I’ll give her those, too. She needs my face between her legs? I’ll fucking tongue her for hours on end and love every moment of it. Sometimes I read the word "roughneck" in a blurb and my ovaries go all MINE. And there comes a time in a girl's life where she has to appease her ovaries, right? Even if smutty, insta-love romance isn't normally her thing, she'll make an exception for a bearded and dirty talking rough neck. Why? Um, did I not explain that part already? Some kisses are gentle and hesitant, almost as if they’re asking permission. That’s not how Boone Price kisses, though. His kiss is deliciously savage, his tongue plundering my mouth. It’s like he wants to claim me with every flick of his tongue against mine, every caress of his lips. Dirty Money was a total guilty pleasure read for me. It was totally over the top and yet it still hit the spot just right. Think Beverly Hillbillies but with hot guys and sex. Boone was a complete caveman. He was an unapologetic, possessive, domineering, dirty talking caveman and I loved every filthy word that came out of the man's mouth. This was not a man born into money, yet came about it by hard work and a bit of dumb luck. He doesn't put on an act for anyone. He still lives in his trailer with his brothers all next to him, he dresses like a roughneck and talks like one too. He doesn't need the fancy clothes and the manners to make him a man. But tired of the disrespect from all the suits he has to deal with in his business now, he decides that what he needs to spruce up his image is a classy woman and he spots the one he wants on a real estate ad. Ivy is struggling to make ends meet for herself and her sister. Working as a real estate agent for men that are as misogynistic as they are condescending isn't exactly her dream job, but she's determined to make it. She's gone through great lengths to escape her trailer part beginnings and she's hell bent on not going back. When Boone Price walks through the doors of the real estate company she works for and demands she find him a house and takes every opportunity he has to hit on her, she's flabbergasted. The last thing she expected when she looked at him was a filthy rich billionaire that thinks she can clean up his image. Too bad she's hiding behind a carefully crafted veneer that seems to shake on its foundation every time the man looks at her. I want this more than I’ve wanted anything, ever. He’s consuming my senses, until there’s nothing but heat and sweat between us, bodies pressed together. I'll admit, there wasn't much depth to this book. Don't go reading it expecting some deep meaning or carefully constructed and complex plot. But if you're looking for a super fun, sexy read, a la Alexa Riley, this one just may do it for you. Will I read the next books in the series? Absolutely. It's one of those fun, shut your brain off and enjoy sort of books that a girl needs every now and then. I read it, I enjoyed it, and I'm not sorry! Domineering alphas aren't always my thing, unless they're Boone Price. I’m a red-blooded man and I’ve wanted women in the past, but there’s something about Ivy Smithfield that makes me think I never knew lust until I set eyes on her. She’s changed the entire game for me. ARC courtesy of publisher in exchange for an honest review Find me on:

    "Put those pretty feet over my shoulders, Ivy, and I'll lick you until you scream." So who needs me to tell them how much I enjoyed this book? I mean the quote speaks for itself, doesn't it? This book was highly entertaining, it had humour, an alpha male with a soft heart, a very likable heroine and some really hot smut scenes. I mean what more could a girl ask for? Especially one like me. I read roughneck billionaires and I one-clicked.

Boone Price is what they call new money, once just a lowly worker on the oil rigs, he's become a billionaire overnight and could have anything or anyone he wants. And he knows it. But that's not how the Price Brothers work, all five brothers still live in the same trailers they bought way before they got rich. When Boone first sees, Ivy on an ad for a realtor, he decides that not only does he need a woman like Ivy, but he specifically needs Ivy. And so begins the gentle wooing of the woman Boone knows he's going to marry. Just joking lol So Boone comes at Ivy the only way he knows how, by making her see things his way. It was hot and adorable all at once. Ivy also had a few of her own secrets. Big secrets. But she's surprised to feel attraction when the big, dirty, bearded guy starts flirting with her. There's just something about Boone. "I may be a crazy redneck, but I ain't that crazy." I really didn't want this book to end, I mean Boone and Ivy had a tough time growing up and getting to where they were but the author wrote it such a lighthearted way that it was stress free for me. So if you're looking for a light, fluffly and sexy read then I'd definitely recommend this book!

