Review: Dirty by Megan Hart



Dirty
by Megan Hart
Erotica Romance


This is the first book I’ve read by Megan Hart and I can officially say that I am a big fan of hers. Dirty is beauty in its simplest form. Megan has a distinct writing style that is both very simple and yet engaging. I loved it! But I think the real reason why her books have become such precious gems to her fans is because she puts so much heart into one little book! It’s kind of ironic that her pen name is Megan Hart. It’s fitting and lovely, just like her writing.

This book was such an emotional journey and although I didn’t exactly cry, there were plenty of moments in this book that broke my heart. I loved the subplot with Gavin and his relationship with her. It added another layer to an already complex storyline.

I don’t usually enjoy first person POV because I feel like there’s too much ruminating. But Elle’s perspective worked for me. However, there was one thing that irritated be a little bit and it had to do with some of the dialogue. Like the rest of Hart’s writing, it’s simple and straight to the point where a conversation usually consists of one word responses. Sometimes I wished they were more articulate because I was dying for Dan and Elle to communicate more in their relationship. But again, that had to do with Elle’s past and her reserved personality.

When she finally spills her darkest secrets to Dan, it’s through a monologue and I wished that we could read about Dan’s reaction to her confession. I knew Dan would have said the right things to make her feel better. He was the perfect hero. And if Elle was Princess Pennywhistle, Dan would be her prince, one whose armour wouldn’t tarnish, as Elle had learned when she was younger. I loved that Dan knew exactly what he wanted in the relationship, never pushing Elle too hard and never confusing her with mixed feelings. He was simply amazing.

This book was fantastic! Hart somehow manages to incorporate real life issues and still have that spark of humour and love. I don’t think I can decide on which book of hers to read next!

This was my first ever book by Megan Hart and the first erotic book that I ever read. She popped my cherry.

Elle and Dan have a very special place in my heart and always will.
