Reluctant Surrender | [Riley Murphy]

Reluctant Surrender

A tightly wound woman with a secret persona meets a prominent dom who's itching to make her unravel. Renowned dom Ethan White offers straitlaced Colin Reneaux an escape from her conventional life. Reluctant at first, she eventually agrees to explore her secret desires with BDSM tapas - small bites of erotic d/s scenarios featuring Ethan as her captor, boss, interrogator, professor, and master. Each eye-opening and sex-fueled scene leaves her more breathless than the last. Ethan's surprised to find himself challenged by Colin's strength.

Audible Editor Reviews

Ellora’s Cave 2012 SuperStar Award winner Riley Murphey’s BDSM erotic romance Reclaimed Surrender was a 2013 Epic eBook Award finalist. With vocal timbres ranging from suggestions of repressed tension to those of physical and emotional release, Bonnie Jones performs this tantalizing exploration of human nature and sexual fantasy. The story itself brings a straight-laced photographer into the world of doms and subs first as a job and then, one increasingly complex scenario at a time, as a fully engaged and aroused participant. A threat from her past, however, upsets the balance in the slave and master relationship, causing a switch in roles and raising the question, "Who is really serving whom?"

Publisher's Summary

A tightly wound woman with a secret persona meets a prominent dom who's itching to make her unravel.

Renowned dom Ethan White offers straitlaced Colin Reneaux an escape from her conventional life. Reluctant at first, she eventually agrees to explore her secret desires with BDSM tapas - small bites of erotic d/s scenarios featuring Ethan as her captor, boss, interrogator, professor, and master. Each eye-opening and sex-fueled scene leaves her more breathless than the last.

Ethan's surprised to find himself challenged by Colin's strength. He quickly connects with her inner submissive, drawing them deeper into the d/s dynamic. Soon she becomes the woman he swore he'd never need, and he, the master she craves. Together they find the perfect balance…until someone from Ethan's past returns, someone bent on revenge. Ethan's left with no choice. He must break Colin's heart to save her from the vengeance that threatens her dream.

But Colin has other ideas. Like whose heart should break and who should ultimately surrender…

    Story
    "RIDICULOUS NARRATOR!!"
    Any additional comments?

    Ms. Jones narrated like she had some sort of speaking disorder. My 5 year old reads better than this woman. I enjoyed the story so I attempted to ignore the strange pauses and word inflections. It sounds as if Ms. Jones is reading news broadcast ...like she's reading from a teleprompter. Or maybe this woman has no concept of punctuation. Whatever the issue, it was completely distracting and I found myself constantly having to repeat her words in my head in order to understand what it was the author truly meant to say. Audible, PLEASE FIND A NEW NARRATOR FOR THIS BOOK! It could've been great but was utterly ruined by the current narrator.

    Story
    "Horrible Naration"
    What did you like best about Reluctant Surrender? What did you like least?

    I found the story line lacking. Very simplistic. Author isolated the main characters, so almost the entire book is just between the male and female protagonists.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Riley Murphy? Why or why not?

    Only after finding reviews that showed she had more character development and a wider reaching story line than shown in this book.


    What didn’t you like about Bonnie D. Jones’s performance?

    Bonnie Jones' narration almost ruined the whole thing for me. I stopped listening several times and only came back because I did not want to waste the purchase. She pauses in the middle of sentences and puts emphasis on the wrong words in sentences. The speed at which she read the book was too slow for me. I finally found that if I set my reader to play this at 2x speed, I was able to finish the book.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.
