REVIEW – DIRTY LITTLE PROMISE (Forbidden Desires #2) by Kendall Ryan


The secret I’d discovered about sexy billionaire Gavin Kingsley was so big, so haunting wasn’t something I could overcome. I had a decision to make—hear him out and see where things went, or turn to his brother Cooper, who I was fairly certain was in love with me. But something dark inside of Gavin called to something dark inside of me. And I wasn’t willing to just walk away—not yet anyway.

This is the conclusion to Emma Bell’s epic love affair with the alpha and enigmatic Kingsley brothers. Secrets will be exposed, sides will be chosen, and nothing will ever be the same.

My heart was so full, so full of her, of her love, I felt like anything was possible. She made me strong and brave and whole. And I knew with certainty I’d love her until my dying breath.



In the conclusion to the first story in the Forbidden Desires series, questions are answered and it seems there is no end to a number of enemies that are out to destroy the Kingsley empire. Some of the drama manages to impact Emma as well. When Dirty Little Secret ended, Emma was stunned when she learned some of what transpired between Gavin and his deceased ex-girlfriend Ashley. The biggest shocker was when Emma found a picture of Ashley through a google search. Her resemblance to Gavin’s ex was undeniably disturbing.

Reeling from her discovery, Emma avoids Gavin for almost a week until he can no longer stand the silence and is able to convince her to go on a business trip with him to Florida. She agrees to go because he promises to answer all of her questions about Ashley. Their relationship is strained by the demons of Gavin’s past. While he is able to clear up many of her concerns, Emma is still cautious as she has not had much luck in the relationship department. Her last boyfriend was verbally and physically abusive and with Gavin’s dominant personality and his need for rough sex, Emma is questioning whether she is about to fall in the same relationship trap.



Emma can’t deny that the chemistry between her and Gavin is like nothing she has ever felt before but there’s also Cooper Kingsley to think about. Gavin’s younger brother has become to mean a lot to Emma and he’s made no secret about his feelings for her. So Emma is torn between two equally handsome and charming Kingsley men.

She will have to make a choice between the two brothers and when that happens will the Kingsley brothers’ relationship be strong enough to survive?



There’s a ton of decadent steam to keep readers satisfied during the chilly autumn nights in this one ladies!!

Here are my overall ratings on the book:
