Review for Hottest Mess by J. Kenner - 5 out of 5!
SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -
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.
MY REVIEW -
So, I finished the first book and went right into this one because this series draws you in. It's intense and the connection between the characters makes my heart swoon with the depth of passion the main characters have for each other. You definitely need to read the first book before this one since this one picks up right where the previous one ended. Dallas and Jane have decided that they are going to be together, but they are trying to keep it on the down low due to them being brother and sister; even if it's through adoption, they know people; especially their parents, won't understand. They are also looking for more clues about their kidnapping, which means Dallas needs to continue with his manwhore persona, which I just hate, and really hate a conversation that Jane and Dallas have at a party towards the beginning of the book about threesomes, but I just skimmed those parts. Luckily those kind of actions and talk doesn't happen for long, so it didn't affect my rating. Dallas and Jane still have a deep, intense connection, and their relationship is just so sweet! Dallas has a lot of emotional and physical trauma he needs to deal with, and finds out some shocking information regarding Jane and his kidnapping; plus he's receiving some mysterious messages threatening Jane. The sex scenes are still raw, kinky, and primal, and Dallas and Jane are perfect for each other. This book focuses a lot on Dallas and Jane's relationship evolving, and working through past traumas. This one was just as entertaining as the first, and as with the first I needed to keep reading till the end. On to the 3rd!
