McKay-Taggart operative Riley Blade has no intention of returning to Los Angeles after his brief stint as a consultant on mega-star Lyle Tarpin’s latest action flick. Not even for Natasha Black, Tarpin’s sexy personal assistant who’d gotten under his skin. Why would he, when Tasha made it absolutely clear that—attraction or not—she wasn’t interested in a fling, much less a relationship.
But when Riley learns that someone is stalking her, he races to her side. Determined to not only protect her, but to convince her that—no matter what has hurt her in the past—he’s not only going to fight for her, he’s going to win her heart. Forever.
4 Star Review by Ashley
Confession time: this is the first book I've ever read from J. Kenner and I have been missing wayyyyyyy out (I promise to remedy that very soon). Justify Me grabbed me from the first page and I didn't put it down until there were no words left.
I liked that Riley was over it, moving out of a city that held nothing but bad memories for him. But it just took one phone call to change that. Natasha, the woman he can't help but want is in trouble, maybe. It all started with a research trip to a sex club...As it turns out- she needs more help than she thought. The threats that she had excuses for were much more serious than anybody knew.
For as independent and strong-willed as Natasha is, she still leaned on Riley. They shared a common loss that bonded them but also stirred up painful memories that they both wish they could forget. As the mystery surrounding Tasha's stalker starts to unravel, it left everyone spinning their wheels trying to get to Natasha in time. Because nobody saw it coming!
Justify Me was dangerous and sexy had me wanting so much more Riley and Tasha. I know I will be going on a one-click spree to catch up on the what I'm sure is awesome Stark International series from J. Kenner.
