Dirty Little Secret by Kendall Ryan Book Summary

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?

3.5 stars. That was 50 Shades the remake. But I did enjoy it.

I’m loving me some Gavin!. First off, I meant to give it 4.15 stars but obviously it’s not an option to rate with anything but whole #s when it comes to star ratings. Anyway, I totally love Gavin’s hot dominant personality-(& lust) over it too (; I just wish the sexual scenes in the books were more realistically BDSM in their style; He just came off as having a dominant personality during sex, not as an actual Dominant in a scene with his sub. Also, I felt Emma whined a tad much. I mean come on! You’ve got two gorgeous & great men wanting to be with you yet the feeling I got was that she complained about it a lot. Other than those complaints of mine I really enjoyed this book & the 2nd one as well! Can’t wait till the 3rd one! 💋😘😉😚

Absolutely worth it. Don't even hesitate. This is my favorite romance of the year. Add in mystery suspense brothers and sex-- yes! I'm sold!

This book left me speechless, I was left with only the feels!!. THIS BOOK left me with my heart racing. I can not believe what was happening at the end when I had thought Gavin and Emma had finally worked things out. Cooper ( and yes I do believe by accident) ends up spilling the beans about the past. I knew it was hidden, but I did not see it coming. Okay so what am I blabbering about here? Well I just literally finished reading Dirty Little Secret by Kendall Ryan. So forgive me having my thoughts all over the place. This will happen to you. You will be left speechless. You will be craving to know what is going to happen next. Starting from page one, I knew instantly that the title of this book held up to its name. I was not sure if this story was going to give us an ugly love triangle situation. Instead it was more heartbreaking. I loved the POV's we get from Cooper, Emma, and Gavin. I truly want to believe Cooper is a good guy. Just a little lost and yearning for Emma's love. He is Emma's comfort place. She seems to call on him when she is not sure she can trust Gavin. Oh and our Gavin is so damaged and craves control that I want to give him anything he wants and keep him safe! He is experiencing new feelings and having a hard time keeping it together. I am rooting for Gavin and Emma. I love Cooper, but I believe his person is still out there waiting. The ending scared me a bit and I am not sure how Emma will be able to truly trust Gavin. Dirty Little Secret will have you blood racing, heart pounding, and you will get a little over heated with the sexy scenes we get. And there a few HOT SEXY scenes in this book. I am still swooning over these men and keeping my fingers cross that it is not over for Gavin and Emma. Happy reading friends!!!

Left hanging. I enjoyed the book however was very disappointed not to have any sort of closure for the time I invested into reading it. Annoying that you have to buy an additional book in order to get that. You should allow your readers to buy additional books because they enjoyed your book not because it is the only way to have any closure on the story they have started.

Really Liked. I really liked the different dynamics between Emma and the two bothers... each relationship was different and special in their own way.

A must read!. 4.5 stars!! What an amazing read!!! Emma and Gavin are completely opposites, but it totally works for them. She brings out a side to him that seems to have been lost, and shows him how to really enjoy life. My heart broke for Gavin, and the demons he seems to be chasing off. Hot, steamy, and heartfelt, this book is definitely a must read!!!

Sexy new characters in a new series from one of my faves!. 4.5 Stars! What an amazing start to a new series from Kendall Ryan!! Dirty Little Secrets is a sexy, darker romance about Emma, the sexy librarian with a bad dating history, and Gavin Kingsley, the CEO and co-owner of Forbidden Desires. Emma is a great character. She is a bit unsure, but capable. She's been lusting after Gavin for a year but has never said a word to him. She is quiet at first, but gets stronger as the book goes on. Gavin is dark, delicious and alpha. He likes control, needs control and he wants Emma, but he denies himself because of things that happened in his past. So, here's the thing... full disclosure, this book is written from three perspectives (Emma, Gavin and his brother, Cooper). There is a love triangle of sorts (but not really. You'll understand when you read the book). The books allude to the possibility of a D/s relationship and Gavin is always in control when it comes to sex. I know some people do not like love triangles, but Kendall Ryan uses this for mainly plot development and I believe to set up Cooper's up coming story. We get Kendall Ryan's flowing and emotional writing style, complex and interesting characters and a developing plot that does end on a cliff-hanger (and it's a doozy). There is even a bit of suspense/mystery that will carry over to the next book. I love how Kendall Ryan develops a set of characters that you feel you have to have more of. I loved this new book! I'm emotionally invested in Gavin and Emma and finding out how their story will wrap up. This is a definite must read!

