He’s dangerous. He’s a killer. He’ll wipe out anything and anyone in his path. “What are you going to do to me now that you’re here?”“This,” he says, and before I realize his intention, his mouth closes down on mine, a deep slide of his tongue that I feel from my head to my toes, and I try to resist. I do, but he tastes like the only man I’ve ever loved. He feels like the only man I’ve ever loved. He smells like the man I thought I’d marry. He’s the only safe place I’ve known my entire life. For just a moment, or two, or ten, I need him to be that man. I sink into the kiss, and I kiss him with all that I am and will ever be, and it’s such a passionate kiss, such a perfect kiss, the kind that fills up every empty place I’ve ever known and overflows with this man. “Do you feel us now?” he asks, tearing his mouth from mine. “Of course, I do,” I whisper. “Because you made me love you. I can’t just turn that off. I want this, and us, to be real, but it’s not.”“We are what’s real. I’m going to make you feel that.” And then he’s kissing me again, and I know I’m a crazy person, but I don’t fight him. If he’s going to kill me, he’s going to kill me. There’s no fighting him, but fear isn’t what I feel. I’ve been so alone without him. And I’m still so in love with him. If I’m going to die, at least I want to live in the fantasy of this man loving me one more time. Just that thought has me pressing my hands under his shirt to feel his hot, hard muscle beneath my palms. He pulls his shirt over his head, and then he’s pulling jacket and shirt off before our mouths collide again, and he’s taking us down on the mattress. We’re side by side, facing each other, and he catches my leg with his. “I missed the hell out of you, woman,” he says, his voice low, gravelly, guttural. Like he means it. I feel him and us in that moment. It feels real, but it always did. We were the most real thing I have known in my life, and that’s terrifying. He’s terrifying, but as his mouth closes down on mine, the possessive, hungry taste of him touching my tongue, I remind myself I’ve decided to live the fantasy one last time. I need him.I want him.I hate him.I love him. He presses me to my back and never stops kissing me. His hand pushes down my bra, his fingers teasing one of my nipples. I moan, and there is a vibrating sound from somewhere. “Fuck,” he murmurs. “That’s our warning, baby.” “Warning? What does that mean?”“I’ll make this all up to you, Ashley. I promise. I promise, baby. I will make it up to you, but right now, I need to protect you.”

Oh my goodness. The first thing I have to say is this story is off the charts on the heat factor. The connection and the depth of feelings between the two, good and bad, are what makes this book.The story is heavier on the romance and not as heavy on the suspense portion we normally get from Ms. Jones. And personally I have no issue with that since the passion and the sexiness is amazing.Reid is also amazing and I really love how he supported, protected, and took care of Carrie. While he can be abrupt and overbearing, he can also be giving, tender, and kind. Hot!This book is an obsession. Actually the whole series is an obsession and not one that I’m willing to give up anytime soon. The author is one of my favorites and I can’t read to wait to read the next in the series.

Reid happened to be the one behind the hostile takeover of her company and became her enemy by default. While everything in her told her to fight him, to turn against him, to not trust him, she couldn't help herself and pretty soon Reid became the only person she could trust.Reid was arrogant, dominant, and his very presence could fill a room. He didn't do attachments and he sure as hell didn't do feelings. But he quickly found out that when it came to Carrie, all of his shall nots quickly became his shalls. He couldn't stay away from her or treat their arrangement as strictly business. Their intimacy continued to grow and this strong, alpha hero began to change right before my eyes. He was still just as strong and still just as alpha, but he also opened up his heart to the love that was blossoming between them.This couple had their share of struggles. They not only had to fight each other and their growing attraction, but their fathers are bitter enemies. While trying to build trust between them, to work as a team, Reid was keeping one massive secret from Carrie, one that could rip apart their delicate love before they could even enjoy it. Although this story could be read as a standalone, I can't wait to get my hands on the next book in the series, Dirty Rich Betrayal, to see if I could get more of them together!Release: August 22, 2018 | Genre: Contemporary Romance | Dual POV - 1st person | Heat: 3.5 | Standalone - Dirty Rich #3☆.。.:* ARC provided for an honest review .。.:*☆Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Tumblr

Carrie West is willing to do anything to get Reid Maxwell's attention after finding out his family firm has done a hostile takeover of her fathers company. Boy did she get his attention. Reid is in new territory where Carrie is concerned. He's used to satisfying his attractions and moving on, but Carrie just won't let that happen. The problem is there is a debt between both families that she doesn't know about. If she learns Talk about a battle of wills! Enemies to lovers has never been so apt.

