My marriage seemed perfect from the outside looking in.
People envied me. They wanted my life, wanted to be me.
Mrs Alejandra Gambino.
Wife of Dino Gambino. Daughter of Eduardo Castillo.
Respected. Loved. Mob royalty.
They had no idea of the horrors that lurked behind closed doors.
They didn’t know I was at the lowest point a person could reach.
Enter Julius Carter.
Aloof, handsome, blue-eyed Julius Carter.
He saved me.
I screwed him over.
Now everybody was after me. My life was forfeit.
It was only a matter of time. I was a dead woman walking.
The question was, who would get to me first?
“His words are like a decree, a pledge, a vow. These are the things he would do for me. These are the things he would do to keep me safe.”
“There will be no other for me, only him, and I will make him happy. He will never regret his decision to keep me. I swear it. I am his. From this moment on, I belong to him.”
“It’s then that I know everything is going to be okay. I didn’t even realize I was looking for the reassurance. Not until I found it.”
Holy Freakin’ Wow!! What a great read!! I just can even right now!!! When I think of Dark Mafia Style books, this is exactly what I have in mind….A story that consumes me. A story that keeps me guessing. A story that has unexpected twists and turns…
In order to keep this review as spoiler free as possible, I am gonna try and keep this review short and sweet. This book….Wow, it was like the perfect storm. It was captivating, all-consuming and impossible to put down. Dirty is dark and will take you on one intense, thrilling ride. Now, I’m gonna warn you, this story is not for the faint of heart. This story is raw. It is intense. It is gritty and deals with some tough subject matter….
Dirty is fast paced and incredibly well written. You will find yourself devouring all the words, impatiently turning the pages to see what will happen next. Yes, there is a lot of darkness and intensity, but like any good book, there is light in all the darkness. There is hope. There is love and scorching hot romance. And there is an ending that while it is wrapped up, it will leave you waiting with baited breath to get your hands on the final book in this series…
*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*
Belle Aurora is twenty seven years old and was born in the land down under.
At an early age she fell in love with reading. Boredom one summer had her scouring the bookshelves at home. She stumbled across Sandra Brown’s Breath of Scandal and fell in love with romance.
Having been brought up in a loud and boisterous family of Croatian descent, she developed a natural love for dramatics and humor. Only some years ago had she discovered a new love.
Humorous romance novels.
Kristen Ashley and R.L. Mathewson had opened a brand new world where she could lose herself yet feel safe and at home in their stories. Belle has been known to become a screeching banshee while anxiously awaiting their newest titles.
Belle never thought she would write. It had never interested her until recently. Friend-Zoned began to form and in February 2013 Belle typed the words Chapter One. And she fell in love.
With a creative imagination she never knew she harbored.
Friend-Zoned is the first in the Friend-Zoned series. Keep an eye out for this cheeky author.
