Ruined With You J. Kenner Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
When her high maintenance boss is assaulted, manager Xena Morgan contacts the only person who can help—the sexy, arrogant, incredibly capable Stark Security agent Liam Foster. The former vigilante takes every case personally, and he's determined to find answers—particularly since he thought he'd cleared this threat already.
Xena had been thrilled when Liam completed his assignment, because he affected her in ways she didn't want to contemplate, awakening yearnings that threatened her deepest secrets.
But now she needs him, and her body won't let her forget it.
As their attraction heats to a feverish degree, the web of lies, danger, and passion they find themselves in tangles further. Liam will stop at nothing to protect his client, even if it means sacrificing everything he holds dear ... and exposing the secrets that may destroy him—and Xena—forever.
Charismatic. Dangerous. Sexy as hell.
Meet the elite team at Stark Security.

User reviews about this book
Liam Foster...has been a man behind the scenes in so many books. He finally takes the spotlight and we discover who the mystery man is. We get more Damien, Ryan/Jamie, Dallas/Jane in this story too. Liam checks a threat against pop star Ella and determined it to be a publicity stunt. Soon after, she’s attacked. He’s back on the job and working with Ella and Xena, her assistant. Xena is mysterious as Liam is and has a bit of a sketchy past that has decided to play catch-up. This is a great read with mystery, suspense, and sexual tension oozing off the pages.

Ruined with You
By Mom's Guilty Pleasure
“...this is a man who sees things. But the more he breaks through the wall that surrounds me, the more I’m afraid he’ll discover my secrets. And that the truth will destroy everything.”
As I was reading this book I kept thinking that this may be the best writing J Kenner has done. Don’t get me wrong~I adore all Nikki and Damien books and they hold a special place in my heart...but there is something about the writing of this book that just captured my soul. It’s different than any Man of the Month, Blackwell-Lyon or other Stark/Security alphas. I can’t put my finger on it...it just burrowed into my soul.
““The fact that you don’t scare me.” I hear the breathiness in my voice. “That’s kind of terrifying.””
I love the loyalty, strength, sacrifice, respect, friendship, even the stubbornness of these characters. I love the insight to the lengths that survivors go through to beat the odds. The determination and courage put forth to obtain something others would never attempt because it is feared to be unobtainable.
❤️ Stark Security!
Liam and Xena ❤️! When you think that J Kenner can’t possibly expand the Stark World any further, she introduces another amazing couple and love story. Both Liam and Xena have been through traumatic experiences and have closed themselves off from the notion of ever being in a relationship. Their world collides when a client of Liam’s is attacked and both he and Xena realize she was the target. While on their journey to find those after her, they develop a deep love and understanding of each other’s past and find that love can conquer all. Ruined With You includes suspense and love with an interesting tease for the next adventure for this series.
Need to read this one
Liam Foster works for Stark Security. Xena Morgan is the manager for music star Ellie Love. Xena has to call Liam back and tell the job is not done. Xena and Liam have some great chemistry and this really make this job for both of them hard.
This is a good read. J. Kenner never disappoints. I always enjoy checking in with Nikki and Damien and all the other Stark family.
I wasn’t anticipating Liam’s story as much as some of the others but, BOY, what a surprise! I really enjoyed his journey with Xena. For me, it was an easy read and hard to put down. At first, I thought that Xena would evade about her past and it would be almost too late before she finally trusted Liam with her story. I’m glad that I was wrong. She was much smarter and intuitive enough to know who to trust. There’s never really been a time that Ms Kenner has disappointed in her writings and this was no different. Very enjoyable and likable couple!
Stark Security keeps getting better and better!!
Liam and Xena have lives have been filled with tragedy. Can they overcome it and find a beautiful life? Liam’s past taught him never to love again. Xena has been on the run for years and never believed she could be free. Once their path’s cross the heat begins. J. Kenner draws you in from the beginning and keeps you there until the very end. This will be one of those books you won’t want to put down.
Another winner by J. Kenner. A definite must read!!
Awesome Romantic Suspense!
This is another wonderful book in this series. Liam and Xena add to the already amazing cast of characters in this Stark Security world. I really enjoyed the story line with all the action and air of mystery. As usual the team works together and gets things done while tossing a bit of humor into otherwise stressful situations. The chemistry between Xena and Liam is something they have a hard time denying so it's explosive when they do finally give in to it. They needed to work through their own stuff in order to see just what they could be together. I absolutely love them for each other. Looking forward to more awesome romantic suspense from J. Kenner!
SSA Saves the Day Again
More of a 3.5 star review. While this is a solid story, that flows, it’s not my favorite book within the SSA. Even though I’ve loved Liam since Dallas and Jane’s trilogy, and Xena is a strong female character, I didn’t really connect with them. They definitely had the chemistry, I just can’t place my finger on it. I felt like some of the background of the secondary/tertiary characters felt a little unresolved even though I see why the author did what she did.
Another hit! This book has the mystery, drama and romance but moves at a fast paced level with the perfect storyline. Liam and Xena embark on a journey to freedom but can they survive? Who’s pulling the strings? Can Stark Security save the day?
Julie Kenner has always captured my heart with her stories. However, she’s completely gone above and beyond excellence with Ruined With You! Her vivid writing and carefully constructed dialogue gave me all the feels!
