Happy to be a part of the J. Kenner arc group. The only reason I was disappointed by this novella because it was so so short. Three chapters of J. Kenner writing is not enough. I'm dying to know what happens to Denny. Poor Denny has been waiting for two years to see or hear if her husband is dead.

Short and sweet or not so sweet but sexy. Denise has been missing her husband who is undercover, deep under cover and has been for years. Today, Valentine's Day is their anniversary and her friends, Nikki and Jamie, have treated her to the Penthouse Suite and a massage. Just what she needs, to relax and regroup. However, when a woman shows up to "prepare" her she tells her she will be blindfolded. Okay, she can do that but when "The Master" shows those hands and that voice turns out to be someon ...more

Romantic and bittersweet

Denise Marshall hasn’t seen her husband, Mason, in years. His mission has taken him deep cover and any contact would jeopardize his mission or Denise’s safety. We met Denise in Quincy and Eliza’s story in Shattered In You where both Denise and Quincy are partners who work for Stark Security.

On Valentine’s Day, Denise is missing her husband so much more. But her close friends rally for her and soon she has a mystery lover who takes over her lonely evening. Blindfolded for

I can't wait for the book to read more about Denise and if she will find her husband and to find out who the person is that showed up to give her the "master" massage. Her husband is a spy and has been undercover for over 2 years. Denise hasn't heard from him and is worry about him. I hope we find out more about Denise, her husband, and who that person was that gave her a massage that made her feel so, so good! I love Ms. Kenner's Stark world and all the different characters that we get to meet ...more

Blindfold Massage

If you have reluctantly, not seen your husband for two years and then get to be secretly massaged by him on Valentines Day it might drive you crazy. Well, this short prequel story charts this exact scenario for Denise. Except, being blindfolded she can't verify whether the person actually touching her and massaging her, is her Mason.

This short story literally wets the readers appetite and stimulates the senses for the next Stark Security book 'Broken with you'. As a J. Kenner f

Shadows of You A Stark Security Short Story J. KENNER

When I say this is a short story~I mean short...and on these few pages it is packed with heartache, hope, passion, mystery and friendship. What an incredible short read. I don’t know how J.Kenner pulled off all the emotions, twist and turns with such few words.


“I want to ask him if this fantasy was real. If he is real….
But I don’t...maybe, just maybe, I’m afraid of the answer.”

Perfect sexy interlude for Denise and Mason while Mason is on a deep cover op and they’ve been separated for a few years. Denise gets the best Valentine’s surprise orchestrated by her friends that delivers just what the doctor ordered for Denise. What a fabulous couple.

Too short and you need to buy more for more story line

Exciting but disappointing. The story was way too short and you have to buy the next short stories to find more between the two. No thanks.

Quick read with a bit steamy. Due to the shortness of the story, a lot of what makes a story truly hot and steamy had to be left out. But it's a good set-up for the series/book #2. Looking forward to more of Denise and Mason, or The Master.

I really liked this afternoon quickie! It took a moment to buy into all the billionaire-esque BS, but once I reminded myself it's a romance and not a thriller, I got right into it and really enjoyed it. Kenner has a writing style that gets the point across with a minimum of words and it works.

This novella/prequel was a great way to see into the mind of Denny for a moment. To know what she is thinking and how much she truly misses her husband. I can not wait to read Broken with you and get the full story and see where Kenner takes these amazing stories!
Nicki - The Overflowing Bookcase
If this does not get you ready for the actual book nothing will. Once again J. Kenner hooks the reader in and does not let go. This time it is with a shot of mystery when Denise is set up for a night of spa treatments only to have her desires met. I cannot wait for the full book!!!

Review: Shadows of You

This pre-quel has left me hurting for Denise. After everything she has been through not knowing where Mason is it is bittersweet to find out he is alive and back but no memories of her. And she's pregnant!! Can't wait to start Broken with you.

This was a quick and steamy preview into Denise's story. Can't wait to read Broken with you, because if this quick read was this steamy then I know we are in for a hot treat with the full book.

Part of Stark Security a prequel to Broken with You. Not an official HEA, but that’s okay. Sexy, erotic, a little mysterious. Lots of questions to be answered in Broken with You.

Get to know a little about Denise in this 3 ch. Prequel. Her full story is Broken with you. Its short and "sweet".

Satisfying Quicky

Short, fast & tantalizing read that brings Denny & Mason to life. Nice racy intro before their full length book Broken With You.

"The man -The Master - gave me back hope, along with a fresh taste of joy."

What a sexy short story!! A perfect teaser to Broken with You, and the rest of Denise & Mason's love story!
Even in this novella, you can feel Denny's pain and heartbreak over missing Mason. At the same time, you can feel Mason's desire for her, knowing he can't stay. Duty calls. No names were needed between them - all they needed was a touch to know the truth.

Loved it!! I can't wait for Broken with You!!
