Title: Hottest Mess
No one can know about our love—and hiding only makes it hotter.
Dallas Sykes has a reputation. He is known for his parties, his money, and the countless women on his arm. Yet the Dallas I know is a different man—darker, smarter, and unbearably sexy. Just one look from him can leave me breathless; the anticipation of his touch can make me lose control.
Inextricably bound by our past, we keep each other’s secrets. And while there are people who have the power to hurt us, it’s the truth that threatens us most of all.
Dallas can be mine only behind closed doors, our passion as searing as it is forbidden. Yet nothing in this world has ever felt so desperately, deliciously right.

J. Kenner continues the story she started in Dirtiest Secrets. Dallas and Jane are still working on their relationship, searching for their kidnappers and having some off of the hottest sex ever.
As with the first novel, this one is full of really complex characters and tons of intrigue. I honestly cannot predict the ending. I’ve got a few theories about who’s going to be revealed as the bad guys or guys but none I’d bet on and no idea what their motives were/are. Kenner is excellent at weaving this tale and giving the readers just enough to keep us wondering.
I rated this one a little lower than the first. Not because the quality of the writing or the depth of the story wasn’t as good but because about halfway through I was starting to get tired of Dallas and Jane’s arguments. Dallas just can’t seem to tell the whole truth and Jane admits she can’t live without him but kicks him out or leaves every time she catches him keeping something from her. It’s understandable that Dallas struggles since he’s got some pretty harsh truths and they hurt to talk about. That’s completely authentic. I also understand Jane’s frustration but the roller coaster was annoying.
That said, I’m still a fan of the series and am moving right into The Sweetest Taboo. I really have to see how this all plays out and I hope these two can find their happiness.
