✱✱ Book Review ✱✱ Dirty Deeds by HelenKay Dimon

Like a lot of people, I enjoy a good romance, but what I really like is romance with an added element. HelenKay Dimon's upcoming release, Dirty Deeds, gave me that in spades. 

Momma Says: 4 out 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

Dirty Deeds is very well-written in third person POV from the perspective of main characters, Gaige and Alec. It is MM and fits well into the Contemporary Romance as well as LGBT Romance genres. I would also consider this one as a Romantic Suspense as there is plenty of suspense and intrigue throughout the story. Our main characters certainly get up to some steamy times, so I would recommend 18+ on this one.

No dirty deed goes unnoticed in a seductive game of cat and 
mouse. But for Alec and Gaige, the wrong move could get them killed.

Alec Drummond didn’t make his billions by playing nice—or by playing much at all. When it comes to pleasure, Alec only has time for whatever’s quick and easy, which is exactly what he gets from his company’s hot new computer genius. But Gaige Owens isn’t some pushover. He pushes back, and it’s giving Alec a rush. The question is, could Gaige be the one who’s leaking trade secrets? Just to be safe, Alec keeps him close at hand . . . night and day.

Gaige never thought he’d roll over for a man like Alec again, but who could resist sex this mind-blowing? Then there’s the draw of Alec’s mysterious side: his cutthroat ambition, his covert CIA connections, and the murder in his past. For Gaige, a deeper look proves an irresistible temptation. But when Gaige and Alec are stripped of their defenses by an unseen danger, everything they don’t know could bring them closer together—or tear them apart. Only one thing is certain: Before it’s all over, someone’s going down.

***

HelenKay Dimon has a writing style that quickly pulls a reader in and that, combined with the opening scene in Dirty Deeds, caught my attention and had my gears turning long before the romance began. Both Gaige and Alec have their secrets and determined to keep them, so naturally, they divulge things, little by little, in their intimate moments. The pair is good together and they have great chemistry, even when they're tiptoeing around each other. 
Between spies, possible espionage, attacks, break-ins, and the steam generated by our main characters, there's plenty going on, but the story did still lag a bit at times. Fortunately, the suspense, intrigue, and twists kept me plunging ahead for the next bit of action. 
Overall, Dirty Deeds is well-written, interesting, and entertaining. It is steamy and those scenes are pretty hot, but it's about so much more than that. There's a lot of story here and well worth the read.
