**Review & Giveaway** DIRTY ROWDY THING (Wild Seasons #2) by Christina Lauren


From the New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player, Book Two of the brand-new Wild Seasons series that started with Sweet Filthy Boy—a story of friends, love, and lust.

Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don’t even like each other...which would explain why their marriage lasted only twelve hours. 

He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. 

She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. 

Maybe she’s too similar to the rugged fisherman—or just what he needs.



I  read (and loved) Christina Lauren's first book in the Wild Seasons series, Sweet Filthy Boy, and I couldn't wait to get Harlow's story!  Dirty Rowdy Thing not only met my expectations it surpassed them!  Christina Lauren created a fun, poignant, sweet, hot and amazing story with Finn and Harlow.  Dirty Rowdy Thing was a five star read through and through and so far is the best in the series! (of course that could all change once I get my hands on Oliver's story)

Dirty Rowdy Thing picks up after the story in Sweet Filthy Boy but this story is based on Harlow and Finn.  While reading Sweet Filthy Boy would give you a bit of a background on this cast of characters, you can read this as a stand alone and fall in love with Finn just like I did.  The chemistry, humor, heat and emotion that Christina Lauren enriches their stories with is really special and had me devouring Finn (I mean Dirty Rowdy Thing) in two nights.

Harlow was a character I wanted to know more about from Sweet Filthy Boy and I am glad her character turned out to be such a great person!  Yes, she comes across as a good time girl, that likes to bust your balls, but Christina Lauren made her much more than that.  I love how "human" and real she came across and her struggles, choices and need for distraction was great reading.  Harlow with Finn was a strong chemical reaction that blew up my Kindle with sparks and heat!  I loved these two together and their journey was fascinating to read.  Finn is a tough character, he has lots on his shoulders and wants what he is afraid to admit he wants.  Christina Lauren created the perfect combination of dirty, kinky, sweet and incredible with Finn.  Watching these two go from the random hook-up to friends to growing real genuine feelings for one another was addicting.  I loved these two!  

Christina Lauren's writing keeps getting better and better, each book is better than the last and I can't wait for more from these characters!  The characters created in this series have great chemistry and are people I want to know more about!  I loved getting to check in on Mia and Ansel and seeing what Oliver and Lola are up to as well (I really need Oliver's story!) 
 Christina Lauren knows how to write a story that is fun, quirky, HOT and emotional all rolled up into a fantastic story about two people who are going through life trying to find themselves but along the way they find each other too.  

If you are a fan of the Wild Seasons series (or the Beautiful Bastard series), you will love Dirty Rowdy Thing.  If you have have never read a Christina Lauren book before you are in for a treat!  
Dirty Rowdy Thing is an amazing story about two people who think they want only one thing from each other, but discover they want so much more than what is on the surface.  I can't wait for the next book in this series, Christina Lauren books are auto-buy books for sure!
