Filthy English - Ilsa Madden-Mills

A smokin’ hot British player…

A jilted girl…

One night of mistaken identity…


*A modern love story inspired by Romeo and Juliet*


Two weeks before her wedding, Remi Montague’s fiancé drops her faster than a drunken sorority girl in stilettos. Armed with her best friend and a bottle of tequila, she hops a plane to London to drown her sorrows before fall semester begins at Whitman University.

She didn't plan on attending a masquerade party.

She sure didn’t plan on waking up next to the British bad boy who broke her heart three years ago—the devastatingly handsome and naked Dax Blay. Furthermore, she has no clue how they acquired matching tattoos.

Once back at Whitman together, they endeavor to pretend they never had their night of unbridled passion in London. 

But that’s damn hard to do when you live in the same house…

One night. Two damaged hearts. The passion of a lifetime.


OMG, can I first say I want my own Dax?? And I also fan-girled over Remi for many reasons! This book was wonderful! This story pulled me in in a heartbeat and I fell in love.

This is the story of Remi, who is jilted two weeks before her actual wedding, her fiance decides he needs a break; needless to say she is heartbroken and is left to cancel wedding plans. She decides to take Lulu, her BFF, along with her to her honeymoon so as not to waste it. In England, fate steps in and she runs into Dax, the guy she had a three day weekend with when she was a Freshman.

I bit down on my lips to keep the words in my heart from spilling out. You can't hate the first boy you ever loved. 

Dax is OMG, super hot, sexy, cocky, but sweet underneath. They both realize that there are some sparks there from their last encounter. But Remi makes a pact that they agree to be just friends. Despite that and how confused they feel, Dax is angry.

Thinking of her getting shafted at the alter by Hartford made me ballistic........And Hartford. Sonofabitch. Thinking of him fanned the flames higher. He'd dumped her?

I loved Remi. For a change, she was a character who really said what she was feeling and I found that many times I'm screaming at characters in my head saying tell them how you feel!! She did and I loved that!! Remi was great and I loved her honesty...

"I was a walking zombie--and every time I saw you on campus with another girl, I wanted to shatter into a million pieces all over again." 

Things happen in this story between these two people.....second chances.....the fiance is back in the mix, and yet there is so much doubt between Dax and Remi, some of it their own, some brought from other characters. This book is full of angst. I hated that but also loved it. That makes a book great for me.

Without giving any more away, I will just say, that I seriously loved this book and these characters....including Spider and Lulu and even Malcolm...what a wonderful soul! 

I didn't read Dirty English and it didn't take away from this book, but having read this now and loved it, I will definitely go back and read the first book. 

Read this!! You won't be disappointed!!

He was my imperfect soul mate, and every tiny thread in the universe had stitched my heart to his, piecing us together, fashioning us into something that was, in my mind, absolutely perfect. 

I read this in exchange for my honest review.


Without much thought except for comfort, instinctively I pressed myself against him, fitting into his arms as easy as breathing. He leaned against the brick wall of the neighboring building and wrapped me up, sensing my need to be grounded.

I don’t know how long we stood like that—maybe a minute, maybe five—but soon our breaths were in sync; the rise and fall of his chest in perfect accord with mine.

One of his hands traced down my spine and then up. He outlined my shoulder blades with his fingertips. His hands drifted to my hips then caressed back up to my hair, massaging my scalp.

But what had started as an innocent hug changed.

Fire licked my skin everywhere he touched. Of their own accord, my hands slid down to his waist and teased the line where his jeans rested on his hips. I went further, my fingers toying with the V at his hip until I felt him harden against me.

Lips brushed the top of my hair. “Remi . . . look at me,” he said, his voice raspy.

If you look up, you’re going to kiss him . . .

I tilted my head up and his mouth fused with mine in an instant.

Insistent. Wild. Hot. Yes! This is what I needed.

I groaned, and my hands rushed to his shoulders and dug in.

He was wrong—terribly wrong—for me, but it felt so right.

I felt wonderfully alive, revved up, as if I could crush a car with my bare hands, or push Dax against the wall and fuck him senseless. I recognized the feeling for what it was—an I almost-died-and-now-I-want-to-experience-life feeling.

“Wait,” he breathed as I ran my hand under his shirt. “It’s adrenaline. You’ve been through a trauma. You don’t really want this—”

“Shhh.” I lifted his shirt and kissed his chest, my tongue flicking over his nipple. “You taste like every good thing I’ve ever wanted.”

His taut restraint snapped, and he swayed into me. “God, I can’t tell you no.”
