Received from: Samantha Holt (in exchange for an honest review)
This is the first book in the new Dirty Little Secrets series. There is no cliff-hanger, so I believe they will each stand on their own without need to be read in order.
Jess has a secret. She has moved to London to escape the knowing looks and whispers of her former friends and built a new life, but someone knows her secret and is stalking her. Hunter thinks she has a different secret. He is a private investigator who is also tracking her to find the money she is reported to have stolen. He doesn’t expect his “thief” to be so innocent-looking and sweet. What happens when they meet is an immediate spark of interest that erupts into flames of lust for both of them. Can she trust him with her secret when so many others have failed her? Does he trust the girl of his heart or the client who has accused her? Can he protect her from the stalker or has she earned the threats?
I love both Jess and Hunter. They are strong, intelligent, complex people who each are harboring secrets that can destroy their burgeoning relationship. How they handle each other’s secret is realistic. Ms. Holt creates relatable characters who provide entertainment, passion, and a break from reality.
While I considered this to be a “comfortable” read, meaning that it doesn’t add to the stress of my day with an overabundance of angst, there was an element of mystery and suspense that kept me engaged until the very end. As always, I love this book as much as every one that I have read from Ms. Holt. I look forward to many more stories from her.Read more ›
Jess had a lot of things happen to her, bad things, and because of that she made some really bad choices in life. She ended up a porn star.
Moving on with her life and wanting to do better she gets a new job, new identity, new image as someone was chasing her tail. Bad things could happen to Jess!
Her Uncle believes she has stolen from him so hires someone to find her. His name is Hunter.
I won't divulge anymore of the twists in this story, but I will say that Hunter and Jess attraction was immediate.
I love the bit where Jess says " I like you Hunter" to which Hunter replies " I don't know why Jess, but I can't stop thinking about you"
Hunter was a ladies man but with Jess he had to be honest, he couldn't be any other way.
She doesn't of course know that Hunter is a PI and hired by her Uncle.
When things come out about each others lives Hunter is now in doubt as to if her Uncle has actually told him the truth.
And why did Jess run away, who was she running from?
He finds out from Jess that someone is trying to kill her.
The story does an about turn.
I enjoyed the story a lot, however, it could have picked up pace better/faster in some places as I felt it dragged just a little.
I still thinks it deserves a 4 star though
I feel this book has a great story plot. The story takes a little while to take off and get into the thick of the story. When it does take off it takes off and it great! I also felt that the story repeated it's on that background of the main characters a little too often. This is a well written book other than the repeat at the beginning of the main characters.I loved the description of things from beat sheets to how the room looked, you feel like you are right there see what they are.
Jess is hiding from her past and Hunter is trying to keep from losing his. They both have broke pieces to them. They both have a very strong attraction to each other can they find the right road that will bring them to happiness or will what the have crump!
I am looking forward to reading more from Samantha I think she has a lot of talent.
