Wrecked With You by J. Kenner Blog Tour

He never wanted a partner. And then she came along.

After more than a decade chasing shadows, Antonio Santos finally has a lead on the hiding place of The Serpent, the elusive villain who kidnapped him as a child and murdered his mother and uncle. But in order for Tony to get close, he’ll need access to an exclusive private island—where he can only enter with a woman on his arm.

Antonio goes to Stark Security to call in a debt… then walks out with Emma Tucker on his arm. A loner, Antonio isn’t interested in having a partner. He just needs a female. But the striking redhead’s skills soon impress him. More than that, her lush body and beguiling self-assurance tease his senses in unanticipated ways.

A longtime operative with deadly skills, Emma resents being arm candy for someone else’s agenda. But the more she works with Antonio, the more she admires his razor sharp intelligence and formidable prowess. And when the island’s games push them over a sensual cliff, she can’t deny his talents in the bedroom, too.

As passion rises on this island playground full of lust and danger, they both fight the growing attraction between them. But with danger racing toward them from both on and off the island, they soon realize that more than their hearts are at stake. Because unless they can trust and rely on each other, they also risk losing their lives.

Charismatic. Dangerous. Sexy as hell.
Meet the elite team at Stark Security.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the fourth book in the series, and links to a number of other series from the talented J. Kenner. As a big fan, I was delighted with the opportunity to catch up with old friends and see a very worthy Emma get a chance to stop, take stock, and give herself the chance to find love, rather than live to protect.

What a perfect place to meet a potential source... Debauchery Island – this cues up an unusual way for Tony to call in a favour from Stark, and end up on the island with the newly signed up Emma. Yep, fun times for sure – and I loved how the shadows of jealousy made Emma start to question what was happening to her hedonistic, equal opportunities attitude.

A satisfying plot tie up and some lovely humour amongst the gang. Plenty of hints about future issues, and now I just have to be patient and wait for the next one!

Emma had a horrific childhood and despite that, she’s learned to hone her skills so that she can get justice for others. She is amazing at what she does and while she likes working alone, she knows that sometimes, you need people in your corner. But with a past like hers, it takes a while for her to trust. When a job opportunity opens up, Emma is hesitant to take it.

Antonio (Tony) wants to find the man responsible for his mother and uncle’s deaths. He knows that the lead he’s chasing could go nowhere, but he can’t take the chance. When he asks Stark for his help, Tony isn’t expecting Emma, the firecracker.

This is more of an instant attraction story than a true romance. Both of these people are driven by internal motivations, and when their pasts collide, they have to decide if it’s worth the risk to fall in love or if they are better off staying alone.

I enjoyed this story and while I wish that there had been almost less of the romance and more mystery, the story didn’t slow down at all. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
