Blog Tour & Giveaway: Clare James's "Dirty Little Lies".

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Blog Tour and Giveaway for Clare James's "Dirty Little Lies".


Twenty-nine-year-old Stevie Sinclair has just lost everything: her boyfriend, her apartment, even her ugly bird named Free. (Yeah, she knows it’s stupid name, so don’t start.) But most importantly, Stevie’s lost herself. 

As she shuffles through her days in worn-out Hello Kitty PJs—eating ice cream, sipping wine, and contemplating her next move—a magazine article catches her attention. Blaring black letters read: "How to Get Your Sexy Back in Six Easy Steps."

Stevie studies the article in the trashy magazine like the good student she is and immediately knows what she has to do. With the magazine article in hand, and a bottle of red in her bag, Stevie embarks on a journey to reclaim her life and win back her ex. 

Until she meets Gabe Shannon. Gorgeous, single, and on a quest of his own, Gabe introduces Stevie to a lifestyle that is sure to help get her sexy back and then some. If she doesn’t chicken out … (Oh, you know where this is going.)

What follows is a story of self-discovery, romantic gestures, erotic encounters, and following one's heart--even if it leads in unexpected directions.

Portions originally published online as The Club e-series, Dirty Little Lies now has 70% more content, chapters from Gabe's point of view, and a sizzling conclusion to this steamy tale.

My Review: Jo Rushton: 

Wow, this book was a total surprise, I really wasn't expecting it to be so hot. "Dirty Little Lies" was a a smoulderingly sexy read and I bloody loved it. Not only was it full of yummy sexiness but there was a great story to go with it too.... RESULT!!!

"Dirty Little Lies" began with Stevie Sinclair, a woman who was left completely heart broken by her separation from her boyfriend. With insecurities setting in, what Stevie needed was some sound advice on how to get her mojo back. And what better way to get that advice than from a magazine article.. right??? Intent on not wallowing in self pity, she set out on a mission to get her sexy back. 

This is when the "Gorgeous Gabe" decided to walk into her life. With an instant connection, Stevie decided to confide in Gabe and told him about her plans and Gabe... well how could he resist helping her on her all important quest!!! 

"Mmm. Stevie Sinclair. Yes I think I will help you with your list, Ms Sinclair. 
In fact, I don't think there's anything I'd enjoy more."

What followed was Stevie's journey in discovering a whole new sexy life!!

I loved Stevie, she was sweet and funny and when Gabe came along, she really shone. He bought out a brave, curious and very sexy side that Stevie she never knew existed and she truly flourished with Gabe not only by her side but also in her bed!!!  

"We're starting our sexual adventure,"
"With what?"
"With words, Stevie. I'm going to show you how 
I can make a woman come without even touching her."

And Gabe ... this man was not only gorgeous but kind, caring, confident, domineering and OMG he was so hot. I loved how he helped Stevie truly find herself.. he truly bought out the best in her and she was lucky to have him in her life. 

"You're so sweet, I could stay here all day. Your pussy makes me so hard, Stevie. 
I don't want to stop."

Stevie and Gabe together were electric. They were on fire, making me blush with all of their steamy adventures. Stevie was one hell of a lucky girl! 

"Gabe is like an addiction; this amazing creature. How have I lived so long without this?" 

This story had me hooked, resulting in me devouring it in one night. I found it was a refreshing change not to have the usual will they, won't they saga that is so very common in a lot of books at the moment. I loved that Stevie and Gabe didn't hold back with their feelings for each other. And just when I became comfortable, certain that I knew what was on the cards for Stevie and Gabe, along came a twist that I didn't expect. What would happen now between Stevie and Gabe? Stevie was left with a dilemma of epic proportions. 

"Dirty Little Lies" is brilliantly written, has fabulous characters and contains lots of smoking hot scenes. I did not want this book to end and I definitely was not ready to say goodbye to the "Gorgeous Gabe".

This is the first book I have read by Clare James but it will not be my last. Dirty Little Lies gets a gorgeous 5 hearts from me!
