Publisher's Summary

A Navy SEAL who wants seclusion. A diva who craves the spotlight. The deal they make could give them both what they need...if they don’t kill each other first! Reality TV has never been so hot!

Navy SEAL Clay "Dirtman" Hagan's retirement plans are simple. Buy the dilapidated beachfront cottage he found listed for a song, fix it up, and live out his days in solitude. Everything is set until an anonymous bidder drives up the price of his future paradise.

TV talk show host Tasha Jones is flying high, until one word—canceled—sends her crashing. Now she's looking to resurrect her career with a new home renovation show if they can get around the buyer standing in the way of the perfect property.

When the competition turns out to be the obnoxious a-hole from her embarrassing drunken one-night stand, the battle for the property really heats up as the insults - and the sparks - fly. The producer notices the chemistry between them and decides the viewers will too, and Hot House is born.

If Clay agrees to have the self-centered star and her cameras in his house for the duration of the show, he walks away as the owner in the end. If Tasha can put up with living in the bungalow with the Neanderthal control freak during the construction, she gets a hit show and her career back. Win-win.

It shouldn't be too hard since the director loves when they argue on camera, which is good since they agree on nothing. Well, almost nothing. They do both agree that they pretty much hate each other and neither one wants a repeat of their one night together.... So why does it keep happening?

Another winner by this author

You can never go wrong with a story by this author and this one proves my point.
Retirement has come to Clay/Dirtman Hagan and he’s ready for his beachfront home. With his biggest concerns being , fixing it up, and enjoying his new lifestyle.
Tasha Jones is a tv personality in a home improvement show. But when things go haywire and is about to lose her show , she’s determined to redeem herself.
Fate pairs them up and boy do the sparks fly.
It was a funny and at times touching story.
Definitely another winner for the author.
Last but not least, the narration by Sean Posvistak brought the story to life.

I chuckled through most of this book

I loved the chemistry between two completely different people, looking for two completely different things in life.
Clay has his military retirement planned out only to get blindsided. Tasha's career gets derailed which leaves her devastated and worried about her future.
Throw them together and you get a funny, light hearted story filled with agitation and a touch of sadness. Not to mention the over the top hot and steamy desire!
When Clay opens up to Tasha about the loss of his military friend, I think that is the turning point towards lovers from enemies.
Loved this book from beginning to end. The narrator, Mr. Posvistak did an excellent job expressing Clay's anxiety. I could almost feel it.

Looking forward to this Series (Standalone)

I received this audiobook free for an honest review as a member of Pink Flamingo Productions Review Team. This was a terrific book. Loved the tension between Tasha and Clay. The premise of this story was a very creative idea of the author's. The author did a great job of keeping the listener's/reader's attention from beginning to end and kept me laughing throughout. Very cute and enjoyable romance. The narrator did a great job with the characters and their personalities. I don't usually like a male trying to narrate the part of a female, but Sean Posvistak did a great job. Looking forward to more in the SEALS in Paradise Series.

Genre: Romance, enemies to lovers, comedy, military (SEAL), Reality TV

4.5/5

Hot SEAL, Dirty Martini is the first book I've read by Cat Johnson (I think) and it was a lot of fun. The audio version narrated by Sean Posvistak was a riot. You could tell he was having a ton of fun. It was a little over the top at times and definitely entertaining. I liked the personality clashes between Clay and Tasha and the epilogue was great. I'll definitely be exploring more of this series and this author.

I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsession. This is my honest and voluntary review.

laugh out loud

Put one Navy seal with one ex talk show host on a home remodeling reality show together? Cameras 24/7 for a month in the house. It's chaos, fun, fights, sexual tension, just what producers want. The longer they're together the more the sexual temptation they have.. This is a Hot steamy romance. The Hot House Tv show lives up to it's name.
John Posvistak narration is very good. I enjoyed listening to this story.🎧audiobookobsessionreviewer🎧

Interesting Concept

#AudiobookObsession

This is my second book from this author and narrator. The narrator had me melting like he did on the last book I listened to that he narrated. The story itself was an interesting concept. First book dealing with reality TV I ever read or listened to. Not sure if I will again but I definitely want to hear more from Mr. Posvistak.

A hilariously good tale to listen to!

