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.

J. Kenner’s Stark World is one setting that I’ll never get enough of due to its amazing stories and the couples who reside in this sensual, suspenseful, and seductive environment, and while Damian and Nikki will always be my favorite duo in the eclectic cast of characters involved in these multifaceted story lines, I love the fact that Kenner is introducing readers to the men and women who put their lives on the line as members of Stark’s newly assembled Security team – those who vow to protect and serve in any and all facets necessary.
Readers of Kenner’s S.I.N. Trilogy met Quincy Radcliffe as a member of Dallas’ Deliverance team, and it was clear that his skillset and training were an asset to his team at MI6, with his Deliverance teammates, and now as a pivotal member of Damien Stark’s Security.
But none of Quincy’s past experience or knowledge prepared him for Eliza Tucker and his desire and need to peel away her layers, claiming her as his own OR the fallout that would occur when a routine security detail turned into a life altering situation – one that left him nothing but ‘ragged edges and missing pieces’ and nowhere near worthy of a woman like Eliza.
The fact that Shattered With You is a second chance romance is what drew me into the story line and made me want to understand exactly what happened to Quincy to make him stay away from the one woman who gave him everything…who surrendered to him in ways that allowed her to let down her walls and fill the hole inside her that she always thought would remain open…who now feels nothing but betrayed and hurt by the only man she’s ever trusted.
Quincy and Eliza are brought back together in an extremely unusual way, and while it places them in a tenuous and dangerous situation, it also gives them, especially Eliza, the opportunity to put some of their fractured pieces together, feeling a bit more whole and perhaps even move forward without being completely shattered.
But because of the circumstances surrounding their reunion, the truth of Quincy’s actual profession, as well as Quincy’s inability to see beyond his tortured past, their once inseparable connection seems to be completely destroyed, only further confusing Eliza and desperately wanting to unravel the secrets that Quincy refuses to dispense.
Shattered With You is the perfect title for Quincy and Eliza’s story because it emphasizes just how much damage has been done to them at the hands of horrible people and consequently the actions taken by Quincy to keep Eliza away from his darkness and the monster within because she’s already been through enough and he won’t subject her to any more pain, even if that’s exactly what he did when he left her without even saying goodbye.
I can’t wait for Broken With You, especially after how book one ended, which means I’m sure readers are in for another great romantic suspense in the Stark Security series.
