Hattie Morris is a young girl with silly dreams and a fantasy she's been holding onto since she was sixteen years old.
"Dirty" Johnny Williams is a hard man who rides as a Notorious Devil, known for being filthy between the sheets, yet always wishing for the unattainable more.
One night, one kiss sets fate in motion, and neither Hattie, nor Johnny, can deny that their lives have been forever changed. Time and distance stand between them, but a chance encounter shatters their ability to resist each other any longer.
It's not long before Hattie realizes that fantasies are named thus for a reason, while Johnny learns that the innocence of a sweet girl is no match against his hardened heart.
Yet, inexperienced as she may be, Hattie knows one thing for sure. If she doesn't take a chance with this rough and rugged man, she'll never know if dreams really can come true.
"Action, drama, HOT as HADES sexy times scenes, ... Rough & Rugged gets 4.5 stars from me, and I’m looking forward to the next one" ~MJ's Book Blog and Reviews
"Hayley has once again pulled me into her world and I LOVED it. Hayley draws you right in with her writing and you will find yourself staying up late just to find out what will happen next." ~Michelle Austin (Goodreads)
3.5 Stars-Not My Favorite Notorious Devil
Hmmmm as a fan of this series, I really wasn't too sure about Dirty Johnny and after finishing the book, I feel the same way. Not too sure. I liked the guy, then he would actually talk and it all went out the window for me.
"I want to ruin her, dirty her up in every way imaginable. I want to make her cry and beg and destroy her." ~ Dirty Johnny
And that. Yes, he is Dirty Johnny and we got a peek of him in action before, however in your face Dirty Johnny was quite the handful. While I love an alpha as much as the next girl, I need a little balance in my guy. A little more this instead of so much that.
These MC guys are famous for loving and protecting thier woman and that's what I liked in this series. Sure they have a bossy side and it balances out with the sweet side. Hattie is a very young girl brought into a life she knows nothing about. Unlike Kent and Brent, who had some life experience under thier belts, Hattie has to learn about things from Johnny. A guy with a very heavy hand and very dirty mouth.
Like previous books in the series, Rough & Rugged is jam packed with action, some romance and steamy, steamy sex. Dirty Johnny sure lives up to his name. the club still has some trouble from outside forces and Hattie gets a quick lesson in what it really means to be an Old Lady.
Well written from dual points of view, Rough and Rugged did a great job at moving the series along. We are kept up to date with the former featured couples and Hayley Faiman sets up MadDogs book nicely. Hey, we can't love them all, but I will be patiently waiting for the next one.
I was pulled right into this story. This story contains heartbreak, pain, secrets, danger, and suspense.
If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first...
Rough and Rowdy (Notorious Devils MC, #1)
Rough and Raw (Notorious Devils MC, #2)
This is Hattie and Johnny's story. Hattie believes in fantasies. Her friends tend to put her in situations that could get her hurt r worst. Johnny saves her and lets her go even though the pull between them is strong. But one kiss with an older bad boy might change all her beliefs but not his. Can she count on a man with such a hardened heart to protect and love her or is that the true fantasy believing in what will never happen? With them being so different can a relationship ever work? There past and future plans are so different but will love really concur all?
I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.
I recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story from this author.
Hayley Faiman is a spectacular author that pushes boundaries and makes you read outside of the box. I only have experience with her writing in the Notorious Devils MC series but man does she kill it with each new release. This book right here was so amazing yet gritty, raw, and real. Dirty is gonna make you squirm, blush, and so much more.
Rough and Rugged was a fast, sexy, dirty, and intense read full of passion, lust, and love. This book will speak to your heart and send chills down your spine. The action... and suspense... get ready to get caught and intrigued from the first page.
Hattie and "Dirty" Johnny... yeah everything about them was right. I had big dreams for Dirty and he did not let me down. And Hattie... perfect in every way for him. Believe me, it wasn't easy and they went through he!! and back but in the end, it was all worth it.
Each tear... each frown... each smile... each laugh... every angry moment... every heart stropping event... every heartbreak... these two are going to rip your apart, pull at those heartstrings then piece you back together in the most perfect way. You just have to sit up, grab the edge of the seat and hang on for one crazy ride.
And as far as the set up for the next in this series? I CANNOT WAIT!
I highly recommend this book.
