    Not only did this book never get interesting, not even half-way through, but the feminist in me forced me to give this a one-star. I'm not going to like a book with a heroine who easily lets her life revolve around two men, (the hero and her father...) then still ends up giving up her dreams and career for one of them... It made me sad.

    HOLY HELL. I loved this book. While reading romance novels is my favorite thing of all time, my second obsession is politics. I hate it, but like bad reality TV, I can’t seem to look away. I do tend to shy away from political romances just to avoid being pissed off, but there have been a few authors who can write this theme and stay on point with the story – not letting their personal views come into play. In Dirty Work, our Hero, Jude is a war hero who is tired of the way our government is being HOLY HELL. I loved this book.

I do tend to shy away from political romances just to avoid being pissed off, but there have been a few authors who can write this theme and stay on point with the story – not letting their personal views come into play. In Dirty Work, our Hero, Jude is a war hero who is tired of the way our government is being run. Tired of career politicians keeping their pockets fat while forgetting that they are there to serve the people. He’s not political, but he’s ready to step into the arena and make a difference. Reagan has been groomed from the start for politics. With her father soon retiring she is ready to take his place. This was supposed to be a slam dunk. She was a shoe it to win the senate seat, she never expected a newbie candidate to change the entire game. From page one I was in love. I had this feeling that I would just love this book. I was hooked and although I was forced to put it down and sleep, the first thing I did when I got home was to kick off my shoes and grab my Kindle. I just had to know what happened next. The chemistry between Jude and Reagan was off the charts. He was such a charmer and while she was a bit uptight, I loved seeing how he ruffled her feathers and broke her free from the chains of being responsible. The banter was perfect, the texting... I LOVE THIS IN BOOKS. I have no idea why, but I love it. Balancing the public image, the hidden moments when they were able to get lost in each other and then the hurt that comes when you have to play the part of candidate and gain momentum in the polls. There were so many aspects of this story that could have allowed these two authors to take the easy road. There were drama-bombs EVERYWHERE just waiting to be detonated. But I loved that they allowed the story to go the way they did – I loved how honorable Jude was and I loved watching Reagan trust him, even when she had some doubt. Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert have a huge hit on their hands with Dirty Work. And yes, it is a standalone novel – although I want more of these two and I wouldn’t turn down a chance to read more from these two. If you want a hot summer romance, this is your book. Even if politics is not your thing, these two handled it perfectly. #TrustInTitan

    When I picked this one up I expected a sexy story about two rivals sneaking around, what I actually got was a soppy disappointment. Don't get me wrong, I like a man to chase, to be obsessed and commit to claiming his prize/woman, but here, it lacked any Umph. The first 30% was decent. There was some good sexual tension. 40 - 75% was rather boring, it dragged. 75% - 90% it got better again because some drama was introduced. Overall this was just okay for me.

