Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars
What a thrilling and emotional conclusion to Dirty Crazy Bad!
I expected action, I expected passion, and I also expected a wonderful plot, but what I wasn’t prepared for was the big emotional upheaval that surrounded one tattooed, pierced, and kinky man- named Ares.
Ares continued to surprise me throughout this entire duet, but was especially moved during the second half of this duet. I loved his character growth, but it was his big emotional surprises that kept me guessing on how he was going to react OR not react to everyone that revolved in his life that really touched me. The strife he felt, the weight he carried on his shoulders was felt by everyone around him and it rolled off the pages.
It was apparent that while Ashley was the center of the guys’ worlds, Ares really took center stage when it came to how she moved forward with the whole poly relationship between Jase, Chad and Ares. It wasn’t really meant to be conceited, Ares struggle just ran deeper and watching him navigate it hit right in the feels. ❤️
While Ares was a wonderful complex character, Jase was my loveable favorite- checking off all the boxes I love in a strong MC. His steadiness and strength was easily the best thing about him in this second half of the book and I adored his outlook on their shared relationship when asked how they made it work; Ashley is the center and what she wants she gets…um, yes please!! Can all men take a lesson from Jase? He’s no pushover, especially when it comes to Ashley. He’s the solid strength when she needs whenever she needs it. It’s no wonder he’s my fav. 🥰
I don’t want to say too much about Chad, other than he has a lot of making up to do from the first book. However, he’s so easily forgiven after what he goes through in this one. Now my lips are sealed on Ashley’s first love. I don’t want to categorize him as third, because I also love him dearly and its also hard to choose. I love that Ashley doesn’t settle for choosing either. 😍
Speaking of Ashley, while she isn’t a replica of Lo, because this isn’t Lo’s book, it’s Ashley’s and she is fierce in her own way. Ashley is sweet, sensative, intelligent, and hardcore all rolled into one. She fights for her men while feeling things very deeply. Ashley also realizes that she wants all three men in her life, but she won’t push any of them into something they weren’t comfortable with or that they didn’t want. She’s sort of an empath mixed with a warrior and it’s a great mix and very appropriate for the three men in her life.🔥🔥🔥
Dirty Crazy Bad has a lot of plot wrapped up with the secret society, but not too much that you can’t keep up with everyone involved or all the secondary characters that evolve from it. It is the perfect mix of suspenseful swirled with passion and now that we know all of the players, I’d love to return to this world and get to know a few more of the characters.
The second book in the Dirty Crazy Bad duet.
In the secret society of The Luminaries, no sin will go unpunished…
The Greed & Gluttony Luminary has trapped us into executing his evil plans, and it seems we have little option but to agree. Carter has orchestrated Chad’s kidnapping, and he holds my mom’s life in his hands.
Then he drops a game-changer
We must play our parts—or at least look like we are—because the fate of our loved ones, and the world at large, depends upon it. There is no choice.
It’s a delicate balancing act, with many obstacles and no guarantee of success. Carter has spent years planning his takeover and knowing who to trust is impossible.
Teamwork is the only way we can defeat him. But that is challenging when relationships are fractured, the guys are sworn enemies, and loyalties have been pushed to their limits.
It’s up to me to make this work, so I will push my grief aside to be there for Ares, Jase, and Chad.
Rhett Carter cannot become Lord of the Luminaries and we’re the only ones that can stop him.
