Bound Beneath His Pain (Dirty Little Secrets, #1)
By Stacey Kennedy
Real estate mogul Micah Holt exerts absolute control over all aspects of his life. He keeps his dark side hidden away from the press, who will chase down any hint of scandal. He’s always in command of his world, careful to expose his closely guarded secrets only to those he knows he can trust. Then Allie Bennett shakes his legendary discipline. She’s beautiful, pure, untainted. But is Micah willing to sacrifice her innocence for his own selfish obsessions?
When that sexy smile makes her body burn, Allie tries with all her might to ignore it. For one thing, Micah's her new boss. For another, he's as complicated as he is devastatingly handsome. Still, Allie can only fight so much before she gives in to his dangerous games. She knows he's got dark secrets. But when she discovers the true depth of his pain, Allie must decide how far she's willing to go to light the way for love.

I didn't know what to expect from this book, I have never read this author. This book had ebbs and flows. Sometimes it clicked with me and other times I was like that did not really happen...that was the big reveal?
I liked Allie. She really seemed to know who she was and what she wanted. She was not the type of girl that settled. I liked how she was her own person and didn't want to depend on anyone. I really didn't get the relationship between her brother and her. It would be interesting to see what he felt he owed her.
Micah well he was a tad dramatic about things. His big reveal was like...oh well so.. I don't understand the big deal and how Allie needed protected. He was a jerk to her twice and I wondered why she kept him around, but I guess she saw straight through him. He was a charming billionaire.
The next book was set up at the end. It has me interested.
I received an ARC from Loveswept via NetGalley for a honest review.
