J. Kenner- Wicked Torture | ARC Review


Title: Wicked Torture (Stark World #3)
Author: J.Kenner
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: November 14, 2017


Outwardly, Noah Carter is riding high as the tech world’s hottest new genius. Inside, he’s still reeling from the abduction of his wife and baby daughter eight years ago, and then the devastating discovery of his child’s body. For years, he kept up hope that his wife was alive, but now that she’s been declared legally dead, he’s thrown himself even more deeply into his work, cutting himself off from emotional ties because they just hurt too damn much.

Then he meets Kiki Porter, an eternal optimist with a killer work ethic and dreams of fronting a band. And everything changes. Even though he tries his damnedest to fight it…

Sexually, they are combustible together. But their true fire is emotional, though it is a slow to burn. But once it lights, it is all consuming. The relationship grows emotionally, the sex is hot, things are good.

But just when it’s looking like they might have a real future together, the past comes back to haunt them. And Noah’s going to have to decide what he’s willing to give up for love …

Lord save me from having to read books that promise so many thing but deliver NOTHING! OK.. maybe Nothing is being a little too harsh! This was an OK book.. nothing to rave and rant about to your friends. It’s a “been there- done that” kind of book.

Let me tell you something.. That synopsis ↑ Doesn’t it just entice you? Makes you feel like you are going to go into a whole lot of emotions, right?! Nada!

Noah and Kiki are both very lovable characters. But… ok… here’s the thing… I know these characters don’t exist but as readers we want to believe that the story could be believable…getting me? Yes Noah is generally a good man, Kiki is also a lovable character but thats about it..they are better off as secondary characters with interesting pasts but something you don’t really want to venture out into.

The last few chapters were exhausting for me. So many back and forth( And not in a good way). We love angst, we love romance and suspense BUT stupidity?! The door is to your left, Thank you for your time.

  1. I want to read this trilogy so badly since I have recently gotten hooked on this authors writing. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one, sounds like a shame about the ending though. I don’t care too much for stupid acts especially toward the end, I think that should be more at the beginning right? But I guess we are all flawed beings. Great review.
