No dirty deed goes unnoticed in a seductive game of cat and mouse. But for Alec and Gaige, the wrong move could get them killed.
Alec Drummond didn’t make his billions by playing nice—or by playing much at all. When it comes to pleasure, Alec only has time for whatever’s quick and easy, which is exactly what he gets from his company’s hot new computer genius. But Gaige Owens isn’t some pushover. He pushes back, and it’s giving Alec a rush. The question is, could Gaige be the one who’s leaking trade secrets? Just to be safe, Alec keeps him close at hand . . . night and day.
Gaige never thought he’d roll over for a man like Alec again, but who could resist sex this mind-blowing? Then there’s the draw of Alec’s mysterious side: his cutthroat ambition, his covert CIA connections, and the murder in his past. For Gaige, a deeper look proves an irresistible temptation. But when Gaige and Alec are stripped of their defenses by an unseen danger, everything they don’t know could bring them closer together—or tear them apart. Only one thing is certain: Before it’s all over, someone’s going down.
Dirty Deeds was a difficult book for me to get into. It wasn’t bad and there were several interesting elements along with lots of hot sexy time between Alec and Gaige. I think what really sealed the deal for me was the interactions between Gaige and Alec. These men really didn’t want to be involved. The attraction was there and almost immediate but they fought their feelings for each other every step of the way and the battle was delicious.
Gaige Owens is tired of being used. He wants nothing to do with the CIA or their machinations. But, alas, he finds himself neck deep in more tech games and things that have nothing to do with him. He wasn’t prepared for multi-billionaire Alec Drummond’s company to be involved in the latest stunt the CIA involves him in. He was also not prepared for the immediate attraction he felt for Alec or for it to be reciprocated.
Alec doesn’t want to trust Gaige but the more time they spend together and the deeper involved they get he finds himself doing just that.
This book has some high intensity, action packed moments. I wanted more relationship building, more emotional entanglements between Alec and Gaige. There were some tender moments and you can definitely feel the shift and see them start to build something more solid together.
Dirty Deeds is a whodunit, thrill ride. Lots of secrets and the mystery element are definitely there.
Overall, this was pretty good. I’m hopeful for the series and look forward to book 2….