Wonderfully well written and executed by Jessica Clare (yup, the same author who brought reality TV to romance novels), Dirty Money shakes up the billionaire genre with its very unique brand of hero. I was fascinated by Boone Price’s brash and uncouth nature and charmed with his and Ivy’s romance. Ivy grew up as Reba Smithfield and just as poor as Boone, but has reinvented herself as a sophisticated realtor to attract clients with deeper pockets. Boone Price and his brothers literally struck big when they found a vast oil well on their hunting land and instantly became billionaires. Grossing $20 million a day doesn’t earn respect though and Boone is determined to have it starting by moving out of his trailer and buying the biggest property the lovely Ivy can find and while he’s at it he’s also resolved in having her as his fancy trophy wife. When he meets her face to face, her kindness and beauty make him want her heart as well. But what will he do when he finds out not only that her background is just the same as his but that she’s been lying all along? As Boone boldly pursues Ivy stating his intentions to her outright, Ivy finds herself trapped between knowing that she’s deceiving a man who makes her smile and feel cherished and the burning attraction she feels towards him. She first tries to ignore him, then keep him at arm’s length but Boone is a single-minded man who won’t give up especially not when the tension between them crackles like spectacular 4th of July fireworks. This very sexy lumberjack billionaire stole the spotlight. I loved Boone’s honest, outlandish caveman ways. He’s almost childlike, selfishly acting before thinking throwing money around to get what he wants without apology. His over the top wooing and good natured personality made this a very fun and entertaining read. Dirty Money is the kickoff book in the Roughneck Billionaires series by Jessica Clare. It is a standalone contemporary romance told by both points of view with a happy ending. Amazon -> http://amzn.to/2i8ihM2 * I was given an ARC of this book courtesy of the author via NetGalley.

He was so much rougher around the edges than I could ever imagine, and I didn't him appealing at all. But Jessica Clare worked her magic once again, and I found myself rooting for him. Boone Price is a roughneck who has a knack for dowsing oil. He and his brothers hit the jackpot when they found oil on their land and they became billionaires overnight. Boone has the money but he couldn't quite shake the redneck, trailer-park label that easily. Enter Ivy Smithfield. Ivy is what Boone decided he wanted in a woman: elegant, classy, would look good on his arm and would finally give Boone a patina of class that he thinks he needs. There's just one problem. Ivy is a fraud. She's as dirty poor as Boone was before he found oil, and she only looks classy because of her job. This book defines guilty pleasure read. It has all the tropey elements that would usually drive me crazy. For one, the hero is crazy possessive and crazy in lust with the heroine even before they met in person. And yes, the hero totally bulldozed her into doing every little depraved, albeit hot, thing he wanted. Now this would usually make my eyes roll out of head but Jessica Clare just has a way of giving us heroes that walks that line between batshit-crazy-the-heroine-needs-to-file-a-restraining-order-now and OMG-he-is-the-sweetest-hero-ever-and-my-ovaries-can't-handle-it. And Boone despite his roughneck ways, turned out to be a really sweet and caring hero. Two, the heroine is all innocent and virginal. Not to mention self-sacrificing and beautiful and doesn't have a mean bone in her body. She was a bit of a pushover, which is a quality I tend to dislike in my heroines. But Ivy and Boone together just works, OK? They're OTP. I can't really complain. Plus, despite being a virgin, Ivy gives it all that she's got which made for some really incendiary chemistry between her and Boone. Overall, it started out rough (no pun intended) but ended up being so much more enjoyable than I could have ever anticipated. ARC provided by the publisher

Now they have money in the billions. Boone is a roughneck, always has dirt and oil on him and doesn't care one whit for formalities or suits. But it soon becomes apparent he might need to polish his image a bit. But then he sees an ad of a realtor, a woman that is classy and he knows that she would be perfect for his arm. But when he first meets her, he sees something more than just a beautifully classy woman, he sees a woman that makes him laugh and has a charming personality and he only wants to see more of her. But Ivy is hiding a secret, that she not what he really thinks and she fears that she will lose him once he learns the truth... Plot and Story Line This story packed a punch, and what a entertaining and fun story I found Dirty Money to be. Jessica Clare always knows how to write a solid romance, but the humor is just spot on. It does have its outrageous moments that not everyone may be comfortable with, but I got a kick out of it. The story sets off with Boone not having the best experience with a "suit" and the way certain types of men treat him just because he has a more rugged look. Boone isn't ashamed of who he is, and doesn't want to have to change anything. Our heroine is a bit different. Ivy has worked hard to not appear to come from the life she has. Her mother left them, and her father got sent to prison and she was left to care for her sister. She was able to get her realtor licence while working two jobs just trying to make ends meet so that her sister could go to college. But as she tries to build a career as a realtor, her bosses keep taking all the good clients and she is barely making it by financially. And when Boone comes in, looking not like any client she has ever seen but she senses something about him that intrigues her and even though he is arrogant and outrageous she is charmed. Boone, I don’t know that I’m the right realtor for you. It’s just…complicated.” “Well, I think you’re the right one for me. I don’t want anyone else. I told you that.” …I haven’t ever wanted anything as badly as I want this woman, and I feel like she’s dancing just out of reach. I need to figure her out. Figure out the right words that will unlock her reservations and make her fall into my arms. I honestly couldn't could enough of Boone and Ivy, they are so much more like each other than they seem at first. Even though there is a "secret" aspect which wasn't my favorite part of the story, it definitely worked and I liked the complexities of how the story plays out in the end. The drama, the humor, the passion wins me over and guaranteed to win you over as well. The Cover I like it, but I do wish it had a more rugged look to it, since the cover doesn't really portray the hero very well. But I do like the colors and style of the lettering used. Overall View Dirty Money is a passionate romance that is lively, has its outrageous moments, and we see how these two compliment each other in different ways that turn out so well balanced. HIGHLY ENTERTAINING!!

