Say something about yourself!
I have listened to it 3 times already, and will probably listen to it several more times. I can't wait for the next one!! We all have a past, but to find someone to make it through ours ghosts with us is a great story to me.
Yes I listened to this in one day, I didn't want to turn it off!
This is definitely worth a Credit!
This was a good weekend listen held my attention. Writing was in the same style of 50 shades and i will definitely listen to the next book
Release Me was a good book, very similar to the Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day (I didn't listen to 50 Shades) but it seemed almost like I was listening to the same book.
The narrator is the most important part of the audiobook experience, and Sofia the narrator is the only reason I didn't offer more stars
It drags and is juvenile in it's language.
A little more depth in the characters would be nice.
on the fence
I did not enjoy this book at all i just felt that it was a spinoff of all the other books that I have read. the narration was just ok.
Here is a character, Nicky, who is an electrical engineer btw, who melts the instant some unbelievably (yes, another billionaire) wealthy, attractive man decides he wants her. OMG the "erotic" scenes weren't worth the long, rambling passages about how amazing Damian is, he's so wonderful that he is paying me $1M bucks to pose nude?! Please! Do not waste a credit on this one.
In this series we have lots of screwed up people. They shouldn't work together but they do. I like the way Kenner builds suspense & intrigue. I was always ready to make Damien the bad guy for all sorts of reasons, but you will have to listen to find out if he is. Nicki is so broken it's a wonder she functions at all.
All the parents should be publicly horse whipped. I won't pull punches on my opinion of child abuse.
The narration is excellent.
Damien and Nikki or awesome in this story. I look forward to the 2nd book on audible.
Nikki's strength and her weakness and being able to stand on her on and the love she has for Damien and being able to trust him.
When Nikki cut her hair and make a cut on her arm. And when Damien came after her roommate called him.
Abibliophobia. I suffer from it and I'm sure many others on this site feel the same. I love to read, I love to listen even more.
This was time well spent, as it was written in first person present tense, you get the feel that the story is happening in the moment. The voice was calm and relaxing (airy even) and it kept me going through the audiobook.
“Do you know what passion is?” I blink, confused. “Most people think it only means desire. Arousal. Wild abandon. But that’s not all. The word derives from the Latin. It means suffering. Submission. Pain and pleasure, Nikki. Passion.”
Her voice is soft and she conveys the spirit of Nikki very well. I wish Damion's voice was a bit deeper however, but over all it was enjoyable. It took me sometime to get used to the slow pace at which she reads, but it works because she's trying to bring the emotion out to the reader in real time as it happens.
No not really, but I would like to see Nikki's software program in the real world. It's a cool idea.
The hero and heroine do seem to lack some sizzle compared to other couples from other stories I've read. I have only read the first book mind you, but I just wish that they connected more. I don't know if it's the way it was read or the way they were written together, but there is a bit of a disconnect. Perhaps they will flourish as they story progresses in the following books. Order I read: Fifty Shades, Crossfire, StarkOrder I rate: Crossfire, Fifty Shades, StarkThe plot of this books seems interesting but not as interesting as the others. It is well written and very descriptive. Crossfire is more descriptive than all the others, thus the reason it is number one to me. I don't feel compelled to keep reading the next installment to the Stark series like I was with the other series of books... but that doesn't mean I won't. If you have a credit get the other mentioned series instead. If you already have them, than go on ahead and use the credit for this one. Hope this helps.
Sofia Willingham is the best female narrator I have ever experienced on Audible. The sound of her voice is extremely pleasant to listen to, is very seductive, and she has the skills to make the different characters come alive. I would listen to anything she narrates.
The Stark Trilogy is an engaging trio of novels, like long chapters of the same book. You are easily drawn into the characters as voiced by Ms. Willingham, and you are totally seduced by the plot and the hidden secrets that are yet to be revealed. The sex is HOT and steamy, and easily put 50 Shades of Gray to shame by comparison. After the first novel, I felt invested in the fate of these characters and wanted more. The plot has some definite surprises I didn't see coming. It keeps things interesting.
I definitely recommend this series.
any of the hot, steamy sex scenes
everything. She has the best narrative voice I've ever listened to.
