"Kendall Ryan's BEST BOOK YET!!! -Bookalicious Babes Blog

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

Secrets Explored

by MJM2003

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. What fantastic, complicated and complex characters we have in this book created by Kendall Ryan. Emma, like everyone , has secrets that she has tried to avoid but when she meets Gavin, the cold, calculating distant and objective man or sometimes the sweetheart who is so caring, loving and protective, he helps her work through some of her secrets. But he has some of his own that he is scared to reveal to anyone. They have both been watching the other for months when they get their cup of coffee in the morning when he leaves his business card one day which she takes and finds him. This begins their story. But secrets usually do get exposed and can Emma cope with Gavin's? A fantastic tale that is woven throughout the story that will keep you turning page after page. A winning book.

This is the first book of the Forbidden Desires series. I definitely recommend this thrilling and sexy book. This book had my emotions on a rollercoaster ride, but I loved it anyways. I love books that bring out more than one emotion. I cant wait to read more books in this series.

This is the first book I read by the author even though she is not a new author and OMGosh Kendall Ryan brought it with this one. I was surprised it ended in a cliffhanger but what an enticing read! With three hot & sexy alpha brothers, (we don't find out alot about Quinn, the 3rd but oldest brother) I hope the series will follow each of the three brothers as they find the one woman to complete each of them. What comes to mind when describing Dirty Little Secret ....hot, amazing, tantalizing, steamy, overbearing, sexy, commanding, edgy, lust, thrilling, addictive, intriguing, love, passionate. It is a well written, fun & exciting book that will 'suck' you in and hook you. Who does Emma complete....Gavin or Quinn? What does Kendall Ryan have in store for us. I can't wait to see what's next for Emma, Gavin, Cooper & Quinn. You definitely need to one-click this read and I not only recommend this book but also this full series.

LOVED this book!!!

by Christy W.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book
Emma Bell has been watching Gavin Kingsley walk into the coffee shop every morning at 7:50am before he goes off into the corporate world for months! A stunning, mysterious man that looks that astounding in a suit and seems to be so very in control of his life.
For a few seconds a day, Emma fantasizes about Gavin’s life and her being a part of it. But when Gavin leaves behind a business card for Emma, she steps up and takes a chance and contacts Gavin’s company, not having ANY idea what she is in for….
Gavin and Cooper Kingsley.
And they BOTH want Emma.
OH I almost threw my kindle when I realized this book ended in a cliffhanger I CANNOT wait to read the next book

wow, just wow!

Emma has been going to the same coffee shops for months now, because of him. She hopes he will say something against her and notice her, because she thinks he is hot.
One day he leaves his card and she finds out more about him and his business. She decides to go there and find him. Getting herself involved with Gavin and his brother Cooper. Gavin is the dark and grumpy one and Cooper the easy going one. But of course Emma falls for Gavin.

I like the way he acts like he doesn't care about her, but in the mean time he doesn't like it that his brother is going out with her too.
The moment in the limo is so hot, just wow. How he takes care of her. But afterwards, sigh.
But I can't help feeling sorry for him, because as a reader you know his side too and how his brother is playing with him.

Great story, full of fun, the day out Emma arranges for Gavin is so sweet!
And sparks who fly everywhere and the moments when Gavin does act, pfff so hot steaming hot.

I couldn't stop reading, I needed to know what was going to happen next. Only pity about the story is that this is a first part and not a whole book.
Looking forward to read the next part.
