ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date September 11, 2017
I’ve discovered Donovan Kincaid’s secret.
It’s dirty and filthy and rich – as dirty and filthy and rich as he is – and it haunts me as much as he ever did.
Even after knowing what I know now, I still want to talk to him, to touch him. But there’s an ocean between us, and I’m not sure it can be crossed with something as easy as a phone call or a plane ride.
Yet I’m willing to try.
He doesn’t know this yet, but this time I’m the one with the power. And maybe – just maybe – if the air were cleared and all our secrets bared, there could still be a chance for us.
And this dirty, filthy thing between us might end up being love after all.
REVIEW: DIRTY FILTHY RICH LOVE is the second installment in Laurelin Paige’s contemporary, adult DIRTY erotic, romance duet focusing on billionaire businessman Donovan Kincaid, and PA Sabrina Lind. DIRTY FILTHY RICH LOVE should not be read as a stand alone as it picks up immediately upon the events of book one Dirty Filthy Rich Men.
NOTE: DIRTY FILTHY RICH MEN contains scenes of sexual assault, fantasy rape and aggressive sex, and may not be suitable for all readers.
Told from first person point of view (Sabrina Lind) DIRTY FILTHY RICH LOVE looks at the dysfunctional relationship between PA Sabrina Lind, and billionaire businessman Donovan Kincaid- a relationship built upon ten years of lies, obsession and a mutual kink between consenting adults that may not be everyone’s sexual fantasy.
Donovan’s obsession with Sabrina Lind borders on the psychotic- love is a term that cannot be applied to Donovan’s need for control, as his preoccupation with our heroine was disturbing and wrong. Sabrina’s entire adult life had been a lie, and with this revelation our heroine struggles with her attraction to the man who had controlled every aspect of her life- both personally and professionally –for close to ten years. DIRTY FILTHY RICH LOVE focuses on the back and forth, push and pull of a relationship distorted by one man’s need for power and control.
DIRTY FILTHY RICH LOVE is a well written and engaging story line but I struggle with labeling Donovan’s actions. I am probably in the minority but what others saw as passion, protective, love and seductive, I saw something disturbing, obsessive, over the top, and dangerous. In the real world, there are laws to protect victims from the what, why and how of Donovan Kincaid; DIRTY FILTHY RICH LOVE redefines and changes the boundaries of obsession, romanticizing that which would otherwise be dangerous and out of control. The premise is startling; the romance is controversial and intense; the characters are damaged, bold and alive. DIRTY FILTHY RICH LOVE’s rush to the finish was a little disconcerting; Sabrina’s need for Donovan Kincaid is the perfect complement to our hero’s questionable nature and the justification of his actions as protection and love.

In 2013, Laurelin Paige self-published her first novel. Her husband was just laid off, she had three kids, one with special needs, and they had just filed for bankruptcy so she needed this novel to work. Less than 1 year later, her debut novel, Fixed on You, was at the top of the bestseller lists and was named one of the top ten selling books of 2014 by Publishers Weekly (the only self-published book to do so) and a Top Ten Favorite Read of 2014 by People Magazine. Her successive self-published novels have been smash hits with readers.
Laurelin Paige is the NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of the Fixed Trilogy. She’s a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters.