I loved this! It was totally laugh out loud funny with quips that kept me giggling even afterwards. Tasha and Clay had a chemistry that made for some seriously good humour that this narrator portrays really well. His tone of voice and the way he drags or speeds up through the narrative made for some seriously good listening that made my journey to and from work go by in a flash. So much so that I was almost disappointed this had to come to an end but I really hope there are more like it as it made for great audio.

Hilarious, Hot, & Amazing! Personally, I love ene

Personally, I love enemies to lovers romance, Hot SEAL, Dirty Martini, definitely delivered. The icing on the cake was the humour and delightful characters. Clay aka Dirtman is ready for retirement at his fixer-upper beachfront cottage. Then comes along, Tasha Jones, a TV host personality, out to redeem her self with a home-reno show. Both are on a collision course, and when they do collide, sparks fly, whether they like it or not. I just loved the witty dialogue and the red-hot chemistry, they were literally on fire. Of the Hot SEAL series, Dirty Martini is unquestionably my favourite and the most memorable, with great laugh-out-loud moments.

The narration by Sean Posvistak is superb, his portrayal of the characters and infections were spot-on. I genuinely enjoyed Dirty Martini, it was hilarious, steamy, and the characters were utterly fabulous. I'm definitely recommending this audiobook.

dirty n diva

I enjoyed this story of Clay n Tasha. It's a great enemies to lovers story. He is retired from seals. She loses her job. They find each other in the bar drinking. She thinks they had a one night stand.
A new show is being filmed. The house he wants to buy is being driven up in price by the show.
in order to get his house he must agree to film the renovation. when 2 hot heads collide at hot house there is sponteous combustion.

I enjoyed Sean's narration of this story.

Enemies to lovers with a reality TV twist

Clay wants to buy a specific house for his retirement. Tasha is a TV personality who is desperate for a new show now that she was let go of her prior show. She has the opportunity to do a reality tv show about renovating a house, Clay's retirement home. Sparks fly and not always the good ones because Clay was really mean in the beginning and it was a little difficult to see how the romantic feelings evolved just because he was so mean in the beginning. But there is chemistry and there were some fun situations given they were in a reality tv show situation. I enjoyed the book overall and especially because i listened to the audiobook and really liked Sean Posvistak's narration. He narrates multiple Cat Johnson books and he has such a great voice to play a slightly comedic role. He also does really well with the different voices, including female voices. I liked the 3 books i've now listened with him narrating.

Stand alone story

This is the first book I've listened to in the SEALs in Paradise series, though I have listened to some of the Hot SEALs series by Cat Johnson. It can be read/listened to as a stand alone. The notes I jotted down for the review were "steamy" and "entertaining". I liked the characters and will listen to more of the series.

The narration by Sean Posvistak was great. He brought a lot of energy to his performance.

Hot listen

I started this story and finished it in a day. This listen will suck you in till the end . This story has it all , love , mystery and action

Hero is Clay. Heroine is Tasha.

Tasha loves the spotlight from Hollywood. Mean while Clay is the complete opposite. Clay wants to live a quite life in his house by the see. Grab it and see what happens when the two meet and the different attitude, their outlook on life .

The performance of Sean Posvistak was good first time I heard him

Thank you Audio book obsession for a great listen

funny!

Don't listen when in public!! People will look at you funny when you randomly burst out laughing for no reason. This book was highly entertaining and a ton of fun. I love the author and the narrator. The two combined made for an unforgettable story that I know I will listen to again when I needed something fun.

Fabulously funny

I loved the humour in this! It was seriously funny and had me laughing in my car while listening to the book! The Narrator is great and adds to the humour by using his voice for dramatic effect that creates mood and just adds to the story!
Clay is an ex-Seal trying to buy a house but is being outbid by a production company who wants it for a reality show, so he agrees to co-host the show with the girl who was almost a one night stand on the day she was told her previous show was cancelled! This leads to all sorts of heated sparks that makes for good television but not for a good living companion. All this so he can have his house!!
A good, funny read/listen that had me in stitches

Good Listen

Clay is a retired Seal who just wants to buy his house and be left alone. Tasha is trying to figure out what to do after her show is cancelled. A new TV show wants to have her host while a house is being remodeled. They want Clay's house and he has to sign on to do the show to get his house. This story shows their relationship growth through hiding from the cameras and mics in the house. Good entertaining story.
