Tour Review & Giveaway! Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren

Paperback, 416 pages
Published May 13th 2014 by Gallery Books

One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him.

But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to France for the summer and just…play.

When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away.


Well… I LOVED IT!!! I loved it so, so much! 

I’ve missed reading a story like this: sweet, fun and careless at the beginning, but transforming into something deeper as the pages turn. Not into something too deep, though. The angst is there, but very well concealed by the other, lighter parts of the plot. This was a big plus for me. 

I don’t want to give up anything more about the plot, because this book has a very spoilerific start and it’s highly probable to slip in some tiny detail that will clue you in. You must read it for yourself to figure out how fun it is. 

I could barely see any filth in this boy *laughing knowingly to myself* he’s nothing but sweetness! And he will melt your heart with the way he acts. 

Although I found her a little bit too insecure, hesitating on things that are way past the stage of insecurity, I also liked Mia. I must admit she had a lot of courage to act on what she felt. I loved her and Ansel together! They are sweet, delicate (in a way of speaking), perfect! 

The supporting characters, mostly the girls, were fresh and fun, spicing up the already spicy story. It would have been great to find out more about the boys and see them interact some more. There’s a large part of the book from which they’re missing, but I’m sure we’ll get know them better in the next books! 

The writing style was enjoyable. I’ve read Beautiful Bastard and like it a lot, but might I say that not as much as this one? There, I’ve said it. Must be the Paris feeling. 

All in all, Sweet Filthy Boy is a great start of a new series and I can’t wait to read the next installment. 

Happy reading!

Christina Hobbs (but you’ll always hear Lo call her PQ) used to spend her days in a junior high counseling office surrounded by teenagers. Married to the cutest boy in school, she has a thirteen year old daughter, is an unapologetic lover of boy bands and glitter, and also likes to steal Lo’s shoes.
