The S.I.N. series continues with the seductive follow-up to the Stark International Novel Dirtiest Secret, from the New York Times bestselling author of “red-hot and angsty” fiction that “keeps readers guessing” (Publishers Weekly, on Under My Skin).
No one can know about our love—and hiding only makes it hotter.
Dallas Sykes has a reputation. He is known for his parties, his money, and the countless women on his arm. Yet the Dallas I know is a different man—darker, smarter, and unbearably sexy. Just one look from him can leave me breathless; the anticipation of his touch can make me lose control. Inextricably bound by our past, we keep each other’s secrets. And while there are people who have the power to hurt us, it’s the truth that threatens us most of all. Dallas can be mine only behind closed doors, our passion as searing as it is forbidden. Yet nothing in this world has ever felt so desperately, deliciously right.
Hottest Mess is intended for mature audiences.

REVIEWED BY JILL
Book two in the S.I.N. trilogy picks up right where book one left off with Dallas and Jane finally succumbing to their desires. This book must be read after book one in order to understand just what the heck is going on with the Sykes family. Where book one weaved an intricate tale of their story from seventeen years ago this book deals with the here and now. Jane & Dallas are trying to navigate a secret relationship that they both desperately want to broadcast to the world...but can't.
Jane is done watching Dallas with other women and tells him as such but realizes that his job will still require him to wine and dine the same easy women he has stuck with in the past. Jane not wanting to interfere with his work tries to remove herself from the situation which forces Dallas to prioritize.
Dallas finally comes clean to Jane about what happened to him when he was held captive by the woman in the mask. Jane wholly understands why Dallas has the intimacy issues he does as well a few other things that have been plaguing him. Finally finding a common ground and building a solid foundation after Dallas' admission seems to be exactly what they needed until something else comes along to try and take it away from them again.
Smoking hot, laced in sin and wrapped in mystery is a great way to describe the first two and with one more book to go in the trilogy it's looking like it will be even better than the others. I for one can't wait to see what J. Kenner brings us next :)
From the New York Times bestselling author of such “racy, sizzling Stark novels” (RT Book Reviews) as Release Me and Say My Name comes the provocative first Stark International Novel—the beginning of the S.I.N. series.
It was wrong for us to be together, but it was even harder to be apart.
The memory of Dallas Sykes burns inside of me. Everyone knows him as a notorious playboy, a man for whom women and money are no object. But to me, he’s still the one man I desperately crave—yet the one I can never have. Dallas knows me better than anyone else. We bear the same scars, the same darkness in our past. I thought I could move on by staying away, but now that we’re drawn together once more, I can’t fight the force of our attraction or the temptation to make him mine. We’ve tried to maintain control, not letting ourselves give in to desire. And for so long we’ve told ourselves no—but now it’s finally time to say yes.
Dirtiest Secret is intended for mature audiences.
