She needs him, and her body won’t let her forget it.

Ruined With You, an all-new installment in the Stark Security series of standalones, from New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner, is available now!


When her high maintenance boss is assaulted, manager Xena Morgan contacts the only person who can help—the sexy, arrogant, incredibly capable Stark Security agent Liam Foster. The former vigilante takes every case personally, and he’s determined to find answers—particularly since he thought he’d cleared this threat already.

Xena had been thrilled when Liam completed his assignment, because he affected her in ways she didn’t want to contemplate, awakening yearnings that threatened her deepest secrets.

But now she needs him, and her body won’t let her forget it.

As their attraction heats to a feverish degree, the web of lies, danger, and passion they find themselves in tangles further. Liam will stop at nothing to protect his client, even if it means sacrificing everything he holds dear … and exposing the secrets that may destroy him—and Xena—forever.

My Review

Fear is a powerful feeling; so much so that it forces people to live life differently than they would if that overwhelming emotion didn’t guide their choices and make them fearful of being fully themselves in a way that allows others to see who they truly are. With panic comes secrets and lies, which means that doing anything to protect the information that is solely theirs is something they’ll fight to the death for, but when a threat to unravel more than their past seems imminent, Xena Morgan and Stark Security Agent Liam Foster will have to decide which is more inevitable – revealing every sordid detail of who they are or losing the chance to see what they could be together.

By design, every member of Stark Security is trained to protect and serve, not only their clients but also those who they’re involved with, whether it be on a professional or personal level. And while it seems that these guys try not to get too close to anyone because entanglements of that kind were long ago forgotten due to a number of reasons and secrets that these men hold close to the chest, always fighting to keep their demons at bay while going all in to ensure that no one gets hurt on their watch, including themselves.

The dynamic between Xena and Liam is electric from the start, not only because they’ve worked together before, but also because their hearts and minds seemed more aligned to one another, almost like their bond was forged long before they even realized and that’s why they’re constantly in each other’s thoughts and want each other as desperately as they seem to, even if they’re afraid to give into that emotion because they don’t do love or relationships.

J Kenner definitely knows how to write romantic suspense and the newest release in her Stark Security series, Ruined With You, finally gives readers Liam Foster’s story – Dallas’ best friend and one hell of a protective vigilante. And with the amount of baggage both he and the heroine have amidst fighting to outrun the danger that she seems to be in, we watch their undeniable chemistry become something that will either ruin or heal them.

The way J Kenner’s series and worlds co-exist with one another allows for readers to catch special appearances by some of their favorite Kenner characters and see how they interact with the newest recruits to the Stark team or other associates who work with the Stark conglomerate. And because I’m a huge fan of all things and people associated with Damien Stark, I always love getting the chance to see how some of my favorite people and couples are doing, especially after all that they have weathered.
