About Hottest Mess
The S.I.N. series continues with the seductive follow-up to the Stark International Novel Dirtiest Secret, from the New York Times bestselling author of “red-hot and angsty” fiction that “keeps readers guessing” (Publishers Weekly, on Under My Skin).
No one can know about our love—and hiding only makes it hotter.
Dallas Sykes has a reputation. He is known for his parties, his money, and the countless women on his arm. Yet the Dallas I know is a different man—darker, smarter, and unbearably sexy. Just one look from him can leave me breathless; the anticipation of his touch can make me lose control.
Inextricably bound by our past, we keep each other’s secrets. And while there are people who have the power to hurt us, it’s the truth that threatens us most of all.
Dallas can be mine only behind closed doors, our passion as searing as it is forbidden. Yet nothing in this world has ever felt so desperately, deliciously right.
Hottest Mess is intended for mature audiences.
Kim's 4 Star Review
Dallas Sykes and Jane Martin have a past that binds them together but can also rip them apart. I was gifted this novel in exchange for an honest review and as J Kenner gave us a hot and sexy romantic novel that pushes her readers to believe in love.
We get a glimpse of Jane and Dallas life not only what it was like as they were held captive but also what is they were like when they were younger. The bond that these two have is not only intense but is one that can’t be broken.
Jane may come off as a little mousey but when she truly believes in something she goes all out to protect them. Jane has tried most of her adult life to forget her feelings for the man who by adoption became her brother. Her feelings for him are far from brotherly and she knows that she can’t just move past her feelings so she’s ready to embrace them and make things work for them no matter what the cost is.
Dallas is an alpha male and Dom. He has the need to be in control and he loves the feel of it. After being kidnapped and tortured the only way Dallas could feel anything including anything to do with sex. Becoming a Dom gives him the needs to feel more but what he needs more than anything is the one woman who has had his heart since the day they met.
Hottest Mess will leave you breathless. J Kenner continues the hot, sexy story of Dallas and Jane lives that leave you fanning yourself. One thing she’s good at is drawing her readers in and making them feel everything her characters do and this book is no different. Her writing is amazing and pushes boundaries that leave you thinking Oh my and where can I find me a man like him. Both Dallas and Jane know it’s wrong to be together but no matter how hard they try to deny their feelings for each other it’s never going to work. The bond with each other is unbreakable and leaves you rooting for them. The impending news about Dallas’s kidnapping close to coming out and their little secret leaves these two not only stand up for themselves but fight for what they believe in. You have to admire them knowing what they will be up against but they still go after what they want. With this being the second book in the trilogy you know that you’ll be left with a cliff hanger that will leaves you anticipating the final novel in the series.

ABOUT DIRTIEST SECRET
From the New York Times bestselling author of such “racy, sizzling Stark novels” (RT Book Reviews) as Release Me and Say My Name comes the provocative first Stark International Novel—the beginning of the S.I.N. series.
It was wrong for us to be together, but it was even harder to be apart.
The memory of Dallas Sykes burns inside of me.
Everyone knows him as a notorious playboy, a man for whom women and money are no object. But to me, he’s still the one man I desperately crave—yet the one I can never have.
Dallas knows me better than anyone else. We bear the same scars, the same darkness in our past. I thought I could move on by staying away, but now that we’re drawn together once more, I can’t fight the force of our attraction or the temptation to make him mine.
We’ve tried to maintain control, not letting ourselves give in to desire. And for so long we’ve told ourselves no—but now it’s finally time to say yes.
Dirtiest Secret is intended for mature audiences.
