Filthy Gorgeous is a silly romantic comedy told through the eyes of a self-proclaimed, modern day Mr. Darcy.
Alexander S. Slade (A.S.S.) has been known as God by his "Sladies" women. He was one of the richest, eligible bachelors in New York, always making tabloids with different women. He's given an ultimatum by daddy to settle down before turning 30 in a few months. His friends take out an advert looking for Ms. Right as a joke, and then he meets "her" (Ella). At first the book was humorous and reminded me of Tangled, which would have been great if SY was narrating. However, after Slade became "fixed" on getting Ella, he became such a lame, puppy dog. It was hard to finish and admit I fell asleep a few times listening at night. I wished for more of the alpha story rather than puppy dog. Narrator was okay. Regretting my credit.
