When we first meet Colin she seems almost meek, but one scorching hot encounter with Ethan cracks that facade. We find out that she has a few secrets hidden deep inside with at least one that is just bursting to get out. She longs to have a man dominate her and Ethan gave her a small taste of what is possible in that kind of relationship. When she is coerced into spending a week with him Colin knows that her world is about to change. Through a series of BDSM tapas Ethan reveals her inner submissive and brings her out to play. Damn that man is one hot bossy man. I loved this time that they spent together both in and out of scenes. These two have some sizzling chemistry between them and I couldn't help but want more of their story when it came to an end. I love that Colin was learning her strength through her submission. She is such a strong character and I would've hated to see her compromise in the process of finding herself and her man too. I also loved that throughout her journey that she never lost that witty sense of humor. Such a fantastic story. I can't wait to read the next one in the series.
I give Reluctant Surrender 4 hearts!
About the Book
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…
