A smokin’ hot British player…
A jilted girl…
One night of mistaken identity…

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.

*A modern love story inspired by Romeo and Juliet*

**no one dies in the writing of this novel**

my thoughts

Would you believe that FILTHY ENGLISH was my very first Ilsa Madden-Mills book? I know, right? This one was right up my alley for sure! Ilsa’s writing is so fresh, sexy and intense. I can’t wait to discover more of her work. And did you see this cover? Hell, I would one-click based on the cover alone. Whew! So freaking sexy! FILTHY ENGLISH is book two in the series, but it reads like a standalone. Book one is Dirty English, and I plan on purchasing that right away because I need more British Alpha Males in my life right now. And my God, Dax FREAKING Blay? First of all, how SEXY is that name? He sounds like a secret agent! Total hottie alert! Total SWOON alert! He is SO intense and his feelings for Remi are just out of control! He wants her. He knows he’s not good for her, but he can have just a taste right?

“Let go, Remi,” he whispered. “Feel what’s between us. Just one kiss. I promise.”

OMG! He is just downright panty-melting! So, Remi and Dax had three nights of pure passion about three years ago. In those few days, Remi fell hard for the infamous playboy. When their paradise was interrupted, Remi ended up walking away for good. Jump ahead a few years…they are reunited at a masquerade party. A lot has changed and they couldn’t recognize each other behind their masks, but all it takes is one passionate kiss to catapult them back to those few lovely nights that they shared. Remi is in bad place because of her fiancé wanting a break and all…two weeks before the wedding. Dax and Remi never forgot about each other, so it doesn’t take much for them to jump back to old habits. Remi’s free…Dax is free…why not have a little fun, nothing serious of course, because Dax doesn’t do relationships. But they can be friends right? Feelings return and grow deeper than ever. Lines are crossed and there is no going back.

“I want to be so deep inside you that nothing will ever tear us apart,”

Wow! This was such a steamy and emotional read. Clearly these two were just torturing each other and it broke my heart every single time. There were times I wanted to shake some sense into these two. Their hesitancy to just be with one another was stressing me out! I love how FILTHY ENGLISH was inspired by Romeo and Juliet. The author did a great job with some scenes and quotes referring to the tragic love story that we all know and love. It’s safe to say that FILTHY ENGLISH does have a happier ending…a beautiful ending…a hard-fought ending. So, if you like damaged, British alpha men with filthy mouths and big…hearts, FILTHY ENGLISH is the way to go.

quoteWithout 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.”
