True love never fades...

After surviving a troubled childhood, Denise can’t believe that she’s blissfully married to her partner and soulmate. She’s confident that not even Mason’s long-term, deep-cover assignment will shake their bond. And she certainly doesn’t anticipate that when he finally walks back through her door that he’ll have no memory of her, himself, or their t

Natalie ✩★ The Biblioholic ★✩
Stories about amnesiacs have always intrigued me. I've always wondered (not that I want to go through it, mind you) what it would be like to forget everything. To wake up to a world that was strange to you and inhabit the body of a stranger. To see these people around you that you're supposed to know, have a connection with, and feel and remember nothing at all. Broken With You did far more than intrigue me. It was sexy and intense and grabbed me by the guts, holding me in its thrall until t ...more

This book is part of a series. If you didn't read the 2 prior you will not get lost. It goes over a bit what has happened. I was lucky to get the two prior books through J. Kenner arc team. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get this one which broke my heart. Until i found it on Netgalley i requested it asap. I'm so happy I was approved to continue this great series.

I so wanted to see if Denise will get her happy ending. Denise husband has been away for two years on a secret government mission. She

J. Kenner hooked me with her Man of the Month series, and since then I’ve been meaning to read more of her work. With so many of her books being connected, I was unsure where to start. When a new series started, I decided to take the leap. Thus, I jumped into the Stark Security books. The first book, Shattered With You, hooked me, and I was left desperate for book two. Unfortunately, I wasn’t as crazy about Broken With You as I’d hoped to be.

There is no doubt in my mind that the second book in t

Hi! It's me again. I haven't read the first book in this series, but no worries. It's written as a stand alone and I wasn't lost for having missed the first one.

My heart broke for Denise when her husband, Mason/Jack, came back from his undercover mission with no memories of anything. Mean old Admiral wouldn't let her tell him anything. Of course, true love conquers all. The bad guys, and what they planned is the stuff nightmares are made of.

Mason is an undercover operative who was assignment for the last two years when contact was lost. He wakes up in an unknown hotel room with no memory of his past and the only thing he does remember is a telephone number. He now finds himself back home with no memory of anyone around him and the only person he feels drawn to is Denise.

This should be the happiest time of Denise’s life as the husband she thought she may have lost has returned. The only problem is he doesn’t remember her or their li

This. Was. So. EXCITING! I picked it up and could not put it down. I think I might have held my breath through those first chapters, I was riveted! I was pulled into all the turmoil and heartache, passion and love, and had to know how it would all play out. Loved it!

Mason and Denise were awesome characters. I could feel their pain, love, and need. I loved the conflict that they’re married but he doesn’t remember and the tension and turmoil it created. I felt bad for them and loved watching them

"I can't kiss him back to reality as if I'm a fairy tale princess and he's a prince trapped in a hundred year sleep.

I'm a lover of romantic suspense and broken characters and the Stark Security series is so addictive. The elite team members are carefully vetted based on their skills and that something extra special that makes them fit in well with the others. It's like they have this unspoken understanding of the hell they survived to make it to this point in their lives. They go beyond
2.5 stars

I got this book by this completely unknown to me author because I have recently developed a fascination with amnesia in romance novels. Always interested in how it gets deployed etc. and how well I think the author handles the concept.

This was ok.

Mason is an agent with some government agency where he goes under deep cover. His most recent recent mission has taken him deep for two years.

His wife Denise was also a member of the same agency and worked as his partner. But now she is with

I read the short story setting this up and I was really excited to read this title. I loved the idea of the woman who hadn't seen her husband for years, because he is undercover, and then getting to see him again. I thought this was a really interesting story to tell.

Unfortunately, it fell flat for me and I was never really all that engaged with the story or the characters. It wasn't what I was expecting, which wasn't the issue, as I understand that not all stories

I was pleasently suprised!
at first, i disliked the book, up til around 17%. Then it actually started to get interesting and i liked the two main characters Mason & Denise alot. The Author did an amazing job describing and holding me there to continue the story. Normally i don`t enjoy cover agent-stories but this one i really liked! Because it wasn`t always about it, and it wasn`t boring. I kind of needed to know what was going to happen between the two main characters, and really loved the pace.

“Broken with You” is the perfect quick read filled with action, angst and romance. The story rolls along at a fast pace, with action scenes that are well written and likeable characters. This the kind of book where once you start, you won’t be able to stop, the storyline was pretty interesting.
I enjoyed the intense connection between the quiet, emotionally battered hero Mason and his wife Denise, both working in the investigative field.

After being introduced to Denise ‘Denny’ Walker in Quincy and Eliza’s book, I was so ready for her story; I loved her grit, her snark, and her ability to get the job done by any means necessary. But all of her training and intelligence couldn’t prepare her for her next mission because, this time, it’s personal and her future as well as the future of her marriage depend on her ability to hide her overwhelming emotions and help Mason remember the information that’s locked in his head that he spent ...more

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is the second book in the series, and I think that you would understand some of the intricacies of the story far better if you had read the first in the series (and ideally all the Stark goodness, if you haven't already!)

