Publisher: Bookouture (8th October 2015)
First of all, thanks to Bookouture for approving my request via Netgalley and for awarding me auto-approval for their titles. I am over the moon!
This is not the sort of book I would generally read, but I thought I’d give it a go as it has so many great reviews and with Bookouture as the publisher I knew it would have to be good. They have such fabulous authors on their books.
Dirty Dix had me totally hooked from the beginning.
Dr. Dixon Mathews (Psychiatrist) is a very charismatic character. A bad boy, obviously, but there’s more to him than that. He’s hurt. He was engaged, but was betrayed in the worst way possible, so he’s gone a bit wild. I’m sure many men (and women) have sought comfort and escapism in the arms of a stranger (or many in this case!) when dumped by the person they thought was the love of their life. He also has family issues which some will relate to.
This book is very raunchy so it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but it does have a good story to it. I was immediately drawn to Dixon. He’s a very likeable character, despite his antics. He has a vulnerable and sensitive side which is highlighted when he meets Madison. I liked how their relationship progressed although I did want to bang their heads together on numerous occasions! Madison’s back story is heart-breaking and I was really hoping things would work out for them both. Of course, nothing was ever going to be straight forward with Juliet on the scene. She is not a likeable character at all.
I also loved the banter between Dixon and his two best friends, Hunter and Finch. There are laugh out loud moments when they are together. Brilliant!
Overall, I’m glad I went out of my comfort zone and read something I wouldn’t normally choose. I read it within two days, so I think that says it all really!
This is the first book I’ve read by Monica James, but it won’t be the last. Book 2 has been downloaded!
Many thanks again to Bookouture, the author and Netgalley for my kindle copy.

I knew she was bad news when she walked into my office, but I just couldn’t help myself…
Filthy, sexy and full of surprises, Juliet is so hot she has me on fire. I’ve met my match and I can’t help going back for more.
Then there’s Madison… she’s sweet, funny and awakens in me a fierce need to protect her.
But I don’t do relationships. I don’t usually do the same woman twice.
Juliet and Madison: Two very different women have got me completely hooked.
Who will I choose?
I know who I should choose, but I never said I was the hero of this story, or even the good guy. And besides, who wants to be good, when it feels so good being bad?
My tale isn’t for the faint-hearted. If you’re game, strap yourself in and expect the unexpected. But don’t say I didn’t warn you…
What reviewers are saying….
Achingly sexy and highly addictive, Dirty Dix, the first in the Hard Love Romance series, will have you hooked. Wicked Dix coming soon…
