Dirty Exes by Rachel Van Dyken
Publication Date: June 5th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
They’re serving up some red-hot revenge. A sizzling series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken.
Blaire has never quite gotten over Jessie Beckett, the ex–NFL star whose kisses were hot enough to ignite the entire Eastern Seaboard. When he chose work over her, Blaire was left brokenhearted. Why else would she have married a skeezy two-timer, just to divorce him less than a year later?
Now Blaire is getting even by becoming one half of Dirty Exes, a PI firm fully committed to humiliating cheating jerks. If only the new jerk she’s been hired to uncover wasn’t Jessie Beckett himself.
Exposing Jessie isn’t going to be easy, especially when she still daydreams about his sexy smile. Further complicating matters is Colin, Jessie’s best friend. He’s gorgeous, a little bit cunning, and willing to help Blaire get the inside scoop on Jessie—for a price.
Now caught between two men—one totally right and the other totally wrong—Blaire will need to decide just how much she’s willing to risk…and whom she’s willing to risk it for.

**************NICUnurse’s Review of Dirty Exes by Rachel Van Dyken**************
Dirty Exes is the first book in this author’s Liars, Inc. series, so it’s a standalone novel. It’s a romantic comedy, so if you don’t care for romcom, you won’t care for this book. If you do enjoy romcom, keep reading!
Blaire and Isla have been cheated on by their husbands and quickly developed a kindred friendship. Instead of getting mad, (OK, they did get mad at first) they get even by founding their own PI firm, Dirty Exes. Their purpose is now to catch cheaters in the process of, well, cheating and humiliate them. All is going well. Business is booming. Then, the next target is none other than Jessie Beckett… the one that got away from Blaire years ago. But is he really the cheating jerk his wife claims? Dirty Exes is on a mission to find out. Enter Colin, Jesse’s best friend and Blaire’s pain in the butt, wannabe sidekick. He’s hot. He’s built. And he’s rich (not that she cares- no, really… she doesn’t care because she’s Ian Hunter’s sister). And he’s… irresistible??
I’m a child of the 80’s, so I fell smack dab in the middle of the Friends heyday. And loved every episode. I even re-watch them on Netflix from time to time now. So the entire time I was reading Dirty Exes, I couldn’t help but think this was absolutely the type of shenanigans that group would have gotten into had the show been set in LA instead of NY. And the book is written so well that I could almost literally watch it playing out in my mind’s eye. From the opening scene to “The End,” Dirty Exes is a hilarious ride of the ups and downs of slapstick comedy, miscommunication, and misinterpretation along with a bit of drama, loveable characters, and a happily ever after.
NICUnurse’s Rating: I give Dirty Exes a solid 4.5 propellers. It’s a quick, fun, light-hearted read (for the most part… I mean, it IS a romcom, so there are a few serious parts interspersed). You’ll laugh, cringe, and laugh some more. You’ll fall in love with Blaire and Colin. And you’ll even fall a bit for Jesse along the way. Looking forward to the next book in this series!
