I always dated for fun. In my job, I didn’t have time for anything serious, but that all changed in the blink of an eye. I was looking for Mrs. Stark, and I just found her. Reserved, sexy, every fantasy wrapped up into one beautiful package. But there’s a side to her I never saw coming.


Everyone thinks I’m a good girl, and for the most part I am. I have a great job, I follow the rules, and I never cause trouble. At least, not outside the bedroom. When I met Nathan, his demeanor immediately screamed that he needed a release, and I was about to give him one.

The Dirty by Giulia Lagomarsino
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

***Review copy requested and reviewed on behalf of OMGReads Blog***

The Dirty is book two in the series; A Good Run of Bad Luck, which is a spinoff series from The Cortell Brothers. These books should be read in order to have a better understanding of the characters and town. This is a small town, romantic comedy focusing on Nathan and Penny’s journey.

Nathan was a lot more like Eric Cortell then I would have imagined. He is uptight and a lot more vanilla then I would have anticipated with how much he loved sex. He was relatively sweet, romantic, and an overall good guy. But he could be quite the dumba$$ and put his foot in his mouth numerous times.

Penny was professional, fun, outgoing and practical. She also has quite the adventurous side and likes to spice things up. She’s also incredibly caring. She comes off as innocent but she’s far from. She also gives as good as she gets when it comes to pranks and payback.

The story was not what I was expecting. It was unpredictable, entertaining, and kinky, but also emotional. It had some good humor, but how can it not with the Cortell Brothers and their crazy wives being in the mix. We get to meet some new characters, Tyler and Lucas, that have piqued my interest. I felt there were some little nuggets about Tyler. Hopefully they both get their own stories. Until then, I’m really looking forward to Carter and Jacks story.

Author Bio:

I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.
