Surrender to Me is the fourth book in the Wicked Lovers series and while I liked Hunter from the previous books, there were times where he just scared me. I knew there would be BDSM so it wasn’t that. I just felt that Kata and Hunter stood on opposite sides of the spectrum. Hunter is an all-or-nothing kind of guy, so he expected a full surrender from Kata. But Kata just kept resisting and resisting until it just got annoying. I understand her conflicts with her stepfather and her independent nature, but all her crying and whining started to get to me.

She didn’t want to submit, so Hunter folds and agrees to sign the divorce papers and give her a romantic night without any BDSM kink. But then she realizes that she doesn’t want that and insist on doing things Hunter’s way. And let me tell you, when she surrenders completely, it’s worth it all for Hunter.

The last 100 pages or so changed the book for me. The sex scenes were somehow hotter, the pace picks up and I just thought it made up for Hunter’s sometimes scary dominance and Kata’s whining.

Also, there are appearances by Jack, Deke, Luc and Tyler! Logan, Hunter’s brother is there too and I am both scared and intrigued about him since I know for a fact that he likes administering pain for pleasure. His sex dungeon…*ahem* I mean, living room was just a tease for his upcoming book Belong To Me.

And lastly, I need to gush about Black’s writing style. I LOVE IT! Despite the hot-as-hell sex scenes and likeable characters, she writes with such ease that I always fly through her books and then kick myself for devouring them so quickly. I love love LOVE Black!

Favourite Quote:
“It’s just…” She scrubbed a hand across her face. “I keep looking for someone to share life with, someone patient. Not afraid of a mop or the stove. Even-tempered, understanding, not allergic to emotion.” She closed her eyes momentarily. “Someone sweet.”
Hunter stifled a grimace. She was describing a female with a penis.

  1. Somehow this one fell short for me. Still good, but not up to what I expected. Yes, I am anxious for Logan’s story, but who I really want is Tyler’s.
