Nikki and Damien Stark, you either love them or you don’t. I happen to love them and was pleased to be back with this dynamic couple and their family and friends. Life has not been kind to either Nikki or Damien but once they met, although things did indeed get worse before they got better, the bond of love and devotion that was forged between them has been amazing to read about. Their journey has had that bond challenged and strained at times but through it all you are in no doubt that these two love each other passionately and forever. This is a steamy read, Damien and Nikki are both frantically busy as ever with work and family; their relationship is just as intense and passionate as in previous books. Of course it wouldn’t be complete without danger and hidden secrets and when threats arise Damien becomes full on Alpha as he does what he does best to protect Nikki and those that he loves. This was a roller coaster of a read at times and when tragedy strikes, my heart just about leapt into my mouth as outside forces threaten their hard fought happiness. Will their relationship withstand this latest blow? Or will it all be too much? One click and find out.

Have you ever read a series that you never want to end well the Stark Trilogy which is now a saga is the one for me I really can’t get enough of Damien and Nikki Stark what started off as a great trilogy is now a brilliant saga. I was so excited to hear we were going get more from this couple and J.Kenner did not disappoint this book was everything I could have wished for and more. Nikki and Damien once again need to pull together and provide a united front as secrets and people from their past rear their ugly heads...is this the book that finally pushes them over the edge, well I guess you are going to have to read the book to find that out. I read this book in one sitting I was up half the night because I needed to know will one of my favourite couples will keep it together when everything nd them is falling apart. I love this couple and I love the characters that surround them for me this is the perfect saga, every character has different strengths, the chemistry is always sizzling and there is always a few twists and turns and talking of twists and turns I believe the next book in this series will be told in Damien’s POV as apposed to Nikki’s how exciting is that little titbit. If you are a fan of the Stark’s you won’t want to miss this one and if you haven’t read them before do yourself a favour and pick up Release Me and join us on the Nikki and Damien bandwagon you won’t regret it. Brilliant addition to a perfect series.

What. A. Ride. Man. Kenner sent us on quite the rollercoaster in this one. It was great to see Damien and Nikki living their life with their daughters, but it also was frustrating that Kenner keeps putting roadblocks between them and happiness (can we just get some sunshine and rainbows for once?!?!?!). I'm just kidding, but seriously, haven't they been through enough? Okay, getting on to the story. Nikki and Damien are never going to have an easy life. Their pasts are far too troubled and there are way too many skeletons to really let them live happily ever after. Just in this book alone, you had at least two different figures with grudges that might have been the cause for this book's trouble. The suspense about who's to blame for what's going on was great. Every time I convinced myself I knew what was going on, Kenner through me in a totally different direction. At times, it did get a little diluted...almost like there were too many options...and I don't know that we ever got true closure on some of them. This book was a little traumatic for me. I had a very hard time once the bad stuff started happening. I knew that Kenner wouldn't do something so terrible that we couldn't come back to this world without struggling, but it's a testament to her writing that I really was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was going to happen. You have the Damien/Nikki heat that you come to know and love, but their sexual relationship almost takes a back seat to the emotional relationship... almost. I loved catching up with all of these Stark world people, even if it was under the worst circumstances ever, but this really seems like a transition novel into Damien's story. You get the feeling that we are building to something big, and I'm equal parts excited and terrified.

I don't think that I will ever get enough of Damien and Nikki, in general, and this book really just solidified that fact even more. We have been through so much with them from the beginning with parental matters, business matters, paparazzi, childhood baggage, you name it it is there..but now..NOW they are met with a whole other set of challenges and matters. Will they make it together or will it be enough to finally tear them apart? Ok, I know you're laughing with me because there is nothing that can rip those two apart, we know that, but what about bending them? Breaking them? Shattering their lives as they know it? Make sure you have enough time to devote to finishing this book because once you start you will not want to put it down!

