Instigating a TORRID LITTLE AFFAIR–A Release Week Review

Hi there! Today I’m sharing a review for a new contemporary romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kendall Ryan. TORRID LITTLE AFFAIR is the third book in her Forbidden Desires series, but able to be enjoyed as a standalone. I really enjoyed THE BED MATE, so I was excited to pick up this new office romance!

About the book:
The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.

My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…

But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.

Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?

I have a feeling those might do the trick.

My Review:
Brothers Quinn, Gavin and Cooper Kinsley own an escort agency, Forbidden Desires, in Boston. Semi-spoiler that Gavin and Cooper fell for the same woman in a previous title, but Cooper’s licking his wounds at the beginning of this book, because that love didn’t pan out. And, he desperately wants love. Growing up, their single mother had to resort to lots of unsavory activity to keep the lights on and three growing boys fed–which is why none of them think running a high-end escort agency is an issue. Still, Cooper has had a desire to be the love of a woman’s life, and take good care of her for some time now.

He’s called back from his self-imposed sabbatical to find a beautiful new assistant, Corinne in his office. He thinks she’s a “get back in the swing of things” sexy set-up, and he makes a very inappropriate introduction… Corinne is stunned, and bursts into tears. And that’s when Cooper falls hard. He was attracted on sight; Corinne is a lush, petite woman. But his protective hackles are now raised and he wants more than a quick tumble. Not that Corinne’s ready for anything of the sort…

Corinne isn’t ready for another man in her life. She’s still responsible for her dearest childhood friend–Aaron–who’s in a wheelchair and needs daily medical attention. The medical benefits she’s getting from Forbidden Desires are too good to pass up, and soon she realizes that Cooper’s more personal offer: to he her strings-free sexytimes assistant, is also too good to resist. That said, Corinne has not had good experiences in the sexy department. Growing up through the foster care system, Corinne suffered physical abuse and molestation, and it’s left her scarred. Cooper’s patient and attentive, and the more time they spend the more each of them find they want strings! It’s complicated by Corinne’s attachment to Aaron. But, it’s not insurmountable. And, if there’s one thing that Cooper is good at, it’s getting on top of…things.

Expect lots of sexytimes that are yummy, but they aren’t all happy endings. Corinne’s struggles to be at peace with herself and her arousal are difficult to overcome, and her big secret about Aaron is nearly a deal-breaker. Good thing Gavin and Quinn won’t let Cooper give up on the best relationship he’s ever had. And, Corinne’s confidante Mauve makes sure that Cooper knows how best to care for both Corinne and Aaron. It ends with a very happy ending, and a teaser for the next book in the series that will feature Quinn getting his girl.
