    I think this is the case of its me and not the book going by all the high ratings for this. I just couldn’t connect with the story or the heroine, and found myself on numerous occasions dozing off but kept pushing myself to carry on but sadly I gave up at 80% I just couldn’t carry on. Basically for me the synopsis didn’t live up to my expectations.

The first thing that popped into my head was that phrase...because this book does face something difficult and dangerous. It brings to life all the insecurities and fears we could have in a relationship...It confronts the wonder of whether to be completely honest with your partner about sex and fantasies...How will this reveal impact your relationship, how strong is it...How strong are you...how strong is your partner...If you have read any of Alessandra Torre's earlier works than you may have an inkling of how she may craft a tale of this subject matter. With a deft hand, she introduces us to a young couple from college. He has his crew and she has hers. They end up together on their way to a life all planned out, with career goals, the number of kids they will have...the whole nine yards...Their chemistry is off the charts and both fall hard for each other, true love-for reals...But life doesn't always follow the plans we have made and adjustments must be made. These two are strong though, and each shows the other what is important. Not the superficial things, no the really valuable things in their lives are each other and everything else falls along the wayside. Even after being together for seven years, what they had never left them. There was passion and the truth in their coupling. Every time it was sensual, strong and whatever the moment dictated. They were lucky. They still had it. Yet, recently she was having thoughts. It wasn't like she was going to act on them, they were intrusive. But these fantasies were there and due to a specific occurrence, the timing was there to share those thoughts with him.Alessandra Torre takes us on a journey. It is something to behold.It could be dangerous...There would be no guarantee.What there will be is hot, intense, dirty talking, filthy sex between two people who love each other. There will be teasing and questioning. There will be friends who are part of this tale and important to it. There is humor and fun, no doubt but there is also the idea of what if...So get ready to be stimulated, to be involved and wondering What If and then after you think on that...You can also ponder on What's Next?Because Alessandra Torre is sly, cunning and well versed with this territory and it wouldn't surprise me at all if she is working on something else just as stimulating.~~~~~ Before Reading ~~~~~ I am celebrating Independence in the perfect way...When we all can enjoy and practice...The Freedom to Be Whoever We WantWith Whomever We Want...Starting this and cannot wait for the Fireworks to begin, hahahahahaha ❤️❤️❤️ ❤️❤️❤️ ❤️❤️❤️ ❤️❤️❤️ ❤️❤️❤️ ❤️❤️❤️ ❤️❤️❤️ ❤️❤️❤️ June 22, 2019Less than a Month Away...Just a Few Weeks to Ponder...Torrid Thoughts...Twisted Fantasies...What Have You Dreamt Of...But Never Dared Asked or Voiced...They Say Be Careful What You Wish For...Because This Time She Did Ask...And Her Husband Gave Her Every Torrid, Twisted...Filthy Vows...●•●•●•●•●•●•●•May 18, 2019Saw this go up and thought...What does Ms. Torre have in mind for this couple...Could it be the idea to Spice things up which opens the door...Was She getting Restlessor He wanted to see how far to push...When Alessandra Torre decides to write about couples and sex...You know one thing for certain...It Will Be Hot.Now that she has piqued my curiosity...I will be thinking continually about what are those...

Easton places his wife at the centre of his universe empowering her to be honest with him about her sexual desires and fantasies. The story in itself is pretty straight forward, light, easy going, sensual and very, very sexy which I believe is exactly what the synopsis suggests. The usual push and pull of whether a couple will get together is clearly not a factor in the story as they are already married and secure in their relationship. The risk taking is all about how far the couple will go in terms of bringing their sexual fantasies to reality and how that in turn may affect the foundation of their relationship, that is the push and pull of this story, the will they won't they take it all the way there? I felt invested in the characters, including the supporting cast of best friends, and was engaged in the narrative. I confess I would have liked to experience more layers and depth. Perhaps I would have benefited from the story going back in time to the early days of this couple's relationship, when they met at school, a time when Easton and Elle were young and with other partners, a time when Easton had a sports career all mapped out. However, as I said earlier, it appears this was not the intention of this story so perhaps it’s perfectly set in the time period of their established married life. It certainly makes the story feel fresh, unique and unexpected.'Filthy Vows,' is written as a standalone but I'm so pleased a follow up has been announced as it is at the end where the story really took flight for me, and I would have loved more of this couple! I felt the possibilities of their story and would love a front row seat to their future escapades together and whatever conflicts that may arise as a result.

