Review | Dirty Little Promise by Kendall Ryan

Dirty Little Promise

by Kendall Ryan


The secret I’d discovered about sexy billionaire Gavin Kingsley was so big, so haunting wasn’t something I could overcome. I had a decision to make—hear him out and see where things went, or turn to his brother Cooper, who I was fairly certain was in love with me. But something dark inside of Gavin called to something dark inside of me. And I wasn’t willing to just walk away—not yet anyway.

This is the conclusion to Emma Bell’s epic love affair with the alpha and enigmatic Kingsley brothers. Secrets will be exposed, sides will be chosen, and nothing will ever be the same.



Dirty Little Promise is the conclusion to Gavin Kingsley and Emma Bell’s intense and heated romance. If you thought the precursor Dirty Little Secret was fierce in its passion and excitement, Dirty Little Promise is more fervent, the chemistry stronger and its impact more emotionally charged.

Once again, Kendall Ryan delivers an epic love story with more delicious angst and fulfilling suspense, and every scene is hotter and bolder and sexier.

My heart was so full, so full of her, of her love, I felt like anything was possible. She made me strong and brave and whole. And I knew with certainty I’d love her until my dying breath.

Emma Bell, modest, quiet and respectable, is reeling in shock after learning Gavin Kingsley’s dark and dirty secrets. She finds herself longing for the enigmatic billionaire, but she’s also torn and uncertain whether she can trust the man she continues falling for.

In every aspect, Gavin Kingsley is dominant; he is demanding and controlling, while also being fair within reason. When he is certain about wanting something or someone, he is determined to have it. And what he wants is Emma Bell, his sensual and seductive librarian.

While Gavin manages to clear some of Emma’s unease by answering her difficult questions about Ashley, Emma is still cautious. Her experience with relationships is limited, her ex-boyfriend having been physically and verbally abusive. With Gavin’s domineering personality and incessant need for rough sex, Emma is understandably concerned if she is about to enter a similar relationship.

Even though Emma knows she wants Gavin, there’s still Cooper, the youngest Kingsley to consider. She’s caught between two equally handsome and persistent figures, but she can only have one. Cooper is sweet and gentle, soft compared to Gavin’s rough edges. And while my heart broke for Cooper, I’m keen to have him meet his match in Torrid Little Affair.

Emma’s more confident, assertive and self-assured. She’s shifted from quiet librarian to someone more seductive and submissive who brings out Gavin’s softer, more attentive and tender side. It takes someone with patience and determination to overcome the horrifying experiences she’s been through, making her awe-inspiring and brave.
