Alex Dawn is saying no to men. No to bad relationships, disappointments, and smooth-talkers. Focusing on her family and her job at Payton and Sons Automotive keeps her mind occupied and her heart content. She doesn’t really miss a man’s touch, until one night, a man shows up with the body of a god and a voice from her dirtiest dreams.L.M. Spencer is only in Tory, Maryland, to scope out the town as a possible site for one of his company’s hotels. The British businessman didn’t expect his car to break down or to find the hottest little American he’s ever seen holding a tire iron, piercing him with bright blue eyes.They agree to one hot nigh, one dirty deed to burn out the chemistry between them. But rom their first kiss, Alex can’t stop saying yes to this man. And when Spencer’s company threatens everything she cares about, they must make the choice to stand together or apart.
In the last year, I’ve read seven books by Megan Erickson and each one has been just as good as the last. Every time I see that she has a new book coming out, I become extremely excited and start counting down the days until I’ll have it in my hands. And it was no different with Dirty Deeds.
Alex has decided that she’s just going to stay away from men from now on. Other than the ones she works with, and who happen to be taken, Alex is happy live a life without men. Especially if it saves her from heartbreak and disappointment. She’s happy to just focus on her family. But when Spencer shows up at the garage where she works, Alex thinks that one night with him couldn’t possibly hurt anything. After one night, she’ll just go back to avoiding men. But one night with Spencer is not what Alex expected. After spending one night with her, Spencer can’t get Alex out of his mind. He should be looking forward to leaving the small town of Tory, Maryland to return to New York, but instead he can’t stop thinking about the hot mechanic. They can’t stay away from each other. But soon enough, the reason for Spencer’s stay in Tory might be what will tear them apart.
In the year and a half since Megan Erickson’s first book came out, she has quickly become one of my go-to authors when it comes to romance. To put it into perspective, I’ve read seven she’s written in the past year. SEVEN. And I never get tired of them. There’s just so much about her books that I love. And in the last little while I haven’t been able to get enough of her Mechanics of Love series. Every time I start reading one, I pretty much read it in one sitting. I get sucked into the story and don’t want to stop reading until I’m done. It was no different with Dirty Deeds. I loved this story. I fell in love with Alex and Spencer and I loved reading their story. The whole time I was reading I either had a goofy smile on my face or I was worrying about what parts of this story was going to do to my heart. But at the end of the day, this story made me really happy. But it was also a little bittersweet because I don’t want this series to end. I would be happy reading about the Payton and Sons family forever. Because I have a MAJOR soft spot for everyone in this series.
I loved Alex pretty much from the moment she first walked into Payton and Sons in the first book in the series. So I was excited about reading her story. Especially after everything I found out about her while reading Dirty Talk. There was just so much about Alex that I was curious about, and I wanted so much for her to get her own happy ending. Because she more than deserved it. And I’m happy that she got that happy ending with Spencer. Because Spencer was so not what he looked like. I mean, sure he was a successful businessman, but that’s not all he was. Once you scratched the surface a little, you realized that he had a whole lot more in common with Alex than I would have originally thought. So yeah, Alex and Spencer were a really good match and seeing them together totally put a big smile on my face. And as with any book in a series like this one, I loved being able to see all the characters I’ve loved in the other books make an appearance. Pretty much any time Violet made an appearance, my heart melted a little…especially if it involved her interacting with Brent. And even though Dirty Deeds is the last planned book int his series, I’m still holding out hope for more books, especially one that would be about about Delilah and Davis.
Needless to say that I absolutely loved Megan Erickson’s Dirty Deeds. I’ve loved the Mechanics of Love series and this book has only solidified my love. And I can’t help but hope that there will be more books in this series. Though if I’m being honest, I’ll read just about anything Megan Erickson writes.