    Being a Virginia gal born and raised in the DC suburbs, I could not help but live and breathe politics—whether I wanted to or not. I could not ignore the parties of red and blue even if I wanted to. Being near the nation’s capital, politics was served for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It was everywhere! While I don’t follow politics much and would not be called a fan, the political romance I gobbled up from Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert made me want to parade into the political pool with Being a Virginia gal born and raised in the DC suburbs, I could not help but live and breathe politics—whether I wanted to or not. I could not ignore the parties of red and blue even if I wanted to. Being near the nation’s capital, politics was served for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It was everywhere! While I don’t follow politics much and would not be called a fan, the political romance I gobbled up from Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert made me want to parade into the political pool with pom-poms as Dirty Work is that POWERFUL and PERFECT!!! I dug into Dirty Work with a deep hunger, a story where I expected to flame with desire. What I did not prepare for was the assault on my heart where it was pounded into pieces. Dirty Work is deliciously dirty, fabulously flirty, fierce, and full of feels. Pulse pounding. Body blazing. Feelings flaring. I was utterly consumed and captivated from beginning to end. Reagan Preston is calm, cool, collected, and beautiful. She is the daughter of Senator Preston, set to retire, and she is set on moving up the political ladder from Representative to Senator. Reagan’s opponent, a political virgin, is the panty-melting, power-wielding, former Marine veteran, Jude Titan who is fierce and fiery. Titan is correct as this man is big in all the right places. Both are armed in battle to become the next Senator of Illinois. I love how Reagan’s lady balls are willing and ready to do some busting. "I’m eager for him to see that I can bust balls with the best of them. Jude Titan can bring it on. I’m ready.” Jude, a former military man, is making me swoon everywhere. He is a proud veteran and representative of everything not political and I love that part best. "Reagan Preston’s about to find out Marines always fight to win, no matter the cost.” When the gorgeous gal and guy meet, it’s a firestorm as lethal as the hardest-fought political debate. Jude dishes the dirty in Dirty Work. "God, the way her calves look when she sits with her legs crossed. I can almost fel them squeeze my head like a vise when I’m licking her.” Holy mother of hotness! Reagan is distracted by everything Titan. "My libido was in overdrive as I spoke to him, torn between staring at his inked, muscled forearms and his intense, dark brown eyes. He’s got swagger in spades, and it’s really sexy.” Red versus blue. Fire versus ice. Titan vs. Preston. Only one candidate will win and both are prepared to fight this battle until the end. "I need to remind myself that we’re not friends. We’ll never be friends. She’s the enemy. Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer? The Godfather may be right.” Closer is what chemistry has planned for this captivating couple where the pull, like politics, is too fire-hot and strong to resist. "We’re not friends. We’re nothing.” "But the way you kissed me back, we’re something, whether you’ll admit it to yourself or not.” The race is heating up where the heart is on fire along with the poll numbers. Lines are blurred. Feelings are flowing in a cloud of confusion. Politics versus love. Only one race will generate a winner. Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert made me fall in love with politics—especially as an Independent—even if fictional. Dirty Work is THE WINNER in the race for romance! If only politics could be as poignant and powerful as in Dirty Work. Politics that please the people. A Washington where blue and red bleed into purple with both main parties and players working in harmony rather than tearing each other apart. I LOVED these authors’ version of politics that united rather than divided and what America should be in spades. Power play. Sex. Scandal. Lies. Corruption. Villains. Heroes. Passion and power permeated through the pages, banter blazed fire, and love threatened everything. Dirty Work felt like a guilty pleasure; it became my dirty little secret. I left this achingly-addictive and alluring story that stole my heart WANTING MORE. NEEDING more. Hoping for more Dirty Work as I don’t think this romantic race is over. 5 red and blue beautiful and brilliant stars

    I find it hard to resist a book that involves a politician at its forefront. I blame it on my Scandal addiction. So when I read the blurb and figured out this was about two politicians... I couldn't say no. I enjoyed this story. I did, so don't let those three stars make you think differently. It's just that part of me wasn't super happy with the turn of events towards the end. It could be that my inner feminist hackles were up, but I wasn't thrilled with Reagan becoming the assist rather than I find it hard to resist a book that involves a politician at its forefront.

It's more stubborn and unyielding than any of us will ever be. Once it takes hold, all we can do is give in. That right there rings true with me. I loved how surreptitiously these two, Jude and Reagan, carried on their affair. I loved their texts, their phone calls, and every single one of their face-to-face interactions. Their love grew in an authentic way and aside from the drama that came from Reagan's family, their love was easy. I haven't read much from Chelle Bliss or Brenda Rothert, but this story makes me want to read more.

    I abhor political discussions. Yes, I pay attention. Yes, I vote. But I will not discuss politics openly—religion either.

However, two politicians I adore are Jude Titan and Reagan Preston. They’re on opposite sides of the political fence. Reagan a liberal democrat. Jude a conservative republican. They’re both gunning to be the next Senator from Illinois. But one thing they can agree on is their undeniable attraction to each other. Now to figure out how to be together when, at the end of the day, one of them is going to be the winner and the other not. I was immediately immersed in the world of Illinois senatorial campaigning from the very first page, and didn’t emerge until I swiped the last page on my Kindle. And even then I didn’t want to leave. I loved both Jude and Reagan. Both trying to make the world a better place. Both wanting to win, but not at the expense of the other. Every stolen moment between Jude and Reagan had me rooting for them to make it. I loved their flirty texts, their über sexy times when they were actually together. I hated that one of them was going to be on the losing end and I was desperate to somehow figure out how they could both win the election! Crazy right? Yeah, I’m quite crazy over these two characters. I couldn’t get enough and I’m hoping there will be more to their story soon, please. ~ Missy, 5 stars

    "Better to lose with honor than win with deceit." I was thrilled to learn that two of my favorite authors had decided to collaborate and write a book together. I knew there was no chance of it not being incredible. I found it intriguing to see if I could figure out who wrote what, but I confess, it was very smooth and seamless. It was just a whole lotta awesome. I found the subject to be very interesting. While I'm not very knowledgeable about politics, I've seen a few steamy episodes of "Better to lose with honor than win with deceit."

