From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author J. Kenner comes a new story in her Stark International series…
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 to not only bring her back, but to convince her that she’s running away from the best thing that ever happened to her—him.
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

I wish, I wish, I wish this was a novel. I'd love to see an in depth look into Jamie and Ryan's life. This really can't be read alone. It needs to be read after The Stark Trilogy. This is a quick read. A quick yummy read.
This was a ok book. It was good but I wish it wasn't rushed and could have been a series like D&N. I would have loved to get to know each of them better. Other than that it was a good book.
Ryan proved capable of taming Jamie by collaring her.
This is part of the Stark International Trilogy. This is Ryan and Jamie's short erotic story. They were minor characters in the series and were mentioned briefly. J. Kenner decided to expand on their interest in one another by gracing the readers with a short erotic story on how these two formed an arrangement together.
Ryan is the Chief of security for Stark International. This was a company he started and owned but sold to Damien Stark. Jamie is an actress living in LA but moving to Texas for a career change. Jamie has been with a slew of men in LA. When she met Ryan she hoped he would make the first move. Jamie decided to question Ryan's motives regarding their predicament. Ryan stated that Jamie's ammo is to make the first move so when she does he declines.
Jamie had two choices: first choice stay in LA and continue having sex with Ryan or the second choice go to Las Vegas and pursue her plan of a career change.
The story is erotic and full of sex. The sex is everything I've read before. The focus is on Jamie and her being at Ryan's mercy while in Vegas. The relationship moves quickly in the short time they were together.
Having not read the Stark Trilogy I felt a disconnect with these characters. It's best to read the series then go back and read this one in order to get more acquainted with these characters. Otherwise, you might feel detached as I was not having the familiarity of them working close together and building that sexual tension that was implied.
