Review – Wicked Grind by J. Kenner

Wicked Grind by J. Kenner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Second chance romances are my weakness. J Kenner’s sensual and sweet second chance romance, Wicked Grind, was MY KRYPTONITE.There is nothing as passionate and powerful than two former lovers rekindling that flame and two broken souls becoming whole again. Shiver-me-sexy meets sugary-sweet in Wicked Grind, a second chance romance that SEDUCES with every word.

I DEVOURED Wicked Grind that quickly became MY SWEET ADDICTION. Wicked Grind hums with DESIRE. This COLLISION of childhood lovers was my SWEET ACHE and I could not turn the pages fast enough. I LOVED the hero and heroine, and their UNDENIABLE attraction so much!

Wyatt is a tall, dark, built, and sexy world famous photographer whose work is edgy and enticing. Wyatt is fire-hot and I could not help but MELT!!! When his work collides with his personal life in the form of beautiful Kelsey, his childhood sweetheart, it’s one crash that may cause one or both of them to get burned.

I SMOLDERED as the fireworks ignited from these former flames as the words fused with fire. This couple is the perfect match. I felt their connection surge through the pages. The sexual tension and poignant past between Kelsey and Wyatt GRIPPED ME HARD where I was GLUED to their sizzling story.

“Can you handle knowing I’ll see you raw and vulnerable? And not just see you. Do you understand that I’m the one who’s going to take you there?”

I SWOONED as the sorrow mixed with sweetness hit my heart hard.

“I’m invisible.”

“You’re not invisible to me.”

I SWEATED from the powerful push and pull of this story that tugged my heart in every direction.

“You know my conditions. Now ask yourself what you want. And then ask yourself how much you want it.”

J. Kenner is the queen of seduction and oh did Wicked Grind SEDUCE EVERY OUNCE OF ME!!! With writing as smooth as silk with strength in spades, a sweet and sexy hero, and a soulful second-chance romance, I was a GONER!!! I was so sunk into this love story…hook…line…sinker!!!

With its undeniable chemistry and unparalleled intensity, Wicked Grind is PURE INTOXICATION. I LOVED this ENTICING ESCAPE!!! While this story is tied to the spellbinding Stark world, Wicked Grind is fresh and fiercely stands on its own. Wicked Grind is one WILD RIDE! This love story is POWER and PASSION in words, and I am panting for more.

Even in my fantasies, I can’t bring myself to give us a happily ever after.

Sometimes it feels so damn good to be bad

Photographer Wyatt Royce’s career is on the verge of exploding. All he needs is one perfect model to be the centerpiece of his sexy, controversial show. Find her, and Wyatt is sure to have a winner.

Then Kelsey Draper walks in. Stunning. Vibrant. And far too fragile for a project like this. Wyatt should know—after all, he remembers only too well why their relationship ended all those years ago.

Determined to break free from her good girl persona, Kelsey wants spice. Adventure. And she’s certain that Wyatt is just the man to help.

But when Wyatt agrees to give her the job only if he has complete control—on camera and in his bed—Kelsey can’t help but wonder if she’s in too deep. Because how can a good girl like her ever be enough for a man like Wyatt?

All Wicked novels stand alone

J.Kenner (aka Julie Kenner) is the New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal and #1 International bestselling author of over seventy novels, novellas and short stories in a variety of genres.

Though known primarily for her award-winning and international bestselling erotic romances (including the Stark and Most Wanted series) that have reached as high as #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, JK has been writing full time for over a decade in a variety of genres including paranormal and contemporary romance, “chicklit” suspense, urban fantasy, and paranormal mommy lit.

JK has been praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a “flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations” and by RT Bookclub for having “cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them.” A five time finalist for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA award, JK took home the first RITA trophy awarded in the category of erotic romance in 2014 for her novel, Claim Me (book 2 of her Stark Trilogy). Her Demon Hunting Soccer Mom series (as Julie Kenner) is currently in development with AwesomenessTV/Awestruck.

Her books have sold over three million copies and are published in over twenty languages.

In her previous career as an attorney, JK worked as a clerk on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and practiced primarily civil, entertainment and First Amendment litigation in Los Angeles and Irvine, California, as well as in Austin, Texas. She currently lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and two rather spastic cats.
