CLAIM ME is the second in the STARK trilogy and it starts off happily with Nikki and Damien settling in. They seem to finally feel safe in letting their guard down in knowing that they’ve found someone who understands the other. Yet there is a part of Damien that is still secretive and tries to shield her from his issues. He wants her to remain untouched because he would rather die than risk her emotional well-being. When the past rears its ugly head, Damien is willing to walk away from her. The old Nikki may have let him walk away but she isn’t now. It’s her turn to be the strong one. The secondary characters are back and central in moving the plot forward. There is still much to learn about Damien’s past so it will be interesting to see what will happen in the conclusion of the trilogy. Will Damien and Nikki’s scars be too much for them to overcome or will their relationship be strong enough to withstand the outside world? I can’t wait for the conclusion of the STARK trilogy in COMPLETE ME.
