Real Dirty

Country music's bad boy, Boone Thrasher, takes center stage in New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Meghan March's brand new stand alone Real Dirty Duet! 

I have everything a guy could want—a new single burning up the charts, more money than a simple country boy could spend, and a woman I’m planning to marry. 
Until she doesn’t show up for my proposal. 
The life I thought was so perfect, isn’t. 
The guy who thought he had everything, doesn’t. 
I’ve got my heart on lockdown, but life sends me straight into the path of a mouthy bartender who puts me in my place. 
Now the only place I want to put her is under me.
I thought I was done with love, but maybe I’m just getting started.

Boone & Ripley, 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥5 star

Great way to start a series!!! Country star bad boy Boone and bada$$ bartender Ripley are a match made in heaven. She’s the only woman immune to the fact that he’s a country singer and sees the real him. Boone sees in her something real something unexpected and he’s not willing to give her up. This is a must read!! From the way the meet, to the heartaches from both of them especially from Ripley, to how much she fought trying not to be attracted to him and to him not giving up. Can’t wait to read their conclusion!! 55


Rhett is wonderful5 star

I have loved the Beneath series since i first got my hands on it over a year ago. I waited patiently for this book and it did not disapoint. I am a Rhett fan through and through . Rhett Hennessy was a police officer in a family of police officers and surrounded by police officers, until his whole belief in his family and world collapsed when his brother was killed in the line of duty and his father was fingered as a dirty cop. Next door neighbor, fellow police officer, and best friend, Heath comes back into the picture as does his little sister Ariel. Ariel has had a crush on Rhett since she was a little girl but thought she was never noticed by him because he always ignored her. The pair come back together through tragedy and battle some impressive odds. The chemistry, conversations, and mystery surrounding the pair is enough to keep you flowing through this book. I have yet to be disappointed by any Meghan March book and this one is FANTASTIC.. I was not expecting the twist at the end but man....takes your breath away. I love these characters and am very sad that the Beneath series is over but I am looking forward to reading all of her other books because she is a passionate writer who makes characters with depth and enough compassion to make you want to be apart of their lives. Read this book. I got this book for free in exchange for an honest review. 55


Awesome ending to an amazing series5 star

Well, if that wasn't just perfect! I loved the friends-to-lovers/best friend's sister story. Hennessy is everything I thought he'd be. I absolutely loved Ariel. She is smart, and sweet, and loyal. Even at times when she shouldn't be. This book came with some sexiness, and some suspense. I'm usually not a big reader of suspense books, but I love how Meghan throws in some twists and turns, and a lot of who shot Sam. And the at epilogue. Was. Everything! I want to start over from the beginning! 55


Real quick5 star

This review is going to be quick because I need to get onto the next book! I waited till both books were out because I'm so impatient especially with March books. This is not disappointing. Boone is yum. (I had to throw that in) 55


SOOOOO GOOD!!!5 star

This book is seriously AWESOME!! I couldn't expect any less coming from Meghan. All of her books are so good you can't put them down once you start them and this one was no exception. I don't think I can make it until May 23rd for the second book!! That's way too far away after reading this one...😢 55


Five Sinfully Delicious Stars5 star

This book is so much fun! Meghan March I follow you everywhere. Her writing is always a mix of sexy, passionate, humorous and poignant moments. Boone and Ripley will make you swoon. Their sexual attraction is sinfully delicious. You can’t help but be completely captivated by these two. I just love these duets from Meghan March. Keep ‘em coming! Bring on Real Sexy! 55


LOVED5 star

Super hot, sexy alpha- Check Sassy, gorgeous lady- Check Addictive Storyline- CHECK Real Dirty is the first part of a duet. It features a character we met in earlier books, however, they do not need to be read to enjoy Boone and Ripley's story. I do recommend reading them because they are fabulous books. I COULD NOT PUT REAL DIRTY DOWN! It was so incredibly written, I felt like I was part of the book. It's sexy, fun, and leaves you wanting more. Boone is a dreamy, good 'ol country boy. Ripley is full of spunk and so perfect for Boone. As mentioned before, this is book one of a duet, the second part will be releasing soon, and I can't wait to see Boone and Ripley's finale! 55

