Sabrina had known Donovan for a long time and they had just recently become a committed couple. She was fully aware that he was a serious businessman whose mind was always on the next deal, but she did expect him to remember Valentine’s Day. Everyone at the office was going out to dinner or had received gifts. Sabrina didn’t have flowers on her desk and had no plans for the evening, so she decided to work late and call out for dinner. Maybe Donovan would surprise her next year on Valentine’s Day.
Filthy Valentine Fix:
Trish and Nate are neighbors with benefits, and spend every weekend at a private club, The Open Door. They enjoy the lifestyle which the club has to offer and it is an important part of their relationship. Lately, Trish had been worried about whether Nate liked her as much as she liked him, and she didn’t know how to approach him about it. There was a special Valentine’s event at the club and Trish wasn’t sure she wanted to go because she was afraid that Nate wasn’t interested in a serious relationship. Trish decided to go after all in hopes of finding out if their love was real.
Dirty Sweet Valentine:
Amelia had been in love with Harrington for what seemed like forever, even though she hadn’t seen him in fifteen years. She never put her life on hold for him and she enjoyed working for Dylan Locke at his advertising agency. She has had many lovers but her heart belonged to one person and that would never change. This Valentine’s Day Amelia was in for a big surprise that could change her life forever. What will happen when she hears a knock at her front door?
Chase met Kira one night at a busy and noisy bar and he never forgot her. She was beautiful, funny and she wanted him, so how could he say no? Their encounter was hot, steamy and over too quickly. He never asked for her number, and didn’t know her last name. How could he ever find her? Would he ever see her again? Will cupid surprise them with a Valentine’s Day they would never forget?
The twist here, the sweet naught kink that reeeeally tied me up in knots? Is how ROMANTIC the stories are. Even in the midst of the lewdest, jaw dropping moments, the sensual intimate side of these stories gnaw at you, keeping you swiping for more.
They are brief, but that's a tempting part of the pleasure. Every scene, every sentence, every move is a need, and pulses the stories forward. It’s so freaking romantic. Hands down, the ONLY Dirty Valentine you need. Read alone, or aloud, take notes, stage a demonstration. I am smiling, I loved these stories.
Donovan—that devil in a three piece suit, I was gobsmacked at his entrance, and he steals every last thing in Sabrina's tour de force erotic enticement of a valentine that pulses and grinds deep into the edges of the most taboo and forbidden fantasies. I craved every word, just like Sabrina. What a lucky wife.
The Ultimate Omega: Nate is possibly the most interesting and introspective of her dirty filthy men. He fascinates me and I always find myself on the 'verge of an urge' where he’s concerned. Trish got the best valentine ever and I squealed when I figured it out. Delighted and desperate. That's how I felt.
Bravo! This Dirty Filthy Valentine is a bright piece in an already shiny pinnacle of erotic romance.
Donovan and Sabrina! One of my fave couples and we get to see them again in a hot, kinky scene that still has me fanning myself!!
Trish and Nate, this is just what I needed from the two of them! A declaration done their way. I want more from this couple! We only ever have had novellas and we need a duet or a full book for them. I want to see where the journey takes them!
And......we get two new couples!
Amy, who we met in Dirty Sweet, works at Reach in London. Harrington, the one that left with her heart is back, but just for a night. This is a hot, but heartbreaking story and I absolutely need more now. My heart exploded reading this!! They need their happy ending stat!!
Kira and Chase, I just love this story! It wasn't drawn out and there weren't a ton of other characters to keep straight, but rather just a great connection between the two of them!!
It is always a Nice Surprise to hear from old friends. I must bring out the story from Sabrina and Donovan because that is Some of the hottest short story ever. There story have always been hot. But this. Wow this was hot. It made me want to do a reread of them because I miss how good they are together and what an idiot he sometimes it.
But that is not all this book has to bring. We get to spend some time in the open door with Trish and Nate. They still have this diferent open relationship. That to alot of people wouldent work. But for them, it does. Always so refreshing to see what they are up to.
Amy and Harrington were new to me. But i really hope that someday they will have more of a story then this short snippet because they need it. There is so much more to this story then just this. But maybe
The last story in this book is a Laurelin McGee story. A fine short sweet college romance about first time and first real love. About abstinence from sex and giving in to your needs. about being strong and brave enough to tell how you feel and taking a chance on love.

And given that the majority of the stories involved in this collection are ones that're set in the Dirty Universe, it's a guarantee that these stories aren't going to be all hearts and flowers, with cheesy grand gestures that'll leave you swooning. I mean, there'll be grand gestures all right, but in the dirty, kinky, filthy sense - ones that'll leave you breathless more than anything else.
It's everything you'd come to expect from Laurelin Paige, and I honestly just could not get enough of it. Each story is different in their own way; unique and unforgettable and just downright sexy, and I need to warn you now that this is going to be a looooong review, as below, I'll be rating each story separately and giving my own brief thoughts on how I liked each story, and all that it delivered.
So, let's begin shall we?
