“Kenner may very well have cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them.”
—RT Book Reviews
Wrecked With You, an all-new steamy and swoon-worthy standalone romance in the Stark Security Series by New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner is available now!
He never wanted a partner. And then she came along.
After more than a decade chasing shadows, Antonio Santos finally has a lead on the hiding place of The Serpent, the elusive villain who kidnapped him as a child and murdered his mother and uncle. But in order for Tony to get close, he’ll need access to an exclusive private island—where he can only enter with a woman on his arm.
Antonio goes to Stark Security to call in a debt … then walks out with Emma Tucker on his arm. A loner, Antonio isn’t interested in having a partner. He just needs a female. But the striking redhead’s skills soon impress him. More than that, her lush body and beguiling self-assurance tease his senses in unanticipated ways.
A longtime operative with deadly skills, Emma resents being arm candy for someone else’s agenda. But the more she works with Antonio, the more she admires his razor sharp intelligence and formidable prowess. And when the island’s games push them over a sensual cliff, she can’t deny his talents in the bedroom, too.
As passion rises on this island playground full of lust and danger, they both fight the growing attraction between them. But with danger racing toward them from both on and off the island, they soon realize that more than their hearts are at stake. Because unless they can trust and rely on each other, they also risk losing their lives.

PrologueThe world is a fucked up place. That was probably the first lesson I learned in life. A hard-taught lesson when he’d yell at me or slap me. Or worse. He was supposed to love us. To protect us. But “supposed to” is only the truth in a fairy tale world. We lived in the real world, my sister and me. And when it got to be too much—when there was nothing and no one we could turn to except each other—that’s when we ran. I’ve done things I’m ashamed of. Things I had to in order to survive. To keep us safe. And I learned a long time ago not to trust anyone but myself and my sister. Because the people who are supposed to protect you will fail you. And the people who are supposed to love you can just as easily be monsters. But lately, things have started to shift. My world is opening, and people are surprising me. I’m letting down my guard; I’m letting people in. It’s a mistake, and I know it. Because now he’s come into my life. And though I know I need to keep my distance—though I know damn well that he’s going to hurt my heart—I can’t help but slide down that hill toward him, terrified all the while that he won’t be strong enough to catch me. And even more scared that he will.

5 STAR Review
I love J. Kenner! I love all things Stark. I love getting to know our security friends. Antonio is looking for the person who killed his family. Having a lead, he calls in a favor from Stark Security. He didn’t expect the beautiful Emma. Emma is everything you could want in arm candy. She’s beautiful, intelligent, and deadly. I love how tough she is. I love her story and how it makes her who she is. Antonio has a past. One that has left him broken and looking for revenge. I don’t think he banked on Emma being exactly what he needed.
These two have amazing chemistry. As they are forced to get closer for the mission, they get closer personally. There should be a time limit on them being together but as time passes these two realize that will never happen. These two are meant to be together.
I love this story. I love seeing the Stark Security crew. I love my Damien. This book was perfect. I can’t want to see what J. Kenner has next for us.
