Alex Dawn is saying no to men. No to bad relationships, disappointments, and smooth-talkers. Focusing on her family and her job at Payton and Sons Automotive keeps her mind occupied and her heart content. She doesn’t really miss a man’s touch, until one night, a man shows up with the body of a god and a voice from her dirtiest dreams.
L.M. Spencer is only in Tory, Maryland, to scope out the town as a possible site for one of his company's hotels. The British businessman didn’t expect his car to break down or to find the hottest little American he’s ever seen holding a tire iron, piercing him with bright blue eyes.
They agree to one hot night, one dirty deed to burn out the chemistry between them. But from their first kiss, Alex can’t stop saying yes to this man. And when Spencer’s company threatens everything she cares about, they must make the choice to stand together or apart.
I’ve been waiting for Alex’s book since learning more about her during Dirty Talk. I loved her character. She was sassy and spunky and different from a majority of the women you read about in romance books. I loved that she’s a mechanic. There aren’t nearly enough books out there with blue collar characters, which is a shame because I love reading about them. I adored her relationship with the Paytons and, with her bad relationship in the past, I couldn’t wait to see her get her chance at a happily ever after.
The pairing of Alex with Spencer was great. Despite the fact that part of the reason Spencer was in town was to possibly try to buy the Paytons’ land and tear the shop down to build a hotel, I couldn’t help but like the guy. He had a good heart. He had his own challenges with relationships in the past. The chemistry between Alex and Spencer was hot. I liked how he began knocking down her walls. Things were pretty intense between them, considering it was supposed to be no strings attached fun. Of course, this is a problem because their time together has an expiration date. What’s a girl to do?
Dirty Deeds was a great, quick read. Not only was Alex and Spencer’s story excellent, but you know I loved seeing the other Paytons again. These characters are just wonderful. It’s impossible NOT to fall for them. I got some pretty nice feels from this one and ended it with a big ol’ grin on my face.
I loved Megan’s Mechanics of Love series. Each of the characters have a special place in my heart and, as sad as I am to see it end, I know they’re there for a reread anytime I want. And I just can’t wait to see what she gives us next!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.
