From New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner comes a tantalizing ebook novella starring fan favorites Damien Stark and his wife, Nikki Fairchild. Deepest Kiss follows the couple from their island resort to their home in Los Angeles, and introduces Dallas Sykes, the seductive bad boy in the newest Stark International Novel, Dirtiest Secret—the first book in a new trilogy of the S.I.N. series.
Includes a special preview of J. Kenner’s provocative new novel, Dirtiest Secret!
My love for Damien Stark runs deep, and my need for his touch runs even deeper. He’s my shelter in this world, my light when everything seems dark, and all it takes is one kiss for my body to come alive.
Yet no matter where we go, our secrets threaten to surface. Someone dangerous from my past is back to stir up trouble, and now it feels like there’s nowhere I can hide.
I know Damien will always protect me, that our fierce desire will give us strength. In his arms I find safe harbor—and the sweetest release.
While I loved all the other Stark novellas this one is a little bit more special because instead of giving me my fill of Damien and Nikki it made me want more. At the end of the novella things are going so well and that makes me want to see what happens next. I know there is more to come since there are still some questions that haven't been answered and someone's identity to be found. Maybe that will happen in Dallas's book which is coming next.
Speaking of Dallas's book, there is a preview of it at the end of the story and that's the only bad thing about the book. I didn't really need to see him almost having sex with another woman who is probably not going to be the heroine before he is interrupted. That got me in a very sour mood for his book. So far J. Kenner hasn't disappointed me and I hope she won't do it now with Dallas's book.
The big twist in the story seemed a little predictable to me, but I hope the readers will enjoy it. I liked how the author worked things out. Damien and Nikki are my favorite couple from the Stark universe and I always love seeing them together.
I have finally come to terms with the fact that they won't have a child anytime soon, but after reading what I did there is still some hope inside of me about it.
Overall, this is another great novella in the series, which the fans will love. The bonus story of Sylvia and Jackson that's available for download is a great treat for the reader. I was happy because in Deepest kissed plenty of the characters from the stark universe appeared
“You wouldn’t,” I say, though I can’t keep the genuine worry out of my voice.
I shake my head, trying to appear more certain than I feel.
“Because that wouldn’t just punish me. It would torture you, too.”
“It would,” he agrees. “And while I’m not usually averse to self-sacrifice for a good cause--and,” he adds as his eyes skim over my body, “you are a very good cause--tonight I have something else in mind. Take off your jeans, baby. Take off everything and get on the floor. I want you at my mercy.”
“I’m always at your mercy,” I say as I begin to comply, and from the gleam in his eyes, it’s clear that he knows it.
“You are,” he says, a softness sneaking in to dull the sharp edge of his voice. “As much as I’m at yours. But I’ve been thinking about you all day, hot and naked and wet for me. And tonight I’m taking what I want. And baby? I promise you’re going to enjoy it.”
I’m on the floor now, my clothes abandoned, and I whimper a little as his words caress me, making my nipples peak and my clit throb. I have absolutely no doubt he’s right. But enjoy is to mild a term. Whatever he has planned, I’m going to fucking love it.
“Roll over and get on your knees,” he demands as he unbuttons his shirt, then tosses it aside.
I do as he says, then look over my shoulder to see him, looking magnificent with his broad shoulders and tight abs. He’s strong and lean and hard, and there’s no question that he used to be an elite athlete. I don’t care about tennis at the moment, though. On the contrary, right then all I want to do is taste every delicious inch of him.
