A Dirty Dicks Standalone Novel
a fine line between love and hate…
world-renowned photographer Beau Allen, the guy who inadvertently sent her life
into a downward spiral. It has taken Tess years to find herself and become a
person she can be proud of. Now Beau is back and making a play for her heart…a
play she’s not sure she wants him to make. The more he pushes, the more her
walls crumble, and Tess soon discovers that his sweet kisses and even sweeter
words might be just what she’s been looking for in life.
Tess Walker hates Beau Allen…
plentiful friends, and a job that sends him all over the world. What he doesn’t
have is a home—or a reason to make one. Living out of a suitcase isn’t ideal,
but he’s perfectly content. That is, until a beautiful woman barrels her way
into his life and has him second-guessing everything. Tess is nothing like the
women he’s used to and everything like the woman he wants. Grounded, strong,
funny, sweet, and sexy. Did he mention sexy? Her curves make it hard for him to
think, and his life’s mission soon becomes making her laugh and sigh and moan,
because he really likes it when she moans. But Beau isn’t used to sticking
around. Still, he’s hoping she’ll give him a reason to stay.
MO. She is entertained daily by her
extraordinary husband, who will forever inspire every good quality she writes
in a man. Her entire life rests in the
palms of six dirty little hands, and when the day is over and those pint-sized
cherubs have been washed and tucked into bed, you can find her typing away
furiously on her computer. She has a
love for alpha-males, brownies, reading, tattoos, sunglasses, and happy
endings…and not particularly in that order.
I love when you think a book is going to go one way and it goes another. That’s what happened with this book. I thought what happened in the past was one thing, but it turns out being something else.
Tess Walker runs a floral shop in Heaven, Texas, and struggles to make ends meet. She took over the shop for her grandmother, but is happy to be back in her small town. Her best friend, Mo, is getting married to an Allen, and one of the Allen brothers is Beau, world renowned photographer. Beau travels the world taking amazing photographs, but he hasn’t been home much over the past several years. Now that his brothers are getting married, Beau is starting to realize how much he’s missed with his family during his absence.
Everyone feels that Tess and Beau would be good together, but Beau doesn’t realize that he did something that affected Tess’s life dramatically. It wasn’t at all what I thought it was. I found that refreshing.
There wasn’t a ton of drama between Tess and Beau, which was nice. There was a whole story line at the end that kind of came out of nowhere, but it was really interesting and added to the story. Tess and Beau were a good couple. Watching them develop and grow together was nice to read.
Tess was incredibly strong. She had a tough childhood, but became a very strong woman. Beau had a loving family but was missing his foundation. Tess became that for him. I would recommend this book for sure.
