She’s dirty and ugly.
He’s wicked but handsome.
Six months to toy with her.
Six months of vacation and a ton of money.
I’ll hurt her beyond repair.
I’ve been through much worse.
She’s difficult to control and doesn’t obey.
I’m done submitting to anyone or anything in this life.
I should hate her.
I should hate him.
The game has changed.
I will win.
Dirty Ugly Toy is a novel that blurs the lines of right and wrong, deals with abuse, contains dubious consent, and adult subject matter. If you are sensitive to violent sexual situations, the book may not be suitable for you. Some parts of this book are not easy to read and are not intended for everyone. However, those that keep an open mind and stick with it will not be disappointed.
“I want to escape from this world. To go and go and go until I run off the page of the infinite universe. TO crawl around in the never-ending, quiet blank nothingness. My own personal heaven. My escape from Hell.”
Wow! I don’t even know where to start with this review. My mine is a complete and utter mess. I am emotionally drained and exhausted from the ride that I just went on. When I first started reading this story, I had no idea what I was about to get myself into. And that’s one of the things I love most about K. Webster’s books. I never know what I’m going to get and I love it. I am constantly surprised and in awe of this author’s writing range.
What can I say about Dirty Ugly Toy? Well, the title kinda speaks for itself. You should expect the unexpected and go into this story blind like I did. Dirty Ugly Toy is dark, gritty, and sexy. It will take you on an intense and intriguing ride. It pulls you in from the very first page and practically dares you to put it down.
When we first meet up with Braxton, I was intrigued. He’s rich and powerful, but he has twisted tastes and desires. He likes to find broken women and fixes them up and plays with his “toys” until he no longer has a use for them. In the search for a new “toy”, Braxton finds Jessica. At first, he thinks she is just like the others and can not wait to break and use her. But, all too quickly, he finds out that Jessica is nothing like the others. Jessica is strong and determined. She doesn’t mind the rough side of Braxton and welcomes his inner sadist. This response only serves to confuse Braxton. He finds himself questioning everything. What will happen when Braxton finally realizes that Jessica is nothing like the others? Will Braxton be willing to change his sadistic ways? Will these two lost souls get their HEA?
Gosh, I don’t even know what to say. This book. It is so different than anything that I’ve read by K. Webster before. She took me on a dark journey, that I wasn’t so sure was going to have any light. These characters are both broken and lost. You can’t help yourself from wanting to know more about them and wanting to know why they are the way that they are. There were moments when I hated and I mean loathed Brax, but then he would do something sweet; something normal and I would find myself hoping that he could change. I desperately wanted him to redeem himself and become the man that I knew he could be.
Dirty Ugly Toy will take you on an unexpected journey, with lots of twists and turns. This story will shock you. It will frustrate you. It may even make you want to throw your kindle across the room. But, in the very next breathe, you will find your heart aching and hoping that things will change. With lines like this: “He is my savior–he pulled me from the wreckage that was my life. I’m not losing him without a fight. I will fight for Braxton Kennedy. Even if it means fighting against him to have him. I’ll make him mine.” and “You’re the sun that warms both inside and out. The world was way too fucking cold before you stepped into it.”, you just really want to root for these two lost souls, no matter how twisted their situation is. And in the end, you’ll find yourself on the edge of your seat, just waiting to see what will happen next, just as I was.
Once again, K. Webster has knocked it out of the park. She has taken me for a journey to the dark side and really made me fall in love with these broken characters. This last quote that I found, I think is utterly perfect. If someone asked me to describe this book or my feelings about it, I would say, read this quote. This quote is everything……“This moment is perfect and real. And I want to live in it forever. Two torn, brittle, ratty souls weaving together as one and creating something new and perfect.” I have no idea what K. Webster has in store for readers next, but I for one can not wait to see where she will take me next!
