Dirty Deeds by Lorelei James: Review

Dirty Deeds by Lorelei James: ReviewDirty Deeds by Lorelei James

When good, clean fun just isn’t an option.

Just once, good girl Tate Cross wants to experience a red-hot, no-strings-attached affair. She’s temporarily left her graphic artist position in Denver to settle her aunt’s estate in Spearfish, South Dakota, but the city won’t let her sell the property until the landscaping is up to snuff. The Native American landscape contractor her friend highly recommends looks like he can meet all her needs, in the flowerbed and out.

Nathan LeBeau believes few women look at the Native American man beneath the filthy work clothes and hard hat. When Tate offers to trade art lessons for dirt work, the tempting subtext is as plain as the lettering on the side of Nathan’s truck. But in truth, he’s tired of relationships based solely on sex. His goal of proving he’s not completely hopeless in matters of the heart is second only to his dream of expanding his business.

It figures. Tate wants no-holds-barred sex right about the time the one-time Casanova wants a good old-fashioned romance. Bring on the battle of wills!

Leary says…

Sigh..another Lorelei James book that does not disappoint!! Whenever I’m in the mood for a steamy romance, a strong heroine and an alpha male that will not back down now matter how much the heroine pushes, I know that I can turn to Lorelei and she will never disappoint!! I first read Lorelei with her Rough Rider’s series and knew that I needed to pick up more of her books; I have to say I’m definitely happy I gave Dirty Deeds a go!

Tate is a good girl who has had horrible luck with men and never had a great sexual partner – now that she’s taking a bit of a detour in her life to clean up her aunt’s estate and get the house fixed up to be sold she’s also determined to take the chance to have a steamy, no-strings attached love affair….and who better to try to serve her needs then her best friend’s brother, Nate, who just so happens to be a stud of a Native American man!!

Nate just wants people to see the beauty that he can create with a landscape – he’s tired of being seen as the stereotypical lazy Indian. Helping Tate with fixing up the landscape of her aunt’s in exchange for help with his sketches and some sexual services (wink, wink) – this wasn’t his idea though, leave the masterminding to his sister!!!

I absolutely loved the back and forth struggle between Tate and Nathan – all she wanted was a love affair and all he wants is someone to see his romantic side and to build a family like his sister has. Tate’s inner monologue was hilarious, how much she was dying to devour Nate and how she kept drooling over him while making a fool of herself totally cracked me up!

Nate and Tate had a definite connection that you cannot deny! If you’re looking for a steamy, sweet read – look no further! Trust me, you need to dive into Lorelei James and never turn back!!

Why do I have a particular fondness for all things western? Well, I’m a fourth generation South Dakotan, living in the Black Hills, which is chock-full of interesting characters, including cowboys, Indians, ranchers, and bikers. The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands. Living in and writing about rural settings gives me a unique perspective, especially since I’m not writing historical westerns. Through my fictional world, I can show the ideals and the cowboy way of life are still very much alive.
