Down And Dirty: A Single Dad Bad Boy Romance
By Annette Fields
Solomon (Sol) and Natalie.......
This review was difficult to write without giving you a wrong impression. First you need to know despite my negative comments, I did like this book. This was not my first book by Annette Fields and it won't be my last. I believe the end goal is to be entertained by a book, and I was with this one. Also, I hope you'll take my comments as information and not so much critique. Because we all have different tastes, what I think is ridiculous, you may not. That said, I'll be brief so I won't spoil anything for you.
Beyond her control, Natalie has been in a horrific situation for six months before she was able to get away. What she went though was downright tragic and life changing. The fact that she was not mentally affected by those circumstances and bounced back to reality so easily was unrealistic.
Sol takes Natalie in to help her. He opens his home to her and offers her a safe haven as well as kindness and protection. The fact he brings a stranger into his home and around his six year old daughter was also not something I'd agree with.
Sol is a hard criminal (says that in the blurb). A criminal is the very last person you'd expect someone in Natalie's position to feel safe with. But they had strong chemistry and an instant attraction so being together was unavoidable. I did feel the love they had for each other and I enjoyed watching their relationship develop. There is some angst, suspense and danger in the book. At one point I was worried where the story was going and my concern went to the characters. Though in the end it worked out that everyone got what they deserved. And I do mean everyone. I thought the epilogue was sweet and I was more than happy with the ending.
That said, this was a short, steamy story with some over the top situations. If you don't mind the 'unrealistic' in a story, you'll enjoy this book. I did.
This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it.
I read ALOT and the basic of the premise was ingenious and fantastically written. I kinda feel a little x cheated although I wish we would have had the COMPLETED finish. PLEASE don't take this the wrong way but I don't think this is over as I want to catch the person who started this (dealer)!!
This is a MAJOR Keeper!
Natalie was a sex slave for six months and was abused and raped repeatedly during that time. The first night at Solomon's house, she tries to exchange sex for her safety and Solomon turns her down. That makes some sense because Natalie was conditioned to use her body as a commodity. But within three days and of being rescued she is totally recovered from her six months of rape and abuse and is ready to start a serious relationship with Solomon.
This is the point where the story became frustrating. If an author wants to write about a main character who is rescued from sexual slavery, the author should at least write a reasonable story that addresses the issues a woman would face once she is freed. I don't understand why the author wouldn't take the time to show how Natalie recovers from being beaten, starved, and raped repeatedly. If the author doesn't know how to do that, skip forward a year and explain that the main character had been going to therapy or something. If an author wants to use a main character who has that as a back story, the author owes the reader, and her character, a believable and reasonable recovery from that trauma.
Besides glossing over the rape trauma, Natalie does other things that don't ring true. She doesn't make a serious effort to get in touch with her dad and let him know she is okay. Wouldn't a crime boss would have access to a burner phone so Natalie could let her dad know she was alive? This would have been so easy to do, but being with Solomon was more important to Natalie than reassuring her greatly beloved dad she was okay. Also Natalie didn't actively do anything to save the other 12 women after Solomon expressed his reluctance to get involved. The only reason I finished the book was because I wanted to know what happened to the other women. Apparently, I was more concerned about them than Natalie was.
