What is it about this man that sets me off like no one ever has before? It’s not fair that I have no control over my physical reactions when it comes to Boone.

I love the Heroes that Meghan March creates in her stories. They’re 100% alpha and skilled in the art of dirty talk. Well, the title of this story couldn’t be more fitting!! The chemistry between the two main characters is off the charts H-O-T!! This was one incredibly steamy and en

*Spoiler Alert*

Another good girl who sets her life on pause just so she could:

1. Run a bar (that was failing) simply because it was the last connection she had to her mother who was murdered in the bar

2. Pay the care bills and generally support her ungrateful and abusive father

3. For reasons unknown, allow her idiot cousin treat her like trash.

Ripley, our FMC, is hardworking but not the sharpest tool in the box and while I have no qualms with anyone supporting their loved ones, the recipient h
Dirty, delicious, and downright DELECTABLE! Cover to cover, this was absolutely mesmerizing! Boone and Ripley are two of my ALL TIME FAVORITE characters from Meghan March! I had no doubt in my mind that REAL DIRTY would be absolutely EVERYTHING! Meghan March just DOES DUETS RIGHT! I have been bouncing off the walls the minute I heard that this duet was coming and that Meghan was giving us Boone Thrasher's story.

Meghan March has strummed and found the beat to my heart!!! Yes, she is back at it again with her dirty-talking alpha heroes and this time around she delivers us country music bad boy, Boone Thrasher. So ladies, prepare to be singing, swooning, chanting, and getting REAL DIRTY with Boone!!!!

I have learned that no matter what mood I'm in, I absolutely love Meghan March's writing. Maybe it's her characters too. Yummmmmy!!!!

We met Boone Thrasher in the pervious duet Real Good Love. I was excited to get his story and holy cow his sweetness surprised me most. I already knew he was hot, but holy southern charm. This authors male characters get hotter 🔥 and sweeter, I'm dying to get more Boone in the next book ..

Can I be Ripley so I can have Boone? Actually, I’d love to be Ripley period regardless, but holy hell these two...I swear sparks of every kind were flying all over the place because of these two! The heart melting sweet and panty dissolving smexy were on point and with a good dose of sass added into the mix I couldn’t put this one down!

I’ve loved Boone since meeting him in the Dirty Billionaire trilogy. He’s a big time country music star with a good old rednec

I didn’t hate it…but I didn’t like it all that much either! I found the plot not that interesting, and pretty boring. Three stars are there just because the whole story was somehow cliche. Something already seen in so many books......

I've been interested in reading more about Boone ever since the Dirty Billionaire series and this book did not disappoint!

Boone Thrasher, good lord, that man is sex on a stick! The way he treated Ripley was so swoon worthy and that dirty mouth of his!! He's pretty much the perfect guy and I need a Boone for myself!!! I love him so much!

Ripley, she was awesome! I loved her attitude, fire and sass! She's probably one of my favorite heroines.

Boone and Ripley's chemistry was amazing!!!! Ms. March did not disappoint with her character development. Upon learning Ripley's story, my heart hurt for her. I want her to have the HEA that she so deserves!!!

I'm so ready for Real Sexy to hit........must be patient!!

“I want to hate him. Everything about him. He shouldn’t make me want to climb him like a mountain to plant a flag at the top saying RIPLEY WAS HERE. No way. No how.”

I absolutely love Meghan March’s duets and when I found out she was releasing another one, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Meghan March has such a talent when it comes to writing sexy alpha heroes; I instantly fall in love with the heroes she brings to life. I mean seriously, a hot country music singing bad boy, I
I really enjoyed this read. I don't know why it has taken me so long to get back to Meghan March's work...I fell in love with it awhile ago, and took a break; then never came back until this one...I will be changing that immediately!

I fell in love with Country singer, Boone; who is our hero in this story. He may be rough around the edges, but he has a heart of gold...oh, and he is one HOT dude!! LOL

The first word that comes to mind.......AMAZING!!!! The anticipation to read this book was too much that I couldn't put the book down once I started. The chemistry between these two characters was off the charts hot as hell, they were burning up the pages. Between the sexiness, swoonworthiness and sass, Boone and Ripley have just become my new favorite couple. You definitely won't want to pass up this read, then again why would you.

Overall Opinion: This was a cute start to the duet. I was entertained, but I'm not going to be rushing to put it on my favorites shelf. I'm anxious to see it all play out and I hope that they get a good HEA ending, so on to the next!...

Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Ripley and Boone's story. Boone was just stood up to his own proposal to his girlfriend, and ends up hiding out in Ripley's bar. Ripley has a rule about being with celebrities in any capacity because of her Mom's

First off if you love a man who is a country boy at heart and who also has just enough alpha to be sexy but not arrogant then you need to read Boone because he is all that and then some all wrapped into a hot sexy package!!!

Meghan March is a fairly new to me author, I know, where have I been!! I thoroughly enjoyed Real Dirty, which is book 1 in the Real Dirty Duet. I guess I should warn you, it does end with a little cliffy. Although, it is more like a “what the ????” moment.

Boone Thrasher is country music’s bad boy. He just has a very public, and quite embarrassing, break up with his fiancé. But Boone realizes his mistakes, and sets his sights on Ripley, owner of a local bar. But Ripley is feisty, and not interest

Boone made me Swoon.

What an amazing read, full on Swoon fest went on here.
Meghan has the sexiest men I swear. Boone and Ripley will steal your heart in this one. She's a tough, stubborn, feisty independent female with tons of SASS and it's hard not to want to be her. She freaking rocks. I love her character so much. There's just something about a strong female. I may even have a girl crush on her. I just feel like I can see her and she feels real to me. That is what I love about Meghan's
3* (not really) dirty STARS!

Another dirty series by Meghan March and I couldn't wait to meet Boone Thrasher. Who is he? Boone was Holly Wix's (from Dirty Billionaire) singing partner. They were paired together before Holly met Creighton Karas. Honestly, I couldn't connect with Boone at all since his first appearance and I hope this book will change my vision about him.

Meghan March writes one of the best alpha males out there, seriously!! Boone is stealing my heart with his sexiness and his persuit to get together with Ripley. Again, a great addition to her Dirty spin-offs and for me, even better start than the last duet!

Going straight to reading Real Sexy after that cliffy at the end!

Riley and Boone, I have to say I love how down to earth they both are.
Riley sees things as too good to be believed and Boone doesn’t really let stardom get to him.
I kinda love that she doesn’t give a hoot who he is, and she would rather he just leave her be than be in her life. But that kind of changes when feelings become involved.

I do like the end of this book, the feeling like they are just 2 regular people. Then the cliff-hanger.. I know it’s meant to be a duet but it j

Meghan March is another favorite writer of mine for three reasons: her heroes are the absolute perfect blend of dominance and care for their heroines, the women are sassy and independent, and the stories are always laced with intrigue or suspense, making her stories absolute must reads.

4.5 stars

Meghan March’s Real/Dirty duets just keep getting better. I tore through Real Dirty and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Boone Thrasher is a larger-than-life country music superstar. He’s made brief appearances in previous books, but he always came across as a caricature to me. In this story, we get to know the real Boone—an honorable, down to earth man from humble beginnings. His dream of settling down with a wife and kids goes up in flames when he has his heart broken in a very public way.
