Dirty Secret by Mira Lyn Kelly

Dirty Secret Book ReviewOh, how I love a Mira Lyn Kelly romance! Dirty Secret does not disappoint. This hockey romance had me flipping the pages, smiling and burning up inside. Yes, the book may have deepened the wrinkles on the corners of my eyes, but that's why they created thick moisturizer. This second-chance, big brother in-the-way romance had me lusting after Vaughn. Yum, yum, yum. Personally, I'm the kind of gal who prefers to play the sport rather than spectate. And I'm extraordinarily wobbly on a pair of ice skates, so, there you go. But, the play by play action made me think dear Mira is one serious hockey fan. Mira could be a sports commentator. And, she makes me want to take the time, with a beer in hand, to watch a game. I loved this book because it's down to earth. My heart went out to Natalie. I've seen so many siblings get lost in the throes of one sibling's sport success. And it starts so freaking young. To want a different life, a life away from whatever that sport is.......here it's hockey, but you can substitute soccer, baseball, tennis.....if it has a ball, it's game. That desire for a life away from said sport is real. Vaughn proves himself swoon worthy to the tenth degree. He's driven, focused, level headed and he knows how to love his woman. He's a dream athlete. He pushes himself hard, doesn't let the mind games off the rink play with his game on the rink, and he's a genuinely good guy. He might be slightly behind the curve on social skills, but that's only because of his deranged hockey fanatic Dad.
Dirty Secret also paves the way for Dirty Hookup. And, I'm kind of dying to hear about what went on with Quinn and George. Not that I personally have ever had too much to drink (there's an evil twin I try to keep locked up who does all that), but my heart did go out to Quinn when it seemed he didn't remember EVERYTHING....   So, in a nutshell, it's the best kind of series. Warm, heart-melting HEA and I'm completely stoked for the next book.
