Due to Jensen’s past, he is all too familiar with abuse
and can see the effects in Kylie’s eyes. Although being dominant is in his very
nature, he would give it up to be with her. Jensen knows he has to tread
lightly with Kylie, but though he longs for her body, it is her emotional
surrender that he longs for most of all.
When Kylie breaks down during a dinner business meeting
with Jensen and then he witnesses her in the midst of her nightly nightmares,
she figures he will lose all interest in her. But he hangs in there, desperate
to make her see that true dominance doesn’t involve pain, bondage or discipline
and that submitting to him will fulfill her in ways she never dreamed. Will she
give up control and submit to Jensen and the dominance she fears most of all?
An emotion-packed, erotically-charged tale, GIVING IN,
the second book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Maya Banks’
SURRENDER trilogy, is a poignant contemporary romance that will sweep you up
and not let you go until the very last page. Kylie and Jensen are both
vulnerable people and have suffered horrendous pasts. Throughout the story
Jensen proved to have a patient, tender side, despite his stalwart demeanor to
everyone, except Kylie. Readers will not be able to help falling for this guy.
Kylie’s struggle to overcome the abuse at the hands of her father and the death
of her brother will touch your heart. As these two come together to test the
boundaries of desire, they will take your breath away. The addition of the
secondary characters, Kylie’s two friends; Chessy and Josslyn, adds even more
depth to the story.
This riveting story of abuse, grief, dominance,
friendship, healing, romance and love is just an example of why Ms. Banks
remains a constant on my list of must-read authors. After reading the first two
stories, I cannot wait to experience Chessy and Tate’s story, TAKING IT IN, the
final book in this delectable series, which is due to be released in August
2014. For an exceptionally hot story with loveable, realistic characters, emotional
situations and healing, pick up a copy of GIVING IN. While you are at it, be
sure to also pick up a copy of the first book in this wonderful series, LETTING
