On My Knees by: J. Kenner

Jackson Steele and Sylvia Brooks continue to thrill in the second novel of a scintillating, emotionally charged new trilogy that returns to the world of J. Kenner's beloved Stark novels: Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me.

I never thought I'd lose control, but his desire took me right to the edge.

Powerful, ambitious, and devastatingly sexy, Jackson Steele was unlike any other man I'd ever known. He went after what he wanted with his whole mind, body, and soul—and I was the woman in his sights. One touch and I surrendered, one night together and I was undone.

Jackson and I had secrets, dark pieces of our pasts that threatened to swallow us both. We couldn't outrun our demons, or the people trying to tear us apart. But in our passion we found salvation, and in each other's arms we found release.

I was scared to trust Jackson fully, to finally let go. Yet no matter the dangers that lay ahead, I knew I was his—and now that we've laid claim, there's no more holding back.

On My Knees is intended for mature audiences.

This was good!!! On My Knees by J. Kenner picked right back up where book one, Say My Name ended. Jackson Steele revealed his familial ties to Damien Stark and the reaction was all of what could have been expected, but slightly quieter on little brother’s part. However, waves were made and emotions were raw as Jackson was just a bag of confessions. From the truth about him not wanting a movie being made about a disturbing excerpt of his life to his secret underground life of street fighting, On My Knees gave you a little of everything that was just everything.

If Sylvia had not grown up before this installment, she threw on a pair of her big girl panties her, by finally having to face her fears that was turning in to a real life living nightmare. She was now being confronted by her past a in ways she was not prepared to handle and once she realized Jackson was there to support her, she was all but ready to face it head on. But that was all before the proverbial wool was pulled over her head and she was forced to act before she was ready. Oh, and did I mention, there is something strange happening in the neighborhood as it relates to the pride and joy of her career,  the Santa Cortez resort.

I digress. Per usual, this book is nicely written and the supporting characters are as engaged, informative, and entertaining as ever. And that ending though…? Now that was an ending that has me anxiously awaiting the next installment. I can’t hardly wait to see what will happen next.

Overall, I REALLY liked this novel and would give this read 4.5 star rating. Why not a 5-star rating? Because, as much as I love a cliffhanger, the flow of the story was just so good up until that point that I was just in utter disbelief that it just ended. Leaving me dangling once again from a random cliff in the mystical land of Offa-doo. With all of that being said,  I have to still recommend that that you run and read On My Knees by J. Kenner.
