“Sexy and fun with a delicious hockey hero, DIRTY SECRET is great for fans of Elle Kennedy, Toni Aleo, and Sawyer Bennett. I devoured this book!” -NYTimes Bestseller Lexi Ryan

In my defense, I didn’t know she was his sister

This team hates me. Something about my chronic case of resting prick face and that thing with the captain when the season started.

My fist, his jaw. Yeah, we go back and not in a good way. 

Coach says no more “confrontational BS” or I don’t play at all. And that’s a hit my career in the NHL can’t take. 

So the plan is simple. Keep my head down and finish out my contract with my fists checked.

There’s just one problem. 

Allie. The girl from Vancouver eight months ago. The one with the sexy, shy, and sinfully bold smile and the sweetest, wettest mouth I ever tasted. The girl who blew my mind and then blew out of my life without giving me her number. 

Turns out she’s the captain’s little sister. 

And even though my career depends on it… I can’t stay away from her.

Absolutely loved this one!

It’s the start of a new series (Slayers Hockey) though the heroine is the sister of Dirty Secret ‘s Greg, but you don’t have to have read his story to enjoy this one. Be warned, though–once you start reading about the guys on this team (Chicago Slayers hockey) you’re not going to want to stop!

Natalie and Vaughn’s story was, in a word, amazing. I mean, the one night stand who turns out to be your teammate’s little sister should be old and tired by now. So should the grumpy hero with the heart of gold who turns to mush for kids–and the heroine. I mean, how many forbidden/secret romances do we need? The answer is apparently as many as can be written like this one, because all the tropes feel fresh and new here with Ms Kelly’s Dirty Secret. I mean, even when I (and they) knew that it was the king of all bad ideas for the two of them to be together, they were so, so good together that I couldn’t even fault them for it.

And hot. I mean, H-O-T kind of hot.

I am not kidding, I had actual tears in my eyes during the breakup/black moment. They may or may not have fallen; I refuse to either confirm or deny. It hurt me when they were hurting.

And then we get to the ending–amazing! Ms Kelly cannot possibly write this series fast enough for me!

Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A
