Dirty Little Secret by Kendall Ryan
Rosa's rating: 4 of 5 iScream Cones
"He was dominant and gruff and mysterious."
Dirty Little Secret was my introduction to Kendall Ryan. Yeah, I know. Where have I been, right? Well, the synopsis intrigued me and I finally got a chance to check her out. I enjoyed her writing style. She drew me in, kept me guessing, and then left me hanging. But no worries, I'll be back for more abuse as soon as Forbidden Desires, #2 is available.
She is a true 'sexy librarian'. She has no idea that she's leaving men drooling with her curves and pencil skirts. Actually, she's the one that's been doing the drooling. She had a secret crush on a stranger that she saw in a coffee shop. He was all dark and mysterious, sexy in a suit. He never even spoke to her. But she was drawn to him.
Gavin is one of three brothers who own Forbidden Desires. It's a very successful escort service with very elite clientele. He has no need to seek out women, they are readily available to him. But when he sees her , he wants her. She is so responsive to him, without out even realizing it. He can't stop thinking about her. He needs to let her go. But he won't.
When she learns his name, and discovers the type of business he owns, she's intrigued. When she finally meets him face to face, he's bossy, and rude, and arrogant. She should just walk away. But she can't.
The story is a page-turner that kept me guessing. She has a past that makes her doubt herself, giving her a good reason to mistrust men. He has a past that has hardened him, molding him into a man that needs control. They are drawn to each other like magnets. They fight it, but it's too strong. Will he steal her light? Will she absorb his darkness? Can they find a way to navigate the shadows together? Or will his dirty little secret
ruin them both?
Well don't ask me! I'll be right here waiting for the next book to find out. The line forms here...
