From the New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player, Book Two of the brand-new Wild Seasons series that started with Sweet Filthy Boy—a story of friends, love, and lust.

Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don’t even like each other...which would explain why their marriage lasted only twelve hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she’s too similar to the rugged fisherman—or just what he needs.

911, I’ve got a situation. You see, what had happened was I was reading Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren and my Kindle spontaneously combusted. Like, we’re talking flames shot out of that bad boy, and now my bedroom is covered in a thick cloud of smoke and my comforter is charred. In my defense, the book really should have come with some kind of warning about explosively erotic scenes so I would have had my fire extinguisher on hand. Just sayin’.

If you’ve read Sweet Filthy Boy you’ll remember Harlow—the fun-loving, sexually forward recent college grad—and Finn—the hot Canadian fisherman—as one of the couples who got married after a wild night in Las Vegas. The marriage was quickly annulled, but Harlow hasn’t quite gotten Finn out of her system.

In Dirty Rowdy Thing, Finn crosses the line from dirty into one filthy, filthy boy. In other words, he’s my kind of guy. If love making was a sport, he would be the reigning world champion, Olympic gold medalist, and Hall of Famer. In addition to knowing his way around the bedroom, he’s family-centered, honest, easy going, and monogamous. What’s not to love?

Honestly, despite their reunion being initially antagonistic, there really is very little drama between them. The plot mostly revolves around Finn’s failing family business and Harlow’s vulnerability. There are serious issues involving Harlow’s family, and I really wish the authors had made more of that story. It would have added a bit more meat to the plot. All the same, this is an enjoyable read and I’m looking forward to reading Lola and Oliver’s story in Dark Wild Night.

By the way, Christina Lauren. You owe me a new Kindle.

Thoughts on the Audiobook:
As far as the audio book is concerned, once again I’m seriously girl crushing on Shayna Thibodeaux’s narration. I’m probably one of the minority of listeners who isn’t a fan of Sebastian York, but I think he does a decent job in this case.

About Christina Lauren

Christina Lauren

Yes, there are two of us! Lauren (on the left) and Christina (on the right).

Christina Lauren is the combined pen name of long-time writing partners/besties/soulmates/brain-twins Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings. The coauthor duo writes both Young Adult and Adult Fiction, and together has produced fourteen New York Times bestselling novels. They are published in over 30 languages, have received multiple starred reviews from Kirkus and Library Journal, been selected as one of NPR’s Top 100 Swoon-Worthy Romances, and won both the Seal of Excellence award and Book of the Year from RT Magazine.

Lauren Billings (but everyone calls her Lo) has a Ph.D. in neuroscience and before she made writing her full-time job, would spend her days doing nerdy research-type things wearing a lab coat and goggles. She is silly Mommy to two littles, wife to one mountain biking homebrewing scientist, bestie to a shoe-stealer, and an unabashed lover of YA and romance.

Christina Hobbs (but you’ll always hear Lo call her PQ) used to spend her days in a junior high counseling office surrounded by teenagers. These days you’ll probably find her on tumblr. She is married and absolutely not old enough to be the mom of a 16 year old (right??), thinks she’s the luckiest person in the world to write books with her best friend, and is an unapologetic lover of boy bands and glitter. She also likes to steal Lo’s shoes.
