3.5 ish starsThis was just eh..ok to me.It was pretty good and it was an easy read The storyline was different but it was almost to quick, I would ve likecharacter development I guess The dirty nails was icky to me but I guess whatever gets your rocks off right Shay has experienced tragedy at its worst, watching her parents be murdered at the sweet young age of 10 She was rescued and raised by Max, her future companion She lives each day to obey and love struggling to find out who killed her parents and why Then enters Sketch as Max s new right hand man, will he be the one to end her pain or make it worse First and foremost, Regina Bartley blew me away with this book She is an incredible author but this book is on a whole new level and she nailed Shay has experienced tragedy at its worst, watching her parents be murdered at the sweet young age of 10 She was rescued and raised by Max, her future companion She lives each day to obey and love struggling to find out who killed her parents and why Then enters Sketch as Max s new right hand man, will he be the one to end her pain or make it worse First and foremost, Regina Bartley blew me away with this book She is an incredible author but this book is on a whole new level and she nailed it This book starts off dark and heavy, learning about Shays life, past and present That girl has been through some incredible situations Sketch is a hardened man with a dark past These two were my favorites through out the book, page turn by page turn The suspense in this book is incredibly believable and left me with many many ideas as to what was going to happen next, some were wrong and some were right I couldn t put the book down due to the incredible details about Shay s journey, the good, the bad, the ugly I read it in one sitting as I couldn t stop, I had to know what was going to be in store for Shay and Sketch in the future Would Shay ever figure out what happened to her parents or would she be strong enough to handle the details to be able to pick up the pieces and move on This book was so emotionally charged, with emotions ranging from happy to sad to outraged to excitement to downright depressed that by the time I finished, I felt raw the rest of the day Had Regina not written the book with the finality and detail she gave it you would probably still be asking why, why, why Normally, this style of book isn t something I would have read, as I like to keep them upbeat and happy, for the most part Regina has a way of dragging you into her stories line by line, page by page, especially this book with Shays story It makes you forget it might not be a genre you d like This book shows the diversity Regina is able to successfully write What does the future hold for Shay, Max, and Sketch Dive in and find out Advanced Review I feel so lucky to have been able to read Dirty Nails before anyone else If you are familiar with Regina Bartley s work, prepare to be blown away because this is unlike anything she has written before Your jaw may drop, your skin may crawl, but in the end, you will be amazed at what she has done with this story.

by Regina and it was AMAZING Never in a million years did I see the twists and turns of the book coming I wish I could give this bookthan 5 stars because it deserves it The book is told through Shay s POV So when it starts we are introduced to Shay and Max At first I didn t understand why she was there or why she stayed with Max But as the story unfolds we start to understand why Shay stays with Max and why she does the things she does Then enters Switch I knew he was going to play a huge part in this book from the very beginning I was actually amazed at the way he treated Shay and how different she was with him I actually fell in love with Switch when everything started to turn There are way too many good parts in this book to give it away in my review so I am trying not to spoil anything But please please please read this book because it is very good Just when you think you have things figured out, Regina throws you a curve ball Twist, turns, secrets, and lies continue to spill out throughout the entire book There were parts that had my mouth hanging open because I never saw it coming I HIGHLY recommend reading this because you will not be disappointed one bit My Review I d just like to start this review by giving Ms Bartley a standing ovation stands and claps wildly This is the twisted and screwed up story of a young girl who believes herself to be in loveshe believes that everything that Max does is for her protection That he is her home, her safe place If all you have ever known is crueltyhow would you ever know that love could, or indeed SHOULD, be any different Then a new guy, Sketch, turns up working for Maxwell, he has as many demon My Review I d just like to start this review by giving Ms Bartley a standing ovation stands and claps wildly This is the twisted and screwed up story of a young girl who believes herself to be in loveshe believes that everything that Max does is for her protection That he is her home, her safe place If all you have ever known is crueltyhow would you ever know that love could, or indeed SHOULD, be any different Then a new guy, Sketch, turns up working for Maxwell, he has as many demons as Shay and the two have an instant, albeit slightly odd, chemistry Anyone who has read anything by Regina in the past will be in for a shockthis is soooo far past anything that you d expect that you ll be knocked into a whole new world This is raw, exceptionally dark, edgy, gritty and filled with such truly filthy fuckery that even the Dark queen herself Madam Ker Dukey would be proud but the Hershey s Bartley undertone still remains true The plot was flawless and the character development was spectacular watching Shay flit between Shay and returning to Sadie towards the end was deeply heart warning and heart breaking all at once This is an un put downable story of love, lies murder, betrayal and finally finding redemption.VERY well done Ms Bartley I am in Awe5 STARS 10 if Leanne will let me borrow a few Dirty Nails is not your Everyday Romance It s Dark, intriguing, emotional and full of twist and turns.I read this book in two days I was hooked to the story from beginning to end The Book left me

Regina Bartley is One of those Authors whose knows how to write Mindblowing Stories.I want to thank Regina for Creating Sketch I so desperately want that Man to be real He was So Good I Loved the way he Loved, Protected Shay from the Monsters He is without Doubt one of My Best Book Boyfriend.I Recommend Everyone to Please Please Purchase the Book and Read it It s Amazing From the outside looking in, this life may seem jacked up People may think that I ve completely lost my mind They only see the bruises They don t know that Maxwell Costin saved my life, and that I owe him everything I m alive because of him So when he tells me to keep my mouth shut, and do what he says then that s exactly what I do And if anyone asks about the dirty bodies, the dirty floors, or Max s dirty hands, I know nothing Even if the man asking is dark and dangerously sexy I will not break Try me Recommended for agesdue to graphic language, sexual content, mature subject matter This book is not for the weak at heart You have been warned Stand alone This was the first time I read a book by Regina and I absolutely LOVED it Couldn t put it down not like I wanted to anyway The twists towards the end of the story are jaw dropping worthy and all in all, I really loved this book Good work Regina