    3.5 stars Dirty Money was a quick, a little over the top romance and I really enjoyed it. In the beginning I wasn't too sure what to think of Boone, he was a little too rough for my tastes but the more I kept reading, I saw a man who would do anything for his loved ones and when he falls in love he falls hard! Watching Boone court Ivy had me swooning one min and rolling my eyes the next. He made me laugh with his antics and I loved how he didn't stop until he got what he wanted.

    I enjoyed this start to a brand new series by Ms. Clare. I like to think of this as obsessive (ok mildly stalker-y) love done right. It’s probably not the healthiest and it’s definitely alot of insta-love with a possessive, protective dirty talkin’ alpha, but Boone never goes completely creepy, and Ivy knows when to push back. Yes, there are some dumb bunny moves, but overall, I enjoyed myself and I’d recommend it if you’re in the mood for a roughneck hero. **ARC provided by author for review** F I enjoyed this start to a brand new series by Ms. Clare.

Boone … redneck, straight-forward, billionaire with a flair to bring things to the extreme. He tells it like it is and, when you piss him off … you better hide the matches.

Boone … redneck, straight-forward, billionaire with a flair to bring things to the extreme. He tells it like it is and, when you piss him off … you better hide the matches. He had me laughing and cheering him on. His ways of handling the “suits” and those that thought they were better than him were classic. If there ever was a man that I would want on my side, Boone Price is it. As for Ms. Ivy, well she was just something else. Embarrassed about where she came from, she changes her name, classes herself up and tries to make her way into the real estate business. But, thanks to some ignorant, stuck-up stuffed shirts, she can’t make any headway, nor can she keep food on the table, the electric on or pay for her sister’s education. She has no choice to keep up the façade and let Boone keep thinking she’s the elegant and classy woman that he thinks she is. She’s falling in love with him and has no idea how to come clean with him. Thanks to the Three Jack(asses), she loses him, loses her job and is back in the burger-flipping business. She has no idea how to get Boone to believe that she’s in love with him. Dirty Money was the classic “don’t judge a book by its cover” story. Boone is scruffy and a true back-woods boy huntin’, fishin’ and loving every day … strikes oil and is making a billion dollars a day. Ivy has made herself into someone that looks like a high-class woman, when she doesn’t have two nickels to rub together. I kept picturing the Beverly Hillbillies with no Granny or Ellie May but a whole bunch of Jethro’s … yep, Boone has brothers and I can’t wait to see what Pamela Clare does with them. If they are half as entertaining as Boone, I’m gonna love them all. Dirty Money was light-hearted, fun and totally amusing. It had hot sex and a hot billionaire, once he had a little man-scaping done. It had a fickle female and whole bunch of snobs. It was a pleasure to read because Pamela Clare kept the story moving and knew just how to keep her readers wondering what he was going to do next. Fast moving, fun, sexy … what more could you ask for in a book! I can’t wait to see what she does next with the Roughneck Billionaires … y’all come back now, ya hear?

My only complaint would be from Ivy the heroine. She began to make me angry with her decision to keep lying about who she was to Boone. I'm getting ahead of myself though.

She began to make me angry with her decision to keep lying about who she was to Boone. I'm getting ahead of myself though. This is a brand new series from Jessica Clare, and it is about Boone Price and his other brothers. They were born and raised as rednecks...and were dirt poor. Then one day on their crappy piece of land, oil was found, and they became millionaires overnight. The only problem with that was the respect that they wanted--especially Boone.....from others just didn't come. No matter where they went no one took them seriously. This could be because they all dressed in baseball caps and jeans!!! Boone one day sees a brochure with a classy looking lady on it and decides he needs to fix his image; and this Real Estate lady on the cover is the woman who can fix it!! When he finally comes face to face with Ivy; he knows she is the one he will marry!! The only trouble is....not all is what it seems when it comes to Ivy....she may not be the trophy wife he wants... This book is a bit of an insta lust kind of book; but when I'm in the right mood, I don't mind that at all. Ivy and Boone's first kiss was hands down one of the most passionate kisses I have ever read about!!! Whew....these two have tons of chemistry. I loved them when they were together...My only frustration was Ivy, and how she was dishonest with Boone for so long. It bugged me as he was this awesome guy who wanted to please her no matter what. I felt that she didn't deserve the kind of treatment he was giving her. It was hard for me to see the good in Ivy a lot of the times because she tended to play a martyr as well. Another great thing about this book was the brothers! I can't wait to read each one of their stories. I have always been a sucker for series that do each family member; and this one I can tell is going to be a worthy series to continue with!! I believe, Clay is next...and I can't wait to read his story!!

