Review 5/5: Dirty Deeds (A Get Dirty Novel) by Lauren Landish


                                     


Dirty Deeds is the 3rd book in a series. This book can be read alone or as part of the series. Maggie is a reporter for a local tabloid who is currently undercover working as a waitress in a strip club. She is working at the strip club to get the scoop on celebrities who visit the club. Shane is the head of security at the club.
The attraction and sexual tension between Shane and Maggie is palpable. Neither is willing to act on their attraction since getting involved with one another is against the rules of working at the club. They continuously get thrown into situations together which makes it harder for them to not act on their attraction.
Maggie ends up the only witness to a crime which makes her a loose end that needs tied up. Shane tries to keep her safe from two different mob families and a hitman and they end up on the run. They do not know who they can trust. Shane promises to keep Maggie safe. While on the run together they can no longer fight their building attraction. They fall hard and fast for each other. After being on the run for a few days, they obtain some unexpected help and are kept safe. The love they have for each other is so strong and they did not fight their feelings for one another.

It was very refreshing to read a book that did not have the couple break up briefly only to then realize they love each other. They had a couple rocky moments, but never ran away. They faced their problems head on. Shane was upset at first when he found out Maggie (who he thought was Meghan) was actually a reporter, but he had a secret he was keeping as well so he did not stay mad long.
This book is full of action and red hot sexual energy. I love mysteries with romance mixed in. I really enjoyed this book and will be checking out the other books in the series in the future.
