REVIEW – TORRID LITTLE AFFAIR (Forbidden Desires #3) by Kendall Ryan


The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.

My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…

But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.

Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?

I have a feeling those might do the trick.

This is book three in the Forbidden Desires series, and while it can be read as a standalone, it’s recommended you start with Dirty Little Secret.

Something about this woman—the feel of her, the taste of her, just her general presence—made me want to know her. To have her completely as my own.



Cooper is the youngest of the Kingsley brothers and the one with the biggest heart. In the previous book, his heart had been broken when Emma chose his older brother Gavin over him. So Cooper left Boston to get away for a while and has been losing himself to alcohol and a different woman every night, but months later he still hasn’t gotten over the rejection. After nearly six months he’s being summoned back by his older brother Quinn, who threatens to cut him off if he doesn’t return to Boston.



Cooper’s pleasantly surprised when he meets the new executive assistant on his first day back in the office. He mistakenly thinks that she is a gift to him from his brother and becomes an HR nightmare when he propositions Corinne right in his office. He realizes his error in judgment when she runs out of his office in tears. But what does he do the next time they’re together? He offers to help her with her issues with physical intimacy after she tells him about her hangup.



I really liked Cooper in the previous books but he lacked finesse and charisma in his story. His desperation made him unattractive to me and the plot had so many holes in it that I struggled to get through the story. My love for the author is what kept me invested until the end and although this was my least favorite book so far in this series, it did improve a bit later on.

Here are my overall ratings on the book:

Hero: 3
Heroine: 3
Plot: 2.5
Angst: 3
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 3
