Book Blurb:
For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You comes a fast-paced, erotic eBook novella from J. Kenner. Following The Stark Trilogy—the bestselling novels Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me—“Take Me” continues the story of Damien Stark and Nikki Fairchild, and introduces Evan Black, the enigmatic man at the center of J. Kenner’s upcoming novel, Wanted .

I’ve long dreamed of my fairy tale wedding, but it wasn’t until I met Damien Stark—who captured me with his kisses and undid me with his touch—that I began to believe it was my destiny. Though we both carry secrets and scars, our shared passion heals us, binding us together. We have surrendered to each other completely, and our mutual ecstasy is the brightest light in my life.

But darkness still snakes through the cracks in our armor. Ghosts from our past have moved in, bringing fresh pain that cuts deep and threatens to destroy everything we hold dear.

Damien is my anchor to this world, and I am his. But if we are going to keep each other, we have to fight the shadows of our pasts to move forward into our future.

“Take Me” is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.
My Review:
If, like me, you were left at the end of Complete Me wishing there was an epilogue, because the story just didn't seem quite finished... then this is the novella for you. This was a reminder to me of how much I liked Damien and Nikki. They work so well as a couple, and watching them prepare for their wedding was a wonderful treat. Unlike the previous novels, this one does not quite have the same high level of angst and suspense, but that was more than okay with me. There was enough irritation and mini-drama thrown in from Nikki's mom to keep us on our toes, wondering how everything was going to turn out, and if Nikki was going to finally stand up for herself. Of course, Damien and Nikki don't fail us in the sex and heat department. Their passionate chemistry still sizzles off the pages. But what I really enjoyed was their sweet relationship and connection. They are so tender and in love and by the end of the novella I was thrilled for them. I felt like I got the closure I had been missing out on in Complete Me. But would I like to see more of Damien and Nikki? Of course! I'm hoping they will make an appearance in Jamie's novella, Tame Me.
