Not my first read by the author and I have read all the other books in this series! This one somehow took it for me! There is something about a broken heroine and a hero that has it all but is just missing.
I can’t express enough how much I LOVED THE HEROINE in this. She was an equal amount of strong and vulnerable. Beautiful but doesn’t know it and very smart and SO SO SWEET. The hero you will love equally because he was swoony, sweet, fun and uber sexy! This is a not really second chance but the hero and heroine do know each other. Their meet cute was epic, there is this little puppy named Pepper Jack that is a little devil in disguise with big brown puppy eyes that the hero couldn’t resist. Yes, the heroine is a VET and the hero works at the SECURITY firm that is part of the series. Everything about this is appealing, from the beginning the fun and laughter to going through the pains with the heroine while her family sucker punches her verbally to the hero making her feel like the sexiest woman alive. There is danger, mystery, some best friend fun who is a romance photographer and YES the hero models and it’s the sexiest thing ever…I am pretty sure all of our dream jobs (you’ll see what I mean) That said this really took me from the start, kept me engaged and wowed me through the end!

“I’ve waited months to kiss you. I’m not missing out on any more chances.”
Not my first read by the author, and I have enjoyed all of the ones I have read. This was something else and different form the author so it took me a little to get used to it. I don’t know if I just wasn’t used to this type form the author but I couldn’t get into it fully or fast enough. I was fighting myself between Dark Mafia Romance the full on effect and this which to me seemed a in between so that’s probably why I was battling between it. That said the romance part of this was amazing and I loved it from Jeannine because she really does that well but the mafia and suspense was not there fully for me. The heroine was a 50/50 but I really did enjoy the hero, he kept me going to be honest. I am glad I had the chance to review and read something different I am used to from the author.

Not my first read by the author. Little note: I read this author before I started any of this bookstagramming and blogging and fell in love with her books from books one. I can safely say that I have re-read her books enough times for me to tell you exact details in them. So was I excited to get Gunner & Emmie’s story? HECK YES!
Little background, Emmie is the daughter (adopted) from the book CAL and well that’s all I am saying for that, and Gunner has been around in since she can remember herself. That said these two were a time bomb waiting to happen. It’s a full on BIKER romance, where the hero is part of the club, patched in, important, and Emmie just happens to be shown in as they say because she was so little when she was adopted that that’s all she knows and loves. Gunner is a rough around the edges, older, closed off and has given Emmie shit since she remembers. Emmie is a woman that might be youngER but very smart, put together, mature and so sweet. After some horrible events that leave her a little dazed Gunner realizes that all this time he should have just done what his mind and heart wanted…but after more danger…will he be able to prove himself?!
This is a I would highly recommend reading the first generation books if anything at least read CAL before this because it will make much more sense in a for you put two an two together. After all this is the second generation series the kids. I was so happy for these two and can’t wait for more as always!

Not my first read by the author and I have read plenty where I am familiar with her writing. That said this is Book #5 in a 5 book series, yes these books follow the same Hero and Heroine so I would not recommend skipping.
WOW! Talk about being on the edge the whole time. This is high on suspense and action but it does not lack the romance. This is the final conclusion to the 5 book series that follows the same hero and heroine. Obvious reasons I would not suggest reading out of order. I am debating if I want to give a lot out but I honestly don’t want to because this is much needed after the 4 books. Nothing is what it seems, on the edge scenes, mystery, action, little dark vibes, pretty much had it all. The HEA will have you swooning, crying and feelings ALL the feels. Highly recommend this whole series!

Not my first read by the author, she happens to be my 3rd read ever many moons ago. I fell in love with this series and Kristen’s writing so I love her work!
Okay, at the very very beginning I was little skeptical of the heroine and you’ll see why but I gotta say that changed so quick and I absolutely udderly love the hero in this I’ll explain why but I fell in love with Georgiana just in love. Now the reason why I love this Hero Dutch because he is the son of Graham Black who unfortunately got killed when he was five and you met him in the Chaos Series, so when I saw this i about screamed i always wondered what will happen. I also have to say that this is a first time a NOVELLA made it in my TOP 2020 MUST READ. Also good news but Jagger his brother gets a story too so happy days!
Okay so Jag asks Dutch for a favor, to go pick up his on/off girl’s sister from the airport because they both were stuck doing other stuff. Reluctantly Duck does him a solid. But he was no prepared for a woman that had a LONG AF opinion on overhead baggage bins. Looking back now that was hilarious and overly dramatic. That said because I don’t want to ruin this shorter story and will say that to me I wouldn’t suggest reading it alone, the Chaos series is something else on its own. But if you must this gives you enough information to go by. THAT said, this really shows when 2 characters are so many to be, that your heart flourishes with them. I loved their banner, their honestly, their fucking amazing connection and mostly because our heroine here is a very confident curvy gorgeous woman that the hero admires throughout. It’s sweet, fun, romantic, suspenseful, mystery, action and SO ROMANTIC! The heart on this level 15!! *sigh happily* because I already want to re read and have more please!!!!!

