Agent: Kennedy Barnes Target: Phoenix 'Nix' Ash Crimes: Hacker and Heartbreaker Mission: Get Close and Survive

After living her life in the shadows as the daughter of a congressman's secret affair, Kennedy Barnes joins 'Project Greenlight' - a clandestine intelligence organization. She's out to prove she's more than her father's dirty secret.

One of her first assignments is simple. Get close to Phoenix Ash, collect enough evidence to put him away for life, and get out unscathed.

Phoenix Ash is a world renowned hacker. He's pulled off some of the biggest heists in modern history, but never leaves a trace. He knows people are after him and that every day may be his last, but when he meets Kennedy Barnes everything changes.

Lines are blurred and secrets are exposed as Phoenix and Kennedy both discover they do have a weakness - for each other.

This is a STANDALONE novel, but is interconnected with Dirty Work, which is now available.

Dawn's Review


Who doesn't love a bad boy? I mean, I know I sure do and let me just tell you that Brenda and Chelle have given us such good bad boy! I am totally in love with Nix! But lets not leave Kennedy, aka Eva outta this love fest! I am girl crushing hard on her, SHE IS A SPY! Dude, a kickass chick who is a spy. I mean come on, that is not something you read everyday.
I am not sure how it is done once, but to have lightening strike twice? That is how special the chemistry is between these two authors. Dirty Work was so good and worked so well, how can they top that? But man do they in Dirty Secret. This story is so seamless, you can not tell who is writing what part, and I LOVE THAT! The story just flows with no hick ups, nothing is lacking. I can't say " I wish there was more of this ... and less of that." This book is the total package, drama, sexiness, love, angst, betrayal and forgiveness. I am such a fan of the Rothert/Bliss collaboration sign me up for more!!!!

Kennedy is on a mission, a mission to prove that she is more than the illegitimate daughter of a disgraced Senator. She has always been kept secret and now she has taken on a job where secrecy is key. Working for Greenlight as a secret agent, means she gets to be whomever she wants to be while taking down drug dealers and arms smugglers. She is getting in deep when she meets the elusive Phoenix "Nix" Ash, hacker extraordinaire. He is the key, the key to the big dogs, with him being one himself. But will Kennedy be able to survive getting close to Nix? Will she make it out alive and with her heart still in tact?

Phoenix "Nix" Ash, he is calm cool and collected and he never gets caught. Being a black hat hacker is just one of his many talents. He can rob you blind and never bat an eye. He can move money around and hide it so that it is never found, with just a few keystrokes. He is intrigued by Kennedy the first time he sees her in a blue wig and playing with her lip ring. Nix knows she is up to something but he can't quite put all the puzzle pieces together and figure it out. Is it worth it to risk his freedom to get to know her? Does she have secrets like he does? What is the price they will pay if they choose give in and let it happen?

I LOVED this story so much! I mean it, I was so wrapped up in every detail, every word. I devoured it, reading it all in one setting.   The need to know just how this would play out, overtook my need for sleep and food. I loved Nix and Kennedy's dynamic, they were explosive. The heat that these two produced could be felt coming off the pages. The struggle for power, who had the upper hand, who was calling the shots, who would give in first. JUST SO GOOD!  I can not give it away, but when the pooh hits the fan, I was just dying to see how it would be handled. As per the usual it was handled perfectly and just like I wanted it to be.  I have to say one of my most favorite parts (and there were many) was the exchange between Coco and Kennedy! I laughed so hard during their brief but so very important encounter. 
I want to take a second and tell you that this is a SUPER SEXY story. Like grab your man and give him some lovin' kind of HOT!  I was thoroughly pleased with the steamy scenes in this story and wow, did it make me a major Nix fan!  

I am dying to see more collaborations between these two authors. I feel like "it anin't broke don't fix it." This is a writing match made in haven!!!

SYNOPSIS:

Lex
Monsters come in all shapes and sizes. Mine came in the form of four Calle 18 members, southern California’s
most ruthless drug gang.
They kidnapped me, locked me in a room, and ripped the life from my very soul. The things that happened to me were unimaginable, even in my most vile of nightmares. Then, one night he opened the door. His name is Cholo and he slays monsters. Cholo
Monsters come in all shapes and sizes. Mine came in the form of fearing failure. So, I made sure everything I did, I did better than any other man. The only thing I didn't do well? Commit to a woman. The son of a Hispanic mother and an Irish father, I grew up known as a ‘half breed’. The Hispanics saw me as white and the white’s called me a Beaner. Soon, I found a place where I fit in, and fit in well.  With the Filthy Fuckers MC. I had no idea that one night I'd stumble upon a room filled with kidnapped women, or that one of them would steal my heart. She did, though. Her name is Lex and she saved me from my monsters.

