Dirtying It Up - Calista Fox (Review and e-book giveaway!)

 4 Stars!

A prophecy whispered in Jasmine Rosso’s ear by a gypsy fortuneteller in San Diego’s Seaport Village leads her to a sizzling night with sexy glass artist Jake Hartnett. But the clock’s running out on the time allotted to fulfill the prophecy, and if Jasmine doesn’t make a true love connection with Jake before midnight on Valentine’s Day, she’ll lose everything she’s worked so hard to achieve this past year...including the trendy martini bar and bistro, With a Twist, that she owns with her two best friends. Worst of all, she’ll lose Jake—the only man she’s ever wanted.

Another Hot and Steamy book in the "Love, Served with a Twist" series. There was so much steam coming from this book I had to keep wiping my glasses. Once again the series continues the saga and fate of these 3 women, will they, will Jasmine find true love before midnight on Valentines Day?

There was real nice character development. It was funny, in this book I actually felt closer to the male - Jake. I liked him right away. He seemed sweet and nice. I also felt that he was genuine and sincere and really did want a relationship with Jasmine. It was Jas. that I wasn't so sure I liked! I did end up liking her in the end, she just didn't give me a good first impression.
This is a fun, quick and sexy read. (NOT recommended for young readers).
