Review: On My Knees (Stark International #2) by J. Kenner

On My Knees 2

On My Knees (Stark International #2) by J. Kenner


Jackson Steele and Sylvia Brooks continue to thrill in the second novel of a scintillating, emotionally charged new trilogy that returns to the world of J. Kenner’s beloved Stark novels: Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me.

I never thought I’d lose control, but his desire took me right to the edge.

Powerful, ambitious, and devastatingly sexy, Jackson Steele was unlike any other man I’d ever known. He went after what he wanted with his whole mind, body, and soul—and I was the woman in his sights. One touch and I surrendered, one night together and I was undone.

Jackson and I had secrets, dark pieces of our pasts that threatened to swallow us both. We couldn’t outrun our demons, or the people trying to tear us apart. But in our passion we found salvation, and in each other’s arms we found release.

I was scared to trust Jackson fully, to finally let go. Yet no matter the dangers that lay ahead, I knew I was his—and now that we’ve laid claim, there’s no more holding back.

On My Knees is intended for mature audiences.

5 out of 5 stars

This story was a gripping and riveting roller coaster of emotion. Raw, passionate, and intense. Fantastic read that had me captivated the whole time. Seriously awesome! 

There was so much going on - secrets, drama, mystery, intrigue, emotions, and intensity. It was all just so well thought out and developed. I was on the edge of my seat and pretty much holding my breath the majority of the time because I was so caught up in everything.

Jackson and Sylvia are just so passionate and loving. There were all these great moments between the two. I loved getting answers to some secrets but I have a million more. There were some hints about one of the secrets but the details surrounding it floored me. I loved being surprised!

I'm not sure how to describe the level of hotness when it comes to the sex in this book because it was just beyond scorching. This insatiable need Jackson and Sylvia have is so passionate and erotic that it took them to new heights. It was steamy and raw and emotional and just so incredibly hot I couldn't even focus!

All the details, development, pace, story, secrets, characters are just so well crafted. It had such a great flow! I was literally just lost to it. I couldn't read fast enough! Honestly, I think it's something you need to experience for yourself - a must read.

And the end, cliffhanger. OMG cliffhanger! I'm freaking dying. Edge of me seat holy-crap-did-that-actually-just-happen cliffhanger! Cannot wait for Under My Skin.

Excellent excellent story. I am completely blown away. J. Kenner is killing it with this series. 6 stars! For real. Loved it hard!
