Where do I start? This is the second collaboration between Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert and I loved this story. Dirty Secret has it all, intrigue, mystery, danger, smoking hot scenes and romance. Kennedy Barnes is determined to make a name for herself in the intelligence community and sees this assignment as her big break; no longer content to be her father's Dirty Secret. What happens when Kennedy is assigned to get close to Phoenix Ash and learn all about his illegal business practices? When the lines between business and pleasure continually cross between Nix and Kennedy, it is difficult to know which side will win out. What happens when Kennedy realised that all is not as it seems and that perhaps Nix is not the complete bad guy that they all think he is? Will Kennedy follow her gut instinct? Or will she bow to the pressure from her bosses and bring Nix in? The attraction between Nix and Kennedy is instantaneous, so much so that Nix in particular has a hard time focusing on the job at hand and despite warnings from his friends, is determined to learn all there is to know about Kennedy, even inviting her to his home, his sanctuary. This was a romance with a difference. You could feel the struggle playing out as Nix and Kennedy fought to keep their lives separate but when danger occurs it is Nix that Kennedy turns to for help. This was an intriguing read from the first to the last page and I was disappointed when it ended. Dirty Secret was well written and I have no idea where one author ended and the other took over. Ms. Bliss and Ms. Rothert blended their writing together in such a way that the continuity was flawless. I cannot wait to read future collaborations from these two authors.

Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert have teamed up again to give us yet another great read. This book has it all twists and turns,secrets, suspense, intrigue and romance. Nix and Kennedy are not meant to be together they are from opposite sides of the law but sometimes life and love take us to places we are not meant to go and is Nix really the bad guy, can Kennedy make him an offer he can't refuse.... Dirty Secret had me hooked from the first page and it had me on the edge of my seat to the last. This is a must read book if you are looking for a romance mixed with danger and a lot of sizzling sex, It's a real enemies to lovers story. The characters have depth are strong and you can't help liking them. What I loved about this collaboration was I couldn't tell who had written which part and it just flowed so well. What a great job the authors did with books one and two and I'm looking forward to reading more from the two of them.

"Ridiculously good! Pick up a copy. It won't disappoint!" This author duo really brought this interconnected standalone series to life. I was so engaged I devoured it in one sitting and still wanted more of Nix. From the moment you start to read this well written story you find yourself becoming captivated and eager to turn the pages. The story line seems so real that you just cannot stop yourself from falling head over heels with it all. This is truly a thrilling and sensual read and trust me; you won't want to put it down!! I really loved Kennedy and Nix. They were terrific multi-dimensional characters. The chemistry and connection between them was just right. It wasn't forced or rushed which I love! It was gradual and slow building and hot. Oh did I mention hot like in scorching HOT. Ladies Nix is a Panty Melter. There were a number of twists that made the whole book richer and an outcome that made me sigh and smirk!! I really suggest that you read this wonderfully written book!

As the secret love child of a U.S. senator, Kennedy Barnes knows a thing or two about hiding who she really is. So, working undercover to bring down the bad guys? Piece of cake. Keeping her emotions out of it? Well, you can't win them all... DIRTY SECRET is the second collaboration between authors Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert, and together they have written a sexy, sassy, dangerous book that had me hooked from the first intriguing page. Kennedy is a kick-butt chick. She's been trained by the best of the best to do whatever it takes to close the deal and bring in the people doing bad, bad things. Sure, Phoenix 'Nix" Ash is one of those guys, but Kennedy is sure that she can handle him with one hand tied behind her back. After all, she's got some, erm, assets working in her favor. Problem? Soon enough, she's all in with Nix's own assets, and things are getting tricky. Nix has been doing the thing he's best at for a very long time, and he's not about to be brought down by a long pair of legs and a take-no-junk attitude. So what if Kennedy makes him feel things he's had locked down for forever? He's in control. Until he isn't. DIRTY SECRET is all kinds of hot, filled with political intrigue and the seedy underbelly of the criminal world. Chelle and Brenda have done a stellar job of creating characters that can take are of themselves, and anyone else that should happen along, and writing their story in such a way that I just could not put it down. The chemistry between Kennedy and Nix fairly explodes off the page, melting panties left and right, and making for some seriously hot encounters that will not be forgotten anytime soon. 4.5 steamy, covert, hot-as-sin stars for DIRTY SECRET. Do not miss out on this one, I'm telling you. You can thank me later...

