TAKE ME: TAKE ME is a welcome storyline-one that is lighter in tone than the previous instalments but not without some controversy of its’ own. J. Kenner writes a storyline that is edgy, sensual and erotic, without any of the over-the-top angst of regret or what ifs and whys. Nikki will come into her own and take command when the time comes and I think every woman, may at one time or another, felt the same way that our heroine felt, when pushed one too many times.

HAVE ME: J. Kenner pulls the reader into a fast paced, erotic storyline that builds towards the next installment in a series where the leading couple continues to find themselves the center of negative attention and unwanted publicity. Saying that, there is a bit of a cliff hanger, so to speak, in that several issues have not been addressed or resolved, and therefore are most likely introductory plot points for future storylines. The majority of the novella focuses on Damien and Nikki’s sex life; on sexual situations and erotic imagery-the storyline lacks any real substance or depth; real life takes a back seat to the numerous sex scenes and situations.


PLAY MY GAME: PLAY MY GAME is a romantic, intriguing and enticing addition to J. Kenner’s Stark series of novels and spinoffs. What began with a portrait and a million dollar offer in RELEASE ME book 1 has now blossomed into an erotic romance series where anyone with a close connection to our couple finds themselves with a story of their own. One can only hope that we all find a Damien Stark to call our own.

We will be introduced to the infamous architect Jackson Steele- a man whose own story will be told in J.

J.Kenner’s Stark Trilogy has a very special place in my heart, this series was among my first #AFSoG reads and Damien & Nikki’s story has stayed with me. I have honestly lost count of the number of times that I read each book in this series – to this day, I am completely enamored. Kenner gave us a couple that faced down and beat back their challengers and enemies; in the end, standing strong for each other. THEN there are the novellas. I devoured each and every one, because J. Kenner found new and inventive ways to tell the ever-after of this dynamic couple.

And now we get them all in a single collection!! The stories in Stark After Dark are simply slices of heaven for fans of Nikki and Damien Stark. They have found their happiness and we get to share it. Take Me, Have Me, Play My Game, and Seduce Me are each imaginative and sexy peeks into their marriage. They are alternatively swoony and panting meltingly hot. We get Damien Stark in all of his billionaire alpha glory and his Darling Nikki, is every bit of powerhouse.

This collection made me want even more Damien and Nikki. But more than that, I would still love to get Damien’s POV — it doesn’t have to be big — but maybe a check-in that gives us a quick trip into Damien Stark’s head? Please?

I really love Stark After Dark— it is a perfectly balanced between sweetness and outright spicy-hot. But we are also reminded of this couple’s hard-fought battles to be together, which has made their relationship stronger and even more secure.

If you haven’t read the Stark Trilogy, take the plunge — you really won’t regret it. If you have read them, Stark After Dark is the cherry, the whip cream and sprinkles on top — enjoy it!!!

This book is the series of novella from the Stark Trilogy and should be read in order.

Take Me
Planning a wedding is stressful to begin with but when you’re marrying a man like Damien Stark there is even more stress. Nikki knows what she wants for their wedding but will outside forces change everything for them before they walk down the aisle or will she get the wedding she dreamed about?
J Kenner did an amazing job capturing Damien and Nikki’s wedding and giving her readers a chance to catch up with the couple. Lots of trilogy’s end leaving the reader wanting more. Not many authors will give you a chance catch up and see how the couple is doing. As a reader, I got attached to Damien and Nikki so having a series of novella come out and gives us just a little bit more of how their life has continued. J Kenner brought back many characters from the trilogy and tying everything in to build a perfect wedding and getting them ready for their own stories to come out. Of course no wedding is drama free and J Kenner portrayed Damien and Nikki’s in true fashion and style.

Have Me
What is a wedding without a honeymoon? Damien sets out to give Nikki the honeymoon she dreamed of but the past always seems to find a way back into the present. Will the honeymoon be everything they dreamed of? Or will this be the intrusion that tears them apart?

At the end of Take Me the first novella in the Stark Ever After series Damien and Nikki change their plans so they can have the wedding that suited them. Damien like always is in control and has planned the perfect honeymoon for Nikki. He wanted it to reflect who they are as a couple.
