Filthy English by Ilsa Madden-Mills ~ Book Tour & Giveaway
A smokin’ hot British player…
A jilted girl…
One night of mistaken identity…
★★ NOW LIVE★★
*A modern love story inspired by Romeo and Juliet*
Two weeks before her wedding, Remi Montague’s fiancé drops her faster than a drunken sorority girl in stilettos. Armed with her best friend and a bottle of tequila, she hops a plane to London to drown her sorrows before fall semester begins at Whitman University.
She didn’t plan on attending a masquerade party.
She sure didn’t plan on waking up next to the British bad boy who broke her heart three years ago—the devastatingly handsome and naked Dax Blay. Furthermore, she has no clue how they acquired matching tattoos.
Once back at Whitman together, they endeavor to pretend they never had their night of unbridled passion in London.
But that’s damn hard to do when you live in the same house…
One night. Two damaged hearts. The passion of a lifetime.
Without much thought except for comfort, instinctively I pressed myself against him, fitting into his arms as easy as breathing. He leaned against the brick wall of the neighboring building and wrapped me up, sensing my need to be grounded.
I don’t know how long we stood like that—maybe a minute, maybe five—but soon our breaths were in sync; the rise and fall of his chest in perfect accord with mine.
One of his hands traced down my spine and then up. He outlined my shoulder blades with his fingertips. His hands drifted to my hips then caressed back up to my hair, massaging my scalp.
But what had started as an innocent hug changed.
Fire licked my skin everywhere he touched. Of their own accord, my hands slid down to his waist and teased the line where his jeans rested on his hips. I went further, my fingers toying with the V at his hip until I felt him harden against me.
Lips brushed the top of my hair. “Remi . . . look at me,” he said, his voice raspy.
If you look up, you’re going to kiss him . . .
I tilted my head up and his mouth fused with mine in an instant.
Insistent. Wild. Hot. Yes! This is what I needed.
I groaned, and my hands rushed to his shoulders and dug in.
He was wrong—terribly wrong—for me, but it felt so right.
I felt wonderfully alive, revved up, as if I could crush a car with my bare hands, or push Dax against the wall and fuck him senseless. I recognized the feeling for what it was—an I almost-died-and-now-I-want-to-experience-life feeling.
“Wait,” he breathed as I ran my hand under his shirt. “It’s adrenaline. You’ve been through a trauma. You don’t really want this—”
“Shhh.” I lifted his shirt and kissed his chest, my tongue flicking over his nipple. “You taste like every good thing I’ve ever wanted.”
His taut restraint snapped, and he swayed into me. “God, I can’t tell you no.”
I have become a real sucker for second-chance romances. There is just something about them that fills me with such hope and fills that sappy part of my heart with joy. Ilsa Madden-Mills’ Filthy English was such a perfect second-chance romance, and I loved that they were still young, in college.
Remi is in London with her best friend doing her best to live it up and appreciate this trip. After all, it was supposed to be her honeymoon. That is until her fiance broke it off two weeks before the wedding. Needless to say when she walks into a masquerade party in London, tequila is her new best friend… but maybe it shouldn’t be! Tequila has her falling in the lap of Dax Blay (if you read Dirty English, you will remember him as Declan’s brother).So now you are thinking… how could this be bad? Sexy, accent, tattooed, chemistry – sounds pretty perfect to me! Oh yeah… there was that time they spent a hot and heavy weekend together, where they were inseparable – only for it to end with a broken heart.
This book hit all of my high marks. I didn’t want to put it down once I started. Remi and Dax are both clearly attracted to each other but they carry a ton of baggage. And not just because they haven’t been able to get each other out of their minds for the last 3 years. I adore broken characters – not because I want them to hurt but because we all have broken pieces to us. So for me, I like to read about people who overcome something and find their love – it just feels more real to me. Yes you may want to scream at them YOU BELONG TOGETHER! JUST DO IT ALREADY! But really, do we ever do anything the easy way? What would be the fun in that? They needed to take the long way, work through their issues so they could come together beautifully.
The characters were written beautifully so that you want to jump in the story and become friends with them. I mean really, Remi is strong and caring. And Dax, aside from the hotness factor, watching him with Remi’s brother just melted my heart.
While this is the second book in the series it truly is a complete standalone. You will see characters that you know, but you will have no problem following anything or falling for the characters if you start here.
I definitely recomend Filthy English. If you love second-chance romances with heat, passion, heartbreak and ultimately a love that conquers all then you don’t want to miss out on Dax and Remi!
I received a complimentary copy of Filthy English in exchange for my honest review.
