Secrets will be exposed, sides will be chosen, and nothing will ever be the same.
This is book two in the series, following Dirty Little Secret.
I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.
We were left with a decent sized cliffhanger at the end of Dirty Little Secret. I knew that there was more to the story and I couldn't wait to find out what it was. Gavin finds himself in a situation that he's never been in before and he's not quite sure what to do. Luckily that was resolved kind of quickly, although there are some related residual issues that come up and threaten Emma and Gavin's happiness.
Emma and Gavin's story is one of love, heartache and learning to follow your heart. Emma really impressed me in this book. She had to really thinking about what she wanted and make a choice that decided what path to happiness she took. One path seemed like the easy route while the other, while not necessarily terrible, was the rougher one. But when it's true love, it's true love.
The next book in this series is about Cooper and I cannot wait! Kendall was able to do that thing where as much as I loved Gavin and Emma, I was more drawn to Cooper and his story. He's the good guy. The one that you should want. The last we saw him he was away from home, taking up lots of room on the bitter bus, and nursing a broken heart. It seems as though he will be returning home sooner than he thought. I can't wait to see how he handles everything and I am curious as to the woman who will help him get back to the sweet guy he once was.
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?
