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.
"Our desire runs deep. But our secrets cut close.
"Beautiful, strong, and commanding, Damien Stark fills a void in me that no other man can touch. His fierce cravings push me beyond the brink of bliss - and unleash a wild passion that utterly consumes us both.
"Yet beneath his need for dominance, he carries the wounds of a painful past. Haunted by a legacy of dark secrets and broken trust, he seeks release in our shared ecstasy, the heat between us burning stronger each day.
"Our attraction is undeniable, our obsession inevitable. Yet not even Damien can run from his ghosts, or shield us from the dangers yet to come."
Complete Me is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
Complete Me is the final book of the Stark Trilogy. Damien Stark the rich, refined multimillionaire who uses control and dominance to preserve his façade of normalcy. While inside he is deeply wounded from childhood sexual abuse. Nikki Fairchild his love interest is a southern pageant girl who has moved to LA to start her new chapter in her life. But Nikki has dark secrets herself. She is broken & insecure. Complete Me starts off where Claim Me left off. I strongly recommend you read the previous two books first. This series has been compared to the Crossfire Series & Fifty Shades of Grey and it does follow a similar style and characterizations. Damien and Nicki's relationship throughout the book is as intense and sexual as in the first two novels. I’d actually say the sex was hotter in this book than in the first two of the trilogy. The story picks up right before Damien's trial, and we are immediately returned to the dynamics of Damien and Nikki's relationship. Nikki has completely opened up, but now we must wait and see if Damien will finally reveal all of his secrets as well. I found parts of this book predictable but still a page turner. Overall, I would say this is a must read. The ending was truly my favorite; it was very passionate and perfect.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
I read all the reviews and I must admit I was a little hesitant to pick up this third and final installment of the Stark trilogy. Despite the slow start (and too many sex scenes) I still really enjoyed this book. It was the perfect ending to a fantastic and erotica series. Although this isn't as good as book 1 and 2 it still held my interest and I highly recommend it to fans of Damien Stark. I'm happy that J. Kenner didn't drag this series out and beat it like a dead horse....
As always, Sofia Willingham is superb as the narrator. Overall it's 4 stars for this book and 5 stars for the series as a whole.
I nearly feel sorry for Damien--his women are definitely a handful. A psycho ex and Nikki is a pain seeking ex cutter. I'm not sure this would be a great series for a woman who needs pain to cope--I'm not sure that it might not glamorize it and I do not think there is probably anything glamorous about it. That all being said, I really like the Damien/Nikki story. They complement each other and make two broken people stronger together.
Top 5 series for me.
Wow, what a great way to end this series. I love this final book. So many twists and turns packed in this book. I enjoyed listening to it. Ms. Kenner did not disappoint me with this final installment. I love Damien and Nikki. Somehow, the way they were with each other worked. I love how much they needed each other. I got to say that I did not see the final twist toward the end of the book but it was awesome and surprised me. I highly recommend this series. It's very well written. Definitely worth a credit.
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
I really enjoyed book 1 & 2 and was excited to listen to book 3. This book was my least favorite of the series. While the sex scenes were amazing like the first 2 books I felt like the majority of the book was sex with little plot thrown in. I found myself forwarding through the sex scenes quite often waiting for the book to pull me to the end of my seat but it just never got there for me.
I'm definitely glad to have made this purchase and will most likely re-listen to the book at some point but this definitely was not my favorite and left me wanting more substance.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Well I can surely say this one is loaded with sex. I've enjoyed the sexual relationship between Damien and Nikki in this book and the previous two books. So as far as my expectations of that I was not disappointed. In saying that, I will have to say I'm a little let down in the story. I just wish there was more story and a little less sex. (I know, I know, it is so hot between them.) I just wanted more drama or excitement in their life. So for that reason I can only give it 4 stars. It is definately worth the credit, especially if your a fan of the series. This is not a stand alone book, so if you haven't gotten the first two I'd advise you to get those then this one.
I am an avid "reader"- I prefer to listen to books rather than read them due to the added dimension added by the narrator.
This installment in the trilogy brings mystery, whodunnit factors, and a lot of hot sex.
I didn't think I could find a series as "stimulating" as the Crossfire series but wow... this outdid it in my opinion. The ending is satisfying though there is some heartbreak thrown in for good measure. Not spoiling it.
The narrator was fine, but by the time I got through the 3rd book, I was tired of hearing her because of the sexual content.
In the whole series, there were probably four interesting scenarios. The rest was just gratuitous sex.
This series should have been done in one book, not 3. I certainly don't have an aversion to sexual content, but this bordered on the ridiculous. I only read them through because I had paid good money and could do other things while listening. In the future I will listen to one book first before buying all in a series. I would not recommend this series to anyone.
a better story line
Nikki is a recovering cutter, so am I and thats what drew me to this series in the begining. I continued to listen to the rest of the books waiting to hear the strength that Nikki should have shown and never gound it. She instead continued to be a VICTIM of her own fears. J. Kenner could have made her more of a fighter and an example to women because in my opinion she wasnt.
as long as she is not confusing whispering with what should be a sexy voice
i get that Nikki had a bad childhood but WTF must she relate EVERYTHING that she goes through in life to her childhood. No one said that life was supposed to be easy and isnt part of her recovery supposed to be her learning how to cope in healthier ways? I guess I just cant deal with women that love to play the "I'm a victim of my circumstances and to weak to deal with it" role. I am a strong woman that has lived through a lot worse than being forces by my mommy to participate in pagents and I have come out on the other side STRONGER and ready to FIGHT no matter what comes at me. and that is the kind of character that want to relate to.
I feel like this should have been limited to one book. There isn't enough substance to take it as far as a trilogy. I'm really struggling to finish. I feel like there are sex scenes more than plot. It seems like the sex scenes are just stretching the story out longer and truthfully I'm not impressed with them. There is something to be said about minimizing the sex scenes to make them have more impact and meaning.
The first book was ok but now I'm just bored and ready to be done. Truthfully, I'm not sure if I'm going to finish or just fast forward through the scenes and Nicki is getting on my last nerve.
