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.

    CHANGE THE NARRATOR AND MOE SEX PLEASE

    "Familiar"

    This book was very similar to the Crossfire series. I'm not sure which came first.

    Story
    "So....Fifty Shades"

    I can't tell you how many times I said "that was right from Fifty Shades of Grey" when I listened to this....to the point where it was really making me angry. In all honesty, I don't know who came first - I didn't check. But one of these authors and their editors - wow - can't believe someone didn't get in trouble because the stories are just way, way, way too similar. So not that the story is bad so much as it is not original and the amount of similarity is seriously not cool.

    "Kinda like 50 shades - but not"

    Not very original, not very sexy, and way too much use of the f- word. I will not read any more of the series. Lucky I got this in a sale.

    "Seriously!"

    I could almost heat the bad porn music in the background. I dislike getting a book only to find out that there's absolutely no depth.

    "Skip this one"

    Breathy, shallow narration of a watered down 50 shades. The last one was better. Have seen better reviews of book 4, so I'll give it a try, but definitely recommend skipping this one

    "Story only "ok"... Narration was boring."

    Storyline was good but I did not care for the terms the author chose to use for sex scenes. The terms were a little brash and not sexy in my book. The narrator was also a bit boring… Due to this I will not be listening to the next books in the series.

    Story
    "Disasterous!!"
    Would you try another book from J. Kenner and/or Sofia Willingham?

    I would probably try another book with a completely different storyline. It was too familiar to other great love stories that have a better spin on them such as FSOG & The Crossfire Series. Those books were brought to life by the narrator. This book died by narration it just was not done effectively by the narrator or the storyline. I don't know what it is but I know for a fact this was not it. I have tried to get through book one but it wasn't working for me.


    What could J. Kenner have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Try a new storyline or find a better narrator, it's definitely missing something.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sofia Willingham’s performances?

    Yes I would be willing to try something different in the future but as for now I'm returning book 1 & 2. I purchased both because of such rave reviews but I will proceed with more caution in the future.

    "Not what I expected"

    I listened twice and still didn't like it. Not very much emotion in the reader. I probably won't buy anymore of the series.
