    This is a first rate rock romance that gives you everything you would want; super-hot rocker who does not do girlfriends, a “normal” girl with a chance of a lifetime, a connection between these two that everyone around them sees, and sexual chemistry that is off the charts. Sure, people say this is the “same old story” but this one hit for me and I am an avid rock romance fan. This has become one of my favorites because of the author and ...
  • Nadene (Totally Addicted to Reading)
    Jaine Diamond is a new to me author, nevertheless, I decided to give this book a chance as I was intrigued by the blurb.  I had no idea what I was getting myself into, however, I hoped that my journey into uncharted waters would be a worthwhile one.  That being said I must confess that I enjoyed my journey, despite there being aspects of the story which I had an issue with. This story was told from dual POVs. I enjoy stories that are told from...

    I love me a rocker book and what's better then a sexy rocker book? A sexy rocker book where there's a relationship of convince. That is one of my fav genres to read, a fake relationship build on real passion and chemistry. And not did Jesse and katie have passion and chemistry in spades!! Starting with one of the hottest rock music videos ever. After seeing them light up the charts with their hot music video, Jesse has a proposal for katie that h...

    Jaine Diamond is new to me and I believe she will be taking the romance world by storm. Her writing gives you all the feels and pulls you in. I read books daily and its so great when you find an author that can grab your attention and hold it. Her characters are well developed and the story is intriguing. Yes, it is a rocker romance; and yes, that has been done before, but when it is done well, it doesn't matter. Katie Bloom - I don't know why bu...
  • (Nat) Reading Romances
    Fun and steamy!This is my first time reading a Jaine Diamond book. I love the fake-to-real romance trope, plus, a rockstar? You got me! Dirty Like Me is the first book in the Dirty series. This standalone introduces the band and entourage you’ll get to know more during the next books.The romance between Katie and Jesse was fun, hot and intense. And the dialogue was well done, I felt immersed in the story. I also loved the secondary characters -...
  • Miranda ❤️
    In the beginning, this book was exactly everything I was looking for in a romance. It reminded me a bit of Pretty Woman. Then it turned into something I couldn't connect with no matter how hard I tried. I'd say the writing is good, it just threw me for a loop how the characters personalities seemed to change pretty drastically overnight. Unfortunately, there are just too many amazing books out there just waiting to be picked up so I DNF'd this on...

    5 Electrified Guitars for Dirty Like MeOh my...where to start....I went into this knowing I wouldn't get much, but hoping for some insight on where life had taken Zeke and Maggie since Dirty Like Us had ended, or at least some of Jesse's thoughts on what he overheard. And I will admit Jesse had caught my attention in Zeke and Maggie's book....something about brooding guitar players gets me every time. If you only knew my personal history, you wou...
  • Erin
    ****4.5 stars****This was such a fun, sexy, “I can’t put it down!” read!! I love Jane Diamond’s writing style, and her character development and story-telling are spot on once again! I adored the sweet innocence with a sassy bad girl side we have with Katie, and the sexy rock god Jesse Mayes was so much more than all hormones and no heart. Theirs was an unconventional relationship from the start, but that’s what made it so very fun to d...

    Heroine - Katie BloomHero - Jesse MayesI enjoy these secret fake fiancee and fake girlfriend stories and this one had a great start, but then at 60% it fell apart. The angst part of the story was weak. These was a separation but no real fight and not groveling or anything. I lost my connection to the main characters and really did not care what happened to them. Things were just there. Nothing special or exciting. There was banter in the beginnin...

    Bargain book--same old story
  • ❤Bibi's Book Blog❤
    ❤❤❤❤❤ Hot damn❤❤❤❤❤I've read so many different rock star romance books, that I feel that the theme is a little outplayed. It's always about how a normal girl meets a sinfully hot musician, who's usually giving this normal girl an offer that's way too good to refuse. Somewhere a long the way real feelings will develop, but because they're always both hurting in one way or the other, they won't acknowledge this until it's almost...

    CharactersSurprisingly the author did a wonderful job keeping a balance between bad boy Jesse Mayes who is a cocky rock star and the more sensitive and caring Jesse. The author developed a background that gave the perfect depth to this character. I wanted to dislike him - he normally isn't my type - but I just liked him despite myself. Katie started out as a great character. I liked her all the way up until she flakes near the end. I won't say an...

