Join Tara, better known as DJ DisDiva, and her best friend, Shazza, on a clubbing tour across the UK. Tara is living the champagne lifestyle as London’s hottest female DJ, producer and sound engineer. Her weeks are spent in the studio and her weekends spent clubbing it up, being paid for the pleasure. She is signed to one of the UK’s biggest record labels after the owner, Pops, takes pity on a down and out college student. One with a bad attitude, nothing but the clothes on her back and a head full of dreams of one day being the best DJ on the scene.
I think it’s safe to say, after a turbulent battle to the top, Tara deserves her time to shine. And shine she does, until her world gets thrown into a spin when Pops hires Dominic Clayton to manage the Xtreem radio station. He wastes no time in mixing things up and making his mark on the label.
Dominic’s reputation rivals even Tara’s and she knows there’s a good reason her best friend keeps warning her to avoid the sexy, yet arrogant, bastard. But how much can you avoid someone when you have to work with them? When they seem to show up everywhere you go. With a cocky smirk and devastatingly sexy green eyes, there is only so much temptation a girl can withstand before caving in and dancing with the devil. The only problem is, everyone knows, mixing business with pleasure is always a bad idea.
Tara (a.k.a. Dis Diva) is currently living large, having risen through the ranks to be one of the most requested DJs in London. With her BFF, Shazza, at her side, they’re taking the world by storm. But their world gets turned upside down when Tara’s mentor and father-figure, Pops, hires his soon-to-be stepson, Dominic, to manage their station. They’ve heard of him and his bad reputation and want nothing to do with him. Sparks fly though when Tara and Dom first lock eyes on each other and bad reputation or not, she wants him. But with that single glance, Tara’s security quickly falls apart as relationships, friendships and loyalties are tested.
DISRESPECTFUL DIVA is part of the DJ series but it can be read as a stand-alone. You meet the couple from the previous book, but the events from their book have no impact on this one. It’s told mostly in Tara’s POV with a portion or two being told in Dom’s POV. The language is a little hard to get used to and I think anyone not English or Australian might have a problem understanding some of the words and phrases. The drama between Tara, Shazza and Dom was a little too bitchy for my liking and I didn’t like Tara’s bad attitude towards Dom, all because she liked him when she didn’t want to. If I was Dom, I would have given up and moved on. He’s a patient man that’s for sure. As you know, almost all romance novels have their major conflict right near the end, where it then gets resolved quickly and then BAM!!! Book over. But not so in DISRESPECTFUL DIVA. The major conflict between Tara and Dom happens around the 50% mark, was then resolved in a believable timeframe, after which the story moved on until we get our ultimate HEA. I thought that was really unique and I liked it a lot.
