4 outta 5 stars!
Blurb: I’ve long dreamed of my fairy tale wedding, but it wasn’t until I met Damien Stark—who captured me with his kisses and undid me with his touch—that I began to believe it was my destiny. Though we both carry secrets and scars, our shared passion heals us, binding us together. We have surrendered to each other completely, and our mutual ecstasy is the brightest light in my life. But darkness still snakes through the cracks in our armor. Ghosts from our past have moved in, bringing fresh pain that cuts deep and threatens to destroy everything we hold dear. Damien is my anchor to this world, and I am his. But if we are going to keep each other, we have to fight the shadows of our pasts to move forward into our future.
I was so excited to see on Goodreads that J. Kenner was doing a novella of Damien & Nikki’s wedding. I loved the Stark Trilogy. There is mystery, drama – and above all else? HOT-AS-FUCK sex scenes that leave little to the imagination. Damien is controlling – rich as hell – and has secrets that we all get to dive deep into throughout the trilogy. But when the third book left us with an engagement and NO WEDDING?!?! I was disappointed. But luckily Kenner didn’t leave us stranded.
We pick up where we left off – Damien and Nikki are living blissfully happy planning their wedding which is coming sooner than Nikki is prepared for. There’s anxiety over every little detail – accept the big one – spending the rest of her life with the man she loves.
Her mother pops up and becomes an old aged problem. Leaving Nikki reeling for something sharp, to scratch at her old itch…. but as always, Damien is there to heal her.
The novella was beautifully written – as are all her books. And she gave us quite a few surprises… happy ….. sexy ones.
I’ll miss these two – do your self a favor and check out her trilogy!
