Pleasantly surprised! Good story!

I went into this story with mixed reservations. I am an avid Pride and Prejudice fan. Comparing this book to my favorite all time literature is like comparing boxed wine to fine wine. Non-the-less this story is a good one. I would call it more Young Adult than contemporary. Declan and Elizabeth are characters that you can believe in. There are some "minor" characters in the background that also make the book interesting and at times amusing.

This story does address some very vile and real issues (including date rape), but does not detract from the overall story and only makes the heroine believable, admirable and strong as she struggles to put her life back together. The book shows this is a slow process.

The love story between Declan and Elizabeth is swoon worthy.

In the end, this book is credit worthy and most definitely sale worthy.

Narration: Summer Morton's performance is okay ... .not stellar but I found John Harleys female voice performance extremely lacking, which is why I knocked down the rating.

Everything I love in a Contemporary Romance Book!!

What a Yummy book! This book has love, strength, drama, violence and sex. The perfect mixture for me. I loved the characters! Elizabeth is a damaged girl with amazing strength but a misguided idea of how to deal with her past. Declan is an underground fighter with a great heart, a protective side and British accent! I love how they deal with their issued and find what they need. The love story is sweet, the sex is hot, the drama not extreme and the ending was perfect. I knew the minute they talked about Pride & Prejudice that I would love this book <3 I very much enjoyed the authors writing style and I know the book would have been great in print but I am so glad I waited for audio, I think the narrators were a perfect fit.

I would definitely recommended this book to Contemporary Romance Readers!

Absobloodylootely!


Dirty English is a fantastic falling in love story about two characters who finally learned not to let their past get in the way of their future, and was filled with drama, angst, violence, and romance. The romance between theses two characters was fairly mild compared to some of the more hotter and steamier stories I listen too, but well worth the time invested in listening.

Some Spoilers:
More of a young adult romance with adult themes, these characters survived loss, heartache, and questionable upbringings. Taking place in college scene with frat parties, classes, and drama, two scarred souls find each other. Declan has suffered loss, and is searching for someone to fill the void and fall in love with, while Elizabeth, who was brutally betrayed by her high school boyfriend, is unable to open or allow herself to fall in love again. There's no denying the immediate attraction between these two characters; however, Elizabeth is afraid and constantly pushes Declan away.

Audible has some of the BEST narrators! Here's another example of two very talented narrators, Summer Morton and John Hartley. This duo did an OUTSTANDING job narrating this story!

Definitely recommend Dirty English for any "Romantic at Heart" who loves a HEA for two deserving characters. It's credit worthy but as a KU/Whisersync it was a KNOCKOUT of a deal! I'm looking forward to the next book being released in audio!

Loved this story

The narrators were really good, they hit all the emotional highs and lows as if it was really happening to them. I also really loved the British accent, I mean who doesn't?! It makes for a more interesting read.

I loved the story, two broken people finding each other and working through their problems. The characters were a great fit, I really liked the brothers relationship as well, I can see Dax having his own book, he was a fun character. The only thing I didn't care for was the way some of the plot twists fizzled out and nothing came from them. Like her friend being in love with her for so long and then suddenly going for the other girl, they never even had their 'talk' for it to add drama to the story. Other than the few small things I loved the book. It was a great way to spend a few hours.

Sweet Couple!

I enjoyed this, it wasn't particularly edgy but enjoyed the banter and the relationship dynamics. I also liked that for once Declan and Elizabeth stated (occasionally) what they were actually feeling and we didn't spend the entire book with (what's really going on?). I liked Declan being and showing a little more vulnerability. The narrators were both good, but John Hartley was Outstanding. I will listen to him again! Beautiful sexy accent.

Thanks Ilsa

Awe-Struck!

The leading lady, Elizabeth has a past she needs to square with and Declan is a man who knows how to fight for what he wants. In this beautiful, emotional, exciting book my heart beat fast, swelled and in the end left me so happy that I take off my hat to the author! Well done! I'll read anything she writes after this one! Love!!! Love!!! Loved, it!!
