Book Review for Hold Me by J. Kenner

Hold Me

by J. Kenner

Arc copy provided for honest review

My life with Damien has never been fuller. Every day is a miracle, and every night I lose myself in the oasis of his arms.

But there are new challenges, too. Our families. Our careers. And new responsibilities that test us with unrelenting, unexpected trials.

I know we will survive—we have to. Because I cannot live without Damien by my side. But sometimes the darkness seems overwhelming, and I am terrified that the day will come when Damien cannot bring the light. And I will have to find the strength inside myself to find my way back into his arms.

     Yet other installment of the Stark International Trilogy.I have to say that Nikki and Damien are one of my favorite power couple.

I have loved each and everyone of The Stark Book Trilogy with Damien and Nikki.I loved how the author decided to do a novella on how Damien and Nikki are coping with being new parents.

In this story we see just how Nikki's character
had evolved and grown throughout these stories and certainly this one.I love the chemistry this couple have not only that but they truly and deeply love one another.I just love these two as they are so cute together as a couple and with their family.For me Nikki balances Damien's life.She keeps him grounded has softened him a bit but not only that he has put his priorities first family and children then his business.

Nikki was probably the most emotional as she has ever been in this story.Learning to balance life and work Nikki's emotional state is always top priority especially on how she dealt with her pain in her past.Nikki used to be a cutter and this is how she dealt with her pain in the past and she fights the temptation all the time.At this point we see the new an improved Nikki on how love,marriage children have made her the strongest she has ever been.I loved seeing these breakthroughs and that she finally found the happiness she so deserved.

I am glad to see that marriage and children hasn't tamed Damien to much.He is still sexy as hell and is still into heating up things between himself and Nikki.Let the sexual games begin.

A enjoyable tale of love,romance ,change and children.We loved another tale staring Nikki and Damien a couple you never get tired reading about.

A recommended read to all for those who read the Stark International Trilogy.

5 stars from us

I smile at the text from Damien, then immediately tap out a reply.
Much. Thank you.
It’s past noon, and I’ve spent a productive morning in my office getting all my proverbial ducks in order. Marge is making calls to all our clients to let them know about Eric’s departure and to tell them I’ll be calling to update them later in the week. Abby is taking point on hiring one new person who can walk the line between tech and client relations, and I’m doing everything else.
So far, there’ve been no crises today, and I’m feeling about eight thousand percent better than I was yesterday. It was still hard leaving the girls this morning, but I went in a bit later, and so we had breakfast and some playtime together.
Glad to hear it. Sending a car for you at five.
I frown, then tap out a reply.
I have Coop here. I drove my Mini Cooper into the office this morning and he’s tucked away in the small parking garage that serves my building.
He can stay in the garage overnight. I want you relaxed. We have plans tonight.
I laugh, delighted.
Are you handling me, Mr. Stark?
His reply is swift: Absolutely.
Love you. (Whispers: but I want to see my babies)
I can almost picture him smiling when he sends the next reply.
No need to whisper. I want to see them, too. Then I want to see you. Alone.
I sigh and realize that I’m smiling, the stress of the last twenty-four hours fading to zero. Maybe Jamie and Abby are right. Maybe I have got this.
Sounds good to me, I reply.
His final text comes almost immediately, tugging at my heart—and at other more intimate places.
Excellent. I’ll see you tonight, Ms. Fairchild. Until then, imagine me, touching you.
For the rest of the day, I spend a lot of time doing exactly that, and by the time Edward—Damien’s personal driver—comes into the office to tell me that he’s ready to take me home, I’m very much in the mood to see my husband.
