My best friend’s little sister.
That’s all I’m supposed to see when I look at Olivia.

Her brother and I have been best friends for years, and he doesn’t want me so much as glancing in her direction. I can’t blame him -- not when I’ve screwed every girl in a fifty-mile radius.

But she’s another matter. I’ve caught the little glances she’s been sen

This was a great steamy read with the best friend's little sister. I found the H to be perfectly flawed and I loved reading through his thought process and seeing how he changed along the way. I found Olivia to be a sweet little sister of his best friend and I adored her personality and her zest for archives. Their story is a quick easy read packed with steam and angst

Dirty Little Secret is a hot and steamy ride, so be prepared. As always Vivian does an excellent job of creating a story that keeps you entertained with the characters and how their journey unfolds.

Here we have Aiden, a playboy, who just so happens to be the best friend of Grayson from Dirty Little Heart. But he goes down a bad road when he receives some devastating news. Here he finds himself working with Gray's sister Olivia. He has been trying to resist starting something with her

Aiden had a less than idyllic childhood which affects his relationships with everyone in his life. He has no interest in love or relationships and the only person that he has allowed close is his best friend Grayson. Aiden is not about to jeopardize his relationship with him even if his sister inspires thoughts and feelings that he has never had for another woman.

Olivia has been attracted to her brother’s best friend Aiden for years but never thought he felt the same way. When they f

4.5 ✨✨✨

This was a sweet and steamy stormy about Aiden and Olivia (who’s his best friends sister). These two have always had a small fire between them but never acted on it cause they didn’t want Olivias brother to kill them but after they are in each other’s orbit as adults all bets are off and the small spark turns into a burning fire no holds barred.

I voluntarily reviewed a advanced readers copy of this book

I love these secrets, let's give a try kind of relationships on top of it being by one of my favorite go to authors. What more can you ask for? It's a win win situation. Aiden, the playboy is best friends with beautiful Olivia's brother. What could possibly go wrong? I really enjoyed watching their relationship blossom.

🔥😈 💖 Dirty Little Secret indeed 💖 😈🔥

Ms. Wood has definitely put the dirty in Little Secret, and it’s roasting hot between those pages!
After reading Dirty Little Heart, and meeting Grayson’s sister and best friend, I was more than looking forward to Olivia and Aiden’s book, and I was not disappointed! Dirty Little Secret is very much a standalone, but this book pretty much runs concurrently with Heart so it’s a bonus to know who the other characters are and where they fit within the

Loved that Aiden and Olivia have their own story in Dirty Little Secret by Vivian Wood. Their story is filled with passion, drama and heartache that will pull you in from beginning to end. Aiden always finds himself in trouble with his irresponsible affairs with women, as he loves them and leaves them. Now with his latest stunt finds he himself on the outs with his boss. All through his young life growing up he has suffered at the hands of his father who beat and tormented him. While at his moth ...more

Hot!! Steamy, angsty goodness!

Aiden, playboy best friend of Grayson from Dirty Little Heart, is much more than the smirking ladies man we saw in DLH. He discovers some devastating news from his mother on her deathbed. This sends Aiden down a self-destructive path that leads to him working in the same household as Olivia, Gray's baby sister. And the one woman who is completely off limits to him. Who he has been resisting his draw to for years.

Olivia is stunned to see Aiden at her new

I couldn’t wait to read Aidens and Olivias story! Their connection was felt while reading Graysons story and I knew that these two were destined to have an off the charts chemistry if only they could get around the fact that Olivias brother is Aidens best friend!

Getting to know Aiden and see what he has endured in life really had my heart aching for him! Through it all he is still a good man and the one person who has always been by his side is his best friend Aiden and from time to time Grays

I’m so happy that Aiden and Olivia finally got their story. These two are a force to be reckoned with. Aiden has known Olivia forever since meeting his best friend Grayson. She’s always been off limits, especially the first time Grayson catches Aiden checking her out. Olivia’s been crushing on Aiden like forever and now that she’s all grown up and when they find themselves years later, the attraction they both felt for each other is still there and amped up like 200%.

Dirty Little Secret is Aiden and Olivia's story. I'm so happy they got their own story, after first meeting them in Dirty Little Heart.

Aiden, is on a mission to find out if there is any truth to the secret his mother confessed to him. Having a spare two months, he takes a job at the Morgan estate where he hopes to find the answers he is looking for. What he finds first is the girl who is off limits. Why? Because she is his best friends little sister.

