Elle Kavanagh lives a successful, primarily solitary life in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. She’s cordial enough with her neighbors and co-workers but has very few real bonds of friendship with any of them. Even her sexual relationships are just encounters here and there with very few of the men who know her real name. Elle isn’t ashamed of who she is or what she’s done in or out of bed. She’s been perfectly content with life as it is - until now. No one could have guessed that she'd meet a man in a candy store who would change her life.
From the moment Dan Stewart meets Elle he knows there’s something special about her. He’s got nothing against getting down and DIRTY but he isn’t interested in a one night stand either. Dan understands that Elle is uncomfortable with dating. Rather than push to put a label on their relationship he agrees not to date . . . instead they’ll do whatever Elle wants. Surely she’ll see how good they are together and want more than a sexual relationship with him.
Megan Hart exceeded my expectations when I picked up DIRTY, her newest release. I knew there would be smoldering sex scenes, after all this is an erotic novel, but I didn’t expect to become emotionally involved with the characters' lives and want to befriend each of them. Ms. Hart treats us to Elle’s personal journey as she struggles with the events of her past and how they’ve affected her beliefs and attitude in her adult life. I loved Dan’s easygoing attitude and the way he’s able to accept all of Elle’s quirks while making her comfortable just being herself. While the central focus of this book is on Dan and Elle there are a couple of awesome subplots which kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what would happen next. Wonderfully written Ms. Hart.
Watch for more of Ms. Hart’s books to be released with Spice Books in the future. BROKEN will be released in May, 2007. PERFECT is due to be released in January 2008. There will be a couple of others that will follow including one titled CATCH AND RELEASE. Now doesn’t that title just scream fun?
