He was her first true love…
And the worst mistake she ever made.

There’s always been a spark between Jude Grayson and Roni “Wild Card” Webber.

I Absolutely Loved Jude

Fantastic yet again!! Jude’s story was much like the rest of the Dirty series because it gave you so much baddassery, angst, steam and a romance that will have you swooning. Jude was not only best friends and grew up with the guys from Dirty he was their head of security and everything that needed “handleling”. Oh, you would think that’s enough but you would be wrong because Jude as also a nomad member of the Kings Mc which his brother was now VP of.

Roni was lifelong best

Whoa. I just finished my ARC of Dirty Like Jude. I’ve been dying to read Jude and Roni’s story since their past . . . err . . . relationship was revealed. I don’t know whether to categorize their romance as a second-chance or an enemies-to-lovers . . . I think I’m just as confused by their love as they are! And that’s not a bad thing!

Honestly there’s not a damn thing bad here. I loved the flashbacks of their stories. Jude’s glimpses of the band as they hit the big time were so fun. And those run

The Delight
Getting closer to the end of the series, this one gave me fits. Roni was likable, lovable and very good a job she takes on. But unfortunately I ended up not liking her. Jude also does a few things that tick me off. So while I wanted these two to come together, they just did things that left me wanting to smack them Gibbs style.

Dirty Like Jude is a rougher story than what I have read in this series. Yes, Dylan's story was rough, but not for Dylan as much as Ash. But Ash does

I have been waiting for the story behind Jude for quite awhile and was so happy to finally have my hands on his story. We have gotten a few teasers centered around these 2 (Roni and Jude) in previous books. I was hoping that their actually story would be smoking hot. That said the part I struggled with the most was that these 2 had some much backstory that they hid from one another it just pissed me off. I really just wanted to kick some sense into them for all the time they both wasted. The ...more

I have been wanting to know more about Jude and Roni's past since it was mentioned and especially since their little interlude in A Dirty Wedding.
I enjoyed this book and felt that it gave us a much more rounded picture of Jude and Roni as they struggle with their past history, hurts and protective shells.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes angst, heartbreak, protective Alpha males and women who don't put up with their crap.

Roni "Wild Card" Webber has a reputation for being the EASY GIRL. She does not understand why it is crime to LIKE sex. Roni's main problem is she would have stopped at Jude had he told her she was the one for him. Once Jude had sex with Roni it was over for her. Her heart belonged to Jude and Jude knew how to destroy it.

Roni stirred clear of Jude but still really liked the bad boys. Over the years she dated another King within the MC. She managed not too get to close as to run into Jude. Problem

I made it through the whole book but it was like wading through molasses. There were so many flashbacks that it seemed we spent more time going backwards in the story than going forward.

I did like that I learned a bit about MC culture, even though it gave the book a darkness that was not my cup of tea. I will avoid MC books in the future.

I read two other books in the series and enjoyed them much more. I want to read Zane and Maggie’s story and hope one day that Ash’s story comes

*I received an ARC of this book free from the author.*

There's always been tension between Jude and Roni wove throughout the other Dirty books, there's even been intense moments of heat, but in Dirty Like Jude you get their entire back story. Both of them wanting more, but obstacles kept keeping them apart. Until now.

Roni "Wild Card" had a sexual bucket list when she was younger and in her naïve mind there was nothing wrong with it...until it cost her the one guy she would have given it up for.

When I read a book I wish for it all! The parts that make your heart beat a little faster or the parts that make a tear fall either from happiness or sadness. I like the ones that make me angry at a character and wish that they would pull their head out of their you know what!! The ones where I laugh at a joke or the ones that make you feel the deepest sadness like you feel empty like the character. This book had it all for me!

I truly loved getting to know Roni and Jude throughout this book.
I just finished this series, so my review
will be for the series.

I am so happy that I found this author.
The rockstar genre is one of my favs, and
this author did it right. This series follows
the men of "Dirty" and all of their trials and
tribulations, and LOVES of being a rock star.
It starts out with Jesse, and he is everything
I want in my hero. He is a mixture of sex,
broodiness, loyalty and I loved reading about
him. He was the perfect start to this series.
Once he meets Katie, and he is done. I

I have been waiting for Jude since the beginning. He has been a mystery and with each book there have been glimpses of him that made me want more. And this book is just that.
Jude Grayson and Roni have always had a connection and sparks fly each time they are close. While Jude watched "Wild Card" with other men, he knew he could not let her near his heart because she could destroy him. So he watches from the sidelines until the pull between them is too strong to ignore.

All I can is O M G!!!!!! I loved Jude and Roni’s story, its everything I imagined and some. I literally finished the book the same day I received it and didn’t want it to end. Please give me more Jude and Roni!!!! Jude and Roni always wanted each other, but pride and certain circumstances kept them apart. The book is taken place 10 months after “A Dirty Lie”, after their secret reunion. I really enjoyed the book because we get to know Jude. Jude is so mysterious and private, we only get just ...more

I have been waiting for Jude and Roni to get their own book! Jaine definitely did NOT disappoint! She pulls you in with the previous interactions these two have shared. Then she hooks you with Roni and Jude’s longing for one another.

Roni is Jessa’s best friend, plus she is a bit of wild child. She loves to party, let herself go, but she tries to settle down. She is an extremely hard worker and currently is trying promoting different venues.

Dirty Like Jude is so good.

