Review & Book Tour ~*~ Surrender to Me by Ella Jade

Surrender to Me
By: Ella Jade

Blurb ~*~

What happens when a Dominant falls for his not-so-submissive attorney?

Martin Abrams, owner of Master M’s BDSM club, has become unfulfilled with his lifestyle. Ever since his sub, Gracie, left to marry her true love, Martin has lost his way. Living the life of the head Dominant in his circle isn’t as appealing as it once was. Something seems to be missing.

Sassy lawyer Arianna Covington relocates to New York City after a humiliating divorce. She’s looking for a fresh start when she agrees to become Martin’s exclusive attorney. She’s intrigued by his domineering personality and wants to know why women kneel at his feet.

Their attraction is undeniable despite Ari’s initial beliefs that she will never submit to Martin’s desires. But Martin is up for the challenge. Arianna is more than he ever imagined in a woman. He vows to claim her heart, with or without the games. Who will surrender first?

Featuring Cade and Gracie from Make Me Stay.

Review ~*~

There is a lot to enjoy within the pages of Surrender to Me.  The characters aren't quite what you expect when you hear this is a BDSM type of story.  Arianna is bossy  independent and very used to having her way.  Martin is exactly the same.  Neither can deny the physical attraction they feel but can they compromise enough to make things pleasurable for the both of them?

Positives. . . Surrender to Me is very hot.  It is realistic in how Arianna and Martin both learn the art of give and take.  There are a lot of emotions running through the story that gives it some up and down feeling.  Negative . . . I felt there was really a lack of conflict between these characters.  They didn't really fight, there wasn't much of a big drama to tug them apart or pull them together

I can honestly say, I couldn't put the book down.  I read it quickly and with great pleasure.  And while at times I thought the lack of conflict a negative, there are times it was a nice change not to have to wade through the drama and let the character focus on more mundane but very realistic issues of merging his lifestyle and hers together and dealing with everyday concerns.

I am looking forward to picking up Make Me Stay so I can play catch up with the characters and can't wait to see if Ella Jade gives us more of this series.  I really want to read about the others we met!!
