Dirty Rowdy Thing (Wild Seasons #2) by Christina Lauren

You see, when it comes to potential love interests, guys typically fall into three basic categories: the manwhore, the misunderstood, and the mama’s boy. The manwhore, in my experience, comes in any number of shapes and sizes: dirty rock star, muscled quarterback, even the occasional irresistible hot nerd. Their strength in bed? Generally, dirty talk and endurance, both of which I’m a fan. Sadly, this doesn’t always translate into skill. The misunderstood often takes the shape of an artist, a quiet surfer, or a soulful musician. These boys rarely know what the hell to do, but at least they’re willing to try for hours. The mama’s boy is the easiest to spot. Here in La Jolla, he usually drives his mom’s hand-me-down Lexus and keeps it in pristine condition. This type takes his shoes off as soon as he walks indoors and always maintains eye contact while speaking. In bed, the mama’s boy offers few benefits, but at least they tend to be tidy.

Over the summer Harlow and Finn got married in Vegas… for one night only

They along with their 2 friends (each) all got married in a drunken night gone wrong

Harlow and Finn got an annulment…

“Because he’s horrible?” I lie. She snorts out a laugh. “He’s built like a man who works with his hands, has a sense of humor drier than the Sahara, and the thing that gets him off more than anything in the world is giving you orgasms. What a nightmare .” My voice of reason is always Lola. “You’re a jackass.” “You only say that when I’m being your voice of reason.” “Out of my head, witch. And don’t piss me off,” I tell her. “I’ll buy you underwear one size too small for Christmas and make you hate life.”

But Harlow’s not sure that she has Finn out of her system

I give this book 4.3 out of 5 stars. I really like how this series draws you in with it’s storyline and characters. I like that though there are 6 people who all end up married after a crazy night in Vegas they all have vastly different stories of how their marriage ends up. Harlow is my favorite character in this installation of the series. Harlow is strong and bold and not afraid to say what’s on her mind, but she is also very family oriented and kind. My favorite thing about her has to be that she goes after what she wants, she is a bit naive at times but what she does for others she does out of love for them. Finn is 10 years her senior and a bit closed off. That was really what got on my nerves about him, he would withhold things from people and he would say things that hurt people, he didn’t do it out of malice but that almost made it worst at times. While they do hurt one another at times they are ultimately good for one another and lets just say  they have a lot of fun together… Like the first book in this series this book can be read as a standalone, but it is better when you start at the beginning 😉

Check out my review on the first book in this series!

Sweet Filthy Boy

Sweet Filthy Boy (Wild Seasons Book 1) by Christina Lauren


The day we officially graduate from college is nothing like how it’s depicted in the movies. I throw my cap in the air and it comes down and cracks someone in the forehead. The keynote speaker loses his notes in a gust of wind and decides to wing it, delivering a thoroughly uninspired commencement address on turning mistakes into the building blocks for a brighter tomorrow, complete with awkward stories about his recent divorce. No one on film ever looks like they’re going to die of heatstroke in their polyester gown… I’d pay someone a lot of money to burn all the pictures that were taken of me today.

But it still manages to be perfect.

Because holy shit, we’re done.

Mia and her best friends Harlow and Lola have just graduated college and to celebrate their achievement they go where any self-respecting college graduate with a newfound sense of freedom would…LAS VEGAS.

I don’t do eye contact well. I don’t usually do conversation well, either. In fact, the only muscles I never seemed to really master were the ones required for easy speech. But for some reason-let’s blame the alcohol-and without looking away from the hot man across the bar, my lips readily form the word ‘Hi.’ He says it back, before pulling the corner of his lip between his teeth, and wow, he should do that every day and to every person he meets for the rest of his life. He has a dimple and I reassure myself that it’s just the lighting and shadows playing it up because there’s no way in hell something so simple could possibly be this adorable.

Ansel and his boys Finn and Oliver are on a short vacation in Vegas when he seeing Mia from across the room.

Sparks fly.

Let’s just say that… What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay.

I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars. My favorite character would have to be Ansel with his loving personality (which can get him in trouble) and his dirty mind (and mouth, oh the things he teaches Mia to say in French). At first I didn’t necessarily like Mia, but as I read on and she grew she got better. I didn’t think that I would like their relationship because it was sort of rushed, but I was pleasantly surprised when everything slowed down(in a good way) and they really got to know one another. I didn’t like that so much of their relationship was based on sex, it wasn’t bad but it did over take the storyline at parts. This book can be read as a standalone, but there are other books in the series (about different characters). I also have to say that I’m excited to read the next book in the series because it’s about one of Mia’s best friends Harlow (she made me laugh).