    2.5 stars The hero just did not do it for me. Way too concerned about what others think. Too many lies between them. I love this author but this book...no. Also, the narrator went nuts with the accent. And he did NOT nail it. It was not a Texas accent. Maybe Mississippi or Alabama, but not Texas. It was disconcerting.

It would have been so easy for the heroine to be honest with the hero right from the start, but she kept secrets about her past and current life from the very understanding hero just to keep the story going, and to cause heartache to separate the couple, and then give them HEA we all want in a romance  of this nature. Because of the miscommunications and some eyebrow raising plot devices, I would have given this book a higher grade. But overall I did enjoy reading Dirty Money because of the adorable, yet outlandish alpha possessive (also generous) hero who will make most readers swoon. Dirty Money features Boone, who struck it big with finding oil. He makes over $20 million a day (no joke) because of his expertise in tapping oil. He has hired his brothers, all of whom are rich, but are down home boys who love working the land. They also love working with their hands, are scruffy and don’t have filters. Boone is pretty much in bearded lumberjack mode. Even though he’s a gazzillionzaire he still doesn’t receive the respect he thinks he deserves. The richy-rich community sticks their noses in the air around Boone and his brother because they don’t scream money or act the richy rich CEO mega bucks part. Boone lives in a trailer, and finally he decides in order to gain respect he’ll find a fancy lady to marry and also buy a big house and property. He spots an flyer or a real estate office, and zones in on one of the realtors. It’s Ivy the heroine. On her picture alone, Boone decides he’ll claim Ivy. His inner caveman tingles big time. Ivy is a lowly realtor who barely makes money. She doesn’t even make 4 figures a year, below minimum wage, which seems so unrealistic even though she graduated high school and has her real estate license. She works for 3 men- the 3 Jacks who treat her like crap. She still lives in the trailer she grew up in with her younger sister she’s helping put through college. The only way she can survive is giving blood because she is making next to nothing, and may have to go back to slinging burgers to make ends meet. But then Boone walks into her office and everyone assumes he’s piss poor. Ivy will help him find a place to live regardless. But when she finds out what he wants- a huge home with over 20+ bedrooms and over $20+ million, she almost cries in joy because of the huge commission she’ll get, as long as she can keep her horrible bosses from finding out how much money Boone has. But then things become complicated when Boone says he not only wants to buy a house but a woman to go with it, as in marriage with Ivy. Ivy is shocked to say the least with Boone, but she tries to stay professional. But Boone pushes the envelope with her, and let’s just say on their first visit to a house, he makes Ivy see the light when it comes to him because of his skill with his mouth and his beard. All very naughty and steamy back seat car loving. Soon Ivy is smitten, Boone is also toward her, even though he thinks she’s a classy well-to-do lady. Ivy never corrects him because she thinks if he finds out she trailer park trash, he’ll dump her, even though Boone grew up much like Ivy did. Dirty Money is ridiculous fun mainly because of Boone’s antics. There is this scene where he gets his revenge on a country club that is a little over the top devious, and in a way disturbing. It even disturbs Ivy based on her reaction. Boone acts before he thinks, and is almost selfish with his wants and needs, even though Jessica tries to counteract this with his generosity. It’s a bit of a enigma with him at times, almost convoluted because he’s back and forth with how he lives his life, the people he interacts with and how he treats Ivy. Revenge against those who wrongs him and those he loves is always in the back of his mind. Some may even feel if he wasn’t the hero here, he could be the villain. Dirty Money is pretty ridiculous, but it’s a fluffy read that brings forth the romance most readers want, especially with a hot bearded man of the Earth gazzilionaire who wants to take care of the heroine in every possible way.

I couldn't quite decide if I was more disturbed by the idea (that sounded pretty much like a mail-order bride) or stunned by the audacity of Boone Price's all-out, single-minded attitude that went straight for what he perceived Ivy to be. But roughneck or not, he grew on me for the realness and his refusal to be who he always was, which isn't what I could say of Ivy, whose vehement denial of her socioeconomic status in life formed the bulk of the conflict. In fact, the more she pushed him away, the more annoying she became with her own refusal to say a word for fear of losing face. Both characters played at what they weren't for a while - this continued on Ivy's side for most of the book - and I can't honestly say that this pairing appealed mainly because of Ivy's stupidity. Yet aside from several plain ridiculous moments, such as Boone torching every place that has snubbed him or Ivy, the concept of having these roughneck billionaires nevertheless a refreshing one (eat your tie, Christian Grey) and I'm cautiously optimistic to see where this series goes.

