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?
While I didn’t love this one as much as the first book in this series, Down For the Count, Down and Dirty was still a pretty good read. I loved hearing Cat’s story and Shane was quite a hunk.
The moms in the book kind of cracked me up. They were so conniving. I also loved Courtney – she had such a brief role but I really liked her.
The plot was cute. The dynamics between Cat and Shane were pretty intense – I loved the sexual tension between the two.
This was another great read from Christine Bell – I have continued to love her books and already I am counting down for another.
