Publisher's Summary

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?

    "Just amazing!!!"

    Loved this!!!
    Kendall Ryan once again has created a fictional world that you just want to jump into!!

    The story line is unlike anything she's ever created and I'm wowed by her creativity and originality of character development.

    Narration was perfect! Megan Turing was perfect as Emma! And....Zachary Webber just brings the story to life once again and leaves me speechless with his depiction of the Kingsley brothers.

    So looking forward to Dirty Little Promise!!

    "Great narration, decent story"

    This was a decent listen. A quick story without much depth. The narrators did a great job. It was the story that was lacking for me. The ending was abrupt and the character development felt like too many characters I’ve read about before. I will listen to audio 2. Hopefully it will be a bit more interesting.

    "My Thoughts on Dirty Little Secret"

    Dirty Little Secret was one of those books that I absolutely enjoyed reading or listening to. It was filled with secrets and steam and great story telling. It had those characters that you just love and want more of, hopefully in the form of their own book in future. But then there were also those characters that drove you a little bit crazy and made you want to shake them at times.

    Gavin was gruff and broody and sometimes a huge jerk, but I can't help feeling that there is even more then we know from this book that has made him this way. And what we do learn definitely helps to be a bit understanding. There were moments though that the level of jerk seemed extreme and I wanted to throw something.

    Emma on the other hand was sweet and curious and had a bit of an obsessive side when or came to Gavin, but what I learned about her had me only wanting kindness and all things good to come her way. There were moments when Gavin wasn't the one I wanted for her just because I thought she deserved a nice guy.

    However the chemistry and connection between these two is impossible to deny.

    In the end I was left with so many questions and I am desperate to read book two and get the answers to my questions.

    Zachary Webber was fantastic and I loved his voice for Gavin, Cooper, and even the female lines he had to say. Megan Tusing was new to me but pretty good as well.

    "Love forbidden romances!!"

    I adore books about quite librarians with a naughtier side to them. Emma just hasn’t found her naughty side quite yet as she just left a physically abusive relationship. So here she is, this quite, beautiful woman who wants to help find herself again. She totally obsesses over this guy at a coffee shop and as chance finally works out for her, she gets his business card and now, the stalking kicks off! OK, ok… not exactly stalking but close anyway. I was really torn here… do we go for Gavin? Gavin the CEO of a very exclusive escort service. Or Cooper, Cooper the sexy and sweet man? Tough call for a woman with no options one minute and then she’s oozing sex the next minute!

    I really liked Emma! She’s quite, she’s no risk taker, and she barely mustered the courage to leave an abusive relationship. So now she finds herself seduced by Gavin and Cooper! AND with another job as their exclusive escort… can you imagine?

    So here is where I faltered a bit. I really expected some super naughty business going down now! But it kind of petered out. I think it’s the name mostly, Dirty Little Secret, you think you’re just getting that. It fell a bit short for me. I love Kendall Ryan’s writing. Her characterization building. Even the chemistry was there. Not exactly what I come to expect from a Kendall Ryan book.

    So I've read this book and enjoyed it but audio is always so different and fun to listen too! This audio pulled me in from the first word spoken. The narrators, Zachary Webber and Megan Tusing did an amazing job on the characters. Megan seriously brought Emma to life for me! As my first Webber book, I'm kicking myself for not knowing his narrations were so enjoyable!! He is able to do different male characters justice. I was worried it would be too similar and I'd get lost but that wasn't the case! I loved it! Way to go Megan and Zachary! Superb job!

    "Loved this forbidden Romance!"

    This forbidden romance is intriguing and left me wanting more! Emma has been struggling to overcome an abusive relationship. But the sexy man in the coffee shop has had her attention for months. She has the opportunity to find out where he works, and takes the chance at meeting this sexy CEO, Gavin, on his own turf. A twist happens that she didn't see happening, and soon she is deep in the lives of not only the brooding Gavin, but his two brothers as well. Gavin was not prepared for the sexy librarian to enter his life or to make him feel again, but he is helpless to stay away from her. Unfortunately, everyone has secrets and when they are exposed, they are left reeling. This is an intriguing and sexy story. Narrators Zachary Webber and Megan Tusing did a good job in bringing these characters to life. Their voice changes were enjoyable and their timing and inflections were spot on. This is my first book by Ms Ryan and I will definitely look for more of her work, especially the next book, Dirty Little Promise, so I can find out what happens next!

    "Promising story with great narration"

    I will start by saying that this audio had me from the get go. The story has a good overall set up and the narration from both Zachary Webber & Megan Tusing is very well done. I am afraid of the story becoming predictable but will give the next audio a shot since this audio was very intriguing.

    "Great Start to a New Series"

    Zachary Webber and Megan Tusing did a great job at narrating which really helped me get into the story a lot quicker than I probably would of if I was reading it, but that's not to say that I didn't enjoy it as I did and the chemistry between the characters were easy and natural.

    I can't wait to see how everything is going to turn out for the Emma and the brothers.

    Story
    "A little dark, intense and mysterious."

    Kendall Ryan skillfully navigates her audience through this roller coaster ride of a story. She has created intense characters with interesting, challenging and somewhat tragic back stories and put them together in somewhat mysterious, slightly dark and definitely intense circumstances.

