A romantic suspense that I loved!
Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars
Dirty Dealers was an intense, consuming, and wholly enjoyable read that I could not put down. This story wove together a phenomenal story of second chances, more twists and turns than you can shake a stick at, and a connection and love so tenacious and strong that it truly took my breath away. From the very first page of this book, I was completely swept into the world I was so authentically thrust into, and I could not get enough of these characters and the enrapturing story they were allowing me to experience with them.
This book is exactly what I needed and I loved it so so much. Equal parts intense and consuming, full of shocks and action filled moments, all while giving me an emotional and heat filled second chance romance, this book checks every box and delivers on every level.
Now it is no secret that I love me some books by Tia Louise something fierce. I am a HUGE fan of her One to Hold Series, so I was definitely eager to see what this new world would bring. What I got within the pages of this book was more of her spectacular writing and storytelling that mesmerized me in more ways than one. What I love about Tia Louise’s writing is that it makes the world and the characters she creates so vivid, authentic, and real. She lets you feel every ounce of what her characters do, she gives you so much with them, and through every page of her stories she puts you in the thick of it in the most tangible and enjoyable way.
Dirty Dealers was no different. This story completely swept me up, and through the way that Tia Louise gave me these characters and their unputdownable story, I was beyond hooked into every word that I was reading. With the perfect level of feels, fiery heat, and heart, this story not only had me on the edge of my seat waiting to see how it would all work out, it also had my heart feeling it all for and with these characters through every phenomenal page.
This book and this story were so well crafted and written, and through every turn of that page, I found myself sinking further into its depths in the most amazing way, and I truly can’t say enough how downright phenomenal that was to experience.
Dirty Dealers was a story about how some loves never truly go away. It is a story about second chances, the fight you have in your heart, and just how far you’re willing to go for the one that matters. This story was real, it was intense as all get out, and it gave me two characters who shared a world of feeling and some serious fire together. Reading and living every word of Logan and Kass’s story was wholly enjoyable, all-consuming, and bursting with their wonderful dynamic and love.
Through every word of this story I was in it with them as they fought for each other and what they knew had to be done. While their story wasn’t always easy, it showed me so much about the two of them, and had me feeling so much with them along the way. Those two proved to me again and again that their heartfelt connection was fierce as ever and ready to be felt, and I could not get enough of it all with them.
If you are looking for a phenomenally written story, with dynamic and enjoyable characters who share so much that will have you and your heart on the edge of your seat, then run yourself to this book this very second. Dirty Dealers was such a good book, and what I got within its pages was one of the most consuming stories I’ve read in a long time, and I’m telling you, you need to read it!
This is a good story with a sick and twisted bad guy. The main characters are Logan Hunt and Cassandra Kroft. They haven't seen each other in six years and pick up almost exactly where they left off. This is the story of deep love, forgiveness, friendship and betrayal. It's full of action in and out of the bedroom, near tragedy and an extreme race against the clock. The story line is smooth and the characters were real and down-to-earth. You almost forget that Rowan and Ava are the king and queen.
Protect At All Times
What I’ve learned most from Tia Louise’s heroines in her Dirty Players series as well as her newest release, Dirty Dealers, is that in order to survive…in order to fight for what they have as well as who they need to provide for, there’s nothing they won’t do…even if that means getting their hands dirty in a way that they might not be able to recover from or might not be able to repay.
Kass Kroft has debts to pay and a brother to protect and because of those circumstances, she finds herself beholden to a man who wants to destroy innocent lives and use her as the tool to accomplish his evil plans. Like Zelda and Ava, Kass finds herself in an impossible situation because not only is she risking her own life in order to keep her brother safe, but she’s also putting herself in the path of THE MAN from her past…the one who still lives in her dreams…the one who she gave everything to…the one who now becomes a target in a deadly game that she has no choice but to play.
If there’s one thing Tia Louise has shown readers about Logan Hunt, it’s the fact that he was born to be a protector; with his strength, focus, and control, he’s able to outmaneuver the dirty dealers who look to benefit from the downfall of the noble family, but what he never anticipated was being played by the one woman who owned his heart six years ago and who he wants to give everything to again.
Tia Louise creates a necessary grey environment in Dirty Dealers; it’s not necessarily good versus evil when it comes to all of the players in the game; there’s nothing black and white about what Kass Kroft must do in order to make restitution to the devil himself. She has no choice but to carry out her orders, even though she knows it’s wrong, and she could wind up losing everything that she’s always wanted. It’s exactly due to her purity and tender heart that there’s a chance others will see who she really is and what her cooperation is/will cost her.
There’s definitely explosive chemistry between Logan and Kass when they reunite, and despite the years that have passed, even if dirty dealing put them in each other’s lives again, both are determined to protect the other as well as prove that what they felt all those years ago has never left their hearts or their bodies.
Dirty Dealers is quite the game of cat and mouse, and even though the main dealings pit the good guys against the bad ones, there are other variables to the game that are just as important to the end result, making both Logan and Kass’ assignments the events that will either solidify the bond between them or force Logan to deliver swift justice to the woman he can no longer trust.
Kass is not your typical heroine, which is exactly why I adore her. The way she tackles the obstacles in her way speaks to the type of fighter she is, and although she hasn’t made the best choices, her circumstances dictated her actions, and I can’t fault her for doing what she thought was best, even though it ends up taking her down a dangerous path because it leads her back to Logan Hunt.
Logan and Kass’ story is a sexy, suspenseful journey; I love the world Tia Louise created with her royals and those who protect them, and I can’t wait for more from these feisty heroines and sinful alpha males!
