A Dirty Wedding Night (Dirty 2.5) by Jaine Diamond





Blurb:
It wouldn’t be a rock star wedding without a whole lot of s*x…

It’s been one hell of a night at Cathedral Cove Resort. Love and lust are in the air, and rock star Jesse Mayes is just about to drag his bride, Katie, back to their luxurious cabin to celebrate in private.

But the newlyweds aren’t the only ones in the mood…

After all, sexy “wild card” Roni just disappeared into the dark with two hot, naked rock stars.

And Dirty's lead singer, Zane, just took off—also naked—into the woods, with the band's assistant manager, Maggie.

And what ever happened to that tall, dark and mysterious best man, Jude?

And where the heck is the groom’s poor ex-girlfriend and bandmate, Elle?

In this steamy must-read story collection, find out what happens (not always what you’d think!) when your favorite Dirty characters vanish into the night after the rock star wedding event of the year.

Review:
This book is a set of 4 novellas that take all place the night of Jesse and Katie’s wedding. I recommend reading the previous books in the series before starting this book.

Dirty Vow
This short story is told from Jesse’s POV and I love getting his views on the wedding night. I found myself laughing at his hilarious “special vows”. Dirty Vow was absolutely entertaining and I loved getting to see a little bit more into Katie and Jesse’s relationship.

Dirty Secret
I would highly recommended reading “Dirty Like Us” (0.5) to prevent spoilers. You can get this book for free by signing up for Jaine Diamond’s news letter. This is the story of lead singer, Zane, and his manager, Maggie. I have always been curious about womanizer Zane and I love seeing how wild he is for Maggie. I loved Dirty Like Us and I have been anxiously awaiting for the time when they will get their own book. This short story, is just enough to tie me over until that happens. The sexual chemistry between them is hot. You get a dual POV during this novella, which I think really makes the storyline more enjoyable than if it was just done from Maggie’s POV

Dirty Lie
This one I wasn’t so sure I would be interested in as it is about a minor character from “Dirty Like Brody” - Jessa’s friend, Roni. I actually didn’t like her in that book. She seemed pretty slutty with no care in the world other than sleeping with one (or doubling down with two) rockstars. However, in this book, I see her in a whole new light. You learn that maybe she really isn’t as much as a “Wild Card” as everyone thinks she is. You learn who her real love interest is in this novella and I am hoping that maybe there will be a spin off and she’ll get another novella. Like “Dirty Secret”, you get a dual POV.

Dirty Deal
From the previous books, we learn that Elle is the base player for Dirty and was in a relationship with Jesse (who marries Katie). Jaine does a great job showing range of feelings that occur with unrequited love. You also get a more in depth view of Ash, who after Zane, is probably one of my favorite characters. I really enjoyed this novella because both characters, Ellie and Ash, were not big characters in the other books. I enjoyed getting to learn more about them and I am hoping to read a full book about them.

Overall, I loved Dirty Wedding Night - I like how it is 4 short stories that address some of my favorite characters as well as develop some of the more minor characters. It is packed with humor (who doesn’t love that) with the banter between Jesse and Katie, but also there is some snippets of angst. Each short story has hot, steamy scenes between the characters, but they are not over the top raunchy. The only thing I wish is that we got a little more time with Dylan. I would love to hear the drummer’s story. I received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
