Dirty Secret Dirty Secret by Chelle Bliss
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book's predecessor so I couldn’t wait to dive in to read about Reagan’s half-sister, Kennedy Barnes, and her “black ops” lifestyle.

There is something so rewarding when reading about empowered women and Kennedy's role in this book as an undercover Agent targeting arms dealers is really enjoyable. Kennedy is sexy, strong, determined and stunningly beautiful, all of which make her an extremely deadly weapon in the field, especially where men are concerned. One such unsuspecting man is Nix, a black hat hacker and someone already on Kennedy’s radar. Guilty of hacking finances and stealing millions, Nix is a prized target and when he becomes attracted to Kennedy, it’s up to her to bring him to his knees. The only problem, she manages to bring him to his knees... with love.

Kennedy knows that it’s up to her as to how far she takes her duties, but she is swayed by Nix’s good looks and easy-going personality and it’s not long before their explosive, if albeit, undercover, love affair starts. Both know they are keeping secrets from each other. Nix pleads with Kennedy to let him into her life but she knows that she can never reveal her Greenlight role to him. All Nix knows is that he needs to protect her and when things turn nasty at the Loft, a secret club used by the criminal underworld, Nix knows that he has no option but to step in.

Nix’s business is impenetrable, that it until his ward leads him down a path he can’t return from but Kennedy is there to try to smooth the waters but will Nix ever be able to forgive her when her secrets are revealed?

I did enjoy this story but I felt that I was crying out for more mystery and intrigue at times. The story, although fascinating was a relatively easy-going read and despite the inevitable love-hurdle faced by Kennedy and Nix, their story was over before it got going. Whilst I love these authors, I felt that this book was a little bit rushed at times and lacking depth and plot. That said, it’s an easily enjoyable book to read and I loved the connection between Kennedy and Nix. Kennedy’s strength of character in relation to her role as an Agent seemed a little weak on occasion but overall her character was loveable but Nix, well, he could have sold the story to me all on his own!
