Dirty Deeds is the second book in the Dirty Angels Trilogy and can be read as a standalone. While not as dark as Dirty Angels, it still contains content which may be disturbing to sensitive readers.
As a flight attendant, Alana Bernal has had her share of suitors. She’s also had more than her fair share of tragedy within her messed-up family. But what she hasn’t had is love. Real, rip-your-heart-out, tear-your-clothes-off, all-consuming love.
At least that was the case until she met an American tourist, Derek Conway, a ripped ex-soldier with steely eyes and a commanding presence.
What started as a chance encounter between the two in Puerto Vallarta, a weekend full of hot sex and mindless passion, has led to something more.
Because Derek isn’t the type of man to fall in love. He’s not a man who sticks around.
And he’s definitely not in Mexico on vacation.
Derek is a mercenary, a killer-for-hire, a man who does the ugly jobs for the highest bidder.
Unfortunately for Alana and Derek, the highest bidder has the power to destroy whatever worlds they have created for themselves.
The highest bidder can destroy everything.

#3 – Dirty Promises (coming Sept 15, 2015)
We’re back with the Mexican cartels. Only this time, we’re in the position of the hitman and his target. In Dirty Angels we heard mention of Derek Conway. We never got to meet him. And we also got a phone conversation with Alana Bernal, Javi’s sister. Well, someone’s put a hit on Alana’s life and they were using Derek to do the job. Only one problem. Derek didn’t feel right about the job, and after seeing her and meeting her, he couldn’t do the job. But that didn’t stop the fiends from trying to take her out just the same.
I can’t and won’t really go into this story’s details. It would give too much away. I will say that though this truly can be read as a standalone, I would recommend reading Dirty Angels first. Because there’s things that happen there and people who are in that book that really make an impact in this one. And I am sure all these two books will culminate in the next book coming out soon Dirty Promises. This is a dark story, but not as dark as the first book. And though Derek has done some bad things, at heart he’s not a bad man.
Ms. Halle has made the already complicated world of her Mexican cartels even more complicated. I’m really chomping at the bit trying to figure out just how this will turn out, because lies don’t lay hidden forever. They have a funny way of resurfacing. There’s murder, mayhem, intrigue and down right betrayal going on in this story. And it promises to get darker before it gets light. So would I recommend this book. Yes I would. Would I be sure that the person reading it was aware of how bad it gets. Yeah, because some people don’t like it dark. This is not one for the young or faint of heart.