Easton a popular cocky male slut enamored with the beautiful good girl. Somehow compatible in so many ways....Fast forward seven years, and these two are happily married with an active sex life. Unfortunately Elle is struggling with disappointment in her life which has the potential to take its toll on their marriage.“In seven years, how had I changed so much? When had I taken on so much stress? So much insecurity? I thought that I would become more secure as I grew older, but I felt as if I was untethered. Careerless. Childless. Useless. I felt, at rare and isolated moments, that I had made a mistake, in everything.”Whether it’s the feeling of being stagnant or inadequate, Elle is finding herself constantly fantasizing about other men although she has no desire to cheat on her husband. When a moment of role playing with Easton exposes her hidden desires, will her fantasies become a reality?Subject Line: “Your fantasies… I’m having trouble concentrating on anything but the things you described."”They were just fantasies. We can forget they exist."My phone hummed, warm against my upper thigh. A response from Easton.”Yeah, we could. Or we could explore them further."Filthy Vows was an extremely sexy tale of a happily married couple exploring their interest in kink on a broader scale. I actually enjoyed this well written story and Easton is the kind of husband any woman would wish for. Utterly devoted to his wife, there is nothing he wouldn’t do or provide to keep her happy. My only criticism is that this story ends on a sudden cliffhanger. That’s not to say I’m not looking forward to the continuation of their new journey ......It would be an absolute honor to have you as a guest on my blog.

Almost like a mini case study on marriage.The structure of the book is something I haven’t encountered in romance. It’s different and while it may not be for everyone, I enjoyed it. The characters were fablulous. SEXY!! While the book is a bit of a study on the inner workings of marriage, this author did not skimp on the sex appeal. It’s hawt! The secondary characters are fun! I really hope there are more books in the series. I’m looking forward to learning so much more about all these characters!Overall, a compelling and sexy book!!

    Holy moly, this was hotttttttt! Like, seriously, smoking, deliciously sexy, scalding hot. I think what made it so sinfully sexy was the build... the simmering build of these feelings, this fantasy, the reluctant war between lust and desire and shame and fear. It was just so good, so well done, so freaking HOT.I loved these characters. I loved how relatable they felt, how insecure at times they felt, how devoted they were.

I loved their banter, their trust, their love. And I loved their story... from college flirtation to what they evolve into over the course of time, their ups and downs, their losses and their victories. I just couldn't get enough of Easton and Elle and I devoured this book in one sitting. I'm not usually one to reach out to an author after I finish a book but immediately upon closing the last page, I emailed Alessandra Torre with a huge WTF? inquiry. Could there be more to Elle and Easton's story? Does she plan on giving us more in the world she's created here? What comes next in their marriage? What comes next for Aaron and Chelsea? Will there be some kind of marital conflict in the fallout of what transpires here in Filthy Vows? This was perfect as is, don't get me wrong. It's sinfully erotic, emotionally satisfying, a complete package that I literally ate for lunch. It's super sexy, rife with humor and sexual tension, adorably layered with sharp dialogue and drama... but there's also SO MUCH potential here for more. I need more. I loved it and I desperately want more. Definitely READ THIS!

Both of them were likable and relatable. They had great sexual chemistry and the sex scenes were hot, but I was expecting more filth considering the subject matter. It couldn’t happen. It was too close to real life. It was a fantasy that should have stayed in its place, behind the current of impossibility but there—in the City of Sin—I felt it bloom to life. What I loved the most about this book is it wasn’t just about a married couple wanting to try some kinky fuckery just for the sake of it. It started with them young and ready to face the world and followed their journey that led to their carefully made decision. I liked the open-ended conclusion, however, there were several things that were just left hanging especially when it involved a certain matter that was heavily focused on the storyline. “I can’t give you anything. But I can give you this.” Filthy Vows is a story of exploring fantasies. It would appeal to readers who enjoy erotic romance with a taste of kink.For more reviews/reveals/giveaways visit:

