Contemporary Romance, New Adult
From the New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player, Book Two of the brand-new Wild Seasons series that started with Sweet Filthy Boy—a story of friends, love, and lust.
Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don't even like each other...which would explain why their marriage lasted only twelve hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she's too similar to the rugged fisherman—or just what he needs.

Harlow & Finn get their story in DIRTY ROWDY THING, and it had me in stitches! After reading, and thoroughly loving Sweet Filthy Boy, I jumped at the chance to review this second book in the Wild Seasons series. Not only do we get more of Ansel and Mia, as well as the whole Las Vegas gang, but we also get a love story with a totally different flavor. Whereas Ansel's and Mia's story was an example of love at first sight, Harlow and Finn start their story with a divorce (following a quickie Las Vegas marriage of course!).
I loved the whole hot, blue-collar fisherman tries a casual, dirty fling with the Hollywood princess, and end up with way more than they bargained for angle! I also admire the Christina Lauren duo writing team for inserting the very real and difficult issue of breast cancer into their story. We often forget that breast cancer affects the entire family, not just the victim, and DIRTY ROWDY THING thoughtfully brings this sensitive issue to the forefront.
DIRTY ROWDY THING commences where Sweet Filthy Boy leaves off. Harlow is back in California, and Finn in Canada. Harlow, the daughter of a famous Hollywood actress and Hollywood big wig, is leading a somewhat carefree life working 12 hours a week as an intern for a studio, and going from man to man having fun without ever really getting serious about any one guy. Finn, on the other hand, along with his brothers, is pretty much at the other end of the spectrum. For years, he been running, along with his brothers, the family fishing business and has only had a handful of relationships.
Although they have had at least one rendezvous since their inauspicious beginning in Las Vegas, given their totally different lives, it's no surprise that while each is incredibly attracted to the other, neither expects more than a little wild, frisky fun when their paths do cross (which is bound to happen occasionally given their Mia/Ansel link). Then circumstances in both their lives take a rather quick deteriorating turn and, at equally vulnerable points in their lives, they find rather unexpectedly that their feelings for one another are starting to change. But given their two completely different natures, could there possibly be a HEA in store for this couple?
Equal parts funny and incredibly sexy, I thoroughly enjoyed DIRTY ROWDY THING. Like Sweet Filthy Boy, the Christina Lauren team finds some rather creative ways to amp up the heat level of this read by throwing in some creative kink along with the incredibly, lascivious dirty talk. Moreover, I enjoyed the joining of this rather unconventional couple and how they seemed to bring out the best in each other.
I can't wait for the next book in the Wild Seasons series, Dark Wild Night, which will detail Lola's and Oliver's story and is scheduled to be released in September 2015!
