Down and Dirty (Italian Stallions Book 1) Kindle Edition
What happens when a down-on-her-luck single mom meets not one, but two sexy saviors? Roommates with twice the benefits.
Jess has one goal in life—protect her son. But when an overcrowded shelter puts her and Jasper out on the street in the dead of winter, she fears she's going to fail that mission. Help comes in the form of confirmed bachelors, Tony Moretti and Dr. Rhys Beaumont.
Tony and Rhys share the same motto—work hard, play harder. But when fate drops a homeless waitress and her young son on their doorstep, their wild and free lifestyle takes a sharp turn. Their desire to help her is only surpassed by their desire to claim her, share her, make her theirs.
When Tony and Rhys offer Jess a place to stay and security, there's no denying the chemistry between the three of them. All she has to do is let them in. But Jess isn’t willing to get hurt again . . . no matter how persuasive, how determined, how deliciously possessive her new roommates are.

I couldn't stop reading until almost midnight when I finished the book and then I was upset that it ended so soon.
Jess is a single mother down on her luck that is trying so hard to provide and take care of her son Jasper and one night she parks her car outside of Tony Moretti and Dr. Rhys Beaumont house. She knows them both from her work at the diner where they both visit every week and while driving the cold streets of Philadelphia she finds in her wallet a business card with their address. This decision will change Jess and Jasper's life!
When Tony and Rhys discover Jess freezing in the car in the early morning they convince Jess to let them help her and her son.
Tony and Rhys are willing to do anything to keep Jess and Jasper safe in their house and they use aunt Berta to help them convince Jess to except help.
The longer Jess spends time with Tony and Rhys the harder it is for her to hide her attraction to them and we soon discover the attraction is mutual but Jess is guarding her heart and is scared to open her heart and trust Tony and Rhys.
Wild and Dirty was a very emotional read, I felt so bad for Jess and Jasper and how they had to deal with homelessness and no family friends support
Jess is such a strong heroine and I loved how she takes care of her son and how she is doing everything she can to improve their life even excepting help when it's hard for her to trust other people.
Tony is a super alpha man and he and Jess don't see eye to eye but you can tell how much he cares for her and Jasper. Rhys seems more calm and relax until you really get to know him.
The sexy times were super-hot and when you put two hot alphas and a strong woman together the sparks fly!
The secondary characters really added to the story, aunt Berta, Rhys sister's Penny and the rest of Tony's family, The Moretti.
I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series, I already pre ordered the second book in the series coming out in June.
Single mom Jess is trying to do everything in her power to take care of her precious son, Jasper, but unfortunate circumstances keep knocking her down as she tries to get up. One desperate decision to park her car, in the middle of winter, outside the building owned by two customers who come into the restaurant, just might have not only saved her life but changed her luck.
Dr. Rhys Beaumont and Tony Moretti are headed for their morning run when they notice a car parked outside of their building. Going over to investigate they found an almost frozen Jess and to their surprise her son packed under every piece of clothing they own. Once they get them inside and warmed up, they find that Jess and Jasper are homeless. They offer them a refuge, but Jess wants to refuse. With the help of his aunt and family and a little bit of help from Jasper she agrees to stay.
Just when Rhys and Tony figure out that they both love Jess, Jess finally finds the courage to leave but knows she is leaving her heart behind. Except Jess didn’t count on one thing: Tony and Rhys aren’t ready to let her go……
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily
Well to be honest, she always delivers the best stories out there. (Although, she did fail to deliver enough snow so I could stay home and re-read this one yet again.)
This time she has upped the game with Dr. Rhys Beaumont and Tony Moretti who co-own a wonderful building with their offices and their home. They are both generous caring men. And easy on the eyes as a bonus. They share their lives but so far not the same girl friend.
Jess is a single mom down on her luck. As in she and her young son are living in their car. Among the various jobs Jess holds, she is a waitress at a dinner where Rhys and Tony meet friends for lunch on a regular basis. At some point, Rhys gave Jess his business card. For some subconscious reason, Jess has held onto this card despite all of her troubles.
On a bitter artic cold night, Jess finds that card tucked into the deep recesses of her bag she calls a purse. She has just enough gas to get to their building and parks in front of it. She pulls out all of the clothing in the car and uses it to create a warm cocoon to keep her son not only warm but safe. Jess is determined to make this something that her son thinks is fun so she calls it car camping. But she is fully aware of the dangers but when you are at your wit's end and barely hanging onto to the last thin piece of string that was your rope.
Coming out of their building the next morning Rhys and Tony at first don't think much about the car parked in front of it when they head out for their run. But when they are coming back, they realize something is wrong and leap to the rescue.
And this is where the story starts to get interesting. The guys have purely altruistic plans when they rescue Jess and her son but both men slowly realize that they want her for themselves. And unknown to them, Jess is having some pretty hot fantasies involving both of them. And then things get steamy enough to hold off the artic cold.
Definitely a must read and even better to read it on a steamy weekend to hold off the cold. And enjoy your favorite beverage and fantasies while you read.
I did receive a copy of this novel in advance from the author in exchange for a fair and unbiased review. And Mari, I still want that snow you promised so we would have another snow day or two

The story was developmental was great, it flowed easily. The characters were engaging, I found Jess’s story believable and heart breaking, it’s a reality that’s a real problem in the normal world and I felt the author did a great job of highlighting this.
Tony and Rhys were great, the way they took these two in, cared for them and never made them feel anything but welcome was perfection.
I’ll be definitely checking out more from this author.
It’s a yes from me.