Ms Kenner has gone and done it again. I love all books Damien and Nikki, I was hooked from the first page to the last. And what Stark book would be without the drama! Well for Damien and Nikki it seems to never end and someone always wants to try and shatter their love for each other. But like any other time they stand strong. I can't wait for more books of Damien and Nikki

When you are on top of the world there are those that want to be like you and others who want to tear you down. Welcome to the world of Damien and Nikki Stark. Ms. Kenner keeps the thrill alive with this latest book giving the readers more of a glimpse into the fabulous life of the Starks but all is not as it seems. The writing flows as if there is a gray cloud shrouding the Stark family and who knows what will transpire. There is a lot to be grateful for with Nikki moving her company into a new facility but at what cost? Damien has told Nikki that he would no longer keep secrets but is that really the truth? If you have not read the Stark series then you want to grab it and begin immediately as this is not a standalone; you will be very glad you did. I volunteered to read an advance copy of this book.

I could read about these two forever! Ms. Kenner does such a great job of taking these two that have so much passion and heat and give them a life after their happily ever after. Not everyone rides into the sunset. Marriage is hard and there are many things that a couple have to go through. I love that we get to experience this with Nikki and Damien. This couple continues to burn up the pages and yet their love is growing more mature and more solid. I love that they have to work at their marriage like everyone else. This book brings together a lot of different players in the Stark universe which was awesome to see them all interact. I could read books in this world for a long time to come, so keep writing them! Love it!

This 5th book in the Stark Saga begins with a glimpse into the happy family life of ex-tennis player turned billionaire businessman, Damien Stark, and his ex-pageant queen wife, Nikki Fairchild, and their 4 year old adopted daughter, Lara, and their 2 year old biological daughter, Anne. The first four books in the series mainly focused on Nikki and Damien's relationship and in this one, we experience their family life. As a result, we're re-introduced to several characters (who have had their own series) like Nikki's best friend, Jamie and her husband Ryan, who not only is the Head of Security for Stark Enterprises, but is also Damien's best friend. I'm always amazed with the way Julie Kenner weaves all the past characters, friend or "foe", seamlessly into the current story to remind us about the complicated lives of our Hero and heroine. As a couple they have faced numerous threats to tear them apart, but this time the threat strikes closer to home. Just as in the previous books, this story is told from Nikki's POV, which is important because she knows Damien the best and readily shares the roller coaster of emotions she sees her husband experience as they try to deal with the very real threat to their family. The author is definitely setting us up for our first opportunity to see inside Damien's mind when his book comes out next.

As usual, returning to Nikki and Damien's world is intense, sensual and emotional. J. Kenner continues to amaze with her top notch writing. Loved this book.
Wendy S Hodges More than 1 year ago
Intense, full of emotions and pain. Suspicion and threats as always surround this couple, their strength is in their love and devotion to each other but secrets always put a strain on any relationship and theirs is no different. With things coming at her from all directions including Damian's secrets Nikki is at times struggling. J Kenner weaves twists and turns into these books until you think there cant possibly be any more and then does it again, I have been hooked on this series from book one including the novellas and spin offs. This book as always just leaves me wanting more from this damaged couple and their friends. Gripping read full of raw and deep emotional thoughts and events, I must admit at times I want to give both these characters a good talking to, do not keep secrets and be careful who you trust. I love them and the two adorable little girls they call their daughters, until the next one.

Another Stark Saga winner What more can this family endure? J Kenner takes us on another emotional and gut-wrenching ride with this installment to Nikki and Damien’s world. Told in Nikki’s POV, it is poignant, intriguing and utterly engrossing as we follow along in what seems like normal day-to-day living. Nikki faces many challenges as a mother, wife, and businesswoman and Damien is there to bolster and support her efforts in whatever she needs to be happy and successful. But life is not that simple. With wealth comes money and power, and those that want a piece of it. Evil lurks around every corner, causing potential harm and malicious intent towards the Starks and their beautiful family. Then the unthinkable happens and your heart will break and take your breath away. What cements this couple each time is the way they come together in the face of adversity. They are compassionate and strong in their convictions. Both show so much devotion and passion it just pours off the pages. I just love Nikki and Damien, they love unconditionally because of who they are and what they’ve both been through to have the life they want for the family. J Kenner easily catches you up on all the characters with just a few sentence reminders in relation to Nikki and Damien. The author does a wonderful job in weaving a well-written and emotionally-packed story. You won’t want to miss this heart-pounding suspense. I received and voluntarily reviewed this book.

