Hottest Mess J. Kenner Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

The S.I.N. series continues with the seductive follow-up to the Stark International Novel Dirtiest Secret, from the New York Times bestselling author of “red-hot and angsty” fiction that “keeps readers guessing” (Publishers Weekly, on Under My Skin).

No one can know about our love—and hiding only makes it hotter.
 
Dallas Sykes has a reputation. He is known for his parties, his money, and the countless women on his arm. Yet the Dallas I know is a different man—darker, smarter, and unbearably sexy. Just one look from him can leave me breathless; the anticipation of his touch can make me lose control.
 
Inextricably bound by our past, we keep each other’s secrets. And while there are people who have the power to hurt us, it’s the truth that threatens us most of all.
 
Dallas can be mine only behind closed doors, our passion as searing as it is forbidden. Yet nothing in this world has ever felt so desperately, deliciously right.

    Fantastic page turning plot with breathtakingly hot sexual scenes. This is the second part of this series and J. Kenner continues this story that is graphic and intense yet heartfelt and all consuming. Every scene, every word uttered every piece of the puzzle that I wanted to get answers to played with my emotion. I truly felt the connection that Dallas and Jane shared. But will their connection survive? Can't wait for the third part of this story. Highly recommended! Loved it.

    I just love this book.i can't get enough of Dallas and Jane. They are strong together and apart they struggle. I also, love the way how Jane proves that she can handle her self when it comes to Dallas and his demons. Not to mention, how she told the world about their relationship, she has character, strength and brains. Most of all she is not a pushover. As for Dallas he is definitely a mans inside and out. I just wished he trusted Jane more to handle life's curves. But I do empathize with him when it comes to telling Jane about her father. Deep down no child ever wants to believe that their parent or parents can be so cold and calculating. As for the mysterious woman (Adele) I hope she gets what's coming to her as well as Colin. Most of all Jane life hangs in the danger and Dallas is moving heaven and earth to find her. As for their parents I seriously hope they come around or at least let one of the adoption falter if possible.i so on edge right now I can't wait to read Sweetest Taboo.

    No one can know about our love—and hiding only makes it hotter. Dallas Sykes has a reputation. He is known for his parties, his money, and the countless women on his arm. Yet the Dallas I know is a different man—darker, smarter, and unbearably sexy. Just one look from him can leave me breathless; the anticipation of his touch can make me lose control. Inextricably bound by our past, we keep each other’s secrets. And while there are people who have the power to hurt us, it’s the truth that threatens us most of all. Dallas can be mine only behind closed doors, our passion as searing as it is forbidden. Yet nothing in this world has ever felt so desperately, deliciously right. Hottest Mess is the second book in the S.I.N series, if you haven't read Dirtiest Secret, I suggest you do so before delving into the hotness that is Hottest Mess. Dallas and Jane are finally together, but it's behind closed doors and Dallas needs to continue his playboy appearances to help get to the bottom of the kidnapping that occured 17 years prior. The more Dallas and his group, Deliverance, dig for answers, the more secrets he has to keep from Jane. Dallas struggles with the darkness in him after what was done to him during his captivity, but Jane is more than willing to go there with him. It leads to some of the hottest sex scenes ever, and J Kenner burns up the pages as usual with this couple. “This whole thing is a hot mess, you know. How are we ever going to make this work?” The silence between us is long, but then finally he answers. “I don’t know,” he admits. “But we will. Don’t ever doubt it. Don’t ever doubt us.” As the couple struggle to make their relationship work, an outside force is sending Dallas messages that could be trouble. And since this is a S.I.N novel, some old favorites make an appearance. You'll just have to pick up a copy of this steamy novel and let yourself be taken away by some serious hotness!

    Phenomenal. J Kenner's Hottest Mess has blown me away. Dallas and Jane have overcome so much since their kidnapping 17 years ago, but is it enough? Will they ever have peace? Can Dallas's sexual issues be tamed? Will Jane be willing to share her lover? Sexy, raunchy and incredibly dirty...Dallas and Jane are burning up for each other. Will it be enough? Will they be exposed? Can they finally put their past to rest or will old fears come back to haunt them? There are even surprise guest characters that make my heart flutter with happiness. Hottest Mess is the follow-up to Dirtiest Secret and just as sinfully awesome. Yes, there's a beautiful cliffhanger but who cares! This book, the series, is that good!

    I received this Arc for an honest review. I'm very thankful that I did. I loved the first book, Dirtiest Secret, but this book is just wow! The torment between Dallas and Jane is so well written I have to take a few minutes to breathe because I get so emotionally wrapped up in the story. J Kenner can write a romance book let me tell you. And the sex scenes between Dallas and Jane, holy cow they are hot! The suspense about the kidnapping and who did it is driving me crazy with the need to know. And the ending was phenomenal. What a great suspenseful romance! The third book can't get here fast enough.

    I received an ARC for my honest review. This is the second book in the S.I.N. Series. I'm starting to love the dynamics of these characters even more than in Dirtiest Secret. The stalker is getting more agitated with Dallas and Jane. Deliverance is closing in on the jailer that kidnapped Dallas and Jane years ago. Dallas is opening up to Jane about most of his past, but has kept some secrets to protect her. She is having a difficult time forgiving him for not keeping his promise he made to her. Their secret relationship is starting to have major consequences. I'm still rooting for them and can't wait to read Sweetest Taboo.
  • Between the chemistry and the suspenseful story J. Kenner has written, this series is a must read!

    This is the second book in the S.I.N. series and follows the continuation of Dallas and Jane's story. Now that Dallas and Jane have finally committed to each other, they spend four wonderful days together in their own bliss before real life gets in the way. Dallas is throwing one of his "parties" so he can talk with Henry Darcy to see what he actually knows about Deliverance, Dallas' company that finds kidnapped people through any means necessary. Jane is not happy with the persona that Dallas has to maintain. I can understand the jealousy and the irony with this this part is fun. Great writing here! As Deliverance is getting closer to finding out who kidnapped Dallas and Jane 17 years ago, Dallas is keeping certain parts of information from Jane. This causes issues between the two of them. After they kiss and make up, it looks like things are looking better until Dallas and Jane go to a concert for her birthday with Damien & Nikki Stark and Jackson & Sylvia Steele. What happens at this concert is awesome! Such good drama....God, I love these characters! As Dallas and Jane are living with the aftermath of what has happened, Jane finds out that Dallas has been keeping one more huge piece of information from her. He argues he was waiting until he was 100% sure of the fact, but of course this blows up in his face and all hell breaks loose. As Jane goes running out of the house to take a walk and think, bam....an even bigger cliffhanger! Between the chemistry Jane and Dallas have and the suspenseful story J. Kenner has written, this series is a must read!
  • Wow!

    Wow! Finally we get past most, not all, of the OW drama and get to the meat of the story. Wow! Ok, so what I'm loving about this story is Dallas and Jane were kidnapped when they were 15. 17 years later and Dallas is still trying to find the man known as the jailor and the woman who tortured him. They are so close and in my head I'm pretty sure I have the woman figured out but yeah, I could totally be wrong, but that's what is making this story so exciting! We have great progress in Dallas and Janes relationship and there are a few key players in this story that I feel like we will learn more, so I can definately say this series is not boring. The first book was hard cause of the OTT OW drama but with the progress of their relationship, we finally get to focus on the kidnappings and of course we end book 2 on a huge cliffhanger. I can't wait for book 3! ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
