Getting Dirty by Rachael Stewart
ABOUT THE BOOK
Sometimes digging up the dirt
Means getting deliciously dirty…
I always work for the good guys. My job was simple: get the dirt on Coco Lauren, a princess of a socialite who talks—and plays—dirty. But I kissed her. I tasted her. Uncovered the tantalizing woman beneath the polished façade. And she undid me in every way. Now I’m the bad guy. But how do I tell Coco the truth…when coming clean means losing her?
A rich socialite and a private investigator are hired to get dirt on her. One fateful hookup in a private nightclub and their lives will never be the same.
I didn’t set out to be a private investigator. It’s a job that chose me when my family needed it most and it turns out I’m a natural. If there’s dirt, I’ll find it. And right now, that dirt is sitting across the softly lit room from me.
Coco Lauren was not his type. Ash got burned in the past by someone like her and he did not need that headache again. However, the dirt he was supposed to dig up on her is nonexistent…other than her stress relief at the private club called Blacks where his first encounter with her is unforgettable… and most likely unforgivable.
But there’s a look on his face a split second before he turns away—that same pain I read in the underground garage. He’s suffering too. And I don’t know why.
Ash Livingston is nothing like those other men who wanted her for her money and title. Coco feels safe with him and prefers his company to her family except for her Granny who she loves dearly and who doesn’t have long to live. Coco has feelings for Ash and thinks he cares for her too, but it feels like he is hiding something from her.
The story is told in the first person from Ash’s and Coco’s points of view, and again, in true Stewart fashion, the chemistry is off the charts. I love Ash and Coco’s compelling and beautiful relationship. Watching Ash battle with his train wreck of a secret is torturous and heartbreaking. Overall, he is a confused and good guy who makes a bad choice and redeems himself. Coco is a generous and lonely woman who is terrified of losing her dying grandmother and on top of that, dealing with a petty family who wants to ruin her.
This is my second Rachael Stewart novel and it doesn’t disappoint. I look forward to her next book.
Thank you to Ms. Stewart for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
