Aspiring actress Jamie Archer is on the run. From herself. From her wild-child ways. From the screwed up life that she left behind in Los Angeles. And, most of all, from Ryan Hunter - the first man who has the potential to break through her defenses to see the dark fears and secrets she hides.
Stark International security chief Ryan Hunter knows only one thing for sure - he wants Jamie. Wants to hold her, make love to her, possess her, and claim her. Wants to do whatever it takes to make her his. But after one night of bliss, Jamie bolts. And now it's up to Ryan not only to bring her back but to convince her that she's running away from the best thing that ever happened to her - him.

This Stark Int. novella is so very opposite of tame. For being a novella the characters have depth, passion, fear & hope. This kind of strength is often lost in a novella. Bravo to the Author, J.Kenner for burning up the pages & the sheets once again.
Abby Craden delivers in spades. She makes you feel every emotion right along with her.
Downloading the the next installment as I write this.
Definitely credit worthy!!!
A reviewer at Guilty Indulgence Review Site. I don't go anywhere without a book -ebook or audiobook.
Yes! I'm so happy there's more books that now focus on the secondary characters in the Stark International world. If they are all as good as this prequel, this is going to be amazing!
Hurry and listen to this book!
Novellas are great for giving finishing touches to stories told in a book--weddings, honeymoons,births etc.. However they are not so good for telling the whole story of a relationship, at least not in a good way. Poor Jamie deserved her own book or to be left alone. This rushed two day coverage of their story is just sad. Seriously, it was hot sex with hard core bondage , job offer , run away, rescue, Vegas , backdoor sex, interview of a lifetime with no prep, run away , rescue, HEA?????
I loved the Stark books and Jamie was a great friend to Nikki. Too bad she didn't get the story she deserved
I have loved all the Stark international novels. I even loved the other novella but, this one was way too short. It just ended, like the author was out of ideas and decided to just end it instead of developing the story. All of the other stories really engrossed the reader, or listener, in the emotions of the Characters. I have shed many a tear in happiness and sadness, throughout this series. However, this story didn't even reach any kind of emotion; other than disappointment in the Conclusion. This woman had deep emotional scars and healed herself in a matter of 24 hours. Seriously? I also wish the author, which I love, would remove the word 'c_nt' from her vocabulary. These characters are supposed to be middle to upper class and my Midwest experience has taught me that most women, with any self respect , hate that word. It is a word more suited for a Penthouse article; and I like kink just as much as any adventurous woman. I hope there will be more stories like the others in this series. Wait until it is on sale, it's definitely not worth a cost of a credit.
