She’s sweet, pure, and untouched, and she’s about to lose her innocence on camera. To me.

Trust me, I’m no porn star, even if I do have the equipment of one. But when the Moretti crime family comes calling to collect on a debt I owe, they want it in trade.

You see, there’s big money in dirty movies, and the more real, the better. Me? I’m already filthy, damaged goods from my

3.5 for my first read from this author!

A virgin who has to pay her uncles debts, and a guy who supposedly lost his boss a bunch of money are made to do a porn video together. Of course they fall in love. Anyway. Good read if you have KU. It ends at like 30% percent and there sneak peeks and two other stories included.

I read the dirty bad things series together and all the stories and the sex scenes bled into each other.

This one is about a virgin who they are forcing to star in a porno. The Insta love is real but the sex scenes are hot enough to make you forgot this plot isn't so deep.
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Hard Core by Madison Faye is the First book in the "Dirty Bad Things" Series. This is the story of Dylan and Rose.
In Vegas Dylan was to be looking after a large sum of money for the Moretti family mafia...but it gets stolen. Now Moretti is looking to get their money back from him via a porn movie. Moretti are starting up a Porn movie business and think Dylan would be a perfect Star in their movie.

Hard Core is a dual POV from Dylan and Rose. They both have to deal with debts to the Moretti mafia family. Not what you're thinking because I honestly had no idea what they were going to do to pay back their debt. Spoiler alert: porn.

That's the only thing I'm going to spoil about this book because honestly that's not going to really spoil anything about this book. Yes, it has sex but some of it is all for this whole porno thing that the new guy in the mafia wants to do.

Cringing? You should be.

Yet another awesome series: Madison Faye outdoes herself repeatedly, and I am hooked.
Just to give you an idea of how obsessed I am, I'll let you in on a little secret: as I'm writing this reviews, I still have 12 to write - because apparently I enjoy procrastinating way too much - and, out of those 12, 11 are of Madison Faye book.
Yeah, you could say I've been on a binge of sorts, and I regret nothing.


This is book 1 in the series and each book can be read as a standalone and perhaps even out of o

Okay, here's the thing..



this is THE FIRST time in my very colorful reading life that I have read a trope like this!

Fkn amazing!

I mean.. Come on!

Rose is stuck for a debt that was thrown on her to be paid back and Dylan actually owes a lot!

So what happens when they both owe it to the same Sonofabitch??

He stars them in a porn!




But trust me.. This is soooo good. I ate this up faster than anything. I am the biggest insta smut fan but anything involving more than two people is a huge RED NO for me

Although I liked this book, it wasn't "great". I loved the premise, I truly did love Dylan and Rose. I am not sure what was "missing" exactly but it didn;t give me the butterfly feeling that I have had with other books from this author.

All in all a short, quick, smutty and very insta everything book!

I enjoy Faye's writing. This was good. I liked it but wasn't my favorite of hers. The hero didn't do it for me.Got the next book so I will see if I can warm up to the hero.

Holy hot blazing inferno I think “Hard Core” just gave me heatstroke… or maybe I’m just still blushing… Wow, that was ENORMOUSLY entertaining and should come with a warning label… WARNING: Please use extreme caution while reading in public… or private!

“Hard Core” is an extremely fast paced (deliciously dirty) professionally written (filthy) novella featuring one lickable… ahem, I mean… likeable hero and one sweet, innocent virgin. The lead character’s find themselves thrus

Hot core, more like it :-D Las Vegas, a twistedly fun and naughty plot, a big endowed ex-Marine, and an innocent young woman all mix to create a really good smut romance.

I don't know if she read my mind, but this author has improved one aspect I missed in some of her stories. This time, the main characters do a lot more dialogue and connection than usual, and adding that to other scenes with more characters and plot development, really made a good impact on the overall sensation.

"He moves even closer, and when his hand slides up my arm, I shiver. His fingers push through my hair, brushing it from my face as he moves a mere few inches away from me. The hand cups my jaw, and when I feel the power and possessiveness of that touch, something ignites inside of me."

I absolutely look forward to everything Madison Faye writes! Hard Core is all packed with dirty bad things and they'll keep you craving so much more from this series. When Rose's "Uncle Vinny" gets killed, Nico Mor

I knew I'd regret this but I'm such a sucker for a sexy cover. It was immediately just way too excessive. Upon seeing that she has the wholesome girl next door looks he immediately deems her an angel and then he uses it so often that by the time I quit in chapter six I never wanted to see the word again. It had all the feel of Insta love except there were no actual romantic feelings. The Insta lust was also real but dear god she used some cringey language: "the cum boils hot in my balls" dude yo ...more

Hard Core was a fast paced insta love erotic story. It isn’t very long but while there is a lot going on you aren’t left with the feeling that anything was missing. It was sexy, it was hot but at the same time I wanted more. Yes sort of contradictory but not that is was lacking I just wanted more of the story between Dylan and Rose. I enjoyed the added mafia angle element to the story and the payment of suppo

Oh Madison... you might be new to me and I've only read a couple things by you but holy smokes did you set my panties on fire and completely stole my heart.

Sexy. Sweet. Easy. Safe. Madison Faye is NOT an author that you want to miss. Hard Core was everything it promised to be... in a dirty little package that packed a serious punch with a whole lotta heat.

He owes the mob. She's paying off a debt. When their worlds collide, it's epic, unforgettable, and totally undeniable. She wants him a

This is a HOT steamy sexy story, so be warned where you read this book!

Rose and Dylan are forced into something neither of them thought they would ever have to do. Both have their own reasons for being where they are at that moment. But Dylan will protect Rose with everything he has. Rose will do everything she can to protect her sister.

The mafia is bound to make more money and they want to make it in the porn industry. So that is where Dylan and Rose come in. And even if they are unwilling the

This is a fast-paced read that is off the charts hot. Rose and Dylan both owe the Moretti crime family and they plan on getting their payment by making a dirty movie. Can Dylan protect sweet and innocent Rose? I liked the story and the chemistry is steamy. A good read, looking forward to more in the series.

Another hit from Miss Madison!! I loved this book, scary yet sexy and suspenseful!

Great writing as usual along with very well developed characters, especially for a novella.

I hope you enjoy!! Happy reading!!!!

Quick smutty read by Madison Faye. Dylan and Rose's love definitely doesn't start the way we anticipate it, but it ends beautifully. From the sexy smut, to the plot and romance, this short read was a good start to the series.

Please break the rules a little bit and out with being the goodie two shoe! I always see the same sort of storylines with the heroine and the hero.

Rose is paying a debt her dead uncle leaves behind, forced to give up her virginity in a porn video. She meets rough and growly Jason who also has to pay back his boss for money he owes. Jason wants nothing more then to save Rose but she can't leave if she does Nico (bad guy) would kill her sister or make her go through what Rose is going through.

The connection is high and sizzling between the two, does rose give up her vcard on camera? Does Jason get them out of this?

Once again Madison Faye knows how to bring the insta-love in Kindle melting fashion. Dylan works for the Mafia and unfortunately during his last pickup the guy he was working with died and the money was stolen. They blame Dylan for it going south, even though he tried to tell them that Vinny switched sides and was helping the men who robbed them and so Dylan killed him.
