Contemporary Romance Review: Dirty Like Me by Jaine Diamond

Dirty Like Me by Jaine Diamond (Dirty #1)

Ecopy thanks to the author

Synopsis from Goodreads
A gorgeous rock star.
An indecent proposal.
How can a girl resist?

Struggling barista Katie Bloom doesn’t even know who Jesse Mayes is until she inadvertently wins the coveted role of sex kitten in his hot new music video. But by the time she’s in bed with him, she knows his reputation.

Love maker. Heartbreaker.

Making out with a stranger in front of a camera crew isn’t how Katie imagined herself getting over a broken heart, but when Jesse touches her, sparks fly. The sex is fake but the chemistry is real, and soon the steamy video is blazing up the charts.

Then Jesse makes Katie an irresistible offer: act as his girlfriend for six weeks while he promotes his new album. The only catch? Their sizzling make-out sessions will be for the cameras only.

Which is fine with Katie, since she's not about to trust her heart to rock's most legendary lover. Her body? Maybe…

Jess Mayes is a rock star, Katie Bloom is a baker and an artist. She makes an impression on him while visiting her friend's talent studio, and he requests her as a model for his music video.

This is a delicious tangled mess of a relationship, and I really enjoyed reading about it. I liked how yummy Jess was. I was actually more in his camp than Katie's.

While I appreciated when she decided to let go and have fun, I didn't like her mixed messages. The sexual tension, the banter and day-to-day interactions between these two sparkled.

I also loved secondary characters, there was literally only one mean person here.,

I think the ending threw me. It was just too much sugary sweetness, too many grand gestures where they didn't feel necessary the author was afraid of missing one out. My problem was that Katie had really lo self-worth, and yet she was hot, cute as a button, a talented artist and bang-on baker. She was super nice top everyone, and couldn't believe that she herself was awesome and easy to love.

Overall, I had great fun with this read. Sexy, lovely characters, a lot of good music and some classy dirty talk. *grins* It's pretty similar to Lauren Dane's style of writing, recommended.

Джесс Мэйс - рок-звезда, Кейти Блум - артист, пекарь и скейтбордистка. Когда она навещает подругу, владеющую актёрским агентством, Джейс видит её и запрашивает в качестве модели для своего музыкального видео.

Не зная, как зацепить понравившуюся ему девушку на крючок, он предлагает той притвориться его гёрлфренд на 6 недель тура его группы в Северной Америке, чтобы увеличить продажи его альбома.

Мне очень было весело читать об этой парочке, сопротивляющейся влечению друг к другу, отчаянно флиртующей и наконец сдающейся и прыгающей друг к другу в постель. Их отношения, разговоры и эмоции были реалистичными, и мне импонировало их решение на всё забить.

Джесс мне понравился больше Кейти, потому что она была очень неуверенна в себе и никак не замечала насколько она была привлекательна и талантлива.

Концовка тоже мне попортила впечатление. Это была куча грандиозных романтических жестов, как будто автор боялась пропустить самый из них важный. По мне, так это был перебор.

А в общем, очень развлекательно. Особенно хорошо пойдёт у поклонников Лорен Дэйн. Рекомендую.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
