My Dirty Detour
by Grace Risata
A dominant leader flees the mafia, looking for a fresh start in a small town. He put all his effort into starting a business and resigned himself to a life without love.
A neurotic germaphobe lives vicariously through the books she reads, preferring to play it safe in real life and hide behind her sarcastic remarks.
“I am NOT that neurotic! I just have germ issues and I tend to over-analyze things. Sure, I second guess myself all the time and have a tendency to freak out over the small stuff. I’ll admit that I do ask a lot of “what if…?” questions. Fine. I’m neurotic.”
One fateful day, the simple act of taking a wrong turn leads Violet right into Rocky’s life and completely turns it upside down. Accustomed to his orders being obeyed immediately and without question, Rocky doesn’t appreciate Violet challenging his authority at every opportunity.
“I don’t like being told what to do. Especially when some arrogant tough guy thinks he can boss me around. I might have argued with him just to keep him close. He smelled like heaven. Although with a body like his, I knew he was no angel.
Violet charmed her way into his heart with her quick wit and stubbornness, causing Rocky to fail at his many attempts to resist her.
“He’d never met anyone like me before. I trash talk, curse like a sailor, and pretty much say whatever’s on my mind. Life is too short to pretend to be something that you’re not.”
Rocky tries to keep his violent past hidden from Violet, but it suddenly catches up to him and he can no longer deny who he really is. Will Rocky turn his back on the life he built or stay and fight for what’s his? When Violet is faced with situations that rival anything she’s merely read about, will she be able to face her fears and work together with Rocky or will the truth tear them apart?
“It’s one hell of a wild ride! Take a look inside the first few pages and I’ll tell you all about it.”
Follow the journey of Rocky and Violet as they take a dirty detour…
Please note: As is often the case after “Boy Meets Girl” but before “Happily Ever After,” Steamy Bedroom Scenes will occur. Well….some of the steamy scenes actually take place outside the bedroom. You’ll have to read the book to find out more!
This is a full length, stand-alone novel with no cliffhangers.
There are times as a reader\ blogger that I get lucky and a book comes my way that really stays with me. My Dirty Detour threw me into this romantic comedy that consist of a group of hot men who are best friends and one super model looking woman that left the mafia behind them and wanted a new life. What they never expected was to have Violet, a librarian looking woman with no filter and funny as can be who takes a detour that leads her straight to them.
Rocky was the mafia's top man, enforcer as he was known. After a called off engagement that he never wanted in the first place. Rocky and his best friend leave New York and start a business of their own in a small town. He is later followed by three other friends that have formed a very close knit group. His business could use a little help when it comes to dealing with the paperwork. Rocky thought he left the past behind him but what happens when it comes knocking down his front door?
Violet, is divorced and seems to have her family and friends thinking that she is incapable of finding someone or even trusting her judgement. Violet finds herself taking a wrong turn that leads her to Rocky's Brewery. It definitely was not attraction at first sight on Rocky's behalf. Violet could barely catch her footing when she is confronted by Rocky and his friend Sergio, the gorgeousness that was in front of her was nothing like she has ever seen before.
Violet is offered a job by the two men which leads to plenty of time together with Rocky. What happens when Violet finds out about Rocky's past?
My Dirty Detour is one of the funniest books I have read so far, it's not just funny it has this sexiness that takes a back seat to the humor but it still illuminates heat from not only how sexy the characters are described but through the passion that Rocky and Violet find themselves in. I seriously did not want this story to end, I can't begin to tell you the need I feel for these characters to continue. After reading this story, I am a Grace Risata fan. I am crossing fingers that I get a chance to read more about these characters, they are hard to forget.
