ARC Review & Excerpt! Dirty Past by @EmmaHartAuthor @InkSlingerPR

Release Day May 4

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.


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.

Sizzling Hot...That's what Tate Burke is or as I like to say Sex on a Stick.  But he more than just a pretty face.  He's cocky, annoying, and yet very protective of his family or anything he cares about.  He has some trust issues, but his family is number one.   Two things can bring him to his knees...his mom and his niece Mila until he meets Ella.  What is it about her?  His need to protect her is strong, but why? 
Ella Dawson has grown up privileged, she spends her summers in the Hamptons, lives in Manhattan and has a law degree.  But she is running.  Running from an abusive mad man...her fiancé.  With a week before her wedding she's off to start over.  She can't take the abuse anymore and needs to finally live her life.  Find out who Ella is...Escape being a punching bag for the high society Matthew Hamilton, millionaire and heir to Hamilton Enterprises. 
Taking a job as a PA to one of the hottest bands right now Dirty B might not be the best way to hide, but she doesn't care.  Throwing her cell in the river, taking out all her money and running is her only option...will she be able to hide?  Will she feel safe?  Will she finally get freedom? 
Tate is intrigued by Ella.  She's sassy, but then turns into this quiet shy woman.  Everything about her is controlled and it's like she is a robot in a sense.  She's an enigma to him and he wants answers.  He wants under her skin and he wants her under him! But when he confronts her, he sees fear in her eyes.  Why? 
"You're safe with me, darlin'. Always."
Ella is drawn to Tate even though it's like he has multiple personalities.  He can be sweet one minute and an ass the next.  But she feels safe around him.  Tate can't get Ella out of his head.  She's everything...she's strong, beautiful, sassy and she definitely isn't broken.  She's the one that's gonna bring him to his knees and she has no idea.  The sexual tension between them was palpable.  Their attraction was unmistakable even though it might be wrong.  It was panty melting hot at times...wow!  
Sweet fuck, she's everything that's bad and good.  She's temptation and resistance.  Shit, she's sin.  She's dark and light, a contradiction, a mystery to unravel.  She's every fucking thing I didn't know existed.  She's everything I never wanted to know existed.
The banter between them was hilarious at times.  Tate definitely won me over.  He was so cocky and sweet too...I fell for him!  Ella was the perfect character, she fought for herself and I loved that.  Strength, love, freedom and family! 
Mila, I absolutely adored that little girl.  She had these badass rockers wrapped around her little fingers.  It was so adorable.  The boys Connor, Ads and Kye love them.  Sofia what a little hellcat!  
This book was a fabulous read.  It had everything...sweetness, swoon worthy moments, a little suspense, comedy and hella good sex!   I one clicked book one after reading this.  I need Connor and Sofie's story.  Do you need to read book one...no.  Would it help... maybe.  Will you want too after reading this...definitely!   4.75 stars!

“Tate. I don’t…” she draws in a deep breath, and her fingers brush against my forearm.
“You don’t, what, darlin’?” I sink my fingers into her hair.
“Think you should… I should… we should… um,” she pauses, “do this. It’s not right.”
I laugh low, because nothing has ever felt as right as kissing her, and I touch my lips to hers. A sharp squeak buzzes through our connection, and I tug lightly on her bottom lip with my teeth. Fuck, she tastes sweet, like candy and Moscato wine, like summer breaking through a fall day.
She grabs my bare sides and I lean into her more, pushing her back onto the sofa. She goes with me, her grip on me tightening. Our bodies fall flush together, and as I kiss her deeper, swiping my tongue against her bottom lip, she eases her hands around to my back.
Her hands are soft and so fucking warm, each touch is a burning trail across my skin, one I feel tingling everywhere, because, fuck, fuck, fuck.
Too many girls, kisses, touches. None like this.
No softness beneath me, no hot fingertips against me, no deliciously sweet lips against mine.
No Ella.
“Wrong,” she breathes.
“You afraid?” I whisper.
She inhales sharply, but she shakes her head. “No.”
“Then it ain’t wrong, darlin’.” My mouth descends on hers once again, and I sweep my lips across hers. Her body is responding, slightly arching into me, but it’s her mouth, her kiss, that fucking consumes me.
Her tongue meeting and battling mine sends me into another fucking dimension, some ten million light years above ours. Consuming me, fucking with me, she drives me crazy yet again.

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 home town. 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.
