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!!!!
The raw emotion, fear, and lust all into one book! Just when you least expect the love to grow, it hits you like a train! Serena-such a shy and unspoken person. Damien-the dom who wants control........Fair warning though-YOU WILL CRY!!!!!!
Serena-I can relate to her in so many ways!
She puts such expression and love for the role into the reading of the book
CRIED!!!! Sad thing is it wasn't even the main concern of the book-something so off topic, you almost forget about it
A must read in the collection!
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....
Sweet, sensual, love
When a fantasy is fulfilled
When Serena decides to fullfill her own fantasy, not just her clients , and how she does it
I found the thought of a sex club...well different, and Serena's willingness to be auctioned as a slave...very different
It was a good storyline again, as always Maya Banks delivers.
Hot Sexy Love!
You pretty much can't go too wrong with any of her books. Shayla Black is another similar writer
Damon - very kind heart in a dominant man
Damon is an amazing character how knows exactly what he wants and what he's not willing to settle for. Serena gets caught up in her own professions of allowing people to live their dreams out in reality. As Damon leads her through what she believes is only her fantasy, she soon discovers its more than that. But Damon character provides what she needs patiently. The overall story is beautiful, it displays complete trust and vulnerably and both parties surrender.
