3 eye-rolling stars for CLAIM ME.

Now that secrets are out in the open, Nikki Fairchild and Damien Stark can develop their relationship without the yoke of the unknown around their necks. But Nikki quickly learns that Damien still keeps things close to the vest, much to her frustration. And with paparazzi chasing her every move now that she's with a bonafide celebrity, Nikki needs her focus more than ever, whether it's through pain or pleasure. Good thing for her Damien is an expert in both.

Soooo, yeah. CLAIM ME is book 2 in the Stark Trilogy series (which keeps going way past the three book "trilogy" threshold, FYI), and I pretty much just skimmed the entire thing. Between obnoxiously frequent and overdone sex scenes, irritating dialogue, so-so characters and cringe worthy plot line, I found my eyes rolling almost constantly.

And as I ride him, Damien's hands on my hips and his strong arms helping me to piston my body on his rock-hard cock, I drink in this sexual symphony, and I look deep into his eyes as we both silently, quietly, explode in each other's arms.

Behold, the power of cheese. I just can't get into this series. The thought that paparazzi swarmed this billionaire and former beauty queen constantly was just stupid. I follow enough celeb gossip to know that if the two of them made news, it would not involve dozens of paps chasing them down in LA. Additionally…I've heard this song before. There was absolutely nothing new in this book (or this series for that matter), and it's been done a hell of a lot better than this.

I'm committed to reading the rest of the series. But I don't like it.

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; no condoms; mild BDSM/kink; discussion of past sexual assault; no violence/murder.
