He was a dare she’d never been able to resist…Goodreads - Amazon - Barnes & Noble
Cat Thomas has never been the kind of girl to stick. A self-professed infatuation junky, she latches on the newest, hottest guy on the block, then finds a reason—real or imagined—to dump him. When she accepts a dare to rekindle her high school flame and jump in bed with her brother’s best friend, Shane Decker, she knows she’s in trouble. She can’t resist the man, even after all these years apart, and that just won’t do.
Shane has come back to town for a couple reasons. The biggest one? He’s tired of living away from those he loves, including Cat. But now she’s spooked and will do anything to drive a wedge between them, including trying to fix him up with other women through an online dating service.
What does he have to do to make her see that settling down doesn’t mean settling, and he’s ready to spend a lifetime proving it?
Down and Dirty is a nice easy read. Cat and Shane definitely have a past and present full of sexual tension. I felt like story line had great potential, but wasn't utilized. Cat is a professed serial dater. She doesn't want to lose herself to another person. Shane has decided that the time has come for Cat to realize that they should be together. Most of the book is Cat trying to deny her feelings for Shane, and him trying to convince her they would be great together. It felt as though when the story got to a certain length that it was wrapped up nice and easy. If you are looking for a deep plot twisting story, this isn't the book for you. If you want a nice quick read with some hot sex, then this is the book for you.
