Publisher's Summary

From the "must-read author" (Romance Junkies) of Letting Go - the new novel in her Surrender Trilogy.

In her sensational Breathless Trilogy, New York Times best-selling author Maya Banks tested the boundaries of desire. In her new trilogy, there’s only one thing left to do: cross them. Now, the story continues as one woman, haunted by the shadows of the past, explores the possibilities of a new beginning in ways she never could have imagined.…

Kylie sees the way Jensen looks at her. The dark promise in his eyes. That rough edge of dominance she knows he possesses. But dominance is the one thing that frightens her above all else. She and her brother barely survived a childhood steeped in violence and abuse. She could never give up total control and submit to a man. Especially a man like Jensen. Could she?

Jensen sees the shadows in Kylie’s eyes. Knows he has to tread very carefully or risk losing any chance he has with her. All he wants is the opportunity to show her that dominance doesn’t equal pain, bondage, or discipline. That emotional surrender is the most powerful of all, and that to submit fully to him will fulfill the aching void in her heart in a way nothing else ever will.

    Story
    "The Narrator ruined it for me"

    The story itself is okay, I wish I had actually read this one instead of listening to it. It isn't my favorite Maya Banks, The characters are TOO damaged to let the story really heat up.

    The real deal breaker though was the narration. Kylie is sooooo whiney I spent a good deal of time gritting my teeth thru her portions, And her man's tones, sounds a little like......well.....Forrest Gump. My internal loop kept playing "Run Forrest Run" and Stewie's "Mom Mom Mom Mommy Mommy Mommy." which made it a little tough to get into the parts that actually were hot.

    Story
    "Great story, horrible narration."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would change the narration, it was absolutely horrible. The male voice was hideous. female sounded like a 12 year old.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Giving In?

    I liked the whole story. Very romantic and touching.


    What didn’t you like about Alix Dale’s performance?

    The male voice was so unnatural and weird sounding it was like listening to an alien with a fake southern accent. The female voice I could half way deal with.


    Did Giving In inspire you to do anything?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    The male voice sucked all the romance out of the book. The story would have been much more romantic and sexy with a different male voice. Giving the narration one star was generous.

    Story
    "Disappointing Disappointing"
    Would you try another book from Maya Banks and/or Alix Dale?

    The narrator was incredibly whiney - all the men sounded the same. Very Very poor listen. Story was ok - not a typical Maya Banks read. I will not buy another read by the narrator. Hoping this was just a hiccup for Maya and would probably give her another chance.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Very hard to listen for long as the elocution was piercing. Interesting twist on a Maya Banks Submissive storyline


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Completely


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    DISAPPOINTING


    Any additional comments?

    Maya, bring back the historical romances!

    "Wonderful!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Most definitely! It's wonderful love story. Not about thes ex.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Giving In?

    The moment Kylie realized she was in love


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Kyle fought for Jensen


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Jensen and Kylie broke up.


    Any additional comments?

    I Am a big fan of Maya Banks. I absolutely loved this book. Kylie and Jensen both deal with demons that can destroy them. I was surprised by the way this book gripped me and made me laugh, sigh and cry. This is a beautiful story and if someone is not into the heavy romance with all thes ex scenes then this is a book for you. To me it was worth the time and money. We'll done Maya!
