It’s hard to believe when I get the call: an offer to work for one of the Sabatini brothers. Cesare and Dante head a real estate firm that buys, sells, and owns some of the most spectacular real estate in Chicago. Dante Sabatini is the youngest of the brothers, and even though he’s an arrogant manwhore he doesn’t come close to the a$$hole level of the oldest Sabatini, Cesare. While I work for Dante, Cesare is in the office across the hall—and too close for comfort. I’m not sure what misfiring synapse has my stomach flipping a thousand times a minute or my skin hot and tight when the man is around, but I’m doing my best to ignore it. Even if I weren’t a virgin, I’m very aware getting involved with Cesare Sabatini would be a complete disaster.

Until the moment I find out Cesare is having the same problem. Seriously? The insanely gorgeous billionaire wants me? My fat ass? Okay, not nice, but I believe in being honest in all things, and honestly I’m a plus-size woman who has become numb to insults I have heard about my weight. I’m far from numb at the idea of throwing caution to the wind and giving in to the dirty demands Cesare whispered in my ear. 

Then I get a call I never thought I would have to deal with. My little sister is being blackmailed. I need twenty five thousand dollars or her future goes up in flames. I’m borrowing it, I’ll put it right back.

When Cesare finds out, he demands twenty-five days and nights of my body. Only once I’m in his home and life, twenty-five days isn’t enough—I want forever. But what does Cesare want?

Tracey’s Review

I was instantly hooked with I saw this books blurb, instant attraction, alpha males and a sassy heroine. So, when I got an ARC I was so excited. 

Unfortunately, there was something about this book that I just felt a disconnection with. Maybe it was the constant hot and cold behaviour from the main male character, that I found a bit annoying or maybe it was the constant mentioning of the heroines plus size figure that hit a nerve. Ultimately, I just couldn’t find that connection that I look for in a story. 

However, there was some parts that I enjoyed which helped me to finish this book. It had a good insta-chemistry connection between the main characters and I’m always a sucker for big beautiful women getting their perfect alphas. 

While I found the better half of the book to lacking in pace, it did pick up towards to the back end once the main characters got over their issues and we started to build upon their relationship. I did find that the secondary character helped to aid the characters and story along. 

I love insta-romances, I do honestly, but His Dirty Demands fell just a little short for me. However, I do love discovering author’s that are new to me, so I’m sure I will be checking out more of this author’s work.
