Travis Bennett is exactly the kind of guy Lauren Davis has been avoiding for the past nine years. Religiously. Stubbornly. Successfully. She knows too well how easy it is to let lust ruin perfectly laid plans. And a small town farmer with no ambitions beyond the borders of his own cornfield is not going to change her mind. She's got important stuff to do. Her company is literally working to stop world hunger. Her plans are much bigger than Sapphire Falls. No matter how hot those farmers might be.

The problem is--Lauren is falling in love. With Sapphire Falls. To kick her sudden desire to buy a welcome mat and start baking pies, she asks Travis to help her get over her crush. She wants him to show her what life in the small town is really like behind all the sweetness and sunshine and remind her that there's no place for French manicures and Gucci heels on the farm.

Travis has everything he wants or needs--a quiet, simple life in his hometown, a successful farm and his friends and family all around. A hoity-toity city chick who looks down on everything from the local coffee to his favorite music is the last girl he wants sticking around. So he agrees to her crazy plan. He can definitely show her the less-than-glitzy, rough-around-the-edges side of Sapphire Falls. In fact, things just might get downright dirty.

Small town fun..... Travis loves his life in Sapphire Falls…its a small town life and all that means..farming, getting dirty, swimming in the river, cold beer on a Friday night…etc. He has never ventured beyond Sapphire Falls and sees no reason to… until Lauren Davis comes into his life. Lauren appears to be his antithesis… a city girl who loves to shop, to eat at expensive restaurants, to travel and to experience life at its best. But deep down inside, she is a country girl who LOVES country boys! They are both passionate about their lives.. but with different focuses. Getting Dirty is their story… full of small town fun… a festival complete with a kissing booth, country boys and their pick-up trucks, nights under the stars, and plenty of country charm. Come and sit a spell and join the fun. You will be glad you came to visit.

Who knew Getting Dirty could be so much fun. I'm pretty sure I went to high school with Travis Bennett. He's a cocky farmboy with an ultra sweet side who's not looking to settle down. He's just looking for a good time. But there's something about Lauren Davis that gets to him (not that he's happy about that). Lauren has fallen in love with Sapphire Falls, a town not so far reserved from where she grew up. Only she doesn't want to love the town. She wants to stay enamored with her city life. She knows her weakness (aka farmboys and small towns, um but this is Travis were talking about. Who wouldn't fall for that guy?) She enlists Travis's help to show her the downside of Sapphire Falls. But darn if that old farmboy weakness doesn't just bite her in the butt.  The book for me captured that small town vibe. There's something about a guy who's content in his life but not afraid to leap from the box to show that special someone that he too can adapt. What better way to spend an evening than Getting Dirty?

Erin does it again!  Book Three of this series follows Lauren and Travis.  As with all of Erin's books, the characters are smart, sexy, sweet  and so fun!  Read the Sapphire Falls series, you won't be disappointed!!

Erin Nicholas does it again with a smokin hot book. The chemistry between Travis and Lauren is sizzling, but they fight it along the way. I love their bickering and squabbling, as it adds more to their already crazy relationship. Loved seeing their relationship grow from those of acquaintances to a lot more. And love Travis' s cocky country boy attitude :). Definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a fantastic steamy read

As posted on The Smutty Kitty reviewed by KittyKelly 5 out of 5 Licks You know that happy feeling you get when you finish a good book?  That is exactly how I feel every single time I finish an Erin Nicholas book.  That happy feeling is immediately followed by a very strong desire for more.  lol  There are plenty of other feels I get while reading Erin's books but the overwhelming feeling is sheer happiness.  Erin will rip my heart out and tear it to pieces only to wind up putting it back together again in the end.  I am always excited to read a new book from her because I have no doubts I will be sucked into an amazing story.  Getting Dirty is no different.  There were several moments when my husband gave me odd looks because I was laughing so hard while reading this book.  The lust between Travis and Lauren is through the roof.  No one could deny these two were going to burn up the sheets once they finally made it to a bed and they did in a big way!  I was thrilled to find out there are more planned for this series.  I can't wait to read more about Sapphire Falls!

