4.5 stars:  COMPLETE ME is the third storyline and final installment in J. Kenner's erotic contemporary Stark Trilogy. There is no time lag between Claim Me (book 2) and this story, and therefore the stress and anxiety of Damien's upcoming trial is still at the forefront of the reader's mind. Complete Me focuses on Damien's trial and the people trying to bring down the billionaire. The reader experiences the heartbreaking revelations and painful past of a young boy who is forced into some unspeakable acts only to have to relive it over and over through memories, nightmares and the reality of courtroom drama and the press. Nikki is the strong, independent woman who continues to stand by his side, knowing that man that she loves is bordering the edge of control on an emotional void. She is there to pull him back and help him deal with the demons that threaten to suck him in and take him down. Without Nikki, Damien is only a shell; he is a man without purpose and a heart without soul. But Damien's need to defend and protect Nikki will force an unpleasant impasse when he refuses to open up and talk about the past. The storyline is rife with physical intimacy, sexual heat and sensual talk. The sex is abundant and often, explicit and hot, and at times overwhelming to the story and plot. There was so much sex that I started to skip-read through these passages. Although this is written in the erotic/romance genre, after awhile the sex felt like `filler'-no pun intended. There are moments of fear and concern, heartbreaking sorrow and loss. And there is the mistaken belief that to walk away, is the only solution when the world threatens to destroy the person that you love. The couple continues to struggle with their individual personality quirks and needs; Nikki's need to be independent and Damien's need to protect will forever be on the peripheral boundary of their love. "I want to hold you close. To cherish and protect you. To draw you in until we are so close that I am lost without you. I want to take you to bed, to watch the way your skin tightens beneath my fingers, the way you body awakens under my touch....Everything I've built? All my companies? All my billions? They have no value compared to you." COMPLETE ME is a detailed and wonderful final chapter in the Stark Trilogy but there is still some room for short stories and novellas. The series ends with a HEA, but in my opinion it is another beginning for Nikki and Damien. J. Kenner has written a series that will make you smile and cry; you will feel the anxiety, the pain and the love; you will experience the fear of loss, the anguish of betrayal and the satisfaction of one man finding his heart and his soul in the woman who is willing to endure the suffering alongside the man that she loves. see all of my reviews at : thereadingcafe(dot)com

I am a fan of this series, so I was excited to receive an ARC of this book. The book had plenty of steamy scenes and drama for both Damien and Nikki. I was only disappointed that the series was done.

Book 3 in the trilogy was just OK. I loved the sex scenes in the previous books, but in book 3 it was all it was. It became boring soon and I skimmed through them pages at a time. The suspense could have been better too. I found the stalker conclusion too predictable and the end pretty lame. At least we get the happily ever after we were waiting for.

4.5 I will miss you Damien Stars! First of all, I am depressed. I am depressed that this is the end of Damien and Nikki. J. Kenner has taken us on a rollercoaster ride of emotions in this trilogy and I am sad to see it end. I love Damien. I love his dominant controlling ways and I love how he loves. He is one of my favorite book boyfriends and no matter who comes and goes in that list, I know Damien will stay there. There is so much going on in this book and at times I didn't know who to trust or where to turn, but it worked out. The more I read, the more I fell in love. In this book, we finally find out what Damien is hiding with his past. Throughout the legal battle, Nikki stayed right there with her and I was thankful to see her grow up. This book is just so good. The smutty sexy times are there...and there are loads of them. I am so glad they overcame their pasts and I want to say more, but I don't want to ruin this book for anyone. Gah, just go read this amazing book. Damien, I will miss you! **Copy kindly provided via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review! **Tammy**

it has taken a while to get into this book. I have read the first two in the series and kept me turning pages. Something happen with book three. It has taken me a month to get half way through this book and usually I can read a 300pg book in a couple of hours.

I was very excited for this book to come out but was a bit disappointed in it. I felt the book dragged a little and feel the ending was a little rushed.

