**THIS IS A STAND ALONE BOOK**
A smokinÔÇÖ hot British playerÔÇª
A jilted girlÔÇª
One night of mistaken identityÔÇª
Two weeks before her wedding, Remi MontagueÔÇÖs fianc├® 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 didnÔÇÖt plan on waking up next to the British bad boy who broke her heart three years agoÔÇöthe 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 thatÔÇÖs damn hard to do when you live in the same houseÔÇª
One night. Two damaged hearts. The passion of a lifetime.
*A modern love story inspired by Romeo and Juliet*
**no one dies in the writing of this novel**
#ThankYou Ilsa Madden-Mills.┬á I was one of the many in the #GiveUsDax camp.┬á May I start off by saying that Dax was worth the wait.┬á HOLY SHIT.┬á We all fell hard for our Dirty Declan so you know there was no way we couldnÔÇÖt trip into love with Dax.┬á He was surprisingly so much more than I expected.┬á A complex man who loved so hard.┬á A body made for sin, an intellect made to woo, and a heart made to love one woman.┬á The balance of sweet and naughty was perfection.┬á If you wondered what was under the frat fa├ºade, you certainly get your answer in this book.
I fell for Dax when I thought he was just a fun-loving guy.┬á He filled up my heart when I realized the depth of his character.┬á This really is a second chance at what could have been love.┬á Between hiding behind masks (literally), hiding behind the past or hiding behind misconceptions and miscommunications, my heart was breaking for these two.┬á Timing and feelings were always one off.┬á So itÔÇÖs safe to say Madden-Mills seriously ups the angst factor.┬á She also manages to pull some major heart strings.
I felt closer to Dax, but I certainly found a soft spot for Remi.┬á She had her heart broken in multiple ways and multiple times.┬á I liked her grit and snark.┬á At first, I thought she was going to be a jaded, angry person, but she proves hearts can heal and still have room to love after breaking.
I couldnÔÇÖt put this book down.┬á You need to pick it up and suffer the same fate as you get a little dirty, even filthy, with a side of English (wink, wink).
