Blurb: Graham Craig and Darren Sanford have been having an affair for nearly a year, a secret affair. Graham doesn't want anyone to know. When Darren's emotions become too deeply involved, Graham knows he has to break things off, even if it feels like he's cutting out his own heart.
When his self-imposed separation from Darren becomes more than he can stand, Graham goes back to beg for another chance. He sets out to prove what they have together is special. Then Graham learns some terrifying news that changes everything. Someone has put a hit out on him and everyone he loves is in danger. Graham knows what he has to do. As much as it pains him, Graham tells Darren they are over, again. He knows that this time, Darren will never give him another chance, but at least the man will be alive to hate him. Graham goes into protective custody, along with other members of the drug task force he works on, and his family.
But when well-meaning friends interfere, can Graham save the man he loves before an assassin's bullet gets him, or will he lose Darren before he has a chance to tell him—and the entire world—how much he loves the man?
Review: His Dirty Little Secret is more than just an emotionally charged gay contemporary romance. It’s action adventure, romantic suspense, family drama, thriller and even romantic comedy. It’s spicy with lots of flavors that tempt you to keep turning the pages of this tasty treat.
Darren is a great character. He has depth and compassion. There is an especially poignant section that shows the worst in him and the best in him. I don’t want to give any spoilers, but he takes on a responsibility in a truly selfless way. After Graham has torn him down, he receives a special gift that helps to build him up again. After that I fell in love with him all over again.
Graham has more issues. He’s really the dominant personality in the story, and at times he was almost unlikeable. When it comes to his sexuality and especially his feelings for Darren, his insecurities endeared me to him. He is definitely redeemed in the end. Their love connections is hot, sexy and a total turn on.
There were some issues in this story. At times the characters roles became fuzzy. Scenes that Darren became the “cop” and Graham seemed to flounder and not know what to do. Strange since Graham is on the drug task force and through most of the story he is a decision maker. But even in the moments when the story was confusing, it was still good writing. Dialog flowed, the pace was fast and the sex was hot.
I think Ms. Glenn is a wonderful voice in the gay romance genre. This was not my first taste and certainly won’t be my last. I look forward to reading more of her work.
