I swear every review I write, I start off by saying that the trope is my favorite kind. And it is every time I read a new romance. But book gods give me enemies to lovers romances because the TENSION, the DRAMA, it gives me LIFE! I need the first in this series to truly garner the level of animosity that started between our hero and heroine but trust me you can read this as a standalone.
Isla is on point when it comes to her business, Dirty Exes.Revealing cheaters and saving women;s lives is her forte. But one mistake, that any PI could’ve made, is risking her whole career. A disgruntled ex-husband, and ex-NFL player (which means hottie!), is on her back and determined to prove that she’s somehow a fraud. But the whirled wind that is Jessie’s ex-wife puts them in a paparazzi circumstance they can’t escape. And now the plan takes a crazy turn; they have a fake marriage to arrange….to one another! But they’re more than mortal enemies, they used to be friends and now they’re in a forced proximity and only have one another to trust when all their secrets are revealed.
Jessie hasn’t had control of his life in years. After and ex-wife that never truly loved him and dragged his name through the dirt, he’s determined to live life the way he’s always wanted. And right now that includes taking down the other woman who ruin his good name. Isla may be sexy and sassy but Jessie believes there’s a snake beneath that beautiful cover. Now stuck in a sham marriage to keep up for appearance sake, Jessie finds himself in one hell of a predicament. He’s attracted to Isla, and not just her body, her mind, and the fact that her world is full of COLOR. She bursts through his barriers faster than anyone he’s ever met and he’s got one final secret that could ruin everything they’ve built.
This romance is hot as can be!! The explosive chemistry between Isla and Jessie just jumps off the page. There are moments of slow burn and once it combusts, readers will feel so triumphant that they finally succumb to their desires. I loved Jessie’s black and white world seeping in to color as Isla burrows beneath his skin and breaks all his misconceptions about her. Fighting to find their happy ever after in a world of chaos this new romance is my latest 5 star read!
“I was going to destroy her the same way she destroyed me, from the inside out.”
Dangerous Exes, an all-new contemporary romance in the scorching series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken, is coming October 30th
Isla made one teeny little mistake. Now she and her PI company, Dirty Exes, are being targeted by one seriously angry and furiously sexy ex-quarterback. Jessie freakin’ Beckett. But there’s no way some NFL superhunk is going to take her business away. If only he didn’t make her so hot—and bothered.
Jessie wants payback for a ruined reputation. His plan? Top secret. His hard-to-hide arousal for Isla? Not so much. Especially when they let down their guards and sneak a kiss. Like any juicy scandal, it goes so viral, so fast, that only a good lie can combat the bad press. Mortal enemies in a fling? No way. Um…this is love!
Actually…could it be?
Isla’s not faking it. Jessie can’t. As the game of let’s pretend gets real, Jessie forgets all about revenge. That’s the problem. His plan is already out of his control. Now it could undo everything they’ve been trying to build. Coming clean may be the only thing that can save it.
