The start to a sexy new series from New York Times bestselling author, Kendall Ryan…

She’s much too innocent for me, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting the sweet, young librarian. I’m dominating and possessive, and my control streak runs a mile wide.

The way she looks at me—like I’m one of the heroes in the books she loves, like I’m broken, and she wants to be the one to piece me back together—it only complicates things further. I’m nobody’s hero.

But there’s no denying my tragic past reads like one of her favorite literary classics. It’s raw. Visceral. Captivating. And together, we’re a perfect mess.

How can I resist when the sexual sparks zapping between us set me on fire? The need to control, and claim her force my walls to come tumbling down, but when she learns about my dirty little secret, will my world come crashing down with it?




Wow! I love this side of Kendall Ryan!

It was all the things! Emotional, sexy, dramatic, and hot as hell. Trust me, you want to get your grabby hands on this one as soon as it releases!

Here’s the breakdown:

A lonely librarian develops a secret crush on the businessman she sees in the coffee shop daily. Emma, is the quintessential stereotype of a librarian. She meek, quiet, and submissive. In an attempt to fill an emotional and sexual void in her life, she decides to take make a bold move and approach her crush. What she finds when she makes the visit to his offices changes her life in ways she never anticipated. It’s a dirty, sexy, and thrilling ride. Strap in folks!

Here’s what I loved:

The storyline is naughty and fun. Sexy librarian meets sexier business mogul. Yep, I’m all for that hotness! Throw in a side of mystery, intrigue, and unexpected competition and you have a winner folks. The sheer fact that it’s so far outside of Emma’s expectation, made this a very entertaining read. She thought she’d breeze into Gavin’s office and find out more information about him, but ends up having to make a totally unexpected decision if she wants to remain close to him.

The characters, both main and secondary are beyond intriguing. Gavin and his brothers Cooper and Quinn are sexy, mysterious, and demand attention. They have my undivided attention!

The writing and setup is PERFECT! This story took me back to me very first Kendall Ryan read. I’ve loved her lighter books, but the dark and mysterious vibe of this one sings to me. It’s amazing and I’ve been suck into this universe I don’t want to leave. Once you meet Gavin, Cooper, and Quinn, you’ll be sucked in too.

Overall, this sexy little book features an enigmatic alpha-hole that will make you weak in the knees. He’s my kinda guy. I loved every minute and CANNOT wait for more. Two huge thumbs up!
