Bondage, spanking, sex parties, power play and more, all in one extra-kinky book collected by editrix extraordinaire, Rachel Kramer Bussel.

Whether in a hotel room, dungeon or even at a deli with instructions from the right dom, these women go deep into the heart of submission to experience the thrill of physical and mental surrender. A woman discovers that "Pink Cheeks" is more than just an online nickname in Fiona Locke's story, while Gwen Masters asks - and answers - "How Bad Do You Want It?" Alison Tyler's "The Hardest Part" exudes the powerful eroticism that anticipation of the next hard smack brings.

What did you love best about Surrender?
I loved that it was short stories written by different authors, and they were really well written. The narrator even changed up the tone and voices for each story. I don't listen to this genre often, but really enjoyed Surrender, it was very naughty and sexy!!! Much better than 50 Shades in my opinion.
What did you like best about this story?
I loved the playful, naughty, submissive tone of all the stories.
Which scene was your favorite?
The London O.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There are 22 stories...one in particular was really well written and voiced, about a married couple who use a little BDSM to get through the wife having cancer...surprisingly touching and sexy at the same time.
Any additional comments?
Highly recommended!! Very playful, gets a girl to thinking, if you know what I mean. My boyfriend also enjoyed listening .

Any additional comments?
I like a lot of sex in my erotica, so I tend towards the compilation types rather than a novel. I mean, don't get me wrong... I like a good erotic novel, but they are few and far between; most end up being romance novels with a few steamy sex scenes. I much prefer explicit, raunchy, xxx stories which most would probably say are too extreme. I love the sleeping beauty series by anne rice, for instance.
anyway, the stories here are varied and most are adequately explicit for my tastes. However, I think the narrator did a horrible job with them. She isn't really cut out for erotica, in my opinion. she wasn't sultry at all, and was almost robotic at times. it all felt very rushed to me. she could have slowed down for sexy emphasis, and put a little purr into her voice here and there and every story would have been improved ten fold.
that being said, I'm still glad I bought the book, but I would have given it 5 stars had the narrator been a little sexier.
