You haven't read any of the Stark Books yet?? o.O
It's not really neccessary - (but why wouldn't you want to read all those amaaaaazing books? ☺) -
but you should read PLAY MY GAME before starting with this series - because we're being introduced to Jackson in Damien & Nikki's Valentine's Novella ☺

5 Stars

Jackson Steele and Sylvia Brooks are back in the powerful finale of a provocative, sizzling-hot new erotic trilogy set in the world of J. Kenner’s beloved Stark novels: Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me.

He’s the only man I’ve ever loved, and the one man I can’t bear to lose.

Jackson Steele is my light in this world. Charismatic, bold, and always in control, he knows what he wants and how to get it—and absolutely nothing stands in his way. His hold on me is magnetic, his claim on me complete, his kiss my ultimate escape.

We both harbor dark secrets that could tear our lives apart. Though we’ve tried to bury our pasts, there are certain people who won’t let us forget. But the closer danger comes, the brighter the fire between us burns—our ecstasy consuming and soothing us both.

There’s no telling what lies ahead, but I know that Jackson never gives in without a fight. I’d do anything he wants to keep him safe, give him anything he needs. And now that we’re in deep, nothing can make me run.

Alright, finally back with Jackson & Sylvia for one last time ☺
At the end of the second book, Jackson & Sylvia had just arrived in Santa Fe - Jackson wanted to start proceedings to become Ronnie's dad legally and officially. But unfortunately the police showed up, telling us that that idiot Reed had been killed, and that Jackson is the main suspect.
That means back to Beveryl Hills to talk to lawyers and police.

Lots of problems still to overcome until our darlings can get their HEA:
Paparazzi - Jeremiah Stark - whoever is sabotaging the island project - the real killer (or did Jackson really kill him?) - Sylvia's dad & brother - et cetera.....

What will happen to Sylvia & Jackson?
Will there be a HEA?
Will everybody die at the end?
Or will there be a horrible Cliffhanger?

I'm not telling you that of course ☺




I loooved the first 2 books so much, and this final book in the series did not disappoint for one second!!!

We pick up right where On Your Knees ended... and we're not nearly at our HEA yet...
Lots of very exciting things happen - frustrating things - suspensy things - moving things - sad things - funny things .... Damien Stark things  ... and - my favorite.... SEXY THINGS!!!!!!

This series is just soooo effing erotic!!! Phew!!!!
And Jackson with his little girl???? #Adorablicious

I loved every second of this final book in the series.

The story here and there reminded me a lot of the 3rd Damien book - with the trial etc. - but pfff - didn't bother me at all.

UNDER MY SKIN was an extremely erotic and moving & adorable & exciting romance. About secrets, about the past & the future, about family & friends, about having and giving-up control, about love & hate & forgiveness....and MURDER!!!

...and even if the story wouldn't be interesting at all - you still don't want to miss reading it - you'll sooo fall in love with Jackson Steele too☺ ☺ ☺

Now please hurry Julie - with whatever you're writing now - I NEEEEED to read it asap!


ARC received from publisher via Netgalley for an honest review

Jackson Steele is back baby, and I couldn't be happier!  We were left on a cliffy at the end of book 2, and there is still so much I need to know.

Thankfully, Ms Kenner does not leave us hanging in this final installment of Jackson and Sylvia's story. They were so close but so far from their HEA at the end of On My Knees, I just didn't know how she was going to bring it all together.

But I should not have been worried at all about it, as Under My Skin was amazing.  Our lover's story was never, ever going to be an easy journey to a happily ever after, but the twists and turns this final installment took blew me away.  

We have suspense, love, laughter, and of course sexy times.  Ms Kenner gives good sexy times!  But most of all, I loved how through it all, Jackson and Sylvia loved.  Love each other, loved their friends, loved family (that deserved their love).

And I adored that we got more of the man that got me into reading J. Kenner books, Damien Stark.  There were a couple of parallels between Damien and Jackson's story that I feel tied them and their stories a little closer together.

It is always a sad day when I get to the end of a J. Kenner series - it just makes me very impatient for more.

So Julie, I hope we don't have too long to wait for your next series.

J. Kenner (aka Julie Kenner) is the New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal and 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, Victorian-era thrillers (coming soon), and paranormal mommy lit.
Her foray into the latter, Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom by Julie Kenner, has been consistently in development in Hollywood since prior to publication. Most recently, it has been optioned by Warner Brothers Television for development as series on the CW Network with Alloy Entertainment producing.
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 swopn for him.” A three 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 books have sold well over a million copies and are published in over over twenty countries.
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.
