eARC Book review: Dirty Deeds (Dirty #1) by HelenKay Dimon
eARC Provided by the publisher through Netgalley
No dirty deed goes unnoticed in a seductive game of cat and mouse. But for Alec and Gaige, the wrong move could get them killed.
Alec Drummond didn’t make his billions by playing nice—or by playing much at all. When it comes to pleasure, Alec only has time for whatever’s quick and easy, which is exactly what he gets from his company’s hot new computer genius. But Gaige Owens isn’t some pushover. He pushes back, and it’s giving Alec a rush. The question is, could Gaige be the one who’s leaking trade secrets? Just to be safe, Alec keeps him close at hand . . . night and day.
Gaige never thought he’d roll over for a man like Alec again, but who could resist sex this mind-blowing? Then there’s the draw of Alec’s mysterious side: his cutthroat ambition, his covert CIA connections, and the murder in his past. For Gaige, a deeper look proves an irresistible temptation. But when Gaige and Alec are stripped of their defenses by an unseen danger, everything they don’t know could bring them closer together—or tear them apart. Only one thing is certain: Before it’s all over, someone’s going down.
First in a new series by Helenkay Dimon, Dirty Deeds is the first book. Alec Drummond is the oldest of three brothers and the head of his families company. A company with extremely tight security. The best, until Gaige Owens breaks in. Forced to work for together for Seth, a CIA agent, they slowly but steadily form a bond. Someone it seems is trying to kill Alec or Gaige or maybe both, while they try to find out if someone has tampered with the Global Seed Vault. From what i understand this series is a spin off from another series. I have not read that series so I'm not sure if that was a hindrance to reading this book or not. I loved the plot and most of the characters. Gaige and Alec were awesome together. Somehow with everything i did like I had a hard time getting through the book. It took way longer than it should to read. I honestly can't nail down why i had so much trouble. The relationship between the characters worked for me but the techy stuff i guess fell flat. It was like OK OK now get back to the good stuff. In the end overall i felt indifferent about the book. I could take it or leave it. Leaves me wondering if i want to continue reading this series or not.
