Publisher's Summary

Her time is over.

Things are looking up.

She's dirty and ugly.

He's wicked but handsome.

Six months to toy with her.

Six months of vacation and a ton of money.

I'll hurt her beyond repair.

I've been through much worse.

She's difficult to control and doesn't obey.

I'm done submitting to anyone or anything in this life.

I should hate her.

I should hate him.

The game has changed.

I will win.

Dirty Ugly Toy is a novel that blurs the lines of right and wrong, deals with abuse, contains dubious consent, and adult subject matter. If you are sensitive to violent sexual situations, the book may not be suitable for you. Some parts of this book are not easy to hear and are not intended for everyone. However, those that keep an open mind and stick with it will not be disappointed.

Dark, emotional, and loving

This story was definitely dark and disturbing. Right up my alley. The narrator did a fabulous job of the male character however, performing the female and the accent, not so successful. It put me off quite a bit in the beginning. I almost quit listening 20 minutes in but as I got more captured by the story I was hooked. It was an easy listen. It was nice to see the strength in the female character. The author did a good job of explaining and sharing the backgrounds and the reason why the characters are who they are and do what they do. It was emotional, intense, and deep down, loving. The ending was beautiful. The epilogue was the best part and put a smile on my lips. In the end, I was a happy listener.

100x better than 50 Shades

This book was dark, sensual, and well written. The plot is deep and well rounded. 50 shades is "vanilla" in comparison.

Gripping from start to finish!

I honestly bought this book on recommendation only. I had not read the description or anything. A friend said buy, so I bought. I was not disappointed. WOW What a twisted, wonderful tale!!! I don't want to give anything away so I can't say much, but gripping/wonderfully disturbing/captivating should about cover it. The only thing that would have made this any better would have been a female co-narrator, but the make narrator did fantastic. I will be recommending this one!!!

My Two Pennies

Braxton surly loves his toys, he enjoys taking them from the dirty ugly environments they're currently surrounding themselves with and transforming them into his most prized possessions but for a maximum of six months. To be brought back throughout the book to his childhood it starts to make sense as to why he's the man he is today. Things start to be shaken up within and round him though with his newest toy. I love a dark dirty read and K. Webster did not disappoint. Loved this story from beginning to the very end. This is my unbiased and voluntary review.

Wow...that was intense...

Best book I've listened to in a long while. The warnings are right, this is not for those who get offended or may have triggers to violent sexual situations; however if you are up for the intensity of this book- then you will understand the characters motivations by the end. I'm not even sure what else to put in this review because it was so good but I don't want to give anything away. You really have to experience it for yourself, but I definitely recommend if you are looking for something that will twist your mind and make you fall in love with the hero that you want to resist in every way.

Pygmalion Dark

Yes, it's the My Fair Lady of dark romance. Braxton sees himself as evil, he finds girls that he can make into his "toy" and then after he's tires of playing, he callously disposes of them, he's done this nineteen times and then he chooses Jessica as number twenty.

Jessica is addicted to drugs and will do anything for that next fix and Braxton makes her an offer she can't refuse.

Braxton is a brutal taskmaster making her quit drugs cold turkey and then sets about remaking her from the ground up. But Jessica is much more than she seems and Braxton's obsession with restoring her is deeply rooted in his troubled childhood.

I really liked this audiobook! Some parts were a little far fetched, but not ridiculously so. Yes this book is dark, has bdsm elements, deals with drug abuse and has dubious consent, so if you have triggers, you probably should stay far away from this book. But if you're like me and not phased by difficult subject matter, this book is a gem, has the HEA and no dreaded cliffhanger, yippee!

Now onto the narrator, sigh… It’s a love/hate thing, when he's narrating from Braxton POV he’s wonderful… Except when Braxton’s yelling, I literally had to pull my earphones off! But the problem is his narration of Jessica, his English accent for her is all over place and his reading of her is somewhat screechy. Still overall he did a decent job.

Buy or credit it's worth it.

Different Is Okay

Well, this was a different love story that I am used to reading but that's ok. Even crazy people need love too.

Sensually Dark

This book was recommended to me and it took me 6 months to finally get around to listening. The questions is why did it take me so long? This dark romance is everything I love. It pushes me to the edge of my comfort zone with the drug use and the dubious consent. It consumes me with love as Jessica learns of Brax's life. It angered me when I met Jessica's husband and finally left me with hope as life evolved. The mind of K Webster shows us how there is so much more to a person than we see. Brax makes Jessica his dirty, ugly toy for 6 months. Taking her from the streets, he cleans her up and plans on making her bend to his will. Unlike any other woman he has met though, we see a transformation of both as their many layers are revealed. Their pasts will come to haunt them and their futures are there for the taking. It's a ride worth taking as we explore the depth of characters, deal with their demons and find their true selves. One of the best listens I have had the pleasure of hearing. Steven Barnett is amazing in this book. He is able to portray the dark elements, add the fear, and gives us the hope. I thought his performance all around is great. He flows and adds the English accent to Jessica with ease. He has a good array of voices for the many characters and pulls us into this dark and sensual world.

Awful, far too repetitive and predictable.

I gave this two and a half hours in the hope it might improve but I was just disappointed.

Utterly Brilliant!!!

Not only is this a fantastic book. I mean it's just amazing.
I was nervous to listen incase it spoilt my version of Brax in my head. I needn't of worried.
This has to be one of my favourite Audios to date. I just loved it.
Steven Barnett has done a wonderful job at capturing the essence of Braxton Kennedy. I love the deep rumble of the voice it suited Brax perfectly. When he did the Shouting parts that Brax is so famous for, I was a gonna.
So much so I found myself rewinding certain parts just to hear them again. Great job.
I can't recommend this Audio enough. Just see for yourself how good it really is. You won't be disappointed.

Heed the warning

I’m pretty open minded and like some fairly hardcore books but this one starts with the murder of a woman the main character is finished with. I was never going to come around to liking him after that. I returned the book in less than 10 minutes

A must read/hear.

this nook had me twisted in knots, i felt sorry for her, i was mad at him and then as it went along i was hopeful for him while at the sametime so pissed off at how dense he was being. but overall it i wanted more, not another book just more from this, i felt that there was room for a few more ups and downs and twists.

‘Twas good!

This book was good. The storyline was different to most erotica and that uniqueness was refreshing. I feel as though the narrator could’ve had more consistency with the accents and the ending felt a little cheesy to me - but overall an enjoyable audiobook.

Addictive

I wasn't really sure what to expect. I haven't read anything like this before but was totally willing to give it a chance- and I'm not sorry one little bit that I did. From the moment I started, I didn't want to go away from it. Loved it ❤️
