Memories Of You
(A Stark Security Novella)
by J. Kenner
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author J. Kenner comes a new story in her Stark Security series…
Hollywood consultant Renly Cooper is fed up with relationships. His recent breakup with a leading lady played out across the tabloids, and the former Navy Seal is more than ready to focus on his new position as an agent at the elite Stark Security agency. He’s expecting international stakes. Instead, his first assignment is to protect one of Damien Stark’s friends from a stalker. A woman who, to his delight, turns out to be one of his closest childhood friends.
After a foray into online dating puts tech genius Abby Jones in danger, she needs a bodyguard, and her business partner, Nikki Fairchild Stark, enlists help from Stark Security. When the assigned agent turns out to be her best friend from junior high—and her first crush—she’s thrilled to discover he’s even more delicious now. She hopes one sexy night can turn into more, but Renly is firmly in the friends-with-benefits camp.
As the threat to Abby increases, she tries to keep her growing feelings for Renly at bay. But as the sparks between them burn even hotter, can they go from friends to lovers when the first order of business is simply to keep Abby alive?

An Exclusive Interview With J. Kenner:

I lalaloved Abby and Renly and their story! How did you choose them for this novella?
YAY! I’m so glad you loved their story! I do, too! As for how, I’ve been wanting to write a story for Abby for a while now. She’s just got such spunk and she’s so smart and such a terrific partner to Nikki, but she never found the right guy. So I played author matchmaker, LOL, and set her up with Red’s brother (I had NO idea he had a brother when I wrote Cherish Me, but turns out he does!). Red’s book is coming in September: Ravaged With You
I am a sucker for a second-chance romance. What are some of your fave tropes to read and are they different than what you like to write?
I love, love, love second chance romance (reading and writing), but I can’t say that I have a favorite trope. I will read anything and everything from super-sweet romances to dark and gritty romance to high fantasy to cozy mysteries. Second-chance romance, enemies-to-lovers, fish-out-of water. You name it, I’ll read it!