There is just something about Chelle Bliss. I enjoy everything she writes. There is no fluff, no nonsense, just good characters and a story that entertains me and I always seem to breeze right through it. Kennedy and Phoenix or Eva and Nix, whatever name you want to call them, they are both head strong. They are both keeping secrets that they do not want to surface. Some are hiding under wigs and some are hiding under years of secrecy. Both of them of hiding their hearts in fear of having them broken. How long can these two keep their dirty secrets from each other? If you are like me you will love the journey of finding out!

Dirty Secret is an epically mind-blowing and emotionally intense nuclear bomb just waiting to go off! There is nothing more dangerous than holding such world shattering device in your hand. When you don’t know how to disarm it and stop it from exploding, the panic and tension will sear through to your very soul. Nothing is more deadly and yet nothing is more capable of making you hyper-focused on what matters the most then a weapon of mass destruction. One wrong move or one wrong combination will trigger it to wreak havoc on your life in the most permanent and earth shattering way possible. What anyone would give to know how to diffuse it would make your mind reel. Kennedy longs to make a difference in the world. She knows the pain and sorrow that fills the homes and streets where she grew up and where she now lives, and if she can save even one life, it would all be worth it. She doesn’t mind working hard, but when her heart gets in the way of her job, she isn’t sure how to regroup or save it. She finds herself lost to a potential target, and her whole world could come falling down around her ears at any moment. Phoenix knows better than to open his life and most especially his heart to anyone. He has guarded himself for so long that he isn’t sure he know how to love anymore. One look at Kennedy and he can’t deny how he feels and what he wants. Against his better judgement, he initiates a dangerous game with her that could either blow up in their faces or prove to be best decision he ever made. Strong, sassy, and determined Kennedy struts her way into Phoenix’s life and heart. I can’t tell you how much I love to see a big hard man come completely undone through the love of a good woman. That melts my heart faster than an ice cream cone on a hot summer day. Kennedy didn’t weaken Phoenix, but she strengthened him and he did the same for her. They became stronger and complete together, and watching that beauty unfold was like watching Heaven. It completely took my breath away! Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert are a fantastic duet that will make you weak in the knees and crash through your heart while proving to you beyond a shadow of a doubt that love is never weak or cruel. It makes us so much better than we could ever by on our own. They have created a fantastic storyline with out of this world characters that will live with you long after you have finished this wonderful book. Whatever you do, I would encourage you to pick up one their books and give it a good chance. You will not be disappointed.

OMG! What an awesome read! Dirty Secrects by Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert freaking blew me away. Yhe characters of Kennedy and Nix are fantastic. Kennedy is a strong, fierce and loyal woman. She is one tough spy. I love why she joined. She believes in what she is doing. She fights for herself and others. Nix is not your average criminal. Not all is black or white. The more I learned, the more attractive he became. Their relationship was supposed to be a game. What an awesome journey. You will love the twist and turns.

I love it when two great authors come together! It's been awhile since a book has made me sad to put it down. It read like a sexy spy movie. Definitely one click. Buy this book! All the angst. And I absolutely love Kennedy and her determination. I about died when she was doing her first solo gig.

This story is an opposites attract story and Kennedy and Nix do not disappoint. It is full of secrets and lies that will either keep them safe or destroy them. Kennedy works for Greenlight as a secret agent and she is trying to help uncover arms and drug dealers that hang out at a local club. Phoenix is the well know black hat hacker that stays well under the radar because he hasn't been caught yet. When Kennedy sees him at the club and he seems interested in her, well her plans change. She will go after him while the arms dealer is out of town. What neither of them was counting on is the attraction they have for each other. Will the secrets and lies destroy what might have been? Can Kennedy help Nix turn his life around? Or will he destroy her in the process? I love this story and everything about Kennedy and Nix, the power of their feelings you can feel coming off the pages. Another great story from Bliss and Rothert. **Copy provided by the authors and this is my honest review.

Dirty Secret seduced me with it’s exciting story line that includes espionage, steamy romance, and thrilling mystery. Our heroine for this read is Kennedy; a young woman working in a CIA-type intelligence agency called Greenlight. (She’s also the illegitimate half sister of Reagan Preston who you may remember from the previous book, Dirty Work.) Kennedy is thriving in her career as a spy but leading a double life is beginning to wear her down. Nix is a computer-hacking bad guy that can’t seem to help himself from getting close to Kennedy. He’s made a name for himself in the seedy underworld of crime but he’s not all together a terrible guy. Nix is a huge target for the Greenlight agency and once he starts showing interest in Kennedy, she’s left with no choice than to try to get information from this big time hacker. Nix and Kennedy share some crazy steamy love scenes in this book. The two of these authors together make a great team for writing incredibly sexy scenes. The witty banter between the two characters reminded me of a lot of the banter in Dirty Work. I love a strong female character who can hold her own next to an equally as strong male lead and Kennedy certainly needs no man to take care of her. Nix is the perfect counterpart for her fierceness though. I give Dirty Secret 4 out of 5 Krissy’s Stars. This book is deeply sexy and the added thrill with of all the secrecy between the two main characters makes this book an exciting read!

