Review: Dirty Sexy Bastard by Laurelin Paige (Dirty Games #0.5)


Who doesn't love a book freebie that you would have been willing to pay money for had it been for sale? Laurelin Paige gifts her readers with yet another enticing--and very free!--prequel novella. Dirty Sexy Bastard is the prequel in the Dirty Games series, although it was released after the first full-length novel, Dirty Sexy Player, and provides readers with a basic idea of what led up to the arranged marriage between twenty-four-year-old Elizabeth Dyson and twenty-eight-year-old Weston King. Both are carrying the burden of being the children of fathers who could have done better and now, they're dealing with the consequences of their respective fathers' decisions. Elizabeth wants what is rightly hers but in order to become the CEO of Dyson Media, her father's will dictates that she needs to either wait till she's twenty-nine or get married. The solution is offered up by none other than Donovan Kincaid.

I appreciated this longer and deeper look into what was going on in both Elizabeth's and Weston's heads before the plan for them to marry out of convenience was put before them, although this really did feel more like Elizabeth's part of the story to tell, and rightly so, because that caveat in her late father's will was what got the proverbial ball rolling. While I don't think it's absolutely necessary to read this prequel novella in order to fully enjoy and understand the two full-length novels that follow--I had already read book one before reading this prequel--it does delve more into what went on prior to the two main characters in the series actually meeting and then later on tying the knot. This is a freebie and good introduction to the series. Four stars for Dirty Sexy Bastard. ♥