Jaine Diamond has fun and heartfelt settings, but what I love most about her writing is how she can weave chemistry in any character she writes. I'll admit I wasn't that into Jude and Roni as we see them mentioned in the earlier books in the series. I read this for two reasons: one I wanted to see where the Dirty series ultimately goes and two because I wanted to be convinced why I should care about Jude and Roni.

Roni is a party girl with a reputation but that's what

Dark & mysterious

I already adored Jude, but finally getting his story made me love him even more. I kind of love how Jude & Ronnie’s first kiss was the same night as Jessa and Brody’s first kiss and while everyone saw Jessa and Brody as meant to be, no one even noticed Jude & Ronnie’s story playing out at the same time. It’s so heartbreaking when you get the story from both sides and realize how convoluted it really is. If either of them had made a small change or communicated

Another great book in the Dirty series, this one, about Roni and Jude. Jude, a tough bodyguard and member of a MC, and Roni a strong girl from a tough life, story began a decade ago growing up with other members of the band. I really like the author's use of flashbacks to understand the characters development. The story is also told from each characters pint of view which I really like. Wow, what a rollercoaster ride their journey is, full of lust, angst, hurt, confusion and finally an HEA. The ...more

What goes around...

This was another solid entry into the Dirty world. Dual POV between Roni and Jude. Good amount of heat (though I expected more dirty talk given their story in Dirty Wedding) and some humor. I’ve always loved Jude - strong, silent, loyal, hot - but Roni has never been my favorite. I knew that this book would focus on their history and why they were the way that they were, but I never understood why Roni didn’t expect her promiscuity to cause issues in future relationships. No

Complex story line. Great characterizations. All characters involved were believable, had great depth and some had sustained growth over the time period of the story. A very angst riddled romance with many seriously sensual scenes. It was great to encounter the depth of "familial" ties albeit with blood brothers, club brothers or as with band brothers; brothers of the heart all. A very rock and roll relationship between the main male and female characters that finally got sorted out at the end; ...more

Another good Dirty book

To be honest, I was not excited about Roni and Jude’s story, probably because they were barely in the other books (except the short story). Roni just didn’t seem that interesting to me from the other stories, but she gets more depth here. I don’t like how she’s dealt with her past, but Jude, Dirty’s head of security, overlooks it. The chemistry between them when they get together is hot. I really enjoy the author’s writing style and how she builds up the characters. All in

The dark quiet security man you know next to nothing about falls for the town skirt that you were beginning to dislike. Turns out roni isn't all bad news. Throughout this series I had been disliking her and her past influence on Jessa. This book changes her a bit for me. Actually felt bad for her and dislikes Jude through most of this book for is treatment of her. Hard to put down even if I did find it a bit over the top with all the sex. Seriously do these characters in this series NOT know

Favorite Dirty story

I have to say this is now my favorite out of the Dirty series. Jude, you handsome, soft hearted protector...such a romantic at heart but to the world you wear your mask of badass. Roni, a broken soul looking for her knight in shining armour; someone to see beneath her tough-girl act. Two souls who keep dancing around each other but forever being elusive. Jude and Roni's story wraps around your heart and kisses your soul.

I chose this rating because this was a really good book. I really enjoyed most of the characters. Jude and Roni they were a very unusual couple. Roni had her little moments when she was younger trying to make other people jealous. Or she was just doing her thing. Jude was a man of mystery to me but he did his job and he did it well. This was a book about compassion, kindness, dealing with a whole lot of mess, and really just dealing with your feelings. But Roni and Jude they finally got

A Rough Ride

Dirty Like Jude goes back in time to the beginning of Jude and Roni's relationship: how they met, what happened along the way, the couple's years together and apart, and the people in their lives during those times. It is emotional and raw, unflinching in honestly portraying how easy it can be to confuse sexual confidence with promiscuity. Ms. Diamond seems to have a strong grasp of the MC way of life, and how a "patched" member would behave. While I cheered their ending, there were

Roni & Jude -

I wasn’t sure if Roni and Jude were going to keep my attention as I’m eager to get into the rest of Maggie and Zane’s story but boy was I wrong! I love how Jaine has interwoven these stories; connecting the dots across all of these couples making every step, every character makes important to the rest of the Dirty series!

Veronica and Jude have been fighting the attraction (and themselves) for years; while they are both strong willed and independent I’m so glad they took off

Had a wonderful day revisiting my favourite rock band and entourage. Trouble was after two hours it was time to say goodbye and leave the, again......leaving me wishing I could have prolonged my visit and stopped reading it from cover to cover so quickly. I devour these stories too quickly then I am left with a dirty sized gap in my life until Jaine provides the next instalment ......cannot wait for Jude and Maggie next... recommend this book ..? Most definitely I do and in the strongest terms.

I have read all the books in the Dirty universe and tremendously enjoyed all of them.
While Dirty like Jude can be absolutely read as a standalone, I would recommend reading the other books in the series to learn about the band history and all the other players involved.
I loved Jude’s and Roni’s complicated on and off relationship and it was amazing to finally see them find a way to each other in their HEA. This book is wonderfully written and edited, all characters are well developed and the

I received an advanced reader copy from the publisher to review

Firstly the book did not suck me in as the others books in the series. Having said that i did enjoy it. Roni was cast in a negative light in the previous books so it was good to see her character elvolve. Jude was always in the background quiet and unassuming so it was great to read his story. Before reading Dirty like Jude I was not really that interested in either character but reading the book and their past history I warmed to
