Samanthe Beck understands sexy and this book is no different. She uses the idea of a movie star needing an in demand trainer to whip her into film ready shape.

Hey, the Camera puts on the pounds...Good thing they have chemistry... can work it off with the regular exercises and then the sexual ones.....

Seriously, this did have a bit more going for it with the relationships Quinn Sheridan had with her mother and sibli

Dirty Games is a hot, dirty read that packs an emotional punch. I loved experiencing the highs and lows with the hero and heroine, Luke and Quinn. Their journey was at times an emotional rollercoaster and at other times so very hot that it set my Kindle Fire ablaze. I thoroughly enjoyed it and definitely recommend it to all.

My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin

Samanthe Beck takes readers on one deliciously naughty tropical getaway in the aptly-titled Dirty Games . While this book has sun, fun, and enough steam to delight anyone looking for a fast and hot read, there’s also a healthy dose of emotion that gives the story heart and makes you want to come back for more.

Quinn Sheridan is a hardworking actress on the verge of making it big, going from popular TV actress to blockbuster movie star. The only problem is

Yes! Samanthe Beck can write dirty, in this case it's the games two people play when forced to spend 6 weeks on a secluded island; she submitting her entire being to him. Ahh, but wait. Quinn and Luke have a contract. Quinn is a popular Hollywood actress ready to make the big leap from the squawk box to the big screen. Problem is her agent tells her she's not "camera ready." What that means is she's a tad out of shape for the lean, action hero of computer games that is slated to be her big role. ...more

Samanthe Beck is an author you read because you want a quick, sexy, very possibly dirty book...and this one delivers on that expectation.

Luke and Quinn are attracted to one another from the beginning, but, she is a client and Luke is not crossing that line. But, personal training involves a lot of contact, and the sexual tension in the book and between the characters increases as the story unfolds. And, it is a lot of fun to allow this to

The latest sexy romance by Samanthe Beck is part of the Tropical Temptation series, written by four different authors. This one takes an actress needing to buff up for her new action heroine part and pits her against her new trainer – a no-nonsense guy who has got only six weeks to get her in shape and somehow keep his hands to himself.

Luke McLean hates dealing with celebrities, even though they’re the ones responsible for where he is in his current career as a personal trainer. If it weren’t fo

Another sexy, fun romance from one of my favorite authors! Luke and Quinn get quite the workout together (in more ways than one) when the two are put together for six weeks in a tropical paradise. Both their jobs are at stake, and their witty banter and Luke's determination to keep things professional makes for a super enjoyable read that kept me up way past my bedtime turning the pages. I smiled, laughed, and swooned my way through this not-to-miss read!

Quinn, an actress, is preparing for a role as an action heroine, but unfortunately, she isn't given the amount of time to do so as she'd hoped. Thankfully, her agent has an idea to help Quinn.

Luke, a very well known celebrity trainer, has six weeks to turn a starlet into a super heroine, and he knows he can do it. However, he has rules, strict ones, and she must obey them.

Quinn has no problem with hard work, nor listening to those who know more about a subject than she does, but Luke seems to be

Quinn is an actress whose next movie was supposed to start filming in twelve weeks and has now been cut to just six! Her agent calls in the big guns! Luke McLean is a personal trainer tasked with getting Quinn in shape for the filming to start.  He's good, he's expensive, and he doesn't bow to celebrities.  Quinn will have to work hard to get there, but he can get her looking how she must. 

I really liked Quinn! She has a heart of gold, and when it comes to her family-especially her twin brother,

Dirty Games absolutely lives up to its title!

I'm pretty sure the personal trainer/client relationship isn't supposed to have that kind of stuff going on (it took a little too long to cancel that contract, given things that had happened earlier...) but wow, was it ever entertaining to read. I absolutely loved their "meet-awkward" (I kept laughing while Mini Moe #2 was driving and was repeatedly chastised for it--worth it, though) and it was easy to root for both Quinn an Luke as the story continu

LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!

