Review of Dirty Like Zane (Dirty #6) by Jaine Diamond

“Gorgeous. Dangerous. Dirty’s lead singer. My legal Husband.”

 

Genre:  Rock Star Romance

Length: 409 Pages

POV: Alternating First Person

Description:

Zane and Maggie have been living a lie…

A marriage that’s not really a marriage.
A relationship that’s about as f*cked-up as they come.
A secret that’s going to kill them both if they don’t sort their sh*t out, stat.

And now they’re going on tour with Dirty. As the band’s assistant manager, Maggie knows she has to keep it professional—and keep away from her “husband” on the road.

Zane Traynor, Dirty’s hot-as-hell lead singer.
Womanizing rock star.
A man hellbent on getting Maggie back in his bed.

The one man Maggie knows she can never let herself fall for.
Except that she already has…
And when Zane finds out her feelings for him are real? It’s gonna get dirty.

Dirty Like Zane is the conclusion to Zane and Maggie’s white-hot love story. It’s the sixth full-length novel and the FINAL book 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; other books (novella/story collection) are not HEA, but are essential pieces of the overall story arcs. (There are ongoing storylines that develop throughout the series; reading them in order is not crucial but is HIGHLY recommended.)

*Note: Before reading Dirty Like Zane, be sure to read Zane and Maggie’s story in Dirty Like Us (Dirty #0.5) and A Dirty Wedding Night (Dirty #2.5) (story #2, A Dirty Secret).

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received an ARC of this book free from the author.*

If you’ve been reading the Dirty series like I have then I bet you are as excited for this book as I was. Ever since Dirty Like Us when Zane and Maggie got married in Vegas they’ve been slowly killing me. Every interaction since then has had me yearning to know what’s going on with them. Trust me, this book did not let me down.

The divide between love and hate is sometimes a very fine line.

Maggie has always been in love with Zane, but to her he’s too similar to her father. And she will not become her mother. She wouldn’t survive the broken heart. So instead of acting as the wife she is she tries to pretend the vows meant nothing and continue on as normal. Only problem with that is she would love nothing more than to be his wife.

“Men get smarter when they don’t have sex, and women get stupider?”

Zane knew the wedding wasn’t a farce. He wanted to marry Maggie. He wants to be the husband she deserves. The only problem is that he doesn’t even know where to begin. He knows she’ll fall for his charm whenever they’re alone, so he’ll use that to his advantage, but eventually she’ll start to hate him for her weakness.

“This girl…everything about this woman was my kryptonite.”

The one thing that’ll save this marriage…Zane will have to man up and face his truths. He can’t hide in denial forever.

“Me: Please don’t ever drink again. Please don’t smoke pot anymore. Please don’t sleep with other women. Please just stop.

Zane: please be my wife” – This has to be my favorite text exchange between them.

Dirty Like Zane is the conclusion to the Dirty series and it’s been one hell of a ride. Jaine Diamond you rock! I’m looking forward to finally reading Ash’s story in the spinoff series coming in 2019.
