Release Me (Stark Trilogy #1) by J. Kenner

From Goodreads: -

For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey 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

Alright, I'm not a fan of 50 Shades. But I find this book acceptable to me. I like how the story is being unfolded. And the little suspense incorporated into the story.

Nicky Fairchild is strong and bold. She may have her own past demon, but she learn to deal with it. And I would say she did quite well on that. Damien, as expected, is rich and bossy. But then he never look down on Nikki and her best friend who are not as wealthy. In fact, he would try to help in his own way. The attractions between Damien and Nikki are very hot. Close but not entirely a dominant and submissive thing. Though bossy but Damien never play a dominant role, at least it's never spell out in their agreement and Nikki submitted herself out of desire and trust. But she would not submit herself entirely if it's against her believe and her true self. Sometimes I think the way Damien treated Nikki is too perfect, a little unrealistic. I mean, it's very hard to find such man where you are his whole world. Alright, maybe not when Damien being shut off and distance himself from her. But then his intention was to protect Nikki. He thought he can handle everything, he wanted to handle everything. But isn't every man think like this too?

Although the story line may not be very original, but I did not have a tough time finishing the book. The little suspense element in the story keep my interest on.

I rate it 3 out of 5 stars.
