NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From J. Kenner comes the third novel in the fast-paced trilogy including Release Me and Claim Me. This sexy, emotionally charged romance continues the story of Damien Stark, the powerful multimillionaire who's never had to take "no" for an answer, and Nikki Fairchild, the Southern belle who only says "yes" on her own terms.
Our desire runs deep. But our secrets cut close.
Beautiful, strong, and commanding, Damien Stark fills a void in me that no other man can touch. His fierce cravings push me beyond the brink of bliss—and unleash a wild passion that utterly consumes us both.
Yet beneath his need for dominance, he carries the wounds of a painful past. Haunted by a legacy of dark secrets and broken trust, he seeks release in our shared ecstasy, the heat between us burning stronger each day.
Our attraction is undeniable, our obsession inevitable. Yet not even Damien can run from his ghosts, or shield us from the dangers yet to come.
Complete Me is intended for mature audiences.

3 sexed up stars for COMPLETE ME.
Now that Damien Stark is on trial in Germany for murder, he's determined to keep Nikki Fairchild safe from the chaos surrounding him. But Nikki is having none of it. What started as a modeling job for the billionaire has turned into a deep love between them, and she'll stop at nothing to protect her man. But how can she protect him if he's not telling her the whole truth about…well, anything. His past is bumping up solidly against her present, and Nikki and Damien are powerless to do anything to stop the inevitable crash from happening. Will the couple be able to weather this most recent storm or will all the secrets come between them?
COMPLETE ME is the third (but not final!) book in the Stark Trilogy
. In this edition, Damien is facing a murder trial against his childhood tennis coach and once again, Nikki is standing by her man. I did enjoy COMPLETE ME much more than the first two books, though the cheese factor was still prevalent…witness:
The drapes are open, and the window of our fifth-floor suite overlooks the Maximilianstrasse. "That's it," he says. "I want to watch as the sky darkens and the city lights rise behind you. I want to see the sunset reflected on your skin and the glitter of the nightlife shining in your hair."
There's not much worse than insincere-sounding romantic prose. That said, Nikki and Damien have settled into a solid relationship and fight hard for each other. Their mental/sexual needs are nicely compatible (though the obscene amount of sex scenes are overwhelming and I, quite frankly, skimmed through most of them). The underlying threat was decently done, though both Damien and Nikki's reactions seemed way over the top at times. The ending was satisfying, and given that I'm not going to read books 3.5-3.11, it'll have to do.
Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; no condoms; BDSM/kink; discussion of past sexual assault; no violence/murder.
