New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner kicks off a smoking hot, emotionally compelling new trilogy that returns to the world of her beloved Stark novels: Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete MeSay My Name features Jackson Steele, a strong-willed man who goes after what he wants, and Sylvia Brooks, a disciplined woman who’s hard to get—and exactly who Jackson needs.

I never let anyone get too close—but he’s the only man who’s ever made me feel alive. 

Meeting Jackson Steele was a shock to my senses. Confident and commanding, he could take charge of any room . . . or any woman. And Jackson wanted me. The mere sight of him took my breath away, and his touch made me break all my rules.   

Our bond was immediate, our passion untamed. I wanted to surrender completely to his kiss, but I couldn’t risk his knowing the truth about my past. Yet Jackson carried secrets too, and in our desire we found our escape, pushing our boundaries as far as they could go. 

Learning to trust is never easy. In my mind, I knew I should run. But in my heart, I never felt a fire this strong—and it could either save me or scorch me forever.

Say My Name is intended for mature audiences.

Liza’s Review:

I'm a huge fan of J. Kenner and loved her Stark Trilogy and was excited to get a spin off series with the Stark International series. 

Say My Name hooked me from the moment I started reading. I loved Jackson Steele from the beginning and only loved him even more the more I read. He is such a strong and dominant character. I totally felt the connection between Jackson and Sylvia from the moment they saw each other again after 5 years. We'd seen Sylvia in the Stark Trilogy, but more as a secondary character. I have to say she was a much stronger character than I had imagined and I ended up really liking her.

While we were given much of Jackson and Sylvia's history, I know there is more to their past that what we saw in Say My Name and can't wait to learn more. The chemistry between Sylvia and Jackson was pretty intense from the moment they saw each other again and only grew hotter as the story progressed. I felt like once everything in their past is brought to light and cleared up; they could be an amazing couple. 

I purposefully waited to read Say My Name until I had the other 2 books in the series, as I really hate to get my next fix in a J. Kenner trilogy. She pulls me in from the very first page and I am pretty useless until I finish reading each book. On My Knees book #2 in the Stark International Trilogy and Under My Skin, book #3 in the Stark International Trilogy are my next 2 reads. The Stark International Trilogy is every bit as mysterious and hot as the original Stark series. Well done Ms. Kenner.
