Alex Dawn is saying no to men. No to bad relationships, disappointments, and smooth-talkers. Focusing on her family and her job at Payton and Sons Automotive keeps her mind occupied and her heart content. She doesn’t really miss a man’s touch, until one night, a man shows up with the body of a god and a voice from her dirtiest dreams.
L.M. Spencer is only in Tory, Maryland, to scope out the town as a possible site for one of his company's hotels. The British businessman didn’t expect his car to break down or to find the hottest little American he’s ever seen holding a tire iron, piercing him with bright blue eyes.
They agree to one hot night, one dirty deed to burn out the chemistry between them. But from their first kiss, Alex can’t stop saying yes to this man. And when Spencer’s company threatens everything she cares about, they must make the choice to stand together or apart.
Dirty Deeds is the third book in the Mechanics of Love series by Megan Erickson. It is the story of Ivy’s sister- Alex. I am going to let you guys in on a little confession…I totally thought this was the second book in the series. I had no idea that Megan Erickson snuck book 2 by me completely. I am so bummed that I missed Brent’s story. I have to go back and read that ASAP. The second book is also where we find the link from the Payton boys to the new girl at their garage- Alex. ivy is Brent’s love interest from book 2, and Alex is her sister. I was able to figure it all out on my own, and wasn’t lost at all while reading, but it would have been nice to have known all that going in. (which is why I am telling you guys)
Dirty Deeds is every bit as good as the first book, Dirty Thoughts. I might have even liked it more than Cal’s story. Alex has been hurt in the past, that you can tell right from the start when she won’t even say her ex’s name. He is just “he”. Slowly, as the story unfolds, Alex shares more and more of her past with Spencer and the reader. I really liked this because it never felt like Alex was forcing her sob story on anyone. It just came out naturally as she shares parts of herself.
And Spencer was a breath of fresh air. A couple of times while I was reading, I thought I had spotted a few well placed character cliches (nothing wrong with them! I just like to think I am really good at predicting them.) but then Megan Erickson had to go and blow my record out of the water. Every single time I thought something was cliche about Spencer, he went and proved me wrong. I can’t adequately describe how much I love him. How unassuming he is and how fresh he felt as a character to me. His beauty was in his subtleties. I loved how taken he was with Alex, right from the start. And not just for the obvious reasons. He really liked her as a person. (which I know seems like a given, but I really really felt it from him.)
I am so in love with Megan Erickson’s books. She is such a solidly great romance author. He stories always feel fresh, the writing and characters are always perfect and the romance is just the way I like it. I can’t get enough of her. Someone please bring me book 2 so I can read it ASAP.
