“Maybe Ash Dunne isn’t as bad as everyone thinks he is.”
Review: ARC provided in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, NetGalley, LA Casey and Montlake Romance for the opportunity.
Ryan Mahony is a good girl. She lives a privileged and sheltered life in the countryside of Ireland until her father, a former barrister, is sent to prison. Ashley Dunn is a bad boy. He is a member of the Disciples, one of Dublin’s most notorious gangs and has a ruthless reputation. When Ryan goes to live with her aunt and cousin in their urban estate, her path unexpectedly crosses with Ash and sparks fly. The more time she spends with Ash, the more Ryan begins to believe that maybe Ash isn’t really a bad boy at all. He’s just a guy in a bad situation.
LA Casey’s classic tale of a good girl falling for a bad boy was delightful. I loved how the narrative was funny yet really emotional. Many of the characters had loss in their lives and as a reader, I was able to really feel for them no matter their situations. My Little Secret’s plot was not all romance either, which is always a pleasant bonus. The story has a few mysteries and is a little suspenseful too. One of my favorite parts without spoiling the story was the reveal of Mr. Nobody. I did not see the identity coming and I must praise LA Casey for such a curve ball.
I had only one issue with the novel and that was getting used to reading the Irish dialect. As an American, I struggled a little with it. However, once you get out your comfort zone, it will be smooth sailing. I promise.
Recommendation: I recommend this book. And if you want another read by LA Casey, read Until Harry. I give it 4 stars!