I found it intriguing to see if I could figure out who wrote what, but I confess, it was very smooth and seamless. It was just a whole lotta awesome. I found the subject to be very interesting. While I'm not very knowledgeable about politics, I've seen a few steamy episodes of Scandal on TV. After seeing the cover of Dirty Work, my mental image of Jude as I read had me drooling...those tattooed forearms...sigh. And that was not the only reason I needed a hanky. Nope, there were several. And yes, one of them was tears. I connected on an emotional level and I was touched to tears on several occasions. It's not all fluff, there is substance too. I was educated and entertained. Jude is a war hero. He's not a career politician, he's just an honorable man that wants to make a difference. With his movie star good looks the women flock to him and want him to kiss more than their babies. He has to walk a fine line to keep the media from using his bachelor status and his appeal to the female population from overshadowing the real topics he wants to be known for. It's a good thing he has his Campaign Manager, Carl, right? It's always good to have someone to steer you in the right direction when there are road blocks in your path, right? Reagan is career politician. She was raised in the lifestyle and has been groomed for office. Making her father proud is very important to her and she pushes herself to succeed. Fortunately she is surrounded by people that support her. Her best friend, Lexi, is by her side, there for her every step of the way. She's a very colorful character that I really enjoyed. And then there are others...who aren't there for her. It was page turning suspenseful journey on the campaign trail as I anticipated the outcome of the election. I was mentally evaluating every situation and trying to guess who was really on the team, and who had ulterior motives. The sexual tension between Jude and Reagan was electric as they fought their feelings for each other. The sparks flew during their debates in public, and in private. And let me tell you, they found very creative ways to communicate (wink-wink).

The people of the great state of Illinois welcomed home their hero, and it’s because of them that he’s running for Congress. #TrustTitan But there’s a problem. His opponent, Reagan Preston, is a temptation he can’t afford. Reagan Preston grew up in politics, groomed from an early age to carry on the family tradition. She’s in the biggest fight of her life against the golden boy, Jude Titan. It’s an uphill battle against one of the most eligible bachelors in Chicago, but she’s ready. With the backing of her family and friends, her campaign is a force to be reckoned with. #PurePreston What starts out as a fight for the ages turns into an attraction so intense they’ll both risk ruin for it. #PoliticsIsFilthy #DirtyWork Review: “‘When I kissed you, we were just two people sitting on a bench and in the moment. I wasn’t Jude Titan, your opposition. Just a guy and a girl acting on the attraction we both feel.’” 5 political stars!! Addicting and sexy!! Jude Titan has decided after serving in the military to run for Congress in his home state of Illinois. He has no political background, but he’s tired of seeing the direction politics is going, so he wants to throw his hat into the ring, and his fans all accept him. Reagan has grown up in the political field and she’s ready to take her father’s spot, now that he’s retiring… she’s the shoe-in. But now with Jude trying to take her spot, she has to fight him for it. And while these two fight for the top spot, they also have to fight the growing feelings they are starting to have for each other…. So who’s the real winner? I loved the relationship between Jude and Reagan. I loved that he had a way to get under her skin, she was slightly uptight but it worked for her. The wittiness between these two had me laughing at times, and the passion, Oh God, the passion!!! I’m not much of a politics reader, but this book worked for me!!

    I had a hard time deciding how to rate this book. I usually try not to let my (political) views influence my rating. But this is a book about politics so I feel kinda justified. Also, my enjoyment of this book majorly suffered because it goes against everything I stand for as feminist. The writing was okay. It didn’t suck me in but it also didn‘t want to make me bleach my eyes out. I had much bigger problems with the story. If you don‘t like spoilers, you better stop reading this review now.

