Release Blitz + 5 Star Review Review: Bitch Slap by J. Kenner



Bitch Slap

By J. Kenner

Buy: Amazon


The first time I met her I wanted to slap her.

The second time, I knew I had to have her.

As for the third time, a gentleman doesn’t tell.

So I guess it’s a good thing I’m no gentleman … right?

Let’s get this out of the way, right off the bat: I love women.

I love the way they look. The way they smell. The way they feel. Especially the way they feel. And I’ve pretty much made it my mission to give each and every woman who shares my bed the ride of her life.

Then I met her. Bitchy as hell and completely uninterested in me. And damned if I didn’t want her. Crave her. I told myself I only wanted to tame her. That it was all about the challenge.

I never expected to break through that ice queen exterior and find the softness underneath. Never expected how wild she’d be between the sheets or the way she’d cry my name with such sincere intensity when I totally rocked her world.

Most of all, I never expected to fall for her.

But I did.

And the question is, now that I know I want her, how the hell do I go about keeping her?







Michel’s Review

I love it when one of my favorite authors jumps outside of the world they created but still maintains the flavor while adding a new spices to make it all the more tastier.  Although Bitch Slap by J. Kenner is not a Stark International novel, it is still loosely a part of that Stark world but with new faces, new industries, new plots, and a bonus of some of the Stark cast playing a very minor background roles.

Pierce Blackwell, part owner of Blackwell-Lyon Security, is dedicated to building the new business in Austin.  His mistress is his business.  He doesn’t do relationships, he never sees a woman twice, and he never puts himself in a situation that would require any kind of commitment (other than his business).  He is a commitment phobe and wears the banner with pride.

When an anonymous hook up through the 2Nite app turns into a complete disaster, it leaves Pierce Blackwell in an odd predicament.  First it leaves him dateless for the night. Second it leaves him intrigued with Jez Stuart, who quite easily put him in his place.  Thirdly, it is a great opportunity to land a great job that could lead to other great jobs in the future.  What’s a guy to do?  Find Jez Stuart, save the day, secure a contract, and flirt endlessly until she lands in his bed.

Austin meets Hollywood.  Hollywood takes over Austin.  Jez and Pierce finally stop to smell the roses and finally see that the pastures are greener on the other side.  Getting to that point is a pure delight.  They are getting a Bitch Slap by J. Kenner with a little help from some of their Stark friends.

This book came as a complete surprise.  I was immediately hooked and could not put this book down until it was finished.  It was loaded with good humor, the right amount of angst, and some very sexy groveling. This book was completely different from the Stark books.  It had a lighter feel and was more playful.  J. Kenner has a new cast of characters begging for their own page time.  I can’t wait to see what comes next.
