Fate. Destiny. Karma… She’s mine.
It all started with a broken heart.
And a breakup party.
Rock stars. Circus freaks. And a bachelorette party.
Too. Much. Booze.
An embarrassing tattoo.
And a twist of fate.
Her name was Danny.
I thought she was The One.
But then I lost her.
And I never thought I’d see her again.
Now… I’m a mess.
I’ve had my heart broken—more than once.
And my band'

Ash has been through the wringer between the breakup of his band and multiple romantic breakups. He’s a mess—a Hot Mess. But so damn likeable and loveable and you just want him to find happiness in life and love. And at last he does!
Ash and Danica are magic. Pure magic. They’re smart, funny, snarky, and ridiculously talented. And holy hell, sex ...more
Now, I don’t know if I loved it because I’ve been wanting to read Ash’s story since like 3 books ago or this one is genuinely that good.
Yes it’s long and I can probably see where some people are coming from in saying that not much happened for it to drag that much, but.... I wouldn’t have it any shorter, actually, can I please have some extra scenes from the future where they are disgustingly happy and have a dozen kids?
What is probably really jarring or out of ordinary is t ...more
I love Jaine Diamond’s books and have long anticipated Ash’s story in this spin off series from the Dirty books. Really loved that all the characters are still around. I’ve missed them. I was so happy that Ash finally got the girl, Danica; who deserves 100% of Ashley’s devotion!!! Was, therefore, a tad disappointed in the epilogue as I see trouble ahead. Given Danica’s insecurities of Ashley’s attraction to the opposite sex, I was left frustrated. Does Ashley really love her? Has he l ...more
Ash begins this book, beautifully broken. He's swearing off love, refusing to be hurt again. And by the end, our Ash is whole - really for the first time since we've known him. ::heart eyes:: Ashley Player is a romantic, and I'm not sure he knew it! Watching him go from perpetual bachelor to a ...more
We’ve met Ashley in the Dirty series (which was outstanding in itself!!) and he sure has lived up to his name…Ashley Player. Now that his band has broken up and he’s has been on the losing end of many relationships that meant something to him he is again having his “break up” party. During the bender he runs into the girl that has earned herself a tattoo on his upper inner thigh…or so he thought.
Danica is the twin of the “tattoo girl” and Ashely swears there is som ...more
What's not to love about Ash ? I like his chemistry with Danica it's sizzling and she's just the perfect girl for him. I loved her just as much ...more
THIS IS A MUST READ... Raw and Steamy as Hell
Thank you Jaine Diamond for letting ARC ‘Hot Mess’ but this honest opinion of book.
Just Yummy..... OMG!!! this book is a panty dropper.
I have always loved Ashley Player from the ‘Dirty’ Series. He has always been that brooding mysterious bad boy, but this book shows so much more. Honestly be prepared to set urself up for Author Jaine Diamond, an amazingly written new series based round Ashley player Adventures. I know I can not wait to read the next b ...more
Kudos to Jaine for keeping him true to his sexuality - I was so afraid it would get swept under the rug! I'm not as forgiving as Ashley, as I still don't like Amber and Dylan after how they betrayed him in Dirty Like Dylan, and I still don't care about them as characters any more. Ash deserves EVERYTHING good and he seems to be getting there - I hope! Loved his story. I don't think it's quite over yet. He's got his woman, his new band and a HFN - as this series continues I ...more
But fate had other ideas for him. He had never forgotten a girl called Dani who he met at a ski resort in Alaska and in a night o ...more
I don’t think I have the right to rate the book but if so, it’s a 3. I only could do so long of the description of how attractive all the characters are over and over. I couldn’t relate to them and perhaps, I have to read the other books to understand the band mates/ the environment. I do love the beginning of it and I was pretty okay of him being bi And figuring things out. Yet When I am struggling to read about the characters (which is way too many, I can’t ...more
Ash wants love and has had problems in all of his relationships. During the book we know he' s bisexual and has had both women and men. Ok great but the point of the book was him wanting to love and be loved. He finds that with Danika. Great story, couldn't wait for the HEA but instead we get Matt the new band member he wants to sleep with. I'm at a loss. So now he wants the love of his life and a random guy because the guy is hot? I'm so mad at this ending and ...more
I loved all the Dirty books so I was super excited about this new spinoff series. It did not disappoint! I found this book to be a little more surface. Not as deep. Wish there was a bit more depth but overall a good read I would recommend. Seemed like Ashley's story doesn't get all tied up in a HEA. Almost a cliffhanger if you ask me! Definitely more for him and Dani to resolve in their relationship because...MATT.
I've been waiting for this love affair ever since I met Ash In the Dirty series. I loved that series way more than I'd like to admit... and frankly was a little bummed out when I reached the end. But this!!! This book was the bomb! What a great first book for the Players series. It was sexy, and funny and had a few really heart felt moments. I really liked the mix of spice and nice in this book. I think Jaine as a talent for telling a story that feels real and a little raw wit ...more
