Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway: Dirty Little Lies by Clare James

Twenty-nine-year-old Stevie Sinclair has just lost everything: her boyfriend, her apartment, even her ugly bird named Free. (Yeah, she knows it’s stupid name, so don’t start.) But most importantly, Stevie’s lost herself. 
As she shuffles through her days in worn-out Hello Kitty PJs—eating ice cream, sipping wine, and contemplating her next move—a magazine article catches her attention. Blaring black letters read: "How to Get Your Sexy Back in Six Easy Steps." 
Stevie studies the article in the trashy magazine like the good student she is and immediately knows what she has to do. With the magazine article in hand, and a bottle of red in her bag, Stevie embarks on a journey to reclaim her life and win back her ex. 
Until she meets Gabe Shannon. Gorgeous, single, and on a quest of his own, Gabe introduces Stevie to a lifestyle that is sure to help get her sexy back and then some. If she doesn’t chicken out … (Oh, you know where this is going.) 
What follows is a story of self-discovery, romantic gestures, erotic encounters, and following one's heart--even if it leads in unexpected directions. 

I loved this fast moving, sexy story!  Stevie lives with her boyfriend Max who is perfect in almost every way.  He treats her like a princess, he is hot, he has a great job, knows all of her favorite things but there is one problem.  He can't give her the big O!  He's a dud when it comes to anything sexy.  He cringed when he saw her box of sex toys.  Stevie puts up with all of this because she figures he is the type that you settle down with. 
After a shocking discovery, Stevie finds herself wanting to explore her sexy side.  She needs to get her sexy back and she has a plan.  How did she get into this rut anyway?  She takes control of her looks, her wardrobe and most importantly of her attitude.  This sends her right into the arms of Gabe Shannon.  Gabe is everything that Max isn't, mysterious, sex on 2 feet, domineering and confident.  Stevie follows his lead and has the time of her life.  She never knew she could enjoy life and sex like this.  She beams not only in the bedroom but at work as well!
In a strange twist of fate, Stevie is put into a room with Max and faced with a decision.  Does she want her security back?  Or does she want the exciting new life she created for herself?  Also, is Gabe who she thinks she is? 
I loved Stevie and I loved how she worked through her problems.  She is strong with a little bit of self doubt.  The confidence she grew was so impressive!  The sexy scenes in this book were HOT!  Gabe is one that you shouldn't let go!  So glad I read this book, took me a day!  Pick it up if you want something different and sexy with little heartache!
