My Review

I don’t think I’ve ever read a love story about a married couple quite like the one that Alessandra Torre just released. In some ways, it feels like a marriage case study, analyzing and illustrating the evolvement of Easton and Elle’s relationship, taking readers back to the couples’ beginning and then focusing on their present struggles as well as delving into Elle’s sexual desires and what they meant for their marriage and their future.

I will admit that it took me a bit to get into the story, partly because I couldn’t see the connection of the title to the content presented early on but also because even though I understood why the flashbacks needed to occur, it slowed the plot line now a bit, leaving me impatient to get to the heart of the story’s conflict.

Every time I read an Alessandra Torre romance, I’m never quite sure the path the story will take or the dynamics that she’ll put into play when it comes the main characters’ journey. And while there were typical marital issues that Easton and Elle needed to contend with, especially their individual insecurities, it was beyond clear that love and passion were not concerns for these two, but that didn’t mean they had the perfect marriage; it just meant that they were willing to work, willing to communicate, willing to compromise in order to stay together.

By the time I reached the end of Easton and Elle’s story, I felt like there was more to tell about these two and where their lives together were headed, so I’m hoping that the whispers of a follow-up are true and that Torre plans to continue examining their marriage and perhaps even give the supporting characters their own story, offering further details about who they are and how their relationships work.   

Filthy Vows is an intriguing and sexy story that allows readers an intimate look into the ups and downs and highs and lows of a marriage, illustrating that even a solid marriage can have its issues, but as long as honesty takes precedence and they’re both willing to give and take and give their partner their heart’s desire, any obstacle can be overcome and even the deepest desires can be told and maybe even explored.
