    "Well, you can't love EVERYTHING an author writes"

    Shayla Black's Wicked Lovers series is overall very good, but I just didn't like this one. The best parts were the cameos by previous characters in the series and the excellent narrator. The story itself was so unbelievable that I found myself rolling my eyes a lot and finally listening on double speed just to get through it so I could say I have listened to them all. I wanted to slap both main characters because Hunter was an insufferable bully, and Kata had no spine. I found very few redeeming qualities in either of them, and should have heeded the reviews I read on Amazon and skipped this one. Having said that, I still look forward to the next installments on Audible because the first 3 books were great, and I will listen to those again.

    I'm an audio junkie and people tend to look at me strangely when I tell them I hear voices in my head - through my headphones . . .

    Story
    "Insufferable Angst!"
    What would have made Surrender to Me better?

    A listener/reader can only take so much angst. Kata's constant "If I give in to him, then I'll lose myself, blah, blah blah . . ." gets tiresome after the first 100 times she says it or thinks it. After the 200th time she says it, you just have to start hitting the fast forward button. If the author pulled back from this even just a little, it might have saved this book.


    What was most disappointing about Shayla Black’s story?

    Kata's constant whining.


    Which character – as performed by Lexi Maynard – was your favorite?

    The only two characters I actually enjoyed listening to were Logan and his father.


    Any additional comments?

    Just tone down the back-and-forth "I want him, I don't want him." Listeners/Readers in general are not stupid. Authors don't need to kill a dead horse, resurrect it, and keep on killing it just to get a point across. After a while it just kills the story - not the horse.

    Story
    "I admit, I haven't finished this book."

    But I'm not happy with it at all at this point. I don't think it can be redeemed with only 2 hours left to go.

    I've really enjoyed the previous 3 books for the most part. My biggest problem with this series has been a couple of constants. First, 'typical' submissive women are portrayed as spineless, sniveling, doormats. The strong, sharp tongued, bratty women who wind up as submissives in the series are way more typical of submissives I know. Second, the insistence of the men in the series that the woman of their choosing is really a submissive and she just doesn't know it and if only the big strong Dom would come in and show them, they will (or should) jump straight into the lifestyle with no qualms. Not only is this incredibly unrealistic, but also chauvinistic and insulting.

    Having stated those two generalities, this book in particular has gone so far above and beyond the pushy Dom that it's moved into bullying. The woman only 'gives in to her submissive side' during sex and only after being pushed passed her 'no' point. Admittedly, she's written to really enjoy some of the aspects of submissiveness and she never uses her safe word. But, it's just too much for me and I've become frustrated to the point that I wish she'd kick him to the curb and find an actual caring, loving Dom who trusts her as much as she should trust him.

    I'll get off my soapbox now.

    "The best yet of this series"

    The sex is so hot. Shayla writes so that you really care about the characters. I love, love this series. How long do we have to wait for Book 5 to come out in audio?

    "OMG! No Black Didn't!!!!"

    WHAT! Ok... let me compose myself!!! WHAT!

    The best book of the series soo far. Please Black, Please follow up with Hunter's brother..!!!

    Ok.. I did not expect a book on Hunter.. I was so expecting the next book to be on Tyler... I was not disappointed though. Kata, however is a totally new character for me. I love the fact that she is a big girl. Go Hunter!!! Hunter like a little meat on his bones!! OMG!!! This book was sooo freakin good... She couldn't have been that big though, because Mr. Navy Seal was tossing Kata all over the place.. and he was a DOM!!!! He was more forceful than Jack! Kata however was not like Morgan... she was not going for that crap. Black has out done herself this time.

    Ok. Ok. Ok.. What I love the most about this book was all the freakin action... !!!!! YES!!! I mean Hunter is a Seal so his life is pretty crazy and I like how Black made sure to let you know that Hunter is a bad ass dude without actually having to tell you... SOOOO GOOOD! Plus the smex in the book... was amazing... and it was sooo much compared to all her other books.

    Now.. the foreshowding of the next book can go either way... either Tyler or Landon... Please Please be Landon... Landon has a dungon living room...!!!! Black please don't make me wait two books!!!

    Maynard did great with this book. She actually changed her voice for Kata... I think because Kata was suppose to be hispanic, so Great Job!!!!

    "Best In The Series!"
    Would you listen to Surrender to Me again? Why?

    I have listened to this book a few times already! I love it! So far I would say it is the best in the series!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hunter!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I know this may sound weird, but I loved the scene where Hunter is leaving to return to active duty believing that he will be divorced by the time he returns (or I should say IF since he is sure he isn't going to return alive) to the US. The lengths he goes to in order to make sure that Kata is taken care regardless just goes to show that you can be a bad ass and still speak love with your every action!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I really hated to see this book come to end, but the ending itself is awesome! I laughed, cried, got mad, got upset, and of course got turned on!


    Any additional comments?

    Keep this series coming!

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "I Like"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it was not my favorite in this series, but whats not to like about a hot dominate man falling instantly in love with a woman when he first laid eyes on her. I don't want to ruin the story, but to me it was worth the listen.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hunter, he is so madly in love.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I loved all the Wicked Lovers Series!!

    "Why Women Really Enjoy Abuse"

    Disguised as a romance, Surrender to Me is a disturbing book that preaches that women really want to be beaten, abused and humiliated in the name of love. Here are the rules: 1. Men have the right to dominate without regard. 2. Women give up all rights to their bodies when in a relationship, 3. It's okay to treat women worse than an animal as long as multiple orgasms are involved. 4. What men want is more important than anything else, 5. Women get turned on by abusive and aggressive behavior. While just a work of fiction, novels promoting more violence against women are unsettling, not entertainment.
