Torrid Little Affair by Kendall Ryan ~ Sarah A’s Review

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.

I was so looking forward to Cooper’s book.  He was so sweet and lovable in the first two books; I was desperate to see him get his happy ending.  I had such high hopes for his story and had built it up so much in my mind; the actual experience didn’t quite measure up to my imagination.  The story was still fantastic; it was my own preconceived notions that spoiled it for me.

Torrid Little Affair is the third book in Kendall Ryan’s Forbidden Desires series.  It is the only book, thus far, that can be read as a standalone, but Cooper is a major player in the first two books so reading them would be beneficial to understanding the place he’s in when this book begins.  Torrid Little Affair is told in dual first person – by Corinne & Cooper.

I was a little surprised by how quickly this story moved.  Ms. Ryan hit the ground running with Cooper’s story and kept up that fast pace until the end.  I particularly enjoyed how effortlessly Cooper and Corinne’s arrangement evolved into something they both needed but didn’t think they were ready for in any way.  The way they were able to open up to one another and trust each other with most of the broken parts of themselves was lovely, as it seemed like they both needed someone to be wholly invested in them with no expectations.

The only wish I have for Torrid Little Affair is that it had delved farther into Corinne’s past and rehashed Cooper’s a little more for the readers who hadn’t read the first books and for those of us who maybe didn’t have total recall of all he’d been through.  I felt as if there was a significant build-up to a few major events that had colored Corinne’s timidity and fears, but the traumas she’d experienced didn’t seem to mesh with what was hinted at.

I’m in love with this world Kendall Ryan has constructed in her Forbidden Desires series.  All of the brothers captivate me, and I can’t wait to find out more about them.  While Cooper’s story didn’t hit me as hard as Gavin’s did, I still loved getting to see him find happiness and his own true love.  I can’t wait for Quinn’s story; he’s been a bit of an outlier in the first three books and that air of mystery that surrounds him has me fully intrigued.