It didn’t suck me in but it also didn‘t want to make me bleach my eyes out. I had much bigger problems with the story. If you don‘t like spoilers, you better stop reading this review now. I can‘t do this without spoiling the end. In the beginning, Reagan is a strong heroine who is determined to win the elections to fight for her believes. She wanted to make her home state a better place to live, do something for the people in Illinois. She wanted to win the election on her own without the help of her seasoned senator father. She did not once let the reader believe that she was kinda pushed into the whole political circus. So yeah, I was definitely disappointed by her actions in the end. Her opponent in the race for the Senate is a veteran and that‘s all there really is to him. All his campaign focuses on is that he is a veteran and not a „career politician“ (because everyone in politics is crooked, right?). We get it, you are a veteran and want to help fellow veterans. You don‘t have to repeat that every time you open your damn mouth. You should stand for other issues as well on this political level! He wants Reagan to drop out of the elections because, naturally, his stances are far more important than hers. If I haven‘t made it clear enough I was not a fan of the hero. I especially hated how Reagan turned out to be a puppet of her father and the hero. She drops out of the race for the Senate because she never really wanted to run in the first place and only did run to please her father (why would a woman be interested in politics anyways?) and joins her boyfriend on his campaign and starts working for him after winning the seat in the Senate to spite her father. This was a big no for me!

The authors did an unbelievable job with the chemistry in this one, the reader truly feels the pull between Jude and Reagan, their banter is epic; them being torn about the circumstances they find themselves in was so well done! Dirty Work is a book about adults, adults pursuing their passions, adults both thinking they know what they want out of life, until someone unexpectedly comes crashing into their world. The struggle in this one is so real, opponents, political opponents in a race for a Senate seat with an attraction they both feel to their core. This book is laced with heat and friendship and a desire to do the right thing. The dual POV this book was told in really added to the story; a story where readers experience debates between the two candidates, the texts between these two as they develop a friendship, sneaking around as they become more, and stolen moments as they become lovers! This book has so many great lines, which plays perfectly for individuals who are running for office! “You don’t hate me. You hate how much you want me.” Such a perfect book for an election year and it had me wishing real politicians believed this line by Jude: "Better to lose with honor than win with deceit." The secret that is exposed rocks Reagan to her core; I loved how this played out, it so true to what we often see in politics but her reaction to it made me love her even more. Reagan remains true to who she is and is determined to do the right thing even if it will cost her everything! Nope not telling read the book! The end of this book warmed by heart and though early on it seemed impossible, I think in the end both candidates get what they want “to make difference.”

    As someone who lives in New Zealand, our elections don't really cause as much interest as you see the American elections and more often than not over here we read so much more of American Politics that we can become invested as I have to admit and you can hate me if you want - but if I was over in America , I would personally be voting for Hilary Clinton and not Donald Trump - everything about him screams a joke and if he does get in , then it will be to me the equivalent when a dog was As someone who lives in New Zealand, our elections don't really cause as much interest as you see the American elections and more often than not over here we read so much more of American Politics that we can become invested as I have to admit and you can hate me if you want - but if I was over in America , I would personally be voting for Hilary Clinton and not Donald Trump - everything about him screams a joke and if he does get in , then it will be to me the equivalent when a dog was registered on the New Zealand MP elections and got in or the time that a new religion called The Macaroni Church was introduced to New Zealand. In saying that, so books with a Political theme have always been a favourite and yes, I am also a fan of the TV show Madam Secretary. In Dirty Work which is co-authored by one of my favourite authors Chelle Bliss along with a newcomer for me Brenda Rothert we meet two opposing parties who are both running for their seat on the Senate and whomever gets in will become the next Senator. In one corner we have retired Marine and War Hero Jude Titan and in the other corner we have Regan Preston - daughter of current Senator Preston. Each have come from a different background as Jude has no prior knowledge of politics and Regan has grown up in a strong Political family which made her running the next ideal step in her career and life. As the two go along the campaign trails , we start to notice some chemistry flaring up between the two and they start to move from enemies to frenemies as they discover that the other isn't really bad away from the public view. Can Regan and Jude move into a relationship or at least a forbidden romance or will their goals, ambitions and political views get in the way of their happiness together ? Find out in this awesome Political novel and the first in the series Filthy Politics by Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert.

