"Filthy (Rixton Falls, #3)" Reviews
I need to stop reading her books. I keep getting excited but also disapointed in how the stories progress. Especially this one. The ending was wayyy too abrupt!
DNF for me.
I did not care for Delilah or the hero. This couple played the same game that every other recent sport romance is playing/doing. They meet while the hero is having a "good" time. The heroine pretends that she is not interested in having sex with the hero when she wants nothing more than to have sex with him. The hero wants the heroine but is willing to play the game...blah, blah, blah.
The heroine was annoying. I felt she thought she was all that that when she was just average. There is nothing memorable or special about either character.
It would have been better to stick with one POV on this one maybe that would bring some intensity into the story besides knowing what each characters is thinking at all times.
Reading is subjective. You may love this.
DNF a little over halfway through. Idk how I made it that far honestly. There was zero chemistry between the protagonists and I didn't care for Zane whatsoever. And I don't know... It was rushed and while I normally don't mind the whole back and forth "I love you, no, I hate you" concept, this just wasn't done very well.
AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: Oh em gee!!! THIS BOOK WAS PHENOMENAL!!!! Like, SERIOUSLY...it’s a MUST.
Lidia Dornet and Roger Wayne did an astounding job bringing the story to life!
The angst, the build-up, the banter...this story had me GLUED and ADDICTED.
Zane was 100% swoon-worthy! He had his struggles, his past, and I could not help but fall for him and root for his HEA.
As the story progressed, I got ansty because I knew something was bound to happen...and surely, it did!!
Guys...this is A MUST listen to (or must read) FOR SURE!!
Six stars!! Gah! I’m so stinkin’ excited! LOVED IT!
And then, alas, I came to Filthy. I enjoyed the first two books of this series, Royal and Bachelor so I figured the enjoyment would continue. Not so. I should have caught a clue from the title but I’ve read books with filthy in the title and they were fine.
I think this is the first time I starred a DNF. I don’t really figure it’s fair to grade a book I don’t finish but as you will see if you keep reading, I want this lowest possible grade on the record.
I didn’t care for this one from the start. The hero Zane starts off as a manwhore who’s a big football star. In order to curb his wildness he’s forced to move into a retirement community. One of his neighbours has her niece staying with her. Delilah is a sister of the main characters from the first two books. I’m not exactly sure why she’s staying with her aunt, it’s kind of glossed by but when Zane catches glimpse of her, his manwhore radar ding, ding,ding, dings and he is after her like she’s a bitch in heat even though she’s quite rude to him.
Then for no real reason I could figure out she changes her mind and becomes a bitch in heat. I came across this scene and I’m only paraphrasing it here since, thankfully I no longer have the book. I got it through Kindle Unlimited and thank goodness I did so and didn’t pay a penny for this – well – filth. OK here’s me paraphrasing their first time - their first time mind you and bickering and being nasty to each other
“So, you want to be my filthy little whore do you? He asked. She got on her hands and knees and turned around to look at him.
“Yes, she replied.
After slightly vomiting in my mouth over that scene I couldn’t get the book off my Kindle fast enough.
No, no, no, no, no, no!! If some guy had said something like that to me the first time we had sex, well, after I kneed him in his precious manwhore balls, I’d through his clothes out the window, pour gasoline all over them then set them on fire. I’d pour itching powder all over the weinie he’s so proud of, and, then I’d do something REALLY nasty. Don’t get me wrong, role play can be fun and if that’s what they were doing it would be a different story, but no, this was the FIRST TIME. Though for me – even in play, NO partner would get away with calling me a whore. What a pig he is to treat someone like that. And what does that say about her that it was OK for him to talk to her in those terms, not only let him talk, but then let him walk the walk!! Someone who has no self respect,that’s what it says. Also someone who is simply in heat. For me there is NOTHING these two could do to recover from the revulsion I feel for them both.
I don’t usually get this worked up for a DNF but I just found it so offensive. I read romance, not letters from Penthouse magazine and that’s what reading the start up to his scene was like. Romance is love and feelings and caring and warmth. This was cold and clinical and just nasty.
And sadly, I was so bothered that I don’t care to read anything else by this author. And that makes me sad as I did like the first two books.
Now this may not offend other readers as it did me, and that’s fine. But I think each of us has a line or scene that can’t be crossed and this crossed mine.
