For me, this book didn't start off very well, and from there I just couldn't get into it. The story opens with Samantha, a twenty-six year old, running away from her parent's house, drinking way too much, throwing up all over herself, and then asking a complete stranger to live with him and work for him.

The first glimpse of Samantha we got wasn't a good one and from there her character was never redeemed. At least not for me. I was hoping that Clay would be such an amazing character that it wou

Oh how I like surprises like these! I honestly completely forgot I had requested this book to review, and even worse, I had forgotten it was on my kindle for a little while now.
Then one night of insomnia, I was restless trying to find sleep and had just finished a Kristen Ashley reread. And you know how empty you can feel after a great comfort read. Right? The book hangover thing? Yes. That.

Dirty Sexy Saint!!!! So, the title alone, aptly titled Dirty Sexy Saint by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde brilliantly and perfectly suits this book. I would have never imagine that those three words could basically describe this book but it does. Well, we aren't talking about a Holy Man of the Cloth kind of Saint but a man who has the heart of a Saint but who can easily

This is a nice easy hot sexy read.
Her family is incredibly rich and so Samantha Jamieson has lived a very privileged life, everything has been given to her and apparently that includes a husband, a wedding and her future all laid out exactly as her parents want but they never stopped to consider that it might not be what Samantha wants.
For the first time in her life she says no and walks away from her life and she's just lucky that she walks into Clay Kincaid's bar.

I started reading Dirty Sexy Sinner while back. I remember I like it. So when I picked up Dirty Sexy Saint, I thinkmy taste is evolving. Despite of all the positive reviews regarding this book, I found myself bored too death.

The plot is standar. Nothing new nor exciting happens. No drama/ twist. The insta lust is happening way too fast. I do not get he chemistry/ vulnerable connection between the characters.

Overall I am disappointed. Moving on to the next book....

Samantha Jamieson is a quintessential rich girl. She grew up having the best of everything and never having to work to have it. Her sheltered life consisted of private schools, parties and becoming "groomed" for the life her parents want for her to have. It revolved around making sure that the family company stayed IN the family, and that means Samantha has to marry someone her father deems capable of taking over Jamieson Global. But when Samantha actually HEARS her father having the "marriage" ...more

Yes, I decided to finally read Dirty Sexy Saint because Passionflix's movie adaptation is releasing next week and I am pretty excited about it! Actually, I really enjoyed the book and meeting these characters. Clay and Samantha have mindblowing chemistry and I loved reading their journey (including the past and present). I also loved the rest of the crew and I can't wait to read the other books in the series because I loved Mason and Levi too! These Kincaid brothers sure

A 5* read. As part of my membership to Romance Read of the Month Club, I received a notification of a new release from two of their featured authors. It was my first book by authors Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde, but for sure I'll check their other work.

Dirty Sexy Saint is the story of Samantha Jamieson alias Cupcake an heiress running from her controlling parents & Clay Kincaid alias Saint Clay a bar owner, two people from totally different backgrounds that shouldn't be together.

This is the story of Samantha and Clay. I have to say that this book wasn't exactly what I was expecting but that wasn't a bad thing. The story is nice and the plot is good. The beginning of the book felt kind of slow but after Chapter 5 everything started to make sense.

Samantha has a dream but her parents don't agree with it. So, she run away in order to make her dream come true. I liked Samantha! Although she comes

Being a big fan of both Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde, I was more than a little excited when they announced they teaming up for a new series. Dirty, Sexy Saint is the first book in this series and it is flipping fantastic! I love when characters are on opposite end of the social spectrum, when one has preconceived notions of the other one and when the attraction is so thick from the moment they meet that you can feel it engulfing you as you

This is the story of Clay “Saint” Kincaid and Samantha “Cupcake” Jamieson. Clay is a bar owner with a lot of trauma in his past. His childhood was filled with emotional and physical abuse, neglect, parentification, and fear. Samantha is an heiress to a investment empire. Her every decision is determined by her parents, and only for the benefit of appearances. She finally draws the line when she discovers her boyfriend of 8 months, and her father are treating their relationship as a business tra

Hmmm, this was an unexpectedly enjoyable read. Although the jury is still out on how much I like Samantha--I like my ladies to be kickass career ladies and she wasn't. She was in her mid-twenties and was still dependent on her parents. That did not appeal to me at all.

But other than that, this was a good read. I loved Clay! He was a self-made man and I gobbled all that up. Sooo hot! I actually loved the chemistry and all that attraction between him and Samantha. Feels, baby, feels! The only regr

I didn't like this one much. It's probably me (I think I'm getting too picky) but the characters seemed one-dimensional. It was a case of insta-lust, which I'm fine with but it has to be done right and they can't always be thinking about sex. I will lose interest in a book fast if that's all the H and h are interested in. There has to be some story and some character development. I just didn't find it in Dirty Sexy Saint. Or maybe the hype was too much? I'm not sure. Either way this was not my c ...more

​Dirty Sexy Saint is the first book in a three book series which promises to bring some hot sexy fun into your life. This is my first time reading these two Authors, and this is also the first time they wrote together, and what a great co-writing debut it was! The characters were easy to fall for and the writing was wonderful and surprisingly fluid for it being two people, I will definitely be reading more books written by these two talented ladies.

This was HAWT! Loved both the Clay and Samantha, the H and h in this story. They were both strong, caring people, it wasn’t hard to root for them! Their story is sweet, funny, a little dark but also had some really lighthearted moments too. It was a love story between two opposites, people from completely different walks of life that somehow just click. Each one offering just what the other half needs. I loved their instant attraction, the instant emotional connection and even though there was s ...more

When I started Dirty Sexy Saint I really should have DNF it, the only thing that stopped me was I didn't want my 2nd book of the New Year on that shelf. I didn't like Samantha at all but I figured I would try anyway and see if it would improve with the intro of Clay. Honestly he was no thrill either so that hurt my enjoyment of the book even more. The whole story I thought was ridiculous and I never felt any connection between the two. I probably won't continue this series but if I did read anot ...more

How Dirty is Saint Clay ?

Well, not as dirty as you think. Clay is a sweet and kind gentleman from the tough side of Chicago who just happens to be a bit kinky. Clay is the product of a troubled/abusive childhood and he is still dealing with the repercussions/internal damaged its left. There's just something about a hero who feels that he is unworthy of love, kindness, affection and intimacy. It just pulls at the heart strings. Especially, when the hero is betrayed by the one person in his pa

This was a cute, quick, sexy story that was nice and easy to read. It wasn't anything overly exceptional and it will most probably be soon forgotten but I enjoyed the funny banter, the charming main characters, the colorful secondary ones, and the overall setting. The plot wasn't anything unheard of. The rich girl with the boy who grew in poverty. Classic setting but there was this hot passion between the MCs and their background stories kind of intrigued me. The pacing was a bit on t

Dirty Sexy Saint is the first book in the aptly titled steamy romance series Dirty Sexy by co-authors Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde. It’s about three brothers with a troubled past who are only looking for sexual satisfaction with no time or inclination for love and commitment. This story is about Clay, the eldest of the three brothers and a self made man who runs his own bar. He’s all about the fast hook-up, and the only thing he’s committed to is hot sex of the down and dirty variety. That all ...more
