Summary: This is what happened...
I met him at the candy store.
He turned and smiled at me and I was surprised enough to smile back. This was not a children's candy store, mind you--this was the kind of place you went to buy expensive imported chocolate truffles for your boss's wife because you felt guilty for having sex with him when you were both at a conference in Milwaukee.
Hypothetically speaking, of course.
I've been hit on plenty of times, mostly by men with little finesse who thought what was between their legs made up for what they lacked between their ears. Sometimes I went home with them anyway, just because it felt good to want and be wanted, even if it was mostly fake.
The problem with wanting is that it's like pouring water into a vase full of stones. It fills you up before you know it, leaving no room for anything else. I don't apologize for who I am or what I've done in--or out--of bed.
I have my job, my house and my life, and for a long time I haven't wanted anything else.
Until Dan. Until now.
Thoughts: Dirty was a book I've been wanting to read ever since I seen it featured in RT Magazine, it's just taken me a while to get around to it.
It took me a while to like the lead, Elle. At times she was frustrating, and the girl definitely has issues. Elle has a bit of a dark past, which really explains why she acts the way she does. Dan on the other hand is at first mysterious, but he's just a really sweet guy and I liked him right away. I did think he was almost too perfect. Although the more I read the more I found myself rooting for him.
Elle and Dan's story is steamy, sexy and at times very dark and heart wrenching. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys Erotic Romance. Some might think that since this is an Erotic story its all sex. But that is really so far from the truth. It has a deep and emotional back story, that might surprise some readers.
Score: 4 Stars
