Review: Getting Dirty with the CEO by Mia Sosa



gettingdirtywiththeceo-final-cover Blurb: Sometimes you have to get a little dirty to get what you want . . .

Publicist Mimi Pennington is at the top of her game. She’s savvy, hard-working, and eager to move up the corporate ladder. So when her boss tells her that in order to make partner she has to land a prestigious account, Mimi meets the challenge head on. Never mind that the prospective client is Daniel Vargas, the polished and pompous player who rejected her months ago.

Mimi hasn’t given Daniel the time of day since their one fateful encounter, and while business has brought them back together, pleasure is what he has in mind. She says she’s not interested in giving him a second chance, but Daniel is prepared to call her bluff. All he needs is one week. One week to test her rules and prove that he’s exactly the kind of man she needs . . .


Mimi Pennington is a force to be reckoned with. She knows what she wants and she’s determined not to live the life her mother has – being totally dependent on a man who disrespects her. Her father is selfish and chauvinistic, and thanks to the fact that she never held a job, her mother has no choice but to deal with his uncaring ways…that is, if she intends to maintain her lifestyle.

Daniel Vargas has also worked hard to get where he is. He, too, knows what he wants, and he’s not afraid to go after it…or her in this case. He’s always been attracted to Mimi. Not just her beauty, but her intelligence and strength.

Their exchanges are feisty and fun from the start. Mimi has some misconceptions about Daniel, and he’s very well aware of them. However, one thing I really liked about him was that he didn’t go out of his way to try to prove himself. He was subtle and patient. He didn’t anger easily, and he was also aware that there was more to her rejection. I enjoyed the way the relationship unfolded. They were true to themselves and very straightforward. In an effort to protect herself, Mimi did try to minimize her feelings for Daniel, but as soon as he called her on it, her behavior improved. She meant no harm, but he still needed to let her know he deserved better. getting-dirty-fb-teaser-_3

I got hooked on this group with One Night With the CEO, and this was a well-received addition to the series. I was happy to revisit Mark and Karen. Sosa has a way with dialogue. I can easily imagine each scene, and her stories are never boggled down with too much information. The prologue was an outstanding set-up. I connected to each character and was anxious to see how they’d finally end up together. The story is light and laid-back. Not too much drama, nor is it too thin. Daniel is an absolute dream and I so crushed on him.

Find a comfy spot, grab a snack, and silence the cell phone.

Rating system: Cups of Coffee (the less the better)

0: You won’t need any coffee to stay up for this one. It’s intriguing enough all on its own.
1: You’ll stay up late, but not all night. Brew one cup.
2: You’ll read as long as you’re not tired. If you are, two cups should do the trick.
3: I hope you got plenty of rest; you’ll need it, or at least 3 cups.
4: If the cable goes out, read the book. It’s better than nothing, I guess. Oh, don’t forget your brew!
5: Find anything else to do- it doesn’t matter what it is. Don’t waste your coffee. Too much caffeine is bad for you.

My rating: 0 cups of coffee
