WHY I READ IT
I previously read and reviewed Dirty Billionaire and was given an advanced reader’s copy
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
I did it. I married a billionaire.
My reasons are my own, but the last thing I expected was to feel owned.
I may have taken vows, but I’m still determined to be me.
Now his rules are taking over my world, but I’m not the kind of girl to just obey.
There’s only one problem: I might actually be falling for him…
I have no idea how this marriage is going to go, but holding onto a piece of myself while succumbing to his dirty pleasures is shaping up to be the ride of a lifetime.
Dirty Pleasures is the second book in Meghan March’s new Dirty Billionaire trilogy and things definitely take an emotional turn. At the end of Dirty Billionaire, Holly Wix makes a bold decision – choosing her career over her husband. Let me just say, this is one of the many reasons why I love Holly Wix as a leading lady because even though she has a hotter-than-hell husband who’s a billionaire and has found some creative uses for whiskey, she puts herself first. You go girl!
Dirty Pleasures picks right up, with Holly choosing her dreams over her husband. When Creighton Karas shows up, ready to fight for Holly, Holly makes it clear her career comes first. The fact that Holly forces Creighton to join her on tour is awesome. What is even more awesome is the fact that Creighton willingly does it. He has an empire to run, but he puts it on hold to support Holly. There is an amazing scene early on when Creighton is in the audience, watching Holly perform and I know that’s the moment it all changes for him. That’s the moment he sees her for who she truly is and knows she’s worth the fight. As a reader, it’s so refreshing to read a male character who is willing to take a backseat for the sake of the female. Many alpha’s have a “ME ME ME” mentality and while Creighton does have an ego, he knows his place is next to Holly, not in front of her.
I’m still holding onto that fifth star because I know the third installment will absolutely the best. At the end of Dirty Pleasures, Holly drove me absolutely insane because while I admire her tenacity to fight for her career, I want her to fight for Creighton too. He’s shown his commitment to Holly and it’s time for Holly to reciprocate. That’s why Dirty Together will be a five-star read (I’m predicting it now!) because I know that Holly will realize she has to fight for Creighton. And there’s also a secret waiting to be revealed that will surely cause some fireworks to explode.
If you haven’t read Dirty Billionaire yet, you need to – like yesterday. Don’t wait for them to come out all at once!!
