Dylan Locke knows that pining over the young ingenue Audrey Lind is pointless. He can’t offer her what she wants. He definitely can’t give her what she needs. Thank goodness she’s half a world away, and he doesn’t have to deal with his attraction head on.

But fate has other plans for him, and when Audrey once again lands in his path, it’s only too easy to fall back into their easy rhythm. And then their easy banter. And of course, each other’s arms.

He tells himself nothing has changed. She still wants forever, and he still thinks tomorrow is long enough. But watching her search isn’t as easy as he thought it would be, and now Dylan must figure out if he’s really the love Scrooge he professes to be or if he’s been Fate’s willing victim all along. 


  • “I dreamed her everywhere around me.”

    By Romance213
    Dylan and Audrey are a sensual and passionate couple who have uncontrollable feelings for each other that cannot be denied. They are as different as night and day, which makes their story that much more intriguing. Audrey is fun, where Dylan is serious, she is sunlight, where he is a foggy night, and Audrey is colorful and vivacious where he is dark and brooding. Their pent up emotions have exploded to the surface and their sexy repartee has given way to a reawakening of the memories they shared of the week they spent together. A chance encounter with Audrey made Dylan realize that he couldn’t live without her and having her near him again was a dream come true. He had been so lonely without her; his mind consumed with thoughts of Audrey every minute of every day but he didn’t do commitments so they would have to remain friends, even if it killed him. Any time with Audrey was priceless because he desperately needed to feel her goodness as it penetrated his cold heart. Every word and sentence that Laurelin Paige wrote to tell the tale of Dylan and Audrey was sensuous, volatile and enticing. It was impossible to stop reading because I was caught up in their swirling emotions and desperate desires. Dylan was a man who kept his true feelings hidden from Audrey, and would rather be alone than admit how he felt about her. Audrey believed that her relationship with Dylan was kismet; written in the stars, destined to be soulmates, together forever, and their journey was filled with heartache and denial, romance and passion. We can only hope that they can figure it out before it is too late.
  • Just. Stop.

    I loved the first two books in the series. I was able to get through the second. These two idiots in this part of the series are absolutely the most annoying characters you can think of. They’re predictable and moody and the ending is beyond eye roll inducing. I’m over it. I could’ve handled two more Donovan and Sabrina books over these two ham heads.
  • Fate finally played its hand.

    I loved the first book in this duet, Sweet Liar. Audrey was all sunshine to Dylan’s cloudy skies. But this book was all Dylan’s POV, and to me it made the book imbalanced. I was annoyed with Dylan’s inner monologues most of the book. Audrey called Dylan a coward, and I wholeheartedly agreed because he was so bitter and cynical from a previous relationship and scared to admit out loud that he had actually fallen in love with her. Audrey got points from me for taking charge of her life! Dylan almost lost her, but Audrey really did drag Dylan into her sunshine! The last section of the book & the happy ending did make up for most of the drawn out cloudy skies!
  • Favorite romance book this year

    A great conclusion to Dylan and Audrey’s story. I enjoyed that it’s told in Dylan’s POV. I enjoyed reading about their journey as they overcome their obstacles and insecurities. A great ending for this duet.
  • Loved!

    I absolutely loved the ending to Dylan and Audrey’s story! I loved Audrey’s tenacity where Dylan was concerned. Dylan is such a nonbeliever in love and relationships and Audrey is the complete opposite. Donovan decided to play a little with fate and put Audrey back in Dylan’s life after a long separation. They decide they don’t have the same goals in life and to just be friends. Does that last? Needless to say they end up having an interesting relationship while Audrey tries to find The One.
  • The “Sweet” conclusion is here!

    By Crystal's Book World
    Sweet Fate is our sweet conclusion to the Dirty Sweet duet. Dylan is still being as stubborn as usual. Audrey is just trying to move on. The only problem? It seems that she cannot move on without Dylan being a constant now that he is back in her life. The chase of a lifetime with these two will have the wheels in you head turning. Will these two finally get their HEA? The chemistry was never the problem. The commitment is frightening. But I only can wonder if Dylan is more afraid of losing the love of his life. If you have read the first book of this duet, you need to find out how their story ends! I loved this duet! A great weekend or late night read!!
  • Meant to Be

    I believe in kismet! You know that, we are exactly where we need to be, philosophy? Audrey is a young 20 something just out of her graduate degree and looking for her career and THE One. Dylan is in his early 40s and has sworn off any relationships. They meet and begin a casual relationship. I say casual only in the way of burning up the bed sheets kind of friends. He is her Professor she is his student and it is steamy. This is book two of the Dirty Sweet Duet. Sweet Liar is book one and a novella of how they came to be a couple. While fate or kismet may have had something to do with them being together, Donovan Kindcade from the Dirty Filthy Rich Men series that is the one making kismet. I am a huge fan of Laurelin Paige. This duet is another winner for me. I definitely recommend.
  • I love this couple!!

    By nikki van horn
    I love Dylan and Audrey. Their story is worth reading. I love how they came together and how she would test him to make him jealous. Dylan is sexy. Audrey goes after what she wants. She is funny, sassy and straight to the point kind of girl. The things she made him go through had me smiling. She was trying to get him to react. He put on a good poker face but inside it was torturing him. Which had me smiling. He thinks he can't love again because what happened before. Audrey wants to find her lover for life. Towards the end I was saying don't let her get away, she is perfect for you. I love how this book came together at the end. Absolutely recommend this book. Recommend reading the first book before reading this one.

    This conclusion of Dylan and Audrey’s story was so good. I love Dylan, he’s sweet in his own way and even though he was reluctant to admit it, he loved her from the beginning. Audrey is such a vibrant person and brought out the best in him. I loved this book!
