Dirty Little Promise by Kendall Ryan Review




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.


I’ve read many of Kendall Ryan’s books, and I’ve always enjoyed them. But I haven’t read anything like the Forbidden Desires series from her before, and it totally blew me away. The series has been an absolute thrill to read so far, and without hesitation, I believe this is some of Kendall Ryan’s finest writing to date.

Exceptionally well written and richly developed, Dirty Little Promise was an immensely satisfying, exciting and sexy conclusion to the layered, complex love story that began in Dirty Little Secret. (Click here for my review of Dirty Little Secret.) I didn’t know quite what to expect when I started this series, but I was pulled right into Gavin and Emma’s story from the very first page. Their romance was captivating and enthralling with a completely engrossing intensity that kept me riveted in place as I devoured it. Emma and Gavin’s chemistry was white-hot and this was some of Kendall’s raciest writing ever. Ryan wove a fantastically multi-faceted tale here, thick with heart-thumping intrigue, pulse-racing passion and a hard-fought love story.

Told over the course of two books, I finished the first book, Dirty Little Secret, on a gasp, and I waited anxiously for the conclusion in this book. I loved everything about this story, and the rest of the stories in this series are some of my most highly anticipated reads. Five smooches from me for Dirty Little Promise by Kendall Ryan!
