Publisher's Summary

Wrong has never been so right.

Survival.

It's all about the next dollar.

It started out as a job, but has morphed into an addiction.

Money flows and life is good.

Women respond to my mere presence, begging for one more taste.

I was the king, on top of the world.

It was all a game and I expected nothing less than being crowned the champion.

Then she waltzed into the club.

And everything became dirty.

    Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!

    Story
    "The Good, The Bad and The Dirty!"

    I dislike giving bad reviews, I know writing and narrating stories is tough and you can't please everyone. However, after reading all the positive reviews on amazon, I was expecting to fall in love, but sadly this story wasn't for me.

    Some Spoilers:
    The Good - Captivating Storyline - Zane a construction worker by day, a male stripper in the evenings, and a lady's companion at night all to earn money to pay for his grandfather's medical bills, and to keep their home. In walks beautiful Ava who's only there for the summer and there is instant connection. As Ava and Zane become lovers, she helps him cope with some emotionally life changing events, but Zane is keeping secretes.

    The Bad - The Delivery - The storyline was captivity, but I felt the delivery lacked. The story came across choppy, with no natural flow and it felt like there were chapters missing. I’m all for the instant love, but I think these characters needed a little more development to build the chemistry between them.

    The Dirty - Not so sexy scenes - I get the dirty sex scenes, but I don't get the female squirting or telling the women you want to be with, we can't have sex until I get tested for STD while she is going down on you. It's just not sexy, more embarrassing, then blushing. I like stories where you can feel the chemistry between the characters, even it is instant love.

    The narration was good but sometimes it sounded like Ariel was talking in tunnel or on the phone.

    I received this audio in exchange for an honest review, and honestly this story wasn’t for me. The storyline had so much potential but I felt the delivery fell short; however, I don't want to discourage others from listening.

    Story
    "Uptown Girls meet the Bad Boy"
    Would you try another book from HJ Bellus and/or Marcio Catalano and Ariel Kae ?

    This is my first (audiobook) from HJ Bellus and I would definitely be interested in reading more in the series. It was very hot and steamy and I am a fan of the good girl meets bad boy story


    Would you recommend Dirty to your friends? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the story but quality of the audio recording of the female lead was very off-putting


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Marcio Catalano did a good job as Zane but I found he spoke a bit too slow for me. Ariel Kae's voice sounded very tinny in the recording. It was very jarring to go between the two


    Any additional comments?

    I received an audio copy of this book from the author via Audiobook Blast in exchange for an honest review and to be honest I am glad I didn't use a credit as the quality of the audio production was very sub-standard and detracted from my listening experience

    Story
    "Wow"

    I was given this book in exchange for an unbiased review via audiobook boom. I loved the dual narration. But it was not the best. I am sure they will get better if they continue to work together. To be surrounded by debt and no way out is very hard and takes a toll but then the beauty steps in and wow she saves him and they fall in love. Okay! what's missing? Where is the back story? The bad boy loved his grandfather so that makes him a slightly bad boy. Her parents were just plain snobs. No one likes a snob. You can be rich and still not be a snob. I guess there are some people who just can't help thinking they are better than others because they have money. But in the end, you can't take it with you and then someone else is gonna spend it.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    Story
    "Dirty and Hot"

    This book was exactly what the title implies...filthy, dirty, raw but with a strong feeling of family in the storyline...both good and bad. The "good" being Zane's strongly bonded relationship with his terminal grandfather and "bad" being Ava's dysfunctional relationship with her snobby pretentious parents and the far-reaching effects they had on each other.
    I like a bad-boy/good girl book and this one did not disappoint and even though the surprise reveals near the end were sort of expected to happen, it was still a fast-moving and engrossing story and I would read more by this author.
    BTW...the strip club scenes were HOT...just saying =)

    I was provided a copy of this book in return for an honest and unbiased review.

    Marcio Catalano and Ariel Kae were good with the delivery of the story

    "(Beauty) "AVA AND THE GIGALO" (Beast)"
    Any additional comments?

    Very good book.
    Narration was professional and flowed well.
    Story was close to a Beauty and the Beast scenario. Zane was caged into a desperate corner of debt. Ava stepped into his world. Magic happened.
    Worth a credit!

    Story
    "SURPRISED!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! I have already recommended this book to several of my friends that aren't even into this genre of books. One of them have already told me how surprised they were also on how much they like it and like myself, couldn't stop listening!

    The plot was okay, but i really liked the dialogue which made up for it which is why i gave it 4 stars. Overall, I liked it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Definitely Ava! Her voice is so manipulatingly sexy and fits her character perfectly! Zane's aggressive dominant style really hypes up the sex scenes.


    What about Marcio Catalano and Ariel Kae ’s performance did you like?

    Ariel's voice is amazing. I actually looked up more of her performances but couldn't find any. I hope she does more! Marcio's voice, i felt didn't fit the character much and was kind of monotone.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Suck you in


    Any additional comments?

    I admit, at first I was a little judgemental about trying out this audiobook. But once I checked it out, I couldn't stop listening. I actually listened to many parts multiple times to get everything out of it.

    "Dirty Dirty Boy!"
    What made the experience of listening to Dirty the most enjoyable?

    I liked that it was a short fast pace book, but it was also very enjoyable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Zane, I know he seem like a pig from the outside but once you got to know him he was a very sweet kind man just trying to care for his grandfather.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Grandpa went to the beach house.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Grandpa Passes!


    Any additional comments?

    "Good start"

    received an audio copy of this book from the author via Audiobook Blast in exchange for an honest review. And, I've got to be honest. This book just didn't do it for me. So many 5 star reviews make me wonder if it's just the audio version, but even if that's the case I've got to say that the main character, Zane, would never appeal to me. I couldn't relate or even begin to feel sympathetic towards him and his plight which meant that I couldn't relate to Ava having any meaningful relationship with him. It just wasn't for me. It didn't work for me. I didn't like the characters and the story was a little bit too superficial for me. Apologies.
