Audie Award Finalist, Erotica, 2014
For fans of Fifty Shades of Gray and Bared to You comes an erotic, emotionally charged romance between a powerful man who’s never heard "no" and a fiery woman who says "yes" on her own terms.
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.
Release Me is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Long commutes=LOTS of listening. Thanks Audbile!
It made my long commute to work a little less boring
I did not like the narrator. Her voice is horrible and her mouth sounded dry.
Her voice is horrible and her mouth sounded dry.
I loved this book. It is the first book I have listened to by this author and was sucked in by the reviews saying it was like 50 Shades or Bared to You. Is is very,very good and has its own twists and spins. I guess I am a sucker for this kind of story. Who does not like steamy sex scenes and an intense hot guy. The one thing I liked is the connection between Damien and Nikki and the tension is awesome. The anticipation is sooooo good. This is a definite must read. The characters are strong, seductive and hot! I listened to the books back to back and can't wait to start the third book. Put this on your must have list:)
It was a steamy good time. I enjoy the winding love story and the kink. I enjoyed the flow of the story and the characters.I was sad that story ended and then found myself pleasantly surprised when found a second book. Can't wait for the third. I miss the passionate romance and the twist and turns.
Damien Stark, because beneath power are secrets that make him real and touchable.
It's hard to choose one character Sofia performed well. Because all of them were performed exceptionally well.
A moving moment for me; was when Nikki realized her love for Damien was stronger than the demons that she faced.
Sofia is a fantastic narrator! My favorite by far.
This book received such rave reviews I wanted to will myself to love it just as much, I really really tried, but i just didn't--and that was a bummer, because it WAS good, just not great. The narrator was decent, but I've heard better. She sounded a bit like the narrator from FSOG. To be honest however, I am intrigued enough by the characters to get the second book but not immediately and definitely not with a credit...perhaps a sale. There are numerous similarities to FSOG and Bared to You, both of which I LOVED, but there's something that I can't quite identify about this book, that just simply didn't resonate for me.
I am in love with pararomance and am always trying to find new series with a great story and sizzling hot spots!
If the friend is into FSOG, then yes.
Eh, it was alright.
I honestly can't decide if I like her or not. She wasn't terrible... but the parts where she needed to be more intense, she wasn't I feel.
Not really, I mean... I kind of felt it was lacking. I am so used to the love scenes being a bit "more". There was one part where I was sure Damien was going to screw her over... and I kind of hated him... but I am guessing that was the point! It was pretty predictable. I do have to say the limo scene was my favorite. I am considering listening to the second one, I am definitely not really swayed either way.
Reading is my favorite past time.
The narration on this story wasn't very good the pacing was just really slow and it made the story boring. I found that i listed to the whole story on a high speed just to not have to hear how slowly she as reading. The story is not as good as FSOG but it was ok. I want to listen to the whole trilogy just to comeplete it since I have heard this one. However, I would not listen to this again.
This was an ok book I just really didn't enjoy it as much as I would have hoped. I know for me the narration played a part in that.
Yes, if it was discounted or free.
I am not on the edge of my seat or scrambling to buy it!
I liked all the Blue-Collar workers in the book. LOL They were the only down to earth believable people in the story.
She almost whispered too much! Kinda annoying.
I would not use a credit to get the 2nd book in the series. I may buy it if it was $5.99 or less, just to see what happens to Nikki and Damien.
This book is similar to 50 Shades of Grey and the Crossfire series. If you liked either of those you will like this one as well. The relationship between Damion and Nikki is hot and I loved the story. Great series!
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
Yes. Similar but different than 50 Shades, good storylines, strong interesting characters and great sex scenes.
Being female it is going to have to be Damien...rough but soft, harsh but loving, business-like but caring and loves kinky fu@#$%ery!!!!!
In the beginning I was not pleased with the narration....it takes getting used to, it grows on you and I think there is a purpose for the way she is reading.....
There is humor, more than sadness. There is a disturbing storyline that makes you feel sorry for Nikki, but she is a fighter.
I could not put this down and only stopped when I fell asleep but quickly began listening again first thing the next morning. I cannot wait to listen to #2 but I have to have a cool down before I begin it. I notice that #3 is not listed in Audible....I don't know whether if it's not been written or performed yet but I hope Audible picks it up soon.
I loved nikki and damien relationship and all their secret struggles.
Damien because of all he has been through he is still so strong and his protection of nikki. Plus the tenderness and patience he has for nikki. Her knight in shining armour.
How well she can change her voice for each differnt character.
Yes, couldn't put it away.
Let us known as soon as Complete Me is available. Amazon will have it July 30, 2013.
