Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Very good!"

    If you loved 50 shades of grey you will enjoy this book. I can't wait until the next book comes out. The narrator did a great job. I would even listen to it again.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    It is just very very slow and the narrator is very monotone

    CHANGE THE NARRATOR AND MOE SEX PLEASE


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    NO EXCITMENT


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    DISAPOINTMENT

    I am an avid "reader"- I prefer to listen to books rather than read them due to the added dimension added by the narrator.

    "OMG"

    Jeez... I thought the Crossfire series was hot. This certainly gave them a run for the money.
    The combination of the hot dialogue, fabulous narration by Sofia Willingham and numerous sexual fantasies and slightly kinky sex made for a very hot but enjoyable book. Other characters were also developed, and I was left wanting to listen to the other two books. Which I did. Wow.

    "Smart Girl - Bad Choices!"

    Here is a character, Nicky, who is an electrical engineer btw, who melts the instant some unbelievably (yes, another billionaire) wealthy, attractive man decides he wants her. OMG the "erotic" scenes weren't worth the long, rambling passages about how amazing Damian is, he's so wonderful that he is paying me $1M bucks to pose nude?! Please! Do not waste a credit on this one.

    "Just As Good As Fifty Shades"

    In this series we have lots of screwed up people. They shouldn't work together but they do. I like the way Kenner builds suspense & intrigue. I was always ready to make Damien the bad guy for all sorts of reasons, but you will have to listen to find out if he is. Nicki is so broken it's a wonder she functions at all.
    All the parents should be publicly horse whipped. I won't pull punches on my opinion of child abuse.
    The narration is excellent.

    "Too ridiculous for me."

    I did not read the rest of the series. The narrator was too breathy for me, and tried too hard to be a sex kitten for me. I found the story and dialogue to be ridiculous even more so than the genre's standard. Everything moved way to quickly- and that says a lot since I think the first 50 book happened in like two weeks. Not worth the credit or $'s.

    "Good, But Naughty"

    I downloaded all three series, and I did enjoy them, but I did find that they are similar to 50 shades, except, I think they got carried away with the sex, I do think they could have been more discrete with some of the sex scenes, I mean, I have never heard such vile word's, I don't think I will listen to them again, although the plot was good, the book could be revised into something with not so many sex scenes in it..

    "I was not expecting to like it as much as I did."
    Would you listen to Release Me again? Why?

    yes


    What other book might you compare Release Me to and why?

    CrossFire books. Flawed men who offer the world but need the woman more than she needs them... Yeah, it's the same kind of book. and I am a sucker for that.


    What about Sofia Willingham’s performance did you like?

    I liked her pacing and how she spoke I find many books I can't get into because of they way they are read.

    Story
    "LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!"
    What did you love best about Release Me?

    Whenever you have a dominant hero with an unmistakable attraction to a heroine, it's bound to be a good story. Now mix powerful emotions and troubled pasts, with hot passion, and it's a recipe for greatness! I've never recommended for someone to use a credit, but this book has brought me to do so!


    What other book might you compare Release Me to and why?

    A little bit of FSOG, but the plot and dialogue is better.


    What about Sofia Willingham’s performance did you like?

    Her ability to transform between voices without compromise.


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

    Yes! I stayed up all night listening to it.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the next installment.
