EEEEEP!!! Nikki and Damien Stark are back with another FULL-LENGTH-NOVEL!


I hope we'll get books and novellas about the Starks forever and ever and ever!☺

This time we finally have Damien's point of view!

And he starts with a little back-in-time moment to Dallas - when he met Nikki at that beauty pageant!

He knew right away that she was the one for him, but it took six years until she was finally his. Adorable.

It's been a week since their little girl Anne has been home after the kidnapping. And poo

2019 is the year for me to get really back into my love of reading and thanks to J. Kenner, she has reminded me once again why I fell in love with her books. The story of Damien and Nikki have always held a special spot in my heart. These two had an intense passion and connection like no other and so for all their trials and tribulations, it is no surprise that their love, trust and lives are tested once again in Damien.

I’ve devoured every word related to Damien Stark, Nikki Fairchild and Stark International, and have been dying to get a true peek inside Damien’s head. And, whoa, did I ever in this brilliant, “didn’t put it down until I read every word” book. Seriously, if I could rate Damien 10, 20, 30 stars I would.

Damien’s all encompassing love, devotion and need to protect at all costs dominance leaps off the pages of this book. Damien picks up just where Lost With Me ended and takes off running. I couldn’

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date January 8, 2019

I am Damien Stark. From the outside, I have a perfect life. A billionaire with a beautiful family. But if you could see inside my head, you’d know I’m as f-ed up as a person can be. Now more than ever.

I’m driven, relentless, and successful, but all of that means nothing without my wife and daughters. They’re my entire world, and I failed them. Now I can barely look at them without drowning in an abyss of s

"His. No matter how much he fucked up, no matter how far off the path he strayed, she would always be his. Always be his beacon back home again. Back to her."

This amazing story has been a long time coming and it was well worth the wait. Damien is a man that knows how to keep a secret and I've been dying to get inside his head. I agree that "In the cutthroat world of buying and selling the universe, it was handy to have a reputation as a major badass." But, it was also that reputation that pu

i will never ever get enough of this series and the characters that are in it because Ms Kenner does such an amazing job writing each and every installment.  If we thought that we had enough drama in the last installment, well even more is packed here. 

We start off getting into the head of Damien, six years ago when he first crossed paths with Nikki at a pageant in Texas.  We've heard the story before, that he was a judge and she was competing and there was a spark, but that nothing could come o

I fell in love with the story about Nikki and Damien long time ago. I was so happy and excited when I've heard that J.Kenner wrote more about them, especially from Damien POV. It was great to come back to their world like a visit from an old best friends.
Note: If you haven't read previous Stark Saga books, then you should start from the beginning to truly understand whole story. There can be some spoilers in my review.

5 books and I don't know how many novellas later we got Damien's book! An entire book from his point of view as we have been asking for a long long time! I wasn't expecting everything we got and a few things came as a surprise to me. During the 27441791 stories about Nikki and Damien, he always seemed to be the kind of man who doesn't let anything bring him down and nothing can shake him. He was the one supporting Nikki and their relationship was rarely about the other way. In this book we I saw ...more

Safety is an illusion to a man like Damien unless he can be assured he has all under control. After his daughter Anne's kidnapping, he has taken extreme measures to increase the protection around his family. But is this enough?

In this book, we get to understand just how deeply Damien's guilt runs as he tries to regain control of what surrounds him. Interestingly enough though, no matter how much he has tried to ensure his family's safety, not all closest to him should be trusted and they are abo

Oh Damien...this is the latest book in the Stark series and for the first time, told entirely from Damien’s POV. We have seen Nikki side and it is what made me fall in live with this couple and their world but seeing life through Damien’s eyes is an experience in itself. I am amazed that this author is able to make such a strong and powerful character, vulnerable and scared. Especially since we have come to love him being the rock for everyone else.

There's no BS with Nikki when she's talking to her man, "her eyes narrowed as she studied him, obviously trying to read his mind. “Bull****. We make our own luck, Damien. You’ve told me so over and over again.” Damien takes some serious disrespect when his woman isn't being treating well, “and I’m the one with the money and the power to make your life miserable if I don’t like the tone you take with my wife. Are we clear?” I loved being inside Damien's head, I enjoyed reading things from his per ...more

Another good Damien and Nikki story.

This one did not go at all the way I expected! Truthfully, I’m glad it took the path it did. There is peace and maybe a real chance at a HEA.

