Release Me (The Stark Trilogy) | [J. Kenner]

Release Me (The Stark Trilogy)

He was the one man I couldn’t avoid. And the one man I couldn’t resist. Damien Stark could have his way with any woman. He was sexy, confident, and commanding: Anything he wanted, he got. And what he wanted was me. Our attraction was unmistakable, almost beyond control, but as much as I ached to be his, I feared the pressures of his demands. Submitting to Damien meant I had to bare the darkest truth about my past - and risk breaking us apart. But Damien was haunted, too. And as our passion came to obsess us both, his secrets threatened to destroy him - and us - forever.

    "Very good!!! waiting for the 2nd book..."

    This was an interesting story. I enjoyed it looking forward to the follow up book. Narrator wasn't bad but could be better with the different character voices

    Story
    "SHE WAS JUST AN INNOCENT MOTH TO HIS RED HOT FLAME"

    I thought I'd just download the first book and see how the story went but halfway into this I downloaded all the rest in the series and what a joy it was to be able to listen to the entire series in one go.

    Damien is rich, uber handsome, successful, sexy, charismatic and is used to getting his own way but he's haunted by his dark past and has more secrets than cars!! But as soon as his and Nikki's eyes meet the world fades away and so starts an incredibly needy, obsessive, erotic and romantic love story. A full cast of secondary characters who find themselves involved, one way or another, in the lover's lives. Damien makes Nikki an offer that she can't refuse but she is hiding deep emotional and physical scars of her own and is desperate to keep her independence but her world is about to be changed forever when someone betrays them.

    Worth a credit? It was enjoyable, entertaining, emotional, romantic and very very hot with a dialogue to match and I know there's going to be a lot more drama before these two tortured souls get to see a HEA.... so YEAH, IMHO, very creditworthy.

    Story
    "Ugh!"

    I love a steamy scene as much as the next girl but sometimes its just overkill and ends up just being a bore. From the car to the hallway to the bedroom to the shower to the back patio to grandma's house...ok, not grandma's house but if there was a grandma in this story then they would have had sex there as well. And when I say story, I mean what story? I still don't even know what this is about. A couple with issues, "no sir" and "yes sir", blah, blah, blah. The end. Obviously, I'd have to buy the next 2 parts to get to the point but there isn't much about this first part that makes me want to spend the money on 2 more parts. Sorry!!

    Story
    "Use Anything you got to listen to this book"
    Would you listen to Release Me (The Stark Trilogy) again? Why?

    Yes, and plan on it. This book has an excellent story line and it's Hot and that makes for a great book. These two messed up people deserve each other. At the beginning, it takes a while to get started, but once they see one another, hold one.. it moves fast.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Damien and Nickie


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

    Nope, this is my first, she does Romance really good


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

    NO extreme reaction, just to say, it was good


    Any additional comments?

    Like everyone else, if you like our FSOG, Bated to You, this will be another one that has all of these two great books. It was great to listen to. Glad friends told to get this.. I am starting book two now. And three is ready to go when I finish. Such a great story and listen.. Hope I can find more like these.

    Story
    "This Was Good But Found Myself Drifting At Times"
    What made the experience of listening to Release Me (The Stark Trilogy) the most enjoyable?

    This is compared to 50 Shades Trilogy (which I've not read) and Bared to You - which I really liked. Maybe I'm burned out on the premise of Billionare and broken pasts or maybe it is a lazy time of year (summer vacation) but I did find my thoughts wandering at times.

    The above being said - I cannot wait to find out what the rest of the trilogy holds!

    He was the one man I couldn’t avoid. And the one man I couldn’t resist.

    Damien Stark could have his way with any woman. He was sexy, confident, and commanding: Anything he wanted, he got. And what he wanted was me.

    Our attraction was unmistakable, almost beyond control, but as much as I ached to be his, I feared the pressures of his demands. Submitting to Damien meant I had to bare the darkest truth about my past - and risk breaking us apart.

    But Damien was haunted, too. And as our passion came to obsess us both, his secrets threatened to destroy him - and us - forever.

    What about Sofia Willingham’s performance did you like?

    She is good, believable and unique.


    Any additional comments?

    I AM intrigued, enjoyed and HAVE downloaded the rest of the trilogy.

    If you like erotica with a bit of bondage - billionaire, girl and how they work through their issues; I think you'll like this. It is similar to Beautiful B*stard, Bared to You/Crossfire Series, Breathless,etc.

    If you are ready for a different/new topic you might want to try The Brown Family (Lauren Dane), Blacktop Cowboys (Lorelei James) or Sinners on Tour (Olivia Cunning)...

    This is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

    "Good story ...alot of EROTIC ! Be preparred."

    This book was good , maybe too much explicit sex that went on and on. But over all it kept me wondering and waiting. I think the whole Damien "secret" kept me going and I still didn't know by the end. On to book 2.....

    Story
    "Cutting + Bad Characters = Boring"

    It has been a few weeks since I listened to this story and this what I remember:

    a) the main character's "big conflict" is that she cut herself.
    b) the guy was rich and wanted to buy her
    c) they probably had a bunch of sex, none of which was particularly memorable

    I will admit to liking a dirty story from time to time, but this was so light on substance I just couldn't get into it.
