Oliver Kent isn’t just drop dead gorgeous…
He’s drop dead dirty too.

I haven’t seen him in a decade. Ten whole years since Oliver Kent broke my heart and we said goodbye to our teenage dreams forever.

They say he’s a crazy successful businessman now, living wild in London with a huge bank balance.

And me? Well, I’m still here living the same old small-town life, pretty sure I’

4 Second Chance Stars ⭐
Drop Dead Dirty is an erotic small town, second chance romance that will make you swoon while incinerating your panties at the same time. There was no part of this story I didn’t enjoy.
Single mother Maisie Moore has lived in the same town where not much changes. But in ‘a tiny town with tiny dreams’ nothing could detract from her biggest accomplishment, her son Freddie.
Although content with her life, she has never forgotten the one boy that left it all behind, Oliver Ke
4 stars ⭐ ⭐⭐⭐

I wanted Maisie Moore, take two. All of her. Sweetness and light, dirtiness and depths. For better for worse. For all my strengths and sins, and hers along with them, no matter what the cost.

This was a bit different than the usual Jade story. Per usual, it was kinky and dirty, but it had a lot more heart than some of her more recent books. It wasn’t dark at all, nor did it have a ton of crazy drama or scheming characters. And you know what? That turned out to be just what I needed.

I struggled to finish this book. To be honest I didn’t expect it to be so drop dead dirty.
Moreover, I found it hard to connect either with the characters or the storyline.
I will not spare you with details regarding my objections for the characters’ actions or behaviours, but I was shocked beyond belief that it took Oliver 10 years for him to realise and acknowledge how much he was in love with Maisie. Mercy please!!!

Jade West is one of those authors that I know will always bring the erotic, filthy, dirty talking men into my world! Drop Dead Dirty is a second chance, small town, erotic romance that will leave you panting and wishing you were Maise because Oliver Kent is HOTHOTHOT!

This story is quite different than what I’m used to by Jade West. Yes, she brings in the kinky, erotic, dirty and filthy talking men into my world. But with this one, there was all of that AND more. She brought h

This one was a delicious slow burn, filthy dirty second chance at love. The characters had me hooked from the first page. You could feel their unrequited love and filthy fantasies. Plenty of emotions made it feel very genuine. Loved it! Definitely recommend.

Anyone who knows me knows what a huge Jade West fan I am- hell she could re-write a menu and I would read that thing from cover to cover!!

So I was super excited to hear she was back writing another book and I couldn't wait to jump right in.

And I was lucky enough to ask to BETA read this baby!!!!

What we got this time from Jade was a lot softer of a story- it's not your usual Jade West offering- it's a really beautiful story of second chances but with some Jade filthiness thrown in!

This book is an incredible second chance romance with a touch of Jade West’s signature dirty mind. No spoilers, but I have to say and mean it when I do, I truly loved Maisie. There was something about her...something charming...She was a very original and relatable character and that made the Kent journey that much more thrilling. I put this book down with a content feeling in my belly, and hope

Oh Ms. West, you certainly have out done yourself this time…Oliver Kent is nothing short of awesome! From the outset he I knew he was going to leave his mark and boy oh boy did he…I’ve still not recovered!

Ladies be prepared to revel in the magnificence that Mr. Kent brings to the page because like the teasers for this book said…he is downright filthy, and I loved him for it!
He had his own specific likes and dislikes and they were just what I wanted to hear all about.

Drop Dead Dirty is ripe full of heat, sweet, and romance. Ollie and Maise have a past. School sweethearts that took a turn for the worst. When Ollie comes back to town, all bets are off and he is determined to get the woman he has always loved.

Maise is very true to herself. I love how she weighs all the pros and cons and settles her heart and mind at the same time. Life isn't easy when the one you love comes back. She's a devoted mom and a sweet woman in the streets. In the sheets, however, she

From the get go, I was consumed by all things Oliver Kent and Maisie Moore. This is definitely second chance romance at its best.

The Oliver Kent effect is real! I was bewitched with him as much as Maisie was. The power of his desire to grab hold of their second chance, is forceful and captivating. His wonderfully, deep dirty needs, had me a quivering hot mess. Oliver’s tunnel vision had my stomach in knots and had me cry desperate tears - The feelings of will they ever be on the right page in li

Jade West has always been an instant read for me but this book I felt was not her best. I really hate saying that but it just fell flat. I'll start with the positive...Jade always writes beautifully...easy to read and the words just flow. The book had great detail and made the story much more rich. I loved the both MC friends from high school and the female MC son.Ok now the BIGGEST complaint and what really ruined the story for me was how weak the female MC was...I

I always look forward to dipping into a new Jade West book as I know it will be well written and that gorgeous trademark mix of a great story intermingled with filth of the highest order. Drop Dead Dirty certainly lived up to my expectations. I love the authors writing style and the way she creates characters you care about and who are not picture perfect. Maisie is one such character. On the surface a supermarket cashier, single Mum, living life in the village she grew up in, as did all her anc ...more

A second chance - slow burn read from the Queen of dirty words.. Ms Jade West!

Absolutely outstanding!

Oliver Kent is indeed DROP DEAD DIRTY but yes, he’s so much more.
He returns to Much Arlock for his school reunion with his sights firmly placed on Maisie Moore, his school sweetheart and now single mum to young Freddie.

I loved how they rekindled their lost love. Maisie’s love for young Freddie and her single mum status certainly resonated with myself from years long gone - trying to make the b

Second chance romance rekindled from a high school reunion.
I did enjoy this book a lot. It was very sexy..very dirty and enjoyable.
The part that lacked for me was the back story to understand why they made the choices the made and more of their personalities.

