Release Me (The Stark Trilogy): The Stark Series #1 | [J. Kenner]

Release Me (The Stark Trilogy): The Stark Series #1

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.

    "Just OK"
    Would you try another book from J. Kenner and/or Sofia Willingham?

    Yes, if it was discounted or free.
    I am not on the edge of my seat or scrambling to buy it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked all the Blue-Collar workers in the book. LOL They were the only down to earth believable people in the story.


    What aspect of Sofia Willingham’s performance would you have changed?

    She almost whispered too much! Kinda annoying.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Possibly


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Loved this book! Well worth the credit!!"

    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!

    "LOVE STARK!!!!!!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Similar but different than 50 Shades, good storylines, strong interesting characters and great sex scenes.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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!!!!!


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

    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.....


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

    There is humor, more than sadness. There is a disturbing storyline that makes you feel sorry for Nikki, but she is a fighter.


    Any additional comments?

    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.


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

    Yes, couldn't put it away.

    "Narrator Sucks"
    What didn’t you like about Sofia Willingham’s performance?

    Oh my I could not get into the story due to the narrators horrible whispering voice. Seriously why is the netire book being whispered? That just didnt do it for me so that is why I couldn't sync with the characters or the story line.


    Any additional comments?

    So I read the novel vs listening and I loved this story and I can't wait for the 3rd novel to be realeased complete me. This just wasn't a story I could get into by listening to it.

    What made the experience of listening to Release Me the most enjoyable?

    An incredibly sexy story that actually has a well written story with so much sex that I practically became breathless while listening.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't adequately describe the sensuality of the book. Anyone who enjoys this genre will love this book.

    "I Couldn't stop listening!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Release Me the most enjoyable?

    The Characters captured my heart.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Release Me?

    There were to many to just choose one.


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

    This is the first book I have listened to of Sofia Willingham. I loved her voice. Her performance was right on. I plan to see what else she has done and listen to it as well.


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

    There were two moments that really moved me. One was when Damien learned of her scares and when she cut her self and her hair at the end of the book.

    Any additional comments?

    It was one hell of a roller coaster ride of emotions and sexual heat. The narrator was great with her reading and character voicing. The story, its build up, down to the ending kept me intrigued the whole time.
