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.

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.
I would change the narration, it was absolutely horrible. The male voice was hideous. female sounded like a 12 year old.
I liked the whole story. Very romantic and touching.
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.
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 line was a lot more romance, very little BDSM . Parts of it was erotic, other parts blah blah blah, the narration was awful!!! Her whiny nasal voice was almost too much. So sorry she read this series.
No One I Know.
When I got the first book, I got the entire trilogy. What a waste. It's as bad as the first one. I wish I could attach my review from book one onto this review. Very disappointed in Mrs. Banks with this trilogy. All of her other books that I've read (KGI, Pregnancy series, both Highlander Series) have been out of sight. DO NOT WASTE YOUR CREDIT ON THIS OR THE OTHER BOOKS IN THE TRILOGY.
It's nothing like Brethless or Coulters, not even close to being good.
Kristen Potter off the top of my head. Rosalyn Landor does a good American accent, Julia Gibson perhaps would've been better than Alix Dale.
The Entire Book
DON'T WASTE YOUR CREDIT OR MONEY ON THIS BOOK.
Most definitely! It's wonderful love story. Not about thes ex.
The moment Kylie realized she was in love
When Kyle fought for Jensen
When Jensen and Kylie broke up.
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!
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.
Very hard to listen for long as the elocution was piercing. Interesting twist on a Maya Banks Submissive storyline
Maya, bring back the historical romances!
