I knew better than to risk my heart.
But fierce passion comes at a high price.

I grew up believing in right and wrong, good and evil, black and white. I knew better than to trust. And then I met Tyler Sharp.

Bold, charming, and dangerously sexy, Tyler always gets what he wants. But his smile can be deceiving, his dealings sordid, his ambitions ruthless. I thought I was the

4 HOT stars!!!

Heated is part two in J. Kenner’s Most Wanted series. In the first book, we meet three guys known as the Knights. One of them is Tyler Sharp.

Detective Sloane is on a mission. To find her friend, to make sure she’s safe, then to go back to Indiana. She loves being a cop. It’s her job to uphold the law. She doesn’t trust easily and it’s for good reason.
Don’t take anything for granted and don’t trust anyone. I guess that makes me cynical. But it also makes me a damn good cop.

In the second installment of the Most Wanted Series we meet Tyler Sharp. One third of the Knights, three men who may appear to be find upstanding citizens but appearances can be deceiving.

Maybe I had Days of Thunder on my brain when I read this novel. Before you ask me what the hell I’m talking about, I’ll tell you. The scene with the moonshine and commuting across state lines and telling stories reminded me of home, and when the female trooper gives Cole Trickle a thorough frisking and then rips open the top part of her state trooper’s uniform, all I could say is “Damn!” Yeah, this novel was like that. Only it was 416 pages of bodice-ripping good times. To the point that I was ...more

I wanted to love this book as I felt like I waited forever and even had my heartbroken with a netgalley denial, lol! Book 1 in this series blew me away and I wanted more mystique, more bad behavior, and more dark alpha brooding...I wanted more EVAN, but unfortunately Tyler's tale just didn't live up to the bar that the previous book set.

This is the second book in J. Kenner's Most Wanted series, and I really wanted to like it. I was also really happy to be given an ARC for it. I really liked the first one Wanted but I have to admit that this book did noting for me and it pains me to say that. I will also admit that I am one of those people that cannot not finish a book, it is just against my nature to DNF a book, however I have to admit that

3.5 - "Giving in to temptation is one of the few pleasures in life." Stars!

Heated is book two in the Most Wanted Series, and in this instalment we are given a look into the mind, body and business of Tyler Sharp. Detective Sloane Watson is in Chicago looking for information on an old friend/informant who has disappeared off the radar, her last known whereabouts Destiny, the club owned by Tyler, Evan and Cole.

Sweet Jesus Tyler is so different from Evan and I loved it, the one thing all these men have in common in this series (alright a FEW things) is they're hot and cocky, "does she?" His attention stayed full on my face, and I thought for a moment that if I stepped closer, I would drown in those liquid eyes. "Funny," he said. "She's just the woman I want, too." I mean the boy oozes sex, "he laughed, which really wasn't what I was going for, and his smile was just a little too smug. "Oh, yeah," he ...more

This book was incredibly dumb for a variety of reasons. To me, both main characters (female and male romantic leads) came off as stage-five clingers with their psychotic and obsessive behavior. It surprised and befuddled that neither one of them was alarmed by how idiotic they were both behaving. It appeared as though neither one of them had a lick of common sense or hesitancy between them even though one was the youngest female to make detective in Indiana and the other was an astute, ...more

I only liked the main guy. The female heroine annoyed the shit out of me. And plus I didn't feel she was not challenging enough even for being a cop. She seemed like more careless person than caring

Holy fucking shit balls was this book good!
This book is about the sexy knight Tyler Sharp.
Sloane is a detective from Indiana who is looking for her friends friend Amy. ( Oddly I starting singing if you seek amy)
Tyler doesn’t have quite the dirty mouth as Evan but good god does he make a woman trip over her drool. He is romantic even when he breaks into apartments.
Every time I read a Kenner book I think I cant possibly fall in love with another man… and every
Love this series!
This story was hot and sexy! I really enjoyed these characters too. They are different but have such a great connection. Tyler is hot, sexy, and all alpha male, is a nice guy, but not completely upstanding. Olivia is hot and an officer . She is looking for her friend and needs the help of Tyler. That connection leads them into some steamy moments while they team up to try and find her friend. As they get to know each other Olivia is left questioning who she is or how can she

I like it more then then I liked the 1st in the series. Tyler has many talents :>

This was an amazing companion novel! I quite enjoyed this more than the first book surprisingly. The romance, characters and story line were extremely fun.

