Ahhh so Stevie and Gabe have been together for a while and the insecurities have set in. Both are thinking the same thing, neither are saying it, and both are going along with an idea that they think the other will want yet neither of them actually do! Confused?? Nah it's actually very straightforward when you're reading the book lol.

This was a pretty short book but it still oozed sexiness and hotness. It had it's comedic moments. Their new pet kind of replaces Freebird and I hope for their sake

I was so excited when I got a chance to read Dirty Little Tricks early. I’ve loved Stevie and Gabe since I first met them in Dirty Little Lies, I so was happy their story was continuing.

Dirty Little Tricks picks up with Stevie and Gabe more settled in their relationship. Both have been extremely busy with work that they haven’t had much time for each other. Stevie decides it's time to spice up their love life and in normal Stevie fashion things don’t work out exactly like she plans, which causes

I absolutely loved the first book in the series, giving it five hearts. Stevie and Gabe's journey was one that I thoroughly enjoyed, so when I saw that they were getting another book, I was eager to see what would happen next for this hot couple.

In "Dirty Little Tricks," Stevie and Gabe had been together for a while and were in a serious, committed relationship living toget

Who knew that a chance encounter at a hotel bar, a list of sexual desires, and a man willing and able to help her check off the items on her list would end up being her world a year and a half later, but that’s exactly what Gabe has become to Stevie. Even after all that time, their connection is still going strong, and the sex is still hot, at least when they have the chance to have it. Between two burgeoning careers and Gabe’s secret project, it’s been nine long days without either of them clim ...more

I have been waiting for more of the Quick and Dirty Series since I read Dirty Little Lies . I loved it and I could not wait to see how things would turn out for Stevie and Gabe. See my review of Dirty Little Lies here:

My BG ( book girlfriend) Stevie Sinclair is feeling slighted, ignored and downright
unwanted. I mean it’s been nine long days and nights without the pleasure of
Gabe’s sexual prowess and Stevie needs an orgasm. Now, we all know Gabe is
more than capable of delivering the big “O”.
Hmmm, what to do.

Stevie does not want to repeat what happened with her former boyfriend Max,
if Gabe is bored or losing interest she’ll spice it up, anything to get that hot back.

Stevie and Gabe are together and happy, but both have careers that keep them busy and they haven't had much time together lately. Stevie is concerned that Gabe will get bored with her so she starts scheming to plan special things to keep Gabe excited about their sex life. Finally she decides that what they need is a night at the club where their sexual adventure began, but things are not the same as when Gabe was in charge and the club is not the safe space it once was.

this heart rendering book was full of twist and turns. my heart was pounding, butterflies were doing all sorts of crazy things to my stomach and my body was shaking like I was about to lose the most important thing in my life...MY BOYFRIEND!
Gabe, is hiding something from Stevie and Stevie, is fears that Gabe has lost interest. what will become of this couple? how will they be able to move forward? without losing each other?

It was a nice continuation feel book 1. Not remotely as hot and it took a weird not sexy at all turn in the middle, but I like the characters and will read book 3

I'm going to settle with a rating of 4 1/2 stars for Dirty Little Tricks. Why has it lost 1/2 star from Dirty Little Lies? Well simply, I wanted more! This is exactly as the series is called, Quick and Dirty, whereas I am happy to have had Long and Dirtier, actually steam factor wise, this pretty much fogged up the whole house again.

Nooo, there was no Freebird! Big pouty face but then we did meet K............. a new addition to the Gabe and Stevie household! Huge grin about said animal's name a

Favorite Quotes:

“I’m on fire and sure I’m going to combust from the pleasure, or go blind, or be sent to hell in a hand basket, or whatever else the nuns used to tell me about sinners.”

My Review:

Stevie has turned into a bit of a Calamity Jane in this installment. Her adventures with the gorgeous Gabe continue, although she is having an uptick in anxiety when she convinces herself that a nine day sexual spell signifies relationship doom and fears that Gabe is losing interest in her m

Things have cooled off a bit for Stevie and Gabe, but Stevie makes one of her lists to make things better and heat things up. The first couple don't go off too well, so she decides maybe they need a night at Venus and there is a Halloween party they can attend.

At the same time Gabe has been busy making arrangements for their future as a surprise for Stevie. He senses that something is up with Stevie, but doesn't bring it up in discussion with everything else on his mind.

I think I need to review my own review about this series... come to think of it, I think I'm gonna give both books a 5star. I know I gave 4stars for the first book, but now, I'm absolutely giving them 5 stars.*I'm adding my rating star right now*
I love Gabe and Stevie. They are the real meaning of sexy couple and you need to read these books yourself to know what I mean. I'm thrilled to know that book 3 is coming out soon. So yeah, def be waiting for that one.

This is the second book in the Quick and Dirty Series Book 2.

Gabe and Stevie have settled into a normal life. Until a nine day sex drought spurs Stevie into spicing up their sex life.

I really liked this book. It was short but well written. l liked how Stevie and Gabe were developed in this story. My favorite part was the sweet ending. I just wish I had read the 1st book.
This second part to the quick and dirty series was to bad. But I think it ended to short. Could have added alike ire to it. Don't get me wrong it had the excitement, but it seemed to end short. The first book had you gripped all the way to the end. I guess I'll wait for the third book. Hopefully it's a bit better. Still liked it a lot though.
