The Dirty Series
ABOUT DIRTY DEEDS
No dirty deed goes unnoticed in a seductive game of cat and mouse. But for Alec and Gaige, the wrong move could get them killed.
Alec Drummond didn’t make his billions by playing nice—or by playing much at all. When it comes to pleasure, Alec only has time for whatever’s quick and easy, which is exactly what he gets from his company’s hot new computer genius. But Gaige Owens isn’t some pushover. He pushes back, and it’s giving Alec a rush. The question is, could Gaige be the one who’s leaking trade secrets? Just to be safe, Alec keeps him close at hand . . . night and day.
Gaige never thought he’d roll over for a man like Alec again, but who could resist sex this mind-blowing? Then there’s the draw of Alec’s mysterious side: his cutthroat ambition, his covert CIA connections, and the murder in his past. For Gaige, a deeper look proves an irresistible temptation. But when Gaige and Alec are stripped of their defenses by an unseen danger, everything they don’t know could bring them closer together—or tear them apart. Only one thing is certain: Before it’s all over, someone’s going down.

Dirty Deeds by HelenKay Dimon is a mystery/suspense/thriller that plays off the series 'Tough Love' but can definitely be read as a standalone.
It's fast-paced and opens with action-packed scenes and dialog throwing the reader and the main characters, Alec and Gaige, inside a whodunit plot where time is of the essence.
Alec and Gaige are stubborn, head-strong, and carry secrets that have the potential to blow everything sky-high. They also have an instant chemistry or maybe more of an instant lust for each other that drives them both crazy pushing them harder and faster for truths and lies.
Dirty Deeds follows the same CIA/Black Ops Theme from the author's previous series and I love the intrigue and suspense that comes into play. I wasn't pulled into this story, however, as much as the other books I've read, but I still enjoyed it a lot.
I really do love this author's writing style and getting sucked into a suspenseful mystery with sexy agents who can throw banter back and forth but cover each other's back just as quickly to letting off steam under the sheets makes me a happy reader.