Reid is in new territory where Carrie is concerned. He's used to satisfying his attractions and moving on, but Carrie just won't let that happen. The problem is there is a debt between both families that she doesn't know about. If she learns it, Reid will have no choice but to let her go.The chemistry between these two was crazy addictive. I almost didn't want them to get past the anger, it was so hot. Once Reese finally convinces Carrie he's not her enemy, I liked them together just as much as their fighting. You don't know the details of the debt for most of the book. Reid truly believes Carrie won't want him after she finds out. I was curious how he was going to overcome it even when I didn't know what it was. The hatred between both their fathers and how much they were against Reid and Carrie being together had me just as curious. I like that the author kept me guessing despite being worried about not liking the revelation. This ends on a happily for now, but there is more to tell. The second half of their story will be out January 2nd.

    This was a wonderful enemies to lovers, boss/employee romance that solidified that this author really knows how to check my boxes for perfect heroes. There was so much antagonism between this couple laced with a sizzling chemistry my kindle threatened to combust. With plenty of push and pull along with a hostile takeover of both the financial and sexual kind I was completely engrossed in this story.

There was so much antagonism between this couple laced with a sizzling chemistry my kindle threatened to combust. With plenty of push and pull along with a hostile takeover of both the financial and sexual kind I was completely engrossed in this story. It’s a lengthy book and yet I refused to put it down and actually set my phone on “talk back” so I could read/listen when I was forced to get up from my sofa. Carrie was strong and independent but had made a mistake years ago that made her doubt her full capabilities in business. Reid has executed a hostile takeover of her father’s company and now refuses to take any of her calls. In an effort to prove that he is still human, she succeeds in tricking him to face her and she does so in freaking awesome style! Reid is in instant lust with the woman in the emerald dress and falls easily into her trap only then concocting new plans for her father’s company. He’s going to get the girl for the night and then he’s going to set this company to rights. I loved how Carries stood up to Reid at every turn. Despite being intimidated by him at times, she was feisty and confident when squaring off with him, never allowing him to see her sweat. While she was a tough heroine, she was not hard core. She had a softer side to her and that contradiction only ensnared Reid more.Reid was an incredible alpha-hole. Everyone knows he’s a complete jerk and he uses it to his advantage. And yet the more time he spends with Carrie the more we see another side to him. His point of view was perfect in allowing the reader to understand his thought processes. I do love the taming of an alpha-hole and Carrie brought this one to his knees in stunning fashion. This story is filled with twists and turns and so many secrets!!! Trust is a major issue between this couple and their struggle with it ratcheted up the angst level for me. Nevertheless, this couple’s dynamic was perfection! They lit up the page with both their hate, their struggles, their passion and their love. There was nothing in this story I didn’t enjoy. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.Dual POVSafe (view spoiler)[no ow/om drama; H isn’t really made out to be a womanizer but he does acknowledge that he’s a one night type of guy who never spends the night or has ow come to his home (hide spoiler)]Triggers (view spoiler)[infidelity with other characters but not between H/h (hide spoiler)]

There were some things I really enjoyed and some things I did not. The Good: Reid and Carrie are good MCs. I liked them. I wanted them to be together. Their chemistry and steamy times were hot AF. Long story short, I connected to them and was invested in them. The plot was busy, but it all kept me intrigued. I think all of 3 StarsGrrrr. Honestly, once I got closer and closer to the end, I did not now exactly how much I liked/disliked this or what I would rate it. I will default this to 3 stars. There were some things I really enjoyed and some things I did not. The Good: Reid and Carrie are good MCs. I liked them. I wanted them to be together. Their chemistry and steamy times were hot AF. Long story short, I connected to them and was invested in them. The plot was busy, but it all kept me intrigued. I think all of it played well into each other and had me turning that page to get to the end. The Not-So-Good: I had two issues with this. 1 - Carrie. I know, I know, I said it had good MCs. And it does, BUT, Carrie was a little frustrating. Her as woman was fierce, independent, intelligent, successful, sassy, etc. You name it, she had it. However, throw all that out in regards to her thoughts to Reid. She was plagued with self-doubt, insecurity, etc. And just personally, I wish she could've remained the badass I knew she was 100% of the time. She gets there in the end, but it was not without some frustration on my reading experience end. 2 - The tell vs. show that went down. Enemies-to-lovers trope MAY be my all time favorite. Definitely top three. And this story here had the goods because you have two characters that can really go head-to-head. The issues between Reid and Carrie are two-fold: their push & pull as individuals and the greater animosity of their families towards one another. This push & pull is next level. Carrie thinks Reid is an asshole. Both try to battle for control (in the bedroom and professional world.) Neither know whether they hate each other or can trust each other. Those 4 underlined words appear a combined total of 482 times (yes, I looked it up because I was like, wow, these words sure appear a lot). This book is 387 pages. So one of those words is appearing at least once every page you read. This is the literal definition of all tell and no show. This back-and-forth game of theirs was relentlessly hammered upon. But honestly, I liked this couple enough and the overall potential of the story, that I'm not incredibly annoyed by it. But, yeah, the author lacked total subtlety on this enemies-to-lovers thing. Last thought: This book is 387 pages. It's long. And the author mentioned at the end that this couple would get another book. I find that unnecessary. Sure, this definitely needed an epilogue, IMO. Further investigation revealed that all the couples are getting a second book. Again, I think everyone's story so far came to a close. Would I recommend? TBD. Again, I feel unsatisfied by the ending because of no epilogue, but still don't believe that each main couple needs another book. Especially given how long these are.

