Dirty News (Dirty Network, #1)
One job, two opponents, and one hell of an attraction between them… Why’d he have to be so manly, rugged, and sexy? Why’d there have to be that stupid no dating rule within the staff at WOLF? And why couldn’t I turn my hormones off and be the professional I needed to be? I knew the answer to the last question. How could anyone turn off something so hot? When he touched me, it left my flesh sizzling. When our lips met for the first time, I knew I was done for. He had me right from the start. Took me higher than I knew was possible. My body was his, at his mercy, and he gave none. But our jobs might cost us the passion we’d found. Would we really let that happen? This book is a full-length standalone novel with a guaranteed HEA, no cliffhanger and plenty of steam. Exclusive bonus content included.

    I enjoyed Michelle Love’s books. Dirty News was different and an overall good story. I loved the primary and secondary characters. The steam factor was on high with chemistry overflowing. Great quick steamy read. My only real complaint is sometimes the writing feels formal or a bit still, especially during some of the dialogue. Overall I’d recommend and say get ready for a sexy fun ride.I received an arc copy and this is my voluntary, true, and honest opinion.

    It was a nice sweet book but, wasn’t deep. Duke & Lila worked together at Wolf news. It was very similar to any station except, it had a no harassmentPolicy. Where the men and women couldn’t be anymore then friends. Working this policy out was their job to solve.

I love that Michelle brings to attention the subject of sexual harassment in the work place and takes it a step further to show the difference between harassment and consensual. This story is about Lila Banks, a freshly graduated journalism major from New Mexico and Duke Cofield retired linebacker for the NY Jets interviewing at the new on the edge TV station WOLF in New York City. After interviews Lila is the nightly newscaster and Duke is the nightly sportscaster but the owner Artimus Wolfe is undecided about the morning anchor position putting Lila and Duke in competition for the job. Each has their own reason for wanting the job and not backing down. Competition is not the only thing between Lila and Duke, the attraction between them is a no no and a definite distraction. When the owner announced he is enforcing a strict no fraternization policy within the whole company everyone is stunned. But what happens when you tell someone they can't have what they want...they want it even more and will take steps to get it. One taste, one touch isn't enough for these hungry consenting adults, but if they are found out they will lose their job and possibly each other in the end. Can they convince their boss to give in a little on his policy while still making people feel safe at work and if not what will Duke do if he can't have the woman he loves??? This story is flawlessly written and keep your attention through to the end and beyond to the bonus stories. I love the his/her POV, no cheating, no cliffhanger and that Duke and Lila get their HEA. A must read so one click now and enjoy. Can't wait for more Michelle Love, she is an automatic one click author for me.I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this bookThank You Michelle Love for an awesome read!!!

    What happens when a young, idealistic college grad travels across the country to land her dream job in NYC, finds herself in competition for said job with a too-sexy-for-morning-news former NY Jets football star, and their stubborn new boss says relationships at work are taboo? Yep. The sparks fly like roman candles on New Year’s Eve.Duke and Lila may have a slight age difference, but that doesn’t matter a bit once they meet. Their chemistry is elemental and instantaneous.

Yep. The sparks fly like roman candles on New Year’s Eve.Duke and Lila may have a slight age difference, but that doesn’t matter a bit once they meet. Their chemistry is elemental and instantaneous. But finding out that they’re in competition for the same position at the new broadcasting station, and that their new boss has a zero tolerance policy toward any form of workplace romance has them acting like crazy highschoolers under the bleachers. None of the options look good here. Except the sex—which is rockin’. But that will get them both fired.The characters are enjoyable and fun, with enough depth that you can easily fall into their world and want them to come out of this on top…so to speak. I loved the originality and the timeliness of the storyline, focusing on harassment and sexual issues within the workplace without losing the entertainment factor of the story. In short: very nicely done.Since Duke and Lila’s attraction is so steamy, their love scenes are not going to be a simple fade to black sort of arrangement; they’re hot. They’re hose-me-down, I-think-I’m-having-heatstroke hot. Interestingly, there is almost no adult language in the novel as far as curse words go. Those love scenes, well, if you don’t use adult language for those it can make you sound like a 5 year old sometimes, and Ms. Love is too good an author for that. So if you’re up for it, relax, fire up your e-reader, and enjoy!

It is well written and every now and then the author would throw in a line or two that had me laughing out loud. I liked that at twenty-two Lila was very mature for her age as was Duke at thirty-two. He had more life experience than Lila but she learned fast when it came to her getting the anchor job. The competition was fierce and the attraction fiercer. The characters in the book were well developed and had great personalities. I liked Nina as Lila's first friend in New York City. She proved to be an excellent friend with connections that helped her impress the boss. You would think that Duke would have an in to the Good Ole Boys Network but that was not the case. Even though he had been the wide receiver for the NY Jets. Artimus Wolfe the owner was indeed a fair and honest boss. Duke had no such advantage and soon realized that Lila was a formidable foe. Did Lila and Duke want to be foes or was there something else life had planned for them? An excellent book. I highly recommend it.

Both want the job badly but the chemistry between them is too hot to deny. Unfortunately the owner has instituted a strict no fraternization policy for all employees.

    Really good read. They have this no relationship policy at where they work. But when you have an attraction to someone that big you can't help yourself and when he returns it then the trouble starts. It gets to be a sticky situation from there. It is exciting, fun, emotional, suspenseful and so much more. I recommend it. I was given a review copy by ebook itch and voluntarily review it.
