Blog Tour and Review: Dirty Past by Emma Hart



On the heels of Dirty Secret, here is a sizzling hot romance featuring another Burke brother and the girl he can’t resist, from the New York Times bestselling author of the Game series.

Walking out on my wedding wasn’t my best idea.

Neither was throwing my cell in the lake and taking a job as PA for Dirty B, America’s favorite rock band, complete with every teen girl’s dream man, the eldest of the Burke brothers.

Tate Burke is pure sex. Women actually throw their panties at him during shows. And Ella Dawson is the lucky little thing that gets to escort their fangirling butts out when he’s done with them.

Yay.

He’s a cocky son of a bitch, but there’s more to him than meets the eye. Every now and then Ella gets a rare glimpse of the Tate behind the “bad boy” act, and it attracts her in the most annoying way. The most annoying, heart-thumping, panty-wetting way.

When her abusive ex turns up at the hotel room Ella and Tate are sharing, raging mad, she knows she’ll need more than just a little protection. Tate sees red, and Ella can’t help but lean on him, despite his bad-boy ways.

And now? Now, he’s in a whole lot of trouble.

Excerpt


My bell rings, finally, after many protestations from Barbie. I open the door to Ella, looking tired yet fresh, and Carlos. I meet his eyes. “Get her out.” I nod toward Blondie.

“Tate? What?” 

I stare at Ella as the blonde chick is removed. Clingy bitches. Rolling my shoulders, I rest my hands either side of the doorframe, and ask Ella, “How’d you find tonight?” 

She steps back. “It was awesome until you called me to clean up your mess.” 

“It’s in your contract, darlin’.

” Her eyes spark with annoyance. “Actually, it says nothing about removing your entertainment.” 

I lean forward. “Then I’ll make a note to amend it in the mornin’. And, for what it’s worth, that wasn’t cleaning up my mess. If I wanted you to do that I woulda called you five minutes earlier and had you in the fuckin’ shower with me, Els.” My eyes ghost down her body, lingering at her full breasts and toned thighs. 

Thinking of her in the shower, naked and wet, is doing fuck all for the erection I can’t get rid of. In fact, it’s downright painful right now. 

She stares at me stonily, that annoyed spark flaring into full-fledged anger. “Believe me, Mr. Burke, if the impossible happens and you somehow get me in a shower with you, I’d probably drown you, not clean you.” 

“Tate. My name is Tate.” 

“And mine is Ella.”


My Review -- 4 Stars


I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Dirty Secret.  I was hoping that Emma would be able to deliver the same thrill and engaging read.  She sure did with this one!

Secrets and pasts always seem to catch up with us, at a time where we are most vulnerable.  This story is about Ella and her need to find herself while hiding from her abusive fiance'.  Her mistrust and uncertainty is something that intrigues everyone.

Tate is the playboy.  He will never settle.  He is the hit it and quit it man.  Until Emma crosses his path.  Her shyness, yet spunky attitude has him panting at her feet.

This story had me from the beginning.  The slow turn in confidence with Ella to the slow demise of Tate.  Then throw in the stalking ex, who just won't let Ella go.  It's a guaranteed winner.  I read this one in one sitting.  How could I not?  I didn't want to put it down.  I needed to see this to the end.


Conner Burke never expected Sofie Callahan to come back.

Where she’s been for the last two and half years is a mystery, and so is the reason she left in the first place. Now, though, she’s back in their hometown of Shelton Bay, South Carolina, at the same time Conner’s band Dirty B. is home on a tour break.

Sofie Callahan has spent the months since her father’s death avoiding anything to do with her hometown. But with her brother in Afghanistan, she has no choice but to return and sort out her father’s house, even if it means facing the boy she fell in love with and revealing the reason she left.

Conner has questions, and when his broken heart and her guilty one collide, Sofie has to start answering them. Their present is rocky, their future unknown. Only one thing is certain: Sofie’s daughter will change everything.
