Publisher's Summary

Dallas cop Gray Montgomery is on a mission: find the guy who killed his partner and bring him to justice. So far, he's found a link between the killer and Faith - and if Gray has to get close to her to catch the killer, so be it.

Faith is sweet and feminine, everything Gray wants and desires in a woman, but he suspects she's playing games. No way would she allow a man to call the shots in their relationship. Or would she?

Faith sees in Gray the strong, dominant man she needs, but he seems determined to keep her at a distance. So she takes matters into her own hands to prove to him it's no game she's playing. She's willing to surrender to the right man. Gray would like to be that man. But catching his partner's killer has to be his first priority - until Faith is threatened and Gray realizes he will do anything to protect her....

What the Critics Say

"A measure of BDSM, a flavor of suspense and a whole lot of interpersonal conflict make Banks' latest an utterly compelling story." (Romantic Times)

    Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.

    "Spicy hot!"

    BEWARE: Maya Banks books are HOT! If you are not into Erotica then this book is not for you. If you enjoy your books with spicy sex scenes and weak subplots then this is the perfect series!! Don't say I didn't warn you about this one.....it's a scorcher!
    I enjoy these books because they are wildly entertaining. If I was looking for a literary classic I would go elsewhere.
    My only complaint is the narrator. Caroline Wintour = Coleen Marlo. I felt duped since she is not one of my favorites. She's not bad, just not my favorite.

    Otherwise this one is HOT, HOT, HOT and such a guilty pleasure.

    5 stars for sex scenes
    3 stars for the rest

    "I'm in LOVE with the Sweet Series!"

    After starting with book 4 Sweet Temptation first since that was all that was available - I was excited to see book 1 in audio! I wanted background on the characters I feel in love with! I wanted to know if they were all as kinky and crazy!

    I was so happy that that Sweet Surrender didn't disappoint. I love that Faith decides to go out there and find out what she wants… and boy does she! Great start to the series!

    I have to give credit to the narrator, Caroline Wintour. She does a wonderful job. I know exactly who is "talking" when listening to her!

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    "A GUILTY PLEASURE"

    I love Maya Bank's books they are an intense passionate and sensual journey of love overcoming all obstacles but BEWARE strong sex scenes

    I'm always torn with her books as I do think they should be put under Erotica rather than Romance.

    Worth a credit? Yes but if you're not into the very hot n heavy scenes they I suggest you stay away from this series.

    "Love this Series."

    If you are looking for some books that are like Fifty Shades of Grey this series is great. You will totally fall in love with these guys and the girls of the series. This series is not for prude, the sex scenes are graphic and all include some BDSM or menage so be warned. That said the stories are great with the right amount of steamy love scenes and story.

    The whole series is great. I am going to listen to the Highlander series next.

    Story
    "Should be listed Erotica, my 1st/last Maya book"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, unless they want erotica and do not feel a need to connect to the character(s).


    What could Maya Banks have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    More character developement, more character interaction that was not sex. I do not mind some sex, this goes way beyond the amount in a Nora Robert book, chapter afteer chapter at times. And reader should be well warned, much alternative sex, sex house, and 3 some. Less romance, much more erotica.


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

    Definately not, would seem voyerism.


    Any additional comments?

    If you want sex with less emotional connection this book will meet your desires.

    Story
    "This one just did not tickled my fancy."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This story just did not keep me captive. The romance/erotic moments were a little to cold and unpersonal.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I think I am going to deviate from romance novels for a while. Maybe I am just burned out.


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Wintour – was your favorite?

    Mrs. Wintour did a great job differentiating the different voices of the characters and showing their individual personalities. I give her 5 stars for her performance. It is the story I did not enjoy that much.


    Did Sweet Surrender inspire you to do anything?

    Yes. It inspired me to try a different type of novel for a while. I am going to listen to a light mystery next. Maybe I just need a break from romance/erotic novels.

    I love to read. I love all genres but romance in particular. The hotter and steamy and sexier book is the more I want to read it.

    "Same story-different characters"

    I read in a review before I bought this book that Maya Banks was merely writing the same story with different characters. this is yet another Damsel in distress brought to new sexual heights by another predictable alpha male. As usual, Ms. Banks writes a lovely romance. It is ridiculous that Maya portrays the same female character in every single book. She just simply can't survive without her hero (my best southern lady impression). This helpless female will surely perish if her man doesn't think and shoot her way out if her problems for her! BORING PREDICTABLE

    "Felt like I was listening to porn. Not"

    Too much BS sex before the woman even had a chance to get done with knowing one guy even a day or two he invites another guy into visit every orifice. Have three daughters don't mind if they're a little kinky, but I sure don't want to be an ignorant to OLc

    "Ehhh.....predictable story & terrible narration"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    After reading the reviews, I thought this book would be much more entertaining. Very predictable story line, and narrator's voice ruined the story for me. This was my first Maya Banks book, not sure I'll be purchasing another one any time soon.


    What was most disappointing about Maya Banks’s story?

    The story was very slow, Maya took too long to develop the characters and the plot was boring.


    What didn’t you like about Caroline Wintour’s performance?

    Performance was terrible! Her "character "voices" were cheesy and distracting, her voice is not attractive...became like nails on a chalkboard. Will not listen to any of her other books. Yikes!


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

    Bordom


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to a preview before you use a credit! Wish I wouldn't have wasted a credit on this book.
