About the Book: 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 an erotic romance intended for mature audiences. [Description provided by]

My Review: Man, I was not prepared for how sexy this was! Let me just say, I wouldn't toss Jackson Steele out of my life if he walked in. I may have fanned myself more than a few times while reading "Say My Name" - and if author J. Kenner's other novels are on par with this one, I will definitely be looking at more.

There was a time or two I got confused about whether we were in the past or present, but that is my only real critique. I greatly enjoyed the story. The big climax at the end was a little predictable, it was still original enough that I thought Kenner gave an old trick a new spin.

While this may be part of a series, I can say for sure that this can be read as a stand-alone. Past characters show up in this novel, but no prior knowledge of the author's other works is necessary to enjoy "Say My Name." However, I'm sure you, like me, will be hunting down the author's other works in no time!

Cover Lovin': Whoa boy, I have nothing bad to say about this cover. Definitely two thumbs up!

Recommendation: Definitely for those that like a lot of steamy stuff in their romances. 18+

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE (4/5) stars! Very hot, and very fun - a must read!

Happy Reading!
