Review: J. Kenner’s UNDER MY SKIN

Under My Skin J. Kenner

Today we’re delighted to post a review of J. Kenner‘s latest release, Under My Skin, from Gretchen at Here’s the synopsis, followed by the review (spoiler: it’s a rave!)

Jackson Steele and Sylvia Brooks are back in the powerful finale of a provocative, sizzling-hot new erotic trilogy set in the world of J. Kenner’s beloved Stark novels: Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me.

He’s the only man I’ve ever loved, and the one man I can’t bear to lose.

Jackson Steele is my light in this world. Charismatic, bold, and always in control, he knows what he wants and how to get it—and absolutely nothing stands in his way. His hold on me is magnetic, his claim on me complete, his kiss my ultimate escape.

We both harbor dark secrets that could tear our lives apart. Though we’ve tried to bury our pasts, there are certain people who won’t let us forget. But the closer danger comes, the brighter the fire between us burns—our ecstasy consuming and soothing us both.

There’s no telling what lies ahead, but I know that Jackson never gives in without a fight. I’d do anything he wants to keep him safe, give him anything he needs. And now that we’re in deep, nothing can make me run.

Under My Skin is intended for mature audiences.

5 out of 5 stars

Wow. Seriously, just WOW. This was spectacular. Perfect ending to the trilogy. Loved it immensely! Amazingly well written with detailed and complicated characters that are full of raw emotion, passion, and intensity.

Sylvia and Jackson have a captivating story and I was lost to it. I could feel their insecurities and vulnerabilities as they went through all of their ups and downs. I loved in the midst of everything, they still had so much strength. Sylvia’s especially blows me away realizing just how far she has come, grown, and accepted certain things since book one. She’s pretty phenomenal. I’m a big Jackson fan and his intensity, courage, and power really resonate with me and I love how he held himself. When Jackson and Sylvia are intimate, their passion is explosive and filled with wild desire. Besides it being really hot sex, it’s so much more. They have this sexual connection that’s crazy intense but it’s also beautiful, because they can truly lose themselves in the other with no judgment. You not only feel that sensuality, but that true connection.

I had so many lingering questions and I was on the edge of my seat while I got all my answers, it was intense and emotional! Couldn’t read fast enough! It had this incredible build as all the secrets and details were learned and I thought everything was revealed at the perfect time.

There are several relationships happening besides Sylvia and Jackson’s and those growing connections made me so happy. I have loved Damien forever so seeing him connect with Jackson was a treat. I also adore how Ronnie came into play and how that was handled.

Excellent story, build, well developed, great pace. It was drama filled, heartbreaking, sexy, and full of second chances. I think I held my breath the last 25% with my hand covering my mouth because I was so riveted by what was happening.

I think this series is J. Kenner’s best work to date. The Stark International Trilogy is a must read!
