Dee's review of Dirty Deeds by Lorelei James

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When good, clean fun just isn’t an option.

Just once, good girl Tate Cross wants to experience a red-hot, no-strings-attached affair. She’s temporarily left her graphic artist position in Denver to settle her aunt’s estate in Spearfish, South Dakota, but the city won’t let her sell the property until the landscaping is up to snuff. The Native American landscape contractor her friend highly recommends looks like he can meet all her needs, in the flowerbed and out.

Nathan LeBeau believes few women look at the Native American man beneath the filthy work clothes and hard hat. When Tate offers to trade art lessons for dirt work, the tempting subtext is as plain as the lettering on the side of Nathan’s truck. But in truth, he’s tired of relationships based solely on sex. His goal of proving he’s not completely hopeless in matters of the heart is second only to his dream of expanding his business.

It figures. Tate wants no-holds-barred sex right about the time the one-time Casanova wants a good old-fashioned romance. Bring on the battle of wills!

This book has been previously published.

Warning: A reformed bad boy who wants a taste of real love, and a good girl who wants just one taste of the wild side—and she’s willing to drive a hard bargain to get what she wants

I really liked a lot of things about this book. the flow was great, the H/h were both very relatable, likeable, and steamy when they got together. our secondary characters were just as good. Nathan is the over eager workaholic. Tate is the one being a purely physical relationship, not usually what we see in books, so it was a nice change. I loved how through Nathan's wants and determination, he made Tate see the plus side of romance. though I'm not a fan of the deception, I loved their relationship. he really is so perfect for her. though I would have loved to see more of a confrontation between Tate and Kathy, or Nathan and Kathy, maybe even Malcolm drama, but just a little something of them confronting the assholes who caused such emotional damage to these two.

Lorelei wrote a great book with this one. the flow was great, characters were good, we had character growth, a little drama, and the  plotline was realistic. I give this 4 hearts
