Cassandra's Review of Dick by R.C. Stephens ~ AMAZON REVIEW TOUR ~

Title: Dick: A Bad Boys Novel
Author: R.C. Stephens
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 25, 2016

My name is Dixon Crawford—my friends call me Dick. I’m rich, divorced and I have two small kids. When it comes to women, I like to play the field. I don’t want to ever be tied down again. I met Eden at a Presidential gala and, yes, I was intrigued. When school started in September I was shocked to learn Eden was my son’s kindergarten teacher… I’d slept around with the lonely rich mothers at the school and had earned a reputation. A reputation Eden knew about… Eden was on the untouchable list—the band on her finger screamed, “I'm taken.” But when she got into trouble with her husband she asked me for help and I obliged. I soon discovered that innocent Eden had secrets of her own. I also discovered she was beyond tempting. Giving her a little friendly help turns into something bigger than I ever imagined…. My name is Dick. I'm told I'm an asshole, but you will need to read my story and decide for yourself!

“A steady paced read with likeable characters, no heavy drama or angst. A great balance from the author of hot,serious and humerous moments and a hea leaving you with a smile.” - Bbbf-sizzlereads-bestbookboyfriends
“How Lovely!!!
If you want a story that leaves you with a smile on your face DICK is perfect” - Reader Reviewer
“This book starts with a bang very easy to get into and entices you to keep reading and that just the prologue.” - Saucy Reviews on Kinky Korner

 Dick is a fun 5 star read, and I would recommend this book to anyone looking a good romance. The story flowed nicely, and it touched on every emotion, keeping me fully engaged. I loved how both Eden and Dixon (AKA Dick) grew through the story, and I enjoyed their interactions. The supporting characters were also fun, especially their kids. Even though this book is part of a series, it is also a rare standalone novel.

I wasn’t sure I was going to like Dixon when I first started reading this book. His attitude toward sleeping with married women bothered me. This was actually the one thing that continued to bother me throughout the book, largely because I felt with his past experiences Dixon would feel differently. Still, overall, I liked Dixon. Don’t get me wrong, there were plenty of moments when I wanted to reach through the pages of the book and smack him for his behavior, which I am pretty sure is the reaction the author was hoping for. He was a fun combination of man-whore and loving father. He was a very complex character who was definitely worth getting to know.

Eden has been in an unhappy marriage for years, and she’s mostly stayed for her son. She is a loving mother and very down to earth for a society wife. Throughout the book, Eden grows quite a bit, and starts to see her own self-worth. This is not an overnight change, and it was sometimes frustrating to see Eden struggling to believe she deserved to be loved. Her time with Dixon in this book really helped her self-esteem, and I loved her interactions with him. I also liked the fact that she didn’t suddenly get over all her issues, and Dixon was not the one to fix her.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

R.C. Stephens was born in Toronto, Canada. She graduated from York University with a Master's Degree in Political Science.

Her debut Novel Bitter Sweet Love is book one of the Twisted Series. Followed by Twisted Love to be released May 31st 2015. 

R.C. is an avid reader, so when she isn't cooking for her clan or on her laptop writing, she's snuggled tight with her Kindle devouring any romance novel she can. Okay, with the exception of Thursday nights. She makes time for Scandal and Vampire Diaries. She's a fan of drama and suspense but she's also a sucker for a happy ending.

Her husband was her first teenage love. They live together with their three children in Toronto. Loving Canadian winters she could never think of living anywhere else.
