Sometimes, it feels so damn good to be bad …

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?

This erotically charged romance will have you buzzing from head to toe! 

For those of you who have never set foot in the Stark World, or if you’ve only dipped your little toe in, you are not alone! I must admit with some hesitancy that I am still a Stark Trilogy virgin. I have read the S.I.N. series, so I’m not completely in the dark with Damien Stark. I know that J. Kenner is an amazing writer when it comes to erotic romance, so when I heard that she was giving us the STARK WORLD series, I was so ecstatic to dive back into that sexy and enticing world. WICKED GRIND is only book one, but it got me HELLA excited for this series FOR SURE! This features Wyatt Royce and Kelsey Draper, and it is a second-chance love story that will totally titillate your senses from page one.

Twelve years ago, Kelsey got under Wyatt’s skin, and coming face to face with her all these years later, he realizes she never left. But she did break his heart with no explanation at all, and it doesn’t seem like she’s giving up the goods anytime soon. Wyatt has been searching for his muse, and when Kelsey Draper walks into his studio, he knows deep in his heart, it was always her, but he’s doesn’t have to like it one bit. Kelsey is just as stunned to see Wyatt again, but she is determined to break out of her mold, and if that means dealing with the uproar of Wyatt Royce’s attitude, then so be it. These two are fire and ice…oil and water…good and bad, but that doesn’t stop their connection from reigniting, into something so fierce. Wyatt wants all the control. Kelsey knows that if she gives him this, he will destroy her, but the Wyatt’s pull is just to great. So they enter into an agreement that ends up being so much more.

You guys! I LOVED THIS BOOK! I loved these characters. The sexual tension poured off of each and every page, and just made me yearn for more. This was a very SEDUCTIVE and PASSIONATE read that made me blush on multiple occasions. It was fast-paced, sexy, and oh so dirty! I can’t wait to see where this series takes us next!
