Title: Filthy Desire
Author: Sebastian Ex
Release Date: March 4, 2015
My name is Matthew Weston. Don't call me anything else, because I won't respond. And if you think you can get away with whimpering ‘Matt’ while I have you tied to the bed, about to devour you, it'll end up being your loss.
Men like me don't talk about feelings. We just don't.
I have read some really great books lately and this debut by Sebastian Ex is another. Once I started reading, I couldn’t stop, and I’m thanking the PTB that it was short enough to polish off in a night and not get to bed at 3am again!
Matthew (don’t call me Matt) Weston owns a burlesque club with best friend, Brandon. Ella comes for a job interview, her appearance ratty and unkempt, but somehow capturing the attention of this domineering man. He does have a policy in place to not sleep with his employees… It may take a while, but, you guessed it, he breaks his own rules.
Ella has a horrid past. Absolutely f**kin’ horrid. Kicked out of the foster care system at eighteen, she was taken in (yes, both meanings, folks) by an arsehole who truly deserves to have his nuts lopped off. I’m not holding back; the mere mention of the character who only ever makes an appearance through Ella’s explanations makes me want to backhand him. With a brick. To the head. She has walls built around her that Matt (yes, she defies him at every turn there and refuses to call him Matthew!! Spitfire!) is gradually breaking down as he declares her as his, and his alone. He’s determined not to let her go or for harm to come to her.
I really, really enjoyed this first novel from Sebastian Ex and look forward to what he comes up with next. It was well written, with great characters to watch grow throughout the course of the story. It was lovely and clean (and by clean, I mean editing. It was lovely and dirty in other parts!), and was a smooth and easily read to power through. 3 hours it took, and that was with an indulgence of pie and ice cream…
I know I’m a 5 star whore, but I truly enjoyed the read. There was nothing about it I didn’t like (apart from arsehole f**ksticks like deserves-a-brick-to-the-face guy). Indulge yourself today in some Filthy Desires. xxx
