Oh dirty indeed!

This is a sweet and easy to read story about a rich girl and a blue-collar guy.

Heidi is the daughter of two well known senators and since very young she's been traying to please them. But not only it did not work, but they also used her and manipulated her at every turn for their benefit.

She is sweet and goofy, sometimes naive, but she is also genuine and honest.

Max is really good plumber trying to save his business and find a way to better care for her sweet daughter, Kat.

Dirty Secret

This is my first book by Elizabeth Lynx, but it will not be my last. Dirty Secret is about Heidi and Max. They definitely come from very different backgrounds and grew up in very different circumstances. Heidi's parents are two senators, who are not loving and have used her as a pawn her whole life. Max is from a blue collar family (plumbers), and he came from a very loving and close-knit family. Heidi and Max live in the same neighborhood and have been watching one another,

No one gives awkward romance quite like Elizabeth Lynx. She has a knack with her characters giving you those sexy moments but also filling them with that awkward laugh out loud moments that just make them seem like real people. That right there is why I love Elizabeth Lynx books so much. Dirty Secrets is filled with sexy and laugh out loud moments. Heidi is adorably awkward. She is loyal and gives amazing food porn. She will leave you in stitches. And of course there is Max. I mean you had me at ...more

*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.*

Cute and funny, not what I expected when I realized it was set in DC and involved politics. I'm personally not a fan of political intrigue, but this did not go down that path. The seedy side of politics did come up, but definitely fit the story of Heidi's childhood. The first sightings between Heidi and Max were adorable albeit stalker-ish, but showed exactly how people get tongue tied when face-to-face with the object of their fantasies.

Heidi, is so sweet. I loved her spirit, she saw the good in everyone, it made her naive in a way but not bad. She was also very shy, and I found that to be endearing, she is just like everyone else. She can't help but be awkward, and funny no matter what goes wrong. I absolutely loved her.

Max, man did I want my own Max. A strong man, with a beautiful body, and just an overall good person. It was a joy to read, too see his thoughts and how he was trying so hard. He is every women's fantasy

Funny, poignant, witty, sarcastic, steamy love story between 2 people that aren't quite sure of themselves, let alone anyone else. Elizabeth Lynx has a way of painting us a great love story. Looking forward to more!!

A sweet and fun read.
Heidi, a bit on the quirky side who blur out things without thinking and tells bad jokes. Her neighbour Max, a handsome man that are good with his hands. Could it be better?
Not to mention her best friend and her parents...the last, not so good.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book

Received this book as an ARC Read

This book was an entertaining and sweet light read.
I found Heidi to be a genuine character who was very likeable, funny and down to earth. Max is also likeable, a good mix of hot yet genuinely nice and a loving father. I did enjoy how it was different from my usual read with Heidi being rich and Max being the blue collar guy.

This book grab your attention and pulls you into falling for both Max and Heidi, hoping they get together Each page I read, i enjoyed more

Such a cute and funny story from the first page to the last. Max and Heidi are a great couple, who come from two totally different backgrounds, that fall in love despite their differences. Great supporting characters (Kat and Max's dad) that you will love reading about. Very well written and keeps your interest throughout the whole story. First time reading this author and it won't be the last!

This is a fun, flirty easy read.

Max is a plumber, he goes to Heidi’s to fix her pipes, but soon discovers that her pipes are worse than he

Then her pipes burst and the one guy to help is the guys she has been secretly watching from her house. Max just lives right around the corner and gets a call for a busted pipe. Little does he know its the lady he has been seeing from a far and is intrigued by. Heidi and Max are so opposite in life. One was raised with wealthy parents who could ...more

I enjoyed reading this book! This is a sweet story between a single Dad( Max) who is a plumber and the daughter of 2 senators ( Heidi ). They both live in the same neighborhood and seen each other from afar bit don't meet till Heidi has a plumbing problem. Max didn't know who's house he was called to till Heidi opened the door and the story goes from there and kept me reading to find out what happens between them. I recommend this book!!!!!

A baker and a plumber

I liked the story.

I liked Heidi and Max. Who wouldn’t love a hot single dad plumber?

2 people as different as can be Heidi is a baker who has a dad in politics and Max is a plumber who is mostly humble and down to earth.

Pipes need to be fixed in Heidis house and Max is just the right man for the job though I think he is the man to steal Heidis heart.

Heidi has lived a life which caused her to be lonely and made her own way in life. Perky and goofy, she fools people but the book has twists and turns when she meets Max. The title fools you a bit and made me not want to read it at first, but after i began to read it, I absolutely loved it. As love would have it, Max, the plumber and Heidi watch each other until fate stings them. A good book and I give it a five.

Fluffly and sweet!! I didnt realize that it was a novella, my previous review was off the mark. Since i have come to the knowledge of this being a novella, I really liked it. I normally dont read novellas because I like more story thats just me. But like I said, this sotry is fluffy and sweet!!

I believe this the first book I've read by Elizabeth Lynx and I can honestly say I wish I had started reading her earlier. This book was a cute and funny book. I love it when two people who are completely opposite fall in love and that is exactly what Ms. Lynx provided us with. I definitely recommend this book.

This book was cute, sexy, funny and entertaining. Max and Heidi are complete opposites, she’s from a rich political family and he’s the son of a plumber. Instant attraction when they meet. Love all the secondary characters as well.

With a plot that sounds like a dirty movie how cam you go wrong? A fun, sexy read about a blue collar single father and a political princess. Plenty of heat, sweet and some awkwardness that make for a good read.

For the first 60% of the book I felt like I was in the middle of a dumb blonde joke that wouldn’t end. It took me 3 days to read it. I read 2 books in between trying to finish it. The last 40% redeemed it and boosted it to a 3 star.

It is an ok read for a novella it was a dry read for me. Max and Heidi are lacking the dynamic character the story needs. It does have a little spice but left a lot lacking.
