Filthy mouth. Dirty mind. Messy past. I'm no saint, and I hear my reputation precedes me, but you can't believe everything people say.
I've made a living playing by the rules only when the clock is ticking, the ball has been snapped, and I'm cleat-deep in AstroTurf. But I screwed up last year. I went too far with the girls and the partying and the benders. As a result, the team owner sentenced me to live in some gated, Floridian retirement village until I can "calm down".
The rules are clear: no girls, less booze, zero publicity stunts. If I lay low and repair my reputation, I won't get cut. It's that simple. Everything was going well. For the first time in my life, I was living by someone else's rules, and then she showed up for the summer.
My next door neighbor's great niece is visiting, and it doesn't take long for me to see Delilah Rosewood is the perfect mix of sexy and smart. She makes me want to break all the rules and draw every penalty just to get a taste. But there's one problem: she hates me with the passion of a thousand Florida suns.

Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!
.... met a girl crazy for me.... met a boy cute as could be....
Filthy was funny, cute and had some steamy romance. There's a HEA, no cliffhanger, and could easily be read as a stand alone. What I enjoyed most, was all the sexy, witty banter between Delilah and Zane and how he would get under her skin.
Zane's a confident, sexy, dirty talking "baller" who's been sent to a retirement community in FL to clean up his act. His lifestyle and total disregard for the Laguna Palm's Home Owner's Association isn't winning him any points with the present of the HOA, who happens to be Delilah's great aunt, Rue. Delilah's more of an uptight college student who's staying with her great aunt during the summer. She's been warned about Zane's "personal mission to live a life of hedonistic defiance." When she first arrives in Laguna Palms, all she wants is a good night sleep but Zane, her great aunt's next door neighbor, is throwing a party. In an attempt to get the party noise down to an acceptable level, she goes over to Zane's (a very sexy Zane) asking for the party to be taken inside. He tells Delilah he won't do it and she's too young to be the fun police. She leaves slamming the door and this is the first of their love/hate relationship. Zane can't resist riling Delilah, and each encounter turns into sexual tension. When they finally give into their desires, they have some amazing sex and decide to make it a summer fling.
The narration was great! I enjoyed both Roger Wayne's and Lidia Dornet's performances. Dornet really did an awesome job with characters, especially Delilah's great aunt.
While Filthy wasn't as intense as other romances I listen too, it was still a good story, and the banter was both funny and sexy. It's worth a credit.
