Release Blitz: Dangerous Exes by Rachel Van Dyken


Isla made one teeny little mistake. Now she and her PI company, Dirty Exes, are being targeted by one seriously angry and furiously sexy ex-quarterback. Jessie freakin’ Beckett. But there’s no way some NFL superhunk is going to take her business away. If only he didn’t make her so hot—and bothered.
Jessie wants payback for a ruined reputation. His plan? Top secret. His hard-to-hide arousal for Isla? Not so much. Especially when they let down their guards and sneak a kiss. Like any juicy scandal, it goes so viral, so fast, that only a good lie can combat the bad press. Mortal enemies in a fling? No way. Um…this is love!
Actually…could it be?
Isla’s not faking it. Jessie can’t. As the game of let’s pretend gets real, Jessie forgets all about revenge. That’s the problem. His plan is already out of his control. Now it could undo everything they’ve been trying to build. Coming clean may be the only thing that can save it.

Review by Lisa Kane

Dangerous Exes is the second in the Dirty Liars series. I loved Blaire and Colin's story in Dirty Exes and kept wondering if Jessie Beckett, hot ex-quarterback and former love of Blaire's would get together with Blaire's partner in crime, Isla. In the first book, I wasn't sure if I wanted Blaire and Jessie to get back together or if I wanted her with Colin. Jessie had a lot to answer for, but I felt like he redeemed himself. By the end I didn't think he deserved to get Blaire back-he burnt that bridge. He needed to start with someone new.

If you aren't familiar with what kind of work Blaire and Isla do-well they investigate cheating partners.

I'm the Beyonce of catching cheaters with their pants down.

Jessie's wife at the time hired them to get some dirt on him and to prove he was cheating on her. When all the while she was the cheater. But in the process, Jessie's reputation got dragged in the mud and he's still dealing with the fall out. He blames Isla for all his PR problems. He's determined that she's going to pay for all the trouble she's caused him. I think it's a case of the man doth protest too much...he took a liking to this feisty little chick and when it turned out she created more problems for him, he felt betrayed.

I glared. Jessie freaking Beckett.
Ex-client of Dirty Exes, the PI company my best friend and I built from the ground up.
Ex-pain in my ass. 

All the time Jessie is following Isla around, stalking her, plotting her downfall is more time spent with her. The woman he wants, whether he admits it or not.

Isla's been burnt herself. She started this whole business with Blaire after her she caught her man cheating on her more than once. Trust isn't something that's going to come easily. Especially if the man in question is out for revenge. But hormones will be hormones.

And I wondered if that's what the other half of the world felt like.
The happy ones.
The ones in relationships.
Because I'd never experienced sex in that way before. 
With a man who once promised to destroy me. 

I love their flirty little texts as their walls come atumblin' down.

Me: Why would you send me a car?
Jessie: So you don't have to walk or drive or do anything except sit and think about all the wild sex we're going to have tonight. 

But you just know there's gonna be a little drama. They are on shaky pegs at best and insecurities and their rocky pasts are going to come creeping up into the present.

There's a little wisdom in this story that helps to remind me why forgiveness is sometimes really necessary.

"The thing about forgiveness, Isla, that nobody remembers in the midst of pain and betrayal, is that we do it for ourselves-not for them. You're only punishing yourself. He knows you're angry, believe me, but right now it's hurting you more than it's hurting him." 

Sometimes it's important to forgive and move on. Leave the other person in your rear view mirror. But sometimes we forgive so we can keep on moving along on our journey with that other person.

She tasted like my forever. 

The person made for me.
