REVIEW BLITZ: Dirty Little Secret (Forbidden Desires #1) by Kendall Ryan

The start to a sexy new series from New York Times bestselling author, Kendall Ryan...

She’s much too innocent for me, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting the sweet, young librarian. I’m dominating and possessive, and my control streak runs a mile wide. 

The way she looks at me—like I’m one of the heroes in the books she loves, like I’m broken, and she wants to be the one to piece me back together—it only complicates things further. I’m nobody’s hero.

But there’s no denying my tragic past reads like one of her favorite literary classics. It’s raw. Visceral. Captivating. And together, we’re a perfect mess.

How am I expected to resist when the sexual sparks zap between us and set me on fire? The need to control, and claim her force my walls to come tumbling down, but when she learns my dirty little secret, will my world come crashing down with it?

The story continues in Dirty Little Promise, releasing October 30th.


My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.

I live in NYC and when it comes to my morning commute, I'm a creature of habit. I take the same route. I often see the same people. So when Emma sees the same gorgeous man in a coffee shop almost every day, for a year, I totally get why she would be curious about him. Then one day he drops his business card in the tip jar and Emma jumps at her chance to find out more about him.

Turns out Gavin Kingsley is quite the guy. He and his two brothers run a high end escort service and they are VERY successful. Emma's curiosity gets the best of her and she makes an appointment to be seen at his office. Not because she wants to be an escort, but because she just has to see him. But her trip to his office turns out to be a lot more interesting than she originally thought. She meets with both Gavin and his brother Cooper and before she knows it, an agreement is made. Emma will work for them, but exclusively with them. She will accompany Gavin and his brother to events when needed. No strings attached. Sounds good right? What could go wrong?

That's where things really got interesting. Cooper was extremely laid back and had a knack for immediately putting Emma at ease. While Gavin was a very intense and it her took a little bit to feel comfortable, especially at first. And to make things a little more complicated, it's clear that both men are attracted to Emma. Deep down Cooper knows that Emma and Gavin want each other, but that doesn't stop him from showing her what kind of man he is. But once Emma and Gavin spend some time together and go on a few dates, it's clear that these two are on the road to a relationship. It's a hot and steamy one with a little sweet thrown in and I really enjoyed it. But the road to happily ever after is a bumpy one and we are left with a bit of a cliffhanger that puts everything in jeopardy.

I know this book was about Gavin and Emma, but I really loved Cooper. He becomes a good friend to Emma and the person she can lean on when things get tough. And he also had no problem giving his brother a little kick in the ass to make him see things clearly. At times he may even crossed the line just a teeny tiny bit, but he definitely knew what he was doing. 

I cannot wait for the next one. I need to know how everything plays out!
