Some bad girls need a firm hand to keep them in line.
I’m bad enough to need two.
Two older men who can teach me a lesson when I misbehave.
Two hot bodies to keep me warm in bed at night.
Two best friends who can learn to share a filthy-mouthed little brat like me.
After all… dirty girls need very dirty daddies.
Carrie Wells is nothing but trouble.
She’s wild and difficult. Not worth anyone’s time.
Carrie Wells is a beautiful little brat. She’s also a vulnerable young adult on my case list.
She’s half my age and totally off limits. I’m breaking every rule in the book by giving her somewhere to stay when she’s out on the streets with nowhere to go. And I’m breaking every rule of friendship by holing her up in my best friend Jack’s house while he’s away on business.
I thought life was difficult enough when I fell for the girl, but it gets a whole lot harder when Jack comes home early and finds a beautiful stranger causing chaos in his house.
And a whole lot harder still when he falls for her too.
He’s the one guy on this planet I’d share my last supper with. I’d share it gladly.
I’m just not so sure how I feel about sharing Carrie Wells.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
4 Stars to Dirty Daddies by Jade West.
Carrie, Matt, and Jack…….
One of the things I really love about Jade West’s books are the depth and complexity within her characters. Yes, her books are dirty, raunchy and taboo. However, her stories are not just sex. With all the books of hers I have read, my experience is reading stories filled not only with heat, but strong emotions. All the feels are there. That in particular is an aspect of writing I appreciate and look for in erotic romance. Come on…if we are looking to read simply porn, there are many authors of erotica that give us just that.
I have nothing against books that are strictly sex; they are just not for me. I’m a big romantic and I enjoy a story with background and characters that are emotionally flawed and needing a hero.
Dirty Daddies definitely had its deliciously dirty moments, but there was so much more.
I was not a huge fan of Carrie for most of the book. Yes, she is very young and had less than happy experiences in her short life that shaped her to be cautious, unable to trust, rude and even crude. Despite those aspects of her character, she was an innocent young girl. But on the outside, Carrie was in need of redemption.
Matt….. I adored Matt. He was an emotional and moral character. Matt was a counselor to troubled youths who was assigned to Carrie. In case you were wondering there is a significant age difference. For the several months he had been seeing Carrie in a professional capacity. Matt has ignored his growing attraction to her. But it is getting harder and harder. And soon Carrie will be a legal adult and Matt will not be able to see her in a professional capacity any longer. And still he wouldn’t pursue his growing feelings for her. I’ll say it again…..I loved his character!
Jack is Matt’s best friend. Jack can see that his friend has feelings for Carrie. Jack also agrees with Matt that she shouldn’t act on them. But when Jack finds himself fighting his own feelings for Carrie, he knows they are in trouble. Especially himself because his willpower isn’t as ironclad as Matt’s.
There was some angst and light suspense. I loved watching the tension around Carrie, Matt and Jack grow and thicken. Their relationship dynamic was inevitably going to change. Even with their reservations, Carrie’s wiles were no match for the sexy, older experienced men. I was so happy to have a front row seat to their happily ever after.
This is my honest and unbiased review.