    The somewhat innocent head librarian Emma Bell finds herself in a non-relationship tug-of-war between Gavin Kingsley and his brother. However the heart wants what it wants, which apparently means Gavin with his inner darkness, his need to dominate and his secrets. Just when Emma bypasses some seemingly insurmountable obstacles and feels she may be able to connect with Gavin, a dark secret involving a past tragedy promises to send the characters into another tailspin.

    This plot has all the potential for a HEA but the reader will not find it in this book. Luckily there is more to come in the next part of Gavin and Emma's story. I am looking forward to listening to the next book.

    I really appreciated the two narrators for this book as it maked it easier to keep track of whose POV was being focused on at any given point in the story. Zachary Webber and Megan Tusing each do a wonderful job of bring the characters' inner thoughts and turmoil to life.

    This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

    "Super hot duet"

    Self made millionaire and super hot alpha male Gavin Kingsley doesn’t do relationships, not since his relationship ended with his long time girl friend years earlier. He runs a successful escort agency with his two brothers, and he has plenty of women vying for his attention, why spend time with the same woman twice. But, after a year of eye flirting with meek and mild, yet super sexy librarian Emma Bell, he finds himself leaving his business card in her sights, and yes, she takes the bait. Emma has been fantasising about the sexy stranger she semi stalks every morning in the coffee shop and when she finds his business card, curiosity gets the better of her and she finds herself in the offices of the exclusive escort agency, Forbidden Desires. Meeting Gavin’s younger brother Cooper and coming to an agreement with both brothers, I’m thinking she bit off more than she could chew, but admirably she manages quite well with the advances from both brothers. I love the writing and the story so much, and surprisingly the fact that it's a duet and a cliffie didn't ruin it for me (probably because I've just purchased book 2, and I'm getting stuck in as soon as I've written this review). I can't wait to find out where book two takes me and although I have an inkling about Gavin’s past I'm thinking there are going to be a few skeletons coming out of the closet from both Emma and Gavin. I received a copy of this audiobook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. The narration from Zachery Webber is spot on, I love it. Megan Tusing was the perfect librarian. Brilliant audio.

    "A compelling, character driven story"

    Kendall Ryan really knows how to get into a reader’s head and heart. And man, can she write a heck of a sex scene. I felt so many different emotions listening to this book. It’s a day later and I’m still thinking about it, what happened, what could happen, how things are going to play out in the next book.

    The sweet sexy librarian and the bad boy, you know I was going to love it, and I did. This book grabbed me from the first chapter and never let go. I had to listen to the book in one sitting because I had to know what was happening, who needs food or exercise when you are engrossed in a fantastic story? Not this girl! I did feel some of the details were a little repetitive at times, nothing major and it didn’t really interfere with the story, just personal taste, I guess. I feel like book two is going to break me, in the best possible way. I’m stocking up on Kleenex just in case.

    The characters in this story are really quite compelling. I’ve been thinking about this for a day or two now and I loved the interactions and how each character was so unique and not at all what you’d expect. I loved Emma, I thought she was a sweetheart. She’d been through hell but didn’t let that dull her sparkle and her strength shone throughout the book. Yeah, she’s a librarian, but Kendall didn’t make her your typical librarian, which I loved, because what rulebook says they have to be sweet and innocent?
    Gavin was such a complex character, he’d obviously experienced a lot of hurt in his life and now guards himself, to his own detriment. I just wanted him to open up to Emma and let her in. I may have shouted at him to tell her everything, that she’d understand. But when do characters ever do what I tell them? I liked the conflict he was going through, you get to experience that with him throughout the book, his head and heart pulling him in different directions.

    The relationship between Gavin and Emma gave me whiplash, seriously, I wanted to take that man by the…. ok, I’ll take a breath and calm myself. He drove me a little crazy. He’d be so sweet one moment and the next he’d be a total jerk. I felt so bad for Emma, but at the same time, I was getting frustrated because she kept going back, although, he is kinda irresistible, so it makes sense. The chemistry between Gavin and Emma was undeniable and I think that is why even though Cooper was amazing, I was rooting for Gavin. You can’t fight against that sort of attraction. With that being said I am so excited to get the next book and see where the story leads, I hope that things can be resolved because they are explosive together and I’m a sucker for a happily ever after.

    Both narrator voices complemented each other and worked perfectly together for the story. I’ll definitely be seeking out their combo in the future.
    This was my first audiobook narrated by Megan Tusing and I really enjoyed her performance, on a couple of occasions it sounded like the characters had a southern drawl, but it was a kind of blink and you miss it sort of moment, enough to warrant a mention but not enough to impact the overall performance or knock it down a star. The switch between male and female voices was smooth and each voice was distinct. Megan was perfect for Emma; a sweet but commanding performance. I am really looking forward to listening to more from Megan.

    This was not my first experience with Zachary Webber, that man has skill, I thoroughly enjoyed his performance. He narrates the POV chapters for both Gavin and Cooper. When I first realised that was going to happen I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about it; if it’s another person, it needs another voice, right? Nope. Webber is that good that it didn’t require another narrator. Each character is so distinct and he really gives life to each one. His performance of Gavin was my favourite, he has that commanding tone to his voice that suited the character perfectly.
