Dirty Old London: The Victorian Fight Against Filth - Lee Jackson

If you are fastidious, don't like filth or stench, then you would have not wanted to live in Victorian times as there was plenty of both and even if you were wealthy it was no protection as there was no avoiding either! This is a really well researched book, filled with everything you could possibly want to know about this subject. There was a lot of fascinating information about grime, soot, toilets, housing, washing clothes and bodies etc, but there was also a lot about this or that committee, so and so said/did this, somebody else did that which wasn't nearly so interesting and I ended up skim reading these sections. The photos don't work too well on a kindle which is a shame. It is still worth reading this title to get a great insight as to how our forebears lived.

Hardcore Mini-Review
Hardcore (Filth Book 3) - Dakota Gray Hardcore (Filth Book 3) - Dakota Gray

This is the third book in Dakota Gray's contemporary romance series, centering on three male friends. The book is told entirely in the hero's POV. I loved it. Duke is an attorney, blessed with being born into a family of attorneys, but wants to be his own person and make partner at a firm that isn't his father's. He's a bit of an alphahole--mostly in the way that he's incredibly ambitious and a workaholic. Three years prior, after (during?) a holiday party, he drunkenly has sex with Kennedy, a woman who owns a courier service for attorneys. The sex is hot, possibly too intense for Kennedy who initially rejects Duke.

 

Can you feel the angst yet? There's so much angst. So, there's a second chance at love/hooking up, which is nice. Also, Kennedy is a great heroine. She takes no shit (especially from Duke) and she's the kind of person you want to be friends with.

 

But, really, the story is all about Duke. I rarely like alphaholes, but for him, I was all in. It's probably because he struggles with it so much AND, his grovel is SO GOOD. I love Gray's writing and I trust her, so I knew going in that whatever dickish behavior Duke would do, he'd also have to answer for.

 

If you haven't read this series, I strongly encourage you to. It's funny, sexy, angsty, and a great escape.

Perv Mini-Review
Perv (Filth Book 1) - Dakota Gray

Perv blew up on twitter last weekend and lived up to the hype. I totally loved it. Hero is a cocky guy who is really into a certain part of a woman's anatomy and is apparently quite skilled at bringing women pleasure. The heroine takes him down several notches. I adored her. It was funny, sexy, and had some unexpected moments of heart and angst. Bonus for several scenes highlighting women's friendships.

 

This is the first book in a series about three guys (the hero and his friends). A sexy book that hits the feels too. Can't wait for the next one.

Perv (Filth Book 1) - Dakota Gray

For me, this is a 3 1/2 star book. I never felt like Nate was actually a perv. He had his favorite part of the female anatomy that he liked and went for it. He is a dog in that he has been through many women and does not even care about remembering their names. Then he meets Robyn (Stealth and Heels) who is out for revenge once she realizes who he is. This first meeting turns into an obsession for Nate until he and Robyn find themselves in unknown territory. The sex scenes are hot but not over the top. It took me a bit to get into the characters enough to care, but I enjoyed how they came to face their feelings and admitted their love.

I received a copy of this story as a Book Obsessed Chicks Star Review Team selections in exchange for an honest review.

Old Filth
Old Filth - Jane Gardam This was a solid, slightly fussy, slightly old-fashioned book about an essentially orphaned ex-pat, his extraordinary judicial life, and his "return" to England (where he had never actually lived for any period of time). the "Old filth" of the title is a reference to this character as well as (mataphorically) to some of the experiences of his past -- whether traumatic or just not English enough. The nearly century-long span of the novel's telling is carried off masterfully; the moving back and forth through time was seamless. That said, this is very much character-driven and not event-driven, and I could see folks being tired by the lack of narrative drive.
