Juliet (Unravel Me), Nikki(How to Knit a Wild Bikini) and Cassie are three half-sisters sired from the same sperm donor. Of the three sisters, Cassie has had a need to find family and reconnect with her half-siblings and the donor. In Dirty Sexy Knitting, Cassie and Gabe's story concludes.
This was my favorite out of the three books. The two main characters each had their flaws and they fit well together in spite of and because of them. Cassie with her big heart has rescued a tortured Gabe from bar after bar, drunken spree after drunken spree over a two year period as he mourns for his wife and daughter who were killed by a drunk driver.

In Dirty Sexy Knitting, the two find their way to love.

True love--especially in romance books--never runs smooth and these two are no exception! There is chemistry between them, the plot is good, and there is some suspense through a series of unexplained fires and sabotaging.

The negatives of the book include Cassie's big heart which makes her seem a bit like a doormat. Gabe wallows in self-pity about his wife and daughter's death long after he should have started some healing. The person behind the fires and sabotage is a bit unbelievable as the author did not lay a proper foundation in my opinion for him to be behind the acts.

This is a good solid addition to the contemporary romance genre. Although it is not necessary to read the previous two books with Nikki and Juliet's story, it would help make the story more cohesive.

Cassandra Riley is depressed. It is her thirtieth birthday and no one is around to celebrate it with her. Nikki and Juliet are both off with the men they love but Cassandra is alone. The man she loves will never be hers. Gabe Kincaid is her landlord and friend. He has lost his family in a horrible car crash and has been wanting to join them in the after life ever since. Cassandra keeps bailing him out but one night is going to change everything between them, making Cassandra wonder if pining for a man that will never love her is really worth the trouble. But when a series of misfortunes happen to Cassandra, Gabe realizes once and for all he must decide to do something or he might just loose Cassandra to a madman before he can discover if he really loves her or not.

Dirty Sexy Knitting by Christie Ridgway is really a fun, sweet read. I loved the references to yarns, and crochet and knitting. I am fiber artist myself and could really relate to this part of the story. Gabe is a tortured hero. He has lost his family, and he feels like he failed them when they were alive. He didn't give his all to them. He could have done things better. He is wallowing in his guilt and pain when we meet him. Cassandra is witty, creative and resourceful. I love her spunk. She has tons of spunk. She doesn't allow herself to wallow too long. She is able to evaluate her life and take stock of it. I liked that about her. She is not weak. She has hung in there a long time waiting for Gabe. Hopefully it will be worth the wait. When these two get together the chemistry is off the charts. But Cassandra has many misfortunes happening to her and her knitting shop. Is someone trying to kill her? If so why? The hint of mystery will keep you turning the pages of this novel. When you want a sweet, sexy romance with a hint of intrigue you want Dirty Sexy Knitting this is the third book that concludes a really good trilogy everyone should own.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Cassandra Riley is turning 30 and wants to mark the occasion. She really wants to mark the occasion with her mom, sisters and shop (Malibu & Ewe the hottest yarn shop in Malibu) friends. But, it looks like yet another thing is not going her way. Juliet is on her honeymoon, Nikki is in the middle of wedding plans, her Mom is off on another adventure and Cassandra has decided that she is going to stop pursuing Gabe, sigh what is a girl to do. Well she will throw herself a big bash at the shop is what.

But, it looks like Mother Nature isn't even playing along as the night of the party there is a mudslide closing off her road.

Marlys is also back in Dirty Sexy Knitting and she might just finally have met her match in Dean.

The culmination to the adventures of the Malibu & Ewe sisters was an emotion filled suspenseful ride that I thoroughly enjoyed. Ms. Ridgeway brings the story of Cassandra to life and I was very glad to see her finally decide to let Gabe go, no matter how hard that would be. But, maybe absence will make the heart grow fonder? I do have to say that the title brought a few eyebrows up when I was reading it at the dentist office. If you want a great summer beach, or fall porch read, than you need to pick up Dirty Sexy Knitting. Or heck, pick up all three and enjoy the reading.

Note: While Dirty Sexy Knitting is part of a series it can be read as a standalone book, though it was more fun to read the entire series.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The conclusion to the trilogy (which I still think should be a quad), this book focuses on yarn shop owner Cassandra Riley, who is reaching a benchmark birthday (30!); her mom has other plans, her newfound sperm donor half-sisters are both off doing their own "things," more than focused on her.

This book left me emotionally divided. Ridgway is a an excellent writer, and the way she weaves all the different personalities and their stories into a book without losing focus on the lead heroine and hero is brilliant, IMO. She also writes seriously hot sex scenes.

But, I had problems because Gabe, the hero, is a drink-till-you-pass-out drunk. He has a plausible reason, and he is not an actual addicted-to-alcohol alcoholic. I could believe that Cassandra, who was a firstborn/only child until recently, was a super-responsible Rescuer type. I liked the book, I liked the romance, I liked the surprise twist re: Cassie's previous level of experience, still... I am concerned with The Message it sends, that a young woman can get involved with an alcoholic/addicted/super-damaged person, and Rescue him, and in the end, find a Happily Ever After. In real life, it almost never works out that way.

AND - I still liked Marlys, the spoiled/selfish Army brat, better than the other characters. I am also not sure about Ridgway's use of prologue/flashback to tell this story, finding it somewhat gimmicky, though I read the whole thing anyway.
