. The hotel her father owns. The one hit wonder of a father hasn’t been much of a father, but he wants something. Something from Zane that Maggie won’t help him get what he wants. Since there aren’t anymore rooms and Zane has a suite, she takes a room with only one thought: to get laid. She has the guy picked out, and bought some sexy lingerie. And Zane shows up in the room with a bunch of bimbos, wrecks her sex adventure and does a turn around when he realized somethings up with Maggie. The Maggie he has been attracted to since the day he first met her. She just doesn’t really like him so they have sparks flying.
The big thing to know about Zane is he is a recovering alcoholic. There are some issues that really test Maggie’s confidence in herself, but also pushes her oh Hell no meter. Throw in a marriage proposal Maggie thinks is a joke to help her get back at her father, while Zane truly means every word he says.
This is a short story with some very hot scenes, some unrequited feelings, full of misgivings and a lot of oh fuck what the Hell did we do? Now I can’t wait to find out what happens to them.
Dirty Like Us is not a story you can get anywhere but signing up for the author’s newsletter. I did for the book, but I can also say you aren’t going to get spammed. Jaine Diamond has only sent me emails when she has news.
