FROM NEW YORK TIMES AND #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR J. KENNER comes the highly anticipated fourth novel in the fast-paced series including Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me. This sexy, emotionally charged romance continues the story of Damien Stark, the powerful multimillionaire who’s never had to take “no” for an answer, and his beloved wife Nikki Fairchild Stark, the Southern belle who only says “yes” on her own terms.   It’s a new chapter in the life of Nikki and Damien Stark ...   Though shadows still haunt us, and ghosts from our past continue to threaten our happiness, my life with Damien is nothing short of perfection. He is my heart and my soul. My past and my future. He is the man who holds me together, and his love fuels my days and enchants my nights.   But when tragedy and challenge from both inside and outside the sanctity of our marriage begin to chip away at our happiness, I am forced to realize that even a perfect life can begin to crack. And if Damien and I are going to win this new battle, it will take all of our strength and love ...

Anchor Me teaser 6    
 I look out the window at the beautifully manicured yards that line the wide street down which I am traveling in the sumptuous luxury of a classic Rolls Royce Phantom. A car so sleek and magical that I can’t help but feel like a princess in a royal coach. The road is shaded by parallel rows of massive oaks, their branches arcing over the street toward their counterparts to form a leafy canopy. Morning light fights its way between the leaves, creating golden beams in which dust sparkles and dances as if to a celebratory melody, adding to the illusion that we are moving through a fairy tale world. All in all, it’s a picture-perfect moment. Except it’s not. Not really. Or at least not to me. Because as far as I’m concerned, this is no children’s story. This is Dallas. This is the neighborhood where I grew up. And that means that this isn’t a fairy tale. It’s a nightmare. The branches aren’t stunning—they’re grasping. Reaching out to snare me. To hold me tight. To trap me. The canopy doesn’t mark a royal corridor leading to a castle. It leads to a cell. And it’s not The Dance of the Sugarplum Fairies that fills the air. It is a requiem for the dead. The world outside the car is lined with traps, and if I’m not careful, I’ll be sucked in. Destroyed by the darkness that hides behind the false facades of these stately houses. Surrounded not by a bright children’s tale, but by a horror movie, lured in by the promise of beauty and then trapped forever and slowly destroyed, ripped to pieces by the monsters in the dark. Breathe, I tell myself. You can do this. You just have to remember to breathe. “Nikki. Nikki.” Damien’s voice startles me back to reality, and I jerk upright, calling upon perfect posture to ward off the ghosts of my memories. His tone is soft, profoundly gentle, but when I glance toward him, I see that his eyes have dipped to my lap. For a moment, I’m confused, then I realize that I’ve inched up my skirt, and my fingertip is slowly tracing the violent scar that mars my inner thigh. A souvenir of the deep, ugly wound that I inflicted upon myself a decade ago when I was desperate to find a way to release all the pent-up anger and fear and pain that swirled inside me like a phalanx of demons. I yank my hand away, then turn to look out the window, feeling oddly, stupidly ashamed. He says nothing, but the car moves to the curb and then rolls to a stop. A moment later, Damien’s fingers twine with mine. I hold tight, drawing strength, and when I shift to look at him more directly, I see worry etched in the hard angles of that perfect face and reflected in those exceptional, dual-colored eyes. Worry, yes. But it is the rest of what I see that takes my breath away. Understanding. Support. Respect. Most of all, I see a love so fierce it has the power to melt me, and I revel in its power to soothe. He is the biggest miracle of my life, and there are moments when I still can’t believe that he is mine. Damien Stark. My husband, my lover, my best friend. A man who commands an empire with a firm, controlling hand. Who takes orders from no one, and yet today is playing chauffeur so that he can stand beside me while I confront my past.   Anchor Me teaser 3Review


I have to say that I loved  this story cover to cover.I have to say that this was just my luck to pick up this story and it has to be the end of the trilogy .Regardless I could not help but be addicted to the characters Ms. Jenner wrote about and went a got the rest of the books in its series and read the entire series in two days and fell in love with her characters all over again.

This was one hot read and also her previous books in its series.And addictive read that had me engrossed from the very first pages.I loved the drama,love,chemistry,role playing,suspense,the off the chart sex scenes along with dealing with some serious life altering issues.

I normally pick a favorite in each book to go on about but its just to hard to choose between Damien and Nikki so I am choosing them both they were both amazing characters that I could not help but be drawn to both of them.

I love so much about Nikki her strength,sense of humor,how open and honest she is,ambitious,how she loves whole heartily,her possessiveness when it comes to Damien and how smart and sexy she is and how she chose to deal with her pain in a more positive way.

Omg Damien I fell head over heels for him from the get go.I loved that he was smart,sexy,ambitious,loved his dark side along with his Dominate side ,how he loved whole heartily as well,how possessive he was of Nikki and her needs and wants and her happiness and how he always put her first.I love how he gave as much as he took.

The sexual chemistry was off the charts for this couple.I love how they added humor and playfulness into their sexual games to make it so much more exciting for both of them.I loved all the side character's as well.They added humor and fun to the pages when it took on more of a more serious tone.Ollie and Jamie were love able characters as well even with all their faults and bad decisions  they kept constantly  making.They made me laugh ,especially Jamie and the things that came out of that girls mouth to funny..Jamie was the perfect friend for Nikki they were total opposites that kept each other in check.


I love when your able to connect with the character's you read about and I was able to make that connection with both Nikki and Jamie.Fate had a hand in bringing this couple together at the right time and place.Damien was just what Nikki needed and vise versa  they  needed one another to heal their wounded souls and bring them true happiness both of them deserved.

A winner in our book and definitely goes in the keeper pile to read over and over again.If you love suspense,humor,really hot sex scene's ( and their are tons of them) with the Dominate and submissive role playing angle with a very touching emotional love story that tackled some really painful issues that a couple deals with in  childhood as well as adulthood this is the perfect story for you.This is not the kind of story for those that have a sensitive natures it deals with real raw emotions the kink aspect in a couples relationship that brings sexual gratification to both parties that gives them what the need ,want enjoy .Not a story for those who are vanilla that is for sure the open minded yes.

I love a story that gives you a lot to think about after its over.Like how if you were Nikki could you cope with all the drama that came from begin in love with a very powerful and wealthy man?  Deal with enemies he's made along the way,the secrets he carries , the press never allowing you a moments piece and constantly invading your personal life?Someone constantly out to get you and ruin the happiness you have finally found to complete you? Could you love someone like that and eventually not let all those things come between you ? Perhaps break you?I love when a story just sticks with you after its over and has you thinking back to something that made you laugh or cry throughout the day when you finished the story hours or days ago.

What more can I say? I loved it along with the other books in its series as well as the novella's and would recommend reading.If you loved Fifty shades of Grey give this series  a look at it just be just what your looking for next.

5 star read for us
