Another fantastic addition to the Stark Trilogy! I think we all know how much I love Damien & Nikki – see me profess my love more fully here – so to say that I was a little bit excited to read this novella is an understatement. When I was approved for this ARC I had people at my house and we were all playing a friendly game of poker. I looked up from my phone and told everyone that they had to leave. They laughed. I WASN’T KIDDING. So, now that we know how obsessed I am, let’s talk about Nikki & Damien 😉
We pick back up with Nikki & Damien right after their honeymoon…they’re adjusting to their new life as husband and wife and it’s still a little surreal. The title of the novella ‘Play My Game’ is in reference to a game Damien creates surrounding Valentine’s Day; this game is adorable AND sexy. Damien continues to be unnervingly desirable and the connection between him and Nikki only grows with each page. There was a lot of swooning taking place while I read this novella. Nikki’s great here too – she’s conquering her demons, leaning on Damien as she should & finding her footing in her new crazy world. I loved that Nikki gets a little bit stronger every time that we see her.
OF COURSE there’s drama to be dealt with and an introduction to Mr. Jackson Steele to be made (the leading man in the Stark International series – coming soon!!!). I loved every single page. Nikki and Damien make me smile wide every time I get a new glimpse into their lives. The love they share is unending and perfect, even when the world is not. I could probably read twenty million more pages about them and not get bored – so keep them coming J. Kenner!!! loved this!!
