From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author J. Kenner comes a new story in her Stark Ever After series…

Each day with Damien is a miracle, each moment with our children a gift. And yet I cannot escape the growing sense that a storm is gathering, threatening to pull me away, to rip us apart. To drag me down, once again, into a darkness to which I swore never to return.

I have to fight it—I know that. And I am waging the battle with of all my heart. But it is Damien who is my strength, and we both know that the only way to push away the darkness is for him to fold me in his arms and claim me completely. And for me to surrender myself, once again, to the fire that burns between us.

After we tuck Lara back into bed, Damien and I walk in silence to our bedroom. As soon as I close the door behind us, I expect him to speak. But he says nothing. Just sits in the armchair by the window and loosens his tie.

I go to him, then kneel at his feet, my hands on his thighs. “Damien,” I whisper. “Please.”

The corner of his mouth curves up. “Anything, baby. You know that.”

But I don’t know it. Not really. Because I’ve asked him to tell me what’s wrong, and he’s remained silent. But that’s what I need. That’s what will make me whole—getting into his head. Understanding him.

Most of all, helping him.

“Damien,” I whisper as I look into those eyes that have seen all the way into my soul. “Please. Please tell me what’s wrong.”

An infinity passes between us in the space of a breath, then a small, sad smile touches his lips. “Everything is fine, Nikki. I promise.”

Anger boils in me, as hot as wildfire and at least as destructive. I want to scream at him that I know something is off. I want to yell that I can practically smell the secrets. I want to beg him to tell me. Because doesn’t he understand how much his silence hurts?

I say none of that, though. Instead, I press down on his thighs as I lever myself back up.


“I need to check on Anne.” My voice is sharp, my words nothing more than an excuse to leave. Because if I stay, I’m going to sink to the ground and beg. But I don’t want to beg. I want him to tell me. To keep his promise that there would be no more secrets between us.




My ARC Review:

It’s been a while since I read about Damien Stark and his wonderful wife Nikki, but this wonderful little novella brought me right back into their world, and its a wonderful place to be!!

Nikki is working from home looking after the kids and developing new Apps, she couldn’t be in a better place, except something is troubling Damien, he’s a little off and she knows it, but he’s not fessing up. So she plans a weekend away, just the two of them, to take his mind off whatever is bothering him, except it doesn’t quite turn out the way she planned!!

I loved it and devoured it in no time, and it left me wanting more of Damien and Nikki as usual!! A great little treat for any Stark fans out there!!
