JK has been praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a “flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations” and by RT Bookclub for having “cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them.” A five time finalist for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA award, JK took home the first RITA trophy awarded in the category of erotic romance in 2014 for her novel, Claim Me (book 2 of her Stark Trilogy).

Overall and surprising enough an enjoyable read. See spoiler for why it shouldn’t have been.
I had a lot of fun with this book. It is upbeat with some angst but very entertaining.
Reece, Brent & Jenna have been best friends since childhood. Only 8 months ago things changed. Reece sees her for what she is. A beautiful woman. Not quite willing to take that step he lets it drop and she leaves the next day for LA.
Jenna has come back to Austin it didn’t quite work out in LA. She comes home to her family. And to the attraction that she left behind for one of her best friends. They both notice that it has become awkward and that something has changed but they need time to come to terms with it. Once they do they are all in. A romance from friends to lovers. There is inner monologue of push and pull because the dynamic of their relationship has changed or will change which was somewhat repetitive.
Reece is a bit of an arse but he has good character development throughout the book. Although he is an arse I still really liked him. God knows why if I’m being honest.
Jenna is a strong and sassy heroine and she stands up for what she wants but she doesn’t give Reece a chance an unfair ultimatium IMO.
With all books there is the buildup of the romance and then a spanner is thrown in the works. This spanner is slightly predictable but the grand gesture isn’t too bad.
The setup of saving The Fix on sixth street which is their local hangout is interesting and a lot can be done with the series. I like the author’s writing style it flows well and is easy to read. I don’t know if I’d read any of the other series by this author.
I’ve signed up for all twelve books ambitious, right? So, fingers crossed peeps. In a way I’m glad that I have because the secondary characters here are amazing and I’m sure that they are going to get their books.
