Former Ranger turned cop, Ben Archer, is practically shut down by the grief he's experienced. When one look at Tanner Jones, revenge-for-hire's newest operative, starts to bring him back to life, he's reluctant, confused and angry. Sparks fly -- and not only the good kind. These two about wore me out emotionally with their battles -- but it was totally worth it as they finally saw their way clear to reach for their HEA.
Down & Dirty is the mother lode of hot, sexy suspense. There aren't enough stars here to do the review process justice.
Tanner Jones is training to become a member of the Dirty Deeds team. Broody and overbearing Detective Ben Archer seems to block her at every turn, so she accepts the offer of help from “Addy”. Ben has rules against becoming involved with those younger than him, working with him, and everything else that describes Tanner. But as he is so directly told:
“Any man here can see Tanner’s a complete knock-out. Even me, Ben. She’s smart, driven,
trust worthy. Anyone who’s ever met her can tell she’s got a good heart.” He shrugged. “I guess
the only question left is who gets to be the lucky guy.
Intricate, dangerous, thrilling and impactful story of struggle and love. A remarkable read. I can’t wait for more!!
*** I am voluntarily leaving my honest review of this book ***
I was thoroughly swept away in this final book in AJ Nuest's phenomenal series. Tanner and Ben's story totally wrapped me up, blew me apart and put me back together. Their attraction and tension was completely off the charts. The circumstances that made them the people they became shredded my heart. That they were able to finally open up and understand who they each were was hands down, fist pumping, jumping up and down epic. The suspense kept me glued to each page. I adored reading this series but Tanner and Ben are my overall favorites and totally stole my heart. I would highly recommend not only this book but the complete series. If you like stories with action and twists you don't see coming, hot hot hot alpha males and the strong women who show them what love is all about, AJ Nuest delivers on all counts!
Just for the record: Ben Archer is mine.
This man is perfectly wounded. I bawled my face off before Ben’s story was even introduced! AJ Nuest sets the tension early—I knew the heartbreak was coming—and even though she gave me a million reasons to turn away, I couldn’t. I wanted to swan dive into that pool of hurt. And when NDP wants something, she gets it.
I latched on to Ben like a greedy parasite. I sank into his story until my eardrums popped from his hydrostatic pressure.
I. LOVED. EVERY. SECOND.
Down and Dirty is the third standalone novel in the A Like Story Series, and I have to say…it’s my favorite. I didn’t think anyone could compare to Detective Riordan from Dirty Deeds (A Likely Story, 1) but err meer guurd AJ knows how to sculpt an impeccable romance.
"…the second she’d read the heartache in his eyes, she’d known the repeated loss of those he’d loved had turned him into the distant, irritable man he’d become."
Oh right!! The plot!
Tanner is a BALLER. All of AJ Nuest’s heroines are strong-willed, know what they want and work hard to get it. I became Tanner. I walked in her footsteps as she tried to prove her worth in the world of revenge.
Ben Ben the dreamy steamboat is eventually compelled to ride all over our ambitious Tanner, but he’s not the only man in the mix…
"Jealous? A sputter left his lips. Hardly. He couldn’t be jealous of something he’d decided a long time ago he’d be better off without, and he wasn’t about to sit here at zero dark thirty and lay out the reasons why in a bunch of stupid texts."
Tanner seems to be cozying up to this “other man,” but she has to make a choice—she doesn’t know it at the time—and both of these men have serious risks. I say she should just choose the other guy so I can keep Ben to myself. In a world of revenge, you never know when a girl might lose her head…
I’ll keep my fingers crossed. 😉
But then Ben gets kidnapped and Tanner freaking has to save him!
AJ Nuest, only you can make role reversal so spicy. The rake in distress. I loved that Ben was kidnapped! Heck, I should have thought of it myself! Not only is Tanner conflicted by her emotions, but a duty. Tanner absolutely mixes business with pleasure and it not only puts her heart at risk but Ben’s…and I don’t want Ben to suffer any more than he already has!
Tanner and Ben begin their journey with hate. They can’t even speak to each other, let alone work together. But they slowly begin to understand one another.
"For the first time since the day they’d met, they were actually communicating without being stuck in the midst of an all-out war. No, not face-to-face, but at least they were having a conversation."
What’s the nerdy detective equivalent to sexting? Radio-ing? #Naughty
Ok…this particular scene is nothing like that (LOLZ), but I totally envisioned this while reading! There was one plot in front of me, and then a separate one projected on my mind—two different movie reels playing simultaneously, inevitably merging together at the end.
Again. Only AJ Nuest.
This is a game of reverse baseball: three strikes, you’re IN. Down and Dirty (A Likely Story, 3) is addictive and downright phenomenal.
