Today, I am pleased to be a stop on author Harper Miller’s Blog Tour for RENEWED, the second installment in the KinkyConnect Chronicles. Please enjoy the excerpt, my review, and clickclickclick... this title is available for purchase!
Meet the Author
Harper Miller is a thirty-something native New Yorker. She’s traveled the world and lived in a variety of places but always finds her way back to the Big Apple.
A lackluster love life leaves time to explore new interests, for Harper it is writing. The Sweetest Taboo: An Unconventional Romance is her debut novel. In her mind the perfect Alpha male possesses intellect, humor, and a kinky streak that rivals the size of California.
When she isn’t writing, Harper utilizes her graduate degree in the field of medical research. She enjoys fitness-related activities, drinking copious amounts of wine, and going on bad dates.
She loves hearing from readers. Feel free to reach out!

brwngrltrvler: I’m not in NYC at the moment. I’m overseas, for work.
JapKenDoll: Nice! Your passport is getting a workout. That’s right, you did say it was late where you are. Where’d your travels take you?
brwngrltrvler: Why are you asking? You plan on flying all the way from New York, Superman? I’m in London.
There’s a long pause.
JapKenDoll: Good thing I just got my cape back from the dry cleaners. :) Tanya, I kid you not, I’m in Paris for work. It’s Fashion Week, which is a pretty big deal in my industry. I realize this is going to sound crazy, and you’ll probably say no, but I’d like to meet you. I fly out of De Gaulle with a layover at Heathrow for about an hour tomorrow. We can grab a cup of coffee as friends.
Well, that explains him checking into a hotel. Friends. Hmm, friends. Well, Kenji said he was transparent, but he doesn’t want to be just friends; I am sure of it. We were chatting via a kink-centric website. This is where people went for hookups. I’m sure he wanted something, something I most likely couldn’t give him.
brwngrltrvler: That’s a bad idea, Kenji.
JapKenDoll: Better to meet in London than New York, right? Afterward, you go off in your direction, I go in mine, and we never have to see each other again. Humor me. Have coffee with a man you’ll never see again. :)
I know it’s a bad idea, everything in my being is screaming it’s a bad idea. I’m emotional, I’m raw, I’m . . . stupid.
brwngrltrvler: What time?
Yes, incredibly stupid.
I have to say that I am enjoying this neat series from Harper Miller, all centered around a steamy little website called KinkySingles.com. The first story, Ironic was BLISTERING hot and Renewed is no different. From the cover to the epilogue, I was drawn into the inevitable union of Tanya and Kenji. Also, Miller is reminding me of my affinity for Asian men. Kenji sounds.. delightful. And by delightful I mean DAMN HOT.
Wounded, hurt and confused by her husband’s betrayal, Tanya is a woman on the verge of divorce. When her husband moves out of the condo they share, but forgets his laptop, she decides to take a sneak peek and finds that he’s been frequenting a dating site for people who are open to the kinkier side of life. Now intrigued, Tanya wants to know… what do these people offer that I don’t? How can he hang out here but not talk to me about what he was missing?
Still curious, she opens an account, where she is approached by Kenji, who is polite and not at all dudebro about being brushed off a few times. Tanya lets her guard down and… well the rest is sexy, hot hot HOT… history. I love the eventual face to face meeting….and then the last-minute tryst… the story isn’t very long so I don’t want to give too much away. Just GET IT AND READ IT, IT’S AWESOME, OKAY?
Here’s what I like about this project. It’s a series of pieces– novelettes (not short stories, not novellas)– that all tie together but they’re not a continuing story. Each is its own Universe and gravitational pull. And there’s always an epilogue that takes you back to Miller’s site to get an exclusive follow-up of each couple. There you find info on the author and other good stuff. I love little goodies that tie back to something else. A good idea for this series!
ON TO THE NEXT ONE! Already ready for the next installment from KinkySingles.com.
