~REVIEW~ Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren

Title: Dirty Rowdy Thing (Wild Seasons #2)
Published: 11/14/2014 by Gallery Books
Author: Christina Lauren
Genre: Romance/Erotica

From the New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player, Book Two of the brand-new Wild Seasons series that started with Sweet Filthy Boy—a story of friends, love, and lust.

Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don’t even like each other...which would explain why their marriage lasted only twelve hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she’s too similar to the rugged fisherman—or just what he needs

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Christina Lauren gives good story. Not only do they give a good storyline, they make it H-O-T! So the book wasn't just straight up smut, it had great character development and depth and plot.

This series is just growing and expanding. Finn is the epitamy of rugged, sexy, alpha male. He's definitely going to leave you hot and bothered and trying to guess what's behind his stoic exterior.

Harlow Vega, sassy Latina ginger...odd combination, right?? She actually reminds me if a good friend of mine, LOL. She's smart, funny, and LOUD! My kind of girl! I could see myself hanging with her and Mr. Farley having a beer:p
Not the kind of girl Finn thinks she is either. There is so much more to Harlow then meets the eye. Finn is about to get a dose of it.

Both have "issues" going on in their lives that they're trying to not talk about, and lose themselves in each other, but, it becomes "more". Its inevitable that its going to happen the closer they get.

The book is from multiple perspectives, each chapter is one or the others POV and I though the authors did very well with this, it felt very fluid.

In the background, we have a few side characters that I smell a romance a-brewin' and I'm totally "geeked" out for it!! O.O!

Dirty Rowdy Thing (Wild Seasons, #2)

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really liked this book, even more than I was expecting I would. I super adore getting to know all the friends more and more. I appreciate how different each couple is.

Ansel from the first book still pops up some, and I still love him. He's so outgoing and majorly lovable and silly.
Finn is more reserved. I like the strong, silent type as well. I definitely respect a man who works hard for a living. Finn is a decision maker and provider. Of course I fell for him too. Finn also comes with special bedroom tricks.
"Finn is sweet, and funny and stoic in this way that is totally foreign to me but I actually really appreciate, coming from the Family That Discusses Everything. And he's hot. Dear Lord, you guys. Finn in bed is no joke. And he's not a whiny La Jolla mama's boy, he's a man who was raised to get shit done, and not cry over hangnails. Finn could break your vagina and be just handy enough to put it back together."

As far as female leads go, I love Harlow. She is so refreshing. She's not a wimp or a badass on a mission. She real and honest and open. I think I have a lady crush, seriously. It's not rare at all for me to have the hots for the male lead, but falling for the chick is otherworldly.
"Shh, Poodle. I'm having a Johnny Castle, Dirty Dancing moment right now."
"Is this a good thing or a bad thing?" he asks, bending to lick up my neck.
"I carried a watermelon."
He pulls back and looks at me before ducking to sniff my breath. "How drunk are you?"
"For the love of God, man, I'm not drunk. Get naked or put that mouth between my legs."

The relationship between these two is awesome for the most part. They usually just say what they mean. Not much beating around the bush or miscommunication. They are both going through their own hard times which causes some issues, but there is no denying the pull they have to each other.

Of course, as usual, I have to give credit to any Harry Potter reference.
"That's because Ansel's over there trying to suck your soul out through your mouth like some sort of Dementor."

There is some drama, but I'm grateful to have characters behave mostly maturely. Great book, and I'm looking forward to more from this series.