    I just finished Dirty Work by Chelle Bliss & Brenda Rothert and loved it! It was my first political romance and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved it. Not because of the writers, no I love Chelles books but I was surprised that I liked the politics in the book. With the real election campaigns in full swing it was fun to read about a off limits sexy love story about two opposing candidates.

Dirty Work was a bit of a slow burn, waiting on these two to finally take the plunge felt like it took forever. In a good way. I like that you got to see them flirt with a healthy dose of sexual tension between the couple. I liked the texting and banter between Jude and Reagan. Both characters were honest making me wish we had someone like them in our country for real. Once to couple came together it was the perfect balance of steam and sweetness. I love these types of stories. Not all books need a bad boy sometimes it's nice to have a good guy finish last. I recommend this one if you're in the mood for something sweet with not too much drama. I was given this ARC for my honest opinion.

With you, everything is so much more. Reagan hasn’t changed me, except to make me a better man. My Review: Two swoon-worthy political opponents meet while battling each other on the campaign trail and feel an instant attraction that they clandestinely explore, indulge, and hide from even their own staffers. The thrill of the forbidden, unearthing deeply hidden secrets, dirty political tricks, and the risk of being exposed to their voting public all add to the mix. Was the budding relationship and teasing just for campaign trail thrills or could it be more? Can either candidate be trusted - or are they just playing each other? Remarks are made that could be used either way. The premise of Dirty Work was relevant and timely. The writing was engaging and entertaining as well as deliciously steamy, but the characters were the best part of this piece – they were well drawn, realistic, alluring, endearing, and people I would want to know.

    When texting and trying to goad each one should not insult Jude's manly bits, he goes offensive, "I do NOT have a small ***k. Would u like a ***k pic right now?" Jude sometimes has to show his woman he means business, "he squeezes my ***, molding our bodies together until I feel his erection against my lower belly. “Does this feel serious to you?” I loved this book, Jude was a great guy, and he was entertaining.

    Once a long time ago, when I worked for a powerful man that headed his corporation we sat and discussed politics and disagreed on one thing about politicians. I made an observation that they were all individuals that wanted power and that lead to corruption. Now that I am older, I realize that there are exceptions and Dirty Work is based on that good guys getting a position to help us little people.

I made an observation that they were all individuals that wanted power and that lead to corruption. Now that I am older, I realize that there are exceptions and Dirty Work is based on that good guys getting a position to help us little people. Jude Titan is a military hero with high ideals when he enters the Senate race as a Republican from Illinois, a strong Democratic state. His opponent is Regan Preston and she is running for the Senate seat that her father is retiring from. What neither Regan or Jude expected was to meet and expect to be enemies but find they like each other and are drawn to each other and romance blooms. The campaign managers try to make it Dirty Work as usual in politics but Regan and Jude rise above the revelations about her family and the false ones about his service record to find a happy ending where they learn to work together for the people.

    This seemed like a fun premise and I was curious to see how the story would resolve with people who are crossing the aisle and crossing body parts lolol Reagan and Jude were interesting characters. Reagan is like a Kennedy - comes from a political family and is expected to carry on the family legacy. Jude is a newbie...think John McCain when he first joined politics...war hero who is trying to make a change. It was cute and I liked their banter. I also liked the sex scenes.

The story did feel a little rushed. It was like I blinked and it was over. There things that happened but it didn't really happen to the MCs. It happened to people they cared about so we see their reactions and how they are impacted but there was no real conflict they were working toward together. Two things annoyed me: (view spoiler)[ Reagan threw her career away pretty easily. Perhaps she was looking for a way out so the scandal worked in her favor. I also feel like she would have gotten eaten alive in DC so it works out that she didn't win lol (hide spoiler)] is and the other point is I would rate both of them as independents or moderates who I couldn't pinpoint which party they were a part of. I think that's actually good (I wish it were this way in real life) but it also made the story kind of unfathomable. Overall a fun, sexy romp. I'm curious to explore some more work by this author.

    Political romance is my jam. This one was well written and fun. Political rivals, forbidden, sexy, slow burn. The tension was so great. But once they finally have sex it was a bit anticlimactic. Still really enjoyed it!

