Overview

THE FIRST BOOK OF THE SURRENDER TRILOGY

In her sensational Breathless Trilogy, #1 New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks tested the boundaries of desire. In her new trilogy, there’s only one thing left to do: cross them. And never have the consequences of erotic exploration been so irresistibly inviting, so shockingly intimate, and so totally unexpected…

LETTING GO

Josslyn found perfection once, and she knows she’ll never find it again. Now widowed, she seeks the one thing her beloved husband couldn’t give her: dominance. Lonely, searching for an outlet for her grief and wanting only a brief taste of the perfection she once enjoyed, she seeks what she’s looking for at an exclusive club that caters to people indulging in their most hedonistic fantasies. She never imagined that what she’d find would be the one man who’s long been a source of comfort—and secret longing. Her husband’s best friend.

Dash has lived in an untenable position for years: in love with his best friend’s wife but unwilling to act on that attraction. He’d never betray his best friend. And so he’s waited in the wings, offering Joss unconditional support and comfort as she works past her grief, hoping for the day when he can offer her more.

When he finds her in a club devoted to the darker edges of desire, he’s furious because he thinks she has no idea what she’s getting herself into. Until she explains in detail what it is she wants. What she needs. As realization sets in, he is gripped by fierce, unwavering determination. If she wants dominance, he is the only man who will introduce her to that world. He is the only man who will touch her, cherish her…love her. And the only man she’ll ever submit to.

    ~Reviewed by FRANCESCA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

    I was so very scared to crack this book open.  I like Maya Banks but the past few books I’ve read haven’t been my favorites.  However, I was excited!  This is a new series and as a good cover ho, I didn’t even read the blurbs.  I was pleasantly surprised to see that this is a more mature romance.  Gone are the unstable 20 year olds full of angst!  Thank you Maya Banks!  The setup of this story was wonderfully refreshing and one that I happen to like a lot.

    The heroine in this story, Josslyn, lost her husband three years ago in an accident.  She’s been a shell of her old self for that long.  But she’s decided that it’s time to let go and live her life.  And that entails exploring what her husband was never able to give her.  She feels the need to be a submissive.  And for that, she takes matters into her own hands and decides to go to a club.  I give her lots of props.  She’s a grown woman, who understands her desires and knows it’s time for her to get them.  She won’t settle for less!

    Then of course there’s hedeath husband’s best friend and business partner, Dash.  Dash has been in love with her for years, always knowing he wouldn’t ever have her.  And after his best friend died, he’s been there for support.  A friend, but never pushing for more because she wasn’t ready.  And then he sees her walking into the club and he knows if she wants to experiment it won’t be with anyone but him.

    The backstory between these characters really propelled the story forward for me.  I love that they got a chance at love after thinking it was all gone, and that there’s an HEA for them.  Their chemistry was great, the sex was hot.  Dash is sexy, even though he was a Dom with kiddie gloves sometimes.  His affection for Josslyn came through with everything he did.  He just might be the kind of hero you wish would come to life and find you.

    Fans of the Sweet series will be happy to find that LETTING GO goes back to the basics of that series.  We even get to visit Damon’s club (and I am still secretly waiting for a cameo from the hunky Dom and club owner).  The only thing that this books didn’t have that was a more prominent element to the Sweet series is the suspense.  The conflict in this book pretty much revolved around the characters and their lives.  The acceptance of the BDSM lifestyle and letting go of the past.  My only complaint with this book was that I wanted a bit more conflict.  Yes, I know. Masochist that I am.

    I am very excited to see what Ms. Banks does with the next book.  Loving the setup already!

    very thrown together

    It's as though to make the book have more pages many of the passages were repeated, after awhile the book became tedious, very disappointed.

    Highly recommended

    This story was a lovely and well written story that only Maya could. Taking a woman through the stages of dominance that she needed but het dead husband couldn't and wouldn't have done for her. Loved the characters in this book. Now I'm waiting for the next book.
