Dirty Like Me

Adult; Romance; (Market)

A gorgeous rock star. An indecent proposal. How can a girl resist? Struggling barista Katie Bloom doesn’t even know who Jesse Mayes is until she inadvertently wins the coveted role of sex kitten in his hot new music video. But by the time she’s in bed with him, she knows his reputation. Love maker. Heartbreaker. Making out with a stranger in front of a camera crew isn’t how Katie imagined herself getting over a broken heart, but when Jesse touches her, sparks fly. The sex is fake but the chemistry is real, and soon the steamy video is blazing up the charts. Then Jesse makes Katie an irresistible offer: act as his girlfriend for six weeks while he promotes his new album. The only catch? Their sizzling make-out sessions will be for the cameras only. Which is fine with Katie, since she's not about to trust her heart to rock's most legendary lover. Her body? Maybe…
The sparks fly when a Vancouver-based rock star hires a struggling artist first to appear in his new video and then to act as his girlfriend as he goes on tour across North America. Katie Bloom has no intention of being known as rocker Jesse Mayes’s latest fling, but the money is too good to pass up, and she’s secretly intrigued by Jesse’s blend of roguish charm and private playfulness. Their mutual attraction is impossible to deny, and what starts off as a performance for the cameras soon turns real, with the two lovers burning up the sheets even as Jesse’s album burns up the charts. But they both know it’s only for the duration of the tour, and Katie can’t wait to get back to a normal life. For this first entry in the Dirty contemporary romance series, Diamond (Deep) crafts a spicy, sassy, sexy romance with likable characters who share intense chemistry, and populates it with a memorable, entertaining supporting cast. It feels like Katie and Jesse take forever to realize their obvious feelings for one another, but their story is still satisfying. (BookLife)
