Emery
I’ve loved Jordan Grady since I was eight. 
Since he became my protector.
Since he became my safe haven each night. 
But I was younger.
Off limits…
Until high school when he finally kissed me. 
And for a few fleeting moments, everything was right in the world. 
Then I was forced to do the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do…
Disappear from his life without a trace.
Grady
I’m Alabama’s star right tackle—and a real prick. 
I live my life by a few solid truths.
Life isn’t fair.
Don’t let anyone get too close.
And those who claim to care about you can up and leave. 
But you know what they say about things that disappear….
But Emery Pruitt had never been mine.
Even if she had returned after four years.
Older.
Confident.
And more beautiful than the night she vanished.
But it didn’t erase the fact that she’d left me.
So, why find me now?

Excerpt
“Have you kissed her yet?” 
“Emery,” I groaned. 
“Did you use tongue?” 
“That’s it.” I tightened my arms around her and rolled onto my back.
Her back stayed pressed to my chest while her bare legs flailed above her. 
“What are you doing?” she giggled. 
“Trying to get you to stop talking.” 
She burst into full-blown hysterics which caused me to laugh. We’d done
this long enough to know we needed to keep our voices low so my parents
couldn’t hear us. 
Eventually, our laughter subsided. But I had a good hundred pounds on
her, so I knew she couldn’t get loose unless I relented. I did just enough for
her to turn, twisting in my arms so she lay on top of me with her face mere
inches from mine. This closeness was clearly natural for us. We’d shared a bed
for six years. 
But gone were the big awed eyes when she looked at me—like I was her
very own knight in shining armor. Now her heavy-laden eyes showed want. Her
unsteady breaths held need. 
“If you don’t want to talk,” she said. “Is there something else you’d
rather do?” 
My dick sprang to attention, pressing itself between her thighs. 
Fuuuuuck
“Why haven’t you ever tried to kiss me?” she asked. 
Unable to look her in the eyes, my head dropped to the side. “Emery.” 
“I’m serious, Jordan. Aren’t you the least bit curious?” 
“About what?” 
“What it’d be like.” 
I huffed, knowing I was in a no-win situation. This was my best friend.
This was Emery. 
“Well, aren’t you?” she persisted. 
“I know what it’d be like,” I snapped. 
“And what’s that?” 
I looked back into her blue eyes, the ones I wished didn’t look so damn
pretty gazing back at me. “Amazing.”

Blog Tour: Damien by J Kenner & Review

DAMIEN_ BT.jpg

I am Damien Stark. Do you want to see inside my head?

Careful what you wish for.

Damien, an all-new full-length novel in the wildly popular Stark Saga, from New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner is available now!

damien_fnl_081418_v2

I am Damien Stark. From the outside, I have a perfect life. A billionaire with a beautiful family. But if you could see inside my head, you’d know I’m as f-ed up as a person can be. Now more than ever.

I’m driven, relentless, and successful, but all of that means nothing without my wife and daughters. They’re my entire world, and I failed them. Now I can barely look at them without drowning in an abyss of self-recrimination.

Only one thing keeps me sane—losing myself in my wife’s silken caresses where I can pour all my pain into the one thing I know I can give her. Pleasure.

But the threats against my family are real, and I won’t let anything happen to them ever again. I’ll do whatever it takes to keep them safe—pay any price, embrace any darkness. They are mine.

I am Damien Stark. Do you want to see inside my head? Careful what you wish for.

My review:

This is the first book I’ve read of this series, but it was so good. I could tell that a lot had happened before this book, but it was still easy to keep up, with enough background information I didn’t feel lost. The book begins shortly after Damien and Nikki’s two year old daughter had been kidnapped and rescued, and she was at home safe. However, Damien can’t forgive himself for not keeping his family safe.
Much of the book is Damien dealing with his feelings of failure, and coming to terms with the fact that he cannot control the universe. There is also a beautiful love story of a husband and wife who are everything to each other. Damien and Nikki are perfect for each other. There is also quite a bit of action in the book, resulting from the kidnapping and a couple other incidents.

What I liked: Damien and Nikki’s relationship. They are completely there for each other. It’s so nice to read a loving, supportive adult relationship with no manufactured drama and games. If one of them tries to shut the other one out and make assumptions without talking about a problem like adults, the other calls them out on it and they deal with the issue. I like Damien’s friendship with his brother, too.

What I didn’t like: Since this was the sixth book (not counting several in-between novellas, according to Goodreads) in the series, I could tell I was missing a lot of the story. But that is minor, since those parts for the most part do not affect the current storyline, and the few that did are sufficiently explained.

Overall: Very good story.

Rating: ♥♥♥♥

Excerpt:

He started to lash out. To pound his fist against the door frame. But he pulled back, not wanting to wake Nikki or the two little angels curled up next to her in their bed. His wife. His precious little girls.

His family.

As much as he loved Nikki, he hadn’t truly understood how full his heart could be until he’d held Lara in his arms for the first time. And though he hadn’t expected it was possible, his heart had expanded even more when he watched Anne’s birth two years ago and saw her draw that first breath.

Every day, his daughters looked up at him with wide, guileless eyes. And every day, he felt that punch in the gut. A fear that he couldn’t live up to the trust he saw there. That somehow, someway, he would fail them. Not in the way his own father had failed him. But in some other, fundamental way.

And that’s exactly what happened.

He thought of Rory, that fucker who’d taken his child. Of Nikki, broken and huddled in the closet with a blade, blood streaming down her fair skin, cutting for the first time in years. The first time since he’d demanded that she come to him—to him—when she needed the blade.

So many times, she’d done exactly that. Gone to him when the burden of the world had been too much to bear. When she needed the pain to find her way back. And he’d always been there for her, his need as potent as hers. Because he had to be the one to take her there. To slide down with her into that sweet place where sensual pleasure crossed over into pain. Where need and desire meshed, merging into euphoria. Where they could both cling to that one small measure of control in a world that was spinning off its axis.

How many times had they saved each other? Their needs meshing as perfectly as their desire?

How many times had he held her close as they fought their demons together? And yet this time—when the worst parts of hell had swallowed them whole—she hadn’t come to him. Instead, she’d put a razor-sharp length of stainless steel against her own flesh, and she’d drawn her own blood for the first time in years.

All because he’d failed her. Because it was his mistakes that spawned the demons.

Because for the first time in their relationship she hadn’t trusted him to save her. And why should she, when he’d already failed so spectacularly?

He thought of that. Of the scars on her legs. Of the fresh wound that mocked him still.

He thought—and his stomach twisted with pain and self-loathing.

Mostly, he thought of Anne. His precious girl, who’d been alone and scared for days.

They’d gotten Anne back. They’d talked about Damien’s choices. The risks he’d taken to find their daughter and her kidnapper. They’d worked it out, and they were back on keel. And he knew in his gut that Nikki was strong enough to survive the whole ordeal.

But that didn’t change the simple, basic truth.

He’d failed.

Roughly, he massaged his palms over his face, then looked again at his girls, curled up together, safe and asleep.

Safe.

For now, at least.

But for the first time in a long time, Damien felt as if the shadows that had plagued his past had returned to haunt him, bringing harsh recriminations and fresh dangers.

He squared his shoulders, steeling himself. He was strong. More than that, he had resources. He had means. And he damn well had the determination to keep those encroaching horrors at bay.

Most of all, he had a life—a family—worth fighting for.

He was fucking Damien Stark.

He’d failed once.

He wouldn’t fail again.
