Down and Dirty

Release Day: March 10, 2020 

From New York Times bestseller Kendall Ryan comes a delicious new standalone romance featuring an accidental Vegas wedding and a totally perfect alpha hero.

Remember that time you accidentally woke up in Vegas married to your hot younger guy friend?

That’s basically my life right now.

Mistakes we made, okay?

He’s too young for me. Twenty-three to my thirty.And he’s saving himself for the right girl.

Yup. Apparently I’ve married the last alpha-male virgin on the planet. And my stubborn, oddly traditional, new husband doesn’t want a divorce.

He wants me.

Complicated doesn’t even begin to cover it.

If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart 
women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series of athlete romances 
is perfect for you!

“He tastes like red wine and bad decisions, and although I haven’t had a sip of alcohol since that night, one taste of him and I feel instantly drunk.” 

Down and Dirty is the 5th book in the Hot Jocks Series, but can be read as a stand-alone novel. Down and Dirty follows the story of Aubree and Landon. Aubree and Landon are total opposites and their lives have them headed in two completely different directions, but one drunken night in Las Vegas is about to turn their worlds upside down…

Aubree and Landon are two characters that just make you fall instantly for them. Aubree is a fantastic friend, but doesn’t have time for relationships. She’s smart, sassy and completely independent. And then we have Landon. Landon is the younger man, who is on top of his game. He too has reservations when it comes to love and relationships. When you look at all of these facts, these two characters shouldn’t work. They are complete opposites, but you know what they say, opposites attract. And the chemistry between these two burns hotter than ever.

For me, Landon & Aubree’s story takes the cake. I am a huge sucker for these accidental/drunken mistake wedding stories. I mean these types of stories are just so much fun and Kendall Ryan totally knocked it out of the park with Down and Dirty. I was hooked on Landon and Aubree from their very first encounter. The more I read, the more invested I became. I devoured this book in just under 3 hours. That’s right under 3 hours. If that’s not an indication of how much I enjoyed this story, than I don’t know what is? There was just something about Landon and Aubree. I was head over heels in love with the two of them and loved watching them trying to navigate their way to a happy ending. I loved their will they/won’t they moments. Landon was such a sweet guy. He was everything I could possibly want from a book boyfriend. He had me swooning one moment, and breathless in the next. He gave Aubree a run for her money and I just couldn’t wait to see how it would all play out in the end.

Down and Dirty was a fantastic read from beginning to end. It was smartly written and entertaining. I loved the characters and couldn’t stop myself from devouring their story. I thought this story had just the right amount of humor, steam, angst and drama. Down and Dirty hit all the marks for me and is an instant favorite!