Lost with Me by J. Kenner is a new installment in her Stark Saga. Featuring the beloved characters, Damien Stark and Nikki Fairchild Stark, Ms. Kenner has given readers another full-length novel filled with romance, passion, family, and even suspense. Another great installment to a great series, I enjoyed Lost with Me because J. Kenner continues to show readers how Damien and Nikki can be strong when they're together and how much love these two have for each other, their family, and friends. The novel has the couple facing threats, lies and secrets that can bring the couple to their breaking point. Well-written with familiar characters that readers of the Stark Saga will enjoy spending time with again. Overall, Lost with Me by J. Kenner is book not to miss especially for fans of the Starks. I recommend this addition to the story of Nikki and Damian as well as to the Stark World in general. It just keeps getting better. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book I received for free in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.)

“He says nothing, but he holds me close, his arms tight around me, and I melt against him, needing his strength. Right now, though, he feels broken, too, and he clings to me the same way that I cling to him, each of us searching for strength in the other. And I’m afraid, so terribly afraid, that there’s not enough between us.” Damien & Nikki Stark have always been a power couple, stronger together than they ever were apart. Each fighting demons from their past, but drawing strength from the love & passion they have together. But when unknown enemies threaten their family & his secrets drive a wedge between them, is their seemingly unbreakable connection enough to keep the demons at bay? Never has the indestructible Damien Stark seemed more heartbreakingly vulnerable than when he thinks he may have failed his wife & family. I’m really looking forward to the next book “Damien”, told from his point of view.

Lost With Me is more than a 5 star review. I wish I could give it many more golden stars! As a huge Stark fan, I have to applaud J. Kenner. She brings life to Damien and Nikki and the rest of the Stark clan. I got giddy knowing we were getting more of their world and see how they never stop fighting for each other. Lost With Me is takes you to the gritty side of Nikki and Damien's life. They still hold little bit of pieces back. In this story Nikki broke me and I could feel her pain. I could also feel Damien's struggle. Just so much goes on but these two always fight back. There are a lot of good friends that come back together. I love reading about Evelyn, Blaine, Dallas, Jane, Ryan, Jamie, and so much more. But my favorite are Damien's and Nikki's children. Lost With Me is not your normal Stark books. I felt that we get a darker side of the Stark world. You get so caught up with the book you lose sight of reality and the book world. Watch out Stark fans, J. Kenner will take you on a new emotional ride. You will not be able to help yourself by falling more in love with Nikki and Damien as they weather the storm in their next chapter. Lost With Me is a definite MUST READ! Be prepared for the book hangover after.

Nikki and Damien Stark almost live a fairy tale life until every parent's worst nightmare happens. This story takes you on a roller coaster ride....... mystery, suspense, drama, and extreme emotional ups and downs. Damien just makes you swoon in how devoted he is to his wife and children and will do anything for them. Nikki and Damien are absolutely combustible together and burn up the pages! Love these two and want more!

Oh my Stark Goodness! This was way beyond great! There were so many twists and turns it was like riding a roller coaster. We are treated to home and family time with Damien and Nikki and their two girls with Nikki getting ready to go back to work outside the home compound. All this with danger lurking and finally striking. Their love is what makes them strong but will it be strong enough to survive this. Even if you haven't read the rest of the Stark novels and novellas you should be able to read this one without difficulty but this entire series it so remarkable I recommend starting with the first one and binging your way through :) **Received this ARC for review**

Nikki and Damien are back with a full length novel. They are the couple who has it all; friends, family, love, money, but it’s never enough to keep the dark away. There is a lot happening in this book; secrets, lies, accusations, main characters turning on secondary characters, old friends (and enemies) from previous books making appearances (and mentions). If you thought previous books took our favorite couple to the breaking point, well this one takes it even further and sets the tone for the next book, Damien. The one thing lacking compared to the previous novels was the intimate moments and the foreplay. The sexy times were minimal and that pain Nikki needs seem to fall to the wayside, hence a four instead of five star review.

