    For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You comes the third novel in the erotic, fast-paced trilogy including Release Me and Claim Me. This sexy, emotionally charged romance continues the story of Damien Stark, the powerful multimillionaire who's never had to take "no" for an answer, and Nikki Fairchild, the Southern belle who only says "yes" on her own terms.

    If you could sum up Complete Me (The Stark Trilogy) in three words, what would they be?

    Painful, Wonderful and Gripping


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story talked about a subject/ailment that I am completely unfamiliar with. The coping mechanism for the lead character for how she deals with stress and painful subjects is alien to me so I was intrigued.


    What about Sofia Willingham’s performance did you like?

    Ms. Willingham was able to transition the characters from one point to another without losing me so I always knew what was going on.
    Ms. Willingham did a great job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I felt mostly sadness for Nikki but Damien does in fact turn the story around in to something more happy even with his own issues.


    Any additional comments?

    I did very much enjoy the series even with the alien subject for how Nikki copes with stress/painful subjects. I was intrigued through out the book and did not want to put it down. Dare I say I loved the series?? Yes

    Jack and Lexi never had a typical relationship. After two years without speaking, she receives a phone call that changes everything. He unexpectedly asks her to convince the new girl, Bekah, that he's ready to commit. Jack is calling now after everything they had been through because there is another woman. She can't believe it. Follow Lexi in this heart wrenching drama as she relives her past relationship, or lack thereof, with Jack, and not just in her own mind, but to his fiancée-to-be. Throw in Bekah's hot brother who always seems to be in the right place at the right time, a past with more secrets to unravel than you can even imagine, and you get a recipe for disaster.

    What did you love best about Avoiding Commitment?

    I absolutely love this book. Spoiler alert, it doesn't end with your typical love conquers all scenario.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Avoiding Commitment?

    Everything was memorable. I read some of the reviews first which some were brutal. Me being the cynic that I am caused me to want to listen to the story myself to draw my own conclusion. I was actually capable of relating to this story in more ways than I can count. I absolutely loved this story. Not certain on if I'll like the 3 sequels that follow but this story was great.


    Have you listened to any of Greg Abbey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to Mr. Abbey before but his voice was captivating. I'm not really certain on what it is (Lie) but I love the sound of a mans voice reading to me even if the lead character is a woman. Especially if the voice has a very masculine tone.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed mostly plus I had a lot of OMG's, you go girl and shut the front door moments in the mix


    Any additional comments?

    If you're not always looking for the damsel in distress and gets rescued story then take a listen and draw your on conclusion.

    Drew Evans is handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed? He’ll tell you he has the flu. But we all know that’s not really true. Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin.

    If you could sum up Tangled in three words, what would they be?

    Hilarious and Mouth Watering


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tangled?

    The most note worthy moment to me is that Drew stepped out of his comfort zone to explore something new.


    What about Sebastian York’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Sebastian York is Fantastic!!! He captured the comedy and sensuality of the story perfectly.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I love that Drew changed his comfort zone to show Kate how he truly felt (Tear Jerker)


    Any additional comments?

    This book was so unbelievably amazing I don't even know where to begin. I was laughing uncontrollably and melting at the intimate moments. In my opinion the story is very well written. I was immediately drawn in after the first chapter. Could not and did not want to put it down. I have over looked this book a few times and I completely regret that decision now but happy I finally gave it a chance.

    Drew is completely swoon worthy and Kate is about as competitive and as strong as they get. Drew has finally met his match but not without some hilarious and mouth watering bumps in the road. I love that this book is from Drew's point of view. You don't see that very often with "romantic" stories. I don't even like defining this book as being romantic (even though it is) because I feel this story is so much more than that.

    Now I'm Anxious For The Second Book To Be Released.
    Did some homework to find that the second installment to this series "Twisted" will be released in March of 2014. The second book from my understanding will be from Kate's point of view. Not sure when it will be available for Audible but I will definitely keep my eyes and ears open for this one..
    MUAH!!!!

    Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate - and completely irresistible. A beautiful bastard. Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative - completely infuriating - creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The book was un-memorable


    Which character – as performed by Grace Grant – was your favorite?

    If I absolutely had to choose I would say that my favorite character is Chloe


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I had no problem taking breaks with this book.


    Any additional comments?

    The overall story for "Beautiful Bastard" is alright. I read other reviews where there was a plethora of people who loved the series so I decided to give it a shot. I've only listened to the first book from this series and decided that I wanted to change books immediately. Fortunately I found both "This Man" and "Gabriel's Inferno" which were definitely far more enchanting. At this time I'm not impressed at all by "Beautiful Bastard" but again I've only listened to the first book. I may change my mind once I finish the series but I don't have high expectations. At some point I'll listen to the rest of the series before I can give a more accurate review. I generally like to finish what I start no matter how painful. Right now I'm not anxious at all to see what will happen next with these characters.
    I wanted to like this book but I just couldn't get in to it.
    Sorry Folks....

