    Marisela Morales is a woman who knows what she wants, and is wil

    Marisela Morales is a woman who knows what she wants, and is willing to push her brains and body to the max to make things happen. Julie Leto has combined a brilliant plot with believable characters in the first book of her Dirty Series, Dirty Little Secrets.
    Dirty Little Secrets does a fabulous job of playing the right cards, in the right order, to hold a reader’s attention through all the sizzling nuances of the story. Leto has developed a real person with her character, Marisela. Marisela isn’t a random woman dropped into a hardcore world to immediately kick-ass and take names with no qualifying characteristics. Her Florida breed, street smart background has made her a prime candidate to be drawn into the loco world of subterfuge and criminals that her ex-boyfriend, Frankie, has recommended her for.
    Marisela and Frankie will take you for a sexy, turbulent ride as they struggle to sort through the obstacles that pop up in their way when they set out to fulfill Marisela’s first mission for Titan International Investigations. Her suave new boss, Ian Blake, will have Marisela making difficult choices between the past, present, and future when she negotiating the murky waters of Titan International and her assignment. Is the dollar the bottom line? Are new possibilities worth sacrificing for? Should Marisela put her faith in the new and unknown? Or should she give a second chance to the past that walked away?
    Dirty Little Secrets is a definite ‘must read’. All the right questions will be answered and leave you ready for another helping of Leto’s talented style. Let Marisela stoke your embers in this hot read.

    Julie Leto lures you in with red fingernails and the promise of steamy adventure with a heroine very comfortable with her gun. In the Miami heat or enjoying an island breeze in Puerto Rico, she thrills you with Marisela and the lengths she'll go to to see a job done right. A highly recommended read.

    Couldn't put the book down!

    This is the first book I read by Julie Leto and it will not be the last. The story about Marisela was exciting and sexy. Every page kept my attention and wanting for more. I hated to see it end. Tonight, I am going to buy the next book which is a continuation of Marisela's life.

    Shades of Stephanie Plum but stands on its Own

    I was skeptical that this might be another Evanovich knock-off, but this book takes you into the Cuban-American culture and is more serious and steamy. More spy novel than mystery. Excellent.

    Mindful of Stephanie Plum

    In Tampa at the Club Electric, Marisela Morales runs into her former lover Francisco ¿Frankie¿ Vega. Ten years ago when she was a teen they were an entry, but he spent seven years in prison as an undercover DEA informer, has been out two years, but recently was busted for possession. Unbeknownst to him, Marisela works for AAA-Able Bail Bonds and has for the last seven years as an enforcer. Although he still desires her, Frankie has other problems to deal with so he plans to go home alone. She plans to bring bail jumper Frankie back with her. However, she also has not forgiven Frankie for breaking her heart a decade ago. Before taking him in, Marisela wants vengeance as only a woman scorned can demand even if she still finds she loves the rat. --- Mindful of Stephanie Plum, Marisela is a fine protagonist who has been a terrific enforcer for several years because her boss Alberto Garcia understood a basic tenet of not sending an employee back to home turf especially relatives and friends. Thus her chasing after the man she loved who she believes jilted her brings tension as Marisela proves Alberto is right. Readers will appreciate this strong cat and mouse thriller while wondering throughout just who is the rodent as the teenage love of the lead couple threatens to enflame them as adults, but both believe that there time has passed and have other issues to deal with first. Julie Leto provides a tense character driven suspense laden ¿Bad Girl¿ tale that subgenre fans will read in one sitting.--- Harriet Klausner