Their love story continues, each holding the other up, truly seeing the other. They are husband and wife, mom and dad, brother, sister, best friend, partner, etc. A lifetime with these two is not enough. I’m honestly hoping for Quincy’s story...what do you think? 😉

We finally get a book told in Damien's POV and I freaking loved it. You see what he thinks about Nikki and everything that goes on his head and world. How he beats himself up and the memories he's keeping. The chemistry between Damien and Nikki is intense that you can't help but love them both. His brain is truly a piece of art.

This is what fans of J. Kenner’s Stark saga have been waiting for–Damien’s book, told strictly from his POV!! And oh just you wait until you get an up close and personal look into the fascinating mind of this business legend and his thoughts on his wife and daughters, the loves of his life. One word: swoon.

Damien Stark has become one of those larger than life characters who instantly steals the show whenever J. Kenner adds him to

I've never made it a secret that I love this series and J. Kenner giving us all those novellas were just the kind of icing I wanted and couldn't have enough of but now at this stage, I think it is time to give up on these characters.

With this book, Kenner was giving us insight into Damien's mind and I don't know... It just didn't seem convincing and honestly, I have a few issues with this book:

Damien Stark and Nikki have been one of my favorite book couples since J. Kenner introduced them to her readers in their very first book, Release Me; their love story is one full of passion, devastation, heartbreak, suspense, love, and sacrifice. But through all of the obstacles that they’ve faced, both individually and as a couple, the one thing that has always been clear is that they are the other half of one another’s soul…that they were always meant to be together because they keep each othe ...more

In this latest book following the lives of Damien and Nikki Stark, Damien does a lot of soul searching in the aftermath of previous events, his guilt bringing back disturbing and distressing memories of his past. Still the cutthroat businesses man, hearing everything from his point of view, gaining an insight into his thoughts, gives him an air of vulnerability not seen before. His mental torment and distress at not being able to protect his family bleeds from the pages and is almost too much to ...more

Can we ever get enough of Damien and Nikki? NEVER!!! The ultimate couple - with unwavering love and trust, an unending need for each other in mind, body, and soul. There is nothing Nickki wouldn't do for Damien, and nothing in this world, he wouldn't do for her.

Also, for clarification, this is not my first time reading the lovely J. Kenner books. She happens to be one fo my "very firsts" read from (many years ago). To this day I LOVE her books and writing, not to mention the fact that she is a kind person.

Now reading DAMIEN without reading Book 1 - 5 which i would recommend. It is an AMAZING series!

Now, this book is from Damien's perspective and his head. I didn't know how much I needed this, haha

This story basically picks up from where "Lost With Me" left off, but now everything is coming from Damien's POV. Even though Anne is now home safe and sound, Damien feels as if he has failed his family because with all he has, he wasn't able to protect them. I realize Damien is broken, but it would have been nice to have been in his mindset hanging out with friends and seeing a lighter side of him. Damien came off as very whiny, to me, in this book, and while I don't expect him to be perfect, i ...more

I have read all of the books from the Stark series and all the spin off series from the Stark series. This is the first book that we get to read what is happening from Damien's point of view. The story picks up where Lost with Me ends. Damien is questioning himself about how he thinks he has failed his family - Nikki, Lara, and Anne - after the events in Lost with Me. It takes Nikki to remind him that he didn't fail but has always put his family first and tries his best to protect them from harm ...more

For an obsessed fan of Damien and Nikki Stark this book is literally a dream come true!! I knew the minute I heard Ms. Kenner was writing a book with this title that we were going to get so much background on Damien that we’ve never received before… and I was right!!!

I was giddy with excitement when I started this book and we learn what Damien was thinking when these two first met. I knew they were drawn together like a moth and a flame but holy moly

AAAAH! Getting Damien's point of view for this installment of his and Nikki's story was crucial. I always wanted a way to see what he was thinking and Kenner truly came through with that. We pick up where the last left off, still trying to figure out why Damien and Nikki's daughter was kidnapped and trying to pick up the pieces from that.

The story of Damien and Nikki is one of my all-time favourite romance reads that no other story has come close to the passion that these two characters share. I absolutely love the Stark series and every time I hear about a new release I am instantly excited to read more of my favourite couple.

Wow, where do I start? Who knew that underneath the arrogant, alpha Damien Stark lay a man who was vulnerable and suffered with insecurity? I for one, did not.

This book is told from Damien’s point of view, occurring after he and Nikki are reunited with their daughter and was certainly an eye opener. Nikki and Damien Stark, you either love them or you don’t. I love them and was pleased to be back amongst this dynamic couple and their family and
