Started the series with Dirty Rich One Night Stand (LOVED) than Dirty Rich Cinderella Story (GREAT) now I'm reading Dirty Rich Obsession. I love them all so far and cant wait for the rest, especially looking forward to Ashley's story! This book was great! All books are a bit on the long side but they keep you entertained. The right bit of steamy romance that i look for and great story development. I loved Cole and Lori's story and I cant wait for their 2nd book. Lori would sometime frustrate me with her push and pull mentality because of her past but Cole so made up for it, for me, with his never give up attitude and alpha male dominance.

Dirty Rich Cinderella Story was an earthshaking balance of suspense, intrigue, holy hotness and those mind-blowing connections. Hitting every high note and every lyrical word I require in a fabulous read to send my mind soaring and my heart on a collision course of awesomeness. Lisa Renee Jones just captured my heart again! It was a rather easy feat on her behalf since I have been an insatiable fun for quite some time now. I always go in her books not knowing what to except and with a hit of excitement. Just like waiting for a gift on Xmas morning Well, Dirty Rich Cinderella Story didn't disappoint at all! It cemented my need for Lisa's writing. Sealing my fate that I will forever be a die-hard fan!

What can I say about this one that would get you to get to your nearest e-tailer or retailer. This was hot sexy and Cinderellaist. Lori was not looking for a prince, a hook-up, or anything of that nature. She was on the other hand a smart, sexy, young woman and it had been too long. She endured much. She stopped her life to care for a loved one. Why couldn't she have just a bit of delight for herself. Cole was a man of men. He was one that knew what he wanted and he was determined to get it, but he was not the roll over you type to get what he wanted. He could see Lori for herself. I was taken with Cole and Lori. I loved seeing some of the other characters of Jones' that I have seen in the past. I was nice getting a peek in their lives and seeing secondary characters that may lead to more. I found this one was not so much a mystery/suspense type read. There was more of Cole and Lori and them working together both professional and not. Lori finds herself being her own worse enemy. Regardless of that being said, I found me another good read from Lisa Renee Jones.

3.5/5 We were introduced to Lori in Dirty Rich One Night Stand as Cat's assistant and I was delighted to see her get her own story. There was a depth to Lori that was barely tapped in Dirty Rich One Night Stand. The past year hasn't been easy for Lori, first losing her father and uncovering and subsequent medical bills adding to the debt. a mountain of debt, followed by her mother also suffering a major health crisis. Lori doesn't shirk her responsibilities and selflessly puts the needs of her family before her own. Giving up her place at Stanford in order to bring in necessary financial aid and having to move herself and her mother into a tiny apartment in a less than affluent part of town, fuels Lori's desire for independent success. Lori's work ethic is something to be in awe of, despite working three very different jobs, Lori doesn't complain and holds tight to the dreams of her future when she has fought her way through the mounting debt.  I loved seeing the continuing story of Reese and Cat through Dirty Rich Cinderella Story, they are a wonderful couple and sincere, genuine friends. In this instance, they are the fairy godmothers to Lori's Cinderella!!! Recognizing Lori's talent as a lawyer, Cat and Reese enter Lori for a paid internship from a very prestigious conglomerate of which Reese's firm is a member. With Lori's impressive credentials the board is thrilled to be able to offer Lori this opportunity. The only snafu in the fairytale is Lori's new boss, Cole, who also happens to be Lori's hot one night stand!!! A random encounter between Lori and Cole lead to one very amorous evening together. One neither has been able to forget and move on from. the animal attraction between them was instantaneous and hasn't dampened in the time they have been apart. The chemistry between them is palpable and noticeable to those close to them, especially Cat and Reese, which could be a problem with the new work dynamic. Although passion the likes of such between Lori and Cole cannot be denied and their reunion inevitable.  Dirty Rich Cinderella Story has very little in the way of angst apart from the obvious off-limits situation Lori and Cole find themselves in. Lori and Cole fit together beautifully, they are both intelligent, sharp-witted and creative in their thinking; perfectly matched in and out of the bedroom. Clearly, they both have some minor issues dealing with their relationship and their work/life balance but these are minor concerns and nothing that isn't easily rectified with open communication between the pair.  Fast paced with equal parts heat and sweet, Dirty Rich Cinderella Story is most definitely an adult fairytale ♥

