Release Me: The Stark Series #1 is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 21.
For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You comes an 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good read Good story, really like how the authors writing flows so easy you can't help but get caught up. But I really don't like sequels and wouldn't have read this book if I had know it was before the half way mark of the book. I just find that the characters get repetitive and the storyline starts to lack its luster more often than not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love The story line is great packed with plenty of twist and turns to make your head spin. The characters are awesome and how can you not fall in love with Damien. It leaves you wanting more and she doesn?t disappoint with the rest of the trilogy. Enjoy sexy readers !!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good Summer Read I like a bit of plot with my romantic erotica so this book was good for that. The characters are intelligent and thoughtful. Of course it is steamy. I would recommend this one to people who like romance novels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Release Me I love the characters with all the flaws and imperfections. It's an emotional roller coaster ride of the delicious kind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RELEASE ME release me (the stark trilogy) has much more zing than fifty shades and that's a lot for me to say as I've read fifty shades 5 times. Damien stark is someone I would even submit too and I'm not even a submissive. must read and can't wait for anymore reads from j kenner.

Read from the Book

1A cool ocean breeze caresses my bare shoulders, and I shiver, wishing I’d taken my roommate’s advice and brought a shawl with me tonight. I arrived in Los Angeles only four days ago, and I haven’t yet adjusted to the concept of summer temperatures changing with the setting of the sun. In Dallas, June is hot, July is hotter, and August is hell.Not so in California, at least not by the beach. LA Lesson Number One: Always carry a sweater if you’ll be out after dark.Of course, I could leave the balcony and go back inside to the party. Mingle with the millionaires. Chat up the celebrities. Gaze dutifully at the paintings. It is a gala art opening, after all, and my boss brought me here to meet and greet and charm and chat. Not to lust over the panorama that is coming alive in front of me. Bloodred clouds bursting against the pale orange sky. Blue-­ gray waves shimmering with dappled gold.I press my hands against the balcony rail and lean forward, drawn to the intense, unreachable beauty of the setting sun. I regret that I didn’t bring the battered Nikon I’ve had since high school. Not that it would have fit in my itty-­bitty beaded purse. And a bulky camera bag paired with a little black dress is a big, fat fashion no-­no.But this is my very first Pacific Ocean sunset, and I’m determined to document the moment. I pull out my iPhone and snap a picture.“Almost makes the paintings inside seem redundant, doesn’t it?” I recognize the throaty, feminine voice and turn to face Evelyn Dod
