Review: Dirty Rich One Night Stand - Lisa Renee Jones

Dirty Rich One Night Stand
by Lisa Renee Jones
GENRE: Contemporary Steamy Romance
RELEASE DATE: October 18, 2017

That's all it was supposed to be. Her. Him. Pleasure. And then a fast goodbye. He's a stranger. And yet, he's not. She knows him even though he doesn’t know her.
He's the powerful attorney, now world-renowned after coming off the trial of a century which was publicized across the country. And I'm one of the reporters that sat in his courtroom.
I watched him, studied him, got to know him from afar which isn't hard since I know his exact brand of confidence, arrogance, and wealth. I know his type. I've dated his type. Which is why when I happen to come face to face with him, when sparks fly and heat simmers between us, I know what happens if I say "yes" to Reese Summer.
I know he'll taste like sin and sex, even before he kisses me.
I know he'll feel like pleasure and passion, even before he touches me.
I know he'll demand more than I wants to give, and yet, because I dare to give myself to him, the result will be deliciously hot.
I know that I will not leave his bed without being utterly, completely sated.
And I know that I will leave the next morning anyway.
And so, I do.
And so, he follows.
And as chase begins my question becomes: Is Reese Summer THE one or is he really just a dirty, arrogant lie that should have stayed a one night stand?
5 Stars
It all started in a coffee shop, when the story about Mr. Hotness made her forget that she was waiting to be called up next and that arrogant, handsome man attempted to cut in line. Only two trained lawyers would have a battle of wits over who should be up next to order a coffee, but it sparks something between them. When Cat discovers the attorney she is reporting about in her column is the one and only arrogant, handsome man otherwise known as Reese "Mr. Hotness" Summer she has to forget all the naughty ideas she had about him. He's no longer the guy from the coffee shop, he's her job.
Reese Summer doesn't do feelings, but when the beautiful blonde tugged on his arm that first day he knew he had to have her in any way he could. Reporter or not, there's something there, and he accepts the challenge to become more than her job and more than just one night.

"He irritates me, and the only way you deal with a man like him is naked for one night, which you end with a pretty little orgasmic goodbye, and that is all."

Lisa Renee Jones hit it out of the ball park with Dirty Rich One Night Stand, this book was IMPOSSIBLE to put down. I loved the sassy heroine and was head over heels for not-quite-alpha Reese. They're the kind of duo that is just meant to be, there's no denying it from the moment they meet. Like always, LRJ brings the book to life, I could picture the courtroom and coffee shop and physically feel the chemistry flowing between Cat and Reese. It's not all serious lawyer talk over coffees though, Cat is mouthy and has an attitude; her role as reporter makes everything a bit muddled when Reese, a hot shot attorney, finds himself lusting after her. On top of that, LRJ actually writes about the trial and there's a reason why I'm a fan of her for that, I love true crime. I was just as invested in the case as I was in Cat and Reese's affair.

"Situation. There's a way to describe what's happening between me and that man."

I loved this book, SO MUCH, it is by far my favorite standalone from LRJ even with it's length. That's right, Dirty Rich One Night Stand is a long book, 20% in and I hadn't gotten to the real meat of the story, but it's worth the time, I promise. There are a lot of layers to the characters and there is even more dialogue between them to get through those layers, but it does make the sex scenes hotter and more meaningful. We also get glimpses of the Walker gang, which is exciting for readers who recognize them and poses just a couple problems for those who haven't had a chance to just yet. There are references to Royce Walker's story with his wife, Lauren, but they are small and easy to look over if readers have yet to read Deep Under. Additionally, don't let the title fool you, the one night stand these two share is a bit naughty and a lot rich, but the book is not as cheap as the title suggests.

"Please. And I repeat-please to everything."

Dirty Rich One Night Stand reads like a game of cat and mouse, fitting with the heroine's name perfectly. Cat and Reese are similar in so many ways, but neither see those similarities at first. Like most insta-love stories, Cat and Reese have an attraction that makes everything around them disappear, except LRJ finds a way to keep the story moving and in a way that isn't as insta-love as you might expect. Cat's a runner, Reese is new to the chase, and the feelings between them aren't recognized for what they are until the very end. I really enjoyed the crime and lawyer portions of this novel, LRJ knows how to write true business savvy romance with just the right amount of detail and suspense. Ultimately, we all want that happily ever after and Lisa Renee Jones delivers with a bang.
