Series: Dirty Nasty Freaks #1
Author: Callie Hart
Release date: 30 March 2018
Main characters: Sera Lafferty, determined heroine who has an important wedding to get to. Felix ‘Fix’ Marcosa, not your average hitman, and trouble with a capital T.
Plot: Sera Lafferty has a wedding to get to – it’ll be a long drive, but she could make if the weather would just cooperate. Far from getting better, when a freak storm settles on the small town she’s in, she has no choice but to seek refuge in the town’s only motel. Far from impressed with the rundown establishment, she’s even less impressed when she has to share the motel’s last room with a surly stranger. He’s rude, sarcastic and hellbent on pushing her buttons it seems. He’s huge and also sexy as sin…
Felix ‘Fix’ Marcosa is on a mission. He hasn’t got time to deal with the sparky woman in front of him. She’s not his type anyway. He was supposed to be in and out and on to the next job – but the weather put pay to that. With no choice but to take shelter for the night, Fix decides there’s no reason not to get to know Sera a little. What harm could it do? By morning they’ll be back on the road and on their separate journeys once more. A little conversation and a lot of tequila later and the clear cut plan has become a little more complicated…
Why you should read it: I confess that I didn’t do my homework with this book – I saw that it was written by Callie Hart and that was all I needed to know – I was definitely reviewing it. I didn’t know it was only part 1 in the story – what a fool I was! I devoured the book and now I’m like – how long do I have to wait for part 2?! How many parts are there to this series? Will it be an epic ride like the Blood and Roses series, or a duet? I have so many questions! Anyway, I digress. I loved this book’s energy. Fix is filthy and inappropriate, while Sera is funny, foulmouthed and has a lot of moxie. Some of their dialogue made me laugh out loud – especially when they get to the wedding – I won’t spoil it for you. The chemistry was hot, hot, hot and I enjoyed the depths of the characters. You won’t believe Fix’s back story – I was completely enthralled by him and his past life.
What you may not like: If you’re a Callie Hart fan, like a bad man and a strong heroine, you should be happy with this. If you don’t like a hero with a dirty mouth (not kidding, the man is filthy) then you might struggle. Sera gives as good as she gets too – so if you’re sensitive to particularly bad language and graphic sexual references – maybe try a sample first!
Rating: 4/5 for one heck of a ride and a darn good story. I need closure right now – and I really hope part 2 is in the offing as soon as possible!
