Author/series not for me. Our idea of romance varies too greatly.
Struggling artist, working barista, Katie has been in an artistic and emotional slump ever since her ex-boyfriend left her at the altar. Just when she thought she was ready to face the world again she runs into the incredible sexy, and unbeknown aced to Katie, rock star Jesse in her best friends office.

Jesse was just looking for a supermodel to star in his next rock video when a spit fire carrying individual sized cherry pies comes crashing into the meeting with her dog.

This is a first rate rock romance that gives you everything you would want; super-hot rocker who does not do girlfriends, a “normal” girl with a chance of a lifetime, a connection between these two that everyone around them sees, and sexual chemistry that is off the charts. Sure, people say this is the “same old story” but this one hit for me and I am an avid rock romance fan. This has become one of my favorites because of the author and the way she played out this rocker romance. You actually f ...more

Jaine Diamond is a new to me author, nevertheless, I decided to give this book a chance as I was intrigued by the blurb.  I had no idea what I was getting myself into, however, I hoped that my journey into uncharted waters would be a worthwhile one.  That being said I must confess that I enjoyed my journey, despite there being aspects of the story which I had an issue with.
This story was told from dual POVs. I enjoy stories that are told from the character’s POVs has it helps me to get an angl

I love me a rocker book and what's better then a sexy rocker book? A sexy rocker book where there's a relationship of convince. That is one of my fav genres to read, a fake relationship build on real passion and chemistry. And not did Jesse and katie have passion and chemistry in spades!! Starting with one of the hottest rock music videos ever.

After seeing them light up the charts with their hot music video, Jesse has a proposal for katie that he thinks she will love. Play his girlfriend for 6

Jaine Diamond is new to me and I believe she will be taking the romance world by storm. Her writing gives you all the feels and pulls you in. I read books daily and its so great when you find an author that can grab your attention and hold it. Her characters are well developed and the story is intriguing. Yes, it is a rocker romance; and yes, that has been done before, but when it is done well, it doesn't matter.

Fun and steamy!

This is my first time reading a Jaine Diamond book. I love the fake-to-real romance trope, plus, a rockstar? You got me! Dirty Like Me is the first book in the Dirty series. This standalone introduces the band and entourage you’ll get to know more during the next books.

The romance between Katie and Jesse was fun, hot and intense. And the dialogue was well done, I felt immersed in the story. I also loved the secondary characters - helloooo, Zane!

5 Electrified Guitars for Dirty Like Me

Oh my...where to start....I went into this knowing I wouldn't get much, but hoping for some insight on where life had taken Zeke and Maggie since Dirty Like Us had ended, or at least some of Jesse's thoughts on what he overheard. And I will admit Jesse had caught my attention in Zeke and Maggie's book....something about brooding guitar players gets me every time. If you only knew my personal history, you would see that trend entirely too clearly. Neverthele

This was such a fun, sexy, “I can’t put it down!” read!! I love Jane Diamond’s writing style, and her character development and story-telling are spot on once again! I adored the sweet innocence with a sassy bad girl side we have with Katie, and the sexy rock god Jesse Mayes was so much more than all hormones and no heart. Theirs was an unconventional relationship from the start, but that’s what made it so very fun to dive into!

Katie Bloom was so not a band groupie, so when she

I enjoy these secret fake fiancee and fake girlfriend stories and this one had a great start, but then at 60% it fell apart. The angst part of the story was weak. These was a separation but no real fight and not groveling or anything. I lost my connection to the main characters and really did not care what happened to them. Things were just there. Nothing special or exciting. There was banter in the beginning, but then it just became predictable. Nothing me

In the beginning, this book was exactly everything I was looking for in a romance. It reminded me a bit of Pretty Woman. Then it turned into something I couldn't connect with no matter how hard I tried. I'd say the writing is good, it just threw me for a loop how the characters personalities seemed to change pretty drastically overnight. Unfortunately, there are just too many amazing books out there just waiting to be picked up so I DNF'd this one...

