Maggie Omura has never been a gambling woman. As assistant manager of Dirty, the hottest rock band on the planet, she brings order to the lives of four crazy-ass rock stars.
But when the band lands in Vegas, a streak of bad luck lands Maggie in a bind–and in the penthouse suite, with the last man she’d ever want for a roommate.
Zane Traynor, lead singer of Dirty. Rock god. Sex god. Total nightmare for women.
And the only man who’d make Maggie a proposal so insane it just might work.
A couple of months ago, I was given to opportunity to review the first book in Jaine Diamond’s Dirty series and enjoyed it so much, that when she offered me the chance to review the prequel for the series I agreed. While a short read (it only took me an hour or so to read), I was sucked in (while is probably why it was such as quick read). This is technically the prequel of the series, however, the author recommends that you actually read books 1 first to get more of the vibe of the band and the characters in it.
I’ll readily admit that I honestly don’t entirely remember Zane from Dirty Like Me, aside from the fact that he was the lead singer. Probably because I was so obsessed with Jesse and Katie…anyways – Dirty Like Us is Zane and Maggie’s story and like true rock star fashion…what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. One of the things I’ve discovered that I like about Ms Diamond’s writing is her ability to make the reader feel like they are in the setting of the book – I felt like I was in the hotel room with Zane partying and with him and Maggie hooking up in Vegas.
While a short read, it was a complete story with a happy ending. Overall, I gave Dirty Like Us 3.5 stars and can’t wait to see where Ms Diamond goes with the series next. Dirty Like Us is currently available as a free read through the authors website (click on the title link)
