From New York Times and #1 International bestselling author J. Kenner…
Sometimes bad isn’t good enough…
On the outside, Lyle Tarpin is a clean-cut Hollywood actor whose star is on the rise. Inside, he’s battling his own demons, shunning relationships and finding solace in the arms of a string of anonymous women paid very well for their discretion.
But when he’s photographed in a compromising position by an over-eager reporter, the only way to save his career is to say that the woman he was with is his fiancée. And now Lyle has to play a very public game with the only woman who’s ever managed to get under his skin.
Struggling waitress Sugar Laine agrees to spend one night with Lyle—but only because she’s desperate to save her family home. She never expects that a night of passion will turn into a pretend engagement … or that the heat between them will blossom into love.
But sometimes love has a price.
And now the only question is—can Lyle and Sugar afford to pay it?

I love everything about this book! Lyle and Laine have past hurts but will their secrets stay hidden? Will their love and commitment to a future together be derailed by revelations?
This Stark World book is well written and worth the read. I love how Julie ties Damien and Nikki, along with the rest of the crew, into Lyle's life. The descriptive writing had me emotionally drained and thirsty for more reading. Wicked Dirty is a beautiful story and I soundly recommend it. A. Must. Read.
“I’m not even sure why I’m crying. For my house? For my stupidity? For this man’s pain? A man who projects such kindness and innocent charm to the world, but here in this room is so obviously, painfully tortured?”
How can you not love a book with these character traits “But drinking, reading, and relaxing are tops of my To Do list”. J Kenner, J Kenner, J Kenner you have stolen my heart again. There is so much about this book I love. It started with the storyline and dynamics between the characters. You just know it will be explosive, tear jerking, deeply emotional and then waiting for the chemistry to kick in that you know will be off the charts. Toss in all of our favorite previous characters and sprinkle them throughout the story and I was done for.
““It’s a pressure release. A controlled explosion.” “Controlled,” I repeat. “Usually,” he whispers as his hands glide down my bare arms. “But sometimes it gets completely out of control. Sometimes,” he says, “I want it to.””
Lyle has wormed his way up (to close) to the top of my list...I didn't think that would be possible butttt that strong willed, sexy, smart, loyal, womanizing man has a heart of gold. I anxiously await your next masterpiece.
Lyle and Sugar rocked my world. The Stark world continues to bring me some of my favorite couples and the stories are always so well written with not only a great story, but such well written characters. Lyle and Sugar who have so much in common even though their lives are in completely different spots. I loved that Sugar fell for who Lyle was underneath the star persona. He was always just a guy that she was falling for, he was never this mega star. Lyle and Sugar helped each other move on from the pasts that were suffocating them. This book made me feel so much. I love that J Kenner does that to me in every story. I truly feel everything the characters are feeling. The love and the hurt. Reading these books truly takes me into the Stark world. Great read!
