The DNF Journals: On My Knees by J. Kenner

Series: Stark International Trilogy #2
Release Date: June 23, 2015

Genre: Erotica
Source: Copy Provided for Honest Review

Jackson Steele and Sylvia Brooks continue to thrill in the second novel of a scintillating, emotionally charged new trilogy that returns to the world of J. Kenner’s beloved Stark novels: Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me.

I never thought I’d lose control, but his desire took me right to the edge. 

Powerful, ambitious, and devastatingly sexy, Jackson Steele was unlike any other man I’d ever known. He went after what he wanted with his whole mind, body, and soul—and I was the woman in his sights. One touch and I surrendered, one night together and I was undone. 

Jackson and I had secrets, dark pieces of our pasts that threatened to swallow us both. We couldn’t outrun our demons, or the people trying to tear us apart. But in our passion we found salvation, and in each other’s arms we found release. 

I was scared to trust Jackson fully, to finally let go. Yet no matter the dangers that lay ahead, I knew I was his—and now that we’ve laid claim, there’s no more holding back. 

On My Knees is intended for mature audiences.

DNF'd at 41%.

I did not set On My Knees aside lightly.  I really liked the first book of the series, Say My Name, you can see my review >>here<<.

It's not the core story that made me give up on this book. It was the lack of the core story being addressed.  At 41%, I felt like it had barely been touched on. Instead of getting to the intrigue and the twists, it is just Jackson and Sylvia going at it like rabbits.

I didn't go back and count, but in what was all of about a day in the story, it felt like they had fucked about eight times. I bow to their libidos and stamina.

I get it. This is an erotic romance. It's supposed to have a lot of sex. I'm not naive to that and have enjoyed all of Kenner's previous titles that I've opened. I just wanted to get to the story.
