Dirty Little Secret - A steamy contemporary romance.

Dirty Little Secret is a steamy contemporary romance novel featuring Emma, a librarian, and two brothers, Gavin and Cooper. For months, Emma has admired Gavin at a local coffee shop and although she's never spoken to him, he features prominently in her fantasies. That all changes when he leaves behind his business card, and she feels certain that he wants her to contact him. It turns out that Gavin and his equally hot brothers own an elite escort service. Emma's curiosity gets the best of her and she ends up having an interview with Gavin, even though she has no intention of becoming an escort. The chemistry between them is off the charts and he convinces her to become an escort but only for him and Cooper. Emma agrees and she quickly becomes entangled in the brothers' lives. Cooper is the sweeter of the two, but she's inexplicably drawn to Gavin, and they have some intense encounters on their "dates." Just as she and Gavin become closer, Emma discovers something suspicious from his past, and just like that the story ends. Dirty Little Secret is book one of a series so you have to read the next book to find out what happens. I was drawn into this story immediately and found the characters interesting, and mostly likable, even though Gavin has a gruff exterior. However, my interest waned toward the end of the book, and I was especially disappointed in the cliffhanger. If you enjoy steamy contemporary romance novels and don't mind investing in a series, you may like Dirty Little Secret.
