I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

As a reader this was my first taboo novel , by moments this book scared the S*hit out of me , but then I remind myself what kind of book i was reading and once that happened OH GOD WHAT A GREAT TIME I HAVE.

The chemistry was on point , Jett and Manson had an interesting road together , I believed their connection , I enjoyed their conversations and the sex was ON POINT

This one was so very taboo and oh so dirty in content.
its quite a short read, novella-length and centres on Jett and Mason after they both reconnect after six years apart.
Jett now 18 wants to know just why Mason exited her life six years ago.
She is also dealing with the bombshell that Mason is not actually her biological father as she's been led to believe.
So as I mentioned earlier dirty and taboo also sexy and sensual with a massive dash of the forbidden fruit, what I didn't find was dark

“I’d fallen in love with the man who was once my father”.

My disappointment is so real right now. I was so excited to go into this one because it was said to have DDLG elements and I’m absolute trash for that. Once I started reading though, I didn’t get what I was expecting.

I have no issues with taboo topics. Hell, I’m super intrigued by them. So where did this go wrong for me? I felt as if the author kept wanting to remind you that this was taboo. While reading I almost felt myself thinking

Erotically delicious, filthy dark, push all your buttons …. Romance? Maybe. I’m not quite set on what to call it, but I can tell you that the title of the book does not lie. This is an age-gap story at its base. That will automatically categorize it as taboo and forbidden. It is all that and a heck of a lot more! It is pretty, it is dark, and it is dirty. Do not expect anything less and do not assume it is anything other than that.

I’m not going to go thru plot points with you, but if you’re new
Unusual and precious, this Daddy story goes beyond what I expected. It is written with elegance and emotion, and it is capable of dealing with a pretty much forbidden theme in a touching way.

Family secrets, art, taboo love and eroticism mingle in this romance between estranged father and daughter. Or so they seem. The female character has many questions about her origins but also about why her father left her when she was still young.

The reunion after years plunges them in the middle of

Sometimes, when I start to read a ‘Daddy’ book I cringe. I can usually tell in the first paragraph or two whether I’m going to like it or not.
I love my Daddy books but I have certain requirements…

It must be classy while still being naughty.

There must be a good back story for me to see into the characters personalities and reasons.

Quick Summary
18 year old Jetty is meeting with Mason, the man she grew up thinking was her father, after several years of silence from him. She thinks she’s ready to get some answers as to why her mother completely cut him out of their lives, why he allowed her mother to keep them apart and why they both lied about her paternity.

What she ends up discovering is a lot of tragic family history and developing feelings for a man that the whole world would judge and condemn.

This book does deal with
Jett is an eighteen year old woman trying to find out about her past. Mason was called her father until she was twelve and then he just left her and her mother. She is visiting Mason after finding out the that he isn't her biological father. A relationship begins to develop between them that isn't anything like a parent/child. Will the couple be able to have a relationship without the past coming between them? A steamy taboo, age gap, kinky read.

There is something about these kinds of stories, oh so naughty and guaranteed to bring plenty of drama. Mason, a famous artist and until she was twelve, was Jett's father.

This one gave me pause. I am a huge fan of edgy romance but this one was a little bit much for my taste. The element of Taboo is obvious from the start but Margot's writing drew me in. The farther along in the story I got, the more I could see how this particular relationship could happen. Margot was able to lead me to acceptance of Mason and Jett's relationship as unique to them. This is a good read if you can keep an open mind and heart.

I can't say enough how much I LOVED this story. This was definitely a taboo love story, it was along the line of a K Webster book. I have suuuuuch a soft spot for DDLG content. This was such a great love story unconventional but great. Mason was so hot, and I adored him. Jetty was adorable and I could relate to her emotion wise. I'm sure this won't be for everyone but I fell in love, I'm also new to this author and I'm really looking forward to reading more from her. Absolutely five stars. - By ...more

I've read books by this author before and I always love her style of writing.

Jett ' Jetty ' is a young woman who has just turned 18 years old.
She has always felt abandoned by her father because her mother never told her the truth. From a young age her mother has lied to her but for her own good. Jett decided she wanted to look for her father.

Mason ' daddy ' is a man that brought her up from being born until the age of 12 even though he isn't her biological father, however that is until one day

A story full of surprises! Debra @ Janise’s Jivin’ Book Blog

This story had a little more depth to it then some of daddy type books I have read in the past. It made it tragic but a great read due to this realism.

I enjoyed the heat, the love, the overall story itself. I was not surprised I enjoyed the story just surprised at how deep it got. It shows that what you see is not always the way it really is. You truly have to read it all the way through to get out the other side saying that was truly

Jett hasn't seen her father, Mason, in 6yrs. Ever since he disappeared without a word, and now she wants answers....but is she ready for what could happen?

This is definitely taboo, definitely hot and definitely NOT what I was was BETTER than I could imagine!

Does Jett get her Dad back or does she get a Daddy instead...I know what happens, but I'll never tell

4 1/2 Stars

So many taboo themes in this haunting and somewhat shocking romance between Mason and Jett. Well written and emotionally intense as their love for each other exploded with passion without boundaries.
Mason’s desire for Jett was hovering on the edge of creepy. The author managed to convince me that their love was purer than it seemed, but just barely.
Definitely not a fairytale romance!

