Dirty Deal by Christine Bell

You just know when a book starts with a dating auction where a muscled military man simply has a few twig and berries covering his twig and berries that you’re in for something good!

What’s it About?


Professional matchmaker Serena Elliott spends her workdays helping clients find love. It’s the perfect gig. She gets to see the good part of the relationships…before things inevitably turn to crap. She leads her own love life the same way. Get in, and get out before things get too complicated. One date with sexy army doctor, Bryan Metcalf, won’t be enough to make her change her mind, no matter how hot it gets…

Bryan has had his share of crazy women and isn’t in the market for another relationship that ends by way of restraining order. When Serena Elliott gets into a bidding war for him at a charity bachelor auction, he’s a little worried. Turns out she’s just as anti-relationship as he is, and could be the solution to all his problems. If he can convince her to be his fake girlfriend, he just might be able to spend the rest of his leave in peace. Now if only he can stop thinking about that night on the beach…

But there are other forces at work that believe these two belong together, and they just might find out that happily ever afters do exist.

First Impressions

Bryan agrees to endorse Serena’s dating agency, but only when she offers to be his fake girlfriend to get a crazy ex off his back. Their relationship may have started as a sham, but there’s nothing fake about the chemistry between these two. They do it on a beach under the boardwalk, on a kitchen counter, and eventually they get around to doing it in a bed. They’re dirty alright. Oh sooooo delightfully dirty.



We all know that when it comes to romance novels, if a relationship starts off as a farce it’s gonna turn into something more very quickly. This rule definitely applies in this novel as well. Bryan is leaving for military service in a few weeks, and although they both just want to have a casual fling, they start to develop a more intimate relationship as their sex locales move from outdoors to an actual bed. A word to the wise however: don’t admit your innermost feelings of love to someone in a karaoke song. Be an adult, not a sitcom character.


Series: Perfectly Matched, book 2.

Should you read it? A cute read with some delightful sex scenes throughout. A bit of a cheesy ending with a karaoke love confession, but overall not too bad.

Smut Level: Both characters have an adorable and teasing connection with each other, but also enough passion to fog up a few mirrors.
