This is my first J. Kenner book. I was alittle concerned about reading this one as it is the 3rd in a series. I will say that I had no problem understanding who anyone was and what their relationship was with each other. The author gave information that made me feel perfectly content reading.

Cole August is an artist and self made man. He had a hard life and despite his past made something of himself. But his past has scarred him and made him isolated about dating and

In this final installment of the Most Wanted erotica series, J. Kenner brings you Cole and Katrina's story. This series centers around three friends and business partners who are no strangers to the kinkier side of things in the bedroom.

3 - "Whatever you want, however you want it." Stars.

I am going to be honest and say I think Julie Kenner has run out of steam with this one. Ignited was like a 'greatest hits' of tropes that have been used (sometimes more than once) in this series and the Stark books previously.

”You’re a hard limit for me, blondie. And that’s just the way it is.”

Don't get me wrong the writing is still excellent, the sex still original, unusual and extremely sensual. But the rest of the story... I think it is

If this hadn’t been my sixth J. Kenner book, I’d probably be loving life a little more than I am right now. What started out as a fun fantasy has turned more than a little crazy. Sure, I’ll freely admit I have a problem and thy name is book smut (aka book porn). When I discovered this little bastard about the time people were talking up Fifty Shades Of Grey like it was the second coming of Playboy, I became more than a little curious. So I dipped my hand in Release Me, and the next thing I knew ...more

We all remember Kat & Cole from the previous two books.

Cole is one of our three hot guys

...and all I wanted was to taste him.

Three of Chicago's most famous (infamous) businessmen.

Cole and Tyler just opened a new Gallery - Cole is an artist himself.

Art was his passion...

He didn't have the best life growing up. There were gangs and bad decisions, but he left all that behind and is now, among other things, (like owning a strip-club )

a very rich gallery owner.

We’ve met Evan and Tyler... now it’s time to meet Cole.


Cole isn’t one to reveal too much of just who he is. Even the men closest to him don’t know the whole truth. The mystery of this man coupled with his intensity is hard to resist and Katrina is tired of trying.

Her whole life has been one con after the other, finally ready grow roots and stay in one place. Once she realizes her desire for Cole is too strong to resist she isn’t going to let him continue to push her away. Getting him to give

Ignited was one word to truly described the passion and connection of Cole August and Katrina Laron. Cole has always been the mysterious and dark one of the Knights. His past has hardened him and left him with emotional scars and demons. He has walls surrounding his heart till finally he sucummbed to his desires and let the only woman he wanted in, Kat.

There was no denying the passion and intensity brewing between Cole
Jamie *Gypsy Smut-a-teer*
I really liked this series. Each "Knight" was hot, sexy, mysterious, and protective. And, I loved their women as well. They were brave, independent, and totally knew what they wanted and were willing to have to fight for it.

Cole was for sure, the hardest case to crack. He had the most difficult childhood it seemed and seemed to struggle the most as an adult as far as getting close to people. Kat knew she wanted Cole, she just didn't know how much until she got a taste of him. I loved the push

It was better than the last two books. But still the main female was not challenging enough at least in my opinion. I found the main heroine to desperate and I think she should have at least slowly get him to come to her.. It was nice to read on Nikki and Damien. Glad to see they both are doing alright.

I wish I could say that I enjoyed this book more. I found it to be lacking in the "story" department. I understand that this book is considered erotica, but even when I read erotica, I'm expecting a story of some kind.

The book began with Katrina's pursuit of Cole. She wanted him in bed but he was battling some personal demons. There was a lot of back and forth in the beginning where he was arguing with himself

DNF at 40%. I just can't connect to the characters. A lot of silliness. Heroine getting upset with H but doesn't allow enough time for explanations. H constantly saying no then yes. Just not my thing.

I was looking forward this one, because for some reason I really like Cole even though he was not much present in the previous books, so the only star is for him, because the writing wasn't very good and the non-existent plot was not good either. Main character Kat was just bad. Every second sentence she was crying or she felt like it. I should had made a mark every time she did it and I am pretty sure I would get a nice big number. I am so glad that I am done with this series. I kind of regret ...more
*Audiobook review: Narration by Kelly Ashton

Lovers of the BDSM sub-genre of romance, will not want to miss Ignited, book 3 of the Most Wanted series. Bearing all of the classic trademark qualities of successful books of this sub-genre, Ignited delivers both scorching hot scenes along with the evolution and unpeeling of emotional barriers built by past dark secrets. Moreover, the characters are complex, the passion is intense and the ultimate message: that love can heal all, is inspiring.

Cole August – the darkest of the three Knights…the one with the hardest past…the one who feels like he doesn’t deserve the woman he wants because she won’t be able to handle the kind of lifestyle he craves and needs to hold himself together.