    Enigmatic and sexy, Professor Gabriel Emerson is a well-respected Dante specialist by day, but by night he devotes himself to an uninhibited life of pleasure. He uses his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm to gratify his every whim, but is secretly tortured by his dark past and consumed by the profound belief that he is beyond all hope of redemption. When the sweet and innocent Julia Mitchell enrolls as his graduate student, his attraction and mysterious connection to her not only jeopardizes his career, but sends him on a journey in which his past and his present collide.

    What did you love best about Gabriel's Inferno?

    Excellent story in its entirety. Both of the lead characters are definitely tortured souls but eventually find peace within themselves as well as the supporting characters. The love scenes are not raunchy in any capacity but still gave me butterflies


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gabriel of course.. He is definitely the most tortured soul of them all but he changes into something wonderful especially once you get to the third book


    What does John Morgan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I was uncertain at first about having a male read this kind of book but honestly due to the way the book is written the male voice was perfect and very soothing. Mr. Morgan was spectacular


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I couldn't get enough of the story and Mr. Morgan's soothing voice so yes


    Any additional comments?

    So far I have completed multiple books that I have enjoyed. At this point my favorite books/stories have been the following sequels:
    50 Shades - By: E. L. James
    This Man - By: Jodi Ellen Malpas
    The Stark Trilogy - By: J. Kenner
    Gabriel's Inferno - By: Sylvain Reynard

    Each time I try a new book I have been both disappointed and impressed. The disappointing books are not listed above only the ones I loved. At this time I am now completely in love with Gabriel's Inferno which is "NOW" my absolute favorite of the 4 books listed above. I may change my mind once the third book for "This Man" is released but right now my comment stands.I love John Morgan's voice. I think he more than anything is the one who brought this story to life for me.
    LOVE IT..

    Jesse Ward drowned her with his intensity and blindsided her with his passion, but he kept her away from his dark secrets and broken soul. Leaving him was the only way Ava O'Shea could survive. She should have known that Jesse Ward is impossible to escape - and now he's back in her life, determined to remind her of the sensual pleasures they had shared. Ava is equally determined to get at the truth beneath this man's steely exterior. That means letting herself get close to the Lord of the Manor once more.

    If you could sum up Beneath This Man in three words, what would they be?

    Roller Coaster Ride


    What other book might you compare Beneath This Man to and why?

    This book series is a bit similar to "50 Shades" in the rich, obsessive and possessive playboy chasing the woman. The most noticeable difference is the lead female character from this book compared to the lead female from "50 Shades". The differences between the two women is that the lead female character from this book is older and way more independent. Ava tries to escape from the rich playboy but eventually gives in as he is quite overbearing without completely relinquishing who she is. I love strong women. I also love it when the strong woman sometimes allows a man to be a man. There are definitely enough differences between the two books to keep me interested and anxious to see what will happen next.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The most note worthy scene for me is after Jesse gets lashed in his office and Ava in her own way tries to show Jesse how what he did made her feel by enduring the same punishment intentionally. Again - "Good Girl"


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Crazy Love


    Any additional comments?

    I was extremely disappointed to find that the third book to this series is currently unavailable for Audio. I did some homework to find out that the third book "This Man Confessed" is going to be released for Audio in the United States on January 21st 2014.

    Young interior designer Ava O'Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward - a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries. Ava doesn't want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can't control the overwhelming desire that he stirs in her. She knows that her heart will never survive him and her instinct is telling her to run, but Jesse is not willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of This Man?

    Have you listened to any of Edita Brychta’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first book I've heard Ms. Brychta perform and I was absolutely hypnotized by her


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved the immediate spark between Ava and Jesse. In my opinion it was tastefully orchestrated which drew me in to the characters and kept me interested through out the story


    Any additional comments?

    I completed both Book 1 and Book 2 of this series within a week, I couldn't put it down. I am impatiently waiting for Book 3 to be released on Audible.... Book 2 ended with a shut the front door moment leaving me over anxious. I've been twiddling my thumbs and checking Audible daily to see if a release date has been set up yet but to my utter disappointment I am left with no signs for the release. Sigh... Still waiting

    What did you love best about Fifty Shades of Grey?

    I have not read a book for fun in almost 10 years. This is in part to my work schedule and what my occupation Intel's. After years of being too busy to read anything not related to work I chose this book to get back on the wagon. I obviously chose wisely. This book was absolutely addictive. I finished this book within a few days and started the second book by the end of the week. By the end of the second week I finished the second book then started the third book. This trilogy was a breath of fresh air which made me feel emotions and curiosity that I never thought that I could experience from a book. I still did not have time to actually read this book so I listened to it in Audio format so that I am still able to continue to do other things while I enjoyed this book. For the first time I am truly in LOVE with a book... (Smiley Face)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was definitely Christian Grey. I aspire to be more astute and driven like his character without the 50 shades of "Fu(expletive) Up"


    Have you listened to any of Becca Battoe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Again this was the first book I listened to in Audio. Becca Battoe was magnificent


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely.. The only reason I didn't was because I have a job to do