I loved this book! That's really no surprise since I always love Erin Nicholas books, but there is a reason for that, she's good! In this third book of Erin's new Sapphire Falls series we are treated to the story of Travis and Lauren. Travis Bennett is always getting Lauren Davis dirty, in more ways than one. But Lauren soon discovers that maybe it's ok to not be quite so clean. She wants to hate life in the small town of Sapphire Falls but secretly she loves it. Lauren's enlists the help of hometown boy Travis to show her how awful and boring life in Sapphire Falls can be and make her want to get out of town, but her plan is destined for failure. The pair have off the charts chemistry and even Lauren, the unbelievably smart bisexual, can't deny sizzling hot chemistry. This is a great continuation of the Sapphire Falls series and I can't wait for more!

Erin Nicholas always produces must-read stories, and "Getting Dirty" is no different. "Getting Dirty" is the 3rd book in her Sapphire Falls series, and features Travis Bennett and Lauren Davis. Lauren Davis was first introduced to readers in the first book in the Sapphire Falls series "Getting Out of Hand," which features her business partner, Mason Riley, at Innovative Agricultural Solutions as the hero. Lauren intrigued me in "Getting Out of Hand," so I was excited to hear she was going to get her own story. Now that most of her friends and fellow co-workers at IAS have all moved to Sapphire Falls, Lauren is afraid to settle down and fall in love with the beloved town even more. She thinks of the perfect plan. Get Travis Bennett to make her fall out of love with Sapphire Falls. She wants to be turned off. Travis Bennett is a farmer, who never even thought of leaving Sapphire Falls. He loves his town that much. His family and friends are there. The ladies love him. All is right. But there's just something about Lauren that gets to him. He just can't picture Lauren getting down and dirty. She's too "city" for him, but he wants to break down her walls. So he agrees to help Lauren. He can show her the downside of living in a small town. The mud, the Duggs, helping in the birth of a newborn calf, etc. Honestly, this is one of the funniest books I've read that Erin has written. I laughed so hard to the point where I had tears in my eyes! How can turning each other off feel so good? Did Lauren and Travis honestly think that trying to turn each other off will work? It's like a plan just waiting to backfire! The way they try to turn each other off and the conversations they have when they try to do it, will have you dying with laughter! I love "Getting Dirty"! I love this series. Most importantly, I love the stories Erin Nicholas tells. She knows how to captivate a reader, and she never fails into leaving me wanting more. Definitely looking forward to her writing more stories for this series!

Once again Erin Nicholas brings us back to Sapphire Falls. The story of "city girl", Lauren and "country boy", Travis. Lauren so wanted to believe that she did not like small country towns but Travis was bound and determined to change her mind. Lauren's main objective was to hate Sapphire Falls. They soon found out they have "different focus but the same drive and same passion" I loved the flirty between these two, with laugh out moments. It was great to catch up on previous characters. This book is part of a series, can be read as a stand alone, but so much better to read in order.

Love this author! Love this series! Love the characters, and the fictional town of Sapphire Falls. This was one of those stories that grabbed me, and I couldn't put it down. It was funny, and smart like the other 2 books in this series. And I actually cried when a calf was born...ha! Very endearing turning point of the story. Of course it makes me love my own small town even more. I kept thinking, 'we have that same stuff here! How lucky are we?' It also makes me love my husbands pick-up truck more too:-) Not giving any spoilers, but Travis is sexy as hell, and Lauren's character grew on me big time in this book! I wanted an epilogue of them down the road with them and their kids,...and chickens!

The story of Sapphire Falls continues with Lauren and Travis. Lauren is a city woman with country roots who is fighting her attraction to Sapphire Falls and wants Travis to show her all the reasons she doesn't want to live there. Travis is a man born and raised in Sapphire Falls who loves everything about his home town. The only problem with her strategy is the mutual attraction between them. Follow their journey and fall in love with the characters, I did. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to the next chapter in Sapphire Falls. I highly recommend this series. You will fall in love with the town and the people who live there. Another great read by Erin Nicholas.

Good God! You're just not country if you can't admit your love for kettle corn, chickens and cupcakes! This book will leave you laughing out loud, hungry and looking up world events while sitting on a wrap around porch with your dog and some Booze. Erin knows how to write hometown! highly recommend. ¿

I have said it before and I'll say it again.... I want to move to Sapphire Falls! Erin Nicholas must have something in her water when she comes up with these amazing men of hers. Then again her women are something else as well. Travis is a good ole' country boy who loves his town and Lauren is really only in Sapphire Falls for her friend Mason and their business as she would rather be back in the concrete jungle of Chicago because of a soured past with country boys.  Their romance is blazing from the words Grape Slushie. What really makes me fall in love with Erin's books again and again is that these couples are so intense but at the same time you can see the real life romance, the softer moments in their stories as well. She captures true life from the down and dirty, to the fun and flirty and every second in-between.

