EXCERPT

“Kiss me,” he says, and I close my mouth over his, losing myself in the sensation of being body on body like this, so close I can’t tell if the heartbeat I’m feeling belongs to Ryan or me.

We move slowly at first, but there’s no holding back, and soon our motions are frenzied. Soon, he’s exploding inside me. Soon, I shatter in his arms.

“Oh, baby,” he murmurs when we’re sane again and he’s looking at my face with eyes filled with love. “You are so beautiful.”

I bend and kiss him—my heart overflowing. And I can’t help but think how different it is with Ryan than the men I’d been with before. Before, when a guy called me beautiful, I’d mentally cringed, at least a little.

Because the truth is, I am beautiful. It’s not an ego thing—it’s just an empirical fact. It’s useful, and I’ve definitely traded on it. But it’s not who I am. Not the heart of me. And in my life BR—

Before Ryan—whenever a guy called me beautiful, I never knew if he cared about me, or if he was just happy to have a pretty piece of a**.

With Ryan, I know without a doubt that he loves me. And the beauty he sees in me is more than what a camera sees.

He sees the whole woman. A lover, a friend. He sees a girl he can laugh with. That he can talk to. A woman to spend long, lazy nights with. A woman with hopes and dreams and fears and doubts.

He sees me. Jamie Archer. And that’s a really nice feeling.

“I love you,” I say, those little words just spilling out of me. “You’re the best thing that ever happened to me.”

The moment I say the words, though, I regret them. Not because they aren’t true—they are.

But because I can see the response on Ryan’s face, though he knows enough not to say the words out loud.

If that’s true, then why won’t you marry me?

Nikki pleases Damien in ‘Entice Me’ by J Kenner excerpt

julie_enticeme-full

Blurb

From New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner comes a sensually seductive novella starring fan favorites Damien Stark and his wife, Nikki Fairchild.

 

Includes a special preview of Anchor Me, the highly anticipated fourth full-length novel featuring Nikki & Damien as they begin the next chapter in their life together.

 

I didn’t understand passion until I met Damien, the man who turned my world upside down and swept me off my feet.

 

And though our life together feels perfect, we can’t escape our secrets–and the danger that continually threatens to surface.

 

But for one night, I seek a respite. A birthday wish for my husband, my lover, my friend—one absolutely perfect night.

 

It is my most ardent wish.

 

And I only hope that it will come true…

Review

What is that you get someone that has everything for his birthday? That is the problem that Nikki has for Damien. It is his birthday and of course he doesn’t want for anything. That is except for Nikki.

In this installment, another short novella in the series, we see Nikki do something that even she didn’t think that she could do, and that is surprise Damien. For me, I thought that she was going to blow the secret because Damien always knows when Nikki is hiding something from him.

While nothing CRAZY happens in this story, it does set up for something big to happen. We get a glimpse of someone from Nikki’s past that threatens everything that they are building. I hope that when we get to this part of the conflict that it’s going to come in the form of a full length novel because I sure miss this couple and these novellas are just teasing me.

Like the other shorts that J. Kenner wrote for the series, it offers a quick insight to the couple’s life and I know I am like the other fans where I can’t quite let them go. I love these novellas and I want more and more of them coming.

Excerpt

He bends down so that his lips graze my ear. “Dance for me, baby. Right now.”

”Is that what you want?” I ask. “To watch me dance? Because I have something else in mind.”

His brow rises. “Do you?”

“Mmm,” I say, then start humming as I pull out my phone and find my current favorite song on my workout playlist. A little fast. A little raunchy. A lot fun. I click the button to send it through our sound system, and when the music starts, I press my hand to Damien’s chest and jauntily strut forward, forcing him backward to the padded bench that is intended as a place to sit and wait for the elevator. Right now, I have a different purpose in mind.

“I’ll dance,” I say, doing a shimmy and pulling off my T-shirt in the process. “I’ll even do a stripper dance,” I add. “But I don’t do solo shows. I require full participation.”

“Do you?”

“Absolutely,” I say, turning around so that my back is to him as I shake and shimmy in time with the music and very, very slowly ease my skirt off.

When I turn around, I’m dressed only in my bra and panties, and though I should feel silly, I don’t. Maybe it’s the alcohol. Maybe it’s the lingering high from fucking him in the limo. Maybe it’s the heated way that he’s watching my every move.

Maybe it’s the simple fact that I love my husband.

Whatever the reason, I’m enjoying showing off, turning him on and getting turned on in the process. And as I think that, I slide one hand over my bra and the other down my abdomen to cup myself over my panties.

I have my eyes closed, and the music’s loud, but I still hear Damien’s sharp intake of breath. I figure that’s as good a cue as any, and I open my eyes and strut toward him, then reach out a hand to pull him up.

He complies, amused, and I do my own version of a pole dance, with Damien playing the role of my pole. Up and down, stroking and teasing, shimmying and shaking. It’s a little erotic and a little silly, and by the time I have my bra off and am about to step out of my panties, I’m both desperately wet and giggling furiously.

I bend over to untangle my panties from around my ankle, and when I do, my giggles turn to squeals as Damien scoops me up and tosses me over his shoulder. I pound uselessly on his back, then cry out when he pitches me unceremoniously onto the bed.

“What are you–?”

“Shhh.” He puts his finger over his mouth, then strips off his own clothes. And though he doesn’t add any dance moves, I can’t deny that I enjoy the show.

Slowly, he eases onto the bed and straddles me. “I liked your dance,” he says. “I like even more that you did it because I told you I wanted it.”

“Anything you want,” I whisper, my voice throaty. “You know that.”

“I want you,” he says, then brushes a kiss over my lips. “That’s all I’ve ever

But even Jackson’s protection may not be able to save us, because I know my husband well. And he will do whatever it takes—even if it means risking himself—in order to protect our family…

In this new novella series by J Kenner we get to see what happened with Damien and Nikki after they got married and before we see them again in Sylvia’s series. Of course things don’t always go according to plan and they will see if love can really conquer all.

The novellas were the perfect addition to the series as we get all the things that we love from the series and more. We get to see Nikki finally come to terms with her relationship with her mother as she finally is able to see the toxicity of their relationship. I loved how she handles it on her own and not let the hero take control (as it usually happens in romance novels). Nikki may be the damsel in distress at times, but she can still save herself when it counts.

We get to see a new side of Damien. We get to see him relax a little bit of his control as he really lets Nikki in and proves that while he may be the dominant it is him that’s the damsel in distress without Nikki. It’s a hard way to make Damien remain that domineering man who we all love and them make him have layers of weakness that get stronger with his love for Nikki.

I really enjoyed this novella and was glad that it enhanced the series instead of took away from it. Sometimes when novellas come out, they can be a waste and don’t offer anything for the series. It makes me think that it was done for the money. This one was made to make me think that Kenner really loves this series and wants the fans to see that they get their happy ever after.

J. Kenner is the New York Times bestselling author of Release Me, Claim Me, Complete Me, Wanted, Heated, Ignited, Say My Name, Under My Skin and the novellas “Take Me,” “Have Me,” and “Play My Game.” She spent more than ten years as a litigator in Southern California and central Texas, using her rare free time to indulge in her passion of writing. She lives in Texas with her husband and daughters.