'Against all odds' - this pretty much sums up Nikki and Damien's plight in the third and last book in the Stark Trilogy. I was looking forward to reading the third installment in the Stark Trilogy series by J. Kenner because the first two books were highly rated. When I got approved to read the ARC, I felt like Christmas came waaaay too early for me! In my defense, both main characters grew on me so I can't simply NOT read the third book. Heh. Now, for the review proper! In this last installment in the book, we get a bunch of tangible and intense conflicts which threaten to break apart Nikki and Damien. What I liked best in this story was that the conflicts weren't only emotional. There were also external forces which posed a huge threat to Nikki and Damien. For emotional conflicts, this was where everything blew over from the first two books. Damien was too overbearing and too secretive, which gave rise to a whole lot of trust issues between him and Nikki. And of course, there's also fragile Nikki. She's not exactly as stable as most people perceive her to be. Damien served as her anchor but then, their relationship was racked by trust issues and noble idiocy, so the push to cut was really strong. As for external conflicts, there's the issue of Damien's horrific childhood in the hands of his tennis coach, and the psychopathic woman who's trying to break apart Damien and Nikki. His empire is also being threatened by these forces, and he's left backed into a corner. All the conflicts seriously gave the story a whole lot of angst and drama, but in fairness, I like how the author balanced everything with quiet moments between Nikki and Damien. The angst and the drama was perfectly blended with comfortable moments which could be considered as the calm moments before the storm. What I didn't like, however, is the noble idiocy. Sure, sacrificing for a loved one is considered selflessness, but sometimes, it's just absurd. In this case, I didn't like how Damien tried to be a noble idiot by leaving Nikki and going to Germany. Then just as they patched up, Nikki suddenly gets hit with the noble-idiocy-virus and leaves Damien to keep him safe. I just don't really like this plot device because I consider it stupid. All in all, the happy ending in this third and last installment had been a long time coming. I really appreciate that Nikki and Damien finally got together minus the conflicts. They really went through a lot together, so when the happy ending came, I was really happy for them.

I liked this series a lot, but this final book bothered me. It had way too many "borrowed" plot elements from FSOG. I loved the characters enough to finish.

After having read all three books, i have to say that i will follow this writer's works for the rest of her career. Never was i able to put any of these books down. I was engrossed from the first page. The cost of this book was beyond worth it. I enjoyed this book as much, if not more than the Bared To You series (just to give youba point of refrence). And was beyond excited that this author knows the correct number of books in a Trilogy! Wonderfuly written. Never too wordy. EVER SO SEXY!!!! SO SO SEXY!!! this erotic story provided everything i require in a sexy novel: lots of romance (real loving & meanungful relationship) & lots of juicy sex. READ THIS SERIES!!! you wint be disappointed

I loved the conclusion to Nikki and Damien's story - we finally get all the answers about Damien's past which really does help you understand the complexities of this man. Nikki comes into her own and shows that she has grown and found her inner strength since she first met Damien. It was frustrating and a crazy emotional roller-coaster watching Damien continue to hide/keep information from Nikki but just as she had to come to terms with her past and how to move forward, Damien does the same. This is a part of the book where a chapter from Damien's POV would have been enlightening but not mandatory, just being a greedy reader since I loved reading this series. I must admit that I really would have liked an epilogue with the wedding/honeymoon because we know the honeymoon would have been off the charts for the 2 of them.

I found Complete Me, the third installment of the Stark Trilogy, to be a top rated entry in the genre of erotic romance. There are many players in this field, but J.Kenner does the job, creating a tightly woven story with intriguing characters, surprises at every turn and sexual romance that hits it out of the park! She's teased her readers with a few novellas following this 3rd full length novel about Nikki and Damien, but this reader could easily sit through another three full length! For me, this book and its accompanying companion novels, rate up right there with 50 Shades.