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

    This was SO FUNNY ! This was like a modern day version of the Beverly Hillbillies tv sitcom, except that there were 5 brothers instead of Jed, Granny, Jethro and Ellie Mae. Boone, the H, is the oldest brother and acts like the patriarch of this very interesting and supremely humorous clan of brothers. They've also gotten to be billionaires in the same way- oil. There's even one brother who is the only one that dresses up in Armani, Gucci and other designer clothing; this brother reminded me of h This was SO FUNNY ! This was like a modern day version of the Beverly Hillbillies tv sitcom, except that there were 5 brothers instead of Jed, Granny, Jethro and Ellie Mae. Boone, the H, is the oldest brother and acts like the patriarch of this very interesting and supremely humorous clan of brothers. They've also gotten to be billionaires in the same way- oil. There's even one brother who is the only one that dresses up in Armani, Gucci and other designer clothing; this brother reminded me of how Jethro ( from The Beverly Hillbillies ) was always the only one who had to keep up with the other rich folks by dressing up like them on occasion. It will be interesting to see how this brother's story will unfold when it's time for his novel. Boone was a riot and a very original hero. I loved how he did not give a flying F what people thought about the way he preferred to dress in his jeans, t-shirts and boots instead of wearing suits. He honestly did not see why his personal style needed to change to adapt to the demands of his new economic status. This was so much like how cute old Uncle Jed was in TBH sitcom. Boone was a man with the utmost confidence in his abilities, intelligence and he did not suffer fools gladly. He often let his business colleagues think that he wasn't so smart just so he could see what tricks they were up to. There was such a comic scene in the beginning when this lawyer mistakes Boone for just a poor manual laborer and treats him horribly. The guy's ass kissing and sycophantic behavior after he discovered Boone's identity was even funnier. As for Boone, he has even continued to live in his trailer even after starting his oil company and building up a fabulous office building ! Boone's mentality was that since he didn't have a wife and kids and lived alone, then he didn't need a house. But his attitude to the house issue changed a bit after he saw a real estate firm's ad in a pamphlet and noticed the heroine was the only female in the ad. The heroine, Ivy, comes from a downtrodden background and lives in a trailer with her teen sister. She has to take care of both of them because her dad's in jail and her mother ran off soon after his incarceration. Ivy knows the only way she's going to be able to make big commissions in her new job as a real estate sales agent is to try and dress the part. Therefore, she makes a huge effort to keep her personal life a huge secret from everyone since image is supposed to be everything. Boone, however, falls into insta-lust with Ivy and thinks it's time he finds himself a house and a wife. Boone turns up at the agency where the snobbish senior salesmen treat him in a condescending manner because of the way he is dressed. Ivy is the only one that's polite to him, even though she has serious doubts that she will make any commission from him because he doesn't look like he can afford a house. What follows is a beautiful, funny, heart warming and endearing romance where each character has this false perception of what he/she thinks the other one wants. Ivy's insecurities annoyed me a lot because she saw how little Boone cared about image and she was still afraid to relax and be herself. It took her a while to come to terms with it and accept herself for what she was - flaws and all. Boone's interfering brothers were funny as hell and I adored how they were protective of him while hoping that he would really find true love with Ivy. Ivy's early attempts to hide her background and her trailer home from Boone were hilarious. This story line revolved around the significance of social image and how a person's perceptions are sometimes far removed from reality. I LOVED Boone's sexy, dirty talking ways and he was such a chivalrous and sweet hero too. Boone was perfect. He was a lot rough around the edges but he had what a lot of women hope for in a man - a good, sincere heart. He's the kind of man who is loyal and protective and he isn't a womanizer, even though he can afford to be with his billions. He has a bit of a tortured past but he isn't one of those heroes who whines about it and lets it destroy his present. He's a practical man as well. He only has eyes for Ivy and she reciprocates totally. I had a great time reading this and I laughed so much throughout. It was a wonderful novel to read over the holiday season ! One of the funniest scenes has to do with Boone's act of vengeance against the country club and the snobs there who treated him badly. I can definitely see myself reading this again in the future. I've even added the second novel to my "to read" list because I can't wait to read about more blue collar hotties.

