Quote-tastic/Review-- Dirty Money (Roughneck Billionaires #1) by Jessica Clare


Dirty Money.

Whew boy! Boone. Yall. He's something.

A roughneck who struck oil and turned overnight billionaire. Mischievous, arrogant, maybe a little crazy and a whole lot stubborn and rocking a chip on his shoulder. He was a trip. And perfectly matched with Ivy. A realtor with attitude, a pile of debt, the weight of the world on her shoulders and just enough pig pigheadedness to match his stubborn streak.

Basically Boone is in need of some classing up. He's got the money now but no one takes him seriously because he acts and looks like of of the oil field roughnecks. Rough around the edges? He has it in spades! And figures a fancy house and a classy woman will do the trick especially after he sees a realtor ad featuring one gorgeous woman who just oozes classy and refined. Too bad it's all an act on her part. lol He's pretty much pussy-struck as soon as he sees Ivy and ready to make her his wife which totally makes her roll her eyes. Blasted man! She just wants to sell him a snazzy house and make a big fat commission off of it. And so the chase is on.

Now, they might not sound charming but lordy these two were fun. Quirky, wild, full of passion and fire. It was fun watching them butt heads and take each other for a wild, steamy run. And goodness, yeah, the heat. These two like to get a little filthy. ::shivers::

I had a good time with this one but I will say I don't think Dirty Money will be for everyone. Things could be a little outrageous. The hero a bit over the top arrogant and reactive when he felt slighted by people but if you just go with it it's a good time. Also, he would HATE this cover with him in a suit. He is not a suit guy. lol


And now some Quote-tastic goodness. I flipping LOVE when texts, emails, letters are used in a book so this one was making me smile and gave me a giggle, too. Boone is such a handful and would be so hard not to smile and shake your head at. lol
BP: I was half convinced you'd blow me off again.

Ivy: I promised you I'd text, remember?

BP: Not busting your balls about that. Just pleased to hear from you. Though we could Snapchat if you'd rather see my face.

Ivy: I don't know how to Snapchat... and isn't that for dick pictures??

BP: Only if you want one.

Ivy: I don't want one!!!!!

Ivy: I'm trying to sell you a house, not get pictures of your dick.

BP: I understand. YOu want the real thing. I get that a lot.

Ivy: Omg, I just want to show you a house, you freak.

BP: I know. Just busting your balls again.

BP: And if you're truly offended, I'll stop hitting on you and we can just be all business.

Ivy: Yes, lets talk about business.

BP: So you're not saying you're offended, then.

Ivy: Look at this picture of this great house I found online. I can get a showing for the day after tomorrow.

BP: Do you always avoid teh question when you're feeling shy?

Ivy: Shy!??

Ivy: You are an impossible man to text with.

BP: But you didn't say if you were offended. Do you want me to stop flirting with you?

Ivy: House?

Ivy: See the house?

Ivy: Pretty house?

BP: Fine, fine. I know when to back off.
And this just sums up Boone and Ivy to a T. 
"We both come from poor backgrounds, we're both hard workers, we're both addicted to each other...and we're both pigheaded as fuck."

Boone Price and his brothers know oil; at least, the dirty, backbreaking side of working an oil rig. But when their scrubby, worthless hunting land turns out to be sitting on top of one of the biggest oil wells in North America, they go from the rig to the boardroom and end up billionaires practically overnight.

Now with enough money to do whatever he wants, Boone is developing a taste for fine things. And the finest thing he's ever seen is Ivy Smithfield, local realtor. Boone's determined to buy her affection and show the world that he's more than just a dirty fool with a bit of money. Ivy's classy and beautiful - she'll make the perfect trophy wife. The fact that she's sexy and funny is just a bonus.

There's one tiny problem - Ivy's as dirt poor as Boone is. Her carefully crafted veneer of luxury? All an act to promote her business. What's Boone going to do when he finds out the woman he's falling for is, well, in his league?
