Amie's Review of Dirty Tricks by Emma Hart ~ BLOG TOUR ~ EXCERPT ~ GIVEAWAY ~

JANUARY 25, 2016
Chelsey Young's dad was a rock star. Glamorous, right? But late nights, frequent travelling, and watching endless women rub their bodies against Lukas Young's in a bid for his attention wasn't exactly how Chelsey planned to spend her senior year of high school.

So when Kye Burke, of the ultra-sexy band Dirty B, sets his sights on Chelsey, she figures the best way to get him off her back is by taking his sexy butt to bed.

But after one night together, Kye has no intention of staying away from Chelsey, especially when she's kissing him one minute then pushing him away the next. From watching her father, Chelsey knows the rock star lifestyle that Kye leads—being away for long stretches of time, girls throwing themselves at him on the regular, shirtless photos showing up in his inbox ten times a day. She wants no part of it.

Kye is determined for Chelsey to get to know him, the real him behind the rock star persona. But that isn't so easy when Kye's schedule will take him away for days, weeks, even a month or two at a time, which is a dealbreaker for Chelsey. Long distance means temptation to stray, and infidelity was the reason her own parents split. She knows it's not fair to project her own insecurities onto Kye, but some things are unavoidable.

But Kye Burke isn't Lukas Young.

And, distance or not, he's going to damn well prove it.




Tate's book may have been my fave book of the series being that we got Dirty B on tour BUT Kye is definitely my favorite of the 4 brothers. He is genuine and funny , easy to be around and just all around hot and amazing !! Chels was a bit annoying with her slightly angsty attempts at keeping Kye away but she grew on me and I was happy with their ending and I did enjoy their journey. I mean Kye hot and drunk , Kye playing the hero in the storm and Kye just giving himself to Chels - ALL AMAZING things to read. Panty melting that boy !! Have I ever mentioned how much I love Mila... LOL ok yes I say it in every review, why stop now. This little girl is right at the top of my list of fave things about the series. Her words , her hair , her attitude. The only thing I hate is that all the stories took place in a small amount of time so we didn't get to see her grow up too much. I mean her toddler ways are adorable but I do want to see her grow into a little lady...maybe a novella , maybe a story of her :) PLEASE Chels knows the Burke bros and their family well. Jessie is one of her besties and they all come from a small town so it is what it is. Chels has always been difficult so it is no surprise that after their amazing yet drunken night she tries her hardest to stay away from Kye. Seriously who can resist his charm. Burke bros go big or go home so there is no way Kye is going to back down from proving Chels wrong. She knows the game , her dad is a rockstar, he left her as a child, and now although he tries to make up for it, he just ends up throwing her in the spotlight with his every move. She is tainted by her father's actions and sadly she may miss out on the chance of true love Burke Bros style. The drunken confessions , the raw honesty and the game of chase leave us with some panty melting scenes and some super funny scenes , of course we also get our Mila moments !! With the band heading back west to record their new album the clock is ticking for Kye to win Chels over or let it go. Nobody is happy about the boys leaving and keeping that in mind there are some things in the works. With Chels fighting Kye right down to the very last minute I didn't know what to expect. I enjoyed the ending , loved the surprise and of course loved the New Year's Eve glimpse of the other couples. I am feeling a novella coming on - right - we totally could do with a novella after that last scene !!


“What,” Chelsey exclaims, “the hell is that?”
With a wide smile spreading across my face, I shove my hands in my pockets like a teenage boy and look at her. “A Christmas tree.”
“Are those . . . penises?”
“Technically, dildos.”
“Like real ones?” She jerks her alarmed gaze to me.
“No. Just plastic.”
She flicks her tongue across her lips. “Uh-huh. Why do you have penises across your Christmas tree?”
“Because he’s an immature little bastard,” Leila answers for me.
“You didn’t stop me,” I shoot back.
“Hell no I didn’t. I cannot wait to see Mom’s face when she sees this!”
“When she sees what?” Mom’s voice creeps through the house ominously, and the close of the door after her sounds like the signal that I should run away.
“Uh . . . I’m just gonna go . . .to the store. . . .” I shuffle toward the door that connects the front room with the kitchen.
Chelsey lifts her eyebrows in amusement, and Dad grabs the back of my shirt so I can’t escape.
You wouldn’t think I was twenty-four. For numerous reasons, obviously.
“Kye Burke, why are there tiny penises on my Christmas tree?”
Her voice is calm. Really calm. I’m even more convinced that I should run. “Merry Cock-mas?”
Mom’s expression is somewhere between insane amusement and extreme frustration.
“I’m just gonna come back later . . .” Chelsey whispers, edging toward the living room door. “When there are less . . . cocks.”
“Good idea! I’ll come with you.” I wrestle out of Dad’s grip and dart behind him, through the kitchen, and into the hall.
Chelsey laughs and grabs my arm, dragging me back into the room. “I said I was going. I didn’t say you were escaping this cock-up.”
“Great choice of words,” Dad chuckles.
Mom pinches the bridge of her nose. “I should have known that when three boys left, one boy would have to make the impression of three,” she says, mostly to herself. “I should have known that the one who never left his little peep alone at two would one day decorate my tree in cocks.”
“Mom! What the hell?” I sputter.
“I should have known that his ball-hoarding obsession at six was a sign of things to come,” she sighs heavily and drops her hand. “After all, there’s one in every boyband. I thought I was ready for this.” Then, she turns to me. “Kye, son, we love you anyway, but I have to ask. Are you gay?”
Chelsey lets go of me, and laughter rips from her. Leila laughs, too, her book falling to the floor. Dad covers his face with his hands, and Mom just stands there in the middle of the room, her eyes wide. Her hands are now clasped in front of her sympathetically, and the tiny upturn of the right side of her mouth explains it all.
“Well played, Mother,” I say reluctantly, walking back toward the front door. “Well. Played.”
