Publisher's Summary

This is what happened: I met him at the candy store. He turned and smiled at me and I was surprised enough to smile back. This was not a children's candy store, mind you, this was the kind of place you went to buy expensive imported chocolate truffles for your boss' wife because you felt guilty for having sex with him when you were both at a conference in Milwaukee.

Hypothetically speaking, of course. I've been hit on plenty of times, mostly by men with little finesse who thought what was between their legs made up for what they lacked between their ears. Sometimes I went home with them anyway, just because it felt good to want and be wanted, even if it was mostly fake. The problem with wanting is that it's like pouring water into a vase full of stones. It fills you up before you know it, leaving no room for anything else.

I don't apologize for who I am or what I've done in or out of bed. I have my job, my house, and my life, and for a long time I haven't wanted anything else. Until Dan. Until now.

    "Surprisingly good"

    I enjoyed everything about this book except the narrator's poor try at a male voice...raspy. Not only was this book hot but it had a decent story line too.

    "Excellent..."

    This is a great read all around. If you get it because you want to hear the naughty bits...it will deliver...but there is a good story line too...and an interesting one at that.

    "Awesome Just Awesome!!!!"

    This was my first erotica book and I was truly pleased! I found myself turning down the volume on my MP3 player at the steamy parts for fear that someone would hear. I would recommed this one to everyone within the sound of my voice, you will not be let down!!

    "A different kind of story"

    Bravo to Megan Hart. This is an excellent book. I had a hard time putting my player down. El is a great character and someone I found myself yelling at as well as rooting for.
    I recommend this book to all who have had abuse in their lives. I also recommend this book to anyone who wants a different kind of story.

    "Smudged"

    As others have mentioned already, this is an extremely odd book. I wouldn't call it erotic but rather a sexually explicit psychological drama. As far as the heroine's journey towards healing I think it works marginally well. I found it thought provoking in many respects. Unfortunately it still has elements of the romantic 'stock' characters - most notably the male love interest who has patience imagination and free time beyond what might genuinely be believed. And the sex, attached as it is to greivous psychological pain and compulsion, is rarely enjoyable and might just as well have been left out entirely - and I usually live for the 'good parts'!
    To add further disappointment, Elenna Stauffer does exactly the same voices and tone in this book as she's done in every other frothy romance I've heard her read (and I have a 3 book a week habit so I've heard them all) and this book could truly have used something more subtle and nuanced.
    I can only recommend this book as an intriguing failure if and when pickings are slim.

    "Very, very hot but.."

    I have to agree with the other reviews, very hot! I'm definitely and "Elle" fan.

    However, I just got bored after awhile. I really think it was the narrator, I just couldn't get past the "male" voices. If there were a different reader, I probably would have loved it!

    "Loved it!"
    What did you love best about Dirty?

    It was erotic, but also well written and a good story. A little more intense than many erotic books.


    What other book might you compare Dirty to and why?

    I can say it compares to 50 Shades, but it isn't quite in the same league. It was still good anyway.


    Have you listened to any of Elenna Stauffer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She was ok. Sounded a little like the teacher on Glee.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction. I did listen to it fast because I wanted to find out what the secrets were.


    Any additional comments?

    Really liked the book and would recommend it.

    "Misguided"

    This is part 2 and it starts on chapter 10. Waste of a credit.
