The British Are Coming! The British Are Coming!
Now a Wall Street Journal Best Seller
From New York Times best-selling author Ilsa Madden-Mills comes a new standalone romance....
A scarred fighter.
A girl with rules.
One night of unbridled passion.
There are three things you need to know about Elizabeth Bennett: She's smart as a whip, always in control, and lives by a set of carefully crafted rules. She's learned the hard way that people you love the most always hurt you in the end. But then she meets Declan Blay, the new neighbor at her apartment complex. A tattooed British street fighter, he's the campus bad boy she's supposed to avoid, but when he saves her from a frat party gone bad, all her rules about sex and love fly out the window. She gives him one night of unbridled passion, but he longs for more. With only a cardboard-thin wall separating their bedrooms, he dreams of possessing the vulnerable girl next door forever.
One night. Two damaged hearts. The passion of a lifetime.
A modern love story inspired by Pride and Prejudice.

"Everything I love in a Contemporary Romance Book!!"
What a Yummy book! This book has love, strength, drama, violence and sex. The perfect mixture for me. I loved the characters! Elizabeth is a damaged girl with amazing strength but a misguided idea of how to deal with her past. Declan is an underground fighter with a great heart, a protective side and British accent! I love how they deal with their issued and find what they need. The love story is sweet, the sex is hot, the drama not extreme and the ending was perfect. I knew the minute they talked about Pride & Prejudice that I would love this book <3 I very much enjoyed the authors writing style and I know the book would have been great in print but I am so glad I waited for audio, I think the narrators were a perfect fit.
I would definitely recommended this book to Contemporary Romance Readers!
Dirty English is a fantastic falling in love story about two characters who finally learned not to let their past get in the way of their future, and was filled with drama, angst, violence, and romance. The romance between theses two characters was fairly mild compared to some of the more hotter and steamier stories I listen too, but well worth the time invested in listening.
More of a young adult romance with adult themes, these characters survived loss, heartache, and questionable upbringings. Taking place in college scene with frat parties, classes, and drama, two scarred souls find each other. Declan has suffered loss, and is searching for someone to fill the void and fall in love with, while Elizabeth, who was brutally betrayed by her high school boyfriend, is unable to open or allow herself to fall in love again. There's no denying the immediate attraction between these two characters; however, Elizabeth is afraid and constantly pushes Declan away.
Audible has some of the BEST narrators! Here's another example of two very talented narrators, Summer Morton and John Hartley. This duo did an OUTSTANDING job narrating this story!
Definitely recommend Dirty English for any "Romantic at Heart" who loves a HEA for two deserving characters. It's credit worthy but as a KU/Whisersync it was a KNOCKOUT of a deal! I'm looking forward to the next book being released in audio!
We all have our walls and demons to overcome, and I love how they did it.
I went into this audio with just the cover to go on. I immediately one clicked because the hero is British and I love the accent. It was a bit different than I imagined. I liked it, but they spent more time apart than together. I was hoping for more of relationship after they worked everything out but by then it was over. Overall I enjoyed the story but I needed more! Maybe I'm just greedy?!
Female narration- 4 stars
Male narration- 4 stars (Wasn't a fan of his female voice)
"♡ Declan and Elizabeth ♡"
Elizabeth struggles getting over a horrible incident that happened to her. Declan is what she needs to get over her fears. I loved the audio version as much as I did the book! That doesn't happen often! :)
"Holy Hot Englishman!"
Sexy, Scrumptious, Worthwhile!
The hot and steamy parts in Declan's gym, but also the sweet parts like the night they were in the rain.
They both did a great job as Elizabeth and Declan but I loved listening to Shelly, Elizabeth's best friend, she was such a great sassy, southern girl.
When Declan is telling Elizabeth how he truly feels about her and when he knew how he felt. Without giving to much away, it was a very sweet and touching part of the book.
Great book, great audiobook and great narration.. This book will make you mad, then laugh and best of all "SIGH" wishing someone had said something like that to you..It is always a relief when one of your favorite books comes out in audio format and they got the narrators right.
"Pleasantly surprised! Good story!"
I went into this story with mixed reservations. I am an avid Pride and Prejudice fan. Comparing this book to my favorite all time literature is like comparing boxed wine to fine wine. Non-the-less this story is a good one. I would call it more Young Adult than contemporary. Declan and Elizabeth are characters that you can believe in. There are some "minor" characters in the background that also make the book interesting and at times amusing.
This story does address some very vile and real issues (including date rape), but does not detract from the overall story and only makes the heroine believable, admirable and strong as she struggles to put her life back together. The book shows this is a slow process.
The love story between Declan and Elizabeth is swoon worthy.
In the end, this book is credit worthy and most definitely sale worthy.
Narration: Summer Morton's performance is okay ... .not stellar but I found John Harleys female voice performance extremely lacking, which is why I knocked down the rating.
"Worth adding the Audio version, nice listen!"
The narrators made this story most enjoyable for me!
I always love a sexy male accent!
Both narrators gave good performances!
The story over all was enjoyable, as a reader/listen, I am always looking for unique stories. So, I guess if I had to change one thing, I'd make it stand out on it's own more. At times it was a bit predictable, but the narrators kept me listening!
Both of the narrators were good, and brought out the emotions in the male and female leads that made the story more enjoyable to me.
Scenes towards the end of the book moved me, but also felt a bit rushed.
Would have liked to see those scenes draw out a bit more. The characters felt genuine, and that always makes me enjoy the audiobook so much more!
I hit the rewind button a few times to hear this quote from the story
" Big moments happen with the smallest of actions, and sometimes it's not until later that we connect the dots, but in that instant, I knew that somehow,
someway Declean was going to own my heart."
THAT QUOTE IS BEAUTIFUL!
Will be listening to Filthy English when it gets made into an audiobook!
I bought this audiobook for only $1.99 since i'd already gotten the kindle edition!
"Loved it! 💕"
It took me a few minutes to adjust to the accent, but once I did it was all sheepish grins and giddy laughter whenever I was listening. The characters are young in my opinion but I was able to get past that as well and enjoy the story.
I wouldn't mind having a little Dirty English myself! 😍