I love second chances and I love small town romances, and if you add the level of heat this author can bring?! I am all in.
Masie and Oliver were high school sweethearts, but their roads took a separate turn and Masie has now a son and an ex.
Oliver might have made millions but his marriage has failed and he is now unfulfilled.
The ten year reunion is the perfect time to go back in time and to the girl he once loved.
I honestly loved these two, how easy it is for them to catch up no matter the time

I love second chance romance! This one is dirty and sizzling hot! Maisie and Ollie ten years ago were amazing together! Maisie stayed in her small little town while Ollie became big in London. A high school reunion and Ollie shows up and Maisie wants her dirty man back! But they live in differently worlds. I loved the sexiness of this book. I do wish I had more of a back story and get to know there personalities more. Otherwise I couldn’t stop reading it! Oh and Ollie could dirty me up any day! ...more
Maisie is a single mom living in a small town raising her son on her own. She was with Oliver Kent when they were in high school but he left for London and broke her heart. News in town is Oliver is coming to their high school reunion. Maisie is going and if she gets the chance will she ignite the old fires between her and Oliver? This is a slow burn but sexy, steamy second chance romance. Oliver is sexy, dirty and hot. A great read.

I received a copy of this book and am leaving a review.

I was so hooked on this book! I found myself wondering how everything was going to play out. I will start out by saying Ollie is intense. He has made a name for himself in business and is high in demand. He is also very demanding in the bedroom. He has a presence about him. He is very much in control, which is something Maisie likes about him. He also learns a very valuable lesson in this book. He learns what is most important in life and to let loose of the control.

Is it really hot around here or it's me feeling all flushed and bothered while reading Drop Dead Dirty by Jade West? Because if there was an award of most appropriate book title ever, this book will win it hands down. Now throw second chance angsty heartbreaking love to the mix. And we have a clear cut winner in our hands.

They were teenage sweethearts who loved each other dearly. Oliver's ambitions over rode everything else for him, he wanted to get out and make it big. So he did, without Maisie.

10yrs later and Oliver is back for their school reunion. Both have changed, Oliver made it big just like he planned to and married the requisite supermodel looking wife.
Maisie had her life with Robert/Rob and they have their little boy Freddie/Fred.
However, all that glitters is not gold..
Oliver's marriage is over.

Lawd, who doesn’t love a Drop Dead Dirty second chance romance? I know I sure do!

Oliver and Maisie haven’t seen each other in ten years. And in that time period, Oliver has gone on to be one of the most successful IT entrepreneurs in the business. He’s dedicated his life to building and growing his business—to the detriment of his social life and his marriage.

In the meantime, for the past ten years, Maisie has remained in their small hometown, raising her son the way she was raised—surrounded b

Ten long years ago their love was destroyed by ambition, hopes and dreams.

He walked away to start his life in the big city, to developed his ideas, bring them to life.

She was always in his dreams though, and he never truly forgot her.

Her heart broke when he left, but ten years has passed and now she has a life, a family of her own and shes happy, or so she thought.

Now hes back in town, will he know her, be able to pick her out from the crowd, will he even care to,...

This was my second book by this author and she did not disappoint. I loved Oliver and Maisie. They were sweet hearts in school, but Oliver’s ambitions were too much for Maisie to comprehend at the time and she moved on to someone else, and that relationship didn’t turn out to be the best either. These two have years between them, but the feelings are still there. When they are thrown together again as fate would have it, the realization that the spark is still there between them and Maisie needs ...more

Drop Dead Dirty was a first time read for me by author Jada West. The characters grab your attention right away. The book has to grab my attention right away by 3rd chapter of a book if it doesn’t grab my attention I’ll put it down and not read it again. From the first page I was sucked in and was not able to stop until the end of the book. Drop dead dirty starts out fast paced and intense from page one and never slows down.

Drop Dead Realistic

I was going to give this a three-year rating but then I actually had to reason with myself and then I bumped it up to a 4.5
My reason is simple, the story is realistic. I understood what all the characters were going through and why. The choices that had to be made, the compromise involved in each one. Sure my single ass self was mad at everyone at the beginning but when I saw through their eyes, I finally understood what this was all about. Hurt people want to hurt you back an

Jade West has always been a favorite author of mine just love her stories and her characters.

Drop Dead Dirty starts with Oliver a small town boy that left the small town for the glitz and glamour of the city. Years and some dollars later everyone sees him as the IT man, but are things really paved in gold for the small town boy?

Jade West and her filthy, beautiful mind has done it again.
She always seems to hit the nail straight on the head with every book she writes.
I've always loved Jades books because they push the boundaries, they can be sweet but also down right filthy too and your just lapping it up because that's what her words do to you.

Absolutely loved this!

This was such a beautiful love story many years in the making. Oliver and Maisie were madly in love as teens--and as adults many years later--they still are. Being separated for years has had no effect on their pull to one another. But life has gone on for them, and they've achieved success in their own rights. Once circumstances put them back in the same place, can Ollie and Maisie have that same love they share when they were younger, and thing sere less complicated?

If you have read any of the "dirty" books, this one lives up the book name. Drop Dead Dirty by Jade West is just that..Drop Dead Dirty. Small time life, second chances, a single mom and so much more.

At times I felt the story was moving slow. Since it was a second chance romance, I felt the story could have been moving a little faster.

I really enjoyed the little things in this story. The friend's stories or the build ups that will

Jade has increasingly little to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s plenty happy with this. Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted.
Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile.
She lives in the Herefordshire countryside with a couple of hounds and a guy
