Dirty Money by Jessica Clare(Review Post)

Published January 17, 2017 by bookbesties


Southern Texas heats up when four roughneck billionaires set their sights on love in the new series from New York Times bestselling author Jessica Clare.

Boone Price and his brothers know oil; at least, the dirty, backbreaking side of working an oil rig. But when their scrubby, worthless hunting land turns out to be sitting on top of one of the biggest oil wells in North America, they go from the rig to the boardroom and end up billionaires practically overnight.

Now with enough money to do whatever he wants, Boone is developing a taste for fine things. And the finest thing he’s ever seen is Ivy Smithfield, local realtor. Boone’s determined to win her affection and show the world that he’s more than just a dirty fool with a bit of money. Ivy’s classy and beautiful – she’ll make the perfect trophy wife. The fact that she’s sexy and funny is just a bonus.

There’s one tiny problem – Ivy’s as dirt poor as Boone was. Her carefully crafted veneer of luxury? All an act to promote her business. What’s Boone going to do when he finds out the woman he’s falling for is, well, in his league?

The idea of this book was right up my alley, I mean, who doesn’t love a dirty talker amiright? I loved Boone at first, he was unapologetic and brash and knew how to use dirty words to his advantage. He was a roughneck through and through and just because he happened to have money, and I mean M O N E Y, didn’t mean he was changing for anyone. You can take the roughneck off of the rig…..Ivy is the total opposite of Boone, classy and groomed and rich…..or so she leads everyone to believe, including Boone, who only wanted her because he thought she was classy when he saw her(on a flier, none the less). But then, Boone started getting dumb. Like money is the answer to everything dumb.

“Come away with me.”-Him

“No, I can’t I have clients.”-Her

“I’ll buy them a car if they reschedule.”-Him


I’m paraphrasing like crazy here, but you get the idea.

I didn’t really connect with Ivy like I thought I would. She went back and forth to staying professional and getting involved with him, who according to him, he was going to marry. But one thing, ONE thing happened and she was lost.

With all of that being said I really did enjoy the story line and writing style. The chemistry with the two were palpable on the page and the tension of what will happen when he finds out is what really saved this read for me.

I will keep my eyes peeled for the other brothers stories, because there are a few that seem waaaay more than meets the eye there.