His kisses are nothing I’ve experienced before. He takes my breath away, but I’d happily expire because I can never get enough of him,
Not my first read by the author and I have read plenty to say that I love her works. Her Dark Romance way is on another level. That said I love you Monica but my god was the first 20% of this HARD for me to read. I won’t lie but I am kind of sick of Willow and Saint in all this and was hoping they’d fade away and not have to be involved especially her like she did. It truly to my bone made me sick, I’m sorry to have to say all this but it’s the truth and I absolutely hate anything related to the hero or heroine willingly and in front of one another be with other people, I know it’s a dark romance but I won’t lie when I was expecting less of that in this book so the first 20% was hard to swallow down and I had to take a break from reading for me to calm down. Maybe I invest too much in the characters but that type of stuff is a HUGE HUGE HUGE turn off for me. That was so not necessary in my mind. I’m going to need a hot minute to be able to continue but I pray that it doesn’t get bigger into THIS than it did.
Okay at 30% and I take it back what I saw was horrific but what happened to Ella in that bedroom, I think I actually threw up in my mouth, that was utterly disgusting. I don’t even know if I want to go on after this…I’m sorry after she realized her plan backfired I would have blown my cover or I don’t know tried harder but that THAT was fucking disgusting to read in all the levels, I felt bad for her but I was more disgusted!
Oh God Alek, you failed Ella so hard ;'( and poor Ella you plan backfired with life. *sad sigh*
This is not going to be a pretty review because I can”t emphasize enough how much I feel like this is just a 2 book continuance of All The Pretty Things because I was already annoyed with how much Saint and Willow were in part 1 and now this, this took it to another level. I get it I do but to be honest I was over Saint and Willow with their books and was okay to see them in Book 1 but did not expect them to be this much THIS MUCH in book 2 already, I roll my eyes every time he shows so much affection to Willow and that kiss, EW no I don’t care who you are but that was not necessary not was it in any way sad or accepted, to me that is. I am not a happy camper and only barely at 40% which sucks because I was really looking forward to the conclusion of ALEK & ELLA but what I got so far is I don’t know, I honestly don’t know. I jut can’t justify their love because I thought we were past that but keep coming back to it. I personally could not focus on Alek or Ella for the whole 40% of the book.
The worse part for me in all this is that right now at 56% I can’t form feelings for both of them, too much has happened and when i mean too much i mean A LOT and I just can’t how do I express it, I can;t feel the connection between Alek and Ella anymore…which to me makes it like i’m just reading words. That beginning really shook me and I am now here lost…as they seem to be. The boat situation was kind of slow going and I can’t get the romance feeling anymore which really sucks because I was SO LOOKING FORWARD to that here…all I feel right now if whiplash from the yacht situation.
Now getting loser to the end and I gotta say one thing I AM A EMOTIONAL READER I really invest myself into these characters that’s why my reviews are different, I tend to review as I read because of my emotions and this proves it. But I haven’t been disappointed in a while and it has noting to do with the author’s writing but the scenes, outcomes, characters…just plain was not ready for this and not in a good way. The scene on the yacht after the kids ordeal (you’ll see what I mean) really had me baffled due to the fact of what had just happened and on top of that what Ella told Alek and then the outcome to be what THEY DID, I honestly can’t say I felt the love, the compassion, the romance…nothing. It felt unreal to me just words and I hate it because the beginning really messed me up. The best part about this so far is that once they are THEM in a way I remind myself back to when they first met and their chase and their connection…some really trigger y moments in this and some personal ones, so that of course played a deal too. But I am going in to finish this and will be back with a last paragraph to conclude my review, sorry it’s so long I just WANT to feel it but can’t seem to get over it.
The last 25ish % were back to business, action, revenges, killing, blood shed, romance, darkness…it grabs you again or it grabbed me again, the plans the outcomes, it was all so familiar and I started to get the feeling again which of course was caused because of Alek and Ella of course. I did not see the outcome it was rather intense and definitely if you are not into bloodshed and the DARK it will be quiet a show. The fight for love may not have come easy or conventional to Alek and Ella but still breathtaking. To conclude it all now that I am so conflicted because the ending really got me really got me I even cried but the beginning messed me up so much, I am conflicted. I want you to know reading this review that this is with a heavy heart giving this a 4.5 stars but I am true to myself and to me this dark line crossed over a little too far for me at times. My opinions and feelings just expressing them, doesn’t mean it isn’t for you this is mere look into my feelings towards reading it from page one to end. P.s. there is no epilogue unless I missed it somehow, wish there was a little more of a conclusion unless we are also getting something additional.

