eARC BOOK REVIEW#- Filthy 2 (Filthy, #2) by Megan D. Martin

Title:  Filthy 2 (Filthy #2)   
Author:  Megan D. Martin

Publication Date: September 1st 2014 by Megan D. Martin
Plot:   Faye Turner’s nose itches for another bump of cocaine and her body burns for the man she can’t have—Rhett Hale, her step-brother. He is completely different than the guy she fell for four years ago—the guy who turned her down. Now he’s a clean cut stranger with eyes that burn with a constant war of lust and hate. 

But he isn’t the only one with eyes for Faye. 

Someone else is back from her old life… And Faye finds herself falling further into the past she tried to forget.

***Filthy is a dark erotic serial novel that will release in six monthly segments of around 50 pages each. This book is not for those who like a traditional heroine. Faye and Rhett's story is dark, complicated, and twisted with themes that are not acceptable to all readers. Read at your own risk.***

My Review 

☆ I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!! ☆

* Shout out to the author: Megan! I played it smart this time around!! I purposely secluded myself away from my family in order to get my 40 pages of reading pleasure and not feel guilty for it! Haha.*



For those of you who have read bk 1, you should already be up to date on what’s going on. In Filthy 2,Faye’s character is just as flawed, lost, and rough around the edges. But there is a vulnerability there too and we learn the story behind it. FINALLY!


Faye’s past packs quite a bit of an emotional punch and a sense of reality of a scared young girl that had to grow up before her time. It was just majorly f*#cked up to be frank.


As much as I wanted to strangle her at times, I also wanted to protect and guard her from all the bad, including the word vomit and harsh treatment that he received from Rhett. Ugh,


I wish she would tell him the truth! But, then again, why should she, right? Rhett has been nothing but a judgmental and serious a$#whole to her since she walked in the door!! Not to mention, she'd been taking care of herself all this time so she can take care of her demons on her own without him...right?


And last but not least, the ending!! Omigah!! What's going to happen next?! Aaaahhh!!!


So, my thoughts:

A PHENOMENAL addition to such a wonderful serial!! Definitely kept me on my toes!!


Filthy 2 was even more addicting and stake rising and introduces a new character in the lineup that spells trouble with a capital T!! I literally wanted to murder him!


Gah, I already want bk3 already and am crossing my fingers for even MORE Rhett and Faye interaction!! Particularly when, he's not being such a douche to her!! I want romance blooming and extra amounts of lust scorching my e-reader! *wink wink*


Pretty please?!

Anyway, great job Ms. Martin and I look forward to reading more!

Blog Tour Stop!- Worth Forgiving (MMA Fighter #3) by Vi Keeland

Title:  Worth Forgiving (MMA Fighter #3)   
Author:  Vi Keeland
Publication Date: August 21st 2014
Plot:   They say men like a lady in the living room and a whore in the bedroom. I never knew the sentiment was reciprocal. Until I met Jax Knight. A gentleman in public, a commanding, dirty talking rogue in the bedroom.

Daughter of legendary fighter “The Saint,” Lily St. Claire knows firsthand how fighters can be. As the owner of a chain of MMA gyms, she’s no stranger to aggressive, dominating, and possessive men. That’s why she’s always kept her distance. But the day Jax Knight walks through her door she’s captivated by his charm. Stunningly handsome, well mannered, Ivy League educated, and confident, he shatters all the preconceived notions she’d come to think were true about men who trained to fight.

But falling for someone so soon after her breakup wasn’t something she’d planned on. And definitely not something her ex plans to allow.

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!! ☆

Me before reading: Omigah!! I WANT it already!! I was already half in love with Jax in Worth the Chance and now I just want to keep him for myself and lock him in a cave with me forever! lol♡♥

Me finished reading: Waaah!! I'm done! ! I can't believe it's all over!! Jax, I LOVE YOU!!♡♥♡♥


Worth Forgiving was a bittersweet ending to Vi Keeland’s MMA fighter trilogy. I’ll admit that the epilogue didn’t exactly wow me but when all’s said and done, I really enjoyed the bow on tie to this read and it’s two previous predecessors from start to finish.

“Love isn’t something you can turn off. When it happens, it takes a little piece of who you are. I think people sometimes people keep fighting because they’re more afraid to lose that piece of them, rather than lose the person they love.”

Lily St. Claire is the daughter of a legendary fighter in the MMA world and the co-owner of a chain of infamous MMA gyms.

She knows what it’s like to be around testosterone filled, ego charged, and dominating men and has shared her own personal woes with one possessive douche bag in the love department.

