Review and Giveaway: The Dirty Ones by J.A. Huss


☆☆➹⁀☆ 5 stars ☆➹⁀☆☆


What It’s About:

They said write what you know so that’s what I did. I wrote dirty, I wrote erotic, I wrote the truth.
And then they called me a liar. But it’s not me who’s lying, it’s them.
Our story isn’t for everyone. It’s not even for us.
So if you’re looking for the fairy tale and the stupid prince on his dumb white horse, move along. You’ve got a hold of the wrong book.
This is not your story, this is not your life, and this is not your opportunity to dip your frightened little toe into the dark pool of water and “try new things” and then pull it out and decide… #NotForMe.
When you go in with us you go all in. So make a decision before you turn this page.
Because I’m making one promise with this book.
Just one.
We are The Dirty Ones and this is our truth.

The Dirty Ones is a brand new dark romance about the secret world of erotica authors.

My Thoughts:

The queen of conspiracy strikes again! Her latest novel, The Dirty Ones, is a wild psychological thriller that brought to mind other mind imploding books/movies like Shutter Island and Inception. J.A. Huss’ The Dirty Ones is so suspenseful that I couldn’t put it down. I can’t help but try to guess the antagonist and outcome while reading, and all my hypotheses were seriously wrong! Ms. Huss kept me guessing until the very end, and that folks, is entertainment.

Ten years after the group of eight college students are embroiled in what seems like a secret society initiation their senior year, a book is published claiming to be the truth of their experience. Their fear of the repercussions is palpable as they regroup and work through who anonymously published the book and why.

There were times my heart was literally racing with the building tension in the story. The eerie rural college setting, the foreboding tower, and the limited narration points of view all contributed to the incredible suspense in The Dirty Ones. This book is so dark and twisted that you’ll want a reading buddy to hold your hand and see you safely to the end of the tale.