So while I was very conflicted, it came to light that the author decided that she had more to write for this couple and that there would be a second book. So while I’m super happy to be getting more, my review feels jaded somehow.I will say that this author writes magnificently and this story was really fascinating. It wasn’t drama fueled, it was humorous, it had a great cast of secondary best friend characters, and it had a couple that really really loved each other and have a great and satisfying sex life. The way this author presented this couple and their relationship felt very real and organic. They met in college, fell in love, got married, had dreams and then realities that changed their course in life. But through it all, their intense love for one another kept them together. The catch in their marriage was that the heroine started to have erotic fantasies. They discussed these fantasies because of their solid marriage. The idea of fantasies in the mind can be exciting and taboo but the act of fulfilling them can be tricky and there can be consequences that arise. Sometimes even the best of marriages need something extra. The only twists in this story is the fantasies and because this author writes exquisitely, it is 🔥🔥🔥. I’m looking forward to the next book, Twisted Marriage. Will Easton and Elle survive their fantasy fulfilled or will it lead them to a new sexual chapter in their life? How will Aaron and Chelsea, the best friends, fit into their filthy puzzle? I’m quite sure that this author will continue to knock my socks off with these characters, their sex life, their fantasies and possible consequences.*advanced copy provided by author in exchange for an honest review*

    2 3/4 "Pandora's Box" Stars!This was ok. It was erotic and taboo for sure, but the writing was also a little off, for me. Kind of choppy and just off. There were a lot of (non sexual) questions left unanswered. More storylines that needed follow ups. I just found out there will be more books about Easton and Elle. I liked them both, especially as the story progressed. Though I think they have ruined their marriage, I do appreciate how they were open and honest; able to communicate well.

They are fun, cute, and crazy in love but they also have some insecurities. I like that this book is not all about sex. There is a nice storyline about relationship, married life, and friendship. This book is a lot of fun, sexy, fast paced, entertaining read.

In fact, her friend was the one who actually "open her sights" to the then "manwhore" with the "beautiful dick". And then, the two met and fast forward a couple of years, they are married. And they fit each other, emotionally and sexually, since it turns out that our heorine is open minded and likes her sex a little bit dirty.And well, just the saying simply tossed out there: how manwhores don't marry their equal female counterparts, but rather choose the "good girl"gah...anyway, the "friendship" of two women who were sexually connected to the same men (not talking about threesomes), in the long houl, never quite work for me...it's just fucking weird!And then the whole thing of "doing", "making" the wife's sexual fantasies true with the husband's long time best friend, who is going through a divorce and is in fact, "right there", in handyuf, I do know, I mean, I love threesomes,(to read about them, duh) in fact, they are so freaking hawt, I simply forget about anything else LOL, but I think actually the whole thing might work better if the couple is doing it with a stranger, and not a person that they KNOW closely and is a part of their daily lives...I mean, also fucking awkward...and weird...but hey, that's just my opinion on the matter...I guess, being the matter of personal opinion and taste BUT simply put, for me, that is a bit distasteful...*shrugs* The whole psychological process of lamenting and inner turmoil within the heroine the most, was well written and it actually made me think that there was more to the story BUT in the end all I got was her insatiable kinky fantasy coming true and then she figures now that she had finally had a taste of it, she just wanted more... The issue was, I wanted more. A lot more. And in that dark tent, in the sound of my husband's deepening sighs, I felt my sexual wings unfurl and take flight. what does it mean for the story? I really don't know.I get the feeling like it leads to a sequel that in my opinion wouldn't make any sense to make in the first place...I just feel like I was abruptly taken from one state of mind to another without giving me a proper land to step on...I mean, where do we go from here? Well, i know where I'm going BUT I'm not so sure with this story or what it had to say in the end...*sigh* I'm gonna leave the rating open and decide on it, closer to the release date...cause honestly, I don't really know where to put this story...hmmmyeah, I finally decided on the rating...*sigh*

This story takes us on a little journey, first on how Elle and Easton met in college, their slow seduction which was definitely foreplay because you knew these two were bound to be together but with their banter it only made things hotter when they ran into one another on campus, then through the early years of their marriage along with the struggles of fallen careers and other obstacles life has thrown in their way, and finally when they are together facing a realization that neither ever saw coming. Elle has sexual fantasies and she is about to share them with her husband.I absolutely LOVED this story, the struggles were real and I could feel the pain that Elle was dealing with as if they were my own. This story left me wanting MORE, MORE, MORE of Elle and Easton and I really hope Alessandra Torre graces us with another book about them because I honestly couldn't get enough of them.This book is perfect for anyone (over 17) that enjoys erotic romance that has an established couple as the H and h, and enjoy some very HOT sexual and as well sensual sex scenes. Happy Reading!!! **I have voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book for my Blog, Nadine's Obsessed with Books** You can see this and other Reviews I have written along with various cover reveals, excerpts, and giveaways here Nadine's Obsessed with Books