I don't read a ton of contemporary romance, but this one piqued my interest. Roughneck Billionaires, y'all! Not the polished hoity toity money bags born with silver spoons in their mouth... but good ol' country boys that work hard and play hard and aren't afraid to get down and dirty in the boardroom or the bedroom. Yes, please! Boone Price (great name) is our first Roughneck Billionaire, the oldest of five brothers who hit it big in the oil business in West Texas. Boone is a man's man and he doesn't let his big ol' pile of money stop him from getting his hands dirty. You are more likely to find Boone covered in dust than in an expensive suit, and that's just the way he likes it. What he doesn't like is all the rich snobs looking down on him and not taking him seriously because of the way he looks. And he doesn't just get mad, he gets even! So Boone decides that he wants to change his image a bit and his solution is to find him a classy lady to go on his arm... and he picks her right out of a marketing brochure! I just loved this no-nonsense hero. He is my kind of people, and I was definitely on Team Boone throughout this book and, at time, to the detriment of our heroine. So our heroine is Ivy Smithfield, a struggling real estate agent. Ivy has done her best to class herself up and disguise her real identity - the girl that lives in a trailer park and had a crappy life due to neglectful and criminal parents. Ivy is killing herself to try to make a career in real estate while taking care of her younger sister, and this dirty roughneck walks into her real estate office at just the right time. She isn't quite sure what to make of Boone Price... and the things coming out of his mouth. He comes on strong and doesn't let up, and it slowly chips away at Ivy's resistance. Knowing that Boone wants a class act, she keeps her real self hidden away from him, afraid of how he will react if he finds out. I'm not a big fan of deception in my romance, so Ivy's omissions and misdirections bothered me sometimes. I think she was selling Boone short, believing that Boone would care more for her social status than he would for her as a person. But I give her props for the lengths she went to for her sister, Wynonna, while trying to shield her from the harsh reality of their financial situation. Boone is like a bull in a china shop. He goes after what he wants and doesn't take no for an answer. So the relationship between Boone and Ivy was a bit of him being a bulldozer and slowly chipping away at her resistance. But he was a charming bulldozer and I couldn't get mad at him for it. Plus we know that Ivy really needs someone like Boone in her life, if only to rescue her from herself. And once they do come together... yowza! They had some great chemistry and I didn't mind Boone's rough and tumble ways AT ALL. I am really looking forward to the remaining Price brothers in this series, but I don't know if any of them will top Boone. As the head of the family, he seems to be the most serious one and has his stuff more together than the others. But I think the remaining brothers will be good fun and entertainment and I can't wait to see how alike and different they are. I do wish the cover would have matched the storyline a bit more. Our hero is a roughneck, usually covered in dust, with scraggly hair and a beard to match. So I think the guy on this cover is a little to polished and tidy to represent the Boone Price we came to love while reading Dirty Money. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from the publisher, Intermix/Berkley.

And see, that was what was so appealing about Dirty Money. Dirty Money breaks the romance book rules for me in many ways, but I ended up not caring so much about that when all was said and done. A rough guy billionaire, Boone Price, grew up dirt poor and scratching out a living working the oil rigs of West Texas discovering he has a specialized skill that leaves him and his brothers set for life and waaaay out of his element. Boone is troubled by the superior attitudes of other people who either want to change him into something he's not or treat him like the dirt he is covered in after a hard day's work. His plan is to buy a big house and have a classy woman. He thinks he has all that covered when he spots a real estate office ad with a classy realtor on the front who can sell him a house and he'll sell her on being with him. Ivy Smithfield has clawed her way slowly toward the life she wants that's far from living in a beat-up trailer, a dad in prison, and low wage dead in jobs. When Boone comes through the door in his trucker hat, soiled clothes and rough looks, her boss pushes him off on her thinking he's not worth it. Privately she agrees, but it's not the clients fault she needs a big commission to pay some bills. However, not ten minutes into their encounter, Ivy is left spinning by Boone's announcement that he wants a 40-bedroom home and her because she's classy. If he only knew. So this one was a fun one the way larger than life Boone went after what he wanted. He's starkly honest, confident and sees no barriers if he wants something badly enough. Ivy is his opposite in that she lies all the time and even to herself, she has little confidence, and her life is full of barriers. They come from the same place, but Ivy is terrified of letting Boone see this which makes up much of the conflict in the book. This is one of those books that is an exception in that Boone wants Ivy the second he sees her. There is insta-everything with him. He wants in Ivy's panties and is honest about it. He is also a steamroller in that he never takes things slow or follows the rules if he doesn't want to. 'NO' is not a word in his vocabulary. I shouldn't have liked him, but I ended up loving his character and cheering him on. Ivy was always a struggle for me because of the lying. She frustrated me to no end. The moment of truth was as bad as I thought it would be. I understood her issues so I never hated her and even wanted her to break through her doubt and fear. Now, there are brothers... and I do look forward to getting their stories. All in all, Dirty Money is a light and lusty blue-collar billionaire romance that hit the spot with its quirks, depth, and passion. I can definitely recommend it for those who want a down to earth rags to riches story. My thanks to Penguin Group for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

