Noah Cordero is a modern-day cowboy who loves three things: ranching, his younger sister, and his step-father. John Cordero groomed Noah to take over the Montana spread where he learned to ride and work the land. But when John unexpectedly dies, he leaves half the ranch to a woman Noah doesn’t even know.

Roxy shares Noah’s last name, but not his blood. Estranged from her father, haunted by regrets, and eager to escape her notorious mother’s past, she is forced to fulfill her father’s last wishes. Inheriting means sharing a home with infuriating, challenging, and oh-so-tempting Noah. But John didn’t just make her owner of his ranch and guardian to her sister, his hidden sideline is her worst nightmare—she’s the new owner of the notorious Nevada brothel called Wild Rose Ranch where she grew up.

As their strictly business relationship starts to turn to true love, Roxy begins to wonder, what will happen when Noah discovers her dirty little secret?

There is nothing better then falling into a book and become lost! That's just what happened with me and this new book, new series by Jennifer Ryan.

I started reading it when I put my nephew down for a nap. He wasn't feeling good so I laid him in my bed then couldn't leave him so I grabbed my kindle. A hour and half later and I was almost done with Dirty Little Secret. 

I'm not even sure how that happened. The older I get the slower I read. My mind is always on what I need to do next which makes it hard to be in the here and now. But with Dirty Little Secret I didn't have that issues. I just started reading and kept going. 

One of the things I love a Jennifer Ryan's books is her ability to make you feel when you read her books. You heart will break for what Roxy has gone though. No one, especially a child should have to deal with what Roxy dealt with. Her childhood was nothing but abuse and it was both her parents fault. 

It's one of those times that I want so badly to tell you more but feel you truly need to read it on your own to understand everything. I don't want to take a chance ruining anything for anyone. Just believe when I say that this one is well worth the time it takes to read it. 

I really enjoyed Noah and felt for the most part he was a great guy. He did faultier one with Roxy but made up for it. He wanted so badly for her to be happy and would do anything he could to make that happen. Noah's sister is a great character too. I also enjoyed Roxy's sisters and can't wait to learn more about them.  

Dirty Little Secret's is a wonderful story that will at times pull at your heart strings and make you want to cry and then on the other hand your pissed off at the idiots around. This is a perfect start to a new series and it makes me want more! 

If you've read Dirty Little Secrets or any other books by Jennifer Ryan I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
