From New York Times bestseller Kendall Ryan comes a delicious new standalone romance featuring an accidental Vegas wedding and a totally perfect alpha hero.

Remember that time you accidentally woke up in Vegas married to your hot younger guy friend?

That’s basically my life right now.

Mistakes were made, okay?

He's too young for me. Twenty-three to my thirty. And he's saving himself for the right girl.

Yup. Apparently I've married the last alpha-male virgin on the planet. And my stubborn, oddly traditional, new husband doesn’t want a divorce.

He wants me.

Complicated doesn't even begin to cover it.

Down and Dirty is a sexy romp with a hero you'll melt for and a relatable, sassy heroine you'll love. If you’re a fan of steamy romances with laugh out loud moments, grab yourself a copy– you won’t regret it!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Booksprout and I am voluntarily reviewing it. While this is the 5th book of the series, it can be read as a stand-alone. I haven't read the prior books myself and they really weren't needed to fully understand and enjoy this one. I will say that I do intend to go back and read them though. I adored this book. It was one that kept me turning the e-pages! Then my heart broke when it ended. Why can't the stories go on forever?! Landon is such a wonderful hockey-playing 23 year old rookie on the team. Aubree is a 30 charity organizational worker. They go to Las Vegas with a bunch of team-mates of Landon's to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of one of the team-mates. The day after they all go clubbing, Aubree wakes up to discover a "big rock" on her ring finger of the left hand. Plus there is some rustling of the sheets next to her! Apparently Aubree and Landon tied the knot Vegas style! There were some really great scenes here that just had me laughing so hard, I had to temporarily put the e-reader down and wipe my eyes! There were some really tender and heart-wrenching ones as well. I adored the dual POV format. This was especially helpful to reading Aubree's character. She could get a little too snarky for me but then hey, she is a fictional character (even though it made me realize that Landon was fictional as well. Crying here!) This is a sexy read that I would definitely recommend to anyone over the age of 18.

  • Loving this friend group continuing to get together!

    By Samantha B. Sokol
    Loving this friend group continuing to get together! I loved that this book was different in that the guy in the story was the virgin, not to mention the age difference with the woman being older than the guy. Landon has worked hard to become the rookie on the team and has a great head on his shoulders, making sure he doesn’t do anything to risk his position and his job. Attracted to Aubree, he finally gets his chance to get to know her better during the party in Vegas, and they end up making a life-changing decision while there. Aubree has a lot of trouble dealing with their age difference, which I understand but love how he takes care of her and makes her feel special. But with Aubree denying their relationship and feelings risks it after Landon finds out, but the twist in the story brings things full circle. Fully enjoying this series and this story, and can’t wait to see who falls next on the team! I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
  • Great!!!

    By rlamlt
    When Landon and Aubree wake up married, he thinks he wants to at least try. They have great chemistry and she is everything he is looking for. Aubree has to get past the age difference. This was a great first time age gap romance. The chemistry was great. I liked how the relationship grew organically. Landon was super sweet. Aubree was assertive. A great steamy read.
  • The Rookie

    By LisanneH
    The Rookie. How much do I love a virgin hero? So much, I can’t even. Seriously. Landon Covington is the rookie on the team, 23, sweet, rule abiding, has some insecurities, a Virgin, and just woke up married. Aubree Derrick is 30, single (we, she was) sassy and just woke up married in Vegas. To the rookie, Landon. And he is a rookie with a durty mind. But he’s sweet and all kinds of hot. Highly recommend. Cuz it’s got a virgin hero. God bless hockey players.
  • Heck yes!

    By BookishBabe89
    An alpha but sweet good guy of a hero? A determined heroine who isn’t a doormat? What’s not to love. Two strong characters make this a great addition to this series.
  • Love this series!

    By Bibliophile Chloe
    Ooooh! Landon's story is finally here!! I have been waiting, not so patiently, for his story and what a story it is! Aubree and Landon get along like a house on fire!  Their chemistry is white-hot and when they find themselves in Vegas, well what happens in Vegas doesn't necessarily stays in Vegas! First off, I love the older woman, younger man dynamic! Love knows no boundaries! I admired how Landon made Aubree feel confident in the fact that she was older than him and why it didn't matter. I also loved Landon's innocence, I liked that he was saving himself for just the right woman. This was a story I could not put down till the end. There is a bit of angst that kept me turning pages until the happy end! I can't wait to read what comes next from this world and team that Ms. Ryan has created!
  • Fabulous story

    By hnobbs
    Another fabulous book in the Hot Jocks series. I seriously have a new book boyfriend every time I read a book in this series! And Landon definitely did not disappoint. And Landon with Aubree was just fantastic. These two were fantastic together and after drunkenly getting married one night in Vegas, these two decide to try dating and giving them marriage a try. It was actually great to see them not jump into being husband and wife or just getting a quickie divorce. I loved seeing them date and realize that their feelings were mutual. And holy cow was this book steamy! Even though Landon was a virgin when he married Aubree there was no lack of steamy action and chemistry between these two. I loved all the scenes with Landon and all his fellow teammates- Justin, Owen, Asher, and Teddy. And the glimpses into Grant that we got. This has just been a fantastic series and every book is as fantastic as the last.