Not my first read by the author, I actually she’s been one of my secret hidden I LOVE her books author. I honestly have not read any books by her that I did not like, something about her writing style just appeals to me.
So the hero and heroine here are in their late 40’s meaning they are also grandparents. So the hero is a rough MC who is 50 and has had his share of life, the one daughter he does have he lost contact with many years ago. Two years is how long this man has waited to make his move only to be send into hyper speed of romance when the time does come. The heroine, she is super sweet, loving and smart. Taking care of her childs children, raising them since they were little enough…she doesn’t have time for anything else. She likes her job being the cook at the MC and that’s that. WRONG! She didn’t know what she was missing until that kiss. Since this is a MC you know you will get action, mystery, suspense, danger, dark..but what’s beautiful about this si the love between the hero and heroine, it’s not over the top no, but by gosh it’s so sweet makes you melt. Something about a big strong MC man to melt your heart when he calls you SUGAR!
Absolutely recommend her books to anyone that loves older characters, old school love, romance, passion, dirty sex but in the best way possible and just plain REAL!

Not my first read by the author. She’s actually one of my first 5 author’s I read gosh many moons ago so to say I am very familiar with her writing is little to say. I am aware of her style and do enjoy both the suspense and BDSM kink style she does well.
I am not going to lie but this almost turned me off completely. It’s one thing for the heroine to have something with another random guy but just her being THAT type of woman, is a HUGE turn off for me. Sets the mood for me for the rest of the book and something I don’t look forward to because any ‘romantic’ relationship with the hero is tainted for me. Personal opinion so not saying someone doesn’t like that type of debacle at the beginning of the book. To say I was surprised it didn’t turn towards the ‘me cringing if they sleep with other people is an understatement. I was actually expecting it while the heroine is strong yes but to me at times overbearing, I mean fits perfect since she is an ex-cop turned reporter. But the heroine is definitely hard I will say that, stubborn and yet at the end of part one (YES THIS IS A CLIFFY) we see a very vulnerable side of her. The hero is two faced and no not in the way you’re thinking. I don’t want to give out anything since this is a mystery suspense Romance with a lot of Angst, i will say that. It’s catching and entertaining, I was a little put off at the beginning won’t lie, but throughout the book I was swept away from the suspense and mystery. Everything you think is ISN’T. p.s. the cliffy kind of was not a WOW to me, I went in forgetting it’s one and predicted the ending once I realized. Also we have to wait till January 2021 so like 4 years in reader world for part 2! Will be worth it because this book is a J. Kenner through and through!!

He should’ve never left his house. He should’ve stayed at home. He has a legitimate excuse—he’s running a fever and he’s fairly sure he’s developing pneumonia. He should have called in sick…but he doesn’t. He goes to work, because his team is relying on him. First, he has to sign about eight thousand calendars—all from women who purchased said calendars to benefit the Fallen Officer fundraiser. And when he’s done with that, he has to endure a television interview along with the rest of the SWAT team seeing as they made national news with their ‘Hot SWAT’ calendar that’s sold a million copies to women all over the world. Needless to say, when Samuel Adams walks into the pharmacy hours later, he only has one thing on his mind. Ibuprofen. Sadly, he never gets to the Ibuprofen. Mostly because before he gets there, he finds a junkie waving a gun around threatening to kill anybody that moves. He’s running a fever. That has to be the reason that the girl in the corner begins cursing up a storm and drawing the junkie’s attention. Has to be.

Not my first read by the author, love all her books I’ve read and a long time fan of her books. This is Book 9 and I ‘ve read all the previous books as well.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this one but learned that you never know what to expect from a LLV book. It’s always a fun, sexy and sweet surprise. This one was no different, right off the bat when their little VERY UNIQUE cute-meet happened. This is a unique story because of the medical condition of the heroine and not knew that the hero is alpha yes but in his own unique way himself. His dedication, loyalty and heart is something every man should strive to have. The side characters in this are perfectly pared, the scenes, actions..even a little suspense. All in all I don’t want to give out too much because this one was really unexpectedly unique in the best ways possible.
