❤❤3.5 Star Review of DIRTY BASTARD by Emily Minton and Shelley Springfield ❤❤

Dirty Bastard


Emily Minton and Shelley Springfield


She's a biker chick with an edge.

Daughter of an MC president, Trix Slade is used to living on the wild side, but nothing prepares her for being kidnapped by the Grim Bastards MC. Hellbent on getting back home, Trix will do anything to get away from her captors--anything. There’s only one problem, Boz is as sexy as he is wild-- a tempting combination for a woman like Trix.

He's a bastard with a soul.

The Bastards’ president, Boz Creed, wants to bring Trix’s father down and knows the best way to get to him is by using his precious daughter. Determined to get the revenge he seeks, Boz is willing to do anything to get what he wants--anything. There’s only one problem, Trix is as sexy as she is stubborn--a deadly combination for a man like Boz.
Can love between two rival clubs survive without someone taking the ultimate fall?

**Book provided in exchange for an honest review**

Some things just kill a book for me that might not for anyone else. This book had two issues that I couldn't get past, even after a few days of sitting on this one for a review.

Let me say first that story is well written. Both perspectives are distinct and interesting. They flow smoothly and interlock well so there are no holes in the timeline. I think the story moves along well but sometimes it does get a little slow.

Most of my complaint is with the kidnapping itself. I feel like Trix was stupid about the whole thing. She was freakn' kidnapped with her best friend yet she doesn't act particularly scared. I know it's because she knows her dad will come get her, but her dad doesn't. He sits on his hands the whole time she is there just because Boz says he won't hurt her. The only escape plan from her dad is something that feels flimsy. Trix, instead of feeling scared, is turned on by her captor from the get-go. I think her brain must be really scrambled. Yeah, you can want your captor but please just be scared. You are there against your will not as a friend of the club.

The thing that really killed it though is they killed the dog. Who does that? Why? I really loved the dog and then pow! pow! he's dead. NOOOOOO!!! Just let the dog live! I had a bad feeling from the introduction of him that he was going to die and I wasn't wrong. Just please, next time, don't kill the dog.
