In #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel van Dyken’s scorching series, revenge is a justified pleasure…Isla made one teeny little mistake. Now she and her PI company, Dirty Exes, are being targeted by one seriously angry and furiously sexy ex-quarterback. Jessie freakin’ Beckett. But there’s no way some NFL superhunk is going to take her business away. If only he didn’t make her so hot—and bothered. Jessie wants payback for a ruined reputation. His plan? Top secret. His hard-to-hide arousal for Isla? Not so much. Especially when they let down their guards and sneak a kiss. Like any juicy scandal, it goes so viral, so fast, that only a good lie can combat the bad press. Mortal enemies in a fling? No way. Um…this is love! Actually…could it be? Isla’s not faking it. Jessie can’t. As the game of let’s pretend gets real, Jessie forgets all about revenge. That’s the problem. His plan is already out of his control. Now it could undo everything they’ve been trying to build. Coming clean may be the only thing that can save it.
I enjoyed reading the first book in this series a lot and I couldn’t wait to read Isla’s story because she was actually my favorite character in book 1. 😉 I can honestly say I was NOT disappointed…Isla and Jessie were absolutely wonderful!!
Now Dirty Exes was funny, but I really laughed my ass off with this one… Goo Poh was especially hysterical…If only I could have a great aunt like that!
After the events in book 1, Jessie is hell-bent on having his revenge…and the best revenge would be to take Dirty Exes, PI down, and leave Isla especially, with nothing. This is actually where the story lost half a point for me because I just couldn’t for the life of me understand, why Jessie was more upset with Isla than with Blaire…Seemed like he just forgave Blaire for everything, and put all of his hate on Isla…I loved Isla, in the first book and in this one, so naturally, this made me very very angry with Jessie. 😉
No worries though…he makes up for it. 😉
This was a light, funny, sweet and HOT story and it made me feel great!!
