5.0 out of 5 stars Leto delivers fire in a new series
Julie Leto has been one of the top writers to emerge from Harlequin's Blaze line.
She is a sassy, sexy author that loves people, loves her characters. She likes to dance on the razor thin edge of the envelope, is unflinching in her sexuality of those characters, so you could see Leto would soon want to spread her wings and walk on the wild side with a wee bit more...

3.0 out of 5 stars Really good idea but didn't grab attention.
The idea behind the story was a good one but the depth of the main characters was a bit weak and the big film scenes were a bit rushed. However an easy read. Hope the second book builds more on the characters.

Julie Leto has been one of the top writers to emerge from Harlequin's Blaze line.
She is a sassy, sexy author that loves people, loves her characters. She likes to dance on the razor thin edge of the envelope, is unflinching in her sexuality of those characters, so you could see Leto would soon want to spread her wings and walk on the wild side with a wee bit more 'elbow room'. She gets it with this Downtown Press title Dirty Little Secrets. On the ARC (Advanced Reading Copy) I received, it has a neat red and black Chit Lit style cover. I see they have updated it to give you a female James Bond feel. Whatever the cover, the package within is dynamite!
Leto is launching a new series, featuring a sexy, kick (...), Latina bounty hunter. She is not the stay at home Chiquita, but loves danger and chases it with a passion. She is also passionate about ex-boyfriend Francisco Vega. She hasn't seen her old love for ten years. A broken heart that never healed, sees her going after Frankie when he skips out on bail. Now, he's in the cross-hairs of her target for more reasons than one. She tracks him down to one of their old haunts, a Tampa dance club, and sets about to seduce the lad into her clutches.
Only, Frankie is on his own agenda. He's world is dangerous, deadly, as he moved through the underworld of arm dealers, killers and dirty dealings on the major level. Marisela is a complication he didn't need, only there is no shaking her. Not that he really wants to, mind you. So Marisela is pulled into Frankie's shady side of town, she has to prove there is more than one way to get her man.
This book sizzles with Leto's sharp writing. However, fans of Leto, understand this is not typical romance. This is adventure series where manhunting is literal!! The romance between Marisela and Frankie is typical Leto singe your fingers because the pages are too hot, but this is not category romance.
Kudos for gusty Leto for stepping up to the challenge and leaving the safe nest of Harlequin Blaze to deliver this outstanding novel!

4.0 out of 5 stars Latino Kick Ass Mamacita!, 24 April 2013

This review is from: Dirty Little Secrets: Sexy Suspense (Dirty Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed Dirty Little Secrets. It's an easy, entertaining read with a really likeable main character. Marisela is a smoking hot Latino babe with an appetite for danger and an even bigger one for her old flame Frankie. Frankie is a sexy bad boy with a dubious past and no sooner have their paths crossed again, than Marisela finds herself accompanying him on a dangerous mission for one of his associates. The plot is not particularly complex and you'll hardly be trembling with anticipation for the next chapter, but it flows quite nicely and has some pretty good action scenes. Marisela is fearless, doesn't suffer fools gladly, says exactly what she thinks and even though she's definitely no bimbo, she can expertly use her sexuality to get what she wants. The sex scenes are sometimes a little cheesy, repetitive and unrealistic. Marisela and Frankie only have to glance at each other and they want to tear each others clothes off. However, on the whole, this is a decent attempt at a fast paced action thriller, as long as you're not looking for anything too clever.

The author writes well and the story-line is very smooth. The series is very readable and I can't wait to read the third book.

Waste of money - can't believe someone actually got paid to write this - I am no prude but this was boring, boring, boring.
