After reading Sweet Filthy Boy, I’ve been dying to get to the next installment in this series. It didn’t let me down. This was just as good as the first for me, maybe even a little better! I loved Finn and Harlow!

After that one weekend in Vegas...Harlow and Finn were married for 12 hours. They have mutual friends, so they still see each other occasionally. And they have some crazy chemistry so when they see each other… well, one of two things is bound to happe

Overall, I enjoyed this addition to the Wild Seasons series. Dirty Rowdy had the same terrific banter that Christina Lauren bring to all of their books. And the steam....

Finn was a deliciously dirty boy!

All was well until about the 75% mark and the conflict hit.

"I am the biggest, most self-absorbed asshole of all time."

Yes Finn, I would have to agree...

I was disappointed in my dirty boy Finn!

Fun and sexy. I really enjoyed Harlow and Finn, their banter was fantastic and the sex was hot. An overall good, fast-paced, solid read.

I want to see him haul a big net onto the deck of his ship. God, he would make majestic fisherman porn.


“He’s built like a man who works with his hands, has a sense of humor drier than the Sahara, and the thing that gets him off more than anything in the world is giving you orgasms. What a nightmare.”

Dirty Rowdy Thing is the story of Harlow and Finn. Harlow is the daughter of Hollywood royalty and Finn is a Canadian fisherman. In the last book Harlow and Finn got married alongside Mia and Ansel in Vegas, but after a 12 hour sex romp they went ahead and got an annulment. There were no hard feelings between them, Harlow even visited Finn up in Canada for another sex trip. One which after they wer

*Fanning myself* The book lived up to its title ->DIRTY ROWDY THING. Finn had some mad skills with his mouth and Harlow was no shy thing when it came to cutting loose.

I didn’t read book one in this series but I will be now that I finished this one. Even though, I came into this book with no previous knowledge, I didn’t have any trouble catching on with what was happening and "had" happened in the first book. All that to say- even if you haven’t read book one you can start with this one.

In this second installment we have the story of Finn and Harlow. They also got married in Vegas but they annulled it in the morning after.
However, as a form of celebration, they spent a weekend in Vancouver having amazing sex, because that’s one aspect they are pretty great together.

Harlow. The most straightforward heroine ever. When she knows what she wants, she goes for it. No games. No pretense. No over-thinking. I loved that about her. She was such a real character. Sweet, caring, confident with plenty of feelings which she was not afraid to show to people.

Finn. Manly, sexy, loyal and proud but down to the earth man. Quiet outside, but w

The first book in this series is such a superior romance story, and this one in comparison is..... tragic. Whereas the first book had a cool setting, interesting/complex characers, and an intruiging plot, this book was plain average with characters and dialogue that's a cookie cutter of every other romance book out there.

So although there was nothing ~bad~ about this book, I just accumulated a list of things that aren't my personal preference in romance, such as:

I enjoyed this, but my heart belongs to Ansel:) If I got to choose, the sweet, filthy boy would be mine!!

Thanks to the ladies from the buddy read! It was a fun one:)

My thoughts before reading:),

So, Finn is rugged, dirty, rowdy, and likes to take charge? No wonder I'm so excited about this book release:)

This was so much fun to read! So much fun. So heartfelt and tender as well, which I wasn’t expecting. These characters and their lives felt real, the emotions came across really authentic and damn me, the whole story felt so alive.

911, I’ve got a situation. You see, what had happened was I was reading Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren and my Kindle spontaneously combusted. Like, we’re talking flames shot out of that bad boy, and now my bedroom is covered in a thick cloud of smoke and my comforter is charred. In my defense, the book really should have come with some kind of warning about explosively erotic scenes so I would have had my fire extinguisher on hand. Just sayin’.

I have come to the conclusion that I really don't like this series as much as the Bastard series and I am not sure if I will be continuing on with it. Harlow and Finn were married in Vegas, and other than spending a hot and sweaty weekend together after the annulment, they haven't seen each other for a while. When Finn comes to town for the opening of Oscar's comic shop, they are once again reunited. Although the sex scences were smoking hot, I didn't feel any emotional conn

Well, well, well…I thought I loved Ansel until I met Finn. It was tough to pick a favorite, but this Dirty boy had me at get the rope. LOL

Finn and Harlow are together again. Despite having been married, shared many earthshaking orgasms, these two know nothing about each other. Finn thinks Harlow is a rich princess who’s main focus is shopping and Harlow thinks Finn is a roughneck.

Book 2 in the Wild Seasons series, and another solid read for me.

This follows the relationship of Harlow and Finn. Unlike Mia and Ansel from book 1, the two did annul their marriage from that crazy night in Vegas. With Harlow in California, and Finn living in Canada, the odds of them seeing one another are slim. That is, until Finn comes to town for the opening of his friends comic store.

I absolutely love the stories Christina Lauren writes, the characters they imagine. And Dirty Rowdy Thing is probably my favorite book in their Wild Seasons series. There’s something about a man Christina Lauren creates that just makes you weak in the knees, and Finn Roberts was no exception. I was NOT, and I repeat was NOT, prepared for the words that came out of his mouth.

“You want me just a little rough?” he asks, hands shaking where he cups my face. “Or you want me fucking wild?”

Great fun, with lots of heart and a sexy, yet mostly functional love story, this book had me hooked from start to finish.

Book 2 in the Wild Seasons series, this book follows on from Sweet Filthy Boy, and brings us the story of Harlow and Finn - the daughter of two Hollywood celebrities, and a fisherman from the wilds of Canada.

For the most part, two essential subplots are somewhat disconnected from the characters.

Subplot 1: Harlow’s mom is diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer
Subplot 2: Finn’s family business is in dire shape.

With the subplots in the background, what are MCs doing??
Banging, roping, fishing, drinking, horny, drooling, banging more…

I find it hard to rationalize how well MCs could compartmentalize their emotions. A light fluffy storyline built on serious subplots is not well-executed, imo.

Dirty Rowdy Thing is the perfect title to this book! There are a lot of things that I loved about this book. I adore Harlow -she is funny, loyal, smart and sweet. I was so glad we got a little more Ansel and Mia in this book! The sex - WOW! HOT! There were quite a few steamy scenes in this book and I loved every single one.
