dirtiest secret

J. Kenner

S.I.N. Series (Book 1)

Release Date: April 19, 2016


Amazon  •  Barnes & Noble

book blurbFrom the New York Times bestselling author of such “racy, sizzling Stark novels” (RT Book Reviews) as Release Me and Say My Name comes a Stark International Novel featuring provocative bad boy Dallas Sykes—the first in a new trilogy in the S.I.N. series.

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.

my review5 Stars

Holy hot mess – I feel like I’ve been sucked down into another J. Kenner vortex of lies and lust. Dirtiest Secret’s plot was filled with a taboo love story and a suspenseful sub plot that leaves you feel desperate for the next installment in the S.I.N series.

And I am absolutely loving it.

The dynamic in the Sykes family was complicated and weird but it some how worked and was understandable. Except for one major aspect – the relationship between Dallas and Jane.  Thrown together as children, they were the closest of friends – soul mates.  They have absolutely no blood connections but technically by law, they are siblings.

However the older they got, the more they fell in love – it could not be helped or avoided.  That is until they had the unspeakable happened to them and it changed everything.

Years later, fate (or someone despicable) unknowingly pushed them back together and even though they are trying to stay away from each other – it is impossible to ignore a connection like these two share.  It’s also impossible to ignore all the secrets they have from one another.

It all makes for an incredible reading experience.

I loved this book.  The excitement and tension seeping from the pages kept me wondering at every turn how the author was going to make this forbidden love acceptable and if Dallas and Jane would ever get their happily ever after they deserve.  I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Definitely start this new series today!
