I'm a Romance Junkie! Love Whispersycn Deals! Tips I use: Sort reviews Most Recent; play with narration speed, some narrators sound better.
This was an entertaining story, full of action, suspense and lots of steamy romance. Kennedy aka Eva, and Nix were one unlikely pair; she was the agent, he was the hacker, but the chemistry and attraction between them was off the charts. I enjoyed plot, the twists, and liked how the authors weaved all the secrets, betrayal, lust and suspensions throughout the story. Kennedy's character was a little annoying. She was suppose to be this well trained secret agent but it seemed liked she kept getting herself into one dangerous situations after another, and Nix had to come to her rescue.
Dirty Secret was well worth the sale price, and I'll definitely be looking for more audios by either narrator.
The protagonist, Kennedy/Eva is a mess! She's a HORRIBLE spy/covert operative. Her love interest Nix, is perfect. Exactly what he's supposed to be. But the problem is, Nix susses Eva/Kennedy out in a matter of seconds, then blows her cover in under 24 hours. After that she just keeps making mistake after mistake after massive blunder. I'm sorry, but the feminist in me was just SHREIKING. I couldn't get past it. I was so disgusted by her ineptitude that I DNF's at 20-30%. ugh. If you don't mind picking up a spy/romance thrill where the female lead is a vapid, addled mistake ridden ninny , go for it. I just couldn't do it. Nope.
Absolutely, I usually enjoy Chelle's writing, this one however missed the mark, by A LOT! Chelle, Chelle, Chelle, why oh why did you make your supposed female super spy a complete nit wit? Have you no faith in your own sex at all? We are so much more than a sum of our parts, my dear. Seriously.
I love love LOVE Sebastion York. and he did not disappoint here, Kristen Leigh, was really excellent here as well. But the weak, simpering female lead was just a total dud for me.
Disappointment and IRE. You know, the US actually has very effective, very powerful, very amazing female covert agents. Too bad the writers couldn't have referenced any of them when creating their portrayal of "Eva". For an example, Valerie Plame comes to mind. And let's not forget there haven't been a slew of powerful female sleuths in literature. I just don't know WHERE or HOW they went so wrong, but boy did they.
Wish I could get my money back. Der. But, thems the breaks, babe.
This is the first book by Chelle Bliss that I have listened to. The format is the dual narration where the narrators reading entire POV chapters. I thought both of them nailed it. This book is so much more than the typical romance. It has character development, action, hot sex and unexpected twists and turns. I would love to see the author continue writing some more stories based on other characters in this book as they would be so good, yet standalone. (Wolf would be my next pick). I loved the character of Kennedy (Eva) and came to enjoy Phoenix. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I was given this review copy audiobook at no charge upon my request by the author, publisher, and/or narrator and my review is totally voluntary.
What a story.. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. I know we all like a good alpha hero but we we get here is A strong confident tough heroine that you will love!!! my adrenaline is still pumping from Kennedy's adventure!! I'm definitely hoping we get more from this kicka@@ heroine!!
so good. This story is a must!!!
Enjoy romance, erotic, and YA
This is a spin off character from Dirty Work. It was an enjoyable listen with adventure, secrets (lots of character secrets), spies, hackers, jealousy & sex. Narrators were great! It was worth my credit.
Worth the wait, I had the book for awhile but I held off until the audiobook was released.
Loved it, and if you like Chelle & Brenda`s books you will really enjoy this one.
I enjoyed the story and plot, although a little far fetched, and the narration really helped keep my interest.
Dirty Secret isn't what I would have expected when I read the title, It was so much better.
Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert did an outstanding job of telling a story that will not only get your attention, but keep you on the edge of your seat. This one had me biting my nails and ready to throw my kindle one minute and fanning myself the next.
Keep them coming ladies, if your characters get as hot as Phoenix and Kennedy you may have to put a warning label on them though :)
Action packed and fast pasted enough that it keeps the story moving.
When Nix and Kennedy work together in the vault it is pretty cool, then the cover-up is kind of funny in a weird way.
Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.
I listened straight through today. It was one of those books that I just couldn't stop listening to. It was nonstop action, no down time. I constantly wanted to know what was going to happen. I loved it.
Kennedy is a black ops agent and Phoenix Ash is on the wrong side of the law and also Kennedy's target. Unfortunately for both of them, they end up catching feelings for each other.
I loved the strong female character of Kennedy. There were times, either with her language or behavior, that I had a hard time buying into her being an agent. However by the end, I was convinced and buying into everything she was selling. Phoenix, or Ash as he's known, is every girls dream. Alpha and hot and all man. He was such a great character to read. I'm in love.
Kirsten Leigh is a great narrator. She is a fantastic narrator! I think a little bit of the reason I had a hard time connecting with the toughness of Kennedy, however, was Kirsten's sweet, kind and passive voice. Her narration was great. Totally spot on. But her voice was just not quite aggressive or dominant enough to pass for a black ops agent. Sebastian York is amazing. SebYo is my spirit animal. He is so good at everything he does. He was a perfect Ash. Loved it.
