New York Times bestselling author J. Daniels brings us the next book in her Dirty Deeds series.
Is this love or just a game?
Tori Rivera thinks Jamie McCade is rude, arrogant, and worst of all . . . the sexiest man she's ever laid eyes on. His reputation as a player is almost as legendary as his surfing skills. No matter how her body heats up when he's around, she's determined not to be another meaningless hookup.
Jamie McCade always gets what he wants. The sickest wave. The hottest women. And Tori, with her long legs and smart mouth, is definitely the hottest one. He knows Tori wants him-hell, most women do-but she won't admit it. After months of chasing and one unforgettable kiss, it's time for Jamie to raise the stakes.
Jamie promises that soon Tori won't just want him in her bed, she'll be begging for it-and he might be right. Somehow he's found the spot in her heart that makes her open up like never before. But with all she knows about his past, can she really trust what's happening between them? Is Jamie playing for keeps or just playing to win?
This book can be read as a stand-alone.
Book 1--Four Letter Word
I was provided a review copy; this did not influence my opinion of the book.
From my review of Four Letter Word:
“I loved the side story with the secondary characters, Tori and Jamie. Their banter was fabulous! Jamie is the perfect example of a male whore waiting to be redeemed and he wants Tori to be his redeemer. Tori is spectacular. She’s level headed and not afraid to speak her mind. She is fun, mouthy, sarcastic and protective. The perfect friend.”
Jamie and Tori made that book for me. I loved them and could not wait to get their book.
Unfortunately, what I got was an alpha male so reminiscent of Kristen Ashley’s men, in both his speech and demeanor that I was forced to compare this book with the 40+ of hers that I have read. From his “babe’s” to the way he ordered her around to the doin’s, ain’ts, playin’s, throwin’s and admittin’s, the character I loved in Four Letter Word, disappeared.
Tori was just as disappointing. What I had loved most about her character was that she was level headed and not afraid to speak her mind, be it in a funny, sarcastic manner, Tori was not a push over. But sadly, here, she became a timid creature. Sure there were times she bantered back with Jamie, but she would second guess herself after the encounter. She was no longer self-assured. The problem this created for me was that because she was not a strong character, there was nothing to balance out Jamie. Thus making him look like a controlling (bordering on abusive) a$$! I needed her to push back more and to be more confident. I didn’t like that she was always apologizing.
I have read other reviews and have come to realize this is a case of IT’S ME, not YOU (the book). Many people gave this 4 and 5 stars. So make sure you read their reviews as well.