A great book to read. After reading this book I can say it’s a great book. It drew me in an I couldn’t put it down.

Boring. First of all- ZERO and i mean ZERO chemistry between Gavin and Emma. There actually was chemistry between cooper and Emma and when they were together my interest was slightly peaked but all in all this book was very boring and I’m sad i wasted my time reading it.

Sexy & Exciting. This was so unexpectedly good! At first I thought it would just be ok but what a shock it turned out to be! The characters were deep, exciting, sexy and just really surprising. I can't wait to read more in this series.

5 Infectious Stars!. What could I possibly say that would do this review justice with how extraordinarily amazing this book is? Dirty Little Secret radiates lust, passion, and mix of dark curiosities and desires that leave a powerful impression on the reader! Kendall Ryan delivers another scintillating and seductive must-read that's quite different from what we've come to love from her. Dirty Little Secrets is the type of book that you'll dive head first into, and one you won't be able to put down. Provocative, enticing, and mysterious, this story is a romance truly unlike others. The characters, the storyline, and the emotions all coincide in an intense foray that leave readers grasping for more. Powerful, dominating, and alluring, Dirty Little Secrets is a scorching hot love story that will provoke your inner vixen. 5 Infectious Stars!

Dirty little secret. I love this book. But cannot tell you how disappointed I was that half the book was a repeat of the previous book (word for word). So as much as I want to buy the next book I’m concerned that it will be formatted the same way

Amazing. Amazing book I finished the first 2 in 2 days lol thanks I’ll be going broke deff purchasing more of her books ❤️

AMAZING NOVEL. This book is a great novel to read. It’s filled with romance, intimacy, and plot changing events that makes you want to read more. Highly recommended; 10/10

Wow!. I could not put this book down. The character development and the story line had me sitting up all day to finish this book immediately!

Pretty hot but maybe disturbing. The first installment of the Dirty Little Secrets featuring the mysterious & hot Kingsley Brothers, it was a pretty hot but disturbing erotic story. It’s unnerving that Emma Bell didn’t really think things through when she unwittingly agreed to be an ‘private mistress’ to Gavin and his brother, Cooper?!? At least there’s no leather whips or hard paddle in this erotically charged story between Gavin and Emma!?? I actually read it all way through in one whole day!!

4 "Dirty Little Secret" stars!. Gavin Kingsley is a man with secrets. Dirty little secrets. Emma Bell is a reserved librarian fresh off of a terrible relationship. When she sees Gavin Kingsley the obsession begins. Does Gavin see her though? I really enjoyed this romance. How these two meet is actually very sweet, even though it may come off a bit stalker-y. Haha. Kendall Ryan did a great job making this story a bit unpredictable. A third player is thrown in the mix, to make sort of a triangle. If you don't like triangles I would still highly recommend this one to you. Ryan handles this instance very well in my opinion. This is also a LIGHT dominate/submissive relationship. LIGHT. The story itself has some darker themes. Do I think they are triggering, absolutely not. I don't want to say too much and ruin things, so I won't. What I will say is that there is a "To Be Continued" ending, but as someone who sometimes dislikes cliffhangers I would say this one is worth reading ASAP. All in all a great read. If you like contemporary with some dark themes, and a not so simple relationship... this is it!

