"When good, clean fun just isn t an option."

Just once, good girl Tate Cross wants to experience a red-hot, no-strings-attached affair. She s temporarily left her graphic artist position in Denver to settle her aunt s estate in Spearfish, South Dakota, but the city won t let her sell the property until the landscaping is up to snuff. The Native American landscape contractor her friend highly recommends looks like he can meet all her needs, in the flowerbed and out.

Nathan LeBeau believes few women look at the Native American man beneath the filthy work clothes and hard hat. When Tate offers to trade art lessons for dirt work, the tempting subtext is as plain as the lettering on the side of Nathan s truck. But in truth, he s tired of relationships based solely on sex. His goal of proving he s not completely hopeless in matters of the heart is second only to his dream of expanding his business.

It figures. Tate wants no-holds-barred sex right about the time the one-time Casanova wants a good old-fashioned romance. Bring on the battle of wills!

This book has been previously published.

Warning: A reformed bad boy who wants a taste of real love, and a good girl who wants just one taste of the wild side and she s willing to drive a "hard" bargain to get what she wants."

My Thoughts

Dirty Deeds was a fabulous read! I was stunned at how beautiful this was written and how it was a smooth read. The characters Tate Cross and Nathan LeBeau were absolutely perfect. They were complete opposites that wanted the same thing in the end.

Tate was a woman lost and hurt from a previous relationship. She wanted to stop playing good girl and live on the wild side by having a raunchy fling with a hot guy. She wanted to experience the kind of sex she hears her friends talk about. Nathan was  the kind of guy to bang you and leave you, but he has now realized he wanted to be something more for someone. Their meeting was not by chance, it had a purpose.

The relationship between Tate and Nathan started off crazy because Nathan wanted romance while Tate just wanted sex, but as the story progresses we see that the two fall in love, but neither wants to admit their true feelings because they thought it wouldn't matter. The fact that they went through all the motions and even had a month apart in the end made for their end result to have true meaning.

I loved the pace of this story, how it was not so much about the sex scenes even though it was about sex. I loved how the development of each character changed in the end for the better. This was a cute and perfect contemporary romance with not too much sex and I highly recommend it to others!

I definitely plan to read more from Lorelei pretty soon.
