Katrina and Cole are two damaged people trying to find a way to live normal lives. Katrina was raised as a grifter by her con-artist father, but after years of being unsettled she has decided that Chicago will be her home. After finding friendship and acceptance from the person who was once no more than a mark for her, Katrina wants the stability of a home of her own, a legitimate job, and to be with the one man who lights her up; Cole August.
Cole is a product of a tough upbringing and has made a successful career for himself through legal and not so legal ventures. Cole is an artist and a quiet force that many people wouldn't try to go up against. Even with wounds that he doesn't share with anyone Katrina is determined to be a part of his life. Cole doesn't want to inflict his needs and desires on the woman her sees much differently than she sees herself.
Kenner gives a full and interesting story in Ignited with a good storyline, lots of steamy sexiness, and well fleshed out characters. Although this is book 3 in the Most Wanted series I read it as a stand alone title and had no trouble with missed information from previous books.This was my first J. Kenner book and I look forward to going back and reading her earlier work.
**I received an ARC from Netgalley/Bantam Publishing in exchange for an honest review.**
He promised to take me as far as I could go—and I wanted to go to the edge.
My whole life has been a cover, a con, a lie. I was born into the grift, raised on the thrill of playing someone I’m not. As a rule, I never let anyone get too close—until Cole August makes it impossible for me to stay away.
Cole is tough, sexy, and intensely loyal, yet his secrets are dark and his scars run deep. Not many women can handle his past, or the truth behind his fierce demands. But something about him beckons me—and our desire is a game I must play.
I know he’s dangerous, that even his touch is trouble, but what is passion without a little risk?