Lori was so close to achieving her dream of finishing law school however the unexpected death of her father as well as her mother having a stroke required that she withdraw so that she could help financially. She is now working three jobs trying to pay the medical bills when she bumps into Cole, a sexy stranger. The chemistry between them is off the charts so Lori decides to let herself have one night with this man as a break from the stress of her life but she leaves in the morning before they can talk. Cole knew from the moment that he met Lori that she was different from any other woman he met. His attempts to track her down are unsuccessful or at least they were until she showed up in his office as part of the scholarship program and was now his employee. He wants to continue their relationship, but she doesn’t want the reputation of sleeping with the boss but working together is a temptation neither of them can deny. Lori is determined to remain independent while Cole just wants to make her life easier which makes for some heated exchanges both in and outside of the bedroom.

A sexy standalone... Seduced for a night. Taken forever. With only nine months left at Stanford, and despite being top of her law school class, Lori Havens takes leave to care for her sick mother. That means she juggles three jobs, the best of which is researcher for novelist, and syndicated columnist of "Cat Does Crime," Cat Summer. One evening after finishing up her work at Cat's apartment building, Lori has an encounter with a sexy stranger, and does something out of character. She goes home with him. The night is perfect, he's perfect, wealthy, powerful and from out of town. Morning comes, and despite their connection, Lori leaves before he finds out she's far from the equal he believes her to be. She's not a charity case and she's not after his money. She will make her own. In other words, she leaves before her prince charming finds out she's no princess. Flash forward a few months, Lori’s mother is healing, and Cat's husband, Reese, has merged his firm with another and Lori lands an internship there, with school credit and scholarship money.. Everything is falling into place. That is until fate reveals a wicked twist of events and Lori walks into a conference room to find her new boss, Cole Brooks, one of the partners, is her one-night prince charming. One sizzling shared look across a boardroom, and it’s clear: this man is not done with her. It’s not long before Lori is informed that she’ll be working high profile cases with her one night prince charming which will require long nights and travel, starting immediately. Review: A super hot and sexy set in the world of law. This is the second book in this series and if you read the first book you will recognize the characters in that book as the friends of the couple in this book. Lori and Cole literally run into each and the chemistry is instant, but Lori is too afraid to go out with him. Fate throws them together again and this time Lori gives in, as long as it is a one and done affair. No matter what Lori wants or thinks she wants Fate has other plans. What starts out as attraction quickly evolves into a deep and lasting love. I love that these two are equals, both are wicked smart and sharks as lawyers. I loved how the story was woven around these two and how their occupations worked to help bring them together. Another thing I really liked was the banter between Lori and Cole, they were so fun to read. The only thing that bothered me about the book was Lori, I really wanted to smack some sense into her once and awhile throughout the book. The story did have a lot of emotional moments woven in as these two came to be together. I think they Author gave a well-rounded, entertaining and sexy romance. And I still think Reese and Cat’s siblings should get a story. 4Stars *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book provided by the Author.*

Lisa Renee Jones has a that special "it" factor when it comes to writing stories that has me turning the pages as quickly as humanly possible because I can't get enough, to craving the next book immediately after I've finished. Her writing style, in my opinion, is brilliant & highly addictive, so she's on of my top go to authors on my addiction list, which means this story was another masterpiece in my eyes. See, Lori was less than a year out from finishing law school at Stanford, she had to drop out to take care of her mother, and their bills. So she's been working one full time job, & 3 part time jobs to take care of them, refusing to take hand outs. After one night with her favorite job, with her new friend, Cat, she takes one night for herself, and goes home with a stranger to spend the hottest night of her life, but when morning comes, she runs out before he can get her full name & digits. Fast forward some months, Cat's husband has merged with another firm which landed Lori an internship & scholarship to finish those last months of law school, and she's faced with that man as her new mentor/boss, Cole. So the fun begins, as neither has gotten the other out of their heads, and with Cole's in it to win attitude, and Lori's stubbornness, the battle lines have been drawn. Yeah, the sparks are flying, since the chemistry is intense, they can't stop it from igniting into sexy times that light the sheets on fire. And the cast of secondaries helped add to the story in great ways, like adding more depth, and even humor to the mix. The push & pull was frustrating which added a bit of emotional angst to the mix, which had me muttering colorful metaphors throughout because of my girl's stubbornness, so there were times that I wanted to shake some sense into her. All in all this story ticked all my boxes, so I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ALL!

