A poem by Blaire Leon

If sex is dirty, why would I do it with someone I love?
If sex is dirty, then didn’t we all come from the dirt?
What if I like the dirt?
What if I want to get dirty?
What if I want to roll in the mud until I’m so fucking filthy that I’ll never be clean again?

When twenty-five-year-old graduate assistant Caiden Brenner asked Blaire Leon how old she was, she said she was a senior. He chose to believe she meant in college. They connect over Lord Byron’s Don Juan and, as their conversations become increasingly thicker with sexual innuendo, Caiden finds himself obsessing over a totally off-limits undergrad who’s bold, beautiful, brilliant, and one of the most passionate poets he’s ever met.

But it turns out Blaire hasn't been totally honest. She's the seventeen-year-old valedictorian of her high school class, taking courses at Sierra State while awaiting her acceptance to Stanford.

Will Caiden get too deeply into Blaire to back away before he finds out the truth? Or will their connection be enough to seduce him into risking his entire future on Jail Bait?

"A thousand and one feels....Getting Dirty is a thrilling, tantalizing forbidden romance you do not want to miss! I not only devoured this book, it devoured me right back!"--Katy Evans, New York Times Bestselling author of REAL

Mia Storm’s debut novel Getting Dirty, wasn't exactly what I was expecting. I mean I knew the relationship was taboo not only due to the age difference, but also the student/ teacher factor. Honestly, I was thinking it was going to be more on the erotic side, but hands down I liked this version just as much.

16 year old Blaire Leon is what I would like to call an old soul, causing her not to fit in with people her age. She’s a very intelligent high school senior granting her the opportunity to take courses at the local college. While studying in the library she notices a cutie and she doesn't have to put much effort into getting the attention of Caden Brenner.

Caden Brenner is a 25 year old teacher assistant for the course she’s currently taking.Going in he not only did he not know Blaire was 16, but that she was still in high school. Outside of the tidbit of info Caden still has a few reasons as to why he’s hesitated about pursuing Blaire. He has his own issues going on in his life and having any improper relationship with a student would just add more to his list of problems. Unfortunately, sometimes one cannot control who you’re attracted to. It take a few innuendos over studying and stolen glances in the library before things to progress.

The whole age difference being wrong and unacceptable - I get it and I understand. I also feel conflicted. For many personals reasons.I think most of it is how things are handled. I’m sure they could've kept things hushed for a little while longer, but the way these two went about doing things was completely reckless.

Everything about Getting Dirty felt very realistic and authentic. I felt for both of them as to how things went down. How things actually became messy and dirty. The highs and lows.The rights, the wrongs, and the maybes. It made this one very hard to put down, its also one of those stories take makes you analyze the rules of society.

There were a few things that I didn’t care for like Blaire’s relationship with her brothers best friend if you could call it that. Another thing that I didn’t care for was the fact that her parents were too busy in their lives to notice things going on with their daughter’s life. The most disappointing part was that most of the devastating events happened under their roof.

Overall Getting Dirty was an awesome read and I cannot wait to indulge more of Mia Storm’s work.