I loved reading this. Even though it is young adult romance, it is realistic, mature and fascinating. The main characters Olivia and Aiden have great personalities. They are reasonable, down-to-earth, honest and trustworthy. i felt bad about the way they suffered growing up. The positive thing was they still turned into decent human beings. I enjoyed how each scene in the story moved effortlessly from one to another. I was surprised that I was so in tune with their relationship, their desires, t ...more

I absolutely loved Aiden and Olivia. I was blown away with all that Aiden went through growing up. I thought Grayson had it bad. It was nothing compared to Aiden. The connection Olivia and Aiden have was so intense. She really saw who he was deep down and wanted to help him anyway she could. Both have been attracted to one another for years and because of his friendship with Olivia's brother Grayson neither voiced or acted on the attraction. Until now.

I enjoyed reading Vivian’s first book in the “series” - Dirty Little Heart, so I was excited to read Dirty Little Secret! It did not disappoint; fun, flirty, sexy and filled with a hint of mystery! I did not want the book to end!!

Aiden was a player but after coming back from some time off, he was worse than ever. After a few to many complaints to his boss, Aiden was put on leave until he could get himself together.

Finding himself with a bunch of time, he decided he needed answers to

From Vivian Woods's mind to our eyes, this book has her passionate style, character flair, and the bazillions of frustrating but oh so darn entertaining bits -o- drama weaved into Oliva and Aidens story so well, I might as well have been right there with them!
What feels wrong can also feel oh so right. While Aiden and Oliva might both think along those lines, Aiden won't touch the forbidden fruit that is Oliva, for she is his best friend's sister. O

5⭐Read all the way, brilliant riveting and a hot intense passion. It’s a very well written story of a young woman who knows what she wants and goes all out to get it despite being brought up by her overbearing protective brother. The storyline flows seamlessly from start to finish sucking you in. Aiden is Graysons best friend who has been around and in Olivias life forever ( Graysons story was Dirty Little Heart) Aiden is also know to be a womaniser but this was something of a facade disguising ...more

Geez, one more reason to despise and not trust people with big money! I honestly hated Carter's mother as bad as Aiden's dad ( and he wasn't even human). I loved
the letter from "Tom"! It was a gesture, but at least he explained some things. When all is said and done, I finally and honestly believe Olivia played Aiden well , virgin or not. She knew how to reel him in with her ultimatum! Checkmate! Gray was childish when he fought with Aiden and then ignorantly divulged a secret! Grrr... Gray had

A best friend's sister romance. Aiden's lost his mother, and he is devastated. Not by her death, but by her deathbed confession. And in his pursuit of truth, he runs into Olivia, younger sister of his best friend, Grayson. Aiden knows Grayson will never approve of him with Olivia-he needs his best friend more than he needs a woman. I loved Aiden's struggle with his feelings for Olivia. Aidan has a lot to deal with, and Olivia tempts him more than he can resist. I enjoyed the plot & subplot i ...more

This story is the second in the series and runs along with the timeline for book 1. I liked the story line, the whole unrequited love thing is a favourite of mine, so I was really excited to get into it. I really enjoyed Aiden and Olivia together. They burned hot, and also at times, were quite sweet towards one another.

I loved Aiden's possessiveness! I can't help it, but possessive guys who get all growly and mad when another man is around their girl is total swoon material

The story of Olivia and Aiden is hard to put down. They have know each other all their lives. Aiden is Olivia's brother best friend. At first she was the annoying little girl but things change.

Aiden finds out that the man who he called his father is not his father. He goes to work on an estate after being told leave his job and get some help. Aiden is known for having a lot of women in his bed and has been told NOT TO GO NEAR OLIVIA. SHE IS OFF LIMITS.

I enjoyed this best friend's sister romance. I loved the chemistry between Aiden and Olivia. The tension is easy to feel because of their sizzling attraction that honestly felt like a powder keg that just needed one single spark to set off one giant exlosion of heat and emotions.

Aiden and Olivia’s story is about overcoming problems and about romance.
Problems such as that their growing affection is forbidden because Olivia is the little sister of Aiden's best friend ...
Problems such as family secrets coming to light ...
It is highly emotional to read about the tenderness and fierceness of their feelings, about the stealthiness and the twisted and contradictory emotions of their forbidden relationship. And it’s very emotional to read about their miserable
