book blurb

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 Steel 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.

Under My Skin is intended for mature audiences.

my review

5 Stars

The conclusion to the Stark International trilogy, Under My Skin was incredible. J. Kenner not only wrapped up Jackson and Sylvia’s story with the same passion that she started the series with – she exceeded all of my expectations.

Diving back into their world, I remembered all that overwhelmed this couple. Criminal charges, extended families and their minor relationship issues. These two characters have to fight so hard just to enjoy their lives and one another. And the more I read, the more I honestly could not wait to see how Jackson and Sylvia would find their solace and get past all that troubled them.

Their journey toward happily ever after goes back and forth quite a bit. Jackson struggles to depend on Sylvia because he fears his future; while Sylvia battles her own insecurities regarding what will become of their lives.  With all that they have endured, you almost feel desperate for them because you feel their love for one another and it makes you want them to figure it all out.

Overall, I truly liked this trilogy and how the plot played out.  The characters and their drama kept me entertained for three books – I think I could have done without a few things but I am glad I found this series. It was an intense and passionate read – one that I definitely recommend you check it out.
