“He’s not a man, he’s a concept. A talisman. Fantasy mixed with memory and topped with a sprinkle of loss.”
J Kenner brings us Wicked Grind which is the first in a series of spin off books in the Stark Conglomerate World of the wealthy. J Kenner first caught my attention with the Starks and I have been a huge follower ever since, there is something about how this author pens her erotic romances that has me hooked from first to last page. I will say that this one the tamest books I have read of hers, because this book is all about the SLOWWWWW BURNNNNN, and it really gets to you. The chemistry and the sizzling current between these two more than motors this book along and you know that when the time comes it is going to be explosive.
This is the story of Wyatt and Kelsey and is a second chance romance. While I found the plot predictable it did not lessen my enjoyment and having that ability to read between the lines only made me more invested in their present. This book does flash back from past to present and while personally I would have loved more time in the present, especially after, I loved what I did get.
Wyatt is a photographer, he is the son and grandson of Hollywood greats and from an early age had always wanted to make it on his own, without the family name giving him the leg up. Wyatt wanted to earn his own money, support himself and make it…himself and he was well on the way to succeeding. His upcoming gallery showing of his latest series of photographs was destined for greatness, he just need to find “the one” to make it happen.
“All he really knew was that he wanted answers. But at the same time, he didn’t want to open wounds that had healed long ago.”
Kelsey was a school teacher and a dance teacher, her love of dance is what keeps her going. Having a very sheltered upbringing, she is very pure and proper, but there was an inner vixen underneath that was just waiting to be unleashed. Kelsey came alive when she danced, she became a different person and it was the only time she ever felt free.
Both Wyatt and Kelsey have only loved once and that was when they were teenagers and met one summer. Kelsey made Wyatt work for it and just when it looked like everything was going to be okay, it all went to pot. Neither found the other, but maybe it just wasn’t their time, now their paths cross once again and once again Wyatt has found “the one.”
“You know you’re not playing fair.” “Maybe not,” she countered, her face lit with pleasure. “But I like the way it feels to finally be in the game.”
These two were chalk and cheese, Wyatt having grown up in the spotlight and Kelsey sheltered by her being under her father’s thumb. Both upbringings have had a lasting effect on them and one they are desperate to rid themselves of. When these two first re-connect the spark that had lain dormant for years some becomes a roaring fire and this becomes a case of misunderstandings and leaving the past in the past.
“In other words, Kelsey, you don’t want to be your daddy’s girl at all. You want to be bad…”
J Kenner delivered a cute second chance romance wrapped up in the erotic world of sensual photography. I loved these two as a couple even if I just wanted them to sit down and talk it all out as soon as they met, but where would the fun be in that? This one captured my attention from start to finish and while I would have loved more at the end, it ended in a great place.
Wyatt is a photographer who has set out to become popular in the world of art. His career and reputation are riding on his upcoming exhibit hosted by the Stark Center. He wants to become famous in his own right and prove himself to his family. But he is still looking for the centerpiece of his art, the girl who fills his dreams and fantasies. This elusive muse happens to be his high school sweetheart, Kelsey Draper, whom he hasn’t spoken to in twelve years.
Kelsey urgently needs cash to enroll her brother in trials for a clinical protocol. She would be perfect for Wyatt’s show, but he doesn’t trust her. He is conflicted and wants to punish her for leaving him without a word. He is resolved to keep her at a distance, not risk his heart, because he’s not sure she could survive the heartbreak a second time. Kelsey blames herself for past events. She is deeply hurt by Wyatt’s hostility, but she can’t stay away from him. He offers her a deal she can’t refuse.
Wyatt and Kelsey are well-developed, vibrant and engaging characters, who evoked real emotions and had palpable chemistry. If you love second chance romances then you’ll love this hot, emotion-filled story! Julie Kenner’s writing is flawless, it made Kelsey and Wyatt’s lust, longing and hurt come off the pages. Their second chance was believable, it was only a matter of time till these star crossed lovers found themselves rekindling the love they shared in the past.
