Dirty - Megan Hart

Dirty has been on my TBR list for a long time. A group buddy read caused me to move it up and finally read it. No one writes a broken character like Megan Hart! Thus, I have to be in a certain mood to read one of her novels. Not because I don't like Ms. Hart's writing...I LOVE her voice. But Ms. Hart's books are so emotional and a little too real in a way that sneaks up on you, grabs your heart and keeps you thinking about her characters long after you've closed the book.

Elle is the queen of broken heroines. Oooh boy does she have good reason!! For a better part of the book, I was quite frustrated with Elle's antics. When her past becomes clear...
We then understand that Elle has survived the horrors of her past the only way she knew how. I'll leave it at that to avoid spoilers. 

The only downside of this book for me is that it is all about Elle and her issues which prevent her from opening up and fully loving Dan. We don't get to know much about Dan separate of Elle, which I understood but I couldn't help wanting to know more about where Dan comes from, how he felt, etc. This is one book that would have benefitted by a dual POV (which I have to say is not my favorite, usually).