There are certain aspects of the billionaire novels that have to be present. They have to be insanely rich, they have to be willing to spend their money on the women they are with, and the money has to be part of their world but it can't be all of the personalty of the billionaire. This book had all of this and it did it fairly well. Boone is a self-made billionaire. And one who hasn't quite dealt with the idea that he is rich...he wants people to treat him with the respect that the money should bring him. But he doesn't act the part. So, he needs Ivy. To make him classy. To make people respect him. Or so he thinks. Ivy, however, isn't what she seems...and in an odd way, they are both pretending to be exactly what the other wants...and this makes them work, but also adds a tension as she is not being totally honest with him. The characters were believeable, although I thought Boone...and some of the situations he created with his money...were a little overdone to be totally believable. This didn't ruin the story for me, but I wasn't totally positive I believed all of the actions and at times I felt the dialog and his behavior were more than what I was totally able to think would actually happen. Although, the whole point of the book was that he was an unconventional billionaire...so, while I felt at times it was stretching it, I am not able to say there is no way any of this would happen. The chemistry with Boone and Ivy was spot on, and while it was instalove on his part, I believed it, as this was how he did everything else in his life, full speed ahead, take no prisoners on the way to getting what he wanted. The pacing was strong and the characters were overall enjoyable. There were not any parts in which I was bored. I recommend this book and I am looking forward to the next in the series. ***This and other reviews also featured on “I’m A Sweet and Sassy Book Whore” http://www.imasweetandsassybookwhore.com***

Boone and Ivy's chemistry was great. I loved the way Boone not only cared for Ivy, but also pushed her buttons a little. He called her on things she was doing and even though he was very upfront about what he wanted from her, especially physically, he never pushed her. I must also say I loved how Boone was with his brothers. I loved how he not only shared his wealth with them, but also made them work to earn it. I'm really hoping to read more about them in the future.

Well... one of those definitely applies to Dirty Money. Otherwise, all bets are off. Boone Price is a Texas oil rig redneck through and through. An oil strike on his private land that made him a billionaire almost overnight hasn't changed him one bit. I think that's one of the reasons why I loved Dirty Billionaire so much. Boone is who he is. He certainly doesn't apologize for that, and he's not looking to change anything. However, he does realize that he might need to refine himself just a wee bit in order to gain respect from others - and that respect is something he wants very badly. In Boone's mind, the best way to convince the "suits" that he's legit is to move out of his trailer and into a big house. He also wants a classy woman by his side. If he can kill two birds with one stone - even better. So, he enlists the help of hapless realtor Ivy Smithfield to find him a house and be his woman. Convincing her to sell him a house - easy. She needs to money badly. The other part - notsomuch. Dirty Money is all about the instalove. But, whereas in most books it's super annoying, in Dirty Money it works. Because it's BOONE. This guy is balls-to-the-wall, take no prisoners, takes what he wants alpha male. He saw a picture of Ivy, and just knew that she was who he needed. And, after spending some time with her, he was absolutely convinced. She never treated him differently because of how he talked or what he wore or where he lived. She didn't even treat him differently when she knew he was worth billions. And that made her the perfect woman for him. Except, Ivy is just as much a redneck as Boone is, but she has about fifty bucks to her name and a younger sister to put through college. She is not the classy, sophisticated lady that Boone thinks she is, and by the time she realizes that his bull-in-a-china-shop way of pushing into her life has worked, she's afraid that if he knows the truth, he won't want her anymore. This book is told in dual POV, and the push and pull between Boone and Ivy is only interrupted by some seriously sexy scenes. Boone might be seriously rough around the edges, but when it comes to taking care of his woman, both in and out of the bedroom, he more than excels. Dirty Money is a great start to this new series about a group of brothers who struck it rich, but didn't let the money change who they are. Boone is the oldest, but we get to meet his younger brothers, and I can only hope that future books will feature them. There's so much personality in this family - I'm sure their books will be just as entertaining.

