★★ PURCHASE Dirty English Today!★★

**Dirty English is a modern love story inspired by Pride and Prejudice**



 A scarred fighter.
A girl with rules.
One night of unbridled passion.

There are three things you need to know about Elizabeth Bennett: she’s smart as a whip, always in control, and lives by a set of carefully crafted rules. She’s learned the hard way that people you love the most always hurt you in the end.

But then she meets Declan Blay, the new neighbor at her apartment complex.

A tattooed British street fighter, he’s the campus bad boy she’s supposed to avoid, but when he saves her from a frat party gone bad, all her rules about sex and love fly out the window.

She gives him one night of unbridled passion, but he longs for more.

With only a cardboard-thin wall separating their bedrooms, he dreams of possessing the vulnerable girl next door forever.

One night. Two damaged hearts. The passion of a lifetime.





I LOVED Dirty English. Ilsa Madden-Mills really out did herself with this modern twist on Pride and Prejudice. The story leapt off the pages and I truly fell in love with the characters Declan and Elizabeth.
Declan is the sexist man on campus according to the student body but it was fact. He’s drop dead gorgeous covered with beautiful tattoos. Elizabeth is a silent beauty who keeps to herself for reasons she holds close to her chest. She only has one night stands and avoids relationships like she is allergic.
When these two move into apartments next to each other the spark fly and attraction becomes hard to resist. Even though Declan is an underground fighter he is sweet and gentle with Elizabeth. He was kind and protective and then throw in a sexy British accent and I was swooning.
Elizabeth was a strong female character. She had been through so crappy things but she picked herself up and dusted herself off and promised herself to be strong and stand on her own two feet. Her mind only wanted Declan for one night but her heart had other ideas.
The writing of Dirty English is great! The story line was a great take on P&P and characters felt real. The supporting characters in this story were really great too. Declan’s twin brother Dax is a perfect combination of wise ass and sweet and funny. And of course he was sexy.
The feels in this book cannot described, this book must be bumped to the front of your TBR! One of my favorites of the year!



I did a blind read of Dirty English. Yup. I had no idea what I was getting my hands on before I started. What I did know is the book was written by Ilsa Madden-Mills, and that was enough for me. What I discovered was a perfectly written novel that is one of the best stories of 2015. Everyone must get their hands on Dirty English and experience Declan and Elizabeth.

First off, I loved Elizabeth. There's something genuine and strong about her character that makes it easy to relate and cheer for her success. Her life hasn't come easy, but she certainly hasn't made any excuses for herself and doesn't dwell on her regrets and mistakes. She's a fighter and that fiery spirit drew Declan in before he realized he never stood a chance against their connection.

Obviously if you've experienced a story written by Madden-Mills, you know she's not shy about the drama and angst. Dirty English is no exception. There's plenty of twists to keep the plot interesting and the reader engaged. I personally couldn't pry my eyes off my kindle while reading this book. It's that fantastic. Pair the angst with an inferno of chemistry and attraction between Elizabeth and Declan and you've got a story that readers will rave about long after they finish.

Get your hands on Dirty English today and treat yourself to one of the must read novels this year!



 “Come to my apartment and spend the night with me.” I touched his face, my fingers stroking the softness of his sensuous lips. “Just one night and we can make this shitty world disappear.”
He exhaled. “A one-night stand?”
“Yeah.”
He cupped my chin. “Someone hurt you, didn’t they?”
My lips tightened. No one at Whitman knew about Colby except for Shelley and Blake, and I sure as hell wasn’t telling him. He’d judge me like everyone else had in Petal, North Carolina. “That’s none of your business.”
“I see.” His eyes searched mine until I felt like a bug under a microscope. “What if I wanted more than just one night?”
“Then your hands can let go of my hips now.”
He removed his hands slowly, the tips of his fingers grazing mine. “This may surprise you, but I don’t sleep with every girl I kiss.”
I’d been rejected. Again. “Blake said you got around, that you used—”
“And you believed him?” His voice was incredulous. “Dude is in love with you and he saw exactly how we looked at each other tonight—”
Looked at each other? What are you talking about? You refused to dance with me and then you ran off with your girlfriend. Not to mention I just kissed you and you didn’t even care.” I threw my hands up.
“I wanted to fuck you the minute you walked in that party,” he snapped.
“Then why don’t you,” I bit out, tossing back my shoulders.
“You think you want me?” he said tightly. “You can’t handle me, Elizabeth. I can see it in your eyes. You’re scared of something, maybe not me, but something.”
My eyes went to his black eye.
He let out a harsh laugh. “Ah, that’s what you’re afraid of. You want the real truth? You told me tonight you didn’t like violence, but I’m an arsehole who uses his fists. That’s who I am.”
“What do you mean?”
His gaze was intense, dark and low, his face struggling as he fought to find the right words. “I’m in a fight club for money. I show up at warehouses and fight other blokes. Sometimes I beat them so bad they need medical attention. A few times, I’ve been beat to unconsciousness. I’m everything you need to stay away from.”
I inhaled, anger and lust and excitement all riding me. Anger that he was pushing me away, lust for the alpha male in him, and God help me, the fighting thing repelled me and excited me at the same time. “I don’t want to stay away from you. I want you to fuck me and stop making excuses for why you can’t.”
My words seemed to snap his taut restraint.
He pulled me back in his arms, his lips fusing with mine unerringly. His tongue plundered me in a sensual way my body had craved for years. I wrapped my arms around his neck, my anger morphing into all-out desire as he turned us and pressed me against the wall.
Yes, yes, this is what I craved.
A passion to remind me that I was real, not just some sad excuse of a girl who chose to exist on scraps of love.
Before I knew it, he’d shoved my robe off, his hands sculpting my shoulders, massaging them as he ravaged my mouth. I reveled in the warmth of his hand on my neck as his mouth skated down, kissing the hollows of my throat, sucking on my collarbone.
“Like this?” he asked, his voice dark and gravelly. “You want me to take you up against this wall?”
“Yes,” I moaned. Gone. Past caring as long as he kept his hands on me.
Out of control, my brain whispered, but I beat back the dark warnings as his warm hand found my breast and squeezed, his fingers rolling my nipple between his thumb and forefinger.
I gasped in pleasure and arched my back to get closer to his body, ignoring the fear that pricked at the surface.
The rules girl in my head stamped her foot and yelled at me. I ignored her.
But even if I wanted to stop right now, I couldn’t. My tongue tangled wildly with his, my hands pulled at his hair, spurring him on, his hand palming my breast and then tugging. Sharp sensations of need went straight to my core.
“Is this what you want? Something quick where we just take what we want and forget each other the next day?”
No. Not that. Not like the way he said it, like it was something dirty.
“Yes, like that,” I whispered against his shoulder, my mouth on his skin, tasting him as my teeth bit down.
