Title: Dirty Little Lies
Author: Clare James
Release Date: January 25, 2014
Twenty-nine-year-old Stevie Sinclair has just lost everything: her boyfriend, her apartment, even her ugly bird named Free. (Yeah, she knows it’s stupid name, so don’t start.) But most importantly, Stevie’s lost herself.As she shuffles through her days in worn-out Hello Kitty PJs—eating ice cream, sipping wine, and contemplating her next move—a magazine article catches her attention. Blaring black letters read: "How to Get Your Sexy Back in Six Easy Steps." Stevie studies the article in the trashy magazine like the good student she is and immediately knows what she has to do. With the magazine article in hand, and a bottle of red in her bag, Stevie embarks on a journey to reclaim her life and win back her ex. Until she meets Gabe Shannon. Gorgeous, single, and on a quest of his own, Gabe introduces Stevie to a lifestyle that is sure to help get her sexy back and then some. If she doesn’t chicken out … (Oh, you know where this is going.) What follows is a story of self-discovery, romantic gestures, erotic encounters, and following one's heart--even if it leads in unexpected directions. Portions originally published online as The Club e-series, Dirty Little Lies now has 70% more content, chapters from Gabe's point of view, and a sizzling conclusion to this steamy tale.
Dirty Little Lies by Clare James3.75 out of 5 stars
When looking at this book ask yourself these questions:
1. Do you like kinky stories that really aren't that different from all the other books out right now?
2. Did you watch Bridget Jones Diary and wish they made an R or XXX version of it???
If you answered yes, then this book is for you!!! All while reading this book, I felt we have seen it before. Looking passed that, it was a funny and good book! When we meet Stevie she's in the dumps. She's a hilarious mix of Bridget Jones desperately in need of a "Stella needs her Groove back" makeover. You feel bad for her after she's been left and destroyed. And just like the female stereotype, she decides she must change who she is so her ex will want her back! So what happens? Well that's when we meet Gabe! Now this man is your typical whips and spankery of this generation of books. He becomes the teacher to her student. Teaching her the art of seduction. Well that's all good and well, but then the surprise ending hits!!!! No spoilers from me but it's quite unexpected!!!! To me, this book is typical, No offense to the writer. It's a great story though I wish the characters had more of a connection. The kink was as expected and was a saucy little number. Why not more stars??? Well, it's simply because this isn't very original. If you want the story to be fresh, you need to write something fresh. I felt this was a recycled book from the top ten kinkery that's been out. Great style of writing, no anomalies or horrible errors, great flow and progression.
