  hottest mess available now   9781101967478 (1)

The S.I.N. series continues with the seductive follow-up to the Stark International Novel Dirtiest Secret, from the New York Times bestselling author of “red-hot and angsty” fiction that “keeps readers guessing” (Publishers Weekly, on Under My Skin). No one can know about our love—and hiding only makes it hotter. Dallas Sykes has a reputation. He is known for his parties, his money, and the countless women on his arm. Yet the Dallas I know is a different man—darker, smarter, and unbearably sexy. Just one look from him can leave me breathless; the anticipation of his touch can make me lose control. Inextricably bound by our past, we keep each other’s secrets. And while there are people who have the power to hurt us, it’s the truth that threatens us most of all. Dallas can be mine only behind closed doors, our passion as searing as it is forbidden. Yet nothing in this world has ever felt so desperately, deliciously right. Hottest Mess is intended for mature audiences.

Review - 4 Stars

Hottest Mess is the second book in the S.I.N. Series.  You need to read Dirtiest Secrets first, this is not a standalone.  This picks up right where book one left off.  When Dallas and Jane were fifteen and seventeen they were kidnapped, but by who? Dallas has spent years trying to find those responsible for this.  The jailer and the woman who tortured them are still out there, but he's close to figure things out.

What was great about book two is this is more about Dallas and Janes forbidden relationship and not just the mystery.  Yes that plays a big part of the story, but we feel the push and pull of the characters.
Dallas still needs to keep up his playboy image.  But behind closed doors they allow themselves to feel what is right.

These two together was beautiful, raunchy and explosive.  As Jane continues to pull Dallas in, Dallas continues to keep some secrets.  Jane wants to help Dallas, but he doesn't want to bring her down.  His darkness continues to haunt him.  Can she convince him to let her fully in?  But they both love each other and are willing to do whatever it takes to be together.  But will they be accepted or will they continue struggling?

That cliffhanger...a wow moment!   The plot is well written and I enjoyed the story, especially their moments, but I felt this was a bit slow or lacking.  I wanted more answers and felt like I got more questions.  Yes, some stuff is revealed, but as I said still more questions.  Twists and turns with some exciting moments.  I'm excited too see where J. Kenner is going with this...I want my answers.  4 Messy Stars!

From the New York Times bestselling author of such “racy, sizzling Stark novels” (RT Book Reviews) as Release Me and Say My Name comes the provocative first Stark International Novel—the beginning of the S.I.N. series. It was wrong for us to be together, but it was even harder to be apart. The memory of Dallas Sykes burns inside of me. Everyone knows him as a notorious playboy, a man for whom women and money are no object. But to me, he’s still the one man I desperately crave—yet the one I can never have. Dallas knows me better than anyone else. We bear the same scars, the same darkness in our past. I thought I could move on by staying away, but now that we’re drawn together once more, I can’t fight the force of our attraction or the temptation to make him mine. We’ve tried to maintain control, not letting ourselves give in to desire. And for so long we’ve told ourselves no—but now it’s finally time to say yes. Dirtiest Secret is intended for mature audiences.