    Before anything else, I received a digital Advance Reading Copy (ARC) of this book from the author herself in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, Jaine, for your generosity!The author initially sent a three-chapter sample to my email, and right then and there, I just knew I had to keep reading. My interest in reading this novel never waned despite its predictability and limited originality – two things that aren’t necessarily negative p...

    ***I received a free copy to read and review for Wicked Reads ***I have to say I was a little surprised how much I actually liked Dirty Like Me. I hate to say it, but sometimes I have a tendency to judge a book by its cover and I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into. Luckily, I wasn't discouraged by this one because Janie Diamond had me intrigued after just a few pages! Katie, the main character, was likable, fun, and slightly awkward (in a...
  • Kayla Johnson
    I really enjoyed this book, mostly because I’m a sucker for a good romance, but also because the authors writing style made it enjoyable. However, there was a part of the story that kinda threw me for a loop. When Katie hugged Zane the night of her party it was mentioned that he looked at her oddly. The writing to me seemed to insinuate he may have some kind of feelings for her but then it was never mentioned again. I may have just interpreted ...
  • Krystina
    Please!Please let Dirty be an actual band one day! I want to hear the music in this book from Jesse and from Dirty! Lol. Pretty typical romance story with communication issues that cause the drama. Other than that, I did enjoy the story and am looking forward to reading the rest of the series!
  • Pauline
    Firstly this is a bloody fantastic read ! Loved the story and the characters . It's been a while since I read a rock band book and this is up there with some of the best for me . It's also the first I've read from this author but it certainly won't be my last . Can't wait to read more x

    AmazingI love this book i couldnt put it down, i got it yesterday and finished it today. cant wait for dirty like brody!!!!
  • Caitlin
    This book was literally twenty pages away from being five stars, & then the ending happened. Minus two stars for the cheesy, abrupt, perfect conclusion.
  • Kiki
    Super trashy and amazing! 😂❤ Super trashy and amazing! 😂❤️

    I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review.This is a story about a Rock God and the girl next door. Who hasn't feel in love with a rock God and wondered what it would be like to go on tour and be his girlfriend? Yeah, we all have or you haven't found the right Rock God. For me and yes I am telling my age, it was Andy Gibb. I loved him, had the posters on my wall, his records and all the magazines...

But when he finds out that Katie has no idea who he is he is very interested.Katie Bloom is a barista th...

    I am a sucker for Rocker and I have to say that I couldn't have been happier to find this new hidden jem with my buddy Sultan!!What is better than a Cherry Pie.....Well that is an easy answer and it would be Jesse Mayes!! These two crash into one another and from that first glance nothing will be the same. Katie is the shy hot girl next door type and everything that Jesse the sexy rocker has stayed away from. A chance to break from her rut and Ka...

    I received a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked ReadsNew author/series for me and I'm glad to say I'll be reading more from Diamond and the Dirty crew for sure! Jesse is in the highly famous, rock band, Dirty. But he's branched off on his own and put out his first solo project release. Katie is drifting a bit, she's a barista/artist but has been sort of lost since her ex left her at the altar 2 years ago. While dropping in on her bes...

    I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. Living your life is hard enough, but having your every move scrutinized has to be painful. Katie's one brief moment of humiliation has left her feeling wary of having any attention turned her way. Hiding in the shadows and drifting through life the past two years is her way of staying safe, of not being hurt again. After all, if one man will dump you at the alter, surely the...

    4.5/5 Stars!Spoiler Free ReviewWow! I can't even tell you how much I loved this book! Thank you Jaine Diamond for including me in your release!So here is the gist - Katie has a rocky romantic past and it has left her a little jaded. As the book begins, Katie visits her bestie at work and meets rock star Jesse Mayes. He is all hot and broody and oh so sexy. Their first meeting doesn't involve much more than a few sentences, but it leaves a lasting...

    Book: Dirty Like Me (A Dirty Rock star Romance Book 1) Author: Jaine DiamondRating: 4.5 starsReviewer: @emmasromanticreviews17 on FacebookThe word Dirty is quite possibly the most accurate word to describe the rock group that are featured in this book series and my word the first instalment that features their lead guitarist and singer/songwriter Jesse Mayes is deliciously dirty. As the first book in the series it really does do a fine job of get...
