Jackson Steele and Sylvia Brooks continue to thrill in the second novel of a scintillating, emotionally charged new trilogy that returns to the world of J. Kenner’s beloved Stark novels: Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me.
I never thought I’d lose control, but his desire took me right to the edge.
Powerful, ambitious, and devastatingly sexy, Jackson Steele was unlike any other man I’d ever known. He went after what he wanted with his whole mind, body, and soul—and I was the woman in his sights. One touch and I surrendered, one night together and I was undone.
Jackson and I had secrets, dark pieces of our pasts that threatened to swallow us both. We couldn’t outrun our demons, or the people trying to tear us apart. But in our passion we found salvation, and in each other’s arms we found release.
I was scared to trust Jackson fully, to finally let go. Yet no matter the dangers that lay ahead, I knew I was his—and now that we’ve laid claim, there’s no more holding back.
There’s a LOT happening in this second book of the trilogy! Just one surprise after another, so much that this one was hard to turn off. Jackson and Sylvia face many challenges, learning to work together personally and professionally.
One of the biggest issues in this story is trust. While Sylvia and Jackson have resumed their relationship, there’s still quite a bit to discover about each other. Both have some serious, explosive secrets and figuring out the right time to share them with each other is awfully tricky. Fortunately, we’re included in each character’s reasoning as he or she worked through them. However, I came into this a bit wary of Jackson. You’ll have to read the story to best understand where that comes from:)
Abby Craden continues to deliver a strong performance though I continue to feel parts are overly dramatic. In her defense, they seem to be dictated by the script and when applying voice to the words, they’re just amplified.
I’m continuing to enjoy the series (yes, I’m surprised) and this one ends in a cliffhanger. The good news is that a 20-minute clip of the next book is included to ease the angst. It worked. Stay tuned and I’m looking forward to listening to the last book in the trilogy.
I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