DIRTY RICH CINDERELLA STORY is the second instalment in Lisa Renee Jones’ contemporary, adult DIRTY RICH romance series. This is law student Lori Havens, and attorney Cole Brooks’ story line. DIRTY RICH CINDERELLA STORY can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary. Told from dual first person perspectives (Lori and Cole) DIRTY RICH CINDERELLA STORY follows the building relationship and forbidden romance between law student Lori Havens, and power attorney Cole Brooks. Lori Havens is struggling but looks can be deceiving. The recent death of her father, and her mother’s recovery from a stroke, our heroine, a former Stanford law student, is desperate for some me-time which includes a one-night stand with a stranger. Fast forward to present day wherein Lori Havens will come face to face with her future, and her past-Cole Brooks-her one night stand –and the man who has been tasked with mentoring our heroine as she returns to the study of law. What ensues is the forbidden romance between our leading couple, as they struggle to keep secret their growing attraction for one another, as Cole continues to mentor the woman with whom he is falling in love. DIRTY RICH CINDERELLA STORY is a slow building story line where Cinderella meets her Prince Charming, a prince who continues to look for the woman that stole his heart. There are some issues between the couple including misunderstanding and jealousy when met with the possibility of previous love interests, as well as our heroine’s difficult acceptance of financial help, and the obvious wealth of the man that she loves. The premise is engaging as our couple navigate the push and pull of a forbidden relationship but the majority of the story line conflict is the perceived reaction of others, and our heroine’s blind spot as it pertains to her need to remain at home. The conflict resolution is quick and easy without too much effort. Lisa Renee Jones pulls the reader into a fairy tale of the have and have-nots; an opposites attract story with a provocative hero, and stubborn heroine who struggles in the face of determined independence, shame and embarrassment for something that was, and is, out of her control.

When a one night stands changes your life forever. Sex, Passion, and Forbidden Love. Lori Heavens is a law intern with great potential and a lots of baggage. Cole Brooks is your tall, dark, sexy successful lawyer. He wants to take care of Lori but Lori has a very strong personality. She doesn’t want to need him but she already does. Will that be a problem in their relationship? Will they be able to stay together and have their happily ever after? You would have to read the story. Lisa Renee Jones is one of my favorite authors. All her books are very well written. Each one of the characters has a life of their own. I cant help falling in love with her stories. You laugh, you cry, you hurt and then you heal. Her stories leave you wanting more and more. Worth every penny in my pocket and every minute of my day.

I love LRJ books. She writes intricate plots, complex characters, steamy scenes and books with depth. For me this book just didn't hit a full five-stars, BUT that doesn't mean it wasn't excellent! (Because it was) Lori is smart, independent, stubborn and a woman who is capable of taking care of herself. She's working multiple jobs to make ends meet in order to take care of her family. One day she meets Cole. He's everything she isn't in her mind. He's powerful, sexy, wealthy and after two chance encounters and a one-night stand, she can't let go even though she wants to. This is a hot, emotional read that I would definitely recommend.

Oh that rush I can't stop after reading The Controversial Princess. Princess Adeline had me laughing and rooting her on with her own antics. Yes she is a Royal, but after she is done with her duties, she transforms into the real woman hiding behind the crown. When she meets our Hollywood Hottie, Josh, I could have sworn I was going to hate the arrogant ....well you get the picture. He was cocky and so self assured. Then he will wear you down and get beneath your skin. The fairy tale romance... ha ha who am I kidding, there is nothing fairy tale about these two. It is hot and steamy! It will make you get flustered and have your toes curling. Once you think that you have their story figured out, you get thrown into some surprises. The ending had me anticipating that maybe Josh and Adeline can live free. When the unexpected happens you are left with a huge cliff hanger and your jaw dropped to the floor. So many secrets!!! I can not wait until the next book and find out the conclusion of this duet!

