The New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful BastardBeautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player starts a brand new story of friends, love, and lust with Book Two of the Wild Seasons series.
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.

 Summary

One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him.


But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to France for the summer and just…play.


When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away









Bio / Social Media

Lauren Billings (but everyone calls her Lo) has a Ph.D. in neuroscience and before she made writing her full-time job, would spend her days doing nerdy research-type things wearing a lab coat and goggles. She is silly Mommy to two littles, wife to one mountain biking homebrewing scientist, bestie to a shoe-stealer, and an unabashed lover of YA and romance.
Christina Hobbs (but you’ll always hear Lo call her PQ) used to spend her days in a junior high counseling office surrounded by teenagers. Married to the cutest boy in school, she has a thirteen year old daughter, is an unapologetic lover of boy bands and glitter, and also likes to steal Lo’s shoes.

REVIEW

Dirty Rowdy Thing (Wild Seasons, #2)Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really liked this book, even more than I was expecting I would. I super adore getting to know all the friends more and more. I appreciate how different each couple is.

Ansel from the first book still pops up some, and I still love him. He’s so outgoing and majorly lovable and silly.
Finn is more reserved. I like the strong, silent type as well. I definitely respect a man who works hard for a living. Finn is a decision maker and provider. Of course I fell for him too. Finn also comes with special bedroom tricks.

“Finn is sweet, and funny and stoic in this way that is totally foreign to me but I actually really appreciate, coming from the Family That Discusses Everything. And he’s hot. Dear Lord, you guys. Finn in bed is no joke. And he’s not a whiny La Jolla mama’s boy, he’s a man who was raised to get shit done, and not cry over hangnails. Finn could break your vagina and be just handy enough to put it back together.”

As far as female leads go, I love Harlow. She is so refreshing. She’s not a wimp or a badass on a mission. She real and honest and open. I think I have a lady crush, seriously. It’s not rare at all for me to have the hots for the male lead, but falling for the chick is otherworldly.

“Shh, Poodle. I’m having a Johnny Castle, Dirty Dancing moment right now.”
“Is this a good thing or a bad thing?” he asks, bending to lick up my neck.
“I carried a watermelon.”
He pulls back and looks at me before ducking to sniff my breath. “How drunk are you?”
“For the love of God, man, I’m not drunk. Get naked or put that mouth between my legs.”

The relationship between these two is awesome for the most part. They usually just say what they mean. Not much beating around the bush or miscommunication. They are both going through their own hard times which causes some issues, but there is no denying the pull they have to each other.

Of course, as usual, I have to give credit to any Harry Potter reference.

“That’s because Ansel’s over there trying to suck your soul out through your mouth like some sort of Dementor.”

There is some drama, but I’m grateful to have characters behave mostly maturely. Great book, and I’m looking forward to more from this series.
