I find D/s books hot and Shayla Black certainly delivers a lot of heat in this book.

I understood the characters so well. Hunter is an alpha male and needs to be a Dom in the bedroom however Kata has lots of reservations about being a submissive. Truthfully, her reservations are valid. She's had years of witnessing her mother being dominated by her bully stepfather and that's what she associates with a male dominating a female.
Often when I read D/s books I get frustrated because the female character gives in so easily. I liked that this entire book was a journey for Kata.

So much happened in this book. Their love was quick, fast and they fell hard for each other. Toss in a quick Vegas marriage, angst regarding the threat to her life, her sick mother, Hunter being shipped out again and their constant conflict over control; it made for a great read.

I'm kinda on the fence about the ending though. Her submissiveness made her sounda a bit like a robot.

HASH(0xa73819cc) out of 5 stars Surrender to Me by Shayla Black March 15 2011
By A. Schreiner - Published on
Format: Paperback
For Kata's twenty-fifth birthday she flies to Vegas with her "friend with benefits" lover Ben and friends to celebrate. Months ago she had told Ben one of her fantasies was to have a ménage - and Ben has decided this trip is the perfect opportunity to give her this gift. He calls up his friend Hunter Edgington, a Navy SEAL who is on a week vacation while recovering from being shot. Hunter takes one look at Kata and it is love at first sight.

When Ben ends up too drunk to make it into the bedroom for the ménage, Hunter is more than happy to have Kata all to himself. Hunter is a dominant, and he can sense a submissive nature in Kata, although she vehemently denies it. When Kata's life is endangered, Hunter becomes her protection.

Let me start by saying I didn't like Surrender to Me. Hunter is a very alpha hero - we are talking all out, no holds bar alpha. He is a dominant and when he finds Kata, he immediately recognizes the submissive nature in her, even though she denies it. That is all fine and dandy. I love alpha heroes, if done well. An early description of Hunter:

She could decorate the house however she wanted, name the pets, choose the vacations. He'd give her a lot of latitude during their married life, but he was in charge when it came to sex and her safety.


"Your obedience goes straight to my cock honey."

Okay - sometimes reading about an alpha hero like this can be fun. But I don't feel like Hunter is a good hero at all.

First, I don't believe in love at first sight. Lust, instant attraction? Sure. Love - knowing you want to be with this person forever after knowing them for less than one hour, or even 24 hours? No. So coming into this book with that personal view, when Hunter meets Kata and has talked to her for all of 30 seconds and then thinks to himself:

"The moment he'd touched her, something inside him had jarred, then settled in place. He'd known she would be his."

And then:

"He couldn't wait to figure out exactly why he was going to love her."

I just don't buy this instant love. I'm not saying this could never happen in real life, but it doesn't work for me.

Fast forward a couple of hours - Hunter and Kata spend a very passionate time in bed where Hunter starts to introduce Kata to the Dom/Sub relationship, (minus Ben who was too drunk to participate). Kata is not left out with the instant love, by thinking as they have sex, "At that moment, she could never imagine being without him." They don't know each other! They haven't talked, only had sex. I just don't understand how this can be a basis for love and total commitment to each other.

And then something happens which just made my mouth drop open. Kata kind of freaks out after having sex and tries to ditch Hunter and starts doing tequila shots. Hunter tracks her down - offers her food and coffee because he knows how much she has been drinking. Again, we are told:

"There it was, the truth that had been simmering in his consciousness, the reason he was pursuing her so hard. Suddenly, it was crystal. He wanted her permanently."

At this point, the chapter closes out. The next chapter, the next morning, Kata wakes up married to Hunter! And he is shocked and dismayed she doesn't remember getting married (um..she was wasted) and she runs out on him. Sorry - that is creepy. He is so possessive of her, he has to marry her, when he knows she is drunk?

And this passage bothers me so much:

If there'd been another way, Hunter would have chosen it, but time and her fears weren't on his side. Last night, he'd never expected to meet someone he connected with on every level, then marry her almost immediately, but things happened; he dealt. That was the nature of his job.

This wasn't his most noble moment, but if being a SEAL had taught him anything, it was that sometimes you had to fight dirty to complete a mission. And if his father had taught him anything, it was that a man must be ready to do whatever necessary to hold on to his woman or lose her forever.

This mind set is creepy and selfish. Marriage is not the only solution he had. How about ask her out on a date? Call her on the phone? Maybe ask her one question about her? There are other ways Hunter. Dragging a drunk girl to the alter, six hours after you met her because you feel possessive is not normal.

At this point, I almost stopped reading, but I was only on page 80. I thought I don't love this marriage, but lets see what Kata has to say about it. She made me keep reading. She wasn't happy, and her reaction is very valid. But then her life becomes endangered, and she needs a safe house. She chooses to go with Hunter into hiding, and I liked this decision. She doesn't know who is after her, but she assumes it is someone very dangerous. But then things fall apart again for me.

Hunter introduces Kata to the D/s lifestyle. Kata rebels, but Hunter keeps assuring her that this is the type of lifestyle she needs. That deep down she is a submissive. Which is fine - I've read lots of books where the heroine doesn't realize this is what she needs. But as I continued reading, their constant battle made me uncomfortable. Squirmy. It didn't feel romantic at all. Hunter came across way, way too pushy. Kata would finally submit, but it didn't feel authentic. Sometimes it felt like she did it just to shut him up. I didn't like it. At all. I can blame a lot of it on Hunter's completely controlling and pushy attitude but I also find fault with Kata. You can tell me all you want that she is submissive on the inside, but if I never see that, then the hero is never going to work in this situation.

And don't even get me started on the end. Her actions when she comes back to Hunter at the end felt completely fake. Hunter and I didn't get along. I don't recommend this one.

The Wicked Lovers series is one of my favorite erotic series. This one doesn't disappoint. It's the story of Hunter, a Navy SEAL on leave and Kata, a parole officer with a long history that's made it hard for her to truly connect to a lover. They meet in Vegas. Kata's friend with benefits, Ben, has a surprise for her.Kata has always fantasized about a menage a trois and he's brought in his buddy Hunter to make it come true.What Ben doesn't count on is the fact that Hunter is wild about her the moment he sees her and suddenly doesn't want to share. Ben makes it easy by getting drunk and passing out. After several hours of amazing sex, Hunter and Kata feel a deep connection. They impulsively get married at a Vegas wedding chapel, but the next morning Kata rethinks the whole thing. Hunter is so overwhelmingly alpha and dominant that she's utterly unsure she wants a relationship with him. He's into BDSM and Kata, while attracted to him and his lifestyle thinks it's not for her.She leaves him in Vegas, but he follows her back. It's a good thing since someone is stalking Kata and Hunter has to save her life. I loved this book for the deep connection between the characters. They fight, but he's the only man who could bring her to the place she needs to be. Also - great follow up on beloved characters! I loved seeing Jack and Morgan, Deke and Kimber and Luc and Alyssa again. Can't wait for Tyler's book.

HASH(0xa7381fa8) out of 5 stars Seriously? Aug. 7 2011
By kp - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book was ridiculous. Hunter was the WORST example of a Dom I have ever seen. He completely disregarded the needs of his submissive to satisfy his own. He decides within minutes of seeing Kata that he wants her forever. Supposedly he is an experienced Dominant, but his actions contradict that. The very foundation of a D/s relationship is trust, and Hunter takes a woman he just met to her suite and proceeds to dominate without any dialogue or boundaries determined. Kata has no experience or training as a submissive, yet he thinks he can just tell her she is a submissive and she will accept it when there isn't a bond of trust between them because they JUST MET. He does not KNOW her, and therefore has no understanding of the dynamic between Kata's mother and her stepfather, Gordon. But even once Hunter sees the interaction between Kata's mother and stepfather, does he try to work with Kata through her fears? NO! He is so obsessed with his needs and his time limit, that he forces more domination on her instead of building trust. This Dom was disgusting and impossible to respect. I could not even accept that his care of Kata was for her benefit. It felt as though everything he did was still in his own interest to make sure his needs were met. And the ending? Instead of building the relationship between the two of them, she receives training from another Domme? Great way to begin a relationship. "Sorry, husband. I could not trust and submit to you, but I found someone else and trusted them enough to work through my issues. Let's stay married, yeah?" This book was a pathetic portrayal of a D/s relationshp.

Not one of my favorite Wicked Lovers books, Surrender to Me, the fourth installment, but still a good read.

This is Hunter and Kata's story.

Called in to help fulfill his army buddy's "neighbor friend" sexual fantasy...a menage a tois....Hunter meets Kata in Las Vegas and it's lust at first sight. After a drinking the night through, Kata wakes to find that she's gone and married Hunter. A beefy hunk of Dominance....oh the shame!

Any who, someone is after Kata and threatening her life. Hunter being the good husband and Dom, he wants to protect her and keep her safe, all while she is terrifed of submitting totally to Hunter.

Kata is seriously one of the most annoying people I ever had to pleasure to read about, lol. She is so absolutely terrified of submitting to her husband for fear of losing who she really is as a person. Ok, I'm sure it's very understandable given her family history, but sometimes you just gotta go with your gut, Kata! ;-) Which of course, she finally does.

When the opportunity arises that she will lose doesn't take her but seconds to change her mentality on the whole situation. At that part, I seriously was like "really?", just like that? Fighting left and right, tooth and nail through the whole book, trying to get away from her feelings... then without even really needing to think about it she changes all her opinions? Good grief.

Again, still a very good read. I adore all of the characters in the Wicked Lovers series and can't wait to continue on.

On a side note, I tell you what though, I would have LOVED to have read about Kata's training during Hunter's 6 months away...dear lord! Please....Shayla Black...make a novella out of that!!!

HASH(0xa7381fd8) out of 5 stars Super Hot Read June 1 2011

So how do you follow up a deliciously decadent erotic bestseller? With another one even more erotic, more decadent and more delicious. Shayla Black's Wicked Lover series continues with Surrender to Me and the story of Hunter Edgington, a wounded Navy Seal out to do a buddy a favor. But Hunter has his own agenda; grabbing what Hunter likes and wants...which can go a little off the charts.

Hunter is a man of extreme desires and sharing a beautiful woman for a night with a close friend is not beyond his realm of experience. Kata has a birthday wish and Hunter is here to help fulfill her fantasy.

But what he didn't expect is the way this beauty gets under his skin and into his heart. With one look Hunter is no longer interested in sharing and uses his own maneuvers to get this woman all to himself. This is going to be more than a one night stand but Kata is just not ready to play along. She comes with her own baggage; an overbearing and dominant stepfather, a very ill mother who cowers to his every demand, sisters who think they know what is best for her and Hunter's past catching up with him in the form of an unknown killer aiming for her and no understanding of why or who he is. Mix in a hasty marriage, a menage with a stranger, overbearing relatives and lots of hot, sweaty sex and you have a really great novel.

Shayla Black always comes through for her readers. Her ability to combine a suspenseful story and then ease into powerful and sometimes overwhelming passion is the trademark of her novels. Her writing is creative, colorful, intelligent and entertaining. She brings to life characters that are unforgettable and, even better, they will carry on into the next story of this series. Make room in your schedule to spend time with Surrender to Me. And, if you are looking for even more, go back and get to know the Edgingtons and all their friend and relatives in the previous stories of this great series.

If you love romance with an edge, don't miss this!
