*4,25* Emotional stars from me!!!

What an emotional roller-coaster, the second book after Dirty is really heartbreaking. Darby and Rhett started something calling it at first as an open relationship based clearly on sex, lots of fit (it's filled with many hot scenes) but afterwards emotions started to grow for each other, scarred with this situation is Rhett who had his heart broken in the past so now he is afraid to let emotions in for Darby and for that reason he hides behind sex saying that

Five Amazing Stars

I was just so excited to now to finally receive the second book from the most ultimately amazing series, The Reckless Series. From my amazing author and friend, H.J. Bellus. After I've now read the first and third book. I was just craving another book from this marvellous series.

When Rhett meets Darby out my night together for a drink at the club. Whilst Darby notices he is now ready to pass out. Tonight they can just relax, maybe then have a dance together

“Running is easy, but staying and fighting for love is difficult. Choose wisely.”

OMG. I am absolutely IN LOVE with Rhett and Darby. I loved how much they loved each other! SUCH PASSION and INTENSE CHEMISTRY! Holy hotness—the pages sizzled!

“Rhett,” I whisper onto his lips. Instead of responding, he kisses me gently. “Why do you make it so easy to fall in love with you?”

Rhett and Darby go through a TON of hardships, and by a ton, I mean A TON. Their lives weren't easy, by any means, and their

I can't but the correct words into this review because in the words of Rhett, "I can't unlove it". It has so many elements that made it one of HJ Bellus best book written EVER. Yes, I said it and am a fan but this book sits on the shelf with some of her other greats and is beyond a shadow of a doubt on my 2016 favorites.

Darby and Rhett, yes, double tits crossed with a cock, yes.... (channeling my inner Rhett). I laughed, cried, planned HJ slow torcher, and apologized for my evil thoughts, cried,

I read this book through Kindle Unlimited. This is the second book of the series, Darby and Rhett's story. I liked this book better than the first book which had storyline issues and this book doesn't really resolve those. You do need to read the first book before reading this one. This review contains spoilers.

Darby is Ava's friend and Rhett is Zanes friend from the book Dirty. During that book you know that Darby and Rhett are hooking up, in this one you get to experience it. We start out with

I am a fan of Heidi's writing from the get and up to this day, I just can't turn my back on her. She just knows how to grab her fans attention. Knows what her readers could possibly want. Her writing gets better and better with each book she spits out like there's no tomorrow. With Darby and Rhett's story in FILTHY, you'll be pushed and pulled to your limits. A lot of ups and downs that will have you frustrated at times but will make you want to keep turning page after page. Rhett and Darby's r

Filthy is a good feeling!

I've got my feel good meter tapped out. I loved the first book Dirty and now totes in love with Filthy!

Darby and Rhett couldn't be more wrong for each other but end up being so damn right!!!!

Stripper construction worker and a fashion blogger. What an an likely pair, but do they ever have chemistry. What turned out to be some fun under the covers and well anywhere really turns into real love. One that is truly hard to find. Loved this book just a little bit more than Di

Rhet and Darby are HILARIOUS!!! The banter between them will make you laugh but they love they share is sweet and real. I love they way they are each others half to their whole. Their story wasn't all sweet but determination and love held these two together.
I flippin love Rhett and Darby!! Even though these two are a hot mess, their story is one that pulled at my heartstrings.

When a hurricane collides with a tornado, destruction is sure to be the effect. Our two main characters in this story are just that...a natural disaster of past turmoil, present desires and a future of unknown opportunities.

There is so much joy, sadness and heartbreak within these pages that I just couldn't stop...I loved it!!!

Wow I have just finished this book & honestly I'm a little lost for words.

Having loved Dirty - book 1 in The Reckless Series, I already knew book 2 was going to be a killer. I guess I just wasn't ready for hom much it would gut punch me.

Rhett is Zane's best friend & Ohh My Gawd i love him. Cocky, arrogant & real cheeky charmer with enough swagger to melt your panties clean off. He has the ladies literally falling at his feet & makes no bones about just how this man craves sex - l

This is the follow up book to Dirty Zane & Ava's story.

Filthy is Darby & Rhetts unloved story that is full of twist & turns for the two of them and a ton of orgasmic sex scenes.

Darby is Ava's best friend she comes from a political family that have disowned her for not following their stuck up life style. She met Rhett in summer the year before (in Dirty). She's had loads of bad things happen to her in the past and carries ton of emotional baggage around with her. Rhett steps in as a

I loved Dirty, but Filthy blew me away. The author really amped up the emotional level in this book. I was completely floored by Rhett and Darby. These are two very complex characters. Each with their own demons they are trying to overcome. The storyline was incredible, and it flowed effortlessly. I was hooked, on the edge of my seat. With each new twist and turn, I was addicted all over again. There are plenty of HOT, sexually charged scenes that will leave you needing clean

Love overcomes all

When you find the right person to love everything falls into. It's only through honesty and forgiveness can you keep it together. Rhett & Darby both hide terrible secrets, once there out in the open, they no longer have the power to hurt you anymore. Rhett & Darby prove that. Everything works out in the end but it's not perfect. Then again nothing is ever perfect not even love, it all requires work and honesty. Then you get your happily ever after.