I have become a fan of Ms. Jones characters of all types, Cole and Lori are no exception! They have a one-night stand and then are left to wondering from there. The romance is spicy, sexy, full of suspense, and mind-blowing. I love the way Ms. Jones spins her stories and characters in a way that keeps you captivated until the end. ***I received this as an ARC and I am voluntarily leaving a review of my opinion.***

Cole and Lori are great! Lori is truly “Miss Independence”. She will do it in her own time and on her own. Relying on someone other than herself is a good trait but there’s more to it than that. Hers is based on the lack of trust. She WILL finish her law degree and take care of her mom and all of the debt from her father and it’s her job to do it. Cole is honest and hard working and he fights for what he believes in. And when he meets, or rather, runs into, Lori on the street, he finds himself thinking of her. A lot. And when fate brings them together again (and it is Fate!), he begins to change. He wants her more. He thinks of her all the time. He needs her. He sees more for them than today. He keeps pushing because he’s head over heels. But for every step forward he takes, she’s taking two backwards. He’s going to mess it up. But she may have already done that. Trust and acceptance. And love. I loved Cole and Lori’s story. I loved the cases they worked on and Cat’s book and the ever-true support of Reese and Cat. Lori’s biggest mistake was in thinking of herself as Cinderella instead of the strong, fierce and resilient woman she really is.

Oh my goodness! This was so good! Lori is literally working herself to death trying to pay off debts so she can get her mother out of the dump they have ended up living in after her father's death and her mother's resultant stroke when between jobs she runs into the one man she cannot ignore...her destiny. Cole Brooks is one hot man but more than that, he is a hot, honest, and driven attorney and after colliding with Lori on the sidewalk and the chance meeting and sparks he is hooked. Later when another chance meeting after Cat runs out on Lori when they were to have drinks and dinner turns into a one-night stand. One hot and memorable night turns into obsession for Cole and haunting for Lori and several weeks later kismet when Lori wins the scholarship which will allow her to finish her Law degree while working for Reese's firm and, surprise, she ends up the intern for his new partner, Cole. Okay, I have told you too much already but it is enough to whet your appetite and you have to read this book and read it now. You don't have to read Cat and Reese's story to understand this one as this is a standalone but the first one is just as good so don't miss that one either. Definitely a don't miss and one of the best so far this year! **Received this ARC for review**

This love story is a stand-alone book. This is a must read story about Cole and Lori. I love how this story has engulfed me in it. Lori is just trying to get her life back after her mom was sick. Cole is a lawyer, that is not really looking for anything. But when Lori runs in to him, they both think one night is all they will need. But then life throws them back together.

5 SEXY STARS!! As always this author delivers a phenomenal story with all the sexiness, suspense and fantastic characters. Lori and Cole's story will keep you turning pages and never wanting it to end. This is book 2 in the Dirty Rich series and they are both worth a 1-Click.

Cole can be MY Prince Charming too. Dirty Rich Cinderella Story is the second book in the ‘Dirty Rich’ series by Lisa Renee Jones. It’s a standalone but Cat and Reese from Dirty Rich One Night Stand feature in it quite a bit. It’s not necessary to have read their book first, but for some extra insight and just plain good old-fashioned reading you should. Book two is Lori and Cole’s story. We heard about both Cole and Lori in the first book, so it was interesting to seeing them come to life. Lori has had a hard few months. Her father died, leaving her and her mother with a huge debt to pay off. As if that weren’t hard enough, Lori’s mom, Evelyn, then became ill too. Lori is struggling to make ends meet, working several jobs, one of which is for Cat, when she meets Cole. They bump into one another when Lori is rushing from Cat’s apartment and sparks immediately fly. Cole offers to take Lori for a coffee but she refuses, knowing this man is too much for her. She fobs him off and leaves, regretting her decision the very next second. Later that night they met again and this time, Cole isn’t taking no for an answer and they have one hot as hell night together. But, it can only be that. One night. Lori isn’t what Cole thinks she is, or she isn’t… yet! Leaving without an explanation, Lori tells herself it for the best, and keeps telling herself that. She just can’t get Cole out of her head, try as she might. He dominates her every thought, just like he dominated her that night. But, weeks later she fears she might need him after all, and has know idea how to go about finding him. A few months later after Lori has recovered from that worry, fate plays a hand and brings them back together. Thanks to Cat, and her husband Reese, Lori has been awarded a full scholarship and the chance to return to her studies. With that, and a new job interning solely for Reese’s law firm, Lori feels like she can finally breathe. She has the ability to get her and her mom out of the dreary apartment they live in and to start afresh. Happy and feeling carefree, she begins her new job only to find out that Cole is her boss. What will she do? What can she do? Will Cole even remember her? Cole does more than remember, he’s been searching for his elusive one night stand for months. Lori left a lasting impression on him and he didn’t want to let her go. Now that she’s back in his grasp, she’s not getting away without a fight. Lori has a lot of trust issues, with men and how they perceive her, thanks to her father’s reckless lifestyle and the debts he left behind. She is wildly attracted to Cole, not just his looks, but his mind too. They both ‘get’ each other and this coupled with their undeniable and unflagging sexual chemistry makes the story pass in a blur. There’s a lot of push and pull between these two, some miscommunication and Lori pushes Cole away, a lot. She’s a strong woman, with a fiercely independent nature and doesn’t want to rely on any man. Cole, is brooding, sexy and possessive. His dominant nature and desire to protect what’s his make him a little overbearing at times, but GOD, he was still hot as Hades in and out of the bedroom. I loved every minute of this book, the story is fast-paced and will leave you breathless on more than one occasion. I whole-heartily recommend this book to new readers as well as old. A fantastic addition to the Dirty Rich series and well worth a read.

