Dirty Ugly Toy is a novel that blurs the lines of right and wrong, deals with abuse, contains dubious consent, and adult subject matter. If you are sensitive to violent sexual situations, the book may not be suitable for you. Some parts of this book are not easy to read and are not intended for everyone. However, those that keep an open mind and stick with it will not be disappointed.
This is my first book by the author and it certainly won’t be my last.This author will have your heart racing, and begging for answers as she takes you on this intense ride. If you can handle the dark elements, then this is a story. K Webster will slowly take you and her characters, from the darkness into the light.
From the beginning, she puts me on the very edge, I didn’t only fear the hero, I also feared the path in which he was leading me. But I loved every single minute of it.
“I’m captivated by the dark moon that orbits my world.”
This story clung to me, sometimes like a iron grip around my throat choking me, and then other times whispering so gently in my ear.
This is a dark and twisted story, following two people, Jessica and Braxton.
The story starts out with a man who takes what he wants and then viciously lets it go. At the beginning of the story we are taken to the dregs of UK society: the drug addicted and those who sell their bodies.
Jessica is a street prostitute and drug addict who lives in the U.K. She is poor and her addiction to heroin is the reason she makes herself a prostitute for cash or drugs. Once she was a normal woman, but one day changed everything for her. She’s been a sex slave, she’s been roughly handled, beaten, raped and mentally abused. She escapes her past by losing herself and losing touch with reality through her drug addiction.
One day a very rich man propositions her. Be his for 6 months and she’ll leave with more money than she could ever imagine.
That man was Braxton Kennedy.He is a very wealthy man with a sadistic, aggressive, fetichistic personality. He is a single and very attractive man of dark childhood. He is sexually dominant and his twisted fetish is to find women of low status, break them, and treat them like a worthless toy. He invites them into his house, he provides them with every luxury in return for total submission and rough sex. They both sign a legal 6-month BDSM contract according to which he has to pay them a large amount of money in return for their total submission.
By the end of the contract period, Brax “gets rid of” his toy and is in search for the next one. He is always brutal and he never gets emotionally intimate with them.
I want a new toy. One that I can restore. An ugly thing turned pristine and shiny.
Jessica, in desperate need of her next hit and well beyond caring what this man is capable of doing to her, she doesn’t hesitate. Braxton wants Jessica to be his new ‘toy’ but Jessica isn’t like rest of them. She is fearless, she likes being humiliated, she enjoys pain. She begins to like him and is willing to submit to his urges regardless his cruelty. She’s the perfect masochist for Brax and he begins to care about her in his own twisted way. He becomes very controlling of her life and every move, and makes sure she knows it when he doesn’t approve.
But as time passes, neither get what their expecting. Tides turn and secrets are unveiled and no one is left untouched. He starts seeing something in her that he recognizes all too well.
Bunny reminds me of me. And that changes everything.
And when outside forces threaten to tear them apart, they’re both forced to admit that they’re not playing a game anymore. Maybe they never really were.
Their past played out as another layer in the story. In flashbacks, we get glimpses of Braxton’s childhood and the horrors he witnessed as a young boy, who just wanted the love of his mommy. And wanted some food. And socks. And then there is Jessica’s past. Her past was slowly developed throughout the story. Soon in the story, we find out that she isn’t from UK as Braxton thinks she is, and that she has not lived a life of poverty her whole life. Slowly her past catches up to her. What will be his toy’s fate once he finds out her true origin and when the contract expires?
Throughout the story, I didn’t only hate Braxton, but feared him as well. Almost in the beginning I realized that there was something more to his character, something deeper than the cold heartless man he was portraiying. He’s choosing these toys for a reason. Is it because they won’t be missed? Is it because he can control every aspect of their lives? Is it because they are desperate for love and affection, and therefore easy to manipulate? Or is it because they reminding him so someone he used to know. I loved the complexity that K. Webster brought to Braxton’s character. He was possessive, controlling, sadistic. There were many different layers to his personality. Every reaction he showed was believable.
He spewed a lot of hate towards Jessica and inflicted pain for his pleasure. What he didn’t count on was how she would react or that he will eventually care for his bunny. And that was a game changer. Because he never once cared for someone and now that Jessica enter into his life and turn everything upside down, he started to see a different side of life.
Dirty Ugly Toy was well-written. It was unpredictable and twisted. It was dark and dirty, gritty and it was also nothing like I expected. I was constantly left guessing, wondering, only to be wrong. Braxton will show you that he isn’t really a monster, you thought he was. Because even though Jessica was in the dark like Braxton, she was able to bring light into their lives. The book ended in the way I think it would end. It was a perfect ending to this perfectly twisted story. I recommend this book to all other lovers of dark twisted romance. So read the blurb and get for an unbelievable ride that will leave you wanting more.
