Review! Dirty Deeds By Lorelei James

Sometimes to play dirty, you gotta dig deep…
Landscaper Nathan LeBeau knows exactly how to use his big equipment to make the earth move. The Native American bad-boy has a reputation for getting filthy—in and out of the bedroom.

So when good-girl Tate Cross needs dirt work done, she hires the wickedly hot and surprisingly intuitive Nathan—secretly hoping she’ll get more than just her flowerbeds plowed.

Smart and sexy Tate is exactly the type of woman Nathan’s been looking for. But he wants more than another fling, so he digs in his heels to prove to Miss-I-Don’t-Need-Romance that taking things slow will lead them to something real.

But Tate isn’t interested in being romanced—even when Nathan’s sweet and charming ways are hard to resist. She’ll use every tool at her disposal to convince the former player to play with her and that getting down and dirty together is as real as it gets.

This book has been previously published. Over 2600 revisions have been made to the book

Warning: A reformed bad boy who wants a taste of real love, and a good girl who wants just one taste of the wild side—and she’s willing to drive a hard bargain to get what she wants.

I had read the original version of Dirty Deeds years ago and was curious to see if I would like it as much as I had previously when the opportunity to review the re-release came up. Sadly either as a reviewer my tastes have changed through the years or I just didn’t connect with the story like I had the first time so because of that my original rating was lowered. 

The story was the same as I remembered but certain things bothered me more this time.  Nathan and Tate just didn’t work for me this time around.  I am usually all for a woman who knows what she wants and goes for it, but the way Tate was on more than one occasion just had me wanting to explain that there is a difference than having a wild fling versus acting like a whore to achieve that goal.  Nathan after a while I just was over his character. 

I really do have a feeling that this is the case of my personal interests have changed since I originally read Dirty Deeds but at the same time this isn’t one I feel like I am able to yell from the rooftops recommending either.  Form your own opinions with this one, maybe you will feel differently that I did.
