Publisher's Summary

A million dollars for a year of marriage...

Jasmine Lee is screwed. She can barely afford her rent, much less her father’s medical bills. She needs cash - fast - or she’s going to lose her dad. 

Enter Shepard Marlowe. The tech mogul needs a wife, and he’s willing to pay. A million dollars for a year under his beck and call. Her freedom for her father’s life. It’s a good deal. Even if the Shepard is a beast. Angry, guarded, overbearing...and more irresistible than Prince Charming. 

How is it possible she craves someone so merciless? 

His touch sets her on fire. His promises wind her tight. And when he issues dirty demands, her body begs her to obey. She can marry the bossy billionaire. But can she fall into his bed without falling in love with him?

Probably a good story

This is probably a good story but I only got to chapter 4 because I can't stand the narrators voice, or the way she reads her lines, broken. who speaks like that really.

Wow

Loved that she wouldn’t let his dark take him under. Whilst he was trying to protect her. What started out as a deal , even though they had previously loved each other, soo turned into a HEA.
Narration was awesome too.

Good Read

Enjoyable read. This story is about second chances, at love and at life.

The heroine Jasmine, needs help in order to be able to afford treatment that would help her sick father. Which means marrying her high school sweetheart Shepard who used to be an alcoholic and is still trying to keep his demons at bay. Fast forward six years later and life brings them back together. Shep needs a wife and she needs money for her father’s care. Their chemistry is still off the charts, especially with his dirty talking ways and light BDSM.

First Crystal Kaswell story which was well written. Lance Greenfield and Grace Grant does a beautiful job narrating. I couldn't help but fall in love with both of these characters as I route for their HEA.

Was disappointing

I struggle with this book I wanted to like it but I had trouble finishing had to restart chapters sometimes. The Narrators were really amazing as always. Not my favorite book of Crystal

This book brings the heat 🔥

This second chance romance was enjoyable, but unrealistic at times. Jasmine and Shep have a history together that his alcoholism destroyed. Several year's later he wants her as his wife and she needs his money to help her ill father. A non-romantic marriage contract with no sex involved is drawn up and the engagement is on. It doesn't take long for feeling's to re-surface and the no intimacy clause is out the window. This time around though Shep is a more dominant lover bringing Jasmine into his BDSM lifestyle. But will their steamy encounters be enough to melt Shep's traumatized frozen heart and lead to a HEA ending? This book brought the heat, but did stall at times. Jasmine is a very a likable character, but liking Shep's character proved to be more challenging even knowing the reason for his behavior. I think the narrator's did do a great job and I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a sexy listen. I was given a free copy of this book at my request and have voluntarily decided to leave this review.

Great Second Chance in Love

This is the third book in the Dirty Rich Series, but this was my first Crystal Kaswell's book. Jasmine and Shepard's story is a great second chance at love. Shepard is a strong alpha man, dominant, secretive, with a dark past. Jasmine is a strong woman, loving and supportive. They share a strong and sizzling chemistry. The storyline has a great pace, filled with twists and turns, steamy light BDSM scenes, mystery and secrets. Lance Greendield and Grace Grant did a great job with the narration. I enjoyed it. Looking forward to listen to the other books in the Series. I was given a free review copy of the audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Not that good

I had three hours left to the story and it went on and on. I lost interest. Also, the heroine was too easy and loved dirty sex and needing money for her dad. Her character was not impressive. She might as well be a doormat or a high end prostitute.

HEAVY, DEEP & LOVING

I recieved this book for Free to Give My True & Honest Review & then brought the audio so I could hear it from others readers 😉

Omg things are so, so deep between old sweethearts after Jasmine Lee joined up & gave Shepard Marlowe the deal that'd help her & her Father.
We feel how deep things went for Shep in his youth & how Jasmine felt she couldn't help or see what to do for him when they were younger.
But its when they make the deal & they plan their day...
Come in & see how things turn out between them & see if the past will be able to stay there & the 'deal' just stay like that or will their old love come back into their lives.... 💔💕💗💞

Poignant, and Sexy Romance!

I love second chance romance and adding in a marriage of convenience makes it even more enticing! Jasmine and Shepard were so in love in high school. They had big dreams of forever until Shep started pulling away and drinking too much. They both made their own choices which tore them apart, breaking both their hearts. Now years later Jasmine is working hard but still struggling to pay bills and find treatment for her dying father. Shep has a dark secret that forces him to find a wife. He has always trusted Jasmine, even after all they've been thru. He offers her a chance to help her and her father, but at a cost to both their hearts. This is a moving, sizzling romance that slowly reveals the heartbreaking secrets that Shep is keeping. Jasmine is so loyal and loves fiercely. She will do anything to help her father and soon the broken man before her as well. I loved Jasmine, and her relationship with her family was so sweet and lovely. Shep wanted what they had, but believed he was too damaged to really have. The chemistry and passion between Shep and Jasmine is explosive and helped him to open his heart and to believe in love again.
Lance Greenfield, and Grace Grant did an amazing job portraying both Shep and Jasmine in all their strengths and vulnerabilities. Greenfield's deep raspy voice embodies Shep and all his dominant possessiveness, and makes me feel all his turmoil, pain, and love. I have listened to Grace Grant previously in lighter romance audios and loved how she nailed these characters in this raw and emotional story. Together they brought this poignant, and sexy romance to life keeping me totally engaged from start to finish.

