He uses his bad-boy persona as a shield

until she gets past his defenses…

After years in seclusion, music megastar Griff O’Hare is about to reboot his career. Performing at Ryder International’s elite charity ball will rehabilitate his tattered reputation. But Kinga Ryder-White, who’s managing the ball, is wary of risking its success on a charismatic, but unreliable, hell-raiser. She’s the most uptight woman he’s ever met—and the only one who makes him lose control. After a searing night of passion, will Griff risk revealing the secrets of his bad reputation?


Opposites attract in the kick-off to Joss Wood’s brand new Dynasties: DNA Dilemma series and it was highly entertaining! SECRETS OF A BAD REPUTATION is fast paced and attention grabbing from start to finish. I enjoyed the characters and though there were a lot of unknowns left up in the air that I hope will flesh out later in the series, I felt satisfied with the story. The biggest thing I felt was lacking was not even getting to see the ball play out, or tie-ups of her problems from the past but maybe that too is coming in the next book. Overall a great kick-off to the series and highly enjoyable.

Griff is a sweetheart and I loved getting to see him redeemed in the world’s eyes.

Kinga is self-assured and accomplished and I enjoyed seeing her fall for Griff. I can’t wait to learn more about the family secrets.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys family drama mixed into an intense romance.
