Hello lovelies and Happy Monday! Time for another Goodreads Monday which is a weekly meme by Lauren’s Page Turners’ blog!

To participate, just choose a random book from your Goodreads TBR and show it off. For this meme, I’ll be focusing on a random book that I don’t own (hardcopy or ebooks) on my Goodreads “want-to-read” page.

What’s sexier than a bad boy? A bad ass man who’s got his shit together. Max Alexander is nearing thirty-five. He’s built a successful company, and he’s conquered the professional world, but he’s never been lucky in love. Focusing so much time on his business and raising his daughter, adulting has come at the expense of his personal life. His social skills are shit, his patience is shot, and at times, his temper runs hot. The last thing he has time for is the recently single, too gorgeous for her own good young woman he hires to take care of his little girl. She’s a distraction he doesn’t need, and besides, there’s no way she’d be interested. But you know what they say about assumptions?

I really like Kendall Ryan’s writing style and enjoyed the first two books of this series so of course I added this on my Goodreads TBR. But… like always, I sort of forgot about it since I add books to my TBR on a daily basis. Well, I’m really hoping I can get to this soon. I get into different reading moods and right now is perfect since I’ve been reading a lot of romance and NA books.

Have you read this book? Did you love it or hate it? Let me know in the comments!

Have a wonderful reading week loves!

Dirty secrets. We all have them. We guard them fiercely, protecting them like a mother does a precious newborn infant, cradled to her chest, away from the world’s prying eyes. Yet those dark, forbidden desires we crave won’t stay hidden for long. They have a way of coming out — usually at the most inopportune time. 

I knew all that, and yet… I watched them from a distance, knowing they’d be perfect together. They were two halves of the same whole. He was broken beyond repair. She was so familiar, reminding him of something he desperately wanted to fix. I knew she’d be perfect for him.

Dirty Little Secret (Forbidden Desires #1)

Kendall Ryan

Expected publication: September 14th 2017 by Kendall Ryan

She’s much too innocent for me, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting the sweet, young librarian. I’m dominating and possessive, and my control streak runs a mile wide.

The way she looks at me—like I’m one of the heroes in the books she loves, like I’m broken, and she wants to be the one to piece me back together—it only complicates things further. I’m nobody’s hero.

But there’s no denying my tragic past reads like one of her favorite literary classics. It’s raw. Visceral. Captivating. And together, we’re a perfect mess.

How can I resist when the sexual sparks zapping between us set me on fire? The need to control, and claim her force my walls to come tumbling down, but when she learns about my dirty little secret, will my world come crashing down with it?

The story continues in Dirty Little Promise, releasing October 30.

I’ve read two books from Kendall Ryan’s Roommate Series and really enjoyed them. Their fun, sexy, and guilty pleasure reads. I’m more than halfway down with this one and really loving it!

Sincerely Karen Jo
