Face of an angel.
Body of a god.
And a mouth so dirty he could make the devil blush…
Fix Marcosa’s time can be bought with money, but he isn’t selling sex. Murderers, rapists, criminals: if you’re on the wrong side of Fix’s moral code, you’re in trouble. The kind of trouble that winds up getting you killed. As a hitman for hire, Fix is no stranger to violence. He’s merciless. Relentless. A true savage, down to the roots of his very soul. You can beg. You can plead. You can pray, but it won’t do you any good. Once the tall, dark stranger arrives at your doorstep, it’s already too late to repent.
Sera Lafferty’s no stranger to heartbreak. With an abusive father and a dependant sister, her life has been one of sacrifice and compromise. As soon as she sets eyes on Felix ‘Fix’ Marcosa, she recognizes the darkness in him and makes a vow: she will not get involved. But trapped inside a motel room with the sexiest man to ever walk the earth? Throw in some tequila and the storm to end all storms, and Sera finds herself worshipping at the altar of Marcosa.
She knows she made a mistake.
She knows she needs to run.
But when she witnesses the assassin at work first hand, she knows it’s far too late. Thrown into the back of his sleek black ride, Sera finds herself trapped, and in more way than one. Fix is deadly. He’s demanding, he’s dirty, and he’s determined to claim her for his own.
Felix ‘Fix’ Marcosa is an enigma, not only because the pious man he used to be contrasts drastically with the cold-blinded killer he’s turned into but also because, despite his sinful profession and his dirty mouth, Fix is as honest as they come, which complicates how Sera Lafferty sees him, especially after they share a drunken night of dirtying one another up in the most decadent of ways and then she proceeds to witness Fix complete a contract and does nothing to stop it.
But it’s not just Fix whose past has changed who he is…Sera’s childhood is seeped in abuse and anguish, and her memories have quite the hold on her present, even if she’s unwilling to admit it. Despite her scars, though, Sera is a fierce fighter who protected herself and her younger sister as much as she could and then
It’s clear that Sera’s not Fix’s usual type, which becomes even more interesting once some of the details of his past are revealed; there’s a reason he’s drawn to her…there’s a reason he can’t stop thinking about her taste and the way her body felt against his. She’s not the ‘prissy princess’ he stereotyped her as in the beginning; there’s a story behind all of her actions and even though he should cut and run and allow Sera to move on with her life, putting the bullshit behind her, he can’t help but want to keep her, although with where Dirty ends, I’m not sure they’ll ever see eye-to-eye again.
Based on the darker side of her romances and the tortured, anti-hero male characters she creates, Callie Hart adores taking her readers on one hell of a complex and adventurous ride, where it’s clear that the heroine should run like heck away from the man whose gotten under her skin, but she can’t seem to pull herself away from the invisible tether that binds her to him in all the right and all the wrong ways.
Fix and Sera may have entered one another’s life by accident, but now Sera has put herself in a rather precarious position when it comes to what she knows about Fix and the insurance Fix needs to keep from being thrown in prison. And then when everything plays out between them and new insights are learned, there’s no telling where they go from here because the only thing they both know for sure is that their lives as they know them will never be the same!
