***Release Day Blitz & Review***
The Allure of Dean Harper by R.S. Grey
Good morning my dear, naive friend,
I hope you’re enjoying a breakfast of regret and sorrow.
Because you sent me to work for Dean Harper, aka a control freak in a tailor-made suit. Sure he owns the trendiest restaurants in NYC, but c’mon Jo, his ego makes Kanye West look like the Dalai Lama.
He’s the type of guy that only hears the word “no” when it’s followed by “don’t stop.”
Working for Dean Harper would be like selling my soul to the devil…and before you say anything, I don’t care if the devil has punch-you-in-the-gut brown eyes and an ass to match. My soul isn’t for sale.
The Allure of Dean Harper is a full-length standalone romance with overlapping characters from The Allure of Julian Lefray. Both books can be read separately. Chronologically, The Allure of Julian Lefray happens first.
The Allure of Dean Harper is book #2 in The Allure Series, I was lucky enough to be gifted an ARC of this book to read for Gemma Reads Too Much.
I had a bit of a RS Grey marathon when I realised that I was going to get an ARC of this book and I read the first book in this series The Allure of Julian Lefray and then this book back to back.
I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!
Romance and sexy books are dime a dozen but I can only name a handful of author who can combine romance, sexy times and also make it hilariously funny!!!!
RS Grey is a genius, I laughed from start to finish!! I thought that Jo from the first book was funny but Lily is just… EPIC!!
She’s funny in a silly slapstick way but then she turns on her sass and then along with being hilarious she’s also seriously badass!!
I don’t think there are enough strong female characters who don’t descend into a puddle of needy goo when they meet ‘The’ guy. Lily hates on Dean but secretly crushes on him big style, don’t get me wrong she has a bit of a ‘Bridget Jones’ style meltdown where names are banned and cake is required but she never loses her attitude and spark to the romance.
Dean, Dean, Dean….. I kind of want to slap him round the head lol but I also loved him. I challenge you to find anyone who reads this book who doesn’t fall for him just a little bit.
The banter, god the banter is brilliant, its chock packed full of flirting and sexual innuendo.
I love that Lilly and Dean always walk the fine line between killing each other and ripping their clothes off.
The sex is hot… nuff said!!
There’s a really sweet romantic element to this story too, this couple truly fall in love and let’s be honest that’s pretty damn adorable.
This book is funny, like so bloody funny… I read it in bed trying desperately to be quiet whilst laughing my head off. Even better is that even now when I think back on the story I have a little chuckle to myself.
This book is fantastic, its light hearted and silly and I enjoyed every word and every character, I can’t wait to see what this author writes next.
The Allure of Dean Harper gets 5 stars from me.
I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things…everyday.
I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors are Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I’m a comedy geek and love all things funny. Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.
