Stark After Dark is the complete collection of Damien and Nikki's novella and I can sum up all those books in one word. HOT!

I've said it before and I will say it again... I love J Kenner for writing more and more Damien and Nikki novellas. She keeps feeding this Damien and Nikki lover every single time she announces she is going to release a new Stark Ever After Novella.

All the novellas are quick but pack a punch leaving you wanting more after you finish. These books provide insight on Damien

Deliciously sexy, sweet and heartwarming—that’s what all of these book have. Kenner doesn’t disappoint with the continuation of these two fan favorites.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I will ever have enough of Nikki and Damien. These two made me fall in love with the genre and are always my go-to when I need to get out of a book funk. I have read and reviewed each of these novellas separately and I think it is brilliant J. Kenner has put all of these spectacular books together.

Stark After Dark is the perfect title for the collection of novellas that continue to provide readers with insights of Damien and Nikki Starks’ life after their wedding. Each story showcases what readers have loved about this couple from the beginning – the way they infuse both fantasy and reality into their relationship and the way they take care of each other regardless of what or who rears their heads at them.

J.Kenner’s Stark Trilogy has a very special place in my heart, this series was among my first #AFSoG reads and Damien & Nikki’s story has stayed with me. I have honestly lost count of the number of times that I read each book in this series – to this day, I am completely enamored. Kenner gave us a couple that faced down and beat back their challengers and enemies; in the end, standing strong for each other. THEN there are the novellas. I devoured each and every one, because J. Kenner found new a ...more

4.5 Sizzling Stars!!

Oh how I love Damien Stark!!! He's found his perfect match in Nikki Fairchild. To have four of the novellas put into one book is fabulous beyond words because I can just read back to back to back. We get the wedding, the honeymoon (Damien style) to their first Valentine's Day as a married couple and then as if they need any spicing up, they're living out a fantasy which just takes it up just another notch....

One of the things I love most about Damien is how he is everythi

I read all these separately not too long ago. I'm so glad they put them in an anthology.

Take Me
The wedding! As usual nothing goes as planned but still ends up perfect!

Have Me
Not sure how I missed this one but I'm glad I read it. I forgot how much I loved Damien and Nikki. This was a nice little taste of their honeymoon.

Such a cute story full of romance and adventure. If you haven't met Nikki and Damien yet then I suggest you do.

This book is filled with four anthologies about Damien and Nikki. It starts with them planning for there wonderful wedding. I love how these stories were back to back and I definitely loved that I got more Damien.

Of course those who have been married know that no wedding day is perfect and I loved how Kenner showed that. From Nikki's mother showing up to people breaking into there hotel room on their honeymoon.

And of course in Jenner fashion you get lots of hot scenes and suspense added in the

Enjoyable Read

This was an enjoyable read although not as good as the first 3 books in the Stark Series. Not much of a storyline, it mainly flitted between Nikki’s insecurity and their sex life.
I’d recommend these to anyone who loves the Stark Series and wanted a bit more of their story though it’s a bit slow it’s still an enjoyable read. Even though it’s supposed to be 4 separate books they’re very short and there’s not much more than one book in total.
I’d recommend these to anyone who’s falle

Stark After Dark is complete with 4 Awesome short stories to warm up your winter blues. It’s the ultimate Damien and Nikki guide. There is no such thing as “too much Damien Stark”. Author J. Kenner can write a novella each month and I will devour it like candy.

My Damien obsession started September 2013. After almost 3 years, it feels like I just completed book #3, Complete Me last week. When I saw all four novellas as an anthology, it was the perfect opportunity. With a bonus, it read as if it

Note: This ARC was provided by Bantam Books in exchange for an honest review.

Take Me features Damien and Nikki making preparations for their impending nuptials, but meddlesome people present more problems than solutions, taking away the thrill for the already anxious bride. Have Me has the happy couple basking in marital bliss, but Damien's plans to make their honeymoon a memorable one for Nikki go awry when their privacy is inevitably invaded

Final Score - 5 Scorching FLAMES of Stars!!!

Nikki & Damien are BACK... still as freaky, still as ingenious as ever. Keeping those home-fires burning. Playing their little games. From the land of Honeymoons to settling in as newlyweds, they hopelessly still "in the bubble of love".

Of course, all god things must come to an end when they get back to the land of Reality, right?

Unfortunately, all too right! But they did manage to squeeze in some sexy time & games galore!

Well, what a sizzler of a read. I am still fanning myself while gazing out my study's window at 2 feet of snow. Stark After Dark by J. Kenner has provided me with such a rush of exciting teasing, titillating erotic roller coaster ride which has me breathless with desire. Stark After Dark is an exciting, sensual read that is a keeper and a book that can be read more than once.

Ms. Kenner has her pen poised to hit all the sensory nerve centers in the human body. Whew!

Gah just when i thought my Damien addiction had been fed and was gone away, I get my handles on this little thing.. and there it is.. MY ADDICTION IS BACK. How can we not be addicted to Damien and Nikki?

Damien and Nikki are one of the most erotic couples out there. And I love that no matter where they are or what they do, they just know what the other one needs. And J Kenner surely did fulfill those needs in STARK AFTER DARK.

Not only do we get a little bit of drama in each novella, we also get

I first read about Damien Stark a few years ago, and to this day, I still take any crumb I can get about Damien and Nikki, they are so memorable. Stark After Dark is a prime example of a perfect follow-up book to an amazing series. You may have read these before, but having them all in one spot makes the writing flow and the memories surface. These novellas are all put into one anthology, and follow Damien and Nikki from their wedding, to their honeymoon, to a very memorable first Valentine's Da ...more

This is a collection of the novellas after Damien and Nikki's trilogy. Now they are all together and we can read them all in a row.

This is the icing on the cake... wedding cake that is! After they elope and go off to get married and honeymoon, their stories are still precious. Life with Damien is never boring and how they adjust to married life and the obstacles life brings are stories we all want to read.

Really enjoyed reading these. Being a Damien fan, he is so swoon worthy, it is a treat to c

I loved catching up with Damien and Nikki as they prepare for their wedding. This one was worth the 5 stars for the interactions with Nikki's Mom alone!
