Dirty Sexy Saint (Dirty Sexy, #1)

This book… what can I say, I couldn’t get into it. The characters are unrealistic and the plot doesn’t make sense…

Synopsis:
Clay Kincaid knows he’s more a sinner than a saint. Especially when it comes to women. With a rough and damaged past that has left him jaded, he doesn’t do committed relationships. But he does like sex—the hotter and harder, the better. He likes it fast and filthy, which is why he refuses to even touch someone as sweet and guileless as Samantha Jamieson. Until he discovers that she likes it just as down and dirty as he does. Let the sinning begin . . .

Review:
Samantha was groomed to be the perfect Stepford wife. So it comes as no surprise when her farther announces to her boyfriend of 8 months that it is time for them to get married. The way her father handles Samantha is closer to a business deal and this ends up being the deal that breaks her. Leaving everything behind, including her wealth, she escapes her life. 

Clay, known as Saint clay, is supposedly this bad boy who is secretly rich. Expect he helps those close to him, including strangers. Which is exactly how he meets and begins helping Samantha. He lets her stay at his apartment, gives her a waitressing job at his bar, buys her clothes, and then a whole pastry chef ensemble because that is her dream job. But he’s not good enough for her  because he likes kinky sex. So he tries to stays away but as you can imagine that doesn’t work out. Samantha ends up giving Clay a blowjob and they end up having missionary sex in his office. He’s a kink master, folks.

The plot is weak and unrealistic. Samantha’s character is a contradiction and I couldn’t help but roll my eyes over what happens. I’m sorry but this book was not for me. I found myself skimming most of the pages until I eventually put it down. This book is off to the DNF Graveyard..

Synopsis:
Dina DeMille doesn’t run your typical Bed and Breakfast. Her inn defies laws of physics, her fluffy dog is secretly a monster, and the only paying guest is a former Galactic tyrant with a price on her head. But the inn needs guests to thrive, and guests have been scarce, so when an Arbitrator shows up at Dina’s door and asks her to host a peace summit between three warring species, she jumps on the chance.

Unfortunately, for Dina, keeping the peace between Space Vampires, the Hope-Crushing Horde, and the devious Merchants of Baha-char is much easier said than done. On top of keeping her guests from murdering each other, she must find a chef, remodel the inn…and risk everything, even her life, to save the man she might fall in love with. But then it’s all in the day’s work for an Innkeeper…

Review:
Six months later, this book opens with a similar problem as before, the inn Dina runs only has one guest. For her and the inn to grow stronger, they need more guests. If only Dina knew how to attract more guests.. Just as she is trying to solve her dilemma, an arbitrator by the name of George stops by. And as you can imagine, he holds the key to her problem- host 30 magical beings while they try to come to an agreement without killing each other. And although this is highly dangerous, this is just the thing she needs to save her inn. 

Preparations didn’t go as smoothly as Dina would hope and she soon finds herself stretched for time and money. With less than a day and still needing to find a chef, she comes across the perfect solution. Hire a chef who lost his ranking because he was accused of poisoning a guest. But the chef she hires, Orro, is absolutely wonderful! I found myself laughing at his dramatic speeches and just loving his character. 

As you can imagine, other obstacles come up and many things go wrong. And to top all this off, Dina is constantly mourning for Shawn. But honestly, what would this book be without a little drama and sexual angst. Except when Shawn returns, he isn’t himself. The old Shawn seems to be a figment of the past and the new one is haunted by war and death.

I really enjoyed this book. There were parts that seemed to drag and that were full of too much, slightly boring, information. The end of the book almost brought tears, but that’s probably because as a mother my greatest fear is losing my children. Trust me, if you read the book, you will understand the connection. I loved all the characters and am grateful the author decided against a love triangle. I’m not sure where Sean and Dina stand, but I’m sure it will be fun finding out.
