She's a poor little rich girl.
With a vindictive mother and an obsessed brother-in-law, all Adyson Sloan wants is a little freedom—for her and her sister. She dreams of having a little room to breathe and making her own choices. But when she's kidnapped by the Grim Bastards MC, freedom comes at a much higher price. Terrified, but determined to get back to her sister, Addy’s plans are ruined when she falls for a bastard with a chip on his shoulder.
He's a bastard without a heart.
Sergeant at Arms Brew Decker plays by his own rules. To him, nothing is sacred but the brotherhood. He lives and dies by the club and would do anything for them—even kidnap an innocent woman. After all, she's merely a pawn in the bigger game. But everything changes when he meets Addy. Suddenly, he'd do anything for his captive.
Can love between a rich girl and a bastard survive without someone losing it all?

Favorite Quotes:



Unlike my mom and dad, Hoss would love Trix not matter what.  She could spend the rest of her life as a lunch lady at the local elementary school, and he'd wear a smile. 

She will fight until she realizes she's just wasting her breath.  Then, she'll agree to whatever he is saying and go behind his back and do what she wants anyway. 

I can get what you're willing to give me any time, but I only want it from you.


My Review:



In Filthy Bastard, some of the characters in the story are filthy rich, other characters are rat bastards, other characters are MC members of a group known as Grim Bastards, and some characters are both filthy rich bastards.  Filthy Bastard is a hybrid genre of an intense and gritty MC and an erotic romance with elements of suspense.  It was cringe-worthy, angsty, heartbreaking, and highly sensual.  The first third of the book followed the same timeline and storyline as the first book of the series, Dirty Bastard, while being even more gruesome and disquieting.  The back-stories were intriguing and the story was well paced, although unsettling and disconcerting.  While they held my attention and kept me curious and involved, I am relieved to be finished and looking forward to reading lighter fare.
