Book Tour+ Review: Filthy English by ILSA MADDEN-MILLS

A smokin’ hot British player…
A jilted girl…
One night of mistaken identity…

Amazon UK: 

*A modern love story inspired by Romeo and Juliet*


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.


Without much thought except for comfort, instinctively I pressed myself against him, fitting into his arms as easy as breathing. He leaned against the brick wall of the neighboring building and wrapped me up, sensing my need to be grounded.
I don’t know how long we stood like that—maybe a minute, maybe five—but soon our breaths were in sync; the rise and fall of his chest in perfect accord with mine.
One of his hands traced down my spine and then up. He outlined my shoulder blades with his fingertips. His hands drifted to my hips then caressed back up to my hair, massaging my scalp.
But what had started as an innocent hug changed.
Fire licked my skin everywhere he touched. Of their own accord, my hands slid down to his waist and teased the line where his jeans rested on his hips. I went further, my fingers toying with the V at his hip until I felt him harden against me.
Lips brushed the top of my hair. “Remi . . . look at me,” he said, his voice raspy.
If you look up, you’re going to kiss him . . .
I tilted my head up and his mouth fused with mine in an instant.
Insistent. Wild. Hot. Yes! This is what I needed.
I groaned, and my hands rushed to his shoulders and dug in.
He was wrong—terribly wrong—for me, but it felt so right.
I felt wonderfully alive, revved up, as if I could crush a car with my bare hands, or push Dax against the wall and fuck him senseless. I recognized the feeling for what it was—an I almost-died-and-now-I-want-to-experience-life feeling.
“Wait,” he breathed as I ran my hand under his shirt. “It’s adrenaline. You’ve been through a trauma. You don’t really want this—”
“Shhh.” I lifted his shirt and kissed his chest, my tongue flicking over his nipple. “You taste like every good thing I’ve ever wanted.”
His taut restraint snapped, and he swayed into me. “God, I can’t tell you no.”

Let me tell you I was hooked since Dirty English. I knew Filthy English would be a great as well. Ilsa surely didn't disappoint!  

Dax is a "temporary guy" and Remi is a "forever girl". She had to protect herself and her heart.  She had her life set out and planned. It kept her grounded and focused.  Dax is the total opposite.  Easy come, easy go.  He went by the fly. 

They had an early encounter when she was a freshman.  However, things didn't last but her heart was broken and was in a dark place.  That's when she made lists.  Remi started dating and later engaged.  Her fiancé dumped her and she fled to London where they were supposed to honeymoon. Then one night, Remi went to a club and ran into Dax. Of all places in a large world, Dax was living there during the summer.  During the few weeks, they became friends. Yet, she's still keeping a secret from him that happened years ago. 

They both had something in common.  

"Losing a loved one. Loving hurts but losing someone devastates you.  Changes you".  

This quote meant a lot to me.  Loving someone molds you into the person you are today. That their memory stays with you forever.  Taught you how to love and cherish each other.  

Dax has a hard time expressing the love he has for Remi. He's afraid that he will be left aside and or abandoned. But Remi was now going to fight for him. Dax knew that "she was my light, my breath. She was my Juliet".

Absolutely loved Dax and Remi. An English guy with a sense of humor, who jokes and takes bets and is hot! And Remi, even though she had lists to go by to keep her grounded. The love for her brother and best friend. And the love of Tequila!!
