Review of Dirty Like Me (Dirty #1) by Jaine Diamond


The Perfect Mixture of Humor and Hotness


Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 301 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

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…

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Jesse Mayes is a rock star for the band Dirty. He is currently working on a solo project that he is putting everything he has into. Making music videos has never really been his thing. He just wants to be on stage doing what he loves.  Jesse is not attracted to the fans that just want something from him or want to get in his band members pants. But when he finds out that Katie has no idea who he is he is very interested.

Katie Bloom is a barista that is putting much struggling with everything in life right now. She is still dealing with a troubling past break up, her career is up in the air and she just misses her best friend. So what happens when you miss your best friend? You go to her job in the rain with pies.

Katie has no idea who anyone in the world is unless they are part of her family or friends. So when she meets Jesse Mays for the first time all she sees is a very sexy man that she cannot take her eyes off of. But when her friend tells her who he is she just brushes it off. She knows their music but not much anything else. That is until she is hired to be his girlfriend for his new music video. And then is very surprised when Jesse gives her a proposal that she cannot turn down. What is one way to grab life by the balls? Fake a relationship with one of the hottest rock stars you have ever seen.

Oh where do I start with this one? This book is funny, hot and a real page turner. I finished this book in one day. Only because I could not put it down. I was laughing at the way Katie and Jesse are with each other. The bets, the jealousy, the crazy ex’s, the lines that seem to get crossed are all a breath of fresh air. I loved every minute of reading this book. I cannot wait to read more of this series.

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

It’s been a long time since I’ve laughed this hard while reading. The entire first half of this book is filled with events and conversations that laughing so hard I cried.

Jesse Mayes is a rock star just trying to make a video, when Katie is thrust into this video by her best friend she has no clue what she’s doing. Acting – no. Pretending to act while convincing herself it’s not real – definite yes!

When Jesse shows up out of the blue to see Katie with a job offer she’d be stupid to refuse she wants to say no, but when her best friend shows up just in time to intervene and negotiate an even better deal she can’t exactly say no. Then begins the world of Katie, fake girlfriend to Jesse Mayes.

“Well, what good is an arm ornament if she doesn’t sparkle?”

Their relationship is intense. Each one trying to maintain professional boundaries until it comes abundantly clear that neither is having any luck with their resistance…hence a bet. Nothing like trying to make someone lose a bet so you can benefit.

“His hand snaked beneath the sheet; he placed it on the curve of my waist, his grip gently tightening, and drew me closer against him. The son of a bitch was spooning me. Naked.”

Dirty Like Me blends humor and horniness into one hell of a wild ride. I absolutely could not put this book down and I cannot wait to see what’s next in the Dirty series.

My Favorite Laughable Moments: There are many moments and picking one is a little tough, but the two that stands out above all others has to be the vibrator incident and the “Top Five Things Groupies Say to Jesse Mayes Outside a Show.” They’re both a mixture of intense sexual tension and hilarity.
