Filthy is a short novella and is part of the Fierce Series. It can be read as a standalone; however, I feel it’s best to read the others first to get a better understanding.
This novella tells the story of Jaret. He loves women; they hang round him night after night at the local club, and he always gets what he wants. Jaret is a dealer, gang member and pretty much doesn’t give a damn about anyone or anything. Cut off from his parents when he didn’t do as they wanted, he’s alone, broken and gets by on women and booze. By chance, he runs into Lin at a strip club. They were each other’s first love but things ended when Lin was sent to finishing school. Lin’s working in the club to pay off a loan. Jaret cannot believe it when he sees Lin again! The only girl he’s ever loved has made him more determined than ever not to let her go! He finds out where she’s living and who with. Her current partner is a fighter, abusive towards her, and even though she wants to leave him, she has no choice but to stay as he paid off her student loans. She agrees to let Jaret help her, so he sets out to try and free her of this man and win her for himself. Fate has handed him a second chance and he’s unwavering in his decision to take it. When Bobby, the man Lin lives with finds out about the two of them, threats are made and he challenges Jaret to match… will he accept? Will Jaret be able to protect Lin and will they ever be able to have a life together?
It’s wonderful to see the character of Jaret finally mature and put Lin’s happiness above all else. There are twists and turns, emotion and sweetness. This story is hot and sexy which you’d expect with a book by Clarissa!
