4.5 Stars
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author J. Kenner comes a new story in her Stark Ever After series

Each day with Damien is a miracle, each moment with our children a gift. And yet I cannot escape the growing sense that a storm is gathering, threatening to pull me away, to rip us apart. To drag me down, once again, into a darkness to which I swore never to return.

I have to fight itI know that. And I am waging the battle with of all my heart. But it is Damien who is my strength, and we both know that the only way to push away the darkness is for him to fold me in his arms and claim me completely. And for me to surrender myself, once again, to the fire that burns between us.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

EEEEEP!!! Nikki and Damien Stark are back with another little Novella!

 I hope this will keep on happening until the end of times! ☺

In this little book we have Nikki busy with a new App and with the kids. And something is troubling Damien - he tells Nikki it's work, but she doesn't really believe it.
She's surprising him with a little weekend getaway to San Francisco - but things will not go they way she planned!!! ☺

This was the perfect little addition for all fans of Damien and Nikki!
I hope we'll get a new one every other month for ever and ever and ever!

This one was realllly short - only 70% of the book was the story, the rest was other stuff - but it was a sweet, sexy, adorable and exciting little thing! I just adore D+N as parents! I want more of that - and we'll get more of that. There's a full-length novel coming soon and another one and a novella next year! YESSSS!

We also meet someone again in PLEASE ME who will be part of the new Stark Security Trilogy!!!

I never ever want to say goodbye to the Stark world! 

PLEASE ME was another adorable & sexy & exciting little #MustRead about Nikki & Damien!! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Damien - this one is MINE! 

4.9 Stars because it was waaay too short to get my Damien fix! ☺

ARC received for an honest review

Yessssss!  I love diving back into Stark World.  I just can't get enough of Damien, Nikki and their brood.

Please Me is a short, quick read that I devoured in no time at all.  I will take every scrap of N & D that Ms Kenner will give us.

I am just hoping for the day that someone isn't out to get them lol

I love seeing our darlings with their growing family, their extended family and friends. (I neeeeeed more of Ryan and Jamie ASAP!)

There is more great set up for the Stark Security Series- which I can't wait to get my hand on.

There was only one thing wrong with this novella - it was still too short!

To quote Britney - give me more, give me give me more!


I close the door behind me, intending to return to the bedroom. Instead, I go outside. I pour another glass from the second bottle Jamie and I opened, then settle onto the chaise lounge and look up, letting myself get lost in the stars that blanket the moonless sky.
I don’t hear him, but I know when Damien steps onto the patio. The scent of him. The subtle shift in the air, as if Damien Stark truly is the force of nature I sometimes believe him to be. Mostly, though, I am simply attuned to him, and he to me. Of course, I know he’s there. Just as I knew that he would come.
I turn my head and let myself breathe him in, this man the gods must have made just for me. He’s strong and powerful and walks with confidence. His strides are long and straight, and his goal is clear—me.
When he reaches my chaise, he sits on the edge of it near my hip, then takes my hand in his. I’m still wearing the bathing suit I put on to lounge with Jamie, covered by a simple, lacey pull-over. It eased up when I sat, and now Damien’s slacks brush the bare skin of my thigh, making me hyperaware of our connection.
Damien lifts our joined hands, then kisses my knuckles. “Do you want to tell me what’s wrong?”
My eyes dart to his, and I see both apology and humor reflected on his face. “I think that’s my line,” I say.
Slowly, he slips his hand beneath the lace of my cover-up so that his palm presses against the bare flesh of my lower abdomen, just above my bikini line. The touch is casual, little more than a place to rest his hand, and yet the contact sends sparks shooting down through my core, making my inner thighs tingle and my sex burn hot and needy.

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.