I've read so many different rock star romance books, that I feel that the theme is a little outplayed. It's always about how a normal girl meets a sinfully hot musician, who's usually giving this normal girl an offer that's way too good to refuse. Somewhere a long the way real feelings will develop, but because they're always both hurting in one way or the other, they won't acknowledge this until it's almost too late. That's why it's so refreshing to stumble across Jaine Diamo

Surprisingly the author did a wonderful job keeping a balance between bad boy Jesse Mayes who is a cocky rock star and the more sensitive and caring Jesse. The author developed a background that gave the perfect depth to this character. I wanted to dislike him - he normally isn't my type - but I just liked him despite myself.

Katie started out as a great character. I liked her all the way up until she flakes near the end. I won't say any more but I just sort of frowned through that par

Before anything else, I received a digital Advance Reading Copy (ARC) of this book from the author herself in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, Jaine, for your generosity!

The author initially sent a three-chapter sample to my email, and right then and there, I just knew I had to keep reading. My interest in reading this novel never waned despite its predictability and limited originality – two things that aren’t necessarily negative points in a critique. Even though the plot has been use

I have to say I was a little surprised how much I actually liked Dirty Like Me. I hate to say it, but sometimes I have a tendency to judge a book by its cover and I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into. Luckily, I wasn't discouraged by this one because Janie Diamond had me intrigued after just a few pages! Katie, the main character, was likable, fun, and slightly awkward (in a charming way). As for Jesse, the love interest, h

I really enjoyed this book, mostly because I’m a sucker for a good romance, but also because the authors writing style made it enjoyable. However, there was a part of the story that kinda threw me for a loop. When Katie hugged Zane the night of her party it was mentioned that he looked at her oddly. The writing to me seemed to insinuate he may have some kind of feelings for her but then it was never mentioned again. I may have just interpreted wrong but I was waiting for something to happen thro ...more

This is a story about a Rock God and the girl next door. Who hasn't feel in love with a rock God and wondered what it would be like to go on tour and be his girlfriend? Yeah, we all have or you haven't found the right Rock God. For me and yes I am telling my age, it was Andy Gibb. I loved him, had the posters on my wall, his records and all the magazines. Yep, told my age on that one. Any way, this is J

Jesse Mayes is a rock star for the band Dirty. He is currently working on a solo project that he is putting everything he has into. Making music videos has never really been his thing. He just wants to be on stage doing what he loves. Jesse is not attracted to the fans that just want something from him or want to get in his band members pants. But when he finds out that Katie has no idea who he is he is very interested.

I am a sucker for Rocker and I have to say that I couldn't have been happier to find this new hidden jem with my buddy Sultan!!

What is better than a Cherry Pie.....

Well that is an easy answer and it would be Jesse Mayes!! These two crash into one another and from that first glance nothing will be the same. Katie is the shy hot girl next door type and everything that Jesse the sexy rocker has stayed away from. A chance to break from her rut and Katie agrees to star in a hot and steamy music view

Living your life is hard enough, but having your every move scrutinized has to be painful. Katie's one brief moment of humiliation has left her feeling wary of having any attention turned her way. Hiding in the shadows and drifting through life the past two years is her way of staying safe, of not being hurt again. After all, if one man will dump you at the alter, surely they all will, right?

Wow! I can't even tell you how much I loved this book! Thank you Jaine Diamond for including me in your release!

So here is the gist - Katie has a rocky romantic past and it has left her a little jaded. As the book begins, Katie visits her bestie at work and meets rock star Jesse Mayes. He is all hot and broody and oh so sexy. Their first meeting doesn't involve much more than a few sentences, but it leaves a lasting impression on both Katie and Jesse. Then, she get

This is a really fun read - which works well and has a smooth and easy writing style. I like it when the usual is turned on its head, and stereotypes are brushed away for a bit of reality. That is not to say that there are not the typical characters in this story - but the leads are refreshingly different - honest, mindful of their pasts and emotionally intelligent. Oh, and hot, hot, hot... I think that the way they firs

This book was simply fabulous. To get a 5-star review from me, a book has to have passion-check; it has to illicit a strong continuous emotion from me through many parts of the book-check; it must completely draw me into the author's world-check, check! For weeks now, I have started and stopped a book, and then Janie emailed me the option to read her book for an honest review. Although I like rocker romances, I have to read them in small doses because they is rarely a new twist, but Jaine made a ...more
