Jamie - I’ve been wondering about this one! I think I need to pick this one up soon because it sounds great PLUS I’m feeling like I need something to fill the Nashville shaped hole in my heart. I LOVE THAT SHOW.

Wendy - I really want to read this one! I’m actually a country fan. =) I think I’d love this.

tabithasbookblog - I have to read this one! I’ve recently been reading all things Jennifer Echols, so naturally this has just been moved up on my TBR! I’m really interested in finding out what drove the two sisters apart and what Sam may or may not be hiding!

Great review!

Taylor @ Reading is the Thing - Jennifer Echols superfan here! I’m so excited to read Dirty Little Secret! I saw a so/so review of it the other day and got scared, so I’m really glad you liked it so much. Fantastic review Megan!

Molli - I didn’t like this one at all, as far as the characters, family dynamic, and romance. AT ALL. I DID love seeing how big of an influence music was (YAY country music!), and I did enjoy the writing style. But despite liking Sam, I didn’t think he and Bailey were healthy together at all. Blech! But this is a really honest and fair review, which is of the good. 🙂

Jen @ Pop! Goes The Reader - Okay, it’s official: I need this book in my possession ASAP. While I wasn’t the biggest fan of the previous Echols novel I read, Such A Rush, this one sounds like it was tailor made for me. This was a great review! It really increased my anticipation about this release. (Although I’m not sure whether that’s a good thing or not!) 😉

Alexa Y. - I am currently in the middle of a country music phase myself, as the music seems to pair so well with all the sunshine and beautiful weather. DIRTY LITTLE SECRET sounds like an amazing Echols book! I think I’ll definitely enjoy it, so I’ll have to look into procuring a copy as soon as I can.

Rachel - So basically I want to read this book for every reason you listed above. I love me some family drama and country music. And Sam and Bailey’s relationship sounds HOT which is totally great. I would also like to know this suspicious storyline of his.

June 19, 2013 - 11:04 am

Ginger @ GReads! - I had a hard time figuring Sam out, too. And to be honest, I wasn’t 100% on board with him even at the end. Things just didn’t.. settle well with me. But! This is an Echols book! And you KNOW my love for this woman, so of course I was pleased with the story overall.

Candice @ The Grown-Up YA - While I felt some of your reservations… I decided to shrug them off and say “whatever” because this book was SO good! I loved the scene, the music… While country music is definitely not my taste, I think I would’ve enjoyed the kind they played! And wow, that steamy scene… I got protective of Bailey too but wow. Great review!

Basma - I’m really looking forward to this! I clicked onto this after Jennifer Echols tweeted about – so it was obviously amazing.
Dirty Little Secret just seems like a book I’d love to read. Your review’s made me even more excited to read it.
Thanks! 🙂

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - WOOOOO!!!
I’m about 75 pages in so far? I’m reading it exclusively at work so it’s taking a looooong time but now I MAY ignore work to read some more today haha. I’m really enjoying it so far and I love the type of drama that is going down. Super curious and I LOVE Sam.
I’m REALLY loving the music aspect too. I’m not a country girl AT ALL but I love being able to relate to the music side of it (even though I’m not nearly as technical… whatever, I count a semester of music theory as basic knowledge haha. I’m stretching it, I know), but nevertheless, I’m making a connection there and I like it!
Great review! You got me all jazzed up for it again 🙂

Alexa Y. - This basically sounds like the perfect romance novel to read during the summer. I mean, come on COWBOYS. It doesn’t get much more attractive than that 😉

Daphne - i read the first book in this series & loved it & actually have the others but haven’t gotten to them yet. this looks really cute, though i’m kind of confused why they have TWO kids together and they’re still not trying to make it work. one i can understand. but anyway, i will definitely get to this one eventually. 🙂

May 30, 2013 - 2:40 pm

Molli - Well, it just so happens that I LOVE both country music AND cowboys. It’s been awhile since I read many adult contemporary romances, but I’m definitely looking to get back into reading a few more. I’ll have to keep an eye out for this one, or another one by the author, since you seemed to enjoy it, and loved the dialogue. Nice review, Estelle!

May 30, 2013 - 10:08 am

Natalie @ Books, etc. - I soooo want to read this! It’s about cowboys and country music, TWO OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS!!!! Great review, Estelle 🙂