An up coming actress is dealing with rough family issues, ends up injured and then due to injury falls out of shape for an upcoming role that her career depends on. A physical fitness instructor, once burned by an actress, is finally taking the vacation he's dreamed of for the last several years when he's worked tirelessly getting his business off the ground. Everything changes when a friend calls in a favor.

Loved the humor between Quinn and Luke; I was laughing out loud at time

Quinn Sheridan has been on a tv show, playing the role of a perky cheerleader for the past 5 years. She has finally broken through to the big screen playing a kick-ass heroine from a video game franchise. But the movie can still replace her before shooting begins, and a knee injury knocked her on her ass for a couple of months, so her defined body isn’t so defined anymore. Now she’s got to work with an egomaniac personal trainer on a private isla

Actress Quinn Sheridan needs to get into shape for her biggest role yet, but surviving celebrity trainer Luke McLean and his strict demands seems impossible. However, she's not about to give up, even if it means challenging him. Will Luke be able to whip Quinn into shape while convincing her to give them a shot at happy ever after, or will Quinn lose the man she's falling in love with?

The first three books of this series have been absolutely riveting reads, but this story -- I believe -- is def

Quinn Sheridan feels the weight of the world on her shoulders, and never hesitates to help her family, especially her twin brother, even when it's not in her best interest. And the latest drama just about lost her the part to the new action movie that will make her career, as she gained a bit of weight while dealing with the drama that she won't share with anyone. Now her agent had to call in a secret weapon, and off to a private villa at an exclusive tropical paradise with a tough celebrity tra ...more

If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times, Samanthe Beck’s book are some of my very favorite treats. She weaves the sexiest stories with characters are strong in will and intentions. Her newest book, Dirty Games, part of the Tropical Temptations continuum is all that and more. Her heroine and hero are put together on what should be a mission impossible, but it turns into something even hotter than the resort where they are staying.

Dirty Games is a hot read. Quinn has just 6 weeks to get herself in the best shape of her life for her new action role. She had injured her knee (or more accurately, her brother injured it) and has spent the months since in physical rehab with limited mobility. So while she's now in the perfectly curvy shape that the rest of female kind would envy, Hollywood's standards aren't so generous, as the camera adds pounds upon pounds, so her agent has sent her to rehab hell in the tropics with the best ...more

Reviews are opinionated. They generally come from what a person feels, doesn't feel. Like, doesn't like. You can have one person read a book and think it's the best thing since sliced bread. You can have another person read it and not like it at all. I've been on both sides.

Have you ever dived into a favorite author’s book without bothering to learn details about the storyline? I mean, I’ve read Samanthe Beck for years and loved every one of her sassy heroines, sexy heroes, and her ability to weave an uber steamy story overflowing with clever banter. Anxious for more of the same, I be-bopped cluelessly into Dirty Games, only to be brought up short by Luke McLean. Whoa. Whooooa!

First off, I liked Dirty Games. I would consider this one of the tamer of Samanthe Beck's book, but there's still some heat. I guess it's kind of hard jump into bed with someone who you are suppose to have a working relationship, and the hero kind of despise the heroine due to the fact she's an actress.

We have Quinn Sheridan. She's probably one most down to earth Hollywood celebs, but Luke McLean doesn't believe. He's pretty jaded from his past when it comes to Hollywo

This story is filled with some pretty powerful chemistry between Luke and Quinn. Both fighting to be in control. It was very entertaining (hint, keep a cool towel or fan nearby) to see them both take charge. The first time they meet, you could feel the sizzle. I loved that interaction. It definitely set the one-hour tone for the book. I loved how easily Luke could read Quinn. And she kept him on his toes.

Dirty Games by Samanthe Beck is a very enjoyable light read; a great way to pass a lazy Sunday.
I liked this author’s writing style. The story was set in present day and the world building was believable. There were very few actual characters in the story, but they were all well written. Of course, the main leads were fully developed, but side characters were also fleshed out enough that they were more than just a name and a plot device.
