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.

~ 5 Hot Mess Stars ~
Can I just say that the title is totally fitting for this book…..HOTTEST MESS, but in the most spectacular way!!!
I always find reviewing a second book in the series to be on the hard side. Just because you really can’t say much, as with the case of this book. So this review might be on the shorter side.
Let me start by saying OMG…..THAT ENDING!!! I need the final book NOW!!! As with book 1, Dirtiest Secret, this book ends on a Cliffhanger, and this one is BRUTAL!! At this point I would suggest anyone who doesn’t like cliffhangers to wait for all three books to be released before starting this series. I know I will be dying until the final book comes out.
Hottest Mess is the second book in J. Kenner’s S.I.N. Trilogy and it was just a fabulous as the first book. This story sucked me in and held on until the very last page. This book focused more on Dallas and Jane’s relationship. We do start getting some of the answers to the questions raised in book 1, but not a lot and it really only lead to more questions. In this one we get to see how Dallas and Jane handle their taboo/forbidden relationship and what happens if they go public? To say their story is a rollercoaster is putting it mildly. There are so many ups and downs with this book that my heart was constantly beating fast!!! I truly couldn’t read this book fast enough. Unlike in book 1, Dallas and Jane are not in the best of places at the end….I am interested to see where Ms. Kenner takes them in the final book.
At the end of the Dirtiest Secret, I thought I had an idea of where this story was going, but I can say I was completely wrong and I love the direction the author took with this series. I am going to guess that the final book will FINALLY give us the answers we have been craving and I really hope Dallas and Jane get their HEA!!!! I have read other books by J. Kenner, but I have to say by far this is my favorite series!! I love her writing style with these books. We get both POV’s and a storyline that was totally captivating. Everything flowed smoothly and the pace was excellent.
The story of Dallas and Jane is a mixture of taboo, forbidden, second chance and even mystery/suspense. This is probably one of my favorite storylines to date. It has so much going on that you can’t help but be captivated and root for them to get their HEA. This book is NOT a standalone and you do have to read the books in order to follow along with the story, but again if cliffhangers aren’t your thing, WAIT until all three books are out….but you will definitely want to read this series!!!
This is definitely a MUST READ SERIES and will be at the top of my favorite books of 2016 list!!!!
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.
