Blog Tour Review
Dirty Past
(Burke Brothers #2)

Emma Hart
Release Date: May 4, 2015
 ~ Synopsis ~
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.

~ Excerpt ~
“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.

~ Review ~
These Burke Brothers just keep getting better. Emma Hart knows how to deliver a story that gets you vested in the characters and glued to you kindle to see what’s coming next. 

Ella fled New York looking to flee her high society life and the heartache it brought.  Turning up to being a PA for a boy band was probably the best way to fly under the radar….but for how long.

The growth of Ella’s character throughout the story was fun to watch.  Shy, timid and reserved she learns to speak her mind and take back her life.  No longer willing to be a victim but a strong willed woman, she now gives as good as she gets.

Tate….can you say bad boy? He seems to be the worst of the Burke Brothers.  Always out for the next score, love em’ and leave em’ or have them removed.  Tate took soooo much pleasure in pushing Ella to her limits.  But Tate totally stole my affections with his determination to stake his claim to Ella and show her that there was more to him that the tabolids have reported.

I loved seeing the gentler side of Tate.  He seemed to be the only one who could soothe “Els” scars and make her feel safe.  Once in their safe haven, they discover that there is more to life that they have experienced and are willing to explore a life together as being separated for even a short time makes it hard for either of them to breathe.

I read this book in the course of a few days (unfortunately life sometimes likes to keep me from my books).  The story made me laugh, smile, made by heart hurt and then filled it with love.  Of course you get to catch up with the whole Dirty B clan and that in itself is great!

If you are looking to get caught up in your next read you should definitely one click Dirty Past.  New to the series….grab Dirty Secret and fall in love with Connor and Sophie.

See where it all began………
Dirty Secret 
~ Synopsis ~
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.
