★ DIRTY BAD SECRETS ★
EDITOR: JOHN HUDSPITH - EDITING SERVICES
COVER DESIGN: ROMANTIC BOOK AFFAIRS
He doesn’t want me here, doesn’t want to know me, doesn’t want to even hear my name.
But I’m back on his doorstep, in his office, in his life… with a suitcase full of dirty bad secrets.
Faye Devere is out to claim her old life back. Three years in Italy have come at a heavy price, and she’s running back to the only anchor she has left: her fifty-fifty share of Club Explicit, and the man she left to pick up her pieces.
But Andy Morgan’s long over it. Long over her.
Club Explicit is his baby now. His club, his rules, his way.
Andy’s not a man who shares easily. And certainly not with the woman who upped and left without so much as a goodbye.
When your battlefield is London’s horniest playground, and sex is the sole weapon left in your arsenal, it’s only a matter of time before the fight gets dirty… and the secrets get dirty bad.

In this book we meet Andy Morgan the owner of Club Explicit, and his fiery business partner an co-owner Faye Devere. Faye has been gone for 3 years and shows up wanting her half of the club back. There's some major fireworks and chemistry between the two as they work out their differences and try to find some solid ground in their fight for power and dominance.
I have read every book in this series an I couldn't wait to start this one. Honestly this one just didn't do it for me. I heard this was the dirtiest one yet, and yes don't get me wrong it is dirty but was lacking the sizzle for me. I hated Faye from the start and just couldn't connect with her character. Andy I enjoyed but felt there wasn't enough background about him, like he just existed with no idea of how he became. I just feel like there was more I needed from both characters.
The sex is hot, the writing as always excellent but I didn't come out of this one reeling for more from the couple like I had all the previous books. I felt nothing really happened until I was half way through for me. It definitely picked up as secrets were revealed and what secrets they were! All in all I give this book 4stars, a disappointing start but I was glad I stuck with it to the end!
I have read all of Jade West's Dirty Bad series and it is hard to write this review. I've loved them all however with this one I just didn't connect or feel it. The writing was done well. I just couldn't connect with Faye. I don't like her at all. She is whinny and she is just too much drama for me. I really didn't think her secret was that big of a deal. There were certain circumstances that pertained to her secret. I didn't feel the connection between her and Andy until the very end.
Andy I liked but feel I really didn't get a good insight of him. I felt his secret was lacking was not really even a secret. I would of liked more about his life or even about him. The struggles he went through without Faye. Glad to get to see Masque in this book. He is a favorite as well as Savage. I found myself getting bored in the book and I guess I expected more. After reading all the reviews about how great and dirty this is I was kind of disappointed. Topaz is a character I enjoyed and I liked her interaction in the book. I felt the connection between her and Faye was genuine.
All in all it was a pleasant read and it was dirty in the sense of degrading, humiliating sexual acts. There is more things deep about Faye in this book that I felt while reading this in the Mental aspect. The things that happened while she was away for 3 years did things on a mental level and changed her. The constant fighting for dominance. At times the fight was getting to be to much. I give this a 4 star rating
