Ignited (Most Wanted Series #3) by J. Kenner

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • For fans of Release Me comes a series of three enigmatic and powerful men, and the striking women who can bring them to their knees.
He promised to take me as far as I could go—and I wanted to go to the edge.
My whole life has been a cover, a con, a lie. I was born into the grift, raised on the thrill of playing someone I’m not. As a rule, I never let anyone get too close—until Cole August makes it impossible for me to stay away.
Cole is tough, sexy, and intensely loyal, yet his secrets are dark and his scars run deep. Not many women can handle his past, or the truth behind his fierce demands. But something about him beckons me—and our desire is a game I must play.
I know he’s dangerous, that even his touch is trouble, but what is passion without a little risk?

BONUS: This edition includes excerpts from J. Kenner's Say My Name and Release Me.
Ignited is intended for mature audiences.

Praise for Ignited
Ignited delivers both scorching hot scenes along with the evolution and unpeeling of emotional barriers built by past dark secrets. Moreover, the characters are complex, the passion is intense and the ultimate message that love can heal all is inspiring.”The Romance Reviews (five stars)
“[J.] Kenner’s Most Wanted series is about people who walk a thin line between criminal activity and superstar success, between passionate connections and dangerous desires, between darkness and light. These books succeed because Kenner is willing to walk that line right along with her characters—to probe the darkness that frightens them, to explore the passion that ignites them and to bring readers inside the relationships that set them free. This book is no different. Brutally honest, searing, kinky and seductive, Ignited is a book fans will adore and new readers will find enjoyable as well.”RT Book Reviews
“Thought-provoking and dramatic . . . Kenner writes with passion, beauty and a traumatic take on romance and love.”—The Reading Cafe
Ignited is every bit as hot and combustible as it sounds. . . . Kenner definitely knows how to write steamy love scenes and how to push the pain/pleasure envelope with her characters.”—Harlequin Junkie
“Fantastic. From scorching heat to raw emotion and then to a twisted situation with some pretty unsavory characters, this book really had it all. . . . If you love heat, intensity and a wealth of emotions, Ignited is a book for you! Thank you, Julie, for a phenomenal story and a great addition to the Most Wanted series.”—Read-Love-Blog
“Ignited is one word that truly describes the passion and connection of Cole August and Katrina Laron. . . . Ignited by lust, passion, love, and chemistry, they found out they complemented each other emotionally and physically.”—Four Chicks Flipping Pages
“Once again Kenner has written a book that reaches into your soul, pulls out all your emotions and leaves you with a smile.”—The Book Reading Gals

I bought this based upon the review, but it was wrong. This book is mediocre at best. Save your money for the Fifty Shades movie! I ended up skimming whole chapters to get to quality scenes. In one word," Boring".

Even though this is part of a series I feel that it could be read as a stand alone. It wasnt my favorite of Kenner's but with all her other work's that I have enjoyed it wont stop me from Jonesing for more of her reads! I would have liked a little more story with these characters but then again maybe I'm just being Kenner greedy. ;)

I enjoyed Wanted w/Evan Black I reveled in Heated w/Tyler Sharp I was consumed by Ignited w/Cole August These men set the pages afire and the soul a yearning to be touch or just caressed by their self-assuredness. None evoked this more for me then Cole August. The really bad, bad boy that had a life that was not what one would grow up and look back on with the fondest of memories.  Katrina is most certainly ignited by the bad boy behind the man she knows as Cole August, but he is ignited by the perceived image of her. Is what he sees and put on canvas really what Katrina is? This ride to bliss between two people that have past lives that have most certainly impacted their lives today is one you will not forget anytime soon. The ride is filled with pain, secrets, desires, truths, heat, addictions, danger, deceptions, and more. Lite the fuse with ignited and set the cushions on fire with the read you will not forget. Kenner delivered the good and some.  Thanks, NetGalley. This is my honest review of this book as I see it.

If this hadn’t been my sixth J. Kenner book, I’d probably be loving life a little more than I am right now. What started out as a fun fantasy has turned crazy. Sure, I’ll freely admit I have a problem. When I discovered erotica about the time people were talking up Fifty Shades of Grey, I became more than a little curious. So I dipped my hand in Release Me, and the next thing I knew I had a pair of handcuffs slapped around my wrist. And girl was I hooked. I moved on to Fifty Shades and discovered the writing may not be so hot, but the sex scenes certainly were, and Anastasia Steele may be a twenty-one year old virgin, but she sure as heck didn’t act like any virgin I’d ever met. And then I started actively seeking this crap out, and I discovered (rather happily) that there was plenty of erotica to be had. And then I got a little carried away…What J. Kenner does rather well is add a layer of depth to her book smut, and she proves she can turn a phrase about as well as her heroines drop their pink underwear. I mean, this might literally heat you up faster than an oil tanker in Alaska. If you want to cozy up next to a fire and be filled with desire and have characters who might be more than just a teenage fantasy, honey have I got an author for you. Men, do yourselves a favor and grab an armful of erotica and run to the nearest available cash register. Trust me, you won’t regret it. So what went wrong? The life of a con just filled me with all sorts of wrong, and my fantasy bubble was burst. It exploded, and then shattered around me, even as I found myself continuing to turn the pages. Cole and Cat didn’t hit me like that, and I found myself more than a tad disappointed. So one might say, you could blame it on my own expectations. Because I was looking for a peak (a wonderful send-off if you will), and I was left with a valley instead. But what I will say before I go is that I rather enjoyed the way this trilogy focused on a trio of heroes and heroines, instead of ruining a perfectly adequate tale by spreading it over three novels (Fifty Shades I’m talking to you). But then J. Kenner has plenty of talent, along with a wicked imagination. And she’d probably make one heck of a librarian. I received this book for free through NetGalley.

