No dirty deed goes unnoticed in a seductive game of cat and mouse. But for Alec and Gaige, the wrong move could get them killed.
Alec Drummond didn’t make his billions by playing nice—or by playing much at all. When it comes to pleasure, Alec only has time for whatever’s quick and easy, which is exactly what he gets from his company’s hot new computer genius. But Gaige Owens isn’t some pushover. He pushes back, and it’s giving Alec a rush. The question is, could Gaige be the one who’s leaking trade secrets? Just to be safe, Alec keeps him close at hand . . . night and day.
Gaige never thought he’d roll over for a man like Alec again, but who could resist sex this mind-blowing? Then there’s the draw of Alec’s mysterious side: his cutthroat ambition, his covert CIA connections, and the murder in his past. For Gaige, a deeper look proves an irresistible temptation. But when Gaige and Alec are stripped of their defenses by an unseen danger, everything they don’t know could bring them closer together—or tear them apart. Only one thing is certain: Before it’s all over, someone’s going down.
Worldbuilding: The European setting was a nice change, and including the Svalbard seed bank in the story made it all the more fun, if you ask me.
Characters: I really loved Gaige and Alec together. I mean, Gaige is this geeky who’s smoking hot and pretty alpha himself, and Alec is the emotionally distant, hot as hell uber-alpha of our dreams xDD They had delicious chemistry and explosive smex, plus the banter was a delight in itself.
Plot: The romance was a slow burn kind of forced proximity kind of story, and hot as hell. I really loved their resisting the attraction while it lasted, mwahahaha. Evil reader, what can I say? The action was nicely active and things happened at an alert pace.
Writing: Third person, past tense, his/his POV. Really liked their voices and sense of humor.
Curb Appeal: Cool cover, hooking blurb – impulsive buy material for my romantic suspense cravings.
I recommend Dirty Deeds to fans of switches and alpha/alpha pairing with delicious banter and super hotness.
