Wicked Grind - J Kenner

#Review: Wicked Grind by J. Kenner @juliekenner @eternal_books


Sometimes it feels so damn good to be bad…

Photographer Wyatt Royce’s career is on the verge of exploding. All he needs is one perfect model to be the centrepiece of his sexy, controversial show and he’s sure to have a winner.

Then Kelsey Draper walks in. Stunning. Vibrant. And far too fragile for a project like this. Wyatt should know – he remembers vividly how their relationship ended all those years ago.

Desperate for cash and frustrated with her good girl persona, Kelsey sets her sights on Wyatt’s show – and only the show. Because Wyatt Royce is a danger to her heart. Still, she can’t help wondering if she’s in too deep when Wyatt agrees to give her the job only if he has complete control on camera – and in his bed…


I’m new to the world of J. Kenner but I definitely won’t be staying a stranger after reading this.

Wyatt is a photographer who is putting together a controversial and steamy show which will lift his career to new heights. He needs a model, the perfect model, he has a vision of what he wants in his head but he can’t find her. Until Kelsey walks in his studio and he realises she has been what he’s been looking for. The irony is she was the girl who broke his 18 year old heart and he’s not sure he wants to let her in his life in any way.

I love this couple, their pull towards each other was palpable while they had so much baggage from their past which was causing so many issues. All they needed was to talk and be honest but neither of them was willing to actually have that conversation which was making their lives so much more difficult.

Kelsey’s brother though, oh, Kelsey’s brother, can we have a book with him? Oh, I hope so. He totally stole the show for me. I could read about him all day.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the way that the tension is built up throughout with very little physical contact makes it sizzle and very hard to put down. I’m definitely a new fan and will be jumping into J. Kenner’s back catalogue.

A huge thanks to J Kenner and Headline Eternal for the ARC so that I could read and honestly review this novel.