Ignited by J. Kenner is the third in the Most Wanted series and I think it is the best one yet. The book reads a lot better and there is a perfect blend of heat and intrigue. This book focuses on Cole -the most dangerous of the three “Knights”, and Kat- a seemingly sweet charismatic young woman with one major agenda: to sleep with Cole. Unfortunately for these two, they both have very colored pasts which may be too much to overcome. As with all of the other books there wasn’t the formulaic “he loves me he loves me not" that is found in so many romance novels. I really enjoyed this book and I don’t know if this is the last of the three “Knights”, but the author has definitely saved the best for last. *******I received an ARC free for an honest review*************

The basic story was okay but was not the best in the series. Cole's personality is a bit volatile and violent. Of course Kat is very accepting of being knocked around. Not the best by Ms. Kenner.

5 Fired up Stars This is Kenner's third book in the Most Wanted series. Cole and Kat get their turn at finding love. This book, though part of a series could be enjoyed as a stand alone, but is likely best read in order. Both Cole and Kat have issues from their past and Kat's past in particular comes back to give the new couple trouble. We learn the Cole not only likes but due to his past feels the need for the kink. He needs pain, whether to give or receive. Kat, sexually frustrated from a past she can't forget, finds the release she has craved through Cole. Their passion is off the charts hot. Kenner does such an amazing job drawing you in to the intimacy Cole and Kat share. Their encounters are unforgettable and leave you wanting for more. What I loved is that Kenner could get to this level and still have an actual storyline. Often books this hot seem to fill the pages only with sex and their is little substance, that is not the case with this book.  For fans of the series, all of your favorite couples come back, including Damien and Nikki from the Stark series. So with a sexy alpha male who opens himself to love, a strong heroine, and scenes that definitely ignite passion, there is nothing missing from this story!! Thanks to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Oh my heavens! Things just got a LOT more steamy in the Most Wanted series. I really hate to say this since Evan Black still had a hold of my heart when I started this book, but I think Cole might have stole it. With his dirty talking ways and his tortured soul he about did me in. Then there's Kat, an utterly terrific heroine. She could not have been more perfect for Cole. She pushed when he needed it, and submitted when he demanded. Together they were a perfectly in sync.  Kat's on her way to making an honest woman of herself. She's leaving the past where it should be a moving forward. Two things stand in her way - her father is in need of help, and her burning passion for a man that still lives flirt with the law. Yet, Cole is the only one she can turn to help her with her father. She wants in his bed, and his help. But he's only willing to give one, until she worms her way into his arms without permission. And trust me, she gets her punishment for that, and it's so delicious, and achingly seductive that she's now addicted. Addicted to Cole's way of life, his passion, his love. She wants it all. But Cole thinks he'll ruin her. He may be the dominant in the bedroom, but who'll control where they go from here? And when their perfect plan is ruined and threats are lodged will Kat keep her hold on Cole or will he run to keep her safe? I can't say how much I love this book. It's truly the cherry on top of the cake for this series. Cole was the epitome of what I was expecting and Kat was his equal. A thrilling, erotic novel with everything you could hope for. Some of the hottest sex scenes I've read in a while. And let's not forget the emotions. That's what I always judge a book on the hardest. Could I feel everything the characters felt? Abso-freaking-lutely! I swear Ms. Kenner caused me to choke up a few times. Whether it was from laughter or tears, I won't say, but this book got to me. There were parts of hilarity, countered my times of distraught. And what you wind up with are two very strong individuals, who for all intents and purposes should be rolled up in a ball wondering why life sucks, yet they simply find solace in each other. Something the Cole craves and needs, is what Kat has been missing. Perfect puzzle pieces. Ignited is one of my highly recommended books for the year!  Happy Reading! *ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

First off-this is definitely not a book for the under 18 readers! Enough said. I like this series. I like that it blends in with another of her series. I like the people in these series. Cole is "damaged" goods in his own mind. He is attracted to Kat. He tries to keep her away as he thinks he will "damage" her. There are a lot of spoilers in this book like dealing with Kat's Dad, blackmail and whether he will let her get close to him. This is a real deep BDSM story. If you don't like rough sex play just pass on this book and series. I have this book for an honest review for NetGalley.

We have already read about Evan and Tyler, now we're going to focus on Cole. Evan has Angelina, Tyler has Sloane, and now Kat has set her eyes on Cole. Kat has told Sloane that Cole is an itch that she needs to scratch, but the more she gets to know him, the more she is falling for him. Kat has a criminal past and Cole had some trouble when he was younger, that is how he became friends with Evan and Tyler. This series included our favorite couple from J. Kenner, Damien and Nikki Stark. Wanted was the first book, Heated the second, and then Ignited. I personally thought Ignited was the best, so if you haven't read any of this series, then you start now. You can read them as stand alone books but I suggest you read the whole series and in order. Julie, you did a great job with this series, I really enjoyed it. Thank you for doing what you do.
