Dirty Scoundrel by Jessica Clare
Date Read: October 2017
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
In a sizzling novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Dirty Money, there’s rich, and then there’s filthy rich when an oil tycoon takes being a roughneck billionaire to a new level.
Clay Price has everything he’s ever wanted, except the one thing money can’t buy—Natalie Weston. Years ago, Clay and Natalie were in love…until she turned down his marriage proposal. Now Clay and his brothers are oil-rich billionaires, and they can have whatever they want. And what Clay wants is Natalie in his bed, no matter what it takes. If it means being ruthless, he’ll do it.
Natalie gave up on true love years ago when the realities of the world destroyed her fairy-tale hopes. Giving up Clay is her biggest regret in life, and she’s excited to see him return…until she finds out why. Clay’s got one hell of a proposal for her: he’ll save her father’s business and bail Natalie out of debt if she’ll agree to become his very personal assistant. It’s clear that he wants more from her than just typing.
It’s also clear that Natalie has no choice. This scoundrel’s bet could destroy any hope they had of reconciliation—or it could bring them together once and for all…

Quick Thoughts: I am obsessed with this series even though it doesn’t check any of my must reads sections. In fact, it kind of checks off my opposite list: billionaires and virgins. I actively avoid those most of the time. Yet, I am getting a kick out of these Roughneck Billionaires and mostly cause they act like men who got money working hard but don’t have any intention on being society. Clay was an over-the-top alpha. In fact, the premise was a little off-putting in the beginning to the point I almost shut the book after a particular “stupid” moment. I am glad I stuck with it though cause he totally won me over for Nat. This won’t work for everyone but those who like over-the-top Alphas will totally swoon.
