Review

“Intense . . . blistering in its sensuality . . . Fans of [J.] Kenner’s sizzling and emotional Stark International trilogy will find plenty to savor in this finale, as her troubled and passionate protagonists battle to save each other from the darkness that threatens to tear them apart.”RT Book Reviews
 
“Red-hot and angsty . . . Kenner keeps readers guessing about who was responsible for Reed’s death until the very end, punctuating the story with hot and explicit sex scenes, questions about who’s trying to destroy the resort project that could make Sylvia’s career, and a red herring or two.”Publishers Weekly
 
“Kenner does a wonderful job of displaying both Jackson’s and Sylvia’s secrets, pains, insecurities and the mechanisms they use when the stress is overwhelming. . . . A great series about determination, strong personalities, perseverance and standing strong under adversity. . . . A wonderful read!”Fresh Fiction
 
“This trilogy has everything readers look for in a series. . . . It’s loaded with intrigue, mystery, conflict, and a powerful cast of supporting characters. At the same time it is a tender, beautiful romance between two people that have struggled with their pasts. . . . This book was intense, heartbreaking, emotional, and a page-turner.”—Smut Book Junkie
 
Under My Skin is the conclusion of J. Kenner’s exciting trilogy featuring the intense Jackson Steele and the troubled spitfire Sylvia Brooks. The passion continued to burn hot between them in this finale, even as they faced crisis after crisis. . . . Filled with all of the drama and seduction I have come to expect and love from J. Kenner, Under My Skin was a crazy-hot story that left me completely satisfied with our characters’ HEA.”—Harlequin Junkie
 
“Amazingly well written with detailed and complicated characters who are full of raw emotion, passion, and intensity . . . When Jackson and Sylvia are intimate, their passion is explosive and filled with wild desire. . . . Excellent story, build, well developed, great pace. It was drama filled, heartbreaking, sexy, and full of second chances. . . . The Stark International Trilogy is a must-read!”—About That Story
 
“This story has all the passion, love, heat, and nitty gritty, provocative sex you have come to love from the first two books.”—Itsy Bitsy Book Bits
 
“Kenner mixes a hot alpha man with a murder accusation, sabotage and sex so hot you’ll fall to your knees. . . . And throughout it all a thread of heat sizzles just underneath every single scene.”—Obsessed with Myshelf

First, the good: I enjoy J Kenner's writing style and I was quickly engaged in the story as it picked up exactly where book 2 ended. I couldn't help but root for Jackson and Sylvia and enjoyed their journey as they both experienced some personal growth.

But, there is also some bad: This series is basically a repeat of Nikki and Damien complete with abusive childhood and accusations of murder. Surely there are other plots that would have worked? I thought the 2 mysteries in the book--who killed Reed and who was sabotaging the resort-were glaringly obvious and not really a mystery. Finally, the book was very repetitive. Jackson and Sylvia have something traumatic happen or have a fight and the only way they can work through it is by having sex and this is always the way that she leads into the sex scenes. It became really boring after a while and I found myself wishing for the end of the book.

If you are a fan of J Kenner and have already read the 1st 2 books in the series then it is worth the time to read the final book in the series. If you have not yet started this series, I think there are other books and series that are more deserving of your time and money.

Under My Skin by J. Kenner is the third and final installment in the Stark International Trilogy and what a way to end it! This story has murder, mystery, passion, love, betrayal, and hot melt your panties kind of sex!

Sylvia Brooks and Jackson Steele are caught up in one heck of a mess and unfortunately that means that the hits just keep coming. All Sylvia wants it to love Jackson, finish her resort, and be happy. However, with Jackson arrested for the murder of Reed and Sylvia not sure whether he did it or not she finds herself trying to prevent it from all spinning out of control.

Jackson wants to just love Sylvia, start a life with his daughter Veronica (Ronnie), get to know his newfound brother and help Sylvia finish the resort. In the face of being wanted for murder he has to rethink each step that he takes and it doesn’t help that he has a temper, which could be construed as proof he killed Reed. He is desperate to prove his innocence while keeping Sylvia’s secret, but is finding he not only has to prove his innocence to the world, but maybe Sylvia as well.

As the pressure mounts and Jackson begins pushing Sylvia away, will she have any choice but to go back to her old way of life, adding some new tattoos? When Jackson finds he can’t control anything in his life will he go back to the ring causing even more trouble for himself? If he goes to jail where does that leave Ronnie?

Reed was a vile man who deserved what he got, but is it Jackson who gave it to him or could it be the person you least expected? In the midst of all the trials and tribulations, there is a new betrayal with the resort. Lines will be crossed, backs will be stabbed, and people will be hurt.

Under My Skin gets 4.5 stars! I absolutely loved the ending that we receive from Ms. Kenner as she definitely did all of her characters justice. From the first two books, we see and feel the overwhelming love and lust that Jackson and Sylvia share, but this third and final book shows just how far they will go to protect one another, even if it means breaking their own hearts. We start the book immediately where On My Knees left off, with Jackson and Sylvia in New Mexico visiting his daughter, Ronnie. This, of course, comes after Jackson is approached on the tarmac by the police who then tell him he is a suspect in a murder. From this point, it is a rollercoaster of highs and lows and so much indecision and uncertainty that I started getting worried we wouldn't get our HEA. I needed an HEA because, after three tumultuous books, I can't imagine any other couple who deserved it as much as our H and h. "You see me," he says simply. "You know that I'd do whatever is necessary to protect you. To protect Ronnie." He draws a slow breath. "But a jury won't see that. That's my heart, baby. And my heart is only for you." He reaches over and strokes my cheek. "It will be okay." Swoon!!!

No spoilers here because Under My Skin is truly an amazing book that you have to experience for yourself. But, believe me, you will get frustrated and want to slap both characters when they hide things - I know that I certainly did! However, all of this builds up to one of the best endings I have read in this genre. I can only hope that Ms. Kenner continues this series so we can revisit these characters again! Well done on another amazing trilogy!

The much needed conclusion to the Jackson Steele trilogy was just as emotional, powerful, and sexy as the first two. This book has solidified the fact that Jackson is my favorite of the brothers. Damien is lovely and all but Jackson is just so much more of everything and he completely a decent portion of my very soul.

With the news of Reed's murder and Jackson as the lead suspect, this novel picks up with Sylvia and Jackson struggling to deal with the possibility of Jackson ending up on trial and found guilty, Jackson's daughter, and investors pulling from the hotel project. The two have to fight the outside forces and each other in order to be together and hope for a happy ending. Jackson walks away from Sylvie, Sylvie walks away from Jackson, Jackson fights for Sylvie, and Sylvie fights for Jackson. There's grounding sex, words of love, actions of love, and redemption through love.

Jackson and Sylvie redeem and save one another through their love and understanding of what the other needs regardless of what words are said. They are in tune with each other's needs, desires, and work on a level deeper than most. They can survive without one another but they cannot live without each other and that is what makes their love so incredible. Their interdependence is telling yet beautiful. Everyone deserves the kind of love Jackson and Sylvie share because it is the kind that not only makes the couple better but also shows those around what true happiness looks like and makes me believe in soul mates.

Honestly, I have loved Jackson since the very first book and it hasn't gone anywhere. He's such a great character. He's not perfect but imperfectly perfect where even his flaws are endearing. He's smart, passionate, compassionate, loyal, ruthless, dynamic, and caring.
