"Claim Me" is the second installment to J. Kenner's Stark Trilogy and it definitely answered a few questions that I had from the first book.  The second book picks up from where the first book left off at, so if you have not read the first book, I definitely recommend it.

Nikki Fairchild is obsessed with Damien Stark and in the second installment the obsession has become even worst for her.  In fact, Damien has now become her pain reliever and Nikki has become his source to let out some stress.  They both are amazing together though.  Damien is finally opening up on what is going on in his life in "Claim Me" and Nikki is proving to be the strongest of the two.  I have come to admire Nikki even more in this book.  Here the woman is put through a whole lot of mess and she overcomes it all.  She almost stumbles, but she has proven she can overcome anything thrown at her.

If you have read "Release Me", you probably had a lot of questions on what was happening in Damien's head and what made him have so many secrets.  Slowly, but surely he begins to open up in the second installment.
He showed his possessive side more in this book as well, which could be found to be annoying to some people, but his motive behind it all will make your realize his intentions are for the greater good.
I loved everything in the second installment and now I look forward to even more the final book.  J. Kenner leaves you hanging at the end which makes me wonder what is going to happen next.  Are the characters going to ever have a happily ever after?
I want to know who is causing all the issues and I have a funny feeling I know who it is.
Poor Nikki not only goes through so much in this book, but her best friend, Jamie did as well.
Her other best friend, Ollie, I cannot figure him out, but in this book I did not like him.  I feel he is up to no good.
I loved how J. Kenner made Nikki stronger though in this book and made me hate Damien at points in the book where I wanted to hurt him for Nikki.  Damien though is nothing like Gideon Cross from the Cross novels by Sylvia Day.  In fact, Damien, is not one who plays games, he admires and loves Nikki.   He just has a very particular way of showing it.  I cannot compare him to Christian since I have not read the FSoG books and really tend not to read them anytime soon so I will not compare Damien to him.

J. Kenner's writing style is definitely different from other contemporary authors I have read, which makes me adore her even more.  She has a way of describing in detail that will make you feel you are there. She also makes you feel the emotions of the characters.  That is one writing style that makes it more appealing for me to read since I feel like the characters are real.

This book has a lot of angst, friendship blow ups, and lots, lots of HOT sexual scenes between Nikki and Damien.  The purple scarf on the cover of the book plays a very significant role in the book.  =)

I give this book 4.5 full moons and highly recommend it to contemporary romance and erotica readers out there.  This book is intended for 18+ mature audience though...just to warn you.

I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

No need to buy the book thanks to all the plot spoilers giving away every detail of the book! (Insert heavy sarcasm here) thanks a lot!

    Disappointed

    The characters in this secondbook lacked story, it was all repetative sex. It never got back on track until 3/4 through the book. Book one was so good building there characters.

    Loved then hated

    This series was great until i got half way into the second book then it just got boring. The steamy scenes stopped being steamy because they were worded the same way every time. There wasnt really anything exciting or mysterious to look forward too. I really just finished the series out becaused i felt like i needed too, didnt want too, but needed too.

    Lets stop trying to put more sex in a book then Fifty Shades of Grey. 75% of this book was about wild sex. They couldn't finish breakfast without having sex. This would have made one great book. Good story but you keep turning the pages waiting to find it. I love a steamy romance but enough is enough. Book one was better and the story could have ended in book two. I won't buy book three. If she screams Damien, Damien one more time I will scream.

    Liked Release Me...?

    I am not sure where to start with this review...
    I liked the first book in this series, Release Me. I really enjoyed it! But I am actually having a hard time finishing this second installment. I like the characters and the storyline but its just repeating the same stuff. I have not finished it yet, this is my 3rd and final attempt to finish this book. Sooooo disappointed because the story and characters are amazing and fun! I love Nikki, she is such a great "real" character. I am so burned out on the fake female characters... Nikki is a breath of fresh air, I could not only relate to her but she makes the entire book worthwhile. Really wish this 2nd book was better, cause it had all the aspects of being an amazing sequel. Maybe it will get better??? I sure hope so!
