They’re serving up some red-hot revenge. A sizzling series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel van Dyken.
Blaire has never quite gotten over Jessie Beckett, the ex–NFL star whose kisses were hot enough to ignite the entire Eastern Seaboard. When he chose work over her, Blaire was left brokenhearted. Why else would she have married a skeezy two-timer, just to divorce him less than a year later?
Now Blaire is getting even by becoming one half of Dirty Exes, a PI firm fully committed to humiliating cheating jerks. If only the new jerk she’s been hired to uncover wasn’t Jessie Beckett himself.
Exposing Jessie isn’t going to be easy, especially when she still daydreams about his sexy smile. Further complicating matters is Colin, Jessie’s best friend. He’s gorgeous, a little bit cunning, and willing to help Blaire get the inside scoop on Jessie—for a price.
Now caught between two men—one totally right and the other totally wrong—Blaire will need to decide just how much she’s willing to risk…and whom she’s willing to risk it for.
**Disclaimer** I received a digital ARC from Social Butterfly PR via Rachel Van Dyken in exchange for an honest review. The views and opinions that I have expressed here are solely my own and are in no way a representation of the views and/or opinions of the author, publisher, and/or distributor.
Can I just say that RVD is like fine wine…her stories get better and better with time. She’s one of my go-to authors when I’m stuck in a book slump and she’s never disappointed me. Ever.
Dirty Exes is the first in the Liar’s Inc. series and it was catchy, swoon-worthy, and, in RVD fashion, entertaining as hell.
“You’re more likely to accidentally shank a guy than to sleep with him. The Blaire I used to know would always get herself into impossible and sometimes violent situations.”
“Hey!” She thrust that giant purse at me again. “It’s not my fault that I attract the negative from the universe.”
When we first meet Blairs she’s in a…well….stinky situation and it quickly becomes clear that she tends to find herself there often. She works with her now best friend as a PI in the cheating business and things are going well for them. I liked Blaire’s character immediately. She’s honest and personable in a way that “normal” people can relate to.
When a blast from the past enters her life, she starts to worry and wonder about everything that could have happened back then and what’s really happening now. I don’t want to spoil anything, but when I thought I had the plot line figured out, RVD threw me a curve ball and omg what a curveball it was!!! I wasn’t digging it at first, but then I was swept up in all things romance with these characters and by the end I could not throw my heart at them fast enough.
“…keep looking at me like that and you won’t get a story.”
“Don’t ever apologize for eye-fu*king, it’s rude.”
RVD has a way with words and it definitely shows in Dirty Exes because you’ll be laughing your hind-end off one minute and then falling head over heels the next. You get a montage of emotions and a few POV’s that make this book even more exciting because it made me even more ready for book two!!!
Overall, I loved this book. It was light, funny, and endearing in all the right ways. I can’t wait for more of this series!
