In #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel van Dyken’s scorching series, revenge is a justified pleasure…
Isla made one teeny little mistake. Now she and her PI company, Dirty Exes, are being targeted by one seriously angry and furiously sexy ex-quarterback. Jessie freakin’ Beckett. But there’s no way some NFL superhunk is going to take her business away. If only he didn’t make her so hot—and bothered.
Jessie wants payback for a ruined reputation. His plan? Top secret. His hard-to-hide arousal for Isla? Not so much. Especially when they let down their guards and sneak a kiss. Like any juicy scandal, it goes so viral, so fast, that only a good lie can combat the bad press. Mortal enemies in a fling? No way. Um…this is love!
Actually…could it be?
Isla’s not faking it. Jessie can’t. As the game of let’s pretend gets real, Jessie forgets all about revenge. That’s the problem. His plan is already out of his control. Now it could undo everything they’ve been trying to build. Coming clean may be the only thing that can save it.
“I thought my life was over that day in the wine shop.
And then I met my soon-to-be-best-friend Blaire and realized…
It had only just begun.”

I love these characters and this series. It’s a spin-off (ish) from The Wingman Inc series about Ian’s sisters. This one is about her friend and business partner, Isla and Blaire’s ex-boyfriend Jessie.
I fell hard for Dirty Exes, the first book in this series. That book was intense with the amount of chemistry Colin and Blaire had. Jessie and Isla had a right amount of chemistry, but this didn’t hit me as hard as the first book did. There was a nice amount of humor in this book and a light amount of angst. Although these two books could be considered standalones, this book’s story is the result of events that happened from the first book. I really recommend reading them in order.
Rachel does angst, intense drama, and heart-wrenching stories amazingly. She does smoking hot sexy time scenes with perfection, and then there are books like this. The lighter ones, the ones with humor, and the ones with a little bit of sass and a little bit of heart flutters. Rachel does this beautifully. You see, she has a little bit of everything for every one of your moods or reading styles. No matter what you are looking for I recommend checking her out and this book was an excellent example of why I say that.
