Dirty Series by Cheryl McIntyre

Serials... They are the new series. Less wait time between books, more action & smaller page count. I am seriously in love with them. 
Dirty is no exception it's gritty, violent, sad & heart warming. 

This story was amazing. It hooked me right away...

Eighteen. That’s how many times I was stabbed with a flaying knife. I remember eight.
Five. That’s how many surgeries it took to repair all the damage. The damage caused to my body. Not my mind. Not my heart. There’s no repairing those.
Ten. The number of months I spent in the hospital.
Four. Months in rehab.
Fourteen hundred and sixty. That’s the number of days I shouldn’t have been living. If this is living. I feel dead inside.
This is what my life is now. A dead man, inside a scarred body, living only for revenge.”

I loved these two broken souls. 

Linken was so strong and had such an amazing heart. His love was pure and so honest. Life just completely gutted him. Bent on revenge and blind to everything else. 

Rocky was bad ass on the surface, tainted by the ass kicking life served her. Barely existing in a fog of false bravado & booze. 

They met they click and I can't say much more without spoiling. A friend said, "It's like dark chocolate, you just want to savor it so it lasts forever." She was so right! I just wanted it to go on forever. I loved these two.  I wanted to curl up with them for winter. It was sad but not in an ugly obvious way. It was quiet and heart wrenching and I didn't know I was crying until the tears hit the screen.

Only problem with serials is sometimes it can take a month between each one... And at only 70 page a book. After I finished each book in the series, I was all like... There's more? Where is it? I will cut a bitch!

“What if I want to stay?”
Her dark eyes meet mine, searching. She clears her throat, taking several seconds to respond. “Then stay.”

GAH! So beautifully written by the lovely Cheryl McIntyre. Who I didn't know much about until this series' cover art drew me in, but now she's on my radar... Watch out woman! She has written a ton of hot looking books, I'm lusting after many covers and I plan on reading as many as I can get my hands on. 

"Stalking Cheryl McIntyre" a DIY Guide:

I can't tell you enough how brilliant this is, a really beautiful but dark story of survival. Tough subjects for some but a strong storyline. FIVE stars without a doubt. You won't regret a moment spent with Link & Rocky ❤️
