From authors Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert comes a smoldering standalone enemies to lovers romance that will, ahem…check all your boxes.
I hate him. Jude Titan is everything that’s wrong with the male sex: cocky, domineering and loaded with swagger. Oh, and did I mention he’s a Republican? Yeah, the guy’s so conservative he leans to the right when walking. And lucky me, I’m running against him for Senate. But I’ve got plenty of fight in me. A golden boy war hero opponent with a smile that leaves melted panties in its wake? Bring. It. On.
Damn, she’s sexy. Reagan Preston intrigues me from the moment I lay eyes on her. And speaking of laying…I want between those thighs. But I want to make her burn for me first. Every debate and stolen moment is foreplay for us. She claims she hates me, but her body tells a different story. I plan to win this election, but I also want to win the sharp, fiery Democrat who captures my attention like no woman ever has. Politics is filthy, just like all the things I want to do to Reagan Preston.
I need to remind myself that we’re not friends.
We’ll never be friends.
She’s the enemy.
She may not have a rifle pointed at my head, but her beautiful, angelic face is gunning for me in another way. There’s nothing she’d like more than to see me fail. My failure is her victory.
Jude Titan is ready. A decorated war hero with a heart for the people, Jude wants nothing more than to represent them. What he lacks in experience, he more than makes up for with his passion and integrity, and he’s bringing everything that he has to the fight for Senator of the great state of Illinois. Reagan Preston is heiress apparent to that seat in Senate. With the backing of her politico father and the Preston name, Reagan is set to win the voters’ hearts and win the election. With so much at stake, there’s no room for fraternizing with the enemy. The best laid plans…
Authors Brenda Rothert and Chelle Bliss have brought their individual talents together to create a book that was a joy to read. I loved Jude right away, with his cocky, confident air, coupled with his Everyman ideology and heart of gold. Jude loves with all of himself, and he is totally dedicated to the veterans that have served the United States, often to their detriment. His passion for equality and service is what drives him, and his earnest demeanor is what gains him popularity in the polls.
Reagan has earned the title of uptight ice queen, but, beneath it all, she’s just trying to do the right thing. All she wants is to earn the seat in Senate on her own steam, without the shadow of her father and his legacy. When Jude enters her orbit, she’s thrown for a loop, knocked off kilter by the passion that flares whenever they are near each other. The two of them are on a direct collision course, and sparks, snark, and sass are constantly flying left and right. I loved it!
Brenda and Chelle have really outdone themselves with DIRTY WORK. Full of passion, political intrigue, and witty sexy banter, this is a book that I could not put down. The ladies have created two characters that appeal on so many levels, and that I just could not help but want to see together. 4.5 stars for this savvy, tightly-written whirlwind of a book. Get it and read it. And, I dare you not to fall in love with Jude… 😉
