Cliff-hanger
Dirty Little Secret (Forbidden Desires Book 1) - Kendall Ryan

Dirty Little Secret by Kendall Ryan is an entertaining contemporary romance.  Ms. Ryan has delivered a book that is well-written.  It is in first person, alternating point of view format, not my favorite.  Gavin is part owner of an escort service.  Emma is a librarian that has been fascinated with Gavin since she first saw him at a coffee shop.  Their story is a twisted, emotional rollercoaster.  There is plenty of drama, angst and sex.  My least favorite part of this story is, yes, the dreaded cliff-hanger.  I hate cliff-hangers and would have never read this if I had known ahead of time.  Dirty Little Secret is book 1 of the Forbidden Desires Series.  This is not a complete book and does end in a cliff-hanger.  I'm glad I got this free through bookfunnel, I'd have been even more upset if I had actually paid for it.

I won't be reading any of the other books in the series.

 

I voluntarily read a complimentary copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The author put quotes above the chapters and they were reminders.

First in Miracle Springs
The Secret Book & Scone Society - Ellery Adams

Nora has been in the hospital for a very long time healing from burns she sustained in an accident. She is being cared for by a British sounding nurse who brings her books to read to help her heal through the mess her life has become. After she is released from the hospital she sells all that she has left and moves to Miracle Springs and starts over as a bookseller. The people come and talk with her and she helps them find books that will help them through what is happening in their lives. She also notes when people buy books what they are reading and the theme of the books. She is known in the town as a bibliotherapist. One day while sitting in the park, a man comes up and starts talking with her and when he learns that she is the bookstore owner, he asks for her help. She sends him to Hester, the local baker, who makes comfort scones and tells him to come back to her store and she will try to help him. Before he can return, he is pushed in front of a train and dies. The local sheriff, known as Sheriff Toad, rules it a suicide. Nora, Hester, Estella (a hairdresser) and June (an employee at the spa) all feel that this is wrong and start to work together to find out what really happened to the man and make sure there isn't a miscarriage of justice. 

 

As they work on the mystery, they tell their stories (secrets) to each other and share books and scones. 

 

I started out listening to the book, but because I had to rerun it a few times and ran out of time, I had to borrow the actual book in order to finish the story. 

 

It was a really interesting story and I really enjoyed the growth of the women with each other and singly.

Secret Friends (#JustFriends Book 5) - Shawn-Marie Cole

I received this book for free through LibraryThing’s Member Giveaways.

 

This was a super quick read that I enjoyed. It’s a pretty straight forward romance, nothing I haven’t already seen before. That being said, I still really liked this. Towards the end I was worried that I wouldn’t like the ending, but thankfully I did like it.

 

Overall, if you’re looking for a quick contemporary romance check out this book. I haven’t read the others in this series but if they are anything like this book, they should be just as good.
