Dirty Little Lies


Twenty-nine-year-old Stevie Sinclair has just lost everything: her boyfriend, her apartment, even her ugly bird named Free. (Yeah, she knows it’s stupid name, so don’t start.) But most importantly, Stevie’s lost herself. 

As she shuffles through her days in worn-out Hello Kitty PJs—eating ice cream, sipping wine, and contemplating her next move—a magazine article catches her attention. Blaring black letters read: "How to Get Your Sexy Back in Six Easy Steps."

Stevie studies the article in the trashy magazine like the good student she is and immediately knows what she has to do. With the magazine article in hand, and a bottle of red in her bag, Stevie embarks on a journey to reclaim her life and win back her ex. 

Until she meets Gabe Shannon. Gorgeous, single, and on a quest of his own, Gabe introduces Stevie to a lifestyle that is sure to help get her sexy back and then some. If she doesn’t chicken out … (Oh, you know where this is going.)

What follows is a story of self-discovery, romantic gestures, erotic encounters, and following one's heart--even if it leads in unexpected directions.

Portions originally published online as The Club e-series, Dirty Little Lies now has 70% more content, chapters from Gabe's point of view, and a sizzling conclusion to this steamy tale.

My Review

This story was humorous, sexy and very steamy! 
It was a fast pace read for me but it kept me entertained till the end.

Stevie Sinclair has been with her boyfriend for over a year. She loves him and she always tries to be his perfect little girlfriend, but things are lacking in the bedroom. Stevie doesn't know how to tell Max without  hurting him and his ego. Stevie comes across some evidence that Max is cheating on her and she ends up breaking up with him and is forced to move out of their apartment. Stevie and Max have a bird named Free and he is quiet a character himself! I had some laugh out loud moments with him! So Stevie decides to take him too. Stevie spends the next couple of days depressed eating ice cream watching movies and reading magazines. She opens a Cosmo Magazine and sees an article that catches her eye. 
"6 steps to get your sexy back"! With a new mission at hand, she takes herself for a weekend get away at a hotel with the intention of Bring her sexy back!

#1- Look the part.
#2- Be assertive and confident.
#3- Get away from your normal surroundings.
#4- Flirt with a stranger.
#5- Go dancing.
#6- Have a sexual adventure.

Stevie is at a very nice hotel bar and she is dressed to impress! She catches the guy who is Tall, Dark and Handsome at the bar and he takes little time introducing himself to her. His name is Gabe Shannon and he is just too hot to handle! They are flirting with each other and chatting it up when Stevie shows Gabe her 6 steps list! Gabe is very interested in helping Stevie. Especially with step #6! 
Little did she know he was going to open her eyes to a  whole new world!!

"Mmm. Stevie Sinclair. Yes. I think I will help you with your list, Ms. Sinclair."
He traces a finger along my hand.
"In fact, I don't think there's anything I'd enjoy more."

I really liked Gabe! He was just mister smooth guy. Saying and doing all the right things!;)
I was waiting for the other shoe to drop and it did but not too bad!:) 

Stevie was shocked to find out more about Gabe. She thought he was too good to be true! 
But who doesn't love a mystery guy!:)

"Is there such thing as spontaneous orgasm?
Because if there is, I think I just had one."

I don't want to say to much more because I will give too much about the story.

I enjoyed this book! Stevie and Gabe were hot together! 

He definitely brought her sexy back and more!

Over all the book was good and I kind of figured what was going to happen at the end but it still was a good ending and I loved the epilogue!
