They call me the #DirtyGentleman.
My reputation precedes me. I’m forward on the ice and in the bedroom With a filthy mouth and impressive moves. I always get the job done.
I have my future all planned out: Get laid often. Graduate. Land the job of my dreams.
Sounds easy. Right? It was until Delaney Dixon burst into my life.
Eyes as warm as melted chocolate. A sexy smile. And a pair of Double-Ds that sends men to their knees in gratitude.
She’s broken, hiding from a secret past, and refuses to let me in. But just like my game, I never quit.
She gave me one night.
But I want forever.
This #DirtyGentleman has me all wound up.
Rhonda James has once again nailed it with this second book in the Sticks & Hearts series. I swear each book I read from her just gets better and better.
Laney needs an escape from a wedding she is attending and while in an elevator sees Derek who is in town for a job interview. She decides to follow him and barges into his room. The two have a flirtatious conversation over some tequila, there are some glances exchanged, then some touching. They get interrupted by a call and when Derek turns around Laney is gone. It becomes a game of cat and mouse which eventually ends up in a night that neither one can get off their mind.
They both return to their lives and eventually start to exchange text messages and phone calls.
As I read this book I found myself wanting so desperately for these two to meet up again. I loved the relationship that formed between the two. We also discover that Laney has secrets and they will pull at your heart strings. She is a strong and determined woman so completely brave. At times I found myself saying FUCK this girl has had such a tough go I just wanted to make it all better for her.
DERRICK DAVIS !!!! Oh my, he was one swoony #DirtyGentleman. So damn sweet he will make your heart go pitter patter while at the same time get your blood flowing with his damn sexiness. You will want a dose of Vitamin D regularly.
I am not going to say too much more as I don’t want to spoil this book. But man there were some moments where I wanted to cry, scream, and even a few moments where I wanted to fucking slap a few people.
I will say that this is a book that everyone should read if you are looking for a great heartfelt romance.
