Review: Dirty by Belle Aurora



My marriage seemed perfect from the outside looking in.

People envied me. They wanted my life, wanted to be me.

Mrs Alejandra Gambino.

Wife of Dino Gambino. Daughter of Eduardo Castillo.

Respected. Loved. Mob royalty.

They had no idea of the horrors that lurked behind closed doors.

They didn't know I was at the lowest point a person could reach.

Enter Julius Carter.

Aloof, handsome, blue-eyed Julius Carter.

He saved me.

I screwed him over.

Now everybody was after me. My life was forfeit.

It was only a matter of time. I was a dead woman walking.

The question was, who would get to me first?



Talk Dirty to Me... Yep, that's the lyric that ran through my head every time the cover of this book graced my social media feed or I picked up my Kindle to read it.

As readers we waited what seemed like for.ever for this book.  And it was well worth the wait!  Enter, Julius Carter.  Dark and dangerous and perhaps just a little bit more?  And Alejandra Gambino.  Mob royalty.  Wife. Daughter.  Loved.

Except Alejandra was dead woman walking.  Could Julius save her?

This is a book that sucks you in from the beginning.  It's captivating, dark and dangerous.  It provides a twist that I hoped for but never saw coming.  The characters are flawed, real and intriguing.  They kept me interested and wanting more.

Belle has a writing style that is unique and all her own.  I loved Alejandra and Julius and the whole case of characters in this book.  As usual, I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

If you've read Raw, don't wait... read Dirty now!  And if you haven't --- well get on it!

Dirty is an absolute five-star read that will bowl you over with twists and turns and surprises.  ~ White Hot Reads

Belle Aurora is twenty seven years old and was born in the land down under.

At an early age she fell in love with reading. Boredom one summer had her scouring the bookshelves at home. She stumbled across Sandra Brown's Breath of Scandal and fell in love with romance.

Having been brought up in a loud and boisterous family of Croatian descent, she developed a natural love for dramatics and humor. Only some years ago had she discovered a new love.

Humorous romance novels.

Kristen Ashley and R.L. Mathewson had opened a brand new world where she could lose herself yet feel safe and at home in their stories. Belle has been known to become a screeching banshee while anxiously awaiting their newest titles.

Belle never thought she would write. It had never interested her until recently. Friend-Zoned began to form and in February 2013 Belle typed the words Chapter One. And she fell in love.

With words.

With writing.

With a creative imagination she never knew she harbored.
