Description from the publisher:



Agent: Kennedy Barnes
Target: Phoenix Ash
Crimes: Computer Hacker, Money Launderer, Heartbreaker
Mission: Get close and survive


After living her life in the shadows as the daughter of a congressman’s secret affair, Kennedy Barnes joins ‘Project Greenlight’ - a clandestine intelligence organization. She’s out to prove she’s more than her father’s dirty secret.


One of her first assignments is simple. Get close to Phoenix Ash, collect enough evidence to put him away for life, and get out unscathed.


Phoenix Ash is a world renowned hacker. He’s pulled off some of the biggest heists in modern history, but never leaves a trace. He knows people are after him and that every day may be his last, but when he meets Kennedy Barnes everything changes.


Lines are blurred and secrets are exposed as Phoenix and Kennedy both discover they do have a weakness - for each other.



This is a STANDALONE novel, but is interconnected with Dirty Work, which is now available.  I have not read Dirty Work, so I can attest with confidence that it does stand on its own.


If you’ve followed my reviews for any length of time, you will know that I love romance novels.  I sincerely want EVERYONE to get their HEA.  What you may not know is that I also love spy and mystery novels.  My first chapter books were the Nancy Drew series – about as gentle a spy as you can get, but I still crave that edge of mystery.


DIRTY SECRET gives me both – oh-em-gee, it’s like cheesecake AND brownies with just enough chocolate covered strawberries (aka sexy time) to keep me squirming in my seat when I wasn’t bouncing on the edge of that seat to see what would happen next!


Loved the story.  Loved the characters.  Loved the writing.  This will be a book that I come back to read again and again (and I rarely do that!)


Note:  while I was given this book as a gifted copy, my opinions are my own and are given freely.