    Reid tells his woman like it is , "he halts in front of me, that earthy scent of him tantalizing, even when I don’t want it to be. “No one but you will end up on my desk.” Reid is all about compromise, "his lips quirk. “You talk. I’ll eff uou while you do it.” He takes my hand and starts walking." I really liked this book, I loved Reid the man came across a grizzly but he was really a teddy bear when it came to his woman.

Oldest of the siblings, Reid carries a lot of responsibilities on his shoulders and burdens no son should have to bear for their parent. Caught in a family war much like Romeo and Juliet, Reid and Carrie are forced to work side-by-side in order to rebuild both of their companies reputations which have been dragged through the mud by both their fathers. Power corrupts and all of that jazz 😉. However, neither Reid nor Carrie are prepared for the intense chemistry that sparks between them. Blindsided by their emotions, they struggle to understand the relationships that is growing between them. Unfortunately, their family situations and hidden secrets add to the tension between them and the inevitable heartbreak they are sure is bound to follow. Although no-one expected just how deeply and how quickly Reid and Carrie fall for each other. Raw honesty where able allows them to build a foundation of faith, so when that faith is tested they have a clear understanding of each other. I loved how together, Reid and Carrie, are both better people. Especially how seamlessly Carrie fits into Reid's family (by that I mean his siblings) and aids him in building bridges with his sister, Cat.While there is an undertone of deceit within Dirty Rich Obsession, the story and relationship between Reid and Carrie is far sweeter than anticipated. Looking for some sugar to go with your spice - Dirty Rich Obsession has an abundance of both.

Reid couldn’t help it and wanted to protect Carrie fiercely from everything. Carrie after giving in to Reid wanted to trust him in everything but had trust issues thanks to her dad and her brother. She was left in the dark with lots of things which hurt her because she saw her dad as her hero but Reid wasn’t letting anyone hurt her.The ending, for now, got me a little worried but good thing it was clarified. I liked what Carrie brought out in Reid and vice versa. She changed lots of things in his life with his siblings especially that made me like her even more.I can’t wait to see what’s next in this series that keeps getting more and more exciting.

I could understand the trust issues, the feelings of betrayal etc etc between them.I adored Reid and all his gruffness - even if he was a complete dick at times. I did like this story, but I did feel that things were dragged out, which made the book toooo long. I know it sounds like I didn't like it, but that is not the case, it just needed chopping done to it. I mean, it is a LRJ book so of course I will like it.I am looking forward to the next books to come.

    I consider myself a fan of this series of standalones. This is a fine example of magnetic relationships amidst a clash of business agendas.The first chapters are the best kind. Provoking, furiously angry, with two opposing characters verbally and physically challenging each other. The chemistry! The cheekiness!Reid and Carrie engage in a metaphorical duel of epic proportions. Magnificent, tension-filled pace for a corporate tour-de-force where two enemies have to work together to ensure success. I consider myself a fan of this series of standalones.

The cheekiness!Reid and Carrie engage in a metaphorical duel of epic proportions. Magnificent, tension-filled pace for a corporate tour-de-force where two enemies have to work together to ensure success. Reid is the kind of brick wall you love to hate. In perfectly tailored suits, beautiful to look at and easy to want to kill for his insufferable cockiness. Yet he’s met his match in the clever, courageous, resourceful Carrie, who will fight for her heritage with her mind and will while posing a sensual, intellectual puzzle for Reid to agonize over.I love to be in the head of these characters that deal with high-stake financial risks, that try so hard to resist a human connection but cannot resist each other’s pull.Family feuds, inner demons, a battle for trust earned and given, the most exciting dialogues, and passion that pushes the heartrate to its limits. This is one Romeo and Juliette in a world of billions of dollars investments, with characters torn between and impossible love and wars waged in gigantic business deals, and family secrets that can tear them apart in big, jagged chunks of pain.I loved the sheer intensity of feelings and the stirring sensuality. And I really enjoyed the business deals going on in between the very personal relationship. Superb read and 5 deserved stars.

