I didn't think I could love this book series anymore than I already did until Brooke showed up and stole my heart along with Dex's. Jeanne does such a great job connecting all the story lines and characters from the previous books while still giving this new relationship it's own space to grow. Dex is a man who finally realizes what he wants in life and is not ashamed of it which is really refreshing in an MC series. I literally laughed out loud at the banter between the brothers and felt the pa ...more

26% into the book and I’m really not liking Brooke. I personally don’t like a heroine who constantly tries to prove she has bigger balls than the hero. She is also a bitch to him just because she gets off on it. I sure hope Dex remembers he’s got balls of his own pretty soon.

100% - I have never hated a heroine more than I hated Brooke up until maybe 3/4 of the way into the book, when she sorta found compassion and her heart, and things kinda sorta equaled out a little bit more. Sorta. The words

Time to take out the he going to get the boot or stripped of his colors? This is Dexs book but not talking about him. If you have read any of the earlier books you know who I'm talking about. There is new information and now it's time for a decision.
Dex was born into the MC life and wants nothing else. He is a horn dog and knows he is missing something from all his hook ups but can't figure it out until a beautiful woman shows up and teaches him a thing or two.

Dex & Brooke

I really enjoyed having someone completely new to this life come in and twist all these bikers up on their heads. In a good way.
A lot of things have finally come to light and I really am happy because I think it was the perfect time for it to all happen the way it did.

Brooke’s independence is a true testament of how much she has survived in her life and how she deals with it. I love that she is a little dominate to Dex’s more submissive but don't mistake that as not being manly bec

Not sure I could have liked the h any less. She was a horrible, hard headed b***h throughout the entire book. I was hoping for some softening later in the book, but by the point it came, it was too little, too late. I was so done with her character that I started to skim the book to just get enough to move on to the next book without missing key info.

5 star review of Down & Dirty: Dex Dirty Angels  MC #8 by Jeanne St James

Audio Review

Raw and gritty there is something about this series that truly captivates me. This has become my favourite MC series that I have read. From start to finish Jeanne St James and the narrators Jacob Morgan & Ava Lucas drew me in and kept my attention. Ava Lucas has a versatility about her voices that really is fabulous and to me Jacob Morgan was was spot on as Dex.

I really liked Dex, I have from the first time he w

Hold on because this one is intense right from the beginning. Brook wants to know who her father is. She believes that he is part of the Dirty Angels MC. But she doesn't know who he is. But she knows what he has done. She meets Dex who is willing to help her but what is going to be the final price for both of them? I love Dex and Brook together. Such an intense chemistry. This book was gripping from beginning to end. Twists and turns that you don't see coming. A page turner that will keep you wa ...more

Dex is a born and bred DAMC man to the bone, but something was always just not wuite right for him. He just couldn't find that piece that was missing until Brooke walked into the the Shadow Valley Pawn Shop. Dex instantly knows he can't just let her leave and has to figure her out, and maybe himself at the same time. Brooke is in town for one thing, to find her father, and then get back to her life. It doesn't take long before Dex and Brooke get tangled into more than they bargained for. Things ...more

Ooooh, just like Marc from the Brothers in Blue series, Dex has a secret hidden under his shirt that I can't get enough of. Brooke is my kind of woman, tough as nails but with a vulnerability that you can't help but be drawn to. This book packs a punch not only in the gut but the heart, too. We didn't know much about Dex until this book, but he's proven himself and then some. I like a man who isn't afraid to switch now and then ... 5 stars! ...more

Hi BookLovers,

Oh my gosh I freaking love this series and Ms. St. James knocked it out of the park, again! Down & Dirty Dex allows us to revisit the Dirty Angels rguys and their more than significant others and, as always, we’re in for the ride of our lives. Dex was so fun to read. He’s a little more laid back than some of his brothers, but no less dangerous or over protective when he needs to be. Brooke is tough and sexy, definitely holds her own in a sea of alpha males. This story had a dash of mystery and e ...more
3.5 Stars
Do you like an alpha-submissive male? Well you get it in spades in this book. He's alpha outside the bedroom but in the bedroom he's totally submissive. I didn't care a lot for the heroine But I guess you need a bossy woman to be the dominant in the bedroom. It seemed to me that she wanted everything her way inside and outside the bedroom. I love this series and the secondary characters involved.

Hated to give this one 3 stars, but that was being generous. Problem being the “h” Brooke, she was annoying, painfully annoying. Actually love Dex, but felt there was not a connection with the two characters and Brooke was all wrong for him. It was so hard to get through this one, especially after following Dawgs book.

