Playboy Jaret Paxon has no pride. He’s filthy as fuck, and he doesn’t care. He’s got it all… Expensive cars, a luxurious home, and a killer smile. Flirting with girls at local clubs, his money gets him whatever he desires. Tight pussy around hungry cock. Night after night. Life is good.
Except it’s all a lie.
Wealth. Love. A family. Education. None of it is real. Jaret’s life is broken. Fucking makes him forget.
Until Lin, the only girl who understood him, stumbles back into his life. One kiss rekindles the sparks from long ago. Jaret wants her back, but he’s not the only one who screwed up. Dating the wrong guy got Lin into trouble. Now that Jaret’s in the middle, someone’s out for blood.
Lies turn into shame. Shame becomes pride. And when Jaret’s proud of something, he won’t let go without a fight.
Filthy is a novella in the Fierce series, featuring Jaret’s story.
Ever since we met Hunter’s mysterious roommate, Jaret, in Fierce I was intrigued. I wanted to know his story and eventually, when I realized what a good guy he was, I wanted him to find his own happily ever after. I’m so glad we got to hear Jaret’s voice in Filthy. I really enjoyed the direction Clarissa went with Jaret’s story. It was obvious from the rest of the Fierce series, that Jaret had a past that stayed with him and the history that unraveled over the course of this novella, fit perfectly with his personality and behavior throughout the series. I’ve been waiting for Jaret’s character to grow a little, to mature and evolve into someone I could connect with emotionally. We didn’t see enough of him before to really get a sense of who he is, I enjoyed finally filling in the pieces of him while I read Filthy.
Lin is definitely the ideal counterpart for Jaret. I loved that they had a history and that their reunion was completely unexpected and took them both by surprise. I fell a little bit harder for Jaret as I watched him make Lin’s happiness his mission. Lin and Jaret were put on a surprising path that had me completely enthralled. Their story was a fabulous combination of sweet, emotional, hot and suspenseful. It’s sometimes difficult to really get a satisfying and exciting journey out of a novella, while still delving deeply into the emotions of the characters. Filthy did not disappoint. Jaret’s story was unexpected and had me falling for him just a little bit more.
