Book Review: Coal Miner (Dirty Men #1) by Jenika Snow

Goodreads Synopsis:

JAKOB
I didn’t deserve her, but I desired her regardless. I saw her and wanted her innocence as my own, to mark her so every other man knew she belonged to me. And even though I knew better than to go after her, I wouldn’t stay away.
I couldn’t.
She’d be mine no matter what. Screw the repercussions it might have. Forget the fact I would be corrupting her. Poppy was all I wanted. I was never a patient man when it came to the things I desired.
And Poppy was at the top of that list.

POPPY
I saw the way Jakob looked at me: possessive, needy, territorial. I wanted to be his despite the fact we’d never spoken. He was older than me, had a job that only real men can handle, and still I longed to see him every day when I went to the mines.
I knew that one of these days I wouldn’t be able to stop myself from making it known that he was all I wanted. I was nervous, innocent in all the ways that count to a man like Jakob. But for him—with him—I wanted to try it all.
I wanted to experience what it’s like to get really dirty.

Warning: This is super short, fast, and right to the point. You won’t get any drama here. It’s filthy and hot and leaves nothing to the imagination, but then again, you wouldn’t be here if you wanted it long and drawn out. *wink*

Chick and Brain Rating 3 out of 5

Jenika Snow is able to capture the heart and soul of her characters, but I was unable to connect with these characters as well as her recent stories while also missing the back story that is usually present in her stories as well.

Coal Miner is about a small mining town where everyone, and I mean everyone, knows you. So when Poppy shows interest in her older brothers team member at the mine, Jakob, it is hard for him not to notice. Jakob wants Poppy and he will stop and nothing to make sure he is hers.

There really is nothing new about this story line to make it exceptional. It was a hot and steamy read about the average working man, instead of the usual billionaire or corporate CEO type. I was hoping for something a little bit more. I did not dislike, but I did not love it like some of the other books in this series. It’s a great story, and I would recommend it to anyone that would like a break from the billionaires.

***I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review ***

 

Until Next Time,

 

XOXO
