Claim Me by J Kenner Review

                    Claim Me by J. Kenner
                   Available April 23, 2013

I was lucky to get an ARC of Claim Me from netgalley to read and review.
Claim Me is the second book in this series. The story follows Damien Stark, a powerful, wealthy man who isn’t used to taking no for an answer and Nikki Fairchild, a woman who says yes on her own terms. 

In this second installment, their week long agreement and game has ended. The product is amazing, but when the press gets wind of the terms of their agreement, their lives are suddenly invaded by paparazzi and story of the moment seekers. Then Nikki realizes that Damien is holding something back, and she becomes determined to find out his secret. But what will become of them if she learns the truth? Can she stand by him, or will the truth shatter everything she has come to cherish?

Kenner does not disappoint. The first book in this series was hot hot  hot and I wondered, how can the second be better? Well I assure you it is. The main characters sizzle. Their chemistry is undeniable and the heat they generate jumps off the page. There are parts that I swear made me blush.  Nikki retains her independence and remains a heroine to admire.

I have read most of Kenner’s other books (mostly paranormal) and I have to say that anything she writes is fantastic. She’s smart, funny, sexy and I am looking forward to book 3 in this series.