I LOVE Travis, and surprisingly I really like Lauren too. I didn't think I would like Lauren from the other two books but she has proven herself in this book. Erin Nicholas did a wonderful job again. This book is wonderful and I recommend it to anyone who wants to lose themselves in a wonderful book.

Getting Dirty is the third in Erin Nicholas's fabulous Sapphire Falls series. Lauren Davis is SO not a country girl--she's been there, done that, got the T-shirt, thank you very much.  Her business partner and best friend Mason (his story is Getting Out of Hand, book one in Sapphire Falls) has fallen head over heels for this town and his beautiful bride, and because he now spends so much time in Sapphire Falls, Lauren ends up making frequent trips for business as well.  But live in a small town?  No way, no how!  While she's charmed by so many of Sapphire Falls's charms and its charming residents, she's bound and determined not to give it her heart. Travis Bennett is so much a country boy--he's a Sapphire Falls resident, born and bred, and he loves this town and its people.  He also finds tweaking Lauren's chain incredibly entertaining and since she thinks he's nothing but a hick, he's going to hick it up all the more around her. The thing is, neither Lauren nor Travis can deny that there's one powerful attraction they share.  Whether or not the city slicker and the country boy can find common ground of course remains to be seen ;) Ms. Nicholas outdoes herself yet again.  I laughed and laughed and felt my heart ache a little with how sweet and hilarious Travis and Lauren are. The bottom line?  Hope Sapphire Falls has room for one more resident, because I am SO there. Bring on the country boys--if they are anything like Travis, I'm ALL IN.  Can't wait to return to Sapphire Falls, Ms. Nicholas!!

Small Town Infatuation .......................................................................................................................................................................................... This series must be read in order. The first book is Getting Out of Hand: Sapphire Falls book one. The second book is Getting Worked Up: Sapphire Falls book two. This is the third book. Lauren feels that Sapphire Falls is a trap. She must not love the town. She left small towns behind in her rearview when she ran out of the small town she went to high school in and went straight on to Europe. She is a city girl! She enjoys sophistication and glamorous clothing! Travel and gourmet food! Not jeans and the same people and things to do day in and day out! Or at least that is what she tells herself to try and get over her escalating crush on Sapphire Falls... She definitely needs to stay far away from the good ole boy farmer Travis. Men like him are her kryptonite! Travis is content in his life. He has his farm and his family and his friends. The only thing missing is a good woman to settle down with. But no one had ever quite been the right fit. Travis loves working with IAS and their products and equipment and knows that Mason and his company have been a huge boon to his beloved town and all the family farms in it. Their techniques and government money not to mention awesome new crops are really making life better. It's just that Lauren with her haughty and condescending ways just rubs him the wrong way. He really wants to teach her a lesson she won't soon forget.. The only problem is his nearly overpowering attraction to her. This book had me laughing so loudly and often my sister kept asking me if I was feeling okay! It is fun and flirty and totally an engrossing read. I didn't understand how these two could possibly ever fit together but the way Nicholas has written it was breathtaking! I loved every minute of this book and cannot wait for the next one to come out! ***This series is suitable for adult readers

Ahhhh Travis! The sexy Farm Boy. Lauren's attraction to him and his to her is something neither of them want. Travis agrees to Lauren's plan to show her all of the reasons she would NOT want to move to Sapphire Falls and fall in love with a farm boy...any farm boy. In the process, she ends up falling more in love with the town and the farm boy but they both know it will never work. She is destined for more than small town life. She has a company to run now that Mason has married and moved to Sapphire Falls. The future of their company depends on her, right?  Erin Nicholas makes me fall more in love with the little town of Sapphire Falls with each story she tells. I want to move there! Small town life is such a breath of fresh air. Sexy farm boys, bonfires, friendships, family traditions, love, and sizzling sex in truck beds. I can't wait for my next adventure in Sapphire Falls, Nebraska, U.S.A. Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

