All eyes are on us . . . and there’s nowhere to run.

Everyone has their own ideas about Dallas Sykes: He’s a reckless billionaire, a devilish playboy, a man who gets whatever he wants the minute he wants it. But I know the real Dallas behind the money, bravado, and power—and he’s completely, blissfully mine.

We carefully guarded our secrets, and in each other’s arms we sought refuge from our dark past. Our pain became our pleasure, our control within the chaos. But we could only hide from the truth for so long.

Now we’ve let loose our inhibitions and are ready to face the future. And no matter what people think or say, coming clean is its own sweet reward.

my thoughts

A passionate, suspenseful, and intense romance with a dash of delicious taboo!

Dallas and Jane. These two have been through so much together and with SWEETEST TABOO, we finally reach their long-awaited and well deserved happily ever after. J. Kenner couldn’t have given her readers a more beautiful couple with these two. Their love knows no bounds. It’s so deep…it’s so passionate…it’s so unforgiving. For all of you who are still reeling from the cliffhanger of HOTTEST MESS, take a deep breath and hold on tight, because this book will take you on one hell of a ride. You will have to fight right alongside these characters to get to their happy ending. It’s not going to be easy. There will be frustration, anger, shouts, and tears…lots of tears, but it will be well worth it in the end.

Can love survive, if both of you are being chased by demons of the past? Dallas and Jane went through something horrible when they were younger, and the past just doesn’t want to rest. On top of the fact that their secret is out, and they have to deal with the scrutiny of their family and the press, the monster that they thought perished all those years ago, is back and is more determined than ever. Remember when I said that their love knows no bounds…well, that is put to the test when the nightmares of their past comes back in full force.

Sexy, sweet, passionate, invigorating, intense, and incredibly scandalous…SWEETEST TABOO gave me the ride of a lifetime. Fans of the Stark Series, I don’t know about you, but Dallas Sykes just got bumped up to the top of my list of J. Kenner’s sexiest heroes list.

It was bittersweet that this series had to end, but the intoxicating journey was well worth it. This series will be a definite re-read for me in the future.

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). Her Demon Hunting Soccer Mom series (as Julie Kenner) is currently in development with AwesomenessTV/Awestruck.
