Billie finds herself in the wrong place, while trying to take care of a situation she has gotten herself into. She finds that she is in need of help from sexy Detective Dare Stephanos, who is investigating her for a murder he has to question her about. The sexual sparks start flying the minute they lay eyes on each other and both of them know that would not be a good idea to extinguish that fire.

Being a woman, who is used to handling herself without help from anyone, she makes some serious enemies and their only option for her is death. Dare is surprised at his need to protect Billie, because he doesn’t normally feel this way about anyone. She is a constant pain for him, because she kept giving him the slip, and he wonders how she is able to be so elusive. Her headstrong ways will be the death of him before he can prove her innocence, and he needs to clear his own name also, so he could return to his old job in Homicide.

Dirty Little Secrets lead me on quite a chase throughout Detroit City with Billie and Dare’s struggle to survive the death planned for them. I was very impressed with Billie’s persona that she displayed to the world and how easy Dare was able to dispel it with words of kindness towards her. These two found themselves in unbelievable situations, but were able to solve each crime blamed on Billie.

Ms. Hogan really spun a great creative story plot that had me wondering about Billie’s distrust of people and when I found out what was going on, I had to quickly find my way to the end of this book to know the truth about why the villains sought Billie’s death so hard. The history given surrounding the characters are not as much as I would have liked, but enough to get a good impression. This is my first read for this author, but I’m looking forward to reading more from her in the future. Enjoy!
