Summary

Dylan Locke knows that pining over the young ingenue Audrey Lind is pointless. He can’t offer her what she wants. He definitely can’t give her what she needs. Thank goodness she’s half a world away and he doesn’t have to deal with his attraction head-on. 

But fate has other plans for him, and when Audrey once again lands in his path, it’s only too easy to fall back into their easy rhythm. And then their easy banter. And of course, each other’s arms. 

He tells himself nothing has changed. She still wants forever, and he still thinks tomorrow is long enough. But watching her search isn’t as easy as he thought it would be, and now, Dylan must figure out if he’s really the love Scrooge he professes to be or if he’s been fate’s willing victim all along. 

*Includes Sweet Liar, audiobook one in the Dirty Sweet duet.

I came close to quitting this book

I'll start by saying I have 17 audiobooks by Laurelin Paige and have genuinely loved all of them but with 2 hours left to go on this book I very nearly gave up and at times it had me shouting out in sheer frustration.

I'm all for the 'will they won't they' storyline that comes with romance fiction but in this book Laurelin over played her hand. The period that was set in London was far too long with Dylan and his never ending procrastination, it was so incredibly frustrating bordering on annoyance. *SPOILER ALERT*


I listen to erotic romance books, I'm a hopeless romantic, which is the only reason I stuck with it whenq at the 8 hour mark I came close to quitting it. I want the characters to get together and see what comes of them as couple. You have to wait exactly 10 hours before that happens, theres plenty of sex before that point but it is 10 hours before they become a couple and then the books over with a hastily set prologue less around 45 mins later which left me feeling unsatisfied.
I listened to the last 5 hours all in one go, whether I'd felt so frustrated in smaller chunks I don't know but frustrating is what sums up this book and I'm really sorry about that as I do love this author.

A Dirty Sweet Finale to Dylan and Audrey's Duet!

I really have loved this duo, but most of book two takes place in England as Audrey starts work at the National Gallery. Audrey is still cannot get Dylan out of mind.
So before long Audrey and Dylan play at being friends, unfortunately the sexual tension between is so hot it doesn’t take long before its friends with benefits.
I loved Audrey she was so confident, and knew she wanted and loved Dylan.
Unfortunately Dylan keeps putting walls between them.
I am so excited that the Audiobook is released before the book, so I couldn’t resist buying it. I have to say the pleasure of listening to Shane East as Dylan is the icing on the cake.

Great Love story

This audiobook contains the first novella (Book 1) as well as Book 2.
While both Shane East and Carly Robins equally narrate the first book, Shane East narrates the second book (just over 7hours). Carly Robins narrates the epilogue. They both do an outstanding job.

Not feeling it

This is the duet in the Dirty Sweet series. Dylan Locke a 39 year old ad exec has been lusting over 20 year old Audrey Lind. Emotionally scared by his previous marriage he leaves New York to go home to England and escape his lust for her.

But fate has other plans for him, when Audrey shows up in England for a job at the museum and the laws of attraction kick in once again. No matter how hard Dylan attempts to keep his distance from the young girl he can't help but pine after her.

I found this story difficult to accept. I understand Dylan's character not wanting to get involved after a horrendous divorce, but falling for Audrey a young girl nearly 20 years younger wanting to have 5 children and all her other idealistic head in the clouds didn't seem believable to me. Other than their carnal lust for one another, they really don't have a lot in common.

Shane East and Carly Robins narrate this story with ease. I can visualize Dylan a seasoned British business man in his forties worrying about children in his 80's while Carly provides the unrealistic sheltered Audrey a voice that screams naive.

Shane couldn’t save this one!

Just can’t get over the huge age gap and the flighty immature heroine.

Narration is wonderful though.

Returning for a refund.

I am a believer!

I believe in kismet and this book also makes you feel like there is someone out there for you. I love this one because it wasn’t the traditional pairing of a couple but yet they fit so perfect together.

Sweet Fate is a sweet slow burn with a lot of heat

Sweet Fate is a sweet slow burn with a lot of heat! Elizabeth @ Carolina Chic’s Read

Dylan & Audrey’s Story is crazy hot! Audrey tried so hard to not love Dylan and Dylan tries the same. Sometimes things are Fate and some Kismet!

I really enjoyed that we got a glimpse into some of the other characters that loved Amanda, with Dylan and Ellen being her parents. I found those parts super emotional.

Audible: Carly Robins was perfection Audrey’s Character & Shane East (whom is my favorite male narrator right now) was sexy and smooth. Shane East doing the lines in the male POV as Audrey.. I kept thinking British Valley Girl! Cracked me up!

Oh my goodness!
This was so worth the wait. I intentionally coveted my credit just for the sequel Book 2 to Sweet Liar, and it came with the Book 1 addition. How shattering could it be? Initially, I was a bit put off by the daddy references, but the humorous bantering and passionate interludes won me over in Book 2. Great job keeping me in the story. Love it.

So sexy and fun!

So sexy and fun! Dylan and Audrey have chemistry that burns the pages. She’s truly an adorable vixen and so easy to really see as a character. Fear is the biggest and almost insurmountable hurdle. Losing it all really puts things into perspective.

Love Shane East as narrator and truly had to listen to this book when alone driving in my car! 🔥🔥🔥

Another interesting couple in the "Dirty" series

I loved the other characters in the "Dirty" series (Donovan, Sabrina, Weston and Elizabeth) and how the characters were interwoven in each series. This was a continuation of the series and I could not get enough. It makes me want more! I need to know what happens next in their lives. Please give us more! One of the best parts of listening to this story is Dylan's English accent. It's so sexy and soothing.

Sweet It Is

I loved listening to this combined collection of both Sweet Liar and Sweet Fate. Paired together, Shane East and Carly Robins narrative makes it even more enjoyable and panty melting. This is a laugh out loud steamy romance collection. Definitely worth purchasing.
