My name is Matthew Weston. Don’t call me anything else, because I won’t respond. And if you think you can get away with whimpering ‘Matt’ while I have you tied to the bed, about to devour you, it’ll end up being your loss.
Men like me don’t talk about feelings. We just don’t.
What men like me do is pound. I pound the asphalt with my running shoes on morning runs. I pound a punching bag in the gym until my knuckles bleed. And when I need a release, I find a beautiful woman sprawled out on her bed, eagerly waiting for my cock, and pound her into oblivion. Yeah, that’s me. I don’t have feelings, and I don’t do love.
At least I didn’t, until the night Ella walked into my office looking like a disgusting junkie to interview for a position for The Onyx Club.
She was like no one I’d ever met before. She was timid, reserved, and quite plain with her mousy brown hair and dirty clothes. Ella also had a dark and haunted gleam in her eye. A secret, a past she was desperate to conceal.
And when she called me ‘Matt’ it didn’t seem to bother me.
She came into my life and turned it upside down. The only question is, can I screw her out of my system, or will my filthy desire for her keep her by my side?
*This is a stand alone novel*
4.5 Filthy Stars!!
It didn’t take long to solidify that this was an unputdownable book. In fact, as soon as I read the blurb, I had to read it! I’m a sucker for the male POV and it being written by a male author? Sign me up!! I was truly captivated! The flow and ease of the writing style, the engaging and intriguing characters, I was a fan before the prologue was in the rearview.
I had an intense reaction to Matthew. It was more like a love/hate. Quite frankly, I have in my notes that he’s a douche-canoe! Those feelings transformed throughout most of the book. He’s a 38 year-old burlesque club owner. So… sexy? Check. Wealthy? Check. Cocky? Of course. Matthew was a dominant. A playboy who didn’t mind sharing his women. He had only 2 rules. Only call him Matthew and don’t ask for his number. Meeting Ella has him saying, doing, feeling things that I just knew he usually didn’t. Matthew finds himself wanting and needing to protect her. He wants to crumble the walls she’s constructed.
“She’s perfect. Beautifully broken, and stunningly mine.”
I loved Ella immediately! I wanted to crawl through the pages and help her. Her character pulled from me many emotions. She was timid, homeless, and scared. But she was also incredibly strong, resilient, and courageous. After running from a very bad situation, she ends up in Matthew’s club. Ella was broken, mousey, and shy. Yet, when pushed she certainly didn’t take anyone’s crap.
“Her eyes tell such an intense story of hurt and betrayal. It’s all there, behind the brown, deep inside her soul.”
Watching the transformation of the relationship between Ella and Matthew is intense. It’s raw and emotional. His newly found need to protect and her opening up and trusting – not only in Matthew but herself was inspiring. I loved the banter, the undeniable chemistry between them. It was terrific!
Hats off to Sebastian Ex!! Filthy Desire was captivating, a bit suspenseful, emotional, and scorching HOT! A plethora of sensuous and sexy scenes. A darker side to erotica and BDSM. Please note there are possible triggers in this book.
The epilogue is one I won’t forget! Amazing!! The journey from start to finish between Ella and Matthew is fantastic and I cannot wait for more!!
