LEANN'S REVIEW: Dirty Little Lies (Clare James)

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00005]
Title: Dirty Little Lies
Author: Clare James
Release Date: January 25, 2014
Twenty-nine-year-old Stevie Sinclair has just lost everything: her boyfriend, her apartment, even her ugly bird named Free. (Yeah, she knows it’s stupid name, so don’t start.) But most importantly, Stevie’s lost herself.
As she shuffles through her days in worn-out Hello Kitty PJs—eating ice cream, sipping wine, and contemplating her next move—a magazine article catches her attention. Blaring black letters read: "How to Get Your Sexy Back in Six Easy Steps." Stevie studies the article in the trashy magazine like the good student she is and immediately knows what she has to do. With the magazine article in hand, and a bottle of red in her bag, Stevie embarks on a journey to reclaim her life and win back her ex. Until she meets Gabe Shannon. Gorgeous, single, and on a quest of his own, Gabe introduces Stevie to a lifestyle that is sure to help get her sexy back and then some. If she doesn’t chicken out … (Oh, you know where this is going.) What follows is a story of self-discovery, romantic gestures, erotic encounters, and following one's heart--even if it leads in unexpected directions. Portions originally published online as The Club e-series, Dirty Little Lies now has 70% more content, chapters from Gabe's point of view, and a sizzling conclusion to this steamy tale.

I go still, his words coursing through every part of my body. My mouth goes dry, nipples tighten, sparks fly down my spine, moisture pools between my legs, and bam!
Is there such thing as spontaneous orgasm? Because if there is, I think I just had one.
Once I recover, I’m adamant not to let him embarrass me. Confident and assertive, that’s what I am now.
In a bold move, I glance under the table. There’s no denying what I see, his arousal strains behind the zipper of his pants. It’s a sight that ignites every fiber of my being. Still, I try to play it off when I look up.
He growls before swiftly clamping his hand down on my thigh.
I lose the act immediately, and my eyelids flutter closed as his hand moves upward, tracing the hem of my dress. 


This just might be one of the strangest playlists ever, but once you meet Stevie Sinclair you’ll understand why. She is a spunky, eclectic character who loves old movies and romance and fun.  These tunes are some of her favorites and they were a blast to listen to as I wrote DIRTY LITTLE LIES. Now go out and listen to these songs (especially Marvin Gaye) – they are guaranteed to help you get your sexy back!!

·         Let's Get It On by Marvin Gaye

Wow! I don't even know where to begin. I guess I will start off at the beginning! I loved it from page one! I love Stevie. Not the biggest fan of Max, but then Gabe comes along.... Hello smokin alpha.

I loved this book. The characters are great and you have the perfect story line to keep you hooked all the way through. Once I started reading I couldn't put this book down. Gabe is probably my favorite character in this book. He is his own kind of sexy. 

Overall, this is a read you will want to pick up for 2014. Its truly captivating. I found myself laughing at parts and sitting on the edge of my seat at others. I highly recommend this fun and captivating read!!!
