Dirty Girls on Top by Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez

The Dirty Girls are back, saucier and sexier than ever….but would it be wrong to ask them to be a little smarter, too?? Especially when it comes to men. And sex.

Lauren Fernandez is at the top of her game as the cleverest columnist the Boston Gazette has on board—but she can't quite figure out how to pick a guy or how to eat (and not drink) like a healthy person. Usnavys is still sashaying all over town, 260 pounds of her dolled up in designer duds and ready for action—from anyone except her husband Juan, that is. He's become just a bit boring staying home scrubbing the tub and cooking up chicken fingers for pre-schooler Carolina while somebody else brings home the bacon.

Maybe the other Dirty Girls could help Lauren and ‘navy out, but they've got their own messes to deal with: Rebecca Baca hasn't gained a pound since college (well, who would, if they had an ounce of self-control?) but suspects her picture-perfect marriage may not yield the baby she longs for; Sara may be the star of her own decorating show on cable television, but her dangerous pull toward her ex-husband Roberto isn't so pretty; Amber keeps renaming herself and doesn't want to hear that her soulfulness and reinvention aren't enough to make fans actually buy her music; and Elizabeth is discovering that a relationship with another woman takes more than bravery and a nesting instinct.

Dirty Girls on Top is about trying to figure it all out without quite as much time left as there was five years ago. And it's about sex and love—getting it, not getting it, yearning for it, having it with the wrong person, fighting it from the right person, trying it a new way, giving up on it. And, in the end, if your fingers are crossed and the planets are in alignment, having it come out just the way it should.

I have always enjoyed Alisa Valdes Rodriguez's prior audiobooks, I favor Make Him Look Good and Playing with Boys. For the most part, I also enjoyed Dirty Girls on Top, especially Usnavys character. What I completely disliked with the horrible latin accent provided by the narrator. It was only acceptable for the character of Lauren, since she is not suppose to be fluent in Spanish. It was very annoying to hear typical words supposedly pronounced by Latinas sound so unLatina! Amber's character was probably the worse. It made it difficult at times to continue listening. My advise to the author, if you write a book about Latin characters, have someone who not only speaks Spanish, but also has a Latin accent. It makes the characters so much more credible.

Dirty Girls On Top is a fantastic follow up to The Dirty Girls Social Club. I recommend reading Social Club first and then getting right into On Top. Dirty Girls on Top leaves you wanting more and it is hard to put down. I love the way the author stylizes each character. It makes you feel like you are watching a movie! I got a little frustrated when I didn't understand some of the slang that is often used, but it makes me want to learn more. Enjoy this on the beach, on a plane, in bed or while eating a meal.

Full of drama, fun and funky spunk, easy read and ironically true to life. I do know these women, they live inside of and around all of us.

This was an OK sequel. I read it because I was curious how things would end up for the sucias, but I probably won't read anything else by this author. Her use of Spanglish was annoying. 357 pgs.
