I’m so excited to be a part of the blog tour for Dirty Deeds by Megan Erickson! I have an interview with Megan on the blog today, as well as my review and a fantastic tour giveaway!
Author Interview: Megan Erickson
What was your favorite part about writing Dirty Deeds?
I loved writing the scenes where I got to have the whole crew together. I loved writing the girls’ night out and backyard barbecue scenes.
What made you decide on writing a hot British businessman as the hero for Alex?
You know, I wanted someone not like her in any way. I didn’t want her to fall for another mechanic. I wanted to get her out of her comfort zone so she could see what she had to offer.
What makes Alex and Spencer different from your previous main characters?
They are both really honest. I think I liked that the most. They were upfront with each other every step of the way.
Which book was your favorite to write in the Mechanics of Love series?
DIRTY TALK. Brent was a really easy character for me to write. I loved being in his head.
Will we be getting a story about Davis? Or Delilah? I love their characters!
I’m not ruling it out! And thank you, I love them too!
What are you currently working on?
Currently, I’m finishing up the fourth book in my Gamers series with Entangled Brazen. And I have a bunch of side projects I’m sorting out. I’m excited for 2016.
Megan Erickson knows how to write contemporary romance! The Mechanics of Love series is the first I’ve read by her, and it won’t be the last. I’ve enjoyed each one of the books in the series immensely – Dirty Talk is still my favorite, but Dirty Deeds, the third and latest book, is one that definitely lived up to my expectations. It’s a book full of heart and humor, with touching characters that can’t help but endear themselves to your heart.
I’d been so excited about Alex’s story since Dirty Talk – as a female mechanic who’s sworn off men, she’s a memorable character. Her last relationship almost ruined her family, so when she and her sister and niece got away from her abusive ex, she was determined not to let any man in. She gives off this tough, sassy, badass persona, but deep down, she’s also a woman who gives her whole heart to those she loves. She may have given her heart to someone who abused it in the past, but ever since she’s met the Paytons, she’s opened up once again. But the one who really breaks down her walls is a one-night-stand she never expects to see again.
Spencer’s eyes were wild as he took her in. “I’m the luckiest man in the world to be here right now.”
Her heart ached, because they would be only this, a screw in a bed, a fuck against a wall. Quick, dirty deeds that would never have a future. Oh well, she’d make the most of it.
Though the past two books in the series have been about some HOT mechanics, I have to say that this one British businessman was definitely able to keep up with the previous heroes. Spencer was only supposed to be Tory for a little while for his job, so his one night – the hottest night of his life – with Alex was only supposed to be just that. But when his job forces him to go back to Tory and see Alex again and again, Spencer can’t help wanting her more and more… except that his stay in Tory is once again only temporary.
“…you love to love, Alex. And you love to be loved. And you deserve it. You deserve it all.”
I adored Alex and Spencer together. The two of them are the kind of characters who have walls around their hearts, and I loved seeing the two of them break down their walls and let in love. They make such a great couple, and the chemistry between this is seriously hot. If you’re a fan of the series, you definitely don’t want to miss Dirty Deeds.
I’m desperately hoping there will be more in this series, especially a book about Davis or Delilah (or the both of them together). I seriously can’t get enough of all of these characters! And the Paytons, I just love them all so much, especially Brent. All of their interactions with each other leave me with a smile on my face. If you love your romances with the perfect balance of humor and sweet, touching moments, then you definitely need to get your hands on this series!
