I love saying those words.
She’s mine, and if she thinks I’m going to let her run without tracking her down and bringing her back to where she belongs—with me—then she’s about to be introduced to a new reality.
Because I’ll fight dirty to give her the happily ever after she deserves.
Dirty Together is the final book in The Dirty Billionaire Trilogy and should be read following Dirty Billionaire and Dirty Pleasures.
Dirty Together is the final installment of the Dirty Billionaire Serial/Novella Trilogy. After so much back and forth in the first two installments, I was ready for everything to be tied up into a HEA in this conclusion.
This one picks up right where Dirty Pleasures left off. Holly has run off from Creighton. Again. And she can't believe she has done it. Well, honey, neither could I. I am just not a fan of serial runners. I can usually forgive it once... but the second time pretty much writes off a character for me. Especially when the heroine in question displays a lack of maturity and consideration as Holly did with her two word notes. Holly turned into a heroine that made me feel old with her repetitive adequacy issues, running off, getting drunk with a cute bad boy, and talking about "going to brown town" which only served to make me think of the huge burger and cheese fries she just ate before said "brown town" activities. Not sexy. Though Holly did redeem herself a bit when she finally grew up and decided to fight for her relationship. From that point on, I had no complaints about her.
Despite it being Holly that messed up this time, it was still Crey that had to go chasing after her and dote on her to "prove" himself. I hated that he had to go to these lengths, but it also made me lose a little respect for him. He was definitely more invested in the relationship than Holly seemed to be. I also hated that everyone seemed to blame Creighton for Holly's immature behavior that was causing the relationship problems. That aside, I was happy that we finally got some of Crey's back story. He had a heartwrenching childhood that tugged at the emotional strings. From Creighton's persona at the beginning of the series, he has done a complete 180 in the way he thinks of women and relationships. He has become a dirty domineering man that any girl would be proud to drag down the aisle.
I would have liked a little more detail on the Annika situation. I was hoping for an explanation as to why Crey became an unemotional manwhore, and thought it would come with the revelation of the that relationship. I just can't stand catty bitches like Annika, so I would have loved to see her get a visit from the ol' karma train.
The drama between Crey and his uncle comes to a head and I was enjoying the plot conflict that involved the shareholder derivative lawsuit and all the legal aspects. But that could just be the attorney in me. Though the plot twist that ensued threw me out of the story and didn't quite fit in with the storyline. I can't say it wasn't interesting though - and it was certainly unexpected.
Overall - I would rate the series as a whole at 3.5 stars. If I would read all three installments one after the other, it would probably have been rated higher. That is my usual problem with serials, by reading an unfinished story in parts, it makes me focus more on the aspects I didn't like than being able to remember the parts that I did.
I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