The Starks are back for a full length novel. “Lost with Me” is full of drama. Not as many steamy scenes in this one as other full lengths, but what readers get is full on yummy, sexy goodness. This follow up includes many of our Stark world side characters, such as Evelyn, Blaine, Riley, Dallas, Quincy, & Noah. This is a must read for Stark fans! This storyline sets up for “Damien” to be one helluva ride!

I absolutely loved Damien and Nikki! The story was filled with drama and sexy time and left me with a satisfied smile. Julie pulled me in with her writing style and held me captive as all the players made some kind of appearance. Loved it.

4.5 stars--LOST WITH ME is the fifth instalment in J. Kenner’s contemporary, adult STARK Ever After SAGA erotic, romance series focusing on Damien Stark, and his wife Nikki Fairchild-Stark. LOST WITH ME can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous instalments is revealed where necessary but I recommend reading the series in order for back story and cohesion. Several characters from the Stark Series spin-offs cross over into the current story line. Told from first person point of view (Nikki) LOST WITH ME continues to focus on billionaire businessman Damien Stark, and his wife, app developer Nikki Fairchild-Stark. All the money in the world doesn’t buy the safety and security Damien hopes to afford his young family. Now the father of two daughters, ages four and two, Damien’s priority is the protection of his wife and children but all does not go according to plans as Nikki becomes the target of jealousy, and their children’s safety is threatened in the process. Sins from the past continue to haunt our leading couple, intimidation and potential disaster push Nikki to revert to damaging ways. Everyone is suspect; familiar faces and names are called into question; friendships are jeopardized in the process. The relationship between Nikki and Damien is highly sexual including our couple’s need to reclaim what was in the face of potential loss and disaster. I dislike the use of a certain four-letter word I find inappropriate in any romance story line-a word used only once-more for shock value than anything else. The numerous secondary and supporting characters are familiar, colourful and entertaining. Nikki’s best friend Jamie is a force to be reckoned; new faces come into question when the Stark’s face a potential disaster and the potential loss of someone close. LOST WITH ME is a heartbreaking and emotional story line. The characters are energetic; the romance is passionate and intense; the premise is spirited and lively. LOST WITH ME is a revealing story line as Damien and Nikki face the challenges that have become their life.

I love spending time with Nikki and Damien. They have a combustible, sexy relationship and now parenthood lets me see the softer side to Damien. Getting to experience how they navigate work and family responsibilities while still keeping their passion alive is fabulous. Their girls, Lara and Anne are wonderful and a great balance for this couple. Of course, being who they are with a spotlight on them from their success puts other challenges in their life. We get to experience every high and every low as they navigate married life and parenthood. I love the honesty of their emotions and the daily struggles they both face.

Well, I for one simply can’t get enough of Damien and Nikki Stark!! They are just so sexy and their love is so huge. I love the way they are with their little girls but how they still haven’t lost their edgy sex life. This adventure in the lives of one of my fave book couples, is probably one of the most difficult yet for them to endure. It tests them for sure. They go through something no parent should ever have to go through. Is there anything their love and their unbreakable bond can’t get them through? I don’t think so! I am so looking forward to “Damien”, especially after that small teaser at the end. Another amazing Stark story !!

I have one word for this book: WOW!!! Damien and Nikki are back and facing their toughest challenge yet! One that just might be too tough for them to conquer. This story will have you on an emotional roller coaster and clinging to hold on and not want to let go. Once I started reading, I could not put it down. Another AMAZING Stark saga and a MUST read!
