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.

Dirty Little Secret was a sexy and intriguing first installment in the Forbidden Desires series, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I loved Kendall Ryan’s writing style and the storyline and characters she created. It was unique and interesting, and I wanted to know more from the very beginning.

   Gavin, Emma, and Cooper were great and I enjoyed getting to know them. I liked all of their personalities, Emma and Cooper’s more than Gavin’s, and I enjoyed the chemistry and relationships they had together. Their arrangement was certainly different, but it was pretty clear from the beginning who Emma really desired. I liked how the story progressed and that it was told from Gavin, Emma, and Cooper’s POV. I also really liked Quinn, Gavin and Cooper’s oldest brother, and I’m looking forward to reading more about him in the rest of the series. There were several instances throughout that frustrated me, and I didn’t love Gavin’s hot and cold personality, but it wasn’t enough to truly annoy me. Emma and Cooper (Gavin had his moments) were very likable characters, and I liked the friendship they had. It will definitely be interesting to see where things go in the next book, Dirty Little Promise. By the way, Dirty Little Secret ends in a cliffhanger, but the story will be concluded in Dirty Little Promise.

   Dirty Little Secret was sexy and entertaining, and I dare say Kendall Ryan’s best book to date. I truly enjoyed reading the first part of Gavin, Emma, and Cooper’s story, and I am very much looking forward to reading the conclusion in Dirty Little Promise, as well as the rest of the Forbidden Desires series.
