Almost the first half of the book was very interesting and entertaining.

Katie was an ordinary average girl.
Jesse was the gorgeous and famous rockstar.
Katie was staring with Jesse in his new music video as his girlfriend.
After that, Jesse hired Katie to be his fake girlfriend for six weeks in his tour for his new album release.

The plot met basic requirements while the sex scenes made plenty of rounds which became repetitive and tiring.
There was neither romance nor sufficient charac

Rating: 3.6 stars to Dirty Like Me

‘It wasn’t a love song, exactly, or a breakup song, or a make out song, but some kind of blood and gut and soul-fueled synthesis of all three. A kind of musical hate f*** wrapped in the sweetest love letter.’

’This was heartbreak in slow motion.’


‘Dirty Like Me’ takes that fanciful scenario that gives the average girl fantastical hope by placing ‘ordinary’ Katie Bloom in the shoes that some girls could only dream of; in the arms and fanatic life of a famed

Dirty Like Me was an awesome rock star romance with a great H & h who were both fun, sweet, and totally sexy with smoking hot chemistry. I loved it but I will say that it felt longer than it needed to be because it did slow down for me but overall I'm so happy I read it. ...more

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

Jesse Mayes is a hot rockstar who has the world and women at his feet. He could have anyone but after he films a video for his new solo album with an 'ordinary' girl , he makes the girl in question an offer to be his fake girlfriend for 6 weeks whilst they tour.
This was a good read and Jesse is a sweet hero under all his rockstar glamour. I liked him and I also liked our heroine, Katie Bloom. She doesn't fall at his feet despite their initial insta lust. I was rooting

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

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

I do enjoy a good rockstar romance, although I sometimes struggle with the alcohol, drugs and sexual promiscuity that seems to accompany this genre.

I did quite like this one, and it was nice that the couple didn't have wall-banging sex before we hit chapter 2, but there was just a bit too much of the "oh please, just fuck me, already!" line, (it ran on a seemingly endless loop) and that takes the romantic shine off it for me.

The continuous public grinding and face-sucking/groping got on my nerv

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...

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

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.

This was a feel good story, rock star makes a girl an indecent proposal. Spend six weeks with him with on tour being his 'fake' girlfriend. It starts off as a business deal, but as time goes on she starts to do exactly what she feared. She falls for him. The story was good and I really like all the characters.

I read this book because I legit felt bullied into it. Every single Amazon search I’ve done for the past 6 months has shown me this book first. The author’s ad spend must be astronomical, because it doesn’t matter what I was searching for, Amazon thought this book was the answer to my prayers. Need a great romance to read? Try Dirty Like Me! Want the latest Melanie Harlow book? Try Dirty Like Me instead! Want shinier hair? Dirty Like Me can help! It was getting ridiculous! So, finally, I caved. ...more

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

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!

After thinking about it, I'm going to have to lower the rating quite a bit. Something rubbed me the wrong way about this story and I'm going with the actual 3 star rating this time.

Actual rating: 3.75 stars

The sex scenes were steamy and brought the rating quite up 🤩🤩🤩

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

This was such a sweet and steamy rock star romance. After the last disastrous rock star romance I read, I was afraid that Dirty Like Me might also disappoint me. But I really enjoyed this one.

Katie Bloom happened to be at the right place at the right time and got chosen to star with hot rock star, Jesse Mayes, in his music video. What she didn't know was that she was going to be stripped down to her undies and pretend to be sexing Jesse up. The shooting of the music video was so much fun to read

Characters

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

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
