Review: Filthy English

Filthy English Filthy English by Ilsa Madden-Mills
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


***received ARC from author in exchange for an honest review.

Dax is me, just in male form. We are both sarcastic, remote, brutally honest, and have a sense of weird, if not filthy humor. And while there are elements of Remi to my personality as well (I can be soft, strong, emotional, and I have major OCD), I so identified more with Dax's character in this story. He broke my heart at times, he made me want to punch him at other times. But I always came back to his past and how that shaped him - much the same way my past has shaped me.

He's been hurt and since then he's tried so hard to not let anyone have that kind of power over him again. However, our best laid plans never quite work out that way. He never saw Remi coming and when she did, she busted down his carefully constructed walls and saw the little boy inside the man. Hard as she tried to draw him out, he just pushed back until she was gone... or was she?

I'm still reeling from this book. It made me laugh out loud, it made me ugly cry, it frustrated me, it threw sh*t in my face about my own life and how I was behaving. It forced me, must as it forced Dax to wake up to the beauty that is, the friendships we have, and the once in a lifetime love we should hold onto and never let go of.

Simply said, I guess you would call that as having #AllTheFeels . This book has them, in spades!

I now need to read the first book in this series (I don't know how I skipped over it!) and add this book to my list of #MustReReads
