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 Me. Say My Namefeatures 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
Review by: Amy
I LOVE this series and I think this is the best book yet! I have enjoyed watching Damian Stark and Nikki rise from their person turmoil to be stronger and better than ever. The face that the author has been able to introduce supporting characters that eventually have their own books is amazing! That show me that there is amazing talent in the writing! Watching Julie develop Sylvia and Jackson was explosive. Their rocky yet steamy relationship was just sexy, swoony and over all amazing!!! I enjoyed this book and read it all in one sitting! Sylvia was sooooo incredibly strong and broken that I nearly broke my heart. Watching her struggle through one heartache that nearly crumbled her was hard to read. BUT the fighter in her would not give up and the climb she made back was inspiring! I was awestruck at how she fought and clawed her way back. Day by day was a challenge but she was amazingly strong and once she gave her heart to Jackson her whole life fell into place. Jackson Jackson Jackson…strong and swoon worthy and just delicious to read!! I was just weak kneed at how he could walk into a room and command the attention of all around him. He had the power and persuasion that just drive women mad and he knew it. But he only wanted one and she was worth every bit of fight he had in him. Watching him pursue and take care of Sylvia made him loveable and lust-able at the same time. I am a fan of this series and this book was by far one of the best. It had me captivated and enthralled from the first few pages. I was able to read it in one sitting because of its easy and comfortable flow and structure. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it!
J. Kenner (aka Julie Kenner) is the New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal and International bestselling author of over seventy novels, novellas and short stories in a variety of genres.
Though known primarily for her award-winning and international bestselling erotic romances (including the Stark and Most Wanted series) that have reached as high as #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, JK has been writing full time for over a decade in a variety of genres including paranormal and contemporary romance, “chicklit” suspense, urban fantasy, Victorian-era thrillers (coming soon), and paranormal mommy lit.
Her foray into the latter, Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom by Julie Kenner, has been consistently in development in Hollywood since prior to publication. Most recently, it has been optioned by Warner Brothers Television for development as series on the CW Network with Alloy Entertainment producing.
JK has been praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a “flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations” and by RT Bookclub for having “cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swopn for him.” A three time finalist for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA award, JK took home the first RITA trophy awarded in the category of erotic romance in 2014 for her novel, Claim Me (book 2 of her Stark Trilogy).
Her books have sold well over a million copies and are published in over over twenty countries.
In her previous career as an attorney, JK worked as a clerk on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and practiced primarily civil, entertainment and First Amendment litigation in Los Angeles and Irvine, California, as well as in Austin, Texas. She currently lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and two rather spastic cats.