    Throughout her books, Alessandra Torre makes you reconsider how you think about sex. She never judges her characters’ choices, whether it’s their love of threesomes or group sex or having an intimate relationship with two different people at the same time. She shows you these desires and wants and makes you ask yourself what you would do if you were in her characters’ shoes.Filthy Vows is Torre’s hottest book yet, and I think it’s because her focus is on a married couple. Elle and Easton, as Tor Throughout her books, Alessandra Torre makes you reconsider how you think about sex. She never judges her characters’ choices, whether it’s their love of threesomes or group sex or having an intimate relationship with two different people at the same time. She shows you these desires and wants and makes you ask yourself what you would do if you were in her characters’ shoes.Filthy Vows is Torre’s hottest book yet, and I think it’s because her focus is on a married couple. Elle and Easton, as Torre shows, are true soulmates. These two love each other. They are in this marriage together. There is no outside threat, no danger posed to their union.Instead, the tension and conflict come from Elle’s desires. She has particular fantasies, but she worries about sharing them with Easton. What will he say when he knows what she wants?As Torre builds to the moment of disclosure, she also establishes Elle and Easton’s marriage as well as their characters. Elle tells this story, and seeing her relationship through her eyes fascinates you because she is such a complex character. She has had her share of disappointments, and there are things she wants but does not have. Neither she nor Easton have the jobs they thought they would have, and the instability of their professions (they both have commission-based salaries) is an interesting choice from Torre because it adds a note of professional insecurity while further solidifying Easton and Elle as a unified force.And yet you understand why Elle is reluctant to share her darkest desires with her husband. You will hold your breath as you read this book, wondering what will happen when Elle discloses those desires. So when Easton not only agrees to fulfill them but becomes as aroused as she is, you will practically combust.Alessandra Torre fans know that she writes exemplary sexy times, but Filthy Vows, dear readers, will leave you a throbbing mass of NEED. You will squeeze your thighs together so tightly that you will cut off circulation. Torre has the perfect amount of detail, the perfect pacing, the perfect EVERYTHING. Hot, steamy, passionate, and smoldering incandescence. My only complaint? I wanted more. MORE MORE MORE. In fact, I want more Easton and Elle. The book doesn’t end on a traditional cliffhanger, but there definitely is a sort of openness that lends itself to more books.You will need more Easton and Elle.Hit up the comments and let me know what you think of them.

    HOLY HOTNESS!! I love an erotic romance and I love books about married couples so this book was perfect for me! Although the heat factor is high, the story is not as taboo as the synopsis makes it sound. "I closed my eyes and tried to understand what all of this meant for us.Could we go back to a normal life? Could I be a normal wife? Could we have a normal marriage?" Elle and Easton have been together for years, having met in college when he was a star baseball player.

Although the heat factor is high, the story is not as taboo as the synopsis makes it sound. "I closed my eyes and tried to understand what all of this meant for us.Could we go back to a normal life? Could I be a normal wife? Could we have a normal marriage?" Elle and Easton have been together for years, having met in college when he was a star baseball player. Real life intervened and their marriage is not what they imagined all those years ago. They are completely committed to each other but Elle is craving something more. Should she tell her husband about her wild fantasies? Would Easton ever agree to what Elle has in mind? The sexual tension builds in this book to an absolutely sinful conclusion with lots of teasing and even humor along the way. I have always loved the author's writing style - crisp, fast-paced and sharp. The sexual banter in this book is fantastic and the characters are all very relatable. If you love stories about married couples then you will love this book. But be warned: the steam factor is off the charts! The conclusion definitely left me wanting lots more about Elle, Easton and especially his best friend Aaron. And I am happy to say that the author plans on writing another book called 'Twisted Marriage' in October! I read 'Filthy Vows' in one sitting. It is an incredibly erotic and sexy story!

The addition of Chelsea is genius! And Aaron. Can I have him please?

    This book was very hot but I didn’t connect with Elle and her reasons for those fantasies. I just kind of felt sorry for Easton because he would do anything to keep her happy. And I do mean anything.

