Book Review: Complete Me (The Stark Trilogy) by J. Kenner

I've been reading a lot of final books in trilogies lately and while I love getting closure on how those stories end, I really miss some of the characters when it is all over. In Complete Me by J. Kenner we get the final chapter of the intense passion that is Damien Stark and Nikki Fairchild. And while it was a great ending, I'm definitely going to miss them both. I fell for both Damien and Nikki way back in book one. They sucked me in quickly and held on tight which led me to read the first two books within 24 hours. I've been anxiously awaiting their conclusion and I couldn't be happier with this final book.

When we last left them, Damien and Nikki were in Germany preparing for the murder trial. We know that he is not guilty, but the circumstantial evidence doesn't make him look good and its hard to tell which way the trial will go. The truth about his abuse as a child could ultimately help him win, but will he give into to Nikki's demands to tell the world those truths? Doing that means losing control and we know that is not something Damien ever likes to do.

On top of the stress from the trial, Nikki starts receiving threats, which adds another layer of drama. This of course makes the already possessive Damien even more so. But Damien and Nikki do what they do best and lose themselves in each other in fiery hot passion. Damien is still deliciously dominant and he needs that control, while Nikki is more than happy to submit to him and remain in their little bubble away from reality. But will their love and passion be strong enough see them through all of these tests?

"I'm going to make you come harder and longer than you ever have before, baby, and I'm going to feel every shudder, every ripple of that orgasm as it rips through you because I am going to be right here holding tight to you, buried deep inside you. And, Nikki, I'm not ever letting go. "

Yeah. Wow. {fans self} If you survive that heat, you will also enjoy the drama that this couple goes through as well as a little bit of suspense. These two troubled souls need each other to heal and really just to even live and breathe. The ending comes with a bit of a twist which while I had a brief moment of speculation that it might play out this way, I didn't actually think it would. So it kind of surprised me but in a good way. And it totally worked and gave everything a nice conclusion. Like I said, I'm sad to say goodbye to Nikki and Damien, but I thoroughly enjoyed the conclusion that J. Kenner wrote for them.

Complete Me will  be available for purchase on July 30, 2013. You can pre-order it from the store links below.

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.


  1. I liked the ending how ever I think I would have liked to read about the wedding witch in some way makes me want to read about closer with Nikki and her mom maybe for Nikki to tell her off once and for all

    1. Oh a wedding would have been nice! Maybe she will gift us with a bonus some where down the road. :)
