~Review: Ignited (Most Wanted #3) by J. Kenner~

For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, Bared to You, and Release Me comes an all-new erotic series of three enigmatic and powerful men, and the striking women who can bring them to their knees.

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?

Ignited is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Overall Rating:  5 Rockin’ ★★★★

Katrina was raised by her father in the grift, learning at an early age to work a con, play games and lie easily. Her life had been one of endless moves, no putting down roots, no family and always on the edge of being caught.  When she left her father in Florida and landed in Chicago she had started a new life and started putting down roots.  Katrina has made friends and found a man that she is obsessed with having!  He is a part of the Chicago Knights and one of the group of friends she has made but she wants more than just friendship.  She has decided to use her skills learned in the grift to help her get the man of her dreams, Cole August.

Cole is one of Chicago’s elite, one of the three known as the Knights.  With his two partners they wielded a power to be reckoned with in the legitimate and illegitimate world.  He is also a gifted artist and patron of the arts.  His past is haunted by the horrors that he experienced growing up.  Cole’s mother was a drug addict and he was born addicted with impulse control issues.  During his early years he had cared for his grandmother and aunt and at the age of eleven became the man of the house.  The only way for him to take care of his family was by being part of a gang.  His time as member left scars on his soul that seemed never to go away.  Cole had wanted Katrina for years but stayed away from her because he did not feel like she would be safe with him.  His temper was explosive and sometimes his control slipped. 

Who is Cole August really?  Katrina wants to know everything about the man up close and personal.  He is the man that she wants and will do whatever she needs to do to claim him as her own.  When her father shows up on her doorsteps she realizes that her past has caught up with her and now may jeopardize her future with Cole.  Will Cole be able to help Katrina?  Can he save her father?  Will they find a way to leave the past and find the future?  Read this book and walk with Cole and Katrina as they find their way forward.
