Tied to His Betrayal

Tied to His Betrayal (Dirty Little Secrets #2) by Stacey Kennedy




In a dazzling novel of passion and power from the bestselling author of Bound Beneath His Pain and the Club Sin series, a commanding man gives up his most prized possession to win back the one that got away.

Darius Bennett can’t live without supreme control. A self-made billionaire, he’s rich enough to get anything—and any woman—he wants, yet he’s still haunted by a broken relationship. Five years ago, Darius let Taylor Erikson go because he knew he could never give her what she truly wanted: his heart. But the moment Taylor walks back into his life, bruised and beaten, Darius blames himself. To make good on his betrayal, he vows to help her heal—in and out of the sheets.

Once upon a time, Darius was Taylor’s world. Now his fierce embrace is exactly what she needs to get back on her feet. But Taylor pays a heavy price for her sizzling nights with Darius. As the emotional ties become stronger than ever and the paparazzi hunt her down for their next juicy story, Taylor must face some hard truths. They can’t go back. And to move forward, the key to loving Darius isn’t about keeping his secrets—it’s about exposing them.

Tied to His Betrayal is intended for mature audiences.




4 out of 5 stars


The second story in the Dirty Little Secrets series did not disappoint. Hot and sexy with a bit of mystery and a whole lot of emotion. Awesome read!


I really enjoyed the evolution of Darius and Taylor's relationship. They had so many ups and downs and struggles. I thought they had good character development even though it wasn’t super in depth, and I enjoyed learning their history together and their back stories. Darius is such a complicated man and I didn't get all of his choices or motivations behind them right away, but by the end, I totally understood and was a well of emotion when he finally opens up. I really liked Taylor and her strength. She was going through such a hard time and had a lot to work through but I liked her perseverance.


I liked Darius and Taylor’s chemistry and heat and hotness, and the draw they had to one another, it made their reconnecting pretty instant. More than that though, there was a level of caring there that was super sweet. I liked them but they both frustrated me as they were fighting their feelings, some making me a bit crazy with their back and forth but I love how they got there in the end giving me a great HEA.


The writing is really good, interesting characters and a great storyline. I thought this was a fast paced story, not super in depth but enough to really pull you in. There is a nice added element of intrigue and mystery that’s happening as well with Darius and his friends that is continuing throughout the overall story line keeping me guessing. I'm excited to see where that will go. The front half felt slightly drawn out to me but the second half had a great pace. There are great descriptions, awesome build to the HEA, a lot of emotion, and a nice amount of heat. Great read.

Bound Beneath His Pain

Bound Beneath His Pain (#1) - Amazon | My Review



Have you read Stacey Kennedy before? I found her years ago and she’s become a favorite of mine. If not, I highly recommend her Club Sin Series. Claimed is the first book in that series and the first book I read by this author and I’ve been hooked ever since.
