They’re serving up some red-hot revenge. A sizzling series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel van Dyken.

Blaire has never quite gotten over Jessie Beckett, the ex–NFL star whose kisses were hot enough to ignite the entire Eastern Seaboard. When he chose work over her, Blaire was left brokenhearted. Why else would she have married a skeezy two-timer, just to divorce him less than a year later?

Now Blaire is getting even by becoming one half of Dirty Exes, a PI firm fully committed to humiliating cheating jerks. If only the new jerk she’s been hired to uncover wasn’t Jessie Beckett himself.

Exposing Jessie isn’t going to be easy, especially when she still daydreams about his sexy smile. Further complicating matters is Colin, Jessie’s best friend. He’s gorgeous, a little bit cunning, and willing to help Blaire get the inside scoop on Jessie—for a price.

Now caught between two men—one totally right and the other totally wrong—Blaire will need to decide just how much she’s willing to risk…and whom she’s willing to risk it for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute heroine and steamy hero This was a fun read with some angst and a bit of drama. It’s got the love triangle feel to it which I’m not a fan of, thus some of the angst on my part. However, I’ve read other love triangles by this author and they are pretty easy to work through unless you like a really deep, deep love triangle. I actually loved the way this one worked itself out. This has the typical Van Dyken humor which was perfect and characters that I fell in love with and curious to see what’s going to happen next with them. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book provided by NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lighthearted , enjoyable, playful DIRTY EXES is the first instalment in Rachel Van Dyken’s contemporary, adult LIARS, INC romance series- a spin off from the author’s WINGMEN, Inc series. This is PI Blaire Hunter, former NFL star Jessie Beckett, and wealthy hotel owner Colin Buchanon’s story line. Blaire is the sister of Ian Hunter (The Matchmaker’s Playbook). Told from three, first person points of view (Blaire, Colin and Jessie) DIRTY EXES follows self-appointed PI Blaire Hunter, along with her business partner Isla, as they are tasked with uncovering cheating husbands and wives. Blaire knows the heartbreak of rejection, and the humiliation of finding your husband in bed with another woman. Commiserating together about their unfortunate choices in life, Blaire and Isla formed ‘Dirty Exes’ in an effort to expose liars and cheats. Their latest assignment brings Blaire face to face with the man who broke her heart years earlier, former NFL star Jessie Becket, whose wife has hired Dirty Exes in an effort to unmask the truth. Enter billionaire hotel owner Colin, Jessie’s best friend and ‘second’, and the man with whom Blaire will fall in love. What ensues is the search for the truth, as Blaire goes undercover to take down the man she has fantasized about for close to fifteen years, as his best friend fantasizes about the woman who has stolen his heart. DIRTY EXES is a fun, flirty and sexy story line. The one on one, back and forth banter between Blaire and Colin is priceless. From the outset, Colin is a man determined to seduce our story line heroine, and in this, we are unsure as to his intent knowing his best friend Jessie still has feelings for the woman with whom Colin will fall in love. DIRTY EXES is not a love triangle romance, in fact, Blaire keeps her distance from Jessie, as she is tasked with uncovering the truth about the man she once thought she loved. Appearances can be deceiving; Jessie’s wife Vanessa is a piece of work, and her ‘love’ for her husband runs only skin deep. The relationship between Colin and Blaire begins accidentally. Blaire is a bit of a klutz, and constantly finds herself in embarrassing situations including cowering on the floor, and locking herself in a superstar’s food pantry. Colin’s slow seduction of Blaire is rife with humorous sexual innuendo, fun texting, and the honest truth. The $ex scenes are intimate, seductive and passionate without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. The world building follows the start-up and ongoing business between two friends whose lives were destroyed on the same night, years before. Betrayal is ugly; revenge is sweet. The premise is spirited and lively; the characters are colorful, fun, and sweet; the romance is exquisite and captivating. DIRTY EXES is a light hearted, enjoyable and playful story line.
