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

• Book #1 SAY MY NAME  
• Book #2 ON MY KNEES 

5 Stars

I’ve never been happier than I am with Jackson Steele. But I should know better than anyone that happiness always comes at a price...

My life with Jackson is nothing short of perfection. He is my love, my husband, the one man in all the world who makes me feel alive and whole. Our careers are on track. Our family is growing. And the ghosts of our past have been vanquished
or so I believed.

When a wonderful night of sensuality and passion following a masquerade ball turns dark with the news that haunting, horrible photographs of me have surfaced, my old fears and insecurities threaten to knock me down, and it is only within Jackson’s arms that I find the strength to endure.

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 himselfin order to protect our family...

Contains a bonus Steele Short Story, Steal My Heart!

We're back with Jackson and Sylvia!!
You should read their trilogy before reading this novella!

The baby is one year old now, and Sylvia's dad is about to be released from prison. (Julie put the Baby short story at the end of this novella, if you haven't read it yet, you could/should read it before starting this book, because it happens about a year earlier obviously ☺)
Remember? Her dad killed the guy who abused her as a kid...
But Sylvia is not yet sure if she's ready to forgive her dad for his role back then.
And also, those photos the dead bastard took are still out there somewhere....
All those problems are bothering Sylvia terribly. But Jackson is by her side always.....



I just loved it.
 What's not to love about more Jackson Steele? And we even got some Dallas and the star of the new series Wyatt! Lots of amazing guys to lust over! ☺

For such a little story we have LOTS of very sexy moments and some very moving and cute and funny and exciting and mysterious and sad moments too!

I loved every single minute of it and I can't wait to read the next full-length Stark book about Damien and Nikki in April!!! ANCHOR ME!

TAKE MY DARE was the perfect little addition to the amazing Sylvia & Jackson saga! Erotic & adorable & mysterious & exciting!!! A must read for fans of the Stark world!

ARC received for an honest review

This Jackson and Sylvia novella sure packs a punch for a little story!

So much has happened/is happening to our lovelies since the end of their trilogy.

If you remember the trilogy, you will remember that Sylvia's dad is in gaol for killing the guy that abused her as a kid.  Well, just when you think that is the end of all that - you thought wrong!

It is quite an emotional short story, when I laughed, I cried, I wanted to throw my kindle across the room in anger... but most of all I felt love for Jackson and Sylvia and their little family.

Now I am impatiently waiting for Damien and Nikki's next installment.

Stalk Julie on:

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.
