Shattered With You, the first in the all-new Stark Security series of standalones, from New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner, is available now!
With his lethal skills and criminal connections, former British agent Quincy Radcliffe has fast become a key asset at the newly formed Stark Security. But Quincy isn’t the man he appears to be.
When the woman whose body he once worshipped and whose heart he broke pleads for his help, Quincy knows he must either turn his back on her or risk revealing his dark secrets to the one woman who can—and will—tear open his old wounds.
For years, struggling actress Eliza Tucker has tried to forget the decadent weeks she shared with Quincy Radcliffe. His smoldering good looks had drawn her in, while his British charm had enchanted her. But it was the wildness of his seduction and the ferocity of his passion that captured her. She’d given herself to him—and he’d shattered her like glass when he’d walked away.
Now, he’s the only person who can help find her missing sister. She’ll use him because she has too. She’ll pay any sensual price he demands. But she won’t fall for him again.
This was an entertaining book. Quincy is a former MI6 agent working for the newly formed Stark Security Agency, going undercover, along with his partner Denise, at a party trying to get information to stop a sex trafficking ring and save a 13 year old princess who was kidnapped and being sold. He unexpectedly sees Eliza at the party, thinking she is so desperate for money she is working as a call girl although she is also undercover trying to find her missing sister. Almost five years previously he and Eliza had a relationship while she was living in London, but the job took him away from her, leaving them both heartbroken and her angry. Unfortunately, they must work together to find her sister and the princess.
There is a lot of action and excitement in this book, along with the romance. The main story is the missing princess and sister. There are some intense scenes, too. When we find out what happened to Quincy on the mission that took him away from Eliza in London… wow. And the villain reveal and fight at the end was insane. Even better, I was actually surprised by who the villain actually was! I had predicted it would be a different person. And once Eliza and Quincy talk out what happened when their relationship ended, they are able to come to terms with their feelings and move forward in a healthy way.
This is a great book, but not a light easy read by any means. And the ending sets up the next book well, too. I am excited to read Denise’s story after getting to know her in this book.