(Scarlet Scars Book One)

J.M. Darhower

Release Date: January 16th

Scarlet Scars is a two-book series.

***Scarlet Scars contains dark elements that some readers may find disturbing***






***Synopsis***

Once upon a time, there was a guy who got so fed up with life that he resorted to murder and mayhem just to feel alive.

Lorenzo Gambini is bored. So fucking bored. Most people either annoy him or avoid him, afraid to face him. Figuratively. Literally. With his face partially disfigured, scarred, he looks every bit the monster the stories make him out to be: the notorious menace they call Scar. They say he's a sociopath. Maybe he's a psychopath. Whatever path he's on, people tend to stay far away from it.

Until one day, a young woman bumps right into him—a woman just as fed up with life, but for much different reasons. With a Scarlet Letter inked on her wrist and secrets buried deep in her soul, Morgan Myers is running from something... or maybe somebody. Lorenzo isn't quite sure.

You can bet your ass he's going to figure it out, though.

Dawn's Review




I have been waiting for this book, OH MY BOB have I wanted me some Bear! I never really knew what to expect when it came to Bear. He has has a presence in the Men Of Inked books and was spotted in the other ALFA books, but to get my own Bear book, is just... awesome! 

First lets talk Fran shall we? I pictured her exactly how Ms. Bliss described her " a track suit, orthopedic shoe wearing 50+ woman." Think, Betty White's 
Rose Nylund from the Golden Girls... I know she may be too old, but that is where my brain went. I got the biggest kick out of her! Fran had me rolling and just so shocked at the things that would come out of her mouth. The banter between Maria and Fran had me crying! I just LOVE that relationship.When Fran decides to act her age and not like an OLD women. She ditched the track suits for some tight jeans and some high heels, how was Bear not suppose to notice?

Bear, just yes... He is such a fun dude to read about. I laughed out loud so much . At one point I had to stop and compose myself. I was laughing to the point of tears. 

"Pressing my front to her back, I placed my mouth close to he ear. 
"Who's your daddy?'
"Tom," Fran said with a bit of a chuckle." 

" I growled. " Do you want me?"
"Yes," she said in the airy , wanton tone. 
"Bend over and touch your toes."
Her eyebrows drew together. 
"Do you know how old I am ? Fuck me, Bear. I haven't been able to touch my toes for twenty years."
"Fran," I said, trying to hold my laughter. I hadn't even thought about her age as a factor in the scene that I had playing out in my mind. 
"Bend over and hold the door handle."
"That I can do." Gripping the door handle tightly, she bent at the waist, pushing her ass against my body."

It was passages like those, that had me just falling for this couple. They had this chemistry that was undeniable and quickly became one of my most favorite couples ever! 
Bear constantly had to defend his actions to Morgan. I thought it was such a beautiful moment when Morgan finally realized that Bear was crazy in love with his mom and that Bear would lay down his life for her. Bear had the love of his life once and was okay with spending his remaining days alone, without love. He never expected it to be Fran to complete him and heal his heart as well as his family.

Nico by Sarah Castille .... review by Dawn






A dangerous proposal
In Nico, the first book in the Ruin & Revenge series by New York Times bestselling author Sarah Castille, Las Vegas Mafia boss, Nico Toscani, is used to getting what he wants, whether it is having the City of Sin under his rule or a beautiful woman in his bed. But when he meets his match in the gorgeous, headstrong Mia Cordano, the daughter of a rival crime lord, all bets are off. . .
Sexy computer hacker, Mia, struggles to break free of her ruthless father’s Mafia ties…but she can’t resist the powerful and seductive Nico, who will stop at nothing to possess her. With their families locked in a brutal war for control of the city, Mia and Nico enter into a forbidden game. Will they surrender to the passion that burns between them―and risk tearing apart their families? Or will Nico be forced to betray the only woman who sets his blood on fire?











This is not my first Sarah Castille book, but I believe my first Mafia book by her.  The high points are that this is a sexy read, I really like the characters, very much and I happen to love Mob stories. I really like the arranged marriage aspect of it, because that make's it more  believable for me. I loved Nico and Mia together, his fire and her determination it was explosive.
What I had an issue with was, it seemed as if there was  "MOB TERMS'" check list and the author had to use each of them, checking them off as she went. I at times felt like I was reading a campy 1980's mob story.
I hated Mia's father, which made me happy.. then I hated her brother, and he deserved what he got.  I just wanted someone from her family to step up and protect her. Finally when her Mother did, I was like YES!
I'm not sure making her family (father and brother) as monstrous as they were was a good thing for this story or not. OH! and the body guards that worked for her father were the worst, that was a bit hard to swallow that a father would let that happen, but whatever.
I found the reveals of intertwined characters very exciting!!!
I am interested to see what happens with her sister and her cop boyfriend!
I would like to give this a 3.5
