I really enjoyed this book and all the characters involved. Both Tourmaline and Virginia were complex characters with deep feeling and emotions and secrets and how they connected was wonderful. I loved seeing how they stood up for each other and believed in each other, and were willing to fight for each other. They had different upbringings but underneath it all there was thread of similarity that bonded them together.
I loved the way the Wardens were so involved in the story and were a central point. I enjoyed Tourmaline exploring her role within the club and learning at what point she was the ‘princess’ and at what point she was a girl who was invisible. Her scattered emotions around the Wardens, her dad and what they really did and didn’t tell her was wonderful to watch.
The best thing about this book for me was the raw edge of attraction that blurred all the lines in the story for me. While both girls had their own missions, they both had a raw need to love and be loved and found it in Cash and Jason. I loved the description of their physical and emotional need from how Jason could flip strong, proud Virginia inside out to Tourmaline’s acceptance of Cash on the back of the bike and scooting closer to wrap her legs around him. There was so many great descriptions associated with these relationships and I loved, loved, loved them.
This book is gritty, edgy and full of feeling and emotion and not to mention great female friendship. 100% recommen
Done Dirt Cheap is a novel about friendship and the girl’s defying the expectations placed upon them. Done Dirt Cheap is a refreshing read in the sense that it offers something a lot of books don’t really offer – an authentic and complex female friendship. Both Tourmaline and Virginia are fully formed, messy, and contradictory female characters. They would seem like unlikely friends, complete polar opposites, but they make it work and while they don’t always get along, they know they need each other and they help each other navigate the complicated and dangerous landscape of their lives.
“We’re friends because when girls – women – are alone in this world, they’re easier to pick off.” …“When girls stick together in this world, they’re harder to pick off.”
One thing I loved about Tourmaline and Virginia is that they subverted the typical female character tropes that we often see in YA. The ‘good girl’ and the ‘bad girl’. Tourmaline has always tried to be likeable and good, but that isn’t who she really is. Tourmaline was placed into her dangerous drug dealing life, it wasn’t one she chose.Read more ›
I’m a huge fan of Sons of Anarchy, so I knew I needed to read this. It definitely had a SoA vibe but I loved the direction it took with its focus on the president’s daughter, her friendships and relationships, and how it feels to be a family member of the club. I loved the setting and how tangled up in everything the girls were. With high-stakes, real danger and romance to root for, this is definitely one to keep an eye out for.
The writing was glorious and flowed beautifully. Lemon's dark atmospheric style puts you right there, pain and adventure in your heart, cruising across the southern landscapes, the heady smell of petrol in the air, and the roar of the bike (!) between your legs. *cough*. :-)
The story of female friendship sits at this books heart, and for me personally, I was so happy to read about two woman who in any other YA book might fall under the title of Bad Girls. These incredible characters were so much more than that - unique & layered with perfect depth that pulled from their own histories with brutal force.
I am so taken with her writing and her story telling, I can't wait to read book 2.
