    I enjoyed the relationship parts of The Dirty Secret The building of chemistry and the sex scenes were sensual, and extremely hot, beautifully written I liked that the problems this couple face never reached an angsty drama filled level, where I d roll my eyes and want to throw my Kindle out, but the conflict still captured my interest and kept me on the edge a bit Where I had some major issues was the amount of time spent on interior design I do love home decorating shows on TV, but I don t I enjoyed the relationship parts of The Dirty Secret The building of chemistry and the sex scenes were sensual, and extremely hot, beautifully written I liked that the problems this couple face never reached an angsty drama filled level, where I d roll my eyes and want to throw my Kindle out, but the conflict still captured my interest and kept me on the edge a bit Where I had some major issues was the amount of time spent on interior design I do love home decorating shows on TV, but I don t expect that level of detail in my romances It was actuallydetailed than a home improvement show, IMO Such a high percentage of this story was devoted to color, design, and technique that I found myself skimming those parts and just reading any character interactions Far too much detail and too distracting for me Had the author edited much of that out my rating would ve been higher because, as I said, the romance was very erotic and beautifully written A copy was kindly provided by Carina Press via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    OMG I love when a random book ends up being such a sweet surprise I loved this book I loved EVERYTHING about it The writing was so fucking beautiful that I just wanted to read about the author describing pretty much anything and everything What a breath of fresh air When Killian and Vessa both seek out the help of Donna Edith, a woman with a certain knack for pairing folks, she s a trip of a character they getthan they bargained for.Killian needs a designer and Vessa, beyond a payc OMG I love when a random book ends up being such a sweet surprise I loved this book I loved EVERYTHING about it The writing was so fucking beautiful that I just wanted to read about the author describing pretty much anything and everything What a breath of fresh air When Killian and Vessa both seek out the help of Donna Edith, a woman with a certain knack for pairing folks, she s a trip of a character they getthan they bargained for.Killian needs a designer and Vessa, beyond a paycheck and a place to hide away she needs to design Fresh out of college without experience to land a job, this is the perfect chance to build up her portfolio up without anyone asking too many questions.But once these two meet and spend time discovering each other, the chemistry is off the charts And as much as this got steamy and it did it was so poetic that it felt like you were reading about so muchthan just skin on skin contact Only a few authors really paint a picture with their words, creating something much larger than just the words on a page, but this author did that and so muchEven though the idea of design really holds no appeal to me, I couldn t help but fall directly into the story The flow of everything was just so beautifully done that I just couldn t seem to get enough As much as I can get lost in an ordinary book, every now and then I read something that is really extraordinary and for me, right at this moment It was this book

    I don t think I was in the right mood for this one Or maybe it was all the decorating and design stuff that distracted me from enjoying the book fully Those parts started to bore me after awhile I liked the book, but at times felt myself skimming because I just wanted to finish Probably a case of wrong book at the wrong time.

    This is one for the ages, folks I don t usually give out five stars that easily, but I felt like this book deserved it There are so many reasons and, or criteria as to why a book warrants a high rating But for me, I simply go by how much enjoyment I derived from it And this book is pure fun Plus, I may be a little jealous of the author s writing.THE MATCHMAKERDonna Edith is a matchmaker Though you probably shouldn t say that to her face if you ever want to hire her services Because that s This is one for the ages, folks I don t usually give out five stars that easily, but I felt like this book deserved it There are so many reasons and, or criteria as to why a book warrants a high rating But for me, I simply go by how much enjoyment I derived from it And this book is pure fun Plus, I may be a little jealous of the author s writing.THE MATCHMAKERDonna Edith is a matchmaker Though you probably shouldn t say that to her face if you ever want to hire her services Because that s far from what she does Her company places people with the right employers It just so happens that this woman has a knack for giving them what they need when they need it the most Though in the case of her two clients, they didn t even know what they needed when they each decided to avail of her services.THE ARCHITECTKillian Fitzroy is a man on the verge of greatness He s a brilliant architect well on his way to success But he is a man starved for relationships sex, in particular With the long hours that he puts in and the demands of a job that he loves on most days , he doesn t have the time to make real connections.THE DESIGNERFresh off graduation, Vessa Ratham moved back to Vermont to be closer to her family Without any real experience as a designer, she needed actual clients to start her portfolio With Donna Edith s help, she was seduced by a house and a man both in need of her touch.Truth be told, had I not been familiar with the author, I d have bypassed this book in a heartbeat After all, the matchmaking romances I ve read in my lifetime is simply too many to count I have not read a book by this author I did, however, read her fanfiction work At the time, I was already in awe of her writing There is something magical, lyrical and beautiful about how she strung her words together She writes pretty prose that are far from pretentious It feels natural and easy She gives her characters personalities that are unique that you d think they are made from a form of magic Vessa is a strong character who picks and chooses her battles She s determined and headstrong vulnerable and courageous It s difficult to explain The secondary characters were also far from ordinary There s her stoner friend who was faraware than any lucid person you d know her landlord who shares her love for antiquities and interesting things and Killian s friends who made his lonely existence a bittolerable before he met Vessa.But if there s one thing I can complain about is the wild designs Vessa came up with I m not going to lie, I could not imagine myself living in that house because damn I don t deal with brightly painted, wildly decorated rooms I just can t I m a huge follower of the minimalist movement, so the very idea of living in a house where a room is decorated with red walls and Chinese lanterns makes me want to break out in hives.I love that this book is pure romance It s relatively angst free, unlike most NA romances nowadays If you re a fan of NA, chick lit and contemporary romance, Kira Gold is an author to watch

