Jennifer Echols is a master at writing amazing contemporaries in YA, and without a doubt, Dirty Little Secret was one of those. She easily blends the elements of the south along with music, romance, and a main character, Bailey who is struggling with her broken heart. Dirty Little Secret was my first Jennifer Echols novel, and I already know it won't be my last :)
The southern charm in Dirty Little Secret was done well. I was so easily absorbed in Bailey world of doubt and a broken heart, it was honest. She plays the fiddle and lives in Nashville, thrown away by her family to support the success of her sister Julie who's out to become a big name star. But meeting Sam when playing fiddle in the mall, escalates into a romance Bailey doesn't know she should keep on going. Between the gigs, Bailey's choices, and the southern charm I honestly loved Dirty Little Secret with it's relatable and comical characters but also the dirty little secrets about a broken heart too.
The chemistry between was Bailey and Sam was all over the place. Like in one scene we see them getting close and by close I mean really close then after Bailey says something, Sam starts getting mad and yells at Bailey. I was honestly was so mad for this happening! Why couldn't either one get a grip on their emotions?? But it also had the realness factor that I knew Echols had benneth all of it. The scenes Bailey and Sam shared in gigs or just hanging out were light and so fun to read. They each have a great personality that shines in every page.
Dirty Little Secret proved to me that this won't be my last Echols book. Echols blends in southern charm, hints of swoonful romance, and about finding those dirty little secrets to fix a heart. Perfect for summer and fans, be sure to pick up Dirty Little Secret, you won't regret it!