Married for four year Review is also here: http://iloveromanticfiction.com/2019/...Main characters: Elle North, young wife to Easton, unsure of where she is headed. Easton North, former sporting hopeful, now struggling to find his way.Plot: Elle and Easton have been together since college although it certainly wasn't love at first sight for Elle. She wasn't interested in the campus player, but somehow he managed to show her who he really was underneath the swagger and his promiscuous reputation. Married for four years, their relationship is the only constant in Elle's life. Her touchstone - the one thing she's sure of.Elle is coming to realise that despite their explosive and sexually fulfilling life together, she has thoughts and fantasies that will not disappear. She's tried ignoring them, but they refuse to be buried. Her relationship with her husband has always been honest and so telling Easton about her fantasies seems natural. Nothing can prepare her for his reaction - will telling him bring them closer together, or be the catalyst that blows their relationship apart?Why you should read it: I was excited to read this book, as the premise really intrigued me. I'm always drawn to stories about what happens after the 'I do.' Elle and Easton are a very young married couple and they both still have a lot of growing up to do. They're dealing with professional disappointments but are trying to navigate their way through life as best they can. Their love for each other is clear and it dances off the pages. The sexual chemistry is palpable - the book is very upfront - it deals with very vivid fantasies and you'll either love it or hate it. The scenes were extremely tantalising and well written. Have a fan handy!What you may not like: Ok - I have a couple of issues with the book. First, the following dialogue:“Have you ever been with a black guy?” Chelsea popped the question at normal volume, then stuffed a piece of bread in her mouth. Bread that most certainly contained gluten, despite the interrogation she just put the menu through. I eyed the bread and considered my own avoidance of carbs, one that was on a twelve-day streak. “Uh—no.” “They’re gooood,” she mused through a mouthful of bread, the word stretched out and savored, her head turning to watch as our waiter eased by and to an adjacent table, a pitcher of ice water in hand. “Very athletic.”This paragraph came out of nowhere. There I was, trying to get into the story and this scene totally blindsided me - it's spoken by a peripheral character and that particular comment isn't called out by the main character in any way, which made me REALLY dislike both characters. It didn't advance the storyline or lead to anything more significant, so I wondered why it was there at all. I don't enjoy dialogue that treats any group of society as a monolith or somehow fetishises said group. This one paragraph made me question whether I cared about the characters at all, which is a shame. At times I found them shallow, self involved and vacuous. Perhaps this is how rich and privileged people talk to one another - I'm sure it is, but it doesn't make me want to invest in them or care about them.Rating: 3/5 for the more risqué nature of the book - that's what I love about the author and her willingness to go all out and write a no-holds barred story. 2/5 for the rest of the story. The throwaway comment by a minor character unfortunately spoilt my enjoyment of most of this story. Words and dialogue matter (especially in this current climate) as they reveal an awful lot about who we are. This one just didn't work for me I'm afraid.

This story was a truly erotic escape for any romance reader.I was sucked into this story right from the start and it kept me gripped all the way until the end. This story was different from anything I have read before. It had me so enthralled I finished this book in just a couple of hours. I couldn’t put it down!!!What I loved the most about this book was that it was about a married couple with no drama, but something that I believe most couples face in their marriage. I loved the realism of the story. I felt that the thoughts and feelings that both Easton and Elle had felt very real. I also think this book will make other married couples think about how they would handle this situation. I don’t think I could do what they did.My only complaint about this book is that I felt the ending was kind of abrupt. I felt like there was more to Elle and Easton’s story and that it just stopped. It left me wondering about them and where they will go in the future. Now maybe that is Alessandra’s plan and we will get to see more of them in the future….who knows?!?!?! But even with the faster ending, this book it totally worth the read!!!I’ll just finish this review with this, if you haven’t read anything by Alessandra Torre, I suggest you fix that and pick up one of her books!!! If you have read her books before then you already know that you are in for a real treat when you pick up one of her books!!

Also very much in love with their names. Their chemistry was just out of this world. The writing was impeccable- I felt like I could visually see this book playing out. If it was a movie, I would definitely watch it :) I had zero expectations of how this book was going to play out. I thought some cheating was going to occur, but had no expectations otherwise. Torre threw me a damn curve ball. This book felt so forbidden, but I was so drawn to every last word! I would read and read and read and then put my iPad down like it was almost too much to handle. Then I would repeat the same cycle. I also loved getting into Elle’s mind. I just loved her perspective on her life and her sexuality. I was on the edge of my seat from start to finish. I mean DAMN. It gets five stars, but I do have one major problem... I was way too short! I mean, I am PISSED! I needed an epilogue. I’m glad they’re getting another book because I have sooooo many unanswered questions.

