Detective Gray Montgomery is on a mission to find the killer of his partner. After a long recovery and no leads, he takes the advice of his partner’s father and follows a lead that takes him to meet Faith Malone, a stranger. With only one goal, to catch a killer, he denies the passion and attraction he feels for Faith. Faith is the sweet, feminine woman he longs to dominate, but he thinks she is only playing games.
Faith is a young woman finding out what she really wants. After many relationships, she knows she wants a man to take care of her. A man she can surrender her heart, body and mind too. When her latest relationship ends amicably, she starts researching BDSM on the internet and finds The House and Damon the owner. Damon leads her through The House cumulating in a spanking by a Dom that does nothing for her, until Gray arrives. Gray showing up changes everything and now she knows what she wants.
But there is a real threat to Faith and Gray must man up and decide what he feels for Faith is more than a game or even a mission.
Sweet Surrender was a good beginning to a series I am looking forward to reading. Most of the love scenes happen towards the end of the book, but they are hot and fast, one coming upon the last one fast. No pun intended. The book is erotica and has some deep sexual scenes including M/M/F, anal sex, bondage, and spankings. If this isn’t your cup of tea, then this book won’t interest you.
The plot had a few transparent scenes. You know the bad guy up front and his connection to Faith. Faith is the innocent, young girl, but not so young as to not have dated. You assume she is in her early 20s and Gray is in his 30s. Faith was adopted when she was an adult by Pop Malone, gaining a brother Connor. There is also Micah and Nathan who work for Pop and act like brothers to Faith. Hoping the next books are about this hot guys along with Damon.
Not an outstanding, hold onto your seat and douse yourself with water book. It was fun, but just not something I took too seriously. No deep emotions evoked. No tears. Just a fun book and series that I hope gets better with each book.
