Entice Me is the latest addition to the Stark Ever After series of novellas from bestselling author J. Kenner and continues to love story of Damien Stark and Nikki Fairchild which began with the original trilogy of Stark novels--Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me--and will continue with the upcoming full-length novel Anchor Me. In this seventh in an ongoing series, we find Mrs. Stark trying to find a way to pull a fast one over her husband. Damien's birthday is coming up and Nikki wants nothing more than to throw him a surprise party. Almost all her friends think she's mad to even think she can keep a secret that big from her ever-observant husband, but Nikki is determined. She wants one night away from their often busy lives and the shadows of their past, but can she really pull this off?
This is probably my favorite novella in the collection so far. Nikki and Damian have always been one of my favorite fictional couples, and with all the blackmailing that's been hovering over their heads, Nikki wants them to have a night that's all about celebrating the man she loves. As always, J. Kenner gives readers a hell of a lot of steam, but the sweetness that's patently Stark is there as well. Nikki knows her husband better than anyone else--and vice-versa--and it was really nice reading about her trying to maneuver around him. It was also great catching up with the other couples in the Stark universe, and I'm intrigued about what's going on between Jamie Archer and Ryan Hunter, plus a sneak peek at Anchor Me has me excited for even more Damian and Nikki! Five stars for Entice Me. ♥
