A five figure fee. A private villa at an exclusive tropical paradise. Absolute compliance. Top tier celebrity trainer Luke McLean demands all of the above, plus strict adherence to his zero bullshit policy. Especially when faced with six short weeks to whip a spoiled starlet into leading lady shape.
Quinn Sheridan suddenly has half the time she anticipated to turn herself into an action hero for the role of her career. Luckily, her agent calls in a secret weapon, but the demanding, drop dead gorgeous hardass fails to understand SHE’S the client. She has no problem taking direction, but Luke’s definition of cooperation feels more like complete and utter submission. And she’s tempted to give it to him…
If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times, Samanthe Beck’s book are some of my very favorite treats. She weaves the sexiest stories with characters are strong in will and intentions. Her newest book, Dirty Games, part of the Tropical Temptations continuum is all that and more. Her heroine and hero are put together on what should be a mission impossible, but it turns into something even hotter than the resort where they are staying.
This book struck a chord in me that I really was not expecting. Not only is Dirty Games a hot AF romance, but is about control, taking complete ownership of one’s life and destiny, but also accepting that you can’t be a super-hero to everyone – you have to be your own first.
Quinn Sheridan bears too many burdens – the how’s and why’s make you want to reach through the page or screen and hug her tight. I loved her. LOVED. HER. She had sass and good lord was she stubborn, but she needed that someone to not only help her recognize that she was way, way stronger than she gave herself credit for, but also that she didn’t have to carry the weight alone.
Luke McLean. OH, MY YES!!! Though he saw Quinn through a pair of lust-colored glasses, he could also see her for all of her strength and the sheer will to be a successful actress, not for the accolades, but her own satisfaction. Luke is the good man behind the strong woman, supporting her because he knows no other way.
These two had a chemistry that was off ALL the charts. Each and every single moment in their company could heat your house on cold, cold night. While their sexiest of times, were truly hot, I really loved those moments where they verbally sparred – it was foreplay at it’s best.
Dirty Games more than satisfied my Samanthe Beck craving, but left me wanting more. Get your hands on this book and enjoy!!
