Review: Heated by J. Kenner

I knew better than to risk my heart.
But fierce passion comes at a high price.

I grew up believing in right and wrong, good and evil, black and white. I knew better than to trust. And then I met Tyler Sharp.

Bold, charming, and dangerously sexy, Tyler always gets what he wants. But his smile can be deceiving, his dealings sordid, his ambitions ruthless. I thought I was the one woman strong enough to resist him, but our need for each other was too urgent to deny.

One look and I was in trouble. One touch and I was hooked. One night and I became his.

And now that I’ve fallen, there’s no going back.

Heated is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Kindle Edition, 272 pages
Expected publication: June 3rd 2014 by Bantam 
Genre: Erotica

Kristine's Thoughts:

I received an advanced readers copy of this book from Random House Publishing Group - Bantam via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. The expected publication date is June 3, 2014.

Heated is the second book in the Most Wanted series but can be read as a stand alone. I did read Wanted, the first book, but have no doubt that I could have still followed along if I hadn't. The first book was about Evan and this one is about Tyler and the next one I assume will be about Cole.

As warned in the synopsis, this book is intended for mature audiences and the pages heat up pretty much at the very beginning. In fact, there was so much sex that I wasn't sure if there would be a story to go with it. The chemistry and lust between Sloane and Tyler was off the charts. As I continued through the pages I was happy to see that a story does evolve to go along with their between the sheets action.

There was something that I really liked about Tyler but I can't really put a finger on it. Perhaps it was his bad boy, take charge attitude or maybe it was just his skills in the bedroom. Whatever it was I liked it. Although he was shady I still found him appealing. I didn't warm up to Sloane quite as much. Perhaps it was the things she was willing to do and the lengths she was willing to go to solve her mystery that did it. She was willing to sleep with Tyler to get information before she even knew that they had wild sexual chemistry.

The story itself was alright but I did think that the emotional connection between them was a little rushed and underdeveloped. I could feel the sexual chemistry but the emotional chemistry got a little lost in the heat as did the rest of the story. The ending was also a little rushed and a little anti climatic.

If you are a fan of books with a lot of steam, heat and sex you will probably really like this book. For me, I wished that the rest of the story was as strong.
