Filthy English by Ilsa Madden-Mills with Review
A smokin’ hot British player…
A jilted girl…
One night of mistaken identity…
*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.
Filthy English by Ilsa Madden-Mills
POV first person (dual)
First let me start off by saying this can be read as a stand-alone, however I highly recommend reading Dirty English first. It's a great read (I literally couldn't put down) and you get an introduction to Dax Blay. You get an insight into his behavior and a little of his character. It will come up in the current read and I think it helps you understand a little more about Remi's perception of Dax.
Now, with that being said…
Remi is on her much anticipated honeymoon with her best friend, Lulu. Not with the man she thought she would be. Lulu wants to make sure Remi makes the best of this trip, and not moping in her room. At Club Masquerade, she runs into the last person in the world she ever expected, Dax Blay. She's traveled to another continent across the Atlantic. What is a boy from her small town university doing in the exact club at this time? Well fate is a funny bitch.
I love these "second chance" romances.
Remi has had her heart shredded more than once and she has a hard time taking unreasonable risks anymore. She went the safe route with her ex-fiancé and still gets her heart broken. So why would she give Dax a second chance to crush her, especially when he's not even ready for a second chance.
Dax has his own demons that only his brother can relate to. So it's easier to be the campus "man-Whore", than to actual have feeling that are more than superficial. Dax is a genuinely nice guy, but can come off as a douchebag.
The sexual tension between these two is palpable. Neither wants to risk their heart but with time and a lot of tequila, windows begin to open.
Not only do I love these characters and their journey together, but I also loved the secondary characters. Remi's bestie Lulu and Dax's cousin Spider are a hilarious addition and help relieve some of the drama. I suspect (at least hope), that these two will get their own story in the "English" series.
Ilsa Madden-Mills is a great author and can construct stories you don't want to put down. She has not disappointed in this Series and Story.
