Book review: Down and Dirty (Dare Me #2) by Christine Bell
He was a dare she’d never been able to resist…
Cat Thomas has never been the kind of girl to stick. A self-professed infatuation junky, she latches on the newest, hottest guy on the block, then finds a reason—real or imagined—to dump him. When she accepts a dare to rekindle her high school flame and jump in bed with her brother’s best friend, Shane Decker, she knows she’s in trouble. She can’t resist the man, even after all these years apart, and that just won’t do.
Shane has come back to town for a couple reasons. The biggest one? He’s tired of living away from those he loves, including Cat. But now she’s spooked and will do anything to drive a wedge between them, including trying to fix him up with other women through an online dating service.
What does he have to do to make her see that settling down doesn’t mean settling, and he’s ready to spend a lifetime proving it?
This is book 2 in the Bare me Series. I red book one and loved it. Book 2 is about Cat Thomas. Galen's sister from book one. We got a pretty good introduction to her in book one. Shane is Galen's best friend and has the hots for Cat for a really long time but he was sworn to watch out for her in her teen years when her brother and his best friend left for college. She couldn't get away with anything with him on the job. Problem was he wanted to be doing some bad stuff with her but felt he couldn't because she was his best friends sister and he swore to watch out for her not corrupt her. Cat liked him too and put the moves on him but he rejected her because of his promise to Galen but she doesn't know that. Now ten years later and he's tired and wants to come home and be around his friends and finally claim Cat if she'll let him in. I really enjoyed the story and loved Shane. I think Cat was a bit over the top but i guess when i can see when you get something set in your head and you heart has been hurt it can really hard to get past it. Sometimes it just takes a whole lot of time and persistence and Shane certainly had that. This is a fun fast read. The kind of book you know your going to enjoy from the first chapter. 4 out of 5 stars for Down and Dirty by Christine Bell.
