From the New York Times bestselling author of such “racy, sizzling Stark novels” (RT Book Reviews) as Release Me and Say My Name comes the provocative first Stark International Novel—the beginning of the S.I.N. series.
It was wrong for us to be together, but it was even harder to be apart.
The memory of Dallas Sykes burns inside of me.
Everyone knows him as a notorious playboy, a man for whom women and money are no object. But to me, he’s still the one man I desperately crave—yet the one I can never have.
Dallas knows me better than anyone else. We bear the same scars, the same darkness in our past. I thought I could move on by staying away, but now that we’re drawn together once more, I can’t fight the force of our attraction or the temptation to make him mine.
We’ve tried to maintain control, not letting ourselves give in to desire. And for so long we’ve told ourselves no—but now it’s finally time to say yes.
Dirtiest Secret is intended for mature audiences.

Patricia‘s Review – 3 Stars: ☆☆☆
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is my first J. Kenner book and while I enjoyed the plot, I found myself pretty confused while reading it because the story often changes from third person to first person. I don’t know if her books are all like this or not, but this is something I struggle with…
Until the mark of 60% of the story, everything is blurry. There’s a lot of secrets waiting to be discovered and twists, as the kidnapping of Dallas and Jane is told to the reader as memories from both of them.
Dallas and Jane were both adopted by Eli when they were little kids (Its important to know that they don’t share the same blood), they grew up together, they are best friends, they love each other, they want more than a brother/sister relationship…
They were kidnapped at 15 and nothing ever was like before. Broken and traumatized, they struggle for a normal life, Jane as an author where she can tell stories about kidnappings and Dallas as the head of Deliverance, a group of men who fights and seek vengeance from kidnappers all over the world, trying at the same time to find his own kidnappers: The Woman and The Jailer.
The sexual tension between Dallas and Jane are off the charts! This is for me the high point of the book as well as Dallas secret that explains everything about his fake persona. After this, the story takes another step and pace, making everything more enjoyable until the book ends in a cliffhanger making the reader want more about this story.
No doubt I want to read more, but the story being told from third person (Dallas) and from first person (Jane) is a big no for me.