5 Incredible, Absolutely FILTHY Stars

That's it!! I have officially lost my heart and soul to Darby and Rhett...this book, the second in the The Reckless Series, shattered my heart, but then in the end, put it back together again!

We meet both Darby and Rhett in book 1 (Dirty), but nothing prepares you for the emotional journey, the highs and the lows, the LOVE! The chemistry between these two burns so hot, you can feel the heat coming off your reader!!

I honestly can't put into words how intensely

"Never let me go, Rhett."

Dear. LAWD!!!!!

Major applause for HJ Bellus!!

Darby and Rhett's story is as sexy as it is heart-wrenching!! Within the first few pages, you are trapped inside their world and you don't want out.

Each of these charcters have stories to tell. Both have heartbreak and demons that haunt them from moving forward with their lives. And what started off as just a fling, ends up being the one relationship they each needed more than they knew.

Heat, seduction, panty-melting sex.
Giggles, LOL moments and plain out ROTFLMAO moments.
Serious, sad and tearful moments too.

Murder, intrigue, suspense, sex, doubt (in themselves, each other and life in general), secrets, betrayals,misunderstandings, sex, pasts, politics, death and abuse - this book has all this and more! Did I mention the sex?! HOT HOT HOT

I loved the sharing of truths that Rhett and Darby did to learn more about each other. Rhett's tale of Costco had me laughing so hard. #shitha

Filthy by H.J. Bellus is the story of Darby and Rhett. It is the second book in The Reckless Series.

Rhett is helping Darby through a living nightmare. Darby lives with the aftermath of a split second decision. One that has affected her to the core. Neither meant to fall in love with the other, but sometimes when you let your shield down it happens. Rhett has been burned in the past. He never wants to love again, but Darby makes it impossible to not love her.

I am beyond in love with Darby and R

Rhett and Darby...they're filthy and I loved it! The chemistry between the two was off the charts. The storyline sucked me in and I couldn't read it fast enough. I really like the authors writing style and sense of humor that was peppered throughout the book.

Bellus left me speechless and wow'd.

I recieved an ARC for an honest review. It captured me from page 1 and didn't let go until the very end. I absolutely love Darby, she is very relatable. You feel what she feels and at some point. I think we all can relate to Darby in some way (like the jealousy she feels). Rhett.....Rhett what can I say about Rhett other than I kinda hated him at first for some of the choices he made, but I ended up really liking him. Rhett and Darby's relationship isn't your

This book blew me away.. We meet Rhett and Darby in the first book in the series Dirty and from that book I just knew Filthy was going to be a gut wrenching, heartbreaking hold onto your seat filthy ride. I just didn't know it was going to hit as hard as it did... Rhett with his cocky dirty mouth was hiding a very complex character who I fell more and more in love with as the book went on.

If you thought book one was dirty hot, then just wait until you get your hands on book two!!! It's scorching with hints of humor through out the book! I was thoroughly entertained while reading this book. I found myself not wanting to put the book down, I was so involved in the story and characters lives!!! Seriously great book in the series!!!

Mass Eye Rolls

This book could have been so good if the majority of the book wasn't about sex, sex and more sex. The author made the couple have so much sex, made their relationship about sex, their interactions about sex that I felt disconnected from the real crux of the story when it did happen. It was a really good story but the sex overkill killed the connection I might have had with the characters.

The H and H interaction were so cliche it earned eye rolls all throughout the book. At the end

Mind blown

I have read all of HJ Bellus' books and while I have loved each one in their own way, this f$cking book gutted and blew my mind. I struggle to write this review because I am I'm such awe of the storyline and the depth of these characters!!! There is a plot twist that will overwhelm you! The chapter that will gut you and make you ugly cry. You will doubt your faith in HJ Bellus and make you curse her over & over! I recommend reading this in the privacy of your own home!

Holy hell, this book destroyed me then put me back together.
We all met Darby and Rhett in Dirty. The flirty best friends of Ava and Zane that kept the moon in Dirty humorous, even in the dark times. As their story begins, it becomes apparent quickly that the pair are masters of deceit. Rhett and Darby wear perfect masks of being carefree and happy. Inside the two are broken and deeply in love. They fall back on raw, unadulterated passion to hide the true emotions, but no one can hide forever.

Awesome read! Great series!

Completely fell in love with Rhett & Darby just like j did Zane & Ava.

Darby and Rhett's relationship starts out as friends with benefits. Both of them have scars from the past they can't seem to escape giving them both insecurities and fears about starting a relationship. But Darby doesn't see loving anyone else and despite his playboy ways Rhett only has eyes for her.

With revelations of the past and facing demons they must come together and face them or risk
