Wyatt and Kelsey have a second chance at first love




WickedGrind_Ecover_FINAL_RSometimes 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?

What do you do when the one that broke your heart as a teenager crashed back in your life and demands for a job?
You get revenge of course.

Well that’s all well and good but those pesky feelings get into the way. Let’s face it you know that Wyatt and Kelsey were going to find their way back to one another. That is not a bad thing. You get to see the back and forth of whether or not Wyatt can really ‘punish’ her and of course the truth about what happened when they were teens. This is the part of the story that keeps you intrigued from start until you find out and it’s not exactly what you thought it would be.

Kelsey is a strong character outside of her relationship with Wyatt. She sacrifices so much of her personal life for her brother (granted it’s mostly for guilt) but still important to take into consideration. But when she is with Wyatt she is that teenage girl who can’t believe that the cool guy is talking to her. While some may consider this ‘weak’ I think that it makes her real. When you forget to live the life you want and you run into the thing that made you live before, it’s hard not to return back to that time in your life.

What I love about books from J. Kenner is the love scenes, the romance. While this book does cover a love story, it doesn’t really have the love scenes that help entice the romance. I’m so used to those passionate cat and mouse games like from Damien and Nikki or Jackson and Sylvia. Unfortunately, it’s not that in depth in this book and it made me a little disappointed.

This is the first book of another spin off from Stark International and looks to cover a new couple for each book which is nice so you don’t have to worry about those pesky book cliffhangers.



julie-j-kenner-author-photoJ.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.