Three things I learned...5 star

Three things I learned while reading Real Dirty by Meghan March: For a man who had his life turned upside down from page one, Boone Thatcher is a terrific hero who stays true to himself throughout the whole story. He’s strong-willed, arrogant, and spoiled as only a rock star can be, but he’s equally introspective, thoughtful, and complex. And let’s not forget he’s dirty, delicious and HAWT (translation: Southern for hot). From the moment you first meet her, Ripley is in line for canonization. For someone with such fire and passion stamped on her soul, she manages to not commit justifiable, permanent bodily harm against members of her own family, deck morbid tourists who want nothing more than to cash in on her personal pain, deliver a swift upper cut to sanctimonious professionals…you get the idea. The only time her true self comes out is when she is with her best friend Hope and with Boone. I would never be able to own a pet bird that talks! Get ready to laugh, get ready to swoon, get ready for the southern heat. Honest review in exchange for ARC provided to me by the author 55

My New Favorite Duet! Love Boone & Ripley!5 star

What a power couple these two are! You're in for a real treat, a real dirty treat that is. Ripley is a fierce, beautiful woman with the weight on her shoulders. Trying to hold her own as a bartender, she never imagined her world was about to be turned upside down once Boone walked in the bar. Boone! That man! What you don't realize is there's so much more to him than just a good voice, good looks and a good time. He's got it all. And I want him for me! Even though his heart should be aching, he makes the best out of the situation. The fire between Boone and Ripley is insane. Both have the best come backs, which leaves you hanging on to each and every line. There's a swirl of emotions and each turn there's a new challenge. I am desperately waiting for the next book! I love Meghan March's Dirty Duets. 55

Loved loved loved loved loved! I've been waiting for Boone Thrasher's story!! I knew he'd have a great story!! Holy crap!! Ripley didn't stand a chance! And why would she want to?!?!? She's a smart girl!! She's had a tough past that has made her gun shy towards love and feelings and all that. Until Boone Thrasher, that is! Oh I cannot wait to listen to this on Audible! I just know those voices are going to be perfect!! Now there is a cliffhanger but don't worry, we won't have to wait long for it!! Oh and did I mention that the inspiration behind Boone Thrasher was none other than Brantley Gilbert?!?! You're welcome! Go click. Even if you wait to read it after book 2 comes out, go click now! 55

This book just ROCKED my world!!5 star

Boone F'in Thrasher! Well Holy hell! WOW just WOW! If you are looking for a country bad boy alpha with a mix of a sassy fierce heroine this is a must read book! This book covers it ALL with a swoon factor of 10++++! Chem factor OFF THE CHARTS!!! 55


4.5 stars!4 star

4.5 star rating here! Meghan March is back at it again with one of her delicious duets that fail to disappoint. Let's cut to the chase and put it out there that this book ends in a cliffhanger. No surprise there. It's a Duet Series and that's just how some of the magic of Meghan March works. The second book/conclusion will be ready to grace your kindles before you can really get upset about it. Now, moving on to the sexy stuff....... And by sexy, I'm referring to Boone Thrasher. Boone is about to have it all. He's got the talent. He has the fame. He has the success that comes with being country music's "IT" guy. And he's about to make his life complete as he prepares to propose to the woman he loves, in the most public way possible. But when the unexpected happens and the world is there to see, Boone lands himself at a dive bar with a plan to drink until he's numb. Ripley Fischer is a fighter. She fights to keep her family's bar open, even if it isn't appreciated by her undeserving father. She fights to be independent and she fights to keep a pieces of her past her own. But the latest thing she finds herself fighting is the instant attraction she has when she sets her eyes on Boone Thrasher. He's a celebrity and Ripley doesn't do celebrity anything. With Boone feeling raw and Ripley's sass at a level 10, the attraction is there but the challenge is on. She says no. He hears otherwise. I love when the sexy Alpha male in Boone shows up. The words that come out of this man's mouth.....are the words that any woman would want to hear. And the sex scenes back it all up, specifically for your reading pleasure. Add to that that he has this need to protect Riley, to help her is perfect. But what I love even that Riley is smart enough to let him. The chemistry between these two packs a punch. The dialogue is steamy, funny and keeps you hooked. You have characters you will love and some, not so much. But most importantly, their story will keep you coming back for more. I can't wait to see what is up next for my favorite bartender and country music star. Bring it Meghan March..bring it on!! 45