Dirty Work is a political romance, which I must admit is not normally my thing. I am not one for politics at all. But this book completely worked for me. I fell in the love with the characters and let me tell you, the sexual tension between them was off the charts. Dirty Work is a romance between two people who shouldn’t even like each other. They are enemies, both running against each other for the position of State Senator. Any relationship between the two of them should be off limits, but what should be and what really happens aren't always the same. Jude Titan is a war hero who is now running for Senate. He wants to try to make a difference and help out his fellow war veterans at the same time. He is tired of how the government runs things and wants to step in and change things. He is looked up to by many, very easy on the eyes, loyal but at the same time cocky and a bit domineering. But people love him and what he stands for. Even his opponent cannot stop thinking about him. Reagan Preston grew up in the world of politics, her father being the former Senator. It is now her time to take over and follow in her father’s footsteps. She has worked hard to get to this point and cannot let her father or the people down. But Jude Titan proves to be a very tough opponent. For one the people love him but he also seems to know how to get under her skin, in more ways than one. There is no denying the chemistry between the two of them. They seem to be a distraction for each other, not being able to get the other off of their mind. But there is no way that either one of them can give into the feelings that they have. It will ruin their careers and both of them have worked so hard to get where they are. Will they take the risk and give into their feelings? What I loved about this book is the connection between the two characters. Jude knew how to push Reagan’s buttons, while flirting with her at the same time. There was so much sexual tension between the two of them that you were just waiting for them to finally give in, to watch it all explode. Jude was a very good guy. He was loyal, sweet, caring and sexy as hell. But what I loved was his dedication, and not just to the election but to what he had with Regan as well. Reagan was a great heroine. In ways I felt for her because it seemed like a lot of what she did was for her father. She wasn’t being true to herself or what she really wanted in life. But I loved that Jude helped her to in a way find herself and see who she really was. She was sweet and I loved the flirtatious banter between her and Jude. They were so good together and I just wanted to see them be able to tell the world how they really felt. This book was a great read. It was fun, flirty and had it’s share of drama. What would any political election be without a scandal, without truths coming out that could hurt people. And trust me this book has those moments. Truths were revealed which caused drama and left you wondering how it would all play out. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see how it would all end. Would Jude and Regan make it? Would the secrets that came out end both of their careers and their relationships? You have to read to find out. I have read all of Brenda Rothert's books but this is the first book that I have read by Chelle Bliss. I hope we get to see more of this writing duo in the future.

    I was so excited to read this book! I've been a fan of Chelle Bliss from before the Men of Inked se series. This was so different from anything she has ever written and I know this is a collaboration but it was phenomenal. The characters were fun and the banter between them was sexy and infuriating and frustrating but it just made the story so much more interesting. The story actually released during this time when all the political crap is going on TV it was really refreshing to read something I was so excited to read this book!

The characters were fun and the banter between them was sexy and infuriating and frustrating but it just made the story so much more interesting. The story actually released during this time when all the political crap is going on TV it was really refreshing to read something that is nothing like that. I love that he was so down to earth and real and sexy. He was definitely described as one hot ass guy. he stood up for everything he believed in and even though they were supposed to be sworn enemies the magnetic sexual hole between them definitely killed that idea. I mean it's really hard for two people that are physically attracted to each other to be in the situation is that they were put in and not want to jump each other's minds you know. Regan was a sassy little thing that packed a big punch. she grew up in political family so she was like the person that was supposed to have the most experience and totally on top of her game but she had not met Jude Titan yet. My favorite thing about reading is that she cussed like a sailor and I mean that's really who she was even though she would have to stand up and give the best speeches or go out to the public and meet them you know at the end of the day she cussed like a sailor. I think honestly with politicians or any type of person that is in the public eye I think the public forgets that they are human and basically when it comes to these two it is pure human animalistic magnetic attraction that fuses them I mean that's on the surface there's a lot of things that work a lot more Define and beneath the surface for both of them and they ended up being each other's Saving Grace pretty much there should not be any doubt in your mind after you read the reviews the blurb about this book for you not to one click it because you'll love it plain and simple you will love this story. I started this book and went from 0 to 45% and like a couple hours and the only reason why I didn't get a hundred percent is because my eyes closed on their own behalf unbenounced to my mind because I was so not ready for that. This story just grabs you and sucks you in II like a tornado right and you can not stop it's like Pringles once you pop you can't stop just buy the damn book
