A smokin’ hot British player…
A jilted girl…
One night of mistaken identity…

Two weeks before her wedding, Remi Montague’s fiancé drops her faster than a drunken sorority girl in stilettos. Armed with her best friend and a bottle of tequila, she hops a plane to London to drown her sorrows before fall semester begins at Whitman University.

She didn't plan on attending a masquerade party.

She sure didn’t plan on waking up next to the British bad boy who broke her heart three years ago—the devastatingly handsome and naked Dax Blay. Furthermore, she has no clue how they acquired matching tattoos.

Once back at Whitman together, they endeavor to pretend they never had their night of unbridled passion in London.

But that’s damn hard to do when you live in the same house…

One night. Two damaged hearts. The passion of a lifetime.

Micah’s Thoughts:

“She was my light, my breath. She was my Juliet. Only we’d have a happy ending. I’d make sure of it.”

Ilsa Madden-Mills is a friggin’ master, man. Filthy English was such a breath of fresh air after a bit of a hiatus of emotional, feel good-reads. I loved Dirty English so much that I didn’t think a follow-up could live up to its promise, but I sure was wrong. AND I have a heart on for well done second chance romances. Full on book crush. Love. And have you seen that cover? I loved Declan, but Dax? He’s on another level.

Remember Declan from Filthy English? We are following the story of Dax, his brother. He is going to school and he has the same emotional situation that Declan does. However, it has affected him differently. Remington is a girl who he had a passionate fling-ish type of affair in Freshman year and neither has heard from each since. Now that Remington’s fiance has asked for a “break” 2 weeks before their wedding date, she takes their honeymoon to England. Who happens to be the hot stranger she spies in the bar while she is scamming for a hook-up? None other than Dax…whom she was in love with even after 72 hours.

This book wretched my heart in such a great way. In tore my emotions into shreds all the while I just wanted all of the characters to be happy. The pull of the emotions, especially from things as simple as miscommunication, will frustrate you but add immensely to the story. You FEEL their connection from moment one; you just need the characters to catch up.

I would rate this book a 5. I loved it equally as much as I loved Dirty English and it is a great addition to the series. Can’t wait to see what is next!

Without much thought except for comfort, instinctively I pressed myself against him, fitting into his arms as easy as breathing. He leaned against the brick wall of the neighboring building and wrapped me up, sensing my need to be grounded.
I don’t know how long we stood like that—maybe a minute, maybe five—but soon our breaths were in sync; the rise and fall of his chest in perfect accord with mine.
One of his hands traced down my spine and then up. He outlined my shoulder blades with his fingertips. His hands drifted to my hips then caressed back up to my hair, massaging my scalp.
But what had started as an innocent hug changed.
Fire licked my skin everywhere he touched. Of their own accord, my hands slid down to his waist and teased the line where his jeans rested on his hips. I went further, my fingers toying with the V at his hip until I felt him harden against me.
Lips brushed the top of my hair. “Remi . . . look at me,” he said, his voice raspy.
If you look up, you’re going to kiss him . . .
I tilted my head up and his mouth fused with mine in an instant.
Insistent. Wild. Hot. Yes! This is what I needed.
I groaned, and my hands rushed to his shoulders and dug in.
He was wrong—terribly wrong—for me, but it felt so right.
I felt wonderfully alive, revved up, as if I could crush a car with my bare hands, or push Dax against the wall and fuck him senseless. I recognized the feeling for what it was—an I almost-died-and-now-I-want-to-experience-life feeling.
“Wait,” he breathed as I ran my hand under his shirt. “It’s adrenaline. You’ve been through a trauma. You don’t really want this—”
“Shhh.” I lifted his shirt and kissed his chest, my tongue flicking over his nipple. “You taste like every good thing I’ve ever wanted.”
His taut restraint snapped, and he swayed into me. “God, I can’t tell you no.”
