Review ~ Dirty Work

DW_TeaserLIVEDIRTY WORK by Chelle Bliss & Brenda Rothert is now live!
A brand new romantic standalone you won’t want to miss!
Politics have never been so dirty…

From authors Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert comes a smoldering standalone enemies to lovers romance that will, ahem…check all your boxes.
I hate him. Jude Titan is everything that’s wrong with the male sex: cocky, domineering and loaded with swagger. Oh, and did I mention he’s a Republican? Yeah, the guy’s so conservative he leans to the right when walking. And lucky me, I’m running against him for Senate. But I’ve got plenty of fight in me. A golden boy war hero opponent with a smile that leaves melted panties in its wake? Bring. It. On.

Damn, she’s sexy. Reagan Preston intrigues me from the moment I lay eyes on her. And speaking of laying…I want between those thighs. But I want to make her burn for me first. Every debate and stolen moment is foreplay for us. She claims she hates me, but her body tells a different story. I plan to win this election, but I also want to win the sharp, fiery Democrat who captures my attention like no woman ever has. Politics is filthy, just like all the things I want to do to Reagan Preston.

I’m in love with Jude and Reagan. I want them plastered everywhere in Washington so all of those people can get a freaking clue.

Dirty Work is amazing for a few reasons. I’m in a list kinda mood, so that’s what you’re getting.

1. The MCs are people you can root for. The. Whole. Time. Now, there were moments I didn’t agree with one or the others actions and/or words. But that’s because I’m not a robot, and neither are they. (Don’t you love it when I treat characters like living people? LOL)

2. The not-so-hidden message beneath the romance is beautiful. It is also idealistic and unlikely, but I don’t care. I read romance to find love, hope, and peace. I found all of that and some great sex.

3. Lexi rocks as a BFF. She’s supportive, kind, and feisty.

4. There are some screwed up characters too. Remember that idealism? Well, there isn’t so much that Chelle and Brenda couldn’t throw in some pretty deplorable humans (note: ten used lightly). But these peeps still had depth and played very important roles.

5. There isn’t enough political discussion that you end up disliking anyone over it. This was my big fear, and I get fired up pretty easily. So no worries, okay?

6. Um, hello! It’s a Chelle book that less me to another great author. I’ve seen co-written books not gel before, but I’m pretty sure these two chicks have their Dr. Scholl’s in.

Now let’s get a little personal… Because this book evoked a lot of shit inside my little mind. *Note* there is an onslaught of cussing ahead. Walk away now if you’re satisfied.

Still here?

Ok, let’s go.

There is something you need to know about Jude Titan and Reagan Preston. It’s fucking important. They are EXACTLY how our fucked up, shitty-ass politicians SHOULD act. Not the petty, bullshit, corrupt shit-heads we have now.  I was literally near tears at points in this story, and it wasn’t all because of how sweet and spicy Jude and Reagan’s relationship was. It’s not because of the twists and turns, well, not completely.


It was because I was so fucking sad for out country. We don’t have a Jude or a Reagan. We have, well I won’t even name them, but you’ll know who I’m talking about when you see it.

The thing about Dirty Work that really struck me was how much HOPE was ignited in me. I really, really hope that one day we find someone that we can #Trust. Then depression set in because, sheesh, is there real hope? But I have an idea:

If EVERYONE in America read this book, they would see how awesome it would bee if we stopped letting ASSHOLES win. So, my plan, it involves you, so pay attention…

Tell your friends, family, co-workers, and strangers on the street to read Dirty Work. Let someone borrow a copy from you. Suggest it to your local library. Ask Barnes & Noble to stock it. This increases the chance that the *right* person will read it. They’ll be inspired to be that guy/gal on the floor standing up for veterans, women, children, the rich, the poor, ALL OF US.

It’s worth a shot, yeah?
