The entire Dirty series all in one collection - can't go wrong with that! It's dark and twisted, filled with action, suspense, intrigue and lots and lots of passion.

Dirty Beginning: 4 stars

Dirty Beginning is a prequel to Dirty Obsession and I can't wait to read it! It details the beginning of Nina and Arlo's twisted story. Nina is a silly, stupid little rich girl who's studying in Italy for a month. She apparently has a history of becoming obsessed with men, which has lead to her being in th

If you like dark, dirty suspense then this is the series for you! I don't typically read dark romances and I have to be honest some of it was a struggle for me to get through. BUT, I am glad I did. I found each book really well written and the storyline kept me engaged and wanting to read more. The transformation of each character had me actually liking them by the end....which is no small fete as I had several wtf moments. These books are not for the faint of heart so if you don't like dark and ...more

I read the books in this series when they were individually released and they were all fantastic! What follows are my original reviews I left for each book at the time they were released.

Dirty Beginning:
Wow! This is a great beginning to a new series! It is a short prequel that ends in a cliffhanger, but it kept me engaged the entire time. I had to keep reading to see what Nina was going to do next, and then I had to keep reading some more to see how Arlo was going to respond to her and what he w

These were dark, twisted, intense romances full of story lines that keep you guessing until the end. Not for the faint hearted as there’s plenty of rape, torture and murder. Even though the guys - Arlo, Matteo & Caspian we’re fully embracing the dark side of life you still end up liking them and wanting them to end up happy with their chosen ladies.

Nina obsesses over men. She meets a new target, Arlo. He warns her away many times saying he’s dangerous etc but she doesn’t heed his warning and e

Dark & Twisted

Ella Miles is a new to me author. This is a very dark, suspense filled series. Definitely not my typical read but I thought I’d venture out to try something new. This series is an attention getter which keeps you drawn in throughout each book. I found myself needing to turn the pages to find out what’s next for the characters. I found each character to have strength and the will power to survive all the obstacles in their way. This series is well written with well developed charact

Dirty Series: My overall rating is 4.5, and my individual books reviews follow:
*****Dirty Beginning: Just Wow...
I didn’t rate this book 5 stars because I liked it - because my feelings are a bit twisted on that. I rated it 5 stars because it was very well written and I couldn’t put it down. And while the ending is a cliff hanger, it’s ingenious. I’m not sure I want to see where this story goes, but I will read it because I have to know...

What exciting series. Nina and Arlo. It's clear that Nina has an unhealthy obsession with Arlo but she can't control herself. She is like an addict and loves the challenge. Arlo has a time with keeping her away from him and his family. As the series continue, FOREWARNING: There are disturbing triggers in these books. Do not purchase if sensitive to physically and sexually abuse. This is an incredible story, so realistic. You can almost believe the plot was based on true events. It is incredible ...more

I usually hate Romances that have cheating or sketchy consensual sex with others. The first introduction to Arlo and how he treats Nina when she tracks him down during the dinner party was pretty bad. But I have to say that the author’s introduction to Nina was such a hook! To lead with her crazy obsessions with men that showed her crazy compulsive behavior was a great hook! Because of her unstable personality, she actually makes a good match for Arlo as Nina doesn’t process his cruelty in the w ...more

Dirty, the complete series. This series was intense! It shows the deception of a family ruled by lust, power, and control. The Carini family ruled Italy through control of weapons, money, and dominance. They played games with people's lives and took out whoever got in their way. No one was safe. Nina and Eden were friends over in Italy going to school but Nina discovers a man she thought she had to have. She perused Arlo into a crazy web that nearly gets her and Eden killed by the Carini family. ...more

There’s always a bigger monster waiting for an opportunity to take over. Each book in this series has someone emerge that’s more brutal and dangerous than the previous guy. Will love be enough to tame them?

This series is very uneven, both in storylines and writing quality. It gets pretty unrealistic, even for a romance novel, and this hurts the story. For instance, in the third book, Gia is horribly beaten, almost daily—broken leg bones, internal injuries, a dislocated knee and more. She’s in ag

Dark romances that will horrify and surprise you!
by sewsummore

Be warned, this set of stories are dark romances that both horrified me with it's brutality and surprised me with it's happy endings. They say there is a fine line between love and hate and this book seems to walk that fine line. The charcters have survived events that would destroy most people and yet they do survive and gain strength from the experience. These stories are works of fiction and should be reguarded as such, if you don'

Amazing box set!

This box set was quite simply amazing! The set follows the Carini siblings Arlo, Mateo and Gia and their complicated and super HOT relationships with Nina, Eden and Caspian. 5 books with a complete story of each sibling and their significant other. There is a dark element here and there definitely are triggers for some with kidnapping and rape scenes. Extremely well written and impossible to put down.

Very well written, great character development. This book is brutal, it starts with one girls obsession but it is about the Carini family and their philosophy for running it "You should never be in anyone's debt...You won't just owe the person who helped you. You will owe everyone who had anything to do with the debt you incurred and paying them back will never end you will be trapped forever." Obsession turns to love for Nina and Arlo, Matteo and Eden, Gia and Caspian but they were only free to ...more

4.5 Stars! This is taking dysfunctional to the extreme. You have Arlo who is enraptured with this obsession Nina has for him and while he knows he shouldn't he pulls her into his families really dysfunctional game. The father, Enrico, is beyond an animal and thinks nothing of raping and torturing their victims. What will happen now that the game, is over? Will they be able to move on or will the obsessions, ruin what they have. Good characters, though really dark and a very twisted storyline. If ...more

Dirty: The Complete Series by Ella Miles. Holy Hotness! I have read a few of these books previously but I have to say it was no hardship enjoying them again as I read through the series. This set is very well written and filled with dark drama, sexy scenes and very vividly detailed descriptions. It is full of twists and surprises that kept me entertained. I recommend this to others looking for something edgy and different.

I can't say enough about this author, who, is so talented that they can tackle a subject with such a beautifully written storyline with characters that are so fleshed out that you feel like you are sitting on the sidelines watching as the story unfolds so flawlessly! This was one of those books that I hated to turn that very last page because I just wanted this story to continue, that is how invested I felt with these two characters!

I loved reading this book collection, it's good, hot, sexy and a very good read. I curled up with my hot tea, a warm blanket and couldn't put it down. It leaves me wanting to read more about the characters in books that characters come from and I plan to as I love a good book. Was a wonderful read throughout. The characters pull you in and make you want to read more. Keep it coming...

These books may cause some triggers for some people as these women are kid napped, beaten, and raped. But these women are bad aces and fight back, become stronger, and fall in love. You get Nina in books one and two the Eden for book three then Gia in book four, then the last book is with all characters leading chapters. Nina and Eden are best friends who both fall in love with Carini men, while Gia is a Carini. I really enjoyed these books. Voluntary review of an advanced reader's copy via book ...more
