About On My Knees:Jackson Steele and Sylvia Brooks continue to thrill in the second novel of a scintillating, emotionally charged new trilogy that returns to the world of J. Kenner’s beloved Stark novels: Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me.
I never thought I’d lose control, but his desire took me right to the edge.
Powerful, ambitious, and devastatingly sexy, Jackson Steele was unlike any other man I’d ever known. He went after what he wanted with his whole mind, body, and soul—and I was the woman in his sights. One touch and I surrendered, one night together and I was undone.
Jackson and I had secrets, dark pieces of our pasts that threatened to swallow us both. We couldn’t outrun our demons, or the people trying to tear us apart. But in our passion we found salvation, and in each other’s arms we found release.
I was scared to trust Jackson fully, to finally let go. Yet no matter the dangers that lay ahead, I knew I was his—and now that we’ve laid claim, there’s no more holding back.
On My Knees Review:
Honestly, this book felt a little like filler to me. Like how the middle of every single season of Revenge is. Where the writer has something really huge coming up for us, but is saving it for the season finale (or in this case, the final book).
To explain it in real terms, instead of my own language of relating things to TV shows, the book was kind of a plateau.
It kind of mirrored Say My Name a lot – the same issues, but with different details. And it ends on a cliffhangy high note extremely similar to book #1.
And that cliffhangy high note was the first real “OMG WTF” moment of the book for me, which has never been the case for me with J. Kenner’s books. It kind of felt like the a lot of the book was stuff added later in order to align that moment with the end of the book so it could be the cliffhanger.
That said, what a cliffhanger it was. Obviously because of that, because I hate only reading 2 books in a trilogy, and because I love J. Kenner, I will still be reading the 3rd book.
