Kinky Sexy Dirty by CD Reiss on March 28, 2016 Buy on Amazon Goodreads Genres: Contemporary, Romance Cocky. Sexy. Charming. Out of my league. That’s Dash Wallace. A toe-curling, sheet-ripping mistake waiting to happen. It would be helpful if he’d stop moving with the grace of a hungry cat. Or staring at me with his thumb stroking the stitches of his World Series ball. We’re talking about the game but all I can think about is how much of my body he can cover with those hands. It’s keeping me from concentrating on what his lips are saying. Which is dirty. All dirty. I have to gird my freaking loins against this guy. I’m determined to know his secrets and he seems determined to get into my pants. Sleeping with him could ruin everything, and let’s face it, I don’t trust him enough to let him anywhere near me. Smart. […]