Deliciously sexy start to the series!. 4.5 stars Oh man. This was just DELICIOUS! What a way to start a new series! This sexy alpha billionaire romance hooked me right from the start and was a great change of pace from the rom coms I've been reading lately. Don't get me wrong. I love a good laugh, but sometimes, you need to get a little dirty ;) Gavin and Emma both have some major emotional baggage and their experiences have left some pretty significant scars. There's a lot of push and pull between them, but once their histories come to light, it's easier to understand why. I loved that we got to be inside each of their heads (as well as Cooper's) because it really helps to understand the fears, insecurities, hopes, and desires waging battle in our character's minds. Did I agree with all the decisions our characters made? No, not at all, but that's what makes these characters so relatable. They are flawed individuals who make mistakes. When secrets are discovered, will the connection between Emma and Gavin be enough or will it rip them apart? This was a fantastic angsty read and I can't wait for the next book, Dirty Little Promise. *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

Ick. Nothing any female in this century should relate to.

Dirty Little Secret. Kendall never disappoints. I was all in from jump. The story line along with the characters are wonderful and it was enjoyable way to spend my Friday night reading this fabulous book. Thank you for delivering like you always do!

Dirty Secrets. I like how you left Ashley elusive; however, I kept waiting for the older brother “to jump in”—-

A sexy love triangle.. Emma Bell is an extremely shy librarian in lust with a man she’s never met. Every morning Emma sees him at the coffee shop she frequents, but never has the nerve to talk to him. They have had eye contact a few times, but then again why would he even notice her. The day he drops his business card in the tip jar, Emma knows that it’s meant for her. The last thing she expected was the name of an escort service, Forbidden Desires. Emma realizes that life is too short and she needs to start living it. Gavin Kingsley and his two brothers, Cooper and Quinn, run Forbidden Desires. An escort service where women can be escorts and feel safe doing so. When Emma walks into his office, Gavin pretends that he doesn’t know who she is, even thou he has been thinking of her for a long time now. Having his brother Cooper present during the interview, makes it easier. Coming to an agreement, both brothers decide that Emma will be their escort when either one has to attend a function. This could really get messy, since Cooper is also interested in Emma. Feeling apprehensive, Emma knows this is not going to end well. Cooper is kind, considerate, everything that Gavin is not. So why is she so drawn to him. Aware that he is keeping secrets, Emma wants to take a chance, knowing that there is a good chance she will get burned. My only complaint with this book, it’s a cliff hanger, ugh. Good thing is, the second book is out. Because of this, I highly recommend it.

DIRTY LITTLE SECRET. 4 1/2 STARS! Emotionally raw and tantalizing! I was hooked on the Kingsley brothers immediately! Yes, they are bad boys running a questionable business, but man are they hot! The character connection is explosive and leaves us gulping as we turn to the next page. Warning ... there is a cliffhanger! The good news is, the 2nd part of the series is out only a couple of weeks after the first, so it's a short time to wait for the conclusion. Great characters with an okay plot ... it's not super deep, but that's not really what you're looking for with this style of book. Looking forward to "Dirty Little Promise"! Naive librarian Emma Bell's last relationship and break-up was brutal, so she's been lying low being single for awhile ... well, except for Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome that she's been sort of stalking at the coffee shop every morning for months now! Gavin Kingsley runs a majorly successful business with his brothers. He's serious and demanding and used to getting what he wants in life. She doesn't think he's noticed her ... but he has ... and finally he leaves a little calling card to see if she takes the next step. Will she run for the hills when she learns all of his dirty little secrets?

Twisted. This book kept my interest till the last word ! So captivating. I held my breath on some of the chapters.

Good. Story is excellent ended to abruptly. Can’t wait to read more

Dirty little secrets. Great read

Book one. I read the prequel to this series only to find out it was actually the first half of book one. Frustrating. Also, the angst the male lead goes through is a tad over done. Prefer to read other authors’ from now on.

Terrible waste of time. The book is so rushed it isn’t in any way believable.

Dirty little secret. Absolutely loved this book