Redeemed bad boy

I loved this story. Sheppard has so much going on and can be classified as the alpha-est male. His weakness might be Jasmine. He is forced into situations he hates but can’t control it. What he can control, he does so so well. Jasmine loved Sheppard at one time. His vises were too much for her and she walked away. The development of these characters is so good. Sheppard is one you love to hate and Jasmine is one you ask her what she’s thinking. The narrators do a wonderful job of conveying the emotions of these characters.

Dirty Husband

Dirty Husband will keep you on your toes guessing the out come till the very last minute. A little slow the beginning and rushed in the end. It the author did a fantastic job explaining why at the end.

A very entertaining listen definitely worth the credit.

Past hurts can heal

Shepherd is suffering from his past and he feels he has to beat his stepfather at his own game and to do that he needs a wife. The only person he can think of is his former love, Jasmine.

Jasmine needs money to take care of her father. His health is declining quickly and she doesn't have the means to pay for his care. When Shep proposes to her it isn't for love but for both their benefits. Can she do it?

There is so much in this story. No spoilers here but this is an intense love story with past hurts that are hard to heal. It is passionate and well written and I really enjoyed it.

Lance Greenfield and Grace Grant were perfect for these characters. They brought the emotion needed to tell this story.

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review. I recommend this audio book.

love Crystals books but sadly this ones not for me

This is my first ever book that I just DNF! If I’m getting bored from a book I will normally will try to hang on for dear life hoping to find something that will bring the back to life but with this one I just couldn’t do it and chapter 31 was my limit. I have 3hrs and 21mins left from this audiobook but I just can’t. It’s unfair of me to go into detail and spoilt it as I may not like this particular book but others may love it but I didn’t even get any spark, sexual chemistry or intimacy between these two and it just made the sexual interactions feel wrong. I will be returning this for another book

Let this husband steal your heart

Wow. This story will not only grab your heart but your soul. This is not my first Crystal Kassel story . The beauty of this story shows that there is more than one way to suffer abuse.

Shepherd and Jasmine meet up again after years apart, they at one time were a couple . Now when they meet up again Shepherd offers Jasmine a deal , the deal is to become his wife .
Grab this and see do they become one , a wedding . Does Jasmine get her wish , going up on stage .

Both narrators Lance and Grace performance was great. They did this story and Characters great. The tone for the characters were great. Strong , smooth and clear.

Fantastic listen!

Do you ever get over your first love? Shep is in need of a wife, and it has to be his ex, Jasmine. Jasmine is in need of money to help with her father's medical expenses. These two enter a pact that can only lead to one thing. A second chance. But this is not your typical second chance romance. Crystal Kaswell has woven a delicious tale of love, incredible passion and redemption. Jasmine is such a force, very devoted to her father, but she her heart knows what it wants. Can she align her brain with her heart? And will it be in her best interest? You can't help but love Shep. The ultimate bad boy with issues that make you want to help him. But can he be helped? Will this second chance be wasted? It's a great listen.

Lance Greenfield and Grace Grant are amazing narrators, and they bring this story to life. I don't think there could be a better fit for Shep. Greenfield has that bad boy growl, sex appeal and just nails his personality. Grant always finds her target and Jasmine has definite strength to her, but a melting that Grant eases into. They are fantastic together.

A steamy second-chance romance

This is supposed to be an adaptation of Beauty and the Beast and I suppose I can see it. Jasmine is forced to tolerate Shepard because she needs the money to care for her sick father. However, really, Shephard and Jasmine were high school sweethearts so there's a past there. Jasmine broke up with Shepard was an alcoholic. He's not now and he's rich and successful but he has a secret. The secret is not revealed for the majority of the book but I thought it was easy to guess. It made Shepard definitely much more sympathetic to the readers and I was looking forward to them getting their HEA. Note, this is super steamy with sub/dom themes (fanning myself) and it was overall, an enjoyable, fun book. I give it 4.5 stars.

i borrowed the ebook from KU and requested and received the audiobook for review. I really liked Lance and Grace overall. I thought that their voices for the other characters, especially those who were female/male, respectively, were a little unnatural (but still, that has to be the most difficult part of the job) and sometimes I had difficulty determining who was speaking but in general, they did a good job with telling the story.
