For five years, Serena has run Fantasy Incorporated and has devoted her time to fulfilling her clients' fantasies, never her own - until now....
Her most secret desire is to give ownership of her body to a man. Someone who will command her, pleasure her, and have complete authority over her. So she seeks out Damon Roche, owner of an exclusive sex club and a man strong enough to make her do anything he wants. Anything. Together they'll journey into a world she's only dreamed of. She's given the opportunity to immerse herself in a different life while her normal one waits for her to return whenever she wishes.
Damon has no desire to let her go, however. Serena is the woman he's long searched for, and it's up to him to convince her to stay when the game is all over with. He wants their fantasy to become their reality and for Serena to remain his pampered, cherished submissive.

"Incredibly intense and complex characters, delicious conflict and explosive sex scenes that fairly melt the print off the pages, Sweet Persuasion will have Maya Banks fans, new and existing alike, lasciviously begging for more." (Romantic Times)
I absolutely love the sweet series by Maya Banks. I've read them all and now that I've found them in a audiobook I'm listening to them all. I love Damen and Serena's story and if you haven't read or listened to them yet I highly recommend that you add these to your library or wish list for future purchase.
I enjoyed the book, but did not find it one of my favorites. After KGI and The Colter's I am now getting around to reviewing the Sweet series..while I didn't understand Serena's needs, I accepted that she knew what she wanted/ needed. Domination is one thing, but sexual slavery is another. I couldn't reconcile that with what she got. I loved Damon in Bk 1 and was looking forward to getting a better understanding in his story, but unfortunately, that didn't happen. I loved how their relationship was coming together, but hate when both parties want more, but are afraid to tell each other. They're both seemingly strong, confident people, but asking for more in a relationship is not possible... seriously..Found that hard to believe. I agree with the other review that serena's response to the little girl's passing was a bit much. One, she didn't get that close to the girl or her parents and 2, I have to believe that the bulk of her clients are terminal or elderly, etc..this should not have affected her to the degree of selling her business and living in abject misery. A little overkill. My biggest irritation in the book was with the introduction of Connor and Nikki ( I think that was their names Serena's friend and one of the other security guys)..the friend was getting on my nerves and the back and forth she has with her friends was a bit irritating. It irritated me enough to skip her book next and go straight to book 4. I may get around to 3 at some point. All is all, this book was ok..not upset that its in my library.
it was good the chemistry between serina and Damon is incredible. but the sexcscenes are intense!
Like reading books that are a series however not much of a story in this one! Got through this one faster than the previous two. Hopefully next one more of a storyline!!!!
I love the whole series. They are full of wonderful characters, descriptive writing, and stimulating plots. Way to go Maya Banks!
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
I would recommend this book if you are not afraid of explicit content. I debate whether this is good or bad behavior for a woman but it is her choice and she can always say no.....
No specific memorable moments but I enjoyed hearing about all the other characters this series is about.
I am not enjoying the narrator, but I am able to tolerate her. She speaks too fast and there is something about her tone that sounds fake.
These books are toe curlers so beware....
Mother of 3, grandmother of 6, retired nurse and substance abuse counselor. Thrilled to have the time to read or listen to books again.
if your into sado masochism, male domination, inflicting and receiving pain and humiliation on another person for sexual fulfillment then this is the book for you. i found it simply pathetic as were all the characters. i have in the past really enjoyed Ms. Banks stories however i am rapidly changing my mind and am starting to wonder about where and how she is doing or obtaining her research?
I'm truly not a prude but for me this goes way beyond what is healthy.
really can't speak about the narration as the contents of the book so horrified me that i'm at a loss as to if she was any good. read at your own risk unless your into this kind of thing!
I loved the way he seemed so strong and sexy and I cant actually see him
The surrender of Persephone. They both have very dominate sexual encounters and they both have great love stories.
not to much except that I would have like her voice of the main character to be more defined
The storyline itself
Damon he is just so hot
all pretty good
Yes once i started i couldnt stop listening
Love this book and are starting to read the others in this series
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.
Hot Hot Hot!!!!!
It's all good.
Damon, wow what a man!!!
I did listen to it all in one sitting!!
This book is very sexually explict, which when it's done right, and in my opinion it was very right, is good. If strong sexual content bothers you then it's not for you. Otherwise, it's well worth a credit or the purchase price. I loved the first book in this series. Liked this one even better and I'm looking foward to book 3!!!!!!!