This couple communicates and it’s so refreshing and hilarious to see them in their element, bickering and goofing off with each other.The dialogue is fantastic!! I was literally laughing out loud at these two and the stuff that comes out of their mouths.Chelsea and Aaron are their best friends and these two also brought so much to the story. Chelsea is wild and funny as can be. She’s promiscuous and forward which made her the perfect side kick to Elle’s more refined and classic ways. Aaron is reserved but gorgeous and freshly divorced. Now he’s staying with Elle and Easton and things are about to change. Elle can’t help the dirty thoughts she keeps having about her husbands best friend, especially when she catches him watching her and Easton in their most intimate act. But not to worry because it appears Easton is just as interested in his wife’s hot fantasies which is why he decides it’s his job to make them come true.But what happens after? Will there be consequences to pay?One thing is for sure, Easton and Elle are about to find out!!This book was ADDICTIVE!! I finished this quicker than any book I’ve ever read before. I was sucked in from the very first page and so enamored with Easton and Elle’s relationship and the easiness in which they understood each other. This story shows how one couples love can face any obstacle and come out stronger in the end. I loved this couple and was completely in lust with Easton and his alpha male ways. He was delicious with his dirty talk and had my heart racing with his need to please his wife. He knew he was sexy but wanted the affirmation just as much as Elle needed to know she was desired. And boy was she more than desired. A beautiful woman who was in touch with her body and let pleasure satisfy her mind. She had the naughtiest thoughts about men that were forbidden and suddenly I found that I could totally relate. That might sound horrible but Elle seriously made me feel like I understood her intentions. She didn’t need to have her fantasies fulfilled. She could live her life just as she’d been doing, going about her business. Her fantasies made her human and her love for her husband never wavered.Definitely one that left a mark!!This book was reviewed for Reviews from the Heart.~ ShannonFollow the blog: Instagram: http://bit.ly/RftHInstagramBlog: http://bit.ly/RftHBlog Facebook: http://bit.ly/RftHFacebook Twitter: http://bit.ly/RftHTwitter

    Holy mother of everything naughty… I finished reading Filthy Vows a couple days ago and I’m still drooling and panting just from thinking about it. Alessandra Torre created incredibly sexy and steamy story about married couple and their life together. In some moments I felt sad for them, while in other I was really close to feel envy. Because despite the passage of time Elle and Easton are still very much in love and attracted to each other.Real love means that there’s nothing you wouldn’t do fo Holy mother of everything naughty… I finished reading Filthy Vows a couple days ago and I’m still drooling and panting just from thinking about it. Alessandra Torre created incredibly sexy and steamy story about married couple and their life together. In some moments I felt sad for them, while in other I was really close to feel envy. Because despite the passage of time Elle and Easton are still very much in love and attracted to each other.Real love means that there’s nothing you wouldn’t do for your significant other. Unfortunately there are situations in life you can’t control, which results in broken promises and feelings of non-fulfilment. There are also thoughts that you’re not enough for your partner if you can’t give him what he wants or needs. But what if you could fulfill your beloved’s desires instead? That’s exactly what happened to Elle and Easton. Life threw at them some mean curveballs and their life doesn’t look like they have planned. But what they have in spades is love, passion and extreme sex drive. But when Elle is getting these uncontrolled fantasies, she’s a little scared to share them with her husband, because what it would mean for their marriage?Filthy Vows might be the hottest book I’ve ever read! Alessandra’s writing made the scenes so real, that I felt like a voyeur watching a couple in their most intimate moments. It was dirty, but also sensual and arousing. And the love… Good heavens, the love between Easton and Elle is so deep and honest! It’s like the fate rewarded these two with the power of this feeling for all the disappointments in their life. As a reader, I felt the sizzling chemistry between main characters from the moment they met, up to the very end when they were together for years. And can I mention how much I love sexy, cocky, filthy Easton, who’ll do anything for his wife? I WANT HIM!Great storyline. Flawless writing. Brilliant characters. Filthy Vows is a delicious manifest about something we sweep under the rug in fear of being judged. It might be controversial to some, but what Alessandra created left me in belief that the world needs more couples like Elle and Easton- couples that are honest to each other, even if that honesty is risky. The ending of this book caught me a little off guard, but I hope that means that we’ll get more. Maybe secondary characters stories? That would be amazing, because I loved both Aaron and Chelsea !*ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
