What would have made Dirty Secret better?
The protagonist, Kennedy/Eva is a mess! She's a HORRIBLE spy/covert operative. Her love interest Nix, is perfect. Exactly what he's supposed to be. But the problem is, Nix susses Eva/Kennedy out in a matter of seconds, then blows her cover in under 24 hours. After that she just keeps making mistake after mistake after massive blunder. I'm sorry, but the feminist in me was just SHREIKING. I couldn't get past it. I was so disgusted by her ineptitude that I DNF's at 20-30%. ugh. If you don't mind picking up a spy/romance thrill where the female lead is a vapid, addled mistake ridden ninny , go for it. I just couldn't do it. Nope.
Would you ever listen to anything by Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert again?
Absolutely, I usually enjoy Chelle's writing, this one however missed the mark, by A LOT! Chelle, Chelle, Chelle, why oh why did you make your supposed female super spy a complete nit wit? Have you no faith in your own sex at all? We are so much more than a sum of our parts, my dear. Seriously.
Which character – as performed by Kirsten Leigh and Sebastian York – was your favorite?
I love love LOVE Sebastion York. and he did not disappoint here, Kristen Leigh, was really excellent here as well. But the weak, simpering female lead was just a total dud for me.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment and IRE. You know, the US actually has very effective, very powerful, very amazing female covert agents. Too bad the writers couldn't have referenced any of them when creating their portrayal of "Eva". For an example, Valerie Plame comes to mind. And let's not forget there haven't been a slew of powerful female sleuths in literature. I just don't know WHERE or HOW they went so wrong, but boy did they.
Any additional comments?
Wish I could get my money back. Der. But, thems the breaks, babe.

This was an entertaining story, full of action, suspense and lots of steamy romance. Kennedy aka Eva, and Nix were one unlikely pair; she was the agent, he was the hacker, but the chemistry and attraction between them was off the charts. I enjoyed plot, the twists, and liked how the authors weaved all the secrets, betrayal, lust and suspensions throughout the story. Kennedy's character was a little annoying. She was suppose to be this well trained secret agent but it seemed liked she kept getting herself into one dangerous situations after another, and Nix had to come to her rescue.
Dirty Secret was well worth the sale price, and I'll definitely be looking for more audios by either narrator.
