Every time I pick up a book written by Meghan March I know, I am in for a funny, hot and sexy read and ‘Real Dirty’ delivered just that. This is the first book in her new and exciting Real Dirty series.
Boone Thrasher, the star of this series is a hot and successful country music star. I first met him in the Real Duet series. At the end of that series, Boone is waiting for his girlfriend, Amber, as he plans to surprise her with a marriage proposal. Unfortunately, she never showed leaving readers wondering what happened. The answer to this question came to light in this instalment. The reason behind her non-appearance sent Boone into a tailspin, which had him going on a drinking binge.
Ripley Fischer is a bartender at the Fish Bowl. She poured her and soul in its operation in spite of the financial struggles she faced. She refuses to walk away as the bar is the only connection she has to her mother. Due to her dedication to the bar, she has no time for relationships especially one involving a celebrity. She has an unwritten rule for dating celebrities. A rule which she implemented because of a tragedy that struck her family several years ago. They are off-limits, however, that rule was put to the test when Boone Thrasher entered her bar.
The attraction was clear from the moment they laid eyes on each other. However, Boone was busy drowning his sorrows and Ripley wanted nothing to do with him. Their interaction from the outset was fun and witty. Ripley is a woman who gives as good as she gets. She is not one to back down from a challenge. I admired her loyalty and determination. Although I did not like was how she was quick to judge him due to his celebrity status, I understood why she felt that way. However, as she spent more time with him she came to realise how wrong she was in her thinking.
Ripley’s life has never been easy, but since meeting Boone they have escalated. His plans for her bar to earn extra revenue backfired, as a result, he felt compelled to rescue her. Ripley was not eager to accept his help, but what she did not count on was his determination to do the right thing by her. I enjoyed their interaction which was fun, sexy and entertaining.
The supporting cast added their own share of entertainment to the story. There were some likeable ones and some not so much. My favourite was a parrot named Esteban who is a fixture at the Fish Bowl. Each time he speaks I could not help but laugh.
If you have read any of Meghan’s books, then you will be aware that her sex scenes are hot and they leave nothing to the imagination. One thing I can say though is that they are always tastefully written, and this book was no different. It was a funny, entertaining, sexy, and explosive story, which I had a hard time putting down. It was so good that I finished it in one sitting.
I should warn you though, the ending is a huge cliffhanger. I am usually not a fan of this type of ending, but Meghan March is the author so how could I resist. I was aware that there would be a cliffhanger, but what I never saw coming was the explosive ending. Now I am on pins and needles waiting for the conclusion of the series. Thankfully, I will not have a long wait.
This is a great start to the series and I am eager to know what next is storefor Boone and Ripley.
In Nashville, country stars are a dime a dozen.
I swore I’d never get caught up with one, but Boone Thrasher made a liar out of me.
I said I’d never put my heart on the line, but he didn’t ask before he stole it.
Now we’re facing my worst fears, and we’ll see if this country boy is tough enough to see it through.
Girls like me don’t get happily ever afters… but maybe he’ll prove that wrong too.

So the series follows the same couple and each ends with cliffies? I am not usually a fan of those, but this does sound good. Maybe when the series is complete..lol
