Publisher's Summary

RITA Award Winner, Erotic Romance, 2018    

Sometimes bad isn't good enough.... 

On the outside, Lyle Tarpin is a clean-cut Hollywood actor whose star is on the rise. Inside, he's battling his own demons, shunning relationships, and finding solace in the arms of a string of anonymous women paid very well for their discretion. But when he's photographed in a compromising position by an over-eager reporter, the only way to save his career is to say that the woman he was with is his fiancée. And now Lyle has to play a very public game with the only woman who's ever managed to get under his skin. 

Struggling waitress Sugar Laine agrees to spend one night with Lyle - but only because she's desperate to save her family home. She never expects that a night of passion will turn into a pretend engagement...or that the heat between them will blossom into love. 

But sometimes love has a price. 

And now the only question is - can Lyle and Sugar afford to pay it?

It takes one resilient woman to heal a broken man.

Wicked Dirty is a lovely story about a broken man and a woman who refuses to get beat down by life.

Although, I enjoyed the storyline, there are a few issues that keep me from giving a 5 ⭐️ rating.
First, I didn’t feel the chemistry between the characters. Second, I don’t think the title covers the story. Third, I’m unsatisfied by what happens to the ‘bad guys’ (because I don’t know what happens with them!)

Performance by Paula Hoffman is good, but not great. I prefer dual reading and I don’t think she pulled off the male parts in the book.

Not so wicked

The voice of the narrator took away from the male characters so their dialogue was not as effective but the storyline was interesting.

This narrator needs to read children's books

The story line is great, but you have to get past the narrator who often sounds like a prepubescent girl, and there is no differentiation between male and female parts, so it can be hard to follow.

Couldn't stand narrator's voice. Didn't finish

The voice narration is horrible. I tried, but I could not take her voice. Only listened to about 10 minutes.

Not my kind of book

Not too thrilled. A friend suggested it to me, but I am not really into these kind of books. I still tried to read it out of respect and to give it a try... I tried to get into the book more than once, I just couldn't. Please don't let my opinion sway you from attempting to read it if you like this author, or this genre. Happy Reading!

I enjoyed getting to know the main characters...

J. Kenner created great characters and this was no different. I do hope to experience more without the he paid for something to begin the relationship more often with her other books.

Really disappointing

Neither story nor narration up to the usual J Kenner standard. Stilted and unimaginative. Characters not credible. Really poor.
