The S.I.N. series continues with the seductive follow-up to the Stark International Novel Dirtiest Secret, from the New York Times bestselling author of “red-hot and angsty” fiction that “keeps readers guessing” (Publishers Weekly, on Under My Skin).

No one can know about our love—and hiding only makes it hotter.

Dallas Sykes has a reputation. He is known for his parties, his money, and the countless women on his arm. Yet the Dallas I know is a different man—darker, smarter, and unbearably sexy. Just one look from him can leave me breathless; the anticipation of his touch can make me lose control.

Inextricably bound by our past, we keep each other’s secrets. And while there are people who have the power to hurt us, it’s the truth that threatens us most of all.

Dallas can be mine only behind closed doors, our passion as searing as it is forbidden. Yet nothing in this world has ever felt so desperately, deliciously right.

my thoughts

OMG! Those last couple of chapters about KILLED me!!! I’m LOVING this series! It’s exciting. It’s intense. It’s deliciously forbidden!

This decadent read will take you to a dark and sexy place. It’s filled to the brim with HOT sex, FORBIDDEN pleasure, and so much SUSPENSE, you will be on the edge of your seat the whole way through. Dallas and Jane have secrets. These secrets have the potential to destroy everything, including the intense and passionate connection they share. This is a dangerous game that they are playing, and it could cost them everything they hold dear. HOTTEST MESS is the follow-up to Dirtiest Secret and it’s even more intense, even more dark than the first. It keeps getting better and better, and I for one, am ALL IN for this sexy and sensual ride.

“I’ve always owned you.”

Secrets have always been familiar territory, but at what cost? It’s what is keeping them together…it’s what has the potential to tear them apart.

I’ve never wanted to root so hard for a couple, then I do for Dallas and Jane. What they’ve been through, they deserve a little happiness, but I have a feeling that that’s a long way off. So many ups and downs, in between so many twists and turns…you will barely catch your breath by the very end. HOTTEST MESS is the second installment of J. Kenner’s hot and intense S.I.N. series. It is NOT a standalone and must be read after Dirtiest Secret. Jump on this sensual journey of lies and deception. Get sucked it…it will feel OH SO GOOD!

JK has been praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a “flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations” and by RT Bookclub for having “cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them.” A five time finalist for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA award, JK took home the first RITA trophy awarded in the category of erotic romance in 2014 for her novel, Claim Me (book 2 of her Stark Trilogy).
