Say My Name comp final
Title: Say My Name
Series: Stark International Trilogy #1
Author: J. Kenner
Release Date: April 7, 2015

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.


While I've loved all of J. Kenner's books I'm always a little bit afraid that the next book in the series or saga will be overkill. I am thrilled to be wrong. J. Kenner once again proves that even though some of the characters might be the same, the book is brand new and exciting. I loved Jackson and Sylvia. I loved their history and their present. 

Jackson is a typical J. Kenner male. He's all alpha male - commanding, dominant, confident, and HOTTTT!!! But he's not Damien Stark. He's definitely his own character. He can hold his own against Damien (and he does). He has secrets that get revealed at the end.

Sylvia is Damien's assistant. But she wasn't always. She has a history, and a history with Jackson. She also has secrets and trust issues. But when she relinquishes control to Jackson she frees herself. 

I can not wait to see what happens in the next books in this series. This is probably one of my top books of the year. Loved it and give it FIVE STARS!
