Summary

From the "must-read author" (Romance Junkies) of Letting Go - the new novel in her Surrender Trilogy.

In her sensational Breathless Trilogy, New York Times best-selling author Maya Banks tested the boundaries of desire. In her new trilogy, there’s only one thing left to do: cross them. Now, the story continues as one woman, haunted by the shadows of the past, explores the possibilities of a new beginning in ways she never could have imagined.…

Kylie sees the way Jensen looks at her. The dark promise in his eyes. That rough edge of dominance she knows he possesses. But dominance is the one thing that frightens her above all else. She and her brother barely survived a childhood steeped in violence and abuse. She could never give up total control and submit to a man. Especially a man like Jensen. Could she?

Jensen sees the shadows in Kylie’s eyes. Knows he has to tread very carefully or risk losing any chance he has with her. All he wants is the opportunity to show her that dominance doesn’t equal pain, bondage, or discipline. That emotional surrender is the most powerful of all, and that to submit fully to him will fulfill the aching void in her heart in a way nothing else ever will.

Super book with great narration

Loved this book, but especially liked Alix Dales narration. Also highly recommend her narration on the Cherrie Lynn books

The Narrator ruined it for me

The story itself is okay, I wish I had actually read this one instead of listening to it. It isn't my favorite Maya Banks, The characters are TOO damaged to let the story really heat up.

The real deal breaker though was the narration. Kylie is sooooo whiney I spent a good deal of time gritting my teeth thru her portions, And her man's tones, sounds a little like......well.....Forrest Gump. My internal loop kept playing "Run Forrest Run" and Stewie's "Mom Mom Mom Mommy Mommy Mommy." which made it a little tough to get into the parts that actually were hot.

Great story, horrible narration.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would change the narration, it was absolutely horrible. The male voice was hideous. female sounded like a 12 year old.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Giving In?

I liked the whole story. Very romantic and touching.

What didn’t you like about Alix Dale’s performance?

The male voice was so unnatural and weird sounding it was like listening to an alien with a fake southern accent. The female voice I could half way deal with.

Did Giving In inspire you to do anything?

No.

Any additional comments?

The male voice sucked all the romance out of the book. The story would have been much more romantic and sexy with a different male voice. Giving the narration one star was generous.

Hideous narration

In such a competitive field there is NO excuse.
Enjoy author, will need to take a break before I can actually read this series. The unbelievably bad narration keeps replaying in my mind when the characters speak....and yes, Forrest Gump was male lead!!!

Narrator is so bad...

I'm switching to kindle version. This narrator's voice grates so bad it's insufferable. The longer I listen, the more it make me cringe.
