Wicked Grind by J. Kenner


Sometimes, it feels so damn good to be bad…

Photographer Wyatt Royce’s career is on the verge of exploding. All he needs is one perfect model to be the centerpiece of his sexy, controversial show. Find her, and Wyatt is sure to have a winner.

Then Kelsey Draper walks in. Stunning. Vibrant. And far too fragile for a project like this. Wyatt should know—after all, he remembers only too well how their relationship ended all those years ago.

Desperate for cash and frustrated with her good girl persona, Kelsey sets her sights on Wyatt’s show. But only the show. Because she knows too well that Wyatt Royce is a danger to her heart.

But when Wyatt agrees to give her the job only if he has complete control—on camera and in his bed—Kelsey can’t help but wonder if she’s in too deep. Because how can a good girl like her ever be enough for a man like Wyatt?

All Wicked novels standalone.

Wyatt and Kelsey have a past. One that both have very different views on what and how it occurred. Now that they are all grown, it's tough to let the past go.

Wyatt is looking for a model for his show. He is searching for someone specific, but just hasn't really been able to figure it out. He is a successful photographer, but he feels the constant pressure to succeed given that he comes from such a successful family.

Kelsey is struggling. She has been ever since she had to leave Wyatt. Despite her struggles, she tries to put on her big girl panties to work with Wyatt. However, once she realizes that he hates her, she can only bring herself to leave again.

These two are stripped to the bone in this story of redemption, love, and second chances. It was powerful and sad. The writing was thoughtful and I liked how you were able to see past and present viewpoints.

I hope that Kelsey's brother gets a story himself!

Anyone who has read Ms. Kenner’s books before will soon slip back into her wonderfully smooth writing style and find that the pages and hours have passed far sooner than they expected. For a new reader – wow, what a treat awaits you, with a fabulous back catalogue to indulge in next!

Even though these two people met and fell for each other years ago, there are some serious misunderstandings which need resolving before the resentment and upset of the past can be laid to rest. And for quite a while, we have to be very patient and not shout at them to talk to each other... but the wait is definitely worthwhile, and any romance reader should be satisfied by the way their romance progresses. I enjoyed the insight into the world of a man whose ambition follows that of his family, and yet wants his recognition to be due to talent not loyalty to his family name. The description of Kelsey's transformation when dancing really made me think about how she could free her spirit and leave her family worries behind.

I am delighted to think that there are more stories to come, and am sure that Ms. Kenner has some treats up her sleeve!
