Hattie Morris is a young girl with silly dreams and a fantasy she’s been holding onto since she was sixteen years old.
“Dirty” Johnny Williams is a hard man who rides as a Notorious Devil, known for being filthy between the sheets, yet always wishing for the unattainable more.
One night, one kiss sets fate in motion, and neither Hattie, nor Johnny, can deny that their lives have been forever changed. Time and distance stand between them, but a chance encounter shatters their ability to resist each other any longer.
It’s not long before Hattie realizes that fantasies are named thus for a reason, while Johnny learns that the innocence of a sweet girl is no match against his hardened heart.
Yet, inexperienced as she may be, Hattie knows one thing for sure. If she doesn’t take a chance with this rough and rugged man, she’ll never know if dreams really can come true.
Whoo-Weeee- When they say Dirty Johnny, they were not kidding. Johnny Williams is Dirty!!!!!!! His is a member of the Notorious Devils MC and despite his name, he is a good man. He meets Hattie at an out of the way gas station when she was still just a kid, saving her from a sick predatory. He didn’t know her age at the time, but something attracted him to her. Fast forward 3 years and Hattie happens to attend a party at the MC clubhouse. She is so out of her element it isn’t even funny. Once again, Johnny comes to her rescue. The attraction is still there and Johnny knows he should stay away from her, but he can’t seem to walk away. They are so wrong for each other. Rival MC clubs, Hattie’s family, and Johnny’s own mind is trying to keep them apart, but will Hattie’s light be enough to cut through Johnny’s dirt?
I loved this book. It was so, dark, dirty, and gritty. I loved Johnny right from the beginning. He tried to hard to be THAT Dirty Johnny, but I could see through his character. Hattie wasn’t as naive as she seemed. Her character was a lot stronger than she though and a great match for Dirty Johnny. And HOLY COW!!!! The situation with her friend and Johnny’s dad! Really? Talk about crazy drama! I loved everything about this book. All of the characters and the action/suspense made this book sooooooooo good. I highly recommend it if you like some gritty MC books.
