Dirty Exes ( Liars, Inc #1) by Rachel Van Dyken _ Book Review


Amazon | Goodreads

They’re serving up some red-hot revenge. A sizzling series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel van Dyken.

Blaire has never quite gotten over Jessie Beckett, the ex–NFL star whose kisses were hot enough to ignite the entire Eastern Seaboard. When he chose work over her, Blaire was left brokenhearted. Why else would she have married a skeezy two-timer, just to divorce him less than a year later?

Now Blaire is getting even by becoming one half of Dirty Exes, a PI firm fully committed to humiliating cheating jerks. If only the new jerk she’s been hired to uncover wasn’t Jessie Beckett himself.

Exposing Jessie isn’t going to be easy, especially when she still daydreams about his sexy smile. Further complicating matters is Colin, Jessie’s best friend. He’s gorgeous, a little bit cunning, and willing to help Blaire get the inside scoop on Jessie—for a price.

Now caught between two men—one totally right and the other totally wrong—Blaire will need to decide just how much she’s willing to risk…and whom she’s willing to risk it for.


{I recieved an arc from Netgalley for an honest review}

This one is tough for me to review. I really enjoy Rachel Van Dyken’s writing. However, Dirty Exes fell flat for me in a few ways. The biggest problem for me was the love triangle. I am seriously over them, it’s not exciting or nerve wrecking to find out who the female is going to choose.

Let me talk about the main characters that make up the book. Blair was fabulous, down to earth, and I could totally see myself being friends with her. She has a slight anger issue but with what she’s been through its understandable.

” That was then. This is now. I don’t even recognize that woman anymore. Now I was successful. I was happy. Well, marginally happy. I was single. Independent. Attractive. I was also in a mom bun. And glorified sweats. I straightened my shoulders and kept walking. Just hold your head high and don’t worry about your messy hair or the licorice hanging out of your pocket…”

Next we have the boys. Jessie annoyed the crap out of me. He was a bit pathetic and I didn’t look forward to his POV chapters. He is in his current situation because of his own choices. He made his bed and now he needs to lie in it.


Now Colin 😍 I loved him so much. He was perfect, even if he was slutty in the beginning. Sweet and totally deserving of happiness, he constantly made me swoon.

Colin was like … the typical bad boy with bad intentions on steroids, from his sharp jawline to his pensive stares. I could even get on board with the man bun, which made him look like a struggling actor just one audition away from a role as a Dothraki on Game of Thrones.”


Overall, Dirty Exes just wasn’t my favorite Rachel Van Dyken book. Will I read the next one? Yes because she’s an auto buy author for me and always delivers at least one character in the pages that I love. Blair and Colin saved this story from being a flop for me.
