Publisher's Summary

For five years, Serena has run Fantasy Incorporated and has devoted her time to fulfilling her clients' fantasies, never her own - until now....

Her most secret desire is to give ownership of her body to a man. Someone who will command her, pleasure her, and have complete authority over her. So she seeks out Damon Roche, owner of an exclusive sex club and a man strong enough to make her do anything he wants. Anything. Together they'll journey into a world she's only dreamed of. She's given the opportunity to immerse herself in a different life while her normal one waits for her to return whenever she wishes.

Damon has no desire to let her go, however. Serena is the woman he's long searched for, and it's up to him to convince her to stay when the game is all over with. He wants their fantasy to become their reality and for Serena to remain his pampered, cherished submissive.

    "Good addition to the series :)"

    3-3.5 stars

    This was a good story. I liked Damon and Serena (for the most part) and their story was enjoyable overall.

    Serena is the owner of a business where she makes people's dreams/fantasies come true (ones that are non-sexual in nature). With all her helping others get their fantasies fulfilled, Serena feels there's a lacking in her life. She's had dreams of being owned by a man and being submissive to him. She doesn't know how to go about it but she wants to experience that in real life, even if she's not prepared to make it a permanent lifestyle.

    Damon is a businessman who owns a sex/BDSM club known as "The House". Damon is looking for the right woman, someone that will be submissive to him sexually and be owned by him on a permanent basis. He thought he had found the right woman for him years before but it didn't work out. Damon won't take second best so he's been patiently waiting for the right woman to show herself.

    Serena is BFFs with Faith (the heroine from book #1, Sweet Surrender) and Julie and happens to mention to them that she's had dreams of being owned by a man. Faith and Julie are a bit surprised but once she realizes that Serena is serious, Faith agrees to help her out. Faith admits that she and Gray are in a Dom/Sub relationship and that she has a friend (Damon) that she thinks can help Serena out. Originally, Damon was supposed to be helping to find a man to fulfill the fantasy but as soon as Damon realizes it's for Serena, he decides that he's going to be the man.

    Damon knows that Serena doesn't seriously see her fantasies as something that would extend long term but he's been waiting for his perfect woman for years and hasn't found her so a month long fantasy could be a nice reprieve from the loneliness. They start their arrangement and things go really well between them, the only downfall (for both of them) is the fact that it's not real and will end in a month. Damon soon realizes that he'd like Serena to be his permanently but Serena is too worried about the fact that she's a strong woman and she's convinced that being submissive makes you weak. She's so hung up on this that she is the main issue causing pain and drama between her and Damon. Thankfully, her BFFs decide enough is enough and interfere enough that Serena and Damon are able to work things out and end the story heading towards a HEA together.

    This was an enjoyable story. Serena...well I liked her but she had issues and wasn't exactly smart about how she dealt with them. TBH, Serena turned into a hot mess towards the end and barely kept off my "annoying heroines shelf". Damon was a good hero and I liked him. The story mostly revolved around their relationship and it was good. There was a lot of buildup in this story for the possible relationship between Nathan and Julie so I'm looking forward to the next one so I can see how it all works out. :)

    "Good Dom/sub story line."

    After reading the first story I couldn't wait to read more about Damon! So glad I didn't have to wait to long to find out. He is sweet, attentive and powerful and he sounds like a magnificent Dom.
    There were parts of the story where my comfort levels were breached but it made me realize this isn't really my thing. I enjoyed the first story because Grey wasn't looking for the full lifestyle as Damon is. Also Grey had a bit more masculine "grit" and "edge" and I think that is what drew me into him a bit more.

    Great story but the "full lifestyle" is a little past my comfort level.

    "All Sex- no Plot"
    What disappointed you about Sweet Persuasion?

    The book lacked a story line. Chapter after chapter of explicit sex scenes gets boring after a while. Now that I think back, the other Maya Banks books I've read, they all seem to suffer from the same problem. I don't think I'll read any more of her books.

    "nothing "sweet" about it"

    if your into sado masochism, male domination, inflicting and receiving pain and humiliation on another person for sexual fulfillment then this is the book for you. i found it simply pathetic as were all the characters. i have in the past really enjoyed Ms. Banks stories however i am rapidly changing my mind and am starting to wonder about where and how she is doing or obtaining her research?
    I'm truly not a prude but for me this goes way beyond what is healthy.
    really can't speak about the narration as the contents of the book so horrified me that i'm at a loss as to if she was any good. read at your own risk unless your into this kind of thing!

    If you could sum up Sweet Persuasion in three words, what would they be?

    Hot Hot Hot!!!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sweet Persuasion?

    It's all good.


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

    Damon, wow what a man!!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to it all in one sitting!!


    Any additional comments?

    This book is very sexually explict, which when it's done right, and in my opinion it was very right, is good. If strong sexual content bothers you then it's not for you. Otherwise, it's well worth a credit or the purchase price. I loved the first book in this series. Liked this one even better and I'm looking foward to book 3!!!!!!!

    "I liked...but total submission???"

    II really like how each Dom is completely different in these books. Maya Bank does a great job in creating her characters. However, that being said, Serena gave Damien total submission. WTF! No way on this planet! 24/7 submission is humanly impossible for an independent woman like Serena, but Banks creates a pretty good fantasy. The characters seem soooo believable too. Great Job... Great Smex... Worth the Credit. Not a buy, but a free credit.
