Is this love or just a game?
Tori Rivera thinks Jamie McCade is rude, arrogant, and worst of all . . . the sexiest man she’s ever laid eyes on. His reputation as a player is almost as legendary as his surfing skills. No matter how her body heats up when he’s around, she’s determined not to be another meaningless hookup.
Jamie McCade always gets what he wants. The sickest wave. The hottest women. And Tori, with her long legs and smart mouth, is definitely the hottest one. He knows Tori wants him—hell, most women do—but she won’t admit it. After months of chasing and one unforgettable kiss, it’s time for Jamie to raise the stakes.
Jamie promises that soon Tori won’t just want him in her bed, she’ll be begging for it-and he might be right. Somehow he’s found the spot in her heart that makes her open up like never before. But with all she knows about his past, can she really trust what’s happening between them? Is Jamie playing for keeps or just playing to win?

I have been dying to read Hit the Spot since I finished Four Letter Word. I was looking forward to not only Jamie and Tori’s story, but the humor and sexiness that J. Daniels writes with.
Hit the Spot was incredible. It was just as witty and sexy as Four Letter Word, but it also had a lot of surprises in store. I thought I knew how Jamie and Legs’ story was going to go down. I was sure cocky Jamie was just going to continue to put the pressure on Legs to hook up with him. What I didn’t expect was the rest of their story. It was so much more than just that. I was surprised by how emotionally packed it was — for both characters. I loved the depth that J. Daniels gave the characters and their romance.
Jamie was just as cocky as I expected him to be, but he wasn’t a jerk. The voice J. Daniels gave him was perfect. It was rough and cocky, yet sweet. His actions and determination throughout the story floored me. He was also utterly sexy. I’ve never been into piercings, but dang! I really loved him.
While Jamie was cocky and sure of himself, Legs was a mess. Her trust had been shattered in Four Letter Word and she was having a hard time recovering from it.Her confusion and self-consciousness was easy to empathize with. I completely understood why she kept putting off Jamie’s advances and why she didn’t want to give into him.
Just like with Four Letter Word, I adored all of the supporting characters. They’re just so much fun! I loved getting to see Syd and Dash again. It was also cool to see all of Syd and Legs’ co-workers. I’m really hoping the series continues and gives us books for all of them. I would especially love to get a story that stars Nate or Stitch!
J. Daniels is one of my very favorite authors I’ve discovered this year. Her books combine the perfect amount of humor, angst and love. I would highly recommend the Dirty Deeds series to new adult romance readers. I absolutely loved both Hit the Spot and Four Letter Word.
Tori slapped the counter and gained everyone’s attention when she started yelling, “I did not run you over, Jamie! Jesus Christ! Quit spreading lies about me!”
“It ain’t lies if it’s true!” I yelled back, glaring at her.
A laugh bubbled in her throat. She tilted her head and stuck her hand on her hip. “Please. I’m sure you’re still able to bang everything with a pulse, as usual, which means you’re fine. Get over it, and grow some balls. I cried less when I watched Bambi the first time.”
“Who’s hungry?” Syd asked nonchalantly, moving behind her friend to round the island and stand near the stove.
I ignored her question because, what the fuck? Grow some balls?
“I gotta pair, babe,” I told Legs, reaching down and palming my shit. “You should know since you’ve been all up on ’em the past nine months.”
She rolled her eyes. “You’re disgusting.”
I felt my mouth twitch.
And that was when, for some fucked up reason, I reverted back to my old ways with Tori Rivera, forgetting all about how much I fucking hated her and instead going full-on, hell-bent determined to get an admission out of that smart-ass mouth.
“You want it,” I countered, tipping my chin up.
She wasn’t expecting that. No more than I was. It threw her off.
Her shoulders pulled back and her lips parted.
Then, maybe to cover her tell, or maybe she didn’t have control over what was flying out of her mouth either, I didn’t know, but she brought her other hand to her hip, glared at me with heat flashing in her eyes, tipped forward, and shot back with attitude, “You want it.”
Well shit. This was new. Legs was challenging me and she was doing it flirting. There was no doubt in my mind.
“Sorry, babe,” I said, keeping the smirk and letting go of my junk. “Not interested. I told you yesterday, I’m done waitin’ around. But you?” I pointed my beer at her. “You’ll be beggin’ for it before the month is up. Just watch.”
“Fat chance,” she snapped. “I wouldn’t sleep with you if my life depended on it.”
“What’s going on right now?” Syd called out, but I wasn’t pausing to answer her.
I smiled at Tori, then gestured between us, explaining, “First one to break and come crawling to the other person for sex, loses.”
“Are you serious?” She laughed, not in amusement but in disbelief.
“Yeah, I’m serious,” I answered.
“You want to bet me that I’ll want to have sex with you before you try and have sex with me?” she questioned, moving her finger between us. “You, the guy who has been hitting on me for nine straight months and has been rejected for nine straight months? You seriously think I’ll not only want to have sex with you, but I’ll beg you for it? Is that what I just heard?”
I nodded slowly. I had this in the bag. “A rule. No fuckin’ anyone unless it’s each other.”
Her eyes bugged.
“And no masturbating either,” I added, raising my beer and using it to gesture. “Since we both know when you do it you’re thinkin’ about me, and if you’re that fuckin’ horny you need to rub one out or you’ll fuckin’ explode, you can come to me, Legs, beg, and I’ll put that fire out for you.”
