 FILTHY A Stand Alone Damaged Romance #2) by Michelle Horst

TITLE: FILTHY
SERIES: A Stand Alone Damaged Romance #2)
AUTHOR: Michelle Horse
GENRE: Romance
PUBLICATION: July 26th, 2017
Fractured. Unwanted. Filthy. 

I'm only good for sex. That’s what I've been trained for my whole life. I'm a puppet. I only know how to be your perfect fantasy. It’s the only life I’ve ever known … until him. 

I’ve been replaced, discarded like trash. Beaten, damaged, treated like an animal, I’m forced to leave the only home I’ve ever known.

With a warped perception of what life is really like, no dignity, and no one to call my own, I’m on the verge of giving up. 

But then he saves me. For the first time in my life I’m given a choice. I can stay and have a purpose again, or I can leave and face the unknown on my own.

I choose to stay. I choose to belong. I choose to become something more than damaged goods.

Hope. It’s the one thing that kept me going. At first I hoped that I would be the perfect slave, but now I hope to be the perfect woman. He’s my damaged hero.

I want him to see me. The woman. The survivor.

He gives me strength. But all I want is his heart.

FILTHY: is the second book in Michelle Horst’s (Damaged Romance) series and is spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ This is Adams and Sophia’s story. 

I for one am so glad we get to read ex marine Adam’s POV!! I dived into this as soon as it was boomeranged onto my kindle and didn’t put it down until I’d inhaled that last page. 

PAST: In the ’Prologue’ we’re introduced to a nineteen year old Sophia, Sophia’s mother died giving birth to Sophia so Sophia was raised by other slaves until she became of age to be trained in the art of submission she has never known any other life other than the one she was dealt. Every day living within the slave quarters was a battle between survival and death. There is no place there for weakness, keep your head down, please your master and do your job. 

➼ If I can't please my master then I am not worth anything. I’ll be nothing. 

TO PRESENT DAY: Now we meet Sophia at twenty two years of age. It’ the night of the party where all the guests will be arriving, this is the first party ever to be held at the house. Attending this party are five men and only one woman. 

This takes us right back to the beginning of ‘Dirty’ where River & Adam were infiltrating a married couple (the Ryland’s) on the look out for two new slaves to add to their collection, The deeper we did into the world of human trafficking, the more fucked up it gets. being that this is Adam’s POV we read what raced through his mind when he first encountered Sophia. He tries to instil some form of calm and safety in her when they spend the night together before leaving the next day but all she sees is rejection. 

➼ This man is different from all other Masters I’ve had. Nothing I try works with him. I tried showing him that Im submissive by scooting cluster to him but it didn’t work. 

Without any warning we’re thrown head first into the brutal punishment that was dished out to her by one of the Masters. My heart broke into smithereens with what she endured. It’s not glossed over, it’s in vivd detail, there is no hiding from or escaping from what was done to her. Every word, every sentence is stamped on your brain. 

Freedom is near, now it’s a race against time to heal her. Safe.

➼ There will be no more kneeling, no more looking at the floor, and no calling us master or mistress. You’ll call me Adam. Just Adam. Not master Adam. 

❀ MY THOUGHTS: ❀ This was so beautifully done, what could’ve been a truly dark, gritty read was done tastefully and sensitively but still may cause triggers for some. This author is truly brilliant with her ability to write such a sensitive gut wrenching story that will pull on your heart strings and play on your mind even after you’ve put the book down. In some ways I preferred this one over BOOK#1 only because it felt like I was there living the life Sophia was subjected to, the turmoil that raced through her mind thinking she was unworthy, the sadness I felt with everything she was subjected to, she never knew any other life other than the one she lived. The wrong doing done to her not only by men but women too, used and abused in every way.