Dirty Filthy Valentine: Five Stars
Sabrina and Donovan
I absolutely adored this short story, and it is hands down my favourite story of this collection. Dirty Filthy Valentine is everything that is Donovan and Sabrina - it's unexpected, it's sexy, it's dirty and filthy, and it involves them acting out one hell of a roleplay that left me with a racing heart and breathless. Donovan's the hero who forgets Valentine's Day, expect he doesn't necessarily forget it - he just doesn't give it a second though as he isn't the kind of person to follow this social tradition, nor partake in it. But what he comes up with as a last minute gift for Sabrina?
Oh my Holy Lord I could not read this short story fast enough!
It was everything I hoped it'd be and so much more; Dirty Filthy Valentine left me wanting to put this collection down just so I could reread the Dirty Filthy Duet all over again; and I honestly feel like if you love Donovan and Sabrina and you want more of them in any way you can get, then you will not be disappointed with this short story.
Filthy Valentine Fix: Five Stars
Trish and Nate
Sexy. Seductive. Surprising. Filthy Valentine Fix fit Trish and Nate to a (Mistress) T.
Laurelin could not have written this short story for them any better than she has. I'll admit that I was a little hesitant to read this story at first, because whilst I am now more open-minded about the Open Door - which plays a huge part in this short story - and all that goes on there, Trish and Nate's kinks do still push me out of my comfort zone a little, and considering we don't get a lot of them, I haven't had the time to embrace it more. But that's also what made me push through my hesitations to dive right on in to this story - that we don't get enough of Trish and Nate, and I do want more of them because I do love them as a couple. So I started reading Filthy Valentine Fix...
And I absolutely loved it.
Trish doesn't want Nate to make a big deal about Valentine's Day, nor does she want him to make any declarations that could ruin what it is they have together. But Nate has a gift for Trish that he knows she'll love, and by the end of the night, it just may be Trish who makes a bigger declaration on this Valentine's night than Nate does. I feel like if you love these characters and have been craving to have more of them, then you will not be disappointed with this short story. I enjoyed it overall, and I so hope they get another story like this one in the future.
Dirty Sweet Valentine: Five Stars
Amelia and Harrington
Now, Amelia and Harrington's story isn't actually a new read for me. If you don't know, Dirty Sweet Valentine was actually available in an anthology Laurelin participated in in 2019 called Be Mine. It was a limited release of Valentine stories with five other bestselling authors, and it was hands down one of my top favourite reads of 2019. I absolutely loved reading this short story then, and I love it still; it's a story that revolves around Amelia who we met in Sweet Fate, and all we really knew about her was that she works with Dylan Locke, and occasionally used to sleep with him.
In this short story though, we learn a bit more about her. More so, about the love that got away, yet comes back for this one Valentine's night.
I definitely want to see more of Amelia and Harrington, as Harrington isn't your typical Laurelin Paige hero. He's much more different to her business CEO characters that it's not even funny, yet him being so different to them is what has me craving for more from him, and more of a story for him and Amelia. They deserve more, and I so hope that this isn't the last we see of him - them - and that Laurelin gives them a story (that isn't short) of their own.
Cherry Popper: Four Stars
Chase and Kira
Like with Dirty Sweet Valentine, Cherry Popper isn't a new read for me. This is actually the third time I've read this novelette - first time I read it was when it was included in the Unwrapped anthology that was released back in 2013, and the second time was when Laurelin made it available on Radish. Since then though, this story has been re-edited so it's now told in first-person perspective rather than third, and with a new ending to make this story fit with this collections' Valentine's theme.
Besides those changes, it's still the fun and adorable romance that's steamy, more young NA than anything else, and has a bit of drama to it given that Chase is shocked to discover that Kira is Princess Cherry Saver, and is a part of a sorority that've made a vow to save their virginity. He's not shocked about her saving her virginity, but more so about the fact that he had a one-night stand with her months prior. The drama comes in though, when Chase considers exposing Kira on her deception - of saving her virginity when she doesn't even have it - to get a place on the college newspaper.
The Valentine's aspect mainly comes towards the end of this novelette, but it is overall a very enjoyable story, and is very different to the three short stories involved in this collection considering it's told entirely in Chase's POV, but more so (and as I've said), because it's more of a young NA than anything else. And that is why I'm rating this novelette four stars. Honestly, Cherry Popper just didn't feel like it belonged in this collection. I love that it was included, don't get me wrong about that, but it's so out of place next to the three previous short stories that're included in this collection, ones that're steamy and sexy and very, very kinky, that it's not even funny.
"Are you here for good?" It's the most important question, and somehow my mouth forms the words perfectly, shaping them into respectable dialogue.
His answer comes just as steady. "I'm here for tonight." - Dirty Sweet Valentine
Overall though, I really enjoyed this collection as a whole. I shaved off the .5 Star from my final rating because of my four star rating for Cherry Popper, but otherwise this entire collection was absolutely flawless. It's quick to read, and I devoured the whole thing in just a few short hours, and all in all, Dirty Sweet Valentine: And Other Filthy Tales of Love is an addictive, alluring, and sexy collection that you won't want to miss.
Oh how i loved catching up with their SEXY valentine shenanigan’s.
Donovan was his brusque sexy self, not a man for romance but holy hotness. His valentine surprise for Sabrina had me combusting and wanting more !!!Definitely my favourite couple.