What a story! You would think after 7 books about an MC, Jeanne St James would run out of original ideas. But this story not only features Dex and many of the previous members of the club, but brings in Brooke giving us a completely new and different look at the MC . Brooke is the ultimate heroine. She comes into the story with a bang, and never stops. Looking for her biological father, Brooke not only stirs up a whole lot of dark history and betrayal, but she wins the heart of Dex. I love both ...more

Gotta say Dex & Brooke’s story is quite different then the other books in the DAMC series, but definitely not disappointed!!
Jeanne St. James took us on a crazy ride with book 8 and I loved it!! Besides each book having their own HEA, you never know how these alpha males are going to fall and give their hearts to the women who wrap them around their fingers.
Can’t help who you fall in love with, or how, just matters that you find yourself and your soulmate in the process. This book is a perfect

I know I've said this multiple times in my reviews of the Dirty Angels MC, but I freakin' love this series!! The men of the DAMC are bearded and tattooed men with strong alpha personalities. It is that reason I was completely shocked to find out what Dex likes in the bedroom. No spoilers here though. You'll have to read for yourself to find out what he and Brooke get into when they're behind closed doors (or out in the open). I love how Dex's protective instincts come out when it comes to Brooke ...more

K. Was this a great addition to the DAMC story? A resounding yes. We finally got all the answers surrounding Pierce and just how dirty he was. Big Diesel finally got brought to his knees (literally) by his baby girl Violet. By the way, we need a novella on Diesel after Violet was born and him adjusting to being a daddy. By far the best parts of this book included Diesel and him being Uber

WOOOOOOOW. Okay. Just. Wow. This was the 8th book in the DAMC series from the wonderful Jeanne St. James. I can honestly say that these books not only are getting better and better but they are definitely keeping me on my toes. How can I wait over a month for the next one?? I enjoyed reading this book because it was so different, it was different and unique. I haven't read many books that are like this one, because women like Brooke are not usually a huge favorite of mine, especially the ones th ...more

Bit of a sexual twist in this one & I really liked it! Dominant women rarely get space in alpha male romances & I appreciated the switch up.
Brooke is a strong independent woman, who owns her own business & is in town looking for her father. She doesn't know anything but that he is a Dirty Angel. The first Angel she meets is Dex, who is instantly turned on by her & has no filter. But Brooke can and does work with that, eventually pulling him into the back of her BMW & having *her* way with him. B

Wow! Talk about opening Pandora’s box!! Highly recommend!

This is a MC series, but they are not an outlaw club anymore. Even though they are legal they are still not afraid to do what is needed to protect their family.

Therefore, this is recommended for mature readers only (18+ years old) due to subject matter that may be a trigger or offensive to some including adult language throughout, steamy intimate scenes and violence such as assault, rape, sabotage, death, etc.

I couldn't see it coming.
Of all the DAMC men he was some kind of a black horse for me before reading his story. I couldn't really get a feel of him in the previous books. So it's just right the author gave me the biggest surprise with this one. The one thing I would've never thought of.
I can't really say I liked Brook but I'm not interested in reading about heroes/heroines who can pass as carbon copies of one another either. She surely was a unique woman thus being a great addition to the DAMC

With her comes a deep, dark secret and betrayals. One of their own has been deceiving them, he's hurt innocents and loved ones, he's been working with the enemy. Now it's time he pays the price.

What can be said about this book? It is over the top sensational!! This series just keeps blowing one’s mind and Ms. St. James threw in a curve ball with the sexy, spitfire, domme named Brooke and she definitely has the goods to bring any bad boy biker to heel. Brooke has come to Shadow Valley following up on some information she uncovered after the passing of her mother. Her first stop is the area’s pawn shop where she encounters Dex. From the moment Dex lays his eyes on Brooke, it is on like D ...more

Dex has long been seen as the laid back ladies man, one of the younger members of the DAMC. He has no trouble getting women and is a bit of a hound dog. That is until he meets Brooke. She is not what he is used to and she knocks him on his butt. She is in Shadow Valley for a reason and Dex will do whatever it takes to keep her in town. Before he knows it, he is in deep. But will a classy lady like Brooke be willing to take a chance on a biker?

I absolutely love this series and I've been following it from the start. This is book 8 in the series, Dex and Brook's story although we get the DAMC family involved in the story. So many secrets were revealed in this novel and I was shocked speechless. Jeanne St James knows how to keep her readers/listeners glued to the pages of the story.
As to be expected with this series it was funny, action-filled and steamy. I loved Dex and I loved that he was a bit different from the DAMC guys however I r