Hold on to your panties readers - there is a ghost in your machine willing to steal them and his name is Phoenix. HOLY COLD SHOWER! Okay really what is equally important is duo Chenda Rothiss offer you a suspense/thriller/romance page turner that make you forget others who may be in the house with you and need to be feed. The story has you guessing who is really a good bad guy or a bad good guy. Not everything is clear to the reader or Kennedy on who she should trust. I thought I had it figured out and I was happily wrong. There really isn't detail I can say about the story without a "spoiler". Just know it was fun, fast and HOT! Now, if you loved Dirty Work, you'll love this story because it's NOT Dirty Work. If you didn't read Dirty Work, never fear because it's NOT Dirty Work part two. The story stands alone and apart. However, this writing duo provides story magic that won't disappoint any new or old fans. Take a quick look at my status updates as I read along and I know you'll want to one-click this latest offering. 5 out of 5 stars

Another hit from the Dirty Dual Bliss and Rothert I loved the first book of these two the "Dirty Work". I am so excited that they did another book. This time it is even twice the suspense and twice the hotness. These two authors did an amazing job with the second book. Kennedy, the product of a dirty affair proved to herself that is amazing just like her half-sister is. She is feisty, beautiful and strong. I loved her job and her ability to disguise. This girl is one tough cookie who is instantly attracted to Phoenix. Their chemistry is hotter than the fireplace. Dirty Secret is dirty indeed but at the same time, the twist will blow your mind and captured your hearts. Suspense with hotness is my kind of book to enjoy reading. Once you started reading this book, there is no stopping until the last page. I really enjoyed reading Dirty Secret. I cannot wait for their next assignment. I am sure it is intense, steamy and oh so good. Authors like Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert, nothing but amazing read that will blow your mind and your panties too.

I like when Brenda Rothert and Chelle Bliss write together. I really loved the first book, Dirty Work. Dirty Secret wasn't as enjoyable to me, but it was good. I really never connected with the main characters, Kennedy and Nix. Kennedy was a secret agent for Greenlight. She was supposed to be getting information on her mark, Nix. Nix was a perfessional computer hacker. They're both instantly attracted to one other. But she's a little hesitant to get too close to him. As time goes on she realizes she's falling for him and he's not as bad as they thought he was. This book was action packed and super sexy!

Dirty Secret was another good stand alone read from Chelle and Brenda. It was wonderfully hot and packed full of suspense and mystery. I read this in one sitting and was utterly engrossed with this story and these characters. Without going into it I really liked the plot line for this story (Undercover Agent trying to take down illegal hacker) as it was different to a lot of things around at the moment. The secrets and lies gave the story a nice edgy feel to it and kept you guessing all the way through. I was provided with a copy of this book from the Publisher; there was no inducement or obligation.

I have been itching to get my hands on Dirty Secret ever since it was announced, because I absolutely LOVED it's predecessor, Dirty Work. Kennedy Barnes is working intel in an underground crime ring, and when she catches the eye of super hacker extraordinaire Phoenix Ash, her mission shifts. It's simple - gain Nix's trust and get any intel possible to help bring him down. Phoenix Ash, like any criminal mastermind, has secrets that he holds close to the vest. While he may let Kennedy in his bed, her reach doesn't go much further than that (well, except the shower, the coffee table, you get the point...). While their interludes may be explosive, their ability to trust one another has limits. When secrets are uncovered, the delicate relationship they have started to build comes crashing down. Turns out that living on opposite sides of the law doesn't bode well for the future. Can Kennedy and Nix find a way to walk the line without getting burned? Or will their relationship go up in flames? Loved Kennedy and Nix, and I was absolutely thrilled to check in with Reagan and Jude as well. Four stars and two thumbs up for Dirty Secret!

I LOVE Chelle Bliss!!! Absolutely love her books!!! This one is a bit different than the ones I've read before. Although this book is a stand alone it is loosely connected to Dirty Work, written by Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert. My goodness, the only thing I like better than a hot alpha male is a woman that can not only stand toe to toe with said alpha, but can stand up for herself in any given situation. Kennedy Barnes is absolutely capable of doing that, and more, when needed. And Nix Ash, oh my!!! Hot, smart, and the best kind of alpha!!! This book brings all that readers have come to expect from these authors; high heat, suspense, an HEA, and so much more!!! Definitely a book a would recommend to anyone who loves all of that!!!
