Claim Me (Stark Trilogy #2)

Claim Me (Stark Trilogy #2) is the newest release from J. Kenner.  The publisher is Random House and the release date was April 23, 2013. From the back cover.~
For Damien, our obsession is a game. For me, it is fiercely, blindingly, real.

Damien Stark’s need is palpable—his need for pleasure, his need for control, his need for me. Beautiful and brilliant yet tortured at his core, he is in every way my match.

I have agreed to be his alone, and now I want him to be fully mine. I want us to possess each other beyond the sweetest edge of our ecstasy, into the deepest desires of our souls. To let the fire that burns between us consume us both.

But there are dark places within Damien that not even our wildest passion can touch. I yearn to know his secrets, yearn for him to surrender to me as I have surrendered to him. But our troubled pasts will either bind us close . . . or shatter us completely.

I was lucky enough to be approved for a review copy from NetGalley thanks to the publisher. I got hooked on this series with Release Me and had to see what happened next between Damien and Nikki in Claim Me.

The connection between Nikki and Damien is every bit as hot in Claim Me as it was in Release Me. I still love Nikki and Damien as a couple and liked this installment into their story. The only problem I really had with this book was Nikki’s repeatedly complaining about Damien not being more open about his past. She knew going into their relationship that Damien had secrets he wasn’t ready to share with her. I liked that he did open up a bit more about some of what happened in his past, but wished he had told her one of his biggest secrets before part was made public.

I honestly think Nikki is stronger as a person when she has Damien in her life. In my opinion, she was more willing to stand up for herself and those she loves, especially Damien. I did feel that Nikki and Damien grew closer in this book and really do love them as a couple.

I’m looking forward to seeing what happens in Complete Me, the final book in this series, and have already pre-ordered my copy for the July 30, 2013 release date.
