Restrained Under His Duty (Dirty Little Secrets #3) by Stacey Kennedy 

An uninhibited politician’s daughter falls for her loyal bodyguard behind closed doors in this scandalous novel from the USA Today bestselling author of Bound Beneath His Pain and Tied to His Betrayal.

As the chief of security for a prominent senator, Ryder Blackwood is stunned when an anonymous source sends him a compromising photo of his boss’s twenty-five-year-old daughter getting down and dirty in an underground sex club. If it gets out, the media firestorm could ruin her father. More troubling for Ryder is how arousing he finds the whole situation. He’s known Hadley Winters since she was a kid. And now she’s the woman in all his most private fantasies.

Wild behavior helps Hadley get through those painful, lonely nights, but she’s been waiting a long time for a man like Ryder to protect her from herself. Ryder is raw. He’s real. And he makes her feel safe. Now that they’ve both become pawns in a blackmailer’s dangerous game, there’s more at stake than her father’s political career. As the intimate threats tear apart a tender new love, Hadley is forced to trust Ryder with her life—and her heart.

4 out of 5 stars

This was such an exciting story! I was pulled in right away to the push and pull between Ryder and Hadley and I loved the element of mystery involved. It was awesome and I was hooked!

Hadley and Ryder had such amazing chemistry and I loved that building sexual tension between them. I liked the back and forth they had going on as feelings are fought. It made for some tense, heated moments. I really liked learning their backgrounds and the build to the story as everything developed. I loved them opening up and sharing as well.

I thought the writing was great. It's got an edge-of-your-seat build happening, lots of heat and intriguing characters. There is drama and emotion in play but it isn't overly deep, just the right amount to pull you in. This has been a really good series and I've enjoyed all the guys and I'm excited for what's to come next in the final book. I really liked the hook in the epilogue making me want to jump right in to Cuffed by His Charm.

This was a thrilling story that kept me on my toes with just the right amount of suspense mixed in. I really liked the characters, their back and forth and the want and need they had for one another. There was a great build, a lot of heat, drama and emotion. This had everything I enjoy in story: a bit of playfulness, great characters, a lot of sexy (so hot!), excellent drama, and perfect build that had me on the edge of my seat.
