Blog Tour & Giveaway: Ignited by J. Kenner


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?

There is an old saying that goes “you don’t miss a good thing until it’s gone”, and that pretty much sums up how I felt about Ignited written by J. Kenner.  Initially I thought I was never going to get into this story of Cole, one of the notorious Three Knights and Katrina, reformed grifter who has had a crush on him for like forever… I mean a really long time, because I just couldn’t connect with the characters.

If you have read the previous two novels in this series, Wanted and Heated,  you have been introduced to Evan and Tyler, the other two Knights who have found happily ever afters in their own lives. However, there was one last knight, Cole. He is a bad mama-jama with anger management issues who does not do relationships, and Katrina, a poor little love struck former con-artist vying for his attention. Katrina is going all out to get this man’s attention from spending invisible money to impress him at a gala to explicitly telling him she has one less problem if he would just bang her out. However, what she doesn’t know is that Cole sees her even when she is not being so obvious but is afraid that he is not the guy for her. I know you have heard or read this before but he feels that she is just too perfect for him to taint.

So they go on like this for a good portion of the novel and as I was about to lay my reader down and take a break from all of the cat and mouse shenanigans between these two, something happened. There was a shift in the storyline that steamed up the lens of my glasses as I continued to read about the tom-kinkery that commenced and the actual conversations that began to happen between these two were so grown.

I digress. Overall, I did not dislike this read but there were parts in it that I didn’t particularly like either. I mean basically, some of it seemed familiar from other books I had read from this author. However, it wasn’t until I was finished with it that I saw how good it actually was and why I like this author. And that reason is, J. Kenner is definitely a wordsmith when it comes to her writing, so my recommendation to you on this novel, is to jog over and read it.