So Boone thinks that Ivy is the perfect one for him when he sees her picture on a real estate ad. So he is going to buy himself a freaking mansion and get himself a classy lady and then maybe he will get the respect he deserves. This book was hilariously funny and sweet and its about two hardworking people trying to find their place in society. One who achieved that but still doesn't feel excepted and the other one pretending that she is a classy lady when all she is, is just someone who is looking to earn enough money to keep the lights on and take care of her sister and to escape the childhood that she had. Definitely a top read for me, and if you are tired of the rich business man billionaire series' then this one is for you. P.s This is how I picture Boone Price And by the way he has 4 other brothers... So definitely worth continuing this series. Reviewed on behalf of

Dirty Money is the first in a romance contemporary series that follows the four Price siblings as they look for love in all the wrong places. This spirited romance requires a definite suspension of belief and some common sense as Clare introduces a rambunctious storyline with some raunchy lovin’ and characters who go all out and then some for love. Boone and Ivy come out strong but soon dissolve into a puddle of misunderstandings and temper tantrums. Ivy’s lying drags the storyline down and I found Boone’s attitudes on money and women tacky as the story wore on. I think the series has plenty merit, I’m just not sure it’s for me.

    Really enjoyed the start of this new series! Full review to come for Heroes and heartbreakers http://www.heroesandheartbreakers.com...

Full review to come for Heroes and heartbreakers http://www.heroesandheartbreakers.com... Jessica Clare launches a new billionaire series set in Texas. As the expression goes, everything’s bigger and better in Texas, and Dirty Money fits the bill. The hero, Boone Price, is one big badass oil tycoon, striking it rich on land he and his brothers purchased. Boone may be the wealthiest man in Texas, but he’s not about to pander to society’s dictates about how a man with money should behave. These societal expectations only piss him off even more. This new tax bracket he’s now perched at the top of? They scorn him, stick their noses down at him, and assume the worst based on his appearance. Because Boone hasn’t changed much about himself. He’s still straggly bearded, working the land, not afraid of dirt, and says it like it is. No apologies for Boone, and I love this about his character. Outside of his loved ones, he couldn’t give a rat’s ass what others think as long as they respect him. Boone’s not above paying for that respect, nor using his money to shove that respect up everyone’s arse. Yet, Boone has such a soft heart. He cares deeply, even if he comes off a bit domineering. And Boone has his heart set on a certain lovely real estate agent he spies on a mailer. With this woman by his side, he’ll buy a classy home and secure himself with a classy lady. Surely, this is a recipe for respect. Ivy Smithfield will do everything in her power to support her sister, ensuring Wynonna goes to college. Even if she has to reinvent herself, changing her name from Reba to Ivy, in order to play the part of a sophisticated real estate agent. When Boone demands she be his girlfriend and his realtor, things get complicated. Because Boone doesn’t really want Ivy…just the image she’s portraying. “Boone, I don’t know that I’m the right realtor for you. It’s just…complicated.” “Well, I think you’re the right one for me. I don’t want anyone else. I told you that.” …I haven’t ever wanted anything as badly as I want this woman, and I feel like she’s dancing just out of reach. I need to figure her out. Figure out the right words that will unlock her reservations and make her fall into my arms. As the reader, we are omniscient. We know why Ivy plays this role, hoping to land that client who can help pull her out of debt. We understand Boone’s pride and why he demands respect. And we totally get the chemistry budding between these two, even if Boone seems over the top at times, and Ivy’s secret wedges them further apart the longer her ruse continues. Maybe it’s because I’ve given up so much of my life for the last few years for Wynonna that I’m doing thise wild, impulsive thing for myself. It can’t be that I’m addicted to a man I just met a few days ago…can it? Well, it can be that too, Ivy. I think we’ve all experienced that love or lust at first sight. And Boone and Ivy’s story is classic. “It changes nothing. You’re still mine.” I move back onto the bed, covering her. I prop up on one elbow and pull her body against mine. We’re both naked now, and I can feel every inch of her bare skin against my own. She shivers and gazes up at me with big, soft eyes. “I like being yours,” she whispers. I groan and capture her mouth with mine. Ditto. I like Ivy being Boone’s, too. At first, I was worried I wouldn’t connect with a grizzly bear of a man, covered in dirt, and taking over everyone’s business with a bulldozer. The more I read, however, the more I fell, just waiting for Ivy to finally do the right thing and explain everything to Boone. The chase is on, and if you like your heroes bearded, dominating, wise from experience, and mega-rich, Boone is your next book boyfriend. He do just fine until we get another one of the Price brother’s stories.

    The text messages between Boone and Ivy are funny: Ivy: I’m trying to sell you a house, not get pictures of your ***k. B P : I understand. You want the real thing. I get that a lot. I loved how caring Boone was "so I scoop her up into my arms and immediately head out to my truck. “You hang tight, baby. I’m gonna get this all taken care of for you.” I seriously loved Boone and his ways, “Ivy, there ain’t no cause good enough for them to stick you like a voodoo doll. This why you keep fainting?” I The text messages between Boone and Ivy are funny: Ivy: I’m trying to sell you a house, not get pictures of your ***k. B P : I understand. You want the real thing.
