Meet the women from Wild Rose Ranch—and the men who want them—in New York Times Bestselling Author Jennifer Ryan’s breathtaking series of romance and scandal . . .
Noah Cordero is a modern-day cowboy who loves three things: ranching, his younger sister, and his step-father. John Cordero groomed Noah to take over the Montana spread where he learned to ride and work the land. But when John unexpectedly dies, he leaves half the ranch to a woman Noah doesn’t even know.
Roxy shares Noah’s last name, but not his blood. Estranged from her father, haunted by regrets, and eager to escape her notorious mother’s past, she is forced to fulfill her father’s last wishes. Inheriting means sharing a home with infuriating, challenging, and oh-so-tempting Noah. But John didn’t just make her owner of his ranch and guardian to her sister, his hidden sideline is her worst nightmare—she’s the new owner of the notorious Nevada brothel called Wild Rose Ranch where she grew up.
As their strictly business relationship starts to turn to true love, Roxy begins to wonder, what will happen when Noah discovers her dirty little secret?
This was my first time reading from Jennifer Ryan and I absolutely loved every bit of Dirty Little Secret. I didn’t know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised as I devoured every page from the beginning to end.
Roxy was everything to me in this book and it was nearly impossible to not fall in love with her character. She has lived a life with painful and tough circumstances, none she could avoid, but she made the most of everything that she had. Also while dealing with a mother who was too selfish and a father too ashamed of his mistakes, which essentially left things in a sore spot with his estranged daughter. She’s such a strong character and fiercely-protective of those she cares about. Roxy was definitely someone you’d always want in your corner.
Noah and Roxy are thrown into a new life together, which neither one of them asked for. But it was definitely one of the best things that could have happened to them. As they learn about one another, trust doesn’t come easy, but eventually, it grows. And from there love happens.
Roxy took on her new role with ease and she was fabulous at it. And she is such a mama bear. Never having a problem speaking her mind.
So much love for the amazing characters that Jennifer has written and eager to learn about the many stories to come. From the plot to the wonderfully written characters, there’s no reason for anyone to not love this one. Dirty Little Secret is a must-read!
This won’t be my last Jennifer Ryan read and I can’t wait to read the rest of the book in this series! Now I’m just wondering whose book is next?
