YAYYY a brand new J. Kenner book / series!

This is book one in the Wicked standalone series - all books slighty connect to the Stark world! We met all 3 guys in previous books!

Wyatt is the grandson of a Hollywood legend, but he wants to make it on his own - without grandma's last name. And he's almost made it. His landscape and architectural photographs have become pretty famous these last few years, but now he has a huge project coming up. A series of 50 sensual photographs of amazingly beautiful women. But he needs one more perfect girl for the final 9 pictures. And no model agency has been able to give him this special little something girl.
But then she walks into his studio.
They girl who crushed his heart 12 years ago.
She desperately needs money for her brother, so her bestie lets her take over her audition.
But Wyatt is not happy to see her. He's still angry with her. But he's also still kind of in love with her - even after all these years. But he was hurt pretty badly by what happened back then.
But of course what he thinks happened back then, is not what really happended. And after what happended that night - so much more happened for Kelsey!!!
And even though she needs the money, she didn't know what kinds of pictures Wyatt needed - she's not sure she can do it.

What happens when the one who got away comes back?
Will there be a HEA?

GREAT story!
We have two amazing people. People who've been through so much in their life!
And we get to hear all about it! We're going back in time 12 years a few times, to see how they met and fell for each other. But we still don't really know what happened to pull them apart. It's all very mysterious and exciting and heartbreaking!
And what happens in the present is just as exciting, but also sexy and fun and cute ....
It's all so very adorable and heartbreaking and ugh. I just wanted to jump into the book and hug the hell out of both Wyatt and Kelsey!
Great new book! And now I can't wait to see what Lyle has to tell us in the next book!!!

WICKED GRIND was an amazingly sexy and adorable & heartbreaking 2nd-chance-romance! I loved it! Hurry to your nearest amazon for your own Wyatt - this one is MINE! 

ARC received for an honest review

More books in the kind-of-Stark Universe - woohoo!

I loved everything about Wicked Grind.  I adored our lovelies, Wyatt and Kelsey, I loved their story, gah I just wanted more.

Told in due POVs and in past and present tense, I felt like I fell in love with these characters twice.

This book has a bit of everything.  It made me laugh, but it made me cry.    It is sexy and sweet and full of love, but also oh so sad at times.  I just wanted to jump into the book and give everyone a big bear hug.

There are some fantastic secondary characters - I adore Kelsey's brother Griffin, and hope we get more of him in the future.

I loved the little glimpse we got of Nikki and Damien and Jackson and Sylvia. 

I don't want to give anything away, so just know that I was hooked on this book right from the start, and couldn't wait to turn each page to see where we were taken.

Can't wait for more.

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.
