No dirty deed goes unnoticed in a seductive game of cat and mouse. But for Alec and Gaige, the wrong move could get them killed.
Alec Drummond didn’t make his billions by playing nice—or by playing much at all. When it comes to pleasure, Alec only has time for whatever’s quick and easy, which is exactly what he gets from his company’s hot new computer genius. But Gaige Owens isn’t some pushover. He pushes back, and it’s giving Alec a rush. The question is, could Gaige be the one who’s leaking trade secrets? Just to be safe, Alec keeps him close at hand . . . night and day.
Gaige never thought he’d roll over for a man like Alec again, but who could resist sex this mind-blowing? Then there’s the draw of Alec’s mysterious side: his cutthroat ambition, his covert CIA connections, and the murder in his past. For Gaige, a deeper look proves an irresistible temptation. But when Gaige and Alec are stripped of their defenses by an unseen danger, everything they don’t know could bring them closer together—or tear them apart. Only one thing is certain: Before it’s all over, someone’s going down.
Dirty Deeds is the first book in the Dirty #1 series and it’s a follow up to the Tough Love Series. There are some characters that appear in this book, but its not necessary to read the Tough Love Series. I’m familiar with this authors writing style and I happen to really enjoy it but I have to admit this one started our a little rough for me. I felt lost in the first couple of chapters and had a hard time piecing things together. I’m glad I stuck to it because after a while things started to piece together and everything started to make sense.
Alec and Gaiges’s characters made the story for me. The characters were both strong players and very developed. There was an immediate connection that pulled me to both men. Their shared a banter that added a bit of tension in the air. The sex was good but the banter between Gaige and Alec was actually steamy and quite a turn on.
I got a tad confused with the whole Doomsday and the whole seed thing, not sure if it was needed. Vaults (though the fact that it’s a real thing is super cool). The air of mystery, suspense and danger was intense and laid out perfectly. There is a part in the story where one of the characters mentions a kink he had but I found there wasn’t a lot of emphasis on that kink other than this one time. It didn’t take away from the sex but I wished that would have been explored a little more.
Overall Dirty Deeds was a great start to this new series and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.
