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.


I loved Dirty English and I could not wait to dive into Filthy English. I wanted to know what Dax was all about and know what was behind his cocky exterior. Remi and Dax share a history together which made their past very intriguing to me. Sadly, their story left me disappointed.

Remi seemed very awkward and unfocused at certain moments. She had a life plan that was thrown out the window when her fiancé leaves her just two weeks before their wedding. Whirling from this loss she ends up in London during what would have been her honeymoon. In trying to forget her heartbreak, she tries to sleep with a complete stranger.

Dax is a manwhore not trying to give away his heart to anyone. He first encounters Remi in a London club but because they are wearing masks, they not recognize each other. Once they learn who the other is things become one train wreck after another.

Thier relationship from this point on is a constant back and forth. Remi continues getting angry with Dax and but won’t voice it. She wants him then she doesn’t. The last straw of the story for me was with her and the ex-fiance. At this point I had my fill of the constant tug-of-war game they play. View Spoiler »

The story simply never really came together for me. It was all over the place and so much happened in the beginning that I was a little overwhelmed. I really think Dax and Remi had potential though because when there were together and on the chemistry was great. I was rooting for them but at some point I just wanted Remi to make up her mind one way or another. In the end, it all came together a little too late for my liking.