I absolutely loved this second book in the Dirty Rich series. Lori and Cole are a great match. Neither realizes it at the time. A chance encounter has them meeting when Lori is rushing to get to work after leaving her friend and boss Cat's house. She literately runs into Cole who is on his way to a meeting. He asks for her name and number and Lori refuses. Both think of the other throughout the day and run into each other later that same day. They share a passionate night and Lori leaves the next morning . Cole is mad at himself for not getting Lori's last name or number. He returns home wondering if he will ever see her again. Some time passes and the two eventually meet again not knowing that they have mutual friends in common. From there the sparks fly. Lori has her doubts about Cole at times and Cole is guarded at times. These two have so much chemistry together that even their friends can see the connection they have to one another. I loved the way Ms Jones has characters from her other books make appearance. Such as the Walker Security employees. This is a very well written book which has you wondering at times whether Lori and Cole will be able prove that their clients are innocent and whether the two of them can get past the obstacles that seem to get in their way of having an HEA. All Lori wants to do is prove her worth and that she can make it on her own. All Cole wants to do is support and protect Lori. They are better together than apart. The just need the chance to figure it out. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

It is always a pleasure to read one of Lisa’s romances, as we always have a strong women with integrity and who like to kick ass when warranted. This one has Lori, just nine months before finishing her law degree, her father died leaving her mother with his gambling debts. Then her mother has a stroke with the stress. So Lori finds herself responsible for everything. The only thing she can do is leave college and work three jobs. So while this has happened her mother’s out of hospital and things start to look up. When she meets Cat (Dirty Rich one night Stand) in a bar to catch up, as she helps Cat as her assistant . They have become good friends, but on this occasion Cat receives a call and has to leave. Suddenly the hot man she had bumped into earlier sees her, and for one night she wants forget everything and escape. Cole can’t believe his luck. Let just say they go to his hotel, under the conditions Lori sets no last names and just for tonight. Well we all knows what happens, and it was HOT, in the morning Lori runs. Cole and Lori can’t stop thinking about each other. Both not realising they had mutual friends (Reese and Cat) That’s it I hope I’ve wetted your appetite for more, this is completely standalone and a full length story. As always a really perfect story, and I  was  totally enthralled.  By the way Cole is really delicious and I want him

Dirty Rich Cinderella Story by Lisa Renee Jones this is book Two in the Dirty Rich series. This is the story of Cole Brooks and Lori Havens. I have read the previous book (and loved it) but feel this can be a standalone book. Lori father died, her mother had a stroke so she had to drop out of Law School to help with her mother and find jobs that helps pay the bills for them. Lori happens to meet Cole who have a instant attraction to and they act on it but Lori ups an leaves the next morning knowing that he is out of her money status. But when later when things are going better with her mother's health she takes a intern job that leads her right to Cole again. Really enjoyed their story...a hard book to put down for sure!
