Review: Dirty Secret ( The Burke Brothers Book 1) by Emma Hart

Conner Burke never expected Sofie Callahan to come back.

Where she’s been for the last two and half years is a mystery, and so is the reason she left in the first place. Now, though, she’s back in their hometown of Shelton Bay, South Carolina, at the same time Conner’s band Dirty B. is home on a tour break.

Sofie Callahan has spent the months since her father’s death avoiding anything to do with her hometown. But with her brother in Afghanistan, she has no choice but to return and sort out her father’s house, even if it means facing the boy she fell in love with and revealing the reason she left.

Conner has questions, and when his broken heart and her guilty one collide, Sofie has to start answering them. Their present is rocky, their future unknown. Only one thing is certain: Sofie’s daughter will change everything.

4 Dirrtty Stars!

Review by Natasha Gentile

Conner Burke never expected Sofie Callahan to come back. 

When Sofie has to go back to her hometown of Shelton Bay to take care of her late father's house, little does she know that she will be running into no other than her ex Conner Burke!  Seems Mr. Burke is there on his tour break.  Oh by the way..He’s a rock star!!!

And I stare at the muscles wrapped in a blue polo shirt, a Samoan tattoo curving around one of those muscled biceps.  Broad shoulders and messy brown hair styled to look just-f*cked.  A jaw dusted with light stubble, lips set into a thin line, and dark blue eyes so angry they’re practically on fire.
Connor Burke. 

Ummmm I’m not sure I’m understanding why you would have left in the first place?  So now he’s there, she’s back. Oh and their sexual chemistry..It’s still there… 

He’s barely turned to face me when his hands are cupping the sides of my face and his lips are on mine.  The kiss is hard and angry, the rough way his mouth moves against mine almost a punishment.  His fingers tangle in my hair, keeping me against him.  I fist the sides of his shirt, taking this sudden assault, as tears burn my eyes.

Just one little problem. She has a secret.  It’s kind of a big one, but a small thing..something she can’t hide, no matter what.  She’s about 2 ½ with his eyes and Sofie's smile. That’s right Sophie had a baby girl, just one problem she didn’t tell anyone. Not one person, so Connor, well he is pissed, he is so mad that she would do this to him, he doesn’t understand why she would do this.  When push comes to shove, will Sophie finally admit why she went and hid the baby?

Not only is this secret front and center; the press has gotten hold of this secret.  When this hits the fan, will they be able to put the past behind them and protect each other and their little girl?  

Although I liked this book, I found a few things hard to connect to-I didn't understand how a two year old could call Connor "dada" because she’s seen his pictures on television. It seemed the strong bond with him was a little far fetched.  The other thing that bothered me, was that the baby had no problem sleeping away from her mother; when all she has known in her short life, is her mother. Other than those things, Dirty Secret was an enjoyable read.