Kat Laron – a grifter her whole life…a conman who knows how to lie and deceive with ease…a woman who stays away from relationships and men…a woman who craves a man so desperately that she makes it her mission to seduce him if only to have one night with him.

Oh my heavens! Things just got a LOT more steamy in the Most Wanted series. I really hate to say this since Evan Black still had a hold of my heart when I started this book, but I think Cole might have stole it. With his dirty talking ways and his tortured soul he about did me in. Then there's Kat, an utterly terrific heroine. She could not have been more perfect for Cole. She pushed when he needed it, and submitted when he demanded. Together they were a perfectly in sync.

This was a very interesting story. I enjoyed the characters, the secrets and the drama, but it overall it didn't fully peak my love. Compared to the other two novels (Wanted and Heated>/i>) this wasn't something I could say I loved.

Cole is a very dangerous man with a haunting past. He grew up as a "crack baby" thanks to his mother's addiction when he was in her belly. He loses his temper, kills and enjoys illegal business as much as he does the legal ones. He gets off on pain whether it's

Our long awaited story about Cole is everything I hoped it would be and more. It’s sexy and edgy and completely doused in passion. I knew Kenner would give Cole a captivating plot line and we would finally get some answers about his past. What I wasn’t expecting was for Kat to match him head on with her own secrets and past discretions. When these two finally connect and begin to create their

Kenner never fails to serve a reader what they deeply desire the most...

This being the third book of the MOST WANTED trilogy, K. Jenner tells the last story of the three knights.

Between Cole and Kat's undeniable connection with one another and there mutual longing for each other, there is no way cupid missed his shot, but might as well've been a fucked up arrow.

Katrina Laron finally decides to act out on her long-term crush, obsession, with Cole August. Little does she know that her crush is

This book is great! I was hooked from the first page. Cole and Kat’s story is intense, hot, sexy and full of surprises. This book had me fanning myself with the kinky and vanilla sex scenes. Super HOT! I liked the plot in this book, how it was connected to the other two books, and most of all, the friendship they all have.

I liked Kat from the other books and reading her POV was awesome. She’s a very determined person, decided and she does what it has to be done for the greater good. The way she
Thanks to the publishers and Netgalley for the review copy of this book.

Ignited is the 3rd book in Julie Kenner's Wanted series. I have not yet read the first two books, so I was curious as to how much I'd be missing by skipping them. I didn't have any trouble following the events in this book, even if I wasn't familiar with all the characters. Reading the blurbs for the previous two books, I think, did just fine.

This book reads very much like other books I've read by this author. The writing

I am a huge Julie Kenner fan so let me say that straight out. I think she writes wonderfully complex, compelling characters with steamy schmexy scenes to go with them. Ignited is no exception! I loved Wanted and Heated too so I had high hopes for this book and it didn't disappoint. I actually read it coming back from a vacation in Scotland. I was exhausted and just really wanted to sleep but I couldn't put this book down until the last word was read. I read it in one sitting, which is unusual ...more

So we've met Evan, and we've met Tyler, and now we have Cole -

Cole seems to me the harder of the 3 Knights - His past was a little more harsh than the other two - Cole had a temper and was well known for that.

Kat wants Cole , and is determined to get him - no matter what.

Cole wants Kat, and will keep her away from him, no matter what.
See the problem?

But Kat is really stubborn - she has a way of getting what she wants - it's how she was raised.

But when Kat realizes that Pain is something

This is Kenner's third book in the Most Wanted series. Cole and Kat get their turn at finding love. This book, though part of a series could be enjoyed as a stand alone, but is likely best read in order. Both Cole and Kat have issues from their past and Kat's past in particular comes back to give the new couple trouble. We learn the Cole not only likes but due to his past feels the need for the kink. He needs pain, whether to give or receive. Kat, sexually frustrated from a past

Ignited by J. Jenner is a first reads win and I am giving my Horst opinion. Sometimes, you look at someone and you connect. The eyes are the doors to your soul. The chemistry is there and you wonder why you haven't gone out yet. Shyness? Could be. Forward? You ought to be. Fear? Another possibility that is more accurate. So it is with Caterina and Cole. But not the usual fear. Cole is afraid hell hurt Cat. Not emotional hurt. A physical hurt. He's got a hang up about sex and a sick love life. In ...more

Another great story in the Most Wanted series, but not my favorite of the three. Cole is all kinds of hot, but man does he have his issues. But once you learn the story, it becomes crystal clear why he is the way he is. How he deals with everything he's carrying inside might just be too much for Kat to handle.

Kat also has her own issues, that are brought to the fore-front when her father shows up needing help, and that is the
