BOOK REVIEW: Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren

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

“I let my eyes travel lower, because—let’s be real—I’d be a fool to not drink in the sight of this man before telling him to go fuck himself.”

Dear Christina Lauren, 

“I crave the edge, the point just before I fall where I know the relief comes and he gives my body everything. But I know he’ll make me wait for it, and the anticipation has me shaking.”

How do you do it? How do you make me love each book more than the last? Witchcraft? Hypnosis? No. I know what it is. The dirty talking. I thought Ansel was good, but he needs to step aside for FINN. Finn has freaking mastered the dirty talk. I know I'll never look at rope the same way again.

“I remember the first moment I knew we would hook up, in Vegas. Drunk, I’d pointed to him and dropped out loud to everyone, Probably gonna fuck him tonight.
To which he’d leaned over and said directly into my ear, That’s sweet. But I like to be the one doing the fucking."

Now to the writing. LOVED. It was refreshing that Finn didn't have to have a trail of broken hearts to make him desirable. And it was so nice to read about Harlow (Whorelow) only to find out she isn't what her nickname makes her out to be. 

“I now know what would go down if the four of us were ever trapped together in a bomb shelter: murder.”

Both families were well developed. Harlow's was heartbreaking but so wonderful at the same time. It made me want to go tacklehug every member of my family. I loved reading about how close Harlow was to her dad. It really brought the warm and fuzzies. And Finn's family! Levi and Colton need their own book, do you hear me Christina&Lauren? Also.. anyone up for a trip to Canada? Maybe for some fishing? Anyone?

“... my second favorite thing to do with guys is watch them get drunk.”

I was so freaking happy to see that we got more of Mia and Ansel (and their extremely loud activities) and we also got to see a lot more of Oliver and Lola. That is one story I'm looking forward to. COMIC BOOKS. Gah. I want it noted that I could have done without seeing stupidPerry's name on any of the beautiful pages though. *grumbles* 

“He could only do rowdy because he felt what I felt: that whip-crack unleashing that comes when you meet the person who frees you.”

It was everything I could have wanted for Finn and Harlow and I absolutely don't know how I'm going to wait until SEPTEMBER2015 for Dark Wild Night. WHAT. 

“The stars could fall, the ocean could take over the land, and I wouldn’t even realize it until long after Finn slows his hips and runs his hand up my leg and along my side, until he reaches my jaw, cupping it and telling me he’s never wanted anything the way he wants me.”