Tyler Sharp is such a hot man. Not hotter than Evan to me, but his story was much more interesting. He is one of the three knights and makes sure he gets what he wants. He's only been in love once, but got hurt and unknowingly decided to avoid love. He had sex with women, but never took it further than that. I love how strong he was in his

I received an advanced readers copy of this book from Random House Publishing Group - Bantam via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. The expected publication date is June 3, 2014.

Heated is the second book in the Most Wanted series but can be read as a stand alone. I did read Wanted, the first book, but have no doubt that I could have still followed along if I hadn't. The first book was about Evan and this one is about Tyler
Miep at The Review Loft
This book had the recipe to be a 5 star read. It had a sexy, rick, mysterious, alpha male who knows how to talk dirty and give it the heroine just as she likes it. The problem was it was to insta love for me. The story had hardly developed and Slone and Tyler were already in love. They saw each other from a distance and you knew exactly what the author was going to say next. The book also had pages, pages, and pages of sex scenes and I know this is an erotica romance but at what point is it too ...more

Whew...domineering Tyler!!! He gets what wants, how he wants it and he will describe how he is going to do it. Hold on tight....Tyler will make you squirm and blush! :)

Sloane is a cop that is on medical leave that is helping a friend look into why her friend has sorda mysteriously left. Her leaving just doesn't add up and with Sloane being a detective, thought she could be the best help.

Amy was working for Tyler at club Destiny. Sloane feels the best way to find out is to get a job there

3.5 stars!! I love J Kenner's books but for some reason this series just isn't doing it for me. I love the premise and actually love the characters but for me nothing is gelling well together. These books are extremely fast paced as each book is about one character in particular and I think that because J Kenner is used to trilogies and taking her time with that character build up and connection that part of her writing that I love is missing. This book will melt your kindles though, as usual J ...more

I enjoyed this book more than book 1 because the intensity remained throughout the whole story. I am loving these alpha Knights!
You know those books...the ones where, when you close them, you let out a satisfied sigh? Yep, this is one.
Two words--bath scene. Hands down a hot scene. Well, okay, there were lots of hot scenes.

This is below average compared to Bared to you and even Fifty Shades of Grey was impressive than this book. The sex was too long and boring. Not my cup of tea.

Truthfully I was a little conflicted with Heated. This was absolutely a highly anticipated book that I made sure to get an ARC of because no way in hell was I going to wait for its release! It's going to be painful to wait for Ignited, so hopefully the powers that be will bless me with an ARC of that as well. *please & thank you*

Here's why I struggled. Over half the book was a hook up and the main characters falling for each other; don't get me wrong, both those things are absolutely

It was ok -- two stars. Liked it -- three stars. I have to give this one two stars. So much of this book moved at a snail's torturous pace. The first eleven chapters about the first meeting and evening together and absolutely no action. The "mystery" resolved in less than one chapter is another example why this book is just not doing it for me. The big secrets are another problem. They are just resolved too quickly with too much emphasis on the sex scenes that create very little actually heat.

Why is it that criminals always seem to be one step ahead of the cops? For those who enjoy J.D. Robb's Eve Dallas Series, this is in the same flavour with a female cop and a questionable businessman. This is where the similarities end. Heated is lighter on the investigation and heavier on the kinky erotica. Sloane O'Dell is a cop on a leave of absence. Recovering from her gunshot wound, her good friend Candy asked her to look into a missing friend. Amy worked at a strip club in Chicago. She ...more

I fell in love with J. Kenner's writing with the Stark Trilogy so I was so excited with this series. I started with Wanted but was left with 'meh' but I am a loyal reader so I gave Heated a try but sadly I was left with another 'meh'.

The idea of the series is great but for some reason this series is just not doing it for me. I don't quite know what is not grabbing me. It could be the fast paced

• I’m not actually planning to read this. I really didn’t enjoy that first book that much.
Then I saw it on NetGalley saw its synopsis. So I tried requesting but there’s so region restriction… Then, I saw it on Eideleiss and I’m so pleased that there are no region restrictions. Then I got approved and started reading it. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
