MY RATING: 3.5 STARS 

DIRTY LITTLE SECRET: Is the first instalment within the erotic new series (Forbidden Desires) duet by Author, Kendall Ryan. 

Dirty secrets. We all have them. We guard them fiercely, protecting them like a mother does a precious newborn infant, cradled to her chest, away from the world’s prying eyes. Yet those dark, forbidden desires we crave won’t stay hidden for long. They have a way of coming out—usually at the most inopportune time. 

In this we meet thirty year old single, head librarian, Emma Bell who harboured a secret crush on a dashing, tall, dark and sinful stranger she encountered daily in her local coffee shop, they never ever exchanged words, or even connected eye contact. She knew nothing about him, not even his name, only that he played a role in all her fantasies when alone at night. 

What she didn't know was he'd seen her, he'd noticed her. 

Until one morning at that same coffee shop they both frequent, instead of leaving a tip in the tip jar he left behind a business card, was that intentional or purely by accident? It didn’t take her long to convince the girl behind the teller that she wanted that card, only to satisfy her questions, what was his name, his job of choice.

What she did find out she never in a million years bargained for. Forbidden Desires offers high end escort services to exclusive clients and is co-owned by three dashing brothers, Cooper, Quinn and Gavin, each one as good looking as the other. But there's only room for one alpha male and that role goes to Gavin. 

Gavin is beyond shocked to see demure shy Emma in his office, applying to work for them. And this is where it gets interesting. Both brother's are interested in Emma, but one more than the other, she'll be their eye candy at black tie events where she will smzoozle with the rich men and bring new clients to Forbidden Desires. 

The girl every guy wants to be seen with. Sweet enough to bring home to mother, hot enough to imagine her on her knees. 

Now let's get onto Gavin, in the beginning he was an arrogant prick, I kind of liked the brother over him, did I warm u p to Gavin in the end? Meh the jury's still out on that. 

MY THOUGHTS: This grabbed me in the beginning and was living up to my expectations but then it kind of fizzled out and I was left struggling trying to even finish it, I went into this thinking I'd be getting a smutty dirty read, something that would have me hiding my ipad if I were out in public, the dirty filthy sex, the over the top alpha male that dominates the female, but it didn't live up to what I was needing, wanting, craving, and left me feeling a wee bit deflated, it's well executed, the writing style flows effortlessly but I felt like I was reading what I'd read before and it didn't really stick out above from the crowd of all other books that are out there like this one. And for that reason alone is why this is getting 3.5 stars and not 5. 

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?
