3.5 stars (rounded up)
I have read nearly every book Ms. Ryan has written over the years, “The McBrides” series being my favorite. I think she has another hit on her hands for readers who love a Harlequin like romance and drama.
“Dirty Little Secret” is the perfect title to go with this storyline. Reputations are a hard thing to overcome. The judgements, the assumptions, the cruelty.
This is a sweet, yet sexy read with lovable characters, Noah and Roxy, who know who they are, know what they want, ...more

These two had an amazing romance full of thought provoking moments along with some swoon worthy ones.
Roxy didn't have an easy go of life but she never let that stop her from putting her best foot forward and maki ...more
Roxy was amazing. Strong, courageous, forgiving and a heart of gold, I flat out loved the character Ryan created in Roxy. She took and faced each circumstance that came her way and still managed to stay positive. When her father throws more responsibility at her, she took it on in spades…and added a few extra hard cases ...more
Dirty Little Secret is the first book in the newest series of Jennifer Ryan. I absolutely adore this author and even though her previous series I struggled with at times, this book was AMAZING. I just didn't want to put this one down and I easily breezed through it like I have in many of Jennif ...more
First Date: Noah Cordero and is teenage sister thought of John Cordero as their father, even though DNA would state otherwise. When John unexpectedly dies it surprises them to learn that John had a biological daughter, and he has left half of the ranch to her. From the onset Ryan pulled me in. None are related, but a family they must form and the terms of the will fan the chemistry that already exists between Noah and Roxy. I am not a fan of stories involving ...more

A sexy and unexpected read that had me devouring is page by page
Jennifer Ryan takes readers to the Wild Rose Ranch in this story where the men are swoony and the women are scandalous! Let me be the first to say that this book was totally unexpected for me. I read the blurb but decided (prior to reading) that it was going to be a fluffy book with little heat. Boy was I wrong! This book is downright sexy! And the secrets that are kept h ...more

This was a really great story about betrayal, redemption and secrets that could threaten the relationship that is blooming between Noah and Roxy. Noah knows that Roxy is definitely hiding something. When he learns what it ...more
And omg it made me so mad. ARGhhhhhh those close minded inbred townsfolk. I wanted to hit them all! I mean hello! Just cos someones mum is a prostitute does not make her one! Just cos she is pretty she should be one? Right, cos if she was ugly then she would not have followed her mum. I mean anyone growing up like that might think that maybe they could do something else ...more
Fortunately this was the former!
Roxy is a bit of a special snowflake in that she's young (25?) but a pro at horse training and breeding, designing phone crap, doing paperwork, barrel racing, and always knows the right answer.
She had no faults really, which made her seem kinda super human but I still liked her 'take charge' character.
I guess the drawback to being her was the way she grew up, with a manipulative, dead beat ...more
I adored Roxy and her ability to pull up her bootstraps and take on the world. She had to grow up way too quickly and learn to d ...more
There is nothing better then falling into a book and become lost! That's just what happened with me and this new book, new series by Jennifer Ryan.
I started reading it when I put my nephew down for a nap. He wasn't feeling good so I laid him in my bed then couldn't leave him so I grabbed my kindle. A hour and half later and I was almost done with Dirty Little Secret.
I'm not even sure how that happened. The older I ...more
“When I kiss you, you hesitate for a split second, and then it’s like you give yourself permission to give in, let go, and you fall into me. It’s sexy as hell and makes me want you even more.”
Jennifer Ryan has, once again, proven why she’s a go-to author for me. Her smart, sexy writing is complemented by incredibly likable characters and interesting stories, and never fails to leave me wanting more.
Dirty Little Secret is no exception. I loved that this series focuses on a family—made, not born, ...more

My mom read Dirty Little Secret before I did and she highly recommend I pick it up because it helped her get out of her reading slump. She devoured it very quickly in two days. While I didn't love Dirty Little Secret as much as my mom did, I did enjoy it overall despite my issues with it.

Loved the characters, loved the story which wasn't the same old story line. Hated the ending. Didn't fit with the rest of the book's theme. Overall a fun quick read and I did enjoy it !
This was probably one of the most memorable quotes for me in Jennifer Ryan’s newest novel, Dirty Little Secret. Roxy Cordero has used that mantra her entire life considering her mother’s profession – a prostitute at the notorious Nevada based Wild Rose Ranch. With a knock out figure like her mother’s, she’s had to fight the stigma that came along with growing up on the WRR and prove to all that she is a fierce, independent woman to be reckoned w ...more