I absolutely loved reading GETTING DIRTY, the 3rd book in Erin Nicholas's Sapphire Falls series which features Travis Bennett and Lauren Davis. As with the first two books in this series Erin had me smiling pretty much the entire time I was reading the story. There are so many laugh out loud moments from the witty banter and hilarious situations, and even just the attitude and lies both Travis and Lauren tell themselves as they fight the fact that they are falling head over heels in love with each other. All disguised in a little "frenemies" scenario Lauren cooks up to help her not only resist Travis but the town of Sapphire Falls itself. I've been curious about Miss Aloof Lauren's story since the beginning of this series. All we basically knew about her is that she is Mason's best friend, absolutely stunning, an incredibly smart and workaholic scientist, swings both ways sexually, has recently had a breakup because she has no time to give to a relationship, and continually frowns on the lifestyle in Sapphire Falls in comparison to life in a big city. Okay, maybe that is a lot, but we didn't know what made her tick or anything about her roots, so to speak. I for one have been dying to know who she was before she became Mason's best pal and partner and what she would be like if she relaxed and cut loose. In Getting Dirty there is a softer, more vulnerable side of Lauren, and she quickly became one of my favorite Sapphire Falls characters. Travis Bennett, is country boy, man candy personified. He is as happily entrenched in the way of life that is Sapphire Falls as a man can get. He is close to his family, proud of his roots, works hard to improve the town in general, an all-around great guy always willing to help and look out for his friends, with gorgeous looks and a rock hard body built from strenuous work instead of a gym like the men Lauren usually dates. He's attracted to Lauren, but hates her always turning up her nose at his town. He knows she trouble, that she is going to end up causing one of his friends, or worse one of his brothers, to fall in love with her only to leave them behind and break their heart. He thinks Lauren's scheme to ruin the sweetness of Sapphire Falls that draws her by forcing a hard look at what it would really be like to live there is ridiculous, but if it will get Lauren out of town and keep his bro's safe, he's willing to take one for the team. Besides, he's immune to her charms. He doesn't even really like her. At least that's what he keep telling himself. And her. I can't even verbalize how hot these two were together, or how funny it was that they worked so hard at denying they were perfect for each other rather than polar opposites, while not even trying to hide how badly they wanted each other sexually. Their intense attraction and the sexual tension it caused between them was alluded to in Getting Out of Hand and Getting Worked Up, but it explodes in Getting Dirty. And the ending, WOW! Sooooo romantic! Erin really has outdone herself with Travis and Lauren's love story. It's a mesmerizing story from start to finish. And of course, the whole gang is here to round out the story, cause a little aggravation for Travis and Lauren, and keep this reader in stitches. Also, we finally get to meet the elusive Ty Bennett. Now HE's the one I'm most curious about! *crossing my fingers there will be a fourth book* 5 stars ~Complimentary copy received in exchange for a honest review.

This fabulous contemporary romance and third in the Sapphire Falls series is the story of Lauren and Travis. Lauren reluctantly works in Sapphire Falls because her best friend Mason is based there now, preferring the big city over the small town atmosphere - or so she tries to convince herself, hiding her own country past in designer clothes and city attitude. Travis is everything she used to want in a man, but won't admit to any longer. When circumstances put them together, the attraction between them threatens to overwhelm all their good sense - can they both admit that a future together might be something worth having? I loved this story! Erin Nicholas has built a fabulous wonderful small town atmosphere in her depiction of the characters and setting of Sapphire Falls and with humour and fun situations she draws the reader into the warm and friendly place. Lauren is a high powered, attractive, dominant woman with a hidden soft side for all the things of her teenage life - country music, jeans, and handsome cowboys. Travis is an attractive (and don't he know it!), hard riding, confident man who sees Lauren as an uptight city woman who could be brought down a peg or two - right down to his level if he would have his way. Together the sparks fly between them, both sexually and professionally and the witty dialogue and humor in the situations they find themselves in will make the reader grin in delight. The love scenes between them are steamy and well written, with moments of tenderness in between the passion that scare both Lauren and Travis into realizing that a sexual relationship between them while fun and exciting, might lead into something more. The development of their romantic feelings for each other alongside the passion was delightful to read. Secondary characters are key to the story, adding fun and friends to the mix, with interesting and unique characters that make the reader want to live in a town such as this. Some of these characters already have stories of their own (definitely worth reading) or will have one in the future. Overall the story was a fast paced, romantic, funny and sexy read and I can't wait to see what's going to happen (or who's going to happen) in Sapphire Falls next! 5 fabulous stars!
