Review: Dirty Filthy Rich Men by Laurelin Paige

*****5 Very Dirty Stars *****

Seriously, Laurelin Paige??? You really gonna leave me like this?????.....September??? September is when I have to wait until the conclusion to Donovan and Sabrinas story??? Quite frankly I'd sell my left kidney for a copy of that book right now. 

For those that love to hate and hate to love their leading men, then this is the book for you and let me tell you the title of this book absolutely sums up Donovan Kincaid perfectly. The guy was a complete and utter jerk most of the time and in real life I'd be telling the woman to forget him and move on, but as a reader I love that I saw something in him that Sabrina also must have seen. He was sexy, powerful, demanding with so much mystery surrounding him that I just couldn't help but be drawn to him. 

Sabrina and Donovan have a past that goes back to her freshman year at Harvard where Sabrina initially has an obsession with popular rich boy, Weston King. There's just something about Donovan though that attracts her to him. I too was completly drawn to him. 

This book is set 10 years after Dirty Filthy Rich Boys #0.5 (I urge you to read this novella before reading Book 1 as this sets the back story to the entire tale) and if I thought the chemistry and passion was strong in that book, it was off the scale in this, the first full length book of the series. Donovan, most of the time, like I said, was a completely insensitive jerk, or so we're led to believe, but by the end I can tell you I was completely in love with him. Gotta love a bad boy!

I loved Sabrina's growth from innocent college student in the novella to confident business woman in this book. It made the 10 year time lapse completely believable. I loved her sense of style which is always a bonus when you can imagine what the heroine is wearing. 

This book had me hooked. There was enough things to keep me guessing, enough passion to keep things incredibly sexy and a storyline that was so damn refreshing. I have to say though, I was left with a major book hangover of epic proportions, so roll on September is all I can say.

When I met Donovan Kincaid, I knew he was rich. I didn’t know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me.

I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn't stand a chance against guys like Weston King and Donovan Kincaid, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted—I knew who I wanted—until one night, their world tried to bite me back and Donovan saved me. He saved me, and then Weston finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world.

And then what it was like to lose it.

Ten years later, I’ve found my way back. Back to their world. Back to him.

This time, I’m ready. I've been down this road before, and I know all the dirty, filthy ways Donovan will try and wreck me. 

But it’s hard to resist. Especially when I know how much I’ll like it.
