New Release + 4.5-Star Review: Dirty Little Secret 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 9th.

Tracey’s Review

There’s just something about Emma Bell that captures the attention of the Kingsley brothers. Working closely with them is proving to be interesting, to say the very least, and often downright confusing. Because two of them want her, but the darkness in one calls to her over the light in the other…

I’m a firm believer that good things come to those who wait. This is a good thing, because, goodness gracious, Kendall Ryan has gone and left me hanging off the edge of one heck of a cliff, and I am loving it.

The romance industry has just exploded, and there are so many books out at any given time that it’s sometimes hard to find the one that resonates at every level. Kendall’s writing, though, is extremely well done, and this story is just one that drew me in. I’m familiar with the theme of pleasure through power, but DIRTY LITTLE SECRET, the first book in the Forbidden Desires series, is more than that, and Kendall’s characters, the backstory, the push and pull dynamic between not one, but two of the dashing Kingsley brothers just hooked me. Kendall has done a fine job of mixing the sweet with the edgy, the courtly with the controlling, and I was engaged by this story from the first page. I just could not put it down, wanting to see what those dirty little secrets might be.

I know that cliffhangers do not work for every reader, but I don’t mind the idea of delayed gratification, if it means that the story is going to satisfy. I can’t wait for more angst, more heat, more back and forth, between these characters, and I have every confidence that Kendall will satisfy and then some when we get the conclusion to Emma’s, Gavin’s, and Cooper’s story in DIRTY LITTLE PROMISE.

Would I recommend DIRTY LITTLE SECRET to fans of romance? I certainly would, and do. Readers that like some mystery, some sweetness, and plenty of super-steamy moments should add this one to their TBR, and get ready for the reveal when the next book comes along.
