Title: Filthy Desire
Author: Sebastian Ex
 Release Date: March 4, 2015

 

Synopsis

My name is Matthew Weston. Don’t call me anything else, because I won’t respond. And if you think you can get away with whimpering ‘Matt’ while I have you tied to the bed, about to devour you, it’ll end up being your loss.

Men like me don’t talk about feelings. We just don’t.

What men like me do is pound. I pound the asphalt with my running shoes on morning runs. I pound a punching bag in the gym until my knuckles bleed. And when I need a release, I find a beautiful woman sprawled out on her bed, eagerly waiting for my cock, and pound her into oblivion. Yeah, that’s me. I don’t have feelings, and I don’t do love.

At least I didn’t, until the night Ella walked into my office looking like a disgusting junky to interview for a position for The Onyx Club.

She was like no one I’d ever met before. She was timid, reserved, and quite plain with her mousy brown hair and dirty clothes. Ella also had a dark and haunted gleam in her eye. A secret, a past she was desperate to conceal. 

And when she called me ‘Matt’ it didn’t seem to bother me.

 

She came into my life and turned it upside down. The only question is, can I screw her out of my system, or will my filthy desire for her keep her by my side?

I received a copy of this book from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review.

I thought this book was a bit fairy-tale like, except that the hero was kind of a jerk, at least in the beginning. I like the heroine because she was a strong character. I also liked the secondary characters.

There were a few things that I felt were unnecessary to the whole plot. They didn’t make the book better or worse. They were just added, probably as fillers. One example is the waitress who cried sexual harrassment. If that side story was elaborated further or resolved more clearly instead of a one-sentence mention like what happened, I believe it would have added more depth to the bond between the hero and the heroine.

I also find it impossible to believe that the hero got to kill the heroine’s kidnapper without any legal repercussions. It sounded to unreal. However, it’s fiction, so I won’t complain. I also felt that the switch from the hero being a jerk to him being sweet to the heroine was too hasty. I guess, that’s just how things is.

Don’t get me wrong. I liked the book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I just believe that it still needs a little more polishing in the writing style and the way that the conflicts were tackled. All in all, though, it a fast and easy read with a bit of steam and some domineering characters.
