Overview

For almost a year, Heaven pleaded with her best friend, Tanya Reed, to visit her and her husband, Hamid, in Pakistan. Not even the arrival of the couple's new baby could force Tanya to prepare for the journey halfway across the globe. When Heaven mentions Hamid's available rich brothers, the idea of hooking up with a man and money prompts Tanya to get her butt in gear. Of course, there's a hitch that develops after Tanya arrives: none of Hamid's brothers can stand the loudmouthed, gold-digging party girl. And if truth be told, Tanya shares the same sentiment of the brothers. They might be rich and handsome, but she doesn't want them. Not any of them—especially not Imran Ahmad. In Dirty Little Secrets by J. M. Jeffries, Elle Walker is a desperate woman—desperate enough to hire herself a rent-a-stud. Forced to go home to Florida for her parent's recommitment ceremony, she knows they will try to find her a respectable young Republican man that is tailor-made to fit into her parent's conservative world. So she turns the table on them by bringing Merrick Lee, a bearded, grease-under-his-fingernails mechanic. Merrick Lee has returned home after four years in Iraq. He is a man of hidden talents. Ivy Leaguer, ex-Delta Force Commando, he's just passing time until he returns to veterinarian school when he meets the fascinating, frustrating, sexy Elle Walker, and she makes him an offer he can't refuse. He'll be her pretend boy toy for the next two weeks, but only on his terms. And his terms include wooing and bedding Ms. Elle Walker.

    Nice to find a new author...

    I found this book by accident when shopping in my local B&N store. I mainly bought the book for the sequel story by Dyanne Davis. This was my first time reading J.M. Jeffries.

    I have to say I enjoyed the story (Dirty Little Secrets) by J.M. Jeffries more. The characters were funny and I really liked them together. The male lead totally won me over. I really did not know what to expect but wanted more when it was over.

    The next story (Continental Divide) by Dyanne Davis was a bit of a let down for me. I so LOVED the title characters from the other book (Let's Get it On). I was hoping to fall in love with this couple's story but it never did click for me. The story actually had me feeling that the couple was missing a true connection. When I finished the book I went back to re-read (Let's Get it On). I suggest getting the 1st book and reading it first to understand the magic of Heaven and Hamid.

    OK

    Dirty Little Secrets (J.M. Jefferies)- I tried very hard to like this story but it just didn't do it for me. There was no romance and whole premise of this story was stupid... I have read several romance novels and this is by far the worst.


    Continental Divide (Dyanne Davis) - Now this is a LOVE story. This is my first time reading one of Dyanne Davis novels and she did a FANTASTIC job. I must say you will enjoy this story from beginning to end. This is the first book that had me in tears. If Dirty Little Secrets wasn't so bad I would have given it 5 stars.
