Gabe Shannon has just been schooled … in the art of kink, that is.
After a heartbreaking loss, this broken man spins out of control until a whirlwind friendship with a stripper named Tash takes over his life.
With Tash at his side, the two embark on a crazy tour of Chicago’s underground world of pleasure. Yes, he’s gone into a deep, dark, and dirty (make that D.I.R.T.Y.) world that he never really knew existed. And surprisingly, he discovers he likes it. Quite a lot.
But the reserved entrepreneur soon realizes that hanging from the chandeliers every night is not all it’s cracked up to be. Well, it is … but it’d sure be a lot more fun if it meant something.
This erotic tale can be read as an introduction to the Bestselling Quick and Dirty Series, or to learn more about the gorgeous Gabe Shannon anytime during the series. DIRTY is not a mandatory read, but you may enjoy the series more after you roam around in Gabe’s head a bit.
DIRTY tells the story of how Gabe started exploring his dirty side, came to own Club Venus, and met the crazy beautiful Stevie Sinclair.
HOT HOT HOT!!!
Dirty is the prequel novella to the Quick and Dirty series so it’s job is to give you the background as to how Club Venus came to be and a little back story on Gabe Shannon, the main character from the series. And apparently, also to keep you hot and bothered for approximately 100 pages.
WOW! Clare James you naughty lady.. 😉 When I got the email about signing up for the Dirty blog tour, it said something along the lines of “this book contains a little more sexiness than my books usually do”. Well, sign me up! Boy, she wasn’t joking. From page 1 this story is over-the-top filled with hotness while somehow maintaining the integrity of the storyline which a lot of authors are not able to do. I am familiar with the rest of the series, but if you haven’t read Dirty Little Lies and Dirty Little Tricks, this book would be the best place to start as it really does explain how the club came to be and gives a lot of insight into Gabe’s thought process.
I really loved it and thought it was just the perfect novella to start off the series. I was given the unedited version in exchanged for my honest opinion and my spot on this blog tour. I appreciate it very much. 5*****wickedgoodstars for Dirty by Clare James 🙂

DIRTY LITTLE LIES:
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 a 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.)