So when mysterious, “straight-laced” appearing, educated and successful businessman, Jackson “Jax”/”Pretty Boy” Knight, walks into her gym looking to train and perhaps some nookie, she is skeptical. She’d already tampered business with pleasure and seen where it got her.

Now with an ex that won’t let her go and her growing attraction for Jax, how will it all turn out? Not to mention, when her father’s business legacy is in jeopardy and her trust is blatantly betrayed by someone most close to her, will she gain justice and somehow find forgiveness in the guilty party?

“There’s only two choices with a man. Forive him or forget him. If you can’t do the latter, then you need to forgive him because he’s already stolen your heart.”

And Jax. With Jax’s dysfunctional family problems in the midst and a threat upon Lily to contend with, will Jax win the fight of his life while regaining Lily’s honor and win her heart in the end? Or will everything end in shatters and heartache for him (and Lily)?

Read and you will find out!

#An anti-climatic conclusion to this wonderful series but you know what, I liked it anyway!


It did a wonderful job of bringing characters and themes full circle and giving us a peak into the all of our heroines’ futures. I am a VERY content girl right now. *beaming smile*


Great job Vi!! I’ll miss Jax, Lily, Vince, Liv, Nico, and Elle but I’m glad to have had the pleasure of journeying through it will all of them!! They will be dearly missed but all in all, they’ve finally found their peace and happiness.

Bon voyage Mr. Knight, Mr. Stone, and Mr. Hunter!! It’s been a swell, steamy, and one hell a ride getting to know you!! xoxo

 Excerpt:  Meet Jax and Lily 

Dinner and a dirty mouth
My face pinks when the waiter clears his throat, no doubt he’d heard Jax’s last comment.
“Are you ready to hear the specials?”
“Are we?”  Jax arches an eyebrow, his eyes gleaming with delight.  He’s not the slight bit embarrassed, but knows I am and is quite enjoying himself.
“Yes.  Please.”  I give him the evil eye and force my full attention back to the waiter.  The entire time the waiter talks about the specials I feel Jax’s eyes burning into me.
“I’ll give you a moment to let you decide.”  Graciously, the waiter excuses himself.
“Why did you do that?” I scold, my voice low.
“Do what?”  He leans back in his seat, crossing his arms over his thick chest.
“You know exactly what I’m talking about.”
“Do I?”
“You enjoy watching me flustered, don’t you?”
Jax arches both eyebrows.  Bad choice of words.
“You know what I mean.”
Leaning in, his voice gritty and sexy, he looks me straight in the eyes when he speaks.  “I love watching you.  Period.  But what I like best is watching you pretend you’re unaffected.  It’s like an unspoken challenge.”  He pauses and leans in even closer.  “I love the pink that creeps up your cheeks when I say something dirty.  The way your pussy throbs when I mention what I’m going to do to you later, and you wiggle in your seat trying to control it.  So yeah, I guess I do like watching you flustered.  You sit and give your attention to the waiter, trying to pretend you’re listening to whatever he’s saying instead of thinking of me feeding you my cock later, but we both know you didn’t hear one word he said.  Hell I didn’t hear one word watching you, just knowing what you were thinking about.”
This time, I see the waiter before he’s close enough to hear us.  He smiles as he reaches our table.  “So what can I get for you this evening?  Did I interest you in one of our specials?”
I look at the waiter, then Jax, who arches an eyebrow with a knowing smirk on his face, then back to the waiter.  “The specials all sounded delicious.  I just can’t decide for myself.  I’m going to defer to my date to pick one for me.”  I return my eyes to Jax with a cheeky grin.

He throws his head back with a chuckle and looks at the poor confused waiter.  “We’ll take whatever two are your favorites.  Surprise us.”

Meet Liv Michaels
It may have been seven years, but I'd know him anywhere. Sure, he's grown, filled out in all the right places, but his captivating blue eyes and cocky grin are exactly the way I remember. Even though I'd much rather forget.

Liv Michaels is almost there. She's smart, determined and weeks away from landing the job she's dreamed about for years. Time healed old wounds, even her broken heart from the devastation of being crushed by her first love.

Meet Vince Stone
Women love a fighter, especially a good one. Lucky for me, I'm damn good. But there's one woman that isn't interested. Not again, anyway.

Vince 'The Invincible' Stone is every woman's fantasy...strong, sexy, confident and completely in control. Growing up surrounded by chaos, he's learned never to get too attached. Love will drag you down. He adores women, treats them well, puts their own needs before his own...for the night anyway. With the biggest fight of his life coming up, his focus should be on training.

When fate brings Vince & Liv back together again, there's no denying the chemistry is still there. But can Vince erase the old scars their past left behind? Or will Liv hurt him instead?

***Author's note*** THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the 18.