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I was pleasantly surprised by the story of Mason and Jett it was a passionate, slow burn angst ridden taboo story of love that’s not in the least an easy or straight road. The story had all the earmarks of Margot Scott’s quick and sometimes dirty insta-love older man/younger woman classics that I’ve come to enjoy. However, there were so many layers to both the hero and the heroine. Mason was definitely an alpha male but he wasn’t an asshole he cared for everyone that was important to him in his ...more

errrmmmm... So this is a first for me.

Jett is 18 and comes to New York to see Mason, the man she thought was her father for most of her life. Mason left Jett when she was 12, never hearing from him again. Jett then finds out that the man she has been missing for 6 years, wasn't actually her father. Going to New York, she's expecting answers, and closure. What she gets is more questions and sexual confusion for a man she still thinks of as her father...

Wow, my kindle caught fire!! This book deals with taboos that many authors would try to steer clear of. The subject was handled with compassion, with a real effort to try and convey the conflicting emotions about what the central characters Jett and Mason feel for each other and what is acceptable by society. Jett is now 18 years old and just found out that her mother had lied. Her father didn’t abandon her six years ago on his own accord, in fact, he wasn’t her biological father at all. When ...more

Once I got past the ook factors, I decided that I liked this story a lot. The characters were interesting and different.

Jett is a young woman searching for answers. She had Mason for part of her life as her father, but then he disappeared without explanation. Years later, she has found him, but she's also found out that he isn't her father. Jett hopes that he can give her clues to find her biological father as well as a reason why he left and never contacted her again. Mason refuses to give her
HANNAH (Books, Films, and Tea)
Pretty, Dark, and Dirty by Margot Scott was an extremely taboo romance. Jett is an 18 year old girl who thinks her father Mason abandoned her when she was 12. When she sees him years later at a gallery show, she wants to know why he abandoned her. She also wants to confront him after learning that Mason is not her biological father. They begin to feel more than father-daughter love for each other, but they still have to confront their past. I thought this was just a bit too taboo for me. Jett ...more

This was a first for me. I don’t read many taboo storylines (if ever), and new-to-me authors are rare for me but this one grabbed my interest.

However, this book felt like a made-for-TV storyline for Law & Order: SVU . . .

It’s definitely dark . . . and unbiologically twisted (if that’s even a word).

Mason and Jett were a father/daughter duo. He raised her until she was 12. Then he left the picture. She wants answers and goes after them by finding him. The book started out fairly well. I do

Ummm where to start with this one.....FIRST let me say that this book was amazingly written and I enjoyed reading it because the flow and story were super natural. Didn't feel rushed or drawn out..just very smooth. BUT the reason I am only giving 4 stars is because of my own personal opinion on the Daddy/Daughter thing. I knew that's what the book was about, so I was prepared for the taboo, however some of the things in there just didn't sit with me very well. I am not going to list what (I hate ...more

I'm going to tell you right upfront that this is one of those books. You are either going to embrace it because it pushes boundaries or detest it because it is too forbidden and it makes you uncomfortable and you know what? That is perfectly fine because everyone is allowed their opinion but I also think this is a book that is going to cause a lot of controversy, so if you want to read it, I suggest you get to it ASAP before the fallout starts. Now, as for myself I enjoyed this book. This is a ...more

Being 100% honest here, I was highly disappointed by this book to the point where I felt let down and cheated and I'm being generous with 2 star becauseit actuallyis more of a 1 - 1.5 star read. I was super excited when the blurp mentioned this novella was dark and taboo. Dark and taboo is my jam; however I felt like this one didn't hit the mark. It felt like the author was trying to hard, reminding readers every chapter how forbidden H & H's attraction and relationship is. It was too much ...more

Pretty, Dark & Dirty by Margot Scott is the story of Jett (Jetty) and Manson.
Jett and Manson had a familiar type relationship up until she was 12 then Manson just disappeared out of her life with no warning which broke her heart. Fast forward to now. Jett is 18, has just graduated HS and is in NYC to see Manson to find out why he left her life. The answer closes one door and opens another world between them.

Naughty and Delicious!

DAMN! This story was so naughty it was delicious! It definitely has some dark elements to it and deals with a taboo subject but is worth the read. The characters are great even though Jett is sometimes a bit immature, she does eventually show some maturity when it comes to certain situations. Mason is a sexy artist and Jett's former dad. Mason tries very hard to keep away from Jett but there is an undeniable attraction and chemistry between them. They are drawn to each

“In the end, maybe we were both monsters for wanting what was forbidden.”

Before I get started, Pretty, Dark, & Dirty is a VERY forbidden and taboo story that is not for all readers. If you have an open mind and taboo relationships don’t bother you, then this story might work for you.

Mason and Jett, father and daughter. So wrong it feels so right?

This story was a little lacking for me. The plot just wasn’t there. The relationship doesn’t/didn’t bother me. I’m very open to taboo and forbidden
