Alex Dawn is saying no to men. No to bad relationships, disappointments, and smooth-talkers. Focusing on her family and her job at Payton and Sons Automotive keeps her mind occupied and her heart content. She doesn’t really miss a man’s touch, until one night, a man shows up with the body of a god and a voice from her dirtiest dreams.
L.M. Spencer is only in Tory, Maryland, to scope out the town as a possible site for one of his company's hotels. The British businessman didn’t expect his car to break down or to find the hottest little American he’s ever seen holding a tire iron, piercing him with bright blue eyes.
They agree to one hot night, one dirty deed to burn out the chemistry between them. But from their first kiss, Alex can’t stop saying yes to this man. And when Spencer’s company threatens everything she cares about, they must make the choice to stand together or apart.

OMG! MEGANPLEASELETMEHAVEYOURBOOKBOYSBABIES. Can I leave my review for Dirty Deeds like this? No? Too weird? Well, by now you should all probably know that Megan Erickson is my FAVORITE romance author and her books and the boys (ESPECIALLY THE BOYS) turn me into a complete swooning weirdo. I swear, her romances make me so light-headed and giddy with happiness!
I THINK I look like this when reading her books …
But really I just look like this.
Having loved the first two books, I was really looking forward to reading Dirty Deeds. We met this completely shattered character, Alex in the previous novel, Dirty Talk. My heart broke for her and I wanted her to be happy more than anything. It’s wasn’t at all pretty and when I went into Dirty Deeds, I was a teensy bit worried that this would be one of those cases where the heroine is magically cured by love, but I just need to stop doubting Megan Erickson because all her books have had characters that were fiercely feminist and that defeated their obstacles on their own. In Dirty Deeds, we see Alex really grow as a protagonist. I was so damn proud of the girl for being able to overcome her fears and turning into this bold, beautiful and brilliant woman, that you just want to root for.
Can also just say how awesome I think it is that despite being a mechanic, Alex was not at all a tom-boy (as you would have expected)? She was in touch with her femininity and complete embraced it with her cute dresses and bold red lipstick. Honestly, Alex was absolutely empowering as a character and I adore Megan Erickson for writing this fiesty, sassy and sexually confident woman. Basically, I WANT to be Alex (and not just because of the Hot Brit she snags!).

Speaking of Hot Brits … HOLY WOWZAH (See first sentence for reference)!! Spencer was just so perfect for Alex! I loved the man from very early on. He was one of those driven men who rose up from nothing and chased after their dreams. He was this tough, rugged businessman, but what made him appealing beyond words as a character was his gentleness towards Alex. He was flawed and made some dumb, but honest mistakes in the book, but every time he redeemed himself spectacularly.
Together Alex and Spencer were smoking! I actually think Dirty Deeds‘ title is very apt because this was probably the sexiest book in the series! Besides the undeniable chemistry they shared, I loved how they were a couple that shared so much about themselves with each other and grew in the process. They were supportive, fiercely loyal and made the romantic in me sigh with happiness in the process. Megan Erickson’s books are all about love and she does it so well. I also loved being back together with the rest of the cast (ESPECIALLY CAL!). They are truly an amazing family and I love how strongly they care about each other.
Yet again, Megan Erickson did not disappoint with this final installment (I still DEMAND a Delilah and Davis novel, Megan. MAKE IT HAPPEN!). If you’re a lover of all things romance, I can’t recommend this series and anything this author writes enough. The book is currently $1.99 on e-readers so you really have no excuse! All of her books have been such an emotional ride and Dirty Deeds was certainly no different.
Megan Erickson is one of the only authors who makes me want to throw all my money at her books. I don’t even care if I’m broke.
