Review – DIRTIEST SECRET by J Kenner

Wow! Dirtiest Secret was my first J Kenner book, it definitely won’t be my last.



It was wrong for us to be together, but it was even harder to be apart.

The memory of Dallas Sykes burns inside of me.

Everyone knows him as a notorious playboy, a man for whom women and money are no object. But to me, he’s still the one man I desperately crave—yet the one I can never have.

Dallas knows me better than anyone else. We bear the same scars, the same darkness in our past. I thought I could move on by staying away, but now that we’re drawn together once more, I can’t fight the force of our attraction or the temptation to make him mine.

We’ve tried to maintain control, not letting ourselves give in to desire. And for so long we’ve told ourselves no—but now it’s finally time to say yes.

Dirtiest Secret is intended for mature audiences.


I’ve been wanting to read J Kenner for a while now, so this new series was the perfect time to dive into my very first one, and oh my, I was not disappointed. Far from it in fact. Dirtiest Secret was the hottest book I have read in a very long time, and I loved the taboo aspect to it. In all honesty, I loved every aspect to the book. The plot, the writing, the characters, the intense heat, the passion, the heartbreak…I loved it all.

I just can’t resist a book with a taboo storyline, and Dirtiest Secret is very taboo. So. Damn. Sexy. It has a dark edge, the characters are scarred, and you might not agree with what they do, but man, the attraction, the pain, the love, I could feel it all in huge bursting waves. Everything these characters went through, it was as though I as the reader went through it too.

I’ve already used the word “intense” but that’s exactly what this book: a seriously intense and addictive ride. I am in desperate need for both the next books in this series, which release later in the year, so I can find out what happens next with Dallas and Jane. This is one of those storylines where if every book in the series was already out, I would sit and binge-read the entire thing from beginning to end. It was just that good!! Bring on Hottest Mess in July!
