Review Blitz + Blurb Update : DIRTY LITTLE SECRET by Kendall Ryan

September 14, 2017

Forbidden Desires Book 1
By Kendall Ryan
Release Day – Sept 14, 2017

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 30th.

Gah! Dirty Little Secret made me crave for more Gavin and Emma! Lawd have mercy, but Kendall Ryan slayed this one! I was on the edge with the angst, my reader was so hot and I felt like I was burning inside. I was teased to no end, my throat was so parched, I couldn't quench my thirst and I am starved, I needed more!

There's a reason why I always rooted all things Kendall Ryan. Her works were kind of drug to me. No matter how short it is graced with insta love and insta-lust, I always go back to her works. I mean, I sort of knew it's how her works roll, but no matter I'm still in awe of her talent. It's addicting and is easy to connect with. But more than that, I love her words and I always rooted for it because I know in the end she'll left me with satisfaction.
Dirty Little Secret is no different. When I read the Prologue I couldn't help myself to keep on turning the pages. I sort of planned to read just few chapters, but I finished it in one sitting. It was soooo good but there's no way I will spoil you or give you any details because this book needs to be read blind. The blurb will give you a stronng foundation of the story already. It might be vague but start with it. It's intersting AF as it is and when you started it, know that you'll immediately get lost to the bubble they created. It's sexy AF, it's captivating yet will tease you and will ignite that fire within you. Lawd! I have been swearing because it kept me on the edge. Other than that, I love the charcacters too. Emma, She was a classic girl-next-door type. A walking wet dream... - was just perfect to the commanding yet broken Gavin Kingsley. As Emma puts it, Gavin wasn’t a fantasy. He was a nightmare. With Kendall's fantastic writing, these character's just came to life. I was dead! So dead! I love it and I enjoyed the flow of the story. It's just really good.Swear you'll be in for a great treat!

Overall, I highly recommend this book. It's well paced and will keep you hooked. The characters portrayal was excellent and I love how each have unique individualities that'll make you fall in love with them with every turn of the pages. It's sexy, it's hot yet fun to read. As I go along with my journey with them, I was entranced with the how the story felt. It's erotic, intriguing yet bound with mystery I so wanted to unfold. I love it too much and I can't wait for the next book.


⭐⭐⭐3 Stars ⭐⭐⭐

“Dirty little Secret is a well written story about what happens when you fall a brooding powerful CEO and the consequences of being a part of his world. 

Emma Bell is a quiet librarian. Her job is the most important thing to her and everything else comes second and unfortunately that includes her love life. But there’s one thing that seems to brighten her day if only for a moment and that’s getting a glimpse of the sexy suit wearing handsome man that gets his coffee from her regular coffee shop. No talking is necessary and for Emma, just seeing his face everyday is enough for her. But fate has a different plan and Emma is about to go into the unknown world of Gavin Kingsley and his brother. 

Gavin Kingsley has it all. Money, women, more money, aaaand…. More women. Life is pretty damn good for the unattainable bachelor and he wouldn’t have it any other way. Seeing the shy brunette everyday while he get his morning coffee has been an indulgence that he can’t seem to shake no matter how hard he tries. She’s temptation in every way but dragging her into his world would be a disaster. But you know what they say about temptation: it’s a b*tch and eventually you will give in. How long will Gavin try to keep Emma away from his secret dark world? 

I’m going to be honest here: I truly enjoyed the beginning of the story and I liked that Emma’s character was a little bit different but somewhere along the line, I lost interest in these characters. What was supposed to be a possible love triangle didn’t feel like one and I became disinterested in Gavin and Emma’s relationship. Maybe it was just me and what I was feeling at the time but I thought this was going to be a dark read but that didn’t happen and everything that I supposed to feel for Gavin and Emma wasn’t there. 

Seeing that this is the first book in the series, I’m actually looking forward to seeing how everything is going to play out. If you love a hot, alpha that knows how to dominate well in the bedroom, then this one is for you .
