The stark Trilogy three books in one less. Shaly Unfortunately there isn't. The book reads like one long monologue, entirely one sided, only from the Nikki's POV.
I would say read at your own peril, …more Unfortunately there isn't.
I would say read at your own peril, many readers loved it, some liked it and others, like me, didn't care too much for it. Hope this helps.. See all 4 questions about Release Me…. Lists with This Book. Community Reviews. Showing Rating details. Sort order. Jan 12, Dd rated it really liked it. Do you know what passion is? Most people think it only means desire. Wild abandon.
But that's not all The word derives from the Latin. It means suffering. Pain and pleasure,Nikki. I want to let the fire that's spreading over my body grow. Maybe it will consume me. Maybe,like a phoenix,I will rise again after being incinerated by Damien Stark's touch. Well,let me tell you at first that this was the first fifty-shade alike novel which I liked. So,I recommend this to lovers of Fifty Shades. And now, for those who hate Fifty Shades I also recommend this to you. Damien Stark's quite sane!
You need not worry. Okay,so let me introduce Damien Stark to you I'm trying!! Have patience!! Let me tell you that it's not easy to find a man with these characteristics Instead it looks wind tossed,as if he's spent the day at sea.
See what I mean?? Nikki Fairchild is brilliant and ambitious. She has worked hard to get rid of her past demons. Though some scars stay forever.
Presently,she is the secretary of Carl who owns C-Squared Technologies. Now,in a party,she has to attract the attention of one man for Carl. But unbeknownst to her and Carl,she already has his attention Was the question unclear? I asked if you were fucking Carl Rosenfeld. Damien Stark Once one of the best tennis players of the world,he is now a business tycoon. That's not in his vocabulary. He gets what he wants. And what he wants is I'm caged in,trapped in Damien's heat.
This isn't just heat,it's a goddamned conflagration. Not chemistry,but nuclear fission. He too has his own demons. Now,will these secrets,blow them apart or even closer to each other? Read this to find that out! Between us,the sun is never going down.
Readers,please pay attention!! This book is very costly. So,if you are looking for hardcore BDSM,you won't find that here. But it's definitely hot. Also the story is good,but there are no major twists which will make you scream or blow your head off. And sometimes,the plot is a bit silly. But no major cliffhanger,that's a respite. Overall 3. Hope it helps. That's all for now. View all comments. Dec 01, Debra rated it really liked it Shelves: So, there's a new sexy billionaire in town, And his name is, Damien Stark He is Jason and Hercules and Perseus - a figure so strong and beautiful and heroic that the blood of the gods must flow through him, because how else could a being so fine exist in this world?
You know the type, right?? And what he wants now is no one other than the lovely Miss Nikki Fairchild, When they first meet there's an immediate attraction between them and they both know it , so I thought: Oh this is going to be one of those stories, you know - Right???
Turns out, Nikki has some dark secrets in her past and she's not quite ready for Damien to find out all the ugly scars she's been hiding So there's a lot of touching and teasing And Damien saying: We're going to blow the roof off pleasure.
I'm going to make you beg for it. I'm going to claim you. I'm going to tease you. I'm going to torment you. And you're going to come for me like you've never come in your life. And then, he makes her an offer you'd think she can't refuse Let me show you how far I can take you.
Can she thrust this man and his overpowering words??? Or will she be let down by her expectations in life once again Well now, that is for you to find out I know it gets compared to FSoG and the Crossfire Series a lot, but I actually found it to be quite different from those series.
Release Me is not just another knock-off, there's actually much more to the story than just the "sexy rich guy that tries to seduce some sweet, innocent girl and gets away with it". The characters each have a very strong and fascinating personality and the writing style of J. Kenner gives this story its own unique vibe. There were a few inconsistencies in the storyline here and there, but they didn't really bother me that much after all. As for the sex scenes; well, they were VERY hot and a little bit kinky but there really wasn't that much BDSM involved as you might think, based on the genre it's categorized under.
Overall, I really enjoyed reading this story and I was also very relieved that there weren't any terrible cliffhangers at the end of this first part Definitely looking forward to the rest of the Stark Trilogy!!! And to more Damien of course View all 83 comments. The deep parts are well hidden and what you do see is hard and a little bit cold.
