Released: May 28, 2016
Genre: Women’s Fiction, Crime, Romance
Length: 234 pages
Format: ebook, paperback
Dominic Valetti is only interested in two things: getting paid and getting laid. He’s a bookie for the Valetti crime family, and he knows his sh*t. Dom’s busy doing business, no time to dabble in social niceties. The women that chase after him wanting more than a dirty, hard f*ck are only gonna get their hearts broken. That is, until Becca stumbles into his office to pay off her ex’s debt. A hot brunette who’s just as guarded as he is and has a body made for sin… and for him. They’re not meant to be together. A woman like her shouldn’t be with a man like him. He’s mobbed up; she’s a good girl who deserves better. When they push their boundaries and cave to temptation, they both forget about the danger. And that’s a mistake a man like Dom can’t afford. Will Dirty Dom risk it all to keep Becca safe, or will he live up to his name? This is a standalone, full-length mafia romance with a filthy-mouthed, possessive bad boy. Guaranteed HEA.
Three Boundless Stars
I have this thing when reading a story of putting myself in the place of the lead heroin and try to feel her emotions and get inside her head. Becca was in such a bad place that I really couldn’t do that and I just read the story. I empathized for everything she had going on, but at the same time I couldn’t relate, I think because I am just a completely different type of person. I found Becca to be a neurotic, submissive mess. I didn’t understand her sexual need for Dom, I get her need for comfort after what happened but her sexual need seemed to come out of nowhere. She wasn’t submissive before and now she suddenly is? Weird.
Dom is such an alpha male character that he dominates the book. At the same time he was a bit on the stalker crazy side. He just decides after one hot encounter that she will be his. UM…. Again my head gets in the way of fully enjoying the story because I’m thinking to myself are these people insane! Then I have to remind myself, “fiction”. LOL.
The story gets rather violent and dark and has a rough edge to it. I am not even sure how these two end up falling for each other, other than the Winters decided that they would. But, it was overall and enjoyable read with some wicked hot smut.
