My need for power came to me by accident.

The need was real. It was overwhelming. It was consuming me.

So we played a dangerous game of trial and error. What I could handle and what I couldn’t. It became apparent fairly quickly that I couldn’t handle much. But I liked this game because I controlled it.

Link and Rocky’s story continues in this second installment of the Dirty

4.5--Link is Definitely Playing Dirty--Stars!!

Warning: May contain spoilers for Getting Dirty.





Playing Dirty picks up exactly where Getting Dirty left off. We have the parallel stories of Link and Rocky that are slowly starting to come together.

"How far is too far?"

Four years later and Link has finally come face to face with one of his attackers. The one that raped and beat the love of his life, Olivia.



Vengeance. It's what he seeks. But not just vengeance for one. Vengeance for all four. All

RATING: 4 How the Hell Will This End??! Hearts!! :) <3

description

Playing Dirty continues the gritty and angst-filled story of Linken and Rocky, two crippled souls, one for which vengeance is the glue that holds his tattered self together, and for the other alcohol and men as mitigation from an unrelenting past.

"How far is too far?"

This picks up right after the suspense laden ending of the last episode with Link seeing through a precarious and morally corrupt situation, and us hearts in our throats,

*****FIVE STARS*****


I'm definitely hooked on this series!!
I can't get enough of Link and am dying for him to get it on with Rocky!

Link is holding Aaron hostage in his basement.
He will use whatever means necessary to get the names of Livie's attackers.
We relive Rocky's attack in her high school locker room and learn her attacker was a fellow student that she knew.

**Warning: contains dark themes, offensive language and graphic sexual content**

Most people don't know how simple it is to choke somebody. The right amount of pressure in the right spot will bring even the biggest man to his knees.

Every lesson we learned in grade school about stranger danger runs through my mind. Don't talk to strangers. Don't take candy from strangers. Don't open the door for strangers--Not once did my mom or teachers tell me what to do about someone I knew.

*4.5 STARS!*

This is the second novella in the Dirty series and I found it a tiny bit better than the first.

The first two chapters devastated me. We had flash backs of what happened to Rocky which just broke my heart it was graphic and raw but so devastatingly well written. We also had Link discover things which he didn't know which again was graphic I think because I wasn't expecting it I felt even more shocked and disgusted by what happened to Rocky, Link and Links girlfriend who died, to me t

This story is hard to read but I couldn’t stop. How far could you go for revenge? How cruel you can be? It’s really cruelty when you want to hurt the men that took the life from you? Will you consider yourself a monster?

Link is a step closer for his revenge and we can see that his sanity isn’t really there. I don

I’ve been told over and over how time heals all wounds.

But here’s the truth:Time has not healed that loss or filled that hole. If anything, it has only taken her farther away from me.

I need them to suffer—to pay—before I go insane.

Okay it is way better than Getting Dirty, at least I am seeing now where the story is taking me. Things are making more sense now. I will continue with book three maybe tomorrow. They should have made the five of this to one whole book. But I like where each novella ends, making you itch to know more. So yes, Link and Rocky are still fucked-up, but it is in their fucked-uppery that they are moths to each other's flame. However I think the sexual tension between them happened too fast, like in a ...more

How does this happen?! For every book, every installment of Cheryl's literary work, I keep saying, "No, THIS is amazing. Sure, the former one was awesome, but this—THIS—is freaking killer!"

Oh yes, Cheryl McIntyre pulls out all the stops in her Dirty serial. Her writing is flawless, perfect. Smoothly, she brings you into her characters' twisted worlds. I believe in them, I understand them, I suffer with them...I hope with them. In the midst of their despair, their complicated psyches, love is bud

"I’m a vigilante. Or I will be by the time this day is over."

This was a great start to the series. This author is new to me, I love a hidden gem. I bought the bundle, so I'm diving right into the next installment.

“You kissed me,” I say, mimicking his words, the question apparent.

“You’re the first,” he states without missing a beat.

“Why me?”

He shrugs his broad shoulders, smiling sadly. “I don’t know. Don’t care to analyze it.”

“We’re pathetic.”

He huffs out a laugh. “I agree.”
