A scarred fighter.
A girl with rules.
One night of unbridled passion.
There are three things you need to know about Elizabeth Bennett: she’s smart as a whip, always in control, and lives by a set of carefully crafted rules. She’s learned the hard way that people you love the most always hurt you in the end.
But then she meets Declan Blay, the new neighbor at her apartment complex.
A tattooed British street fighter, he’s the campus bad boy she’s supposed to avoid, but when he saves her from a frat party gone bad, all her rules about sex and love fly out the window.
She gives him one night of unbridled passion, but he longs for more.
With only a cardboard-thin wall separating their bedrooms, he dreams of possessing the vulnerable girl next door forever.
One night. Two damaged hearts. The passion of a lifetime.
I have been in a terrible reading slump before reading Dirty English and I have read Ilsa’s books before so I had some expectations on what I was delving into and had hope that this would be the book to get me out of the slump. And it was.
I loved reading Dirty English, the spicy sexiness that the characters had, the drive to be better and of course the love we get going on within the pages. And according to many other fabulous readers, this book takes a twist with Pride and Prejudice, a novel that I hate to admit I have yet to read. While this book has some things that pertain to the book, you don’t have to read Pride and Prejudice (though you probably should later on) and continue to enjoy the book as I did.
My favorite part about the book as a whole was the slow, kindling romance. Obviously from the premise we know that they are attracted to one another, pretty much off the bat and there’s nothing wrong with that. Elizabeth and Declan try to fight it but its difficult when you live next to each other and continue to learn things about one another that almost no one else knows. Secrets fly, attracting becomes something so much more and then one night brings it all together. I liked that even though the couple got what most look for in one night stands, they continue to fall for one another and that makes it work for me. That had me keep reading and yearn for the HEA I wanted so badly.
Declan, though he may look too badass and a type of guy you would steer clear of was indeed badass and a type of guy you should steer clear of but all he need was love. That made me melt because I know everyone wants love, everyone wants a reason to breathe and I knew that Elizabeth was his reason. Elizabeth was an interesting character with a not so good past that she was always on the run from. I’m glad that when she was with Declan she didn’t need to think about anything other than him, her worries were forgotten and she was free – even for a little while.
Basically my heart was a pile of goop as I read this book and I hope that if you, dear reader, happen to come across this book your heart will be goop and Ilsa Madden-Mills’ books will then be on your TBR forever.
Thank you readers for reading and thank you TRSoRProductions for the ARC and letting me be apart of this tour. Hope I persuaded you all to get this book and if you do (hopefully) come back and discuss it with me further!
