A war veteran turned hired assassin, Derek Conway is a man with nothing to lose. After serving in Afghanistan and then seeing his wife gunned down in front of him, he’s disillusioned with the world and emotionally distant from others, and for the past few years, has assassinated blindly based on whoever pays the highest price. But he’s about to meet his match…because his next assignment is to take out Alana Bernal, the sister of Mexico’s most notorious drug lord.
For a relative of a drug lord, Alana has kept her identity under wraps and lived her life as a normal citizen. Despite her family background and upbringing, she’s pretty naïve and too trusting of others, and when she survives a seemingly random hit-and-run, she puts her faith in Derek to keep her safe while they go on a wild country run to evade her attackers.
While I did enjoy the suspenseful plot from the middle of the book and onwards, I could barely get into the first part of the book. For starters, I didn’t understand how Derek could go from emotionless killer to protective hero in the first 6% of the book I read.Read more ›
Alana lives a fairly normal life considering she's the sister of a powerful drug cartel leader, The King of Mexico himself, Javier. You remember him from The Artist Trilogy, yes? Alana has escaped the attentions of rival cartels until now. And now that the guns are trained on her, trusting in anyone is difficult, even the man saving her life. The man she's falling in love with.
Derek is militant and cold, for good reason. Seeing the only person you love gunned down just feet from you will do that to a person. He sees a second chance in Alana, a chance at redemption. The chance to save someone...finally. As long as lies don't get in the way, but in this life, they always do.
Here is what surprised me most about Dirty Deeds. My complete change in feelings about these characters. While you can absolutely read Dirty Deeds as a stand alone, I promise you really can, the characters have all popped up in other books. So I went in with predetermined feelings on them.
For instance, I loved Javier. Even when he was completely evil. He disappointed me in DD though, maybe the first time he's ever done that. Derek was someone I was fairly indifferent about before, but I ADORE him now. There was another really large shift too but in the effort of keeping this non-spoilery, I will seal my lips on that.
I did not, however, have a formed opinion on Alana before reading DD. Gotta say, I kinda dug her. She has spunk, she's brave but not completely stupid about it. She's in an impossible situation but seems eager to just try to live some life...Read more ›
Karina Halle's suspenseful romance, Dirty Deeds, follows sicario, Derek Conway, and Alana Bernal, the sister of cartel king Javier Bernal, as they evade death on the dangerous streets of Mexico. While both characters have small presences in both The Artist's Trilogy and Dirty Angels, Dirty Deeds can be read as a standalone. Halle provides enough information to the reader that anyone who hasn't read previous books is never lost on the details, but those details never feel redundant to those who are well versed in this series and these characters. Dirty Deeds is a fast-paced thrill ride of danger and sex. There's something so spicy and hot about Karina Halle's crime-ridden escapades on the Mexican streets. Her stories surrounding drug cartels, guns and death feel dangerous, frightening and filthy, yet still hold such an intense sex appeal and an alluring quality. It's impossible not to step into this world of drugs, money and greed and not feel immediately consumed.
Karina Halle captures the ambiguity of her Dirty leading men in such a paradoxical way that you're not exactly sure whether you're falling in love with a bad guy with a good heart, or a good guy that's drifted over to the dark side. Or maybe he's both. Maybe he once was a truly decent human being before life dirtied him up and made him the truly bad guy he is. Make no bones about it, the men in this series don't even blink before pulling the trigger. They act. They kill. Forget about a skewed moral compass, their's doesn't even exist. Which is why Derek Conway is such an anomaly. Known mostly as The American, he's a hired hit man. In Dirty Deeds, he's hired to take out Alana Bernal, but something tells him this is a situation he wants no part of.Read more ›
