She’s getting dirty with the bad boy…
Determined to find her inner badass and save her business, boutique owner Michelle Ruby signs up for a twenty-four hour survival class. Except, she’s the only person who registered, and the guide is a sex-on-a-stick G.I. Joe come to life. Between his massive muscles, smoldering blue eyes, and “there’s no crying in camping” attitude, she’s in trouble…in more ways than one.
Search and rescue squad member Dex Young never thought he’d be roped into teaching “survival skills” to pageant queens. His sole student is upper class, upper state, and sexy as hell. And he has a sneaking suspicion that beneath her tight updo and designer jeans, there’s a sex kitten waiting to claw her way out.
But Dex knows women like her. Knows they only bring guys like him home to piss off their daddies. If it’s the bad boy experience she wants, she’ll get it. And Dex? Well, he can’t wait to find out just how dirty Michelle’s willing to get…

This was short and sexy and cute and I really enjoyed it. The whole book is easy and delicious and was a perfect pick me up over the stressful holiday period. Michelle is a poor little rich girl trying to strike out on her own away from a controlling ex-fiancé and wealthy parents who think she’s little more than a bargaining chip. Which is how she ends up on a survival course, camping out overnight with one of the sexiest men she’s ever met.
Dex knows all about rich people slumming it. After all, that’s how he came into the world, and his mother has made sure he hasn’t forgotten it, even if he can’t help being attracted to rich girls looking for a good time with a bad boy. Dex is good at being bad, but he’s also first and foremost a protector, so when Michelle comes along ticking all the right boxes and with an added vulnerable side, he gets a little confused.
Luckily this confusion doesn’t stop either of them from having a very good time. I loved the way these two flirt and wheedle extra time together under the pretence of finishing up Michelle’s course and making sure Dex gets the right amount of training hours to regain his license. They’re cute and flirty and sexy, and I just found the whole thing a lot of fun.
Sure, for all the family troubles they both have, the plot doesn’t delve too deep in addressing them and the amount of genuine survival training is a little low, but overall this was good. I liked it a lot, it definitely helped me unwind and I’ll be catching up on the first in the series soon.
Tell Me You Want Me is out January 4th!
