Gavin Kingsley burst into my life in a sharp and unexpected twist of fate. You know his type—arrogant, dangerously handsome and impossible to ignore.

Something dark within him calls to the shadows inside me. I long for the kind of heart-wrenching passion I've only read about, and his tragic past reads like one of my favorite literary classics. Raw. Visceral. Captivating. Together, we're a perfect mess.

The deeper I fall into his world, the more I crave him like a drug—he pushes every boundary I have, and challenges everything I thought I wanted. I want to unlock his heart. I want his dirty secrets.

But in the end, will he be the blade that cuts me ... or the bond that makes my life complete?

Written in the same vein as Kendall Ryan's New York Times bestselling and much loved international phenomenon, Filthy Beautiful Lies, Dirty Little Secret begins an erotic new series.

5 stars for the oldest profession in the world and it's "escort" façade face in DIRTY LITTLE SECRET.

Everybody has their dirty little secrets. The things that prevent them from running for public office or that compel them to look unrecognizable so the other PTA moms never find out they enjoy sex clubs. Gavin Kingsley doesn't really care who knows his. The high-end escort business he and his brothers run, Forbidden Desires, counts Boston's elite among their clientele, but when Emma Bell walks into Gavin's office looking sexy as sin and curious as hell, he knows there's no way he'd let those vultures near the curvy librarian. He and his brother Cooper strike a deal with Emma to pay her to be their dates to schmoozy events all over town…sex not included. Emma has been lusting over Gavin for a year, and as hot as Cooper is, she's only got eyes for his brother. Can she slip under his defenses or will he push her away like every other person in his life?

If anyone reads my reviews, they know I'm a huge fan of Ms. Ryan's work, which is usually funny and sexy at the same time. DIRTY LITTLE SECRET, the first book in the Forbidden Desires series, is decidedly darker yet no less erotic, and she absolutely hits the bullseye with this one! I'd like to say Gavin's moody-broody persona made me drool, but it was really the more playful Cooper who I wanted more of! I'd have loved to have read a nice little scene featuring Emma in a Kingsley sandwich, but alas, I had to "settle" for the deliciously kinky side of the middle brother's Dominant needs. Woe is me!

Anyway, I loved Emma and Gavin together, their chemistry just jumped off the e-pages and had me furiously swiping to see what Ms. Ryan had in store next. And while there wasn't a whole lot of actual sex involved in DIRTY LITTLE SECRET, the foreplay was yummy enough that I didn't mind one bit. This is a fabulous start to a new series and I really can't wait for more dirty little secrets courtesy of the Kingsley men, especially since the book ended in a cliffhanger that made me throw my kindle across the damn room!

Bottom Line: Kind of OM and sharing between brothers, but not REALLY; condom use; mild BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; no violence/murder.