Denise is waiting on her deep undercover husband to return to her. Other than one very non-sanctioned meet up on their anniversary, it has been two long years. We can only imagine how that must fee

I am in the happy place to say that I liked book two more than I liked book 1! In my previous review, I mentioned that I hoping for a better continuation in the series and I got it which is great. The book can be read as stand-alone, but I think you should read the series in order. The prequel of the series (Shadows of you, which is/was free) features Mason and Denise and the night he got her pregnant. Many people from the Stark universe appear in this story but their time was short and they wer ...more

Oh my goodness, if I could have kept life from creeping in and making me put my kindle down I would have read this in one sitting it was SO BLEEPING GOOD! Denise is frantic because her husband has been gone too long with no one hearing from him until she gets a call, the call she knew meant either he was back or gone forever. Turns out he is back, though not, because Mason doesn't remember he is Mason Walker, he has amnesia. He woke up in a motel in the middle of the desert having been beaten an ...more

I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads

This is really a second chance romance. It sucked me right in. Mason is not who he thinks he is... or rather, Jack isn't who he thinks he is...

This was a suspenseful story that had me cheering for the couple, their friends and the overall good guys.

Denise is trying so hard to make sure that she is living her life. However, wit
Believable and intense.

One of the themes I find gripping in romantic novels is amnesia. And here it is at the epicentre of a plot of suspense, espionage and a love story laced with longing and drama.

Mason is an operative whose undercover mission has gone awfully wrong, but the first thing we know about it is when he's suffering delirium and then pops up out of nowhere. His mind, twisted and half-empty.

The contrast with the heroine of the story is stark as she's also an agent who's been waiting

5 Star Review Broken With You (Stark Security #2) by J Kenner

Having read other books in the Stark world I could not wait to dive in and read Broken With You, which is the second book in the Stark Security series.

This is Denise and Mason’s story. Mason is a man who has no past; his memories lost. Will he get them back and in the process remember Denise, his wife who was his world? Or are his memories lost forever?

I really loved the characters of Denise and Mason; both have been through so much
Sissy's Romance Book Review
BROKEN WITH YOU by J. Kenner is book One in the Stark Security Series. This is the story of Denise 'Denny' Walker and Mason Walker. There is a Prequel book 'Shadows of You: A Stark Security' that introduces these characters but I feel this can be a standalone book.
Mason and Denise are married but due to Mason job it takes him away from her. This time he has been gone for two years and she doesn't know if he is alive or dead. Mason wakes up in a hotel room not knowing who or what he is but he doe

I once again enjoyed the stark security spin off. This was an unusable book for me a story of amnesia and a chance to fall in love all over again. This one starts a bit slower and a tad more confusing than book one and you get a case of wait who said that ? did I miss something? What is going on? And then you finally understand what is actually going on and the story just jets from there. You get the girly giggles as you hope and pray Mason falls in love with Denny again. I

I first got a glimpse of denise in another story from this story, or was it a novella ?! not sure, sorry, but I knew I wanted to know more cause the only details were that he was undercover and untraceable.
Now Mason is home but he doesn't remember anything, not even his wife..and if that isn't just heartbreaking..
their story, the connection they share even when he doesn't know how, the fact that they work together and danger is not far from them..oh boy, it was an emotional and suspenseful ride

J Kenner is a newer to me author. She is not one that I have found myself gravitating toward in the past, but I enjoyed many of her Man of the Month books. So I was curious to read more by her, and picked up Broken with You. I very much enjoyed the suspense aspect of this book, and I really liked the characters. The plot was a little different than the typical romance books that I've read, which is definitely a plus for me. And while it wasn't necessary, I do wish I had read the first book in th ...more

This was interesting story, sad at times, funny at others, with curve balls and an attraction that sizzled and scorched. I was compelled to finish it in a sitting, I could not put it down. This was also my first by the author so I have not read any of the others in the series or tie-ins which I did not feel was a problem. Honestly, I just enjoyed it and might just find myself reading the test of them at some point.

With enough emotion to rip out your heart and the right amount of sexiness and intrigue to ramp up the excitement, Broken With You has to be one of my favorite J. Kenner novels to date.

It’s difficult to know where to begin with this book, there was so much going on–and so many things I can’t mention for fear of giving away important plot points. But boy was J. Kenner in the zone here. Broken With You can be read as a standalone even th

This book blew me away, it broke my heart as I tried to imagine looking at the man I love and have him look back with no recognition of who I am, this book is an emotional roller coaster but it’s a ride you should jump on because I’m sure you will be as addicted as I am to the men and their partners from the Stark Security World.