The characters were all rich and intriguing. The combination of them and the circumstance allowed for a connection to form and a bond to stick. Watching Reid and Carrie in the beginning was wow. . . watching Reid and Carrie in the middle was just a wow. . . seeing them continue onward will be just as wow. Reid and Carrier were most certainly a wonderful addition to the Dirty Rich series. I'm looking forward to seeing just where these two are going and how they are going to get there. Dirty Rich Obsession was a good read that allowed in to come in and see just how things got started with Reid and Carrie. You get to see them resolved things for now, but it is in no way done. At the same time it's not a wild cliffhanger. Make no mistake you will be left wanting more but you will not be left without.

    Oh man, oh man, oh man!! First of all Reid Maxwell is definitely that a$$hole type at first glance, but mark my words that man will win you over in absolutely no time. He is all alpha and has no problems telling it like it is, like it or don't. He is always a man that has a lot of walls built around him therefore he is very a$$holish at times but that is not all that man is. Now, Carrie, well what can I say other than she had me cheering her on from the very beginning when she one ups him. And h Oh man, oh man, oh man!!

However, neither of them saw the scorching hot chemistry between them or the very real feelings coming. And in true LRJ fashion, you definitely have the secrets. I sat down with this book with my morning coffee and literally sat there all day doing absolutely nothing but reading. I could not put it down. I can not wait for more in this series. This has become my favorite series from Ms. Jones to date and I can not wait to get my hands on the next one. I will have to make sure to clear my schedule because it is guaranteed that nothing but reading the book will get done. AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING!!! Review by Tabitha

But she doesn’t anticipate the offer from Reid Maxwell who is taking over leadership temporarily with a plan to make the company more profitable than every before and position her in the leadership role. One problem they are obsessed with each other.This is a textbook enemies to lovers story where they both feel a connection that neither one wants to have. I love the depth and intellectual fortitude that these characters possess. There is the overwhelming sexual tension between them and yet they both think that they can just get it out of their system. I adored them although at times I thought the pacing was a bit slow. Overall it was a good read and I am looking forward to more in the series and to see what happens next with this couple.Hero (Reid) 5 | Heroine (Carrie) 5 | Plot 4 | Writing Style 4 | Steam 4 | Romance 4 | Angst-Suspense 4 | Darkness 2 | Humor 1 | Secondary Characters 4 | Drama-Conflict 3 | Mystery 3 | Twists 4 | Action 2 | Pacing Steady/Slow |Dual POV | MF | Billionaire | Twists and Turns | Overall 4.5 Stars#MSBB

Handcuffs certainly piped his interest, and for that moment on Carrie was going to be his. Unfortunately for both of them working together to rebuild her family’s company causes them to respect each other.This is a hot sizzling romance between two people who don’t believe in relationships. The thing I love about Lisa’s books is the female characters are always strong-minded and give the men a run for there money. Carrie is no different, but she can’t resist Reid even if she wants too.I can’t recommend this book enough, if you love hot strong men with a heart of gold, and the women who can’t help loving them, enough sparks to start a fire then this is for you.

Carrie and Reid are absolutely explosive together from the moment they meet and attraction burns hot between them. They are fierce competitors with potentially opposing agendas, who are forced to work together, and both want control. They challenge each other at every turn through sizzling, rapid-fire verbal exchanges and intense negotiations, pausing only when passion consumes them. They fight and kiss, fight and kiss, and fight and kiss again, I loved every minute of this thoroughly engrossing, emotionally charged and deliciously wicked romance.Recommendation appeared on USA Today’s Happy Ever After on August 21, 2018.ARC provided, but this review was voluntarily and honestly written.

There was something that really drew me to him. Reid works hard and plays even harder and when he is challenged by Carrie West it looks as though the sparks are sure to fly.Dirty Rich Obsession was a passionate and intense book, full of drama and angst, It was one of those books I didn’t want to put down The writing was strong and the characters had a great deal of depth to them. I really liked Carrie and how feisty she was.I will be checking out the other books in this series as soon as I can.