Read this quote, you'll know enough: D His mouth is at my ear, his voice so carnal, so full of lust, it makes my clit throb. D I see these comparisons with 50 Shades, but I guess I'm lucky because I haven't read those books and have nothing like them to compare this to. Here are just my jumbled thoughts on the book So, Nikki is at a party, something like an art exibition, with a goal of finding a business partner for her new boss. Of course, the most desirable man for that position is Damien Stark, a gazillionaire, ex-tennis player and a successful businessman.
The moment they see each other sparks fly all around, there is an attraction that Nikki wants to avoid, but Damien doesn't: D Aaaaaaaand here comes the real story: Damien wants to have a painting done for his house, and he wants Nikki to be the model. He offers her one million dollars for one week while the painting is being done, and in that time he will completely own her.
I'm OK with that, as long as it doesn't spread to her personal life, dictating who she sees and what she does: D So anyway, she accepts even though she'd never done a kinky thing in her life, and doesn't date anymore, but I guess Damien's attraction is enormous: D Or maybe it's something else that's enormous She doesn't date very much bad experiences , isn't into kink, but jumps right into the ownership without knowing Damian at all.
I think it was the second or third day that they agreed on this. I mean I don't know if I'd accept a deal like that, but damn, I'd sure have to know the guy VERY much if I'd accept to be his sex slave for a week, and of course I'd educate myself a bit on what that would entail, which she basically knows nothing about.
Don't read this if you plan to read the book, it's a big spoiler view spoiler [Damien sponsored a pagent way back when Nikki was only 18 I think, and they met for like a minute or two, but after that he basically stalked her life and decided he wants her the minute he saw her on the party.
At all. There are some hot sexy scenes here and I could tell he likes to dominate and order around, but the overall feeling is that they just did some kinky things cause they liked it. I didn't get the feeling that Nikki was a sub, nope. She liked being tied up, I get that, and Damien is basically a God in bed, so yeah. She likes the kinky: D And some spanking: Not here.
At least I just didn't get that feeling at all. But it's fine by me, I like reading about kinky sex, and it was pretty hot here: The style of writing was very good, even though I hate to say it but some things were just over the top for me. Some of the descriptions D I don't know. I get that he's supposed to be the hottest and the most amazing man ever to live on the face of the Earth, but still I just love him. And utterly. And it's like the hero in this book really was written based on Tony.
Except for the beard: D But he had a beard in my head so it's OK: DDD Anyway, here's something you need to know about Damien. He's a billionaire. Barely thirty and an ex-tennis champion.
He had a dark history that isn't really revealed in this book, but I sense it's pretty bad.
He acts like he's forty instead of thirty, but hey, even the heroine noticed that he acts more mature for his age. So OK well done here, even though I like my heroes a bit older: D He doesn't talk like a tennis player.
I don't know how tennis players really talk, but I'd say they talk like normal people. He's a billionaire business man now, but he wasn't until a few years ago. I get that he has to be good with his words, but I think the author should have invented something else in his past instead of tennis. Just my opinion: D Moving on The man likes to dominate in the bedroom.
He likes to have kinky sex, and he's damn hot! So yeah, I loved him even with all the inconsistencies: They both have masks and don't let anyone see them vulnerable. So, something you need to know about Nikki She used to hurt herself. Cut herself to be precise. She's had a lot of traumas back then and it was a way for her to cope. I get that.
I thought maybe she was into pain, you know, if it makes her focused on reality or something, but no. She likes the kinky sex she has with Damien, and I understand her, poor woman, of course she would: D She's not very understanding as a character and in almost every tricky situation she manages to form a totally wrong conclusion and fight with whoever she thinks did something wrong.
Mostly Damien: D Poor guy: D One more thing, and I couldn't stop laughing at this one: DDD Don't read it if you plan to read the book, it's a big spoiler! Does that mean all Doms were victims of child abuse? People have certain things that turn them on, whether it be control or the lack of it. This was just too stupid, but I think her brilliant conclusion must be a right one, unfortunately.
