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 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.)

What follows is a story of self-discovery, romantic gestures, erotic encounters, and following one’s heart–even if it leads in unexpected directions.

Portions originally published online as The Club e-series, Dirty Little Lies now has 70% more content, chapters from Gabe’s point of view, and a sizzling conclusion to this steamy tale.

 ***Contains Graphic Sex, Strong Language and Adult Situations. Not for young readers***

Stevie and her boyfriend Max have been a dry spell for a while.  Even though they love each other so much Stevie thinks she may need a change and one night she thinks its coming, but with little payoff. Max has to go out of town for a business meeting and while Stevie helps him pack she comes across condoms in his bag…the only problem is they don’t to use condoms because she’s on the pill.  After some angry words and tears Max goes on his trip and Stevie packs her bags.  She sees a magazine article that says how she should change her sex life so she decides that even though they broke up she is going to win Max back.  She goes to a hotel up the street and in the hotel bar she meets Gabe.  The most gorgeous blue eyed guy she’d ever seen.  She tells Gabe about her troubles and he tells her to write down all her sexual fantasies, forget the magazine article, and to forget about Max because he is going to help her.  Gabe and Stevie start to become really close but after a misunderstanding someone surprising comes back into Stevie’s life with a huge revelation!

Will Gabe and Stevie stay together or will the surprise guest tear them apart?

I loved this story so much. It was so engaging and such a cute read. Even though I thought it would be predictable and I though “oh I know how this will end” it totally ends differently and it was such a good story. I will look for other stories by her and read all of them. Totally 5 out of 5 stars.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading this book, but I was pleasantly surprised and instantly hooked.  I began the story in the morning and finished by mid afternoon as I was not able to stop reading, I had to see where it was going and what was going to happen!  I couldn’t explain the compulsion I felt about finishing the book other than it was that good!!

I loved the chemistry, the characters, the relationships but most importantly that the story contained graphic scenes and scenarios but that there was a real story and plot that went above and beyond them. There was a back story and there were details that lead up to the characters becoming who they were and what the book was about.  A must read for all that enjoy romance, heartbreak and new love. Add this one to your To Be Read list next!!
