DIRTY DEEDS (Mechanics of Love #3)
by Megan Erickson
About the book:
Alex Dawn is saying no to men. No to bad relationships, disappointments, and smooth-talkers. Focusing on her family and her job at Payton and Sons Automotive keeps her mind occupied and her heart content. She doesn’t really miss a man’s touch, until one night, one shows up with the body of a god and a voice from her dirtiest dreams.
L.M. Spencer is only in Tory, Maryland, to scope out the town as a possible site for one of his company's hotels. The British businessman didn’t expect his car to break down or to find the hottest little American he’s ever seen holding a tire iron, piercing him with bright blue eyes.
They agree to one hot night, one dirty deed to burn out the chemistry between them. But from their first kiss, Alex can’t stop saying yes to this man. And when Spencer’s company threatens everything she cares about, they must make the choice to stand together or apart.

Rating: 4 of 5 stars
First off, Dirty Deeds is my favorite Mechanics of Love book. How can it not be? Alex is a total badass heroine and Spencer with his sexy British accent is just yum!
I don't know what else to say. I don't think there's more to say. Dirty Deeds is everything I could ask for!
The first time I met Alex I knew she's a badass. And reading this book proved exactly that. I don't think I've met a person more stubborn and fiercely determined that she is. I love her sass, independence, selflessness and unwavering strength. She's my favorite Dawn sister and now I have to say she's one of my favorite heroine. I love her confidence. But the best part about her? She doesn't apologize for who she is.
I think the author did a great job in writing Alex's story. She's one of the most memorable characters from the previous books and now she just proved how great of a character she really is.
But no matter how amazing of a character Alex is, Dirty Deeds wouldn't be half as good as it is without Spencer. I've always had a soft spot for guys with British accent (who isn't?) but Spencer is just... he's... *sigh*
What is it with Megan Erickson and cocky, sexy guys who could make you fall in love with them at first glance? I'm not complaining (I would never!) but Spencer just set the bar pretty high and it'll be a lot harder to look for new book boyfriends after this.
I still love Cal and Brent but Spencer just has this genuineness and gentle nature that would pull you in. (Who wouldn't fall for a guy who always puts you first?)
I love how the romance unfolded between Alex and Spencer. Their chemistry was undeniable and crazy hot. They balance each other so perfectly I don't think Megan could have written this any other way.
There are also some great character additions. I wasn't a huge fan of Nick but Penny was amazing. And of course this book wouldn't be as fun if it weren't for the Payton brothers.
Dirty Deeds is a perfect flirty, steamy and funny read. I'm definitely looking forward for more from the author!
I received an e-arc to read and review.