book you highlight endlessly, the words speaking to your heart and soul, the images coming to life in front of your eyes I ve never described an adult romance or erotica novel as beautiful before, but

Inspired and Carlene Corrupted.Full review posted 03 29 16 The Dirty Secret is the kind of book you highlight endlessly, the words speaking to your heart and soul, the images coming to life in front of your eyes I ve never described an adult romance or erotica novel as beautiful before, but this book is just that I read passages aloud, I would flip pages back just to re read scenes, and I read it at every free moment I could I couldn t put Vessa or Killian away, nor the beautiful house they blossomed in The Dirty Secret reads like it is based in some beautiful fairy tale world, the love between a hiding fairy princess and a wayward traveling soul, while it s really based in Vermont and is a story as real as any a person could live Kira A Gold, an author unknown to me until now, has a way with words that make them glitter and come alive It wasthan just the descriptions of feelings from the two main characters, but the way she described a bed, a wall color, or skin against skin I felt the feelings with Killian as he watched the elusive Vessa decorate, I felt the kiss of her lips against his skin, the feel of their rug under their undulating bodies, all because of the incredibly descriptive style Gold uses to build the story to climaxShe pushed him backward, wishing she could crawl inside his bones, wanting to be inside his structure, his strength Aside from the words, I loved the characters and their distinct characteristics and POV s Trustworthy Killian sees things analytically and he s so career driven he hasn t even managed to get his own place Bewitching Vessa is an artist through and through, determined beyond anything, finding hope in the dying leaves of a flower and connecting colors into feelings Their meeting, though meant for business purposes, brings fiery chemistry and unsettles Killian in such a way that he just cannot let her go Vessa carries secrets though and has her trust held so deeply in her heart that no one can pull it from her When they finally give in to one another though, that s what the romance of this book comes to life They become like other characters they re lively, their sexual, they whisper secrets on their breath, however as soon as the moment ends the secrets are locked away again It was enchanting to watch these two on the slow, drawn out path they were on, giving and receiving, but not giving enough and finally growing and developing from the shadows they were I loved getting to know both of them in bits in pieces, sort of like the house they were putting together from scratch Then there s the secondary characters, the co workers, the landlord, Donna Edith the Matchmaker Each character was so unique and played significant roles into how each character acted in different situations It wasn t just rainbows, butterflies, and smut, but their careers, their moments when separated, that made the characters and the story feel realisticOh, are we up to no good she asked, turning in his arms She kissed his mouth He chuckled and kissed her back She tasted like her coffee and the sweetness that was just her, and as always, he rose to the occasion, cock hungry, hands grabby Finally, is the home that Killian and Vessa meet in Set up by reknowned Matchmaker, Donna Edith, she knows there sthan meets the eye when it comes to both characters,than just a house What begins as an architect needing an interior decorator, and an artist needing her first big break, soon grows into both recognizing their true wants and the desire they find in one another The home is outrageous, it s gorgeous, it s everything I would want by myself and just like Starla said, nothing I would ever admit to It was such a magical setting for the relationship to grow, a secret place, a place made of glitter, romance, and all things good As a huge fan of interior design, the parts of the book that related to each individual room, and the acts that took place in them, were my favoriteHe sat down on the fourth stair still holding the rail, listening to his heartbeat, absorbing the whimsy of the walls, lighthearted and welcoming and sexy Vessa all over and happy Relief washed over him in slow waves This lyrical book was a complete surprise, the kind that leaves a mark on your heart This wasn t the kind of erotica that makes you feel like you need a shower or need another book to get you out of that single mindedness, no this is the kind of erotica that had a backbone, it wasthan two people meeting for a quickie or finding their sexual tastes Every moment in this book was hot, sultry, clothes on, clothes off, main or secondary characters, because everything felt monumental when I read It s a story of art, architecture, friendship, family, honest, and love and it was a complete joy to read This unique, flirtatious novel is absolutely one I suggest you one click.I would love to readabout Donna Edith and the people she matches