No comment on that one. Even with all these things I mentioned, I really enjoyed the book: D I didn't get on my nerves, but I just had to say the stuff I noticed about it, so they aren't really THAT bad because the book is really good. I read somewhere that this book has a cliffhanger.
It doesn't. Just so you know, don't feel apprehensive if that's what worries you. Everything isn't settled because there will be two more books, but it's a really nice happy end: Hope you'll give it a shot: View all 99 comments. They only met briefly once 6 years ago, then again at a swanky party in LA California.
They immediately start circling and sniffing each other like dogs in heat, spewi DNF. They immediately start circling and sniffing each other like dogs in heat, spewing pithy and cliche comments at each and exchanging heated glares from across the room. We get a few glimpses into their past, and you can see the groundwork being set up that tells us both Damian and Nikki have dark and damaged pasts.
And they are both jealous types, the claws are already coming out. But wait Remember, this is a Fifty Shades knock-off. So Damian wants Nikki to call him 'sir' and take commands from him. He loves the fact that she wore painful shoes, cause it means she can handle some pain.
Nikki's inner dialogue reminded me so much of the Fifty series, with a lot of "Oh, my! So this is where I exit stage left.
I can't read anymore of this. The dialogue was cheesy and the plot border-lined on absurd. Didn't work for me. ARC copy provided by the publisher through Netgalley View all 20 comments. This is another one of those books that will inevitably be compared to Fifty Shades and the Crossfire books which is really going to deter as many readers as it attracts but, in my opinion at least, this is a really good one, even if it is very similar.
Our tortured bazillionaire is Damien Stark, a former professional tennis player who has invested his very successful career winnings into industry and made a not-so-small fortune. The object of his obsessive desire is Nikki Fairchild, a former pageant queen and science graduate from Texas who is now trying to make her way in Los Angeles.
They meet at a party and their mutual attraction is instant and raw and primal. Damien is edgy, dangerous and intense, has odd eyes full of dark promise and is like a raven-haired God and Nikki is instantly mesmerised by his self-assured presence. She rails against him, fights her desire and their path is and was always going to be a tortured one.
They both have some skeletons in their closets which cast lengthy shadows over their lives today. Nikki eventually opens up and bares her soul to Damien, confessing everything that has hurt her but Damien is much more of a closed book, keeping everything close to his chest.
They share some pretty intensely sensual scenes and these are fabulously written with an anticipation that builds and certainly hits all the right buttons. There's no real cliffhanger here but much is left unresolved and I feel sure that there will be sequels and there's a host of interesting secondary characters to flesh out the story, some nice and some really unpleasant.
It's compelling, engaging and I was thoroughly engrossed. View all 37 comments. I know a lot of readers have commented on it being a lot like FSOG which I have read and loved…… https: I suppose there are a few similarities between this book and FSOG — the controlling and sexy billionaire who becomes obsessed with gorgeous and damaged woman, etc…but the one big difference is the writing.
So much better written. The writing style just makes the story flow so well. Then there are the characters, which I found much more real and endearing. In the beginning, I had a few doubts about him.
But then, I began to see that beneath all that was a man, filled with dark secrets and controlling issues, but still retaining a sense of caring.
He can destroy his enemies but he does help and give to those he cares about. What I liked about her was the strength she displayed in dealing with her problems.
It's true I could get used to that kind of life!!!!!!!!!! There are some interesting secondary characters and I would love to know more about Jenna and Ollie….
The sex scenes were very well-written with more sexy kinky bondage rather than heavy BDSM which I am not a great fan of. Their story is filled with passion and sensuality. But what I loved the most was that it was a love story about two people who fall in love and help each other with facing their demons and dealing with them together.

Now 6 years later her chance at seeing him again is at her fingertips. I'm being taken back to the moment when they first lay their eyes on each other again!!!
That first moment where Damien and Nikki eyes connect and the electric chemistry that happens between them is incredible. Yeah he totally freaked and gave Nikki the cold shoulder and I was I fell head over heels in love!!!

She wants Damien badly but all her instincts are telling her that giving her heart to this man would be a mistake. Toon meer Toon minder.
