Sofie Callahan has just returned to her hometown with a secret. Connor Burke has also just returned to that same hometown for a one month break from touring with his band... he and his band of brothers comprise the world famous Dirty B. The former teenage sweethearts, separated by one secret and a whole lot of things left unsaid, make for one tumultuous and rocky reunion now two years later. Emma Hart's Dirty Secret is what happens when a rock star romance meets a second chance romance with one dirty little secret thrown into the mix. Entertaining and as sweet as it is dramatic, Dirty Secret is the perfect sort of contemporary romance readers will devour.

This was my first Emma Hart book and I really enjoyed her writing. The only exception to that was my disconnect with the characters' southern drawl. It might just be a matter of personal taste, but as a New Yorker, I was consistently taken out of the story with the excessive use of the "ya'lls" and the "ain'ts" used in the dialogue and inner monologue. I can't decide if I felt like it was overused or if it's just my Yankee ear repelling the use of the words, but either way, it gave me pause. With that said, it didn't discount how much I enjoyed Hart's writing. The voice she gave to each of her characters felt very consistent with their personalities. With the exception of the twang, the dialogue felt very natural and real.

I'm a serious lover of angst. I crave a story where angst and tension drive the plot. While there is no shortage of tension and drama in this volatile relationship, the dual points of view don't leave much room for angsty misunderstanding. I missed that. You always know precisely what each character is thinking and what they want.

There's nothing like an Emma Hart book. She writes stories that take me to my happy place. It's as if I'm being enveloped in a fluffy cloud or being treated to a decadent piece of dark chocolate cake. The tales she weaves are always solid, the writing fluid and seamless, the characters completely lovable and addictive. Dirty Secret was no different. It was thoroughly enjoyable, keeping me engaged and enticed from the first to the last page. A one sitting, devour it read.

Sophie Callahan has a secret. A deep, dark but achingly sweet secret. Two and a half years ago, she left town, leaving behind the love of her life and all she’s ever known. But as things go, seasons pass, and life moves on. With her father's recent passing, Sophie makes a hard choice, deciding to come back home with her precious secret in tow.

Connor Burke, a rock star heartthrob, is loved by the masses. With Dirty B's current tour over, he's ready to get back home and take a much needed break. But home is where heartbreak and yearning reside. It's where memories, both beautiful and hauntingly painful, plague his thoughts. Two and a half years ago the girl of his dreams up and vanished, without a word or explanation. And each day since has been agonizing, questions filtering through his mind like bombs in a war zone. What went wrong? Where did she go? Why did she run?

Sophie knows that Dirty B—Connors band—will back in town soon. She knows that they always head home for a 3 month stretch. She also realizes she's not going to be able to avoid and hide for much longer. And as hard as that reality is, she feels it’s finally time to take responsibility for her actions and pay the piper so to speak.

Frustrating h!! I haven't finished reading this book but I have a huge problem with couples that don't respect each other. I don't understand how you can love someone and call them every name in the book. Without respect there is nothing and Sofie is the epitomy of an immature selfish brat!! She is the one that made the mistakes and Conner is the one having to constantly apologize?!? What is wrong with this picture? I seriously wanted to slap that B**** or throw my kindle against the wall more times than I'd like through 72% of the book she was so infuriating and immature. She calls him an a*hole throughout most of the book - what's up with that?!?!? I'm with one of the reviewers who said he should have ended up with some who deserved him.

I am a sucker for romance which involve a child but the plot for this book is so sad (disrespect in a relationship is unacceptable!) and unwarranted, seriously have to wonder about the author...
The writing is good and the characters well developed which is why I didn't rate this book one star but the plot sucked. As difficult as it is to read, I'll finish the book because apparently there is a HEA but if I had to do it over again I would not buy this book.

I love Emma hart. I really do love her. She's an amazing talented writer and I'm surprised with how I felt for this book because I usually love her books. Anyways. I'm going to keep my review short and simple....
Her writing in itself was good....like I said Emma hart is talented and will continue to be....but what I hated about this book is I felt like nothing really happened.
It felt repetative....the h/h are always going back and forth and their inner though out the book consist of the same thing. That got annoying quickly for me ....and a few times I wanted to slap both the main characters. Especially sofie!! I did not like her at all...I got through the whole book still not liking her. The worst flaw in a character is selfiahness......and she was selfish to a degree I didn't know existed. Her reasons for doing what she did are not undeeatandable. I could never so something like that.....it's insane!!! Then there's Collin. I liked him...but....it's hate that he's always holding back....trying to do things to please sofie when in all reality she didn't deserve it. She deserved no compassion....God bless his soul tho...it's felt like sofie did nothing to get back in his good graces.
The book just dragged. ..it's kept waiting for something and nothing other than I want her...but I shouldn't want her" kept Goin on....it got annoying.
Hey that's just my opinion. I'm out numbered here...lol. everyone else loved the book..and that's good for u......MI will be reading more Emma hart books because I still love her. I didn't like this book but that's just this book..there's other works she's written that I've lov3d.