Worth the read Sugar!4 star

This was a good and fast read. I knew I liked Boone from the other Dirty books but OMG something about him just had a smirk on my face the entire time I read. I did not think being called Sugar could sound so sexy! I feel like just as the book was getting really good it ended with a cliffhanger. I can't wait to read the conclusion of Ripley and Boone. 45


Boone and Ripley rock!5 star

I absolutely loved Boone and Ripley! Boone is a country star jilted by his girlfriend. Ripley is running her family bar and will date absolutely no one famous. Then Boone walks into her bar. This book has everything! An alpha hero, a sassy heroine, and even a foul mouthed parrot! 5 stars 55


Take me Home, Country Boy!5 star

Boone Thrasher can take me home any time! Love this couple and can not wait for the conclusion. Boone is a rock star, okay a country star, but he’s a star. Ripley is never going down that fangirl path, not for anyone, even if he can potentially help her business. Fate has other plans. Not a traditional boy meets girl, fall in love story but that’s not how Ms. March writes them. We love the angst, we love the back story, we love the chemistry and we definitely love us the alpha male who is Boone! But he’s just a good old-fashioned ,down home, momma’s boy who happens to be a star! And he is after Riley!!!! 55


Swoon for BOONE!!!5 star

Wow!!! Boone made me Swoon. What an amazing read, full on Swoon fest went on here. Meghan has the sexiest men I swear. Boone and Ripley will steal your heart in this one. She's a tough, stubborn, feisty independent female with tons of SASS and it's hard not to want to be her. She freaking rocks. I love her character so much. There's just something about a strong female. I may even have a girl crush on her. I just feel like I can see her and she feels real to me. That is what I love about Meghan's writing. It all feels so real. Boone what can I say, he is sex on a stick, he's got way with words that's for sure. He's arrogant with a side of cocky, he's so sure of himself and everything around him but not so much so that it gets on your nerves, it's actually really hot. He's protective and how do I say this? Sweet when he wants to be. He's the definition of all man. His character is everything a sexy singer should be and then some. I love the way this slowly burns, the anticipation of what's next when these to are in a room is like fire. They kept me BURNING from page to page. "She's going to be as HOT as fire, and god help me, but I don't care if we both burn." Their chemistry is off the charts. Their sex is hot hot hot. Their flirtatious banter will have you giggling. Back to the SEX, it will have your body heating with the hottest of flames. I absolutely hands down love these characters more than any other of Meghan's. Esteban I want him. lol he's a flipping riot, I can't even with him right now. Ha what a hoot. You want this book and the next trust me. It's one of the best stories I've read this year. I couldn't stop turning the pages. I devoured it in one sitting. It left me burning for more. The perfect sexy romance. Thank Meghan for another scrumptious story. 55



A studly, take-charge country star plus a hot mess, take-no-crap bartender = off-the-charts YOWZA. Meghan March brings the heat with Boone and Ripley in the first book of the Dirty Duet. Ripley was a delightfully complex character with real problems, big dreams, and an unmatched sassy attitude--the perfect match for a country star bad boy with charm a mile wide and an irresistible alpha streak to boot. I love a few good heated headbutts between characters before the tension boils over, and March delivers fabulously with these two. And that ending... Real Sexy can't get here fast enough! 55


Fantastic!!5 star

Real Dirty is one of those books you won't be able to put down. It couldn't have a more fitting title because let's face it, Boone Thrasher is as real as they come and he is hot and sexy and definitely knows how to get down and dirty. He will leave you fanning yourself. I love the stubborn streak that makes up Ripley and I love how Boone goes to toe to toe with her. Their chemistry is off the charts. I am beyond ready for the conclusion of their story in Real Sexy! This is most definitely a five star read for me! 55


Real Dirty is super HOT!5 star

What can I say? Who doesn't love the idea of a hot, alpha country music singer?? Boone will make you SWOON and Ripley is is such a strong and mouthy one. Get this book today and you will fall in love with Boone. Don't wait!! I can't wait to read book 2. 55
