Bad boy drummer Aidan Burke of Dirty B takes center stage in New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart’s hotly anticipated follow-up to Dirty Past and Dirty Secret!
Aidan Burke is the perfect rebound guy for Jessie Law after she catches her asshole ex-boyfriend with his hands down some other girl’s pants. The world-famous drummer of Dirty B isn’t shy about his preference for no-strings-attached relationships, so when she meets him on a night out, she takes him up on his simple proposal: One night of fun. Hot sex. Zero expectations.
But Dirty B’s tour is over, and they’re back in South Carolina—which means running into Aidan more often than Jessie would like.
When Aidan saves Jessie from her ex-boyfriend by insisting the two are dating, the band’s manager convinces them to keep up the charade in the hopes of re-inventing Dirty B’s image as lovable bad boys, as opposed to d-bags. Now all Aidan and Jessie have to do is put on a very obvious, very public show to convince everyone their affection is real.
But pretending to be in a relationship is harder than it seems. Aidan’s hordes of jealous fans have no problem bombarding Jessie with threatening messages online—and worse. And things only get more complicated when Jessie realizes her feelings for Aidan may not be so fake after all. Can Jessie live with the risks? And is Aidan willing to let her?
Tate Burke? Who Tate Burke? Oh! I see, you talking about the eldest Burke brother. Well pfft, if you thought that Tate Burke was a hot piece of alpha male that would make you go weak in your knees then you haven't acquainted yourself with Aidan Burke.
Whoop whoop! Dirty B are back in Shelton Bay and Aidan Burke is about to wreck the best kind of havoc in Jessie Law's life. Now, Aidan and Jessie are not meeting each other for the first time. They've known each other since high school hating each other but now, years later they meet again and sparks fly! *cue Taylor Swift's track*
"Why, Aidan Burke, if I didn't know any better, I'd say you like me."
"Like you? Here's an idea, baby, shut your mouth for five minutes and let me just show you how much I like you."
Aidan isn't looking for happy-ever-afters and Jessie is on the hunt for a distraction after being cheated by her ex-boyfriend. These two meet in a club and then... BAM! Passion from the first look.
One chance encounter and eye contact, both have the single most amazing night and even more amazing sex of their life. But it was just one wild wild night before they realized that what they had was not a one night thing.
"A real gentleman would absolutely haul his woman off his shoulder –and he'd smack her ass for good measure too."
Well, whoever said that romance was lost? Jessie wasn't ready to 'spanked' of her feet. Nope. She was perfectly content with what was between Aidan and her.
And well then there is Aidan. Behind all that bad boy persona lies an extremely sweet and caring man. He even saves Jessie from her good-for-nothing ex boyfriend when he shows up at her work begging for a second chance.
And then comes the proposition and begins the whole charade of dating.
"...of all the lies I've told, you're my favorite one."
And why not? It is after all a win-win situation for both of them. Aidan gets the label and paparazzi off his back and Jessie gets rid of her ex.
But all lies have a way of coming back and biting you in the ass, right? But what happens when that bite turn out to be a major love bite that both of them weren't exactly expecting?
When a Burke falls in love he falls HARD. Aidan's fans, the Dirty B Divas, are not happy with the bad boy being taken. They love Aidan and they 'gun' for Jessie. Oh what? You thought it was rainbows and sunshine? Think more along the lines of hate messages, egged cars and death threats... Yup. That's what you get for loving a Burke.
Like any trademark Emma Hart heroine, Jessie is feisty, independent and strong and butts heads with Aidan and faces the backlash with poise. Until she couldn't?
"Open your eyes... Then you know what you look like when you belong to me."*swoon*
Will Aidan and Jessie's love be enough? Or will everything come crumbling down?
