Review! Dirty Little Promise (Forbidden Desires #2) by Kendall Ryan


Conflicted in the depth of her feelings for bad boy Gavin Kingsley, lonely librarian Emma Bell knows he’s all wrong for her—yet the heart wants what it wants.

But if she gives into his dark, erotic desires will she lose herself completely?

Passion, drama and suspense combine in the highly-anticipated conclusion to Emma Bell’s love affair with the alpha and enigmatic Kingsley brothers. Secrets will be exposed, sides will be chosen, and nothing will ever be the same.

This is book two in the series, following Dirty Little Secret.




Official Review!

I received a copy and voluntarily left a review.

It wasn’t that long ago that Kendall Ryan introduced us to three mouth watering alpha males and their company Forbidden Desires and I couldn’t help but fall hopelessly in love with each one of them! I was beyond giddy about getting back to this fictional world and I couldn’t wait to see how Emma Bell’s love story would play out with two of the yummy Kingsley brothers. As with Dirty Little Secret, the first book in the Forbidden Desires series, Kendall Ryan had my heart in a permanent mode of whip lash between my heart melting from the sweet and endearing Cooper Kingsley and readily submitting to the domineering ways of Gavin Kingsley.

Emma learns some disturbing news that leads her right into the arms of Cooper and gives her great uncertainty on whether to ever be around Gavin again. If only love and desire were that easy. Many questions are answered and more secrets and new enemies are unearthed. Emma shows great strength throughout her story and my admiration grew by leaps and bounds.

Kendall let us in to this dark hero’s world little by little until the reader might be more in love with him than Emma is. The more I learned about Gavin’s past the more I have come to understand his need to dominate and have control. If you are looking for a new Prince of Darkness to fall for, Gavin is your guy!

If Gavin over takes a reader’s heart with darkness, Cooper charms his way into our hearts with light. He is smooth and charismatic and impossible not to love in every single way! My heart flutters and I turn into a simpering fool every time he opens that delicious mouth of his and shows his love for Emma in all his selfless acts of kindness.

Kendall delivers a fantastic, shivering, climactic conclusion to Emma’s story in Dirty Little Promise that is sure to leave readers drooling over the Kingsley brothers even more. I highly recommend the Forbidden Desires series for danger, dark desires, and love beyond your wildest dreams! I cannot wait to step back into this fictional world and learn everything that I can about these enigmatic brothers!

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 am I expected to resist when the sexual sparks zap between us and set me on fire? The need to control, and claim her force my walls to come tumbling down, but when she learns my dirty little secret, will my world come crashing down with it?
