Review: Wicked Grind (Wicked Nights–Stark World #1) by J. Kenner | About That Story 

Wicked Grind (Wicked Nights – Stark World #1) by J. Kenner 


From New York Times and #1 International bestselling author J. Kenner, the first in an all new series of fast-paced, provocative novels centering around the ambitious, wealthy, and powerful men who work in the glamorous and exciting world of the Stark International conglomerate … and the sexy and passionate women who bring them to their knees.

Photographer Wyatt Royce’s career is on the verge of exploding. All he needs is one perfect model to be the centerpiece of his sexy, controversial show. Find her, and Wyatt is sure to have a winner.

Then Kelsey Draper walks in. Stunning. Vibrant. And far too fragile for a project like this. Wyatt should know—after all, he remembers only too well why their relationship ended all those years ago.

Determined to break free from her good girl persona, Kelsey wants spice. Adventure. And she’s certain that Wyatt is just the man to help.

But when Wyatt agrees to give her the job only if he has complete control—on camera and in his bed—Kelsey can’t help but wonder if she’s in too deep. Because how can a good girl like her ever be enough for a man like Wyatt?


4 out of 5 stars

Talk about a story that had me filled with major anticipation, this was it. Wyatt and Kelsey have an intense story and I hung on every word waiting for them to come together.

Wyatt and Kelsey’s story felt intense, raw, and it was filled with so much emotion. They were such interesting characters from different walks of life and they each had their own battles they were dealing with. There’s wonderful character development for both of them. I loved Wyatt, I totally got him, he was alluring and passionate. Now Kelsey, I liked her but she was a bit frustrating too because her biggest obstacle was herself. That moment though when she owns who she is, it's pretty awesome.

Even though this had an intense feel, I thought it was light in the drama department. It's more of an emotional roller coaster. There is a lot of passion simmering and building but I was pleasantly surprised by this slow burn happening in the story. How it was laid out and how their histories are learned made the build to the heated moments that much better.

There was a really good build to the story though I felt the back half was a bit drawn out. I thought the descriptions were great and I was filled with so much anticipation because I was excited with everything I was learning and was looking forward to what would come next. The back and forth flow of their POVs was awesome.

All in all, I thought this was an excellent introduction to the series and am looking forward to more! Awesome read!
