Overview

For fans of Release Me comes an emotionally intense eBook novella from J. Kenner. Following fan favorites Damien Stark and his wife, Nikki Fairchild, Play My Game is the story of their first Valentine’s Day as newlyweds, and offers an alluring glimpse of Jackson Steele, the alpha male featured in Kenner’s Say My Name.
 
I never imagined that anything could top our honeymoon, but life as Mrs. Damien Stark is sweeter than any fantasy. We are forever bound by our love and our desire. His touch is my greatest treasure—and is purely mine alone.
 
Yet no matter where we go, the ghosts of our pasts follow. We can’t escape our secrets, or the people who desperately want to bring us down. Even on Valentine’s Day, neither of us is safe.
 
I’ll do whatever it takes to protect Damien, to fulfill his every need. His kiss is my calling, his passion my truest bliss. The dangers we face, we now face together—and nothing can make me run.
 
Play My Game is intended for mature audiences.

I loved this book. Damien and Nikki are one of my all time favorite book couples. This is a fun novella set around Valentines Day. It has some really steamy and sexy moments. Lots of excitement and even a little blackmail. Every thing I love about the Stark Series. J.Kenner has written another Hit. I love seeing the funny and sweet side to Damien, you definitely feel the love he has for Nikki.  I received an arc copy from the author in exchange for my honest review

4.25 stars PLAY MY GAME is the latest novella in J. Kenner’s contemporary, adult Stark Ever After erotic romance series focusing on billionaire Damien Stark and the love of his life Nikki Fairchild-Stark. Their continuing story finds our couple about to celebrate their first Valentine’s Day together but someone is playing a dangerous game with the people they love. The focus of the storyline is two fold: Damien Stark sets up a scavenger hunt in preparation for a Valentine’s celebration with his wife. While Nikki begins to uncover the clues another more deadly game is unfolding-intimate images and threatening blackmail letters begin appearing in emails of friends, family and former lovers. Someone is out to destroy Damien Stark by attacking the people closest to his heart. We will be introduced to the infamous architect Jackson Steele- a man whose own story will be told in J. Kenner’s upcoming Stark International Trilogy but a man who refuses to give in to Damien Stark’s wishes and demands. When Damien approaches Jackson with a business offer, Jackson declines with reasons he keeps to himself. PLAY MY GAME is a romantic, intriguing and enticing addition to J. Kenner’s Stark series of novels and spinoffs. What began with a portrait and a million dollar offer in RELEASE ME book 1 has now blossomed into an erotic romance series where anyone with a close connection to our couple finds themselves with a story of their own. One can only hope that we all find a Damien Stark to call our own.

4 stars Damien and Nikki are back from their honeymoon or are they?  They continue to show us that no matter where the two of them are, they are truly  in love with each other.  But as they adjust to life as husband and wife, someone wants to cause trouble between them and for the people that Damien love. He will do everything in his power to protect Nikki and the people close to him; but at what cost?  Will Nikki be ok with what Damien plans to do with protecting her and them?  Or will she be completely against it?  Among all of this craziness, Damien has a special Valentine planned for Nikki if only she is able to put all the pieces together to find her prize.  I loved how Damien was so creative and Nikki also had something in the works to wow Damien, the man that has everything. If you have not read this series, you seriously need to start from the beginning.  I have no doubt you will fall in love with  Damien and Nikki.  Author J. Kenner is an amazing writer and will have you looking for your own Damien Stark.

She has been on my "go-to" ever since the first Stark book- my only gripe is it was too short. Glad the next one is about Sylvia. Hot read :-)

Three weeks of honeymoon bliss and now it is time for Nikki and Damien to return to the real world. Talk about getting away from it all! These two epitomize the ultimate love affair with all the trimmings. Damien is always vulnerable to those who will try to hurt the ones he loves. In this new story, we have a blackmailer who is relentlessly trying him either through offending Nikki or her friend Jamie. Now Damien will have to make decisions that could have long range affects to all their lives. By the way, this is Nikki's and Damien's first Valentine's Day. You have to read this novella to find out how creative he gets with his present. It is endearing and amusing how creative these two lovers get to keep their relationship hopping HOT! Of course, I love anything with Damien in it...but this one is a little jewel!

I just love how much Damien loves and needs Nikki, he is always coming up with little games for Nikki and she loves them. Once again we get to see that they are great together and they overcome anything. In this book, we get to hear more about Jamie, Nikki's best friend and Ryan, head of Damien' s security team.  This is their first Valentine's day and they do it up Stark style, so much romance for these two people. Well done Julie, please keep writing about Damien and Nikki Stark. I recommend you read this series of you are into romance books..

This was a great way to catch up with Nikki and Damien and see how they are adjusting after getting married! I really enjoyed the fun Valentine's game Damien had Nikki play and of course he pulled out all the stops! Also really enjoyed the preview for the next book which I am very excited to read!! Make sure you have read the other books in the series before you dive into this one!
