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 isn’t a book I would normally read. It touches on something that I consider a hard limit in the books I choose to read. But because it was written by one of my all time favorite authors I still had to give it a chance.
If you are a lover of a angsty love triangle then this is the book for you. As for me it isn’t my favorite Kendall Ryan book. The storyline was interesting enough and I really loved all the characters we meet but the love triangle or the “game” Cooper and Gavin were playing is exactly why I don’t like reading romance novels with triangles in them.
Now after finishing the book, I was happy to see that by about 60% into the story the direction of the story had changed and this was and is the Kendall Ryan I love to read.
I will say that even though there is a triangle in this story I was thoroughly immersed in the lives of Emma and Gavin. This book drew me in and didn’t let go until the very end and that just left me wanting more!!! Thankfully we have a short wait for the second book in this series.
Dirty Little Secret is NOT a standalone novel, you are left on a cliffhanger but I wouldn’t consider it a nail biter. It is an interesting twist to the storyline and I can’t wait to see where this story goes. This story is told through multiple POV’s. I really enjoyed that because I thought all the voices we heard were crucial to this book. We needed to read all the thoughts happening with all the characters .
I don’t want to say anymore about the storyline of this book, you need to read it for yourself and see which way you want the story to go. I have my favorite and I am looking forward to seeing if it is how this story ends.
I would definitely recommend this book to everyone who is a lover of a romance with a love triangle. Also be prepared to meet an arrogant, cocky and dominant Hero that will work his way into your heart.
