    One thought on “Dirty Beautiful”

    1. The book had a bold topic, but the author failed to execute it well.The heroine was holier-than-thou and the repeating of her goodness of character got on my nerves.In most books this would have prompted me to like the hero…and.I just…couldn’t.Why? For many reasons.*He does not tell his girlfriend he was a porn star. Ok…t even after she told him all of her secrets. Uhh… he does not tell this to his girlfriend that has cheating and STD issues. Even thou he had lots and lots of unprotect [...]

    2. Dylan has moved from LA to a small town in Georgia to start his life over. Many years ago, with a cancer-ridden mother and no money to pay for her treatments, he moved to LA to pursue a career as an adult entertainer. He became “Drake” and made it as a big time porn actor. But he never felt comfortable in that role, and eventually fled to the small town for a fresh start. He buys an older house and falls back on his carpentry skills to build a new career.His next door neighbor is elementary [...]

    3. Erica is a small town elementary school teacher in Georgia. She lives in her Grandmother’s house and apparently has never been anywhere else. She even attended college from home, so she would not have to leave her ailing grandmother.Dylan, also a Southerner, although he is from Arkansas, has recently moved to this small Georgia town from Los Angeles. He is getting out of “the life” of being a porn star. Of course,, he thinks he is going to be able to keep his past a secret.Obviously, he do [...]

    4. You wouldn't think a book about a former porn star would be anything but kinky and crazy. Jodie's done an amazing job at humanizing Dylan and bringing his life choices into perspective. Loved the book, like, let me read it a few more times L-O-V-E.

    5. Rating: 3.5Quick Take:The intriguing premise of Dirty Beautiful delivers quite well on its hints of the balance between love and lust. The male protagonist was the real draw for me--so much so that I would have loved to have seen more focus on his past struggles, which are referred to frequently in the book but not deeply explored. Overall, there's plenty of sexy and sweet, with a likable cast and promising plot threads for future books.Review (Originally posted at Book Lovers Inc):How does a po [...]

    6. I have to admit. There is a preconceived notion about porn actors. They are objectified and it's hard to remember that they're people with hopes and dreams of their own. In this one, Dylan has decided he's had enough of being a porn actor. His only living relation, his sister, won't speak to him, because she thinks Dylan didn't attend their mother's funeral because he liked making porn more. Which was totally wrong. Dylan made a lot of money making porn, but he now thinks it's slowly killing him [...]

    7. Dirty Beautiful by Jodie Becker is the hottest, most unique book that I've read this year! In what seems to be a case of "grass is always greener" syndrome, Dylan is an ex-porn star wanting to live a normal life. He moves to a small town where (hopefully) no one will recognize him. His next door neighbor is a cute, curvy grade school teacher who is the epitome of innocence. Dylan can't help but gravitate toward her like a moth to a flame, but doesn't believe that he is good enough for her. You s [...]

    8. I loved the tenderness in the character interaction in Dirty Beautiful. When I first started to read it, I couldn't conceive of a teacher and an ex-porn star falling in love but, by the end of the book, I saw how deeply Jodie Becker went into the make-up of each character and revealed their secret yearnings for a better life and true love. I liked the scars beneath the surface of the hero and heroine and how they each worked to overcome them. Despite the implications of the title, I found this s [...]

    9. I gobbled Dirty Beautiful up in one day, reading whenever I could squeeze in minutes here and there because it was so engaging. Very well-written with characters I loved and totally rooted for. Dylan was so much deeper than I expected (given his history) but still flawed enough to make him a perfect romance novel hero. And the steamy parts were awesome. I'd recommend this book to anybody who enjoys hot, contemporary romance. Can't wait for the next release from Jodie Becker!

    10. If you believe in love and redemption you will love this book. Sexy but still very romantic. This is the story of Dylan a former porn star who moves from L.A to a small town in GA. He meets curvy and sexy Erica a school teacher and his next door neighbor. This story has humor, romance and hot steamy sex.

    11. Dirty Beautiful is a wonderful read, with a clever plot, and engaging characters you want to root for. This debut book has a level of depth you don't expect and gorgeously written scenes that just jump off the page at you. Looking forward to more from this author!

    12. 4 stars. I truly enjoy this book. Very unique story. From an ex porn star finally found love and happiness. Kudos to Ms. Becker.
