Publication Date: 7/2015
Series: Vengeance Duet #1
Rating: 5 Stars





Official Blurb:

DIRTY. 

A seemingly innocuous five letter word until you pull back the layers of its meaning.

Imprisoned in a small room within the walls of the Satan's Creed Motorcycle Club compound, Casey Richards struggles to survive the only life she was raised to know. Her mother, a club whore, and her father, an unknown outlaw she’s never met, Casey’s fate is all but sealed in the eyes of the club. 

Foul. Unclean. Undesirable.

Trapped in a loveless marriage, and with no children of her own, Emma Carsen is the only living soul willing to fight for her niece, Casey. She’s all but given up on saving her until the one man she’s longed to see again unexpectedly finds his way back to town and into her life.

Sordid. Vile. Unscrupulous.

Max Taylor, former-biker of a disbanded MC, has been holding onto reasons to avoid coming back to the small town he grew up in. The same ghosts that drove him away eventually force Max to find his way back. Now that he's home, he may be Casey’s only chance for freedom.

Filthy. Hateful. Impure.

In order to get to Casey, Max must find a way to infiltrate the MC. Setting up a meet with Hoss, Satan's Creed’s President who’s known for his depravity as much as his double-crossing ways, it’s made clear that forming an alliance is going to be more of a challenge than he expected. Now he must prove his loyalty to the club and in doing so, he’s forced to get his hands…

DIRTY.


AC Bextor has done it again! After binge reading her other MC series the night before a huge signing, I knew as soon as this one popped up I had to read it.  While it took a little longer to get to than I would have hoped, it didn’t diminish the urgency I had to ready this novel.  

I want to start off by saying this isn’t exactly your typical MC story, which is a VERY good thing.  Dirty revolves around a little girl who’s been caught up in the MC life from the day she was born to her junkie mother.  She’s trapped behind gilded cage walls and her life is about to plummet to a far dark path if she isn’t rescued. Her Aunt Emma has feverishly tried to save her and adopt the child, but she is suddenly cut off from her visitations.  She becomes desperate for any information about Casey and when an unlikely ally and former crush returns to town, she pleads with Max to help save Casey. Em and Max are bound together in this dangerous plot and their ties will be tested.  Some say that all is far in love and war, but when they collide head to head, the explosion is earth shattering.

I know by now I might have your attention, but I want to warn readers that this book is emotionally devastating and will churn your stomach at times with a few characters and their devious thoughts and actions.  While this story is in fact a romance, and yes, the romance is hot and steamy between Max and Em,  the main focus is on Casey’s life.  The horrors this child has seen will keep most adults from sleeping. There were so many times as I read this book that my eyes burned from crying for Casey.  Her childlike views of the world devastated me knowing what was likely to become her fate.   So again, if you cannot handle that dark parts of a gritty MC than this will serve as your warning.

As I mentioned, Dirty is a hardcore dark MC read that will leave you breathless and dying for more with each page.  While this is a two part book, the wait will definitely be worth it.  I need to know what happens like NOW!
