Dirty Little Lies by: Clare James

Dirty Little Lies is the first book in the Quick and Dirty series.

This book has to be one of the hottest things I have read (besides Fifty Shades of Grey of course). Dirty Little Lies was such a yummy, deliciously sexy read. 

Dirty Little Lies is about a young woman named Stevie Sinclair who loses almost everything in her life: her boyfriend, apartment, bird, and herself. After reading a magazine article, Stevie decides to take control of her life and sets a plan to get her "sexy back". It is at a hotel bar that Stevie meets Gabe Shannon and just like that her plan is set into motion. It also helps that Gabe is oh so willing to help. 

I really enjoyed reading Stevie's character. She was both hilarious, fun, and seemed to have a good sense of judgement. Her actions and reactions were both believable and realistic. As for Gabe, he was both sweet and delicious. He treated Stevie the way she deserved to be treated (an extra bonus in my book) and let's not forget the fact that he is also confident, gorgeous, and caring. 

Since page one this novel had me hooked, which resulted in me reading this novel in one day. Dirty Little Lies is brilliantly written, has amazing characters, contains smoking hot sexual scenes, and of course Free Bird. That bird literally cracked me up. 

If you like fun and steamy love stories than this novel is for you.


Summary from Goodreads:
Twenty-nine-year-old Stevie Sinclair has just lost everything: her boyfriend, her apartment, even her ugly bird named Free. (Yeah, she knows it’s stupid name, so don’t start.) But most importantly, Stevie’s lost herself. 

As she shuffles through her days in worn-out Hello Kitty PJs—eating ice cream, sipping wine, and contemplating her next move—a magazine article catches her attention. Blaring black letters read: "How to Get Your Sexy Back in Six Easy Steps."

Stevie studies the article in the trashy magazine like the good student she is and immediately knows what she has to do. With the magazine article in hand, and a bottle of red in her bag, Stevie embarks on a journey to reclaim her life and win back her ex. 

Until she meets Gabe Shannon. Gorgeous, single, and on a quest of his own, Gabe introduces Stevie to a lifestyle that is sure to help get her sexy back and then some. If she doesn’t chicken out … (Oh, you know where this is going.)

What follows is a story of self-discovery, romantic gestures, erotic encounters, and following one's heart--even if it leads in unexpected directions.

Portions originally published online as The Club e-series, Dirty Little Lies now has 70% more content, chapters from Gabe's point of view, and a sizzling conclusion to this steamy tale.
